While perusing Pinterest for a very specific style of garment, I went down a rabbit hole on contemporary wedding ensembles and of course I just had to share these with you. They almost make me wish I was walking down the aisle and had reason to wear one myself! They’re all a modern take on wedding ensembles that hold on to the traditional aspects of a full on gown.

Yesterday, the St. Vincentian brand called Poshelle launched their Easter collection titled Bloom. The collection is an array of swim pieces that are made from the most gorgeous floral patterns hence the name Bloom!
