Style + Happy Hour

Happy Hour: Wedding Weekend Libations

Where did the time go?  One day, we were engaged.  Then, we were booking venues.  And now, after months of planning, it is officially my wedding weekend.  It feels incredibly surreal to type that phrase.

The Blushing Bride cocktail is a super simple, perfectly peachy drink.  However, I’m not a big fan of the peach schnapps (too sweet) that most recipes include, so I replace it with Deep Eddy peach-flavored vodka.  Add the splash of good quality grenadine, and your cocktail is complete.

This Ulla Johnson dress was on my wedding wish list for a bit.  Sadly, weddings are already expensive and destination weddings, more expensive.  So a $700 dress just wasn’t in the cards; it’s beautiful though.

I opted to wear a white dress that I already owned, but if I hadn’t, this Seen Worn Kept Anglaise Eyelet dress and under-$75 Farrow Smocked Dress were both on my list.  Plus-size?  This Shein dress with lace accents is really beautiful.
