Priscilla of Boston {Wedding Dress Love}

I am really loving this wedding season. Not only is it bustling and beautiful out for so many authentic weddings, but even the styles I’ve been seeing are wonderful and unique. For wedding gowns, it seems like everything from traditional (hello, Kate Middleton!), modern, ball gown, and sexy chic is “in.” Brides are sticking true to who they are and choosing a dress that compliments their body and personality- who could ask for more?

If you’re looking for any of these wedding silhouettes, I’d definitely recommend checking out Priscilla of Boston. They have a gorgeous selection of designer wedding dresses and are actually affordable! So you don’t have to compromise getting the perfect bridal gown for your perfect day.  Here are a few pretty picks to get your wedding dress search started!

Bridesmaids Movie Giveaway!

Exactly five minutes into watching “Bridesmaids”, I was crying laughing and could barely breathe.  My friend and I were invited to a private screening of “Bridesmaids” at the Lowes Georgetown theatre.  Our exact conversation walking in was “If this movie is cheesy or boring, we’re leaving to get drinks at Clyde’s.”  Not for one second were we bored or cheesed out.  

The plot- without giving anything away- is that Lillian (Maya Rudolph) and Annie (Kristin Wiig) are best friends. After Lillian asks Annie to be her MOH, insanity ensues.  Annie meets the rest of the bridal party for the first time, an assortment of Lillian’s family, her work friends, and her fiance’s addition to the bridal party.  The casting is excellent, and the dynamic among the women is superb.  Although the characters are definitely over-the-top, my friend and I could’t resist pointing out characters and doing the incredibly childish and embarrassing thing of “that’s so you”!  I admit it.  I felt the same going in to “Bridesmaids” as I did going to The New Kids on the Block reunion tour: I didn’t want to love it, but I couldn’t help it (don’t judge – I had free tickets)!  

This movie is definitely an amazing all-girl comedy that celebrates six smart, funny, talented women.  I hope that this will rival the heavily male Hangover that hits theatres around the same time.  Definitely a movie to see with your girlfriends – and don’t be shy about bringing a guy, the crude humor makes it a much easier sell than trying to convince your man to watch Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon at the circus.  I would, however, avoid taking your future mother in law to avoid some cringe inducing awkwardness – the language is a little graphic!  Far from your average love story with a few laughs salted in, this movie will make those stomach muscles work!!
