what I wore: dress – bisou bisou (thrifted), pony hair pumps – tuesday morning, earrings – vintage from mae’s, handle-clutch – in retrospect
Last weekend, we attended the post-wedding party of some friends. The soiree was held on the top floor of the Peabody hotel in Little Rock (the view!). I chose a midnight blue velvet Bisou Bisou number and I loved the effect, velvet makes it appropriate for Fall/Winter but the slinky factor makes it a fun party dress.
Here they are! All my wedding pictures. I honestly can’t believe it was four months ago. It was the most incredible experience, made possible by an incredibly wonderful man and many, many precious friends and relatives. Contact me at prettypayblog@gmail if you have questions about vendors. xo

It was quite an eventful weekend. We got a cake sample for our wedding cake and it tasted as good as it looks. .
A new and exciting sponsorship opportunity from BeBop Clothing. I got some goodies in on Friday and couldn’t wait to try them on – more to come!
Karaoke with Ro, my brother Hampton & his brother William. I couldn’t stop myself from singing “Alone” by Heart but regretted it later…
Ro’s mom came up bearing gifts! Including the below four poster bed frame for our room & a dining table. I’m obsessed.
Some sweet friends threw a stock the bar party for us and it was incredibly lovely. Here’s a picture with my mom. (dress – vintage from the grey dog)
Spoils from the stock the bar. Planning this wedding has certainly shown me how many people love us. I feel very special.
I hope you had a lovely weekend!
Lots of cheeky fun!
My bags are packed! I’m ready to go! It’s hard to believe that I’m heading to New Orleans to celebrate my bachelorette, see sweet friends that I haven’t seen in a long time and get excited about my wedding in exactly THREE MONTHS from tomorrow!
The weekend has already started nicely, my dress was delivered today! I haven’t opened the box yet but I’m so excited.
I hope you have a lovely holiday weekend! I’ll leave you with a little picture of the future Bridewells.
