I recently had the pleasure of marrying my college sweetheart 12 years after we first met.  We celebrated our wedding in Palm Beach, FL with all of our wonderful friends and family.  Being the Buyer for a great store like Rapunzel’s Closet and comes in handy on a daily basis – but it was being a shopper before my wedding weekend that was really a lot of fun! had everything I needed for my big weekend – except the dress of course!!


The Ella Moss Camille Dress was perfect for running errands the day before the wedding.  It was hot in Florida so the lightweight sleeveless style of the dress was perfect for my last minute hair appointments and shopping trips.  This dress looks cute with ballet flats, flip flops and wedge sandals.  I loved wearing this dress so much that i’m taking it on my Greek honeymoon next month.


One of the first wedding purchases I made was undies! Hanky Panky’s are by far the most comfortable thong underwear and the crystal “I Do” detail was a fun surprise for my husband!  These come in white and blue so if you are missing your “something blue,” undies are a great way to follow the tradition. For the brunch the morning after I wore the Hanky Panky “Mrs.” thong under my cute brunch outfit (also from to celebrate my new title as a Mrs!!  I recently ordered “Bridesmaid” thongs for Rapunzel’s Closet and so keep checking back for those because they are a great add-on gift for your bridesmaids!


 I knew that my feet would only last so long in my beautiful Jimmy Choo 4 1/2″ heels so I bought Havaianas Top Flip Flops to dance the night away.  The great thing about Havaianas is that they come in tons of colors.  I bought the India Orange ones to match my wedding colors which were hot pink and orange.  The flash of orange looked so cute under my dress, and I got lots of compliments for my dedication to the theme of my wedding.


 After a lot of indecisiveness over my hair, I finally decided to wear it up in a low loose bun.  My best friend Jodi from camp had loaned me her veil which was beautiful and covered my “something borrowed” requirement. I wore this Juicy Couture Terry Hoodie on my wedding day to my hair appointment.  It kept me warm in all of the cold air conditioning and it was easy to unzip and take off before I put my wedding gown on.  I didn’t want to mess up the hours of handiwork that my stylist had spent working on my hair.  The hoodie also served one other purpose that I had never thought about before the wedding – it protected my back and arms from the layers of hairspray that my stylist doused my head with.


 In warm weather I never go anywhere without at least one pair of Juicy Couture Terry Public Shorts.  They are comfortable and easy to pack and go with all of my cute tanks and of course with my Juicy Couture Terry Hoodies.  These shorts were the perfect addition to my wedding day attire.


My wedding day was unforgettable but the fun purchases I made at Rapunzel’s Closet and will continue to remind me about all of the fun I had preparing for my big day.  Our trip to Greece is right around the corner and I’m already on the prowl for easy dresses and cute bathing suit cover-ups to make the trip with me.  Stay tuned to read about what I find!
