Pastel lace and Billie Holiday for a couple of classy Denver brides

Michelle and Angela did the coordinating-but-not-matching thing at their wedding in Denver last August. A lace cocktail dress for one, a lace skirt with button-up and a frickin’ slick jacket for the other. Hints of tattoos peek here and there from both. I’m personally loving the dual Marilyn-Monroe pose with both brides fighting against the wind! CYUTE. But Michelle and Angela weren’t the only ones on their style game that day — their officiant rocked a clerical collar and stole with jeans, boots, and a sleeveless shirt perfect for showing off tattoos.

After their weddings, our Offbeat Brides have cozied up to anything from tiny lil firepits to roaring infernos.

Drool over one last spooky wedding of the season with a corpse bride from Pennsylvania!

Okay, yes, we’re moving away from the season of skeletons and spooks, BUT. I owe it to you all to show you this one last spooky glam wedding! Crissa made for an awesome corpse bride when she and TJ got married earlier this fall. She styled her own look, thanks in part to her grandmother’s wedding dress, a skirt of her own, and some choice accessories from Lovechild Boudoir. TJ absolutely kept up with his own Victorian corpse groom costume, and Crissa’s daughter joined in the fun as a sparkly princess.
