Destination Wedding: Versailles

I have a confession to make: I'm one of those cliche girls who's been thinking about her wedding since childhood. I've known the day (September 27), place (Palace of Versailles), maid of honor (my sister), and cake flavor (vanilla) since I was in elementary school. Don't worry– I'm still too young (19 still qualifies as a kid, right?) to associate weddings with marriage. To me, a wedding is just the epitome of a dream event. So, I was thrilled when the wedding site I see all over Pinterest–– asked me what my dream Parisian wedding would look like.

Though the Palace of Versailles is a bit outside of Paris, I couldn't miss an opportunity to create an inspiration board for my dream wedding; Parisian or otherwise. I channeled two of my style icons– Marie Antoinette, a resident of Versailles prior to the French Revolution and Kim Kardashian, who held one of her wedding celebrations at Versailles– in developing the atmosphere of my dream event. I went with a neutral and elegant color scheme of gold, blush, and navy blue and drew inspiration from the baroque decor in the palace when choosing place settings and jewelry. The final product is what you see above, but you can see more of my inspiration on my Pinterest board dedicated to this project.

Follow Hannah Goldstein's board Parisian Wedding on Pinterest. provided me with everything I needed to plan my "wedding": the dress, stationary, place settings, shoes, jewelry, makeup, everything. It was like a wedding binder but collaborative and much more compact. I had so much fun going through all the dresses they have available; I'm a dress girl through and through and the sheer elegance of these dresses really spoke to me! Don't worry: I've made all my selections available on my Shopcade.
