17 Times Long Sleeves Were the Sexiest | The Newport Bride

17 Times Long Sleeves Were the Sexiest

It’s finally winter! While for much of New England it does not exactly feel like winter, the cooler weather is coming. Sexy gowns aren’t all strapless and slinky, these long-sleeved gowns are the sexiest and they’ll still keep you warm on your walk down the aisle. Are you ready to go long?

A Vineyard Vines Wedding

It’s no secret that we love everything pink and preppy, and the Vineyard Vines whale is no exception. What’s not to love about a brand that’s all about fun in the sun? As it gets colder here we’re dreaming of warm weather weddings, with sun and waves and of course, our favorite summer wardrobe staples. You know, like Vineyard Vines.

If you’re dreaming on a Vineyard Vines  themed wedding, check out their wedding site and maybe even create a customize tie and cummerbund set for your big day. Complete with a personalized embroidery/text section on the backside of the tie, these set are the perfect groom and groomsmen gifts. A one of a kind piece they will actually wear again.

If we were planning a Vineyard Vines themed wedding it might look something like this…

The cake would be pink and navy with whales of course.

The groom would wear this smashing “Crabby” tie.

There would be plates and plates of these whale cookies.

A Christmas Tree Farm Wedding: Inspired by KJP + Sarah KJP

Over the weekend fashion icons and the founders of the brand KJP, Kiel James Patrick (@KJP) and Sarah Vickers (@SarahKJP) said their “I Do”s at Henry’s Christmas Tree Farm in Hope Rhode Island. Their picture perfect lives were perfectly summed up in their venue choice. Getting married at a Christmas tree farm seems perfect for this iconic American made brand. In everything this sweet couple and their company highlight the importance of family and friends, the beauty of New England, and the importance of supporting local American brands. In an Instagram post yesterday, Kiel said this of their wedding day “We hopped into our Jeep Wagoneer and drove back home to be with family and friends for apple pie, cake, moms gingerbread cookies, Christmas music, champagne and eggnog. It was the most perfect day and we both agreed that all the little things we already had was all we ever needed to live happily ever after.” Does it get any more beautiful and honest than that? In this crazy world we can’t help but love the people who have the opportunity for anything, but choose the simple family-centered life.

While their official wedding pictures haven’t been released, we’ve dreamed up a few ideas of what Sarah and Kiel’s wedding might have looked like. Tell us in the comments what you think. How would you do a wedding a a Christmas tree farm? K

If we were planning a wedding at a Christmas tree farm (P.S. what a great idea!) we would probably take some pictures like these.

The escort cards would be rustic and playful.

The dessert station would have these lovely treats.

The bouquets and boutonnieres would be inspired by the green of the venue.
