Elope with the Ava

March 31, 2011

For years, our mom has told Sally and I to elope for our future weddings and have a big party with family and friends when we get back.  Our responses: “Psh, are you crazy?”  Weddings are about the vows and everyone watching you say them in the dress of your dreams, right??  And while part of me does still feel like I will want to wear a to-die-for gown (hopefully by Lela Rose – as mentioned by Sally here), another part of me agrees with her – not only is it romantic, intimate, and more private to elope – it…

  1. ,,,your mother and my mother must be sisters,,,(smile),,,precisely what i'm hearing "just elope and have a party later", and we just may,,,the dress is gorgeous, i couldn't pull it off with my petite 5'1" frame but someone tall and slender would look smashing in it!,,,

  2. I L.O.V.E. this dress. When I was picking a dress I fell in love with this Ralph Lauren number( similar to the J.Crew dress) that was in a british magazine. Of course, it was not available, it was from a season before. I was so bummed…

    I adore this dress for an elopement or not. It's stunning…
