Fall In Love: Maid of Honor Style with Weddington Way

Today I'm teaming up with Weddington Way, an online wedding boutique. I was challenged with styling one of their bridesmaid's dresses for a Maid of Honor. Ironically, I will be Maid of Honor in my little sister's wedding in less than a month and I am currently working on styling the bridal party! My sister's wedding is inspired by the Fall, so I decided to use her theme and style what I would like to wear as Maid of Honor at her wedding.

Her wedding is going to be warm and rustic with a casual elegance. It will be held outdoors in the Arizona sun so I knew that heels wouldn't be an option and that sleeves wouldn't be necessary. Her colors are very earthy, but she requested that I wear a shade of 'pumpkin.' The dresses on the Weddington Way site each come in a ton of color options so it was easy to find a style that fit the wedding environment and a color that fit the theme. This dress is the Wtoo 337 in the color 'cinnamon.' It's soft, romantic vibe and rich color are perfect for a Fall outdoor wedding.

Pumpkin Patch Tips


There's a few things that I wish I had or that I wish I had done this year at the pumpkin patch. If you haven't gone yet this year, here's a few tips:

If you're in a colder climate, dress accordingly. Wear a long sleeve, a sweater, and a coat. Think you're wearing enough? Put some more on! It's difficult to enjoy yourself when you're freezing!
My advice: bring an extra coat just in case, and wear a washable coat with a hood {like a North Face} over everything because you will get wet and dirty.

You're going to be trekking through dirt and mud, so don't wear your new shoes! You'll want to wear something washable, and that keeps your feet warm and dry.
My advice: wear a pair of rain boots {like Hunter Boots}

No one likes dirt under their nails {especially with a new mani!} Keep in mind that you are picking your pumpkin from it's home in the dirt off of a prickly vine...
My advice: bring a pair of gardening gloves. You'll keep your hands soft and clean.

I didn't want to put a dirty, muddy pumpkin on the carpet of my car... I wished that there had been a place or a way for me to give my pumpkin a bath before bringing it home.
My advice: pack Wet Wipes for a messy pumpkin and any mess on you.

Pumpkin Patch

I spent Saturday with some of my favorite people out at a pumpkin patch! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I love the festivities associated to it. This pumpkin patch in particular was really great- everyone loads up on a tractor and gets driven out to a giant patch to find their perfect pumpkin. In their barn they have set up a small petting zoo and hay maze for children, outside they have a corn maze for those brave enough to enter...

There were pumpkins everywhere! All shapes and sizes. I would have taken more photos if it hadn't have started raining. Despite the fact that we are all 'Washingtonians' we were all very ill prepared for the rain at the pumpkin patch, but it definitely made for a memorable experience! We will all look back and laugh about how cold and soaking wet we were. I would like to think that we will remember our mistakes for next year, but I bet we will forget something again!

Their best display of pumpkins was their giant Radio Flyer wagon filled with a variety of types and colors.



These are our chosen ones for the year! I couldn't say no to the white pumpkins! I think they are so chic!
