Danielle is STUNNING!!!

Those are very pretty dresses

Danielle is so stunning, I could stare at her for days
Danielle looks amazing! I especially love that first dress. Can't tell you how glad I am that Christian Siriano designs such beautiful dresses for plus size women... I only wish I had occasion to wear one of his looks.

Sloan also looks fantastic, though I don't love the cape.
I took a look at his website once just to get a sense of the cost and it's just so nice that his sizing runs from 0-28. I can't really afford to spend $5000 on a dress but it's nice to have the option.
they both look gorgeous, wow!

Danielle's first dress is stunning! I found out it is by a British Nigerian designer,- Gbemi Okunola her designs are gorgeous.
i’m so envious of the flesh toned meshing, alonuko needs more props and everyone else needs to fall in line!
I am turning 30 this year and I am realizing I am no where near getting married lol. I never had inclination of wanting to get married as a teen but now as an adult I want that life because I never had a healthy relationship with a man lol. I live with my sister and her dog so I decided I might just end up like Frasier and her dog is my Eddie 🤣🤣🤣
The skirts are a little poofy for my taste but they're nice dresses.
I dont mean to street harass Danielle but i wish there was one of her smiling 😭 her smile is radiant
I agree--you're getting married, smile! I want her husband to smile too lol.
My boyfriend never smiles for photos and it’s so frustrating because I like to smile and it always looks like he is irritated to be there with me. I told him if we ever get married he better give me at least one smiling photo!
She is ~sMiLinG~ in her profile photo and Twitter banner. Let the woman look like how she wants to look like geez.

Also... smiling =\= happy
I'm sure they got photos of them smiling! but that was also my first thought lol

I love that the designer matched the tulle/shaw to Danielle's skin tone, stunning and unique
WHOA I am obsessed with Sloane's look.

Sloane is stunning anyway, but her whole look is amazing.
I LOVE that first dress Danielle posted, with the delicate florals. I don't quite love the second dress with the sort of bustier as a bodice because it makes her look like she has a short torso and there's not enough space between the chest and the start of the skirt, which makes her boobs look less flattering even though they have support

Sloane's dress is lovely, and with the cape she really is a queen
Gorgeous
Danielle's man is fine
I got engaged over the holidays, and am already feeling so overwhelmed with my wedding planning. We haven't been able to go anywhere or do anything because of the omicron surge, but family members are already asking me so many questions like where our venue is and our date...like, its been 2 weeks?! anyway, if anyone has any recommendations for good wedding blogs/planning help, please let me know! It's going to be very DIY, which i am thrilled about, so i'd love to see tips from other successful DIY events
Congrats! Sorry you're getting pressured already. We didn't pick a date until 8 months into our engagement lol. Go your own pace ❤

My biggest recommendation is, if you have the money, hire a day of planner and if you don't, maybe get a trusted family member or friend to act as one.

I'm an event planner and that's what I would do, even if I DIY'd everything else. Simply because I don't want to be the one worrying if the band showed up or if people got tipped. If you don't have a lot of vendors and your venue has a good event coordinator, this tip is moot.

Also, feel free to ask me any questions. I do nonprofit and corporate events so it's not a 1:1 similarity, but the bones of event planning are the same.
This is such good advice, thanks! I have a friend who works in corporate event planning as well, and I am def going to take her out to a very nice dinner and ask for advice at the very least. Is it rude to ask that of someone who would be a guest?

Congratulations! Sorry that you are feeling overwhelmed. :(
The Knot is a great resource. They have an app to help with planning. They have a database of local venues by zip code too.

I’ve never gotten married myself but I’ve helped with planning as a bridesmaid. My biggest advice would be not to rush things unnecessarily, long engagements are fine and they give you time to save money. The wedding industry is lowkey a racket and things can be insanely expensive.

congrats!!

i'm in the same boat and it's so annoying. i got engaged in november and immediately people asked me when we're getting married. calm tf down. i haven't planned any wedding party yet as i'm too busy trying to figure out how to move (we're from different countries). and even when we marry, the annoying questions don't stop. it'll just change into the baby question then.

I let my mom plan most of my wedding. She likes that kind of shit, and I don’t care. It helped so much with stress. (Except she did have a little meltdown at the rehearsal dinner when we found out the flowers came in the wrong color.)

In retrospect so much bad was going on. My fiancé was deployed until shortly before the wedding. We also got married at a military chapel and September 11th happened 3 months before the wedding, shutting down access to the military base. 3 people in the wedding party refused to fly, one only told us a week before (got her dress resized for sister in law). All sorts of shit in the days before. Photographer went missing after the wedding and we never got our official pictures. But in the end it was a pretty wedding and we had a great time at the reception, so the rest is just memories.
