Thanks for visiting my Friday Fancies link-up with AV at Long Distance Loving! Today's look is my dream New Year's Eve wedding outfit. I love this sparkly sequin gown from Rent the Runway and think there is nothing more perfect than something covered in glitter for New Years. I personally am a firm believer that you can never wear too many sequins or shiny things when it's New Years Eve & I think mixing a sequin black clutch with this gown would be so perfect for a wedding ringing in the New Year!

It is so crazy to think of all that has happened this past year. Last January my boyfriend and I were looking for homes to rent so that we could take the next step and move in together. I was working part-time at the bridal shop and had only worked at one wedding so far the previously year. We had just one pet, my dog, Winnie. The year flew by and in 2012 Layla and I helped marry 24 couples. It was an insanely busy and exciting year. Some months we had a wedding every single weekend. In September... Layla found out her husband was moving to New York and I had a big decision to make. I can still remember the first time I consulted with my dad and I can still remember him telling me there is no way I can run a company. I got off the phone upset and defeated and decided that I would do it anyway. Lo and behold he called me a few hours later to apologize and said that he had full confidence that I could do some great things and he would support me in my endeavors. In October it became official and I got underway trying to change some things with the brand and make it my own. Now as the year ends I find myself getting excited and anxious for all the weddings next year! It has been so fun getting to know the couples and working with them to help make their vision a reality. A lot of things have changed in my life, but a lot of things have also stayed the same. I still work at a bridal shop part-time selling bridal gowns. But now I have lots more to talk to them about. I still spend hours and hours blogging and on Pinterest finding wedding inspiration. But now I have weddings that I can put my ideas to use for. I still go to antique stores weekly to look for treasures. But now I have a reason to buy all those vintage dessert stands. I still have my dog Winnie. But now we also have a kitten (tiger/monster/crazed animal) named Tigger. Lots of changes and so much that I am thankful for! I appreciate everyone that takes the time to read my blog and follow my company as we grow! I am so excited to see where 2013 takes this company... and be expecting lots of changes!!! (hint: I have officially hired someone to do the branding for me so there will be no more random logo changes in the middle of the night & everything will have a cohesive and unified look that I am confident you all will love!)

Anyway... now to the Friday Fancies gorgeous bridal outfit inspiration for a New Years wedding!!!
