Wedding Wednesday: Peachy Pride and Prejudice Inspiration

To celebrate the 200th birthday of my favorite novel, “Pride and Prejudice,” I wanted to put together a pretty little inspiration board inspired by the Regency Era and in the vein of an English countryside wedding. I happened up this gorgeous gown by Papilio and it has the perfect amount of Regency Era inspiration without being mistaken for a costume.

I hope you have been enjoying the posts so far this week. Feel free to share your favorite novel. You just might find and inspiration board on it in the coming weeks.
