A Super Stylish Sex And The City Style Wedding In San Francisco

The minute I saw Ashley and Greg’s super stylish Sex and the City style wedding in San Francisco, I just knew I had to feature it on Style & the Bride. I know the TV series Style & the City featured many years ago, but I still miss it. Who else feels the same? Do you remember the vintage suit the character Carrie Bradshaw wore when she married ‘Mr Big’ in New York. Although she nearly wore a Vivienne Westwood number, this suit was definitely more her. Chic, stylish, and very Carrie.
Ashley’s Delphine Manivet dress definitely reminded me of Carrie’s outfit and couldn’t have been more perfect for her Sex and the City style wedding.
Ashley and Greg met through mutual friends and dated for around two years before getting engaged. ‘He flew to Philadelphia to see me while I was there visiting family,’ says Ashley. ‘He proposed on the floor in my mum’s bedroom, with everyone sitting on the floor!’
When it came to her dress for her Sex and the City style wedding, Ashley had seen a photograph of it a year and a half before her big day and couldn’t get it out of her mind. Her shoes were by Nicholas Kirkwood and featured pearl detailing on the heel. ‘I was going for a look that was very free, yet elegant,’ explains Ashley. ‘I didn’t want anything that felt too “bridal.”I wore very minimal jewellery, my mum got me a locket that I wore. For my something borrowed, I wore my mother in law’s tennis bracelet.
As the couple’s Sex and the City style wedding was small, Ashley was happy for her friends to wear whatever they felt comfortable in. Her only rules were no denim and no white.
Ashley and Greg didn’t want their Sex and the City style wedding to be too structured. ‘I wanted to do it at City Hall so I could feel connected with San Francisco,’ says Ashley. After we went out for drinks at one of our favourite bars in our neighbourhood and then to dinner at a Mexican restaurant.’
According to Ashley, one of the highlights of her big day was City Hall. ‘You don’t realise how beautiful it is until you see the photographs.’
