Anthropologie Launches BHLDN and We All Jump for Joy!

Have you all heard the news? I feel like it’s the best Valentine’s Day present ever (next to whatever my husband thinks up for me, obviously) – Urban Outfitters, Inc., the mad geniuses behind Anthropologie and Urban, just today opened up their online wedding shop, BHLDN, and it is heavenly.

And, truly, I don’t think heavenly is an overstatement. These dresses are ridiculous! They all have the signature Anthroplogie feel – creative and inspired – while still catering to all sorts of body types and styles; there are dramatic ballroom dresses, a whole bunch of short kicky numbers, and lots of romantic sheaths. Plus, they’re all priced between $1000 – 4000.

As if their wedding dresses weren’t enough, they also have an entire line of bridesmaid dresses. And there’s a great range of styles – everything from long, bohemian numbers to shorter, traditional ones that, of course, feature a twist.

And how much do you love these shoes? I cannot tell you how long I looked for gold, glittery shoes for my wedding without avail and then – voila! – here they are. Let’s just say I have my list started for Christmas early this year…

How fun would this veil be for a courthouse wedding? It also works as a traditional blusher.

They’ve done such a great job of curating a range of styles – you have everything from this over-the-top headpiece to a much more subtle crystal hairpin.

Check out all of the goodies and tell me, what’s your favorite piece?
