It's almost that time again: waking up to a warm morning breeze, putting away anything with long sleeves, and breaking out your favorite sun hat or fedora to go with those perfect vintage, over-sized tortoise shell frames that let you know summer is just around the corner. With stores like BHLDN offering 1960's inspired frocks and decor and Mad Men being just about the hottest show on TV right now, it's no surprise that brides are in full-on 'Summer of Love' mode when it comes to planning the details of their big day.
