Winter Sundays in my house are for sitting by the crackling fire, sipping peppermint tea, cozied up under a warm blanket. It was under these comfy circumstances that I glued myself to the TV screen and welcomed back my favorite PBS family. That's right, those incorrigible Crawleys are wandering about Downton Abbey again...the fact that this week featured an over the top wedding was just the cherry on top.

(I don't want to give too much away, so if you haven't seen it, I promise not to ruin it. Watch the trailer below for scenes to come in Season 3)

Lady Mary wore the most perfect drop-waist, long-sleeve, whisper-white dress that trailed down the grand stairway into her her father's arms. The elegance and simplicity of this dress alone was a show stopper.

At weddings, I'm continuously a sucker for dresses and flowers, these are the elements that strike a chord (or not) right away. I went to one of my all time favorite ladies, Chelsea Tyler, owner and wedding stylist of Everthine Bridal Boutique for her expert opinion on which dresses will act as the perfect inspiration for your own English-garden-inspired wedding.

She chose two drop dead gorgeous dresses both by Jenny Packham.MichelleGardella_EverthineBridal_DowntonAbbeyInspiredDress_1.jpg
