Brides


A favorite color of mine is and has always been blush – the color of ballet slippers. The romantic, feminine and fabulous shade graced Spring runways and became the hottest wedding color for 2014 and 2015 spring weddings.

Blush dresses offer a gorgeous alternative to ivory or white. A sweet take on pastels and perfect for any bride wanting color on her wedding day, if you love the trend, below are some amazing dresses that embrace all shades and styles!

FLOWERS THAT HANG FROM THE CEILING

How can a ceiling covered in flowers not wow you? Crystal chandeliers complete the glamorous effect of this lush indoor inverted garden. Use the same concept over a dance floor, head table or ceremony site.

THE PERFECT FLORAL ARCH

The arch is a focal point of any ceremony, so make it something to stare at. And there’s nothing quite like a flower-covered trellis to do just that. Hanging crystals and cascading vines create a pretty backdrop for photos. Play with color and floral varieties to make it work for any season or setting.

ALL WHITE EVERYTHING

There’s something so timeless about a clean and crisp all-white reception. Use height, texture and lighting in your centerpieces to create depth. This will make your flowers stand out — even against a monochromatic background

OBSESSION WITH OMBRE

The ombre trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. It’s made its mark on almost every wedding element, from invitations to cakes and even dresses. This look works best on long tables, so you can really see the slight variation between each shade. You can stick to one flower type, like roses or hydrangeas, to really make the colors pop, but feel free to do whatever types of flowers you love!

FLORAL WALLS

Flower-covered walls are the next big thing in wedding flower decor. And why not? This idea pulls double-duty as both a ceremony and photo booth backdrop. It’s also a great way to bring the outdoors in if you’re saying “I do” in a ballroom setting.

HAPPY PLANNING!

. . . another week and so far, my thoughts are filled with romance, soft pastel colors, bundles of tulle, billowy clouds and late-summer rain. Evenings spent with family and friends while we say our bittersweet farewells to the last days of summer . . .

Wishing you an enchanting week, overflowing with beautiful things, before inspirations of fall abound.

There is nothing quite as beautiful or unique, as a perfectly gorgeous wedding dress. Lately, more care has been put into the intricate details on the backside of bridal gowns. Your guests will mostly be admiring you from the back as you walk down the isle, recite your vows, have your first dance, and toss your bouquet.

So, give them something to talk about! Whether you want to show it all off with a sexy low back or want to glow with an ethereal look and soft illusion back, there is a gown out there for you! And trust me, these gowns are as gorgeous in the front as they are in the back.

On a personal note, I couldn’t not include my dream dress (below), so simple and sophisticated, yet sexy and dreamlike. This dress makes me swoon. I think Im in love 😉

The way something as simple as layered scalloped lace can create such a stunning effect.

Or the way the back of this dress is just two simple bows

Its here again, my favorite show, the Elie Saab couture show, which never fails to enchant. A show filled with floating, floor-sweeping gowns of chiffon and organza, strewn in sparkling beads and delicate pearls.   It is, as always, a MAGICAL fairytale . . .  Among the fifty outfits that chinked and tinkled their way down the chandelier lined catwalk, there wasn’t one day look. Ultimately, many of these dresses are destined to be ordered in white: the painstaking attention to back details and long trains suggested that weddings are where Saab does most of his business.

Back stage, models puckered their pillowy pink lips against his cheeks in congratulation while somehow simultaneously posing and looking gorgeous for the photographers’ lenses. Everyone looked very happy, like princesses straight out of a fashion fairytale.
