Wedding Inspiration


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.

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

Ashley and Matt hosted about 200 guests at their destination wedding held in Cabo at the Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort. It provided the most pristine spot for the breathtaking nuptials. Ashley and Matt went with all-white decor and a few silver and gray accents to add a luxe touch to the theme. The couple asked guests to dress in all white (This is very uncommon, and I usually disagree with the idea, but surprisingly, it turned out beautiful without taking anything away from the bride’s big moment) Don’t let the neutral tones fool you, their wedding video shows you just how fun a wedding with a poolside affair complete with loud music and good friends can be… This is, a destination wedding done right. . . Congrats.

When buying your honeymoon and bridal lingerie, don’t forget to plan for the most important night of all — the wedding night. When the wedding dress comes off, your lingerie should tempt the groom and scream sexy, beautiful, chic and angelic all at once. Traditionally, lingerie on the night of the wedding is white and not black, even though black is usually seen as much sexier. A long-standing tradition, white lingerie matches the day’s ambiance of purity and beauty, it is simply the cherry placed on top of your hopefully flawless day. But, don’t feel as though you have to keep this tradition, if you want ro wear pink, black, or yellow… do whatever your heart desires. But below are a few suggestions I thought up.

A couple of ideas:

1) Integrate in a sexy garter, they are beautiful and it’s the one night that wearing it actually makes sense.

2) Veil anyone? Yes, a veil. As pictured below, it gives an  angelic touch to the look and will be a great mental picture for your man forever on out… Due to the contents, I didn’t picture it below, but I’ve seen many boudoir shoots where the bride took photos nude with nothing but the veil incorporated into the shots. Let me say, they were beautifully done, very sexy and not tacky at all. Veils can be extremely sexy and beautiful… I mean, when else are you going to be able to wrap yourself in tulle and feel like a princess. Yes I said it, princess… a sexy princess. lol. ok  moving on …

3) Lingerie doesn’t need to be pricy, in fact, have it gifted to you at your shower. Ask for specific items for your shower. Go and find things that you want, try them on, make good notes (store, size, style, etc) that way, there will be no size guessing for your guests. Be clear and concise with your guests and you won’t end up with tacky lingerie for your shower and instead some beautiful pieces that fit well and will be used.  This means you must take the time to try things on to find what you like and what looks good. And on that note, happy shopping!
