Today’s Dress: Modern Trousseau (Spring 2012)

5 May

Today’s Dress is actually two dresses from the Modern Trousseau Spring collection. The gown and the short dress have the same unique lace that I love. I love how the satin under skirt peeks out on the long gown and I love the 3/4 sleeve boat neck overlay of lace on the short dress. What a perfect pair these would make for a ceremony and reception set!

The Look: Tropical Destination Glam

4 May

To go along with today’s destination inspiration board, here is a little fashion/style inspiration. The bride to be wanted a flowy white gown and loved this bouquet of mixed pinks. Borrowing the pale pink shades from the bouquet would be perfect for nails and makeup. I love a chunky pair of bold turquoise earrings to add a pop of color to the look. If it’s a beach ceremony, a pair of turquoise jeweled sandals would be fab and then maybe a pair of heels for dancing the night away on resort the pool deck (at least until you just give up and go barefoot).

Inspiration: Tropical Destination Glam

4 May

I am a big fan of today’s board, mostly because it’s for a real bride. This friend of mine knew what she wanted, but just needed a little help putting it into a cohesive board. She is having a destination in Puerto Rico with the ceremony on the beach and reception on the pool deck of the resort. She loves turquoise and pink and had an image in her head of a pink orchid against a turquoise ocean. She wanted it to be modern with a little bit of glam. She provided some great centerpiece pics – I love the blue plexi glass with the coral and candles! I thought that square chargers and bold graphic print napkins were a great way to keep the table settings modern. And how cute is the message in a bottle seating card idea? I know this wedding is going to be beautiful and I can’t wait to see pics!

Today’s Dress: Silk Ruffle Milly Gown at Nordstrom

3 May

How precious is this Milly silk ruffle trim gown at Nordstrom? I love the delicate feminine ruffle at the neckline. The waterfall of petite ruffles in the back is the money shot and the ruffles are lined with ribbon that matches the ribbon at the waistline. Pretty, just so pretty!

Tuesday Shoesday: Sunny Yellow Bows

3 May

I don’t know who they are by, but I love how the yellow bows add a pop of color and whimsy to otherwise pretty traditional looking wedding shoes. These are happy shoes!

If you like these shoes, here is a comparable set of yellow bow shoes clips on Etsy you could add to any simple pair or white wedding shoes – or any shoe for that matter!

Today’s Dress: Collette Dinnigan (Summer 2011)

2 May

I came across this dress on Polka Dot Bride where the whole Collette Dinnigan summer collection is featured and it really took my breath away. The bead work and netting on the bodice of this dress by the Australian designer is sheer perfection and balances perfectly with the simple A-Line skirt. This dress is MAGNIFICENT!

Today’s Dress: Badgley Mischka (Spring 2012)

26 Apr

Holy ball gown Badgely Mischka! This wedding gown is so regal. The sash detail across the front reminds me of those sashes British Royalty wear when they get all dresses up. This dress is totally fit for a princess. Gorgeous!
