So here’s a bit about me and my dark wedding secret that goes far beyond a Pinterest board. At times I consider myself to be “married to fashion”, so much so that when asked about my ideal W-Day I can never offer much information past the extremely specific fantasy of the dresses i’ll be wearing (i’m predicting 4 wardrobe changes). In fact, I really hope my future hubs is a bit more practical than I or we will be eloping at the nearest site with yours truly sporting a misplaced $20,000 gown… and one of a kind shoes, but we’ll chat shoes a different day. So my question is, if the dress comes before the dream how do you know the style of wedding that will best portray your dress?

For those who pair their something new with something blue
Brides continue to stray from white. Though usually opting for blush tones, i’ve decided it’s time to step it up a notch. This Badgley Mischka is a piece of strapless shimmering perfection with hints of blue, handpicked for a lawn style wedding full of natural garden florals and feminine details. Notice the simple structure of dress with a perfectly draped sheer overlay and almost leaf like detailing that will be perfectly complemented by the soft beauty of florals, lush greenery and vintage romance.
The vintage glam of a Hollywood Social
The classic chignon, the sudden black liquid liner and the burgundy lip. Nothing speaks to the ritz of your wedding better than classic old world glam. Think of mansion courtyards where guests gossip “oh, this old thing” refers to a vintage Dior and blinding emerald pendant. The classic, yet very on trend 3quarter length lace sleeve is essential next to such ornate styling of different hues of grey metallics, glass and silver. Less in quantity, more in detail when it comes to decor.
A Twist to Nautical
Lately I feel as if Nautical themed weddings have gotten stuck in the prepster box, full of monograms and stripes. Let’s keep Nautical on the shoreline, but add a bit of 40s romance with delicate lace scalloping, champagne fabric and a simple blow out held with an encrusted headband. You will not find a more perfect fit as you walk down an aisle lined with pilings sprinkled with bits of sea blue and emerald knotted glass to reflect in soft sunlight. This is natural elegance and Nautical at it’s best. Bon Voyage, my dear!
