2015 Bridal Trends: Muted Monochromatic

Powder Blue Monochromatic Weddings

Have I mentioned that I’m slightly obsessed with 2015 trends?  Not only am I seeing a rise in elegant, British-inspired affairs and off-the-shoulder gowns that scream romance (….my need to bring Pride & Prejudice to life is growing immensely), but the popular color palettes of 2014 — which featured pops of bright colors — are being toned down and refined into muted, monochromatic selections.

A Rehearsal Dress Option from Lilly

I have recently become more of a Lilly fan–I can honestly say I wasn’t too keen on their attire beforehand.  The Fall and Spring lines they’ve produced within the past year or two have been more sophisticated and definitely more trend-right (in my opinion) than the Lilly dresses of the past.  Continue reading

Another Take On A First Look Photo

I don’t know about you all but I am a sucker for first look photos.  They are always the most adorable, heartwearming, images!  My only issue with them is that I, personally, wouldn’t want to reveal myself to my groom until the moment I walk down the aisle.  As I was pinning my little heart away, I came across this little gem of a first look photo that I absolutely adore.  Continue reading

A Fairytale Encounter (…Dress Crush!)

For all of you fairytale dreamers out there, this dress is a perfect blend of whimsy, femininity, and sophistication. I can’t decide if my favorite part of this dress is the dreamy, blush pink tulle or the adorable rosette details.

Hump Day Dress Crush

Oh my goodness this dress is AHmazing! The combination of beading, texturous (yeah I made up a word…..) details, and extreme femininity equates to an unforgettable wedding day ensemble.

Project Runway’s Unconventional Wedding Dress

For those of you who don’t know me very well, I am a huge fan of Project Runway.  I have watched every season since the show began and continue to watch it religiously to this day.  This past week, the designers had another unconventional materials challenge (I personally believe they are overdoing the unconventional challenge thing this season…) where they were challenged to create a mini collection in teams of three.  One team decided to create an all-white collection, and naturally one of the designers decided to create a wedding dress for a big wow moment.   Continue reading
