The veiled truth – how to choose the perfect wedding veil

11 Feb

Choosing the right veil for your wedding can be tricky. The days of only having to choose between a handful of veil-lengths, based on the venue you choose, are long gone.

Now, brides are choosing their wedding veil based on their personality and dress style. Short dresses just scream for short veils or blushers. Long, traditional-style dresses look great with just about any style. Details such as pops of color, gorgeous mantilla lace details and embellishments are all sweet additions.

David’s Bridal has a great resource on veils – if you’re not sure of the right kind for your dress-style, or just want to learn a little before you decide, they offer a pretty solid description of styles and a riduculous selection of styles.

And, OMG, I had NO idea that they have combs and hairflowers – to wear alone or accent your veil (or, as many brides do, swap with the veil after heading down the aisle).

My favorite piece? A sweet Russian netting birdcage veil with a feather-flower embellishment (H7546). So lovely!

Crisp pleats on the dress

7 Feb

Classic touches on a dress can take that fabulous gown of your dreams into a stylish, classic piece that (gasp), even your future daughter may want to wear. The pleats on this gown are AMAZING.

We’d love it see it without a speck of the black stones or rhinestones. This is a case where simplicity would certainly be an improvement.

But the pleats are incredible – crisp, clean, classy.

Dress by Bellinabride on Etsy.

Something blue – what about glittery shoes?

9 Dec

I love the idea of turning your “something blue” into something visual that all your guests can see, and your photographer can capture forever.

These low-heel (1″ heel) blue glitter shoes do just that. And that little ankle strap adds some sweet visual interest!

They’re in low supply – so snap them up fast!

Find them here.

On the cheap: bridal haircomb

8 Dec

You don’t need to spend a small fortune to make an impact on your wedding day. Case in point: Check out this sweet haircomb.

It’s reminiscent of something from Tiger Lily, but costs about the same as lunch at your local deli (i.e. under $10). Love it!

Find it at Forever 21.

20 Nov

We love all the lovely wedding dress embellishments that are in style right now – brooches, sashes, floral details and pops of color make us swoon and wish for a second wedding!

Vintage-Style Wedding

How could you not love these photos? Kate & Doug tied the knot in September, 2009. These photos could easily be 80 years old (but Doug’s shoes tastefully give it away!). Love Kate’s look, love the photography!
