An ombre wedding gown? Totally wild, right?

Actually, the colorful gown seems right at home on the beaches of Maui, which is where this bridal shoot by KT Merry took place. The saturated hues are just perfect for fall. The handmade gown is by Wings Hawaii located in gorgeous Haiku.

how to style a short wedding gown

how to style a short wedding gown

It’s more difficult than one would imagine.

Short wedding gowns, or chic little white dresses that work just as well as wedding gowns, are so popular because they’re easy, fun and totally flattering. (Here are a few of my favorites!) But with less gown, there isn’t necessarily less to style.

A shorter hemline on your wedding gown means that your shoes will be in full view, therefore, it’s essential to pick a cute pump that flatters your look and elongates your legs. High heels, and peep toes in particular, do just that.

Flipping through Martha Stewart Wedding’s fall fashion issue was probably one of my favorite editorial experiences thus far. The entire book was filled with style inspiration, from the Q&A with bridal’s most iconic fashion designers (missing from that list, I thought, were Claire Pettibone, Birnbaum & Bullock and Jenny Packham,) invitation suites inspired by spools of thread, and pages upon pages of amazing advertisements.

diy destination wedding in maui

How many of your favorite wedding-related words are in that title: diy, destination…Maui! I mean, does it get any better?

For Rosanna and Tony, the answer is “No.”

Last month, the LA couple traveled to Maui to tie the knot, diy style. They infused their beach wedding with fun and color, using red, orange, blue and purple ribbon throughout the ceremony and reception. Rosanna even styled her Lena Medoyeff wedding gown with a bright orange sash. So pretty!

weekend engagement: kennywood park, pittsburg

Hello readers! Remember me? We’ve taken a bit of a break from our Weekend Engagement sessions but rest assured, we haven’t abandoned the concept. In fact, this weekend we’ve got a double dose of stylish e-sesh that starts right now.

Nicolle and Martin were recently married at Heinz Chapel on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh but before they said “I do,” they spent the day with The Brand Studio at Kennywood Park, a old school amusement park and national landmark just outside of Pittsburgh.
