You may be wondering how a wedding blog totally dedicated to fashion could go without a single post dedicated to last week’s Bridal Market. Well…wonder no more.
Coming up, we’ve got so many runway presentations and designer Q&A’s, you’re going to be wearing snow boots, drinking hot chocolate and singing Christmas carols before you’ve heard the last of Bridal Market from us. Until then, sip on this: our favorite links from around the web and a recap of all things stylish from right here at home.
Alana and Rich’s minimal, art gallery wedding celebration was filled with a lovely variety of extra carefully curated DIY and handmade touches.Their artfully stark wedding color palette consisted of bright whites, charcoal greys, natural wood, and bright red – and Alana’s strapless, retro wedding dress, Twigs & Honey bird cage veil, and gorgeous red Kate Spade pumps tied it all together.
Andra and Christopher’s Romanian Orthodox ceremony and backyard wedding reception was filled with a beautiful mix of traditional wedding ritual and casual, contemporary elegance. But we couldn’t overlook Andra’s beautiful custom dress – modeled after a favorite vintage evening gown that belonged to her mother.
We’re sticking our stylish noses back in the book today with another creative library wedding, this time photographed by Paige Winn Photo. Laurie and Craig were married at Bond Chapel at the University of Chicago. A reception at the Newberry Library followed. The bride is a librarian, so the setting was a perfect fit.
We were so charmed by all the eclectic little details of Jeff and Andy’s midcentury, museum, Los Angeles wedding, documented by Made U Look Photography – but we were particularly taken aback by her vintage-inspired dress! There’s so much to fawn over – the playful, scalloped hem, the sweetheart neckline, the polka-dot illusion sleeve. This customized Dolly Couture concoction reminds us so much of the fabulous party dresses Elizabeth Taylor made famous in the 1950’s.
