Fashion Friday: 3 Bridesmaid Trends
Posted by Kate. Filed under Bridesmaids

Yee-haw, it’s Friday!  Perhaps you’re heading out this weekend to try on dresses or scope out something pretty for your maids. If so, be sure to peek at the 2013 runway collections and our slew of fashion reports to get prepared.  In the meantime, I thought you’d be interested in peeking at three of the hottest trends for maids this season: pattern, lace, and very bright brights!

no. 1 Floral Patterns by Amsale

no. 2 Lace Frocks by Monique Lhuillier

no. 3 Bright Brights by Watters

Are you going classic or trendy with your attire?  Or classic with trend elements?  We’d love to hear!

Modern Carnival Wedding at Bear Flag Farm
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Naturally, we wanted to close out the year with a bang, and what could be more celebratory than a carnival-themed wedding?!  Chalinee and Craig are two vibrant, fun-loving Californians who were introduced thru mutual friends over a sushi dinner.  They dated for five years before Craig proposed, and their wedding vision included great food, a colorful and modern palette, and a few non-traditional elements that made the day especially unique and unforgettable. Craig’s love of the outdoors, paired with the couple’s determination to have a great meal, led them to Bear Flag Farm, where they could indulge in a breathtaking landscape, farm-to-table menu, and even a ferris wheel!  Enjoy these stunning photos by Anna Kuperberg!

When it came to the gown, Chalinee was all about texture.  Watters’ Adelaide gown couldn’t have fit the role more beautifully!  Each maid chose her own knee-length ivory frock, paired with a colorful shoe.  The Bear Flag Farm team whipped up some gorgeous bouquets with coral roses, ivory blooms and succulents, lending a bright and modern look to the day.  

The couple married on the farm’s cozy sunken lawn. They incorporated a Thai water ceremony  to honor Chalinee’s heritage.  Then, under a dramatic floral archway, they sealed their vows with kiss!  

One heck of a reception followed, including more of those vibrant florals,  a unique bento box meal, a silhouette portrait artist, and in lieu of a first dance, a first ride on the ferris wheel.  See the rest after the jump!

Day Two: NYC Bridal Market Top Ten {Part Two}
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

{Continued from Part One}

no. 6 A Love Letter to New York

It was crisp, clean lines and ‘pure, archetypal shapes’ at Amsale’s presentation of her American Metropolitan-inspired collection.  Dress design, ‘distilled to its essence’ couldn’t be more exquisite, agreed?1

no. 7  Print Obsession

I’m totally, utterly, and completely in love with these silk chiffon print dresses by Amsale… They are feminine and floaty all the while perfectly modern and chic.  I can’t get enough!

no. 8 Crystallized Beauty

If you’ve never gotten up close and personal with a Rivini gown, I’d run (not walk) to the nearest retailer that offers this line.  These are the kind of dresses that move like water and glisten like stars… For Fall 2013, designer Rita Vinieres worked with translucent layers and crystal embellishments to design a collection that ‘…feels like a snowflakes on ice… fragile and unique…’  The fronts (and the backs) of these dresses are equally incredible.

no. 9 Siren Silhouettes

Good golly these Kenneth Pool gowns are gorgeous.  Designer, Amsale Aberra, kicked up the thermostat a few notches with silhouettes inspired by passion, drama, and seductive glamour.  It was a delightful contrast to the tailored look of her namesake collection, something for every bride!

no. 10 Platinum Perfection

Day two wasn’t complete without a stop at Watters!  Since just about everything in my closet is grey (sort of kidding), I couldn’t help but fall head over heels for this platinum mermaid fit gown and ‘gilded’ gemstone veil.

Fashion Friday: Gorgeous and Affordable
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress, Wedding Inspiration

Goooood Friday morning!  I’m in New York, about to see a flurry of runway shows; I can’t wait to show you the new season of bridal gowns!  Stay tuned all this weekend for daily updates here on the blog and live updates here and here.  While I’m off doing that, I thought I’d leave you with a pretty inspiration board that I made for the gals over at Weddingbee!  The Editor-In-Chief and my dear friend Cathy Schroeckenstein asked me to share some pretty fashion inspiration on the site.  I went to it, choosing three dresses from my fave affordable lines: Watters and Wtoo, and designing a wedding concept based on each gorgeous gown.   Here’s a fresh, peachy palette  to complement the Olivia dress… you’ll have to hop on over there to see the others!
