oh, vera

How does Vera Wang do it? She is always on top of the latest trends (I think SHE is driving the trends). I am simply in awe of this gorgeous “delicately tinted pale nude tissue organza gown with asymmetrically draped bias-tiered origami skirt, back bows and nude grosgrain bow at natural waist.” (description from Elegant Bride Fall 2009 issue, where I first spotted the gown). Stunning! The photo in Elegant Bride magazine is even more amazing looking than this view (you can see the waist detail a bit better in the magazine).

bridesmaid dress fun



One of my coolest clients ever, Tiffani, had a lot of fun with the whole bridesmaids dress issue … she had a “27 Dresses” themed bridal shower. Everyone wore a real live bm dress from their closet (including Tiffani!). Colleen Sherman took photos … you can see them on her blog here.

bridesmaid dress bliss


“Bridesmaids dress” … two of the most dreaded words in every woman’s lexicon. Everyone in the same dress = everyone unhappy (SORRY, D, R, J & D!). A great alternative is something like what Katie’s bms did: pick a great color palette and a fabric type & let the ladies pick a dress they really love. Aren’t these dress colors (and flowers) simply lovely?!?

Being able to wear the dress again is really not the issue … feeling great about the way you look on your best friend’s big day is! Fab photos by Kate Benson. Found on the Southern Weddings super cool blog!

bridal chic: lela rose




Because I am in the wedding (invitation) industry, I have a legitimate excuse for reading all the lovely bridal magazines. I am in love with Lela Rose. The graphic designer in me cannot get over how fantastic her logo is: the repeating lines of the delicate script perfectly echo the look and feel of her bridal gowns. It’s her logo and the texture of her gowns that attracted me in the first place. [btw, visit the site to see the logo better...the screenshot is a little blurry].

I was happy when I visited her website to find that she also designs ready to wear/non-bridal. I see that she has incorporated some of my favorite “trends” into her Spring collection: navy, grey and dull metallics–all together, no less.
