Coral Wedding Inspiration

Coral Wedding Inspiration via DelphineI wonder if it’s possible to look at this inspiration palette and not fall in love with coral? It’s nothing short of perfect. We’re totally crushing on coral. The thing we love most about it is that it looks pretty in any shade. And a whole mix of corals together? It’s one of our favorite looks.

Coral matches well with gold, silver, neutrals and even other colors (hello, mint!). It is said that origins of the word are traced back to mean “fate” and “destiny.” So, what better color to help create your romantic, joyful day destined to be perfect?

Search for the Perfect Little White Dress

5 little white dresses for fallI’ve been invited to a wedding industry party with a “wear something white” dress code. Thus, my search for the perfect little WHITE dress. I need something that works for fall, must be comfortable, not too short, preferably with shoulders covered (I get chilly). And it has to be fashionable enough for the Big Apple. So far I’ve rounded up five little white dresses:

1. White dress with black embroidered bodice from Anthropologie  2. White belted tank dress from J. Crew   3. White long sleeve lace dress from Banana Republic  4. White and taupe striped long sleeve shift dress from H&M   5. White cap sleeve lace cocktail dress from H&M.

romantic gowns by Monique Lhuillier

These lovely dresses are all from Monique Lhuillier‘s Spring 2011 collection. Wouldn’t they be perfect for a romantic garden wedding? I just love the muted color palette. Ladies, don’t be afraid of a little print. Too much and it becomes sort of matchy matchy tea cozy feeling, but a bit here and there is lovely. Lhuillier even showed a wedding gown with a floral print like the short bm dress above. You can see the gowns that Lhuillier sent down the catwalk at fashion week here.

behind the scenes: claire pettibone runway show

photo from Claire Pettibone blog

I had the pleasure of meeting Claire Pettibone last month at the Martha Stewart Weddings 15th Anniversary Party. We chatted a bit about the craziness of putting together a new collection, and the joy of watching a line go “live.” For me, a new collection goes live with little to no fanfare (i.e. our new personal stationery collection went up on our website over the weekend … woot). Part of me wishes for that exciting moment that Claire and her fellow fashion designers get when the first model makes her way down the runway.

You can read more about the behind-the-scenes craziness that is a bridal market week runway show on Claire Pettibone’s blog.

And if you’re a bride in the LA area you are in luck! Claire Pettibone is having a sample sale at their Beverly Hills flagship store:

blog we love: once wed

I’ve always been a fan of the blog Once Wed, where  you can buy once worn wedding gowns (really really nice ones). They recently unveiled their new look & feel and HELLO, Gorgeous! I love the new look. Made me explore the site in more depth, and I discovered the lovely Real Weddings section, with photos of some of the most beautiful, heartfelt wedding photos I’ve ever seen, including this one below:

weddings: in love with accessories

gown by va lena valentina

 

Just gorgeous! I’m really liking this trend of feather-y head gear for bridal couture, instead of super sparkly tiara (which sometimes seems a little Hello, Kitty to me).

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.
