Perhaps you were lucky enough to receive your engagement ring in a coveted little Tiffany’s blue box, but even if you didn’t why not include this gorgeous hue in your colour scheme. Did you know that the Tiffany Blue colour is actually protected as a colour trademark by Tiffany & Co and its Pantone code 1837 derives from the year of Tiffany’s foundation. This does not stop you incorporating this robin egg blue into your wedding. Play it up with other shades of blue like this pretty table setting from Martha Stewart Weddings or simply complement it with ivory for a chic look.

There is nothing cuter than polka dots so why not consider opting for a polka dot themed wedding. It’s retro, fun yet still elegant and puts your own personal touch on the day. Go for full on polka dot glamour by adding it to the invitations, cake and tablecloths and the blue polka dot shoes from bhldn will have your ‘something blue’ covered!

If you’re not keen on adding polka dots in colour, then look to these beautiful dresses and veils with subtle white on white polka dots.  And monochrome is always a chic colour scheme for a wedding and this black and white polka dot cocktail dress would be a gorgeous choice for your bridesmaids.

The fairytale wedding of Blair and her prince finally took place (in the UK!) after months of build-up and of course the only wedding designer that was fit to design the dresses was Vera Wang. With a colour scheme of pink and black, Serena wore a stunning floor length Vera Wang Spring 2011 blush pink gown while the other three bridesmaids wore dresses from the more attainable collection ‘White by Vera Wang’ at David’s Bridal. The stylish dress features beautiful organza roses and is available in other colourways including the pale pink as seen on Gossip Girl. Do you like this look?

After the success of Black Swan last year and fashion designers like Chloe featuring ballet inspired clothing on their catwalks, ballet has experienced a resurgence in popularity while the beautiful blush tones and romance of ballet are the perfect backdrop for a wedding. Monique Lhuillier and Vera Wang are the place to go for romantic big gowns while these pink satin shoes from bhldn would be the perfect compliment to your dress or if you’re not keen on heels go for a simple pair of satin ballet pumps.

Keep the colour scheme pale with shades of blush, pale pink and cream and maybe a hint of metallic. Check out Martha Stewart Weddings for some great favour ideas like these knotted marshmallows or cake pops which double up as place settings and favours.

new bhldn collection…

August 18, 2011

I was excited to see that BHLDN has added a new collection of gowns to their site. A mix of both long and short, big and sleek, each dress retains all the key details that BHLDN is becoming synonymous with. From ruffles, pleats, ribbons and embroidery; each dress is unique and guaranteed to make you stand out in a sea of non-descript frothy numbers. Perfect for the vintage bride is this stunning Arcadia gown or for an elegant yet understated dress the Elysium gown is definitely one worth considering.

While browsing through You & Your Wedding, I was excited to see the new bridal collection from Alberta Ferretti launching late 2011. I love Alberta Ferretti – soft, feminine and romantic – these dresses would be an absolute dream to wear as a bride. Modelled by Poppy Delevigne, this gorgeous new collection takes inspiration from the glamour of Hollywood with each dress, from the 13 ready to wear collection, named after movie stars from both past and present including Greta, Marilyn, Ava, Isabelle, Scarlett and Penelope. These show stopping dresses are guaranteed to make you feel like a Hollywood starlet now the only difficulty will be choosing which one you want to be. Personally I’m rather taken with romantic full skirted Ava but which one are you – the Marilyn or the Scarlett or the Nicole?
