But we've been seeing some daring ladies don another lovely color: lavender. I wanted to put these two trendy wedding dress colors up against each other and see which would come out victorious! (p.s. if you love them both, check out this pin!) Fair skinned and blonde brides look absolutely amazing in deeper shades of lavender with blue … [Continue reading]

sofoly’s wonderland collection

blush wedding dress from Sofoly

I'm about to nerd out on you ladies in a big way so brace yourselves. One of my majors in college was Russian (and I'm obsessed with all things slavic - thus the profusion of Anna Karenina, Eastern European, & Russian themed wedding inspiration boards) and in order to not forget the language I so painstakingly learned I read Russian blogs. It was there, two years ago that I first became aware of Sofoly wedding dresses. So when Maria Pushkova shared an image … [Continue reading]

Maroon wedding inspiration

Woun and Samuel are getting married in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, at the gorgeously rustic Aldea de Sestelo restaurant.

For a vintage chic wedding with this color palette look towards pomegranate reds for your main 'pop' color. I love the idea of wearing dark red shoes, using … [Continue reading]

Pixar's Brave Elopement styled wedding shoot from Bit of Ivory Photography

The awesomeness of the red hair and the fact that Amanda is a total doppelganger for Merida (who I've heard is becoming a legit and official Disney Princess this summer) aside, be sure to watch for the little arrow card that says 'we make our own legend!' Isn't this elopement shoot great!? I am a big fan of the movie Brave so I fell in love with it straight … [Continue reading]

This chic, neutral wedding inspiration board is definitely a new favorite of mine! The bits of blush and light yellow add the loveliest hints of color and to pull off this look be sure to mix urban with vintage. The embellished wedding dress and oversized flower fascinator take this bride right to center stage when placed against the simplicity of the cake, exposed wood, and neutral color palette.
