Today, I have one glamtastic bit of purple and lavender inspiration for you. When I came across this lavender gown, I knew I had to put a board together for it. Monochromatic decor is very on-trend for weddings this year (see the Winter edition of The Knot) and if you are a fan of purple, then this monochromatic glam inspiration is perfect for you.
In addition, I have some great lavender and purple bits and bobs from the participants of the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show to get you started on all of that wedding shopping. Speaking of the show, this year’s show will debut here on the Belle Memorie blog on Monday, March 18th. This year it’s bigger and better than ever with over 440 shops and LOTS of custom and one of a kind finds to help you make your wedding just as beautiful as your love. So, mark your calendars and enjoy your day!

Today’s trend comes from Bride Tide’s 2013 trend list…lavish florals. From breathtaking floral headpieces to swoonworthy tablescapes, this trend can be summed up in two words, “eye candy.” So, today I bring you enough floral eye candy to make your eyes glaze over in a stupor of georgeousness (yes, I just went the made up word route). I know you are going to find a great deal of inspiration in these luxe floral creations. Enjoy and by all means…indulge yourself!

When the pics of Chanel’s pre-Fall 2013 collection hit my inbox, my jaw dropped and I knew that I had to do a board inspired by Karl Lagerfeld’s opulent white and gold creations. Even at 79 years of age, Mr. Lagerfeld continues to inspire and create amazing works of art that fly in the face of tradition, yet echo a bit of timelessness.
So, how did I translate this amazing couture ensemble in to a bit of inspiration for you? Think chandeliers dripping with crystals, tons of candlelight, and floral garlands hanging from a ceiling of starlight. I hope you enjoy!

In the past year or two, reception lounges with their casual setting aside from the buffet and dance floor have become increasing popular at weddings. Bride Tide is predicting that the reception lounge popularity will increase in 2013 and lounges are definitely on trend. Personally, I love them. They provide a great option for your guests who either don’t want to dance, those who are taking a break from getting their dance on not just for rest, but for mingling and conversation without the noise of the dance floor and sans the stiff dining chair. There are ways to create a lounge for every theme, budget, and guest total. Here are some of my faves from around the ‘net.
