Tips or Trends Tuesday: Trend: Yellow Bridal Gowns

The popularity of colored bridal gowns is on the rise. Many design houses are producing, red, black, pink, blush, and blue designs that are gorgeous! With this rise in popularity, it can often take just one celebrity wedding for a new bridal trend to take off. Thanks to Amber Tamblyn (formerly of General Hospital and recently of House M.D.) golden gown she wore for her wedding to fellow actor, David Cross (most notably of Arrested Development), yellow bridal gowns are the latest trend in bridal fashion. I fully expect to see a lot more sunshine colored gowns at Spring Bridal Market next year.

For the time being, here are some gorgeous yellow bridal and designer gowns from butter to neon to tide you over until next Bridal Market or to take to your own designer (ahem…Etsy has several and I’ll be posting yellow gowns from some extremely talented Etsy designers on Friday). Aren’t they just a whole lot of beautiful?!

Wedding Wednesday: Purple Geometric Inspiration

Yesterday, I introduced you to the geometric trend with assorted bits and bobs of inspiration. Today, I wanted to put together a cohesive geometric inspired board with some classic wedding elements. The board is centered around this gorgeous purple Tony Ward gown with a rectangular neckline and square and rectangular paillettes.

I hope you enjoy the set!

Sunday Surprise: Bridal Market NY- First peek

Well, I’ve spent my weekend scouring the net for pics of this weekend’s shows at Bridal Market NY. Let me just say that there are some fabulous hits and some seriously scary misses. When all is said and done, I will have a complete rap up, but for now, these are a few of my faves thus far:

Friday’s Favorites: Etsy Treasuries: Delicate Baby’s Breath, Ravishing Red, Memento Mori, and Bridal Headwear for Short and Sassy Hair

Well, I’m looking forward to a bit of hopefully real snow in Denver tonight and tomorrow. I’m hoping that 30% chance ends up being a few inches. We’ve had our first snow already, but none of it survived past noon the same day. I’d love to put on my snow gear and have a snowball fight with my kiddo. Now, on with the show!

This Friday’s Favorites has SO many great wedding details I can hardly stand it. Of course, this old goth’s heart skips a beat with the Memento Mori treasury, but I think my favorite is the gorgeous red bridal gown from Avail & Company (an Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team Member). Here it is in all of its glory:

Take care and have a great weekend!
