Style Thursday: Super Chic Bridal Pantsuits

Are you dreading the idea of lugging a 25-pound dress on your wedding day? Don’t like dresses at all? Favor a more masculine look on your special day? Well, for those of you who would much rather skip the dress, but still retain that “bridal” look, I’ve got some great bridal pantsuit inspiration as well as straight off the runway finds I know you’ll love.

From Vera Wang to Roberto Cavalli, white/ivory pantsuits are a super chic way to be authentically you on your wedding day. Stay true to you and enjoy every moment feeling relaxed and comfortable in your wedding ensemble.

Wedding Wednesday: Chanel: White, Black, and Gold Inspiration Board

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!

Stunner Thursday: Beyond the Ordinary White Shoes

Given the rise of color in the bridal fashion world, there are still many brides that prefer traditional white. Just because you are going traditional in color, doesn’t mean your footwear can’t be a bit beyond the ordinary. Here are a few of my favorite white bridal shoes that definitely make a statement:

Wedding Wednesday: Modern Cameo Inspiration

Well, I’m back from CA and it was a good trip. My Dad’s service was lovely and complete with an all Navy honor guard that I know would have pleased Dad to no end. Taking my kiddo to his first trip at Disneyland and CA Adventure for his birthday was TONS of fun! He got to meet a lot of characters (the character breakfasts are SO worth it) as well as get a pirate makeover and official membership in the Pirates League:

Such a fun time and it was great to see friends and family as well as meet my soon to be Mother-in-Law who is very nice and I look forward to getting to know better.

Now, on with this week’s inspiration board: Modern cameo inspiration. Cameos are such a fashion trend right now and are taking a big departure from their most commonly known high Victorian aesthetic. Personally, I love them and have several family heirloom cameos and have plans to increase my collection. For those who love cameos, but want a modern edge to their wedding design, take a peek at this board and it’s use of clean lines and a black and white palette. Happy Planning!

Wedding Wednesday: Black and White Butterfly Masquerade

Today’s Wedding Wednesday was inspired by this amazing cake (see board below) from Gimme some Sugar Custom Cakes in Las Vegas, NV. Gimme Some Sugar is a custom cake design studio with some truly amazing creations. In addition to the gallery on their site, here is a link to their Flickr page with even more fabulous cakes. Seriously, their cakes are jaw droppingly gorgeous and I could look at their work all day!

Many couples often pair a stand out color with a black and white palette, but I think that a simple black and white palette works beautifully on its own. After finding these gorgeous butterfly masquerade masks, I had my inspiration board theme. I hope you enjoy it!
