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!

Before we dive in to Monday’s Finding, I want to talk to you about how proud I am of my friends and community today. Last night was the candlelight vigil for the victims and their loved ones of the Aurora shooting. With talk of nefarious group/s planning to attend and disrupt the vigil, a few of my friends jumped in and created an event to counteract any negativity mourners might encounter. Through the power of Facebook, in less than two days, approximately 10,000 people attended and formed a human wall, linking arms to protect victims and their families from these nefarious hate mongers.
I couldn’t be prouder of my community and my state in how this tragedy has brought us all together and the outpouring of heroism and love that has been shown. I continue to pray for the victims and their families and I hope you will too.
On with today’s Monday’s Finding: gorgeous cake inspiration for your glam fete. Are you planning a glam themed wedding? Cake bling, feathers, metallics, ruffles, and out of the box shapes are great glamtastic decor for a cake that will likely be the centerpiece for your reception. Here are some great glamorous cakes I found via Pinterest:
Take care all and have a wonderful day!
While I sit here in my non-air-conditioned home, I await my most favorite time of the year: Fall. For me, Fall brings about a respite from the dog days of summer and this year is no exception. I grow tired of the daily 90 degree plus temperatures, unusual for Denver. I long to see nature prepare for it’s winter sleep. I want to see the aspens change and most of all: Halloween.
Halloween and Dia de los Muertos are my favorite holidays. I grew up in San Diego and my love of the Day of the Dead stems from the vivid culture in places like Old Town and Bonita. I think it was as a child being surrounded by the normalcy of death and the promise of renewal that comes from the waning time of year is where my love of skulls and skeletons developed.
Today I wanted to share with you a different sort of Halloween/Dia de los Muertos/Fall influenced wedding with a color palette influenced by Kim Kardashian’s (groan, I know…I know) black and white color scheme. I hope you are inspired to go a little glam and outside the box in terms of styling a Fall wedding. It doesn’t have to be your typical orange, brown, and yellow for a beautiful Fall fete.
