{Beauty in Burlap}

Beauty in Burlap
Burlap has become such a trend, really capturing the rustic and vintage vibe. This fabric is
easily printed on via stenciling and is offered in a variety of colors.
So many possibilities it's endless.

{Lovely lil Lingerie}

Lovely lil Lingerie
Since lingerie parties and Boudoir photo shoots are becoming such a popular trend, I thought I'd make a lil post. While this subject can be a very provocative, I believe it is best to keep in mind that subtleness can be sexy. Listen to your mother when she says "less is more."
These images above really capture overtly feminine looks from the delicate lingerie to the actual cropping of the photos. It looks as though the photographer has captured little moments that look so effortless.
My two "go to" designers for bridal lingerie are BHLDN and Claire Pettibone.

{Tying the Knot}

Tying The Knot
Okay gentlemen! I rarely post menswear items, but this is something I just can't seem to get enough of. These vintage bow ties are simply delightful and quite easy to make. If you know how to operate a sewing machine, you could make one yourself. While these seem to make amazing accessories for your day, they can also double as great gifts for the men in the bridal party. Throwing in a pair of vintage cuff links just adds to the uniqueness.

{What Type of Bride Are You}

What type of bride are you?
We've chosen our brides, now where do you fit in?

The Statement Bride: Yes, that's right, we said "statement" bride. She is strategic in her thought process. She thinks about the impact of her gown, accessories and decor, but finds the balance in it all. Pairing a simple gown with an over-the-top statement piece or vice versa is her thought process.

The Starry-Eyed Bride: Her looks are inspired by Princess Grace, a timeless and classic icon who lived that fairy tale life. Dreaming of her special day is something she has been doing since she was a little girl. Her day has been meticulously planned with each item complimenting the next. This starry-eyed bride is drawn to classic styles, but wants to be the focal point.

The Mod Bride: Her love for fashion has inspired her day. Straight from the runway, she looks for the newest in trend, while carefully accessing which new looks will last the test of time.

The Eclectic Bride: The eclectic bride picks and chooses from different eras, aesthetics and styles to make it just her own. The best part about this is mixing and matching anything you want! While most brides stick to their "theme," this eclectic bride takes her loves makes for a quirky and cute. 

The Eccentric Bride: She is eccentric in her own way. This bride wants her day to express her own personal style and doesn't take into consideration trend. She is marching to the beat of her own drum and is more stunning for it. Be brave, be bold and enjoy that special day!

The Boho Bride: She is always aware of her surroundings and draws on it to add beauty to her special day. Bohemian brides see the beauty in every little detail and specialize in enhancing it. Nature plays a key role in her wedding, acting as a perfect backdrop.
