Modern Bride

This post is for those of you who like all things modern.  You want to take a few risks and wear something that is fashion forward and contemporary.  Here’s your dress.
While this category could be all over the place, I’m going to avoid the cut out dresses (no one really wants you to show up naked on your wedding day…) and go for something simple and straight with wrinkly, fun bands along the dress and a big dramatic bow in the back.  What does one pair with something that’s not-so-traditional?
I say a big but short and blushing pink veil that adds to the drama of the dress while not competing with it.  Nix the bold jewelry and go for some simple studs that play into the pink veil.
The modern bride may not want to marry in the traditional settings.  Where to choose from?  How about city hall, a band shell or fountain in the park?
And for this dress, you’ll need some tall shoes.  Choosing a platform will give you extra comfort. And why not one in pink as well?
If you’re going nontraditional, make sure to wear it with confidence!  So no matter what grandma says, this is your day so wear what speaks to you!

Grecian Goddess

For those of you soon to be brides who have watched the Gladiator one too many times, perhaps the wedding theme you’re envisioning is Grecian.
How to incorporate the theme?  Start with a flowing dress with a cinched waist.  Add crystals in your hair and lay your veil over top.  Throw on some sparkly but flat sandals.  And to really hit it home, use your bracelet as an arm cuff.
Take this theme on a destination wedding.  Say your vows under some ancient ruins or temple. What a special way to show your love will stand the test of time.
