As you know Met Gala happened few days ago. This is by far my favorite fashion event of the year. Met gala picks a different theme each year and this years theme was dedicated to the first American couturier, Charles James (a far cry from last years “punk” theme). Charles James style is very glamourous and chic, so I was more than excited to see all the dresses celebrities would pick for this event. Here are my few picks:
White has always been traditional color for weddings. But you can still spice it up with splash of color, by adding accessories. Don’t be afraid to add pizzaz and play with your favorite colors. Shoes, earrings and cuffs are easy way to incorporate pop of color into your beach wedding.
Mayya’s Beach Trend Reports are back! Ahh, what a season we had in 2013. It was busy, fulfilling, and just plain awesome! When I was looking over the gorgeous pictures from 2013 weddings, the idea of doing 10 Favorites was born. We are so lucky to work with the most stylish, creative and trendy brides. So today Mayya’s Fashion Report brings you Princess Wedding Staff’s 10 Favorite Bridal Bouquets from 2013.
Mayya’s Trend note:
Blooms: Lush peonies, garden roses, orchids and carnations all seemed to dominate bridal bouquets in 2013
Colors: Blush Pink (yay!), pure white, and green were classic choice for beach weddings
Bling it: Vintage dazzles, jewels, pearls, and crystals made a striking statement in 2013 floral designs
Sentimental value: lockets or piece of jewelry with special meaning to bride, added personal touch to beach ceremony
Glitter! Feathers! Diamonds! Gold! Make the statement anyway you can!
Beach Wedding Ceremony Style: Glamour bride is confident and loves everything luxurious, so Legacy Package is a winner for this bride. White chiffon on our bamboo arbor, peonies with dangling Swarovski Crystals will add that perfect sparkle. Ceremony feels decidedly distinguished with live violin or harp music trickling in. Your guests will feel like they have been transported to another universe that is full of glamor, opulence and charm.
Color Palette: White with touch of gold, pink, champagne, red or royal blue.
Hair: Find a cute feather accessory for your hair. The bigger the diamonds in your jewelry, the better! Big sparkly stud earrings, or shiny bangles are great!
Shoes: for shoes, go for sexy glitzy heel. Maybe even try find some shoes with many diamonds glued to them. The more the better with this style!
We have talked and blogged so much about girl’s fashion that we somehow forgot about guys. How could we? Well today its all about you, gentlemen.
Before choosing attire for your Destin beach wedding define your style: are you classic kind of guy or are you more hip? Here are few fashionable options to make you look and feel like a billion bucks:
Casual beach look: white linen shirt with khaki or grey pants
Men in suite: who doesn’t love man in suit? For a beach wedding choose light fabric (seersucker suit is great option). Stick with different shades of grey (and not the fifty kind beige and white. You sure to woe your bride in one of these:
Hip kind a guy: add bow tie, vest and suspenders.
Accessories: Add luxury and personality to your look with accessories such as cufflinks, tie (in your wedding color), boutonniere, neatly folded handkerchief, or suspenders (totally trendy). Oh and sunglasses (just not during the ceremony, please!).
While beach weddings are a bit more relaxed that church weddings, remember that it’s
still a celebration and therefore guests should be dressed to represent that. Also remember that there will be lots of pictures taken and you want to look your best don’t you! So what do you wear? You don’t want to look casual or overdressed.
Here are few tips: pretty floral dress is always a good choice. For a bohemian look go for a flowy maxi dress. Bright colors and prints look great on the beach.
Absolute no no’s for beach weddings (or any kind of wedding for that matter) are jeans and casual shorts (girls). Oh and no white please!
