Wedding Inspiration - Glamorous Style

One of the hardest things about planning your wedding day is deciding on a wedding theme.  It sets the tone for your whole day.  There are lots of ways to find inspiration on many themes, but today owner Erin Bouchard is sharing some Glamorous inspiration.

Although I simply adore lace and rustic elements mixed in with weddings, I am thrilled that some brides in the store lately have been turning to more of a sparkly, glamorous, upscale wedding gown.  So with that said, I thought that I would do a little wedding inspiration, with more of an upscale feel.

How stunning would this be for your reception.  Large mirrors show off your lighting and make your space look more open and spacious.

How beautiful with a gown like this be for your bridesmaids?

And of course no wedding would be complete without beautiful bejeweled shoes.

Bridal Inspiration - Enchanted, Woodland Themed Wedding.

Today, on the blog, I wanted to share some inspiration for a woodland or enchanted themed wedding.  Themed weddings can be a lot of fun & they give your guests the opportunity to attend a wedding that's a little outside of the box.  It's easy to incorporate a theme into your invitations, decor, colors and more!  Get a little creative and you'll LOVE the results.

We've had a few brides in the store lately that have been getting married in a forest.  We simply adore the idea of a woodland, forest, enchanted affair and so we searched through pinterest to find some of the best ideas for you.

The backdrop of nature is beautiful all on it's own.  You can do simpler decor & let the outdoors speak for itself.

Again, let the beauty speak for itself in simpler, bright floral bouquets.

The perfect gown for an enchanted wedding is something simple and flowy.  We adore this lace gown with pockets.  It would look amazing with a small belt with a bit of beading or all on it's own.
