This Spring Bridal Fashion Shows were all about new, fun, flirty headpieces! Offbeat takes on traditional bridal headpieces were everywhere on the runway this season. While some of these may be over the top for you, I think they can inspire you to think outside of the traditional veil. If your Mom is pushing for you to have a traditional veil one, compromise can be to wear one for the ceremony and wear the one that you love for your reception. Party time!!

This Melissa Sweet bridesmaid dress was accessorized with a headpiece that included a life-size model of a bird.

Trendsetting designer Johnna Ho thought outside the box by constructing this faux patent-leather wedding dress.

Aside from the Frankenstien hair, I love this idea for your bridesmaids!

Congratulations Uzoa and Sayed!!

The talented Melissa of Melissa Kay Photography took these gorgeous pictures. She did a gorgeous job capturing the emotion of the day!

Tracy from Springwell Gardens made the bouquets and arrangements. She is such a talent. What is so great about Tracy is that she grows most of the flowers she uses in her phenomenal garden.

Fierce ladies!!

They were married on April 25th! It was a gorgeous day, a little warm, but all around goregous!
The Crabtree Marriott was fantastic to work with! She was such a radiant bride.

How sweet is this picture? Those are the grooms parents in the background.

I often get asked, what is the best way to cut cost for your wedding? There is always one answer:

Cut your guest list.

The more people you invite to your wedding the more money you’ll spend over all. The more guests means:

  • More invitations to be mailed
  • More food to serve
  • More tables and linens and china to rent
  • More cocktail napkins, matchbooks, and other details

So when you’re planning your wedding, draw up your guest list first to see how many people you are planning on inviting. Then look at your budget and see if you can afford to have all of these people at your wedding. If you have to cut the list, better to do this early before you send out save-the-date cards and book a location.

I love Etsy! There are some great vendors and such great unique items. I have found the vendor Modern Romance. They make such gorgeous and unique dupioni silk accessories. They are prices reasonably from $22 – $98.

Big flowers have so transcended Carrie Bradshaw!

This purse is the perfect size for carrying all the wedding day essentials!

If you don’t want to wear a veil or if you want to take if out for the reception how gorgeous is this??

How much do I love Purple and Gray together? Let me count the ways…

I love everything about this combination. Gray is going to be a HUGE trend in 2009 and 2010. It is so versatile. You can use it to accent with yellow, navy, pink, greens, and so much more. I will definitely be posting more combinations soon! I love jewel tones, I am obsessed with them!

Here is an inspiration board I put together.

Oh Vera, you never do me wrong! This dress is sensational and sets the whole look and feel of the wedding!

I think this dress by Kenneth Pool is divine.

The men can be so very dapper in this classic tux (Shirt; both by Isaia. Bow tie; Pocket square: both by Brooks Brothers. Shoes by Calvin Klein Collection. Cuff links by Dunhill.)

When I was living in DC my favorite time of year was Cherry Blossom season. So it makes sense that I love Pink and Brown weddings! I think it is the softness of a pale pink accented with a harsher chocolate brown. I put together these story boards for all things Cherry blossom related!

These are some fabulous letterpress
invitations (top right) from Style Hive. I am in LOVE with these Cherry Blossom twigs (bottom row left and middle) from White Aisle . What great color these favor boxes will add to your table!
How gorgeous are these pink pearl earrings for your Bridesmaids? They are from Blue Nile for $50. They would be a great accent to these gorgeous Amsale bridesmaids dresses. Your bouquet could be soft peonies, like these from Peonies and Polaroids.

I hope these give you some inspiration!!
