Brides: Cannes Seaside Glamour Inspiration

Hello Beauties

Brides magazine recently underwent a modern transformation.  There is a subtle change in the font on the front cover and the layouts look so much fresher.  Brides website is also a hot spot for beautiful wedding inspiration with the same new look as the magazine.

Each month a new inspiration board is featured and I was so excited to see this month’s inspiration Hollywood Glamour in Cannes.  Cote de Azure is the most unpretentious, glamorous place I have ever been on Earth and I love the idea of using that as inspiration for your wedding day.

Cannes Modern Glamour Inspiration on Brides

Using a palette of vibrant orange, pink and green is a nod to the Art Deco style of the 1950’s, when the Cannes Film Festival was the place to launch a young starlets’ career.  Use the photos as an inspiration for your wedding day, your bridal shower or even your engagement party.

Monique Lhuillier: Spring 2013 Bridal Gown Fashion

Hello Beauties

It is a beautiful Southern California day and I am so glad it is the weekend!  I will be making my way to the Santa Fe Dam Recreation Area in Irwindale, CA for the Renaissance Pleasure Faire!  I go to the faire with my family every year and it is a huge festival with artists, performers, food and activities all decked out to look like an old English town.  This weekend is a Steam Punk costume contest.  I have heard about Steam Punk design from my sister, Alyson, so I am excited to get a first hand look at the fashion and inventions (and probably a whole lot of inspiration!)

So, I will leave you with Monique Lhuillier‘s Luxurious Spring 2013 Bridal Gown line.  All of the pictures can be found at Wedding Inspirasi, my go-to for the latest bridal gown fashion.  Have a great Saturday!

Vera Wang: Spring 2013 Bridal Collection

Hello Beauties

The New York City International Bridal Week was held this past weekend (April 14-16) and the top bridal designers showcased their new wedding gown designs for the Spring 2013 season.

For her Spring 2013 collection, Vera Wang took inspiration from the Chinese tradition of a bride wearing bright red on their wedding day.  Red is said to bring prosperity and luck to the happy couple.  Any woman wearing a Vera Wang gown on her wedding day is already a lucky lady!  For those bride’s that are a little less daring, all of the bridal gown’s shown are also available in white and various off white shades.
