Bridal Gown Trend: Blush Wedding Dresses

28 Feb

Wearing a dress that was not white or ivory was, until recent years, considered a strange move.  Over the past couple of years we began to see bits of colors popping up, but a whole dress in a color other than white or ivory was still very unconventional. This all changed this year, dresses in blush and pink began to appear in quite a few bridal fashion shows. You might say that this change might have something to do with the blush Monique Lhuillier dress Reese Witherspoon wore at her March 2011 wedding. Whatever brought about this change in bridal fashion we hope its here to stay!

Something Blue: Blue Nails!

17 Feb

Most brides stick to the traditional light pink or french manicure colors on their wedding day but if you’re looking for something fun and unique to do as the something blue on your big day, then blue nails are for you! Blue nail polish will provide you with a great photo op and it will draw more attention to your hands and your shiny new wedding band! Two of our favorite colors are Barbados Blue by essie & Yoga-ta Get This Blue! by OPI but there are many shades of blue to chose from.

If you do not want to be too extreme go with a lighter blue but if you want to go all out –  a sparkly dark blue like the one  above is the way to go! Experiment with colors before your wedding.   If you think the blue is too much for your nails then consider it as an option for your toes. Whatever you decide have fun!
