{ It’s a great day for a PLAID wedding }

Visuelle

 

Maybe it’s my Wisconsin upbringing, but a girl must admit, I LOVE ME a GOOD PLAID! Fall is upon us, it’s a great time of year for changes in home decor and wardrobes, and let me tell you, it makes me downright GIDDY! You’re darn tooting, I’ll be sporting a flannel tunic with my leggings and riding boots this fall and probably drinking pumpkin spice coffee while doing so, that’s just how us northerners do; we have to cozy ourselves up for the pending freeze.  Let’s get talking about fall and winter weddings! WHOOT! There’s so many elements to add that warm and cozy feeling to your chilly/ish weather wedding; candlelight, lit fireplaces, warm lighting, hot drinks, comfort food, and PLAID! Another highlight is that, “Baby it’s cold outside” feeling adds a whole other layer of romance. Something about being cooped up in a cabin, in the snow, staying warm by a fire; is romantic, right?! I think so!  So, how about plaid in a wedding?! It can be done! It can definitely be done for a rustic themed wedding, but can also be done more subdued for an elegant look, as well! Burberry has an awesome plaid we all know for a reason, it classic, and AWESOME!  ANYWHO, here’s a couple of ways to incorporate a little plaid in your love day! So, to get you feeling cozy on this ALMOST fall day…GRAB your coffee and enjoy a little plaid wedding inspiration!

 

Let’s start with engagement photos,  fall is great time for them! Plus, who doesn’t love a Merry Christmas and Save the Date card!

{ EAT YOUR CAKE NAKED } ten pretty naked cakes

 

There’s A LOT of beautiful wedding cakes out there these days and the options seem endless to get delicious flavors as well as stunning visual cakes to top it off! Fondant covered cakes have made many bridal beauties elegant cake dreams come true, allowing sleek lines and details not able to be performed before the fondant hey day! However, as ALWAYS, just like I love myself many a fancy style white dress; I am a LOVER of all things cake as well! Butter cream covered, fluffily frosted, cupcakes pretties, cake pop cuties, fondant beauties, and NOW the trend of the NAKED CAKE! One thing I am definitive over is the importance of having a wedding cake. I heart traditions; they help signify special moments, so cut a cake gosh darnit and shove it OR nicely put it in each others’ cute faces and make that moment memorable! And, if you don’t…I’ll never know the difference so don’t worry about it! :) Okay…now back to cake styles,  if you’re looking for cake ideas and want something new and different OR maybe just don’t love tons of frosting…here are ideas you’ll love! Like I said…eat your cake…NAKED!

I love the way this one is iced!

{ Crown Yourself with Flowers }

Apologies my friends! Was out of town with the family yesterday and the time and internet signals seemed to slip away on me! Hopefully, I didn’t leave you in too much suspense for your Friday Fashion and Trend Report! :) Anywho, onto the pretties! So, I must admit I was inspired for this blog post from Visielle Productions Summer Bridal Show. The floral crowns were shown beautifully by some of the floral vendors, as well as, incorporated into some if the decor through out the show. And I LOVED them! What a great alternative for the brides who aren’t all about blingy tiaras or maybe you are about blingy tiaras, but a more natural look suits your dress, theme, or location. The moral of the story is, here’s another way to beautify and create a look that relays you and your style. Here are some elegant, romantic, and downright stunning ways to add a little floral to your crown!

 

Is this one fairytale-esque or what! Beautiful!

{ Wedding Dresses with BEAUTIFUL Backs }

A few years while attending a friend’s wedding, I had an AWE moment; she was absolutely stunning walking down isle with her father AND then it happened, an unexpected surprise; she walked past us revealing the most elegant back of a dress I had EVER seen. It was the perfect amount of beading and sparkle that lead your eyes down to her train flawlessly. It was breath-taking, classy, and memorable!  I feel like sometimes it’s easy to forget about all angles of our gown; and the majority of your dress’ first looks are at ceremonies, when you are briefly seen from the front, however, mostly from the side or back for the duration of your ceremony. AND this is the time when ALL EYES are on you! So here’s some inspiration to beautify your back side on your big day!

SWEET and NEAT

{ 10 Beautifully BELTED Wedding Dresses }

Accessorize. Accessorize. Accessorize!!! Have I mentioned how much I love and live for beautiful accessories?! If not, I must tell you; I LOVE and LIVE FOR beautiful accessories! Actually, for my own wedding, I had two separate sets of accessories with my dress. One set for our ceremony and a second set for the reception! So, remember gals, if you don’t two or three dress it up; you can still get multiple looks just by accessorizing! Good stuff! WooHoo accessories!

ANYWHO…one of my new favorite looks is a BEAUTIFULLY BELTED WEDDING DRESS! Why wouldn’t you want emphasize the thinnest part of you EVERYDAY, let alone your wedding day! And, the belts that are out there today are stunning, and I mean STUNNING! From floral, to feathery, to shiney, to sparkly, there is a bridal belt out that to meet everyone’s style. I must even admit, some of these belts make a gorgeous dress, DROP DEAD GORGEOUS! (P.S. on a side note, did you know the phrase “Drop Dead” was coined in 1962 meaning excellent? “Drop dead gorgeous” was coined in an article about Michelle Pfeiffer in 1985 and has stuck around ever since! Good phrase nonetheless, thanks to the awesome-ness of the cat-woman herself!) Okay, now that you know that random fact; here’s some weekly wedding inspiration for ya! Cheers to the belt! Enjoy!

This one makes me swoon! Love everything about this look!

{ Carnival Wedding Theme }

fc5d141b7ffb3a9bc842a18531264b54

SO…I told you it was coming! After my balloon post from last week, I couldn’t help but be inspired by the above photo and get excited for the events during this time of year! THE FAIR IS COMING TO TOWN!!! Call me old fashioned, but I LOVE  me a good fair, or maybe I should say, the tradition of the fair. The ferris wheel, games, caramel apples, cotton candy;  now imagine all those timeless accents glamour-ized into a WEDDING! Sounds AMMMM-AZZING! Will somebody PLEASE plan this wedding and invite me already! Here’s a couple ideas on how your fair, circus, carnival style wedding can be UNIQUE, FUN, and FABULOUS all rolled into one.

Ladies and Gents you are invited! Love this wording for an invite:

adec4f0b100cd5ccf107747d2bf91c54

Love these color schemes, reds, with pastels, and patterns! FANTASTIC! Also, I can’t help but love the vintage feel this theme has to offer as well, the pinwheels, banners, and round bulb lighting you’ll see in photos to come. BUT for now check out the details in these pretty cakes:

Here comes the GLAMOUR-IZED PART! White lights, amazing colors, and unique table settings, and decor to pull it all together!

How beautiful is the mixture of these white lights and colorful umbrellas!fa0509824c957636008a49da1c545de6

c99868e9434062efe0d8e2f29ed10739

 

Do you feel inspired?! How about excited for the FAIR?!? I feel both! You could be the “Fairest of the Fair” if you choose to do this theme, and it won’t be able to help but be “The Big Show” of the year! Okay, I’ll stop already! BUT someone PLEASE plan this wedding or I’m going to have to talk to my husband about renting me a ferris wheel and getting married again, AGAIN! I’m sure he’ll go for that! :) ANYHOW, HAPPY FAIR TIME ALL! Enjoy your corn dogs ladies and gents!
