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



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!








Plaid invites?! I think yes! AND they can suit many a color scheme!






Speaking of different plaid color schemes! Here’s a few! AND how great would all these be for guests for an outdoor fall wedding OR cover ups for the bride and bridesmaids! Could be awesome…just saying… :)




Ohhh girl, get yourself some plaid shoes for under that white dress! How cool are these! AND what a fun surprise when you lift up that dress!




This plaid throw is adding a great back drop for the details of your day.




Plaid table runners! I think YES!




For the fellas, this will help “TIE” in your inspiration… :)



Or, for a more relaxed, outdoor wedding, the guys could wear something like this?!




NOW, here’s a look that, I must admit, I’m KIND OF in love with! Okay, so AFTER the I dos, a bride just might need a way to warm up, accessorize, or maybe just add to the theme of her day! Check out this neat idea…it’s kind of ADORBS!




Another look, plus LOVE this hair!




Okay, this completes your plaid inspiration for your fall-ish feeling Friday! Hope you are feeling inspired, excited for cooler weather, or at least a little coffee buzzed my ladies! For more wedding inspiration this fall, don’t forget to attend our upcoming bridal show in Appleton at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center, November 2 from 10:30am to 3:00pm! Cheers beauties!

{ 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!



I love how this compliments her perfectly imperfect side braid:




I love the whites, ivories, and blush florals in this timeless crown:






The arrangement and coloring of this crown draws you right into her eyes! And love the pop of that yellow shawl! Gorgeous!





These floral pieces, the lace of her dress, natural makeup and hair compliment each other perfectly!





Simple, sweet, and stunning.





Love the pop of color and that bouquet beautiful or what!





Lip color + Flowers  Placement + Hairstyle = LOVE





Simplistic and stunning! Feels like winter in a warm way.





Another fairytale-esque photo for my horse lovers!








This floral crown compliments her hair color and skin tone amazingly! B.E.A.utiful!




Okay, I must admit, this one’s my fave! I love her pastel hair and the arrangement and color of this floral crown! Oh, so pretty…

{ 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!




The asymmetrical lines of this dress STUN me! LOVE…LOVE…and LOVE!



This ornate beading is BEAUTIFUL in EVERY way!






FOR those of you who adore a little or a lot of SPARKLE! Is this glam or what!






GIRLS love PEARLS and FLOWY BOWS! I love the girly-ness of this gown!



For my sparkle lovers again…this is a show-stopper!



The beading and sparkle on the back and front of this dress ARE PERFECT! My eyes love following all the lines!



For my ball gown beauties! Could this be any more ELEGANT! I think not!



I LOVE back-necklaces…and this gown suits this trend perfectly, the ivory, blush, and copper coloring together are PERFECTION!



In LOVE! So many beautiful textures put together flawlessly!



Simple dress, I think NOT! The flowy-ness and sparkle in this dress take my breath away!






Strappy, sparkly, and STUNNING!




Sparkly and surprising!



Traditional with a beautiful back twist!

{ 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!



LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this belt!




Simply beautiful.




Elegant. Love all these textures and fabrics.




Another elegantly simple look and the belt makes it perfection.




Pretty and pink…love the addition of sparkle this belt adds.




Another look that makes me SWOOOOOON. GORGEOUS!



Pretty little waist…with a pretty sparkly belt.




Another look I love.




I love the “matchiness” of the belt and the bowtie. My eyes adore following the sweetness.




That’s 10 Belted wedding dresses I loved! Here’s a little extra for ya! Loving this belt and the criss cross… * sigh * pretty things!




Okay, that’s the fun fancy-ness for a Friday! Hope you all enjoyed! Happy accessorizing!

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:


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’s some FUN and UNIQUE touches:


Your guests will love this photo opp:



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








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!
