{ 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!

{ 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!

{ DOGS in WEDDINGS: Fun Ways to Include your Four-Legged Loves }

Dog

Okay, so anyone that knows me, knows I might have a slight obsession with my “fur-children”. I must admit, I’ve had floral arrangements and cupcakes made to look like my beloved fur-child, Chug, mostly as a joke, but, nonetheless a girl has done it! The truth is our pets have taken more of a staple in our lives than ever before and truly are considered family members. A lot of brides and grooms are trying to find unique and practical ideas to incorporate their four-legged family members in their special day. I definitely don’t suggest you do floral center pieces that resemble your dogs, cats, horses, etc., but to each their own; sometimes that stuff is downright hilarious! Anyhow, here are some fun, practical, and may I even say, CLASSY ideas to include your furry-family members and add a little more sweetness to your day!

How about a “getting ready” photo with your fur-family member, just in case they have to stay at home for the occasion. It’s like a dream of fancy and fluffiness!

94d988fced672c4b5ee3fdd9fe337a51

Tuxes and bowties on fur children, it’s like cuteness OVERLOAD! If you can’t find a website, there’s great makers of these adorable outfits on pinterest and etsy. Even if they’re used just for a flower or shoe photo opp, could there be any cuter props for accessories!

OR have you seen these floral collars to match your flowers, the sweetness is unbearable!

ee32f67b23bc0297e123e52398c1637f

Now, if you have a well trained fur-family member and are doing an outdoor wedding, here’s some FAB fur-friendly ideas! Pretty floral leashes, and those cute kiddos once known as flower girls or ring bearers, new duty of adding SO much cuteness, we can hardly handle!

Okay and I must add! I’m loving the new trend of the big round balloons! So, here’s a fun idea that I can’t get enough of too! Balloons on a fur child!

cf393e8d0d8947c8d141eca77feedbe1

But maybe these balloons instead?! In your color scheme of course!

OR add the newest and cutest messenger for the, “Here Comes the Bride” sign!

e27658eb8733f64d00b33201b6f828c3

If your fur-family members aren’t wonderfully trained, you can still can get away with a great family photo like this:

Four words: CUTEST CAKE TOPPERS EVER! (These both can be found on Pinterest!)

f3f62b292f7e22b198f4c37d5b1be1ba

 

OR groom’s cakes are definitely a fun way to get away with adding a little crazy personality! Maybe we shouldn’t be so bias; let’s just call them “Personality Cakes”! It’s wild how crafty cakes have become in the last how many years, but what a perfect day to make a splurge and jump on the cake-fabulousity-wagon!

 

Okay, okay, to your pure devastation maybe it’s just inconceivable to have your dog’s presence at your wedding. Chin up friend! There’s always “Save the Dates”!

Hope you enjoyed you, fur-friend-lovers, you!

A New Years Gift of Visuelle Productions Bridal Shows

A New Years Gift of Visuelle Productions Bridal Shows.

This pretty much says it all…Happy New Year!!!!

Wedding destination-Northwoods

Good morning WordPressians,

Today we are going to go to our own backyard in search of beautiful wedding inspirations. Many don’t realize it, but Wisconsin is the perfect destination wedding spot for those outdoorsy types and just for those who love beautiful views of lakes and landscapes!

A great place close to the Valley is the Paine Art Center in Oshkosh, WI. It’s so beautiful and the perfect place for any wedding!

Here is a great example of what could be done for the ceremony aisle. Somewhere with a wooded path this would be so gorgeous and just perfect for the fall season that is creeping up on us! The log benches are awesome as well, this is where it’s good to know someone who’s good with a saw 😉 Another great northwoods ceremony idea could be on a lake front. In this beautiful green pasture with the white flowers scattered across the aisle, it’s so beautiful, simple and elegant. Surely a classic.

And even though it may possibly rain somewhere out here in Wisconsin, don’t let it cancel your parade! Have some sort of back up, whether its an over hang for the ceremony and umbrellas for the guests or a cozy barn with cute hay bale seats.  And don’t take for granted mother natures decisions. Take it for the great photo opportunity it is! We all know life is not about waiting for the storm to pass but learning to dance in the rain!

Here’s an adorable head table. Any type of fruit that matches your color scheme would be super cute as a center piece like these lemons. They are so simple and yet fit the theme perfectly!  Using space scraps of wood to makes signs  all over is perfect as well, or if you have the option available to you, large piece of bark that have fallen off or birch bark. 🙂

Here’s a great way to decorate for the reception. Outside with a touch of class by hanging the chandeliers and the long cozy tables. I love the wooden table numbers.

This is another option for decorating tables for the reception. Very outdoorsy but a little more fancy that the last style. It really depends on what look you are going for. I especially love the draping of the crystals here.

This is so cute for a card table and sign in table. Have the guests each write and individual mini letter to the couple! The use of the old dresser is cute and can easily be incorporated into your outdoor wedding 🙂

I really really love this cake! The lines are super simple but the texture creates depth and the flowers are perfect. Any outdoor wedding could use a cake like this! So chic! The wooden base is also another great touch, just remember to put some sort of sheet down to protect the cake or use a butcher block sealant to make the wood food safe!

For an outdoor wedding, the bride must keep in mind the weather when she’s having her hair done. This style show below may not hold up well on a particularly windy day but it’s oh so cute! And who said no one loves a little windblown natural look anyway 😛 The addition of flowers in the hair would be perfect for the woodsy wedding too!

As well as the hair this dress is perfect for a northwoods wedding, the lace is simple and traditional and the flowing lines of the bottom of the gown are perfect for a warm summer day.

This next dress would be a lot heavier than the first but is still awesome for a northwoods fall wedding. If it’s cooler outside it would be perfect to keep you from freezing. Although if its scorching you may pass out :/ Make sure to keep in mind location and weather when picking out yours and the parties dresses and clothing options. You don’t want anyone super uncomfortable. The happier everyone is the less problems that are likely to occur. Meaning less to stress about the day of!

This is such a chic way to incorporate the blue into your wedding. Of course adding it to your shoes has been really popular and this shiny flat option is great, especially if you’re getting married outside in the grass…where heels may create a problem with your stability 😛 And the bouquet, with it’s combination of real flowers to the cloth flowers in bright blue is adorable and just adds the right about of Pop!

Just for fun here are some gorgeous rings that any Wisconsin bride is sure to love. This one has a really antique feel, as if it were to have been passed on from generation to generation. So classic and beautiful.

This men’s ring is a lot more modern than the women’s, but still fits with the theme. Not as flashy as some rings and I really think a lot of northwoods grooms would like this.

Just because I can, I through this in here! This is a perfect example of why Wisconsin would be an amazing place for anyone outside of the state to consider it as a destination wedding location! Just look at those fields of cranberries! Gorgeous, although I’m not quite sure how she plans to keep that dress after this, but as far as any trash the dress shoots I’ve seen goes, this one takes the cake! You can’t get shots like this just anywhere 🙂 And I”m sure proud to say good ol’ Wisconsin is one of those places!

And as we part, here is a lovely shot of the couple going off to wherever life takes them. Or another option…a grand entrance into their ceremony. Either way, super cute and romantic. And perfect if you’re having your northwoods wedding on the river or lake front!

As you can see there are many wonderful options right out our backdoor! Why not take it for all it’s worth in it’s beauty! For more ideas and these pictures you can go to my Pinterest. Happy Wednesday to all! 🙂

Wedding Theme: Summer Lovin’

Hello Blogging Beauties!

Jess here, offering you another installment of what I find to be beautiful wedding ideas! Side note: Model Your Brand and Visuelle just got back from Florida! There will be pictures up soon to showcase our trip, it was quite the adventure!

So this week I’ve decided to bring to you the fashions and ideas that are oh so popular for this summers/spring’s weddings. Got a little Grease going on with the Summer Lovin’! Old style is Hot right now and you will mostly see this in the cuts of dresses. Colours are going to be bright but mixed with pastels and they will speak volumes!

Here is a gorgeous canary diamond ring. I’m sure any bride would be thrilled to receive this huge diamond. Unless you are absolutely against beautiful things! Or are just really traditional…But none the less, a stunning start to the summer lovin’ idea.

Now we must dress our  bride and here are two different options that are stunning. The first option being a little more simple and classic. Clean flowing lines that would be great for an outdoor wedding in the middle of summer. Just enough bling to add some interest. The second is classic as well and a bit more traditional with some flair from the flower buds all over the gown. I love this ivory colour and really think it would go well outdoors for a more natural feel. The fit it beautiful as well and would be amazing on so many brides!

As for the hair and makeup for the bride, I would really base it on the weather and time frame. If it’s really humid and warm, I’d opt for an updo. It would give you more control over your hair and avoid any frizz! For a calm, beautiful day, flowing hair would be beautiful! If it got way too warm, you could always sweep it up into a loose updo for the reception.

These shoes would be stunning for any wedding, but I love this colour. The extra bling is certainly welcome as well! And not to mention, a pop of colour under the dress has become a huge trend this year and last. Making that colour blue just leaves one more thing checked off your to-do list!

Now you need to dress your lovelies that will be helping throughout your big day! Each of these are beautiful and once again, weather permitting you can go short, or longer for a cooler summers day. The tricky thing about planning a summer wedding is cooperating with the weather that you are unsure of. This colour would be amazing to brighten up any dull moments at your wedding. It adds so much fun!

Make sure to check periodically the week before the wedding and prepare for any unexpected wedding weather blunders. Grab some cute umbrellas for the party, just think of all the awesome photo opportunities that would be available! So just remember to embrace everything that is thrown your way. 🙂

Every bride (I’m sure!) is excited to have flowers at her wedding. These are great for summer and bring in beautiful pastels. Against the yellow in the bridesmaid dresses, this would be enough to pop but not over power! I love the boutonnieres as well, each a little different on the same palette of colours.

This centerpiece would go well with any summer wedding and the colours can be easily altered with different flower choices. The yellow is brilliant though!

Probably one of my favorite parts now, the Cake!!! Yum! Cake pops are a great alternative to the traditional tiers of cake and are just as delectable! Let me tell you, if you get the right baker, you will Not be disappointed! There are so many ways to decorate a table with them as well. Same goes for cupcakes, less of a mess for cutting. Each person already has their own individual cake! MMMMmmmmMMM 🙂

Now that you are full and in need of a thirst quencher, this table of drinks is a cute way to once again add more colour and offer a great variety for your guests. I would recommend putting these in a bed of ice though. Depending on how warm it is, but cold sangria is much more delicious!

Another way to cool off your guests would be to offer this dessert. Different sorbets or gelatos make a great alternative for people with allergies or that want a gluten free option. If you make that extra effort for your guests they’ll feel much more comfortable and your evening will be all that much more enjoyable!

And now, signing out with this  cute way to have your guests sign in with these whimsical corks. Although, you’d have to start drinking up right now, or contact your closest restaurant to start collecting those corks! (I’m already preparing for my wedding to come in the next 27 years…get the wine ready!) The beautiful purple from the different wine is awesome as well and very fitting! 

Hope this was enjoyed by all. We’ve now decided to separate our pinterests. One for Visuelle Productions, one for Model Your Brand and of course my personal. These will still be on my personal, but from now on I will include them in Visuelle’s so make sure to follow both and get the most ideas for your wedding! Happy Monday to all!
