Ruby Red Wedding Inspiration

Posted on July 31st, 2012 by annalemberger

Let love lead the way at your elegant ruby-toned wedding. Nothing says passion and romance quite like deep reds and luxurious fabrics. Have fun with the color by adding a surprising splash of deep ruby into your bridal ensemble. The red bodice on the Sincerity Bridal gown is a unique twist on the traditional white gown while still remaining classic. Red shoes and lips are also great ways to make a statement on your wedding day. For your signature drink, choose a red wine from a year that holds special meaning for you and your partner. Toast to your future with personalized red wine glasses; they will make a great keepsake for you and your wedding party.

A Touch of Green Wedding Inspiration

Posted on July 15th, 2012 by annalemberger

I fell in love with the White by Vera Wang bridal gown collection at David’s Bridal when I first saw the pieces in all of their satin and organza glory at a bridal showcase last fall. The gowns are timeless, flattering, fun, elegant, and relatively affordable considering the designer label. I am especially smitten with the ivory ensemble pictured below. The added ebony, horsehair sash is a spunky twist on an otherwise classic A-line, and the lace appliqué is simply stunning. With a gown like this, the only other accessories you will need are a simple headband, a ring, and a dashing groom. You may also want to throw on a garter for a little fun later! Let your wedding gown be the centerpiece of an elegant ebony and ivory wedding. Mix in splashes of vibrant light greens to represent new life and new beginnings. Make sure your guests leave their advice and wisdom for this new life chapter in a personal wedding wishes envelope guest book.

White Lace Wedding Inspiration

Posted on July 9th, 2012 by annalemberger

Vintage-inspired lace details are making a statement on bridal runways this year. Lace evokes a sense of timeless elegance and delegate beauty that is appropriate for any bride and wedding theme, from elegant to rustic. Pair lace details with other white fabrics and elements, like satin and ostrich feathers. Emphasizing texture and pattern over color creates a truly unique look that shows off the beauty of subtle and intricate details.

Bring on the Bling: Wedding Jewelry Inspiration

Posted on July 3rd, 2012 by annalemberger

Today I read an NPR story about an “anti-cheating ring” selling on thecheeky.com. Etched on the inside of the wedding band, the phrase “I’m Married” leaves an imprint on the wearer’s finger if the ring is removed. Needless to say, the wedding ring has caused quite a stir. What do you think about this “anti-cheating ring”?

For jewelry that is a bit more traditional and positively inspiring check out some of my favorite pieces below. The Catherine Necklace and Earring Set will add sophistication to your bridal ensemble or make a great gift for your lovely bridesmaids. One of my favorite bridal trends is the headband–a simple yet equally stunning alternative to the classic tiara. Make a statement with a gorgeous Swarovski Rhinestone Headband.
