Your guide to wedding dress necklines

Posted on May 4th, 2014 by annalemberger

Ladies – lets talk about wedding dress necklines. There are a lot of options out there and picking the right one is key to making you feel confident, comfortable, and gorgeous as you walk down the aisle, pose for photos, and dance the night away. You will want to try on several types to see what works best for your body type and bust. No bride wants to be pulling up her neckline or adjusting herself all day. While good tailoring will help with that, picking the perfect neckline is also key. First step is learning the lingo. Here is a list of the most common neckline options with photos to help make your gown buying experience a little bit easier.

This neckline takes its name from a type of flat-bottomed boat — which is why this wide-neck look is also commonly referred to as a “boatneck.”

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.
