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.

For example Carol, owner of Christy’s Bridal, says she first asks her brides to check her website to see what featured styles they like. Carol’s brides-to-be supply her with a list of style numbers in advance of the trunk show appointment so her consultants can have those wedding gowns ready for the brides when they arrive. But, the preparation for the appointment does not stop there. Following are a few other items Carol recommends for brides to bring to their bridal trunk show appointment. Read more »
