HWB Adores: Jewel-Heeled Wedding Shoes

Monday, August 29th, 2011

We all know how ya’ll love your bling. And we’re right there with you, Houston brides. But here’s the thing: Sometimes just a touch of sparkle, in the exact right spot, delivers more dazzle than a truckload of diamonds.

Though we’d let that truck park in our driveway any ol’ day. Just sayin’.

Today’s object of our affection: jewel-heeled shoes. Because they’re so darn pretty. Because they were made for celebrating. Because they’re exactly what the well-heeled bride needs to complete her perfect wedding-day ensemble.

A lovely lace, silk or paper umbrella or parasol is the perfect accessory for any outdoor nuptial celebration, blue sky or gray. Plus, they make great bridesmaid gifts and look SO amazing in photos. Get ready to twirl, girl.

Inspiration Board: Retro Hollywood Glamour

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

It’s no mystery why style-minded brides turn again and again to Hollywood of the 40s, 50s and early 60s for wedding inspiration. Heyday Hollywood will forever be a time and place simply brimming with high-drama glamour and mystique. Hear the words “Old Hollywood” and your mind fills with iconic visions: va-voom mermaid gowns and Veronica Lake waves, twinkling chandeliers and tinkling grand piano keys, potted palms and tuxedo-clad waiters tipping Champagne into diminutive glasses, diamonds, diamonds and more diamonds. There’s no need to go into theme territory with your vintage Hollywood wedding design (unless, of course, that’s your kinda thing). Feel free to take cues from golden-era Hollywood rather than scouring thrift and prop shops for the actual thing. Instant glamour. Timeless allure. See credits below pix for details!
