The Cutest Wedding Flats We’ve Seen!

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Let’s be honest—as much as we love and dream of super high heels for weddings, they’re not always as comfortable as we’d like them to be. That’s why our gals picked out wedding flats and one super adorable pair of low-heeled pumps that are great for both comfort and style. Shop through our faves below, and get ready to dance the night away!

1.  These ivory satin Jimmy Choo flats are great for the bride who loves a sleek, chic look with a hint of bling peeking out from beneath her wedding gown.

2. Get ready to dazzle in Badgley Mischka’s showstopping “Gigi” bridal flat, featuring sparkling crystals and delicately scalloped edging. P.S. They’re available in ivory and a blushy-taupe shade that’s great for bridesmaids, too!

Spring 2018 Bridal Fashion Trend: Refined & Regal

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

Regal-Wedding-Dress

The Spring 2018 collections revealed at New York’s recent Bridal Fashion Week taught us a valuable lesson—refined and regal is always in. Big ballgowns, detachable skirts, romantic veils and dramatic crowns have made a comeback, and we’re all for it. We are loving this trend so much, we put together a complete bridal look to give you some inspo before you shop for your wedding dress at local Houston bridal salons. Love the trend? Check out the deets below on where to buy these looks. Happy shopping, xo!

1. Sigh. Elie Saab’s Spring 2018 collection reminds us why we’ve always loved ballgowns. Who doesn’t want to feel like a princess, especially on her wedding day? For maximum versatility, try a ballgown with a detachable skirt—an awesome option for brides who want to let loose and dance the night away without having their gown get in the way.

2. We had a chance to get our hands on this Maria Elena crown at Joan Pillow Bridal Salon’s trunk show last week…and OMG, it’s a stunner. We recommend pairing it with a romantic, braided up-do or sleek, pulled-back look (life hack: remember to always channel your inner #queen).

3. The Hazeline Suite is dear to ring designer Anna Sheffield, who created it in homage to her own grandmother’s ring, and we’re pretty sure that any bride who chooses it will end up turning it into a cherished heirloom of her own. The champagne-colored diamond with white diamond accents makes for a timeless, vintage look we absolutely love.

4. Alexander McQueen is the king of the clutch game. We particularly love the combination of soft lace with edgy gold and silver accents. Oh, and the knuckle clasp? It’s like a crown for your hand!

5. Imagine these Aquazurra Crystal-Embellished Sandals peeking out from beneath your beautiful ballgown. They’re just the perfect shade of blush, with  just the right amount of crystal bling to complete your bridal look, as they catch the light everywhere you turn. Sparkle on, sister…sparkle on.

Blush, Cream & Marsala Rustic Fall Wedding

Monday, May 8th, 2017

Taylor noticed Cody at a get-together in College Station and decided to approach him with a witty one-liner. “I asked him if he lived in Cypress, and he said, ‘Yes,’” says Taylor. Inspired by her favorite actor, Will Ferrell, she replied, “Did we just become best friends?!” Her sense of humor worked on Cody, and they have been inseparable since!

Cody knew the perfect moment to propose to Taylor was on a family vacay for the Fourth of July. They went to the Hyatt Hotel in San Antonio to watch the fireworks show. The scenery was perfect, “We all sat on a big blanket while eating s’mores. After a couple minutes after the show started, Cody asked me to stand up,” says Taylor. Her initial response was, “No! Are you crazy? I’m watching the fireworks!” But his persistence paid off and before Taylor knew it, he was on one knee asking her to spend the rest of their lives together. Aww!

After a sweet summer proposal came their romantic fall wedding. She wore a full-sleeved Hayley Paige gown from Now & Forever Bridal Boutique, and held a gorgeous marsala, blush and ivory bridal bouquet by Blooms Design Studio while she said her “I do’s.”

“Everything was magical. The whole place was filled with candlelight and lanterns. I wanted to mix one bold color with a neutral palette, so marsala was the perfect pop of color to complete my fall wedding vision,” says Taylor.

Her favorite moment was kissing Cody under the fireworks. “It was such a magical night,” says Taylor.
