The Cutest Wedding Flats We’ve Seen!

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!

Blush, Coral & Gold Hill Country Wedding at The Terrace Club

Houston bride Vanessa and her groom, Luis, dreamed of a sunset wedding in Texas Hill Country, and just knew The Terrace Club would be the perfect location. “Our wedding day was a dream come true for us and our family,” says the bride. “We were so detailed in every aspect because we wanted it to be special, and The Terrace Club understood our vision.” Their Hill Country wedding was decidedly glam, complete with gold glitter accents, wine barrels topped with gold candelabras, and string lights leading out from the altar.

Vanessa tells us that one of her favorite details about the outdoor ceremony decor were the blankets given as favors for the guests.

“My most memorable moment was when we snuck off in the middle of the reception to take some pictures outside. Luis twirled me like a princess in my dress…it was like a scene straight from a fairytale,” Vanessa recounts.

Fuchsia, Lavender & Peach Wedding at The Gallery

Rachel and Zach were married on her parent’s anniversary at The Gallery, so they incorporated different elements that gave little nods to that blessed event, and to her Louisiana roots. “I wore my mom’s veil, and Café Natalie created a menu that was full of Cajun cuisine with crab-stuffed mushrooms and blackened Cajun fish with dirty rice,” she adds.

“I wanted our wedding to feel soft, intimate, slightly vintage and romantic,” says the bride, pointing to elements including lace, mercury glass, candles and soft spring colors like fuchsia, lavender and peach.

“Some of my favorite moments were making eye contact with my teary-eyed groom at the end of the aisle, our first dance, toasting to my parent’s 34th anniversary and dancing to Pharrell’s song ‘Happy,’” says Rachel.

Spring 2018 Bridal Fashion Trend: Refined & Regal

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.
