Happy Fashion Friday, MHW readers!!
Ladies, can we talk about the fellas for a moment?
We feature a whole lot of gorgeous wedding gowns, bridal bouquets, and exquisite jewelry, but let’s get real – there are going to be two of you in most of those pictures, and you want to make sure your groom looks devastatingly handsome. I promise you, he wants to look his best, too! (Haven’t you caught him glancing in the mirror a bit more since your engagement…?)
Introduce him – pronto – to Black by Vera Wang, a collection of modern tuxedos in lightweight fabrics, perfectly suited for spring-into-summer weddings. These on-trend yet classic tuxes are cut to fit slim and sleek, taking out the bulk of more traditional heavy-weight tuxes. Take a look!
Black Super 130′s Two-Button Notch Lapel Tuxedo with grosgrain lapel coat and flat front pants with grosgrain stripe:
A sultry stare and that lovely dusting of facial hair doesn’t hurt either…
Sorry, lost my focus there for a moment. The tuxes come in black and grey, and rent exclusively from Men’s Wearhouse. Here’s to the handsomest groom in the world – YOURS!
Happy Friday, MHW readers! I have a quiz for you.
When you think of “Princess Bride”, what comes to mind:
a. The classic comedy romance film of 1989
b. A tragic Grimm’s Fairy Tale heroine
c. Any daughter of a Real Housewife of Orange County, New Jersey, or Atlanta
d. Ariel, Tiana, Jasmine, Aurora, Belle, S. White, and Cinderella
If you selected ANY of the above, you are going to love today’s post! It doesn’t matter what you associate with the word “Princess”, because Disney and Alfred Angelo have teamed together to create three collections of gowns based on classic Disney princesses to suit any taste. From slinky and streamlined to hoop skirts and ruffles, wish-upon-a-star wedding dress dreams are about to come true.
The “Snow White”:
Gorgeous, right? And not a puffed sleeve in sight:
Sorry, Ariel. That dress is so 1990.
What do you think? Would you wear a gown styled after a Disney Princess? Let us know in the comments section!
Happy Friday, MHW readers! We hope you’ve all had an amazing week.
Today, we’re transporting ourselves into the whimsical world of Claire Pettibone. As a child growing up in the rural wilderness of New York, Claire spent much of her time dreaming up magical worlds. Now, as a couture bridal designer, she uses her fairytale inspiration to create magical gowns for modern brides. We love that her elegantly detailed gowns exude all the grace of a princess without feeling too gaudy.
We picked out a few gowns from Claire Pettibone’s An Earthly Paradise collection to share with you today. This line is garden nymph meets Greek goddess (AKA perfect for the spring and summer!). The lacey intricacies, delicate sheer backs, and statuesque framing of these gowns are to die for. Plus, we love the gorgeous indigo/peach flower crowns and barefoot models! Perfect details for an outdoor or seaside wedding.
Look at how the white lace details pop out against the cream gown. So amazing.
The Helena dress is a gorgeous warm-weather take on the long-sleeved dress. These sheer sleeves are so stunning and perfectly accentuated by the floral cuffs!
Thalia is very Shakespearean princess. How amazing is this flower crown and necklace?! Could be a DIY project in the works…
Love these ribbon streamers on the Aphrodite dress. Claire Pettibone does such an amazing job of making simple silhouetted dresses into intricate works of art.
Until next Friday!
Happy Friday, MHW readers!
Today’s Fashion Friday post takes us back in time to the 1920’s. Now that the Great Gatsby movie premiere is less than a month away (yay!), we felt it was only appropriate to cover a few Daisy Buchanan-inspired bridal styles. This 20’s look is all about drop waists, beaded details, and headpieces.
Now I know what you’re thinking. Beading + vintage style = expensive. Well, think again!
Today’s looks from David’s Bridal are not only elegant but also affordable.
We’re swooning over this lacey, drop waist dress. Pair with a chic fascinator and this gorgeous beaded, snap-top clutch and your Gatsby will be head over heels for you!
This dress gets even better from the back! The button-up seam adds vintage-y elegance while the sheer lace top makes the dress modern chic.
We love that this satin gown incorporates 20’s-inspired drapery while accentuating the model’s curves.
Another drop waist lace gown. The beaded details and layering are to die for!
Happy Friday MHW Readers! It’s finally here!
For today’s post, we thought we’d continue our European tour to London.
Every girl wants to live in their own palace.
The love story we all wished we had, marrying a Prince! Well at least Prince Harry hasn’t tied the knot yet, we still have a chance.
If Paris didn’t have you packing up to elope to Europe, maybe London will. We’ve always thought of London as a destination filled with romance, iconic locations, royalty and beauty. Who wouldn’t feel like a princess being married in London.
Destination London was inspired by Nottinghampshire born designer Phillipa Lepley who studied fashion at the renowned London College of Fashion. She has been making brides wedding day dreams come true for over 20 years. Perhaps she will make yours come to reality as well. Phillipa’s design definitely inspire the innocent British bride within us.
Now, take a break from the spreadsheets and phone calls to peak at this beautiful collection below.
It’s all about being feminine and showing a women’s silhouette and hour glass curves that draws us to Phillipa Lepley’s wedding dresses.
We adore the functionality of pockets in wedding dresses. A place to stash your lip gloss for an easy refresh all night long. Cap sleeves! No way you’re losing your dress or having to tug it up all night when you’re getting your grove on.
The lace and bodice of this dress hug a girl’s curves in all the right places.
