Bridal Style Trend: Ivory Gorgeousness

Bridal Style Trend: Ivory Gorgeousness by Nina Renee Designs

There's a perfectly good reason why ivory has been a popular color choice in recent years: it's fabulous! Gone are the days of traditional thought that only 'pure' brides can wear white and vice versa. These days, it's all about being the most beautiful bride you can be while showcasing your unique style.

Ivory, in some instances can seem more elegant, while white may give off a girly and playful look (both being perfectly fab, of course!). But, ultimately, it's all in the details; how everything is pulled together to form your fabulous style.

{Beautiful from the Back} Bridal Style

Oh. my. goodness. I love this one! My personal fave in the bunch...

The uniqueness of this gown is awesome.

Just enough sexiness to keep this gown elegant and fabulous...

Design details like these remind me why Marchesa is one of my favorite designers. These girls do a stunning job of designing bridal gowns which are exceptionally gorgeous from the front and the back. So when the bride is gliding down the aisle, guests get a peek of her sassy style as she floats down towards her man...oh, just the though of this makes me happy! :)

{On Trend: Fabulous Prints} Bridesmaids' Style

{Fabulous Floral Print} Bridesmaids' Style by Nina Renee Designs

Can you envision your bridesmaids wearing a fabulous print? Absolutely. First of all, prints are very versatile...dress them up with crystal earrings, a lush sash and wedge sandals for the wedding...or, later down the road, dress it down for a lunch date with gold hoop earrings, flat sandals and a simple belt. A great option for your girls.

Another benefit is the awesome color inspiration which can be born from the dress. Often times the prints are colors you wouldn't think to put together (in this case: burgundy, ivory and yellow...who knew?!), but, would be fabulous for the wedding decor and theme. Awesome.
