Cool Trend: The Couple Silhouette

3.04.2010 | |

I really like the framed couple silhouette trend. Couples are having silhouettes made in bold colors and framed as a keepsake for their home. If you know their style, this could also be a kitschy gift to give the newlyweds. Etsy has a lot of shops that create couple silhouettes. Some of my favorites are below.

Spring 2010 Wedding Gowns

The fashion profile for Spring 2010 wedding gowns is long and romantic and short and sassy. We are seeing full skirts with bunched and draped tulle, classic A-Line dresses accented with oversized bows and "little white dresses" with asymetrical hems. The Roaring 20s have popped into the fashion forefront as Bibi style veils have made a strong comeback. Some of my favorites from Spring 2010 are shown below.

Notebook Excerpts...

2.28.2010 | |

My college roommate Jen is in the beginning stages of planning her fall wedding. She likes the color of topaz (her birthstone) for one of her wedding colors. When she told me that, I said it would look great with grey. She mentioned purple. Shes having 2 bridesmaids and so I thought it'd be a good look to put them in different color and style dresses. I browsed around to see what I could find and came up with the dresses below in the colors we talked about. They're all from J. Crew Weddings.

If Jen goes with this look and color scheme, I would definitely recommend this gray Calvin Klein tuxedo for the groom and his groomsmen, which is also the tux of Dante.

I have a knack for picking out wedding songs. From the most obvious to the lesser known, I can definitely spot "first dance" material. Here are some in rotation on my playlist.

And for a fun first dance that could include the entire wedding party:
