Romona Keveza’s Spring 2017 Collection Is All About Feminine Florals

06 Oct 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Dresses
See every romantic look behind Romona Keveza’s floral-inspired collection, here.

Romona Keveza Spring 2017 wedding dresses

The Designer: Romona Keveza

The Details: Romona Keveza’s ultra-romantic design aesthetic left us speechless this season after seeing floral lace trains, gorgeous floral beading and appliqués and the prettiest illusion necklines.

The Looks: We were all about the Wedding Dresses with elegant floral details, like the three showstoppers with colorful lavender, blush and coral accents. Equally stunning are the strapless gowns with mini glittering flowers detailing the bodice and skirt—but minimalistic brides can’t ever go wrong with their sharp fit-and-flare silhouettes with a clean bodice and skirt.

06 Oct 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Dresses

Recently we heard from several of our readers that our Wedding Dress roundups didn’t have enough Wedding Dresses for older brides. We decided to remedy that with a post that is dedicated to Wedding Dresses for the older bride.

Whether you’re getting married for the first time or this is your second wedding, we hope our list of 13 wedding gowns for older brides has something for you.

Want to know what you can wear for your wedding if you are an older bride? Are there any Wedding Dress rules for older brides? The good news is that you can really do whatever you want. The bad news is that this doesn’t help you narrow down your choices.

At Team Wedding, we have one simple rule we recommend older brides follow when Wedding Dress shopping. Remember, if you are over 40, you are not a baby anymore, but at the same time you are not a dried-up old person who can’t look beautiful and amazing on your wedding day.

20 Art Deco Wedding Dress with Gatsby Glamour

30 Sep 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Dresses

So we’ve come to the last in this series of Art Deco themed Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons, and of course there could be no more fitting finale than looking at the piece de resistance of any wedding inspired by the Jazz Age – a Wedding Dress with pizazz! And with all things Art Deco still so popular, even 3 years after Baz Luhrman’s The Great Gatsby (the film that sparked this revival) was released, brides looking to channel their inner Daisy Buchanan are positively spoiled for choice when it comes to their dress! So here are just a few of my favourites…..

20 Art Deco Wedding Dresses with Gatsby Glamour

Perfectly embodying the opulence, glamour and razzmatazz of the 1920s and 1930s, these vintage inspired Wedding Dresses, by some of the most creative and very best bridal designers, are awash with elegant silhouettes and exquisite Art Deco detailing, from dropped waists and elaborate embellishments; to the more gracefully refined side of the Art Deco era captured in silk satin bias cuts and cowls draping. Whichever look you are going for, I am sure you will find a style you love for your day amongst these diverse and downright gorgeous gowns…..

Aren’t they all simply divine??? If you’re looking however for something a little more authentic, do go and see the lovely ladies over at Mill Crest Vintage – they have the biggest and most beautiful collection of authentic vintage wedding (and Bridesmaid!) dresses I have ever laid my eyes on. In fact I shared a few of my faves from their Art Deco collection a couple of weeks ago, which you can see hereif you missed it.

Well, I think that has pretty much exhausted Art Deco! After looking at the most perfect bridal hair accessories, decadent wedding invitations, delicious wedding cakes, fabulous Bridesmaid dresses, beautiful bouquets, dapper grooms, elegant hair & makeup, fabulous decor ideas and of course, today, Wedding Dresses, I can’t think of a single aspect of your day that we haven’t covered (do let me know if you can!), all together they should help you plan the perfect Art Deco wedding, a vision of Gatsby-esque glamour and a celebration than Jay himself would be honoured to host. Next week it is on to…… the 1950s!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone,

Heavenly Serenity Blue & Rose Quartz Wedding Inspiration

30 Sep 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Ideas

Following on from our look at stunning colours for a Fall wedding, today we continue the colour theme with the most beautiful inspiration shoot – because I couldn’t let 2016 disappear without one last nod to the prettiest palette of all! Pantone’s picks for colour of the year, Serenity & Rose Quartz. And this could be the loveliest take on the duo yet, with exquisite styling, lush florals and a beaded blue Wedding Dress to die for, it’s the perfect way to showcase just how romantic this palette is…..

Romantic Serenity & Rose Quartz Wedding Inspiration

I know when Pantone first announced this darling duo, I wasn’t convinced – I envisaged weddings looking more like a gender reveal. But today’s exquisite shoot shows how to keep this colour combination chic. Against the backdrop of the charming RiverOaks Charleston Wendy Kay of Birds Of A Feather Events styled a tablescape with relaxed grandeur, pairing coloured glass with ornate silverware and linens in soft shades of pink and blue.

Ash & Co. created a natural, radiant look with a soft side braid for our ethereal bride in her elaborately beaded blue bridal gown from Gossamer – talk about heavenly! An organic asymmetrical bouquet in the delicate starring shades by  The Southern Table completed the look with an air of pure romance.

The elegant calligraphy that adorned the light, watercolor and marble stationery from Southern Fried Paper, added olde world elegance and was the perfect finishing touch….. this is one of those shoots you are definitely going to want to have your pinning finger ready for!

The only thing that can make your favorite comfort food better is if it’s served from the window of a truck. Commissioning a food truck is perfect for trendy couples that are looking for an economical (and delicious!) way to feed their guests. Pizza, tacos, and ice cream are swoon worthy options for a relaxed outdoor soiree, or jazz it up for a fancier ordeal with a lobster truck and fish and chips!

2. Gatsby theme

You’ve found the Gatsby to your Daisy, so showcase your love with a Roaring 20s themed meal! Serve “moonshine” in mason jars, shrimp cocktail appetizers, and pineapple upside down cake for dessert. Tea sandwiches and champagne cocktails are also a must to create an era-friendly menu!

3. Carnival food

Cracker Jacks, funnel cakes, cotton candy—the whole shebang! Serve all of the go-to carnival necessities, but dressed up for your formal affair.

4. After dance snack

Between tearing up the dance floor and sipping on your specialty cocktails, your guests will be aching for a late night snack. Satisfy their munchies—and give them strength to keep dancing!—with mini donuts and coffee, grilled cheese dippers with tomato soup, cookie and milk shots, or a pizza bar!

5. Theme

Get creative with your menu by choosing a theme to work around. Maybe an ode to bread, chocolate, salt, or bacon! Pick your favorite foods and curate a menu using different variations of those ingredients.

6. A new take on cocktails

Raise a glass to a decked out signature cocktail! Curate a Bloody Mary bar with all of your favorite fixins or create a beer flight representative of your time as a couple! Have a killer IPA while skiing in Colorado? Maybe a summer shandy on the lake on your first date? Put it on the list! If you’re going the signature drink route, we recommend a tangy libation for a summer soiree, or a cozy hot toddy for a winter wedding. Cheers!

Did someone say breakfast for dinner? That’s something we can always get on board with! Flaunt your love for bacon and waffles by serving breakfast at your reception. To avoid it looking like a local pancake feed, jazz it up by serving skewered waffles with sausages alongside of a maple syrup shot. Yum!

8. Brunch

You can never have enough breakfast food! Opt for a mid-morning ceremony and serve your guests a fantastic brunch complete with sparkling mimosas, Bloody Marys, pastries, and a yogurt parfait bar!

9. Unique to you!

Show your guests a slice of who you are by serving items that are unique to you! Can’t get enough cereal? Try a cereal bar with all of your favorite grains. French fry aficionado? Dish up your favorite spuds!

10. Mini-everything

Everything—and we mean everything—is cuter in miniature form. Serve up shooters for the appetizer, main course, and dessert! Options abound for this fabulous route. Try feta salad shooters alongside of miniature shrimp cocktails for an appetizer, small sandwiches and soup shots for your main course, and chocolate mouse and raspberry macaroons for dessert!

11. Food stations: the best of both worlds

Can’t decide between serving Indian cuisine or BBQ pulled pork sliders? We’re here to give you permission to have both! Meal stations bring together the best of both worlds by enabling you to have as many cuisine variations as you like! Drink stations will also set you apart while keeping your guests quenched and satisfied. Mimosa bar? Hot chocolate station? Count us in!

12. DIY station

Kids can’t have all of the fun! Create an adult Do It Yourself food station to unleash your attendees’ creative sides. We love the idea of a colorful snow cone station or a fireside s’mores bar!

13. Edible Wedding favors

Who says the party has to end after the wedding is over? Send your guests home with your favorite yummy treats. Macaroons, homemade honey, and truffles are both easy to transport and delicious!

14. Wedding Cake Stand-ins

Maybe you don’t love cake…or maybe you just love something else way more! There are tons of alternative cake options out there to satisfy your sweet tooth. Donut towers, cupcakes, and cheese wheel cakes (yes, we said cheese!) are some of the latest trendy desserts—our mouths are watering just thinking about it! For something more outside of the box, try something representative of your culture. Norweigian? Ask your Scandinavian grandma to bake you a traditional Kransekaka. Or serve a croquembouche and macaroons for your French wedding celebration!

15. Lose the Fork

Finger food isn’t just for kids anymore! Eliminate the need for silverware with skewers ranging from fun to elegant. From fruit to salmon to mini pizzas—we think that anything can be served on a stick!

16. Pre-game cocktails

Because why not? Serve up your favorite cocktails and champagne before the ceremony so your guests can sip away as you say “I do.” We can raise a glass to that!

18. Get Crafty

Perfect for the hops aficionado: showcase your brewing skills by serving your homemade brews and libations! Economical and unique, handcrafted beer is just the personal touch you’re looking for.

19. Edible escort cards

Don’t wait to start the party! Send your guests to their tables with a one-of-a-kind treat—edible escort cards!

20. Curated food and drink pairings

The only thing that could make those handcrafted sliders even better is a perfectly paired ale! Curate your favorite foods with a corresponding drink for an extra-special flair. Try fish tacos alongside of margaritas for a casual outdoor affair, or spice it up for a formal gathering with vodka and caviar.

As you can see, the options are truly endless for planning a unique wedding day menu that will impress your guests and leave them talking about your celebration for weeks to come.
