Short Hairstyles for Mod Brides

We’re all pretty stylin’ babes, are we not? Scrolling through our Pinterest and Instagram feeds, we can pick out the fabulous fashion trends we know are the best. Sometimes it’s fun just to look and be reassured that our personal styles are indeed pretty bangin’. But what happens when there are no pictures of pretty brides donning the looks that we love (and need)? Is it just me, or is it a little disheartening to see a lack of women reflecting dresses, makeup, and haircuts we hope to wear on our big day.

One thing there needs to be more of is The Short Haircut. I’m biased, I know, I have a short haircut. But where are all the cute pixie cuts, undercuts, and curly tops I know are out there? Here are a few insanely cute short hairstyles for the wedding day that we love:

The fun part about short hair is that the styles reach across the spectrum! From elegant and traditional to unique and fun, there is a look for everyone. We hope these fashionable ‘dos are as inspiring to you as they are to me! For more incredible inspiration for your big day, check out our Pinterest pages!

Spring 2015 Wedding Dress Trends With A Pantone Twist

We. Love. Pantone. We love Pantone so much we might as well scrawl its name on composition notebooks and have framed pictures of our favorite color schemes sitting on our bedside tables. Long walks on the beach with Pantone. Romantic candlelit dinners.

Okay, so we’ve made our point. Pantone rules, and we’re excited about the 2014-2015 colors and style themes that we’re seeing appear all over. Bridal shows and wedding colors for tablescapes, aisles, and signature cocktail recipes are delighting us to no end. But above all, we are loving the wedding dresses for Spring 2015. The hues, details, and fabrics used for these mouth-watering styles are must haves for your big day. Here are our favorite looks:

Modern chic has made this look popular and who can deny that this is a great look for the wedding. The two-piece bridal gown is a way to truly show off your personal style. A combination of contemporary fashion and vintage style has us begging for more!

Pantone rules and so do these looks! Try a Strawberry Ice dress, a Treetop veil, or a Lavender ombre skirt for the big day.

Lace, always a favorite of ours. But this classic look gets better! Long sleeved lace wedding dresses are all the rage, and the mix of modest and peekaboo, innocent and seductive, makes this a must-have style for the ceremony.

“Reach out and touch someone,” is exactly what your guests will want to do when you wear the textured bridal gown of your dreams. Whether beaded, fringed, or detailed with delicate floral pieces, your outfit will be a show-stopper.

We can’t stop talking about capes! Whether your bridal cape is the main feature of your outfit of serves to play a small part in your look, you don’t want to pass off the opportunity to finally wear that Little Red Riding Hood outfit you always loved.

Be fearless and go strapless! Long gone are the days when strapless meant bare and boring. This is your chance to play with jewelry options, like decadent necklaces. Make your veil a prominent feature or don a flower crown to balance out your look. And don’t forget to have fun with your hair style!

Did we bite off more than we can chew? Absolutely not! These fashion statements are here to stay and we can’t say enough about how gorgeous all brides will look in these inspirational shapes and colors. Which looks will you combine for your big day? For more ideas, visit our Pinterest page and peruse over 100 style boards we’ve created just for you!

A Walk Down The Aisle At Your Same Sex Wedding

Modern weddings are in need of new traditions. Same sex weddings present perfect opportunities for contemporary brides and grooms to personalize their ceremonies. A wedding should reflect a couple’s personality and how they incorporate their friends and families into the big day.

While you and your beau organize the ceremony details, there are a few moments that might leave you wondering. While every couple struggles with vows, ring bearers, and devotional rituals (such as unity candles, hand fasting, or the breaking of the glass), the question arises of who will walk who down the aisle.

Traditionally, the bride is walked down the aisle and presented to the groom who is waiting for her at the altar. If there are two brides, will they both be escorted by their fathers to the officiant? Will the grooms be escorted at all? We have some helpful suggestions for you to help you on your way:

Are you sentimental? We are! Have your parent walk you to the alter. A few moments to meditate, squeeze your mom or dad’s hand, and spend your last moments as the little boy or girl that you are will prepare you for those moments you’ll never forget. Both you and your beau can be escorted by a parent to the alter. It is a meaningful time to reflect. Don’t forget, you can have a close friend walk you down the aisle, too.

Maybe one of you has a little stage fright. This might be a perfect moment to divert attention from yourself to the man or woman of your dreams. Wait at the altar for your fiance to walk to you. All eyes will be on the aisle while you take a breather.

The most popular take on the aisle walk is to enter together. Give yourselves away. You are joining in a bond more powerful than anything you’ve experienced before, so be there for each other from the start. Whether you are a pair of grooms or brides, spend your last moments before the vows together and surrounded by the ones you love.

If you want the whole family together, get those special ones to join you. Your dog, cat, or pair of pot belly pigs will be there to share your big moment. Don’t be afraid to be you!

All we wish for you is a painless, stress-free few months of planning and an incredible night of dancing, celebrating, and exclaiming your happiness. Whatever kind of wedding you end up having, make it your day. Congratulations and good luck!
