A few of our favorite different looks from Bridal week paired up with the perfect bouquets!
This "backless lace trumpet wedding dress with a deep v-neckline and attached jewel-neck cape", is a modern yet almost boho look we loved! Paired with our deep cranberry toned garden-style slight cascade bouquet.
These two Maggie Sottero pieces are perfect with our more rounded bouquets. The classic ballgown with gorgeous corset beading would be perfect with a more traditional all-garden rose bouquet, perhaps in a blush and pink palette. The fitted sweetheart below- we loved the embroidered detail that creates a magnificent frame for a detailed bouquet- with a splash of color and some dusty exotic blooms and foliage.
This alternative statement piece is perfect for the elegant off-beat bride. Paired with our gothic-esque anemone bouquet with deep red callas and black accents.
The "Cornelia" strapless tulle trumpet wedding dress with a floral embroidered bodice and sweetheart neckline we matched up with a traditional style filled with all white callas and orchids. Cascades with this style make for the ultimate wow-factor- mimicking and matching the flowing trumpet tulle bottom.
Ines De Santo
The "Annabelle" lace A-line wedding dress with an illusion high neckline, beaded details, and an embellished tulle overskirt goes perfectly with our deluxe garden style bouquet- filled with delicate detail and large open roses and garden roses for the perfect romantic and loose flowing feel.
The Baltimore Belle
Named after a best seller- Hannah Hawkins or the Reformed Drunkard's Daughter, this rose was bred by Samuel Feast, a friend to abstinence during the 1800's. Planted as an expression of devotion to the abstinence practice during a time where the Washingtonian Total Abstinence Society was the most powerful temperance organization in the U.S.
This pale-to- pink fluffy rose is definitely a BEAUT!
Anxiously awaiting Bridal Week in NYC this weekend, we've been getting our fashion fix from the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week: Australia! Oogle-ing and Ahh-ing over these ridiculously creative pieces by incredible talent. Here were some of the shows that caught our attention...
A chic twist on the Great Gatsby- this vintage glam show even included some bridal inspired pieces! Favorite Looks: Grey beaded fringe dress with mod bowler hat, and metallic gown. Not to mention the fantastic red lips!
St. George New Generation show
With a vast array of different designers, this show featured an eclectic mix of not just funky and unique but even day to day wearable pieces.
Gorgeous black silhouette pieces to graphic printed urban inspired dresses - and even some funky head art that as an art major- I of course couldn't get enough of.
Creative kudos all around - LOVE IT
Favorite Looks: Black silver embroidered mini dress,
and black cut-out pantsuit with the perfect set of black strappy heels
Talk about crazy- this show caught our eye at first with the floral backdrop- but the clothes were absolutely the eye catcher of this show. With a gorgeous selection of fabrics, and the coolest & most creative hair-face-art combo we've never seen before,
we got the ultimate girly satin floral bedtime vibes.
Not sure we'd ever step foot out the house in these crazy creations, but they're fun to look at.
Sleek, sexy, simple and chic. With a stunning hanging display runway of LED neon, this show was one to watch. Clean cut silhouettes, and amazing fabric prints in a mix of simple and bright colors. Favorite Look: Dusty blue fringe dress with a metallic woven accent underlay
Galanni takes royal to a WHOLE new level. I'd die to have one of these drool-worthy gowns in my own closet! Some of the most intricate detail, as well as unique eye-catching fabrics. We couldn't pick a favorite- we loved them ALL.
Another set of gown pieces we'd love to strut ourselves, Steven Khalil also had some bridal inspo, including a surprisingly simple yet elegant statement bridal gown.
Favorite Look: Sheer floral sheath gown
Bold. Clean. Mod. & Floral. All working together beautifully. Renown Maticevski set the scene with a stunning bold white geometric backdrop that featured each one of his pieces beautifully. Much lighter and softer palettes with accents of strong gold. As seen in his "Orchids Metamorphosis" last year, he incorporated orchids again with small crystal balls carried by the models.
Swarovski Winter Gardens Lunch
Now although this wasn't a runway, you bet it caught our eye and we are too in love not to share. Swarovski, celebrating their 120th year, set a jewel toned winter glam luncheon table featured on MBFWA. Loaded with statement pieces and beautiful blooms....we'll let it speak for itself....
Be sure to check out more on the MBFW official site!
This past weekend we ventured up to the Big Apple to visit one of the most beautiful greenhouse shows we've ever been to! The New York Botanical Gardens hosted an absolutely breathtaking orchid show filled with eye catching exotic blooms arranged in the most creative ways.
We wanted to share some of our favorite shots ...
^The LARGEST orchid chandelier
^These little guys looked like they belonged in a nightclub!
We even made a little friend along the way!
This cutie couldn't stop snapping shots everywhere she looked- little florist in training perhaps?
We then decided to explore Macy's at Herald Square with their infamous "Art in Bloom" flower displays- and they did NOT disappoint! We got there just in time before they broke down the window designs and even got to chat with the incredibly talented company that designed them!
Let's just say... these displays were RIGHT up our ally ....
