Pearl & Lace

There are certain things that are so pretty, like pearls and lace. Whether together or separate, pearls and lace have much in common: they’re romantic, classic, and are natural choices for wedding apparel, decor and as embellishments on confections. Each can exude a decidedly vintage look, as well. Some of our favorites include the pearl-bow Valentino pumps, lace-wrapped bouquets and gowns from various designers below. Enjoy.     Credits: 1 Valentino shoes via *** 2 Ines Di Santo dress 3 Image by Ned Jackson Photography via *** 4 Love Life Studios 5 Ines Di Santo dress 6 Magpies Cakes 7 Valentino shoes via ***. 8 Earrings by Maria Elena Headpieces 9 Image by Sarah Kate, Photographer via *** 10 Valentino bag 11 Ines Di Santo dress 12 Image by Carla Ten Eyck via *** 13 Linens from Event Party Rentals via *** 14 Via Style Me Pretty. 15 La Sposa […]

Wrapped Up in Tulle

Words that tulle brings to mind: sweet, heavenly, feminine. Tulle is a lightweight, fine netting that got its name from a city in southern France. As much for fashion fantasy as it is for practical accents, tulle naturally has a special place in the wedding world. We spied it heavily on the runways for the Spring 2012 collections, layered on ball gowns at Ines Di Santo and Lazaro and wrapped so effortlessly around the arms of models at Kenneth Pool and Rivini. And tulle isn’t limited to apparel. To linens it aids to create a sweet and texturized element. Placed overhead at a reception or dinner party it adds volume at an affordable cost, and to accessories it alludes to a certain playfulness. Tulle a little too perfect for you? No such thing; bunched or gathered tulle can help take away some of that perfection.     1 ball gown […]

Ballet and the Bride

When ballet and weddings collide the outcome is feminine and flowing dresses, wisps of light-as-air tulle, whisper pink or champagne flowers, cake and decor, and soft, feminine details all around. The images below conjure up thoughts of femininity, beauty and even love, all characteristics that the ballet and a wedding may share. What’s sweeter than a ballerina bride? And what sweet inspiration we have to share! ♥ Your Lovella Bridal Team 1 & 2 Yan Photography / 3 Via Martha Stewart Weddings / 4 Yan Photography / 5 The Barbers / 6 Patricia Kantzos via Style Me Pretty   7 Widdis Photography via Style Me Pretty / 8 & 9 Yan Photography 10 Gown by Ines Di Santo / 11 Yan Photography   12-15 Images used with permission from WedLuxe Magazine / 16 Ines Di Santo gown via Modern Luxury / 17 Ball gown by Lazaro / 18 Gown by Edgardo Bonilla / 19 Gown by Kenneth Pool
