The white wedding gown will always be a classic choice, but Spring 2013 Bridal Market saw some daring departures from this tradition. From accents of black to subtle pastels to fire-engine red (yes, RED), many designers produced gorgeous fashions for the technicolor bride, particularly Vera Wang with her collection of fiery wedding dresses.

It has been approximately 5 months since I’ve went all natural, i.e., grew out my relaxer. Working with my natural texture has been great so far, with only minor challenges. However,a major challenge for natural-haired brides is finding hairstyles for their big day. Thankfully, Offbeat Bride has contributed to the solution by writing a post featuring natural-haired brides rocking gorgeous wedding hairstyles. Thanks Ariel!

I must give a round of applause to Romona Keveza for including an elegant black wedding gown that is meant to be taken seriously. Although the rest of her collection features classic white dresses, all of them employ gorgeous elements such as architectural pleating and three-dimensional accents, making for a gorgeous new collection overall.

Yes, this is the umpteenth times I’ve posted and inspiration board for my future nuptials (if, of course, they indeed do happen). I can’t promise that this will be the last one, but I can promise that it’s fabulous. Enjoy!

After seeing a black and white photograph of a lovely bride with her hair done in the famous Breakfast at Tiffany’s style (complete with miniature tiara), I just took the concept of vintage chic and ran. Enjoy!

June is seen as the kickoff month for wedding season. In light if this, I give you an inspiration board which centers on a favorite concept-the garden wedding. I took the color green-which has become very popular in wedding decor- into consideration while compiling the photos, and made sure that touches of white, cream, chocolate brown, and black played supporting roles. Enjoy!

For those who read my blog regularly, it does seem a bit strange that I’m covering this topic again since it was already dealt with in my very first post. But, as of late my style has changed and I have narrowed down my likes, loves, and dislikes in terms of decor and personal tastes. In all honesty, I would rather a much more elegant, cohesive look to my big day (whenever that happens). I’ve kept some elements, such as black, white, and purple being my favorite hues, but new elements such as an overall retro flair that I am smitten by has been introduced in place of the more beachy vibe I had going before. I feel that this new inspiration board is an updated, more refined version of me. Perhaps this too can serve to help you as well. Enjoy!

Ah, l’amour! The City of Lights tends to be a widely used inspiration when it comes to weddings. Perhaps the intimate elegance of a sidewalk bistro is what you’re aiming for in your wedding decor-or is it the high glamour, couture opulence that Paris offers in their fashions and art galleries. The following board is made to cater to both aspects of Parisian flair and I hope this sends you on your way to creating a trés chic affair. Voilá!
