Featured on Style Me Pretty!

Jody and Alain’s sweet garden wedding in St. Augustine was featured on Style Me Pretty! Jody wore a bohemian custom-sleeved Theia gown that went perfectly with the easygoing and rustic vibe of this spectacular wedding. We are so grateful we were able to be a part of the big day for this very special couple! You need to read this sweet story of how Jody and Alain planned their wedding, and the unique details they added to fit their personalities!

Trend Alert – Bridal Fashion Week Recap!

Our 5 favorite trends from Bridal Fashion Week 2015
1. Off-the-Shoulder Necklines
So romantic and classic! This look is soft and graceful.

 
2. Overskirts
The possibilities are endless! Use an overskirt during the ceremony and take it off for the reception to give a different look. Or just add a whole new dimension to the gown!

3. 30s Glam
No poof, go for sheath!

4. Color!
Still soft and bridal, but creamy and smooth. Perfect if you still want to look bridal, but don’t envision yourself in white!

5. Sheer Sleeves and Illusion
These gowns show a plunging neckline or a peek of the leg. Nothing TOO crazy, but definitely eye-catching.

Wedding Dress Lingo 101

Let’s be honest, finding a dress can be really overwhelming. So what on earth do you tell your stylist when you’re looking for your dream dress? “Um, I would like a pretty white dress?” Well, we have TONS of those! Maybe you don’t feel like you understand bridal “lingo” but you really don’t need to. It’s SUPER helpful when you tell your stylist what you like (and don’t like!) so that you can narrow down your options. Your stylist will probably always make you try on a curve ball, and a veil (at least if you’re visiting us…) but the key to success is trusting your stylist AND being on the same page. Based on previous shopping, Pinterest and your own personal style, here are 10 key words that will hopefully guide you to success!

1. Poofy – a not-so-medical term that describes the outward “poof” of the dress. Whether it’s a mermaid or ball gown, poof is a helpful term.

2. Sheath – a straight cut, close to the body option.

3. Fitted – fitted how? Through the waist? The hips? Just your top? Think about what you want to accentuate!

4. Mermaid – usually describes that is fitted through the hips and to the knees (or calves). Great for showing off those curves!

5. Trumpet – basically the same thing as mermaid, it just flares out higher up towards your mid-thigh.

6. Disney Princess – a very technical term that translates into GIANT BALLGOWN!

7. Lace, tulle, satin – if you have a favorite fabric, it may help you eliminate some options.

8. Bling! Such a fun word. If you like sparkle, tell your stylist! You could even have lace AND bling…ohhhh the possibilites!

9. Open back – open-back gowns are all the rage, and with good reason.

10. Cap sleeves/sleeveless/strapless/etc – sleeves […]

Industrial Modern Photo Shoot!

Chic, geometric, edgy- this shoot is clearly for the fashionistas of the world. Our seamstress created a custom veil that’s pretty hard not to notice. This sleek and sophisticated Nicole Miller gown is accentuated by the black and cranberry accents in the flowers, veil and cake. Little details like a bold cake design or geometric envelopes are going to be what really make your wedding upscale and modern!

Malindy Moments Part 4: Vendors We Love!

People are always asking who we recommend for wedding vendors! We only work with a select few vendors, so this is NOT an extensive list, or saying that we don’t like others :). We have had many “Malindy Moments” with these vendors and work with them on a regular basis!

Geometric + Romance Photo Shoot

Geometric shapes, plus romance. Sounds like an interesting mix, but really this shoot shows how you can soften geometric shapes with romantic accents and details. The intricately beaded gown and headband by Badgley Mischka are accented with a feminine bouquet full of pinks and greenery. A little glitter is never a bad idea – it only adds to the gold, white and pink geometric accents – the perfect mix!
