The Pin Page: Fall Wedding Inspiration

Fall is in full swing, and we're completely obsessed with the fall wedding inspiration we've seen lately. From Brittany's rustic Colorado wedding to Wynta's gorgeous country farm wedding in Australia, our heads are spinning with all of this fall wedding inspiration! There's something about pumpkin, amber, and moody shades of purple that we can't get enough of. Gorgeous burgundy bouquets, filled with black dahlias, maroon carnations and springs of cotton caught our eye this season, while rustic bouquets of dried grass, wheat stalks and dusty foliage transition well to winter weddings. This month, you loved some of our most glamorous wedding dresses. Viera, a stunning strapless wedding dress sprinkled with Swarovski crystals, and Brandy, a glamorous sheath dress, glittering with crystals along the back. Craving more fall wedding inspiration?

Maggie Memo #5: Tips for Wedding Dress Shopping

You said “Yes” to the man of your dreams, and now it’s time for the wedding planning fun to begin! What better way to start than by wedding dress shopping? Maybe we're biased. Before you hit the stores, keep these tips in mind to help you find your dream wedding dress...

Maggie Memo #5 - How to try on your wedding dress

1. The Proper Undergarments: Aside from construction, the secret to a perfect fitting wedding dress is proper fitting undergarments. To experience the best fit possible, proper fitting undergarments are absolutely key. (Need help? Take a look at this guide.) When shopping for your wedding dress, make sure to bring a strapless bra, and any shape wear you may wear on your wedding day. Regardless of shape or size, shape wear will support, smooth, and keep everything in the right place!

2. A Great Pair of Shoes: When trying on wedding dresses, don't forget about the shoes! Whether you are planning on wearing heels or flats, make sure you take shoes similar in height to your wedding day shoes. Doing so will help you determine what length  you need to order, but also, they will help you envision your overall wedding day look!

3. A Small Group: Too often, brides think an entire entourage to try on wedding dresses. In reality, while 10 of your closest bridesmaids, sister-in-law, mother-in-law, mother of the bride may offer lots of love and support, they will also offer just as many opinions. We recommend a smaller group of close friends and family... You'll feel less pressure to please everyone and choose the gown that speaks to you!

4. An Open Mind: You may be set on a romantic ballgown, until you try on that fabulous form-fitting mermaid gown that highlights you curves. Don't be afraid to try styles that seem out of your comfort zone... You may fall completely in love, or you may be reassured that your initial mindset was the right one for you.

Friday Favorite: Sparkling A-Line Wedding Dress…Briony

Today's Friday Favorite is the epitome of romance... A sparkling A-line wedding dress, Briony, combines sweet femininity with a dose of glamour. Illusion lace adorns the back of this dainty wedding dress before flaring into an elegant tulle skirt, twinkling with sparkling sequins. Lace embroidered cap-sleeves drape the shoulder and adorn the hemline. For this style, we recommend a low, loose updo, keeping the stunning back in full view. We imagine this wedding dress walking down the aisle of an afternoon garden soirée, with a gorgeous garden rose bouquet in pastel hues. What do you think of this enchanting wedding dress?
