Well this is something I have never seen before, but is pretty cool! Vera Wang has made an app that allows you to browse gowns, store locations, contains a look book, clips from runway shows & much, much more. Here is the description from iTunes: “Your wedding gown represents more than just a dress. It is the ultimate expression of “you” during a timeless moment in your life. This app is designed to give you both inspiration and information. We encourage you to make an appointment to view our wedding dresses in person and gain personalized advice from our experienced wedding consultants.”
I hope that more dress designers will jump on this bandwagon, so you can have all the details you need at your fingertips. Makes shopping for your dress that much easier!
The past two weeks “Tuesday’s Trendwatch” has focused on defining your silhouette. Now WedCandy wants to know what YOU have chosen…. which one is your top pick? the dress of your dreams? or your bridal gown choice?
This summer is going to be all about showing off a good hat and I’ve rounded up my favorite from the UK Vogue top 100. You can see all of them here. Even though I don’t wear hats (I wish I did!) I think they’re really fun and can make a great statement, especially for bridesmaids. With the Royal Wedding last year I think we’ll start seeing more hats and fascinators incorporated into weddings this year. You can find pretty much any style, pillbox hats with little fascinators, ones with feathers, beads and sequins, extravagant, or simple. There really is a hat for everyone!
Nashville has so many lovely spots to get married. One of the most unique is the pedestrian bridge downtown. Imagine the entire Nashville skyline as the backdrop for engagement photo sessions, wedding pictures or your wedding day!
Last week’s Tuesday’s Trendwatch we began talking about defining your gown silhouette. Hinting that your wedding dress selection experience will be less stressful if you come into the situation completed prepared as possible. Doing a little research ahead of time on designers, styles, fabrics and silhouettes that would define your shape and taste. It’s best to know these terms going into the experience so that you can narrow down your selection as much as possible in the get-go. Last week, we discussed dress silhouettes – this week, we will touch on neckline silhouettes.
Straight: Simple and Classic. This style is a clean line across your chest and is very common on strapless gowns.
Sweetheart: Common as well on strapless gown where the sweetheart dips in the middle creating slightly rounded lines. Think of it as cutting out the top of a paper heart.
V-Neck: Simple and Demure. A plunge halfway to your naval. Usually seen with straps or sleeveless but most commonly seen on halter top style.
Scoopneck: Usually always seen with straps where there are no hard edges – just a gentle round line that is created from shoulder to shoulder.
Boatneck: High on the chest and cuts across from shoulder to shoulder with a slight dip in the middle.
Portrait: This style is similar to a scoopneck but the fabric inches closer to your neck at the top and ends in a sweetheart shape at the bust. This neckline is usually seen with capsleeves.
