Baby, It's Cold Out!

There is no denying that the "trend" of strapless wedding gowns has staying power! Most brides can understand why when they try on a properly fitted strapless gown. It is simply a stunning look. Elegantly revealing the shoulders and framing the collarbone and face; the complete picture is so graceful and feminine.

But strapless gowns don't offer much of a shield from the winter chill. So what can you do if your big day falls in the upcoming months? Glad you asked, we have some fabulous ideas!
  • Pashminas & Wraps- Yes, the simple solution for a chilly night on the town is also wonderful for your wedding day. Personalize your look by pinning the wrap into place with a piece of family jewelry, like your grandmother's cameo brooch. We also love the idea of tying in your wedding accent color. Remember, it doesn't have to be matchy-matchy, just the same hues. And think: a luxurious, blush Pashmina? You will definitely use that again!
  • Family Inspiration- Utilize the fabric from your mother's gown! From lace to organza, almost every wedding gown fabric can be used to create a lovely bolero. Having this created exclusively for you allows complete control on exactly how much coverage you desire. You are also creating a sentimental heirloom to be cherished for years to come!

  • Fur- We won't address the faux or real debate, but these days it is hard to tell the difference! Whether it's a stole, caplet or cropped jacket, fur provides a look of polished elegance. Take a peek at Donna Salyer's Fabulous Furs   it's favorite of Mia's! 
Hope you're feeling a little warmer and inspired!
