More Hanging Centerpieces!

Looks like everyone is just dying over hanging centerpieces! Here's another centerpiece inspiration on our new found love courtesy of Chloe.

Hanging centerpieces look best when you create a focal point of one object repeated throughout the space. Highlight the beauty of one piece, in this case, the très chic Chloe parfume bottle. Of course, you need not break the bank for your wedding. Any object or piece when shown in multitude instantly creates that wow factor.

Stand Tall

Slouching may look avant garde in the glossies, but in the real world, it can look downright dowdy. How to get that model-esque length for your pictures? It's as simple as having the right posture! Including benefits to your health and strengthening core muscles (hello flat tummies!), good posture also conveys self-confidence and grace. And seriously brides, who wouldn't want that regal beauty look?

So brides, shoulders back, chin up, and stand tall! And if you must infuse a little fashion forward posing in said photographs, a coquettish tilt of the head will do you just fine.

Wedding Wish Wednesday: Nicole from Thread

I'm so excited to introduce to all my fabulous reader's this week's wedding expert Nicole from Thread! Besides being one of the loveliest and nicest gals in the wedding and fashion industry, Nicole is Thread's PR Director and the charming voice behind their must read blog with a veritable treasure trove of savvy advice for brides.

Here's Nicole's tips on that to die for straight out of the magazine look but often hard to achieve in real life look for your bridesmaids.

Mixing and Matching Colors 101: Some simplified advice for taking the big step away from the Identical Bridesmaid Dress.

Do know that choosing one color (say, grey) in various shades is the easiest way to pull off a 'mixture' of color when it comes to bridesmaid dresses.

Do stick to similar, if not the same, fabrics when mixing colors. A blue seersucker dress just won't work well, for instance, with a green chiffon dress.

Don't be afraid to mix styles and colors of the dresses, so long as there is one uniting theme, such as the detailing, the print, the fabric or the length.

Don't shy away from mixing bold, contrasting hues. So long as you have a 'color inspiration', such as the sunset, it will work. (The foolproof trick here again, folks, is to stick to similar styles and fabrics.)
