On Trend

August 2017
Story by Kimberly N. Bonéy

Soft Focus

Try a wedding dress of a different color, shape or texture on for size. Consider embellishments by way of embroidered or three-dimensional flowers as a sweet way to push the style envelope.

Put a Ring On It

Diamonds aren’t necessarily the way to every girl’s heart. If yours doesn’t light up at the sight of the traditional sparkly, consider a ring with a tanzanite, sapphire, ruby or emerald at the center. Diamonds of a different color – like black, canary or chocolate ones – are a way to flex your style prowess, too.

Under Wraps:

Go big and bold with your veil in 2017.  The longer and more extravagant, the better. Lace appliqués, fresh floral accents and feathers have all made their mark on the season’s veils.  If you don’t feel up to the work involved with a long veil, try a short but lovely birdcage version. But do opt for something embellished, because, well, it’s your big day.

Brown Brigade:

What is it about brown shoes that seem to go with everything? We don’t know, but we love them fiercely. They pair well with a navy, charcoal or black suit, but they can shine just as nicely with a light blue or tan number, too. Wing-tipped or loafer style, they just work.

Step in Style

Skip the classic, ho-hum dress socks and opt for a bold-in-style-and-color pair instead. Coordinate them with the wedding colors to add a fresh layer of dimension. Or just have fun and reflect your own style.

Photographic freestylin’: 

While you may be limited on time when taking your post-wedding photos, consider incorporating props that represent you and your spouse’s mutual love for a hobby or a place in them. If you met your love while working with horses, why not include a shot of the two of you in your bridal best in an equestrian setting.
