Bridal Basics Are In!

Basics have been slowly making a comeback. Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian made basic loungewear a thing. And now the basic trend has made its way over to bridal. But we’re not thanking Kylie or Kim for this new trend. We’re thanking the Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex.  

We called it back in May. We said, “whatever Meghan Markle wore for her wedding, would be trendsetting in bridal.: And her gowns have done just that. Rocking two of the most beautifully simple gowns, designers have taken note, and–for the first time ever–we’re here for something basic. That being said, we’re recapping three of our favorite bridal designers, who took a page from Meghan Markle’s book in their 2018 collections.

Pronovias

First Pronovias and their EOL collection. You’ll find gowns that are beautiful because they are simple. This Pronovias gown has a crossed beaded fringe on the back, giving off a feeling of elegance and sensuality. The bateau neckline takes a page from Meghan Markle’s book adding that little bit of sophistication.

Liancarlo Design

Next, is Liancarlo Design. This Liancarlo gown gives a few nods to Meghan’s second gown. We’re obsessed with its simplicity. This matte crepe high-neck accentuates the shoulders in the same way Meghan’s dress did. It has that fitted, silk component that adds just the right amount of sexy. Are you here for this Liancarlo Design? We totally are.

Pnina Tornai

And finally, Pnina Tornai. They too have a couple gowns similar to Meghan’s second gown. The gown below, which is part of the Love by Pnina Tornai collection, is for a bride that loves that fitted silk look, but also looking to show a bit more skin. We’re in love with this deep v in the front. Who else is here for this sexier look?  

Brides, if you’re shopping for a wedding gown, simple is on trend. When you go simple, we promise, your children will look back and won’t turn their nose up to your dated dress, because it’s simplicity allows it to last a lifetime.

Wedding Planning: How to Create Your Floor-Plan

Wedding Layout

Creating your floor-plan is one of the most important parts of your wedding planning.  It is the foundation of your wedding day design and will really help you stay organized throughout the entire planning process.  As a wedding planner, we are not always hired on from the beginning of a couple’s wedding planning.  We come into the process at many different points.  When we are hired on, half way through or even closer to the wedding day, it is always surprising how many of our couples do not have floor-plans.
