The Wedding Palette – Emerald Green

With St. Patty’s Day around the corner (well, weekend), we couldn’t pass up the opportunity for a bit of green envy. Emerald is the color of the year right? So today, a vision of green for a very Emerald wedding. There are too many favorites here to choose only one, but there are a few must-haves for any Emerald palette. I love the groom and groomsmen in Emerald (the bow tie, skinny tie, or even jacket work – photos below), bridesmaids dresses with texture (Emerald sequins, chiffon, lace or layered fabric – see below) and of course shoes (heels for the bride or maybe even dress shoes for the groom?)

Happy St Patty’s Day!

Dress of the Week – Peter Langner

As another Wednesday rolls around, I found myself on the prowl for something special and found it with this gorgeously graceful and just a little sexy gown by Peter Langner. There is something about the mermaid cut that defines the silhouette in such an understated but very womanly way. I love that it’s paired with the high neckline to tone down the glam factor but the beaded embroidery keeps it far from dull… Happy Wednesday!

Shades of Blue {Wedding Shoes}

Well not to be to cliché here but yesterday I was feeling a little {blue}…it’s something about Monday’s I suppose.. But today I’m turning all that into some productivity and funneling all the sad, blue beginning of the week energy into some fabulous shoes! Far and away my favorite something blue item is the wedding shoe. You absolutely cannot go wrong here. And today just goes to show how fun the blue wedding shoe is. I’m a sucker for Christian Louboutin, but blue wedding shoes don’t need to mean expensive. You can get creative or you can make this a splurge. But the reason it always works is that fun mix of tradition and your own personality. Somehow a good pair of shoes always makes me smile… and hopefully gets us all through the week!
