Unconventional wedding dress heartthrob Jessica Biel in her pink Giambattista Valli wedding dressNowadays we are seeing brides daringly opting for wedding dresses other than the traditional white gowns. I’m not talking about ivory, cream, beige, eggshell, vanilla, off white, diamond white, silk white or whatever variation of white the colour naming experts can conjure up with, here I am admiring the shade of pink! You might secretly cringe at the thought of bubblegum pink for your once in a lifetime wedding, the type of pink normally associated with playing dress up when you were younger and all girls under the age of 5 only favourite colour before they discovered there are other shades less embarrassing to vouch for. I’m visualising a more romantic and calmer tones such as blush, peachy pink, rosy pink, coral, petal, pale pink and dusty rose.

Celebrities who have worn these romantic alternatives at their weddings are Gwen Stefani, Reese Witherspoon, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Biel and more recently, Kaley Cuoco. Wearing pink does not mean brides have to scarifice a traditional bridal theme, these softer shades exudes a couture vibe, rustic romance and a sophisticated modern fairytale.

Still unsure about pink wedding dresses? Check out our favourite selctions that has made us day dream that maybe, just maybe, we would consider the thought of having a pink wedding dress for our big day.

first danceChoosing the song for the first dance at your wedding can be overwhelmingly difficult or one of the easiest decisions during wedding planning. It is the most intimate and special part of your wedding day in front of your loved ones. From traditional classics such as Etta James “At Last” to contemporary and romantic tunes on the radio such as Ed Sheeren “Thinking Out Loud”, the choices are limitless.

The song choice for your first dance could be the music playing in the background on your first date, a particular part of the lyrics that describes how you feel for each other, or it could just be a song you both enjoy listening to. It doesn’t have to be slow and romantic; cooler, funkier music is sometimes used for a couple’s first dance. In the era of social media and viral videos being shared online we are seeing couples coming up with dance routines to surprise their guests.

Here is our top picks for our first dances;

Wedding shoesEthereal;

“Extremely delicate and light in a way that seems not to be of this world.”

Ethereal wedding theme is something out of a fairytale, a dream. By using neutral shades such as beige, ivory, taupe or nude as a wedding colour theme, this inspiration can be achieved effortlessly. It is suitable for fall weddings, especially if it was held outdoors surrounded by nature.

We adore the slip on sandals with the large bow. It is feminine, elegant and charming. The sandals are beige in colour and what appears to be white lace covering the base. From the distance it looks like it has been sprinkled with fairy dust that glitters.

ethereal hairstyleTousled, long and loosely plaited hairstyle is the perfect look for an ethereal wedding theme. The hairstyle can be swept to the side or left loose at the back. Neutral flowers can be added to the overall hairstyle for a whimisical look.

bouquet

 

This bouquet has various shades of rosy and neutrals, with the greens breaking up the colour palette and providing a perfect contrast. We prefer roses for this ethereal theme as it symbolises different meanings such as spirituality, romance and grace. There is also a sense of quiet beauty about the pink and white roses.

 

wedding dress

 

This wedding dress is an absolute dream. Floaty, voluminous yet lightweight at the same time, we love how the blush dress elegantly swishes from the back of the train. We adore the backless V shape of the lace which gives just a hint of sensuality but ultimately it is romantic and whimsical.

The ethereal and neutral theme extends to the bridesmaids. We fell in love with these Grecian inspired dresses in taupe that are either strapless or one shoulder. The hair is elegantly styled in low buns or left loose with wavy tresses. The chiffon material creates a sophisticated and elegant effect that will compliment the bride without overshadowing her on the special occasion.

 

 

 

champagne

Our favourite ethereal engagement ring is this oval champagne diamond surrounded by a halo of diamonds in grain-set, milgrain design. This ring truly embodies a true sense of identity.
