Peacock Bridal

We've all seen the various trends and whether or not they fit our taste, they certainly fit the taste of others. I've always seen women look at peacock themes, but I never understood why. Is it the beauty that a peacock has and the influence it brings? Or, is it the beautifully blended colors that compliment various brides and their bridal party? Whatever it may be, this image caught my eye and made me think of all the different ways one can incorporate a peacock into their wedding day. Take a look!



These beautiful centerpieces had be blushing! Not only is this table setting simple, it's colorful and lively. The blended floral arrangement is simple and attracts light to the table, as well as serves as an excellent conversation piece. At a wedding, Sweet 16, or any formal gathering, you want guests to feel comfortable and welcomed, not overwhelmed. This is excellent and I would see this making it's way through 2013 with confidence.

Don't hesitate to go all out on your wedding. Color combinations such as blue, yellow, green, and purple can compliment any skin tone, personality, and theme preference. The groom love it too because they're not limited to bright pastels, as jewel tones tend to be calmer and more inviting for all persons. Now, if you want something a little more, throw a little 'bling' into the mix and walk down the aisle (or runway, it's your choice) in style!


ENJOY-~~ Tamara~~

Studded Occasion

As females (and even males), we love unique pieces to make us stand out, especially on our wedding day. While browsing through Pinterest, I came across this collage that really drew my attention. With only three (3) photos, I fell in love with the pieces and the look it created.

When choosing your ensemble, think about you and what you're comfortable in. This look is something I would wear at my wedding (maybe not the full toile skirt), but the studded bodice is to die for and so are the shoes! If you're more of a rebel, this is defiantly a style that could make a statement and have everyone at your wedding talking about your killer style.

Thinking about being a rebel for another occasion? If you're looking to have a more formal Sweet 16 or even a Quinceanera, this look can defiantly make some heads turn! With our youth culture becoming so diverse and outgoing, I can see some special birthdays rocking this look. "Does this dress come in other colors?" one might ask, but I'm not entirely sure. From the looks of the site, it seems like it might only come in white, however, I'm sure if you ask around or even contact Dress Venus (the designer/distributor), they would know more or less if the dress comes in other colors. If it only comes in white, think outside the box by adding color to your makeup, flowers, or other decorations. Your occasion is a blank canvas for you to paint and make your own. For more wedding dresses (and shoes!)take a peak at Dress Venus

Finding A Quinceanera Dress

I remember researching quinceaneras in 2006 and 2007, but I don't remember seeing too many options. Earlier today I was browsing Facebook and a few online magazines for inspiration and came across Disney inspired quinceanera gowns. Is our society growing and do our young ladies need more options? Yes, why not? There are about two (2) dresses per princess, with some having one or two more options. This will allow our young Latina women to see themselves in a Disney gown without it being a wedding gown (unless she wishes to have a traditional white gown).

The latest trends for quinceanera parties are color and individuality; sounds like the perfect composition for a young woman, right? I can say that I am a fan of the collection (my favorite is Mulan's two gowns...no pressure), however I am curious to see what retailers will be carrying them, especially in New York. If you're currently on the prowl for a gown, don't stress it. Quince shopping is so much fun and with this new collection, I'm sure you and your mujeres will love trying on true princess gowns. Happy shopping! Click Here to find a fabulous dress.

HOLLYWOOD THEMED PROM

We love doing themed proms and have been doing them for the past few years. Here is one of our lastest proms we have done this year that the students wanted. They wanted to make a grand entrance and just had to have a Hollywood themed prom this year and we tried our best to give them just that. Here are a few pictures from the event. Enjoy!

A Gatsby Wedding

Lights, sparkle, beading, the whole nine yards. This season, brides are flaunting The Great Gatsby inspired gowns, decor, and so much more in the wedding scene. Why the sudden flare-up of the 1920s? That's simple: It's a classic.

Brides are booking appointments for wedding gowns, and with the recent release of The Great Gatsby, beaded gowns, glam and romantic sleeves are making their way into a closet near you. According to The Knot's wedding segment for upcoming Fall 2013 and Spring 2014, the film is inspiring parties all over. But what else could be inspired by this classic novel?

The menu. Having a formal sit-down reception (lunch or dinner) is the first step in re-creating a Gatsby scene. Don't choose anything too crazy, but keep in mind that classic foods are a staple to any wedding, regardless of the theme is best Buffets are usually the reception of choice, but in the 1920s the preferred style was a formal sit down (at least from my observations) dinner. This not only allowed for a more formal atmosphere, but it also allows mingling between parties during the celebration. And for those who love desserts, if you're planning on having a cake or cupcakes (or even a dessert bar), white or ivory icing (or detailing) with pearls and edible glitter is marvelous!

Decor. Presentation is everything and with feathers, pearls, and glam all adding up to equal "classic", brides are adding a sexy spin both on the gown and at the reception. Now, how can one take a room and attain a classic and elegant show? Hiring the right designers. Event planners are fabulous for planning your big day, all of the appointments that lead up to it, and even when you need a shoulder to cry on when you get stressed, but having an event designer will allow you to see your big day as a production.

The dress. All brides want to be the center of attention (it's their big day, so why not?) and with that comes finding the perfect dress. Beading, glitter, cap sleeves, and sheer materials are all found in the upcoming Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 wedding gowns.With a theme such as Gatsby or the 1920s, much can be done with these styles and they inspire so much for the entire wedding, not just one aspect.

Bottom line: Enjoy the big day and don't forget the glamor! You only get one wedding day, so make it the best in town!
