This year the Emmy Awards had so many amazing fashion moments, from bright colors to jewel tones, slinky silhouettes to ballgowns. Here are a few of our absolute favorites!
Metallic was definitely having its moment! We are getting so much inspiration from these ladies and hoping that our designers do too!
Fourteen year old Kiernan Shipka is giving her fellow actresses a run for their money! This darling fashionista is certainly one to watch!
Another trend that totally gets our vote is red hot! We think brides should start hopping on this train!
And one of our absolute faves Lauren Parsekian Paul looked ready to walk down the aisle instead of the red carpet! Plus she comes complete with groom by her side (her handsome hubby Aaron Paul!)
We can’t contain our excitement…we are so happy to announce that we will be carrying the Romantique line by Claire Pettibone in our New York location this fall! Keep checking our Facebook page and make sure you’re following us on Instagram @lovelybride to get updates on the gowns as they arrive. Here’s a sneak peek at the collection!
Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.
I wanted a dress that was comfortable and effortless. I was going for a “flower child” kind of feel because my style is really casually and laid back. The wedding was going to be on a lake with cabins so I wanted a dress to reflect that type of environment. I came to Lovely with my friend Lauren and my family on FaceTime and it was the 2nd or 3rd dress I tried on. After getting everyone’s approval, I think my exact words were “alright, ring it up!” It was one of the easiest decisions I ever made!
What were the most important details to pulling off your dream wedding?
The most important things to both me and my husband were that we had good food, good friends, good music, and strong drinks! I didn’t worry a ton about the other details. I will say, we did a lot of things ourselves to save money. I hand painted all my table numbers and place cards, my mom made my invitations and card box, my sister made welcome bags and chair decorations and my Dad hand carved our place card holder. It was definitely a family effort!
What was the most memorable moment?
The ceremony was the best part of the day but I’d say the most memorable was my husband’s reaction when he saw me for the first time. He was adorable and so emotional. It was a really sweet moment when my dad gave me away too. I’ll never forget it.
If you could give future brides any advice, what would it be?
I just gave this advice to a newly engaged friend today… There are going to be a thousand things people ask/complain/forget about during the planning process. Choose which ones (if any) are important enough to argue about! Compromise is key. Trying to control every last detail will drive you nuts. It’s good to delegate and ask for help. Everything turns out completely fine in the end. Oh…and join Pinterest and stock up on alcohol before you begin planning…always helps
It seems like there is always some new app, new website, new thing to be on…and we are here to tell you that the latest thing that you need to be a part of is Wanelo. You think you love Pinterest? Just wait until you try Wanelo! The company calls itself “a mall on your phone, curated by people”, but instead of a mall that only has about 100 stores, this one has over 350,000. Wanelo (“wah-nee-loh,” from Want, Need, Love) is a way to search and follow all of your favorite stores in one place, then purchase any item right then and there from either your computer or your phone! Whereas Pinterest may lead you on a wild goose chase to find the item that you want and oftentimes can’t even buy, Wanelo lets you shop your favorite big name designers and small boutiques with the click of a button. You can follow other people, stores, or browse by categories such as “bohemian” or “teal”, saving items to your profiles along the way. It’s a great way to shop for items that you might not even know existed and to do it on the go!
Of course we’re on there too! Follow us to buy your favorite pieces from Shop Lovely as well as some of the things that we are favoriting! You can find our profile online by clicking here or searching for us @lovelybridal.
