I feel like you can just look at this dress and know it’s the one. If it is of course for you. There’s something about “Jacinda” from Watters that makes us go weak in the knees, and as in this photo here you see it with a mocha colored slip underneath which really makes the tulle and beaded bodice pop. So I’ve paired it with mocha and creamy pink accents to compliment this feature. You can also have an ivory slip if you like. The gown is extremely light and flowy and can be worn in many different venues. You just have to make it your own. In this case however, I would pair her with these accessories. Keeping me and my gown the centerpiece.

If you would like to see this beauty, and also happen to be in the LA area, Lovely LA is having a “Best of Watters” Trunk Show and “Jacinda” is definitely ready to be tried on by gorgeous brides! Check out to see if any appointments are open at here at Lovely LA and hope to see you soon!
Absolutely stunning is this week’s One Great Dress. Seeing as we have a Lovely trunk show for the darling Hayley Paige in New York, it seemed fitting indeed to put forth a little posh for this beautiful gown, “Carrie.” Open jeweled back with layers upon layers of gorgeousness from a natural waist is very feminine, romantic, and as I see it, posh. Going with muted tones in grey and rose, and a little splash of chic black to complete the look, “Carrie” has quickly become one of my favorites.

“Gemma” by Rebecca Schoneveld is exquisite. I can see her on a 1920’s english countryside, but to give her the pop of color that every 20’s wedding needs, is a strong cobalt blue. It really pops against the soft creams and pinks, giving you that bit of drama that was what the era was all about. With the dress’s chantilly lace, it’s very light. And then with the v-neckline and the more fitted shape, Gemma covers a lot of truly figure flattering points. Oh yes darling, “Gemma” is One Great Dress.

If your loved one has recently put a ring on it, and you’re getting ready to send out save the dates.. well, you know its time to get serious about engagement photos.
What now, you ask? Time to get busy researching. Nobody wants to end up on Buzzfeed’s list of 20 worst engagement photos. Choose a photographer carefully and think about your theme- do you want to be funny, vintage, relaxed, surreal, or uber-romantic? Look at their style and blog closely, so you’ll know what to expect. Next steps are deciding where to take your photos and what to wear; having a stellar location will set the bar high (and so will some new shoes!)
Now comes the fun part- choosing props! Flowers are obviously a big theme, but boats, balloons, wine, scrabble letters, instruments, pets and ice cream can be fun too.
As the time gets closer to the actual date, you’ll want to be looking pretty and fresh, so book that hair appointment, paint those nails, and splurge for a spray tan if you so desire.
One overlooked tip is brushing up on your posing techniques, posture, and expression before the big day. If you are nervous around cameras, watch some YouTube tutorials. The experts say to keep your back straight, relax your shoulders and bend slightly at the waist. Doing the “Princess Diaries” foot pop always makes for the cutest old school romance. If you start becoming stiff, just give your fiancé a big hug and shake out the jitters.
In order to nail that perfect kissing shot, photographers say to keep giving each other little kisses, rather than full on snogging. Don’t pucker your lips, and keep it light! In closing, the best advice is to be yourself, and have fun with it. The most flattering photos happen when you forget you’re even being photographed.
