Dapper Inspiration Daily ~ Vera Wang

Hello everyone! Happy Saturday ๐Ÿ™‚ โค Today I'm inspired by the beautiful wedding gowns from Vera Wang. Like most wedding lovers, I have swooned over her dresses forever it seems. Even people who are not that “fashion literate” know who Miss Vera is. She is definitely in my top 5 favorite designers of all time list! Plus, I’m a little bit biased now because my daughter wore a Vera gown in her wedding last month lol. So keep on scrolling down to see my take on her stunning dresses. And please let me know what you think ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope y'all have an awesome day! See ya next time ๐Ÿ™‚

Dapper Inspiration ~ Neon Edition

Hello Loves! I come to you today with bright gifts of neon eye candy! Being an 80’s child, such as I am, I will always have a soft spot in my heart for neon colors. But I’ve really never known anyone who was getting married to say “I can’t wait to show you my neon dress!” Or “Why yes, my wedding colors are neon fushia & chartreuse”. So when I happened upon a couple inspiration boards for a neon wedding, on theperfectpalette.com, I was very pleasantly surprised!

I would like to say that The Perfect Palette is just about the best wedding & party color source on the web. Finding this website while I was planning my own wedding 5 yrs ago was what got me intetested in this type of work in the first place. So Thank you so much Chrissy~ you rock girl!

Of course neon isn’t for everybody. But it can be very pretty & romantic if done right โ˜บ
Here are the boards from The Perfect Palette:

Surprised how pretty they are?? I sure was. I was definitely not expecting to Love them! But I really do! Though there isn’t much that she does that I DON’T love. 💖💖
So of course this piqued my interest and I Googled “neon wedding”. Holy moly what I found lol. Jackpot! So here are my versions of a Neon Wedding. (note: I highly recommend listening to Wham! and/or Duran Duran while viewing these ๐Ÿ˜‰ 🎧🎵)

What do you think? Which one is your favorite? Or would you just rather neon go back home to the 80’s with ET where they belong? lol. I’d love it if y’all left me a comment! Personally I love the Electric Blue Board. Honestly, this has been the most fun I’ve had writing a post so far ๐Ÿ™‚ Ok, see everyone next time!

Pantone Colors for Fall 2015

ย ย ย ย  Hi there my beauties ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you’re all having a great week so far. I’ve been doing well. My granddaughter’s Birthday was on Monday so I got to spend the day with all of them. I just can’t believe she is already 4 yrs old.ย Smh lol. Seems like her momma was just turning 4 lol.

Doesn’t she just melt your heart!? 💖💖
Sorry, I just can’t help myself lol.
Oh! Yes, and a bit of good news ~ the wedding photos are in! So I will be posting them very soon ๐Ÿ™‚

Alrighty then! Now let’s get to the reason y’all are reading this shall we?
Recently Pantone released their color picks for Fall 2015. As some of you know, I’ve been blogging about the Spring Colors for 2015, so I thought why not add the new ones in as well? I was pretty excited when I saw them. I think Pantone did a fabulous job picking some beautiful colors that transition really well with their Spring picks. And here they are….

See? I think they’re all lovely. And don’t freak out if you picked a “Spring” color(s) for your Summer/Fall wedding either. As you can see, the Fall palette has slightly deeper hues than Spring but that doesn’t mean you have to only use them for the season they’re released.ย  Especially if you’re picking Marsala (color of the whole year). You could throw in a Fall shade with your Spring ones for a bit of added depth. Or use a Spring to brighten up a Fall palette! When I saw these colors I seriously squealed with million combos running through my head! I found myself instantly drawn to Amethyst Orchid, Biscay Bay, Cashmere Rose, Reflecting Pond and Stormy Weather. They’re all so pretty!

I think I will do a blog on each of those as well as finish up the Spring ones I have for you. Hopefully this helps some of you get an idea or two for the big day you’re planning! Honestly that is the reason I started this blog. Your color palette and theme are one of the very first decisions you HAVE to make in the planning, it can be so overwhelming. Seeing ideas in photos and having color guides to use make things a bit more tolerable! ๐Ÿ™‚
So what were your favorite color(s) for the Fall 2015? Let me know in the comments! It would help me out so much! Are there any other color or color combos you’d like to see a blog on? I’d be happy to help put your ideas into pics you can look at ๐Ÿ™‚
I hope y’all have a great rest of the week & I’ll see you next time.

Dapper Inspiration ~ BHLDN Style

Hi there! Happy Sunday ๐Ÿ™‚ I come to you today with some fabulous inspiration from BHLDN. If you have never heard of them before, they are a wedding boutique with a few brick and morter shops around. But they also have a kick butt website! They carry a wide range of designers such as; Waters, Adrian Maddox, Jenny Yoo, Needle and Thread, Adrianna Papell, Wtoo and many more. Most of which create “Exclusive” gowns to sell solely through BHLDN! And no, I’m not getting paid for this lol. I wish!! I just really love their gowns. No kidding, I spent 3 hrs on their site just swooning at all the eye candy ๐Ÿ˜€ So warm up those pin it buttons! Here ya go….Enjoy!

What I think is pretty awesome as well is any one of these gowns could be worn by the Bride, Maids or Mums! Just depends on your style and/or theme.

Now as far as price goes, well some of these gowns are upwards of $2000. But there are a lot that are under $500 as well. You just have to look it up. I was really surprised that some I thought would be really expensive wasn’t.
And finally, it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t put together a couple inspiration boards too (he he).
