Pantone recently released their Color Report for Fall 2016 & their Top 10 picks. And of course I’m in Love lol.

Riverside Blue, Airy Blue, Sharkskin Grey, Aurora Red, Warm Taupe, Dusty Cedar, Lush Green, Potter’s Clay, Spicy Mustard and Bodacious Lavender. *Sigh* They’re all so pretty. This is the first time since I started keeping up with Pantone that I can honestly say I really love all the colors on this list! I’ve liked the others for sure, but like a regular person would, there were a color or two that I thought were pretty but not my favorite. This list I’m just crushing over! 💖😍 Here are some Inspiration Boards for you to Swoon & Crush on….

**Bonus Gown**
I just had to include this last gown from Claire Pettibone. “Alchemy” is so gorgeous beyond words to me. But being that is costs $5000 I was a bit reluctant. I’m all about helping brides find affordable gowns but this one time I had to make an exception! This dress is Totally TDF! 😁

Well how about those goddess gowns? I am Seriously speechless! So beautiful. Hopefully you all found a gorgeous gown to call all your own or some dapper inspiration for your own unique creation 😁 I think a Gold Wedding Gown is a great way to stay traditional but with a slight twist. What do you think? Is a gold dress too much or a just right mix of traditional meets modern? I’d love to hear your opinion! Have a blessed day & enjoy the rest of your weekend. Just remember, add a lil Dapper to your everyday. See y’all next time 💖💖;)

Jewel Tones For Fall

image

Hello Lovelies! I hope you are enjoying your Summer. It is going by so fast this year. When it gets to be past my birthday though, I know the Autumn leaves & cooler air isn’t far behind. I’ve already seen some birds starting to flock even! I loooove my warm Summertime. But I also think Fall is the most spectacular season for colors. Oh so many colors lol!

Today I’m inspired by the beautiful jewel tones of Ruby Red, Amethyst Purple, Emerald Green & Sapphire Blue. So I put a couple pretty boards together for all you Fall/Autumn brides, maids & mums trying to get ready for the big day! Any one of these gorgeous colors would do just fine all on their own. But are just spectacular mixed together as well 💕 🌹  🙂

Now isn’t that just beyond beautiful!? Any way you mix it up, ya just can’t go wrong. Of course I’m totally partial to the reds, but all these colors are just so elegant & timeless.
I know bold colors can be a little off putting, especially if your wedding is more traditional or rustic rather than black tie or glam. But adding just a smidge of color can take you from a “cookie-cutter” wedding to one they’ll all be talking about for years to come, in a good way. You and your maids accessories are a great way to add a touch of color. As well as flowers & other decor. But there are All kinds of little unique ways to add a touch of wow factor. This is where Pinterest & other websites can come in handy. Other bride’s wedding blogs are good place to look too.
Don’t be afraid to browse around. You might be surprised to find things you would have never thought of otherwise 😉 (side note…just be careful about looking at dresses if you already have yours picked out!)
Here’s a board with a couple ideas for adding pops of color to your wedding.

     image

I really like the idea of a color petticoat under your gown. So cute! And painting your nails to match the bouquets too!
Well that’s all for now. Have a blessed Thursday! And don’t forget to add a lil dapper to your everyday 😀 See ya next time 🌹🌻💖
