  1. Hello My Lovelies! How are you all doing? I hope you’re all enjoying the (unofficial) beginning of Summer! Or as we call it in Michigan, Orange cone season lol! I am such a Summer Baby it isn’t even funny. Camping, Bonfires, Swimming, Gardening! I could go on & on. And I’ve missed you guys Soooo much! I’ve been fighting with my health these last couple months. And I’ll keep on fighting 😉. And I am so happy that I feel good enough to write again! ❤☝ And just in time too! Pantone recently released their Color Report for Fall 2016 & their Top 10 picks. And of course I’m in Love lol.

Pantone Top 10 Colors Fall 2016 – via Pantone.com

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….

Grey & Lilac Grey Wedding Gowns ~ The Hot Alternative To Blush

Hello lovelies! How is your day this fine freeezzzing winter day? It’s just a bit (meaning a whole lot) cold up here in good old Michigan. Which even though I hate the cold, is really how it is supposed to be up here in January. So I am happy the weather is more “normal” than when we were having Tornados in December! (Btw, I’m a weather nut so weather talk actually intrests me lol)
One good thing about Winter to me is all the Awesomely Gorgeous Winter Weddings & Styled Shoots! We get to see what the many creative minds came up with for all the new Fall/Winter gowns, so exciting! And Soooo many pretties 💖😊💖
I was on Pinterest & Etsy.com *Swooning* over all the pretty gowns & decor and such, when I noticed A LOT of new grey/greyish purple wedding gowns on my fav designers sites. Even some old favs are available in grey now. Grey isn’t anything new of course, been around as long as all the other colors lol. But whoa what an influx that seems to be going on this Winter! And of course I’m in Love ♥♥
What seems to be happening, to me anyway, is Blush gowns have become so much part of the “norm” for wedding gowns in the last few years that now Grey is becoming the new “it” alternative color of choice. An alternative to the alternative if you will. Especially for brides who want a bit of color but not be totally “untraditional”. What do you all think? Do you see this trend evolving & are you loving it or not so much? I think it is going to be sticking around for quite a few seasons. Especially with Pantone’s Lilac Grey helping it along! Here are some pretties to help you decide: Enjoy!
(and p.s. – these gowns are from all levels of price ranges)
