Wedding Tip #9 - Jewelry: Match your Metals | Lucky in Love Blog

Advice to Help You Through the Wedding Planning Process

 

Wedding Tip #9 - Jewelry: Match your Metals | Lucky in Love Blog

Jewelry: Match your Metals - A good rule of thumb is to match your metals. Ivory and gold compliment each other with their undertones of cream. White compliments platinum or silver. Off-white pairs beautifully with rose gold, silver, and pearls. If your dress features any of these metals or pearls, it's a perfect starting point for how to pick your jewelry accessories.

Wedding Tip #61 - Insure you're able to dance all night in your new Choo's

Advice to Help You Through the Wedding Planning Process

 

Wedding Tip #61 - Insure you're able to dance all night in your new Choo's

Insure you're able to dance all night in your new Choo's:

 

  1. Try on shoes at the end of the day, when feet are swollen from the day's activities.
  2. Don't select shoes by the size marked inside the shoe but by how the shoe fits your foot. Sizes between brands can vary.
  3. Wear them around the house, so they are broken in by the time the big day arrives. But do not purchase shoes in the hopes they'll stretch. You'll be disappointed and set yourself up for pain.
  4. Look for shoes with a layer of rubber on the heel to help prevent slips.

Shopping Different Dress Silhouettes - A Guide to Wedding Dresses

"Shopping Different Dress Silhouettes - A Guide to Wedding Dresses" is a guest blog post from I Do Bridal Too. I Do Bridal Too is Seattle’s newest off the rack Bridal Outlet Salon.  They feature beautiful, one of a kind gowns at fabulous prices.  Their salon is located in the heart of Wallingford in the original I Do Bridal location.  They carry hundreds of gowns in stock, ready for purchase the same day.  Open 3 days a week with limited appointments and walk-ins welcome.  Gowns are priced from $199-$999 with all gowns under $1,000


When it’s time to start trying on dresses, it’s ridiculously exciting, but you are overwhelmed by a sea of white, ideas from your Pinterest and the dress you’ve pictured yourself in since you were five. It can be difficult knowing where to start, and one thing I have found about guides online is that they can be a bit limiting.

I have noticed that a lot of them give advice based on what your body type is, but the thing is most women don’t necessarily fit perfectly into one body type. Some people can be athletic and still be curvy, be petite while also being tall, etc. I think you should go more off of what parts of your shape you would like to bring attention to, and just what dress FEELS right. Of course certain silhouettes will look better on you, but the only way to figure that out is to actually see them on. The moral of the story from a bridal consultant and a  bride to be is that looking at a guide isn’t going to tell you what the perfect shape for you is, so be open minded when selecting things to try on.

Another thing we should get out of the way now, is SIZING. Let me start by saying, bridal sizing is crazy. Your wedding dress size is going to be a couple of numbers up from what you expected. They are based off of a whole different sizing chart, and if you are someone that worries about the number, it’s best to just try and get out of that mindset before trying on. For example, I wear a size 4 normally, and my wedding dress is a size 8. People who normally wear a size 12 will probably be a 14-16. It totally varies, and with that being said, it’s also better to have a dress that is a little big, rather than a little small. This will save you money in alterations.

Below is a guide based off of just the dress itself, so you can have an idea what you are looking at when browsing through the racks, and then decide if you like that idea for your body. Don’t be limited! You know your body, and you know what makes you feel confident and that's what will look best on your wedding day!

A-line dresses are very popular. The bodice is fitted, and the dress flares out near your hips. These can be flowy, or closer to a ball gown just depending on the amount of crinoline underneath.

Similar to the A-line, but a bit more dramatic . Ball gowns are known for being a fun, dramatic, princess like style. Ball gowns have a fitted bodice, and billow out at the waist to provide a lot of volume on the skirt. *TIP- If you fall in love with a ball gown but don’t love the extra proof that is OKAY! You can always have your seamstress remove some of the crinoline and make the ball gown closer to the A-line shape.

Trumpet gowns are fitted through the bodice & hips and begin to flare out close to the thigh/above the knee. Trumpet dresses are curve hugging and do a great job of showing off your figure, I always tell my brides even if they don’t think they want something fitted, a trumpet more often than not will pleasantly surprise them. Hi Beyonce!

Mermaid’s & Trumpets are often confused, and sometimes can be interchangeable. They are very similar, and the main difference is that a mermaid skirt begins to flare out lower, where the trumpet flares out usually above the knee.

The sheath style hangs off of the body in a delicate way, and are normally not quite as structured as other gowns, giving them a more light, effortless feel. Many of the more “bohemian” styles we are seeing from designers right now are sheath gowns.

Tea Length dresses are so sweet & fun! These gowns are so versatile because it is really up to the bride how formal or informal you’d like to make them. Tea length dresses typically cut a few inches below the knee.

Drop Waist gowns are an elegant combination of the Trumpet & the A line. The bodice is fitted past your natural waist, below your hips and flares out from there.
