A Shiny New Wedding Rose

Posted on December 18th, 2007 by Courtney in Wedding Colors, Wedding Flowers, Wedding Planning 3 Comments

Platinum roseWe all know that a red rose represents love, a yellow rose expresses friendship, and a white rose symbolizes truth and purity. But what does a platinum rose represent? And what about gold or silver?

Believe it or not, you can now add gold, silver, and platinum to your wedding color scheme options, and you can order your roses to match your metallic theme! After a little bit of web searching, we found some interesting floral options at Love is a Rose, an online merchant offering 24 karat gold, sterling silver, and pure platinum dipped roses.

So if your theme includes platinum, gold, or silver hues, you could always show your diva side by carrying a bouquet of metallic flora down the aisle. The best part? You can be certain you’ll have at least one memento that will last forever.

After all, a rose by any other name might smell as sweet, but precious metal isn’t a bad alternative!

Pretty in Pink: Wedding Gowns by Alfred Angelo

Pretty in Pink with Alfred AngeloIn recent weeks, we have discussed several times about brides wearing colored wedding dresses.

Although I have always thought it was unique and innovative, I hadn’t really seen a colored wedding gown that I loved. But now I have …

This Alfred Angelo gown pictured here comes in Rosebud (pictured), Vanilla Cream and White. The A-line strapless gown features a basque waistline and a chapel train. If you aren’t into wearing a completely strapless dress – you can get optional spaghetti straps. It comes in every size from 2 to 28W.

What I really, really love about this dress is the skirt. It’s full without being puffy and it exudes confidence. Whoever is wearing this dress would feel like she is the most beautiful woman in the world.

Another great thing about this dress is that it’s priced under $599!

Check out this and many other wonderful wedding gowns at the Alfred Angelo online gallery.

Wedding Color Trends

Posted on December 1st, 2007 by Kori Ellis in Bridesmaids, Wedding Colors, Wedding Trends 11 Comments

David’s Bridal DressMost wedding experts will agree that wedding color trends for 2008 will include plenty of yellows, oranges and browns.

Though these colors may seem like fall shades, they will actually be used as wedding colors throughout the year.

Pale yellows will be popular in spring, while bright lemon yellow will be used in the summer. As the weather turns cooler, the yellows will darken to mustard, green-yellow and beige-yellow.

The trend is similar for oranges. In the spring, pastel peach will be popular with tangerine coming into play in the summertime. Many brides are choosing to use yellow and orange together in complementary hues, which is beautiful when used properly.

Brown is continuing to dominate the fashion runways in the form of dresses, suits, shoes and handbags. And the brown trend is carrying over in the world of weddings as well. Chocolate brown will be popular all year, particular when paired with a gold or pink. One of my favorite color combinations is dark chocolate brown with bright pink!

What about you? Have you chosen your wedding colors yet? Have you seen any interesting color schemes in weddings lately?
