Our favorite picture of the week features this eye catching wedding cake. The greenery and fresh roses added to the white cake make it visually appealing. We like how they pulled the look altogether by adding the gold laser signage.

Our favorite picture of the week features this botanical bridal bouquet. The dark colors of the flowers make this bouquet perfect for a fall wedding. What we love most is that there is light roses mixed in the bouquet keeping the bouquet not to dark.

Our favorite picture of the week features one of the designers we carry in our store called Theia. This lace crop top paired with the Marlena skirt is such a chic and fun look for a bride that dares to be different, and who also strays away from the traditional wedding dress.

Trend: Sequin Bridesmaid Gowns

In the last couple of years it seems like brides are trading in their solid colored, chiffon bridesmaid dresses for sequin ones. Sequin dresses are gaining popularity rapidly. What once would take days, weeks, and months to track down has become available at most bridal shops that carry bridesmaid dresses. Sequin dresses can be a great addition to your wedding but, they can also be overwhelming and distracting if they aren’t done the right way.

 

 First thing to consider if you’re thinking about sequins is the size of your bridal party. Four girls would look great in sequins but, 12 of them would be a little much. If you’re bridal party is large consider putting every other one in sequins or just your maid/matron of honor.

 

The next thing to think about would be the color of the sequins. Shades of silver and gold are going to stand out more than darker tones would. If this bothers you think of going with darker toned sequin dresses such as navy, forest green, black, maroon, etc. They are still beautiful sequin dresses they just don’t attract as much attention.

 

 Another tip we found via Pinterest is mixing sequin patterns for a super unique look. The bride below kept the same colors but each of her bridesmaids hada different sequin pattern.

Sequin dresses are absolutely fabulous. They add glam to your bridal party and are so fun to look at and wear. They’re definitely something to consider if you want your girls to add that extra pop to your wedding.
