Romantic Parisian Bridal Inspiration

Paris Bridal Inspiration

Paris was a universe whole and entire unto herself, hollowed and fashioned by history…it seemed that if all the world outside her were to sink into darkness, what was fine, what was beautiful, what was essential might there still come to its finest flower… – Anne Rice

With that beautiful quote in mind, the team behind today’s romantic editorial set out to capture the effortless charm, impeccable style + quixotic feel of the city of lights. The planning + design team at Allure with Decor didn’t hold back when it came to (artfully) piling on the romance. They say, We styled this modern Parisian shoot with a few hints of bohemian flair, and kept it light and airy with colors like cream, blush, and gold. We wanted to capture the feel of an anticipatory bride awaiting her groom on the streets of one of the most romantic cities in the world…

Girls, you’re going to flip for the insane gowns from this one, by Elizabeth Dye. And with the dreamy snaps by Olivia Leigh Photography + g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s florals by Penny and Lulu, it all comes together to form one very inspiring (and pinnable) package!

We added lots of tulle to keep the airy feel, and to create the feeling of being weightless and fanciful. The tulle epaulets on the dress added a bit of fairy-tale romance, and balanced out the darker elements like the black and gold centerpieces.

Unique Wedding Bands from Tungsten World

Tungsten Wedding Bands

Even if you’re in the early stages of the wedding planning process, we say it’s never too early to start thinking about your wedding bands. If you picture it like this: these bands will become an integral part of your everyday life. Your most worn piece of jewelry + one of the biggest reminders from your wedding day. And if you’re the type of couple who wants to find wedding bands that are unique, customizable, highly durable and affordable (and, really, who doesn’t?!), stick around for a sec to meet our partners at Tungsten World.

TungstenWorld.com provides couples with a wide array of stunning tungsten wedding rings for men and women. In addition to that, they offer cobalt chrome wedding rings, diamond tungsten rings, titanium wedding bands for men and black zirconium wedding bands. Their alternative metals come in a wide array of colors + styles and are even available in varying levels of ruggedness. So what – exactly – makes a ring vary in ruggedness? Here’s a quick example to break it down: A men’s tungsten wedding band is 8x more scratch resistant than 14k gold wedding rings and at an average cost of $199, much more affordable as well. If you’re looking to break the mold of the average wedding band, TW’s line of wedding rings are the one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces you’re looking for.

Indigo + Leather Wedding Inspiration

Indigo and Leather Inspiration

It’s no big secret that indigo is the talk of the town these days. From weddings to interiors, this versatile hue can bring so much style to any setting. We especially love how the team from today’s creative editorial photographer, Katie Pritchard, and paper designer, Alex, from Goodheart Design teamed up to reinvent the wheel, with a more masculine take on the idea of indigo.

Alex says, We wanted to offer something a soon-to-be bride could be scrolling through and think her fiancé would love as well. We tried to keep it neutral, simple and classy with leather and indigo details. Besides sticking to our neutral color palette, we tried to add very specific manly features throughout the shoot such as Teakwood & Tobacco smelling candles, leather placemats, old whiskey bottles and the Classic Manhattan drink.

We love how the Katie + Alex spread the indigo hue throughout the setting, careful not to overuse it anywhere. The indigo pillows, chairs, goblets and napkins were so stylish + just the right amount of blue.
