Bride Chic: Getting Harlow and Garbo Chic

by Azure

About Bride Chic I love the Art Deco wedding complete with a bride making her entrance in the starlet wedding dress. Some simply add touches of that movie star look with feathered fascinators or those rare vintage shoes. Though the peak of Hollywood Glamour was the 1930s, 40s and 50s, fashion reflected its own kind of chic too. The 1940s concentrated on wide shoulders, satin and high hair-dos, usually worn half up, half down. The 1950s ushered in the strapless bodice with full...

by Azure

An amazing photographer on our OneWed site, Fola Adewole, posted this wedding on my facebook wall yesterday, and I just couldn't help myself... I loved it so much, I had to share it with our Savvy Scoopers right away! This was a mock wedding in Orange County, CA, shot with a beautiful couple who was married recently. Unfortunately, the wedding photos from their real wedding weren't exactly what they were looking for... So how cool that they got to be a part of this! I absolutely...

Bride Chic: LACE: New Spins on an Old Tradition

by Azure

About Bride Chic Lace as we know it evokes images of woven florals and scalloped edges on flounced skirts and collars. Though these time-honored looks will always be with us, lately we’re seeing new spins on the use of lace in bridal wear. Not only are the traditionals like Alencon and Chantilly now used in cutting edge ways, new inventions in knit and revivals in cotton and crocheted laces are showing up. Some of it is being used discreetly on no more than a sleeve or yoke, while...

Bubbly Bride: Barefoot Bride

by Azure

About Bubbly Bride A few weeks ago I wrote a post on telling your story through the shoes you pick for your wedding day. Today I am going to entertain another idea— walking down the aisle barefoot. Your story may not include shoes at all and that is OK! If shoes aren't your thing, do not waste time and money searching out a pair to complete your attire. A common stereotype that goes along with brides and bare feet is that it is only acceptable at beach weddings or if you...

09.04.09: The-Dream and Christina Millian Get Hitched in Vegas!

by Azure

In July, we reported that rapper/producer The-Dream would wed singer Christina Milian. Well, it didn't take long, because the two got hitched on Friday (Sept. 4th) in Las Vegas! The quickie ceremony went down around midnight Friday morning, at the same Little White Wedding Chapel that Britney Spears married at in 2004 (when she wed her hometown beau, Jason Alexander). Surprisingly, this was a very low-key, budget-friendly affair. Milian rented her wedding dress for a mere $200...

One, Two, Dye My Wedding Shoe?

by Azure

Although there are alternatives, most brides expect to spend money on a wedding dress they’ll only wear once. But what about shoes? Shoes don’t really become heirlooms, and I haven’t seen anyone successfully pull off white heels and jeans since the 80s, so what exactly are you supposed to do with wedding shoes? Here’s an idea, don’t buy white ones. I bought blue shoes for my wedding and let them do double duty as my “something blue.” I don’t feel bad that they’re...
