Bride Chic’s Trend Watch: The Floral Wreath

by Bride Chic

Brides who love the idea of  going unveiled can opt to go all out romantic by topping off with a band interwoven with fresh flowers, foliage and in some cases ribbons.

A Dreamy Wedding Color Palette Mixing Lights, Brights, and Neutrals

by Azure

I spotted this stunning San Diego wedding on Style Me Pretty shot by Ashleigh Taylor Photography, and the bride's bouquet stopped me in my tracks! It was made up mainly of roses and ranunculus, in shades of coral, burnt orange, pink, and tan. Since beige and tan wedding blooms are often outside the bride's realm of thinking, this color combination is totally unique. Latte sounds a little bit sexier than beige and tan though, right? So let's stick with that to help brides embrace the...
