Couture-Meets-Bohemian Wedding

I’m not even sure how to begin gushing about the incredible fashion and styling in this wedding, so I guess I’ll just jump right in.  In a word: jaw-dropping. The Bride’s incredible sleeved nude and lace gown was actually a collaboration between Sarita, the bride + Shu Hsien Ryu along with Dream Creations. Her amazing wedges were by designer Reed Krakoff. And the bridesmaids’ dresses = equally amazing; two of the bridesmaids wore Robert Rodriguez beaded dresses and one of the bridesmaids wore a grey tulle dress by BHLDN. Even the flower girls wore purple tulle and feathered crowns.

Dress of the Week

Jenny Packham wedding dress + Preston and Olivia headpiece 4

Happy Friday all!  (This Friday couldn’t have come sooner!)  As for this lovely dress: it took my breath away.  It’s body-hugging in all the right ways, the sheer paneling and open back, the beading, it’s all so gorgeous and reminiscent of the roaring twenties.  Chosen as part of a fashion shoot, the dress, a Jenny Packham gown, pairs perfectly with an over-the-top white floral Preston & Olivia headpiece – both of which I love.want.need.

Rocking A Floral Crown Like A Princess

We all grow up dreaming ourselves into a fairytale world, and though we’ve grown older (and maybe a bit wiser), we haven’t all lost the princess spell.  You know that urge – the urge to throw glitter, eat petit fours until your sick, buy a pony, and perhaps most relevant here (though a pony certainly would help), wear flowers in your hair.

The options are endless.  The lighter more natural floral crown or headpiece can be strung with wildflowers and greenery.

A brighter, bolder crown can be filled with larger florals like roses, hydrangeas, berries, and so on.

And, if you’re feeling crafty, Lauren Conrad’s site, The Beauty Department, has a fabulous DIY on how to put together the sweetest floral crown.

Friday Link Love

I have big, BIG, weekend plans … it involves sweat pants and blogging.  So relieved to get back in the swing of things.  Don’t get me wrong, vacation is magical, but it’s also a whirlwind and the first and last few days of any trip I fret over what I still have to do, what I may have missed, and all that needs to be done when I get back.  Have I mentioned my Type-A personality is ummm, very Type-A?

Anyhoo, these are a few of my {current} favorite things …

A Mythical Irish Wedding Shoot

Fly Away Bride, along with Photographer Shane O’Neill from Aspect Photography dreamed up and photographed this ethereal Irish wedding shoot based on Ancient Irish Wedding Traditions, set in South to Co. Cork in Inish Beg. (Ireland, here I come!)

A few fun facts about Irish Weddings:

In ancient times, Irish brides wore blue dresses to symbolize purity.

A wildflower hair wreath is a head piece that is traditionally very popular with the Irish bride.

During the vows, a bride and groom participate in a hand-fastening ceremony using ribbon or rope.  Irish legends have often told the story of two lovers uniting as they “tied the knot”.

A horseshoe is carried by the bride, turned up so that their luck wouldn’t run out.  In modern Irish ceremonies the horse shoe is usually a small porcelain version and incorporated within the brides bouquet.  (Though I’ve spotted horse shoe rings – worn up – necklaces, and bracelets on many brides as well!)

For more stunning details, see the full shoot at Fly Away Bride.
