It starts with a dress, well wedding inspiration usually starts with the bridal dress or sometimes the spark of an idea . I started with this dress which inspired a sophisticated theme of old hollywood style glamour.
I love this glamorous dress by Christine Fox at Wedding Belles Bridal Studio. It’s reminiscent of Hollywood times gone by, Audrey Hepburn, sophisticated parties and fabulous clothes.
The Wedding Belles Bridal Studio is based in Great Moor, Stockport. It specialises in creating individual and unique wedding dresses and accessories. As well as offering a semi couture collection of bridal gowns that can be personalised.
The classic lines of this dress and the ruched bodice ooze glamour. What could be more perfect than a glameria bouquet with this dress? Glamerias are made from lots of rose petals skilfully arranged into one large rose. This bouquet feature red rose petals, although they can also be made with lilies. It is edged with a collar of skeletonised leaves. Crystals dotted throughout the bouquet or a crystal collar could also be incorporated to tie in with the crystal detail at the waist of the dress. I would love to see ruby red shoes peeking from under this dress.
I’ve picked red to go with this dress as a colour scheme as it is a classic colour and gives a very chic look. Think red lipstick, classic glamour and sophistication. Red used with diamantes and faux crystals looks even more luxurious. Touches of black could also be added to give the colour scheme a slightly more dramatic look.
To carry the glamorous look throughout the rest of the wedding you could serve guests their welcome drinks in martini glasses with a strawberry on the side. The top table could have small tank vases filled with red roses along the length of the table. With rose petals and large faux crystals scattered in between the vases. A star cloth hung behind the top table would give added star quality to the look and looks fabulous when you turn the lights down in the evening. For luxurious table centres, large cocktail arrangements of red roses and gerberas grouped with frothy fern and crystals in tall martini vases would look fabulous. Rose petals and crystals scattered around the arrangement complete the look.
A swing band would be the perfect accompaniment to this theme and a black and white checkered dance floor would also be a chic touch. There are lots of resources available on the internet for this look if you need any more inspiration.
