Ensembles: The Casual Bride

Super excited to introduce one of our newest contributors, Brittany from The House That Lars Built!  I’ve continually been inspired by her work ever seeing the giant paper flowers she made for her wedding, as I’m sure you have as well.  Welcome Brittany!

Deciding what to wear for my wedding about a year ago brought out the indecisive in me. One day I wanted to go art deco glamour and the next English country. One thing was for sure though: no princess! Though I loved what I wore—my mom’s old dress— I forgot jewelry entirely and would have loved to have donned a veil or hat of some sort. Oh well! I still think about looks I wish I could have rocked including this casual & cute ensemble. I love the idea of being able to reuse the wedding items and this definitely fits the bill. – Brittany

I recently helped a friend pick out a dress to wear to a Vegas bachelorette and the eternal struggle of “what do I wear to VEGAS?” reared its ugly head.  You want to look good – it’s Vegas, after all – but you definitely don’t want to look too “Vegas,” if you know what I mean.  My solution?  Sequins.  It instantly glitzes and glams up an otherwise regular dress without requiring you to resort to compromise skirt length or cleavage reveal.  Not the bachelorette or bachelorette attendee?  New Years Eve is right around the corner!   – Tram @ Phi-Style.com

It’s a LITTLE unconventional.  Having your bridesmaids wear white alongside you?  But I have to say, I LOVE the overall effect.  It’s like a whole army of blindingly beautiful women in white.  But won’t it steal your thunder?  Honey, I don’t think anything could suppress the glow of a bride on her wedding day.  Afterall, did it look like Kate Moss’ thunder was stolen?   So lovely! – Tram @ Phi-Style.com

Are  you like me and believe leopard print is always appropriate in any occasion?  Even weddings, you ask?  Why not? Leopard print is as timeless as any and you can be as secretly subtle as leopard print heels underneath your gown, to as thematic as leopard print lamps for each centerpiece.   – Tram @ Phi-Style.com
