Brooklyn Bride recently received a reader request for bridal footwear that was outdoor wedding-friendly. Probably the most important factor to consider is the heel – nothing too skinny that might sink into grass. A thicker heel or a wedge will prevent such a disaster! However, if you do go for a wedge-type shoe, you don’t want it to look too casual or espadrille-like. The ones I’ve found above feature a thinner, more sculpted wedge that is both elegant and functional. – Tram @Phi-Style.com
I’m excited to share with you today some gorgeousness from Gemvara, an online jewelry store where you can customize every piece to your liking With 26 stones and 8 precious metals to play with, you can create the perfect engagement ring, wedding band, earrings, you name it, within seconds (and within budget)! If you love the look of platinum but aren’t crazy about the price, switch to white gold or silver…instead of a diamond, try a white sapphire, or a colored stone for a unique look. I was particularly drawn to the work of designer Ruzanna Davtian, whose jewelry is perfectly modern in every way. Playing around with the customizing tool, I gave some of her pieces the “Brooklyn Bride” treatment in my signature green and white, which of course I would snap up in a second.

Royal Wedding part 2? Kate Moss got married last week to Jamie Hince of The Kills in Southrop, England and I thought the wedding was gorgeous. Loved the gaggle of flowergirls with flower crowns – so bohemian, so Kate! – Tram @Phi-Style.com
Kate’s dress was John Galliano while Jamie wore Stefano Pilati for Yves Saint Laurent. I’m not one for sequins and sparkles, but the scattered gold sequins trailing down the dress, expanding into gold leaves along an unfinished train was so beautiful. Elegant, yet keeping in line with Kate’s bohemian aesthetic.
However, I think my absolute favorite part of Kate’s bridal ensemble was the veil. Loved this so much! Swept over the head and fastened with tiny flowers on one side like a cap, flowing down to a finger-tip length. Lovely and romantic.
