Elie Saab is a master of an evening dress. His Spring 2013 haute couture collection is all about femininity. The dreamy dresses and gowns feature elegant silhouettes and wispy fabrics as well as a signature sparkle. Color palette ranges from white to light blue, beige, lavender, gold, red and black.

The opening number is a white below the knee ress with the overlaid lace on a nude sheer fabric. It’s followed by some dresses in solid fabrics with lace appliques and sparkly embroidery.

The range of dresses in light blue feature voluminous decorations, sparkly lace, and satin elements. Opaque and sheer elements are interchanging and mixed together which gives dresses a nice contrast.

“Mullet dresses,” the short-in-the-front long-in-the-back gowns have been creeping on to the bridal scene lately. Honestly, I kind of really dig this trend, perfect for the bride looking to make a dramatic statement. Add a stunning pair of shoes… and you’ll get pure gorgeousness. But, enough of me… what do you think?

Black is definitely the new black! Black Accents is one of the top 10 looks seen on the runways. Black flowers, black sashes, and black beading are big.

Actually, accents of different colors are the stars on every couture designer’s collection, however Black really makes the biggest statement. The color seems a bit extraordinary for wedding dresses but it looks so chic.

If just black it’s a little too much for you, I have to say that black and white is the perfect color combination for a sophisticated and modern look.

Welcome back to BridalMoment! Today’s wedding inspiration comes from my favorite color – purple!!  A hot hue in weddings, this plum variation on the color is popping up at all kinds of events and “I do’s” are no exception. Mysterious and emblematic of royalty, purple is the color of choice for many brides around the world. Here’s a carefully curate collection of purple wedding ideas to make your event memorable.

Don’t like purple? No problem…grab these beautiful details and transform them to fit your color palette.

Decor. Purple is extremely versatile and will allow for a huge range of color options. You want a Spring/Summer wedding, great use the pastels. You want a Fall/Winter look, then there are plenty of rich, bold shades to pick from! You may want to brig it all around the decor  or incorporated in some contrasting touches

Look. Please don’t keep this a secret only in your décor… incorporate your color into everything! Start with your attire, bridesmaid dresses, groomsmen, and groom. I love the ladies dressed in purple, it takes a little pressure off the bride to incorporate more color than what she’d like in her attire. Keep your look simple with a purple sash white dress or go dramatic with a purple wedding gown. For your men, either a simple accented pocket square, vest, or ties. They don’t have to draped in purple to match your girls, we actually want them to blend in!

Bouquet. Polish your look with purple bouquets and you’ll have an ensemble to ensure all eyes are looking at YOU!

Food. Surprisingly, you’ll find a lot of purple foods for your menu, should you choose to take your theme to the table.  From eggplant to grapes, martinis and cake-pops, even ice-cream or soup puree, your table will look and taste great too!  Or scale back the theme and perhaps weave the color into your cake and/or cupcakes only.

Other Details. When it comes to bright colors, details make a big difference. I’m madly in love with this ring pillow that this bride used to incorporate a splash of purple into her destination wedding in Vegas.

hand painted wedding cakes

I love how intricate, unique and artsy wedding cakes are getting! Gone are the days of the plain cake (woo hoo!). 2013 brought in new wedding trends, including the rise of hand-painted cakes. These sweet confections are true works of art and almost look too good to eat…almost!  As the reception centerpiece, hand-painted cakes are a great way to reflect your theme, the season (spring, fall, etc) or even be made to resemble your invitations and stationary. Below are a few recent faves:

I remember when I was a little girl dreaming about getting married on a church jam packed with lovely flowers. I didn’t care much about the type of flowers as long as they where white and there was lots and lots of them. And that’s exactly what I did! When the day came, I chose a gorgeous old mission for my ceremony and I gave my wedding planner the only requirement for my ceremony decor– to jam pack the place with white flowers. It was beautiful, but it wasn’t that “magic”! quite honestly, nowadays I wish I’ve had more control over the whole ceremony decor. But it is too late for me, but not late for you my friend!

Whether you place them along the aisle or in some tall and pretty vases at the altar, flowers are some of the details that probably shouldn’t be miss at any wedding ceremony (in my humble opinion). So here is a gallery with truly gorgeous ideas to get you inspired and invite you to take control over your wedding ceremony decor. Enjoy!
