Perfect Dress

Read below the blog posted by our own Ciara McKinney about Finding the perfect dress!

According to Elite Daily, one reason a brides wedding day is “her greatest fantasy” is due to a consistent feeling among women that they feel most beautiful on their special day. With today’s media and technology young girls and women have immediate access to thousands of dress options. While a bride can love what they see in a picture, many fail to realize choosing a dress this way can accumulate the opposite outcome of what they wanted. “Cut and Color” is a phrase normally associated with hair or in marital sense your engagement/wedding ring. In my case  “Cut and Color” refers to your wedding dress. This formula and examples below will help you achieve how to look your personal best on your special day.

Finding that Perfect Dress!

What is your Body Shape?

2) Target your body type according to Nordstrom.com (CUT)

Hourglass: “curvaceous, with full bust, defined waist and full hips.” Focus on: A-line, mermaid, empire, ball gown, or sheath.

Apple/Round: “Narrowest point is above the natural waist at the ribs.” Focus on: A-line, or an empire.

Triangle/Pear: Smaller on top, fuller at the hips and rear.” Focus on: A-line, mermaid, empire, or a ball gown.

Straight/Rectangle: “less definition between bust, waist and hips.” Focus on: A-line, empire, ball gown, or sheath.

Full Bust/Introverted Triangle: “Bust is fuller than hips and rear.” Focus on: A-line, empire, or ball gown

Finding that Perfect Dress for your wedding!

Perfect Dress

1) Target your skin tone (COLOR).

Typically the common idea is the darker your skin the brighter white you can go.

If you’re fair skinned: Ivory, Natural White, Yellow Ivories

If you’re olive or light brown: Natural White, Champagne, Stark White

If you’re brown or dark brown: Stark White, Champagne

There you have it! Body Type(cut) + Skin Tone(color) = Your Perfect Dress!

Branding Your Event With Signage

Our office loves paper! It’s a bit of an addiction. We are all about going green, but with a love for stationary, it’s difficult to cut out some things. Branding your wedding or event with signage is a detail that we encourage our clients to follow through with. Designs are created using everything from linen details, couples favorite TV shows, textures from the outdoors and of course…the southern feel that is so hot right now in the industry! It makes for a seamless design scheme and theme. Who doesn’t appreciate knowing what hors d’ oeuvres is being passed to them, or what amazing dessert treat is awaiting them? Here are some fun ways we have had our paper companies create memorable details with signage. It is not only informative, but fun, creative and beautiful!

Mood of the Month!

 

 

 

This month, we’re feeling green— and in the best way! With the gloomy weather, and the fear  that winter just won’t end, we’re all longing for spring. We can help you get in the mood for spring with our Mood of the Month! This month, it’s moss green, a vivid springtime color thats the perfect accent to your big day. The color can hold its own as the central focus, but looks just as good accenting a bouquet or as a pop of color on a dinner or dessert table. Brides in the Middle Ages wore green to symbolize fertility, and the color is known to have calming and refreshing effects. These pictures highlight just a few of the possibilities that this lush color offers.
