THE GETAWAY WEDDING CAR

Finding the perfect wedding car seems to have become a difficult feat these days with wedding party entourages continuing to grow in number and rental car, bus, limo, trolley, (horse and carriage?) prices becoming more and more unbearable. So whether you are dreaming of a traditional Rolls Royce, a modern Bentley or a Hummer Limo, the options really are endless.

Today we’re sticking to the traditional; I’m thinking more vintage classic over ultra-modern. I love the look of the antiques, especially on your wedding day, and most especially for some good photo ops. So between these amazing finds, I think there is one for even the modern bride to love…

The Beauty of the Wedding Shrug

Winter may be nearly over, but there is still plenty of time for a fabulous fur shrug! What better an accessory than a timeless, cozy, elegant piece (okay, you know you can always do faux fur if you’re an animal lover!!) If you’re thinking that fur is old fashioned or out of style, get that idea out of your head! A fur accessory will not only keep you warm on the coldest of wedding days; it looks absolutely incredible too!

The Beginning

What could possibly be a better first post than truly starting at the beginning (or at least the beginning of modern day weddings)… The history of the white wedding dress (and of course how you can capture the classic styles that you love from the past today)! It is widely known that Queen Victoria made the modern white dress popular after she wore white on her wedding day in 1840 but it’s a little known fact that the tradition really began with Anne of Brittany on her wedding day in 1499 to Louis XII of France. I wonder then, what happened to the fledgling tradition in the 350 years between Anne of Brittany and Queen Victoria? Well luckily regardless of the pink, grey, blue and black dresses that were worn by brides in those centuries in between, white finally began to evolve throughout the 19th century to what it is today.

So what are the styles that inspire you since Queen Victoria’s trend setting dress? The boyish, unshaped bodices of the roaring 20s? High waistlines of the 60s (think Grace Kelly)? The famous puff sleeves of Princess Diana? The embroidered, embellished, bedazzled dresses of today? Check out these incredible picks from the best of classic to modern styles that remind us of the best eras from the past and the styles to expect more of in the future… Enjoy!
