In the October 2010 issue of InStyle, celebrities were asked “What’s your favorite wedding tradition?”
“I loved not seeing her that day until we saw each other during the ceremony.”
— Ellen DeGeneres
“Brides tend to forget to wear something blue. I had a little blue ribbon sewn into my dress that I really loved.”
— Ashlee Simpson- Wentz
“The toasts! Sometimes they’re funny or inappropriate. You’re like, “Wow, maybe you don’t want to share that with 150 people.”
— Kate Walsh
“Well, I’m Mexican, so we have a lot of them. I love the lasso in Catholic ceremonies. It’s basically a rosary that they put around the bride and the groom.”
— Eva Longoria Parker
The article really struck me because it took me awhile to have a favorite wedding tradition. I absolutely love the anniversary dance and am thrilled to see it slowly replacing the bridal bouquet toss. I rather celebrate marriage at any wedding.
What is your favorite tradition?
Charlotte Dellal is the designer behind the fablous UK shoe line, Charlotte Olympia. Married in May 2010, she had Giambattia Valli design a gown for her. And, I adore the gown for the simple fact that it looks like two gowns, but is, in fact, just one.
The photo quality is poor; but use your imagination!
How many mass retailers are going to enter the wedding gown market?
The latest is the Bridal Boutique at White House Black Market. I have only seen the photos online but like the designs. I really want to see the line in person though before giving a final opinion. Something can look great on the web but not so great in person.
My main concern is the quality of the dresses. Katharine which is made of polyester and costs only $348. Audrey is $698 but made of pure silk. In my eyes, the Audrey gown is the real bargain … but again, I would like to see the gown in person to feel the quality of the material. Quality at WHBM is very much hit or miss, in my opinion.
In the same September issue as yesterday’s post, Vogue covered two recent brides that both happen to be models.
I adore Coco Rocha’s gown. (If you haven’t seen the video from her wedding, then where have you been? Click here.) The gown, designed by Zac Posen, it is stunning. And can be/ should be worn by only 1% of the population. She is truly breathtaking.
Lara Stone’s dress is an entirely different matter. What was she thinking?! My initial impression is that even if she was marrying a rock star (she didn’t, the groom is an actor), I hate this dress. I mean, I really hate it.
What do you think?
