Solange Knowles is getting married this weekend to her beau Alan Ferguson. Truth be told, I was so used to seeing them together that I thought they'd already tied the knot. I'm excited for her and have my own ideas about what fashionista Solange will be wearing when she says "I do."
I thought it befitting to start off our new segment "Luxe's Wedding Wednesdays" as my first wedding anniversary approaches this Friday. I cannot believe it's been a year already! What was I doing this time last year? Counting down, with only two days remaining, I was freaking out with excitement and couldn't wait for my big day. Aside from marrying the love of my life, as a stylist, I wanted to see how the entire look would come together. Everyone looked gorgeous but not to toot my own horn, I took the cake. My vision of being a romantic-vintage glamorous bride came to life. Here's how I styled myself.
My gown was by Oleg Cassini of David's Bridal. I am pear-shaped, smaller on top and bigger on the bottom, (or as I like to say "my hips don't lie") so I chose a trumpet/ mermaid gown to show off my curves. I always thought I would wear a sweetheart neckline but I loved this simple strapless. The lace overlay helped achieve my vintage look and I loved that it was subtle. Flowers were never really my favorite but the delicate crystal floral details on my gown were perfect.
These babies were by Enzo Angiolini. I know gray is not a traditional bridal color for a shoe but it's one of my favorite colors. I'm petite, so the extra inches were just right for my gown plus these shoes were very comfortable! Sold! Oh yeah, and don't forget the glitz from the crystals that looked like broken glass. Simply amazing combo for this glamour girl.
My jewels were hand picked from the Luxe LeBlanc Boutique, (currently available by appointment only and will be online in 2015). I chose a pearl and Swarovski crystal combination to go with the vintage glam theme. The crystals were clear to match the crystals on the gown as opposed to my favorite iridescent crystals that capture different rays of color.
Shop my look below. I've pulled some romantic trumpet/mermaid wedding gowns for the brides-to-be or lovers of wedding gowns. Various designers are included but Oleg Cassini is featured in case you were looking for a similar design to my dress. I know I never get tired of surfing through bridal gowns. Enjoy.
