Something Blue…Part II

When creating the look of our “bride” (Ms. Tiffany Olson) on her big day I knew I wanted to do two very different, yet equally stunning looks.  A soft classic bride and one with a little more vamp.  With the help of Claudia Mejerle and a few well placed accessories we accomplished just that…actually more than that as we ended the day with three looks.  

For the first, a softer more classic bride Tiffany wore soft loose waves, a never ending veil and a neutral lip.  The veil was worn both over her face (a personal fave of mine), and then cascading down her back and well past the train of her Junko Yoshioka dress.  For the second, vamped up version, an eye veil was a must plus a deep bordeaux lip, and of course a smoky eye.  Claudia took her hair from  soft to a messier, wavy teased look.  And lastly Tiffany’s hair was pulled back into the most gorgeous bun and pinned with a vintage brooch.  This allowed us to really showcase all of the accessories and let’s be honest…as a bride it’s much easier to dance the night away when you’re not worrying about your hair!  

Speaking of accessories.  I mean what can I say…I pulled out the big guns.  Chanel, McQueen, Olympia.  It was literally every fashion obsessed girls dream day.  The insane Chanel pearl and acrylic bracelet and pearl necklace with the iconic C’s draped down Tiffany’s back was really all the bling she needed.  But of course enough is really never enough so I had to add a navy and black leather floral Chanel brooch to the back of her sash because a bride should look amazing both coming and going.  And her Charlotte Olympia navy satin shoes and Alexander McQueen clutch made my, and Tiffany’s, jaw drop.  But the cherry on the sundae for me were the gloves.  I believe very strongly that your wedding day is yours and if you want to wear fingerless Chanel driving gloves then that’s your prerogative.  I mean really, who wouldn’t want to wear Chanel driving gloves?!  No one, thats who.  

So my Loves, there you have it.  My vision of a winter wedding.  truly, MKR
