MORGAN'S MUST HAVES: GORGEOUS PHOTOS!

No secret here, LUXE loves all things weddings! And with weddings, there are photos! Today we wanted to treat you to some snap shots of a special photo shoot we recently participated in with the very talented Ellen Fleetwood. Not only will the stunning photos blow you away, but what makes it so very special is hearing Ellen's passion and the inspiration that brings about these beautiful shots! 

Here is a little snippet of what Ellen had to say: "This shoot was inspired by an idea of an almost effortless elegance. The groom sports no tie, the bride places flowers in her hair instead of jewels, and the ribbon-draped bouquet overflows with berries and eucalyptus. I wanted it to feel natural and sweet, but also gilded and timeless." (Cue the "aweeee"s) 

Oh but wait! You haven't even seen the photos yet! Dun dun dun...

MORGAN'S MUST-HAVES: SEPARATES!

It is officially the season of falling leaves, pumpkin spice lattes, and SEPARATES! By separates, we mean bridal tops and skirts that are sold individually so you can customize your look to match exactly the kind of bride you want to be! Don't jump up just yet, we haven't even shown you these little pretties!

We will just get straight to all that sparkle and tulle...

This crystal beaded Carys top by Martina Liana is just the right amount of subtle sparkle and is easily paired with the skirt of your choice

Speaking of skirts, we have been non-stop-swooning over this Watters style 5089B that we have in both Ivory and Rum Pink.

Up next, this sweet and simple Cate top by Martina Liana is flawless and will likely be gorgeous no matter what bottom you choose! *Sweat pants approved* 

The level of adorable that is this Martina Liana Sachi Skirt is OFF. THE. CHARTS. 

Oh, Watters 9013B has completely stollen our hearts. But seriously, #buttongoals. 

Watters Carlton is the perfect addition to any fitted gown that just needs a little bit of a flare, not to mention, you get the feel of having TWO dresses. 

We thought we would wrap it up with a little "wow" factor. Cayla by Martina Liana might blind you with all that glitz and glam but we promise, it is SO worth it! 

Don't forget to visit luxereduxbridal.com for more details of all these new beauties!

MORGAN'S MUST-HAVES: HAIR WRAPS

Welcome back, all you beautiful brides-to-be! We thought we would change things up a smidgen today and talk HAIR WRAPS! Trust us, you will not be disappointed (but keep in mind we will be back next week with our usual pretties)! Hair wraps are the absolute perfect accessory for any bridal look, so we wanted to show you not only how stunning they are, but also how they work!

Here at LUXE, we have two different styles of hair wraps available: The Josephine Wrap (featuring either all Swarovski Crystals or Swarovski/Opal) and The Amber Wrap. 

The Josephine Wrap, to make it short and sweet, is GLAMOROUS. This piece is guaranteed to sparkle and shine all over your big day! It is perfect for either spicing up a simple bridal stunner, or even pulling the look together by complimenting that already beaded beauty! But wait, there's more! We are going to walk you through step-by-step photos of exactly how these little pretties work! 

First off, simply select where you want the large hair clip to be placed. 

Next, simply wrap the Swarovski chain around the hair. Keep in mind, this can be wrapped along with any hair style, it is completely up to you! 

Lastly, once you have the wrap looking just how you want it, simply finish by bringing the smaller clip back over to meet the larger clip and form a gorgeous splash of sparkle! 

The Josephine Wrap photographed above features Opal beading, but don't forget, we have other options! The Amber Hair Wrap is the perfect minimal touch of sparkle for that bride that wants just a little something extra! Take a look! 

Now you just have to decide which one is perfect for walking you down your aisle! 

XOXO

Here is a little peek at some of the newest lace lovelies our cute little boutiques have been prettied up with...

MORGAN'S MUST-HAVES: DRESS VS. VENUE

Spring is in full swing and we are so excited to ring in all those beautiful outdoor weddings! Lately, we have noticed that so many of our stunning brides are coming to us concerned about finding that perfect dress to fit their already perfect venue. Like always ladies, have no fear! As stylists, we completely understand that you may have already found that flawless outdoor spot where you want to say "i do"; and that spot needs an equally flawless gown that isn't too hot, isn't too itchy, and won't collect all of those leaves to come party on the dance floor with you! Although you may want to be "venue appropriate," that shouldn't mean that you have to settle, should it!? NO MA'AM! It is our job to ensure that you get down your isle in something that is first and foremost everything you ever imagined, and second, venue appropriate. So, today I'm going to just give you a few little tips to finding the perfect outdoor dress, then of course take you shopping to see that you don't have to give up your vision just because you don't think it will work with your location! 

Tip #1: Shape VS. Fabric

Many brides envision a full, princess, ball gown on their big day and shouldn't have to compromise just because they are having a back yard wedding in August! Keep in mind, fabric is important. You can keep the ball gown shape with a lighter, more breathable fabric, like organza or a soft tulle. 

Tip #2: Layers and layers and layers! 

Surprise! Wedding dresses often have A LOT going on that your guests don't even know about! For example, there are likely layers upon layers under that skirt of yours and those layers are doing everything in their power to make sure you do not feel any breeze! Pay attention when choosing your dress to exactly how many layers it has got going on under there.

Tip #2.5: Remember you can remove some of those layers! 

All that fabric under your dress is likely just lots and lots of crinoline that is there to fill out your dress, but it also assist in making you very, very warm. When it comes time for your alterations, your seamstress should have no problem snipping a layer or two out so your day is filled with happy tears and not sweaty ones! 

Tip #3: Sew your bra cups into your dress! 

By sewing bra cups into the bodice of your gown, you eliminate the stress of having to wear a bra but also don't have to compromise the support! In addition, it is one less thing on your mind that day, cause girl, you have got enough to worry about!

Tip #4: If you want lace, just do a thin lace!

There are hundreds of different types of lace, and this is again where fabric comes into play. Lace can be thick and it can also be thin and airy. Just pay close attention to the way it feels when you try it on, there is absolutely nothing wrong with a classic lace bridal gown for an outdoor wedding!

Tip #5: Be comfortable, but also be true to who you are! 

This one is pretty self-explanatory (:

 

Alright, now let's go shopping! Below are just a few examples of gowns that would make any outdoor bridal beauty swoon (and be comfortable) on their big day! 

Enjoy! XOXO
