Wedding Trend Alert: Pin-Up Girl Photo Shoot

Last week, a friend of mine asked me if I had heard about the latest wedding trend of “pin-up girl” photo shoots.  To my surprise, I had heard of this from none other than our head designer, Liz Fields.  Liz’s friend Kasia (whose garden tea party bridal shower was mentioned in the blog last month) had a pin-up girl bachelorette party just a few weekends ago!

I love this wonderful and different idea for a bachelorette party.  Who needs male strippers when you can make your girls and yourself feel beautiful, and have lasting proof to show off too! 

Liz attended GWU with Kasia, and was lucky enough to be included to the bachelorette party even though she is not in the bridal party because she designed Kasia’s bridal gown and bridesmaids dresses, which will be unveiled in a blog towards the end of August!

The party was hosted at Kasia’s house in Long Island NY.  There was professional hair and make-up available for everyone and a photography studio was set up in one of the emptier rooms of their house.  Everybody brought outfits,  pieces of costumes, accessories, shoes, etc and consolidated them into one “dress-up” room where girls could change as many times as they wanted throughout the night and get some shots taken.

Liz said that the photography women were amazing – ready with props and made it very easy and comfortable to pose.  They were especially good with telling each girl what to do and how to change their pose to make them look their best.

Would you consider a pin-up girl bachelorette party?  I know I am.  What are some interesting bachelorette party trends that you have heard about?

Inspiration Series: STYLE #9013

 
 

Lo-Ve-La by Liz Fields Bridal gown style #9013

“The Romantic”

 

Iris was always the maker of other people’s dreams. In school, she was the one who set her friends up on dates.  She would wait at home curled up with a good love story waiting for the phone call telling her how romantic their nights had been.  She would happily listen knowing that she had been right.  

After graduation, Iris knew that she was meant to be a wedding planner because she loved helping other people have their perfect night.  It wasn’t until an old friendship blossomed into a romance that she realized it was time for her to have a perfect night of her own.  

For her dress, Iris wanted to go classical and romantic, and she choose a Liz Fields original, style 9013.  This strapless tulle bridal gown, with beaded and embroidered lace appliqués, and a hem treated with lace appliqués makes her feel like a character out of one of her books.  Iris is excited that she gets to be the one with the romantic wedding story to tell everyone now.

Wedding Style Tips For Hot Summer Days

It is currently 103° outside!  Just thinking about how hot it is makes me feel overheated!

I can’t help but think that on a day like today I would hate being a bride wearing a huge wedding dress with a long train.  Even if the dress is sleeveless, +100° weather is not the time to mess around!

If you are considering having your wedding on a lovely summer day, here are some styles I recommend to stay cool in while still looking gorgeous.

The dresses shown are from our Liz Fields Destination Bridal collection, and with their light chiffon and charmeuse fabrics you will feel as great as you look!

Meanwhile, don’t forget about your girls.  If your bridesmaids are dropping like flies in the heat it might just put a damper on your wedding!  I’m joking, but as someone who was a Maid of Honor just a few years ago, little things like heat can be very distracting, and you don’t want anything distracting from your day.

This style is perfect if you want your bridesmaids dresses to have a formal look during the ceremony, but a ready-to-dance look at the reception.

Keep cool, and remember that the national weather service recommends that you say in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors.
