Favorite Friday | Shoulder Necklaces

Aren’t these shoulder necklaces and boleros simply stunning!? We are loving these for the bride looking to add extra sparkle to their bridal attire, whether it be something dainty, elegant, or a bit edgy. The great thing about these is that they can easily be removed for dancing and you can pair them with literally any strapless gown!

Reina is definitely my favorite – I love the modern simplicity of the design, the hint of sparkle, and the elegant way it drapes along the shoulders.

5 Trends from Bridal Fashion Week

Bridal Fashion Week may have wrapped up earlier this month, but we’re still drooling over the gorgeous gowns that made their way down the runway. Check out our fashion forward coordinator’s {Miss Shadow} five favorite trends from this years shows!

Capes – No veil necessary here. Capes were all the rage on the runway for Spring. Whether you opt for a long bridal cape or a short caplet, you will add a modern element that is sure to make a statement. Best part, just like a veil you can remove it to reveal hidden details of your gown.{Left to right: Romona Kevenza, Naeem Khan and Monique Lhuillier}

V-Necklines – Although a deep v-neckline can seem a bit risqué, it actually can flatter the upper body and elongate a petite or short torso. Designers have mixed them up with everything from delicate lace to illusion-covered cuts to embellished fabrics to offer a soft feminine style. Pro tip: Keep that Hollywood Fashion tape handy. {Left to right: Anne Barge, Rivini and Lela Rose}

Floral – Floral has never been so prominent as they were in almost every collection for next Spring. Designers incorporated florals in several ways from floral lace to 3-D to embellished appliqués and we could be more excited to see not only floral but color as well. {Left to right: Marchesa, Jenny Packham and Ines Di Santo}

Sheer Illusion – Think sultry and sweet and this season, designers played with sheer elements ranging from embellished, modesty cutout panels to full-on see-through embroidered tops and dresses. If you want something more daring than sheer is a fabulous choice as it is revealing but still elegant. {Left to right: Ines Di Santo, J Mendel and Berta}

Off the Shoulder – Move over Strapless, shoulder details are back! Modest-meets-sexy. Designers did some incredible updates to the classic trend, including embroidered illusion necklines, floral detailing, and sleeves with peekaboo slits. {Left to right: Reem Acra, Francesca Miranda and Christos}
