On Trend: Embellished Accessories For The Bride

Embellishments are in for accessories, but you don't need to match them perfectly,  the look right now is all about mixing different shades of beads, crystals & pearls.  Don't feel like you have to have the same beads or crystals on your handbag that you have on your shoes. Instead of making yourself nuts trying to match the exact same shade, choose items from the same color family, since neutrals like tan, gray, champagne, silver, copper and white all look so great together.
Just remember that less is more, making a statement with a fabulous pair of earrings and a cuff will do wonders or just a statement necklace, pick which direction you want to go in (or switch it up from ceremony to reception) and whatever you do, DO NOT over accessorize on your BIG day!

The new year is fast-approaching and that means we get to be excited about a new Pantone color of the year!  We are happy to share the news that the handpicked color for 2014 is Radiant Orchid - a captivating, magical, enigmatic purple.

Pantone's Radiant Orchid color for 2014
“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm," said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. "Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination."

We loved Pantone's Emerald green for 2013 and had a beautiful wedding this past September to showcase this gorgeous hue.
