August 15, 2013
New England
Hello there lovelies. You know we look out for you here at SMP, so when we hear of an event you simply must check out we have to shout it from our virtual rooftops. It's out duty. So listen up pretties, this Couture Bridal Event at  The White Dress by the Shore is worthy of clearing your calendars for. Trust me. We're talking 10% off some of our favorite designers all sitting in one oh-so-pretty shop. And just because we love any excuse to bring a little inspiration to your computer screens, Beth of The White Dress by the Shore and Sarah of True Event are lending their wisdom on how you can bring fashion to fête in a seriously stylish way...


Words of Styling Wisdom from Beth of The White Dress by the Shore...We selected the Chelsea gown from Amsale as the perfect look for the Ocean House. The classic silhouette is ideal for the quintessential New England setting. The silk faille fabric is crisp and clean and possesses a timeless quality, that lends itself beautifully to this venue.


Inspiration from Sarah True of True Event...The dress is one of the most important details for the wedding day and one every bride dreams of. And I would say for most of our brides it is the highlight of the planning process. It captures a moment in time and a feeling for guests that not only will they get when they arrive at the venue but a feeling we hope to carry through all of the details starting with the dress.

This dress by Amsale defines timeless elegance. It is classic and sophisticated in a subtle way, as is the Ocean House. It has a warmth about it without being over the top, it is simply gorgeous! Using this dress and the Ocean house as inspiration I'd create a color palette of blues (cool tones)for the linens/bridesmaids dresses etc, that would play on the colors of the ocean and bring in a mix of metallics silver and gold in the candles and china and glassware on the tables, and in the florals bring in soft peach, whites, and greens. Softly weaving into the details accents of the beach. Using capiz shell chandeliers throughout the tent, lined with soft white fabric. I think this coastal wedding would be the perfect blending of coastal timeless elegance. With one of the most gorgeous backdrops on the east coast the Ocean House is the perfect venue to create this sophisticated elegant, coastal affair!
