The hot trend today is bright and almost metallic wedding dresses that shine, sparkle, and really capture attention.
Obviously, you’ll want to make sure that you aren’t picking a wedding dress that is all tarted up and looks like you went a little bit crazy with a Bedazzle kit, but at the same time there’s nothing wrong with a couple of strategically placed sequence and sparkles to really set your wedding dress apart from everyone else’s.
Shop local when it comes to textiles
More and more people are really getting into the swing of things when it comes to shopping the local and supporting Main Street, as opposed to purchasing all kinds of high-end dresses from labels and designers they’ll never have the chance to meet.
If your town has one it can be very advantageous to meet up with a local seamstress or dressmaker and ask them to create something completely custom for you out of locally sourced materials. This is a surefire way to guarantee that you are walking down the aisle with a real one-of-a-kind dress that will never be worn by anyone else!
The Disney Princess look is very in right now
Weddings tended to be on a more subtle and understated kind of path for the last five years, with a real focus on bringing things back down to earth and celebrating a much simpler romantic kind of love.
Today though, those kinds of weddings are being phased out more and more frequently and being replaced by Disney Princess style weddings that are over the top, elegant, and major social affairs. Are you looking for inspiration? Take a look at Pinterest.
There are ways to do this economically for sure, and it all starts by choosing the kind of dress that a Disney Princess would feel comfortable being swaddled up in.
You won’t have any trouble whatsoever finding something really elegant, something really special, and something jaw-dropping, that’s for sure!
Planning for a wedding can be one of the most intense and nerve wracking experiences some couples can go through. There are a million and one details to be gone over and and settles, and among them all, trying to trim down to look their best on the big day is often a big point on the to do list. With all the different dietary plans out there, it is important to not try a crash diet to try and trim down quickly before the wedding. Instead following the tips listed here can help lead to not just quick weight loss, but permanent weight loss. After all, most couples want a happily ever after, not a heftier ever after.
Envision your dream body
If you ever read an interview with a successful person, the chances are high that some part of the interview will cover how they always had a vision of where they would want to be in ten years. A wallpaper with that beach house, a picture of the family on vacation. To help you get a step closer to whatever you define to be success, I would advise you to set a goal and to visualize it. It is a very powerful method to help you reach your goals.
Trying to decide at the last minute that you want to drop five or ten pounds before the wedding, when it is only a week or two away, is rarely going to end with desirable results. Crash dieting to drop that weight leads to the yo-yo effect, where you drop and regain, drop and regain. Until you set yourself up to properly loose the weight, you are only going to get a temporary solution, if any. From the moment you begin wedding planning it should be decided on if there needs to be any weight loss. True weight loss begins and ends with proper lifestyle and dietary changes. Part of being healthier means being a healthy weight, and it can take a lot of time and effort to retrain yourself to living healthily.
Cut The Excess
For many men and women, soft drinks are a major part of their diet and also a large source of weight issues. Even diet sodas can be unhealthy and provide no real nutritional benefits. If caffeine dependency is an issue, and you cannot bear to go through the headaches and detox from caffeine, then consider tea as an alternative. There are several easy to prepare cold tea-based drink mixes that can help improve your water intake, without loading in the empty calories, sugars, and sodium found in soft drinks. Ideally, you should switch up to more plain or natural fruit essence waters to help no only cut out excess calories and fat, but also help boost your metabolism to help you reach your weight loss goals.
When it comes to setting a weight loss goal, one thing that many people do and it sets themselves up for failure, is to set unrealistic goals. In the example given, where the desired goal is 10 pounds in 2 weeks, the problem is that its rather unrealistic to do that healthily. Using the basic founding principle behind weight loss, it takes 4,000 calories to put on half a pound. Which means to burn that 10 pounds, you will need to work off 80,000 calories. In order for most adults to function fully, you daily calorie intake by most scientific standards is 1,500 to 2,000. In an extreme case, where you cut back to 1,000 calories a day, you can burn off about 7,000 a week, which is not quite a full pound. Adding in regular workouts will naturally boost this up to a full pound to a pound and one-half, which is the safest recommendations for weight loss. If you trim back below 1,000 calories, you run the risk of lowering the function of your metabolism, which will result in a lot of weight re-gain once you go off the diet and exercise routine.
Detox Diet With Caution
One popular craze for dieting to shed up to 5 pounds in a week is to detox and cleanse diet. These are not pretty diets and will have you in the bathroom quite a bit as your bowels are purged and excess water is shed. They also carry the unpleasant nature of giving very temporary results and can be stressful
on the body. One should only consider a detox run as a last resort, but they should not delude themselves as to what to expect while on it.
In the End
Dieting for quick weight loss is not the proper mindset to have about dieting. The weight destroyer program emphasizes the need for a strategy that works long term. If couples follow the basic guidelines for diet and exercise, and modify eating habits, as well as lifestyle in terms of exercise,both can find the path to an amazing body at their wedding.
A woman’s wedding day is supposed to be one of the most exciting moments of her life. It’s a time to look and feel as beautiful as you can, in a wedding dress that is both timeless and trendy. Looking back on old wedding photos should instill joy, not embarrassment. In order for you to enjoy your trip down memory lane in a few years, you need to know about today’s hottest wedding dress trends.
Something Borrowed, Something Blue
A lot of today’s most fabulously dressed brides are slipping into something less traditional than an off-the-shelf, white gown. Not only are some women opting for a vintage designed wedding dress, but many of them are buying used gowns instead of paying big money at custom dress shops. Hand-me-down gowns allow the bride to wear something borrowed, and a good number of women are also adding something blue to the ensemble. That’s right: no more plain white dress. A blue sash, belt, or set of accessories is perfectly acceptable for a 2015 wedding day. In fact, some brides are opting for an all blue wedding gown – a trend that is becoming quite popular this year.
Sleeves of Lace
According to The Knot, one of the hottest wedding dress trends of 2015 are lace-covered sleeves. Even off-the-shoulder designs seem to be accentuated by the presence of delicate billows of intricate lace on the remaining portion of the sleeve. Brides from all over the world are getting glamorous with this elaborate form of detailing, with lace tufts often scaling down the body of the dress as well. This choice gives a dainty look to the gown without being too gaudy. In addition, brides are also using lace to bring a hint of sex appeal to their nuptial ensemble, especially when worn over exposed parts of the body.
Wedding dresses come in all shapes and sizes, and some of the most popular designs are sleeveless. So how does the modern bride embellish her gown when it doesn’t have any sleeves or when it wouldn’t look good with something blue? They wear wedding dresses that have draped beadwork on the shoulder, that’s what they do. As one of the hottest wedding dress trends of 2015, shoulder beading is a terrific design aesthetic that is perfect for any season. Instead of relying on lace sleeves that could make the bride sweaty, she sometimes opts for draped shoulder beads these days. Your wedding day is supposed to make you feel special, loved, and beautiful. So, no matter what the current trends are, go with something that looks and feels right. There is no wrong answer when it comes to finding the perfect wedding dress, which means you will eventually find the one that suits you. By looking at the modern wedding dress trends we can see where fashion is headed and pick out attributes that we find most favorable. Perhaps you could even mix a few of the latest trends together for your own unique look.
When it comes to finding the most beautiful dresses for the coming year, one can always look to the couture fashion shows to get an idea of what may be hitting the common venues for the coming season. The most recent Spring/Summer couture show had a lot of sizzling styles, and some very classically elegant showcases that make this year a rather diverse and exciting one. The following are out top 5 picks for what to look for in fashionable dresses throughout the year.
Denim Is Rarely Wrong
Denim is one material that the fashion industry has been in love with for many decades. The incomparable jean material is worn by the fashion centered and fashion clueless alike. For 2015, its gotten a refreshed appearance on some catwalks already, which means you can expect more jean dresses to be coming out and popular.
Blue and Shiny
Blue seems to be a rather popular shade among the catwalk collections this year. Both the Ibizan Nights collection from Emilo de Morena and the Surf Dudes With Attitudes collection from Markus Lupfer sported a lot of shiny materials and different shades of blue in their dresses. It is a traditional color to associated with Spring and Summer, so its inclusion in this years wardrobe for the first half the year is to be expected.
Provocative, Yet Concealing
Debuting in the Spring and Summer shows, Valentino and Joseph both showcase dress styles that can make that transition between Summer and Fall, and perhaps even into Winter depending on the climate. In the absolutely romantic Valentino collection from Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, the styles of long and short dresses screamed of classic romance with some modern appeal. These fanciful dresses may very well be quite popular in the coming 2015 cool seasons. The additional revival of capes, outside of reenactment troupes, is also showing a lot of popularity among the higher brow fashion consumers. Many of the pieces use a combination of sheer or flesh tone panels to add a slightly more daring form of allure, yet they do not compromise the sense of romantic mystic the rest of the outfit brings.
Sheer And Provocative
However, with Joseph's envisioning of the sheer dress, we see a lot more provocative displays of flesh beneath a lot of sheer material and holy drapes. With basic modesty preserved, many of these popular gowns beg for warmer month wearing. The SAG awards already saw one of his pieces in yellow on display, which is a good indication it will become increasingly popular.
Retro Patterns and Hems
As always, another big fashion to look for in 2015 dresses is the return of retro styles from the 60s and 70s. Not just in the bold patterns and swirling paisleyesque prints, but also in the hems that border at just below the knees. It seems 2015 will be a year of the old being re-imagined for a new generation, with a lot of unique creations that have been inspired from time honored traditions.
