Fashion Monday: Teri Jon Mother of the Bride Dresses

mother of the groom and mother of the bride dress ideas and inspiration

One of the hardest gowns to find for most weddings isn’t just the wedding dress.  The mother of the bride dress is just as important as the bridesmaids dresses and sets the tone for the mother of the groom’s dress. These gowns need not be frumpy, plain or drab.  While they should over power the bride’s gown, she also shouldn’t blend in with the bridesmaids.  It’s an important day for her– your mom deserves to look and feel her best, too!

Teri Jon offers some beautiful options for the 2014 wedding season for the mother of the bride and mother of the groom.  They range from classic and elegant to sleek and sophisticated.  These gowns are absolutely stunning statement pieces that can be worn to other weddings (depending upon the style, color and formality of the event) or other formal events.

We are so very excited to announce our newest baby at Cocktails and Details!

 

Being a Saint Simons wedding planner, we  have planned all types of weddings, worked with some of the best wedding photographers and designed with talented wedding florists in the area. We also know how hard it is to plan a destination wedding in Saint Simons Island or Jekyll Island being far away. You are struck with so many questions:

  • Who is the best wedding photographer in Saint Simons Island?
  • How do you have a Jekyll Island Beach Wedding?
  • What should you look for in a wedding caterer?
  • What Saint Simons Island wedding venue is perfect for me?

We’ve taken a lot of the guesswork and stress out of planning a wedding in the Golden Isles, with The Little Blue Wedding Book.  This sweet little book outdoes any preferred vendor list you will receive from wedding venues that tend to be outdated and sparse.  It also goes beyond what any online directory can give you.   It tells you which vendor would be perfect for you, which hotels are in close proximity to create your room blocks and so much more.

Fall Entertaining Ideas

Fall is my absolute, hands-down, favorite time of year.  Notwithstanding that my birthday month is snugly nestled into this time of year, It’s just something about the change in colors, temperature and scents that does something to me every time.  With Autumn quickly approaching, I anticipate there will be a get-together or two in our home, and I’d love to share some ideas with you.

Love this set up from Everyday Occasions using seasonal gourds and pumpkins.  Love the pumpkin candle holders (tutorial on how to make them are at the link)!

The use of lanterns to illuminate your space is awesome.  Bringing in a mix of different styles makes it less put-together and very relaxed.  You can use other festive items for decor as well– like nuts and berries. I know that sounds trés squirrel chic, but toss in a few well placed pillar candles, hurricanes and some height. You’ve got magic, baby.  Just see what Trésors Deluxe did:

Now you know I’m all about a good drink, honey. Which one of your guests do you think could NOT fall in love with being welcomed by these cored and cut apples filled with aromatic apple cider, with a cinnamon and orange garnish?  If you can think of one, unfriend them now.  As the cooler weather creeps in, this would be a welcome and impressive treat. If your cider needs a little kick, add brandy and a smile.

Everyone goes nuts each year when Starbucks releases their Pumpkin Spice each year.  Here’s a great recipe from The Grant Life that you’re sure to love:

And what about this Crisp Autumn Sangria? YES!

And what about food?  Youc could opt for a little sweet and savory with these pears and gorgonzola bites.  Well, you know you also have to have a hearty stew or soup, right?  How about this Hearty Chicken Stew with Butternut Squash and Quinoa.

13 Knock ‘Em Dead Dapper Boutonnieres

Tradition has typically called for the groom’s boutonniere to be a bloom “plucked” right from the bride’s bouquet. The sentiment of that tradition is great, but here are some other inspirational designs to add to your consideration:

Fashion Monday: Tony Hamawy Fall Inspiration

Autumn is my favorite season— notwithstanding my birthday is nestled neatly within those months, this period of change, regrowth and beauty has always been an amazing event for me.  Bridal designer Tony Hamawy sent out his inspiration for fall, and I must say, I’m captivated.

Fab Finds Friday: Durga Kali Bridesdmaid Dresses

Having your best friends in your bridal party is the greatest gif they can give you.

Bridesmaid dresses they can wear again– the best gift you can give to them.

Durga Kali has new patent-pending designs that not only allow your bridesmaids to wear their dresses again, but they get to wear an entirely different dress!  The dresses are made of high quality silk, and can be altered and customize in many different ways.  Named for the Hindu goddess, representing her peaceful and powerful sides, the fashion line is the perfect reflection of those varying personalities. These bridesmaids dresses are the perfect investment to add to their wardrobe.
