Bridal Style – County Fair for Winifredbean.com

WEEKLY WEDDING LOOK – COUNTY FAIR, PART I

August 5, 2013

County Fairs are quintessential summer events. From deep-fried Oreos to prize winning pigs, communities gather together each summer to celebrate fun, food, and one another. Channel this fantastic fair energy into your summer nuptials! Winifred Bean’s Tulipe gown epitomizes vintage beauty with elegant chiffon and sweetly draping sleeves that can be worn on the shoulders or loosely over your arms. Accessorize with vibrant colors to add a touch of whimsy to your look: bright red poppies make a bouquet pop and a swipe of hot magenta over your lips brings a balance of pretty and daring to your bridal style. A multi-colored jewel necklace adds glamour while a delicate feather hair piece ties together a vintage country look. As a final touch, slip on your ruby red slippers: Red suede Mary Jane pumps add a vibrant splash of color to your Country Fair look.

Replace wedding bells with lion roars at your safari-inspired wedding. Add a touch of rugged glamour to Winifred Bean’s luxurious chiffon Sweetheart gown with a multi-wrap leather belt. Pack all your safari essentials in a softened leather clutch as you kick up dust in the Serengheti with strappy leather wedge sandals. Add splashes of color to the Sahara with emerald green and gold on your eyes and answer the call of the wild with an exotically hued bib-style necklace–blues, golds, and greens in this statement piece pull together a safari chic look flattering on any bride.
