Austin Bridal Style for


July 15, 2013

Winifred Bean is heading west, ya’ll! Now through the end of July, designer Angela Curanaj will be holding at-home try-ons for brides in Dallas and Austin. In honor of Angela returning to her Texas roots, this Weekly Wedding Look explores the innovative beauty of brides in Austin.

To represent their unique style, Austinites have adopted the unofficial slogan “Keep Austin Weird.” Austin brides aren’t weird by any means, but they do embody the creative beauty of their city. With a sexy corset beneath lovely chiffon, Winifred Bean’s Daisy gown is perfect for a classic bride in an indie setting. Southwest-inspired accessories pair perfectly with timeless ivory chiffon: Turquoise earrings, a sparkle-accented manicure, and two-toned sunglasses for a touch of post-ceremony cool. Her groom gives a nod to Texas’s rough-and-tumble past with locally designed Helm boots—a handsome combination of denim and leather—while the Austin bride completes her look with soft, mint green suede heels.

Friday Round Up for


June 28, 2013

June Brides can take advantage of the perfect combination of Americana and summer love. Few things epitomize the first month of summer more than sun-kissed grooms, gerber daisy bouquets, and food on a stick. Before we welcome July with fireworks and BBQ, here are five summery tid-bits to ponder this last weekend of June. Find your inner “ohm” at Wanderlust’s Yoga in the City this Sunday, June 30th. Stretch it out with hundreds of fellow yoga enthusiasts in Santa Monica starting at 1pm. Summer brides are ditching the veils for floral crowns, but you don’t need to be tying the knot to create your own blooming halo. Not ready for the full flowery tiara? Add a flower or two to your updo this weekend for a simple nod to balmy June. Give bold summer colors a swirl—literally. Instead of color-blocking your wedding, be inspired by blended watercolor shades. Bid adieu to June and wedding cake traditions with cute and flaky handheld pie pops from Cakewalk Desserts.  Then nail your “something blue” with an aqua-tinted manicure. Cerulean polka dots can add a wink of whimsy to a summer wedding or a sandy day at the beach.
