Vintage Wedding in Denver

I am dying over these vintage details. The china, signage, florals, vase…. down to the coaster…. were all perfections. I guess this is where the saying comes from…. “it is all in the details.

Interview: Blue Bridal

IMG_5773

I am pleased to introduce you Sarah, the founder and owner of Blue Bridal {LISTmember}. Blue Bridal is a chic, contemporary boutique, located in the heart of Colorado, in downtown Denver. Locally owned and operated, they offer exquisite designer gowns, at surprisingly delightful prices. Most of their designers are exclusive to Blue Bridal in Colorado, which means you won’t see the same gowns anywhere else.

When and why did you start Blue Bridal?

When we first started five years ago, there was only one boutique in the area that my friends and I would have shopped at, and it was extremely expensive. I knew we could bring super fashionable dresses to Denver, but that were much more affordable for brides. Nobody wants to compromise on their wedding dress. Everyone wants an amazing dress that isn’t the same price as a down payment on a car, or a house! We have always tried to keep our average dress price around $1,200. We decided to stick to that price range when we opened, and five years later, that is still our average price.

What makes Blue Bridal different from other bridal shops?

We are low pressure. Wedding dress shopping shouldn’t feel like buying a car, it should be a low pressure, relaxed and fun environment. We want our brides to find a dress they love! We absolutely love when our brides find a dress with us, and we do everything in our power to make sure we have the best dresses at the best prices, but if they don’t find a dress with us, we aren’t going to try to force them into something. We specialize in unique styles at affordable prices, and we try to have dresses that are exclusive to our boutique in Colorado, so brides won’t see the same dress at several other stores in the area. My career has always been in the fashion industry, I worked for Neiman Marcus for years before I owned Blue, so fit is extremely important to me. You can have the most amazing style of dress, but if it isn’t well-made it isn’t going to look amazing no matter how much it is tailored. All of our designers have internal corsets built into the dresses, so even if the dress is under $1,000 it’s still going to look and feel like a much more expensive dress, because the fit is going to be amazing.

Favorite Wedding Dress Trend?

It changes constantly, but right now I am super into the corset style dresses. Whether it’s a semi-sheer bodice that’s made to show off the corset detail, or if it’s a two piece dress that has a crazy beaded corset top with a detachable skirt, I love that you can change all the details of the dress to make it your own. Corset detail is classic, so it gives you that pop of fashion forward style, but you aren’t going to look back at your pictures in twenty years and laugh at how crazy the style was when you got married!

Favorite Part about your job?

Buying the dresses is one of my favorite parts about my job. I love seeing the newest styles, and being able to bring the newest fashions back to Colorado! The best part is definitely when the bride finds her dress, though. To see that look on her face when she first sees herself in the mirror, and she looks exactly how she wanted to look on one of the most important days of her life, absolutely nothing beats that!

What advice do you have for a bride who is beginning her search for perfect wedding dress?

I tell all my brides..if you feel pressured to buy that day, just walk away. If it really is your dress, you will still be thinking about it the next day, and then once you buy it you can be sure in your decision. Brides have enough stress when planning a wedding, they shouldn’t feel stressed about buying their dress!

Spotted: Bohemian

Bohemian weddings are all the rage right now. They are the hottest wedding trend since time began. Little wonder people are desperate to have a bohemian style wedding. They are fun, flirty and laid back. After all, the princess inspired dress isn’t for everyone. More weddings should be laid back, casual affairs. No one wants to stress about having the perfect day. One of the best things about bohemian weddings is that they are the embodiment of a laid back vibe.

Here are some great ideas that you can utilize for your bohemian wedding plans.

Hair: Flowers and Jewels

You may opt for beach-inspired waves or a simple plait. There is a wide range of bohemian style hair styles that you can use on your big day. It’s time to ditch the veil and let your hair do all of the talking. A simple, loose bun, with tendrils of hair across your face, can look amazing. But, you need to add small details to make your hair look perfect. A simple adornment such as a floral headband can be beautiful. You can add an Indian inspired droplet that wraps around your hair and falls delicately on your forehead. You can even add a small slide with a diamante and feather detail. Peacock feathers are the ultimate show stopper, and they look gorgeous.

Classic Invitations

Bohemian style wedding invitations are easy to get your hands on. Think rich brown earth-inspired tones. Classic pastels look amazing too. Luggage tags are the perfect initiation to send out. Train tickets or passports styles look incredible. A simple vintage postcard can tie in with your classic them with aplomb. Hessian and lace can be added for the perfect laid back tone. Paper Themes have a wide range of funky, bohemian style of invitation that is sure to please.

The Perfect Setting: The Wild Outdoors

Finding the perfect setting doesn’t have to be a difficult task. You can get married in your backyard and erect a marquee or tent. You can get married on the beach and go barefoot in your simple, stunning dress. You can choose to get married in a forest and have billowing yurts for you to sit down and eat with your guests. Take your inspiration from the wilds of the outdoors for the perfect bohemian setting.

The Cake: Ditch the Icing 

Everyone loves cake. But, you don’t have to go for a traditional iced cake with a topper. On the contrary, you can have a gorgeous cake that doesn’t look like a wedding cake at all. More and more brides are choosing a naked cake. This is a simple Victoria sponge, without the icing added to it. The three tiers look stunning. Add simple flower garlands for a dramatic, dreamy twist. You can opt for a tower of multicoloured macaroons for a fun twist on a classic. Berries and sponge seem to be popular themes this year. Omit the topper and go for a fun twist on your wedding cake. Berries, flower garlands and lashings of fruit are the perfect way to have an alternative wedding cake.
