These weddings have convinced me of two ingredients that make a beautiful event: bridesmaids clad in blue and animal motifs. (I’ve always been partial to a squirrel.) Be sure to check at the complete posts here and here: they are truly stunning.

Happy Friday!


Nothing is more “New York style” than a little black dress. Yesterday, I posted pictures of bridesmaids in little black dresses, so it seems only fitting that today’s “eye candy” post features chic maids in black with the most beautiful backdrop imaginable: the Brooklyn Bridge.

Not only were the venues for the ceremony and reception two of my favorite places (Brooklyn Bridge Park and Galapagos Art Space, respectively), this bride really knows how to manage a crowd.

From the photographer: “My favorite thing (and most creative I think) that Megan and Nick did for their ceremony was add a little game into the mix. Because where they exchanged vows is situated right next to the Manhattan Bridge every couple minutes a train passes, making some serious noise! Megan’s solution was to make a drinking game out of it. Every guest was given a plastic cup of sangria, as was the whole wedding party, and every-time the train came-they drank! Such a cool solution to a potentially totally annoying hiccup during the ceremony.”

Happy Friday!

Parasols have been quite popular this summer (and in summers’ past). I love the traditional, yet unexpected, feel it gives to the outfits. (These girls from yesterday’s post on pink shoes nail the charming nature of parasols.)

In honor of the hot hot sun that seems to have taken up permanent residence in the New York City sky, here are some pictures of some ladies (and the occasional gentleman) with fancy umbrellas staying cool in the shade.

Ecru-colored dresses can be difficult to pull off, especially while ensuring the dress is wedding appropriate. (They can easily fall into the “naked dress” category.) These dresses, though, look perfectly at home at this Texas ranch event. The ruffles ooze chic.

Of course, it helps when the bride and one of her maids are former pageant queens; they are the kind of glamorous woman who would ooze chic in a burlap sack.

And I love the flowergirls’ navy blue pettiskirts. They tie in beautifully with the bridesmaids through the MOH’s navy blue wrap.

Could these little girls be any cuter?
