Are Tiaras the New Flower Crowns?

We’ve been seeing a new crop of dainty and darling tiaras taking place atop heads in high fashion wedding editorials and we want to know what you think of the trend. Would you rock a bejeweled crown or a tiny tiara to add a whimsical touch to your wedding look? We personally love the unique element it adds (there’s a tiara out there for all personalities!) and have rounded up our favorite crowning moments to draw inspiration from…

What’s Your Bridal Style?

We have been seeing so many gorgeous bridal looks lately and thought it would be fun to pull together some head to toe inspiration for all types of bridal beauties out there! So let us know which one are you; the princess or perhaps the untraditionalist!?

The Princess: Over the top elegance with a dramtic gown and a touch of sparkle…


The Modernist: Sleek and chic come to mind with this pairing of stark white & silver.


The Romantic: Flowy chiffon, swaths of lace, & heavenly feathers for a light as air look.


The Boho Beauty: Rings on her fingers and flowers in her hair for the bohemian bride.


The Classic: Crisp & clean best describes this timeless look. Don’t forget the peonies!


The Untraditionalist: And anything goes for this rule breaker.


Here’s To The Boys…

Ok boys we know we don’t talk about things that interest you to much here on the B&A blog so we figured today we would change that and focus just on you. We are going to be blunt, when it comes to the grooms apparel their is definite room for improvement. Arn’t you boys tired of  having every grooms suit look exactly the same, I know we are. We think it is time for you grooms out there to step up your game, I mean really its your big day too!  Here are a few styles we would love to see coming down the aisle…

Really loving the extra touch of Glamour that the velvet blazer gives, which comes in a variety of great colors.

 A brown tweed or tan suit is always a nice contrast to the usual black that we always see.

Nothing against the gray suit, but we have seen that trend quite a lot lately, So why not jazz it up a little and try a royal blue suit instead.

For a wedding with more of a casual feel why not try one of these great vest looks. This look is also great if you are having a vintage style wedding.

Finally, if a few of you grooms are feeling a little more daring, maybe even a little chuck bass esque. Try going with a metallic look shown here with the gold metallic pants. Or you could go with the fun pop of color, having a neutral top and colorful pants or vis versa.

Guys, which style would you like to don on your wedding day? Ladies, which style would you like to see your man walking down the aisle in?

It’s a Nice Day for a White Wedding: January Wedding Ideas

 If I could have multiple weddings-one would definitely be a cozy, snowy, white January wedding. There’s just something special about getting married in January. The month seems to carry a sweet sentiment for marriage. Beginning of the new year, and the beginning of the rest of your lives together. This board is what I dreamed up for the intimate gathering; powder white confections, crisp flowers, a big poufy dress, and of course some fur.

Blame it on the cold weather yesterday, but I am coveting all things (faux) fur at the moment. I found some great inspiration pictures of how to incorporate fur into your big day.

you can wear it

you can have your girls wear it

you can wear it next to your furry friend

you can dine on it

and lastly you can get married on it!
