Can We Get Some More Pink? Valentine's Day Wedding Inspo

It's the day of love! Or more importantly...the day of pink! I'm an unashamed girly girl and nothing makes my heart race like luscious blooms, bubbly champagne, and blingy wedges in all shades of pink. We teamed up with our pals Revel Petals,  Meghan Christine photography, Makeup by Fatima, Fern and Bone, and some killer gowns from Bride Boutique LA to celebrate all the girly-lovey-goodness.

There's something so decadent about Valentine's Day so we used that as our inspiration when styling the look. Claire La Faye's Before Sunset gown with it's dip dyed ombré blush train and sexy draping silk off-the-shoulder sleeves was the perfect starting place. We added Emmy London's delicate but stunning silver Teardrop belt.

We paired the gown with a variety of shoes because why not? It's the get-spoiled holiday after all! Our model wore Emmy London's Evelyn wedge in blush suede with handbeaded Swarovski crystal and mother-of-pearl trim but we also love the look with our new Harriet Wilde laser-cut ivory Peony platform heel and satin Marina peep toe with that bold crystal heel detail.

We completed the look two ways. First, with  our ultra romantic Twigs & Honey double layer silk flower veil. A short veil goes beautifully with a short hairstyle.

So many brides ask us how to style short hair for the big day and our gorge model Avery gave us the perfect opportunity to have some fun. We love our Debbie Carlisle mirrored-pair Nora combs and they provide such a bold, romantic touch to an edgy short 'do. The Swarovski navette crystals and tiny ivory freshwater pearls are hand-crafted to a lovely and slightly wild floral finish.

Second, with our super soft English net veil by Mignonne Handmade. The flat-sewn comb style also works great for short hair because it doesn't create any poof and drapes softy down the back.
