Saukok Tiampo, guest contributor of REVEL, has us dreaming of spring with this lovely palette.

Our latest wedding look is inspired by an updated country affair, in peach and dusty blue. Pretty shades of peach with touches of lace make for a soft look that evokes spring, while the dusty blues add a bit of elegant contrast (this is no honky-tonk!) The addition of some woodsy neutrals gives it a rustic feel, ideal for an outdoor spring/summer celebration!

Nordstrom never ceases to amaze me with the amount of perfect pretties to be found in one place:

Winter is relentless, and we’re still bundling up by the fire in our cashmere sweaters, basking in the glow of another holiday season full of engagements and winter weddings. But that won’t stop us from California Dreamin’ of palm trees, peonies and piña coladas! So wax your surfboards, hop in your Ford woodies and join us for a “beachy keen” tropical love story.

Pair peaches and corals with ocean blues and greens for a charming, vintage beach feel on your wedding day. Add a floral clutch and a mint-green layered necklace to your bridal look, and you’re ready to say, “I do!”

Amy Squires and Jocey Canrinus (a.k.a the ladies behind the DIY and inspiration blog Wedding Chicks) are taking over our Wedding Suite Blog and The Thread for a day to share their selects for some hands-down gorgeous wedding styles. No surprise—after all, they do this all day! 

Amy’s wedding style is fuss-free and classic—with a modern twist. Just like this gorgeous wedding gown from Nouvelle Amsale: a silk organza A-line ballgown with a ruched sweetheart neckline, and paired with these Prada peep-toe sandals, and a soft and romantic bouquet like this one from Blossom and Branch.

Even though Jocey’s personal style has not really changed over the ten years she has been married, she would love the opportunity to re-do her personal wedding look. She can imagine herself in a long, flowy gown and gold shoes, holding a pretty pink bouquet like this one from Kat Flower. She’d definitely would wear a cute hair accessory and small earrings.

For some everyday, personal-style inspiration, check out Amy and Jocey’s guest post on The Thread.

We first mentioned our love of designer Heidi Elnora back in March when we announced the arrival of her bridal collection at the Wedding Suite. We still adore the carefree, romantic spirit of her dresses—not to mention that signature Southern sparkle.

Here’s something more to love: Heidi will be guest blogging, writing a series of posts for the Wedding Suite Blog on everything from her incredible wedding (and her many dresses) to her daily life as a designer and at home.

Check back soon for her first post, and in the meantime, here’s a glimpse at her gorgeous Alabama wedding. Lavish!

Check out the sweet navy-and-sorbet color combos happening over at REVEL–featuring the delicious ‘Tyler’ silk taffeta gown from La Fleur by Anne Barge (available for special order in our Wedding Suites).

Head to REVEL to find out where to get all the other tempting treats pictured, and browse our Fall 2012 Bridal Lookbook for more of our favorite bridal gowns.

Over at Lover.ly, we’ve got gold fever! Luxurious gold tones lend themselves beautifully to fall and winter weddings, but we’re in love with one combination in particular that makes gold the perfect choice for warm-weather weddings: seafoam and gold.

Not quite blue, not quite green, seafoam is the perfect romantic summer wedding color! Gilded accents like gold place settings and sparkly trim bring the colors alive…we’re especially smitten with ranunculus and dusty miller for the florals in this scheme, bringing a bit of rustic romance and tying it all together!

Lover.ly here again, back to share another of the most beautiful and popular wedding color schemes of the season! Whether or not you’re an unabashed (or perhaps secret?) fan of the Fifty Shades novel series, we can’t deny that it has inspired our love for the color grey paired with…anything! One of our favorite pairings this season is Lilac and Slate.

For the Francophile in all of us, a lilac-and-slate color scheme whisks us away to the French countryside! Elegant décor dotted with lavender sprigs, free-flowing champagne and a getaway in a vintage car. Oh, how we can taste the Ladurée macarons now…

Are you a REVELer? Our Weddings Team just can’t stop raving about REVEL—it’s so much more than a blog, with uniquely curated, of-the-moment wedding styles. Not to mention, totally shop-able. Bonus!

We couldn’t resist asking the editors of REVEL to handpick some of their favorite pieces from our Wedding Suite to style a dream wedding, by occasion: Classic Affair & Fashionable Fête.

As usual, their selections are a wedding-day bull’s-eye. If you’re a bride-to-be (or lover of all things weddings, like us), REVEL is a must—from its super-sleek look to the smart navigation (you can now browse by color or item type).

Some of the most fashion-forward ladies turn into unabashed classicists when it comes to their big day. And others switch things up by throwing their own trendsetting party of a lifetime. Have a look at REVEL’s latest post, and tell us which type you are when it comes to your wedding: Are you a trendsetter all the way, or “fashionable by day, classic by wedding?”
