Eight Celebrity Weddings from 2016 that we’ll never Forget!

1.) Ciara and Russell Wilson:  Ciara and Russell’s ceremony was held on July 6th at the Peckforton Castle in Cheshire England.  Yes, that’s right, a castle!  Ciara looked amazing 😍.  Her gown was handcrafted in Milan by Peter Dundas.  Her groom, Russel Wilson, looked handsome in his Giorgio Armani Suit.  The couple shared their wedding photos on Instagram.

 

2.) Anna Camp and Skylar Astin:  Pitch Perfect stars Anna Camp and Skylar Astin’s wedding ceremony was held at the Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez, CA.  Anna wore a gown by Reem Acra and Skylar wore an Ermenegildo Zegna tux.  Everthing about this romanic vineyard wedding was perfect!  Visit US Magazine for more photos and the full story: US Magazine

 

3.) Adrienne Bailon and Israel Houghton:  Bailon and Houghton had an intimate wedding ceremony with 100 of their closest relatives and friends at the Hotel Plaza Athénée in Paris.  Everything about this wedding was awesome, from the location to the late night pizza in custom boxes! The couple shared lots of videos and photos.  See more at People.com and Dailymail.co.uk.  Bailon wore a mermaid gown with intricate detailing and a 21-ft. train!  

 

4.) Colton Dixon and Annie Coggeshall:  Dixon and his bride got engaged in Disney World and their wedding had kind of a Disney theme. The ceremony was held at the Scarritt Bennett Center in Nashville, TN. Afterward, the bride and groom road off in horse and carriage to the reception hall.  It was super-cute! Annie wore Vera Wang and Colton, a black tux.  People.com has the full story. 

 

5. Kevin Hart and Eniko Parrish:  Kevin and Eniko were married in Santa Barbara, California.  The blushing bride wore, two custom Vera Wang gowns; and she slayed in both!  For the wedding, Eniko wore a lace mermaid gown.  The gown had a sheer bodice with hand-embroidered French Chantilly lace appliqués, and a tulle skirt.  For the reception she changed into her second Vera gown, a long sleeved, sheer, fit-and-flare gown with lace appliqués.  The couple shared their wedding photos on Instagram.

 

6.) Audrina Patridge and Corey Bohan:  The happy couple had their wedding ceremony on November 5th in Hawaii.  One of my favorite parts about this wedding is that the groom was able to where a man bun and suspenders 😀. I’m describing this as a chic, boho wedding with an awesome location and romantic feel.  I love how the bride and groom got to be themselves and that baby Kirra got in on the action too.  US Magazine got the exclusive and plenty of gorgeous photos. Visit US Magazine for more.

 

7.) Corbin Bleu and Sasha Clements: Corbin married his sweetheart Sasha at Hummingbird Nest in Santa Susana, California, on July 23 in a romantic ceremony.  The adorable couple looked amazing with bride in her Pnina Tornai gown and groom wearing Tony Bowls. Corbin and Sasha look like best friends. They did a salsa for their first dance, and then danced the night away with guests.  Find out more at People.com

 

8.) Becca Tobin and Zach Martin:  In a December, winter wedding, Becca Tobin married Zach Martin at the luxurious Amangani hotel in Wyoming.  Jane Lynch officiated the ceremony.  It was quite a glee-ful event!  Brides.com has the exclusive and some awesome photos of the glee cast at the wedding.  The bride looked super sweet in her gown, which she helped design at her favorite boutique.

Ideas for a Frosty Blue Winter Wonderland Wedding

Winter Wonderland weddings are fabulous! I loved this whole idea when I was looking for the perfect wedding theme for my own ceremony & reception.
Preston Bailey is awesome at whatever he puts together. (Check out his site: Preston Bailey).

In my opinion, the decor for a Frosty Winter Wonderland Wedding should feature sparkles, snowflakes and lights. The colors are usually white and a light shade of blue. White flowers look amazing in this setting since the rest of the decorations are so glitzy and shiny, the flowers don’t have to be full of color. Below is a collage of ideas I’ve put together. This is what I would include in a Winter Wonderland Wedding if I was using this theme. I would also include lots of winter trees, and maybe a faux fur shawl.

Traditional Spanish Weddings

From the gown to the mantilla, Spanish brides shine in traditional wedding pieces.

The Royal wedding photos above capture traditional Roman-Catholic weddings in all their glory. A traditional Spanish Bride look is glamorous and not too hard to put together. Here are the basics:

Traditionally, the mantilla, (or veil) was made of only lace. Today, you can find both lace veils, and sheer veils with lace trim.

The veil is placed over a fan-shaped peineta. This will make any bride look like a queen.

The peineta comes in different sizes and shapes, so you can choose how high you want it.

Spanish style wedding dresses are elegant and form fitting. There are a variety of Flamenco style wedding dresses available online.

Traditionally, brides carried fans down the aisle but, today many brides carry a bouquet of red flowers.

Did you know that traditionally, Spanish brides wore black dresses? The black dress signified that the bride would remain faithful until death.
