Angela & Kenneth

Wedding Party

We wanted the wedding to be bright and festive feeling. We've asked all our guests to wear hot pinks, reds, royal purples... let's see what happens.

Here's what the bridal party is wearing.

Groom

Groom

Ken is wearing a Calvin Klein 2-button with a platinum vest and tie.

Groomsmen

Groomsmen

The fellows are wearing the same tux with a black patterned vest and a tie, close to this color, called Sangria. Both the fathers are wearing the same tux with a black vest and black tie.

Boutonnieres

Ken is a mechanical engineer, so we wanted a special nod to that in his outfit. We ordered rings that are made out of clock gears that the florist will mold into holders for the groomsmen's boutonnieres. These were made by Etsy artisan FreakShowStar.

Boutonniere Flowers

Boutonniere Flowers

Ken wanted a modern look so we're going with a wine colored cala lilly. The inspiration for our "geared" boutonnieres was the cool pins from Rosenow Floral Designs.

Bridesmaid Dresses

Picking the bridesmaids dresses was the toughest decision so far. I picked a Dessy dress I thought would be classic and flattering on everyone in a berry shade called "Merlot."

Bridesmaid Gift

Bridesmaid Gift

For the bridesmaids I wanted to give something that could be worn any time, at the wedding or not. I love Cape Cod jewelry and it's a momento from New England so it makes a great gift for the bridesmaids who are mostly from out of state. http://www.capecodjewelers.com/cpoint201/category.htm?categoryId=17398&catalogStyleId=133">Cape Cod Jewelers.

Flower Girls

Flower Girls

Ken's two nieces will be the flower girls. Still unsure about what to have them carry because our church doesn't allow flowers to be thrown...

We're getting their dresses at David's Bridal in "Sangria" with a flowery sash. The color closely matches the bridesmaids.

KEN: THIS IS AS FAR AS YOU GO!

Bride's Inspiration
KEN: THIS IS AS FAR AS YOU GO!

I've always loved Spanish inspired gowns and style...

Ken do not look... hit the BACK key now...

Make-up

Bride & Bridesmaids

I love the style of the 1940's, a colorful lip, and focus on the lashes and brows.

Ladies: I promise not to make you wear red lipstick, just a little color.

Shoes

Ken... do not go further!
Shoes

Shoes are Carnation by Caparros, bought at DSW. They're REALLY comfortable and were under my budget! While I was there I found a pair with a lower heel for $7 that were cute, so I'll keep those for later in the evening.

Something Blue

Something Blue

I bought some rhinestone shoe decorations as my "something blue" but I also plan to attach my grandmother's broach with blue stones to my bouquet.

Hair

Here are some inspirations.
