Till next time Hot Rods!
Vida Chic Events planned this stunning shoot out at Kendall Plantation with all the best vendors so we had to bring it to the blog to share all the glam inspiration!
We chose this L'amour gown with exquisite beading and simple tulle skirt to make a statement at the beautiful hill country venue. It certainly hit the mark!
Bartenders 4 You brought out their adorable mobile Sipsy bar & created the ultimate Summer cocktail that's sure to have one drunk on love!
Lazy Creek Designs' place cards were perfect sitting on the understated black & white plates!
A Kendall Plantation shoot wouldn't be complete without some swing shots......
We hope this shoot has you smiling the way she is above! For more inspiration follow the vendors involved:

We feel like Christmas has come early this year with a few of our favorite designers shipping out our orders a little earlier than normal! We're thrilled to share a few gowns that have already arrived and some trendy numbers that will be here SOON!
Here's what we have in store now 2018 || 2019 brides:
Stella has wowed us with her detailing this coming year, it has really gone above and beyond! The dress above not only has the clear sequin underlay to give supreme shine but banded straps that are trimmed with pearls.
There wasn't a single Justin gown that din't make a statement but this detachable train took statement to the next level. We knew we had to have it when we laid eyes on it, which was a similar situation we had when looking at each gown!
Here's what will be shipping out within the next few months:
Justin's newest collection is full of all the hottest trends for the upcoming year! We are so thrilled to have this millennial blue gown in the store, we've had tones of blue before but this Justin takes the cake with its elegance.
Martina showcased some brilliant backs in her latest collection. We added some great V-backs to our own collection from the whole Essense design house! We cannot wait to get them in!
Many of our Hayley Paige picks were nothing like our last Hayley Paige buy. Some of these 2018 gowns will be replacing older styles in our store that have a special place in our hearts, for example the Londyn gown and River gown.
We hope you are just as eager as we are to get these stunning gowns in! We look forward to seeing you shine in them #FutureBellaBride !
The creative Dona Liston of Lambermont events was inspired by a real wedding she put on at the castle on Grayson Street. The details pulled together throughout the historic beauty that is Lambermont Castle placed your tracks right in the Hogwarts Castle!
GOLDEN SNITCH, ANYONE?
If a Golden Snitch doesn’t sound delectable to you we’d hope that Butter Beer does! From the drinks to the bites Harry Potter himself would have been glad to be at this wedding!
We brought out two very fitting gowns for the location and theme! We had such a blast straying away from the mainstream look and just went big and bold with one of our favorite stylists, Stephanie Eiland.
Our gold accessories really picked up in the castle and highlighted the decor! How wicked is the gold headpiece in model Serena Paris’ purple hair?!
For the reception look we really brought out the whimsy: I’m talking smoke bombs (no dresses were harmed in the process), black veils, and levitation!
WE’RE TAKING A BREAK TO TALK ABOUT TRENDS OTHER THAN IN GOWNS/SEASONS TO CHAT ABOUT FUN TRENDS FOR THE DAY OF! FROM SIMPLISTIC EARTHY VIBES TO A BIT MORE TRENDY TECH CHIC MAKING A STATEMENT IN 2017 WILL BE ON TWO COMPLETE DIFFERENT REALMS.
LETS START OUT SIMPLE!
Everything found in nature is being utilized in weddings this year. Now from the moment you send out invitations you can give off the vibe through recycled invitations printed with soy based ink. For the day of you can blow your guests out of the water with serene decor that makes a simplistic statement. Here are a few of our favorite ideas:
Line up your aisle with a variety of neutral pots with different plants, shrubberies, and flowers.
Swap out the floral walls for cascading rose chandeliers!
Try a fragrant bouquet – you can reuse this down the road!
Flip out the flowers for small fruit trees & pair decor accordingly.
TIERED CAKES MAKE THE COME BACK
After seeing the alternatives like doughnuts, cake pops, and cupcakes the tiered cake will triumph this year. Going super stacked and filling each with fun flavors like pink champagne or salted caramel will bring back the classic tiered cake with a touch of today on the inside. Tiered cakes are also getting modified by technology; cake mapping is becoming one of the more trendier options in the industry by taking the visual appeal through the roof!
TECH CRAZY WEDDING
When drones first hit the market no one would have guessed it was going to make a mark in wedding photography but it is! Now we can control a drone from a smart phone and really create an epic selfie with the help of modern technology. So instead of the photo- shopped movie scene photos we’ll be seeing creative shots from above.
A TWIST FOR ENTERTAINMENT
Possibly the best idea we’ve seen out there that we hope to see in more weddings is going a more alternative route to entertainment. Glamour magazine suggests everything from a live choir belting out Beyonce to acrobats and aerialists. Why not think out of the box for this one, it will have your guests talking for years after!
MORE THAN FUR BABIES INCLUDED
Towards the end of 2016 we started hearing of venues and even a few daring brides including animals other than dogs. We’re talking longhorns, goats, and everything in between, much like a twist on the entertainment someone in your wedding party will appreciate a good photo with the animal who showed up to your wedding (and no we’re not talking about that one crazy aunt)!
