With a name like Style Me Pretty, our days are filled with all things pretty, but the word “pretty” doesn’t do justice to the wedding dresses at Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week. From the romantic sophistication at Pronovias and the whimsical charm at Marco & Maria to the modern edge at Angel Sanchez and the sexy femininity at Galia Lahav, each collection took our breath away. While we highly recommend getting lost in all the galleries of gowns, we rounded up a few of our favorites that stood out among the rest — take a look below!

5 Tips for a Smooth Dress Fitting Process

Original Source: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/typepad/style_me_pretty/~3/dbBdMX2gXx4/

So you’ve made one of the biggest wedding decisions yet—choosing your dress—and you found THE perfect one. Yay! But did you know that the dress fitting process can be just as (if not more) important? Take it from this designer-turned-Bride whose dress fitting we’re getting a behind the scenes peek at today, along with her 5 tips to make the process smooth as ever. Clary Pfeiffer captured it all and we’re straight up drooling over the detail—that bow! See it all here.

From the Bride… I wanted my gown to be simple yet novel. My business partner and I decided on a form-fitting spaghetti strap gown with a scooped neckline and low back. We sourced the fabric locally in New York City and loved the embroidery on mesh because it wasn’t a typical bridal lace. It reminded me of architectural elements in the city that I see and love everyday. We lined it in a nude so you could see the details in photographs. I’ve always loved the femininity of a bow, so we crafted a removable structured bow belt in ivory silk wool. The bow accentuated my waist and offered an element of surprise when I turned around. What is so cool about my wedding gown is that many of the fabrications were repurposed fabrics from previous projects! It was special knowing that nothing went to waste and we were able to create a beautiful gown.

5 Tips for a Smooth Dress Fitting Process

Take a walk and have a seat

When trying on your dress, it’s important to think about the activities at your wedding: are you able to walk in it? Sit in it comfortably? Can you dance in it? Make sure you think ahead. Relay this information to your seamstress so she can make the changes accordingly.

Choose your shoes

It’s always best to make the dress longer than you’d want and then hem it to the perfect length at the very end of your fittings once you’ve determined what shoes you’ll wear. You don’t want to risk the hem being too short!

Bras matter

At your first fitting, you can work with your seamstress to determine what type of bra would be best for the dress. Some dresses may need pasties, some dresses may need more support or padding. At your next fitting, determine the bra you want to wear and fit it with the dress for a perfect fit.

Know your angles

We made a custom gown for a bride who wanted an embellishment on one side of her dress. We asked her which side would be photographed the most and decided on her right side because she will be standing that way at the altar. Think about where you will be photographed and make sure your embellishments and best features will be showing!

Speak up!

You know your body best and if there is something that looks off to you, don’t be afraid to ask questions and make changes.

Wedding Registry Trends from Food52

Original Source: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/typepad/style_me_pretty/~3/ntNYslDBtK4/

There are some items that are registry givens (KitchenAid mixer, we’re looking at you) but what about the trends of right here, right now? Food52 is sharing their picks that are shining extra bright for today’s brides-to-be. Some are classics that will always stand the test of time and others are just, well, extra special for 2017. Either way, they’re wedding registry winners in our books – take a look!

Long-Lasting Basics

When you find those solid workhorses for your kitchen and for your table, you don’t stray, you’ll be using these pieces forever! It’s never a bad idea to invest in the classics: cookware, tools, glassware, and dinnerware.

Mixed Metals

We’re seeing a lot of glimmer and shimmer these days – copper and brass have an old-school vintage feel while bringing a modern shine to the living room and kitchen. We’re loving it on flatware and barware.

Wood

A touch of wood (without going full on cabin-chic) brings a welcomed warmth to a new home. Sprinkle it here and there with wooden boards and generous serving bowls.

Multitaskers

With minimalism all the rage, couples are paring down their homes. Kitchen tools that multitask (like a baking steel good for the oven and the stovetop) do more while taking up less space.
