Wedding Tip #1: Retro Chic

Now that you have found the perfect engagement ring, the planning begins. If you’re looking for something to make your special day especially yours, try weaving a subtle vintage theme throughout the details of the affair.

The explosive popularity of the television series Mad Men continues to influence today’s pop culture and Retro is a hot trend for the fall. It can also offer a unique style to a home spun wedding or simply add some old-school style to the reception.

If you’re feeling extra inspired or daring, choose a tea length wedding dress, or see if your grandfather still has that old tuxedo in his closet. Make it your own with new shoes and accessories to give it a more modern take and avoid playing dress up.

Or try having a cookie bar to accompany your wedding cake. Not only is it a good alternative for the kids, but it is the perfect excuse to decorate the dessert table with retro-style milk bottles. It will be a unique touch, reminiscent of the days when milk was delivered to your doorstep.

For weddings held outdoors, try lighting the walkway with antique lanterns to help give the setting a country feel. Tie ribbons around the bottom in your wedding colors to add a more personal touch.

And for those who are die hard fans of a retro themed wedding, get going from the very start by selecting a vintage inspired engagement ring. The single solitaire diamond concept with a modern twist is perfect for the bride who wants a little flare with this timeless style.

ABC’s Bachelorette Soon To Be Single No More

Ali Fedotowsky pairs her diamond engagement ring with a designer dress.

The latest bride-to-be from the ABC reality show has revealed that she is leaning towards walking down the aisle in a gown from designer Monique Lhullier.

Fedotowsky, who recently revealed her engagement to Roberto Martinez, also from season six of “The Bachelorette,” told Us Magazine that she likes the “flowiness” of Lhullier’s designs.

Wedding details have begun to leak after Fedotowsky had been seen flashing her diamond engagement ring around town. The ring, that Martinez presented her with on the season finale, is a 3.03 center asscher cut diamond, accented with 184 round cut diamonds. As we have said before.

Asscher cut has become increasing popular around Tinsel Town, and this particular diamond is set onto a platinum band. Other stars, such as Megan Fox, Emily Blunt, and Carrie Underwood have also favored platinum settings during this summer of celebrity weddings.
The two have been rumored to be considering an elopement, as opposed to the wedding they had originally planned, and while Lhullier’s designs are often admired for their simplicity, there is nothing simple about Fedotowsky’s engagement ring. Not that we would begrudge Ali a little sparkle. After all, every bride is entitled to some indulgence and a lot of happiness.
