It was Brigitte Bardot who famously wore a pink gingham dress when she got married in 1959. Being the style icon that she was, the trend she started caused a shortage of gingham fabric in France. For Spring 2015, gingham is again having a major revival. Last fall, designers like Michael Kors, Joseph Altuzarra and Oscar de la Renta all sent checked looks down the runway. While the new gingham nods to vintage All-American sensibility, the new fashion-forward version of the print is oversized and heavily textured.

We love the idea of incorporating gingham into your big day by wearing a gorgeous printed frock to your engagement or rehearsal party a la Madame Bardot, by having your groom wear it in his tie or jacket lining, or by using gingham in a table setting for a lighthearted accent at an outdoor summer wedding. Are you as check obsessed as we are?

EnglishRose1This WedLuxe editorial from our current issue is a rose lovers dream! The Troy Moth captured shoot features romantic, rose-filled floral displays and a slew of gorgeous gowns that are guaranteed to sweep you away. The garden conservatory at Casa Loma, a majestic castle in downtown Toronto, provided the perfect backdrop for the “English Rose” editorial the castle is also one of our favourite places in the city to say “I Do.”

Rebekah Cuff, WedLuxe Art Director, served as Art Director/Co-Producer for the photo shoot working with Floral Designer/Co-Producer Marta Urbanowicz of Fifth Element Group. Dawna Boot Makeup was the makeup artist for the feature and Fancy Face Inc. styled the model’s hair. A full list of the many talented creative professionals involved, including gown designer and retailer details, can be found at the end of the post.

Rosie and Jason’s wedding was inspired by Marie Antoinette and the couple’s love of all things French. Event designer Sandy Godfree of Art of the Party Design Inc. transformed the Rosewood Hotel Georgia into a garden oasis that echoed springtime in Paris for the occasion. The dreamy, 13-ft tall cherry blossom tree that decorated the centre of the head table will take your breath away! You can learn more about the couple’s day, captured by Hong Photography Studio, in the current issue of WedLuxe Magazine (Western Canada Edition) available on stands and online here: http://wedluxe.com/store/issue/ws-2015-the-floral-issue/
