Vera Wang describes her latest collection as “sexy, sensuous, young, cool, and beaded.” The designer’s Fall 2015 collection is full of inspiration if you love tulle and volume, and aren’t afraid to show a little skin. Chantilly lace, silk organza embroidery, and architectural draping are found throughout the lookbook featured below. We’re drawn to the rose V-neck empire gowns with metallic appliqués and the beautifully beaded sheaths, but which would you wear?
New York’s Bridal Market showed many different trends and beaded detailing is one that we’re loving! This styled shoot from Modern Romance Productions gets ahead of the Fall 2015 trend with embellished, flowing gowns from Bisou Bridal and jewelled headpieces.
The pinks in the Le Gateau Bakeshop desserts and the greens of the Design by Dainty stationery offer feminine touches that are both romantic and classic. Vancouver’s vistas are on full display from the top of the Shangri-La Hotel adding a contemporary feel to the shoot.

We love this sweet bouquet filled with sepia-toned roses, pink snapdragons, and sage-hued leaves. Bouquet by: Brittany Knapp Floral and Event Design.
Last week, we posted photos from the 2014 WedLuxe Wedding Show entrance. This week, we’re sharing more goodies from last year’s event!
The La Vie en Rose Café, was presented by The Fairmont Royal York Hotel and Frank Rea of Forget Me Not Flowers, Oakville and designed in partnership with our editorial team. Café concept, branding, and artwork (cart awnings, menus, signage, etc.) was the brainchild of Rebekah Cuff, WedLuxe Art Director. Frank Rea brought the café concept to life with his room design and floral magic!
Admission to our one-of-a-kind Ladurée-inspired pop-up café was included with every ticket and allowed guests a decadent haven where they could relax and indulge! When guests entered, they received a bakery box that they could fill with sweet and savoury pastries of their choosing from French-inspired food carts. Complimentary tea and coffee was served at mirrored café-style tables adorned with fresh flowers.
The main focal point of the café was a 17ft replica of the Eiffel Tower made of French macarons created by The Fairmont Royal York (our host property). Wasn’t it STUNNING!?
The café was decorated with white Louis Ghost chairs with custom vinyl chair backs, French vintage posters, custom menus, and more. Our generous sponsor Contemporary Furniture Rentals Inc. provided the café furniture. Cafe carts and patio furniture were provided by Forget Me Not Flowers, Oakville. Dance Floor Décor provided custom vinyl chair backs and floor decals (with artwork by Rebekah Cuff of WedLuxe).
Flower lovers take note, next week we’ll be sharing photos from our “Le Marché Aux Fleurs” flower market.
