How to: Wed in Style

I love the direction that the local Nashville Lifestyles Wedding mag chose to go with their "rock candy" cover showing of blinding bling in a sea of candy! Go get yourself a copy! Here are a few photos from our editorial and some extras that we shot for the story.

FYI, at Panache, we do have some clients who have expressed interest in our assistance with styling them for their big day. We have a consulting package where we help you pick out a dress and accessorize yourself and your bridesmaids as well as put together a honeymoon wardrobe and we pack for you! Complete with each outfit wrapped in tissue and lavender smelling sachets. You can find our contact information here.

Whether you have a vintage themed wedding or a day at the beach planned, the weight, length, fabric of the dress and the accessories you choose should all fit the overall feel of your wedding. I've been to weddings where the bride had a satin heavy evening dress for a day wedding, outside. It contradicted the easy, breezy feeling of the decor and she looked miserably hot. So, dress for your personality and the special day you have planned!
Salome: vintage bride
Holly: Bohemian Bride
Laurenne: Destination Bride
A cotton dress for a beach wedding. Pefection.
Uptown and Downtown Bride
Salome: Country bride
Laurenne:  Downtown Bride
Gorgeous couture mini from Jessica Maros Couture. Just the thing for an urban, unconventional bride.
Salome: Old Hollywood
My personal favorite, Salome, here as an Old Hollywood glamazon.
Olia Zavozina gown
For the sophisticated bride with an affinity for clean lines. A custom alternative to a J. Crew factory-made gown. An Olia Zavozina creation.

TIP: Post wedding festivities, your dress will be in need of some deep cleaning, and I have discovered where all the bridal shops in town and any well-dressed people in the "know" go to get their duds (gowns, satin shoes, beaded bags or tuxes) restored to "like new" conditon. OAKWOOD CLEANERS (615-620-6095) is the best place in town! In fact, since taking my own clothes there, I've come to find out that some of the most fashion-forward and meticulous people I know, take there clothes there. So, I'm passing it on to can trust your everyday wear or finest frippery to them and they work wonders! Tell them Kyah sent you!
