“Step outside the box and create a fresh color palate. Choose colors that speak to the time of year you’re getting married, your dress and even the venue. If you opt to stay more on the classic side, add a dash of color in an unexpected place”

Carla Hall  From Bravo’s “Top Chef,” ABC’s “The Chew” and More

“To make your flavors more unique, do something edible and local. When you have guests coming n from out of town, what’s that special thing in the area that you can get? I love the idea of things like sweet and savory popcorn, fired nuts, pralines — things like that. Think of something that your guests will enjoy on the plane or the ride home.”

“I’m a firm believer that a bride should wear the jewelry that makes her feel like her most beautiful, confident self on her big day. On my wedding day, that meant wearing vintage-inspired designs and crystals details for that classic bridal look I loved, Some bolder, modern brides may opt for a trend-forward statement, and others might choose delicate and minimalist designs. And for something truly one-of-a-kind, our Color Bar is the destination to create something that feels just right for her. At Kendra Scott, we thoughtfully design pieces that a bride will wear on her big day, and every day after.”




Personalize Your Wedding With Tips From 4 Industry Influencers Randy FenoliRandy Fenoli Fashion Designer and from TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress”

“When it comes to a bride defining her bridal style, she should think of the silhouette she’s looking for, the venue, the theme. Is it country chic, bohemian, or formal? It really comes down to the bride’s vision.
Once there was a bride who was in tears as she told me it was her 7th bridal salon and she couldn’t find a dress. She explained that she was having a barn wedding and couldn’t find a dress she liked that would fit her theme. I asked what she saw herself wearing and she mentioned a dress with bling, but that it didn’t go with her theme. I then went and pulled a dress by Monique Lhullier. She tried it on and started crying and said “Oh my gosh, I love this dress, I love this dress.” I told her to wear it, throw a chandelier up in the barn and make it work! And that’s what brides have to do!”
