Getting married? Celebrate your big day with ideas inspired by Hollywood! As we continue our Glam Slam Wedding Week, Stephanie Davila, Senior Editor of InStyle Weddings, shows you how.
WITH THIS RING:
Pink Diamonds are the biggest ring trend right now. Ben Affleck started the craze in 2002, when he popped the question to then girlfriend Jennifer Lopez with a blush-colored solitaire from jeweler-to-the-stars Harry Winston. Now the girly hue has reemerged, according to InStyle Weddings - thanks to Portia de Rossi and Mariah Carey, whose rings feature stunning pink pavé accents.
DITCH THE PASSPORT!
Domestic nuptials are gaining momentum thanks to stars who have said, "I do" stateside. Beyoncé and Jay-Z tied the knot in NYC; Mandy Moore exchanged vows with Ryan Adams in Savannah, GA. and model Adriana Lima eloped with Marko Jaric in Jackson Hole, WY. Pick your favorite U.S. getaway, then get planning.
KEEP IT SIMPLE
Whether adhering to a strict budget or tracking their carbon footprint, many couples are moving away from the manicured opulent centerpiece. Grouping understated arrangements that have an effortless fresh-from-the-garden feel is the hotter than ever, according to Sarah Jessica Parker's go-to florist, Todd Rigby of VSF in NYC.
WEDDING PARTY STYLE
InStyle Weddings suggests a recession chic idea - wear your wedding gown again! Stars like Anne Hathaway and Jessica Biel instantly landed on the "best dressed" lists when they hit the red carpet in creamy dresses that could double as wedding gowns. Try the trend in reverse: if your gown isn't over-the-top, wear it again to a fabulous party.
As for the guys - move over, skinny ties. Full-bodied bowties are the hottest men's fashion accessory on the red carpet. Dapper gents like Brad Pitt and Kanye West have rocked this distinguished look at recent events. Stephanie says, "Have your groom follow suit!"
Have your flower girls go bright! Follow trendsetting toddler Suri Cruise and outfit the littlest members of your wedding party in bright colors like tangerine and canary. Stephanie suggests J.Crew's vibrant sundresses, which your mini maids can wear all Summer long.
Giving your bridesmaids something that's functional, fabulous and currently all the rage. President Obama gave Queen Elizabeth II an iPod during a recent visit. And Fergie gifted her bridesmaids with cashmere wraps from celeb-favorite shop, Intuition, during her Winter wedding to Josh Duhamel.
