‘Elegance and simplicity is an art’ – Audrey Hepburn

Each one of us has our own natural charm and personal style. These show in the way we dress, the make-up we use, how we move or even the way we talk.  What we all seem to share in common is that we acknowledge that there are certain styles that never seem to fade, an elegant and simple style, such as that of Audrey Hepburn.

You can choose an elegant and simple style like hers for your wedding. In the same way as you take care that every detail of the wedding is harmonious you can make sure that your look is natural and elegant on your wedding day. The secret keep it simple, just a few touches and accessories here and there.

In today´s post I have chosen some inspiring images of Audrey Hepburn, in all her beauty, and a choice  of wedding dresses, hair styles, bouquets… that in my opinion reflect that elegance and simplicity I have been talking about. Hope you like them!

These wedding dresses are from three international designers (Jesús del Pozo, Hannibal Laguna and Oscar de la Renta) and they reflect how they each interpret elegance and simplicity.

For the hair do I have chosen two very natural looks : wavy long hair and a simple plait.

Lilac : a delicate and subtle colour for your wedding day

I have chosen lilac today as the colour for a wedding. It is delicate,subtle and elegant just perfect to give your wedding a sweet, romantic touch. With the help of good wedding professionals, these inspiring ideas as well as others you may have, can be used as the starting point and adapted to help you turn your wedding into something unique, beautiful and special.

As always I recommend you pay attention to wedding accessories such as shoes, headdresses and wedding bouquet. They look great in shades of lilac, like this original headdress, and will certainly enhance your wedding dress.

Lilac is a lovely colour for your wedding reception and it blends in beautifully with other colours such as greens and pale yellows. In these two photographs they have chosen beautiful flower arrangements for the marquese and chinese paper lamps for the trees. They look great as does the simple and elegant flower arrangements on the tables or the delightful napkins with the menus inside.

You can also incorporate lilac to your wedding cake.  Look how cute those little birds look !! And for the final touch why not get your guests to write their good wishes for you as a couple, on cut out leaves in shades of lilac and peg them on to branches.

You can also add pink to your shoes to enhance your dress. Here are two pairs I have specially liked. What do you think about them ?

I think the bridesmaids would look lovely in shade of grey or camel with a pink waistband and a pretty bouquet, matching the bride´s bouquet.

Pink looks great in all sort of containers : crystal containers, silver, black or white china. I particularly like a simple flower arrangement with roses in jars and a flower on each guests napkin.
