Did you tune in to the Oscars last night and think, “What a beautiful gown?!” or “How can I pull off that color?” Well we did too! We thought, let’s use the red carpet as a source of inspiration for you and your upcoming nuptials or any special event for that matter!
For color inspiration we looked at Red Hot, Nudes and the uber chic Royal Purple trends. Incorporate these colors in your next event, separately or together. Think of red for an intimate and vintage wedding with different hues of red paired with ivory and black. Loving the purple? Combine it with shades of grey to modernize the look. Feeling adventurous? Pair the two together and watch the two come to life in jewel tones and a spark that will set you apart from everyone. Translate nudes into sheer peaches, pinks, and ivory for a soft romantic palette.
Not sure of a silhouette for your bridesmaids? This Reese Witherspoon dress looks elegant and the color is flattering on everyone. What about the red dress on Selena Gomez for your engagement party? A nude/goldish color a la Halle Berry, for the bridal shower would compliment any sun kissed skin.
We also noticed tons of costume-esque jewelry on the red carpet. We especially loved the necklace on Nicole Kidman! This makes for a great statement piece if your dress is a simple and elegant silhouette. Not sure what to gift your girls? Give your bridesmaids colorful cocktail rings as a thank you gift.
