Design Concept: Soft Latte

This board is inspired by last week’s beautiful Monique Lhuillier gowns. The soft tones of this edgy gown teamed with gorgeous coffee coloured pearls and cream merino wrap are just about perfect to me!

This board is all about keeping a neutral colour palette and playing with different textures. I love how the use of soft golds and creams give a slight vintage feel. And isn’t that picture of the library steps just amazing?

Monique Lhuillier Fall 2009

Monique Lhuillier will always be one of my favourite bridal designers. Her designs are always so feminine and classic whilst also being so innovative. She was hugely influential in starting the sash and lace trends of that took the bridal world by storm in 2005 and for me, her work just seems to get better and better. This new collection is so beautiful it makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.

And how stunning are those single tier catherdral length veils? Very. New trend I wonder?
