The royal wedding of 2018 – What we know!

 

prince-harry-meghan-engagement-photo

Another Royal Wedding!!

OK, Let’s just be real here,when I heard that prince Harry was engaged I was uber excited! Picture it like this: me finding out about the engagement, me then pouring over the internet every chance I get to learn more about the bride to be, looking to see what dress she might wear, dreaming of a gorgeous english traditional chapel wedding, the bells, the gorgeous guests showing up as they step out of their cars and finally what the beautiful bride will wear. I am also imagining the fun ceremony that I know will truly be “prince harry” style and a fabulous, possibly nontraditional and modern feeling reception with more of a party vibe! Fast forward to the day of the wedding, me hunkering down on my cozy sectional with my British husband and my 9 year old daughter who is equally obsessed (5 year old isn’t quite there) glass of wine (not tea) in hand of course…and then being absolutely mesmerized, chills worthy moments as the ceremony begins and watching the unforgettable classic royal wedding. Feeling that sense of history, beauty and people watching before me.

We all know about their engagement that happened on November 27th, but let’s get to the nitty gritty on some of the latest details that we have heard about the wedding. We will be doing regular updates and details on the royal day as new facts become known. Cannot wait share more with you! Let’s get going…

Here’s what we know so far..

Date

Apparently there was a special briefing at Buckingham Palace just after their engagement announcement, officials revealed that the wedding will take place in may of next year. On Dec. 15, Kensington Palace did also confirmed that the wedding will take place on Saturday May 19th! 

Where

The ceremony will take place at beautiful Saint Georges Chapel at Windsor Castle. Kensington Palace spokesman Jason Knauf said “Windsor is a very special place for Prince Harry, and he and Ms. Markle have regularly spent time there during the last year,” “They are delighted that the beautiful grounds of Windsor Castle will be where they begin their lives as a married couple.”. As someone who has spent a fair amount of time in Windsor during my years in the UK , have seen and visited the castle up close and walked it’s grounds, it will be a fantastic, beautiful and meaningful location for the couple.

Who will attend

The Royal family of course, this includes Prince William and Princess Kate, and their children, as well as the Queen — will of course, be in attendance. Meghan’s mom Doria Ragland and dad Tom Markle will also be there! Some of Meghan’s celebrity friends from her show show she was on called ‘suits’ will also be in attendance. Also, Prince Harry has a highly-publicized friendship with former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama – Maybe we will see them there!

The engagement ring.

Prince Harry proposed to Meghan Markle with a custom engagement ring he designed for his bride-to-be.  The ring’s center stone hails from Botswana, a country with personal significance for the couple, and is flanked by two diamonds from the personal collection of Harry’s mother, the late Princess Diana. “The little diamonds on either side are from my mother’s jewelry collection to make sure that she’s with us on this crazy journey together,” Harry told the BBC’s Mishal Husain today in their first interview with the couple. “I think everything about Harry’s thoughtfulness and the inclusion of [Diana’s stones] and, obviously, not being able to meet his mom —it’s so important to me to know that she’s a part of this with us,” Markle said. “It’s incredibly special to be able to have this, which sort of links where comes from which is important to us. It’s perfect.” (scroll down past post to see photos of the ring below).

What will the bride wear.

Meghan has previously shared some of her fav wedding dress designers including Elie Saab (see my previous post here about Eli Saab) and J. Mendel, but right now it’s still a mystery who she’ll turn to for the big day and her gorgeous creation.

I personally think Meghan will chose an effortlessly chic gown with clean lines, possibly a simple yet modern edgy  take on the classic gown.She may go for some lace as whimsical Boho is all the rage and she is pretty on trend. What are your thoughts? Its all still speculation at this point, but super exciting to wonder what she will choose!

In closing

On a personal note and my thoughts of this union. I am really happy prince Harry has finally found the one he calls someone special! I know there is some speculation about the two of them together, but I actually think they are so well suited (no pun intended! ha!) together. I see a fun, very natural couple who actually seem to really truly be in love and it doesn’t feel staged or forced to me. I really can see how deeply in love they are and the way they look at one another. A great match, I think harry has ,as we all know..always had a “wild” streak and to find someone with a little pizzaz, style and spark to that side of him, but yet a true solid partnership. I approve and may they have many happy years together! As an american who married a brit I feel a kinship with her, such a fun dynamic in a American/British relationship.

More updates soon, until then..

Enjoy these photos of the lovely couple!!

 

Hugs!

Rent fabulous special occasion designer dresses at Rent the Runway.

rent-the-runway-1

This April my husband and I have a fancy big dinner for one of his clients to go to and I honestly cannot wait, just exciting to have an actual reason to dress up!! That hasn’t happened in a while!  Here’s the problem, I am currently feeling rather “uninspired” (to put it mildly!) by my closet (help!). I mean let’s face it, I am a stay at home mom, a pretty simple lady and honestly.. I don’t go to too many super fancy events, let’s just say my wardrobe looks a little sad and very “mall-esque” , lol. Not complaining, but this mama needs to take her look up a notch up!

Since I will probably only wear the dress once, I am now considering renting a dress a gorgeous designer dress for the occasion! After reading good reviews of Rent the Runway , I think it’s time to give it a try! Have you tried it? Loving the idea and it’s now really growing on me! Did you know they have a ton of dresses for rent that start at just $30??(And that includes designers like Monique Lhuillier, Milly, Trina Turk, Badgley Mishka and more of course!). Nice!

A few things really stood out to me that I loved as I browsed around the Rent the Runway website:

  • Real people upload pictures of themselves in the dresses which I think is amazing and super helpful when trying to select a size
  • When you rent a dress, you will receive two sizes to help ensure that the dress will fit. wow.
  • You can sort by so many different categories, including the level of formality, desired neckline, color, body type, occasion, etc.

Olivia Palermo Marries Johannes Huebl in Secret Ceremony & wears Carolina Herrera!

OLIVIA-PALERMO-WEDDING-DRESS-PHOTO-3

Yayy, It’s official! Despite the rumors that Olivia Palermo had wed her longtime boyfriend Johannes Huebl in a secret ceremony at City Hall last week, it appears that the duo had something else in mind. Well, kind of. Yesterday, Palermo and Huebl tied the knot in areal secret ceremony in Bedford, New York, then blogging about it on her website.

The announcement reads: “The two said their vows amongst only a handful of family members and closest friends as they were surrounded by ivy and blossoming flowers in a quiet park tucked away in Bedford, New York. We really wanted to keep this beautiful day very private and special to us and enjoyed the whole day with our family and two friends.”

As for the dress, everyone seems slightly surprised that Palermo opted for something more casual. You see, it wasn’t actually a dress at all, but instead..beautiful Carolina Herrera separates, à la a cashmere sweater, white shorts and a flouncy tulle skirt. Huebl wasn’t too shabby himself, white Marc Anthony Hamburg suit and all.  Very “Olivia” though..as she always sets the trends and has the most unique style,  is stunning  and so effortlessly chic in whatever she wears! In fact I was just flipping through a UK magazine this morning and it was all about alternative bridal gowns and the “seperates” look is very now.

In line with her preppy-with-a-twist off-duty style, Palermo chose a classic full-skirted silhouette, but what looked like a very traditional gown was in fact a light cashmere sweater and tulle skirt, worn over delicate coordinating shorts. Her shoes also ticked traditional and quirky boxes, being the same Manolo courts that Carrie Bradshaw married in at her civil ceremony for the Sex and the City movie, (not bought especially for the occasion, but in fact an old favourite) and also provided her essential “something blue”.

Fear not wedding watchers who were hoping for a much more elaborate couture confection – this is “part one – the civil ceremony” the couple noted. Meaning that part two is likely to satisfy all your fashion wedding desires.

Congrats to the gorgeous couple!

XOXO,

Kirstin @ Froufrou Le Bleu

Model Poppy Delevingne marries her longtime partner James Cook in London wedding!

Poppy-Delevingne-James-Cook-Wedding-Pictures-photos-1

Ok if you know me well, you know I love England and especially a good English wedding!! I married a Brit and sometimes I find myself mentally “re-doing” our wedding..imagining if we had a quintesential English wedding and how lovely that could of been, Oh the pims we would have drank, the smells of the English flowers and the amazing old Manor home we would have rented for the weekend along a little river in the Cotswolds! Ho-Hum, Oh don’t get me wrong, we just loved our wedding in Sausalito, Calif.., but the secret wanna-be Brit in me still longs for that imaginary wedding we never had across the pond. Luckily, we went to so many beautiful English wedding during my time living there and I cherish all the memories, traditions and sweet organic vibe of a good old English wedding! Hmm..Maybe someday we will renew our vows in the UK! Now that’s a great idea! More on that idea in the future! haha… 😉

So, I have clearly been a little out of the radar lately (yes…having kids can sometimes take a toll me on me with no “help”) and now that I am back to posting..I decided that posting this stunning wedding of Poppy Delevingne (London Model and Socialite see more about Poppy here) and James Cook , her lovely tall blonde husband was a great way to start the Summer!

Now on to the Details

Poppy Delevingne married her longtime partner James Cook at St Paul’s Church in Knightsbridge, London. The bride looked stunning in a custom-made Chanel Haute Couture gown (how dreamy is that dress!) — the model is especially close to the brand’s designer, Karl Lagerfeld — while younger sister Cara Delevingne wore an equally gorgeous white Chanel dress. Cara played the role of the doting maid of honor, holding on to Poppy’s gown and helping her enter the church, and Poppy shared a sweet smooch with her brand-new husband after tying the knot. Guests at the nuptials included former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell and fashion designer Matthew Williamson, but sadly missing was Poppy’s BFF Sienna Miller, who is currently filming American Sniper with Bradley Cooper in LA. It sounds like Sienna will have another chance to see her friend get hitched, though. There are also some great pics of their 2nd ceremony in Marrakech!

Poppy broke the news of her engagement to James last year by tweeting a photo of a bespoke red jewelery box by Anya Hindmarch with “Will you marry me?” etched on the inside. She shared photos of the gorgeous engagement ring soon after.

Scroll through below to see all of the beautiful photos. Congrats to the happy couple!

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis engaged!

 

 

 

mila-kunis-engagement-ring

 

 

Well, what do you know?! It appears that Ashton Kutcher’s quiet little romance with Mila Kunis has reportedly blossomed into an engagement!!

I knew they were up to something looking so in love and adorbs! The former “That ’70s Show” co-stars have never been shy about PDA since they began dating in 2012, but neither one has talked much about the relationship. Reps for both actors have been mum, with only a telltale photo of a diamond ring on Kunis’ left hand to fuel speculation she and Kutcher will soon be tying the knot!

I am so excited to hear more on the wedding plans and wondering what this absolutely gorgeous bride will wear! Very exciting!

ashton-mila-engaged

Um..I’m sorry, could she be any more gorgeous!!? We think not!

mila-kunis-engagedmila-kunis-engaged-1

And judging by how amazing she looked as a bride on the filmset of “Ted” with Mark Walberg, we can be assured she will surely sparkle as a real life bride she will soon be!

Can’t wait to see and hear more as the planning starts! No doubt I will be back with more info as it transpires!

Congrats to the happy and gorgeous couple!

Kelly Clarkson Weds Brandon Blackstock in gorgeous country wedding & in a Temperley gown!

kelly-clarkson-wedding-pic-2Now ask me if I am a Kelly Clarkson fan and my answer would probably be no. Not because she isn’t talented, believe me, I know she is! No, it’s just not my style of music and..I never really was an American Idol fan so I guess I never gave her a chance.  That probably isn’t fair being that she has really come a long way from that little American Idol girl with with the side swept 90’s brown bob! Can I just say, what a gorgeous and genuine person she seems to have become and as I look at her wedding, everything about it screams down to earth, fresh, earthy and touch of “vintage country” chic, I just can’t help but fall on love with everything about her & her wedding. The smokey mountain location was just stunning! I’m a mountain person myself at heart and nature brings me peace and serenity like nothing else, Iv’e spent time in the Smokeys and it is just so beautiful! My favorite places in this world are small, relaxed little towns where a person can just be themselves amongst the trees! This is what I see in this couple, their wedding and rightfully so! You can tell lots about this couple from all the little special touches they chose. Beautiful! Oh and let us not forget Kelly’s romantic lacey Temperley dress! Swoon! More about that down below..

Now onto the details of this lovely fete!

According to people magazine, Kelly and Brandon were rumored to be thinking they may elope after they cancelled their original wedding plans. “Kelly confirmed the happy news via social media on Monday, Tweeting “I’m officially Mrs. Blackstock :-) We got married yesterday at Blackberry Farms in TN, the most beautiful place ever”!”

The duo originally planned to have an earthy outdoor wedding in the backyard of their Nashville home that they share, but life got in the way and they opted for a more low-key event.

“Our whole life is a celebration” the former American winner said. “We would rather have an intimate moment that’s special”. I wholeheartedly agree Kelly!

Kelly wore a gorgeous Temperley London Bridal gown…a beautiful “country chic” long sleeved lacy dress…with lots of Vintage touches. So girly, pretty and delicate! Can I just say that Alice Temperley is one of my all-time favorite designers! Just a sight to behold and a gorgeous dress!

Enjoy these gorgeous pics and a huge congrats to Kelly and Brandon!

XOXO,

John Legend weds model Chrissy Teigen in a fabulous retro inspired wedding in Lake Como, Italy!

john_legend-chrissy_wedding-closeup

Congratulations go out to Mr. and Mrs. Legend!

I know I am almost a month late on this post, but just had to post this gorgeous wedding!! I just can’t stop looking at the photos. Loving the whole vintage, elegant, retro vibe..

The ceremony took place in Lake Como, Italy, in front of family and friends, and  the bride wore a strapless ivory Vera Wang gown. She changed into a second Wang gown for the reception.

Legend and Teigen have been together for seven years, and got engaged in 2011 during a vacation in the Maldives. Earlier this year, she told People that Legend would perform “All of Me,” which he wrote about her, at the wedding.

Now let’s talk about Chrissy’s gorgeous dress, OMG!

Soon after she posted the pic, Vera Wang in a statement said Teigen actually wore three dresses by the famous designer on her big night.

“The ceremony gown was an ivory strapless open back, V-neck ballgown with lifted tulle skirt and tiered flange, hand-cut petal embroidered detail,” the release said. “The reception gown was an ivory strapless mermaid gown with micro pleated bodice and sheared organza full skirt.”

Last but not least, the after-party gown “was a crimson strapless mermaid gown with hand-draped bodice and inverted flange skirt with embroidered crystal wheat detail.”

Teigen gave her fans a few more details from the lavish wedding, including not being able to hold back tears during a special song.

Congrats to the happy couple! Now let’s enjoy these stunning pics! What a beautiful couple.

XOXO,

Chic, Vintage, Inspiration – Grace Kelly’s gorgeous wedding day look!

grace-kelly-bride-vintage-mantilla-veil-classic-bride

Grace Kelly is one of my favorite iconic beautiful brides of all time! Her sense of timeless beauty and elegance is something that every bride aspires to. I just can’t stop staring at her wedding photos, they exude a soft, angelic quality and her beauty is so immense, it’s unreal. She is definitely one of my all-time favorite vintage inspiration looks ever!  I mean, look at the amazing detail in the lace, pearls in the bodice of her dress and the fantastic detail in her veil. Not to mention her pretty face just glowing extreme beauty and class! Really stunning..a true beauty..I could go on and I am sure you could too..

Where did this beautiful gown come from??

Grace’s wedding gown for the religious ceremony was a gift from MGM. It was created by Helen Rose, MGM’s costume designer and personal friend of Grace. The nearly 320 yards of lace used in the bodice and train was antique, and had been purchased from a museum for an estimated $2,500. In addition, Ms. Rose used 25 yards of silk peau de soie, 25 yards of silk taffeta, and approximately 100 yards of silk tulle. The gown had a high, stiffened lace collar with a close-fitting bodice and arms. It buttoned down to a silk cummerbund, and then descended in a perfect bell shape to the floor. The back of the gown was a marvel, the silk skirt dividing in such a way that the antique lace and tulle seemed to flow from the waist into a long, graceful train. The three petticoats beneath were so well made that the designer admitted they could have been worn separately as evening dresses. Each was decorated with tiny blue bows, “something blue”. The bodice and Grace’s lace Juliet cap were re-embroidered with seed pearls, as were her shoes. Ninety yards of tulle tied with bows of taffeta and lace constituted her veil.

Who was Grace Kelly?!

Grace Patricia Kelly was born on November 12, 1929 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her parents were John Brendan Kelly, the son of Irish immigrants, and Margaret Katherine Majer, the daughter of German immigrants. Grace’s mother Margaret, a former fashion model, had studied physical education at Temple University in Philadelphia and was the first woman to be head of the Physical Education Department at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Grace’s father, known as Jack, had won three gold medals in rowing in the 1920 and 1924 Olympics. Jack had started his work career as a bricklayer and after serving in World War I, he created a bricklaying business that made him a millionaire.

Besides Grace, the Kellys had three other children: Margaret Katherine, known as Peggy, born on June 13, 1925; John Brendan, Jr., known as Kell, born on May 24, 1927, and Elizabeth Anne, known as Lizanne, born June 25, 1933. Grace’s brother Kell followed his father’s athletic footsteps and competed in rowing at the 1948, 1952 and the 1956 Summer Olympics. He won a bronze medal in the 1956 Olympics. Interestingly, Grace’s son Albert participated in bobsledding in the Winter Olympics of 1988, 1992, 1994, 1998 and 2002 and has been a member of the International Olympic Committee since 1985.

Grace Kelly was a well known film actress before her marriage. Among her films are: High Noonwith Gary Cooper, Mogambo with Clark Gable, three Alfred Hitchcock films: Dial M for Murderwith Ray Milland, Rear Window with James Stewart, and To Catch a Thief with Cary Grant, The Country Girl with Bing Crosby and William Holden for which Grace won an Academy Award for Best Actress, and her last film High Society with Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra.

Tragically, Princess Grace died on September 14, 1982 from injuries received in an automobile accident. :-( We miss her dearly. Such a tragedy..

Enjoy these lovely pics to remember this very memorable wedding and such an aspirational look.

Enjoy!,

XOXO,

Kirstin @ FroufrouLe Bleu

Celebrity Inspiration – Brazilian model Caroline Trentini weds in custom Oliver Theyskens bridal dress!

Brazilian model Caroline-Trentini-married-Fabio-Bartelt-custom-Olivia-Theyskens-11

When I decide to do a post on weddings I love in the media, they have to be a wedding where I IMMEDIATELY gasp with a “wow”!! When I first saw these pics in Vogue last year on model Caroline Trentini’s wedding…I did just that! Swoon!!! After announcing their engagement on Twitter last November 2011, model Caroline Trentini and photographer Fabio Bartelt were married March 3rd, 2012 at a church in Santa Catarina, Brazil. Trentini wore a dress and veil designed by Oliver Theyskens — with a bit of a resemblance to Kate Middleton’s wedding gown… Gorgeous is all I have to say!!

“When Caroline Trentini was fifteen, the model began a running joke with Olivier Theyskens that one day, he would design her wedding dress, and over the years the two playfully renewed the pact backstage at his shows and whenever they met. Oliver Theyskens approached the dress as a representation of the bride herself: a contrast, as he puts it, between strength and sweetness. He chose a dense gold satin coated in white pigment, which appeared faintly matte gray in the evening light in Itajaí, Brazil, the beachside town where the wedding took place and where Bartelt was raised. For a touch of delicacy, the dress was overlaid with white lace, forming a plunging neckline and gracefully slim sleeves. “The fabric is where something was happening,” Theyskens says, though the satin did not arrive from Italy until a week before the wedding.”

Let us gawk over these gorgeous pics!

Enjoy!

Hugs,

Kirstin @ Froufrou Le Bleu

Celebrity Inspiration – Kate Moss’s vintage inspired wedding dress and veil on a budget!


Ruche Wedding Collection

kate_moss_wedding-vintage-inspired-wedding-kate-moss-wedding-dress-kate-moss-bridal-dress-replica-4

Hands down – Looking back..Kate Moss’s dress and veil are one of my favorite vintage inspired weddings by far!  I just adored  everything about this wedding; it’s classically beautiful and so ethereal, I had to dedicate a post to it! At the end…I have added a few examples of similar dresses and veil you can find for a much cheaper price and still have her vintage chic style! Kate is the original boho chic style icon and I am in love with her unique style all her own.

On July 1st, 2011 Kate Moss married Jamie Hince, a guitarist for the Kills, at St Peters Church in Southrop, England in the Cotswolds countryside area. It was a gorgeous midsummer 1920’s Great Gatsby feel of a wedding and gorgeous! Kate’s dress was a beaded, fitted, sheath mermaid gown with a train and designed by close friend John Galliano. Every details was very Kate and loved that it was so fresh, delicate and so so pretty…

Let’s look at some pics, shall we? I am just swooning, aren’t you??!

Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis engaged!

Olivia_Wilde_with_fiance_Jason_Sudeikis

Ok so sue me if I am a couple weeks late on this news! ha! How did I miss this???  Let’s just say..motherhood and work take over sometimes and I even forgot to update myself with my adored celebrity news? How did this happen??!! Eek!

So, looks like gorgeous Olivia Wilde and boyfriend Jason Sudeikis are getting married! I first remember watching Oliva as she played Alex…a lesbian love interest of Marissa’s on the OC years ago (yes, I am sad..I watched the OC and I was over 30 at the time!).  I just have to say..she has really blossomed into an amazing actress, with so much grace and style…she has really come into her own these days!

“A spokeswoman for Wilde confirmed that the couple is engaged. Joy Fehily released no other details. The engagement was first reported by People.com. This will be the second wedding for both actors. Wilde finalized her divorce from documentarian Tao Ruspoli in 2011 after eight years of marriage. Sudeikis was previously married to “Pitch Perfect” screenwriter Kay Cannon. They divorced in 2010. Let’s hope this union sticks! Second time is a charm as they say..” as the Huffington post tells us!

Wilde, 28, rose to fame on TV’s “House M.D.” Her film credits include “Tron: Legacy” and “Cowboys & Aliens.” Sudeikis, 37, is a star of “Saturday Night Live.” (love how there is no mention of the OC here.. ;-)!). He hosted the MTV Movie Awards in 2011 and appeared in the film “Horrible Bosses” that same year.

No word yet on a wedding date, but you can bet we are excited to find out more details as they start releasing info! Yayy ,excited for Olivia and Jason and I wonder what plans they are making for their nuptials! Maybe something small since it’s a second wedding for both? We shall see!

Looking forward to sharing more news as time goes on! Keep checking back for more celebrity engagement and wedding news!
