Every Bride knows the age-old tradition, ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue’; and one of the easiest ways to incorporate ‘something blue’ is just by wearing blue shoes. It is as simple as that. So for this week’s fashion Friday, we are going to feature blue wedding shoes. Blue shoes add a pop of color and a little flare to you wedding day attire. Blue shoes are also very unexpected. If you are searching for a very specific shade of blue and are having bad luck, don’t get frustrated, you can contact your bridal shop or another local bridal shop, most of them dye shoes. You can pick out your favorite shoe style or bring in your own pair (just made sure they can be dyed), and either pick from a book of color palettes, or bring in your own color and they can match it. (Hint-Sometimes this is a cheaper route!) We have put our pinning skills to the test to find some fabulous blue wedding shoes for you.


Here are some of our favorite ‘something blue’ wedding shoes:

From our first phone consultation, I knew how particular Shauntrelle was with all her wedding details, down to the cakes and card box.  She knew exactly what she wanted and had almost everything planned—(I am sure it helps that she works in hotel sales too!)  Her Pinterest boards were exploding with gorgeous visions of greenery, blush roses, lanterns, ivory lace, gold chargers, gold chiavaris, mint wedding inspiration, and so much more.  We could not wait to dive in and start helping her finalize her plans.


With approximately 90 guests, mainly their closest friends and family, a gorgeous destination venue, and a palette of mint, ivory, and gold –everything culminated into a breathtaking event.  With overhead clouds looming, we were worried of having to move the ceremony indoors, but with a last minute “rain prayer” from Reverend Eddie, we were sure the bad weather would blow over.  Indeed, it did!  On the wedding day, the weather held out and the gorgeous ceremony was held at the gazebo overlooking the water.  The guests enjoyed a beautiful cocktail hour sipping mojitos and they all danced the night away and gathered in the fabulous photo booth to make more wonderful memories!


Our favorite moment of the evening was Shauntrelle and Chris’ personalized first dance to “I Thought I Loved You Then,” by Brad Paisley.  The couple dubbed in special vows to each other that played over the lyrics, and it was such a special momemnt that brought tears to everyone’s eyes.


Shauntrelle and Chris trusted in us with their final vision, details, and vendors, and we were so honored to be apart of their special day.

TGIFF… wait what? You’re probably reading that and saying, oh those Simply Couture Wedding Gals totally forgot to look over their grammar and edit that. But nope we meant it; it really is TGIFF… Thank God it’s Fashion Friday, of course! What would an exciting Friday be without our weekly fashion Friday blog? This week we are featuring veils. Veils are not for every bride, we understand that, but we still love them and think that if you’re on the fence about wearing on, this blog may help you finalize your decision on whether or not to wear one. We are featuring 3 different style veils, the cage veil, the fingertip veil, and the blusher veil.


The cage veil is a shorter styled veil. It frames and covers your face or a small portion of your face. This is to create a very simple, chic, and minimalist look. It is typically made from tulle or a wide net. It is typically embellished with some sort of flower, bling, or applique that sits in your hair. The best way to wear this style veil is to let it fall just below the edge of your nose.


Here are some of our favorite cage veils:


The fingertip veil is probably the most wide known and popular style of veil. This veil is typically what most brides envision when they think about a veil. This veils falls bellow the hips and extends to the fingertips. (Hence the name.) You can wear a fingertip veil on the crown of your head, slightly behind the crown of your head, or if you’re wearing your hair up than just above your updo.


Here are some of our favorite fingertip veils:


The blusher veil is any veil that covers your face. It is made from tulle, and can come in varying lengths, from your chin, shoulders, and even to our fingertips. The blusher veil also doubles as a double-tiered veil because of its two layers of tulle; one layer to cover your face, and the other layer a draped behind your head. A blusher veil should be fastened to the crown of your head.

I do not even know where to begin!  This is truly a wedding planner and client meeting for the history books..I met the bride, Tracie, at a bridal show I was invited to attend by our friend Nicole at Bridal Couture of Boca, and out of the hundreds of ladies I met that day, Tracie contacted me.  (Actually.. I think we were chatting before this via email, but she came to visit at the bridal show…it has been over 2 years so not sure the real story is “real” anymore.. ha!)  After chatting back and forth via email, we setup a consultation one night at a local Starbucks.  Tracie spotted me in the corner of the coffee shop and we instantaneously “clicked.”  Our love of black, white and neon color pops, along with polka dots and dry humor was a match made in planning heaven.  After an almost 2 hour consultation, Tracie decided to book me!  (I was honored and ready for the challenge).

We then had another consultation where she brought in the “big guns,”–Mr. B!  After meeting with them both, Mr. B had one qualm… “Make Tracie happy and be her therapist, her planner, her friend, etc… so I don’t have to hear about all the wedding details.”  I obliged after some laughs, and they signed the contract.  ….and so it began!    If I called ATT to check the amount of texts, or scanned through my email account, I am sure a 1k+++ number would pop up, but I would not change it for the world!  Tracie always used to say if she didn’t get a text or email from me daily she would “text or email me a stupid question (that she probably knew the answer to) just to get a response from me.”  She most definitely suffered from wedding planning withdrawal.  Hahahah!

After almost 18 months of full service wedding planning, we pulled together one of the most fabulous soirees in town!  We went from a glam hollywood theme, and narrowed it down to modern classic black and white themed wedding with a pop of ombre hot pink and touches of polka dots.  The wedding was in October, and guests are STILL raving about it to this day.  The vendors made the night, indeed!  We had a few aces in our back pockets (other than ourselves), including  Poirier Photography, Vision DJ’s, David Sutta Films, Orange Blossoms Florals, Got Smiles Photobooth, A Classy Affair Vintage Rolls Royce, Amazing Event Rentals, and  bakery to the stars–Divine Delicacies Cakes.  We also put together one HELL of a candy buffet fit for a candy junkie!  Our favorite moments were:  Tracie’s walk down the aisle, Mike’s fraternity dance (dedicated to Tracie), seeing the black “sexy” vases (wink, wink)!

I could not say more about this fabulous couple!  We have laughed together, we have been angry together, we have cried happy and sad tears, we have had one hell of a long journey that I would never change.  The wedding day was nothing short of amazing, with the ceremony being held at The Bonnet House Museum and Gardens, and the reception following at The Signature Grand.  We LOVE YOU MR AND MRS B!!!

Below are the photos(and details galore… our specialty) to document our journey springing to life:
