Happy Memorial Day!
by Brides of Oklahoma May 31
Inspired by an obviously patriotic palette to celebrate Memorial Day, we’ve paired items that we love in shades of red, white and blue! From the elegance of stark white to dreamy soft blue tones and the bold and beautiful romance of red, we hope everyone will find something that they love about each of these boards.
Look red hot in this fabulous red dress from Alexia Designs, available locally at Bridal Classiques in Tulsa. You’ll look radiant in these stylish heels by Stuart Weitzman. You may not have known that these red Chinese lanterns are a symbol of good luck and we think they really make a statement strung from trees outdoors. And, we just love the idea of dressing up old wooden farm tables with beautiful china! This red and white combo from Vietre Rosso Vecchio is available from B.C. Clark in Oklahoma City. For centerpieces, consider an arrangement of giant, red ranunculus and for a unique beverage station, opt for filling the tailgate of an old vintage red truck with barrels of ice and drinks of your choice!
Simple and refined, you can’t go wrong with this stunning white Amsale couture gown with pockets! It lends itself to primness or informality, depending on the decorum. Dress it up and add formality with this Vera Wang china with gold detailing or opt for a modern and relaxing atmosphere with white lounge furniture like that shown from Mood Party Rentals in Oklahoma City. Clusters of white florals in glass vases like that shown work well for any occasion and we absolutely love the subtlety of the design patterns on this white on white, multi-tiered cake from Amy Cakes in Norman!
Reem Acra bridal boasts beautiful wedding gowns in ice blue! We love this ultra-fitted, mermaid style gown with modest crystal embellishments and tulle train. Find Reem Acra locally at J.J. Kelly Bridal Salon in Oklahoma City. An unadorned pale blue clutch is the perfect accessory! Integrate the color into the men’s attire by finding the right neck tie. This classic, light blue tie with navy and white stripe is from J. Crew. For an elegant bouquet, pull together voluminous blue hydrangeas. And, don’t overlook adding color to the invitations as well. The blue invite shown is from the Crane fine paper collection, sold at various local retail outlets including No Regrets, RSVP Stationery & More, Paper N’ More, and Red Fox Paperie of Oklahoma City and Occasions in Norman. Enjoy!
