Rustic Romance in Cape Cod

Jamie and Marcel’s love story began on the sands of the Jersey Shore, so it made sense that they would opt for a beach wedding. Marcel suggested Chatham Bars Inn and Jamie fell in love with the idea of a rustic beach wedding. Drawing inspiration from the store Anthropologie, Jamie sought out New England Country Rentals and Be Our Guest for mix-matched chairs, vintage love seats, and rustic crates to create her perfect setting. The color palette of peaches, pinks, and creams softened the vintage look of the rentals and added whimsical charm. SD Events made sure every detail of the day emulated Jamie’s vision of rustic romance.

Dressed to perfection, Jamie made her way down the aisle in a Vera Wang gown and met her soon-to-be-husband under a trellis of flowers. Guests enjoyed fresh oysters from the raw bar, mini lobster rolls,  and sipped on bellinis and Moscow mules while waiting for the bride and groom to make their debut. The Inn’s lawn was home to an oversized Sperry Tent where guests danced the night away under twinkling lights.

Spring 2015 Bridal Trends

Who better to talk to about bridal trends than the fabulous, bridal style guru, Beth Chapman of The White Dress by the Shore? Whether she’s at market or helping brides-to-be find the right look for their special day, the woman knows her stuff. Here are her favorite trends for this season:

Illusion backs/ plunging necklines: “Skin is in!” says Beth. “I’m seeing a lot of plunging necklines, and while not everyone is comfortable having their back completely showing, the illusion back allows more people to embrace the trend. The real newness comes in that the illusion back itself is skin color, and it gives the bride’s skin a more airbrushed and flawless appearance.”

Floral appliqués and feminine textures: “While lace has been popular for so many seasons, brides are moving away from all over lace and opting for these textural details instead,” says Beth. “It’s an evolution that is going more towards a textural feel with three dimensional elements to it. It’s a beautiful, feminine trend. Some people don’t want appliqués all over their dress and they tend to go for something that is more concentrated in a specific area, like the bottom of the dress or just the top. It’s a nice touch.”

Bridal separates and crop tops: “There is a very specific bride and type of wedding that works with this style,” says Beth. “It’s a hard look to pull off, you need an amazing figure and toned midriff to make it work. If you don’t feel comfortable wearing it for the actual wedding, I love it for a rehearsal dinner instead!”

Watercolor-inspired floral prints: “This is such a romantic and pretty way to incorporate color into your wedding in a softer way,” says Beth. “If you don’t want to embrace the trend with your dress, consider it for your bridesmaids’ dresses. It’s definitely a larger print, washed out floral.”
