Translating Personal Style into Bridal Style - Part I

I've always believed your wedding should be a reflection of who you are as opposed to what trends, critics and magazines specifically call for.  In the grand scheme of things, there really are no wrong answers for brides-to-be.  Whatever you like is perfect!  So, I've been working on this four-part series on how to translate your personal style into your wedding design and look.

The series will feature ladies who are not “real” brides, but have inspired me via a bold sense of style and each week I'll share my thoughts on the direction this type of woman should take in planning her wedding.  Sounds like fun, right?

Without further adieu, let's get started with the GLAM TOMBOY:

The Glam Tomboy is energetic, sometimes boisterous and can be a spitfire for sure.  Boyfriend jeans and studded jackets are staples in her wardrobe.  Yet, she's easy-breezy, chill and relaxed, able to go up against the best of 'em when it comes to glamming it up and showcasing her femininity.  It's never a problem for her to pull out the Christian Louboutins and Hermès Collier de Chiens.  She loves showing off her versatility and isn't afraid to turn heads.

If you're a Glam Tomboy, consider these inspirations for your wedding:

I just adore the idea of  non-traditional bridal style.  Sure it might raise a few eyebrows, but isn't that what most glam tomboys live for?  Instead of the mermaid lace gown and satin Stuart Weitzman pumps, layer on a denim shirt or jacket complemented by a mean pair of cowgirl boots or nude Christian Louboutin platforms.  Go against the grain with a colored fondant wedding cake and signature cocktails featuring pop-sickles.  Work with your photographer to select fun locations that showcase your hobbies or dates you and your fiance have gone on while courting.  Instead of a candy buffet, ask your wedding planner to design a confetti bar for an exit just as magnificent as your entrance.  Remember ... whatever you like is perfect.  Congratulations, Glam Tomboy
