Translating Personal Style into Bridal Style - Part II

Last week, we discussed the world of the energetic, boisterous, spitfire Glam TomboyToday, part 2 of my series on how to translate your personal style into your wedding design and look continues with the BUSINESS BEAUTY:
The Business Beauty is refined, cultured, loyal to a specific aesthetic and exudes swank.  Designer handbags, understated yet exquisite jewelry and blazers are staples in her wardrobe.  Yet, she also enjoys inserting menswear influences here and there.  It's never a problem for her to take an in-the-office look and turn it into high fashion.  For her it's always quality over quantity, but she still loves to make a statement.

If you're a Business Beauty, consider these inspirations for your wedding:

Tradition is preferred in this case, but a little twist here and there is still acceptable.  Push stark white aside and lead with creamy ivory or perhaps even beige, over black.  Infuse elegant tradition via gold accessories, mirrors and gardenias.  Focus on clean lines and simplicity.  Feature a bold-colored fondant wedding cake along with vintage sweets for your guests to enjoy on the ride home.  Work with your photographer to show off your jet-setter status and don't forget to incorporate devices ... after all, they play a major role in how you take care of business.  Finally, instead of votives, do tapers.  Instead of crystal, do milk glass.  Instead of a DJ, do live musicians.  Remember ... your wedding should be a reflection of who you are as opposed to what trends, critics and magazines specifically call for.  Congratulations, Business Beauty
