In a season in which blogs and magazines are showcasing weddings featuring bright colors and bold trends, it’s easy to forget the simple beauty that an all white wedding creates, but we certainly haven’t.
That’s why we’ve gathered some of our favorite all white products (from a to-die-for birdcage veil to the perfect vintage inspired clutch) to help get you to get back to the basics for a wedding look that will truly stand the test of time. It’s a beautiful day for a white wedding…

We are LOVING the faux flowers trend that is quickly replacing traditional wedding bouquets this season. Whether you choose silk or paper, these flowers stay looking fresh regardless of the summer heat.
Faux flower bouquets are not just perfect for the ceremony and pictures. They can easily be transitioned to the ultimate centerpiece after your walk down the aisle and saved for a sweet keepsake reminding you of your wedding day for years to come.
I love seeing brides use traditional wedding elements in a non traditional way, and what could be more fun or girly than getting creative with flowers?That’s why I’ve gathered some of my favorite floral wedding accessories sure to inspire.
Just remember: The key to mastering the look is not being afraid to mix it up (hint: pair neutrals with a pop of color or create a look of artificial flowers with the real thing). From a bold bridal cuff to a classic chiffon clutch these pieces can be mixed and matched for any occasion.
Shop these floral wedding looks and more by checking out my “Flower Power” list on Tailored and leave me a comment and let me know which look you’re loving this season.

We know that shopping for your wedding can be an overwhelming experience, but we believe that it doesn’t have to be. That’s why we’ve set out to create a site that makes discovering and purchasing products for your Big Day, easier than ever, and to keep improving every day. But, we couldn’t do it without fabulous input from our Tailored brides like you!
We are excited to announce that over the next few weeks, we’ll be rolling out some big changes to Tailored… and the best part about our updates? All of the changes are directly related to things you’ve asked for!
So, be sure to check out what’s new and see if your idea is on our latest update list. As always, if you’ve got a suggestion you think is share worthy, let us know. We’ll continue building new features based on ideas submitted by the Tailored community.
The new Tailored Product Viewer is going to make shopping on Tailored more addicting than ever. Here are some of the requests we had from our users that inspired us:
“I want to browse through products in a certain section, category, or list quickly, but viewing them as thumbnails isn’t ideal.”
“I want to see bigger pictures.”
“I’d like to skip to the next image in shoes without having to go back to the list of all the shoe pictures.”
We’re excited to say that all these requests and more have been answered with this release!
The Tailored Product Viewer showcases products in a more beautiful, detail-oriented way.
Clicking on any product opens up the Product Viewer, which shows each product in a full size image in its own window, showcasing all the little details you are dying to see. (And you can still thumbs up or thumbs down a product, add it to a list, buy it, or share it, quickly and easily).
Who doesn’t love to browse?! The product viewer gives a whole new meaning to the term “window shopping” by allowing you to quickly navigate through our extensive gallery of products with the click of a mouse. We’ve added next & previous buttons to every image, so, whether you are browsing by veils, jewelry, or accessories, clicking “next” will take you to the next product in your desired category. Window shopping has never been this much fun!
Find something you like but want to see more? No problem! We’ve got you covered. You can use our new, fun keyboard controls to see different views of the products you love. Jump to the next or previous images in any collection by using the left and right arrows. Or, cycle through thumbnails of a product by holding “shift” and clicking the left and right arrows.
You can even thumbs up or thumbs down products right from your keyboard too. Just use the up/down arrows. Yes, it’s just that easy.
Want to know what other brides are liking, buying, and sharing? We’ve added a Product Activity Feed so you can view a product’s likes and see which brides’lists this product is featured in all in real time.
There is nothing better than sharing an awesome shopping find. That’s why we’ve added sharing buttons to the Product Viewer so you can easily add something to your Pinterest board or share it on Facebook, Twitter, or Google + to get instant feedback from your friends, family, and bridal party.
The next time you go to add a product to a list, you’ll notice we’ve streamlined the process. Just click the + symbol and you’ll see a pop up that shows your current lists and allows you to simply click once to add your fav products without missing a beat.
We’d love to hear your feedback on the new features, so feel free to leave a comment or visit our feedback page. Stay tuned for more new features in the coming weeks!

The color blue has been associated with weddings for centuries, even dating as far back as ancient Rome, when brides wore blue to symbolize love, modesty, and fidelity. There is something incredible about continuing a tradition with such history, but putting a modern twist on the custom and making it your own? That’s what makes it fun.
There’s nothing wrong with subtlety and keeping your something blue as a sweet surprise (think a hidden label on the inside of your dress, a garter, or wedding night lingerie) but incorporating your something blue in a more prominent way, like with this vintage blue rhinestone encrusted headband is an unexpected way to modernize your wedding day look.
Don’t be afraid to choose a daring shade! Baby blue and navy are classically beautiful, but in a bridal season where pops of color are taking center stage, why not take a chance with cyan or make a statement with sapphire? Pair your wedding gown with a fabulous peacock blue bridal clutch or take traditional white shoes and make them regal with royal blue shoe clips… the options are endless!
Browse these bridal blue looks and more now on Founder, Sara Morgan’s, “Something Blue” list on Tailored, and make your own list of fav finds to inspire you for your big day.
From the start of their sizzling on-set romance to that oh-so controversial Vanity Fair cover, Angelina and Brad have mesmerized the American public and media alike. But now that Brad has popped the question, it’s not their red carpet appearances or globetrotting adventures that are garnering all the attention… it’s their upcoming wedding!
There’s no doubt Brad and Angelina’s ever-expanding brood will play a large part in their wedding day, since the kids’ wedding wish was a huge motivator for their engagement.
