Wednesday Wed-spiration! Sexy Senorita!

May 16th, 2012 | Julia Braime

It’s the middle of the week already!  Time flies when you are having fun eh?  Today, our regular guest blogger Katy of What Katy Did Next is back with a slinky slice of Latino wedding inspiration. 

.

I’m off to sunnier climes today too – taking a much needed break with the hubby to relax, recharge and soak up some vitamin D (hours hunched over a computer in the dead of night does nothing for bone density let me tell you)!  So whilst, I jet off, I’ll leave you in Katy’s capable hands.

.

Don’t worry though – I might be taking a break, but Brides Up North is very much on duty this week – as I’m leaving you with a full schedule of blog posts bursting with wedding pretty.  See you on the other side!

Katy says: Though I know it is hugely popular, I am not the biggest fan of the use of red in Weddings, I think it all depends on how you use it. Julia herself came up with this request at last week’s North East Tweet Up – something a little bit different, a classy Spanish/Latino red wedding – inspired by Julia’s love of the musical Evita. I jumped at the challenge hoping to make the colour red work for me.

.
I chose a sumptuous poppy red with a slightly orange hue to it, using it in the bridesmaids’ dresses, the fabulously sexy shoes from BHLDN and that beautiful shade of lipstick that contrasts so beautifully on the dark skinned model. If you are a bride looking to wear a daring shade on their big day I highly recommend talking to a professional make up artist about it, make sure the shade is something you are comfortable with and that it suits your colouring – after all, these pictures will stay with you forever.
  {Editor’s note – for a tutorial on applying the perfect red lipstick, see this recent post over on Love My Dress}. 

.
The dress is a OTT in an amazing way, the lace ruffled mermaid gown oozes Spanish elegance which is emphasised by the voluminous bolero jacket, perfect with an up-do hairstyle. The gorgeous wedding stationery has an Andalucian feel to it with the tile patterns, and the use of the navy blue adds a fashionable touch to the wedding colour scheme. A great alternative to red and black!

Remember: the plan is to share a new inspiration board in this time slot every week, either compiled by myself, regular guest blogger Katy or YOU: get in touch with your own ideas and inspiration boards! We’ll be discussing our inspirations behind the images too so it’s simply going to be a whole load of lovely.

.

If you are a little less arty but in need of inspiration and still want to play along, we will also be taking requests for colour schemes and themes and making bespoke boards for my readers. Please contact me to suggest a theme or colour scheme.
