Forever Holly – Inspiration for a chic Breakfast at Tiffany’s themed Wedding

October 10, 2011

Following my blissful afternoon of Audrey the other weekend and my subsequent Style Icon post I began to muse on how a bride might channel the great Miss Hepburn and infuse their big day with some Breakfast at Tiffany’s style….. and after a few hours surfing the wide world of the web I pieced together a couple of rather fabulous (even if I do say so myself), hopefully inspirational, Mood Boards. My first is a very dramatic and elegant monochrome, ideal for Winter weddings when these striking colours would photograph so well!

Bridesmaid Dress - Lazaro (available at Made of Honour), Earrings - Magpie Vintage, Pearl Necklace - Vintage Headresses, Shoes -Trousseau Bridal, Wedding Ring - Brilliant Earth, Candles - Pink Frosting 

Think chandeliers, damask and bridesmaids dripping in light catching diamonds. For the groom, there is nothing sexier or more fittingly fab than a tuxedo, and I absolutely adore Anemones and the fine line they walk between contemporary and vintage, they’re so chic.

For the bride I found this stunning Jesus Peiro dress, so reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn (even the model reminds me of her!) It is actually one I tried when looking for THE one – if only our venue had been big enough for the gorgeous train….sigh….. Anyway, that was just over a year ago now, so this particular design may be hard to find, however there is a very similar design in the latest collection!

Or, if Monochrome isn’t for you, try incorporating the divine and timelessly elegant Tiffany Blue, for a fresh look – perfect for a Spring or Summer wedding!  I love the retro 1950s look at the moment – it’s so cute, relaxed and fun!

I love love love that bridesmaid dress from Eden, it is such a pretty colour and the floral detail is oh so sweet! Here’s a little close up……
No longer are bridesmaids dresses frumpy, ugly, stuff of nightmares!
Back to my Breakfast at Tiffany’s theme…… with the dress, you can have such fun, think Audrey Hepburn Funny Face
A  short flirty fifties full-skirted design, like this, another dress from Designs by Moonlight……
Or with a tulle skirt, this in equal measures cute and chic design from Aire Barcelona……
Oh aren’t those shoes gor-geous! I managed to find some similar on Trousseau Bridal……

And if short and sweet isn’t for you, don’t despair (it’s not for everyone) and this elegant design from Jesus Peiro is equally as retro……

I truly believe these themes will be as timeless as the film and the star who inspired them!
