One glance at the gowns on the Haute Couture runways in Paris, and you’ll believe in magic. With thousands of beads sewn on by hand, the most luxurious fabrics money can buy, and designs worthy of a place in the Louvre, Haute Couture gowns are as enchanting coming down the aisle as they are coming down the runway. So tell us, which of these looks would you want to steal for yourself? Here are 4 gowns we’d be more than happy to wear at our wedding (if we have the chance to do it all over again, same hubby of course!).

Icy Blue Winter Wedding Ideas and Inspiration

Today’s styled shoot comes from our friends in the Rocky Mountains at Rocky Mountain Bride:

When describing today’s feature, photographer Sarah Jozsa says, “The aim of this inspirational shoot was to juxtapose vintage glamour with rustic details to create a perfect pairing of city glamour and rugged rustic style.” Needless to say, she succeeded with flying colors. Pairing rustic and glamorous elements is one of our favorite looks and we love the contrast of lace, rich furs and dapper menswear with the natural elements of the table greens and frozen Canadian lake. Stunning pale blue, cream, and blush florals pop against the groom’s cranberry bowtie and pocket square – an amazing winter palette!

19-champagne-toast-wedding-reception

There are lots of traditions associated with weddings, but toasting of the bride and the groom with Champagne (or sparkling wine) is one of the most historic traditions that we honor. Sparkling wine is truly the wine of celebration and your wedding is the ultimate time to celebrate! So I never suggest you skip the champagne toast. I have to say, it’s actually one of my favorite parts of the evening. If high end Champagne is a bit too rich for your blood, then here are 3 of our favorite alternatives:

sparkling-wine

Evolution Sparkling Wine, $20 – Bursts of citrus and aromatics of apricot, green apple and Bosc pear, this bright, delicious glass of bubbly starts off dry and finishes crisp. Pairs well with just about anything and is the ideal match for hors d’oeuvres, especially salty dishes.

Nicolas Feuillatte Champagne, $35 On par with entry-level bottles from Piper-Heidsieck, Veuve Clicquot, Laurent-Perrier, and Moët & Chandon. The Blue Label is crisp with hints of peach and green apple overtones.

sweet-laurel-bakery

NV Le Grand Courtage Grande Cuvee Brut Rose, $20 – A pink blend of Chardonnay, Ugni Blanc, and Gamay. Fresh and fruity, with clear strawberry notes on the nose. A bracing and lasting acidity comes along quickly on the palate, offering some floral elements — almost green and grassy at times. The finish is clean and inviting, that strawberry element lingering, along with some rose petal notes. Lovely and difficult to put down
