Wedding trend alert: More couples choose enchanting winter themes

The glittering icicles, crisp white snow and a simple unspoken elegance – the wonder of winter has suited weddings well for many years. Today, Disney’s Frozen has renewed interest in winter weddings, with more couples choosing a sophisticated theme that is inspired by the style and storyline of the popular film.

If you think it’s odd to model the theme of your wedding after a children’s movie, you’re perhaps not aware of just how brides are finding inspiration from the movie to create the wedding of their dreams. The reception isn’t plastered with princesses and fairies. Rather, this is chic style that embraces the beauty of winter while taking subtle cues from the movie. Consider these five trendy ways brides are creating Frozen-themed weddings:

Invitations

The invitation sets the stage and provides guests clues as to what to expect at the ceremony and reception. The Disney Fairy Tale Wedding collection fromInvitations by Dawn gives brides two beautiful wintery options. The Disney’s Icy Swirls Invitation is inspired by Elsa, evoking a regal, elegant and magical design that features shimmer paper and a laser cut swirl band in baby blue. For the down-to-earth bride who embraces natural designs, the Disney Natural Beauty Invitationinspired by Anna is the perfect option. Ecru shimmer paper, a wood grain background and choice of design colors combine to show a bride’s free spirit and impeccable style.

The look

Wedding-day style is emulating Frozen with looks that are as cool as ice. Brides are choosing dresses of crisp white satin, glitter and organza to capture the beauty of Elsa. Alfred Angelo even features an Elsa wedding dresses in his 2015 Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings collection. To finish the look and truly exude the character of Elsa, brides are choosing loose braids and soft, shimmery makeup. For the bridesmaids, dresses in tones of evergreen or plum are gaining popularity.

Reception decor

The reception is where brides are really having fun selecting decor to create a winter wonderland setting that captures the attention of guests young and old. Some are going with an all-white setting with touches of sparkling crystal, flickering candles and twinkle string lights for an instantly romantic ambience inspired by Elsa. Others are embracing touches of rich color and natural decor, such as plum table runners, gold-rimmed plates and accents of pine cones and birch branches, much to the style of Anna.

Florals

More florists are being asked to model bouquets and centerpieces after Frozen and the outcomes are breathtaking. For an icy winter look representative of Elsa, brides are selecting all-white arrangements with petal tips dusted in micro-glitter or gems peaking out of the center of each flower. For the rich, natural look of Anna, brides are selecting flowers in a variety of gemstones like ruby, garnet, emerald and amethyst for bouquets that pop against a white dress or tabletop.

Rings

While diamonds are the traditional stone for engagement rings, more brides are thinking outside the jewelry box and longing for a ring that none of their friends will have. Selecting stones in unique hues is a big trend, and there are many options that capture the beauty of winter. A ring featuring icy aquamarine with blue sapphire accents set in white gold embraces the style of Elsa perfectly. For natural beauties like Anna, an emerald center stone set in rose gold surrounded by rich purple amethyst in the shape of a snow flake is sure to please. Bottom line: when it comes to rings, the sky is the limit and diamonds aren’t necessarily a girl’s best friend any longer.

Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Recap: Stars And Weddings And Almost Everything Nice

Last night on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, stars rose, hearts sunk, andKim Richards‘ daughter got married in a gorgeous wedding, which was sweet and lovely and made me wanna be nice to Kim. I imagine that will be short-lived.

In what is surely the very definition of hell, Yolanda Foster is trapped on a rent-a-yacht in the middle of the ocean with Kyle Richards after receiving the news that her daughter Bella (soon to be known as The Disowned One) got a DUI. Yolanda sniffles through telling us that poor Bella had only ONE glass of wine and got pulled over. The injustice! Yolanda isn’t sure how to handle her children growing up and making decisions without her input. It hits her on an additional level because her father died in a car accident and she can’t believe Bella would be so careless.

CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON FOR MORE!

Yolanda struggles to remain composed because she doesn’t want to ruin Kyle’svacation with a meltdown, as if Kyle would ever extend that same courtesy! Kyle was probably wondering if she should just go ahead and have the meltdown herself because you know, camera time! And the yacht could be detained in Spain on a psychiatric hold which could get mighty exciting and – OMG the tabloids would be writing about her for at least a week!

Yolanda is so boring and mature – it’s times like this I miss ol’ Loony LipsTaylor Armstrong. She would be hysterically flinging herself over the rails of the yacht, fake drowning, screeching and trying to cut the lifejacket off with a bobby pin all because Kyle gave her champagne instead of prosecco and the boat had green towels, which are so ugly and cheap and below her level of spectacular taste. I digress…

Apparently Yolanda is unable to get a plane home until the next day, which leaves me confused: David Foster does not have a personal universal cloud system to transport Her High and Mightiness wherever she needs to levitate, through the stratosphere as she is ensconced in pure crystal white light? I assumed her fridge doubled as a private rocket – my mistake.

David disappoints me. What good is being an almost-EGOT when you can’t even control the metaphysical forces of unique personal transportation? Oh yes, David is in possession of an Oscar, an Emmy, 45,000 Grammys, but no Tony yet. Silly me, I thought the “T” stood for Turgid Egomaniac, in which case mission accomplished, but it just stands for Tony, one of which David does not own. Lucky for him neither does anyone else, but But somebody else does have an Emmy: Eileen Davidson! E for Emmy and Eileen. F for Failure and Foster.

Eileen has been on hiatus from starring in the last of the remaining soap operas, but she’s decided to return to work to save her marriage by making out in the shower with random actor dudes and by bringing home the bacon. She’s rehearsing a script, which I’m pretty sure is an Apollo Nida biopic, because it features a character who stole a dead person’s identity after getting out of prison. Lifetime Movie, alert!

Eileen loves being a soap star – she’s brought her son to work with her since he was 2 months old – he literally grew up on the CBS set playing with the Price Is Right wheel. Miraculously he did not become a child star, and miraculously Eileen did not turned into a psycho bitch or a homicidal maniac because she was able to sow those wild oats through her characters. Some girls have all the luck!

Speaking of luck, Lisa Vanderpump is headed to Palm Springs where she’s receiving a star on the Walk Of Fame. Before leaving, Magdalena, the housekeeper Lisa kidnapped on the side of the road (no this is not one ofEileen’s Days story lines, sadly!), shows up with Giggy wrapped in a towel. Giggy’s been looking depressed lately – I think Lisa is smothering him with his weight in sequins. Now he must form a mutiny and turn all the other dogs against her. Giggy swears Lisa put a tabloid with a story about Pinkie’s leash being rhinestone instead of diamond in the dog bed last week.

Lisa is perturbed that Magdalena washed Giggy instead of his suit, per her instructions, then she worries that Magdalena may also be washing Ken instead of his suit, not that Lisa would care about that except for the fact that it would probably make her late! Lisa makes a note to order Rosetta Stone: British English for Magdalena.

Roscia, who is practically family – albeit the only member of the family who is responsible for cleaning up – would never make such mistake. Roscia knows how to cut Giggy’s beef tarte-tarte just so and has been elevated to sitting with the family during dinner while they discuss Brazilian bikini waxes with the token gays and Lipsa Rinna, who believes public hair is an important form of protection. From husbands, LVP enquires? No, from disease. So basically – from husbands, or at least Brandi Glanville‘s husband. (According to Brandi’s book, that is!)

Local bridal shop displays 200-year-old wedding dress

Cupid's Corner has a veryold addition to its wedding dress collection.

The bridal boutique, 2441 Eighth St. S., is presently home to an antique wedding dress that dates back to 1810, and Wisconsin Rapids residents are invited to take a look. The more than 200-year-old gown is one of eight antique wedding dresses currently on display at the boutique.

The store's owner, Shirley Marquardt, started collecting the dresses, which date from 1810 to 1978, five years ago. All of the dresses are on loan from parties willing to part with their bridal gowns for a short period. The vintage apparel will be on display for the public to view until the end of 2014. There is no cost to view the dresses.

Several owners of the antique bridal gowns already have visited their dresses at Cupid's Corner, and Marquardt said they're gratified to see them on display.

"They're proud to see their wedding dresses here," Marquardt said. "Because, a lot of times, they think, 'Oh it's just put away in a box and nothing is ever going to happen to it.'"

Marquardt said the decision to start this dress collection stemmed from her interest in bridal fashion from the past. She said she started asking around the community about vintage bridal wear and received some enthusiastic responses, she said.

She received the oldest dress — which was originally made in Germany — from a man whose family passed down the dress from one generation to the next. The last person to have worn the 1810 bridal gown was the owner's sister, at her 1970 wedding.

After studying the antique gowns, Marquardt said she noticed that older wedding apparel is more modest than today's styles. A high neck collar, straight skirt and sleeves were common attributes of wedding dresses designed in the 19th and 20th centuries, Marquardt said.

"The more modern they are, the less sleeves they have," Marquardt said.

Marquardt said many of the fashions and trends from past decades are "in" again today, such as brides wearing headbands instead of veils.

Included in Marquardt's collection is the wedding dress of the store's manager, Lorre Lynde. Lynde, who married in 1975, said she enjoys being able to admire the gown while working.

"I think in the '70s that things weren't made quite as nicely as far as the beautiful fabrics and laces (of older dresses)," said. "But it's kind of fun to look at it every day."
