    LulaKate Jacqueline Gown Styled Inspiration | Whimsical and charming - www.lulakate.com/blog

    This LulaKate Jacqueline gown inspiration has been amazing to put together! A dusty blue with lavender and touches of blush make for not only showing off the Pantone colors of the year, but also a whimsical and charming wedding color palette that will last throughout time. You seriously can’t go wrong!

    The color palette also makes our Jacqueline gown shine bright! With skinny straps and a flattering neckline, the Jacqueline gown is a great dress for any shape or style bridesmaid. Plus, they have pockets! The featured look above is with the “Dahlia Skirt,” and of course also comes in the “Brunch” and “Maternity” skirts as well.

    For hair and makeup, we love the idea of a little shimmer on the eyelids and you can definitely do either a flower crown or a braid crown, or both!

    Loving Minted’s watercolor/marble suite for your wedding stationery! Delicate and elegant, but still has a super fun feel that sets the tone for the wedding. We really love it paired with rose gold flatware too!

    And we can’t forget both the bouquet and shoes! For shoes, ballet flats seem like an easy choice and these are great not only for dancing, but the color is a great neutral that you as a bridesmaid can wear again and again. The bouquet works too with ivory and blush roses, perhaps add a few lavender stems in there and you’re good to go!

  • 8 Fun Bachelorette Party Games For Your Girl Squad


    Inspired

    The countdown to the wedding is starting to move faster the closer it gets to the date, and if you haven’t thought about it already, there is something that the bride and her girls need to do…The Bachelorette Party! And what’s more, the games you can play! We found 8 fun bachelorette party games that are sure to be fun, get things going, and be sure to make you giggle all night.

    8 Fun Bachelorette Party Games:

    1.) MEMORY JAR: Have all members of the bridal girl squad write on a piece of paper of how they met the bride or of a fun (maybe embarrassing?!) story the two of them shared. Fold it up, place it in the jar, and then have the bride open them one at a time. A great way to introduce everyone at the party in case they don’t each other!

    2.) MAKE A VIDEO: Find a favorite song as a group, dress up with feather boas, sunglasses, perhaps some bright red or pink lipsticks like LulaKates love to wear and make a music video.

    3.) QUESTIONAIRE: How well does the bride know her fiancé? Before the party, give a list of questions to the groom, get all of his answers and then quiz the bride at the party.

    4.) KISS THE CUTE GUY: This one would be fun to do when catered to the bride’s taste of who ever her celebrity crush is. We do love the Ryan Gosling below! Give her cut out lips to pin (or stick!) on the poster and try and get it as close to guy’s lips as possible. Make sure to spin her around a few times to make it more difficult.

    5.) SCAVENGER HUNT: This one is great if you’re wanting to expand your bachelorette venue and get a little crazy. You can create a list of fun and silly dares for her to do around at different locations, or take her around to meaningful locations of the bride and groom if that works location wise. This bachelorette game is great and can be really unique to the bride.

    6.) MAKE A BRIDAL GOWN: No, we’re talking an actual bridal gown, but a gown that’s a little more bio-degradable, like…toilet paper! Split up your bachelorettes into teams of two and give them a roll of toilet paper. Whoever makes the best looking bridal gown in under 3minutes wins! (Make sure to take pictures!)

    7.) JUNK IN THE TRUNK: This one is a little more active and fun for everyone to try themselves too. Tie on an empty kleenex box around your waist with the box on your back facing out. With your favorite music in the back ground and of course some ping pong balls, your bachelorettes have to try and get all the balls into the box before the time runs out. (3-4minutes) Bride, remember to shake your booty to make it harder for the girl squad!

    8.) BACHELORETTE PARTY PINATA: Find a fun piñata at your local party store and fill it with whatever you like. Candy, fake rings, or makeup even just to name a few.

    Hope you enjoy these 8 fun bachelorette party games! It is true though, wherever you may be for the bachelorette party, whatever games you play, being with your girls is the best! This will be a fun night of giggles and memories you will all share before the big event! And before you know it, you’ll be putting on your LulaKate bridesmaid dresses and helping the bride walk down the aisle to her new adventure. That’s one of the many things best friends are for, right?!

  • Coral and Pink Color Palette


    Bridesmaid

     

    Alright ladies, first things first. Pretty much everything for your wedding starts with the color scheme. With a few exceptions, a color scheme influences everything from what florals you choose, the vibe of your wedding, and of course, the bridesmaid dresses. Using these two images below, and a little glitter, we can start putting together some fabulous bridesmaid style with ease!

    Below, with inspiration from the pretty coral and pink color palette above, and using our lovely 2016 LulaKate Campaign photos with the delightful Kat Harris on photography, Beth Chapman Styling, Rumiko Fletcher of Hana Floral Design, and Jennie Kay Beauty on hair and makeup, is some oh-so-lovely bridesmaid fashion and style inspiration!

    One of our favorite things about the colors that we have for our LulaKate dresses are that they match with all these gorgeous florals!! Peonies and ranunculus are so full of life and charm, and we’d like to think our dresses are too! Having florals to match your bridesmaid dresses in the coral and pink color palette (and vice versa!) also ensure that the bride’s dress of stunning white will stand out and shine. You can’t look at the coral and pink color palette without feeling cheerful!

    While keeping your bridesmaid makeup simple and natural, give it a little pop with a bold lip. Match your lips to your dress or interchange your lip color with other dresses if you’re choosing to mix and match your bridesmaids dress colors. Just make sure to keep it all in the same color scheme!

    Bridesmaid hair can be up, down, all around for pretty much any lady in your bridal party, but we have to say these two hairstyles above, the top knot and a braided and messy chignon are among our favorites. A top knot to go more classic and preppy and the chignon to have a little more relaxed and yet stunning bridesmaid look. You can’t go wrong.

    Diamonds are said to be a girl’s best friend but we are kind of smitten with these striped, pink, and pearl studs. They’re easy to wear, not heavy, and provide the perfect little accessory to go with your LulaKate dress. Classy and sassy!

    Ah, shoes! How could we forget shoes!? OF COURSE we love these fabulous glittered slingback heels from Kate Spade. Completely doable as a bridesmaid shoe, and who wouldn’t wear these again? And then, perhaps if you’re feet start hurting from all the dancing you’ll be doing, you can always slip on these sweet and simple coral sandals from Lucky Brand found here!
