M.O.B. Can Wear Black

My mom and I got to talking about what she is going to wear for my wedding, which got us thinking about what is and isn't appropriate for the mother of the bride. Turns out wearing black is totally OK to wear! Not that my mom is eager to jump into something black on my big day.

LACE/SATIN DRESS
Colors Available: Black/Nude.

FabulousAfter40.com posted an article about this very issue. You can read it here, but it basically says that the old custom of never wearing black is obsolete. The rule no longer applies. The exception, however, is that the bride must approve. The idea is to let the bride shine and not to distract from the day's event.
Rules Schmules. My mom and I agree with the article. Wear something that is elegant, sophisticated and comfortable. Obviously, nothing that would distract or tarnish the look of the wedding or the photos.
What do you think? Are you okay with black being worn at the wedding?

I think it's seductive in a great way. Women of all ages can be seductive without being slutty and while maintaining their appropriate age. Just my opinion, but I don't plan on looking frumpy after I turn 40.
I think if I saw my mom in this she'd look great! I know my dad would be the one trying to cover her up.
I find this dress to be really seductive. Maybe it's the pose. I'm not sure. If an older woman were to wear this, she better pull it off with some grace

Trending Bridal Style for 2015
It's the time of the year again where couple are looking forward to tie the knot. Spring and summer is by far the busiest season for brides. From wedding planning to honeymoon, their bucket is pack with tons of to-dos. If you're getting married this year, I've compiled a list of growing trends. Whether you plan to rent or buy a dress, consider these styles. 1. Sweetheart Neckline This never seem to go out of fashion. This sweet and sexy neckline is more modest than a tube dress. The best part is it looks stunning on almost every size. Definitely, a keeper! 2. Off-White Dress I'm seeing more and more brides opt for a subtle peach and off-white dress for weddings. It's something more dramatic than white but still remains the classic look. Perfect for Spring and Summer lightening. 3. Open Back Beauty Want to add a touch of sensuality while looking sophisticated? The open-back design is the winner. The exposed back design is a compromise between modern and modes without disturbing the crowd. 4. A Touch of Vintage The vintage bride with headpieces is a growing trend last year and this year it will continue to remain strong. The 20s inspired gowns are sexy, low-key and perfect for a boho-bride. 5. Texture Update Want to stick with a classic design and be set apart from all the other brides? A subtle texture with a touch of individuality is the perfect way to go. Look at the tube for example. 6. Tulle Tulle This is a better upgrade of the giant princess-style gown that you've seen in the past. I'm especially drawn by the bottom half design - multiple layers of tulle fabric.

How-To: Boho Braided Half Crown
The Beauty Department just published this super cute hair tutorial that I had to share with my gals and my brides on Vingle! As you can see, it's super easy and straight forward in the instructions. Try this out and let me know what you think! 1. Wave hair. 2. Gather and section off the top half of your hair (temple to temple) 3. Roll and clip this section up and away. 4. Next section off one inch sections on your right and left side from your hairline, near your temple (this is the area slightly above your ear). Braid this section vertically down. 5. Backcomb the braid instead of tying it off. Repeat on both sides. 6. Bring braids forward towards the face and unclip the top section of hair (step 3). Allow this section to fall and blend with the bottom half of your hair. 7. Take both braids from each side. 8. Bring these braids to the middle back of your head, cross them over each other. 9. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 10. Now make one inch sections below your first set of braids on each side. Repeat the first set of braids we did (Follow steps 4 and 5 ). Make sure the braid is directly under your last braids. 11. Once both sides are braided bring hair around to the middle back of your head and cross them over each other. 12. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 13. Once everything is fastened adjust your curls on the bottom half and style using a texture spray. 14. Finish off waves and look with a weightless protectant. 15. Make any further styling adjustments to your look. and Enjoy an easy DIY half up boho braided up-do. Photo & Post by Carachele Tyvan
