Jessica Simpson got married to fiancee of four years Eric Johnson last Saturday [see details]. The singer got married in a stunning gold dress by Carolina Herrera.

Jessica worked with Carolina to create the breathtaking gown. The dress was a lovely champagne and gold strapless multi-layer tulle gown. “The whole dress is embroidered in gold and feels very regal,” Carolina told People.

 In addition, Jessica donned a cathedral length veil as well as Brian Atwood shoes and Neil Lane jewels. As for any bride, Jessica needed something blue, so Carolina added a blue ribbon inside the gown. The dress itself was a gorgeous array of gold embroidery over white tulle and lace, as revealed in its sketch.

When The Husband Gets To Choose The Wedding Color Theme - Expect the Unexpected

Posted in: ,

It is usually the bride who takes charge of most aspects of the wedding day, especially the color theme. Men who are interested pick up the logistics aspect. But sometimes, even men have their favorite colors and want to see it reflected on their wedding day.

That was exactly what happened with John Jones from South Wales and his wife Kelly Williams, as she and her family and friends planned their wedding. John, a carpenter, loves black and yellow which is the brand color of his favorite tools, so he suggested to his wife to allow them use black and yellow for their wedding theme, and she agreed.

There's really nothing wrong with using the color black for weddings, and combined with yellow, the colors are actually unique and can make the wedding party stand out!

What is also really interesting is their yellow and black wedding cake. The cake has miniatures of the groom in his black and yellow carpenter's uniform and the bride in white. Talk about showcasing your personality on your wedding day, which is as it should be.

Happy Married life to the couple!

Honey Boo Boo's Mother is a Non-Traditional Bride

Posted in: , ,

Honey Boo Boo's mother has joined our line-up of non-traditional brides. June Shannon, called "Mama June" in the program held a commitment ceremony with her partner and Honey Boo Boo's father, Mike Thompson or "Sugar Bear", a name she coined for him.

I watched their reality show when the hype was so much to know what it was about, and watched a few more episodes after that. For all their 'village' mentality, they are a loving family and Mama June while laid back, also knew what she wanted and Sugar Bear seemed like a good man. The part where he got her a statue of a deer as a gift to spice up their romance cracked me up. His excuse, they frequently get train or road kill of deer around their house, and enjoy the free meat! LOL...

Well, the two exchanged vows, though they might not be legally binding marriage vows according to reports, last Sunday in their backyard. [see POLL, where is your dream wedding location?] Mama June sported an over-the-top camouflage and orange tulle wedding gown. Same with her partner.

What do you think of their outfits?

Colored Wedding Gowns and Non-Traditional Brides

Posted in: , , , ,

I have blogged before about unique or non traditional brides and grooms, but today, I'll be asking about colored wedding gowns. Is it a do or don't for you? My interest was piqued when I heard that Kelis used a green gown when she got married to Nas. So below, I have collected some examples that I really love, from Red, to orange, blue, pink, green, and even black.
