FAIRY TALE

Bella Belle Shoes Paloma Blush

Dress: Monique Lhullier Aviva

 

You love the look of layered tulle that epitomizes the dreamy fairy tale. Of course, this Monique Lhullier’s Aviva made your heart skip a beat with its soft layered tulle skirt and romantic long sleeves. The blush color and elegant sparkles made it youthful and swoon-worthy. What can we say, Monique’s expertise is the modern take on romance.

What shoes is worthy of this modern cinderella look, you ask? Bella Belle’s blush Paloma is truly the cinderella’s glass slippers for our fairy tale brides. They echoes the color and the beaded mesh bodice of the dress. Plus the mesh backing creates the illusion of tulle on your feet. The beadings are intricate and and the t-strap lengthens your legs visually!

Paolo Sebastian’s Swan Lake was voted as the hottest wedding dress on the internet. With its thigh-high slit and illusion neckline, it is not hard to see why. The tulle skirt adds more drama and softness to the look. Paola knows how to steal our hearts.

BOHEMIAN CHIC

Dress: Claire Pettibone Maia
Shoes: Adelaide

 

If Jenny Packham is the beading extraordinaire, Claire Pettibone is the embroidery connoisseur. Her wedding dresses drip with elaborate floral embroideries and are celebrated by all boho chic brides. This Maia dress shows how far from cutesy and how close to ethereal a pastel look is in her magical hands. What a lovely and elegant look for a backyard or forest wedding.  

For such a pastel floral boho chic look, only Bella Belle’s Adelaide would polish up the look. It showcases the pastel embroideries on a linen silk mary janes. The pointy toe silhouette adds a dash of sophistication to the garden look. We especially love the thoughtful detail of the organic linen silk material. How fitting for a boho chic bride!

 

REGAL

Queen of beaded wedding dresses, Jenny Packham designs dresses with to-die-for embellishments. This Faith wedding dress sums up her signature look: intricate, light beading, delicate embellishment and flowing silhouette. Her wedding dresses are known for their elegant and timeless quality. This dress has that regal look with a touch of vintage or the bohemian look depending on the rest of your accessories. Didn’t we say Jenny is amazing like that?

With such intricate embellishments on the wedding dress, what shoes would you say measure up to such a stunning dress? Bella Belle Filipa in champagne is the perfect complement to the regal look. With its rhinestone band and soft champagne color, Filipa echoes the exquisite details of the dress. Plus, the fresh take on the ankle straps add something extra to the overall look, don’t you think?

 

MODERN MINIMALISM

Dress: Oscar de la Renta
Shoes: Julia
 

A lesson in modern minimalism is demonstrated by this Oscar de la Renta’s Hunter dress. The dramatic large bow at the back takes the center stage in this silk Mikado dress. Oscar’s glamorous dresses are fixtures on the red carpet among celebrities, but it does not mean that you need to be an A-lister to don one of their exquisite gowns.

When a dress is this sleek, minimalist, and modern, how would you finish the look? With an equally sleek and modern architectural detail as well, of course! Enter Julia, Bella Belle’s taken on modern minimalism. With a smooth silk as the backdrop, the large polished bow adorns the d’orsay heels. To complete the look, a single pearl adds a finishing luster to this elegant shoes.   

Old World Charm Wedding Inspiration

 The team gathered the inspiration from the real couple’s perfect location in Miami’s Ancient Spanish Monastery. The old charm within the architecture contrasts perfectly with the modern aesthetic.  An organic yet romantic color pallet was chosen to let the magnificent architecture speak for itself. Ivory, light yellow and shades of peach gave a sense of unity to all the details from the bouquets to the candle sticks. The beautiful bride Gabrielle wore a stunning ivory colored Chaviano Couture gown with a modern feel to distinguish from the historic venue. We paired Gabrielle’s gown with our Tess gold colored Bella Belle heel. The tess heel is charming with a vintage feel. Its embroidered design and the classic peep toe was the perfect touch to the modern gown.

Parisian Wedding Inspiration

Parisian Wedding Inspiration

Who doesn’t have a soft spot for a chic, simplistic yet elegant Paris wedding. We paired up with Rebecca Yale Photography to capture the ideal fairytale wedding. The shoot took place in the historic Pavillon de Musique outside of Paris. This venue features a striking garden, beautiful paintings and gold and blue hues throughout the interior of the Pavillon. The bride wore a stunning Inbal Dror gown, featuring a delicate lace back, which coordinated with the ivory lace cut out invitations. We chose to pair the bride’s Inbal Dror gown with our Paloma Blush heel. Bella Belle Paloma heel is soft yet sexy, with handmade blush embellishments and a peep toe design. The blush toned heel was a perfect addition to pick up on the gold accents in the venue. The bouquet was a delicate mixture of blush toned flowers with greenery. The bouquets were designed to incorporate the atmosphere from the exquisite gardens. We hope you have gained inspiration from this alluring shoot, time to start planning your dream Parisian wedding!
