THEIA

SPRING 2017 BRIDESMAIDS COLLECTION www.theiacouture.com

Announcing the launch of THEIA Bridesmaids, inspired by the Greek Goddess of light. The debut collection will include twelve styles, available in four fabrics; tulle, chiffon, sequins and lace. Drawing inspiration from some of THEIA’s bestselling evening wear and bridal silhouettes and fabrications, the collection includes dramatic cowl back gowns, micro sequins and mix and match toppers. With a soft color palette of neutrals, pastels and metallics, the line evokes a romantic ethereal vibe with a hint of boho chic.

36

The THEIA Bridesmaids collection is designed to complement the THEIA Bride. Her bridesmaid is a fun loving, modern girl who loves fashion. Baring these two facts in mind, a range of styles were meticulously designed to flatter all body types, allowing each girl to look and feel great in her THEIA bridesmaid gown. The goal is to create an entire THEIA bridal party shining from the inside out on the brides’ most important day. The dresses are beautifully constructed and designed so that they can be worn more than once, perfect for the bridal party and perfect to wear again.

By Samantha Crotty

For those of you who might be unfamiliar with the acronym, LGBT stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender. Same-sex marriage is now legal in the U.S., which means you may attend a same-sex wedding or participate in one in the near future. How exciting! Here are some wedding etiquette tips and traditions that you should know:

53


There isn’t always an exchange of rings. While some couples stick with tradition and opt to purchase complementing wedding rings, some couples are exchanging watches or other tokens of their love and commitment to each other instead. The processional can get creative. Unlike traditional weddings where the groom and his attendants process ďŹ rst and wait at the end of the aisle for the bridal attendants and bride to process (usually escorted by one or both of her parents), many same-sex couples walk down the aisle together without their parents or bridal party, or meet halfway down the aisle. There’s plenty of creativity with this part of the ceremony. 54

Bridesmaids and groomsmen? Not like you might think. Samesex weddings often have mixed genders in positions of honor within the wedding party. Rather than a maid of honor, for example, you might have a man of honor or two best men, and so on for females. Listen to how the couple addresses each other. Some same-sex couples refer to themselves as partners, life partners, husbands, wives, or spouses. Listen to how they address one another and refer to them the same way.


Even unsupportive family should be invited. For samesex couples who are wondering if you should invite a family member to your wedding who hasn’t been supportive of your relationship, the answer is yes. You’re only getting married once, and everyone important to you deserves the opportunity to attend.

Don’t expect all the same traditions as opposite-sex weddings. You may be used to seeing certain wedding traditions that apply to brides or grooms (the bouquet toss or garter toss, for example) that you’re less likely to see at a same-sex wedding. Just go with the flow.

Even unsupportive family should attend. If you’re the family member of a same-sex couple who has invited you to their wedding and you don’t personally support the idea of samesex marriage, set aside your personal feelings for those few hours and attend the wedding. Please refrain from sharing your views on this subject when it comes to their wedding. Everyone will mingle. There isn’t likely to be a side designated for each member of the wedding couple during the ceremony. It’s more likely that guests will be encouraged to sit wherever they’d like. Reception seating is likely to be mixed, too.

Not sure if utilizing social media is right for your wedding? Here is a pro and con list to help you decide.

PROs • You get to see your wedding through the eyes of your wedding guests. • You don’t have to wait weeks (or months) for your photographs. Instead, you get to browse through your friends photos on Instagram and Facebook immediately. • It allows all of your wedding guests to be a part of your big day. No more worrying about picking select folks to stand beside you, every guest does something.

67


CONS • Wedding guests are constantly looking at their phones instead of experiencing the wedding you planned and paid for. • Wedding guests can get in the way of photographers, which means your professional photos will have cell phones in them. • Even if you wanted to save the images, they will be low-resolution photos (think Instagram size and it’s quality). • Everyone can see the photos, including the not-so-good ones and they can comment on them good or bad.

68

Now that you’ve gone through this list, is social media right for your wedding? Go to Head Over Heels to let us know.
