LETTER FROM THE EDITOR Pink, red, white lace, cupids, arrows, and hearts galore bedazzle front doors, boutiques, restaurants, and more—an ever-present reminder that February is the month of LOVE. Humans are made to love and to be loved, so what better thing is there to celebrate! Whether your personal focus this month is romantic love, familial love, or phileo love, take time to tell those who care the most about that you love them. “Something borrowed, something blue, something old, and something new!”—In keeping with the theme of love, this month So6ix is providing you with pictures, ideas, and information about weddings and everything bridal. Articles include such things as tips for weddings on a budget, ways to stay fit on a honeymoon, top wedding trends for 2012, and To-Do lists. While thinking about the concept of love, I searched the Internet and found some interesting

quotes. Enjoy the month of love! “Where there is love there is life.”— Mohandas K. Gandhi “At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.”— Plato “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.”— Helen Keller “When you are in love, you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”— Dr. Seuss

Kate

Middleton,

and

Charlene

Wittstock, it certainly hasn’t missed the non-star factor crowd. Having one gown for your ceremony and another for your reception is a must do. If couture gowns suit your inner fashionista needs, but don’t necessarily fit your wedding budget, consider “renting” your couture designs. There are several boutiques that have lines such as Stella McCartney, Vera Wang, Alexander McQueen, and many more available for reasonable prices that won’t break your budget and will leave you looking fabulous on your special day. EVERYONE IN WHITE Traditionally, the bride was the only one supposed to wear white in the wedding party. The “white hot” trend is for the bridesmaids and even the mother of the bride to wear white as well. Recently, we have seen the bridal party of the high profile

weddings

of

Kate

Middleton, Kim Kardashian and Kate Moss walking down the aisle in all white. It gives the wedding a completely different look and allows the chance for details to stand out that normally wouldn’t. Angelique Christina 12

ADVICE FROM OKLAHOMA WEDDING EXPERTS

FLORAL: NEW LEAF FLORIST "First and foremost to alleviate stress select a floral designer and floral company u can trust. A talented and experienced designer can craft any look and feel you want, and have ideas on how to get there while working in your budget. Now is not the time to do it yourself. Leave. It to the professionals so you can enjoy and remember every moment of the day. Remember when planning your budget, a room without flowers is like a ring without diamonds, no warmth, no glow, no sparkle." Greg Davis New Leaf Florist: 405-842-2444 www.newleafokc.com


WEDDING CONSULTANT: ABOUT LAST NIGHT...EVENT PLANNING It is my goal for my brides to be relaxed and fully enjoy every aspect of the planning process and their wedding weekend. Hire a wedding consultant that is also a designer who will understand your vision and execute every detail to create that vision. My favorite thing to do is room transformations, providing the "Wow" factor for the bride and her guests. About Last Night...event planning 405-722-0059 www.aboutlastnight.net

ATTIRE: MOLIERE BRIDAL "You will wear your dress for just a day, but it will be captured forever in pictures. So, choose a gown that ďŹ ts your personality and makes you feel beautiful." Rhonda Davis Moliere Bridal 405-840-0100 www.molierebridal.com


RENTALS/DECOR: MARIANNE’S RENTALS FOR SPECIAL EVENTS "Renting specialty linens, chargers, glassware, and flatware along with chiavari chairs accented with chair ties will take an event from ordinary to extraordianary!" Brent Patterson Marianne's Rentals 405-751-3100 www.mariannesrentals.com

LOUNGE FURNITURE: MOOD PARTY RENTALS Ok, so you’ve picked out luscious linens, fabulous flowers, and all the beautiful things that make your special day truly your own. But, you still need something…something to take it to the next level. Time to think about a lounge area! It’s what all the cool parties are doing! Whether it’s glitz and glam, modern and sleek, or the oh-so-beautiful rustic chic…a cozy lounge area creates a more intimate gathering space for your guests to chit and chat. At Mood we have just what you need to create the perfect lounge. Lizards optional. Mood Party Rentals 405-840-2081 www.moodpartyrentals.com


LIGHTING/LED DANCE FLOOR: INNOVATIVE EVENT SOLUTIONS “In addition to your music, nothing gets a party going like lighting! The mood, energy level and ambiance are all determined by the lighting at your reception. Want to get your guests on the dance floor and keep them there?

Christian Traina Traina Photography 405-209-6463 www.trainaphotography.com

HAIR: MALORIE AVALINE HAIR STYLIST AND MAKEUP ARTIST When selecting a stylist for your wedding day hair, make sure your hair stylist is state licensed and is an expert at wedding hair, as not all hair stylists are great at formal styling! Ask to see a portfolio. Any great stylist will have a variety of photos from past work they have done. It is a great idea to bring photos of hairstyles that you like to a trial run with your stylist. Bring your veil and any hair adornment that you will be wearing. This will allow you to see a complete and ďŹ nished style! Malorie Avaline 405-397-7232 www.malorieavaline.com

MAKEUP: JENNIFER MCLAUGHLIN Choose a look that is classic and will live forever in your pictures. Stay away from the "what's hot now," trends. You won't want to look back on your wedding album and ask yourself 'remind me again why I wore green eye shadow?' Choosing a look that is timeless, and a better, more polished version of your everyday self, is deďŹ nitely the way to go! Jennifer McLaughlin 580-458-1636 www.jennifermclaughlinmakeup.com

so6ix.com | FEBRUARY 2012

Last year, pleats were everywhere. Bridal gowns


were showing pleating and the bridal shoe industry followed suit. This year, we are seeing even more pleated bridal shoes!  Pleating is the perfect way to add visual interest to an otherwise simple shoe. Designer Bridal shoes like the Touch Ups by Benjamin Walk have a ton of pleated styles in a variety of heel heights. Any bride getting married outside may want to consider a wedge as her bridal shoe. Bridal wedges are perfect for outdoor weddings because they will not sink into the grass like heels will. Bridal wedges are also extra sturdy for dancing and are also great for bridesmaids. Your friends will thank you when they can easily walk down a grassy aisle without tripping. My favorite bridal wedges are the Touch Ups Honey, a low wedge dyeable pump with peek-a-boo toe. Wearing bridal shoes that are so uncomfortable you can barely stand (never mind dance) is NOT a trend for the coming year. Brides nowadays want to wear something beautiful, but also comfortable. Last year, flat bridal shoes were extremely popular. This year, manufacturers have gone to great lengths to create bridal shoe flats with looks that are stunning and practical.

Bridal flats are

wonderful for many reasons besides comfort. They are the perfect bridal shoe for a bride who is the same height as her groom. Bridal flats also work well for outdoor/beach weddings since they won't sink into grass or sand. Flat bridal shoes can also be used to change into for the reception. With bridal flats on, you can dance the night away in total comfort! So

whether

it’s

flats

or

stilettos, crystals or bright blue, be a bold bride, and go for the trendy new!

Go for a minimalist look. Here are two ideas for inexpensive but beautiful centerpieces. 1. For tall arrangements, try this: Use tall, clear-glass vases. Add colored or clear-glass beads to the bottom of the vases. Add 1 grouping of simple, long-stem greenery and 3 or 5 flowering long stems. Going with a minimalist look and staying away from stems that are too pricy will help create elegance that won’t break the bank. 2.

Regardless, if you are working on a tight budget, you need to put the time and effort into finding dresses at a decent price. Some brides simply choose a color and a dress length and allow the bridesmaids to wear any dress in that color. For the wedding dress, choose a simple and elegant style. There are dresses under $500 that still look divine; they are usually simple in style and made of chiffon or satin rather than silk.
