All about the neckline of a gown, your wedding day is all that you want it to be, you decide how much you want to show or not! there are of course more subtle necklines that are classic and more modest and then there are necklines that like to bare it all!

There are so many ways to express a neckline within and on a dress, there can be variations of certain necklines as well to make it just your own!

There are the typical necklines in things such as sweethearts, straight, off the shoulder, v-neck, halter strap, spaghetti straps; these are more of the traditional looks that can be given in a wedding gown, then there are the jewel neck, the scoop neck, the square, halter, high neck, Sabrina neck, asymmetrical, queen Anne line, illusion, cowl neck and the grecian.

“I believe finding a wedding dress is like finding a true friend; you should be able to trust it, you should never regret it, and whenever you see it… it should always make you smile.” Sareh Nouri


Minimalistic, modern vs retro: floral arrangements

Different flower arrangements can change with the different themes of your wedding and the different feeling you would like to go for within the types of flowers and the way you would like to put them into place. There are new ways coming up every year that are new and innovative, even though the same old simple and elegant flower arguments are timeless and will always have a way into the weddings of the present times. Retro flower arrangements are also a big deal because they explore things form the past, the colours of the flowers can change as well, when you think of retro you think of bright colours with a lot of emphasis on colour and texture within the arrangement, on the opposite side of the spectrum there are modern and minimalistic floral arrangements using one flower or two and mainly monochromatic colour schemes with minimal pop of colour within them. Modern Flower arrangements sometimes are expected to defy gravity and be made into extreme shapes that are not normally natural to flowers, these are truly all amazing and they can include any flowers! More retro arrangements will be more on the edgy side of how flower arrangements work, they will also be making a statement but in a different way, they will be making a colour statement; modern arrangements can also do this but in a more twisted and funky way to achieve the modern feel.

Minimalistic floral arrangements are considered modern because they are new and innovative, they show the florist or people picking out the arrangement how things can be so subtle but exciting at the same time, they usually don't include a lot of variation in flower and size because they are suppose to be minimal!

Florals are beautiful no matter how you place them, so are nicer than other and some do have flaws, but flowers are flowers and they are the most beautiful things around that come from nature!you choose what your style is and then consult with someone who knows quite a bit about floral arranging and styles (hint hint Oudalova events and design does!!) and then you decide what to do from there! make all the little detail perfect and help make whatever occasion truly yours!


Summer Love - Shirin & Brian

Romance met glamour last Sunday to celebrate the marriage of Shirin and Brian. Merging Persian and Scottish heritage, the LUXE team chose a soft, romantic colour palette of dusty rose and pastels perched in traditional silver jugs. The wedding was such a personal and touching experience. Coming from different backgrounds, the ceremony involved both their cultures of Persian and Scottish. We helped decorate the sofreh table, which was of cultural significant to Shirin's family. Hydrangeas and roses were settled in many silver ornaments across the head table and dining room. These silver components were from a collection of Brian's family. Mirrors were an important aspect of the decor because it symbolised the good fortune ahead.

For this wedding, LUXE provided the decor direction and supplies, and all the florals. Below are some behind the scene shots of the event. Professional photos coming soon! To see some images of the bride & groom, we have professional photos on our Facebook page. Stunning couple they are!

To Shirin and Brian, it was such a pleasure to be apart of your special day.
