It’s almost the weekend again and what’s a Thursday morning without a little glamour? Yep, you guessed right! We are off to Hollywood this fine day to see the sights: the Hollywood Sign, the Walk of Fame and the neon glitz of Sunset Strip.

 

Each month on the blog you’ll find a mood board post inspired by a different country or region, making up a blog post series called ‘Worldwide Wedding Inspiration‘. The aim is to get your creative juices flowing for your destination wedding with colours, theme suggestions and ideas from every corner of the globe without being too themed!

 

We have already been won over by Scandi style, enjoyed the essence of The Emerald Isle, been bowled over by bright and beautiful Brazil and felt enchanted by bonnie Scotland, and after seeing the shining starlet’s on the red carpet at this week’s Emmy’s it felt right that this month’s ideas should be inspired by Hollywood.

 

Rather than going down the old Hollywood glamour and film-inspired wedding route which you have no doubt seen before, I wanted to share the vibe of how today’s LA brides are rocking their wedding’s in a classic meets modern Hollywood way.

 

Luxurious hotels surrounded by palm-lined streets create a more formal affair, venues are decorated with decadent chandeliers, hints of blush, metallic touches and subtle sequins and finished with a classic checkerboard dance floor.

 

A timeless red pout and ruby red nails gives brides a celeb-worthy wedding day look; wear with a red-carpet-worthy gown, timeless designer heels, vintage jewellery and a voluminous blow dry or stylized updo.

 

Crisp black and white continues as an underlying theme with the groom and groomsmen in sleek tuxedo suits and the bridesmaids in flashy sequined dresses or formal eveningwear gowns.
