I'm around weddings a LOT; therefore, the ceremony scenes weren't as emotional for me as they seem to be for others in the theater. However, what I did pay careful attention to (besides the decor) was the gown. Much like Princess Catherine, Bella (or for the fans out there - Alice, really) chose a long-sleeve number. Unlike The Princess though, the gown was uber form-fitting, and had an amazing sheer cutout at the back.
I predict we will see a LOT more long-sleeve creations coming in from the designers (we are already starting to). And really...we need them. It seems like 95% of the gowns are there are strapless ... a girl needs options. My guess is we will also see more high neck - low back styles around as well :-)

Aaaand I love hair accessories. There was a time, many moons ago (I'm no spring chick), when I wore a different hair accessory every day. This was before I became a breeder - babies love to pull things out of mama's hair.
So imagine my joy when I stumbled upon this Anthropologie post on my facebook page this morning:
Besides reigning in those pesky strays, hair accessories are irreplaceable when it comes to injecting bold color and crafty texture into your everyday look. Knowing how to style your hair, however, can be tricky when sporting a specific clip, hat or band. Check out how we like to smooth and tease our coifs when it comes to donning spring's must-have hair accessories.
Sleek ponytails and buns pair nicely with turban-style headbands, as they call to mind the just-combed, poolside 'dos of Palm Beach sirens.
Don't be tempted to tuck those locks behind your ear - statement pieces look best with tousled hair that falls toward your face.
Pearly Plaits Headband
It sounds somewhat oxymoronic, but leave the lumps and bumps when crowning your hair with a stretch band. A messy up-do completes the "spiffy in a jiffy" look.
Sparkle Bobbies & Glossy Clips
There's something old-fashioned and ladylike about wearing bobbies and clips in multiples. Try placing them at random in and around a low, twisty knot.
Nothing says retro romance like a slightly cocked (or backwards!) beret reining in a head-full of pin curls. For an unexpected twist, try borrowing your beau's jeff cap.
How will/did you accessorize your hair for your wedding day?
