Oh So Audrey


The classic movies, the iconic style…everyone knows Audrey Hepburn! Not only is Ms. Hepburn a major film and fashion icon, she’s also a huge inspiration to brides with incredible vintage style. My advice to Audrey-esque brides? A boatneck, tea-length gown, a short and sweet veil, cute bows, little white gloves, pops of red (via lipstick, Louboutins, and pretty table settings), and adherence to all of Audrey’s fabulous advice.

{“Everyone has his own style. When you have found it, you should stick to it.”}

{“You can always tell what kind of a person a man really thinks you are by the earrings he gives you.”}

{“If I’m honest, I have to tell you I still read fairy tales and I like them best of all.”}

{“I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles.”}

{“Let’s face it, a nice creamy chocolate cake does a lot for a lot of people; it does for me.”}

{“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.”}

{“Paris is always a good idea.”}

{“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.”}

{“If I get married, I want to be very married.”}

Who inspires you?
