Bridal Style: Black Tie Beautiful


It’s time for my second installment of the Bridal Style column! Last time, I shared ideas for the pink-loving, floral perfume-wearing Girly Girl bride, and for today, I chose something a bit more classic and elegant.

The Black Tie Beautiful Bride Essentials

The Black Tie Beautiful Bride looks for any excuse to don an evening gown. She saves up so she can treat herself to diamonds and designer shoes. She can never turn down a Laduree macaron. She finds inspiration in ballet and the opera. She couldn’t imagine getting married in flats.

How would you describe the Black Tie Beautiful bride? Any necessities I missed?








  1. You know I can never say no to an elegant, classic look–gorgeous!:)
