The much-anticipated bridal collection is full of accessories and apparel that are perfect both for brides and bridesmaids. Anyone looking for chic and slightly boho bridal attire for that emotional walk down the aisle will surely find inspiration in this collection.

When asked about the inspiration behind the bridal line, the CEO and founder of Hill House Home, Nell Diamond, shared that designers drew from the important moments that surround the wedding day, ranging from bachelorette parties, showers, pampering on the day, and the big celebration, of course. The results are light, enigmatic, and incredibly chic ruffle-trimmed dresses and crystal-embellished accessories.

The Hero Item: The Dolly Robe

Like any collection, this one too has its so-called hero item. No, it’s not a dress. It’s a gorgeous silk robe intended for brides to wear while they’re getting ready for the big day, including the famous “getting ready bridal photo shoots.” Diamond shared her excitement about the Dolly robe as it is reminiscent of her Olivier Theyskens wedding dress, and it has a similar feather detailing to match the design of the gown.

Time for Men to Think About Their Wedding Tuxedos

When it comes to wedding planning, grooms are too often left out of the process while their brides-to-be bring strict expectations as to what they want. However, one of those expectations includes what the man will wear.

While they may just want their groom to look good, color-coordinate, and wear a tux, the men still have to choose exactly what kind of tux they will wear. Tuxedos have a lot of components that can make choosing the right style at the last minute a lot more difficult than it looks.

Tuxedos Might Seem Similar

A basic tux can be simple to purchase, but the one for your wedding may require some extra thought. There are different styles to choose from. Many people get tuxedos and suits confused, but there is a major difference between the two. That difference is the use of silk satin in the tuxedo design, which is most prominent on the jacket, more specifically the lapels. Suits, on the other hand, typically don’t have any special lapels or satin leg stripes.

The jacket to your tuxedo and its detail can make all the difference. Pay attention to the fabric, lapels, and the buttons when choosing your look.

  • Lapels: Notch lapels are standard for almost every tux, but you can also choose from shawl collars, peak lapels, and double-breasted jackets.
  • Colors: A traditional tux is black and white, but people often play around the grayscale to stay safe. However, select a color that matches your wedding and the bride.
  • Material: Wool is a common material for most tuxedos, but men can also choose velvet for a more upscale appearance in the fall or winter.
  • Buttons: Fewer buttons often makes for a more formal appearance.

While the jacket is a crucial part of the tuxedo, it is important to put some thought into the rest of the tux as well.
