Today's wedding style opens all kinds of opportunities to break from tradition. In today's blog post, we're exploring options that diverge from the miles of ivory silk and lovely Alençon lace (although, admittedly, that is a pattern) to see how the brides that have gone before us have incorporated patterns into their wedding days. And, naturally, at Ellie Wren, we do love how every bride is different. We realize that one bride's polka dots are another bride's pinstripe, so we've also included everything ombre, paisley and filigree, ranging from a subtle hint, to a loud statement piece.
Our Ellie Wren design team is a pretty dynamic group and, while we love everything wedding, we know that sometimes it's fun to indulge in other topics. So, on occasion, we like to share what we're into -- be it a great new book; a new recipe; a new time-saving, life-enhancing life hack; or just something that. is. so. cool. we just need to share the love. This week it's a little bit of this (a new recipe) and a little bit of that (time-saving and just.so.cool).
Every day, brides come to us with unique wedding shoe ideas and ask whether we can incorporate a special symbol, a color palette or a pattern into their wedding shoes or wedding accessories that will mark not only the occasion, but those specific characteristics that make them and their intended unique. And, it's these shoes that really get our hearts pumping. We LOVE exploring ideas and options, sourcing materials and watching the whole thing come together. And so, when Barbara came to us and asked us to create a pair of shoes that celebrated her and her fiance's love of biking, we were all for it.
