The Location: The wedding took place at the Church Estates Vineyards in Malibu (Fergie and Josh Duhamel were also married there in January) overlooking the ocean at the chateau – shown here.

The Dress: Bedingfield wore a gorgeous strapless, white, couture gown with an A-line skirt by Vera Wang. Looking for something similar for your wedding day? Make an appointment and come in to the one and only Vera Wang location in NJ. NO SALES TAX LADIES!

The Bridesmaids: Her four bridesmaids wore short sleeveless purple gowns with spaghetti and halter straps. This Cotton Cady Lydia Dress from the J.Crew Collection is one of many short and chic purple gowns the line offers. Also check out Watters, and Dessy for classic short style bridesmaids dresses.

Bridal Shoes Made Easy

At Exquisite Bride we are asked every day about bridal shoes. It's very hard to find pretty, comfortable shoes that reflect the theme of your wedding day look. Visit my friends at My Glass Slipper and shop for Designer Bridal Shoes like Badgley Michka, Giuseppe Zanotti, Stuart Weitzman. You can also look through there Bridal Shoes.com and Prom Shoes.com site and check out at one place. So you get to look through three shoe stores and easily check out from one place. If your in the New York, or New Jersey Area visit the NY location by making an appointment. I posted some of my favorites above. Brides you must have shoes for your first fitting so start looking.

Wedding Fashion Trend

Bridal fashion trends are looking fun this year. From adding belts to wedding dresses, to brooches, and applique. Some bridal gowns are coming with tierd ruffles. Frou frou ruffles or flat...ruffles is where it's at. Add a little pizzaz to your classic gown with small details from a thin belt to a wide belt. Belts are huge in bridal fashion because they create a flattering waist line and can give the gown a bit of glamour.

Marie Antoinette French Inspiration

As soon as I saw this I wanted to show you. I thought the movie was so vibrant and decadent as that era was. I found this inspiration board on Style Me Pretty. The board is created by Wiley Valentine and centered around the wedding colors, and of course the beautiful wedding invitations they created. A very girly girl theme with pinks, soft blue, yellow, and ivory. The invitation is really the window of your wedding look. It's the first thing your guests see.

Interview with Brides.com as Bridal Experts

In a recent interview with Brides.com Remy Quinones of Exquisite Bride gave her expert opinion on one of her favorite dresses of the season. The Parigi gown from Rivini "I love the gown because it is classic with clean lines and a bit of a modern twist," she says. "Many of our brides love elegant and sophisticated wedding gowns that have some unique detail or embellishment. They want just the right amount of glitz without going over the top. This gown is particularly is versatile because of the fact that it can be paired with a variety of accessories. It is simple enough to allow the bride who prefers to wear several pieces of jewelry to do so without detracting from the gown. It is also classic enough to wear with no jewelry or just one or two great pieces. I would probably pair this gown with a fabulous bracelet and a great pair of earrings and nothing else. The gown works well with a variety of veils and would look wonderful paired with anything from a short chic veil such as one of the new cage or French cut veils to a long, classic cathedral veil."—Kim Forrest, Editor, Brides New Jersey

Blue & Orange Wedding Theme Ideas

Wedding theme colors are very hard to choose so we wanted to give you an example of how you can tie in some of your colors to your gifts, table setting, and pictures. It takes a good eye to find the right back drop for your pictures, so don't skip out on a photographer because the pictures will last a life time. I love how the Mural in Hoboken tied in the brides blue ribbon and orange theme. Happy colors that bring out a brides summer wedding theme.

Wedding Cake Alternatives

Top Row by Vanilla Bakeshop, Second Row by Rebecca Thuss, Third Row by Rebecca Thuss and Red Ribbon Studio, Fourth Row by Taste

I love cake, cookies, cupcakes and candy....yummy! Soo when I saw this elegant post on Style Me Pretty I wanted to let you know, it's ok to have a decadent selection of sweets to choose from other than a grande wedding cake. You can tie in your favorite color to your favorite candy and have a visually pleasing dessert bar. Incorporate your flowers to the area and you can add to your look. If you are not doing a wedding ake, you really have to go all out and have a substantial dessert selection for your guests. An array of fresh baked pies, a selection of great Italian pastries, a hodge podge of miniature cakes in your favorite flavors. Something that guests with a sweet tooth can really look forward to!
