A Balancing Act

Baker is back and this time she is in a Leanne Marshall classic: the Gabrielle dress! This gown has a magical way of finding elegance in its simplicity. We love a wedding dress like this that provides a blank canvas for the bride to make her own. For example, Baker paired this dress with an edgy makeup look featuring a rocking, bold lip. The accessories really seal the deal on the final look of a dress like this. In Baker’s case, a double-tiered veil, triple-drop earrings by Lindsay Marie, and a show-stopping belt with circular beaded detail.

In this look, Baker shows us a styling tip that applies to every aspect of the wedding: balance. She balances a soft eyeshadow with a rich lip color and a sleek up-do with a flowy skirt. In the same way, we helped her balance a chunky belt and grand veil with a delicate dress. Gabrielle is made in Leanne Marshall’s studio in New York City but it has the versatility to fit any wedding location if you make a point to keep things balanced. We can picture Baker’s look eloping in the mountains of Asheville, NC or dazzling in the ballroom of a grand Charleston hotel if she balances the bold lip with pops of color in other things, like decor and florals.

Just like life, weddings are about balance. The balance of two people coming together into one perfect mix. When it comes to styling your wedding, keep the balance of it all in mind. It’s about bringing together everything the two of you love and want into your special day. Come into London and Lace and let us help you find beauty in the balance.
