Image Source

I'm loving the Blues in the bridal runway! Makes for great wedding inspiration! Today I am featuring a powder blue and pink color inspiration featuring Lela New York's letterpress wedding invitations we recently created for a city bride. Raquel and Henry met when they were in grade school in NYC and wanted to create their invitations with a NYC theme. The result was just a lovely combo of sweet and chic! And the color combo of powder blue and pink is so fresh! What do you guys think?

Friday Frocks | Ines di Santo | Lela's Favorite Wedding Dresses & Picts from the runway | Bridal Market

I loved Ines di Santo's Fall 2012 Bridal Collection! It shined! Literally! For her Fall/Winter 2012 collection, Ines Di Santo was inspired by some of the most fashionable women of style on and off the camera that stepped out in bright, chic and memorable gowns. Ines envisioned her dream designs for noteworthy women of style that epitomized sophisticated elegance. With heavy emphasis on high quality lace fabrics, the collection mixes contemporary looks with traditional lace to create modern luxury couture.

With a level of style befitting the silver screen, runway or aisle, Ines' newest bridal collection is so glam!

Thursday Trend Day | The Social Craze broken down

With social media ever changing and expanding I thought today I will break some down that will actually help you get to know your favorite wedding experts and even help you organize your wedding ideas in one place!

First off, The website, obviously don't have to over this one. We all know that is the first place we look at when getting to know our wedding vendors and what they have to offer but there's more! Next, there is their blog, yes I know duh, your on mine now ;) but many of your photographers and other vendors may not have a big blog dedicated to all things NYC weddings like us ;) but you can see many of their new wedding photography on their blog. It is usually updated more often than their websites and you can get a feeling of their latest work.
Of course you can also visit wedding experts on their Facebook page too. Many wedding experts choose to update this page most of all and even have sneak peaks into other great deals. Wedding blogs such as us ;) usually give our Facebook fans advance notice on specials and giveaways so they are always in the know. You can also share with your friends on Facebook images and posts from directly on their page. And n ow their is a new feature where you can message us directly on FB.

Now, this is new, instagram! Most of you, if you've been reading the latest blogs, know about this already. It is my favorite so far :) I just love it. It's an iPhone and now android based app that is based on images that people share with just a small comment below on each image. It's SO fun! I share more of my life on instagram including my little pup, Matisse! I love him. Plus, I like to share my latest invitations, and front views on the bridal runway shows. And there are cute vintage filters you can use on your photos. You might have seen it already on your Facebook since you can share the images there as well. They are square images and have a vintage look. You can really get to know a persons personality through what images they share.

Ok now this is exciting! Pinterest! Many have already followed me and pinned our blog and website on Pinterest. You basically can signup for it and download a small code that shows up on your browsers tool bar. It is labeled "Pin It" and that is what you do while you browse the web. You can go on your favorite blogs, wedding sites and vendors websites and pin any inspiration you want to save. Pin away! And it will neatly save that info on your pinterest. You can save them in separate "boards" too. No more saving images in random folders on your desktop and not knowing where they came from. Everything is organized and so simple. Everything you pinned can be clicked on and you know exactly where it was from. AMAZING! There is also a cool site called that is pinterest for weddings.

So you maybe saying, "ok now I have signed up for all these social platforms how is anybody suppose to know about it?" Well, they have a new site for that ;) It's called It's like a digital calling/social card. It has a pretty clean look and you can upload any image you want. It lists all your social media that you belong to and includes a little bio of yourself. And right now they are even offering free business cards or calling cards if you are using them socially with your info and very own site link. Cool huh?

So in conclusion don't run from all the social craze, use it! It may help your sanity at the end.
Well, maybe not ;) But it sure is fun!

Oscar de la Renta Spring 2013 Wedding Dresses | Lela's Favorites & Picts from the show | Bridal Market

So what can I say, I LOVED ALL of Oscar de la Renta's new Spring 2013 Bridal collection. It was to die for! Today I'm showing my faves from the collection that was filled with soft blues, ivories and even a red! Of course don't worry ladies these are also going to be available in ivories ;) The collection was ethereal, soft and regal all at the same time. Like I said before, I almost melted!
What do you ladies think? Will you be daring enough to be wearing your something blue?

Photography: Dan Lecca
Photography: Dan Lecca

I'm in LOVE, I know I say that a lot but I nearly melted when I saw all the lovely color all over the bridal runways! The most dramatic were Vera Wang's Wedding dresses in Reds, Scarlets, and deep burgundies. I died! It went perfectly with the trends we, at Lela New York, have forecasted in our inspiration boards just last week! And with our luxury red and black invitations that we featured last week as well. :) Of course all the dresses do also come in whites and creams but for the daring fashionista or the romantic bride it may be THE ONE!
What do you think ladies would you dare? Do you love them as much as I do?!?

I Got Married in A Hurricane | A New York Real Wedding

I LOVE this wedding photographed by the amazing Stylish Hip Weddings.
Can you imagine getting married during a hurricane here in NYC?!
Could it have come out any more beautiful!!!?!

Here is their story as told by Stylish Hip Weddings:
I got a call from the wonderful Leslie of Sage Events at around midnight on a Friday. She had a couple who was scheduled to get married at the Bronx Zoo on Saturday the fateful day of Hurricane Irene. Bronx Zoo cancelled but Lilya and Dan still wanted to get married that weekend so Leslie, their superstar caterer and wedding planner, put together the most beautiful wedding on Sunday at The Metropolitan Building in LIC, Queens. Lilya you are my hero for being the coolest, most patient, gracious and beautiful bride ever!

Rustic Chic meets Urban Glam in this New York Real Wedding at The Foundry

LOVE this Rustic chic meets urban glam wedding photographed by Chowen Photography. Matt and Glennis are accomplished actors and comedians in NYC. They have a love affair with NYC, where they reside. They wanted their wedding to be at the beautiful Foundry in Long Island City as it is a beautiful unique venue with a rustic chic look. They wanted it all to be very simple and special. Their bridal party consisted of a lot friends that are comedians. The bride got ready at the Standard Hotel and special touches of their favorite things: disco balls & wrestle mania were included in their decor. Hilariously cute! What a sophisticated wedding with fun humorous touches. LOVE it!
