The Wedding Movie of the Week! Classic Hollywood Musical – Funny Face

I’ve got the 1956 theater trailer below! How exciting! Audrey Hepburn outfitted by Givenchy in a movie set in Paris already is genius. Throw in Fred Astaire, amazing dance numbers* and the George Gershwin songs, and you have classic Hollywood musical magic.

Bon voyage! As they say in the trailer, you’re going to have a marvelous time!


*did you know Audrey Hepburn was a trained dancer before she started acting?

Cuckoo clocks, Givenchy and other wedding style tips

A blogger we love, Grace Bonney, editor at DesignSponge, tweeted recently that she still loves cuckoo clocks, even though the trend has passed. Trend, shmend, I say!  I tell my brides, trends don’t matter, use what you love.  It’ll cycle back, so you’re always ahead of the crowd.  Think about it – what goes around comes around. Then there are those styles that never leave- think about Audrey Hepburn’s Givenchy wardrobe, or to be more down-to-earth, a great pair of black knee-high riding boots.  Riding boots were in style in 1875, 1975, and I promise women be sporting them when stepping out of their flying cars in 2075, looking as sharp as ever. They’re a classic.  It’s a good concept to keep in mind when you’re thinking about your wedding style. You don’t want to look back at your  pictures and groan about your choices.  Think timeless, and think of what you love, not what the editor of Brides’ magazine is so breathless over.  After all, it’s not her wedding.
