Badgley Mischka Wedding Shoes

It’s no secret that Mark Badgley and James Mischka, the designers behind the label Badgley Mischka,  have created some of the most beautiful dresses, shoes, and accessories that have ever walked down a red carpet — and an aisle!  Badgley Mischka wedding shoes have become a particular favorite of mine.  Here are a few I’ve been admiring lately!

Badgley Mischka Wedding Shoes

Shopping sources use affiliate links from sponsors: 1.Giovana T-Strap Sandals at Nordstrom  2. ‘Hollie’ Pumps in Anthracite, also comes in Ivory, Navy, and a pretty muted gold called Platino Metallic   at Nordstrom 3. ‘Giana’ Satin D’Orsay Pumps  4. ‘Gayla’ Peep Toe Sandal 5. ‘Landmark’ Sandal at Shopbop 6.Gem Pointy Toe Satin Pump in White  7. ‘Giles’ II Sandals in Platino, also comes in silver 8. ‘Melaney’ Strappy Wedge Sandals

Besides the beauty of these bridal shoes, what I love the most about Badgley Mischka heels, is that one is able to get a designer bridal shoe a price that isn’t approaching the cost of your monthly rent or mortgage. It’s certainly a treat to buy these, but you could own 3 pairs of Badgley Mischka shoes for the price of some other designer heels! I especially love the jeweled and embellished details Badgley Mischka has added to the straps and to the back of the heel ( Kiara, Gene and Gem all have this pretty feature). Badgley Mischka also does embellishment in the front, like Hollie, Jeannie,and Giana —  and beautiful floral accents that are chic, never cutesy like these Calla lilly wedding shoes called Meribeth.

For those wanting a little stability and comfort and a guarantee against sinking in the grass or sand, Badgley Mischka also creates some of prettiest wedges and flat sandals.  (I wore wedges for my own outdoor wedding, and I liked the comfort and, thanks to a pretty design, I felt like they were still elegant. However, if you do decide on a heel, Solemates will help you from sinking in grass!

Modern Wedding Guest Attire

With the upcoming wedding season, you may be wondering what to wear to various types of weddings. I’m going to try to do more posts that help with specific –and sometimes unusual– wedding styles and dress codes! Today, we’ll tackle what to wear to a modern wedding!

Modern wedding guest attire

Sources and shopping links in italics are from our affiliated sponsors.  Dress: Halston Heritage Orchid Sunrise Dress from Rent the Runway | Earrings: Sarah Magid Blue Pointilist Earrings at Rent the Runway | Ring: Oscar de la Renta Star Cocktail Ring | Cuff:  Sarah Magid Pink Masquerade Cuff  | Clutch: Royal Mail Clutch by Lilly Pulitzer | Sandals: Missguided Clara Strappy Sandals

When I first laid eyes on this dress, I knew it was collage-worthy! The beautiful orchid color, the fun high-low hem, and those blue shoes — one look and I knew I needed to do a styled look! At first I was going to title and style this for a beach wedding — and I still think this floaty colorful dress would be wonderful at a chic seaside event — but once I started looking at this style, I realized it was also really a great gown for a modern wedding. And, since I haven’t done a specifically modern wedding guest look in a few years, I knew it was high time I created a new collage for it.

Now what is a modern wedding, you ask? Technically it really would be any present-day wedding — and I do think this dress is versatile enough to go to nearly all types of weddings if this dress is your style. However, I think it would be a particularly fantastic dress choice for a wedding held in what I think of as a decidedly modern wedding: a wedding in a contemporary art gallery, a chic restaurant, a rooftop deck,  or some hip industrial space. Often a it’s city wedding, or any wedding where you know the aesthetic will be fashionable and cutting edge. For weddings like that, you most likely want a dress that reflects the chic and sophisticated style of the event. This is exactly that sort of gown!

I love the way Rent the Runway put bright blue sandals with this dress, and I didn’t want to compete with that — it’s beautiful! (However, if you can’t quite picture yourself buying blue shoes, gold heels would be my second choice.) Cobalt blue and aqua are two of my favorite colors for pairing with a pinkish-purple orchid dress like this, so I decided to play that up color palette even more. Geometric accessories in bright, punchy colors just set off all the fresh aspects of this dress.  The cuff bracelet has a bit of pink, and a bit of purple on the opposite side, so it can match, or contrast — whichever you prefer! With the exception of the sandals, all of these pieces are from Rent the Runway, so you can rent them all as you see them here, or pick other accessories you love. Speaking of modern dressing trends, the ability to rent a dress is one of my favorite modern-day innovations! It’s such a great way to go, especially if you have all sorts of weddings to attend this season ( Hint: try their Unlimitedoption to keep those dresses coming!) . If you love this style as much as I do, I’ve also included a few more of this loose-fitting pretty maxi dresses in the shop section below, and I have a whole page of maxi dress picks for the season. If you’re a gentleman looking for modern wedding attire, I’m thinking ASOS  has a great section of suits that really has you covered, and I’ll be doing fully-realized style idea for the fellows soon!

3 of the Best Lipsticks for Brides

Introducing Clinique’s ‘Kiss the Bride’ Collection

Wedding lipsticks

Best Lipsticks for Weddings

This post about best wedding lipsticks uses partnered links. In addition, Clinique has graciously provided complimentary samples of all lipstick shades for our trial and review.  All words and opinions are those of the editor of Dress for the Wedding.

I mainly show dresses and accessories here on Dress for the Wedding, but on your wedding day, your makeup is definitely one of those key accessories! And perhaps no part of your makeup style gets more attention on that day than your lips! Your wedding day lipstick not only needs to be a special stand-out shade, but also needs to be long-lasting and a pretty color that gives you a little bit of presence in pictures. Even if you usually wear just swipe of gloss, on your wedding day it’s best to have a special color with plenty of pigment to accent your smile, and to highlight that all-important, you-may-kiss-the-bride smooch!

Lipstick is such key part of your bridal look, but surprisingly there haven’t been many choices for lipsticks specifically made for weddings. Until this season when Clinique, realizing this lack of choices, created the perfect wedding day lipstick! Using their classic and much-loved Long Last Lipstick formulation, Clinique launched Kiss the Bride Collection: 3 wedding-perfect shades for brides of all skin tones. These wedding lipsticks are so pretty that even though they meant to be a special treat for the bride, brides might find it in their hearts to share these shades with their bridesmaids.

Lipsticks for your wedding day

I had the chance to try these 3 new bridal lipsticks from Clinique and I can say without hesitation that these are the perfect lipsticks to wear for your wedding! For starters, the Long Last formula is the ideal mix of hydration and staying power. You’ll be kissing your new spouse, giving your relatives a hug and peck on the cheek,  eating, drinking, and toasting– and through it all, posing for pictures! Trust me, you really want a long-wear lipstick that requires minimal thought, because you really won’t have time for any touch ups!  Coral lipstick for weddings - Clinique's 'Will You?'

Will You?, the perfect pink lipstick for brides from Clinique.

The three new shades in the Kiss the Bride Collection are aptly named for the wedding: ‘Will You?’ is a gorgeous pink coral color that gives just the right bright flush to your lips. Next up is ‘ I Do’, a sophisticated berry red. I love a classic red lip, but I have a hard time finding the right red color right out of the tube, but this one is great! It’s not too harsh, but definitely gives your lips definition and that polished red look. Bonus: the berry undertones make your teeth so white! The last color, ‘Honeymoon’ is a neutral shade that has a gorgeous golden glint to it. ‘Honeymoon’ is perfect choice for a natural look or a beach bride, and definitely one to pack for your honeymoon to even further accent your post-wedding glow!

While it’s nice to have a special lipstick just for the day of the wedding (and you should, just like wearing a signature perfume), these shades will appeal to you for everyday and special occasion wear as well! And if you’re not a bride-to-be, remember: it’s that season for bridal showers! Any of these lip shades would make a great addition to a little wedding day emergency kit or a bridal gift basket!

Once you’ve decided on your color, to get the perfect lasting pout: 1. prepare your lips with All About Lips; 2. line your lips with the matching Quickliner for Lips liner; 3. apply your favorite shade of Kiss the Bride Lipstick, pop it all in your wedding clutch, and you’ll be ready to go down the aisle! Kiss the Bride  lipstick is exclusively sold online.

Romantic Wedding Gown

This styled look featuring a romantic lace wedding gown, has been generously sponsored by Lillian West. 


With any luck, you’ve been finding several wedding gowns that you’re longing to try on from our series of Lillian West wedding dresses that we’ve been showcasing each week. This week’s lace gown will undoubtedly speak to your romantic side.  It is Style 6365 from the 2015 Lillian West Collection. Style 6365 is a strapless wedding dress with all-over Alencon lace and fit-and-flare styling. Shown here with a removable jacket, this gown’s open neckline gracefully drapes along the shoulder and ends in a short sleeve. This lace overlay also adds an empire waist look, with lace edging high on the bodice.

This bridal gown is as charming and romantic as a rose in an English garden, and it would be well-suited to a wedding there as well. To pick up on this bridal gown’s dreamy, organic appeal, I’ve chosen light sage green accessories, and some floral accents in the invitation and theme.
