2019 is almost halfway through and so far, the runway has been ablaze with beautiful silhouettes, breathtaking designs and the perfect overall romantic aura that only the wedding season can have.

With styles such as sparkles all over and big bows that every 80s lover will want, the trends range from simplistic to over-the-top. In short, the theme is all dramatic and we’re definitely here for all of it.

So for those lovely brides-to-be who will be walking down the aisle toward the love of their life in the months to come, here is a quick lowdown on the many bridal trends of 2019 that you’ll definitely want to go with for your wedding dress!

1. Inspiration from Versailles

Ruffs, puffs and confection-like bridal skirts are back in fashion! Mostly inspired from the courtly dresses of yore, 2019 bridal fashion offers Victorian-style silhouettes, high necklines and gauzy full sleeves. Taking away from the traditional styles, this style is uber-romantic but over-the-top and dramatic. Hey, we’re not complaining!

2. Feather-Esque

Spread your wings and layer some plume, this trend focuses on adding plush to the dress’s form with an ethereal, edgy design. Somewhat reminiscent of the angel-from-heaven look, this style adds texture and flair to minimal-style dresses.

3. A Tinge of Blue

Harking back to trends from the older days, we’re seeing a revival of bridal gowns in color, mostly blue to commemorate the original color of love. Accentuated by a gold or silver sash or accessories, blue dress personifies the light airy feel we all want from a lace or tulle dress.

4. Say Yes to Capes

Going against the fashion icon’s Edna Mode’s words, capes are indeed coming back in fashion and making waves! Available in a number of styles, from full-length dramatic to sheer with embroidery, wedding capes are substituting veils, offering more movement and ease through their silhouette.

5. Say Yes to Veils too

Priyanka Chopra’s 75-foot tulle veil is probably what inspired designers to go out with veils this season! Excessively long and dramatic, many veils now feature embroidery, appliquéd lace pieces and more to add to that distinct look.

6. A Statement of Sleeves

Alongside bows, another large statement design addition is the sleeve! It’s up to you if you want raglan, puff or some detachable options for when the reception party gets going. So if you’ve got a traditional gown that could use some zhuzhing, adding some sleeves would work perfectly in adding that wow-factor!

7. High Hemlines

It’s all about making it short and sassy! If you’ve got the legs for it, wearing a pair of killer heels with a gorgeous, embellished tea length or mini dress would be the perfect choice.

All In A Day’s Work—Foot Care Tips For Heel Lovers

Most of us have a love/hate relationship with high heels. You can live with them but you can’t live without them either; because really, what looks as good as a pair of absolutely gorgeous heels! And quite honestly, your wardrobe is pretty much incomplete without a couple of pairs of heels.

But it’s one of the worst feelings when you’ve prepared yourself to get through the day in heels, only to find yourself cursing the moment you took that decision. Like we said—it’s complicated.

For those of us who can’t deny how incredibly confident we feel in high heels, here are a few tips to ensure your feet are taken care of throughout the day.

If The Shoe Fits

Now, you may not be Cinderella but your heels need to fit you properly. A size too big and your feet will feel tired too soon and be in excruciating pain. A size too small and you just might be donning blisters for the rest of the day. Your shoe size will change over the years. For new mothers, your foot size can go up by one by the time you have kids.

Have your feet measured whenever you go out to buy shoes. Better safe than sorry, as they say!

 Know Your Foot Type

You probably don’t hear this one too often but it’s super important to know your foot type. While a podiatrist can guide you better to understanding your foot type more accurately, you can even try a hack at home.

An easy way to do this is by wetting your foot and blotting it on a piece of construction paper. From here you can assess how flat or arching your foot is to understand which soles might work for you better.

The Chunkier The Better

Thin heels and stilettos cause your feet to wobble around and put more pressure on them while walking. While it’s okay to wear stilettos occasionally, thicker heels make for a much suitable option for daily wear.

Take A Break

Take frequent breaks in the day to take your shoes off and stretch out your feet and ankles. You can do this while at your desk and even slip into more comfortable flats when there isn’t much walking around to do. Try out stretches that target the front of your foot; point your toes out and down to stretch out the calf muscles and tendons.

If you’re looking for a more stylish substitute for your heels, glam up your regular old flats with Rebel Jane Footbands! Available in multiple colors and 3 different widths, these detachable footwear straps are perfect for flats and high heels!

Top Engagement Ring Trends From The Past, Present And Future

Engagement rings date back to the Ancient Egyptians if not earlier. Many Ancient Egyptian bodies were discovered with a metal wire around the left ring finger which the Egyptians believed connected directly to the heart.

There’s some evidence that suggests that the Romans also gave engagement rings as a promise to wed their partners one day.

Engagement rings may have been around for a long time but they didn’t always consist of a diamond; diamond engagement rings came along much later towards the end of the Victorian era.
