Dress your best as a couture Halloween bride

Lovely ladies and followers of Nataya Couture dresses, today, we want to share our ideas for offbeat Halloween brides.

Whether you are a traditional bride or prefer to define yourself by extravagance, we have repeatedly been asked whether or not these romantic couture dresses go with a Halloween theme. Read on for some fun inspiration!

Every bride wants an unforgettable and unique wedding. If you plan your ceremony between October 28th and November 2nd, you can’t help but be swept up in the spirit of Halloween. So, we proudly present four ideas for brides who have chosen extravagantly couture themed weddings.

Jazz Wedding

If you go with any of the following themes, Voodoo, Jazz, Louisiana, New Orleans, or a ferry with the Big Band style, we sincerely recommend the Venetian cream or Venetian White wedding dress by Inga Nataya Couture.

These dresses exude couture with a jazzy, Charleston feel. Either dress is a perfect choice if you need the freedom to move as you dance the night away with you new husband.

Downton Abbey

To tell the truth, Downton Abbey has become quite the wedding trend during the past two years. However, Lady Mary and her sisters’ style is increasingly popular for Halloween parties as well. For those who want to combine these two important days, we think you’ll enjoy this next lineup.

Of course, white is the classic wedding color. However, as long as we are in the Halloween mindset, we encourage you to consider alternative colors for your Edwardian era grand affair.

Violet and lilac both look stunning when set against the vanilla twilight. We bring you the River Fairy Dress in lilac and the Sultry Elizabeth in lavender for your Edwardian style Halloween wedding.

Vamp Style Bride

The vamp style bride image is ideal for brides with porcelain skin tones and black or blonde hair. Our Raphaela Dress will really pop next to your groom’s indigo-black tuxedo.

The Raphaela White Dress and Ivory Morning Gown with both give you a Dracula bride look that accentuates your porcelain skin and the inimitable color of your gorgeous locks.

These Snow White-esque dresses are the perfect couture choice for any vamp style wedding.

Steampunk Trend

Finally, the most popular among all couture brides, especially when it comes to All Saint’s and Halloween weddings, is steampunk. This unique combination of Victorian gothic and industrial style really pairs with just one dress represented in the Inga Nataya Couture collection, the white Dahlia Gown.

The unusual corset, the uneven extra punk bottom and neo-Victorian look of the dress are an ideal combo of steampunk and Halloween. Choose a bowler hat with a veil instead of the traditional floral veil. You can get away with a white or ivory bowler hat and still look steampunk, but we sincerely recommend wearing black shoes with white flowers or a black bowler hat with a white veil to make it truly steampunk!

The best selling dress from the Inga Nataya Couture collection

Hello, dear ladies, today we’re sharing our thoughts on the “Venetian Creme Dress” and what makes it one of the best-selling, most versatile silhouettes in the Inga Nataya Bridal Couture collection.

Suitable as a mother-of-the-bride gown for younger moms between the ages of 40 and 50, the dress’ nude color will make you look younger still if you’re lucky enough to be blessed with a supple and firm décolleté zone! It can also be worn as a bridesmaid’s dress if the bride has chosen something more traditional and long-trained. Perfectly suited for garden-style and other home-made ceremonies, the piece is especially ideal for second or even first time brides going with an informal, Gatsby-style theme. Choose from these taste-making choices, or come up with one of your own! It may very well be one of the best evening gowns for any occasion — from the celebrated red carpet to less formal parties and art openings.

What makes this dress so versatile? It starts with the color. Nude, beige, and cream works well with any given skin tone at any age and looks great in any light, against any backdrop, especially:

  • The exposed, natural light at the beach and seaside weddings
  • Simple, naturalistic garden lighting at garden-inspired family gatherings
  • The dusky, natural light of the forest, botanical garden, or orangery
  • Indoor illumination, whether subdued or enhanced, for events set in hotels, resorts, restaurants, wedding parties, and other ceremonies
  • Night-time illumination of weddings and other equally grand evening affairs

Apart from the color is the style of the dress. Hardly traditional, the ruche sleeves and unique straps — let alone the inventive stitches and intricate embroidery — say Gatsby, instead. The secret behind its stylish versatility means that it can be worn either by the betrothed or her guests, if the bride has opted for a princess-style dress with full skirt and isn’t at risk of being outdone.

The unique cut and neutral color of the dress open up a range of footwear possibilities. The number of colors that will go with this dress are endless, but here are a few to get you started:

  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Nude and cream
  • Black
  • Ivory
  • Orange (if paired with the headpiece)
  • Dark blue (if paired with headpiece)

So, you may not have to buy that new pair of shoes, after all! Your favorite heels or flats will probably look just great with the easy to work with look of the Inga Nataya Venetian Creme Dress!

Here’s wishing you a happy experience with this dress no matter which of its many stylish directions you choose to pursue!

Peach Trend in Bridal Couture Wear

Hello, dear customers and brides-to-be!

Recently, we talked about couture dresses in lavender and violet shades. Peach is another color that is becoming more and more popular, even in more conservative countries that traditionally prefer ivory and white wedding dresses. Today, we will focus on peach and apricot warm shades for your wedding couture dress.

Style

We start with the new wedding couture dress, Dahlia in Peach, by Inga Nataya Couture. The dress is not as vintage in style as many of her other famous pieces. Inga Nataya is also known as the designer of informal wear, too. The dress has a very informal bodice and a unique bottom. The style and silhouette for the dress is perfect for those who love full skirts and waist accentuation but that don’t like to wear heavy corsets or that don’t like a lot of material on the bottom. The dress remains airy while still offering a full skirt, uniqueness, waist accentuation and open shoulder lines. This dress also goes perfectly with accessories, such as a veil. However, there are also alternatives to the veil for this type and color dress.

Accessories Round out the Ensemble

Of course, this dress looks great with the traditional wedding accessories such as a veil. The most suitable length and style is medium (a hip line or waist line) veil made of 2-3 layers. For some brides, though, it may look too traditional and boring. Flowers, such as magnolias, orchids, roses, peons and anemones in peach colors (both vivid and made of organza, silk or tulle) will be perfect as a bridal accessory. The most preferable bag for this dress is the clutch.

Shoes Matter

For shoes, you can match them up with the wide range of accessories for the mentioned dress. Strappy sandals, with 2.5-3.5’’ heels, work perfectly. Another idea is a pair of sandals made of tiny rhinestones in gold, champagne or peach. These colors and jewels are great for this romantic dress. Medium heeled shoes with peep toes in the same color as the dress also work well.

Put Your Hair Up

This dress begs to be paired with something curvy and wavy. Thus, a long airy braid, curls and waves, or twisted wavy bun will be the most suitable for the mentioned style. The dress is very airy, and so should the hair style you choose for your wedding.

Perfect Color for the Romantic Type

This color is not for the purely offbeat, risky bride because it is not too extreme. It is definitely for the romantic person who love classy and romantic pop music, and those who love boho style. It is for those brides-to-be who love uniqueness. It is especially for the lady who wants to imitate the natural style of butterflies, or perhaps some exotic flowers. So, if you count yourself among these beautiful lovers of nature and music, you shouldn’t hesitate to make a call and order this dress. Be a really happy bride in peach blossom!

Wedding Dresses in Edwardian Style

We Inga Nataya devotees regard the early 1900′s as our recent past, but now with the 2013 holidays approaching, we appreciate it was a time of delicate beauty, epitomized by Nataya’s use of the Edwardian style.

Let’s look at a sampling

This ivory morning gown style shows the influence of bohemian designers of the era who dared to feature seamless, non-corseted lines. Nataya has updated this nostalgic style, also known as the Edwardian Lace Style.

The ivory Sultry Elizabeth looks lacy, but when you look closer, those details are achieved by hand-stitched embroidery.

And for a modern twist, Nataya substitutes pastels for traditional colors in thie version.

We may initially lament Nataya’s use of decorative embroidery to imitate the look of lace, but the sultry or soutache trim does not have the scratchiness of lace and is more lightweight. And that’s what we love about the River Fairy dress.

We hope this post has helped you chose a bridal gown that sets a nostalgic tone for your Edwardian wedding.

How to choose the perfect couture makeup for your wedding dress

Hello, dearest lovers of couture dresses and fashion. It’s time to talk about wedding couture makeup. How do you feel about couture-style dresses without couture makeup? We can’t imagine it!

Indeed, every bride needs special makeup for her wedding day, which is possibly the biggest day of her life. However, even a couture bride doesn’t want or need screaming-loud makeup for her wedding dress.

So what’s the difference between traditional, classy bridal makeup and couture bridal makeup?

Couture makeup goes beyond the expected to extraordinary! You might say, “Wait a minute, you just said ‘extraordinary,’ but you also said ‘non-screaming.’” You would be right! Couture bridal makeup is the golden ratio between extraordinary makeup and more modest shades — and that’s what we’re here for – to share tips about how to achieve perfect couture bridal makeup:

Variation 1

The base for couture bridal makeup should be just as it is for a traditional bride; however, you can use more saturated mascara and richer, more frosted eye-shadows. However, with couture you wouldn’t need lipstick at al, or just a subtle shade. This type of makeup goes well with snow white dresses as with Raphaela in white.

Variation 2

Use frosty, modest colors; keep mascara low-key so that the overall makeup look won’t be too loud. Use peach or light blue pastel colors with very little glitter for ideal couture makeup. Your makeup should be icy, yet not screaming. This kind of makeup will work best with creamy-shade bridal dresses such as Raphaela in Cream or Venetian cream.

Variation 3

Use the simplest and classiest colors for bridal makeup with traditional, modest colors, but accentuate one cheekbone or zone near the eye with a swirl, butterfly (wing) or other body art element. The effect will be couture! This is definitely unique makeup art for innovative dress designs such as the Dhalia Dress in white or peach colors.

Variation 4

Use a modest style of makeup, but apply body art to unexpected body parts such as ankles, hands or even the back of the shoulder. One of the most trendy, impactful variations is on the shoulder. For this look, you’ll love the Venetian white dress by Inga Nataya couture.

Variation Number 5

Use rhinestones with simple one or two-toned makeup. And apply rhinestones to just one side of the face; when working with rhinestones or body art, remember to accentuate only one side. Two sides of the face or body will be too much, whereas one side will have a couture look. This makeup style will also work well with Dhalia Dress in peach or snow white.

We wish you a happy couture wedding! Look for more wedding inspiration + expertise with Inga Nataya Couture dresses.

A Pastel Couture Trend: The Lavender Dress

In a past review, we discussed the use of alternative color options for best selling wedding dresses. In this post, you’ll learn more about Inga Nataya couture. Discover the beauty of the River Fairy dress in lilac and the Elizabeth Sultry dress in lavender. Custom tailored pieces by Inga Nataya embrace the beauty of vintage style while updating wedding dresses with non-traditional hues.

Death of the White Wedding

A white or ivory colored wedding dress has been the customary color for weddings for decades. However, today we are seeing an emergence of couture gowns with unpredictable flair and color palette. Couture does not follow trends. Instead, it follows inspiration and innovation. As a result, we are now seeing a kaleidoscope of wedding gown colors including red, green, blue and even Gothic black. One such color creating a stir in the wedding gown business is violet in its varying shades.

Don’t Be a Shrinking Violet

The shades of violet in couture fashion—lavender, mauve and lilac—are even more popular than the main color of the palette. Violet and its varying shades is considered the color of seductiveness and want. It is known as the color of femininity often sported by noble ladies, which makes it an ideal color for your biggest day! If you are choosing a wedding dress in violet, lavender or lilac look for airy and comfortable styles for your gown design.

Timing of Violet Shades

Why violet? If you are marrying in the evening hours, the saturated lavender color will be prominent in during dusk. It will also stand out in the dark or twilight without being too loud. The Elizabeth Sultry dress in lavender is an optimal choice for an evening or night wedding. For morning and daytime we recommend the lilac River Fairy dress, which has a lighter and more pastel coloring.

Wedding Dress Accessories

First to note with dress accessories is that you should choose a veil that coordinates to your color choice and gown style. Also, consider the venue of your wedding. A garden wedding will require you to wear a Downton Abbey style cloche or Edwardian hat. For an indoor wedding in a castle, opt for Swarovski stones or crystals so to make your gown appear to sparkle in the lower levels of light.

A forest wedding or botanical garden wedding is the perfect place to wear a fairy style wreath. If you plan to have a beach or meadow picnic style wedding, consult with your florist as vivid flowers in lavender or lilac hues will go perfectly as a hair accessory. Don’t forget a bouquet of fresh lavender for your wedding, as this fitting and fragrant violet hued flower will go great for practically any theme or venue.

The last thing you will need to select is your wedding shoes. Luckily, there is a vast selection of lavender or lilac wedding shoes on the market, both from couture and mass market brands.
