Move out of the way, Tradition! This season’s Bride is edgy, daring, and oh-so-seductive! Here’s why:

Bold Accessories
Even Carolina Herrera, a designer known for creating classic and timeless looks, is keeping up with the trends by adding bold fabric chandelier earrings (like those pictured below) to her classic looks.

Headpieces can add a “wow” element to your overall look.  If you’re thinking of going bold from the neck up, consider adding some bling with a piece like the Great Gatsby-inspired design below by our very own Christina Mays of 27 Dresses Designs.  If you’re having a more natural and earthy wedding, work with your florist and play with your options involving fresh flowers

Shoes, Shoes, Shoes!  “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” – Bette Midler… Or, more importantly, she’ll conquer the aisle on her Wedding Day! We at AKM are obsessed with the glamorous details on these shoes.  So. Much. Drama.

Texture, Tulle, and T…color.
This season, wedding dresses look more like sculptures with non-traditional colors, texture, open backs, and lacy sleeves dominating the runways (and my Facebook newsfeed) for Spring 2015 Bridal Fashion Week.  Need I say more? These gorgeous dresses speak for themselves.  They are playful, feminine, fun, and make a statement. The artist in me cannot get enough.

Dark, Sultry, Mysterious…
No, we aren’t talking about your handsome future hubby. We are talking makeup! We are so excited that more brides are going with dark, smokey, cat eyes. To prove it, check out this sneak preview of our modern-edgy photoshoot by local photographer Aaron Brown and makeup by The Beauty Pros:
