Dress Du Jour: Oh Taffeta, My Taffeta

If you’re looking for Southern simplicity with a bit of a couture twist, look no further than this dress designed by the prestigious Jim Hjelm!

Jim Hjelm Blush Style 1208 – This sculpted fit and flare taffeta gown has a beautiful simplicity about it, with an added detail that gives it its’ much needed pop.

The one-shoulder gown has statement floral accents on the neckline with a cluster of crystals in the center of each. The floral accents highlight the bride’s face and the simplicity of the rest of the gown allows the bride’s natural beauty to shine through!

The Blush Jim Hjelm line can be found at the Wedding Angels Bridal Boutique in Marietta. Their boutique has gowns from $500 – $5,000 so you’re sure to find the dress of your dreams no matter the budget!

Wine down your week…

Okay readers… Time to party just for the sake of partying… Who needs an alliteration to offer an excuse to imbibe with your favorite aged grape juice? It’s Thursday and we’re going to clink our wine glasses to the end of the middle of the week!

Join StudioWed, in partnership with The Atlantan Brides and more for a chic Thursday evening of mingling with industry friends at Atlantic Station’s Millenium Gate. This event is free to attend, but you must let us know you’re coming! Hope to see you there.

StudioWed Open House opens up new possibilities!

If you’ve yet to join me here at the studio for one of our monthly open houses, man you really should. Not only does the talent on showcase change every month, but the bar continually raises with our vendors pulling out all the stops to show you what they’re made of. Whether you just said “yes” and have no idea where to start, you’re knee-deep in 6-month out to-do lists, or your wedding is in less than 6 weeks and you need some last minute details locked up (not naming any names here…), there’s something eye-opening (and stress-relieving) waiting for you at the open house. Meet vendors, check out portfolios, gets hands on with creative ideas and even sample a sugary snack while you mingle.

Take a look at the fun we had at February’s Open House! Thanks to Janet Howard Studio for her (always) beautiful handiwork behind the lens.

Brides signed our exclusive guest book and took home a Wedding Day Emergency Kit packed with the essential “no-emergency-here” boxes.

Lyght House Cocktails put the strawberry on top with ice-cold shots of White Chocolate Strawberry Cooladas… Thank you ma’am, may I have another!?

Sift! Dessert Boutique made us fear our dress fittings with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip…

…homemade Snickerdoodles and White Chocolate Raspberry Shortbread Cookies……

…What’s that? Oh yeah – Sift! prides itself in great tasting (no, really), low-fat options. Bring on the measuring tape!

P3 Lab helped us look our best with a sleek mini make-over…

The Savage Garden spruced up the front window with a luscious display of green and gold Terrariums.

For Goodness Cakes failed to disappoint with yummy samples of Strawberry, Toasted Butter Pecan, Cinnamon (personal fave!) and White Chocolate Raspberry cake.

Venue Spotlight – 200 Peachtree

You’ve got your ballrooms… and then you’ve got your BALLROOMS! That is the only way to begin describing the glorious space that once was Atlanta’s greatest shopping mecca (Macy’s). With marble floors, larger-than-life stained glass windows and even-bigger-than-that sparkling crystal chandeliers, 200 Peachtree is truly a one-of-a-kind luxury venue. But the fabulousness doesn’t stop at dance floors…

Upstairs, guests overlook your show-stopping reception from a swanky balcony. Behind that,you’ve got a brick-enclosed room perfect for eclectic ceremonies and smaller gatherings. Downstairs, the jaw-dropping offerings continue with an enormous raw space they’ve appropriately deemed, “The Gallery.” It’s truly like nothing else in the city.But don’t take our word for it…

Want to get a closer look? StudioWed just confirmed them as the latest stop on our City Chic Venue Tours happening this Sunday! There are still a few spots left, so check out the details at and get your tickets today!
