To say that we were excited when Pantone announced Viva Magenta as its 2023 Color of the Year would be an understatement. The brand describes the shade as “brave and fearless, and a pulsating color whose exuberance promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration, writing a new narrative.” Simply put, Viva Magenta symbolizes all the love and emotion you feel when you are about to marry your soulmate and start a new life together. Still, it’s a bold color that demands attention, which may make some hesitant about incorporating it into their big day scheme. Does this sound like you? From flowers to attire and accessories to beauty, read on for beautiful ideas on how to use Viva Magenta in your wedding.

As much as a wedding dress should make a bride look beautiful, it should make her feel beautiful and confident. Scrolling through the looks on Loulette Bride’s website, you get a sense that this sentiment is threaded throughout the collection – these dresses are made to be worn by every type of woman. Behind the Brooklyn-based label is founder Marteal Mayer whose distinct vision and philosophy are evident at first glance. After years of working in fast fashion, Marteal knew everything she didn’t want her independent bridal line to be – exclusive, cookie-cutter, and wasteful. Marteal set out to make bridal wear that she could be proud of – custom pieces that connected deeply with customers on a myriad of levels. Inclusivity, sustainability, and craftsmanship have been the driving forces guiding the label from the very beginning. For Loulette Bride, designing with passion + purpose means not only making beautiful wedding attire, but also using recycled fabrics, donating a portion of sales to a new charity each season, planting a tree for every dress sold, supporting the LGBTQ+ community, and running a fashion mentorship program for students of color.

Lauren and Patrick met for their first date in October 2017. They met the classic way you meet anyone in NYC…on Bumble. “We were both nervous, so things got off to a rocky start,” Lauren says. “But after I mentioned that I grew up listening to Billy Joel –  who Patrick also listened to with his best friends growing up in Cold Spring Harbor – we instantly clicked. The night continued with margaritas and many laughs, exchanging stories about growing up in New York, and a failed attempt to go to karaoke – it was Tuesday and they closed at 10 pm.” On their second date, Patrick told Lauren that he was likely moving to Malaysia in six months for work. “I initially shrugged it off. But that following week, Patrick got a call that he was to transfer in four weeks,” she says. After making the most of the time they had left together, the couple decided to commit to a long-distance relationship. “The next two years were filled with so much travel and adventure…so lots of time in an airport!” Lauren remembers.

Caroline and Ben first met in 2015 when they both were working for a tech start-up in New York City. “Ben was my on-board buddy. He welcomed me to the company environment and my role within it,” Caroline remembers. They became fast friends, often going to lunch and happy hour together. “We were both in relationships at the time. Everything was work related, but there was always an underlying feeling that this could be more. Those romantic feelings were finally addressed that following summer.” Not yet on the same page of what they wanted in terms of a relationship, they dated on and off for the following six months. In an age where dating apps play instant matchmaker, their long, more traditional courtship comes across as refreshing. “Looking back, this period helped build the relationship that Ben and I have now,” Caroline says. “We had been colleagues, friends, then ‘more than friends.’ By the time we were ready to commit, we knew each other inside and out.”

During the past few months, we’ve watched as famous brides led the big return to extravagant and luxurious celebrations of love. Limitless budgets and access to the top stylists, designers, and jewelers aside, many of these famous women experienced a journey to saying ‘I Do’ that felt somewhat relatable. We read about how these wedding stories had their ups and downs with chapters that included putting nuptial plans on hold due to COVID, social media friendships established during lockdown that grew into promise of life-long commitment, and rekindling an old flame that flickered years before. What all these brides have in common though is how each made sure that their walk down the aisle was done in style. We were left dreaming of gorgeous wedding day attire without limitations. From jaw-dropping gowns to sparkling jewelry to beautiful bouquets, we are breaking down the looks of our favorite celebrity brides from summer 2022.
