Revenge wedding dress and decor displays elegance and glamour
Fans of ABC’s hit drama Revenge have long awaited the wedding of Emily Thorne and Daniel Grayson. Season 3’s Mid-Season Finale didn’t disappoint with a dramatic climax and equally dramatic wedding featuring beautiful designer gowns and lush ceremony florals. Wedding planner and designer, Carmen Fuentes, takes a look at the bridal fashion and event décor from the episode as well as show brides how to achieve the glamorous look.
For their wedding photo shoot, Emily wore a stunning “Fantasy” wedding gown by Designer Monique Lhuillier. The shoot looked beautifully flawless as Emily sits on an over-the-top, flower-adorned swing.
Her actual wedding dress took a much more understated, romantic tone. Jill Ohannesson, the show’s costume designer, crafted a custom ethereal strapless Alençon lace column dress with an asymmetrical tulle overskirt that reminded us of a few particularly romantic pieces from Monique Lhuillier’s and Reem Acra’s Spring 2014 collections. A delicate veil sits atop her loosely curled hair, and a pearl cuff encircles one wrist.
Emily’s mother-in-law, Victoria Grayson wore a mermaid-style burgundy, one-shoulder gown from Vera Wang’s 2014 Spring collection.
The sister of the groom and bridesmaid, Charlotte wore a stunningly sleek BCBG black cutout dress and gold fringe bangle.
With all eyes on the leading ladies’ dresses of choice, we can’t forget to mention the newly married Mr. and Mrs. Grayson’s enormous wedding cake. This six-tier confection, features floral toppers and luxe ivory lace and pearl-like embellishments.
Florals for the ceremony were in tones of blushes and ivory and consisted of hydrangeas and roses. The one thing that seemed to be missing was the bridal bouquet. The groom’s boutonniere was a white cymbidium orchid while the other men had a white rose.
For the reception decor, Tiffany blue was accented in the linens, chair sashes and cushions while the primary colors of blush and ivory were maintained in the centerpieces. A modern black and white checkered dance floor created the perfect foundation underneath a beautiful white tent.
A quick note for all the brides wondering where the beautiful nuptial took place, the Grayson wedding took place at the very beautiful Wayfarers Chapel in Palos Verdes, CA.
