MOVIE MAKEOVER: Steel Magnolias

Nov, 09, 2020

It’s Magazine Monday! And today we have a closer look at our final Movie Makeover from our 2020 glossy pages — the heartwarming (and heartbreaking!) “Steel Magnolias.” Now get your southern belle on and get scrolling, ya hear? 

P.S. When you’re finished, check out our other two movie makeovers: Runaway Bride + Crazy Rich Asians



ORIGINALLY STARRING Julia Roberts + Sally Field

SUGAR + SPICE SYNOPSIS OF FILM Small town southern belle Shelby is getting married! Her story is full of joy and heartbreak, but the strong women in her life are with her at every step — particularly her mother, M’Lynn. Shelby’s wedding is perfectly pink and pink. And then more pink. P.S. Shelby LIVES in our magazine story, y’all. #spoileralert #themovieis30yearsold

Steel Magnolias, 1989

SHELBY “My colors are blush and bashful.”

SHELBY “My colors are blush and bashful, Momma.”

BLUSH + BASHFUL Bride Shelby was ahead of her time, as monochromatic weddings are now all the rage. Heidi and Alex at Over the Top Events perfectly captured this dreamy mother-daughter inspiration at River Bottoms Ranch. Their pink palette is all class, and the florals are feminine and romantic. The paper suite by Eccentricity is pure southern charm — and bursting with magnolias. And what does that wax seal say? Why Blush and Bashful, darlin’.  

THINK PINK Delicate. Divine. Romantic. Radiant. Pink can be a tricky color to work with, but the team at Over the Top Events executed every detail with complete class — from the linens to the goblets to the candles. Plus, the hanging greenery is positively magical. Don’t you just want to sit under there forever? (We’ll be leaving never, River Bottoms Ranch.)

CAKED TO PERFECTION Shelby’s wedding is sweet on cakes. She has her perfectly pink three-tiered vision from Flour & Flourish — complete with magnolia sugar flowers. While her groom’s cake is the cutest armadillo cake there ever was — made by Sugar Rush Custom Cakes. Even Ouiser would approve! 

SHELBY “I would rather have thirty minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special.”
