Trend Snippet: Lace Reinvented
Posted by Kate. Filed under Uncategorized

Lace made a huge comeback on the runways this season and we couldn’t be happier reveling in this classic fabric.  What we really love, though, is all of the contemporary styling and the suggestion of modern romance. Makes our hearts go pitter patter.

Fashion Friday: Five Dresses for Fall
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

It’s hard to believe, but autumn is just around the corner… I can already feel the buzz of back-to-school…the joys of late summer produce… and the richness of dahlias blooming.  While it’s not quite time to pull out the cable knits, here are five fall wedding dresses that are the epitome of elegance and beauty.  An added strap here and there… a touch of a sleeve… the luxury of fine fabric: all bridal elements that add to the exquisiteness of autumn formalwear.

no. 1 Lazaro

no. 2 Douglas Hannant

no. 3 Temperley London

no. 4 Ines Di Santo

no. 5 Alvina Valenta

That’s really just a peek though… here are thirty fabulous fall dresses that I’ve hand-picked from the 2013 collections.

Happy Weekend

Fashion Friday: Tufts of Tulle
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

One thing is for sure… there was no shy use of tulle in the Spring 2013 bridal collections.  During bridal week, I found this graceful, sheer fabric gathered, draped, layered, tiered, ruffled, and tufted in every which way!  Peek at the styles below and you’ll see what I mean.  First up- a wow tulle cape by ODLR!

Fashion Friday: Colorblocked Maids’ Dresses
Posted by Kate. Filed under Bridesmaids

The colorblocking trend has made it into the realm of bridesmaid’s dresses.  I’m definitely a fan.  With palettes moving far. away. from the the two-color scheme standard, colorblocked dresses are such a fab way to bring in distinct or analagous shades into a wedding.  Here are a few new styles by the good people at JLM.

no. 1 Noir by Lazaro

no. 2 & 3 Jim Hjelm Occasions

no. 4 Alvina Valenta

Love the colorblocking?  These fun links should fit your fancy.
