Fashion Friday: 4 Reasons to Love Illusion Straps
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Bridal Fashion, Bridal Market Spring 2014

Fanciful bead work and embroidery were two major trends we spotted on the Spring 2014 runway, and we especially loved the way it showed up on sheer fabric. We’ve already covered illusion necklines,  and today we’re zeroing in on a smaller amount of fabric. Substantial illusion straps add just enough sparkle to otherwise simple gowns, and we love the way the look subtly draws attention to the bride’s face. Below follows four of our favorite varieties of the look!

no. 1 Amsale • no. 2 Christos

no. 3 Kenneth Pool • no. 4 Ines Di Santo

Trend Snippet: Tiered + Trimmed
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Bridal Fashion, Bridal Market Spring 2014

Statement skirts are one of our favorite ways to turn heads down the aisle. And while we’re all for intricate layers of ruching and tulle (see here, here, and here), there is definitely something to be said for bigger, bolder, and simpler. One of the most creative twists on the big ball gown we saw on Spring runways was the wide panel tier. Skirt layers got larger and longer, and we think the look is just perfect for the bride who wants to look a little playful on her big day. What’s your take on the style? Let us know in the comments!

no. 1 Amsale • no. 2 Alyne

no. 3 Marchesa • no. 4 Ines Di Santo

A Pastel Yacht Club Wedding by Kate Connolly Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

What do you get when you combine a pastel color palette, charming stationery, and a bunch of good friends goofing off? Something not too far from Tina and Chris’s adorable New Jersey wedding, we bet! Set on a cool October day at the Mallard Island Yacht Club, the slightly vintage, sweetly nautical vibe of their celebration immediately caught our eye. From the playful props (love that cornhole set!)  to the custom Rifle Paper Co. wedding garland, everything blends together in such a softly romantic way that we can’t help but be absolutely smitten. Special thanks to Kate Connolly for sharing these lovely images with us!

Trend Snippet: The Ball Gown is Back
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Wedding Dress, Wedding Inspiration

Sigh. There’s something just plain magical about a full, floor-length skirt, right? When it comes to looking like a princess on your wedding day, nothing sets the tone quite like a classic ball gown. Lucky for us, designers answered our fairy tale fantasies this season, sending one dreamy dress after another down the runway.

A few of our favorites:

no. 1 Amsale • no. 2 Romona Keveza • no. 3 Kenneth Pool

no. 4 Austin Scarlett • no. 5 Mark Zunino • no. 6 Maggie Sottero

See 20 beautiful ball gowns in our full slideshow…

Does anyone have big dress shopping plans this weekend?

Happy Friday!
