Bridal Fashion Week Favorites!!

So I am probably WAAAAAAAAYYYY more excited about this post than anyone else in the world because I have been waiting to share it all week and because it is all my own personal favorites. Nevertheless, I think it is fabulous. Enjoy! 


That tulle on tulle action is literally killing me. Neckline - Gorgeous. Color - Gorgeous. Material - Gorgeous. Detailing - Gorgeous. I am officially planning my vow renewal.

Can't say I would be brave enough to wear this one myself, but I am in awe of the construction elements and overall look. Nicely played Anne Bowan, nicely played.

This will be the second party dress I don for my vow renewal I am now planning. I mean seriously!? Perfection.

No one can do lace like Ines Di Santo.

We all love how the Brits wear there millinery, and apparently we love it so much we are willing to try it! Fascinators have been big, but these looks are straight from Buckingham Palace. Kate's style choices live on!

Bridal Fashion Week Trends: Gowns

So last week was Bridal Fashion Week in New York for Spring and Fall 2014 seasons and this week it  is recap week on the blog the ENTIRE week!! We will be highlighting dress trends, accessory trends, and of course sharing our favorites. Stay tuned! 

Up first we have a break down of the gown trends we spotted that are going to be big in the upcoming seasons. The designs this season seriously had me speechless so enjoy! 

Color.
Now I typically categorize myself as a traditional girl, but these gowns in hues of gold, blush, and silver are incredibly rich looking.

Vera Wang made a massive splash by showing ONLY colored dresses in varying shades of pink. And by pink and mean PINK. Not a huge fan, not gonna lie.

Gatsby.
Gatsby themed collections and touches were all over the runways last week and you won’t find me complaining! From glitzy headpieces, to feathers galore, I am head over heels for the Gatsby phenomenon. 

Johanna Johnson was the most memorable for the Gatsby aesthetic. Her luxurious, bias cut silk gowns are straight from the 1920s.

Layers.
Layers of tulle, layers of lace, layers of organza... You get the idea. This feminine and flirty trend is one we think will be huge next year. Weather messy or structured, this look can be so flattering on so many body types!

 Kenneth Pool

 Anne Barge

Jim Hjelm                                                  Della Giovanna

Illusion Neckline + Detail.
Ok this might be my favorite trend. And by might, I mean THIS IS MY FAVORITE TREND!!

Seriously I want to have another wedding. Same husband. Same people. NEW DRESS.  

These embroidered, jeweled, shimmering, and beaded illusion necklines are INSANE! From a totally mechanical standpoint, I am blown away. Do you even know how hard some of these are to make!?! My mind is blown over here. Okay, get a rag for your drool and continue…
