So this week isn't necessarily a gown, but not all brides are looking for a gown. This Marchesa gown from the 2014 Spring Bridal Collection is perfect for elopements, courthouse weddings, vow renewals, or even a second time bride! The peplum lace overlay is flattering for any figure and the sleek skirt adds a level of and class. If the designer allows, this gown dyed a rich color, like gold or navy blue, could be a great Mother of the Bride dress!
Any bride looking to channel her inner Dita Von Teese, look no more. This structured Amsale Nolita gown features a corset bodice and fit and flare silhouette oozes. Paired with a deep red lip and vintage curls, any bride would be an absolute retro knock out. Amsale also designed the Greenwich gown which has the same bodice and neckline, but with a pleated tulip skirt.
Traditionally most brides decide to wear a strapless wedding gown; however, lately illusion necklines and bodices are becoming more and more popular. The cap sleeves of this Farah gown by Watters have appliqué detailing that flows throughout the bodice and then into the a-line skirt. The back, although not pictured above, features classic pearl buttons from top to waist. Styled with a low chignon, the Bride will be romantically radiant.
Exclusive to Kleinfeld Bridal, this lace Danielle Caprese ball gown is a youthful take on a traditional 'bridal' look. The natural waistline and full skirt will appease and nagging families desiring a traditional bridal gown; however the deep sweetheart neckline and modern lace pattern attribute to the youthfulness of this beautiful gown. A perfect combination of modern, classic, and unique, this Danielle Caprese ball gown is perfect for any bride and any venue.
With the past few weeks featuring white/off white gowns, this week will feature a little color! Although very subtle, the 'Sea Mist' contrast in the tulle skirt of this David Tutera for Mon Cheri gown caught our attention. The deep sweetheart neckline and illusion modesty piece is designed for more of a risque bride who is not afraid to show a little skin on her wedding day. This stunning mermaid gown also features a chapel train and is available in other colors. Although we are partial to the lace and tulle contrast, the all over ivory option may be a more traditional way to wear this otherwise modern gown. Be sure to visit the website to see the other beautiful options.
A dress that could easily be mistaken for a Ralph Lauren design, worn by elites like Ivanka Trump or Laura Bush. Accompanied by a chapel train, this Augusta Jones gown exudes regality and elegance in the most demure ways. Be sure to check out the back of this dress, as it shows a surprisingly (but appropriate) amount of skin!
Monique Lhullier’s 2015 Spring Summer Bridal Collection is flawless and this dress is one of the masterpieces. The sweetheart neckline and tulle give an ethereal and romantic feel to the dress. However, it is the baroque embroidery and modified trumpet skirt that adds the perfect enough of edge. Is it just us or would this dress be fun with a black motorcycle jacket?
The layered textured skirt of this JLM Couture Hayley Paige dress is just dramatic enough, that any sort of 'bling' on the bodice would be over the top. The accessorizing possibilities are endless due to the demure nature of the bodice. Style with a thin belt and a head piece as styled above or add drop earrings with a pulled back hairstyle! For the more adventurous bride, consider this dress an opportunity to highlight the 'something blue' with asapphire necklace.
