The DRESS!

Now of course I’m not going to disclose THE dress that I do decide to buy…but I wanted to write a post of just the overall process of shopping & where my mind is taking me right now as far as styles….what I wind up picking may be totally different from what I have in my head…but these are the styles I’m going for nonetheless.

Being that our wedding is going to be a Winter Evening Wedding…I think this Bride deserves a little pouf & a little sparkle…not too much…but just enough to give off a little glitter when I twirl.

I’ve never really been one for big ballroom type of dresses, but for someone reason I want to feel like the princess Jeff makes me feel like on a daily basis. I want my skirt to twirl during our first dance & I want my dress to make an entrance so to speak.

I have my first dress appointment with my mom on the 21st. We plan on going to Bridal Reflections in Massapequa & a small bridal boutique in Merrick called Moonlight Couture just cause it’s on the way & I always pass it when I’m at work.

My mom told me she has envisioned me in something special & different…but what that is I don’t know. What I DO know is that because my mom has worked in the fashion & celebrity industry for the majority of her life she’s seem some pretty amazing gowns and styles. I trust her taste implicitly & wouldn’t even dream of not hearing her out as to which dress I should pick. She’s absolutely my fashion guru & why would such an important decision be any different.

When I heard the news I couldn’t be more excited. Vera Wang has designed a line for David’s Bridal! The wedding dresses by David’s Bridal are not only whimsical & elegant but extremely affordable. Who said getting a high end designer’s dress had to cost you fortunes. Her new “WHITE” line is absolutely stunning. Every bride should be able to say they wore a Vera Wang at her wedding. Dresses range from $600 – $1300.

Check out their site or visit a nearby location & view the new designs by Vera Wang at David’s Bridal.

Simply.Short.Chic

The newest trend…sassy…chic…and short! I came to love this new trend more & more as I visited one of my favorite wedding dress designers…Priscilla of Boston.

There is such attention to detail to the dresses & every year I feel like the dresses reinvent themselves providing the bride with a fresh new look & start! I just wanted to feature some of my favorite wedding dresses from the site.

So you have the dress…now what to pair it with?…Personally, stylistically I would pair it with bright & bold shoes, sends that pop to the dress.

Just a few more minor details & you are ready to walk down the isle…Another new trend is birdcage veils…I simply adore them & think they look great coupled with short wedding dresses.

So there you have it, a complete look that I would recommend for my brides…and actually myself!

Creative.Dress.Trends

I love dresses. Short ones, long ones, asymmetrical ones…love them all. 2008 Fall Wedding Dress lines are filled with creative & eye catching designs. So what are the trends…Lets take a look:

Short Dresses – I love these dresses. They totally say chic, modern, daring and youthful. These dresses would be a great style to pick for the reception. Choose something a little more classic for the ceremony, then tear up the dance floor with a flirty design.

One Shoulder Gowns – When I look at these dresses I think red-carpet! They are completely fabulous and stylish. They also have a goddess feel to them.

Colorful – These dresses are very non-traditional. A colored dress definitely says “look at me”. However, these fall 2008 style as colorful but subtle in their own way. A bold bride needs to have a bold look. I say go for it and turn some heads.
