The gowns from Ian Stuart had two elements that I just adored. On the one hand were a few short dresses that reflect the retro-chic vibe that I’ve come to fall in love with. On the other hand were ball gown, trumpet, and A-line frocks that were full of grace, charm, and drama.

Appliqués were the name of the game at Reem Acra this season. The gowns this season were accented with white floral accents, adding a frilly touch to the overall dreamy aesthetic.

Well, off I go to participate in a dear friend’s wedding as a bridesmaid! Have a great weekend to all and don’t worry-there WILL be pictures.

In keeping with my love/fixation with retro fashion, I naturally have to feature the latest from Jenny Packham. Her 1930s/1940s glamour aesthetic is just fabulous. I mean, what’s not to love?

Earlier this week, GetMarried.Com distributed its premiere issue of their magazine. Loaded with articles, inspiration boards, and tips, I must say that they really did a fabulous job in their inaugural issue Well done!

“Drama” is definitely the word for Kenneth Pool’s newest collection. These gowns are definitely not for a shrinking violet; brides looking to make a grand entrance should look in this direction. Come on, with Austin Scarlett of Project Runway being the creative director, did you really expect anything short of spectacular?

Neither did I.

I’m caught up in the simple dreaminess of the latest from Christos. The touches of champagne and gold (along with frothy details) are enough for the fantasy, but the classic silhouettes bring the frocks right back down to reality.

It’s that time again! The bridal designers have come out to play and are sending oodles of gorgeous wedding frocks down the runway. Be sure to check back often for collection highlights by yours truly!
