Happy 2011 everyone! I hope everyone had fun ringing in the new year.
With the new year comes a new resource for high-fashion brides. Net-A-Porter has launched a new wedding boutique that carries gowns, veils, accessories, shoes, and fashions for the bridesmaids and mother of the bride (and groom) created by top fashion houses such as Alberta Ferretti, Issa, and Valentino. Don’t let the labels intimidate you though, as all items come in a variety of styles and price points. Fabulous!

I am so happy to hear that the talented wedding gown designer Vera Wang is celebrating her 20th year anniversary. Instead of being trapped in the trends of her day (most of those 1980s gowns were absolute nightmares), Wang dared to be different by creating a modern gown of her own-and creating modern gowns for the modern bride. The world cannot thank her enough for ushering in a new era of style that continues to influence bridal fashion down to this day.

Despite our best intentions to stay on budget, some brides can’t help but make a splurge purchase for the big day. With that being said, what better way exists to spend a little extra cash than on a special pair of designer shoes? I’m already a fan of the work of esteemed designer Stuart Weitzman, but when I saw his new bridal shoe collection I nearly hit the roof. Each shoe is gorgeous in its own right, from classic pumps to daring stilettos, some sprinkled with rhinestones for extra glamour. Weitzman’s bridal collection are sure to make classic and modern brides alike fall head over heels in love.
