Tall Cakes Fit for Spring

Indulge in viewing these towering confections fit for a spring wedding. Height, even if only an illusion (with, say, stuffed florals between tiers), is the name of the game more than ever. We love the idea of building up instead of out. Do you suppose taller is better? We do. Enjoy! Credits: 1 Corina V.

Runway Show: Kenneth Pool Spring 2015 Collection

As noted in our last post, in 2013 we attended both semi-annual bridal fashion weeks in New York City. This time around, however, we took a pass — but admired from afar. We shared photos from Ines Di Santo’s Spring/Summer 2015 Collection, and this time we again consulted The Knot, with photos by Kurt Wilberding, to share with you the Kenneth Pool Spring 2015 Collection. Head designer Amsale Aberra’s streamlined 10-piece collection is one of great illusions, with each gown presenting an alluring front with a surprise in the back. WWD said of the collection: “Aberra targeted the sexy bride… The silhouettes were seductive, many in mermaid shapes and with daring low backs.” Described The Knot: “Stepping away from the bold, dramatic aesthetic of previous seasons, instead balancing form-fitting shapes and daring low backs with romantic touches.” We’ve also squeezed in a few Instagram-captured runway images; credits are below each […]

Runway Show: Ines Di Santo Spring 2015 Collection

Last year we had the luxury of attending both semi-annual bridal market, or bridal fashion week, events. This market, however, we took a pass — but that doesn’t mean we didn’t admire the couture from afar. Ines Di Santo’s Spring/Summer 2015 Collection holds an array of silhouettes, fresh florals and shimmering delights. Described The Knot: “Lush gardens and the fields of the Provencal and English countrysides were the inspiration … Di Santo adds a glamorous, flirtatious touch with Ostrich feathers and shimmering opalescent paillettes, with crystal encrusted tulle and pearls adding luxurious texture.” Too, luxuriate in the extravagant floral headpieces as donned by the models. ***The debut of this collection on the runway comes just in time for this weekend’s Ines Di Santo and Maria Elena Headpieces Trunk Show at Lovella Bridal; click the link for more info! Below, enjoy the world renowned designer’s latest offerings as plucked from The […]

Beauty: Nail Inspiration for The Summer Bride

The internet is brimming with bridal inspiration, and any bride who has not hit up the web for ideas is missing out. One major thing we’ve noticed is how creative brides are getting with their nails, piling on glitter, strips and embellishments. It’s all in the details, and your nail polish is another extension of your bridal look. So as not to compete with your jewelry, we recommend keeping your nail polish and extras fairly low-key. Below are some perfect options for the bride-to-be, with a few punches of color thrown in for the bride who loves to stand out. There’s sparkle and shine, texture and color. And if you see anything you love, please Pin It!     Photo Sources: 1 Via *** 2 Cupcakes and Cashmere 3 Via *** 4 Via *** 5 Via *** 6 Via ***. 7 Via *** 8 Via *** 9 Via *** 10 […]
