I’m going to be assertive about something: this summer, no one has more (really close) friends getting married than I do. I don’t know what the hell happened that made them all decide to tie the knot the exact same year and make me go bankrupt or miss some weddings I absolutely dread missing, but it happened. So now I feel like it’s more than just a blog post when I write about bridal stuff and even though most of them already bought their dresses, they’re still %100 more into anything wedding related. Long story short, here are my favorite 50 dresses from the Bridal Spring 2017 collections, for those who are getting ready for the big day and those who just like to look at pretty white gowns.
This is the first I’m hearing of Alon Livné, but it definitely won’t be the last time you’ll be hearing about him from me. The Fall 2016 bridal collection, which was inspired by 19th century Russian ballet, is just too good to be squished into a best of post. Both sexy and graceful at the same time, Livné masterfully blended 20’s mirth and Edwardian solemnity in intricate lacework, shimmer, mesh and feathers. I honestly haven’t seen a bridal collection that is this good in a long, long time. Especially this dress. OH-MY-GOD.
Alberta Ferretti Bridal 2015 Safe space here guys, you can confess how you listened to Super Girl from Reamonn over and over again when you are upset about something. Or how speechless you were when you saw Gwyneth Paltrow in that Tom Ford white caped gown at 2012 Academy Awards no matter how mainstream it is to hate her. What these two things have in common? The supergirl feeling you get from capes will turn you into a super bride in 2015. Chiffon, lace, structured – a seperate piece or part of the dress and maybe even with a hood; baby don’t mind how they come. Bridal capes are especially perfect for fall and early spring weddings.
Continuing the endless countdown of “where the hell were these wedding dresses (especially the one above) when I was looking for one” reproval: this saturday with London based Catherine Deane and her breathaking Omelia gown. Born in Ireland, raised in South Africa and inspired by living in London and Hong Kong; you can sense the cultural diversity of the designer in her style: traditional techniques with a modernist twist, simplicity with a romantic feminine touch – a witty balance of textiles, details and even shading colors. Brides of 2015, you got this.
