The label is back again with gorgeous gowns named after Disney Princesses.  If you ever wanted to feel like a Disney Princess, this is the perfect opportunity. My personal favorites are the “Belle” and “Tiana” gowns.

This collection marks the designer’s 10th year in the bridal fashion. Gowns in this collection are made from rich design elements such as laser-cut embroideries, pearls decorated trim, and trains.  Each gown is named after certain locations.  I am loving The Pearl Street two piece which is a great option for the bride looking an alternative to the usual gown.

“The Newport,” weighted crepe boatneck wedding dress with corded lace bodice and hem

This collection highlights the sophisticated detailing that the label is known for when it comes to their gowns. Brides seeking this classic aesthetic will not be disappointed.

For the Galia Lahav Couture collection, Lahav along with in-house designer Sharon Sever included gowns which not only told a story but extravagant design elements. For brides looking for more budget friendly options the design team also included gowns from their lower-priced label.   I personally think this was a smart move on their part. I am especially loving the jumpsuit.

Day 5 (10/9/16)

This collection the design duo 1st bridal collection since partnering with wedding specialist Justin Alexander. There was an assortment of silhouettes from brides to choose the favorite. There is even a “Flower Bomb” gown which shares the name of the label’s widely popular fragrance.  What I found interesting is the shape of the veil.

Here is another great example of a collection that utilizes romanticism and silhouettes that accentuate the bride’s figure. I also enjoyed the choice to have updos with floral headbands.  It not gives off sophistication but doesn’t distract from the gown.

Day 6 (10/1016)

One of the main messages of this bridal collection is convenience.  Here is what the designer told WWD, “When I go to trunk shows around the country, I meet so many brides who love the idea of wearing the most extravagant, gorgeous, ceremonial gown — but then they want something else to dance in.”  What I particularly like is that they are some cocktail dress options for brides who might be looking for a shorter gown.

Now you know what you can expect to see for bridal wall come next. There were pantsuits to even more color gowns. Of course, I can’t forget all the trends in each collection.
