This man is a vortex of some of kind of insane creative energy. There is much to be envied about him in the bridal world. He takes risks, while still maintaining a very commercial appeal. There isn’t a single one of these dresses that is too outlandish to imagine not being worn by some real bride out there on one of my gajillion wedding blogs I follow. I love him. Look at the cube thingy on that girl’s head. I mean, really? What’s NOT to love?! Maybe it’s the architect in me, but this guy has GOT it. Whatever IT is.
Enjoy this journey of gorgeous bridal fashion and when you are done, tell me which is your favorite. I think this is one of the best collections I have EVER seen. Maybe you can help me decide because I simply do not know how to pick one.
I felt it truly best to just leave out my idiotic commentary in this post and let the gowns speak for themselves. She’s really outdone herself. So much detail, so much range of styles. Look at them again and again. You won’t regret it. My personal favorites are the first two gowns. Which are yours?
Carolina makes me swoon. For those of you who don’t know, my gown was Carolina, and I got it for $1,200. CRAZY. This woman is my inspiration. She’s a goddess.
A few of my favorites from recent bridal shows. I only picked one from each runway, with the exception to Angel Sanchez and Carolina Herrera, who will get a whole damn post. Cuz they are that good. I took all of these images from Women’s Wear Daily’s Spring 2014 archive. Leave a comment and let me know what your faves are!

Can we please discuss the absolute perfection of this custom Valentino gown Anne Hathaway wore at her wedding this past weekend? I mean, it’s a floaty, cloudy, heavenly dream.
“According to a rep for Valentino, the design team created a strapless ivory silk point d’esprit tulle dress, which includes a pink hand-painted shaded train embroidered with satin flowers. The 1920s-inspired veil consists of a lace ribbon with a large flower, adorned with small crystal beads.” – Original article found here.
And then it gets even freakin’ better. Check out the sketch from Valentino himself.
That is all.

I spotted a GORGEOUS pair of mint gowns on one of my blogs yesterday and learned that it was part of the Reem Acra Resort 2013 Collection. I knew I had to google that collection RIGHT AWAY and boy am I glad I did. There was SO much gorgeousness packed into one collection, I knew I just had to share with my readers! Let’s dive in, shall we?!
Um, hello gorgeousness. These were the gowns that caught my eye, and for good reason! The color, the sashes, the necklines, the lace, the draping…truly flawless!
Here’s some more of my favorite looks. Notice the color palette (some jewel-tones, some nude, some metallics, the details, the elegant use of sleeves, and the abundance of lace. It’s no wonder she’s an incredible bridal-wear designer as well.
This dress above is very similar to the dress Julie Bowen wore to the Golden Globes this year. Olivia Wilde has also worn this gown.
LOVE LOVE this one. Such a unique neckline!
SO so honeymoon resorty glam.
So what are your favorites of the bunch? I love the last one, the mint green ones, the pair of nude ones, and the pair of coral ones the very best, but I really love them all! Don’t forget to view the ENTIRE collection here. You won’t regret it for one second!
These are just some of my favorites from my pinterest boards. Trust me, there are many many more!
I probably don’t tell her this enough, but Whitney, I love you and I thank God for you every day of my life. All photos by Stephen DeVries Weddings.
