Yesterday was The Wedding Party bridal show at the Hard Rock Hotel in downtown San Diego. My favorite part about any bridal show I go to is actually watching the fashion show! Not the abundant cakes or decadent hor d’oeuvres, but just seeing the different trends, styles and details on wedding dresses of the season.
So… with no further ado I bring you a few snapshots of the dresses I saw…!
Belle. From Beauty and the Beast .. “tale as old as time” just played throughout my head as I saw this dress! Simple yet so elegant, it is a slight yellow color (like Belle’s dress) and the pick-ups and sweetheart neckline give it a little bit of its own unique flavor.
One word: Muff. Let’s just say it again: Muff. ! I love the accessory for a winter bride – it’s unique and modern, and evokes images of snuggling up with a loved one in a winter chalet with a warm cup of hot cocoa in hand. If you want to add flowers, I would suggest a handing pomander from the muff!
And moving on to spring… this is a fun, playful look. I love it for the bride that wants something different and short, but if you’re more of a traditional girl – I would recommend this for your “exit dress”! Put it on after the cake is cut and bouquet is tossed… do a few boogie movies in it as you get down on the dance floor and then run out into the night with your loved one as you head off to your honeymoon. Perfect ending, perfect dress.
Rosettes, rosettes, rosettes! I spotted floral details on more than a few dresses, so keep your eyes out for this feminine detail in dresses this year. This dress makes a statement and might not be for every girl out there, but it’s a unique pick for the right bride-to-be!
Whether the dresses inspire or seduce you… “the right dress” is so specific for each unique bride. (Coming from this wedding planner who’s shopped for her own dress and also shopped with girlfriends for theirs!). Later this week I’ll share a few tips I’ve learned along the way about choosing the right wedding dress for you
