Often it’s the venue or the color palette that creates the tone for a celebration; but once in a while, the scene setter is a very special white dress. Enter, Island Bridal. Designing stunning, minimalistic gowns perfect for destination weddings, Island Bridal dresses exude an effortless elegance that makes you want to take off your shoes and dip your toes in the ocean!

The breathtaking 2014 collection was inspired by elements of the sea, and let me tell you, each gown is more amazing than the last! Crafted with light, flowy silk chiffons, silk charmuesue and luxe silk taffeta, the Island Bridal 2014 collection is utterly ethereal. Add in beautiful detailing such as bias cuts, side cutouts, embroidered lace and stunning pearls and Swarovski crystal embellishments, and, lovelies, this pretty party has me seriously swooning.
