Wedding Dress Picks: Vera Wang

I hope that everyone had a great weekend! I spent the last couple of days looking through the blog to see what kind of a post we really needed and realized that it had been so long since I did a wedding dress feature! WAY too long, seeing that the dress is basically THE most important thing. Some would say.

So, I wanted to share my 2009 Fall/Spring picks from some of my favorite designer. Of course we have the heavy hitters like Vera and Oscar, but I wanted to bring in a few more...

Abby’s Elegant Summer Wedding In Boston

Abby and her husband are taking a well-deserved day off after a speaking engagement at Vanderbilt. Since I have carte-blanche on both the SMP Blog and the Little Black Book Blog, I'm going to go out on a limb and tell you just a bit about Abby and Tait.(Abby, if you're reading this, breathe!)

Abby and Tait both attended Vanderbilt University, he a few years ahead of her. She knew 'of' him and he of her, but they didn't really know each other personally until a few years later. They...

The White Dress By The Shore, I

The dress ... the most personal part of your wedding. So many styles. So many luscious laces and fabulous fabrics ... It's hard to know where to start. You know, the thing is, until you actually start trying on dresses, you have NO idea which silhouette, which neckline or "back-scape" ... or fabric ... will turn out to be THE ONE. That one dress that will make you feel better than you've ever felt before.

Enter Beth Chapman and her wonderful staff at...

Wedding Dresses by Saja

If you aren't already familiar with Saja...you really need to be. Saja's work is absolutely gorgeous...chic, whispy and totally elegant.

I love that first dress so much (top left). It's the perfect balance of structure and femininity...plus, it seems like it would be just as perfect for a pretty, backyard wedding as it would for a chic, modern affair.

And the best part? They are REALLY affordable. Ranging from $550...

Fall 2008 Runway Picks

Today is all about being a bride. A drop dead gorgeous bride. I wanted to let you guys know what my picks were from this past week's Fall runway shows. The gowns were, in a word, stunning. One part wispy and romantic, one part edgy and sophisticated...most of the looks were well designed and created for a bride that wants to be both beautiful and perhaps a bit sexy.

So first, I wanted to start with the super wearable pieces that I fell in love with, designed by some of the major...

Fall Fashions

Going along with our Fall color palette, I love these dresses by Monique Lhuillier and Jenny Yoo...in my opinion, two of the best designers currently out there...

The lace on the bridal gown is flirty and romantic, while the darker though still muted tones of the bridesmaids dresses, ground the palette and create a more formal look. Pair these looks with the below flowers...

Wedding Dress Trends

The Runways, 2007

Trendy. Perhaps the last word on earth you should think about when choosing your wedding dress. Well, sort of. Wedding dresses, in my opinion, should fit the following description…

Something timeless. Something flattering. Something that makes you feel jaw-droppingly beautiful.

And sometimes, that perfect dress just happens to be an “of the moment, oh-so-now” creation. So, let’s take a moment to review the season's biggest wedding dress...
