Cymbeline creates gorgeous wedding gowns for brides who want something that is high in fashion and high in personality.  Formed by three talented sisters in Nemours, France,  their designs are flawless and fabulous.

Priscilla of Boston Turns It Up

Priscilla of Boston Wedding Gowns and Dresses


In doing some research, I stumbled into the Priscilla of Boston experience.  I say experience, because the site is not the run-of-the-mill bridal designer site.  It is fun, interactive and reflective of the upscale brand, while introducing you to some of the new modern, sexy, yet still elegant lines.  The site seeks to make your acquaintance with everything that Priscilla of Boston can offer:  wedding gowns, dresses for your bridal party…right down to a little black dress.  Additionally, you can view previous runway shows, meet the designers as well as get info on attending some of the trunk shows and other events.

I loved that each time you click on a dress to see it in greater detail, you are surprised to see not just a picture, but a video of a model walking in the dress down the runway.  Perfect!  This helps tremendously to see how a fabric moves, interacts with a body, as well as how the lines can complement or disgrace the model.


Here are some gorgeous features from each line:

Fools Ruche In

One of the hottest trends in fashion right now is (and has been) ruching.  Ruching is the ruffle or pleat in fine fabric—once used only on collars and trimming, ruching has made impact on bodices, waists and other lines within a dress.  Ruching actually makes you look slimmer, which great within itself, but also adds unique lines to your gown’s overall design.

Pepe Botella Novias

I simply adore the gowns of Pepe Botella!  I love the lush skirts, adorned bodices and very clean lines.

The gowns are the creation of Lucía Botella, Pepe Botella’s daughter.  What I love about the Spanish designer’s gowns is that with her gowns, she makes you feel that it is perfectly fine to be adored, desired, fashionable, classic, or demure on your wedding day. She captures the many emotions that a woman would feel or want to feel on her wedding day and adds a touch of fabulous to take it to the next level.  Viewing the different lines: Mediterranean, the Love Songs Bridal Book DUE, and other Party Books, you begin to look at her gowns as works of art than “mere” unioccasion wedding gowns. 

Reva Revs Up Bridal Fashion

I am completely loving the new collection from Reva Mivasagar.  The designs are so light and soft, but  detailed enough to make impact.  His designs are described as “unique and cosmopolitan” that “symbolizes the individuality of the modern woman”.  It’s not too frilly,but can be if you need it to be.  It’s not too modern, but has feminine lines to add lush curves and touches that every woman wants to feel on her wedding day.  Feast your eyes on these gorgeous designs photographed by Mike Colon.

Monique Lhuillier: Setting the 2010 Runway on Fire

Monique Lhuillier is the bride’s best friend because she captures femininity, romance and style into all of her wedding dress designs. Looking at the designs that graced the runway for the 2010 show, it is good to see that Monique is not changing her style:



The skirt is fabulous—the soft roses and gentle “pleats”  are gorgeous and make statement without completely taking over.


Far less risky than the design above, this gown is equally beautiful.  The gentle lace, fine beading and ribboned waist are perfect for those with delicate frames.


The soft chiffon skirt of this wedding gown complements the beaded lace bodice of this gown beautifully.


The dual skirt of the wedding dress gives it modern impact—and I love the intricacies of the lace top.
