Still loving the classic glamour that has been raging this season, I came across Veluz. Veluz Reyes’ custom designs are nothing short of glorious. The intricate details that adorn her gowns– from bodices to trains, are absolutely divine. They are a true homage to the classic, timeless, yet glamorous bride.

Fashion Monday: Viva La Glam

Just as we predicted last year, as well as with the Royal Wedding Obsession, the emergence of glamour will take the wedding industry by storm!  These dresses are gorgeous– adding  a touch of glamour with sleek lines and luxurious fabrics.

Anne Barge:

Anne Barge wedding gowns feature modern interpretations of vintage couture.  This blending of contemporary and classic styles, with the use of the finest materials and intricate beading and embroidery, creates timeless silhouettes. Anne Barge has created three distinct brands- Black Label, Couture, and La Fleur- to fit her customers’ taste, regardless of budget.

Jennifer Salzman:

Jennifer Salzman’s use of Swarovski crystals, french lace, ruffled skirts and bubbled tiers makes her collection unlike any other. Salzman’s mastery of fit and proportion make her line elegant and feminine. From dramatic tulle princess gowns to the perfect beaded mermaid dress the common thread found throughout this diverse line is the attention to proportion and texture.

Dolly Couture (love this vintage, pin up-esque glamour of these tea length wedding dresses!)

Dolly Couture’s modern twist to the vintage, tea-length style dress has become a glamorous alternative to the classic bridal gown. Modest, yet still making a statement thanks to its voluminous silhouette; the full skirt is a perfect example of how to go big without going over the top. The brand is known for putting a fresh twist to the vintage tea-length style dress. Dolly Couture is Fashionable, affordable and unforgettable.

Getting Ruffled

Ruffles are all the rage this season, and I can’t think of a better design concept to throw into your wedding.  Let’s mosey along some beautiful details, shall we?

These ruffled bridesmaids dresses and wedding gowns are perfect because they do not border on “cutesy”—they allow the allure and sophistication of being a bride shine completely through.  As you can see with the last picture, even adding a gorgeous flower to your hair accents the gown instead of detracting from it.  However, if you have a flair for the dramatic…

 

Speaking of wedding flowers with a little ruffle—this would be a perfect way to incorporate the trend if you do not want to show it in the attire of your bridal party.  Look for extremely lush flowers such as ranunculus, peonies

What about accessories and other areas of the wedding? surely there has to be room for ruffles with shoes, bridal purses and cakes!

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.
