Designer Watch | The Lakum 2016 Fall Collection

The Lakum 2016 Fall Collection has arrived and it's more fabulous than ever! These gorgeous gowns made their debut at bridal fashion week earlier this month and they exhibit stunning textures, patterns and my personal favorite - a whole lotta gold accents! Since I chose to lay low key this season, (aka play hooky from the bridal madness) I quickly realized how disappointing it was to miss out on these beautiful designs in person. You see, I'm very touchy feely when it comes to fashion, so not being able to have my way with the gowns (especially the Suzanne and Veronica) was a huge bummer! But luckily we have this amazing photo shoot to serve as eye candy to satisfy your wedding sweet tooth. 

Designer Watch | The Lakum 2016 Spring Collection

The Lakum 2016 Spring Collection has officially arrived! This past April, I visited New York City for bridal fashion week and received an exclusive invitation to privately view this latest collection and I was over the moon thrilled to take part in the unveiling. The meeting took place at the absolutely gorgeous Renaissance styled Gramercy Park Hotel, located in downtown Manhattan. I was so excited to finally meet designers and Lakum founders, Sathya and Heather!  They were both super sweet and welcomed my daughter Deanna and I with delicious treats and even a small gift of handmade ginger soap, which smelled totally amazing.

Black Wedding Dress Inspiration

It's time to ditch the traditional white, brides are now rocking a black wedding dress! Let's face it, not everyone feels comfortable wearing white (I know I didn't!) and black is just as complementary when it comes to choosing headpieces, jewelry and shoes, so why not join the dark side and be a stand out bride? Black wedding dresses are totally becoming and this styled shoot by Juicebeats Photography is amazing inspiration for any bride looking for that dramatic and sultry style to show off on her special day. Check out the versatile ways this bride incorporates black into her wedding day. I especially love the black feathers in the bouquet and stunning lace veil - truly brilliant! Enjoy!

Fall 2015 Watters Collection

Back in April, I attended bridal fashion week in New York City and got an exclusive peek at the Fall 2015 Watters collection. My daughter joined me in the adventure and before we even saw a dress, we were greeted with a dishful of delightful macarons and scrumptious popcorn. I knew immediately these wonderful people spoke my language. Snacks in hand, we viewed three stunning collections from the Watters designer dress line - Watters, Wtoo and Love Marley. All the gowns were so amazing I decide to share some of my favorite looks from the collection.

NYC Bridal Fashion Week Spring 2015 | Amazing Looks 

This April concluded another adventurous installment of bridal fashion week Spring 2015. This go around I was only able to attend one day of the many designer collection reveals and brought my lovely teenage daughter Deanna with me to join in on the fun. It was the perfect day in New York City - gorgeous weather, delicious food and of course - tons and tons of high couture fashion! I compiled my favorites in a recap post for your wedding porn pleasure. 

Designer Watch | The Lakum Dress Collection

Designer Watch Fall 2014 | For those of you who know me best, you are utterly familiar with my love (okay obsession) with crop top wedding gowns.  So naturally when I saw this gorgeous frock channeling Audrey Hepburn, I was intrigued to say the least.  This dress belongs to the high fashion inspired bridal collection from Lakum. The entire collection is truly stunning, featuring gowns that ooze with retro inspiration and sexy runway couture styles.

NYC International Bridal Week 2014 Hot Off the Runway

The biannual gathering at International Bridal Week 2014 in New York City was last week and I was lucky enough to be invited!  It was my first time attending the show and my time in NY was very limited, but I was able to discover a few fantastic and new bridal trends that you will definitely make you squeal with excitement!  Let me just tell you - the amount of bridal vendors and designers at this event was absolutely mind boggling. 

Unique Dresses

Unique dresses at weddings are growing in popularity among brides looking to incorporate their personal style on their wedding day.  Dresses with prints, bright colors, dramatically dark, and period specific have all been used as substitution for the traditional bridal white style.  If you are a bride that really wants to make a statement, use these dresses as inspiration for your unique event.  

15 Ultra Sexy Beach Wedding Dresses

Beach dresses are the perfect attire for destination weddings or any wedding where the stage is sand and background a gorgeous body of water.  At first you may feel limited to type of style dress you can pull off, being that you'd have to adapt to mother nature's elements of sand and wind, but I think you will be surprised at all the options that are really available.  Whether your beach wedding is formal or casual, we have all the inspiration you will need in finding the bridal dress of your dreams.
