Bella's Friday Faves

WE’RE BACK WITH A NEW FAVORITE BELLA’S! INTRODUCING THE KALEA GOWN FROM THE BLUSH BY HAYLEY PAIGE COLLECTION. SHE’S THE MERMAID FRATERNAL TWIN TO HALO (ANOTHER FAVE OF OURS)!

 

 

With bold lace and an even bolder back this gown could not make a bigger statement! The combination of tulle and lace is the perfect match for the bride not looking for a whole lot of embellishments but for a gown that speaks for itself. That must be why we love this masterpiece. Occasionally we come across a bride who falls in love with a gown like this one but apart of her criteria contained BLING. We always suggest bringing the bling through a nice earring, headpiece, and veil.

 

          

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kalea can be ordered in an ivory underlay with ivory lace our gown has the nude underlay to really bring the lace out. This contrast really creates that bold effect, ivory on ivory will look slightly more traditional blending together.

 

 

 

 

 

 

HOW WE ACCESSORIZED:

 

 

We chose to bring the bling with a Marionat hair comb and a pair of our favorite Haute Bride earrings and cathedral length veil. With an intricately detailed back we chose not to take away from it with an embellished veil, the veil is simple yet so spectacular because of its length, much like the dress it makes a statement on its own.

STAY TUNED FOR MORE BELLA’S

 

Spring Forward!

As Spring starts to creep in we cannot keep our composure for the trends that will be arriving with the season! Who doesn't love the fresh, bright colors and cuts that Spring allows us to wear?

  Watercolor Wedding

Carrying through from last year, pastels are still going strong with an emphasis on dreamy watercolor prints. What an easy way to incorporate a theme! Although the Dori dress (Seen Above) isn't printed the geometric top & horsehair trim creates the same dramatic effect and gives the ability to revolve a color scheme easily around the bride.

The Neck Effect

Plunging necklines will be a hit this Spring, with warmer weather we tend to bare it all wanting to be comfortable and fitting of our environment. Designers are throwing a twist into the neckline this year by making it both high and low with contrasting fabrics. This neckline is for the edgy bride that embraces both the conservative and modern worlds trying to keep some traditional elements in her style while pushing the envelope.

Undergarments Become Garments

Forget the boudoir shots, corsets strike back in Spring giving off jaw-dropping silhouettes! Our Essense of Australia gown below is subtle yet super sexy with a corset top that plays peek-a-boo in the midsection. Like the look but want a dress with less boning? Baby doll and slip-like wedding dresses are making a wave as it heats up and have less constriction.


Make It Pop

Don't be afraid of a dress that comes to life with large appliques, its in season! Whether its through flowers, bows, or feathers designers are creating hype around the 3-D look. If you live to make a statement this is surely a trend to take advantage of. Spring 16' will be a season for the bold, risque brides looking to stand out being truly unique.

Halt Down the Aisle

Halter gowns reigned the runway for Spring and are sure to be seen down the aisle this year. If you are looking to show more of your arms off rather than the chest this is the perfect route to take. The Hayley Paige gown seen below provides a fabulous structured bodice that ties into a halter making it a perfect choice for Spring!

 

Get ready to Spring forward!

Ciao Bella's!
