We are seeing a huge trend in honeymoon wardrobe offerings from many different designers! Gone are the days of only having pretty lingerie and regular ole travel clothes in your suitcase. Now we have a wide variety of luxurious loungewear, poolside accessories, and beautiful garments meant to say "Let's relax as newlyweds."
FIND THESE GOWNS IN VIRGINIA/DC: BHLDN can be found in Georgetown, DC.
Beads, beads, beads, we saw a lot of sparkly little shimmers this year! From beaded straps to beaded shoes, sparkly beaded details somewhere in a bride's ensemble are definitely a must have for 2016.
From streamers to keyhole to low-cut, the backs of wedding gowns are getting just as much attention as the fronts! The simple details really do go a long way... after all, you'll have a good chunk of your wedding day photos taken as you walk down the aisle with your back to your guests and photographer... make it a statement of your personality!
FIND THESE GOWNS LOCALLY: Wonder by Jenny Packham can be found at David's Bridal in Hampton, Virginia Beach, and Richmond, Virginia.
Our creative director gal @chelsea_lavere is in NYC for New York Bridal Fashion Week with her @tidewatertulle and @aislesociety hats on, and we are kind of obsessed with these 2016 #bridesmaid dresses from @donnamorgan_nyc! Potential future stylized shoot inspiration?! 😍 // #NYBFW #TidewaterandTulleinNYC #weddingphotographer
We love that we are seeing the bridesmaid options open up to TONS of options! From cropped tops to layered textures, each bridesmaid can shine in short, long, knee-length dresses-- whatever the wedding style is. These beauties from Donna Morgan showcase a range of trends that we can look forward to in the near future.
As a Christmas #bride who desperately wanted sleeves (which were not in vogue in 2008 when I was looking), I couldn't decide which one of these romantically sleeved gowns from @moonlightbridal I loved best! I want them both! 😻 // #NYBFW #TidewaterandTulleinNYC #AisleSocietyinNYC #bridal #bridalfashionweek
Along with diversity of necklines, we saw a lot of beautiful and romantic sleeves... and we especially loved these lace and illusion beauties from Moonlight Bridal! For spring or winter, there's a little something for everyone who just wants that little bit of extra gorgeous fabric.
More and more, brides are looking for a second gown to accompany the party half of the wedding day. Who can blame them?! We could all use an extra dose of sparkles or sequins to complete one of the happiest days of anyone's life!
