One of my favorite things about getting married was getting to pick my wedding dress! Every bride is different and has her own style (and budget)! Just for fun, I thought I’d share some of my favorite dresses that I found while I was looking. Oh what fun!
Without a doubt, this dress (above) is among my top faves! Maybe it’s the hippy look, the sheer simplicity or the beaded cut-outs, or all the above! I’ll never forget this dress by British designer Alice Temperley. I even had my own dress tailor made to follow the soft, flowing skirt! Simply the best!
No wedding gown list is complete with mention of Jenny Packham. Having travelled to Toronto’s bridal gown boutique, White, just a few times to try on Ms Packham, I am a huge fan! The gown that first caught my eye from Jenny’s collection is Claire. A dress designed in memory of her friend. Coming in a close second is Eden. Do you see a trend here?
While admittedly I didn’t look at many of Claire’s gowns, Claire Pettibone has a timeless, romantic essence to her dresses that did not go unnoticed. I’m hard-pressed to pick any one Pettibone design simply because I haven’t studied them long enough. But if you like what you see so far, check her out at http://clairepettibone.com/
Without further ado, the designer I love to love… Australian fashionista Johanna Johnson! Right up my alley, Ms Johnson does bridal gowns like no other. Simple (ah, love that word when it comes to weddings) and lovely. What do you get? Simply lovely! She even inspired my jewellery choice, but I’ll save that for another day!
