I’ve been seeing hints of “Derby Day” Style in my perusings on Pinterest, and I decided I wanted to attempt a style that would be as at home in the VIP tent at the  Derby, Preakness, or Belmont, as it would at a daytime outdoor summer wedding or at a spring bridal luncheon or bridal shower.  This green and white printed dress has such preppy style and has been a look that I haven’t been able to get out of my head. For maximum spring garden style, I added a few pink coral accessories and some woven accessories that give a casual polish to the look. The only other accessory this one needs is perhaps a hat a little mint julep in a silver cup!

I hope you’ve been enjoying all the wedding dresses and peeks from the runways at bridal market. While it’s always fun to look at wedding dresses, it has felt like such a long time since I’ve done a wedding style idea; and especially a long time since I’ve created a look for a mother of the bride. This light blue dress is such a classic choice for a female guest of black tie wedding, and as a stand-out gown for the mothers of the wedding.   Light blue is such a  popular color for mother of the bride or the mother of the groom because it’s always elegant, in season, and looks good on so many. This dazzling cap sleeve dress from Adrianna Papell caught my eye as a perfect mother of the bride gown, and I’ve found a few more in this shade in the “shop the look” section below. Nearly any silver or light blue or white accessories will look beautiful against the silver beading on this gown. If you’re looking for more mother of the bride dresses, you may like the mother of the bride section of The Collection, or you may want to see these light blue dresses or shop by color in our mother of the bride shop, and you’ll also want to stay tuned through the month of May, when I’ll be highlighting many looks for mothers and grandmothers of the wedding.

Wedding Dresses by Jenny Packham for Spring 2015

Jenny Packham Wedding Dresses Spring 2015 Look 1 Jenny Packham showed her 2015 Bridal Collection at Bridal Fashion Week, and while I did not attend, I was certainly aware of the buzz about this collection. Any wedding dress collection by Jenny Packham is guaranteed to delight and amaze – and this one certainly did!  Like stars in a night sky, these gowns dazzle, and the only challenge is to be able to take the time to really gaze at the beauty in each masterpiece. Fortunately, these images of the Collection allow us to stop and see the vivid details.  The Collection was “inspired by the photographs of 1930′s British society photographer, Madame Yevonde, specifically a series of portraits of society ladies dressed in classical costumes, known as ‘The Goddesses’” Jenny Packham Runway Show in NYC L1000768 copy

Goddesses getting ready!

“Stylized images of mythological heroines – Helen of Troy, Persephone, Venus” were the inspiration for these gowns, with modern and beautiful treatments. Packham used soft fabrics and a range of delicate hues and tonal colors create a hazy, dreamy, neoclassical ambiance. In addition to Packham’s usual intricate detail and beading, the collection was also dotted with celestially-inspired capes,  tiered hemlines and exquisite veils.  So stop for a moment and gaze at these gowns, and find the one that speaks to you!

During my time at Bridal Market last week, one of the collections I had the pleasure of viewing was the Spring 2015 D.I.D.  by Watters Collection. This collection is designed with the non-traditional bride in mind, informed by influences that range from the effortless style of East Coast style sophisticates, the laid-back bohemian looks that many West Coast brides embody, and mixed the glamorous appeal of a Southern socialite. This range of inspiration results in gorgeous gowns that take the best of bridal traditions and add a renewed, modern style and fresh spirit.
