Dress of the Week: Elizabeth Fillmore

This week I picked a dress that is a little different (or as different as a wedding dress can be) and went for something more fun and contemporary. Elizabeth Fillmore designs wedding dresses to satisfy the tastes of all types of brides. She designs traditional gowns to dresses for the big day that have an edge of sexiness to them. Just ask Danielle. Elizabeth Fillmore herself was kind enough to tweak one of her very own designs for Danielle almost just six years ago for Danielle’s wedding dress!

This week’s pick is the Belle dress from the Spring 2012 collection (and Belle just happens to be my favorite Disney princess). Below you can view the Belle French embroidered lace short wedding dress with long sleeves.

I also love the fashionable veil, that adds a little excitement to the outfit without a long veil taking away from the beauty of the dress. Another way to add some style to this dress would be to wear a bold color shoe such as a fuchsia!

Dress of the Week: Marchesa

Here is another featured gown from a designer who takes it from the red carpet to your wedding aisle! Believing every bride should dress to the 9’s, Marchesa melds bridal designs with high fashion to create gorgeously distinctive dresses.

From their Spring 2011 bridal collection, here is the dress that stood out most to us:

The designers, Georgina and Keren, named this piece Collette. It is a strapless silk chiffon gown with draped cascade rose detail.

The Collette can be worn in any setting, whether in a ballroom, a garden or on the beach. Wherever you are, it’s the perfect dress.

Marchesa is based in New York and can be found in department stores such as Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman as well as in boutiques the world over!
