Dress of the Week: Justin Alexander

This is another great dress to add to our weekly Dress of the Week collection. It was designed by Justin Alexander. He takes a traditional wedding dress and transforms it into something simple yet fun and flirty just by cutting the skirt a couple of inches.

This 1950’s style tea length gown has a gorgeous Sabrina neckline. It’s embroidered, satin, cut-out lace is accented with a cummerbund Silk Dupion band adorned with a crystal brooch adorned bow at the natural waist. This gown also has a keyhole back fastened with covered buttons.

Justin Alexander’s creation is something right out of a  fairy tale. What was your favorite dress growing up?


Dress of the Week: Tara Keely

This week we are featuring a dress that caught our eye created by Lazaro Perez in his Tara Keely collection.

One of the biggest reasons why this dress caught our attention was due to the big bow belt that sits at the waist. It comes in various colors including black, white and ivory, which can tie in perfectly with your bridal party if you choose a specific color scheme for your wedding. Lazaro perfectly matched the playful bow on a strapless sweetheart dress made of silk organza and tulle.

This dress can work in any setting, whether your event is in a garden or a ballroom. What other dresses from Lazaro’s collection catch your eye?


Dress of the Week: Anne Barge

After all the excitement of the Royal Wedding and finally seeing Kate Middleton’s choice for her wedding dress, the girls at CUE thought this week’s Dress of the Week should be dedicated to a gown featuring lace – and who can do it better than Anne Barge?

This dress is covered with Alençon lace with fine details around its sweetheart neckline making this little number all the more elegant. The ribbon detail, sitting perfectly on the waist, ties back forming a bow that cascades down the back of the dress. Barge finishes off by fashioning the lower half as an asymmetrical layered tulle skirt with horsehair trim.

What is your take on a lace wedding dress?


Dress of the Week: Oscar de la Renta

When a planning a wedding, one of the most personal & exciting elements a bride considers is her dress. The CUE girls are here to help with some dresses we love to offer you some inspiration!

This is our pick for Dress of the Week.

This dress was designed by Oscar de la Renta himself. From his Spring 2011 collection, this beauty is a one-of-a-kind stunner wrapped in a sheath of lace that radiates elegance and grace. A unique detail that caught our attention is the train. For years now trains have been left entirely to personal preference and are not at all de rigeur. For those of you who are on the fence, Oscar de la Renta cleverly modernizes the train by adding a pop of color, fashioning it from a contrasting material and “attaching” it as a bow to the back of the dress.
