Dress of the Week: Enzoani “Indira”

Our featured “Dress of the Week” is the “Indira” by Enzoani.

We have been enamored of sleeves recently, and this gown caught our attention. The way “Indira”  fits, tying around the waist really flatters a woman’s beautiful curves.

We also love the sweetheart bodice complimented by the sheer lace neckline. When looking closely at the details you can see just how delicate the carefully embroidered fabric is.

We admire the long train this dress provides! There is nothing like walking down the aisle and having the drama of a beautiful long train of gorgeous fabric behind you.

The plunging back adds the right amount of sexy to a classic shape.

Reem Acra “Divine Girl”

We are proud to feature the “Divine Girl” wedding gown by Reem Acra for our “Dress of the Week.”

We are loving this strapless dress we’ve selected from Reem Acra‘s Spring 2014 collection.

I especially love how the triangular lace design reveals and defines the torso while bestowing a slimming effect at the waist. And be sure to take a close look at that lace to truly appreciate the gorgeous design chosen by Reem Acra for this dress in particular.

Also, the way the fabric overlaps as it wraps around the bust adds still another level of elegance to this gown.

This is an exceptional dress for the bride who wants to feel like a princess, yet still flaunt an edgy-meets-classy air.

“My inspiration this season was royalty of the past and present, naming each gown after a queen. In this collection, I combined soft and romantic fabrics with the dramatic detailing for which I have become known. It’s about a beautifully executed, elegant gown that evokes emotion in a bride. This is achieved in each gown and will definitely make every woman feel royal!” ~Angel Rivera, Designer

{First Blog} Dress of the Week: Pronovias

First off, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Sallie, and I am the newest member of Curtain Up Events and so thrilled to be involved with this company. Kiki and Danielle have shown me the ropes, thus leading to my first blog entry. What’s more exciting than starting with Dress of the Week? After careful consideration (and shopping around countless websites), I have decided to feature a dress from the wonderful designer Pronovias.

This week’s Dress of the Week is the Adam wedding gown in Pronovia’s 2011 Fashion Collection. 

Courtesy of Pronovias

I wanted to begin my first blog by choosing a dress that not only caught my eye, but gave you a little taste of my style. This one-shoulder, mermaid style dress is without a doubt a sexy, body hugging gown for the traditional bride who desires a modern twist. The full-length lace gives it a beautiful, conventional feel. However, the style and silhouette along with the materials that this gown is comprised of make it different from other traditional wedding gowns.

The Pronovias group dresses brides in 75 various countries. Originating in Spain, this company adds a little international flare to their designs, which make them all that much more special. In total there are 150 stores worldwide, employing over 730 people. Using thin, light and soft materials such as chiffon, pleated chiffon or morbid tulle, this collection of dresses exemplifies elegance and class all the way!

We definitely suggest that those of you who are looking for similar, fabulous designs check out the website or visit one of the many stores all around the world!

Xoxo,

Sallie
