Good morning brides-to-be and fashion lovers! What better way to end the week than with a new Bridal Dress of the Week! Today, we are so excited to present a Ramona Keveza gown made of silk taffeta and silk crepe. The draped one-shoulder neckline gives the gown a unique look, while the fluted-shape skirt flatters the feminine body beautifully.
This week we bring you a dress from Anne Barge’s 2014 Spring collection. This season Anne was inspired by the romance of the past. The soft pastels and sense of lightness as evoked by the Impressionist painter, Claude Monet was Anne’s muse. She was particularly inspired by Monet’s vision and breath-taking interpretations of his opulent gardens at Giverny, France. Thus, the gown Acacia was designed! This strapless corset is made with beaded Chantilly lace and silk organza. The mermaid skirt is accented with gorgeous cascading ruffles.
This dress of the week is part of Sarah Jassir’s collection. The Iris is a tulle ball gown with organza ruched bodice with lace appliques. Just this past week, Sarah Jassir’s bridal salon announced its opening in New York City. This particular dress is from a collection inspired by the “creative process” itself. Congratulations Sarah Jassir and thank you for all your stunning dresses.

I just absolutely love the intricately fitted bodice on top paired with layer upon layer of tulle creating a wedding extravaganza!! This dress exudes chic sophistication and fantasy fun all in one! Absolutely LOVE! What are your thoughts?
This week’s dress of the week is by the talented Simone Carvalli. I have fallen in love with this silk taffeta gown. The Swarovski crystals and beaded embellishment encircling the neckline give it all the sparkle a bride could want. The back has buttons over the zipper closure. It is a fit and flare silhouette with draping down the skirt that creates cascading asymmetrical tiers towards a chapel length train. The dress is available in diamond white, silk white, and ivory.
Superb quality materials are the starting point for this majestic line. Fabrics to be admired, such as Geneva satin, Rome organza and Vals taffeta are combined with the most exquisite elements: natural silk bows, floral gemstone embroidery and Paris gauze frills. It is a beautiful, pale salmon strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline that has a slight drop waist and a full a-line ruffled skirt.
This week’s Dress of the Week feature goes out to someone who not only creates amazing ensembles but also showcases them with a cause. We are going to do a two week feature with designer Sarah Jassir. Danielle was very fortunate to be able to attend Jassir’s fashion show and see her Opulence Fall 2012 collection up close and personal! Our pick for this week is called: Celestial.
As the summer draws to a close, we open up our palette to suit next season’s foliage. There are the usual colors such as orange, brown and red, but the girls at CUE like to focus on colors that complement and make each event differ from the next.
For this week’s dress of the week we are shifting our focus from bride to bridesmaids. Not only are these women a great support system for brides, they also play a major role during the ceremony by simply showcasing what they are wearing and thereby serving as a significant element of the design palette. Melissa Sweet created a wonderful dress that is featured in majestic.
The plunging back with floral detail is one of the best features of this dress. Since the weather is cool and breezy during the fall, the enclosed front of the dress will keep the gals warm while at the same time maintaining some sassy style when viewed from the back. Lastly, the loose bottom will not restrict the bridesmaids when sitting or, more importantly, dancing. These girls will also be spending the whole day getting ready for the big day, so comfort is key!
What other color options would you choose when wearing this dress?
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?
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:
