Dress of the Week: Talia by Sarah Jassir

In celebration of Spring finally fighting it’s way in, we bring to you a short wedding dress for your summer wedding. Talia by Sarah Jassir is the best of both worlds as it is a short dress with a train. It’s traditional meets funky. The dress is made with blush taffeta lace and sequin. Its strapless with a chiffon over skirt giving you the traditional train on an otherwise untraditional dress. This dress is available at Angelique Bridal in New York City.

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!

Feel free to browse on the website to get some fabulous ideas!



Dress of the Week: Douglas Hannant

This week our dress comes from designer Douglas Hannant. Danielle, CUE’s Founder and Creative Director, had the pleasure of seeing his 2011 designs in person at the Gabriella New York Bridal Salon (http://www.gabriellanewyork.com/). She marveled at how this designer, in particular, caters to all types of women regardless of style or size.

This week’s gorgeous dress bolsters Hannant’s commitment to creating unique yet traditional gowns. The strapless bodice, empire waist, and mermaid style train are very conventional elements. However, the addition of the beautiful blue embroidery on the bust, skirt and train makes this gown an eye-catching standout. Hannant states, “I really know my customer,”  and poignantly adds, “I didn’t have her when I started. She found me. She is exactly who I wanted her to be.” Well, who is she? “She loves fine things in every facet of her life. She loves luxury. She wants modern, fresh and new, yet it isn’t big news in the sense that she is never going to be wearing the splashiest, trendiest, most overexposed thing of the moment.” We applaud this great designer and look forward to keeping our eye on his style.
