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.

Dress of the Week: Melissa Sweet

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?

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: Monique Lhuillier

Spring is in the air – and it’s one of the primary sources of inspiration for many designers when creating their new season’s line. Monique Lhuillier beautifully incorporates springtime themes in her Spring 2011 line up. This is one dress that caught our eye!

Lhuillier appropriately names this wedding dress “Precious” to perfectly complement your precious moment. Donning this dress will be the icing on the cake for your springtime wedding. This masterpiece is detailed with cascading butterflies and a draped bodice trumpet.

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.
