Wedding Dresses

This past year, I was blessed to witness the wedding of my only female sibling. She is the youngest of six children, me being the first. So, it was just fitting for me to be there to see her get married. Yes, Virginia, my mom and I considered making mine, too. Then we counted the cost and I also found a J.C. Penney dress for under $100. We opted for the $100 dress and Mom made the bridesmaids’ dresses instead. The Yoruba segment of the engagement features a Gold, Orange or Red Theme. The outfit for both the groom and the bride, though not exactly gold, had some elements of gold in the threading. If you like a simple gown, not too heavy on the embellishment, the dress itself is right up your alley. Designed by Swedish designer (and past Victoria favorite) Par Engsheden, it’s made of cream duchess silk satin.

A nearly 5 meter (16 foot) detachable train extends from the waist, and includes a small amount of embellished detail around its edge.

On the edge of a pool designed by Oscar Niemeyer by the crystalline blue water, beneath the scorching sun is the extraordinary presence of Gisele Bündchen. Stretched out, sensual, her eyes hidden away beneath tinted glasses, her head in the stars, wearing an evening dress in the middle of the day, the Brazilian siren on the cover of this issue isn’t afraid of anything to bask in all that summer has to offer,” writes Emmanuelle Alt, editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris in her June/July 2017 editorial.

It always helps to ask a designer to help you accentuate the good and take away the bad. They know what to do and will help create your dress to suit you and your style. Crop tops or two-piece ensembles continue to be popular and add a modern aesthetic to your wedding. Lastly, a major trend that’s showing no signs of slowing down is the 1930s-inspired wedding dress. This elegant style features a sheath skirt, draped details, delicate embellished sleeves, and plenty of sparkle. I have arranged these websites in order by how user friendly they are, however, I will also note the other features of the websites that can sometimes make up for a bad web design.
