I am back! Yes, it’s been a little nutty the past week with my oldest daughter (4) at home and on spring break! Mothers or fathers of young children can relate with me. So, apologies for the delay.. and I just had to make time for my brides though and dish some amazing bridal fashion finally! My little escape from the park, chicken nuggets and changing diapers (I also have a 7 month old)! Phweww,,,,and a welcome break at that!
Okay, can I just say how simply awestruck I am at how gorgeous Monique Lhuillier’s Spring 2013 Bridal Collection is! !? Hello – can we just say vintage inspired ethereal madness??! Each gown feels like it stepped out of a fairy tale and is fit for a princess, but also has a slight modern interesting twist …that only Monique can do so well! A great balance of lovely “old school” feel.. intermixed with today’s fashion savvy modern bride. Need I say more?
With little details like a drop-waists, lots of sheer details, lace, embellishment and the very 2013 longer sleeves… these gowns are right on-trend for a fashionista bride wanting to go vintage without being too OTT. I have to say that Monique Lhuillier Spring 2013 Bridal Collection is so far one of my favorite collections! Just very wearable and realistic from runway to the alter..which is rare. Classy! Just love her!
See below for some of my most favorite pics from the 2013 runway show. My jaw is still dropping! Can I please get married again?? Not really of course! Maybe a vow renewel will be in our near future.. Wouldn’t that be fun?
Monique Lhuillier’s understated but luxurious bridal designs have earned her a devoted clientele since she launched her business in 1996. Her second line of eveningwear has also garnered accolades and an impressive roster of clients, including Angelina Jolie, Jessica Simpson, and Tyra Banks, but Lhuillier’s best-known celebrity commission may be the dress she designed for pop star Britney Spears for her 2004 wedding to Kevin Federline. “On special occasions women should shine from within,” Lhuillier explained to InStyle writer Hal Rubenstein about her design ethos. “Their glamour should be clean. No overaccessorizing, no overstyling. It’s always dangerous to go out there in something that is not you. People should notice your personality first, not your dress.”
Enjoy these dreamy dresses! I know I am!
