A Year in Wedding Dresses – 2014

Wedding season is wrapping up, and I am looking back at all the beautiful events I was privileged to create, all my radiant brides who shone brightly in all their finery… and I realize how very individual and unique most of the wedding gowns were that they chose for their Great Day. More individual than last year, even! For 2013, the undisputed winner was the classic A-line dress, universally flattering and always right. This year, it has to take second or even third place after other styles. Curious?

Bear with me!

The ones whose dresses came closest to the A-line style were…

Michele’s ruffled confection for her oceanside wedding:


… Laura’s sateen dress with a sweetheart neckline and ruffles:

…  and Erica’s breathtakingly beautiful creation:


Then there was Lauren’s sweetly nostalgic and demure, lacy three-quarter sleeve dress:

The “other” Laura chose exquisite ivory lace and a charming button detail:

Two of my brides went for a ball gown-inspired style – Pamela…

And finally – two more that are truly one-of-a-kind:

Vannie’s fluid draped-silk dress with crystal-encrusted cap sleeves…

vannie… and Marissa’s Grecian-column inspired, exquisitely adorned Empire dress with an oh-so-feminine bow in back:

What a show! And the common denominator? Classic white and floor-length… and other than that, totally individualistic. Anything goes!

I can’t really decide which one is my absolute favorite… you? Drop me a line!
