Musings: Myspace Rock n Roll Bride

May 21st, 2009 – 8 Comments


We are very excited to be part of the very first online wedding planning process over at myspace. The Knot and team has selected Claire Pettibone as the feature wedding designer for Elle! Last Saturday, the myspace crew and Elle came to our salon in Beverly Hills for a fitting. It was a success and 3 gowns were chosen: 

This strapless beaded sheath with tulle bubble overlay was lovely on Elle, however, she didn’t prefer the strapless silhouette. Some bride’s are set on strapless, and love the classic elegance, but Elle felt she would be tugging and fussing with it (never pretty!). Of the 3 choices, this is the most ethereal, romantic gown, and while we have many sweet brides who fall in love with Twilight, this gown may not be “the one” for Elle. 

This natural cotton embroidered mini looked amazing on Elle! She loved the short style (even though she had never thought of it before!), and felt she could dance all night, and have a great time in this gown. It really flattered her figure and would be a perfect fit for her personality too…bubbly, fun, and a little unpredictable! 

A collective gasp was heard when Elle walked out in this stunning antique embroidered sheath. The touches of amethyst jewels on the straps (a must for Elle!), the dramatic low back with a plum and black rose, gives her just a touch of mystery and edge that so perfectly suits her rock n’ roll style! We love this gown on Elle, and she looks amazing in it! 

Now it’s up to you to decide which gown Elle should wear on that big day! Check out the latest episode and vote! Don’t forget to add us as a friend too!

Musings: Veil Recognition

May 20th, 2009 – Comment

Our friends over at D Weddings Editorial started a new bridal blog focusing on newsworthy info for the Dallas brides – Bridal Buzz and mentioned our new line of veils coming out this summer!

Thank you D Weddings for the love, we enjoy reading your magazine as much as you love our couture gowns and now our veils!

If you haven’t checked out Claire Pettibone’s new line of veils, you can visit them at our bridal page.

My favorite is Bouquet of Roses and her other various sizes in this style. I’d love to drape myself in a romantic waterfall of ivory roses and french laces!

Another happy bride swept away in our Demetra gown that was featured in the Winter 2009 issue of Inside Weddings magazine! Susan and David celebrated their day on May 24, 2008 in the home of David’s parents. A cozy yet fresh and natural color scheme that gave a beautiful accent to the bride and groom. “As you can see, the wedding was beautiful and the dress was absolutely perfect!!  I mentioned it was a little cold and we had the threat of rain all weekend, but it turned out to be a blessing. ” Susan mentioned. She and her hubby (and their two dogs, Georgia and Capone) are adorable!

Warmest Wishes and Congratulations!
