Ethereal Wedding ~ Salua Bridal Lingerie

August 27, 2015

15_0203_saula_fw15_COM_01644a

Whenever I think about the ethereal effect of whisper weight cotton, particularly white cotton voile that drapes like a breeze around the body, Salua Lingerie surfaces in my bridal conscience. This quintessential nightwear: classic, romantic styles,  handcrafted in Colombia in the tradition of the Salua Atelier is worthy of any young bride.  Sexy, yet demure, they are perfect for any warm weather honeymoon.

Lise Charmel Bridal Does It Again

July 27, 2015

20150706_140432

I saw Lise Charmel’s current bridal collection several weeks ago in Paris. And as one would expect, it is exquisite. This acclaimed French atelier, renown for their handwork with beautiful Calais levers laces and delicate guipure, has always represented, to me, the luxury go to brand for wedding lingerie. Notice the incredibly detailed execution of the embroidery and lace.  Now they have introduced a new collection, Dressing Floral which  utilizes their expertise with guipure and applies it to a delicate tulle net that seems almost transparent on the silk fabric. The effect is a very modern tatoo impression. Just as certain brands conjure particular images (think Tiffany’s blue box or Christian Louboutin red soles) these wedding dress underpinnings are collectibles themselves. The height of luxury and intimate status, Lise Charmel delivers once again for Fall 2015 with bridal lingerie available in summer white and nude  These images tell the story.

The Mimi Holliday Bride ~ Naughty Or Nice?

July 16, 2015

blmimi

Big debate before my son’s wedding: can we wear black down the aisle. I did, by the way. Or should I say, black and grey. Years ago, I remember hearing about a black and white wedding and thinking: so gauche! (It could have been all the black and white balloons released on the dance floor). But today, I have a 180 degree point of view. This could be very sexy, very chic and very modern. It’s all in the details. When it comes to bridal lingerie, mischievous or lovely,  MimHolliday‘s  AW 2015 collection is a force to behold.

Beneath The Dress ~ Le Mystѐre Bridal Lingerie

June 29, 2015

Vera Wang & Bridal Seduction Bustier

Some years ago, at the end of June, I went on a mini-cation  to Nantucket with my oldest friend; I call her Buzz. It started a tradition we sustained for some years that excluded family and work obligations. Lucky for us that  particular week-end was blessed with perfect summer weather and we spent 3 full days bicycling around a rose laden  island to different beaches. Everywhere we rode, we came upon another wedding and of course, voyeurs that we were, we were perfectly happy to watch. Brides in wedding gowns of every type of design were everywhere.  Strapless dresses, sleeveless dresses, backless dresses, high necked dresses; the assortment was beautiful, different and part of the week-end magic. Such elegance, casual or formal, requires support. Check out these solutions from the Le Mystѐre bridal collection.

Who Is The Jane Woolrich Bride?

June 17, 2015

3878-&-3884-Anglev

Who is the Jane Woolrich bride? At first glance these exquisite lingerie pieces, all handcrafted in Jane’s atelier in the English countryside, might make you think of the traditional wedding trousseau. And, without a doubt they could easily be one of those special items packed away in a steamer trunk, about to make the honeymoon trip across the Atlantic at the turn of the century. But, look closer. In fact, they are much more. Designed with a artisans attention to detail and a great deal of whimsy, they are perfect for any bridal boudoir: exotic, playful or classic. But no matter the bride’s inclinations, they are luxurious expressions of Jane Woolrich’s elegant style. Using only the finest European fabrics and laces, they are even often worn for other occasions, including weddings. If a marriage is an investment in the future, Jane’s bridal intimates are an investment in excellence.

Bridal Shower By Betsey Johnson

June 8, 2015

421

I always thought my daughters might want to be married in a Betsey Johnson dress, obsessed as they were as teenagers with her clothes. Not sure that would be their wedding attire choice today, but I have no doubt that a bridal shower themed by Betsey would be very interesting. Imagine a pink afternoon tea party decked in flowers, balloons and any shower gift of Betsey Johnson’s Lingerie. Creative fantasy abounds. She might almost picture herself in wonderland!
