Bridal Capes

That’s right. We said bridal capes. This is by far our favorite bridal fashion trend of 2018 / 2019. Just look at all the modern grace and angelic elegance! This is one must-have accessory for every bride-to-be.


Floral Embellishments

What’s spring and summer without lush gardens, whimsical bouquets, and wild blooms? Boring, that’s what. Let your wedding gown make a subtle statement with an embroidered petal or two.


Statement Veils

Long, short, ruffled, lace, embroidered or embellished, no matter the style, wedding veils are back and here to stay! Or at least we hope so. Choose a look that will not only compliment your dress, but the shape of your face, your gorgeous figure, and overall wedding design/theme.


Sassy Shoes

Because let’s be honest, your feet have to look good too! Our vote goes to a mule style shoe in any shade of blue. Perfection.


Mid-Length to Mini

We’re loving this trend for Mad Dash brides! Traditional wedding or elopement, this look is perfect for any chic bride. Not feeling shorty for your wedding day? Consider these designer gems pure style gold for your rehearsal dinner. You’re welcome.


Off – the – Shoulder

Steal the show with an unforgettable, shoulder bearing ensemble. We can guarantee no one will be able to take their eyes off you in this irresistible look. Slightly sexy but still completely classy, off-the-shoulder gowns exude romance.
