Spring 2014 Bridal Collections

Rumor around town is that Keira Knightley skipped the custom designed wedding dress and opted for this little number instead when she married James Righton over the weekend. We must say she looks adorable and Righton compliments her in his slim blue suit—the ultimate cool couple, sunglasses and all.

Of course after ogling over her choice we realized we had not yet talked about the Spring/Summer 2014 Bridal Collections.

Oscar de la Renta apparently has an affinity to the sweetheart neckline, but we don’t mind.This ivory crepe gown has beautiful Lyon Chantilly lace overlay and the appliqué tulle ruffle front is for the bride who wants volume without being overwhelmed by her dress.

We are loving, really, really loving this ivory silk faille trumpet dress. The lines are clean and the structured bodice lends just enough detail. Plus if you are feeling really brave you can sport this year’s color—orange—like Jesicca Alba did on the red carpet in a very similar dress from ODLR pre-fall 2013 (who are we kidding, it’s the same dress right?).

If you are looking for an enchanting European style then Jenny Packham has your perfect wedding dress.

Our jaws dropped when we saw this gorgeous Champaign off-the-shoulder gown. The subtly of the pleats and the color are just about the most romantic thing we’ve ever seen. The jeweled belt adds an antique chicness to it all.

Packham’s 20th Century inspired collection is fit for The Great Gatsby loving gal. This ‘Florence’ gown has Daisy Buchanan written all over it.

If you are a modern girl looking for a modern dress (read edgy) then Vera Wang is your bridal fairy godmother. She “wowed” the crowd with black leather gloves and black and white gowns.

There is an artsy modern feel to this ivory and nude V-neck mermaid gown. It has hand appliquéd Chantilly lace accents and guipure lace back. Perfect for a modern art gallery wedding or somewhere with a cool concrete floor.

Untraditional can be amazing… much like this ivory and black strapless gown. The silk ottoman bodice is edgy with at cutout just above the bust; Wang combines it with a more traditional hand draped silk faille skirt.
