plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

So, it happens to be a little known fact that I’m not a fan of lace on wedding gowns. Let me clarify. I’m not loving on the lace gowns (for me). One of my really good friends got married a few weeks ago, and her gown was a gorgeous, lace Justin Alexander gown. She was radiant. But, if you put that gown on me, I would not be a happy bride.

I digress.

It’s Bridal Market Week in Chicago, in case your unaware.  Some of the top designers are showing their designs for Fall 2010 and Spring 2011. And, I happen to fall in love with this beauty.

And, I happened to adore this one, too.

It may have to do with the fact that my gown is by Watters, but the silhouettes and chicness of these gowns have me swooning like crazy.

Just wait until Bridal Market Week in New York. Swooning will be way over the top.

    Okay, before I ever put a dress on, I liked the idea of the first one. Loved, in fact. But for whatever reason, lace just didn’t work once it was on. At least it didn’t work for the vision I had of my wedding!

  7. That second gown is sooooooo fun!

  8. This collection is gorgeous! Love both.

    @Kate – Your too funny. Good thing this didn’t come out a few months before the wedding. I think you’d have dress regret majorly!
