I have talked about this before, but the Midwest has not quite grasped on to the Southern tradition of bridal portraits. Most brides just take a few solo shots on their wedding day (hey, I did). And, you can’t complain when the photog snaps a few simple shots like these.

Not all brides dream of a long white gown – a white gown for that matter. But back to the long part.
When your wedding backdrop and “feel” just don’t equal having a long wedding gown. Don’t feel like you have to have one. Short dresses are just as fun, and sometimes sexier. And, who doesn’t love a sexy bride?

If you’re looking for a way to add a touch of fun to your gown and dyed crinoline is not your thing, why not purchase a gown with fun pattern underneath?

Thanks to Dog n’ Bird for sharing this one
One of the best elements of a wedding day, other than the obvious (the happy couple) is catching a glimpse of the bride’s gown. Her gown says so much about her personality and her style. It’s no wonder more often than not, girls are staying true to their style.

Lisa‘s photos never seize to amaze me. She posted these two recently and they completely caught my eye. I swore these were for a wedding gown ad. They had to be.
But, nope. Just some gorgeous bridal shots. Can’t wait to see more from this wedding!

I woke up the other morning to quite the flurry on Twitter. Granted, this news was shared a few days ago, but news has yet to really spread like wild flower.
You see, Vera Wang has recently made a new partnership announcement. No, none of her existing gowns, or current lines are going anywhere. Vera will continue to design gorgeous, drool- (and swoon-) worthy gowns that we will continue to lust over. However, she will be teaming up with David’s Bridal and releasing a new (and affordable) line of wedding gowns.
Starting in Spring 2011, David’s Bridal will begin selling Vera Wang designs that will be sold for under $1,500. Yes, you read that correctly.
Since designs are still in the works, no sketches or pictures of the line are available. BUT, Vera recently revealed her Fall 2010 line at Bridal Fashion Week in New York not too long ago. And, no post is a true post without gorgeous photos (of gowns, in this case).

There is something so simply gorgeous about how simple and chic this bride’s dress is.

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.
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.
