Monique Lhuillier Bridal Fall 2015Fall 2015 Bridal Collection

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on October 10, 2014

The Fall 2015 Bridal collection draws inspiration from the surreal beauty and fantasy of a jewelry box. The gowns were dreamed up as if from a treasure trove of one’s keepsakes and ornate jewelry, where a perfectly poised ballerina balances en pointe pirouetting in delight.

Gowns are effortless yet dreamy, ultra-feminine yet subtly glamorous. From soft sheaths with exaggerated trains, embroidered trumpet silhouettes to grandiose embellished gowns, each piece is a cherished jewel.

Pastel shades of mint, lavender, primrose, and blush create a playful twist on tradition. Delicate tonal beading trickles off gowns, while collaged with Chantilly and re-embroidered laces, layers of sheer colored tulle prove that design details are distinctive and exquisite. The ready to wed collection takes its cue from the sweetly feminine ballerina with a two-piece crop-top, tea-length skirt and antique gold strapless mini.

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on April 22, 2014

The Jenny Packham 2015 Bridal collection is like something out of a dream. British sensation Jenny Packham was inspired by photographs of 1930’s British society photographer, Madame Yevonde, specifically the portraits of ladies dressed in classical costumes, known as ‘The Goddesses.’

The show took place in an industrial venue against a blue sky backdrop, exactly the setting this collection deserved. Jenny Packham broadened the wedding palette this season using soft tones of buttermilk, champagne, and warm blush caramel in ethereal textures and fabrics finished with exquisite beading and crystals on capes, sleeves, and necklines.

Take a stroll with Blush through our top choices from this heavenly collection.

Veils: Which is Your Style?Fashion: Wedding Veils

Posted by Rachel Romanu Posted on February 18, 2014

When choosing a veil, a bride has countless options. Veils vastly differ in style from vintage to traditional to modern—each uniquely fashionable. A bride’s veil ties everything together. Aside from historic tradition, it’s designed to compliment the wedding dress, embody the theme of the wedding and showcase the bride’s personality.

So how does one find the perfect veil? It starts with knowing your style. Take a veil tour with me and lets discover your style.

Chic Vintage Bride: Juliet Cap Veil

The Juliet Cap Veil is a style that dates back to the 1920s-1930s. It is considered chic vintage because of its flirtatious and romantic nature. Fitted to the top of the head, the Juliet Cap Veil drapes down adding fluidity to a structured headpiece.

Couture Bride: Pouf or Couture Veil

The pouf or couture veil is not for everyone. The veil is gathered at the top of the headpiece exploding out, creating a dramatic halo. This look can spice up any plain dress and incorporate a lot of the bride’s personality.

Simplistic Bride: Blusher Veil

A blusher is a short, translucent veil worn over the face. It can either stand alone or be coupled with a longer veil creating a double-tier. However it’s worn, the blusher is a simple veil that carries significant meaning—historically it has been symbolic of warding off evil spirits and resembling purity.

Vintage Bride: Birdcage Veil

Birdcage veils date back to the post-war years of the 1940s. Commonly accessorized with flower or feather pins the birdcage veil covers the eyes, extends no longer than the chin and embodies classic vintage.
