Ohhhhhh if I could collect bridal gowns just for fun these would be on my hit list. Gown shopping for “the one” can be grueling especially when there are soooooooo many gorgeous dresses to choose from like these:
The above Ines Di Santo gown caught my eye as it screamed of glamour. This sleek gown is an alternative to the poofy, heavy dresses brides have to maneuver in. I don’t see any potential problems dancing in this number. Wouldn’t it make a chic reception dress to change into? I could do without that slit under her boob, but the back of the gown definitely brings sexy back! =) What a way to show off a nice figure.
Ahh the Monique Lhuillier collections (*sigh*). Her gowns simply exude ethereal femininity in all its beauty. I’m particularly drawn to these 2 examples because of that uniquely embellished bodice. I’m loving everything with rosettes at the moment and these delicate little details play up some fanciful ornamentation creating lovely textures. And textures make for better photographs adding dimension to your gown so it doesn’t photograph flat. So when dress shopping, keep in mind details such as lace, rosettes, asymmetrical pick-ups, ruffles, and rouching. All of which will add texture and dimension to your gown.
