Vera Wang Spring 2016

Howdy Lovebirds! You may have been following (or perhaps lucky enough to have attended) The New York Bridal Market which started last week. One of the vast reasons of my love for the internet is the ability to catch photos, videos and previews, specifically on Instagram , of events to which I am not yet privy too. (that’d be my optimistic side prevailing!)

Vera Wang’s designer bridal gowns are synonymous with brides around the globe, and referenced in nearly any movie, or tv show depicting a wedding. You may have also noticed that #VeraWang was trending over the weekend, and with plenty of reason! Evidently Vera Wang’s Spring 2016 collection is garnering loads of attention, and here is why.

Shocked? So was I!

Let’s Rewind for a moment

From the queen of the ‘princess’ ball gown who gave us looks such as these:

And yes… that would be Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump (respectively) adorned in Vera Wang wedding gowns on their wedding days. I almost wondered for a moment if Vera Wang’s Spring 2016 collection was staring Pnina Tornai’s signature sheer corseted gowns in the face and saying ‘Oh yeahhhhh well Take THAT’! Highly unlikely as it may be, why would Vera Wang go so far left… I asked myself this for quite some time, shock value? Sex appeal? Marketing to a new generation? Who knows. I’m simply settling on the answer ‘because she can’  and so she did!

One of the truly magnificent things about being an artist, whether a writer, a painter, or the designer of high end bridal gowns; is the ability to re-create yourself. The ability to channel your emotions and inspirations into your work and put it out there for all the world to see and share.

So This Is Love Headquarters

Kudos to Vera Wang for taking such a bold step with her Spring 2016 Collection!

I’m just left wondering what the underlay options are…….

 

Disney Wedding Gowns

Hi Lovebirds! You may have noticed by my last post that I was in dire need of a ‘time out’.

When you live in Florida there is no better way to take a time out than with a weekend trip to Disney (which is only a three hour drive)!! It was a glorious weekend and I even had the pleasure of seeing a bride being whisked away to the Disney Wedding Pavilion in the Grand Floridian; which is where we spent our stay in between visiting the Magic Kingdom.

About a week and a half prior MAC launched a limited edition Cinderella line of products; it is still beyond me how I did NOT know about this line until it sold out 24 hours later, yes, it sold out in 24 hours! Sad face…., and the new Cinderella movie premiered in the box offices over the weekend. In addition to cable running The Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty, The Princess and The Frog and the original Cinderella, all back to back, phew! That’s a lot of Disney!

With all this Disney inspiration swirling about I thought it would be fun to do a Disney Princess Wedding Gown post. I previously featured the newest edition to the Disney Princess’s on this post but thought it might be fun to revisit some more looks.

I have to be a somewhat predictable and first do a Cinderella Disney Wedding Dress Round Up! How beautiful is the Disney Wedding Gown on the far left by designer Zuhair Murad? Love it!

I love the bride who went viral with her real life adaptation of Princess Ariel on her wedding day. Oh boy if I could pull off that red hair, it’d be perfect for our future beach wedding! hehe

Nothing was more magical than the moment Princess Tiana looked down and realized she was no longer a frog and was wearing the most gorgeous Disney Wedding Gown ever. My new favorite Disney Wedding Gown for sure, sorry Cinderella!

Could you dare to live out your Disney Fairy Tale on your wedding day with a Disney Wedding Gown or other Disney touches?
