All the hype this week about Chelsea Clinton’s wedding last weekend and her simply sophisticated and elegant wedding dress had us thinking about all the other types of dresses there are. We found some very imaginative ones!
Chelsea’s dress was a quintessential strapless Vera Wang dress. The raw-edged laser cut silk organza skirt and train was breathtakingly beautiful as she walked down the aisle hand-in-hand with her father, former President Bill Clinton. The bodice, diagonally draped silk tulle, was finished perfectly by showcasing Chelsea’s waist with a silver jeweled embroidery. Her bouquet was monochramatic ivory – a very hot Fall trend we will be discussing soon.
The next few wedding dresses will appeal to the inner princess in some of us and are absolutely gorgeous. The Disney Fairytale Wedding line is designed by Kirstie Kelly and influenced by the Disney Princesses. Each dress embodies the Disney character’s personality, but still withholds the couture design of Kirstie Kelly. Whether you want to look like Cinderella or Princess Jasmine, they have a dress for you. These dresses truly are for a bride looking for a modern day fairytale.
The next dress is made with 2,009 peacock feathers (seriously wouldn’t want a recount here!) and took eight craftsmen two months to complete. The floral bodice of this dress compliments the similarly hued peacock feathers comprising the train of the dress. This 1.5 million hand sewn dress is sure to make a bold statement, and will definitely have guests talking long after your special day.
This monarch butterfly dress is a colorful design by Seattle designer, Luly Yang. The non-traditional wedding dress includes vibrant oranges and reds with gorgeous beading topped off with delicate black feathers. (Black feathers is another style watch trend we will cover soon!) Whether you love butterflies or just love this dress, you are sure to have a very special day ‘in the clouds’ wearing this uniquely stunning gown.
Whether your style is a classic white gown or a princess style dress or a dress with lots of color, all of these wedding gowns are original, fascinating and memorable in their own way just like the gals who will wear them!
