Understated Elegance for the Timeless Bride: Fall 2013 Amsale Wedding Dress Collection

by Azure

Want to walk your white aisle in something truly timeless? If the answer is yes, then Amsale Aberra just might be the wedding dress designer for you!

Return to Romance with Vera Wang, Fall 2013

by Azure

A peaceful wave washed over me as the first Vera Wang wedding dress graced the Fall 2013 bridal catwalk in New York. I could tell, instantly, that this collection would be a far cry from Vera's past two bridal seasons. Instead of the zombie bride look of Fall 2012, Vera chose classically bridal hair and makeup styles for her models; and rather than rich reds or black + nude for her core collection colors, it was all about rich ivory and traditional wedding white for Fall '13....

I was enchanted, start to finish, at Reem Acra's Fall 2013 bridal runway show, as dress after amazing dress, topped off with an equally amazing piece of wedding head chic, floated down the catwalk.

Bridal Trends, Fall 2013 NYC

by Bride Chic

Twice a year designers show their collections amid all the fanfare of runway shows. My favorite part of all this hoop-la is giving you my interpretation of those uncovering trends. In 2013 we're seeing two diametrically opposed ideas happening in bridal wear: The return of and breaking away from tradition all at once... Returning to tradition, we're seeing the reinvention of illusion and lace necklines. Also some gowns come with sleeves a la 1940s-50s ranging from cap, 3/4-length...
