Katarina Bocci's Spring 2010 wedding dresses are fit for a queen. This is her very first bridal couture collection, and she definitely hit the mark! Although unique and one-of-a-kind, the wedding dresses in the photo above follow suit with the Spring 2010 trends. On the left (the La Regina), this gorgeous drop waist creation features a one-shoulder design made from oversized hand-made rosettes. The dress on the right (the Vivian) is much more simple and understated, with hints of...

The Spring 2010 wedding dress collection from Alvina Valenta is romantic, dreamy and youthful. The line incorporates many of the big trends this season- fabric floral details, full tulle skirts, and hints of alencon lace. But, that's not to say that this line is just like all the rest! The youthful and dreamy look is achieved through soft strapless curved necklines, lightly jeweled fabric florals, and scattered crystals throughout the bodices. And I love the covered buttons and...

Spring 2010 Bridal Runway: Beth Elis Wedding Dresses

by Azure

Beth Elis is another new designer who we had the pleasure of meeting during NY market. She was an absolute doll, and her wedding dress collection was to-die-for. Upon meeting her, she stated that (without wanting to sound too cliché) her collection was inspired by women. And you can tell… Take the Nigella for example- this beautiful gown was so obviously created for the bride who embraces her curves and beauty. High necklines, cap sleeves, and intricate, antique touches abound...
