With all the new bridal designers who've hit the scene over the past year, it's hard to keep up with them all.
Abigail Betz is a South African designer who crafts opulent, ethereal, romantic wedding dresses
for her Abigail Betz Couture
bridal collection. The gowns are seriously gorgeous, but Betz takes her role in brides' weddings one step further. Starting with the custom couture dress (of course!), Betz will plan the entire wedding, from the wedding color palette to the invitations to the reception entertainment! Now if only Vera Wang
and Monique Lhuillier
would take a cue from Betz and bring their wedding planning
talents to brides here in the states!
If you love traditional bridal style, you'll adore the wedding dresses
from Victoria Nicole
. Launched in April 2010, this designer pairs classic bridal silhouettes with eye-catching couture embellishments.
And finally, if you're a preppy bride, you likely know designer Lilly Pulitzer
for her bright, colorful prints. Pulitzer's debut wedding dress collection
features these signature prints in wedding whites
and ivories, so they're perfectly appropriate for your wedding day. If you're considering a country club or golf course wedding venue, Pulitzer's bridal creations definitely fit the bill!
