2012 Wedding Gown Trends

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

In an earlier post, I mentioned Bridal Fashion Week and the wedding gown trends we saw emerging on the runway.  Take a peek at my segment from earlier today on Good Day Oregon showcasing some more hot trends for 2012.  Big thanks to Anna’s Bridal Boutique for supplying all the gowns for the segment!  It may take a minute to load onto this page–if you run into any issues click here.

Kim Weisoff, the lovely host (and one of my favorite brides), was ahead of the game and wore a gorgeous chocolate brown dress for her September ceremony that hugged her curves perfectly.  She later changed into a white dress but I absolutely LOVE the uniqueness of her color choice.  Way to be on-trend Kim!  More photos from this wedding coming soon in the next issue of Oregon Bride Magazine!

“Fiesole” gown by Reverie 

Ladies–if you are on the hunt for your wedding gown make sure to head over to Anna’s Bridal Boutique this week! They have cleared their floors and re-filled them will hundreds (seriously, hundreds) of wedding dresses that have been marked down up to 60% off!

“Mila” gown by Melissa Sweet

The shop has extended their hours through Friday and the dresses are sold on a first come-first serve basis.  We’re talking DESIGNER gowns that are in tip top shape–many of which have barely been tried one from lines like Melissa Sweet, Priscilla of Boston, Reverie, Platinum Collection, Vineyard Collection, Matthew Christopher, Pronovias and more.  Many have been discontinued, but there are also several on sale that have not.

“Eze” gown by Reverie

Anna’s Bridal is trying to clear out these gowns to make room for their new lines that they just picked up–Hayley Paige, Modern Trousseau, You Collection and Alyne by Rivini.  All GORGEOUS collections.

“Fern” gown by Melissa Sweet

Definitely call ahead for an appointment (503.636.1474) and try to get in sooner rather than later–before all the dresses sell out.  Tell them Bridal Bliss sent you and the girls at Anna’s Bridal will take excellent care of you.  Happy Shopping!!

Ring Warming Ceremony

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

I am always trying to come up with unique ways to personalize wedding ceremonies for my clients.  I have talked to a few brides about a “Ring Warming Ceremony” which is where the bride and groom’s rings are passed to guests during the ceremony.  It gives each guest the opportunity to say a silent prayer or give a blessing to the couple.  It is not distracting at all but instead really makes your guests feel like a part of the big day.

I was recently on Pintrest and saw this darling photo–I just love this idea!

Unique Father/Daughter Dance Idea

Friday, November 4th, 2011

Several of my brides struggle with a song choice for their father/daughter dance.  Have you ever considered choreographing a song?  This past summer one of the sweetest dances I saw involved the bride and her dad performing a two step that they had gone to lessons for and perfected before the big day.
That being said…who says the dance has to be just one song??  Take a peek at the video below for another great idea when it comes to dancing with your dad.  One of my past brides (who I ADORE) sent this link to me!
