Dra­matic ap­pliqués

Flo­rals for spring be­come ground­break­ing when they’re hand­stitched on gauzy, gar­den- like gowns, cre­at­ing a ro­man­tic mood.

Pretty pants

Who said the groom is the only one al­lowed to wear pants down the aisle? Swap the req­ui­site ball gown for a glam pantsuit in a con­tem­po­rary take on bridal dress­ing.

Shorter hems

Give your­self some ex­tra an­kle room to dance the night away by choos­ing a raised hem­line that doesn’t fall short on el­e­gance.

Vin­tage vibes

Ul­tra-fem­i­nine ruf­fles, del­i­cate lace and soft, cas­cad­ing shoul­ders of­fer brides dream­ing of the Gatsby era all the old-world so­phis­ti­ca­tion.
