DTR Bridal Edition

From the Runway to the Wedding

As the long-anticipated wedding season of summer has come and gone, New York City kept the wedding vibe alive as it welcomed Bridal Week. Whether married, a bride-to-be or bachelorette, the jaw dropping bridal collections showcased were sure to leave every woman in New York dreaming of wedding white! Check out a few of my favorite looks from the collections I previewed…

Pnina Tornai

Pnina Tornai Bridal Pnina Tornai’s gowns are always beautiful in design, but her spring 2014 collection was absolutely breathtaking. While the collection had an overall vintage feel, every Pnina gown was intricately detailed with lace and crystal for a unique, modern look within the collection. Although the embellishments were enough to have anyone in awe, my favorite trend among Pnina’s gowns was the back adornments. I absolutely love styles that flaunt an open back— I think this is the sexiest part of a woman’s body— but to see this cut on a wedding gown was stunning, and truly part of what makes a Pnina gown highly sought after among brides. That being said, Pnina Tornai is by far my favorite collection for brides this upcoming season.

Vera Wang

Vera Wang Bridal
While Vera Wang is highly desirable for wedding day wear, but Vera Wang’s Pink collection was shockingly a miss on my bridal style guide! Each gown in this collection is overwhelmed with tulle, which seems to take away from the beauty of the bride as a heavy focus is placed on the bottom half of the gown. Drawing even more attention away from the bride are the pink hues of each dress in this collection. Together, both components of dress style and color make for an overall youthful look, which is something no bride should strive for on her wedding day. Although I am typically a fan of brides in Vera Wang, I cannot say I recommend the pink collection to any brides-to-be!
