Wedding Wednesdays ~ Spring 2014 ~ Couture Bridal from Designer Romona Keveza!

This New York based designer has delivered a spectacular show exuding femininity and celebrating women’s beauty and style throughout the eras.

A variety of dresses ranging from the whimsically magical gowns to the high end fashion statement pieces; she turns fantasy into a reality!

Taking inspiration from the last century Romona Keveza takes us on a journey through time presenting signature pieces resonant of various decades. Here are a few of our favourites.

 

Her opening piece was a blush silk organza ball gown inspired by Princess Alice who she said “bucked the trend” of wearing a traditional white gown. Will you stray from the expected white dress?

 

This gorgeous dress has intricate beading details reflective of the Old Hollywood glamour.  From front to back your eyes are drawn into the sweet heart line and mermaid cut to the buttoning from the mid back to below the buttocks.  Hugging the figure in all the right places with an aura of sexiness and elegance, this dress definitely gets the thumbs up from us!

Moving onto the rocking 1950’s this gown below is simply pretty and girly. This strapless classic flaring out from the waist is fun and flirty!  Here Keveza has played with textures opting for a bobbly material for the dress combined with a solid belt accented with a bow to break it up and it does so perfectly!

 

Her collection has an array of styles to suit all brides, with a range of silhouettes, neck, and waist lines. She was also bold with her choices of materials from taffeta, silk to tulle.

Something for everyone really!

  

Keveza’s finale piece was something she described as “haute couture,” 100% handmade. For this dress she used fabrications never used before in bridal gowns creating this amazing gold and silver sparkly delight. However, instead of being overstated and blingy, it somehow radiates a dreamy, nude and natural look. 

 

For more of her designs, you can check out her Legends bridal collection, which is absolutely gorgeous and definitely worth a look. Here she combines two of our favourite things; both vintage inspiration and lace, creating a plethora of wedding gowns that will make any bride feel like a princess on her big day!

~Tip Tuesday~ Work with what you got!

Kitchener Wedding Planner PlanningThere are millions and millions of wedding dresses to choose from out there and no doubt it can be one of the most overwhelming decisions of wedding planning for brides. So many things to consider!!! Silhouette, neckline, fabric, colour and detail.

Start simple and research what style you like and what suits YOU best, For example, princess style gowns flatter almost everyone, but mermaid cuts works best with taller brides.

Don’t feel like you need to spend thousands of dollars on a top designer dress....especially since you will only be wearing it for one day. A great option is to buy used and you can have it tailored to fit perfectly without having anyone know!

Be non-traditional.  

Don’t feel as if you have to go with what has been done; wear what YOU want and what YOU like. If you feel white is not the colour for you, go for a shaded dress.  If you are not liking the length... gof for a shorter dress.

Keep in mind, this is YOUR day YOU pave the way!

A good rule to remember....  in ten years looking back on your wedding photos, will your dress look dated ? (remember the neon dresses from the eighties!)

 

Some "Shopping for the Dress" Pointers..... 

Kitchener Wedding Planner PlanningBook an appointment- Most bridal shops need to know in advance so they can pair you with a Bridal consultant.

 

 

Kitchener Wedding Planner PlanningHave an idea in your head what you are looking for, but be open to options.  Veil, no veil, lace, beading, elegant or bold???? What you come in the salon with may not be what you leave with! 

 

 

Kitchener Wedding Planner PlanningStick to your budget.  You don't want to to be disappointed in the end when you have fallen in love with a dress that is going to break the bank!

 

 

We hope you are able to enjoy the Wedding Dress shopping experience.... the thing to remember... don't let it overwhelm you!  Enjoy the moment and you will find the perfect dress for you!

Happy Shopping ladies!!!!!

Wedding Gown Trends

Gowns with high, elegant necklines appeared in many of the 2013 bridal collections.  Now this is a trend that we just love!  Classic.  Elegant.  Romantic. Some of the designs are a little reminiscent of Jackie O don't you think?    A welcome alternative to the strapless gown, high necklines still keep the romantic, feminine and modern feel that brides are looking for.  Here are just a few that inspired us and would love to share!  Let us know what you think!

Our favourite of the day..... seriously gorgeous.
