…Who Help Create Such Added Beauty For Today’s Very Fabulous Brides!

Inspiration.  Ideas.  Creativity.  Every dress design starts with an idea, stemmed from inspiration.  Learn to appreciate the inspiration and art behind your gown, and you’ll love it even more!  Here are a few of my personal favorites, featured on this month, along with information on how the designers became inspired to create their lines:

Claire Pettibone

On her website, designer Claire Pettibone tells us, “When I create a dress, it’s all about the fabric and the woman.  How can I combine these elements to enhance each other?”.  She notes, “Paris in the 1920’s, Victorian laces, and the idealized icon of ‘woman’ throughout history”, as inspiration for many of her designs.

Over at the Wedded Bits Blog, designer Claire Pettibone declares, “I’m doing a rock ‘n roll bride collection this season inspired by the ultimate cool girl who married the lead singer in the band,”  – now there is one very “cool” designer!

Melissa Sweet

On the Priscilla of Boston site, designer Melissa Sweet shares with us her inspiration for this season and also wonderful tips and advice on choosing the right dress.  To watch and listen to the interview, click HERE.  Or, click HERE to learn even more about this fabulous designer!


Using a modern, soft taffeta and iridescent satin I created opulent ball gowns with luxurious trains reminiscent of 1950’s styling,” says Michael Shettel. “The mod 60’s are represented by short destination and reception dresses, while crystal beaded empire and A-Line styles reflect a 1970’s sensibility.”- Wedded Bits Blog

Badgley Mischka

The Badgley Mischka signature style is simple yet elegant and brings to mind 1940’s Hollywood glamour.”Wedded Bits Blog

Now I understand why the character Charlotte, on Sex and the City, chose to wear a Badgley Mischka gown when she married Harry…it truly fit her personality and style!  Recapture the memories of Charlotte’s happy day and fall in love with her dress all over again, by clicking HERE!

Priscilla of Boston

My vision for my Spring ’09 collection entails a harmonious balance of silhouette, fabric and embellishment with authentic beading and trims,” says designer Tracy Uomoleale.  Read an interview with this talented designer on by clicking HERE
