Designer Spotlight: Stella de Libero

While doing some research for an upcoming blog I came across a line of haute couture wedding dresses by Japanese designer, Stella de Libero.  Now, this collection is not for the traditional or timid bride but if the vision you have in mind for your wedding dress includes dramatic flair, then you are going to LOVE the following photo montage.  Envision western charm meets renaissance romanticism meets overstated layers of soft romantic folds enhanced with generous applications of ruffles, flowers, beads, pleats, and dramatic color.   Gorgeous! And I don’t know if I love the collection of white dresses or color infused dresses more but while I figure it out, enjoy the gallery of beautiful gowns below!

Sarah Seven’s Spring 2011 Bridal Collection

Romantic. Simple. Feminine.  Those are the three words I would choose to describe the Spring 2011 Line of wedding dresses from Portland, Oregon designer, Sarah Seven.  Her website describes her bridal collection as “a rare glimpse into the perfected and intricate arrangement of blossoming ruffles, delicate fabrics, and flowing layers” – the perfect dress for any bride looking to capture raw romance on her wedding day.  Each dress is made to order and is oh so affordable, with the most expensive breaking the bank at $3200.  But don’t take my word for it…see for yourself…
