Here is the first entry for my new blog feature, "Looks We Love". The idea is to show real people in complete bridal ensembles to help give you inspiration and a sense of some of the wonderful bridal looks available at September's Bride.
This gown by Casablanca features a gorgeous bodice with a beaded halter neckline and a full, gathered skirt, accented with a small, soft bow at the front waist. I am a curvy girl, and I think this gown really puts the curves in proportion, while the halter neckline brings the eye up.
For accessories, I am wearing a diminutive mother-of-pearl necklace with matching earrings by L. Stone Designs. The smaller size of the necklace and earrings keeps the accessories from competing with the heavily beaded gown and halter straps. The hair sticks are also by L. Stone Designs. Since I'm older, and already married, we thought we would show the ensemble without a veil, but every bride deserves something beautiful in her hair!
Total cost is around $1200 for this style.
September's Bride...a fresh approach to formal.
