With the warm weather days of summer coming to a close (boo!), and the crisp chilled nights of fall right around the corner (yay!), brides are turning towards the bling, in order to turn up the heat on their wedding day… and I gotta admit, I love love loves it!
But I suppose I should state for the record that – in all reality – you’d be hard pressed to find a wedding dress trend that I couldn’t get behind. I mean, really? They’re wedding dresses! How can you not love them? Sometimes, I find myself just wanting to pretend to be engaged again; so, I can have an excuse to go into a store and just try on and twirl around until my heart’s content… I’d have to go by myself though – OBVI. Some guilty pleasures are simply too shameful to share with others, haha!
And yet, I digress, as my embarrassing confessions are not what this post is all about. In fact, it is about the **Bridal Bling** making its way into the forefront of fall and winter wedding fashion! From famed designers like Vera Wang, Lazaro, Reem Acra, Alvina Valenta and Monique Lhuillier the wedding world is getting its fill of gowns that are all about the dream dazzle!
It doesn’t matter if it’s sequins, rhinestones, crystals, glass beads and the like spread from head to toe or simply concentrated in one spot… fall and winter brides are guaranteed to sparkle this season, and if you don’t believe me, all you have to do is a take a gander at some of the standouts I’ve selected below and join me on the dazzle train :)
