For Truvelle’s 2018 season, the made-to-order bridal brand has personalized their wedding dress experience even further by bringing brides along on their creative process. With four seasons of innovative design under their belt, Gaby and her team took a step back to refine and reflect on past collections, spending a considerable amount of time with women of all sizes and style preferences to develop patterns and design cuts that brides will look and feel incredible in. The end result boasts a dreamy ensemble of delicate laces and a subtle colour palette that encourages individuality to shine. Undoubtedly Truvelle’s most feminine collection to date, the 2018 designs introduce fuller skirts, more structured bodices, and dramatic trains. At the same time, the no-fuss bridal brand maintains their rep for effortless wedding dress design with simple silhouettes that add interest and comfort in their unending attention to detail.

With such an intimate process involved in the creation of this collection, it was only fitting that the independent Vancouver brand name the new designs after the women who keep Truvelle running on a day-to-day basis, all of whom are strong, inspirational, and individuals — words that embody the Truvelle bride. Dresses like the Julie and Mary feature a nude mesh used throughout the collection for a comfortable fit with a barely there effect. Details like this will photograph perfectly next to a sunset ceremony kiss, or in front of a muted desert-toned backdrop.

Last Thursday, at at their Los Angeles flagship location, renowned couture designer, Galia Lahav unveiled their much anticipated FW ’18 Bridal Collection to industry professionals, key media, influencers and local LA tastemakers.  This season, Galia Lahav challenged themselves to imagine how a scent could take on a life of its own – from dreamy, sweet smells, to floral and herbal notes, and even more androgynous musks. Partnering a high-level of finery and craftsmanship with the sentimentality and personalization of a woman’s signature scent, GaliaLahav Couture Bridal Fall 2018 is rooted in the notion that no two women are alike, each requiring their own unique scent and style.

While previewing the collection guests enjoyed drinks from Tyku sake and Kona Deep Water, stunning and delicious light bites from IntriCakes and had the opportunity to create their own signature scent at the LATHER scent bar.

The desire to imagine the intangible of the five senses challenged Galia Lahav to delve deeper into the world of scents and perfumery, and develop a fascination with the process of selecting each bud, petal, herb and leaf to create the perfect fragrance. Envisioning the invisible leads to fantasy, and visions of a mystical night garden where rare florals bloom and the world’s finest scents come to life slowly evolved.

A bride’s desire to express her individuality in her daily life with her scent, and through fashion on her wedding day, ushered in new approaches to gossamer tulles, fine laces and intricate embroidery, woven into the interpretation of how the world of scents would come to life in the latest collection, Florence by Night.

When looking for gowns that combine the perfect amount of romance and drama, look no further than Alexandra Grecco.  We were able to see the coming collection by Alexandra Grecco at the Fall 2017 Bridal Fashion Week in New York City.  The Nomad Hotel was the perfect roof top backdrop to the stunning collection.

A fabulous combination in Make Up Pro New York and Hair by Wade Lee created the perfect beauty look for the romantic Alexandra Grecco gowns.  The stunning wavy faux bobs added a touch of the 1920s while the clean minimalistic makeup was complimented by a bold white eyeliner.  The look was perfect for the backdrop of the 1903 architecture of the Nomad Hotel.

The Sawyer Gown with its detailed embroidery, stole our hearts at the presentation.  The gown has a high low hem with a hand beaded cape back to add just the right amount of flow and drama.

Pearl poke a dots were a common and classic theme throughout many collections during Fall 2017 Bridal Fashion Week. The Quinn Jacket showcases this trend in a way that allows for transition during a wedding day simply by removing the jacket.  This jacket is definitely a fun touch that can be added to multiple styles.

The delicate hand embroidered floral applique Iris gown was by far our favorite of the entire Alexandra Grecco collection.   The delicate florals added so much romance while the plunging neckline add a bit of allure.  The movement of the gown was perfect for the bride who wants comfort and a dress perfect for dramatic photographs.
