2016 Gown Trend: Illusion Fabric

Illusion gowns are HUGE this year in fashion, thanks to celebs like Beyoncé, Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez who have been strutting down the red carpet. If you’re in love with low backs or daring necklines but are scared of showing too much skin, sheer fabric is the way to go. Illusion fabric allows you to be demure and sexy at the same time. Check out our favorites from the 2016 bridal runways here—and if you’re feeling this trend as much as we are, go ahead and try them on in person at local Houston bridal salons today!

South Asian Style

South Asian brides are saying goodbye to the more traditional reds, hot pinks and oranges, and are instead embracing neutral hues of ivory, champagne and gold mixed with pops of color. We are in love with the combination of a soft and bold colored bridal lehenga! Pair it with an embellished clutch and top with a traditional maang tikka to create a regal ensemble fit for a queen. Here is the hottest head-to-toe South Asian bridal style for this wedding season that we’re all obsessing over, and so will you.

Grooms’ Style Guide

A dapper gentleman is the best accessory, wouldn’t you agree? We’ve put together the essential items that every man needs to look dashing from head-to-toe. A groom should go above and beyond to look his best on the big day (he’ll be standing next to you, after all), but why stop there? This is his wedding too, and what could be better than planning the most important milestone in your relationship together? Bring him to the I Do! Soiree on Thursday, February 4 at The Corinthian for an evening of wedding planning that even he will LOVE. While you and your besties are swooning over lovely décor and gowns, tasting cakes and enjoying beauty treatments, your hubby-to-be could be hanging out in the grooms’ lounge. Sounds perfect, right? We thought so. Get your tickets NOW before they sell out! We can’t wait to see you and your boo at the I Do!
