Lots of you got all swoony about our recent Buzz item on peep-toe bridal pumps. So get the smelling salts ready, gals. We had so many peep-toe picks for 2012 brides, we couldn’t fit them all into one lil’ ol’ Buzz bit. Here are a few more of our absolute favorites, including Kate Spade’s delicious Clarice, Badgley Mischka’s bling-o-rific gold Humbie II’s, and Jimmy Choo’s peep-toe entry—the sumptuous Faith, with a name just destined for wedding wear, and an elegant silhouette that combines black and lace (two of the season’s hottest styles) to alluring effect. Picture these paired with a black ribbon belt. Stunning, right?
Casting call! Houston brides, is your mom or your fiancé’s mom searching for her perfect wedding outfit? Might she appreciate the advice of a MOB/MOG fashion specialist? Think she’d like to share her experience on camera for a TV audience?
Toronto-based RTR Media Inc. and L.A.-based Citizen Skull Productions are casting for “Mother of the Bride,” a new lifestyle TV series that follows the adventures of women who are shopping at T. Carolyn Fashions , Houston’s nationally renowned special-occasion boutique, for the perfect dress or outfit to wear on their child’s wedding day. Think “Say Yes to the Dress,” but for moms instead of brides. And in Houston instead of New York. Awesome.

We’re so excited to unveil the first of our I Do! @ InterContinental bridal runway videos, from super-talented A&A Video!

There’s nothing that gets a bride’s heart pounding like designer bridal gowns in all their sumptuous, silken, Swarovski-sparkling glory. Well, we suggest you do a little cardio prep before Sunday’s I Do! Bridal Soiree, because our 2012 bridal fashion show promises to be our most incredible runway production yet. Renowned runway producer Lenny Matuszewski promises a totally “fresh and new” look to this year’s show—our first ever in our gorgeous new digs at the InterContinental Houston Hotel (whose ballroom Matuszewski calls “one of the most glamorous rooms for a fashion show in the city”).
We know how much you love surprises—especially designer surprises—so we’ll leave the unveiling of this year’s wedding dresses ’til show day. But we will tell you that you’ll see some of the hottest emerging trends in designer bridal style, including, notes Matuszewski, “intricate ‘origami’ pleats and folds,” “fun and daring minis,” “soft, layered ruffles” and “voluminous layers upon layers of tulle, chiffon and net, that create a ‘lighter than a feather’ feeling.”
Are you feeling it? ’Cause—thump, thump, thump, thump—we sure are. See you on Sunday!
