Is there any bride luckier than a Houston bride? We think not. The variety of venues (five-star hotels, sprawling country clubs, historic mansions, rustic ranches), the incredible floral designers, the spectacularly talented cake creators, the world-class bridal salons—hey, let’s pause on that one for a sec, shall we?

Houston brides know fashion, they know their designers, and boy do they know how to SHOP. And the world’s most revered bridal design houses have responded.

This year alone, we’ve seen Amsale, Winnie Couture, Badgley Mischka, Simone Carvalli, Paloma Blanca—the list goes on. Well, now it’s time to add another stellar designer to the list.

This weekend, Christos comes to Mia Bridal Couture for two days of glorious gowns and expert bridalwear consultation. The Christos collection, created by Cyprus-born designer Christos Yiannakou, and taken over by none other than Amsale herself upon Yiannakou’s retirement in 2005, is one of our absolute favorites. We just melt at the sight of those ethereal A-lines and princess-worthy ballgowns with their layers of fine lace and tulle, and exquisite floral details.

Christos gowns have been featured in such films as “27 Dresses” and “My Best Friend’s Girl,” and in countless magazine spreads from sea to shining sea.
