Whether your style is traditional, ornate, or chic and modern, we’ve got you covered with the hottest 2015 wedding cake trends from our favorite national and local Houston bakers. Trust us, that sweet tooth of yours will be satisfied.
The bling thing is so hot for 2011 weddings, if Swarovski weren’t family owned, we’d buy stock in ’em. The ubiquitous Austrian crystals and rhinestones are showing up on everything from invitations to linens to cakes (a la Susie Edwards’ dazzler on display at October’s I Do! Bridal Soiree @ ZaZa).
As for wearable sparkle, designers are doing amazing things with bling—from crystal- and rhinestone-encrusted belts and bodices to tiers of tulle sprinkled with tiny crystal beads for a dreamy, fairytale effect. But our hands-down favorite use of sparkle is on bridal footwear.
Cinderella knew the effect of a twinkling shoe. Dorothy’s helped her find her way home. Your sparkling wedding-day shoes may just create a little magic of their own. At the very least, they’ll look incredibly glamorous peeping out from beneath your bridal gown.
Cuban-born Perez draws inspiration from his grandmother, who sketched and created intricate gowns for family members for quinceañeras, weddings and other special events. Marked by a “1950s Havana” feel, and embellished with brilliant Swarovski crystals and other luxurious details, Perez’s gowns have vintage appeal, along with a good dose of va-va-voom. We even spotted one “wow” gown with a bejeweled, transparent midriff! While a see-through wedding dress might not be every girl’s cup of tea (served in Wegwood china, of course), more than a few fashionable Houston brides are sure to be enticed by Perez’s ruffled trains, sparkling bodices and lavish Latin flair.
For now, Jorge Perez de la Habana is available from Kleinfeld Manhattan…but we have no doubt these spectacular gowns will be coming to a boutique near us soon.
