It may be for your new spouse’s eyes only, but that doesn’t mean your bridal lingerie should be an afterthought, darlings! The perfect intimates can help with the fit of your wedding dress…not to mention adding an extra layer of romance to your wedding night. And these lingerie picks?? Our absolute favorites of the season!
Just when you thought you’d seen every type of wedding dress, designers pushed the envelope and introduced fresh styles that would make any bride swoon. Feathers, 3D floral appliques, high necklines, sheer sleeves and colors flooded the Spring 2016 bridal runways. Whether you love a figure-hugging silhouette with lace sleeves or a romantic strapless ballgown, our favorite designers have something for everyone. We did the hard work and narrowed it down to our faves. See something you like? You can try on gowns at local Houston salons here. Happy shopping, loves!
The traditional white wedding gown will always be beautiful and classic but there’s something to be said about how refreshing it is to see a colored gown coming down the runway. Designers like Zuhair Murad and Jenny Packham introduced soft hues of blush, pink and beige ombré for the Spring 2016 season…and we are obsessed. Would you say “yes” to a colored dress for your big day? If you’re up for it, try on this new fabulous trend at Houston’s top bridal salons. Better yet, you could see gowns like this from our favorite salons at the I Do! Wedding Soiree on 10/18!

You’re going to want to let your hair down for this one, honey: Brickhouse Bridal is bringing the gorgeous Claire Pettibone Romantique collection to the Houston area, with an exclusive debut trunk show next weekend! Flowing silhouettes, feminine off-the-shoulder sleeves, delicate lace and intricate back details—these are the style hallmarks of this bohemian-elegant bridal collection, designed, Pettibone says, for “the type of bride who prefers turquoise to diamonds, wildflowers to roses.”

Come, experience, see for yourself how you can personalize your ethereal and lovely, made-in-California Claire Pettibone Romantique gown with your own signature style—whether it’s a flower crown and ballet flats, or a shimmering sash and vintage pumps.

“Ahren and I met freshman year at University of Houston through mutual friends. We lost touch after I moved to Chicago and he started Optometry school. We reconnected in 2010 and I asked him out on a date and the rest was history!” Ada says. “We decided to have a traditional Catholic ceremony for Ahren’s side followed by a traditional Chinese tea ceremony for my family,” adds Ada. After both ceremonies, it was time to party! The reception started with the bridal party entering to the Houston Rockets introduction song while the guests were given surprise goodie bags with sparklers and glow sticks. After a lovely dinner, Ada and Ahren danced the night away with their nearest and dearest. “It was definitely a dream wedding!” says Ada. Congrats to the newlyweds!
