Jessica Simpson reportedly plans to wed former NFL player Eric Johnson before baby number two arrives, according to Huffington Post Weddings.

“Jessica isn’t concerned about her baby bump showing in the wedding pictures and feels she has put off her nuptials for far too long,” a source told Radar Online. “Date-wise, she is thinking before next summer, possibly February or March.”

Here’s what we know: Simpson wore a strapless, lace Vera Wang gown for her first marriage to Nick Lachey in 2002. Now that she’ll be dressing for two, maybe she’ll wear a strapless, mermaid gown with floral embellishments similar to what Bethenny Frankel, who was seven-months-pregnant at the time, wore to her wedding. Or maybe she’ll choose lace again and be modest as she walks down the aisle in a capped sleeved, tulle gown.

 

The Sexiest of Silhouettes

Don’t be afraid to show off your curves girls! A mermaid silhouette will hug you in all the right places, and if you don’t have curves they’ll create them for you. We know what you’re thinking: Is a mermaid gown limited to a black-tie wedding? Not at all!

Lace, satin and tulle are a few of the fabrics you can choose from. And don’t forget the embellishments! Beading, crystals, florals — designers have added accents of all sorts to draw the eye of your groom to your best assets.

Here are three variations on the mermaid silhouette:

Evening and black-tie affairs will work well for a gown with shine and shimmer, like this show stopper from Kenneth Pool. The satin draped gown has jewel-encrusted straps and an asymmetrical slit in the skirt revealing a pouf of tulle exploding from beneath.

For a daytime or less formal event slip into a dress that looks and feels lighter like this one from Legends by Romona Keveza. The slip-like lace gown has an off-the-shoulder capped sleeve and beaded “belt” at the waist. (Click here to find out where to find the season’s best bridal belts!)

Vera Wang’s lace mermaid gown features bias organza and lace flange details accented by crystal and pearl embroidery at the hip.

Five Fabulous Looks from Kenneth Pool

Posted by Bridal Market on Oct 17, 2011

Known for opulent gowns, the Spring 2012 Kenneth Pool collection featured small dramatic touches that make a huge statement. Jeweled encrusted bodices, tulle skirts that sparkle and belts with bling were some of the details on the runway. Here are a few that we think you’ll want to try:

Belts with Bling: Some dresses don’t need a lot to make a statement. This sleek satin V-neck trumpet gown is embellished with a crystal belt that wraps around the back, just below a low V-back.

Pleated Tulle:Brides working out for their big day can show off their fit figure in a figure-flattering gown like this pleated tulle, dropped waist one with jeweled embelishments under the empire waist.

Feathers: Adding an element of texture to this tulle skirt are wisps of white feathers. A nice contrast to the tulle, rouched bodice.

Textured Skirt: Another trend we’ve seen on a number of runways is the textured skirt, created with floral detailing. These “flowers” are made from pieces of organza appliqued and embellished with a small crystal.

Starbursts: Looking for a little sparkle? This delicate tulle ball gown sparkles with small crystal embellishments that create a starburst pattern.

Bridal Market Recap: Kenneth Pool

Posted by Jeffra on Apr 14, 2011

Brides looking for a touch of glamour on their wedding day must make an appointment at a Kenneth Pool trunk show.  The Spring 2012 collection is a mixture of dramatic silhouettes and necklines accented with metallic beading.

While some designers can go over board with beading, Amsale Abrerra does not.  Her careful placement of adornments add just the right amount of bling to the classic white (or ivory) wedding gown.

Here are my five favorite dresses from the collection:

1 – Tiered skirts have been popular for the last few seasons but the delicate silver embroidery and beading on the bodice and at the hem of each tier add a hint of glamour to the “Zuzanna” tulle ball gown.
