Looking for a chic accessory that will pack a lot of punch without overwhelming your wedding-day look? Gloves can be the perfect addition you’re looking for. Designers added long opera gloves, short lace gloves and even gauntlets, fingerless gloves, to complete the look of their wedding gowns.

While gloves were once a staple in every woman’s daily wardrobe, they are now limited to cold weather and formal events, but after seeing the various pairings on the runway brides having an informal or formal, day or evening, ballroom or backyard wedding can put on a pair.

Here’s a glove-wearing tip: For the wedding ceremony, ask your seamstress to cut a slit on the ring finger of the left glove so your groom can easily place a wedding band on your finger.

Here are a few glove options from the Fall 2013 Bridal runway:

Anne Barge’s Parisian-inspired collection showcased both long and short options. On the far left is a pair of off-white short fingerless gloves, adorned with a small bow. In the center, sheer opera gloves, that go over the elbow, is the perfect complement to a tulle gown. Both gloves by Carolina Amato.

Pnina Tornai, exclusively at Kleinfeld, designed a pair of lace gauntlets embellished with silver embroidery, and if you look carefully you can see a large decorative bow at the top of each one.

The Ball Gown is Back

Posted by Bridal Market on Oct 14, 2012

After a few seasons of seeing sexy silhouettes on the runway, designers have brought back the classic ball gown. Every designer featured a number of show stoppers with a voluminous skirt made from layers of soft tulle or stiff taffeta, which gives a ball gown a classic dome-like shape. Bodices were embellished with embroidery, beading, crystals, or left unadorned with fabric draped and pleated in elegant ways. Strapless necklines took a backseat to asymmetrical and illusion necklines made from tulle or lace, capped and long sheer sleeves, revealing that Kate Middleton’s Sarah Burton wedding gown still inspires designers and brides. Above are three of our favorite ball gowns from the Spring 2013 Bridal Market runway shows:

Dennis Basso, available exclusively at Kleinfeld in New York, layered tissue cut organza to create a light as air gown perfect for any black-tie setting. Brides looking for something a little more avant garde should slip into Marchesa’s Femke design. The three-dimensional floral design is made from silk gazar petals draped into blooming flowers over a strapless ball gown. For a mix of both classic and modern Vera Wang embellished this ball gown’s bodice with ribbon embroidery and paired it with a silk organza flange skirt.

Five Fabulous Looks by Pnina Tornai

Posted by Bridal Market on Oct 18, 2011

Everyone knows the Pnina Tornai (sold exclusively at Kleinfeld Bridal) show is going to be a jaw dropper. The gowns are embellished with Swarovski crystals and pearls the size of golf balls and the word sexy barely describes thm. Here are five show stoppers from the collection:

Pearls: Tornai wrote on the run of show that this collection was inspired by pearls. This white Alencon lace halter dress features a pearl necklace that flatters both the neckline and back.

Mother of Pearl: In addition to embellishing her gowns with pearls Tornai also created this more understated look with them and designed a Mother of Pearl bolero. Paired with an ivory taffeta spaghetti strap V-neck gown with asymmetrical tiered skirt is a chic bolero made from dozens of Mother of Pearl circles.

Slinky is Also Sexy: Not all of the gowns in the 2012 collection are pouffy. There were two silk charmeuse dresses with Swarovski crystal embellishments. They both featured the embellishments under the empire waist and the one on the left also had Swarovski crystals around the neck. Both had extremely low backs, as in if they went any lower…

The Fit: I once asked a sales associate at Kleinfeld why Pnina Tornai was one of their best selling collections and she said, “It’s the fit.” The corsetry is designed so well that no matter what your figure you’ll look and feel fabulous. And as for the sheer corsets, she told me they can add a liner.

Two in One: Save your money on a second reception dress by buying this two-in-one design. This ivory pearl encrusted one-shoulder mini dress has a detachable silk taffeta skirt.
