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.

Cover Up With One of These Must-Have Bridal Accessories

Posted by Bridal Market on Oct 14, 2012

A bride may want to order a cover up for her wedding dress because she wants her arms covered for a religious wedding ceremony, she’s getting married in winter or a cold climate, or simply that the cover up in question is so fabulous she can’t get married without it!

Brides still shopping for their wedding-day look may find it hard to resist the jackets, boleros, shrugs and other cover ups making their way down the Spring 2013 Bridal Market runways. Styles range from fur and faux fur, in white as well as other colors, sheer jackets, “pop overs” that literally pop right over you head in lace or tulle, and organza boleros with three-dimensional detailing.

Here you can see three different cover up styles that editors saw on the runways:

Alfred Angelo designed a Venise lace jacket with white bridal buttons up the back. One can easily switch from the solemn ceremony setting to the party atmosphere of a wedding reception in a matter of seconds.

JLM Couture showed a fur bolero with crystal embellished tulle inserts, the perfect accessory for a winter wedding even if it’s not snowing outside.

Exclusive to David’s Bridal stores is this embroidered tulle pop-over with three covered buttons in the back. The metallic thread adds a bit of shimmer to a bride’s wedding-day look.

Five Fabulous Looks from Jim Hjelm

Posted by Bridal Market on Oct 23, 2011

Traditional looks with modern sensibilities is how we would describe the Spring 2012 Jim Hjelm collection. Lovely laces and exquisite beading are some of the details that really caught our eye. Here are five we loved:

Pretty in Peach: Forget pink, designer Francesca Pietra, chose peach as her non-white/ivory color of choice. This peach silk satin faced organza and ivory tulle body skimming silhouette has an embroidered elongated bodice and layered tulle skirt.

Just Because: There’s lace, there’s color, there’s a deep sweetheart neckline. Why wouldn’t you want to try on this A-line gown made from ivory Alencon lace?

The Kate Effect: This gown reminds of us of Kate Middleton’s wedding gown because of the V-neck lace bodice and sleeves, but the skirt and back are less formal than the Duchess’ McQueen dress. The lace on this A-line gown is over a champagne charmeuse and the back is open.

A Re-Wearable Bridesmaid Dress: We think we found one! It’s very hard to convince a bridesmaid that she will wear the dress again, but even the bride will want to borrow this one. This sexy bridesmaid dress is made from a shimmer luminescent chiffon and features a one-shoulder neckline adorned with crystal appliques at the shoulder.

Reception Dress: Choose a reception dress that doesn’t look anything like you’re wedding gown and is a true party dress. This ivory pearl and crystal cocktail-length dress is encrusted with beads from the neckline to the hem.

Five Fabulous Looks from Winnie Couture

Posted by Bridal Market on Oct 23, 2011

Elegant and chic are the words we would use to describe the Spring 2012 Winnie Couture collection. The A-line, trumpet and ball gown silhouettes were made from laces, tulle and satin and embellished with beading and embroidery. Here are five looks we think you’ll love too:

Classic lace: This fit-to-flare gown in lace has a sweetheart neckline and a crystal band at the waist.

Ball Gown: Brides looking for a classic formal ball gown should try on this duchess satin sweetheart strapless gown. The bodice is ruched and at the dropped waist is a crystal adornment. You can see the detail better in the photo on the left.

Beautiful Embroidery: The sweetheart neckline on this strapless fit-to-flare gown is embroidered with silver thread in an intricate pattern that follows around the back.

Draping and Embroidery: We just love draped tulle and this gown is on our top five list not just because of the draping but also because of the beautiful silver embroidery on the waist and bodice. It’s quite regal.

Tulle Flowers: By now you’re very familiar with the 3-D flower trend this season — we’ll do a story on it next week –but these three dimensional blooms aren’t as pronounced as some of the others we’ve seen. Swirls of tulle with crystal centers create these roses.

Five Fabulous Looks from Hayley Paige

Posted by Bridal Market on Oct 22, 2011

From the designer of Blush, Hayley Paige is a new collection from JLM Couture. The line had similar sensibilities to Blush in that the collection was light and airy with a youthful feel. Here are five looks we loved from the debut collection:

Cut-out Backs: Back detailing was important to every designer this season and cut-outs was one technique we saw a lot of. These two gowns both feature a cut-out back, of which one is in the shape of a heart. Remember, we said youthful.

Trimmed Hems: While many skirts were edged in a thick horsehair, this ball gown featured a petite band trim. Definitely more light and feminine.

Criss-Cross Straps: We loved these metallic criss-cross straps that crossed in both the front and then again in the back.

Swiss Dot: A young and fun fabric, Swiss dot gives off a without a care in the world type of feeling. This sweetheart strapless fit-to-flare gown has ruched detailing, a lace-up corset and flower detail above the waist.

Easy Breezy: We think this is the perfect dress for a tropical destination wedding. The lace gown is veiled in silk Georgette with a loosely draped overlay and accented with flowers on the bodice.
