These sweet brides were presented at the Ines Di Santo New York Couture Bridal Week show for Fall 2017. The designer has a sense of humor, and taste.  Playful, whimsical faux iced desserts were perched charmingly on top of velvet headbands and the backdrop was a huge wedding cake, inspired by a French patisserie.  The gorgeous gowns were very romantic and very beautiful. The hair, by Matthew Swinney, L’Anza had soft wisps, loose buns, a French-girl look . To see the album with more inspiration, click HERE

Gorgeous glam gowns at Idan Cohen’s New York Bridal Fashion Week Show for Fall 2017 were seductive, sexy, most for confident brides. The gowns were often highly ornate, with intricate beading and embroidery, some with interesting appliqué details here and there. The natural-looking hairstyles, by Ammon Carver, L’Anza, had waved accents around the face with a few strands flowing freely at the front, hair draped gently over the ears, deconstructed in texture at the back of a low pony caught elegantly at the nape of the neck. Some wore jeweled headbands and tiaras, by Justine M. Couture.  For more amazing bridal gowns and inspiration, click HERE

Gorgeous gowns, lots of lovely lace, often highly embellished with ornate embroidery and hand-beadwork, deconstructed silhouettes, then rebuilt for a new balance, each a statement piece. These stunning gowns are for red carpets, beautiful brides, drop-dead entrances to balls and galas, by Jonahan Simkhai for his spectacular New York Fashion Week Show for Spring/Summer 2o017. The hair, by Thomas Osborn for Catwalk by TIGI was natural-looking with an element of dry roughness, a thin braid crisscrossed with white thread ending in a bead or two on one side, a long thin earring with a bead or two on the other side.

Dazzling Brides And Their Jewels, Spring – 2017

Beautiful brides, in gorgeous stunning gowns, from the Spring 2017 Naeem Kahn Couture show.   Hair, both classic and dazzling, was by Jon Reyman for Aveda. Whether a bride wears a veil, jewelry on her hair, a jeweled headpiece, or nothing on her head, the option is there more than ever today.   A chignon, knotted and looped low on the nape, is as elegant as it can get. A choker necklace is something to consider, very fashion now, large dangling earrings too.
