I don’t know about you but it seems that our 2018 is full of weddings, including ours! I feel like after the engagement butterflies wear off it’s straight to business. I never knew how much time would have to go into planning this event. It’s like a full-time job! Everything has been going pretty smoothly (so far) and I (obviously) already have my dress.
Picking out your dress is really just as magical as you would imagine it to be and it’s so true that when you know, you know. The craziest part is that you think you know what you want before you try them on, and you end up going with something TOTALLY different than what you expected. But, once you step in front of the mirror in your dress and you just know, it’s truly a special moment. So cliché, I know. Since this is the year to be wed, I thought I would break down a few of my favorite bridal brands to help future brides.
GALA by Galia Lahav
There is a huge trend running with top designers who specialize in haute couture collaborating with ready-to-wear brands in the bridal world. More designers are putting out collections that stay true to their lines but have a lighter twist in both the material and the price. GALA by Galia Lahav is one of these collaborations. They gathered their inspiration from the most romantic cities in the world. Unique lace, classic silhouettes, and statement sparkles flood this modern, sexy line. There’s no doubt necks will break when you walk down the aisle.
If you follow reality television or spend most of your day on Instagram, then I’m sure you’ve heard or seen the designer Miss Hayley Paige. Talk about princess vibes. Full of tulle, embellishment, and sparkles, she has designs to appeal to all kinds of brides from classic to modern, but one thing stays true and that is that you will feel like a true princess when you put one on.
Berta and MUSE by Berta
Same story as GALA by Galia Lahav, MUSE by Berta is another one of those collaborations. This line is so risk-ay, when I saw their was a trunk show at a local bridal boutique in Tampa, I couldn’t miss it. I am mesmerized by every one of their designs and it seems that I am not the only one. They have over 1.8 million followers on Instagram so they must be doing something right. They would be what you call a #POWERHOUSE in the bridal world.
