We recently came across Chaviano Couture. Not only are the bridal designs elegant, they also have a cause! 20% of proceeds go to charities and mission projects all over the world, such as The Agricultural School for Haiti, Food and Education for Children of India, Clean Water for Mozambique and Food and Medicine for Bethlehem, Israel. Beautiful designs meets beautiful hearts!
We came across this styled bridal shower from Yellow Bird Events. The location was at the beautiful Vibiana. For those who aren’t familiar with this Los Angeles landmark, Vibiana’s history alone is quite intriguing. Vibiana, the formal Cathedral of St Vibiana, is one of Los Angeles’ few remaining nineteenth century landmarks and was completed in 1876. The city’s first cathedral was a stunning work of architecture in a town still emerging from its pueblo origins, yet has an Italian Baroque style. Now known simply as VIBIANA, the venue hosts a wide range of events including fashion shows, fundraisers, live entertainment, and wedding ceremonies and receptions.
Elie Saab revealed the new Haute Couture SS2013 collection, calling it ”An Ode to Delicateness.” The gowns flirt with transparency and delicate embellishments on exquisite lace and soft tulle. Elie Saab plays with soft, spring colors like lilac, ivory, powder blue (perfect for the nontraditional bride that wants to stem away from white.) Other colors such as the rich red hues and blacks are ideal for the bridesmaids that is both elegant and bold.

Monique Lhuillier‘s Fall 2013 Bridal Collection still has us swooned from New York’s Bridal Market a couple weeks ago. We’re still looking back at her collection and admiring all the details from the lace sleeves to the illusion necklines. We feel that any bride with their own shape and style preference could easily select their gown from this collection.
