Looking for a wedding dress for your spring wedding? You’re in luck. At the most recent bridal market, there were many dress trends that were just made for spring garden weddings. Here are a few of our favorites:

Floral Motifs: Floral patterns can be showcased on a wedding gown in a variety of ways – embroidery (as shown on the Claire Pettibone gown above), printed fabric, and 3D appliques are the most common.

Lace: This is an obvious one – lace is the ideal fabric for a spring wedding. It’s so feminine and classic, and is available in so many silhouettes, from ballgowns to sheaths, like this Wtoo Brides gown.

Blush: We love that pink is becoming such a popular hue for wedding gowns (hello, Jessica Biel!) – and it’s never more appropriate than in the springtime. Worried that a pink wedding dress won’t allow you to stand out the way a white one would? Let this jaw-dropping Ines di Santo gown prove you wrong!

Tea Length: If you’re getting married outside, there’s no need to get your hem dirty – choose a tea-length dress for a vintage vibe, and to show off your shoes! We adore this David’s Bridal style, as it features another springtime favorite – dotted fabric!

New Wedding Dresses: Claire Pettibone

Posted by Kim on May 24, 2012

In case you haven’t heard, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg married Priscilla Chan last weekend in a surprise backyard ceremony. Priscilla’s gown was a laser-cut floral sheath by designer Claire Pettibone, purchased from Little White Dress Bridal Shop in Denver, Colorado. If you liked Priscilla’s romantic and feminine gown, we thought you’d want to see Claire Pettibone’s newest wedding dresses, straight from New York Bridal Market.

Found It! Priscilla Chan’s Wedding Dress

Posted by Kim on May 21, 2012

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had a pretty fabulous week – capped off with his surprise backyard wedding to Priscilla Chan. The wedding was very low-key, and Priscilla Chan’s wedding dress felt traditional, romantic, whimsical, and relaxed at once. The gown, a laser-cut floral sheath with an illusion neckline and matte sequin details, was by designer Claire Pettibone, who according to her Twitter feed, had “no idea” Priscilla would be wearing one of her creations! Called “Sky Between the Branches,” this gown (right) debuted a few seasons back and retails for $4,700.
