Although I went just a bit glam for our first wedding (and I say first wedding here, because I have every intention of marrying my hubby a hundred times over … we like to throw a great party, and tell the world how much we love each other … because, yep, we’re that couple), I have always planned to go a bit more bohemian for our next wedding (or ten). And these dreamy wedding dresses from the new Rue de Seine 2014 ‘Young Love’ Collection are everything I’ve ever dreamed of and more.
The new collection called ‘Young Love’, was inspired by the modern bride; it’s all about the restless spirit of new and young love.
From Rue de Seine:
“We have tried to capture this feeling with flowing silhouettes and bohemian inspired embroideries and laces. We are particularly thrilled this season about our hand crochet gowns and bold beaded florals on nude fabrics. The collection is romantic, feminine, and embodies the carefree spirit of the Rue de Seine bride.”
By the way, I had a really tough time narrowing down my favorites, so you should definitely check out the full collection on Magnolia Rouge.

In truth, a big billowy white tulle tutu gets me every time, but re-imagined as part of a delicate sleeved lace wedding dress is just stunning. I love the length of the tulle skirt – perfect for the couple’s beach wedding, and the details, from the buttons down the back of the bride’s dress to the polka-dotted birdcage veil, are just perfect.
From the bride, on her dress: “I would have never found exactly what I wanted unless I had it made. My dress consisted of a large ballerina skirt and lace top that buttoned in a V at the back, it was made by Carmelita, a seamstress in Lagos. I really want to wear it all the time.”

This stunning wedding dress takes “something blue” to a whole new level. And after falling in love with that blue and white silk Valentino dress in the Street Style Trend Report on florals, this bustled wedding dress easily stole my heart. (I’m always game for a bold wedding dress, especially one with a gorgeous blue print and a classic French nod!)
The bride also happens to have such a way with accessories … those gold Gucci sandals are oh-so right!

Happy Saturday! I wanted to share this absolutely gorgeous wedding dress today. The peeks of lace through the bust and all along the back are just stunning and it’s the perfect mix between sexy and demure, which I love. And that dainty crystal belt; it’s perfect. I’m also really digging the double braided updo … is it Spring yet?

There’s certainly something to be said for walking into a beautiful wedding boutique and trying on dress after dress. And truth be told, you’ll want to do just that, to get an idea for the shapes that flatter and the general size that fits your body best, but so many brides in this day and age are ordering their wedding dresses online. (I did too!)
These are a few of my favorite off the rack wedding dresses (available online right now) …
By the way, most of these dresses are available at Shopbop, where there is an amazing sale going on right now! (You could get up to 30% off your dream designer wedding dress!)

Before Glitter, Inc. became the new home of Glitter & Pearls and Glitter Weddings, I used to post my favorite wedding dress of the week (over on Glitter Weddings, of course.) Since merging the two sites I worried that too much wedding content might turn a few readers off (when you blog, you worry about things like this all of the time!) But after a few months hiatus from weekly wedding dress drooling (in the form of “Dress of the Week”), I’ve decided that everyone could use a little extra gorgeous in their lives. And really, who doesn’t want to swoon over a stunning wedding dress for two minutes on a Friday morning?
So, without further ado, “Dress of the Week”, in all it’s former glory …
I am so so taken by this lace dress with sleeves. And the buttons carefully sewn along the edge of each sleeve … wow. I love how trends change … fifty years ago, everyone wore a dress with sleeves; today it’s strapless for nearly every bride, so when a dress with sleeves comes along, it kind of steals your heart. And can we talk about that vintage 1920s veil?
