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) …

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?

I love a unique wedding dress, and this short-sleeved blush gold dress, with a skirt covered in sequins with a floral tulle train is every inch unique and gorgeous. And the really extra special thing about this dress? The bride made it!
From the designer/bride: “Designing wedding dresses and formal wear is my passion and I was finally able to execute the dress of my dreams last fall. Ever since I can remember I had been sketching and accumulating ideas for my wedding, I had even been collecting fabric for my gown during the past couple years. The sequin part of my gown was actually a dress from J.Crew Collection that I bought in 2010 knowing that it needed to be part of my wedding gown because it was so incredibly gorgeous. I took the semester off of school to design and make my wedding gown (and all the wedding decorations). I started on the bottom half of my gown first because that design was pretty solidified in my head. After countless hours of hand-sewing organza and chiffon flowers with hundreds of beads the skirt part was complete and I was in love! The top proved to be more difficult. I could not pick one idea to stick with. There were so many elements I wanted to incorporate and when I finally designed the final bodice I knew it was the perfect match. I sewed on every bead and rhinestone while catching up on Netflix and missing my fiancé who was interning in another state at the time. After more than 250 hours of labor and over 3,000 beads the dress was complete and it was exactly what I wanted!”

Any dress that let’s you twirl is a great dress in my book. And this oatmeal-colored Miss Tashina dress has that perfect spin.
