Ana Torres 2009 Bridal Collection

The following dress has a classic basic style which looks lovely but is dressed up with the sun-ray pleats the whole way around the skirt of the dress. It elongates the skirt (and thus the legs) of the bride.The change of direction as the fabric is pulled tight around the waist helps to accentuate the small waist. Loving it.

I’m in love with the next dress because of the use of lace. It looks like very fine lace and that is one of my all time dreams for a wedding dress so of course I was drawn to this dress. The beautiful flow and falling of the skirt, combined with the golden embroidery and pearls around the waist, just top off the whole design. Dream design!

The bottom of the dress and the edging shown on the right side of the dress (the left as we see it) looks horrible. but the photo shoot is gorgeous and the bodice with matching jewelry is nothing short of beautiful.

Lazaro Autumn 2009 Bridal Collection

I absolutely love the set design and backdrop for the photography of this campaign. It’s exquisite and I love the mysterious shadows and lurkings of hidden forests/flora. It’s beautiful and I think it really sets the wedding gowns off with the colour scheme they chose. The dresses stand out extremely well and the detail looks amazing. I’m probably more in love with the photography than the dresses, but as far as big dresses go, I quite like this top dress. I like the details around the bodice with the lace in particular.

Normally I’m not a fan of big puffy “princess” dresses, nor am I a fan of dresses like the one below with the skirt not starting and accentuating outwards until mid thigh, but in this case, I was quite taken back by the design. It still reminds me immensely of the bridesmaid dresses in the movie  My Big Fat Greek Wedding. That alone scares me. I think I am perhaps more impartial to this dress because again I like the photography and the scene.
