Featured bridal gown designer: Kenneth Winston

If you're looking for a bridal gown that melds modern sass with old-fashioned charm then Kenneth Winston is your designer. With a lovely selection of wedding gowns that feature Swarovski crystals, fine laces, and beautifully body accentuating silhouettes, Kenneth Winston speaks to the feminine, classical,Southern belle in every bride.

Every bride wants to shine. They want to sparkle. They want to be able to stand out and impress. Kenneth Winston always see brides start their dress shopping with styles that are understated and maybe even more conservative in styling. But as they've proven time and again, once a bride sparkles, they'll never settle for anything less.

With over 30 years if experience, the people behind this charming collection say "The beauty is in the details. Every design element, every intricate lace pattern, every crystal bead we put on our dresses are tirelessly thought out. After 30 years we've become masters of our craft. We create designs across the whole spectrum: From A-line ball gowns with 30,000 crystals beads to seamless all-over lace trumpet silhouettes showcasing our fine expertise in pattern making. More importantly everything flows, every piece and element makes sense. This makes our designs easy to wear and allows our brides to effortlessly walk down the aisle knowing we've taken care of all the details."

With this season's collection Kenneth Winston focused on revisiting traditional build ups and illusion backs. They took what is usually considered conservative design elements, and turned them into something sexy in a classy way, working with low back illusion lace elements, and playing with how the under layer satin slip lining could be shaped to be more revealing, but still elegant with the soft lace illusion layer. They deepened necklines and beaded beautiful new patterns to further shape silhouettes showing off and accentuating curves. And we love the results!

Everything you ever wanted to know about Veils...

Selecting the perfect Bridal Veil to go with your gown is an art! A veil is not something we wear everyday, and selecting one that suits your own style [and that perfectly complements your bridal gown] can be a daunting task. Veils add an extra sense of tradition and flair for occasion. And your veil should enhance your style and personality.

Fun Fact: Did you know that in Ancient Rome Brides appeared enveloped in a saffron-colored haze that symbolized the flame of Vesta, the goddess of home and the provider of life? 

In the modern world… women have a fresh approach when it comes to thinking about the wedding veil, now considered a bridal accessory, rather than a tool worn for modesty.

Today we bring you the first in a weekly series of tried and tested “veil facts” to help any bride find the perfect veil! Designer Justine M of Justine M Couture says...

There are 6 key things to consider when selecting your veil style:

  1. Veil Length (short & flirty or long & dramatic) should complement your gown
  2. The cut of the Veil (refers to the Veil's shape) again be sure to pair with your gown
  3. The gather/thickness of the Veil (the way the veil is attached to the comb)
  4. The number of layers the Veil has (1 is translucent, 2 or more is bold and mysterious)
  5. The Veil's trim (lace along the edge?) or decorative beading (scattered beading?)
  6. The comb type (the way the Veil attaches to your head)

Some brides love a dreamy and bold “full poufy” look that multiple layers creates and some brides prefer a more simple “fine gather” look with a simple trim. Your veil matches your personality more than any other accessory!

Justine M Couture has the capacity to cut any veil in a variety of different thicknesses and lengths. Also comfort is a huge factor on your wedding day so be sure to pick a veil with a metal comb [the only type Justine M Couture uses] that will be comfortable and easy on your hair.
