Earlier this week over at my OneWed column I posted about Otaduy, a bridal gown company out of Spain, and wanted to share my favorite dress from their collection here…its just so easy and breezy, and modern without being TOO austere.

Its been awhile since I’d checked out JCrew‘s wedding options, but they’re still kickin’ it with great designs! I love the shorter dresses for elopements or city hall, and the long ones are just chic for any kind of wedding!

With this minimalist Derek Lam, the dress is the main focus and you don’t need much else except a smiling face.

The gowns from Ines Di Santo were pretty amazing up close…though I have to say my favorite wasn’t a wedding dress at all…this black stunner was INSANE with the details!

I just got back from a 2 week trip to Iceland that rocked my world. From the mountains to the hot springs, to the fashion, Iceland was very much the charmer. I had the lucky fortune to be there for a fashion exhibition at the National Museum, which showed a collection of dress from the 20th century where I became enamored with this wool wedding dress:
Have you ever seen a wedding dress made of wool? This 1959 high-waisted A-lin was inspired by Audrey Hepburn and was made by dressmaker Sigríði Bjardnadóttir for Greta Håkansson. I love how the designer took a very Icelandic element (wool) and created something very au courant. Notice the bouquet and hat made of the same material and style.
