LaurenElaineReceptionCollection

About the Reception Collection: We’ve created this collection in direct response to a growing demand for non-traditional wedding gowns. Whether it’s a dress for the first dance at a wedding reception, or a dress for the bride who’s opted for a civil ceremony, weddings and related celebrations come in all varieties, and we really wanted to embrace that.  Many brides don’t want to wear the same dress they wore for their ceremony. The reception is all about the celebration. It’s a party! And the ‘Reception Collection’ offers bridal dresses that are fun to wear, and are perfect for the post-nuptials festivities. The femininity and overall prettiness of 1950’s silhouettes have always been a favorite of mine. I wanted to capture that lady-like elegance in the ‘Reception Collection,’ while keeping the looks wearable and flattering on all shapes and sizes.

Along with the easy-to-wear A-line shapes and tea-length hemlines, the ‘Reception Collection’ boasts lady-like charm with luxurious textures and details usually reserved for gowns of higher price points– and lady-like names for each of the four initial styles: the “Priscilla”, the “Shirley”, the “Lana,” and the “Margaret.”  The “Shirley” features a signature ombre tulle skirt and bodice, available in 3 colors (Blushing, Mint-to-Be, and Something Blue.)  Swarovski crystals and three-dimensional embroidered flowers pepper the cropper-mermaid silhouette of the “Margaret,” with French corded lace and satin adorning the more classic “Priscilla” and “Lana” styles.

Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter at Lauren Elaine Online and look for the launch of the Reception Collection tomorrow!

TREND TUESDAY: Oversized Bows

Today’s trend: Oversize Bows. As seen on the cover and inside the current issue of Brides Magazine, oversized bows are having a moment.  Not only do they add a punch of unexpected drama with the right placement, but if you select a gown featuring a self-tying bow, like the Lauren Elaine Briarleigh, you can create the shape and look you prefer –from big and voluminous to loose and draped.

TREND TUESDAY: 3-D Flowers

In the spirit of the New Year, we’re introducing new weekly themes to the blog! Today, I’m happy to be kicking off ‘Trend Tuesday’ - a weekly post highlighting timely trends in bridal fashion.

Today’s trend: 3-D Flowers. As seen in the current issue of Brides Magazine, currently on newsstands, up the luxe in your bridal look with textured flowers. Whether on the neckline, hemline, or even added to a veil or headpiece, texture is always exciting and decadent, and lace flowers keep the effect feminine and touchable.

Many of the newest Lauren Elaine Bridal gowns are peppered with our signature, 3-D french corded lace hand embroidered flowers – including the new Gardenia, Aurelia, Ivy, Aurora, and even the soon-to-be released Margaret dress from the upcoming “Reception Collection.” Lauren Elaine Bridal Brides Magazine Review

If you’re keeping your gown look sleek but want a pop of floral, experiment with a textured hair accessory like the “Empress” headpiece (available by special order, salesrep@lauren-elainedesigns.com, see below.)
