Dress Like a Middleton on Your Wedding Day!

On the off chance you haven’t had access to Wifi for two whole days…Kate Middleton’s sister, Pippa, got married this weekend at St. Mark’s Church in Englefield, England! A big congratulations to her and the royal family! As expected, her wedding dress set new bridal goals for all of us. Her classically beautiful lace gown was  designed by Giles Deacon.

“I was thrilled to work with Pippa on her wedding dress,” Giles Deacon said, “The dress is constructed with a cap sleeve, high neckline and features a corseted bodice with draping to the front and a heart-shaped detail at the back.”

Let Lotus Bridal help you recreate this look so you can feel like royalty on your big day!

We chose a Le Papillon gown that mimics Pippa’s, not only by the lace overlay, but also in that it has a similar cap sleeve and a natural waistline. What is great about a natural waistline is that it accentuates the smallest part of your body helping you look and feel your thinnest. You can take this ensemble one step further by adding a petticoat under the gown to give you an Aline shape. Pair this dress with a cathedral veil and diamond headpiece and TAH DAH! You got the royal look!

Lotus Bridal has everything you need to complete your vision including accessories, shoes, veils, and bridal party dresses. Call today to schedule your appointment.

About Last Night…Fun at New York Weddings Event

New York Mag’s Wedding Event outdid themselves this year. The new location, 180 Maiden Lane, had an indoor park which included a green lawn where attendees could relax and enjoy the band. On the lawn, there were tons of yummy treats including macaroons, cake bites and ice cream. The ice cream was provided by 10Below, who actually made their product ON THE SPOT! They poured fresh cream on to a cold slab as you watched the cream freeze! It was so good that we got two! There were other amazing vendors including MilkBar, SharingBox, Beautini, and even dessert superstar Ron Ben-Isreal Cakes!

We were joined by a few of our favorite designers including Badgley Mishka and The Dessy Group. Badgley Misha had out their fabulous bridal shoes that we carry in store at both of our locations. The Dessy Group had out their new bridesmaids dresses that we know from experience bride’s absolutely love.

Overall, it was a great day filled with networking, snacking, and meeting new brides. We are already looking forward to next year!!

Golden Globes 2016

This Past weekend the 2016 Golden Globes aired and we must say, we at Lotus Bridal were obsessed with the gorgeous looks walking down the star studded red carpet. The ladies truly brought glamour to this years show. We loved seeing all of the styles ranging from old Hollywood to ethereal goddesses. When seeing the dresses we couldn’t help but be reminded of some of the gowns we have here at Lotus Bridal. Here are some of our favorite looks from the award show next to gowns that we have to help you achieve the same look.

 

We love award season because celebrities and their stylists set the trends for what we will begin to see in gowns throughout the year. These dress trends are not just for the red carpet, they can transcend into your wedding day! If you like to inquire about any of the dresses featured in this post, or to come in and check out our other gorgeous gowns please call or email to set up your appointment.

 

Sofia’s Custom Stunner

Congratulations are in order for the “Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara and her actor husband Joe Manganiello. The couple tied the knot this weekend in Palm Beach, Florida in a stunning star studded ceremony.

Sofia has been known to wear the most glamorous gowns on the red carpet so for her wedding we expected nothing less than amazing. She worked with couture designer Zuhair Murad to design this one of a kind gown.

The wedding gown featured 11 pounds of sequins, 6 pounds of pearls, a hand embroidered bodice. 32 people worked approximately 1,600 hours of labor to construct the dress. The designer gave Sofia the best of both worlds with this gown. She walked down the aisle in a dramatic flowing ballgown, then later removed the detachable skirt and danced the night away in a curve hugging fit and flare.

We here at Lotus Bridal could not be more in love with Sofia Vergara’s wedding gown. We loved the idea of having a different look for both the ceremony and reception by simply adding or removing pieces to the gown. Because of that, we are excited to announce that in 2016 we will be featuring a new designer to our ever expanding collection by the name of Martina Liana. Her Together Forever collection features separate pieces so each bride can customize her perfect wedding dress. Stay tuned to find out when this collection will arrive so that you can book your appointment with us here at Lotus Bridal.
