best of the best: spring 2010 bridal week part II

of course i would love to do an exhaustive review of the entire bridal week for spring 2010 but this is a wedding blog, not just fashion. and not to mention, i honestly do not have time to do it :) but that is why i have provided you with the "best of the best" so you won't have to scour through pages and pages of gowns, but you can just see the goods :) and if i have left you wanting more, well, that my friend is what gown fridays are for! so don't you worry, i shall continue my search and zeal for fabulous design and unparalleled wedding fashion and bring it straight to you! so to finish off our hot list for spring 2010 here it is:

angel sanchez (also seen above) has created such masterpieces in his 2010 spring collection! gorgeous detailing with feminine touches on a very structural design makes for a stunning combination! i love his designs full of clean lines, intricate millinery flowers, and crisp white silhouettes--a perfect spring romance!

i am so happy to see vera wang continue with color in her collection. as i have said before, not all brides will want to wear yellow or perhaps it was a dream come true for the fashion designer to create a black wedding gown (not shown and black? really?)...but you can't deny the beauty of a soft blush taffeta gown. right? and for all of you vera lovers: thanks to her hard work and graciousness she has given us the same intricate and chic design but at more reasonable prices for these very unreasonable economic times--some of her gowns are under $3,000!! oh my goodness, i may have to convince my husband i need another wedding dress just for good measure :)

jenny packham continues to dazzle us with her vintage hollywood inspired gowns--love them!!

reem acra brought a sense of royalty to the runway with his fairy-tale inspired collection. in an effort to beautifully detract us all from doom and gloom, he said, "I had enough of fashion, fashion, fashion. I wanted this to be dreamy, dreamy, dreamy..." well said! who doesn't want to get lost in the thoughts of cinderella, snow white, or sleeping beauty? sleeping beauty is my favorite damsel in waiting...though i don't know which of his gowns is her. but i'll take the middle one :)

oh the sweetest thing...yes, and finally we have melissa sweet. wonderfully romantic! can't get enough of this first gown. ah! breathtaking!

...oh dear...i must add these two gown stand-outs! platinum for priscilla of boston & anna maier/ulla-maija couture, respectively.

okay! i'm done...for now :)
see you tomorrow for a special edition of gown friday!
