Who says Halloween can’t be luxe? With gilded spiders and candy accents, we’re loving Charlotte Olympia’s “Trick or Treat” capsule collection. See the full collection here: http://us.charlotteolympia.com/collections/halloween-2/
We’re sharing more gorgeous details from last year’s WedLuxe Wedding Show with photos from our gown gallery and luxurious gift bar in the “WedLuxe Pavilion.”
The Pavillion featured a custom white and gold floor designed to mimic an aerial view of the gardens of Versailles, complementing the “Springtime in Paris” show theme. The floor was installed by our generous show sponsor, Dance Floor Décor.
A breathtaking Ines Di Santo gown greeted guests as they entered the Pavillion which hosted most of our experience rooms, including our flower market that we shared with you last week and our museum-style gown gallery. Uplighting from Fifth Element Group and boxwoods from Contemporary Furniture Rentals added to the dreamy, romantic feel of the gallery space.
A focal point of the room was an 18ft tall building facade created by the incredibly talented artisans at Decor & More. The facade was the backdrop for our “Le Rêve Boutique & Gift Bar.” The bar was stocked with complimentary product samples and gift items.
There were over 30,000 products for our guests to “shop from,” including treats from Moroccanoil, Bath & Body Works, Vera Wang Fragrances, SS Print Shop, and more. Not to mention countless sweets and stationery treats from our show exhibitors. Attendees also received a complimentary copy of WedLuxe magazine for continued inspiration after they left the show.
We can’t wait to share what we have planned for the 2015 WedLuxe Wedding Show in January! Early bird tickets are going fast, purchase yours today: http://wedluxe.com/2015showtickets/
Pnina Tornai’s Spring 2015 collection hit the runway at New York’s Bridal Market earlier this month. The gowns continue to demonstrate why Pnina is one of the world’s most celebrated wedding gown designers. We chatted with Pnina during a recent trunk show visit at Kleinfeld Hudson’s Bay and she filled us in on the inspiration behind the collection.
WedLuxe: Can you tell us about your Spring 2015 collection and the inspiration behind it?
Pnina Tornai: Butterflies were a real inspiration and the theme is all about transformation. The gowns have detachable pieces to go from full, ball gowns to more fitted, feminine, body-hugging looks. You can wear the gown with the full skirt to the ceremony for that wow factor and then remove the skirt for the reception so that you are more comfortable.
WL: We also loved the sari-inspired gowns from your 2014 collection, can you tell us more about these pieces?
PT: Lots of Indian brides asked for custom dresses and I thought it would be great to have a few gowns that they could try on when they came to see me. The gowns are more inspired by the traditional sari, you don’t need to wrap them. It’s my take on the sari—a Pnina Sari.
We love the fairytale-like crowns and floral garlands worn on the models at Reem Acra’s Fall 2015 runway show. Not to mention, those JAW-DROPPING gowns! Sidenote: we’re also thoroughly enchanted by that AMAZING floral wall!
