Hello, my breathtaking Real Weddings readers. We’re excited to share some fabulous dresses from Second Summer Bride in Sacramento with you. Karla Fuentes reveals some her favorite looks currently available. Enjoy!
JIM HJELM, 8320
The dress is a rich creamy ivory and has a delightful embroidered tulle with ribbon and floral detail pattern. We love the strapless sweetheart neckline with the peek-a-boo tulle, circular skirt with a high-low hem, and the gorgeous sweep train. It’s truly magical and fun to wear.
HAYLEY PAIGE, HP6457 MINIDRESS & HP6459 OVERSKIRT
Who doesn’t love a two-in-one? This beautiful set allows for a traditional styled ceremony and a fun little ditty for your reception. We have Hayley Paige’s “Byron” sleeveless knee-length lace sheath wedding dress with a v-neckline and spaghetti straps matched with the “Langston” skirt.
VERA WANG, LINDSEY (120413)
This couture mermaid gown is definitely going to turn heads. If you want a sexy feminine look, then this is the perfect dress! It’s part of Vera Wang’s Fall 2013 collection, and includes the additional beaded embroidery on the side of the dress. The nettle hidden lace detail all over the bodice is to die for, and it photographs beautifully.
This dress gives you a little bit of everything: tulle and feather gown, a bodice with criss-cross tulle draping, a heart-shape neckline and asymmetric feather and soutage appliqué on the side. Frilled mermaid skirt with tulle herringbone waist and organza finished with nylon ribbon.
JENNY PACKHAM, BARDOT
We LOVE the Bardot, classy, elegant, striking and with a gold hue to the bead work, flattering on every skin tone! Rock this with an art-deco vibe for that pure old-world Hollywood glamour and timeless elegance (originally showcased on a plus size model – proving you don’t have to be a size zero to be a Jenny Packham bride!)
