A completely unscheduled post today! As I was furiously pinning this morning (after almost a year I pinned my 5000th pin today) I came across these and simply could not resist sharing them, so stop whatever you’re doing and come oooh, ahhh and swoon with me over some of the most extraordinarily romantic wedding dresses you ever will see! Introducing Elie, the 2013 collection by Elie Saab for Pronovias …..
My adoration of Elie Saab is no secret (you only have to look at CVBs Inspiration Boards – barely one goes by without an Elie Saab design cropping up) the man is a genius! He just has an innate ability to design a dress that magnifies the femininity of any lucky lady who gets to wear it. Working with fine materials and delicate embroideries of the most outstanding quality he creates fairytale, yet sophisticated wedding gowns that never fail to highlight a woman’s silhouette……

With this collection floral appliqués take centre stage, adding texture and movement to the season’s beautiful fabrics: tulle, lace, sumptuous silk satin and chiffon. Incredibly all details are entirely handmade: the tulle is scissor-cut, the lace is embroidered by hand and flower petals are applied to the chiffon one by one…..
Simply breathtaking! Which one do you love?
