It’s been so fun to introduce y’all to some of the newest wedding dresses from our favorite designers over the past few weeks! We love peeking at their new collections, and figured y’all would love a first look at them, too.

Today we’re all about the beauties coming out of Maggie Sottero. Maggie’s dresses tend to be lightweight, feminine, and romantic, making them perfect for destination weddings! The materials and shapes are almost always easily packable, needing just a light steaming once you reach your destination to be aisle-ready. Which is great, because if you’re having a destination wedding, you want to make sure that you have as much time as possible to ski the slopes or lounge by the beach with the dear ones who’ve joined you!

A perfect example Reynold, the dress we’re sharing today. It features a removable jacket for a customized look; illusion off-the-shoulder sleeves for an elegant and current feel; and a unique illusion double-lace train.

Like Reynold, Maggie Sottero’s Avery Collection features a variety of dreamy silhouettes and shimmering embellishments. Scalloped hemlines and heirloom lace were two of our favorite details. Each was inspired by the magic of a timeless wedding and today’s romantic bride, which sounds just about perfect for us at Southern Weddings :)

Head here to see the full Spring 2017 Collection by Maggie Sottero, and here to find your closest store. I’d love to hear: are you having a destination wedding? And if so, where?

One of the more beautiful things about the South right now is that you don’t have to be born here to fit right in with our culture. (In fact, I’m actually a Southerner by choice, not birth!) Southern brides can pick and choose from the best the world has to offer while planning their weddings, combining details from here and there to find the mix that best represents them AND the grace and warmth of our part of the country.

One of my favorite examples? Bridal gown designers! Fashion houses around the world are keying into details that gals like us are drawn to — heirloom lace, fabulous bows, sweet rows of buttons — meaning sometimes the most Southern look can be sourced from halfway around the globe.

Rosa Clará is one such designer I think all Southern brides should know about. I’m always drawn to their sleek shapes, classic styling, and yes, perfectly-placed bows, and I think y’all will be, too!

Today’s bride, Skye, is a perfect example! Though her wedding took place in California, her Rosa Clará gown’s sweet neckline, dainty beading, and breezy material would have worked equally well in the South.

You can view all of Rosa Clará’s lovely gowns on their site, and by visiting a salon near you. Don’t miss the Nassau, Namibia, Neida, Neira, Niher, Neiva, or Nazar dresses from their Spring 2017 collection as you browse! Seriously though, too many favorites :)

I’d love to hear: what was Southern about your wedding gown? I think my gown’s tulle skirt was very feminine, which I think is an attribute many Southern gals claim (though of course each in her own way!).

    My gown was from Rosa Clara. I loved the luminous silk and classic elegance. They also customized the gown for me, putting a giant bow on the back!

In 2015, we featured 187 beautiful, meaningful Southern weddings here on our blog. Every single one was SO special to us–it’s truly an honor to learn about each couple’s story, and the fact that they so generously invite us into this precious day of their lives is something we never take lightly. Every year, we love going back through each wedding (yup, every single one!) to round up some of the most unique, memorable details–those things that even months later, we remember the most vividly. I’m kicking things off today with my personal favorite category: bridal looks! A wedding dress holds a whole story within itself–the moment the bride realized it was the one for her, the second her groom sees her in it for the first time, and so much more. We love the way these ladies chose dresses, accessories, hair styles, and makeup that perfectly complemented the styles of their weddings and added to the stories of their wedding days. Without further ado, our most memorable bridal looks of 2015!
