We’re a sucker for wedding gowns in all shapes and sizes. Here are a few of our favorite gowns from the weddings of 2011 brides.
Today’s Southern Weddings V4 feature is our third and final Southern by Design! Desiree Spinner and her team imagined a Southern boy and a Northern girl, and showed us what their Nantucket wedding might look like. The result? A charming play on Nantucket reds + red velvet cake, with gorgeous red chivari chairs thrown in for good measure! Trent Bailey photographed the scene to perfection (we would expect nothing less from a good Southern boy, even one that’s transplanted to New York!). Be sure to check out the issue for the full story, and sneak a peek at a few more images in the editorial gallery!

Hey, y’all! It’s Marissa, back with more wedding goodness from Bridal Market 2010. Oh, Amsale, how I adore thee! Clean, classic and oh-so Southern details, including large satin bows and super fun party dresses! (I’ll admit: we have a bit of a soft spot in our office for Amsale, since Katharine wore the Blakely to her wedding this September!)
We ended our day at the Priscilla of Boston show. And what a way to end! We rode up to the show in a converted freight elevator that was bigger than my bedroom to a chandelier-lit industrial loft. There six different lines being showcased, and wow, were they different. From soft lace A-lines with pastel grosgrain ribbon belts to satin full-skirted gowns with flowing trains and beaded bodices, the Priscilla of Boston collection had something for every bride. Below: Fred riding up in the semi-truck-size elevator, Lara with high school friend and Priscilla of Boston makeup artist Roberto Casey!, Lara with Salt Lake City friends Hilary from Alta Moda Bridal and Tessa from Utah Bride and Groom Magazine.
This was pretty much us the whole time… charging phones while we could, tweeting live video, tweeting dresses! Just wait till you see what’s next y’all!
