My favorite magazine! Not only because of its glossy pages & high end bridal fashion but also because its has so many cute & romantic ideas from dresses, shoes & hair to jewelry to flowers, wedding decor & alot more. While I was going through this month's issue I thought of sharing some of the things I really liked with YOU pretty ladies, so start scrolling!

Most pretty Victor Harper gown on the left. This satin fit-to-flare gown has a jeweled bodice & hip line.
Another one by Jim Hjelm, luving this ivory silk organza A-line sleeveless bridal gown with V-neckline, sophisticated lace & chapel train..
And my most fav by Liancarlo, elegant mermaid gown in lace with sexy V-neckline, romantic cap sleeves & crystal applique on satin around the waist. I'm luving the lips & rosy cheeks!
How adorable is this 'elbow length' veil on this pretty Mary's Bridal mermaid gown from their Unspoken Romance collection..
I luv the overall look of this Da Vinci wedding gown!

Yes this Simone Carvalli gown is awesome but it’s actually the black chandeliers & carpet in the background that really caught my attention - so retro & sexy!
