2011 bridal trends!

We spent last weekend in New York city at bridal market visiting our designers and see the latest trends for 2011. Here is an update.

Romance continues for 2011. We saw lots of soft fabrics like organza and tulle, often paired with lace. Texture was represented in all of the collections- from ruffles, to layers to flowers- it is all about the dimension!

It’s hard to believe, but Pickups are back! Almost all of our designers had some version of pickup skirts in their collection.

Romance is in! Full skirts graced all of the runways. Here is a sampling of our dreamy favorites!

The other popular skirt silhouette was the trumpet skirt.

It was tough choice, but our two favorite gowns from market are below!

costa rica baby!

My latest photo shoot adventure is in the beautiful country of Costa Rica. As a result of our New Orleans shoot, we were approached by stay in costa, an organization that represents the top resorts in Costa Rica. They asked us to come and put together a wedding photo shoot that they could use for their marketing (and that we can use for ours as well). I am with some of the top talents in the bridal industry~ Candice of Jubilee Events, Carla Teneyck, Datura a modern garden, Mike of Buzz Media and DD Nickel.

We will be shooting over the course of two days. The first day we are shooting a mock wedding on a black sand beach- complete with a calypso band! The second day, we are shooting in the rain forest amongst the amazing foliage of this beautiful country. The inspiration board for the shoots is above.

Stay in costa knows how to do things right and has put us up in an amazing home set on the grounds of Los Suneos Resort. The ‘villa’ that we are staying in is like nothing I have experienced. It is called La Casa de Suenos (the house of dreams) and it is truly that- and then some! You must click the link to check it out! It is MTV cribs on steroids! We have our own pool with swim up bar, showers that can fit 10 people in them and our own private chef! I could get used to this!

Stay tuned for photos of the finished product! It is sure to be amazing with this dream team!

xoxo, TWD
