: bliss : do you remember these?





I thought the ads for Reem Acra's bridal gowns, from 2005, were absolutely stunning. They seemed to be inspired by the style of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, with the big floral up-do's and the colorful wrap worn at the hips in one image, exactly as Kahlo did for her wedding to Diego Rivera. The photos are just as gorgeous today. (It's amazing what you can find when you go through old books and magazines!)

So gorgeous, the model, the dress, the hair and the flowers! Lovely to see wedding gowns at any time but this is so pretty and feminine AND it has a sleeve. I am so over the current trend of strapless wedding gowns.

Thanks for visiting, ladychiara!

I agree, it is lovely to see something beyond the usual strapless style in wedding gowns. There are so many beautiful neckline and sleeve possibilities, which are so flattering.

Thank, Laurie! I posted them on Pinterest, on my :: bliss :: bridal style board. (I'm obsessed with all things wedding-related now!)
