If there is one thing we can’t get enough of here at the wedding blog, it’s a blinged-out accessories–bridal belts to be exact. It’s the perfect accoutrement to a simple gown, adding a bit of glam in just the right places. And these options from our friends at Watters are utter perfection.
The JLM Couture show featured the new bridal collections from Jim Hjelm, Alvina Valenta, and Hayley Paige; and as always their presentation was a treat. Jim Hjelm was elegant and classic with a contemporary flair. Sparkle and texture, both big this season, were represented in looks like a petal Chantilly lace trumpet gown and a dutchess satin trumpet dress with an intricate crystal-embroidered bodice. The silk organza sweetheart A-line gown with a draped skirt and subtle side-slit took the look from traditional to modern chic. Alvina Valenta’s standout looks included a silk organza trumpet gown with a deep V-neckline and a Twenties-inspired Chantilly lace dress with a spaghetti-strap blouson bodice. The fashion-forward Hayley Paige did not disappoint with a silk georgette A-line gown with a Grecian-draped bodice featuring a bolero made out of alabaster stones and crystals; and a cashmere lace fit-and-flare gown with lingerie strap detailing.
