This year’s My Wedding Bridal Bash featured anything but traditional wedding attire. Patterns, textures and colors other than customary black and white rocked the runway. Denver’s top bridal shops dazzled the crowd of future brides, grooms, bridesmaids, groomsmen and their supportive family members with a variety of wedding wear for any member of the bridal party.
“Bridal is really going nontraditional,” says Emma Boesel of Emma & Grace. “Emma & Grace is all about catering to the funky or unique bride who wants to show off her personality. We’ve been seeing a lot of color and prints this year.”
Emma & Grace featured off-white or cream colored gowns while still including some classic elements like satin, sweetheart tops and tastefully tiered tulle. Unique looks like the metallic and lace Kelly Faetanini gown and a water-colored sweetheart cut topping off a peachy cream tulle bottom on a David Fielden gown made a beautiful statement on the runway.
Sully & Co. also gave classic wedding fashion a run for its money with hip menswear looks like bold pants in tangerine and olive mixed with striped suit jackets and ties. Sully & Co. also broke the mold with nautical blue shorts mixed with a striped sports coat for laid-back but ultra trendy wedding attire.
Haute children’s boutique, Heloise, made wedding fashion fun, trendy and comfortable for kids by adding adorable silver cat ears to a classic white flower girl dress and using a trendy floral patterned fabric for a traditionally shaped dress. Suiting for boys looked sharp yet relaxed with a red gingham button down.
While most of the runway featured modernized classic looks, not all were completely strayed from traditional bridal. Local bridal shops Anna Bé and A & Bé featured a variety of gowns from fairytale frills to covered up couture. There were classic looks like the sculptured satin Anna Maier dress, as well as ultra-trendy bohemian looks like the flow, fringe and lace mixed to create the “Cleo” dress by Rue De Seine.
Another common theme was Gatsby glam detailing or headpieces. Emma & Grace featured a beautiful off-white beaded gown with stunning detail by Theia, and A & Bé added a flapper-inspired headpiece by Nerida Mason to a simple white sheer-sleeved gown by Katie May.
With such a variety of styles and featured trends, guests of the 2015 My Wedding Bridal Bash were sure to find a look that’d compliment their personality and make them look and feel amazing on their special day!
