Last Sunday, I had the privilege of a private viewing of the beautiful dresses offered by Solutions Bridal. I was on a quest to find the perfect vow renewal dress for my ten-year anniversary in New York City in December, and Solutions Bridal did not disappoint. Ladies, if you’re a bride-to-be or even looking for a stunning cocktail party dress, you simply can’t do better than the collections offered by Solutions Bridal. Carmen Steffens generously supplied some of their latest styles to pair with the dresses, which made the whole experience all the more fantastic.
I will be sharing three looks with distinctly different styles over the next few days. Since the dress is not for an actual wedding ceremony, my search for the right look took a non-traditional route. Here is look 1:
My first look was this beautiful Rivini Martinique dress in navy. Oh, how I fell in love with Chantilly lace detail. This dress is stunning beyond words. It is paired with the super hot pumps from Carmen Steffens. I love how the pink pumps add a pop of color.
My second look is this red festive cocktail dress by ML Monique Lhuillier. I was immediately drawn to this dress. Of course, I was also immediately drawn to the Rivini dress above. So many beautiful options that it was difficult to choose. This dress made the final list of three because I like the classic shape of the dress and the lace detail. I also love how the varying shades of red add depth to the dress. Initially, we paired gold Carmen Steffens shoes with this look. Those shoes are fabulous, but not with this dress. Don’t worry, you’ll see the gold beauties paired with the final look. We decided to keep it simple since there is so much detail in the dress. We went with a black suede heel with a pop of red. The look is complete with gold accents from beautiful Maria Elena earrings and hair clip.
The final look is a romper from Encore by Watters Bridal. This is a fun, but sophisticated look. The lace detail is beautiful. The waist is finished with grosgrain ribbon and back of the romper has small grosgrain bows that fasten all the way down the back. One of my favorite features of the romper – pockets! I love when designers include pockets. The shoes and bag are courtesy of Carmen Steffens. As soon as I saw these shoes, I was in love. Not only are the shoes beautiful, they are super comfortable. This was my first time trying shoes by Carmen Steffens and now I’m a huge fan.
Now you have seen all three looks. All of which are very different and beautiful in their own way. Which one do you think I selected? If it helps to know the atmosphere of the venue, check out my post about Little Owl The Venue.
I would like to give special thanks to Roberta Noronha, Jamie O’Neill, Jessica, and the whole Solutions Bridal team for making this process so special and fun. And, a special thank you to Carmen Steffens for providing fabulous shoes and handbags to complete the looks.
