We love how many of our editorials zero in on one stunning wedding gown, but we gotta say, there’s something really special about being able to envision an entire look, from the dress to the bridesmaids, and even the groom, before you take the plunge. Last month we teamed up with David’s Bridal and photog This Modern Romance to style and shoot Galina Signature’s latest collection, featuring not only a few of our fave wedding gowns, but the bridesmaid dresses and accessories to pair with ’em too. All available in one place! Naturally we had to put our own California spin on them at the fabulous Palihouse West Hollywood:
Would you believe this gorgeous beaded gown is less than $900? Galina Signature offers bold, statement-making gowns starting at under $700, and the best part is that they come in sizes 0-26. If you’re familiar with Galina Signature’s style, you know they’re all about feminine, fitted dresses that you can feel sexy in while still looking like a modern bride. We definitely wanted to play that up a bit by pairing her with a dramatic bouquet from Of The Flowers (swoooon!) and timeless accessories.
We know how much you all love a glamorous sequin bridesmaid dress. These long blouson dresses are the epitome chic, no?
If your wedding is a black tie affair, we also styled our ‘maids in different structured dresses for a more formal vibe. David’s Bridal bridesmaid dresses start at $100 and are all offered in a huge range of styles, colors, and sizes.
The dresses gave our ‘maids just a teensy bit of Old Hollywood glamour, especially when adorned with strappy nude heels and romantic drop earrings. Your whole bridal party can actually complete their look head-to-toe at David’s Bridal with shoes, handbags, jewelry, and accessories to choose from. They even take care of alterations in-house if needed, but of course, you can shop online too.
This beaded lace + organza two-piece was just begging to be given a twirl, if you can’t tell! Such a fun look for a playful, fashion-forward bride. Especially with a sultry pump. And did we mention that the lace bodice is encrusted with over 3,000 beads and sequins? Dreamy.
Next up, a few of our fave purple-hued gowns, ranging from the crepe halter dresses in quartz + plum to an airy chiffon cold shoulder dress in raspberry. Love how jewel tones can pop in any season, don’t you?
Our bride is wearing this Mikado Sheath Wedding Dress. So stunning! It’s a sheath wedding gown that’s flatteringly ruched through the bodice with a dramatic slit on the skirt and crystal brooch detail. This one is so classic and elegant that all it needs is a really, really good heel.
This plunging v-neck beaded illusion gown was crafted from beaded lace, with the neckline and high slit traced in beaded trim too.
David’s Bridal has over 60 years of experience helping brides find their dream dress, no matter their style, shape, size, or budget. Pop over to their site to see the full Galina Signature Spring 2018 line!
