If you know anything about me, you know I’m constantly looking for fresh and new designers that are going to knock my socks off. I’ve latched onto a few that I discovered early into their careers (Claire Pettibone, Inbal Dror, Yaki Ravid, etc.) and I’ve enjoyed watching them grow and be successful.
I stumbled upon Eliza Jane Howell bridal and I was blown away. The 20s silhouettes and shimmering designs were almost too much to handle! They are luxurious and intricately designed and if you do a little digging you will find out that they are HAND BEADED and sometimes HAND EMBROIDERED!! Brb…currently dying!!
The designer has been nominated (and won) Best Bridal Designer at U.K. Bridal Awards…so why haven’t I heard of her yet??!! *facepalm*

Okay, I’m super picky- I’ll admit it. I only liked one gown from MZ but I can tell you it’s super classy, flowy and universally flattering on all brides! What are your thoughts?
There should be a bumper sticker that says “I brake for Claire Pettibone!” Seriously, I should get paid for how much I shout her out. Let me just say, I think that Claire has a secret compartment hiding in my brain that she secretly taps into when she’s designing her collections. Every gown in her collection speaks to me and she never lets me down! Photo cred: @clairepettibone instagram & Snapchat

Looking for shine? Then look no further than Lazaro!!! His exquisite detailing matches with unmistakable shine arethe perfect pair to these gorgeous gowns. Photo cred: @whitesposa instagram
This year’s market has been filled with flowing capes, glittering trains and an abundance of lace and I can’t wait to share my favorites with you.
