Wedding Dresses

The girls and I have been dress shopping for about 2 weeks now! Here are some dresses and styles that I majorly <3. I print out my "finds" and bring them as examples when we shop around. 
We've been gravitating towards Clara Rosa, Jim Hjelm, Tara Keely by Lazaro Perez, Elie Saab and Anne Barge designs. 

What dresses do you like? I need some help!






Dress made by Emanuelle Junqueira, a Brazilian designer. It's difficult to find information on her dresses but HERE is her contact info.

Erato by Elie Saab for Pronovias





This one has been a bit difficult to track down. The picture was originally taken for Amy Oram who creates her own veils and hair pieces. You can contact her at teeki_@hotmail.com to find more details about the dress in her picture.

  25. Daniela, so sorry! I've been searching for an hour! I can't find the original source. I found this picture on Pinterest.com and it was listed as "uploaded by user". No information was traceable. :( Bummer. I'll keep an eye out for you though!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thank you do much for looking, if I find out I will post it!! X

  27. What about dress 14?

  29. Beautiful dresses. Just as a note: if you do a similar post in the future - might be easier to list the sources in the post so readers can follow the links themselves. As for using Pinterest - it's a great resource but as you've found out, it's not always easy to track down original sources of images. Sorry, I don't mean to sound preachy I just work with alot of wedding bloggers and proper sourcing is something we strive to attain throughout the community. Best of luck with your search and all your planning.

  30. Duly noted. Thanks Jessica...I was thinking the same thing myself. I just made a second wedding dress post a few days ago and did exactly what you were suggesting. Thanks for the comment and thanks for checking out A Bit of Bees Knees.

  31. I wonder if You could just edit this post and list the information as well? Its hard to read through all the questions to find an answer. These are incredible gowns, If I were a bride I would be stalking all your interests. Thank you for taking the time to share with us. (Mother of the Groom/ artist)

  32. Who is the designer of dress 14 in the pictures?

    ReplyDelete
  33. This may be the single most gorgeous collection of wedding dresses I've ever seen. Or, perhaps we just have identical taste ; ).

    ReplyDelete
  34. As for which one to buy... It's about YOU and how you look/feel in the dress, not about the dress and you just happen to be the one wearing it. Without seeing each one on you (or knowing you personally), it's impossible to recommend one over another. The dresses are all gorgeous. Which one highlights YOU?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thanks for the kind words Liza! Guess what!? I found my dress last week! I put that baby on and right away I knew...this is the one! I just love everything about it. I would say that the Watters WTOO collection Style Natalia is the closest design to what I picked for myself. I really like the vintage lace look.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I don't know if you've already identified it, but dress number 9 I believe is Allure Style 8764. I love that dress. Congrats on buying your dress!

  37. I'm getting married this November at the age of 20 so this was very helpful! Thankyou!!! I love lace so this gave me amazing ideas for dresses!

  38. Good luck with everything! I'm glad you like the post!
