Birmingham Bridal Show 2/2011

Many thanks to the great models who showed off our selection of gowns to their very best.  The girls did a great job.  Special thanks to T.J. Holmes, Birmingham, for his help with the design and set up of our booth and the runway decorations.  TJ was also a huge help to the girls during the show.  You are THE BEST TJ, thanks.

Our show started with our little girl, Ella Vest, asleep on the runway.  She was apparently dreaming of the day she would walk down the asile in a beautiful gown.  She entered the gates of the enchanted garden and behold………. a whole array of fashion began.  The veils were shown with the model wearing all black to better she the intricate detailing of the veils.

At the conclusion of the program, little Ella again appeared, saying “wait for me” to the models.  This time she was dressed in a beautiful little maids gown from US Angels.

We had a great time and hope to be invited to do another show soon.

So…2be comfortable on your wedding day or not to 2be comfortable on your wedding day? That is certainly NOT the question for Kathy Ireland.

“Choose something that fits you [and] that’s comfortable. That is critical, ” says the model turned designer, who just launched her bridal line, kathy ireland Weddings by 2be, in partnership with Mon Cheri Bridals at the Chicago Bridal Market in October. (Note: The Website is still in progress—we have the early scoop from Kathy herself!) The collection boasts more than 30,000 designs of comfortable yet couture gowns for the bride, mother of the bride and bridesmaids. And all are at reasonable prices ranging from $800 to $3,200.Ireland says looking back, she would change some things about the gown of her own 1988 nuptials. “I’d go with something much more elegant today—clean lines. I think I was inspired by Princess Diana’s wedding. My sleeves were bigger than my head!”

 What inspires her these days is the confidence of a well-dressed bridal party. “We spend more time on our inner construction than on the outside,” Ireland says of the structure of her dresses. “We’ve got 22 ‘bones’ that support our gorgeous plus-size models. I can’t think of anything more beautiful than a woman who is comfortable in her own skin. So much of that comes from having a good fit.”

Can you just imagine falling out of a strapless wedding gown or ripping your one-size-too-tight bridesmaid dress? Ireland has been witness to both, actually, and so she spreads cautionary tales about getting an ill-fitting dress or going with strapless even though it feels uncomfortable.

As for the wedding of this century (no, not mine), Ireland envisions Prince William’s lady, Kate Middleton, in “something elegant and flowing, with a long train and silk and drape and florals.” Regardless of the pick, she hopes comfort prevails. That’s necessary, even for a princess.

Truth is, we are all our own definition of a princess on our special day, aren’t we? “When you think about it, the wedding is truly the ultimate red carpet event.”
