Fashion & Style News: Net-a-Porter Launches Bridal Boutique

February 16, 2010

 Just in time for brides-to-be (like moi), Net-a-Porter has relaunched The Wedding Boutique. Brides can visit the online store and search for the perfect dress, bridesmaid dresses and accessories. Brides fall under four categories: Classic Bride, Minimalist Bride (I think that would be me), Bohemian Bride and Fashion Forward Bride.

Brides will find gown from designers such as Lanvin, Temperly London, Alberta Ferretti, Roberto Cavalli, and Vivienne Westwood Gold Label. The beauty of the site is that it combines all the luxury of Net-a-Porter with the special sentiment of the bride-to-be. Also on the new is the Wedding Magazine, a supplement to the current Net-a-Porter magazine which is issued every Wednesday

Bridal orders will shipped as soon as they are received, an added bonus for the bride who may be in a rush to jump the broom. Bridal gowns on Net-a-Porter retail from $3,000 to $15,000. Platinum status only need apply.

The Brides Have It….

As the wedding season continues well into October and beyond, brides are in search of the perfect dress for the big day. Fashion houses who design for the bride with a budget in mind, are enabling the i-doers to spend more money on things other than attire. Lines like J. Crew and David’s Bridal can help brides save money. For the brides without spending limitations, they can have a greater selection of designers. Wedding gowns from Amsale, Romona Keveza, Vera Wang, Jim Hjelm, Monique Lhuillier, and others provide elegant looks for brides who want to really make a statement.

The key to selecting the perfect bridal gown is to consider three things: budget, body shape, and theme. You want your gown to blend well with the overall aura of the wedding. In other words, you don’t want to show up to a beach wedding in a huge princess dress dragging through the sand! And let’s not forget the bridesmaids. You want them to look good, but not take over! Select gowns that complement their shapes and budgets as well.

Lastly the perfect shoe is key to completing the overall look. And whether you’re a stiletto diva or flip-flop mama, choose a shoe that fits and goes well with your gown.
