Tied Up With Bows

A chic detail never goes out of style, but, right now, bows are big! We love them on gowns, in wedding day ‘dos, on fabulous shoes…pretty much anywhere. Though bows are great when used as part of an overall wedding day theme, the great thing about them is that they don’t have to be. Simply tying your gown’s sash in a lush bow is enough to add a touch of My Fair Lady panache.

Bridal Style {Elbow Length Veils}

At the intersection of contemporary and traditional and cathedral length and blusher is the elbow length veil. For brides-to-be that love the classic veiled look but are modern girls at heart, this pretty style is just what the wedding planner ordered.

Whether edged in lace, scattered with sparkle or with a simple, clean-cut edge, this happy medium veil (which, we should mention, doesn’t strictly stop at your elbow) is a total catch!

To see what we mean, have a look below at our real brides sporting their elbow length veils:

The Kentucky Derby has a storied history, great food (mint juleps and Hot Browns, anyone?), as well as really fabulous style…all of which makes for wonderful wedding inspiration.

Of course, an elegant, classic wedding gown and Derby fascinator or hat is a must. When paired with a be-ribboned bouquet and shoes that echo the rosettes of the winner’s circle, you’ll be ready for your wedding day at the races!

Bridal Hairstyle {Ponytail}

Ponytails were all over the runways at Spring 2012 New York Fashion Week and are sure to be spotted on ladies everywhere as the weather heats up! Though casually throwing your hair up in a ponytail is more familiar than wearing a ponytail while saying “I do,” we think this flirty ‘do is great for the aisle.

Wear your ponytail high and full for a look that is elegantly retro…

Lea-Ann Belter Bride’s Bustles



1. A frame or pad to support and expand the fullness of the back of a woman’s skirt.

2. A bow, peplum, or gathering of material at the back of a woman’s skirt below the waist.

PostsAs far as definitions go, this one describing a bustle doesn’t help much! In wedding gown lingo, a bustle is what is formed with a gown’s train to raise it off the floor and make way for your dancing feet.

There are a few different kinds, American and French being the most popular, but it’s hard to imagine what exactly your Lea-Ann Belter Bridal gown will look like bustled!

Thanks to a few of our gorgeous brides, we can share how some women have bustled their Lea-Ann Belter gowns:
