I don’t know if you guys have heard, but we have been falling hard for Jenny Yoo lately. Last season, she showed playful Jenny by Jenny Yoo, a luxurious & glamorous bridal collection & fashionable dresses my bridesmaids are begging for (seriously, the Pinterest board is like every shade of Jenny Yoo).
So, when we received the invite to join their private Fall 2018 collection preview for bridal fashion week, you can bet we were the very first to RSVP: Y-E-S!
The bridal studio was transformed into an autumn garden scene with a wild, growing altar (reminiscent of our fabulous Flutere piece, no?). The greenery sculpture popped with florals of burnt orange, blush, and crisp white. We got to snap a few photos of the photoshoot in the works while sipping on champagne and chatting with Jenny – not a terrible way to spend an evening at work!
As models twirled in the new collection’s deep and sultry bridesmaid dresses alongside tailored sophisticated bridal gowns, I fell even more in love with the brand thanks to the incredible warmth I received from Jenny and her team. I wish I could share on a loud-speaker to the wedding world – Guys! Jenny is so nice!
We brides know how important it is to hire wedding vendors who you vibe with, but sadly we rarely get to meet our dressmakers. Well, I can tell you, if you buy your gown from Jenny, you’re supporting the loveliest person with an incredible team.
The bridesmaid collection continued Jenny’s commitment to let your girls have their red-carpet-moment (hallelujah!) With a focus on Fall colors – like Sedona Sunset, Whipped Apricot & Dark Berry (five stars for the color naming team!) – the gowns share the same flattering silhouettes from her last dazzling bridal party collection. Velvet finds a focal space in the line, for cooler temps and luxe bridetribe vibes.
This Fall, you’ll find deeper, flattering necklines, and open backs with romantic fluttering sleeves. Hens looking for that sleek, fashion girl look (silk spaghetti straps are my thing!) might flock to the high neck Cameron dress in a light “Petal” champagne color that I’d probably even wear to my own wedding. (How many dresses can I wear, again?)
The Fall Jenny by Jenny Yoo Bridal collection maintains her iconic clean lines, and beloved playful silhouettes of past collections, but adds the slightest, delectable “fashion edge”.
At first glance, Avery is seemingly classic – a flattering, clean, A-line gown. Take a twirl and you find sheer, illusion panels with preppy plaid detailing (the fabric is so soft!) giving this classic, sweet Jenny dress an edgy playful note.
The ultra-modern, and delightfully sexy long-sleeved Blythe also gets an eye-catching detail with sheer panels and an open back, creating an architectural opening on an otherwise covered gown.
Want to lose the sleeves? Gwen’s your gal. Sharing a similar back, I can see either of these gowns for today’s sophisticated, modern bride.
We could gush over just about the whole collection, but we’ll have to reserve that for a full reveal (wait until you see their bougainvillea editorial, gasp, so lush!) For now, you can take a look at the last Jenny by Jenny Yoo, Bridesmaids and Bridal collections on Bridal Musings.
