Romantic, feminine and oh-so-pretty – prepare to fall hard for these gorgeous wedding dresses.
After announcing a partnership with local wedding dress designer Alyssa Kristin Bridal, Chicago bridal salon, Mignonette Bridal have released a Spring 2014 lookbook that's brimming with beautiful gowns.
Pairing Mignonette Bridal's own dresses, with Alyssa Kristin's inaugural collection, these gowns are both sweet and sexy, with soft textures, pink hues and an abundance of tulle, sitting alongside backless designs, plunging sweetheart necklines and figure-hugging silhouettes.
Mignonette Bridal is a famed – and very pretty – Lake View neighbourhood bridal salon, where owner, Kpoene’ Kofi-Nicklin, creates stunning custom-made dresses for discerning Chicago brides, alongside a dreamy offering of collections from carefully selected designers.
It's difficult to fathom that this is Alyssa Kristin Bridal's debut collection, with dresses that are so utterly elegant and glamorous.
After writing on her bucket list, aged 13, that she would sew her own wedding dress, Alyssa's first ever gown was the Alessandra (that strapless, sweetheart, mermaid beauty below) which she created for her own wedding last summer. How sweet!
Obsessed with designing from a young age, she grew up learning her craft from the upholstery seamstresses in her family's furniture store.
And now she boasts her very own collection with Mignonette Bridal, and we are swooning…
Aren't they just the most fun and romantic dresses? I adore that halter-neck on the last one, and the gown with the blush sequin detail is just so pretty.
Anybody else considering a road trip to Chicago?
