Of course, before sealing any bond or going through with the drums, the accordion and dancing music, a lady must pick out her wedding dress. Since we are in the modern world, it makes sense to turn to modern designers, of which Alberta Ferretti is certainly a favourite. While it would not make sense to crush the pomegranate anywhere near the incredible celestial gowns brought forth, the bride can certainly enjoy her snow white or champagne hued gown all night long. Lace, pleats, ruffles, and a whole lot of modern sheer panelling make the bride look as angelic as need be, without overdoing it at all. A long veil or a flower crown, a head wrap or any of the other bridal accessories work well with the pieces featured in the fabulous Alberta Ferretti Forever bridal spring 2015 collection that will have the ladies feeling finally like the only belle of the ball, even if for a single night.
Brides, brides, brides galore! It is wedding season at the moment and everywhere you go, every direction you look, there are honks of revelry, the gorgeous gowns sweeping about and the traditions that liven up a wedding really inspiring joy in each and every one of us. There is a tradition around me now that might seem interesting to those who are used to the more European or American style conventionality. While still in Europe, the Eastern cities hold on to their olden procedures and the day of the wedding is not just for the bride and groom, but for everyone involved! While they may no longer take days on end to celebrate, 7 days and 7 nights in traditional folklore, Armenians certainly love to incorporate a whole lot of singing and dancing. Every day for the past month already, I’ve been privy to the courtyard dances by the groom’s side, the women bringing with them baskets of goodies, of cognac and chocolates locally made, and exchanging for sweet bread baked by the bride’s family. We see the flowers and the trinkets, hear the music that resonates off the walls of the neighbourhood and head to our balconies to rejoice along with the happy couple awaiting their trip to the church in order to seal the bond that is made to last forever.
Gentle flows to the trains, ribbons fluttering in the breeze and the loose fall of gauzy chiffon are all that are needed to pull together a wedding dress that will leave him gaping throughout the ceremony. Whether you opt for the lace and chiffon Southern Belle with long sleeves and high neck or leave the back open, the arms and shoulders bare to the touch, you have every kind of dress in the Alberta Ferretti Forever bridal spring 2015 collection a bride may want. Mermaids or A-lines, columns or sheaths, long trains or ankle hugging pieces; which dress will it end up being that you say yes to come you big day? It may seem like a small detail, but this is the garment that you will remember for the rest of your life, given of course that it is a single wedding you plan during that lifetime. When you do, it appears Ferretti knows which designs are truly best for you!
