I first heard of Violette Tannenbaum in an article about up-and-coming designers. Although she’s been around since 2015. Tannenbaum is a french wedding dress designer. Her belief is that women can be beautiful brides and still be themselves., I feel like what she is presenting to us is the ideal that you don’t have to be stuck in the last generations image of a perfect bride. You can be free, you can be sexy, you can be fashionable, and beautiful, and still have fun.
Tannenbaum works with her brides by starting with sketches that can be modified. Through details and fittings she creates the custom dress of your dreams. Tannenbaum’s studio is located in Paris, France and all of her dresses and materials are made in France.
One of the first things I do when I learn about a new designer is go directly to their website. What I immediately noticed upon visiting Tannenbaum’s website is that she definitely caters to the modern bride! Her photos are fresh, vibrant and unique. She even captions her Instagram posts with things like, “Badass bride,” and “Super cool bride.” Both her website and Instagram give off a fun and refreshing vibe. The following images have been obtained from the designer’s Instagram, Facebook and website:
Let’s talk about Jean-Ralph Thurin! I can’t remember which magazine I first read about this designer in. When I visited his website I was super impressed by his modern, yet classy, luxury bridal collections. Thurin’s bridal shop is located in Somerville, NJ. His current collections include JRT Shimmer, JRT Evolution, HUExJRT and JRT Rouge 2018. Jean-Ralph Thurin is committed to making every bride’s dream come true. Whether you choose a wedding gown from his exclusive collection or have your dress custom-made. Check out his website and Instagram for more! @jeanralphthurin http://www.jeanralphthurin.com

Nicky Hilton got married this past summmer in an amazing Valentino gown. The dress featured a beautifully detailed lace overlay, and long train. Nicky’s long embroidered veil was perfect for her classic wedding look.
Of course, the internet was a buzz comparing Nicky Hilton’s wedding dress to Kate Middleton’s dress, as if no one else ever wore a lace overlay before. Nicky’s dress had a high neckline and longsleeves, while Kate’s dress had a v-neck. Kate Middleton’s dress was designed by Sarah Burton and it was extravagant. But, I honestly like Nicky’s dress more. Nicky’s dress was like, regal meets modesty. Very classy.
