Simply chic gowns by Galina

Galina designers have comepletely won my heart  with their refined gowns that  have the ability to make a bride look effortlessly gorgeous . The Galina collection is made up of stylishly simple bridal gowns that appeal to the modern-minded, fashion conscious bride. Their gowns, lack all the fuss of traditional wedding dresses; they don't have mile long trains, poofy billowing skirts, or crystal encrusted corsets, instead they revel in their simplicity, featuring refined lines, sleeker silhouettes and the latest trends hot off the runway. Current bridal trends include, 3D floral embellishments, one shoulder gowns, and mermaid silhouettes.  Best of all, if purchased directly from Davids Bridal, some of the Galina gowns cost as little as $250! The photos below showcase a few of the delightful dresses from the Galina collection.

Megan Fox's beach wedding photos!

Simple and chic were clearly the two words Megan Fox had in mind at her beach wedding. It was a quiet and elegant affair with the entire bridal party dressed in white Armani. Mind you the entire bridal party consisted only of the bride, the groom and the groom's son!  A wedding need not be a grand affair to be memorable and classy and they clearly proved that here. I adore the contrast of the bare feet on a beach paired with an elegant floaty gown, complete with train and traditional bouquet. Brides who incorporate unexpected ideas in their weddings enter my bridal hall of fame.

Congratulations to the new couple.
