Is The Strapless Gown Finally Fading?

What joy! How refreshing! Finally a collection that had a variety of necklines. The designs for next season from 2Be Brides are all over the board on necklines. There are halter tops and Sabrina necklines, High necks with beading and deep plunging V’s. There are cap sleeves and long sleeves.

Then there is the beading! I spent a day at market this spring with Leanne Stoiche the wonderful woman that designed most of the beadwork for this line. She then went to the factories in China to make sure that what she envisioned was want was produced. It is beautiful and her efforts show. One of the new gowns has over 18,000 beads. If you look closely at the gown with the green beading you will see a perfectly executed claddagh at the neckline.

And then of course you know me, if there was bling to be found I would find it. Nora from Erica Koesler brought her line into town to garnish the models with veils, jewelry and headpieces. True to form, yours truly looked smashing in a borrowed pearl and Swarovski headband for last night’s dinner. Thank you Nora.

Thank you, Christine, for the 2Be comments. Our group knows how much time and effort is involved to produce the line each year. I am expecially grateful that Terri and staff took our suggestions to heart this year! We are all tired of the strapless gown, and had great choices in all price ranges as something fresh and new!

Wow! hey brides, did you read that?
The salon owners really are listen to their brides and letting the designers know what you want. Keep talking and they will keep listening.
