Fall Bouquets

Brides are experimenting with so many colors and textures when it comes to their weddings! The color trend is especially prevalent in their flower choices. By mixing different types of flowers, colors, and greeneries brides can add unique depth to their arrangements and bouquets. This season we wanted to showcase some of our favorite fall bouquets from some of our favorite local florists.

Liancarlo Fall 2015- Trunk Show Favorites

With our Liancarlo trunk show starting this week we thought it would be fun to highlight our favorite gowns from the fall 2015 collection. Bridal market was just a few days ago; we feel so privileged to be Liancarlo’s first trunk show of the season! The fall 2015 collection was all about texture and versatility. One of our featured gowns can switch from full length to cocktail just by slipping off the underskirt. Another gown we loved played with blush, gold, and cream tones in its delicate embroidery.

Our trunk show will be running October 16th-18th by appointment only, for availability please call 202 965-4696 or email info@carinesbridal.com… enjoy!

Bridal Market Fall 2015- Market Day 4

On our last day of bridal market we visited Angel Sanchez, Carolina Herrera, and Liancarlo. Each designer is known for a different aesthetic and design style, however we saw definite trends collectively in their presentations. Modern structure, gold tones, and embroidered illusion necklines were prevalent throughout our last day in NYC…

Bridal Market Fall 2015- Day 3

Today we visited two of our designers on our bridal market tour and each one offered us a little something different. Both Marchesa and Jenny Lee went back to their basics, Marchesa revamped their take on embroidery and draping while Jenny Lee redefined her take on structure. Marchesa featured beautifully embroidered Chantilly lace and Jenny Lee played with the idea of exposed boning and applique details…

Real Bride: McKenzie Walsh

We are absolutely thrilled for our bride McKenzie, and her husband Alex, who were married on May 17, 2014 at the Cathedral of St. Matthew in Washington D.C. The couple celebrated their reception at the Ritz Carlton D.C. with elegant touches coordinated by their planner, Blair Peterson of SOCO Events. McKenzie wore a Monique Lhuillier tulle skirt paired with an embroidered bolero for her ceremony before changing into a hand beaded corset for her reception, creating a truly custom look. McKenzie’s accessories included a custom veil with a hair comb by Siman Tu and earrings from Paris by Debra Moreland.
