I love this very stylish Oscar de la Renta gown, the asymmetrical line creates interest and it looks very modern. I created this inspiration board to showcase the bride’s look for the day. It would be a nice look for a “loft” wedding. Enjoy!
This Carolina Herrera Spring 2010 gown is the reason I returned to blogging. I’ve been wrestling with the idea for a while but once I saw this gown I fell in love and I knew I had to share it. The contrast of the black flowers against the ivory fabric makes a bold statement and along with the A-line silhouette it is very forgiving to any figure. As an Encore Bride, this time around I would definitely wear this gown proudly. As I am committed to supporting the handmade industry I created an inspiration board showcasing many beautiful items from Etsy.com. Enjoy!

Encore: “a second achievement especially that surpasses the first”-Merriam Webster Dictionary
The Encore Bride is blog about wedding planning with the twist, we have been-there-done-that before. At this stage of our lives we have found true love and are looking forward to celebrating it with those that are very dear to us. This time around our wedding celebration will reflect our style and personality even if it does not follow the industry standards. I look forward to sharing fabulous ideas, inspiration and tips that will help us along the way.
Besides wedding planning I am also in the process of launching a girl’s special occasion apparel line, I hope I can also share some of the ups and downs of that process, I look forward to hearing from you!
