Wow. We are still catching up on sleep, work and trying to get our minds right from all the amazingness that we saw last week at New York bridal fashion week but we just can’t seem to shake it. New York in itself, is a one of a kind city. Full of dreams, lights, and people and for us, we attend for all of that, and of course, for the dresses.
Year 3 for BTS
This year, marks our third year of attending shows, meeting designers, and drooling over elegance at its finest. We had a jam packed weekend of Runway shows and private viewings of our most favorite designers and some we never even knew before. None the less, it was an experience we will never forget and always remember.Not to mention, we stayed at one of our favorite hotels, Dream Downtown, and had some amazing food experiences as well. (Alex and Storm love food, by the way).
This season was definitely a season of sophistication and bringing back tradition. We saw a lot of ball gowns and a lot of bows. Berta, took the conservative route and definitely scaled back on the sexy sheer look. Pnina, while typically known for her crystals and bling, brought lace, satin and bows to the show. THE BOWS! Oh how obsessed we are with the bows. Check out some of our favorite looks that we captured right from the runway. We are in love!

One designer that hit our photo albums this weekend that completely blew us away was Tel Aviv designers, Yael Eisenberg and Heli Kalkstein, also known as Eisen Stein. These two met each other in design school and after a short 4 month design process, had created their first bridal line in 2011.
To say their dresses are gorgeous is simply an understatement. The vision the pair has, coupled with the most high quality materials of silk, lace, beading and Swarovski crystals really had our jaws drop. One dress, was a last minute addition that took only days to produce. This dress happened to be our teams favorite. The intricacy and detail was out of this world and oh my, it was a stunner.

Any-who! To say our expectations were met, is an understatement. We had the best time, in the best city doing the best things. Wanna hear more or see more from our experience, head over to our Instagram page and check out our highlights!!
BTS is here to break down what’s trending in the world of weddings! Today we’re going to talk about bridal gowns. Specifically, high and low.
Brides who are dress shopping, take some notes on what we’re about to say: HIGH AND LOW WEDDING GOWNS ARE TRENDING. And we are so absolutely here for the look. Let’s talk about why.
Let’s start with a high low gown being your best second dress option. By reception time you’ll have had a drink or two in your system. So it’s only right that your outfit is business in the back and party in the front. With a high low gown, you have room to dance around and really enjoy the wedding reception.
The days of the detatcheable skirt are over. Well, maybe not all the way. But if you’re tired of seeing the detachable skirt, try a high low gown. Take a look at some of our high low favs, and let us know which you’d choose for your big day.

From a killer party playlist to a poppin’ highlight, Rihanna has really taken care of some important essentials for females! The former singer has been WOW-ing us with her ability to really take our needs into consideration when it comes to all things beauty and fashion and man-oh-man has she proved to us that she’s got our back!
She broke makeup industry standards in 2017 when she came out with 40 foundation shades–something that was literally unheard of (and hello, can you say PERFECT wedding day foundation?) and then clapped back at us when she launched her size inclusive lingerie line, Savage X Fenty.
Unsurprisingly, both brands have been completely slaying ever since. With the two-year anniversary of Fenty Beauty coming up right alongside the one-year anniversary of Savage x Fenty, we think it’s safe to say that this is the year of Queen Rih – and we’re LIVING for it!
Rihanna decided to drop a little surprise on us just in time for the thriving lingerie brand’s one-year anniversary (and your summer wedding): Savage X Fenty Bridal Box! Um, can we get a “HELL YEA”?! This adorable little accessory box comes with allllllll the things RiRi thinks you’ll need to become a savage in the sheets, on your first night as a Mrs (sorry, mom!). It includes white lace heart-shaped pasties, a garter and ruffled handcuffs for $44 (or $22 with a VIP membership). Your hubby can thank us later!
Doesn’t that just look like a fun night?! Although the box only comes with fun additions for your outfit, we’re sure you’re going to love the rest of the lingerie! Not only does this brand range from 32A-46DDD but there’s a great selection of styles. Need the perfect strapless bra for your wedding day? She’s got one. Want something sexy for your wedding night? There’s plenty to choose from. We grabbed a few of our favorite styles to get you excited about pairing with your Bridal Box, but make sure your fiance isn’t around! We don’t want to spoil any wedding night surprises!

Metallic Lace Teddy in Iced
Sheer Underwire Ruffle Bra and Low Rise Open Bikini in Dusty Peach
Satin And Lace Bodysuit in Cherry Blossom
We told you there was some sexy stuff in here! We feel like Savage X Fenty really embodies an affordable, practical yet FUN approach on pieces that are so intimate and special to us! There’s nothing like feeling comfortable under my umbrella-ella-ella-eh…. Ahem, we mean… underneath it all. 😉
By now, we can pretty much all agree that the boho bridal trends have dominated the market for quite some time now. The effortless yet romantic feel has definitely had its time to shine, so if you’re looking to change things up with something a little unexpected, then we’ve got just the right ‘do for you!
With 90s fashion making such a strong comeback, it only makes sense that it trickles down into our current hair and makeup trends. We all remember the tight twists, braids and sleek ponytails that our mothers tortured us with (the butterfly clips made the pain worth it), but we definitely won’t take it THAT far on your wedding day! Although we’re throwing it back and living for the nostalgia of our childhood, we’re going to give you a modern bride take on some oldie but goodies that are worth considering. Take a look…
Keepin It Simple
Buns were EVERYTHING in the 90s. A lot of the times there were multiple (think Gwen Stefani in the early No Doubt days). We’re going to keep it simple with just one for a sleek yet untamed top knot! Add an embellished hairpiece to take it up a notch if your wedding is a tad more formal
Tight ringlets were all we knew before beach waves took over. Step away from the flat iron and show off your gorgeous tendrils with a HIGH pony and cascading curls. There’s nothing like being able to embrace your natural beauty and being true to yourself on your big day!
The Bubble Pony
What a cute way to incorporate your playful personality, right?! Keep it modern and sleek, pull out some wispies for a less structured look or add some sparkle with something dreamy like these gorgeous star and pearl pins.
How’d you like our little walk down memory lane? We told you it would bring back some memories (we promise we’d never suggest something that you’d cringe over in your wedding photos in 10-20 years)! We hope this inspires you to take a step away from the low and messy styles we’ve got accustomed to and help start a new wave of bridal trends! What do you think about our beloved 90s fashion making a full comeback? Let us know below!
Calling all jet setter brides with a passion for modern spaces, a healthy lifestyle, and treating yourself. It’s Alex here from BTS and I’m about to give you the inside scoop on our absolutely magical experience at the Viceroy Los Cabos. Which, by the way, felt like a futuristic water world.
The moment you step foot on this ethereal architectural masterpiece, you know you’re in for VIP treatment. Girl, you know you deserve only the best! The Viceroy is anything but basic. The entire staff was there to welcome us and even greeted us by name! That’s major points in our book for having studied their clients.
After a deliciously refreshing mocktail upon our arrival, we made our way to our room. The bellman relieved us of our luggage and escorted us to our rooms. Totally normal, I know, but when I made my way inside my room my jaw just dropped. In the room, was a picture of my daughter, Penelope, as well as a stuffed animal for her.
There was also a meat and cheese board, and a Viceroy tote bag accompanied by a note from Martin, the hotel’s general manager. The check-in was, clearly, an experience of its own.
To say we were impressed is an understatement. The bride was treated like the total queen she is! Pictures of her and her fiancé, as well as her engagement video, were playing upon her arrival. It was such a personalized experience we’re ecstatic she got to be a part of.
After we were all settled in, we went on a tour where we were offered drinks including shaved ice and cotton candy! By dinner time, we were dying of curiosity to see what kind of special experience we would be treated to considering the check-in process was so attentive! Food by itself is an adventure for your taste buds but the Viceroy took it to a whole other level. We had a progressive dinner where basically we started in one restaurant, moved to another for the main course, and finished with an in-room dessert experience with a mini cake. Let’s be honest ladies, who doesn’t want to run off and eat cake in bed once the staff is gone?
When you travel often, you know how hard it can be to make all the places you stay at feel “homey.” Fortunately, the Viceroy staff made for such a welcoming experience throughout the stay. It absolutely knocked our socks off! In all of our time experiencing venue tours, we never had a team go above and beyond like this. It made us even more excited to go to other Viceroy properties. Take a look at these photos and tell us, what do you look for in the perfect venue?
Want to show some skin on your big day? We’ve been waiting for that special moment a bride decides to be a little daring on her big day! We’re seeing designers incorporate a sheer look into their designs over the last two to three years. This trend isn’t dying down anytime soon. This year, however, it seems as if designers are incorporating that sheer element more and more and in very non-traditional ways. We’re here for it!
Check out some of our favorite designers incorporating this trend in their latest wedding gowns.
It’s impossible to not feel like a goddess in Julie Vino’s Romanzo collection. Are you usually the first one on the dance floor and not afraid to flaunt it? If so, this ethereal gown will have you feeling out of this world with its lengthy tulle train and form-fitting rhinestone covered shorts and top below it. This dress paired with Louboutin’s Follie Strass Pumps will have you looking and feeling fierce!
Take on this sultry look with Adi Shlomo’s collection. This gown is a perfect match for you if you want a bold look with a soft element to it. If you want to avoid the hassle of getting in and out of multiple dresses on your big day, the versatility of this collection is a match made in heaven for you. Its floral textures and detachable features–detachable sleeves and changeable skirts– are a consistent theme throughout. Add the ultimate wow factor to this look with a smokey eye!
If wearing a more conservative gown is a priority for you, this long-sleeved gown with a deep v-neck will make you feel like a supermodel. Its bow, embroidered floral elements, and long tulle train will complement your figure. This dress would pair best with a natural look, complimentary highlight, nude lip, and pearl earrings.
For the bride that wants a dress that is literally made for her, Cleo + Clementine can make your “gown dreams” come true. They’re like the fairy godmother in Cinderella that will have you feeling all sorts of magical on your special day. Explore their Etsy shop here and add some of your favorite looks to your Pinterest boards.
Are you a lover of Italian-inspired fashion and want something totally untraditional? This long-sleeved dress, also available sleeveless FYI, is an elegant expression of the beauty and golden elegance of a region full of romance. Designed with the modern bride in mind, this embellished piece will have you making a statement on your big day. Complete the look with your hair in a fishtail braid.
Perfect for the fashion-forward bride craving a dramatically glamorous look. The Donna gown will have everyone swooning over you. This gown’s sheer look paired with glistening embellishments and peek-a-boo leg slit is absolutely to die for. Pair it with a sleek bun to finish the look.
Covering up doesn’t mean you can’t look and feel stunning! Known for its sweet and sexy cuts, the GALA line is Galia Lahav’s made-to-order bridal line. Remember we shared this line with you two years ago at New York Bridal Fashion Week? You’ll look and feel like absolute perfection with a gown that’s not just beautiful and made from quality materials but also comfortable. Complete the look with a French braid and golden bronze makeup with a lip stain for a romantic vibe.
Have a thing for Victorian style? Designed to hug you in all the right places, the Thelma gown is a Victorian-style dress with sheer paneling, tulle sleeves, and a mermaid skirt with a detachable bustle train making it nearly effortless to go from the ceremony to the dance floor. It’s totally inevitable to look and feel like royalty in this gown. We know you’re dreaming about pairing it with a crown so go ahead and go for it! A softly embellished crown with floral motifs and crystals would make for a super dreamy display of romanticism.
Calling all avant-garde brides to be! This long ruffle high-neck stretch silk gown has lace inserts giving you a sexy element of surprise. It’s a look that’s slightly conservative, very much elegant, and romantic. Style it with a bold pearl headband and an equally bold lip color to really make a statement.
A more daring look from Inbal Dror’s Fall 2019 collection created for the bride that isn’t scared to show some skin. The beaded tulle sheath wedding dress has a high neckline, puff sleeves, and is sexily bold without ever sacrificing your elegance. Top off this look with bronze smokey eyes and a nude matte lip color.
Every bride deserves to feel like a million bucks on her wedding day and we’re sure you’ll feel like just that in these gorgeous sheer gowns. Which of all these sheer gowns did you like best? Comment below and let us know!
Weddings are huge. It’s no wonder much thought goes into the selection of attire not only for the bride and groom but for their guests too. Even though many weddings have a dress code or suggested attire listed on their wedding website or invitation. There are some that don’t.
If the wedding you’re attending does have guidelines for attire, those rules or “suggestions” (we say suggestions in quotes because the term suggested attire is a polite way of saying, “we want you to wear this.”)will easily narrow down your attire selections. In case there is no dress code or suggested attire, we’ve compiled a list of clothing items what will always work, won’t work, and what we suggest:
What will always work:
A long gown or dress
Trendy pants suit
What won’t work
Anything too casual, i.e., summer dress, sandals, and jeans
Anything white, off-white, cream, ivory, tan, sand, light silver, sequin, or the color the wedding dress could be.
Good colors to wear
Things to avoid
Unless there is a color scheme or theme as part of the dress code, try to avoid the wedding colors. Here’s why. You don’t want to blend in with the bridesmaids, and even worse, potentially purchase a dress similar to what the bridesmaids are wearing.
You’re probably thinking, “How in the world am I supposed to know what the wedding colors are?” You can figure out what they might be based on the invitation. In the meantime, we’ve compiled a list of attire that would be perfect for a wedding.
Wedding shoes are up there on the list of items most photographed on wedding day. This is why you’ll want your shoe choice to be on point. These photos will last forever, and if you’re anything like us, you’ll want to look back on these photos when you’re old and grey and think, “wow, I was so fashionable!” We have a while before you get to that point so in the meantime, here are a couple of things to consider before buying your shoes, like purchasing your dress and knowing your wedding venue.
Your dress and wedding venue are important when it comes to picking out your wedding day shoe because they dictate, in some ways, what restrictions, if any, you’ll face. For example, walking down a sandy beach is pretty hard to do in heels. Right? As it relates to your dress, you’ll want your shoes to match in every way: style, color and detail. Without knowing what the vibe of your dress is, how will you know what vibe your shoe should be?
With the many options, our brides are often overwhelmed, so we’ve broken down some of our favorites for you. We even split the shoes up into three categories based on the bride’s interests, classic, traditional and modern to fit every bride. Take a look at these shoes and let us know which is your favorite.
Wedding planning may be overwhelming and let’s be real maybe even a bit complicated. We’ve made at least one aspect of wedding planning a bit easier. Let us know if you’ll be going with any of these options, we’d love to hear from you! And don’t forget, if you need help with bridal styling, email us at email@example.com.

Ever wonder what’s going through the groom’s head when he’s planning to propose? Us too! Whenever we get the opportunity to chat with our grooms, we try to pry all the deets out of him. This is exactly why we wanted someone like Gabriel as a guest on our podcast, so he can fill all of us girls in on the behind the scenes of proposing.
Gabriel and his now wife, Jessi Malay are famous YouTube vloggers that we’re absolutely obsessed with. You can find their channelhere and their proposal video here. Brace yourselves, because once you begin watching, it’s hard to stop!
But before we get to our recap of how Gabriel proposed, be sure to follow us on Instagram, subscribe to our channel, and show us some love in the iTunes reviews.
Gabriel and Jessi Malay worked together in the music industry. Jessi Malay was formerly part of a girl group, No Secrets, and Gabriel worked in digital marketing. That’s how they crossed paths. Gabriel and Jessi have the classic love story every girl dreams of. You know, the ‘we were friends first‘ story. We won’t totally give it away here, but listen in on our episode to here where it all started.
