I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s ever been asked the question, “If you could have one person design your wedding dress, who would it be?”. My answer includes a few people – the first one being Oscar de la Renta.

So, when bridal fashion week rolls around, you know I’m always keeping my eye out for what my favorite designers are showing on the runways. But, I couldn’t have been more shocked (and pleasantly surprised) to see Mr. de la Renta include an eyelet bikini wedding frock amongst princess worthy gowns during his show…

I’m sure there will be a plethora of opinions on the subject, but I have to say, for a hot tropical wedding, I’m willing to be bet there are brides out there who would be much more comfortable walking down the aisle in this ensemble versus a heavy dress…

    Oh, Oscar, he always keeps things so fresh. I love the eyelet ensemble for the beach wedding, or the after party, so stunning, with a classic edge. The garlands and simple garden bouquets are equally refreshing. Beautiful finds Cassandra.
