It’s the most wonderful time of the year – ok, yes, it’s the holidays, but it’s also a time to look back at the fantastic weddings that I’ve had the privilege of featuring over the past year. I’m kicking off the retrospective with the most fabulous bridal fashion to grace these pages over the past year! It was almost impossible to narrow down all of the stunning wedding dresses worn by HWL Brides, but luckily, I didn’t have to decide! I rounded up the ten dresses that garnered the most pins, shares, and emails from brides wondering where to find their own.
This truly stunning JUSTIN ALEXANDER gown, customized by Utah boutique BRIDAL EXPRESSIONS with delicately beaded cap sleeves was by far the most inquired after dress featured on the blog! Many, many thanks to PEPPER NIX PHOTOGRAPHY for sharing this sweet couple’s classic vintage wedding!

This embellished blush MONIQUE Lhuillier gown is another one that generated a flood of emails from brides – and their mothers – trying to find ‘the one’! I hope their weddings are just as gorgeous as this sweet and relaxed beach wedding from WHYMAN STUDIOS!

MAGGIE SOTTERO is a seasoned favorite of HWL Brides, and this amazing rustic bohemian wedding from LOVE OUT LOUD is the perfect example of why! The flowing skirt was a perfect fit for the woodsy setting, while the crystal embellished sweetheart bodice added a touch of glam!

TARIK EDIZ is another designer that is quickly becoming a household name – and the incredible embellished back on this sleek gown is just Exhibit A!

MADDIE K. DOUCET PHOTOGRAPHY & DESIGN styled and photographed this amazing Americana shoot, and the vintage ruffled gown with rockabilly styling and angel wing tattoos is the perfect blend of old and new!

I love when a wedding dress perfectly captures the essence of the whole wedding- the bold Spanish lace on this gorgeous bride’s BHLDN was the most perfect representation of the old-world style of her Southern California wedding by YES, DEAR STUDIO!

Picking just one gown from this bridal styling shoot by WARMPHOTO was not an easy task, but I love how this dress marries the romance of a sweeping skirt with the high-fashion knockout factor of the open back!

The most recent gown in this round up is already stacking up to be a classic, with a ruffled blush train by MAGGIE SOTTERO that’s been causing waves in my inbox since this glamorous mountain wedding from JANINE DEANNA PHOTOGRAPHY went live!
