Designer Dress-Up: David’s Bridal Spring ‘10

Kellie writes her own fashion blog, Playing Dress-Up, and runs Whatshername Vintage, an Etsy shop specializing in all things vintage. Most importantly, Kellie is Bicoastal Bride's maid of honor, and is very excited to be a part of her sister’s wedding planning!

With spring just around the corner, the new ’10 lines from every designer imaginable are starting to hit the shops, and bridal collections are no exception. The ever-popular spring wedding season is just beginning, and gorgeous new gowns have finally been unveiled (pardon the pun!).

To celebrate spring, David’s Bridal has released a new collection filled with flowing, elegant gowns, short and sassy frocks, and intricately detailed dresses perfect for warm-weather weddings. No matter what your personal taste, David’s is sure to have something to suit you, with a wide range of available options encompassing every style and trend.

Here’s just a taste of what you can find in stores now at David’s, including new fashions, plus a few favorites from last year!

These three dresses are from the Galina line, my personal favorite. Inspirations for the collection include Old Hollywood, Grecian and modern trends, creating a wonderful mix of new and vintage style. Everything about the Galina gowns screams “spring,” incorporating flowy, airy silhouettes and delicate details. The short dress on the left is, in my opinion, a true standout, since the cut is very modern and fresh, and the banding and flower appliqués give it a fun twist.

The Oleg Cassini collection at David’s Bridal is certainly the most couture-influenced, making it an ideal choice for low-budget brides with high-budget taste. Many of the elegant gowns feature beading reminiscent of what you’d find in expensive designer boutiques, so you’ll feel like a princess without spending a royal fortune!

David’s Bridal’s own collection is quite impressive this season, and incorporates unique touches, such as ribbon details and lace sleeves. They really stepped up their game both this year and last, creating a wonderful group of classy, understated and sweet pieces. If you’re in search of a timeless style, this line just might be for you.

So, ladies, what do you think of David’s spring dresses, and which designers are you excited about this season?
