Dear Confashion: Looking for a Wedding Dress

One of my fab readers has sent me an e-mail asking for help to find wedding gown for her sister-in-law. She mentioned that they were hoping I'd post something about bridal gowns stating that "My sister-in-law's personal preference is a ball gown with a bow detail at the back and preferably having a low back. Please help us find a suitable gown".

So I turned to my first style-opedia and I did some extensive search on wedding gowns that graced the runways during New York's Bridal Fashion Week and Paris's Haute Couture week. It is so overwhelming to skim through the vast selection of wedding gowns! And here's an advice to Brides-to-be, remember to keep an open mind and to experiment with the idea of altering a dress to fit your liking. Most designers, if not all, can make their colored evening gowns into the most beautiful white wedding dress. My ultimate favorite look has to be Givenchy Couture, featured in the the first photo. Of course you'll be having a thicker layer on to the lower half of the dress. And look at the back detail of another Givenchy creation. Gorgeous! 

Sigh! That Azzedine Ala├»a black dress in white? Or how about this extravagant Giambattista Valli dress with a simple very short veil? For a very classic and simple gown that can we re-worn for other occasions, try Victoria Beckham (featured on the right below), maybe you'd like to add some lace and embroidery details to the neckline if this dress feels too simple. And finally, Alexander McQueen's short/long young and fresh design for someone who's edgy and not afraid to take some fashion risks.
