Fashion Friday: Vera Wang Bridal A/W 2013

Posted by Janna Simpao

Vera Wang always manages to find some form of reinvention to the trend of layered fabric manipulation (which by the way she pioneered around three years ago). Just when you think you’ve seen it all, she comes up with a collection that mixes a lot of soft elements with a subtle hint of structure and edge. A modern collection designed to enchant the heart of today’s hopeless romantic. Oh yes, we love Vera forever!

Effortless Beauty

Posted by Rachelle Que


Hello, lovelies! It’s the beginning of another week and let’s start it off with a dose of romance and prettiness. Benjie Tiongco gives us a selection that captures beauty in its best form–natural and unassuming. I love the treatment of the photos wherein there seems to be almost no post treatment, but only lighting that sets off a natural glow. The subjects are positively luminous and the colors vibrant!

Oliver and Rosette’s engagement shoot is a great study in chic simplicity. The styling is basic and it works. I find it so refreshing that it’s not too contrived, and the couple wears clothes that they would actually wear on a regular day–or a formal evening affair.

It’s a wonderful play between white, black, and stripes in this collection. Scroll down and get started with your daily fix of romance and style!

Fashion Friday: Galia Lahav Bridal 2012

Posted by Janna Simpao

We’re screaming fab in this Fashion Friday feature. Galia Lahav, an Israel-based designer is all about luxurious design and dreamy details. Her aesthetic boasts of exquisite materials and amazing quality that will back it up. I am walking on cloud nine just by looking at these eye candy couture. (Oh, to wear one of these! Sigh…) A rainy morning + a cup of good coffee + to-die-for wedding gowns = an awesome Friday indeed!

Fashion Friday: Elie Saab Spring 2013

Posted by Janna Simpao

Warning: Please remind yourself to breathe as you go through this post. These dresses are so heavenly that if I were to see them in person, I would probably faint. We can’t deny that Elie Saab is absolutely one of those people who’s way up there in our dream designer category right? So go ahead, swoon… cause it’s totally expected!

Fashion Friday: Jenny Packham A/W 2013

Posted by Janna Simpao

If you’re thinking about ending the week without our Fashion Friday, you must seriously reconsider. The drop dead divine dresses that you are about to lay your eyes on have enough enchanting elements to set us up for a good ever after. What I particularly love about Jenny Packham is her ability to make an understated-cut dress look lusciously luxurious. Now who wouldn’t feel like a billion bucks in these beauties?

Fashion Friday: Reem Acra Autumn/Winter 2013

Posted by Janna Simpao

I just love capping the week with dresses that make my heart skip a beat. Ever since I started adding Fashion Friday as a regular portion of Bride and Breakfast, it has never failed to make me see how bridal gowns get prettier by the year. Reem Acra has certainly been one of our favorites here because her designs are simply divine. With gorgeousness like this, our day is as romantic as it can be.

Hippie Heaven

Posted by Janna Simpao

One thing I totally love is an outdoor photo shoot. There’s just something about the sunlight and a bunch of greenery that make pictures extra romantic. Starkey and May’s hippie engagement shoot is hippie heaven. Honestly, the tricky thing with engagement shoots is really for the couple to connect and be the characters they wear. These two perfectly became the starstruck lovers in this enchanted setting, so yes, we love love love it! This set certainly exuded the surreal vibe that makes it totally a-ok in our book.

The Dashing and Divine

Posted by Janna Simpao

I see so many beautiful weddings on a daily basis, but if there was one wedding that is totally in my dream wedding look book this would be it! Again Nelwin Uy made sure the best of this day was captured on film. Howard and Lada’s wedding shouts exquisite taste and elegance. From the soft color palette  to the fresh and clean vibe, I can not help but gush over how pretty, I mean REALLY PRETTY this affair is. C’mon, you’ve got to agree with me when I say this is hands down one of the most romantic fetes you have ever laid your eyes on. A dashingly beautiful couple, paired with those glittering bridemaid dresses and that perfect reception decor makes every bit fabulously timeless.

Fashion Friday: Zac Posen Spring Summer 2012

Posted by Janna Simpao

A few months back we featured the drop-dead-stunning video of Coco Rocha’s wedding. And if you notice, her dress is fa-fa-fabulous. That piece of art was designed by none other than Zac Posen.

Wondering why I brought that up? Because we have Zac Posen‘s Spring Summer 2012 collect for Fashion Friday! I love his modern touch and innovative style. He may not be your typical bridal couturier, but then again, we will always have the brides who love the not-so-typical style. Accessorizing tip: whether you are a bride, a bridesmaid or a guest to a wedding, chandelier earrings will add that regal flair to your outfit. Take a look at the amazing gowns and be inspired!
