What's Hot In Bridal For 2012

We just got back from Fall Bridal Market in Chicago and are totally inspired by what we saw. The fashion shows were gorgeous and we got a peak into what you will be seeing for Spring 2012. So all you Brides that have yet to find the perfect dress take note of what you will soon have to pick from!

The corset bodice is making a huge comeback and it's coming back with more attitude than ever. Sparkles and jewels adorn these tops and if you're really feeling brave the modesty panel can be removed to reveal a top that is sheer!

Volumes and volumes of fabrics adorned the skirts on the runway and we loved seeing the beautiful movement as the models strutted down the runway. This was a trend that we saw in 2011 but it is going to be extremely strong for 2012.

Belts and hotter than ever and the options seem to be endless. We purchased belts that were black, green, ivory with huge flowers, and rhinestones that will personalize the dress that you fall in love with. Besides being a great trend, belts cinch in the waist and show off your hour glass figure!

Fit N Flares and going to be going strong again into 2012 but their done differently than before. Textures are being added to make them more current and modern. And we saw beautiful Fit N Flares with soft laces and gorgeous bead work. My thought as I saw these come down the runway was- you couldn't be more feminine and Hollywood glam in a dress like that!

We saw some color being added to Bridal gowns. Black was hot but even more so a soft pink. If your not brave enough for an all color dress you can opt to have some accents in colors such as a belt or jewelry.

We had a blast at Fall Bridal Market in Chicago and can't wait until the shipments come in and you can see them for yourself. You will not be disappointed!!

Amelishan Wedding - Amber & Nick

If you love a unique wedding you'll love pouring over the photos of Amelishan's Real Wedding for Amber and Nick. In fact, Amber is the AM of Amelishan! So what kind of wedding do you plan when you are a designer yourself and have known the wedding industry since you were a child?
A wedding unique to your taste and ideas, and shows just who you are as an individual.

The Bridesmaids dresses all got to choose an Ivory dress of their choice. Yes, that's me to the left of Amber! She's my cousin and best friend! I chose a dress by Bill Levkoff as well as 2 of the other bridesmaids. Amber's dress is an Allure, that she got at Amelishan of course, and she put her own spin on it with the leather belt and customizing the shoulder accent.

The ceremony was in a rose garden in Kansas City. The day was beautiful and the sun came out just at the right time since it had been storming all morning. The reception was held at this great little restaurant that already had a great decor and personality.
Amber and I collected porcelain animals that she painted white to put on all of the tables. And made a great head table decoration of branches and origami birds.
Dinner was petite hamburgers with homemade french fries. Everyone devoured them!

The details were amazing. From the earrings she designed for the Bridesmaids to the songs that her Dad sang to her at the ceremony and dance. Everyone had a blast and didn't want the night to end. And that's what every Bride hopes for!

Amber and Nick's photography was done by Elizabeth the owner of Atelier Photography. Call 414-840-7328 to get more info about booking her or visit us at Amelishan to pick up her card and look through her albums.
