The perfect wedding dress for each body type

By |November 18th, 2013|

Ballgown, mermaid, trumpet, A-line, empire, natural waist, dropped waist… there are so many shapes and forms when it comes to wedding dresses, but not necessarily every cut flatters every figure.

Here are a few tips from us for finding the right dress for you body type.

If you are pear shaped

If you have big hips or a pear shaped body, you could either look for a classic A-line silhouette or a natural waistline that flows away from the hips. But if you want to emphasize on your curves, you could also choose a mermaid gown.

Our pick:

 
A natural waistline and a ruffled skirt to draw attention away from the hips:  Style 77956
If you want to highlight your hips, this beaded mermaid gown is a great choice:  Style CT105.
 

If you are petite

A strapless mermaid or trumpet gown is perfect for petites. You can also go for a style with a waistline above the natural waist, since it will make you appear longer.

Avoid dropped waist or big ballgowns;  you don’t want to disappear in your dress.

Our pick:
A strapless or one-shoulder mermaid gown is a great option for a petite girl: Style AK99
This high waistline will make a short body appear taller: Style EK992
 

If you are plus sized

Diagonal pleads along the waist have a slimming effect are a great choice for curvier bodies. Classic A-lines or ballgowns are also a good option.

Our pick:
Classic A-line with a sweetheart neckline and slimming pleads: Style EK977
A great ballgown with lace details and illusion neckline: Style EK967
If you are busty

Choose a V- or neckline or halter gown to show some cleavage. Don’t cover your chest, it will make you look even bustier.
A great option for bigger busts: Style AK80
 

If you are small chested

A sweetheart neckline […]

An extravagant engagement and a secret wedding

By |October 24th, 2013|

Wow, there’s been big celebrity wedding news this week!

The biggest news, without doubt: Kim Kardashian is going to be a bride once again. What a proposal by Kanye! He went all out, renting a baseball stadium and hiring an 50-man orchestra.

 

And they sure weren’t shy about sharing their news: Kim tweeted a picture of her 15 karat engagement ring.

With an engagement this big, we are wondering how big the wedding will be. And of course, how her dress(es) will be like.

 

In other celebrity news: Kelly Clarkson said I do over the weekend. She was for sure more private than Kim and Kanye; it was a secret wedding and the world only found out on Monday, when she tweeted a picture of her wedding. She looked gorgeous in her long sleeve lace gown.

She recently shared the cutest video of her wedding. So romantic! And what a perfect location!

Keeping the Bride Stress Free

By |October 18th, 2013|

This article was written by our guest blogger Morgan Gray. She is the maid of honor at her sister’s upcoming wedding and is giving very helpful advise on how to lower the stress lever of a bride-to be.
By Morgan Gray
Weddings are beautiful days, and no matter how much planning goes on, there is sure to be stress that comes with the event for the bride, the groom, the maid of honor, the best man – you name it. But if you’re the maid of honor, it’s your job to help keep the bride cool, calm, and collected. The main thing I learned from my first wedding party experience: be prepared. Here’s some advice to help keep the bride relaxed and as stress free as you can.

Before the Wedding Day

Make sure the bride gets to relax! After all, the bride has a lot that she’s going to be doing: invitations, figuring out the caterer, her dress, the venue – the list is endless. That’s where a maid of honor comes in, to help however she is needed. What I recommend is setting up a coffee or lunch date where the two of you will meet. Whether that is weekly, bi-weekly, or every month, it helps to have some scheduled time to chat and for the bride to talk with her best friend. Yes, that may turn into venting time, but that can also help the two of you figure out problem areas and what you can do to help.

 

I know that I ended up scheduling a lot of what the bridesmaids did, and a lot to do with when people were coming in and where they would stay. If the reception hall doesn’t have a hotel […]

Keep it simple or make a statement?

By |September 18th, 2013|

Choosing your perfect wedding dress is no easy task. So many styles,  so many fabrics, so many beautiful gowns. Where to begin?

Are you the kind of bride who knows exactly how her dress will look like since the age of 7, or do you have no idea whatsoever?

Are you looking for a classic, elegant look? Do want to keep it clean and simple? Or do you want to make a fashion statement and wear a gown that nobody will ever forget?

To answer these questions, you have to keep in mind that what’s most important is that you feel comfortable in your dress and that you feel like yourself. If you usually dress simple, you will probably feel uncomfortable and “off” wearing a statement piece.

If your friends are used to seeing you in the most fashionable clothes, they will probably expect you to wear something extravagant at your wedding.

You also need to know how to accessorize. With a simple gown, you can either choose minimalistic accessories, but you could also combine your dress with a statement piece of jewelry, headpiece or add an interesting belt.

If you choose a more elaborated dress, the accessories you choose should not be a distraction from the dress.

Here a a few choices for each look.

If you want to keep it simple:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 Bouquet Style #AK97: A strapless organza gown with a sweetheart neckline. If you find it too simple, you can add a beaded or colored belt to it.
 

Style EK996. An organza drop waist gown, with a sweetheart neckline. You can also add a belt or this little lace bolero jacket.
This champagne satin gown is simple and so elegant, and should be combined with minimal accessories. Also available in white or ivory

All eyes will be on your back!

By |August 29th, 2013|

It is one the most important moments of your life, and all eyes will be on you. (Maybe also on your groom, but mostly on you). You have invested so much time in looking just perfect for this special day; your hair, your make-up, your shoes, your bouquet and, most important: your dress!

So all eyes will be on you on your wedding day, but have you thought that for a good part of the ceremony, those eyes will be on your back?

That’s why the back of a wedding is just as important as the front. Here are few EddyK 2014 gowns with stunning and original backs. Whether you choose a classic, sexy or vintage look, for sure, nobody will be able to keep their eyes off you in any of those!

 

 

What do you think of these beautiful gowns? Which one is your favorite?

Eddy K 2014: Romantic and Feminine

By |June 19th, 2013|

This weekend, Eddy K will launch its 2014 collections during a three-day fashion event held in Milan, Italy, and the preparations are on its way!

Many of you might have already seen a little preview with the pictures and videos that we have been posting. But that is only a fraction of what will be on the runway this year.

Eddy K’ s signature romantic look is strongly present in this upcoming season, but there are also many innovations.  The gowns seem less heavy because of the use of soft tulle and organza, which give he gowns a much lighter and fresher look than in previous years.

Also big in 2014 are the elegant lace dresses from the ADK collection, whose designs are homage to the feminine silhouette.

One of the highlights will be the launch of a brand new collection: Couture. This exclusive collection uses the finest materials like silk and silky organza, combined with elaborated details of appliqués and Swarovski Crystals.

In the next days we will be updating you with pictures from the fashion show. Stay tuned!

The bride and her horse

By |June 13th, 2013|

We love it when brides share their wedding pictures with us, wearing their Eddy K gown.

Here are some pictures that Andrea Thomas from the UK sent us. They are just stunning. It is her horse on the picture, and she wrote to us: “My horse must have stood on my dress a 100 times while I was leading him and while I was galloping along the beach, but after a good wash nobody believed how good it still looked.”

Thank you, Andrea, for sharing these beautiful pictures!

We invite all Eddy K brides to share their pictures with us, and we will be happy to feature them on this blog!

Do’s and Don’ts when buying your wedding dress

By |April 5th, 2013|

Planning your wedding is fun, but it can also be very stressful. Whether you are having a big princess wedding or a small ceremony with only your closest family and friends, there are many steps involved, and no matter how simple or extravagant the wedding, you want it to be perfect.

You and your dress will be the center of attention on your wedding day and therefore the most important element (beside your groom).  Here are few tips we want to share with you when it comes to buying your dream dress:

Do research. See what’s out there to get an idea. There are many sources to look at wedding dresses. Magazines are perhaps the most traditional source, but you can spend hours on the Internet to look at dresses. Pinterest, instagram or wedding blogs are a great way to get inspired.

Do start shopping early!  It’s never too early to start looking for your dream dress, but it might get too late.  Boutiques usually only carry  one size of a particular style for brides to try on, so you will have to order your own dress in your size. Keep in mind that it takes between 4 and 5 months for a wedding dress to be delivered. So start at least 6 months before your wedding, in order to avoid paying for rush delivery.

Don’t expect the same service everywhere. Bridal Boutiques are the best place to shop for your dress. They give you an appointment and the consultants will take the time to personally assist you. You probably won’t get that same service at discount stores or chains.

Don’t be unrealistic. Prices for wedding dresses vary a lot. […]
