Keep it simple or make a statement?

By |settembre 18th, 2013|Categories: Blog posts, Design, Photography, Style, Tips|

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 [...]

Eddy K 2014: Romantic and Feminine

By |giugno 19th, 2013|Categories: Blog posts, Design, News, Photography, Style|

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

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 |aprile 5th, 2013|Categories: Blog posts, Brides, Design, News, Photography, Style, Tips|

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. The Bridal Boutique in Edmonton, one of Eddy K's premium retailers. Don't be unrealistic. Prices [...]

The White Wedding Dress: How it all started / L’abito da sposa bianco: Ecco la sua nascita

By |marzo 27th, 2013|Categories: Blog posts, Brides, Design, News, Photography, Style, Tips|

Most brides will opt for a white wedding dress to get married in. Whether if she chooses a  traditional catholic ceremony or a civil union, or even if it's a second o third marriage, a dress in a white shade is by far the most common color. But do you know when and how this all started? You might think that this tradition goes back  many centuries. This is only partially true. Many people also assume and that white symbolizes purity and virginity, but that was not the original intention. It was the marriage of Queen Victoria to her cousin Albert of Saxe- Coburg in 1840 that really influenced the tradition of marrying in white. Long before that, white was a popular color to get married in among the higher classes. Wealthy brides often wore white to demonstrate their money, not their purity. However, the fabric was more important than the color to express the wealth, and many other colors were also commonly used: For example, blue was the color originally connected to purity, piety, faithfulness, and black was used a lot Scandinavia. White was not a widespread trend yet. Margaret Murray-Prior, in her wedding dress, 1882But after Queen Victoria's wedding, elites in Europe and across the Atlantic quickly followed her lead. Portrait of Queen Victoria in her lace trimmed wedding dress. (by Winterhalter, 1842)   The middle classes adopted this color only after Word War II, when media became more accessible and  Hollywood started to portray white weddings in movies.  In 1981 a three-quarter billion people watched Prince Charles marry Diana; this wedding is considered the most influential white wedding of the 20th century. It's hard not to remember Diana's white taffeta dress with [...]

Our favorite TV Weddings

By |marzo 12th, 2013|Categories: Blog posts, Brides, Design, News, Photography, Style|

Over the years, we have shared laughter and tears with our favorite TV characters getting married on screen.  Funny moments, romantic moments and moments when we just wanted to scream: "Stop! Don't say I do!" Here are some of our favorite TV weddings. Friends An all time favorite show with so many memorable weddings. It all started  with Rachel running away from her own wedding. Then Carol and Susan, Mike and Phoebe, and of course Monica and Chandler. But the funniest moment was probably when Ross said the wrong name when he wanted to marry Emily. Grey's Anatomy We loved Izzie's and Alex's wedding (too bad it didn't last too long) and Callie's and Arizona's. Although our favorite moment was when Derek and Meredith got married on a post-it. Desperate Housewives Susan's and Mike's storyline was always very complicated, they even got married twice. But we will never forget the series's finale, when Renee married her Aussie. Sex and the City Charlotte had one perfect wedding that didn't last and one disaster wedding where she married her true love. We loved Miranda's and Steve's simple wedding.But we had to wait for the movie to see the wedding we all have been waiting for so long: After uncountable on and offs and a memorable Vivienne Westwood wedding dress that didn't make it to the altar, Carrie and Big finally said "I do". Glee Sue Sylvester marrying herself in that track-suit wedding dress must have been one of the most original TV weddings ever. Would you wear this kind of dress to your wedding? Tell us: What was your favorite TV wedding?
