Okay, not to sound like crazies or anything, but how exciting is wedding season? The runways, the flowers, the glittering diamonds and oh-my-God the dresses. Absolutely nothing gets a woman’s blood pumping quite like finding that dream dress—or several—how can we choose? After talking about our bridal lingerie options, it’s time to find a gown that will make any groom burst into tears at the mere sight of his bride’s beauty. Is that too much to ask? A new Romanian brand that just caught our eye (you read correctly, exotic, no?), Bien Savvy, has chic, luxury wedding dresses that would make even the most stubborn mother-in-law fawn all over you.
Participating in Barcelona Bridal Week, Bien Savvy is starting to make a name for itself and it’s not very hard to see why. Connoisseurs of lace, organza and form-flattering silhouettes, their collections move seamlessly from puffy, princess ball gowns to body-skimming short dresses; it’s rare that a brand can speak to both trendy and traditional brides. Even the evening gown line has a range that can take women from a cocktail party to the Met Gala.
For those who want to rock a very of-the-moment dress down the aisle, they offer peplum hemlines, thigh-baring slits and sheer fabric to give you just the right amount of sex appeal to be sensual without looking trashy (it’s your wedding day after all). Those still deciding between a new dress or their grandmother’s heirloom will be drawn to the bustled layers, buttons cascading down the back and traditional laces. Even better, a few dresses blend the best of both worlds—adding a slit to a more formal gown or vintage accents to modern pieces.
Brides that choose to find a different dress for the reception (one more suitable for getting their boogie on), can find both options available here. Short tea party dresses, less restrictive empire waists and fluttery tulle are perfect for partying well into the evening and still looking the part of the pristine bride. Aside from the prevailing lace, most dresses have a minimal amount of glitz and glam, allowing the bride to choose her own glittering accessories and accoutrements rather than piling on a sequin-laden bodice or bedazzled empire waist.
With the amount of sheer beauty in the collection we’re pretty glad we’re not under any pressure to choose one immediately, especially since our preference seems to change with each dress. What makes this collection stand out is the variety—something that even the most terrifying of bridezillas couldn’t find fault in.
Bien Savvy Bridal is available online and priced from €600-€2,500 (approx. $822-$3,425).
