CAROLINA HERRERA SPRING 2019 TRUNK SHOW

Ultimate Bride is proud to announce a Carolina Herrera Spring 2019trunk show this weekend!!!!

CAROLINA HERRERA

Establishing a globally recognized style aesthetic, Carolina Herrera has resided at the helm of her eponymous label for over three decades. With the encouragement and endorsement of legendary Vogue editor Diana Vreeland, Carolina Herrera presented her first collection of women’s ready‐to‐wear at New York’s Metropolitan Club in 1981. Opening her New York‐based atelier shortly after the inaugural show and cultivating a team trained in haute couture craftsmanship, Carolina Herrera aligned her name synonymously with the city and all things luxury. With wedding gowns often included in her ready‐to‐wear runway shows, Carolina Herrera introduced her bridal collection in 1987. Carolina Herrera has become the destination for brides in search of femininity, a touch of romance and exceptional craftsmanship known to the atelier. Since the collection’s inception, Carolina Herrera has outfitted renowned brides such as Caroline Kennedy, Evan Rachel Wood, Amy Smart and Kristen Stewart’s character Bella Swan in “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn”. Finding resonance on the runway, down the aisle and in the pages of global fashion magazines, Carolina Herrera soon found a new home on the red carpet, dressing stars both on the rise and Hollywood’s iconic set such as Oscar winners Renee Zellweger and Sandra Bullock, Salma Hayek, Michelle Pfeiffer, Tina Fey, Taylor Swift and Zhang Ziyi. With both a global focus and adoration for the sum of all things beautiful, Carolina Herrera has been hailed as “Fashion’s First Lady”..”

Here’s To Dad!

In honor of last weekend’s Father’s Day celebrations, we thought we would highlight that awesome guy who walks you down the aisle…Dad! There are so many ways to incorporate your dad into the wedding day other than just a trip down the aisle, so let’s take a look at how this fabulous guy can enjoy the big day!

Wedding Planning

There are some dads out there that may have a favorite song, or a favorite cake flavor so inviting dad to some wedding planning appointments may be just what he needs to feel like a part of Team Bride!

First look

The groom does not always have to be the first man in the bride’s life to see her ready! Some brides choose to have a special moment with dad to show him he will always be the first main man in her life! Whether you meet dad in specific spot or he comes to greet you in your bridal suite, he will love one extra daddy/daughter moment before he walks you down the aisle.

Father Daughter Dance

Maybe dad is more of a slow dance guy, so you can pick a song to dance to by one of his favorite performers! Or maybe he likes to break it down on the dance floor and the two of you can choreograph a dance to his favorite oldies tune!

Remember every father/daughter duo is unique so do what you can to make your dad feel extra special! After all he was the first guy you met!
