As you all know, I recently attended New York Bridal Fashion week where I got to peek at the gorgeous new collections of wedding gowns from the top bridal designers from all over the world! (Have I mentioned how much I love my job?) If there’s one thing that makes my heart sing it’s a gorgeous wedding gown. But as you can imagine, as a former budget bride myself and the editor of The Budget Savvy Bride, it can be a little disheartening to get sucked in to all the prettiness only to be punched in the gut by a high price tag. It brings me back to the days of planning my own wedding in an instant.
Searching for a wedding gown was one of the hardest parts of wedding planning for me. So much so, in fact, that I ended up getting my gown custom made, (which turned out to be a total disaster,) but that’s another story for another day. Thankfully, I now know so much more about wedding dresses than I knew then. Actually, in the past several years of attending bridal market I’ve learned that there are some really amazing designers who create high quality gowns at prices that budget savvy brides can actually afford! (Wish I’d known of them about 8 years ago!!)
Lucky for you, I’m here to share a gorgeous brand who has plenty of gorgeous gowns in our readers’ average price range! Madison James is a collection under the Allure brand of bridal gowns, and the Spring 2016 Collection is one that’s too stunning to miss!
The Spring collection seamlessly blends modern and vintage styles to appeal to a romantic bride with a touch of old-world glamour. Madison James believes that great design draws inspiration from many places, and as such their collection is inspired by high fashion, vintage silhouettes and luxurious fabrics.
The collection features loads of feminine details that are sure to make you feel incredibly beautiful on your big day. From lovely laces to illustrative illusion necklines and backs, when it comes to this collection it’s all about the details. Stunning designs that feature delicate beading fill out the collection, and there are a variety of silhouettes to flatter every figure.
Take a peek at some of the gorgeous designs from their Spring 2016 collection below. Try not to swoon too much!
