At Lasting Love Bridal, we offer bridal gowns, bridesmaid dresses, unique special occasion gowns and keep you informed with industry trends and wedding tips. Not only do we work with fine fabrics, but we also offer 42 shades and infinite sizes. Our team knows that you'll be making forever memories in a special gown, so why not choose the best-suited style and color to match the special occasion?
Whether you're getting married in the Spring, Summer, Fall, or Winter, the perfect wedding dress exists – for all seasons. Plus, have you considered an outfit for your California engagement shoot? We'll get into engagement shoot styles a little later, but let's dive into the seasonal wedding gowns.
Spring Season Bridal Gown Ideas
For the Spring, the team at Lasting Love Bridal envisions a wedding gown with floral applique, lots of feathers, and a sexy silhouette. Of course, it's all up to the bride to choose which gown will be the best fit and more comfortable for the day's festivities. Our wedding stylists suggest an open back with a scoop neck style and a light skirt at the bottom. Take a look at Dress Luna, which encompasses such design elements for the perfect Springtime bridal gown. We're fascinated with the gorgeous back veil that can be quickly taken off. The ivory wedding gown features a v-neck style front with a light beaded pattern throughout.
Our second pick for the perfect Spring wedding dress, you guessed it… Dress Libby. This gorgeous gown is adorned in beads and features head-to-toe feather details. The dress opens up at the front side of the skirt and ends with a dazzling train at the back. The soft grey is not the usual wedding dress color most would prefer, although it's perfect for a bride who wants a more unique and magical look for her Springtime wedding party.
Bridal Dresses for Summer 2022
Summer wedding gowns can be both majestic and casual. A summer wedding can bring about perfect warm weather for a morning or late afternoon ceremony, depending on the location. For most places, hosting a wedding in the Summer can mean lots of direct sunlight, dry, hot temperatures, or super humid and hot weather. As the bride, you need to prepare for where you're going to be seated for the most part and how you personally feel about the type of climate that will occur that day.
Of course, if you're doing a beach wedding this Summer, a super casual white wedding dress would be the perfect look. Check out Dress Lulu, which features a classic open-back ruffle-style wedding dress. The ivory color is the ideal match for the seashores and sandy ground. This bridal gown's off-shoulder design keeps the bride feeling fresh without compromising on fashion. The ruffle skirt also gives you room to breathe and ample space with each step taken to the altar, over sand or dirt.
The second wedding gown picked for the summer wedding look is Dress Linda. Not only does this gown stay on trend with the delicate lace detail at the back, but it also features a classic button-down front, which is simply divine. Our LLB staff loves this look for the summer bride as the cap sleeves complement the v-neckline from front to back. The cap sleeves also help keep your shoulders covered in the instance of hard sunlight during the ceremony or photoshoot. The long train keeps this wedding look classic.
Fall Season 2022 Wedding Dress Ideas
There are plenty of Lasting Love Bridal gowns to choose from for the Fall. Through our years of experience with the wedding industry, we feel that the Fall Season is the most popular for wedding ceremonies in Southern California. Since this area of California boasts a dry heat during the Summer, the Fall climate promises a fresh yet sunny day for such a momentous ceremony. This means that your wedding dress can be a bit more on the bulky side. Our stylist recommends the brides-to-be who wish to have a layered skirt – should do so in the Fall.
If you're looking for a unique wedding gown for the Fall, Dress Lauryn might be the perfect style for you. The non-traditional blush color includes a nude lining to enhance the color, infused with white chiffon. The top of the dress is very minimal yet bold with its criss-cross straps. The cherry on top is the playful and clunky skirt that can go a long way for that perfect wedding photo that will last a lifetime!
The LLB's staff's second pick for the ultimate autumn wedding dress is the classic white ivory, ruffled tail skirt, Dress London. This traditional wedding gown will keep all eyes on you for the entire wedding ceremony. The gorgeous and one-of-kind embroidery on the top of the dress wraps around from the neck to the shoulders. The illusion neckline wraps around the entire sleeves and ends with matching white buttons at the wrist. The ruffled mermaid tail skirt keeps the look majestic as there is some peek-a-boo action at the back of the gown. Hands down, Dress London, is truly a unique wedding gown that can be worn year-round.
Winter Wedding Dress Styles
Winter wedding gowns are a whole vibe. Deciding to get married during the wintertime is a bold move... and we applaud the brides that do so! The winter months can bring about the coldest temperatures, no matter where you live in the U.S. Plus, planning a winter wedding can be competitive as many holiday parties. Although a winter wedding can occur in January or February, it's a slow period for the wedding industry.
The Winter Season can bring about lots of opportunities to secure the venue of your dreams and get much more needed attention from your wedding planner to the stylist and other vendors you'll be collaborating with for the big day. When it comes to wedding gowns, you can also be bold yet traditional in style.
For a traditional winter look, our top two wedding gowns are Dress Lynn and Dress Lily. Featuring a white illusion neckline with gorgeous embroidered sleeves, Dress Lynn encompasses the warm and full wedding gown perfect for the Winter Season. The unique floral applique covers the sleeves, while the buttons at the back give off a floating vibe. Meanwhile, Dress Lily comes in a champagne color, featuring gorgeous tulle bows at the shoulders. The classic vintage wedding gown style inspired this modern wedding gown. The plunging v neckline is adorned in beads, while the tulle fabric plumps up the mermaid-style skirt. Oo-la-la-!
Touching base on the engagement shoot wardrobe, try to wear something that will match the wedding theme if you haven't done so already. These photos may serve as a hint to others on what type of style your wedding might be and what your favorite colors are – you know, for gifts and wardrobe ideas!
Wedding Dress Trends 2022
Here at Lasting Love Bridal in Irvine, California, our team is always trying to stay on top of the trends with everything bridal. Our current top dress picks for bridal gowns include Dress Lana, Dress Luna, Dress Lulu, Dress Leah, and Dress Leanna.
Dress Lana features a blush color fabric which features an embroidered top and vivid details at the straps. Meanwhile, Dress Luna is perfect for a simple and traditional look, and the veil at the back magically transforms this wedding gown into a fairytale look.
If you're looking for a bit more of a casual wedding gown, then Dress Lulu is the best look! The classic open-back dress features an off-the-shoulder design at the top and a ruffled skirt at the bottom – creating magical layers to the overall look. Dress Leah keeps it a bit more minimal and conservative. This gown comes in a two-piece set which features a solid white long sleeve top and a fluffy skirt at the bottom with a unique floral applique.
Last but not least, Dress Leana features a classic sweetheart-shaped bodice with an off-the-shoulder design. You'll be standing tall in a signature mermaid-style feathered skirt with added bounce.
Top Bridesmaids’ Dresses 2022
Dress Sascha features a beautiful ruffled top with a long a-line skirt. Meanwhile, Dress Hazel keeps it classy with a bold strapless bodice and a unique tie back. The long straps can be altered, or they can remain as is, depending on the choice of the bride or her bridesmaids. Dress Maria incorporates thick straps at the top for extra support and a classic sweetheart-shaped neckline.
If your bride tribe is looking for something more on the comfortable side, Dress Stella is your best bet! This bridesmaid gown features a sheath skirt that is long and soft and gently flares out from the hip area. Last but not least, Dress Malia keeps the bride tribe looking more traditional with its bell cap sleeves and long a-line style skirt.
