Bridal designers are now catering to the individualistic, creative mind. A premiere source for bridal fashion inspiration, designers continue to cross boundaries redefining the classic bridal market. Dresses that have an effortless chic with accentuated necks and exposed backs for a particular minimalist approach. Trends are changing … style is changing and so is this billion dollar market. From pastels, shimmer, modern edge, capes, and floating statement sleeves the West Coast style enhances simplicity with confidence. Although many of the pieces aren’t traditional, the elongated length of the garments still resemble that “bridal look”. Fashion Reverie looks to Los Angeles boutiques who cater to every unique individual—from Jin Wang, Mon Amie, Marina Morrison, Vera Wang Bride, Panache Bridal, Allure Brides, and the only West Coast bridal fashion trade show, The Knot.These bridal boutiques are stocked full of bridal collections that can appeal to that West Coast bride with three standout trends. For shimmer and shine look to bridal brands Berta, Mira Zwillinger, Naeem Khan and Mark Zunino with Zunino and Berta having a strong West Coast presence.

For more a masculine design aesthetic look to such brands as Justin Alexander and newcomer Gracy Accad. And for that destination beach or resort nuptial no bridal brands serves that occasion better than Carol Hannah. All these brands that are non-traditional in their approach can be found in a variety of West Coast bridal boutiques.—Courtney S. Wilkins
