"Inspired by the 2011 grunge-styled film The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo, and the famous Petipa/Ivanov ballet, Swan Lake, our newest collection is simultaneously elegant and defiantly goth. With a play on dark romance, the palette of black and white gowns is hyper-feminine with minimalist undertones that give bridal a futuristic spin."- Angel spendlove, designer

 

This is bridal for the most confident of rule-breaking women.

What was the inspiration behind creating T E M P L E?

Shannon Pittman, Creative Director and Founder, felt compelled to create something for young women who want a luxurious high quality product, that feels as good as it looks, and can be passed on to generations within a budget she can afford. She spent a year working with her team in Mumbai, India to develop a range of gowns made with the same raw silk fabrication and hand-beaded attention to detail as Bo & Luca, but at a more affordable prices. We designed, prototyped, redesigned and re-prototyped for a year until we had a line we were really proud of.

The inspiration was discovering that women, no matter their budgets, should have the opportunity to wear a beautiful hand-made silk gown and we knew we were the ones to do it.

The result are designs that take cues from the boldness of the 70’s but maintain the elegance and intricacy of an heirloom wedding gown. Like Bo & Luca’s signature line, T E M P L E remains effortless and relaxed, without boning, cinching, and ties of traditional bridal wear. These gowns are as comfortable to wear as they are beautiful.

The inspiration behind the aesthetic and energy of the brand definitely riffs off the youthfulness of the women we’re trying to become more accessible to. She’s playful, raw, feminine but still utterly timeless.

What kinds of brides do you hope connect to the line?

We always say we have the best stockists, partners and brides. Somehow we’ve attracted these amazing brides, often times business owners themselves, unique sense of style, relaxed and self-confident, cares about quality and curious about travel and learning different cultures - so she connects with the story of how our gowns are made.

How can couples incorporate magic and personality into their wedding days?

When we picture the T E M P L E bride’s wedding, it’s definitely the wedding that you’d want to be a guest at - supremely authentic to the couple’s personal interests, influenced by epic music, dancing, and really about the people. Whether it’s Bo & Luca or a T E M P L E bride, I think the magic of anyone’s wedding comes from creating your own ideal wedding and being true to yourself.

 

T E M P L E for us has a raw, unfiltered but still beautifully feminine and timeless quality about it.

L'Eto Bridal

When a new line as absolutely breathtaking as L'eto Bridal comes on the scene we have cause to get excited. The sleek, modern take on wedding design is a welcomed addition to our current roster of favorites and we'll love nothing more than the front row seat to all of the incredible L'eto #realbrides we're sure to see in the near future.

Keep scrolling to see more of the Australian label with a strong desire to make individual choices when it comes to creating bridal wear:

"If you can imagine running off to the desert, or a cliff overlooking the tumultuous sea after your wedding, you’re probably a L’eto bride. A lover of architecture and fashion, and one that strives for individuality, the muse of the Australian based label is a woman who knows what they want but haven’t been offered it yet- that is, til we came along. L’eto Bridal is for those that are ready to let go of preconceived notions of what a traditional wedding dress is supposed to be."

"Born with a je m’en foutiste (couldn’t care less) attitude, the collection of 10 outfits is impeccably designed with the free spirited bride in mind. Ranging from the discreetly chic to nymph-like and sensual, L’eto Bridal delivers languid silhouettes with just the right touch of drama in the details. Each garment is carefully considered for a dynamic woman who loves expressing her singularity and uniqueness."

"Polished cuts accentuate the female form and drive the idea of laid-back sophistication into each and every garment. Modern and also timeless, elegant yet irreverent, feminine but not cloying, unorthodox but not trendy… The contrasts balance perfectly for brides of the 21st century. In an era where spirit is celebrated as much as outward appearance, having a beautiful dress that would not encumber nor distract from the most important person of the day is really a feat in itself."

& For Love Celebrates 5 Years of Dresses
five-year-anniversary-and-for-love-angel-spendlove-ritual-bride-wedding-dress-8

Have you heard? And For Love turned five and what a cool five years it's been! The "OG #coolbride" line of unconventional bridal wear has held a place atop our list of must-shop gowns, jumpsuits and other looks since splashing onto the scene in 2014. The collections, which tout dip-dyed hems, satin pants, rock n roll embellishments and a whole lot of style were tailor made by Angel Spendlove for the bride looking at something a little different for her big day.

To celebrate an epic run and a bright future, the brand rounded up 11 models and all the attitude bridal can muster in this stunning, industrial lookbook shoot. Keep scrolling for some serious style and Angel's words of wisdom:

Where do you find inspiration when designing for the & For Love bride?

I always start with a Muse. I always have a"cool girl" in mind every season and try to channel her vibe into how I'd style her. One year it was Kate Moss, one year it was my bestie in NYC, and this year for our 2018 season it's Rooney Mara.

Where do you see the line in another five years?

I'd love to have an amazing flagship store, though I'm still deciding what city I want that store to be! I'd also love to start doing more resort pieces and toying with the idea of footwear.

How can a bride incorporate personality and magic into her wedding day look without losing her personal style?

I think you need to stay true to yourself and not be a slave to trends. Choose a dress ( or great pants or a jumpsuit) because YOU love it and don't listen to anyone else opinion. Remember it's your day and not theirs. You'll feel the most magical if you're comfortable in how you look!
