The couture dresses we see at wedding shows are so intricate they could be displayed in a museum instead of worn to an actual ceremony. But Cucculelli Shaheen, the latest bridal brand to join the fashion-forward ranks, brings these gowns to life to mind-blowing effect. The city-based label customizes gowns and minidresses for brides who subscribe to more fashion-forward aesthetics. Think luscious lace, floral and celestial motifs, delicate beading, and ultra-feminine silhouettes.

Founded by husband-and-wife team Anthony Cucculelli and Anna Rose Shaheen, the city-based label draws inspiration from classical art, music, and mythology to create its ethereal designs. A 2019 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist, the designer’s swoon-worthy creations exude femininity and power. Her latest collection combines Beaux-Arts beauty with City’s wild energy and romantic elements with a subversive edge.

Cucculelli Shaheen’s otherworldly designs were presented in a grand ballroom at Webster Hall during New York Fashion Week. The duo’s spring 2024 American Venus collection is an artistic love letter to City. The designers drew inspiration from the illustrious Manhattan Municipal Building, the American goddess who adorns its pinnacle. Their fusion of lush embroidery, effortless silhouette, and subversive edge embodies the spirit of a modern-day badass bride.

If Cleopatra were getting married today, we’d bet she’d wear a Cucculelli Shaheen dress. The City-based label curates the finest evening and bridal gowns that exude luxury, independence, and legacy. Exquisite beading, luxe lace and chiffon, and floral and celestial motifs highlight the collections. The designers also make it a point to minimize fabric waste, with nearly perfect patternmaking and the ability to reuse embroideries like lotus flowers, sunbursts, and constellations.

Kamperett is a women’s ready-to-wear label designing effortlessly chic pieces for the modern discerning woman. Its collections are designed and made in San Francisco with careful practices, using high-quality materials and ethically run factories. The brand was launched in 2015 by friends Anna Chiu and Valerie Santillo, who both had a background in fashion. Chiu was on a pre-med track before she changed course to run her denim brand, Ksubi. At the same time, Santillo studied art and design, ran a children’s clothing line, designed lingerie, and worked in product development at Restoration Hardware. The two designers bonded over their shared vision and landed on Kamperett, based on their mothers’ maiden names (Pferdekamper and Garrett).

Since its launch, the brand has been embraced by style makers in the Bay Area and beyond, including Ayesha Curry, Ali Wong, Rashida Jones, Clare Vivier, and Sherri McMullen. To celebrate the launch of their fall collection, the duo threw an intimate party at their Mission District atelier last month. Guests were treated to Vietnamese thach agar jelly candies and lemongrass cream desserts by local chef Renee Friedrich, who once owned the store that Kamperett now occupies.

The Central Saint Martins graduate has made a name for herself with barely-there dresses that are the antidote to stuffy wedding gowns, racking up fans including Zendaya, Bella Hadid, and Adwoa Aboah. She even won this year’s LVMH Prize, a prestigious award with mentorship from the conglomerate and a massive boost in sales for her eponymous label.

This season, Dojaka has expanded into bridal, launching a 24-piece line in collaboration with luxury e-tailer Mytheresa designed for the most daring brides. The collection features figure-hugging cutout wedding dresses adorned with Dojaka’s signature spaghetti straps and layers of sheer fabric, sequined minidresses, and bodycon corset-and-trouser ensembles that will turn heads.

Inspired by her friend’s wedding last year, Dojaka crafted this stunning dress expertly embroidered in delicate lace and fitted with an angular underwire bra detail. The design is also expertly finished with dainty thigh-high slit and crepe-covered cups. Another standout in the collection is this mini dress, crafted from silk chiffon with alluring cutout detailing. Complete with a double-strapped top, the design has a dramatic fishtail skirt and a matching tulle veil.

Playing off her lingerie-making roots, Dojaka has also included bras, underwear, and corsets in the collection to help create a completely covetable bridal look. Featuring intricate hand-pleated bra details and alluring cutouts, the collection will be available in white, black, rose gold, and blush pink to suit any color palette. The lingerie-inspired wedding range also includes two types of veils – a tulle and hip-length version to match any dress and a dramatic headpiece for the non-traditional bride.

The designer has also designed a wool pantsuit in her lineup for the non-traditional brides out there, letting them channel their inner Rihanna or Hailey Bieber at their weddings. The silhouette is paired with one of Dojaka’s bustier tops, which can be worn for an ultra-sexy look.

The Nigerian-born fashion designer debuted on the Dallas fashion scene seven years ago. Bright-eyed with passion, she pressed pause on her graduate pursuits at Southern Methodist University and went full force into designing her first ready-to-wear collection—without any financial assistance or immediate support.

The result is a brand that has grown to rival established bespoke bridal haute couture ateliers and is sought after by brides worldwide. Some gowns have detachable pieces and are adorned with intricate embellishments like hand embroidery and crystals. They also have dramatic silhouettes that have caught the attention of celebrity stylists and social media influencers who have requested the designs for their clients’ red-carpet events and weddings.

One of the brand’s latest collections is called “Essence.” It features a mixture of ostrich feathers, lace appliques, and pearls. From a blazer-style dress to two-in-one gowns for optimal reception partying, this one-of-a-kind line is perfect for the confident bride who wants to feel whimsical and light on her wedding day. The designer cites her inspiration as everything from places she’s traveled to her dreams, which often yield fresh ideas for new gowns. “I will wake up from a dream and immediately sketch a design down before it disappears,” she says.

Nardos Imam dreamt of being a fashion designer as a young girl growing up in Eritrea, and she has certainly come a long way since then. Her eponymous line now encompasses evening wear, custom bridal, and a ready-to-wear bridal collection inspired by nature’s beauty. Her standout collections feature standout details like oversized rosettes, colorful statement bows, and 3-D floral prints.

The brand’s namesake Design District showroom and bespoke service allow brides to create the wedding dress of their dreams, one of the styles from her existing collections, or something unique. The designer has worked with celebrities like Taraji P. Henson and Tyra Banks and featured in HuffPost, People Magazine, Vogue, Essence, Munaluchi Bridal, and CEOMoms. Her clients fly in from all over the world to get their hands on a gown from this beloved designer.

A classic flower seen in many funeral arrangements, chrysanthemums have different meanings around the world. In some cultures, they are associated with remembrance and grief, while in others, they represent eternal love and devotion.

With long stems and a stately look, gladioli are an excellent choice for funeral arrangements as they signify strength of character. They come in various colors, but it’s best to stick with white or subdued shades for a funeral.

Hyacinths are another common flower to see in funeral arrangements. Their significance varies by color, with white hyacinths indicating purity, green expressing extra blessings, and blue connecting to spirituality.

Carnations are common in floral arrangements because of their unique scent and beautiful ruffled petals. They also carry many meanings depending on your chosen color, with red carnations expressing deep sorrow and pink carnations letting the family know that they will always be remembered.
