Sofia Vergara wore yet another gown by her favorite designer Vera Wang.  Sofia flaunted her famous figure in a curve-clinging red lace gown.  Lace continues to be a hot trend for brides in 2014, as well as gowns with straps!  Sophia’s gown featured a plunging V-neckline and the mermaid silhouette that’s perfect for brides who want to accentuate an hourglass figure like Miss Vergara’s.  This Lillian West gown, featuring re-embroidered Alencon lace, a tasteful V-neckline and a flattering fit and flare shape, is perfect for the bride who’s looking to achieve Sophia’s look but wants to tone down the sex appeal just a little bit. :)

January JonesJanuary Jones was the picture of feminine beauty in her dusty rose custom Givenchy gown.  This look is soft and romantic, featuring timeless lace and a silhouette that will flatter every shape.  And if you’re a bride who’s not afraid of a little color, how about a pink wedding gown?  You’ll be the definition of a blushing bride!  This Wtoo wedding gown is just as romantic and ethereal as January’s custom gown, and it’s in that same soft pink color!
