This week we celebrate not just one gown, but an entire collection. Otaduy speaks to the boho-chic bride and her vintage, folk-inspired, outdoor celebration. The gowns, which are designed and manufactured in Barcelona, feature lightweight fabrics, like silks and gauzy crêpe. We can’t help but swoon over their light, airy look and unique silhouettes.

We always say “I do” to Claire Pettibone, and her Spring 2012 line is no exception. The romantic fabrics and vintage French feel have us head over heels. Our favorite dress, the Fleur De Jour, is the epitome of romance. The strapless, beige, cotton toile gown features a subtle pink and green embroidered overlay and an optional ruffled sleeve bolero.

This week we celebrate opulence with Amsale’s Calista wedding gown, which hails from their Blue Label collection. The elegant strapless bodice of draped Windsor Duchess Satin makes us swoon, with its low-cut back and short line of delicate buttons. But it’s the flawlessly full, seamed tulle circle skirt that tells us it’s true love…

Elizabeth Fillmore’s 2012 bridal collection is equal parts daring and timeless. The dramatic designs speak of old Hollywood, while the use of fabric and carefully placed embellishments express Fillmore’s fearless nature. The Camilla gown’s A-line silhouette and elegant lace sleeves honor tradition, and remind us of a certain royal wedding gown worn last spring, but the exposed back and large floral lace neckline call to the indulgent and fashion-concious modern bride.

It’s no secret that pink is in, and what Vera says goes. We’re dying to see some 2012 brides don this shade, but it would be even better if it was this very gown. Piped and pin tucked to perfection, this gown’s drop-waist bodice simply paves the way for an absolutely unforgettable organza petal skirt with floating sprig embroidery. And that oversized gray bow? Swoon.
