David’s Bridal Spotlight: Oleg Cassini and Galina Signature

Galina Signature Exclusively for David’s Bridal Beaded Illusion and Crepe Sheath Wedding Dress, $828 Dress Style:

With a certain wedding of the century happening in nearly a month’s time, there’s been so much back and forth over the role that time-honored tradition and history will play in the royal wedding. Prince Harry and his bride-to-be have made it clear - since getting engaged last fall - that they’ll be incorporating boilerplate, obligatory observances in their wedding, but doing so with a lot of modern tweaks. And all of us on the sidelines just can’t wait to see everything unfold, especially when it comes to the fashion focal point. Meghan will certainly be showing solidarity with her sovereign sister (Kate) and late mother-in-law, by wearing something that oozes royal refinement and resplendence. But something tells us she’ll also be making a signature statement all on her own. ((We love you, Kate and Wills, but Meghan and Harry kind of have you beat when it comes to public anticipation over their nuptials)).

We partnered with David's Bridal and an A List group of wedding professionals to bring your our vision of their gowns. This is just part one, you won't want to miss the other amazing gowns so be sure to check back. Anyhow, the two visions: opulent, timeless, elegant and polished versus dramatic, sexy, confident and captivating that we have in mind for Meghan follow two of the (eight) exclusive designer brands for David’s Bridal: Oleg Cassini and Galina Signature, respectively.  Bonus, if you love Irelyn's hair below, be sure to keep scrolling for a Cheater Braid Hair Tutorial.

Cheater Braid Hair Tutorial Dress Style:

Though each of the collections stays true to David’s Bridal standards for quality and craftsmanship, they do so in gorgeously-different ways to appeal to two equally stylish soon-to-be brides and their particular preferences. Whether that’s via luxurious fabrics, intricate appliqués or fine, meticulous beadwork or, alternately, through sheer illusion fabrics, soft, yet sexy lace and tulle, plunging necklines, corsetted+contoured construction and figure-skimming silhouettes, what a bride wants she’ll certainly get from these exceptional labels.

Take a peek at Oleg Cassini, the arbiter of all things regal and finespun. The first choice for a monarchical marriage like the one we’ll be watching SOON.

David's Bridal Oleg Cassini Gown CWG780 Dress Style:

This ball gown blows our minds 🤯, featuring yards of opulently-beaded and appliquéd tulle that work together to create softly-folded pleats in a full skirt and chapel-length train. From top to bottom, the dress is adorned with 5,000 beads and sequins and finished with scalloped lace trim around the hemline for a fiercely-feminine bit of flair.

Take a peek at Galina Signature, the gatekeeper of bridal fashion with a total wow factor. The aesthetic is one that we hope (and believe) the future Duchess of Sussex is eyeing for her wedding day.

Galina Signature Style SV771 Dress Style:

This chic crepe sheath is simple, yet incredibly striking from the front, leaving wedding guests to wonder what magic is happening in the back. And it doesn’t disappoint, either. The clean-lined tank bodice and fitted skirt is amped up with glamorous, swirling beaded illusion details at the sides, back and along the train. The pearly covered buttons along the back nod to tradition, but the gown is an undeniably modern show-stopper.
