2012 Favorite Wedding Dresses

I have been waiting for quite a while to have the chance to put together my top 10 (11 actually) wedding dresses of last year. You all know how I love, love, love THE DRESS! It all starts with the dress for me and I am so excited the day of every wedding to walk into the bride’s room and see her dress for the first time. So it’s only fitting that I would have a little spot here dedicated to my personal favorites every year. Like I said before, these picks are not necessarily everyone’s favorites or the hottest trends in wedding dresses, they are just styles I normally gravitate towards. And I hope you will love some of them as much as I do!

I will list them in chronological order by wedding date as I cannot possibly rank my favorites. ūüôā

First up is Ashley! This stunning master piece was designed by Jorge Perez and purchased at Macy’s Bridal Salon.

Heather got married last March at Kitchen Chicago. A venue I absolutely love! Her gorgeous dress is tea length Melissa Sweet creation from Priscilla of Boston.
