Feb 28, 2012 >> Spring is in the air! Belle Vie’s Amanda Bonnell weighs in on her favorite pieces

From Lavin to J. Mendel, Belle Vie Bridal Couture delivers inspiring fashions for your Big Day. Owner Amanda Bonnell shares with G&F her favorite Spring and Summer looks.

Stay tuned for exclusive coverage of Belle Vie’s bridal show at the Waldorf in the next issue of G&F.  

ROW ONE (from L to R):
Go vintage with Lanvin. Beautiful Lace with a modern twist of layered pearl and bronze necklaces.

I’m loving the juxtaposition of structured and soft with ornate head pieces. Elizabeth Filmore gown shown.

For a beautiful summer day, this washed tulle one-shoulder Lanvin gown is one of my personal favorites! Its dreamy fabric with fresh draping, would be perfectly topped with soft braided hair adorned with fresh flowers.

ROW TWO (from L to R):
Nothing says Spring like Valentino’s hand-painted poudre layered gown with sheer sleeves.

Blush is the new Ivory! Pair this fabulous J.Mendel organza gown with a fabulous accoutrement. We love the damask pattern crystal Minaudiere by Judith Leiber.

ROW THREE (from L to R): 
Point d’espirit is to summer, like Jacquard is to winter!  Guests’ jaws will drop when they see this Romona Keveza bride in her corseted strapped gown, beautifully accented with a sheer cascading veil.

Float down the aisle of your Garden Wedding in this Chantilly graduated peplum one-shoulder gown. Perfectly paired with a Paris bracelet.
