Douglas Hannant Spring 2011 Bridal Collection

Currently eyeing New York-based designer Douglas Hannant’s spring 2011 bridal gown collection. His wedding dresses remind me of a little of Claire Pettibone’s Continuing Collection, so if you like her design aesthetic you might enjoy this one.

I don’t think tiered wedding gowns are going to go out of fashion for a while, especially if they look as delightfully vintage as this one.

Layers of sheer lace make this wedding dress look as sweet as a cupcake.

I love the tulle skirt, though I think the detail on the tummy area may not be too flattering.

I’m still not over spring 2010’s nature-inspired trend, and I’m glad that designers are still adorning their dresses with flowers. I’m guessing that the purple flowering branches are digitally printed onto the silk fabric.

This is probably my favorite use of spring’s floral trend – tiny colored blossoms printed on a sheer fabric.

I quite like that Douglas Hannant’s stylists placed real flowers on their models’ hair; it totally gives new meaning to the bridal bouquet. This particular look might be too messy for a wedding though, so just take your cue from the other models’ romantic updos.
