Designer We Love...

The essence of simple luxury...With petal softness, crisp and creamy shades of bleached white and ivory and sweeping silhouettes, R I V I N I™ ushers in a refreshing new era of simple luxury. Cut from lush silk satins, crepes, chiffons, and organzas, the R I V I N I™ collection flows with a purity of line. Fluid silhouettes and meticulous attention to detail have long been R I V I N I™ designer Rita Vinieris’s understated signature. Vinieris infuses her Collection with a sense of light-handed charm. It’s feeling born of sublime luxury and low-key ornamentation. Hers are wedding dresses cut from a modern mould. Subtle finishing touches include soft tucks and pleats, understated beading, sheer panels of fabric, a beguiling illusion, and a variety of couture techniques and styles. Workmanship of the highest level, uncompromising quality and fit are the cornerstones to this contemporary bridal collection. Vinieris’s unerring sense of what modern brides desire has shaped a Collection that is alluring in its design, chic in its perfection, the essence of simple luxury. Source:
We love Rivini for the amazing quality of their fabrics and gorgeous elegance that each dress so blissfully displays. Both our Gainesville and Winter Park stores carry Rivini, with Winter Park having a larger selection at their actual location. If the dress is not in store, we would be happy to order it if you think it's the one!

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!

  • Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
  • Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
  • DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
  • Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
  • Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
  • If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
  • Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
  • Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
  • Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
  • When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
