There has been so much wedding talk happening around here lately because my daughter Amber is getting married in a few short weeks, and that makes this giveaway with Simply Bridal even more exciting Based in Los Angeles, their bridal shops and website are such a great resource for high quality but affordable prices on gowns to bridesmaids dresses to jewelry.
Every bride deserves the most beautiful day and it all starts with the dress… and accessories! A veil can completely change your look and the selection at Simply Bridal is nothing short of fantastic. My favorite is the One Tier 45″ Lace Trim Veil and one lucky winner will get to have it for their big day!

Bridal Fashion Week saw a lot of top trends from our favorite designers like embellished necklines at Marchesa, shorter dresses at Nicole Miller and Kate Middleton-inspired lace at Monique Lhuillier. But nothing was more over the top than the attention-grabbing, voluminous styles that hit the runway. From mermaid to ball gowns to high low hems, every bridal collection featured a statement dress that would leave no question about who should be the center of attention on the big day.
Do you have the bigger the better mentality when it comes to a wedding gown? Then check out these three dresses below from Douglas Hannant, Reem Acra and Vera Wang and let me know what you think on Twitter @lorenridinger! xo

Our trip to Spain last week was just magical. And you can see it in this perfect picture of Alejandro Sanz and Raquel Perera first wedding photo. The surprise ceremony was like a fairytale with over 300 of their closest friends in attendance and I couldn’t have been happier or more full of love on their special day. Raquel was a beautiful bride in a stunning M&M couture wedding gown, Loren Jewels and a unique pin bouquet. Their ranch in Jarandilla was truly a wonderful and picturesque spot for Alejandro Sanz and Raquel Perera wedding. Our prince and princess.. congratulations to my family I love you both so much! xox

Invited to a summer wedding? It seems like every weekend is a wedding! What to wear to a summer wedding can be tricky with unpredictable weather and outdoor venues but I think I’ve found the perfect outfit! This twist front dress is insanely flattering and in a light color that won’t compete with the bride but still keep you cool. A snake print box clutch adds some edge and the gold statement necklace compliments the gorgeous peach suede Charlotte Olympia platforms (love). As far as beauty goes for a summer wedding, simple and clean is the way to go. The wavy hairstyle below is a great option, especially on a hot day!
