About TheFashionBrides

HI I’M ALINA! I’M A TRUE ROMANTIC AT HEART WITH A SLIGHT REBELLIOUS STREAK AND AN ETERNAL LOVE FOR WEDDINGS.

 

 

I think I have the best job in the world: I write about beautiful feminine and unique bridal gowns and I help my brides choose their perfect gown.  Whether you just need a bit of help to decide what bridal shape is the best for you or you straight up can’t see the right designer for you — you’re in the right place.’

 

Since you’re here right now, something tells me that you’re a fun loving bride that wants a different gown, something special perfectly suited for her.

But maybe you…

  • Have no clue what kind of wedding gown you need
  • Need help navigating through the see of wedding gowns
  • Feel like no designer has the right gowns for you.

 

No matter where you are The FashionBrides has your back. I curate a wide array of collections that will help you find THE ONE .

Each month over 60 new collections from all over the world make their way to you – all brand new and ready to serve as inspiration.

When I began writing I knew some bridal designers and saw the standard silhouettes. Trust me my dear, I’ve totally been there.  A decade later and over 1000 designers later I understood that this industry is so creative and innovative that it’s a real shame some brides just tippy toe there way to their bridal gown.

I HONESTLY BELIVE

  • Brides should see more designers that they already do (some amazing shapes and styles are buried deep in stores)
  • You shouldn’t be afraid to fall in love with a gown that is miles away – in this day and age everything can reach you
  • Feel wonderful when searching for the one – I am here to show you the BEST OF BRIDAL each and every single DAY

Who am I?

Just your regular soul in love with fashion, brides and writing. And in the end I’ve managed to mix them all and make my dreams come true! And since I’m OBSESSED with helping brides it all manifested in THEFASHIONBRIDES my bridal blog begun in 2007 ( god that seems ages ago)

How did this become my life?

Well, in 2007, I was working as a reporter for a news organization in Europe. It was a beautiful adventure but at the end of the day it was draining life out of me and step by step I made my way to lighter subjects – mostly beauty and later on fashion. Cue dramatic music.

So, I started my blog  as a simple creative outlet, in hopes of starting an online community. I had no ambitions of making it my full-time job and back then I didn’t know you could actually do that.

 

But my blog brought new opportunities.

My knowledge of bridal designers and bridal styles helped me land my dream job as a bridal consultant with a wide input in the creative and artistic process. I’ve understood that my life will never be the same after TheFashionBrides and I would never change a step.

My life changed completely due to my love of all things bridal and I do hope my passion will guide YOU as well to find the right one. There’s nothing more satisfying that seeing the smile on a bride’s face and that special first look of her groom.

Crazy, right? To receive so much from giving bridal advices.

And now I want to help you find your own gown.

Through  blog posts, social media shares, free guides, a Facebook and Instagram community, and much more, I’m here to make your journey as easy as possible. At the end of the road your perfect BRIDAL GOWN will be there.

Join the ride!

  2. Hi Laura,

    I’m glad I could help. But you have to keep in mind that those prices are from an European retailer, so the prices may be different in other parts of the world or even among EU countries.

  4. Hi Kally,
    I am surprised I only found your blog today, as I thought I had already seen all there was on the internet. Encouraged by beautiful blogs I was hooked on, written by fellow brides-to-be, in February this year I started my own blog, chronicling my wedding preparations:) Although it is 3 months after our wedding, I still continue blogging. For my post today I was looking for an image of a Valentino Sposa dress from the 2009 collection and discovered your blog. I am adding you to my blogroll straight away. Although my blog is in Polish (which I decided to do on purpose as the internet is full of great bride blogs in English, there’s hardly any in my native language) I hope you enjoy looking through the images:)

    on wordpress I also have a street style blog, but it’s only being started so there’s not much I can invite to yet, I’ll be working on developing it: http://islandfashion.wordpress.com/

    I can’t wait to explore your blog more:)

    My name is Maria and I am from Greece.I found your blog accidentally and I would like to say Congratulations!I’m 24 years old, I’m not going to get married soon but I’m interested in marriages and wedding gowns and other wedding stuff since I was a child. Your blog is the most full, organized, stylish, elegant weblog I’ve ever visited!!You’ve made me visited almost every day!The only problem is that we don’t have here in Greece stores with the most of the ‘brands’ you publish and some times I feel dissapointed. But it’s ok…Keep the good work girl!

    1. Hi Maria,

      Thank you so much! It means a lot to know that people like my work :D. I’ll try to be better than before and give you more interesting collections.

      You shouldn’t be upset because you don’t have the brands in Greece, I’m sure you’ll get the chance to travel or order it online :D. Maybe we’ll figure it out together when the time comes :D.
