2024 Fashion Feature: A Lesson in Romance

Take inspiration from centuries of beauty to bring timeless fashion to your wedding day look. 

In McCune Mansion, one of Salt Lake City’s most historic venues, Belle Bodas event designers and In Frames Photography team up with Boda Bridal salon to showcase classic style with a modern twist.

Perfect pleats pair with sheets of diaphanous tulle for an eternally-chic bridal ensemble. A Regency-ready gathered strapless neckline transitions effortlessly into a modern sheath shirt, showcasing the best of all eras when it comes to comfort and structure.

Embrace simple elegance with the Gaia gown’s delicate straps, princess seams and snug satin silhouette. Layer on cathedral-length lace, and you are dripping with period drama demure.

Dare to be dramatic with glittering beadwork, an opulent ostrich-feather train and a flawless figure courtesy of intricate boning. And while the gown can (and should) speak for itself, add even more glamor with a pair of luminescent pearl drops.

With subtly crisp texture, a plunging angular neckline and a classic bodice adorned with ostrich feathers, the soft and sensual Moelleux gown redefines the traditional bridal look. Take the look old school with a time-honored tulle veil, or dive into the new century with unexpected accessories, such as this wide-brimmed (and fabulously feathered) white hat.

All rise for modern angles. Intricately pleated chiffon and mesh with strategically-stitched illusion cutouts deliver a modern charm and a sexy punch to a geometric bodice atop a classically tiered skirt.

You’ve heard of cottage core—this gown showcases a healthy dose of true “bride” core. True to its name, the Amour gown boasts a romantic off-the-shoulder bodice, a gentle gathered silhouette and deliciously silky fabric to wrap the bride in ageless luxury.

Boho meets Bridgerton in this flowing number, featuring statement bell sleeves and a striking neckline, adorned with button-up pearl details.

Modern vogue and charming vintage collide triumphantly in this unexpected fashion moment. Intricate Italian-inspired lace overlays sharply-constructed diamond mesh for a voluminous look evocative of a graceful ballerina. For even more high-style flair, add detached puff sleeves for additional structure.
