Last week, our bridal buyer, Sharon Wikstrom, traveled abroad to meet with Spanish wedding gown designer Rosa Clará. A new designer to the Wedding Suites, Rosa Clará is known for creating elegant gowns with ’50s-style structure and silhouettes, voluminous silk satin skirts and soft sleeves in lace and tulle. Sharon has said she could see herself in a Rosa Clará gown if she were getting married today!
Sharon’s trip included a visit to the showroom to look at gown collections and meet with the Rosa Clará team, plus some time spent playing tourist and taking in the sights of beautiful Barcelona! Here she shares photos and notes from her trip.
A little jealous of Sharon’s trip? We are, too. But you can get a little taste of Spain by seeing these beauties in our Wedding Suites now! Dresses and cover-ups from the Rosa Clará Bridal and Two by Rosa Clará collections are brand-new in Nordstrom Wedding Suites, so make your appointment to check them out! Adiós!
Saukok Tiampo, guest contributor of REVEL, has us dreaming of spring with this lovely palette.
Our latest wedding look is inspired by an updated country affair, in peach and dusty blue. Pretty shades of peach with touches of lace make for a soft look that evokes spring, while the dusty blues add a bit of elegant contrast (this is no honky-tonk!) The addition of some woodsy neutrals gives it a rustic feel, ideal for an outdoor spring/summer celebration!
Nordstrom never ceases to amaze me with the amount of perfect pretties to be found in one place:
‘Dakota’ gown from Two by Rosa Clara | Kendra Scott Earrings | Badgley Mischka ‘Goodie’ Heels | ‘Jessie’ dress from Donna Morgan
Visit me at REVEL for all the details on this dusty blue and peach wedding inspiration, or to check out our wedding inspiration by color and style!

‘Til next time,
For our eleventh day of gowns, we bring you two collections from one designer: Rosa Clara Bridal and Two by Rosa Clara. We couldn’t resist these delicious lovelies that will bring loads of new silhouettes and a range of price points to our Wedding Suites.
We especially love the lace jackets that complement the gowns so well that they look like they’re part of the dress. What bride wouldn’t adore having such beautiful options?
Our National Bridal Director, Andrea Wasserman, shares her insider photos and a quick trend recap from Bridal Fashion Week.
I’m back from Bridal Week, where it was all about the back: interesting low-cut backlines, lace, and illusion. We’re still seeing illusion necklines and straps, and convertible details are also in (think removable peplum, lace toppers, cover-ups and convertible straps). We also saw tea-length and Jackie O.-inspired dresses—definitely a nod to classic glamour.
Overall, there are a lot more diverse necklines, rather than just strapless.
Of course, there are still the traditional, ultra-flattering styles like A-line, mermaid and sweetheart neck.
