At least once a month and usually on a Friday, we write a long Instagram post where we introduce our newest followers to the world of Edith Élan bridal. We usually list some things we like or do so that you can get to know us better. This time around things are a little different. It's our very first vlog!
It has become our tradition to share our reflections/memories with you at the start of a new year. Sometimes we’ve done it through the “Instagram Best Nine” or through a blog post or both. With the second week of 2018 rapidly ending, we wanted to share with you EÉ’s top 17 memories of 2017.
It's almost been one year since our beautiful bride Mary traveled to Ireland to marry her beau Donnchadh. But, we've known Mary for over two years. We met Mary at the launch of our Fall/Winter 2016 collection back in September of 2015. When it was time for her to pick her wedding dress, it was our honor to have her be an Edith Élan bride!
The holidays are a special time of year: full of magic, love, happiness, time spent with loved ones, and gift giving. In some cases, those gifts are extra sparkly. In the bridal industry, holiday season is also known as “engagement season” for a reason. Anyhow, if you happen to find yourself on the receiving end of one of these sparkly gifts: CONGRATULATIONS!!!
And when you start you search for that perfect dress, you may find the magical inspiration you need right here. #bippityboppityboo

Some dresses come together beautifully. From the original sketch to the production sample, it’s 100% EXACTLY as envisioned. Our Leyla, was not one of those gowns.
Leyla is a wonderful mix of elements from other gowns in the collection, as well as, new elements to set her apart. She is a lovely blend of 1940’s glamour and modern-day minimalist, and we wouldn’t take her any other way.
Just like newlyweds, you sometimes lose track of time as a creative entrepreneur. We can't believe it's been a little over a year since Mel and Dave tied the knot! We thought we would share some of the beautiful images from their special day as a way to celebrate their love. No bias here... okay maybe a little... but Mel was so effortlessly charming in our Tamarisk gown! Or rather, her Tamarisk gown.
It’s always been our dream to showcase our designs in an international setting. This year, that dream came true. Here’s a cute story about this American bridal designer's adventures in London.

A year ago almost to the day, we introduced the world to the Edith Élan name. We were green fashion designers taking the "big plunge" exhibiting at our first bridal industry event. At New York Bridal Fashion Week, no less. What a learning experience that was!
With a new collection in tow plus styles that continued on from our the previous collection, one thing was for sure: it was time for a booth upgrade! Gone were the days of a cramped 10' x 10' space. But before we could even start to work on our booth, we had to get there.

To say 2016 has started off with a BANG for us would be an understatement. It would also be an understatement to say we have been “keeping busy.” At this moment, we’re in the midst of working on the samples for our 2017 collection. We're sending gowns from our previous collection to trunk shows across the country. And, on top of it all, we’ve been blessed with being able to take part in styled shoots.

It's easy to get caught up in our own world and get NOTHING else done! But luckily, we have the award season to pull us from our abstraction. It'll give us the much needed inspiration, "oohs, ahhs, and what the hell were they thinking's!"
Bridal fashion has the added fun in that we can look back at current bridal trends and see where on the red carpet they originated. This year's red carpet will have some trends that are right on point and some that will thankfully go to the wayside. Here are our favorite trends that will grace the white carpets!
