wangGia On The Move ventured out last night to the Grand Opening of David’s Bridal Shop at 6151 West Pico Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90035. The West Hollywood staff joined forces with C California Style’s fashion editor, Jenny Murray and LA-based David’s Bridal Style Council member and celebrity stylist, Nikki Pennie (whose celebrity roster includes stars like Charlize Theron, Carey Mulligan, Madonna, Michelle Williams, Octavia Spencer and posh fashion prodigy, Kate Middleton, among others) as they discussed top bridal and special occasion trends of the season.

You’re thinking…”Weddings? Really? It’s still ski season!”


Ombre Tulle is the delicate standout for the season.

There are some ladies out there who have been planning a lot longer than a mere holiday season for one of the biggest events of their lives.  It’s still that important.

In fact, the grand opening comes at a great time for brides saying “yes” during peak proposal season. One in three brides (33%) get engaged between Thanksgiving and the turn of the new year.

And since we are also in the midst of Los Angeles’ hottest award show red carpet season of the year, a preview of some of the inspired looks up close, was a treat not to be missed, especially for women seeking the dream bridal gown or trendy “night-out” re-wearable, fashion-forward ensemble.

It’s a fact that David’s Bridal has been around a very long time helping women save a few bucks on their gowns so they can actually spend that money on the wedding.

But this season introduces two exclusive designer arrivals at the shop —

TRULY Zac Posen and Vera Wang WHITE Collection

The selections are stunning. More glamorously sexy and sophisticated than romantic, each piece displayed during the brief show, had it’s own special appeal with the coup de gras and literally frosting on this evening’s wedding cake, a  very au currant Vera Wang in Black — decadent and mouth-watering.
