"Enter our Royal Suite, hang you 'Do Not Disturb' sign, and shut the door"
With 2020 being the year of lockdowns, halted wedding plans, and guest caps for parties, Galia Lahav has brought out a new 2021 collection reflecting just that! 'Do Not Disturb' Haute couture wedding dress series invites brides to "the ultimate girl party", showcasing "the beginning of a decadent day of girl power, endless fun, extravagant shopping and room service that keeps on coming".
This dreamy collection of couture wedding gowns are expertly designed with an array of exotic embroideries, delicate hand-beading, whispering feathers and lots and lots of frothy soft tulle. True to the Galia Lahav brand vision, this collection is tailor-made for fashion-forward brides who are seeing to express their unique and unapologetic individuality. In this new collection, brides will have a range of signature Galia shallots to select from in this luxuriously whimsical collection. For brides who don't just want "white", this collection offers a large spectrum of colours from warm ivory to blush to nudes and power pinks to champagne; the colour choices are seemingly endless. With so many gorgeous gowns to choose from, here are some of our favourites.
The Signature Galia Lahav Fit & Flare Dresses
It's not a complete Galia Lahav collection without their most signature sleeveless figure-hugging bridal style that comes with an elegant flare from the lower legs, which trails off to a beautiful train. If this exact set of gown characteristics ticks your boxes, then Angie, Blair and Eddie should be your first stops. All three of these gowns have some gorgeous and unique cutouts and intricate beadwork over delicate floral laces. So if turning up the old Hollywood glam and sparkles are your thing, put Blair on the top of your must-try list! Next, we recommend Rania and her gentle, whimsical lacework for brides who love the fit and flare look but want a style with sleeves. Finally, for the brides who love a more modern, strapless or off-the-shoulder look with this fit, we recommend Jules and Magia. Jules features that classic Galia Lahav low-back with a bold statement V-cutout for the daring bride. At the same time, the trailing scattered floral lace on Magia creates a dream illusion of flowers cascading to hug the body and the sheer side panels.
The Dreamy Ballgowns
Take a leaf out of cinderella's books and hit it with a dash of elegant drama, and you will get Galia Lahav's wedding ballgowns. Gale makes the perfect faery-from-the-woods look with her bold floral lace cascading down her pointed sheer corset top and the box pleated silk tulle skirt. The combination of faux lacing side panels and off-the-shoulder bell sleeves gives a more modern chic touch to the gown. Brooks and Casey are our picks for brides who love their ball gowns with more A-lined but still voluminous tulle skirt. If mixing rustic with whimsical is the inspiration, we recommend trying Gimaya with her off-the-shoulder lace sleeves and the soft lacework that eventually trails off into a flurry of soft tulle. Finally, Just like there is a touch of old Hollywood flare in the fit and flare gowns, the double-layer pleated tulle hem and intricate 3D lace on Mimosa gowns will give you a dose of that old-era drama.
The Wear-your-drama-on-your-sleeve Dress
Galia Lahav introduces a new design concept to one or two collection pieces with each new design series. For the 'Do Not Disturb' Haute Couture collection, a sleeve train makes its debut. Found on Amanda dress, the sheer mouton sleeves come with a dramatic tulle bow that leads to a cascading waterfall of soft tulle that trails into a sweeping train. For brides who want a train and want to be stylishly different, we highly recommend giving this french lace dress a try!
The Dramatic Short & Sweet Dress
This one is for the stylistically daring bride who wants something very different from the traditional wedding dress. Add a touch of rock-n-roll like drama by adding a matching detachable skirt with this perfect-for-elopement short wedding dress. The stylish netting lace and quirky feathers make it a uniquely glamorous wedding dress that everyone will remember.
