Sometimes it’s so easy to fall in love with a wedding dress that you wish you could wear it to a dinner event, and its also works the other way around. We see an incredible evening dress and wish it could be worn as a wedding dress.
Here i’ve shortlisted 4 of Elie Saab’s Haute Couture dresses that could totally be worn as a wedding dress.
Lavishing’s of tulle, crystals and beads make this one of the most grandest collections that Elie Saab has ever created.
Daughter Of Eve had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with some of Phuket’s best Wedding Vendors. A beautiful project dreamed up by Chonlada Lafferty of The Bridal Planner Thailand and captured by famous photographer Darin Limsuansub of Darin Images. Together through a beautiful team effort, the most inspirational bridal photo shoot was created.
Freya, the Fashion Director of Daughter Of Eve presented two gorgeous wedding dresses from her collections that compliment two types of budgets. An ivory silk tulle ball gown with a sweep train, hand decorated with an ‘avant garde’ style bodice for the bride with a limitless budget – to the white tulle dress with classic beaded embellishment that can be worn candidly on the beach.
Whatever your budget, Daughter Of Eve provides brides from all over the world, with a dress to suit their dream wedding.
Carolina Herrera dress: Ivory silk tulle with ‘avant garde’ hand made sweetheart bodice and sweep train = 489,995 Thai baht
Pronovias Barcelona dress: White tulle with classic beading and a wrap shoulder = 49,995 Thai baht

There are so many weddings booked this year: it is truly a time to celebrate love and friendship. If you are getting married or if you are going to be a wedding guest, we are sure you will love our wedding shoe top-picks listed below. Glittering, jubilant and flirtatious designs that will guarantee excitement, the workmanship of these shoes are perfect to ensure your beautiful feet are comfortable all day and all night.
Lovely bridal hair doesn’t come more gorgeous than a luxurious half-up style, with dreamy curls and a center parting that opens up the face. If you want a hairstyle like this on your big day, treat your hair to regular conditioning masks for several weeks leading up to your wedding date. My favourite hair mask is Kerastase Nutritive Masquintense (available for thick or for fine hair), which I will put on before bed and sleep in then wash out the next morning so that it can deeply moisturise through all the fibers. I do this 1-2 times per week. For colour treated hair, choose Kerastase Reflection Masque Chroma Riche.
Beware to start with your hair up and work your way down. This is because you’ll have pin marks where your hair has been pinned up during the day and when you take it down, it’ll form that shape unless you have time to wash your hair and start again. If your hair has been half-up, half-down during the day, you can grab and grip the hair to the side to make a Chignon using the texture from earlier. Use a strong hair spray that will hold all day long and does not go flaky or powdery after you’ve touched your hair a few times. My favourite is Redken Forceful 23 to keep every hair in place all night and sometimes till the next day.
If you want poker straight hair on your wedding, then invest in good quality ceramic irons that will not damage your tresses. My favourite is the GHD V Gold Max that has an extra wide plate for faster ironing of long thick hair. Go for the Classic size if you have medium hair, and the Mini for very short and fine hair. I’ve been using GHD for 15 years and still have the original one in my cupboard that I take and use on vacations. Use a heat protecting cream if you have sensitized ends, it will make a barrier between the hair and the ironing plates. Add texture to your style with braids or hair jewellery.
This is my Dad and I on my wedding day; he is walking me down the aisle to my husband-to-be. I chose to wear my hair poker-straight with a slim braid on a side parting: this was to open up my face and keep my bridal style simple as my husband likes a classic and natural look.

I am busy ordering the newest designs from my partner brands that arrive in-stores around the world in 2016. Soft silhouettes and smooth textures of crepe, chiffon and poly-silk blends that give a “stretch” to the dress are being revealed. High necklines, straps and covered shoulders are leading brides into a more sophisticated, minimalist and enlightened approach to their bridal look.
My favorites are by Atelier Pronovias 2016. - A.P. prices start at 200,000. THB. However, an affordable version can be found in the Pronovias Barcelona 2016 collection, starting at 60,000. THB. Both collections will become available in bridal stores worldwide by March 2016.

For brides who require a strong mermaid or ball-gown silhouette, there are some great options in the Pronovias Barcelona 2015 collection. Satins and blended Mikado creates a clean modern texture to give a sleek finish.

For every bride-to-be, choosing her wedding dress is a very important and special moment. At Daughter of Eve, that is very much understood. They are the authorised retailer of various bridal-wear brands, from Oscar De La Renta to Hayley Paige to Carolina Herrera, brands that are hard to come by in Thailand
The best explanation of Elie Saab’s Haute Couture 2015 collection, that we could find in words!
“We stepped into the natural world – lush leaf foliage leading the models out in their gowns, for Saab is the master of them and knows how to bring to life Disney dress dreams. It wouldn’t be couture without them and he does what he does so very well, this time more feathers than sequins and more swing than sculpt to the gowns – some with petals unfurling as though a butterfly had stopped a moment”. By Jessica Bumpus.
Seasons greetings from Daughter Of Eve!
Every bride want’s to know what they should wear next year.
As you know, most bridal dresses do not go “in-and-out” of fashion like day-wear and evening-wear pieces… A very well produced bridal dress such as those made by esteemed designers like Vera Wang, Oscar de la Renta and Sarah Burton to name a few, are age resistant and many original pieces have become collectable.
But whether you are interested in what is trending now and in the next 12 months, or if you are a bride who wants to look totally unique and to free your appearance from popular culture… I suggest that finding a Look that you will love 20 years later should be the most important goal when looking for your dress.
In some ways, Yes – Men are correct to say “you only wear a wedding dress once” and they wonder why we spend so much money and time thinking about it. But NO, the dress is “worn” every time you look at your wedding photo’s. I know that when my children grow up, I want them to think “Mummy looked amazing on her wedding day”
