“For Fall 2013 I wanted to explore the juxtaposition of translucent layers of laces, organzas, tulles and chiffons. This photo of the Ice Hotel in Sweden and how the light is reflecting in the room served as my muse. My palette is composed of a variety of shades of light you find in the early morning – Aurora, Dawn and Daybreak. My beading and embellishments are meant to look like delicate ice crystals that have formed organically. I wanted everything in this collection to feel like a snowflake on the ice… fragile and unique.” -Rita Vinieris
Little White Dress welcomes RIVINI to its family of fabulous dress bridal gown designers. RIVINI’s 21-piece Fall 2013 bridal collection is an ideal addition to our collection and offers even more choices of unique and special gowns to Colorado brides.
RIVINI’s most recent collection is inspired by the winter wonderlands of Sweden. You’ll see fabrics used in a way that might look like you’re in an ice castle, surrounded by delicate ice crystals and translucent lights. RIVINI has captured it all, from creating wedding dresses with longer sleeves and crystalized blouses, to delicate features such as frosted beads, aurora flares, crystal swirls, snow drop petals and icicle clusters. The collection will make you shiver with delight!
To get you in the wintery mood for this amazing trunk show, here are some of our personal favorites. To see these RIVINI gowns and many others, call today to schedule your appointment to our RIVINI Trunk Show, February 7-10, 2013! 303-814-8972.

Anne Barge’s most talked about 2013 bridal collection is definitely one for the books. She so eloquently captures Parisian style and culture, making you feel like you’re not just walking down the aisle to get married, but you might be strolling down the Champs-Élysées in Paris!
Please join us on January 25-27, 2013, when Little White Dress Bridal Shop will be hosting a gown-only Anne Barge Trunk Show – this time featuring all the brand new gowns from Anne Barge’s 2013 collection. Little White Dress Bridal Shop, a Denver bridal boutique, is the only place in Colorado you’ll find these delectable Anne Barge gowns.
To get you excited for her newest works of art, I’d like to share some of the features you’ll see throughout her 2013 bridal gown collection:
French influence. Anne says on her blog that she was looking to capture the “magical feeling of being in Paris” when she designed her gowns and when she created her runway show at NY Bridal Market this past October. In fact, she says the Ritz Paris was the inspiration for her collection. You’ll see French lace pieces, hand stamped silk organza and the abundance of removable over-skirts. The dresses in her collection also have French names such as Aimee, Simone, Celeste and Madeleine.
Varied necklines: Anne’s 2013 collection offers many variations of necklines (other than strapless gowns), which compliment a variety of women’s decolletage. You’ll see asymmetrical necklines, as well as jewel, square, and scoop necklines too.
Vintage meets modern. While remaining true to her timeless modern looks, Anne has seamlessly incorporated vintage details into this year’s bridal gown collection. The collection features sensual fabrics that remind us of the 1920′s and 30′s.
Here are a few of our favorite gowns that you’ll be able to try on during our Anne Barge Gown-Only Trunk Show, January 25-27, 2013. Please call 303-814-8972 to make an appointment.
Love Veils & Accessories “Dallas” – This is a Russian net side pouf with silk organza flower center. Flower has a Swarovski rhinestone, crystal and freshwater pearl center that is softly surrounding by ostrich feathers. Cori says it is a really fabulous piece to wear the whole evening or switch into for the reception to change your look! Photo provided by Cori Middlebrooks
This is “Savannah” by Love Veils & Accessories. It is a tissue linen flower with Swarovski crystal center. Cori says this piece is so much fun to customize. She says you can add a tulle or net pouf behind it, and the flower can be made of almost any fabric – silk organza, point d’esprit (Swiss dot). She says it would even look great on a sash too!

Cori Middlebrooks is the founder of Love Veils & Accessories and is host to several trunk shows each year at Little White Dress Bridal Shop in Denver, CO. Cori has fitted hundreds of Colorado brides with the most perfect accessories to complete their wedding day looks – anything from helping fashion-forward brides find the perfect veil, headpiece, Russian blusher, flower, headback and/or sash.
We interviewed Cori so we could share her fabulous vibe with all our brides – enjoy!
Where do you get inspiration for designing your veils?
When designing a new collection, I pull inspiration from lots of things and places – trends in bridal and ready to wear, past decades and especially brides that I’ve worked with throughout the season. If I am working with brides, and we continue to design a custom piece, I know it is “missing” from my collection, so I’ll add it the next season!
What does the fabric on a veil say about the bride who chooses it?
The fabric a bride chooses can show a lot about her personality and what kind of feel she is going for on her wedding day. French net definitely gives off a vintage vibe, point d’ esprit (or Swiss dot) can feel very feminine and romantic, feathers are fun and flirty … there are so many options!
Why do you use the word “love” in your business name?
I thought a lot about the name I would use for the line. I wanted something classic, sweet and not necessarily my name. Once “love” popped into my head, I knew it was the right choice. It’s what weddings are all about anyways, right?!
I heard that you recently said, “I do” – what veil did you choose and why?
Yes, my husband Jon and I got married in Austin last November 4th. I wore the pout blusher in tulle with a flower underneath it off to the side. Oh that was a tough choice. I went back and forth between that and a slip cut up until RIGHT before. I loved the look of the flower underneath the tulle – very soft and romantic. Then after the ceremony, I flipped the blusher around to the back for photos. THEN I switched into a French net pouf with a vintage brooch that I had wanted to use forever. I might have changed again towards the end of the reception, but that would have been excessive! Indecisive is my middle name! One of my favorite things though was this vintage turquoise French net that I used in my bridesmaids headpieces. They all had a slightly different flower in their pieces, and they looked amazing!

Why is choosing the right veil so important for a bride?
There are many different veil shapes and endless options of lengths and trims, so I understand that it can be overwhelming. Each shape will accentuate different features in a dress, so choosing a shape that compliments the shape of your dress, whether it be the narrowness of the cut or the shape of the train is really important. We want to show off the dress in the best way possible with the accessories. In my opinion though, accessorizing is the most fun part! You truly get to make your dress and your entire look your own by the accessories you choose.
Who is your dream celebrity to “veil”?
Wouldn’t everyone love to accessorize Jennifer Aniston? She usually keeps her accessories and hair simple and classic and has great taste in my book. I think Anne Hathaway definitely has fun with fashion and has her own sense of style, so she would be fun to work with, and of course … Jessica Biel, a Colorado native. She takes fashion risks and seems to always be trying different looks. I can’t wait to see which dress designer she chooses, so that would be a dream job!
What are some of the hot “veil” and “accessory” trends you’re seeing now?
The headband, worn all different ways, is certainly everywhere right now. Sashes seem to be a trend that is here to stay. I love all of the textured pieces right now – sashes, flowers, and headpieces, all with lots of texture created by using different fabrics in the same piece.
What can brides expect to see in your 2013 collection? When?
There are A LOT of new pieces in the 2013 collection! For starters, I have “officially” added sashes to the collection, so there will be 12 new sashes. There are also lots of new flowers, headbands and some fascinators, so many more options to make a bride’s decisions even harder! The new collection will debut at the International Bridal Week in New York on October 13-15, 2013. Little White Dress Bridal shop will be the first shop to get the collection, and we’ll have a trunk show at LWD right after Market on October 27th-28th.
You’ve been hosting a lot of trunk shows at Little White Dress Bridal Shop. What can a bride expect when she books a consultation with you?
I love working with brides at Little White Dress – they are always such a pleasure! At accessory appointments I usually like to start out by getting a feel for what the brides wants, and then we take a look at her wedding dress (or photos if she can’t bring it in). Then once I get a feel for her vision and see the dress details, we take the plunge and start trying on! If it’s a veil, we’ll start by looking at different shapes so she can see how they complement the dress. Then we’ll look at different lengths and trim options. All of my veils are custom, and I can certainly customize pieces from the Love Collection as well, which is always fun to do at trunk shows!
A Note from LWD:We are currently taking appointments for our next Love Veils & Accessories Trunk Show on September 15-16, 2012. As Cori mentioned, she’ll be back at LWD again on October 27-28, 2012 to exclusively launch her 2013 bridal accessory collection to Colorado brides!
