The Limited will launch a Wedding & Event Collection on June 3, 2010, just in time for wedding season. The Limited is offering two wedding dress styles that are effortless, yet emanate romance and elegance. The two event/bridesmaid dresses are seasonless and will be staples in any woman’s wardrobe. This collection will be available for purchase online and the two event/bridesmaid dresses can also be found in The Limited Stores nationwide

In an oversaturated market, it is refreshing to find exquisite dresses such as these at a conservative price. Made from pure silk and cotton, these silhouettes will flatter any bride. Each wedding dress is available for $298.

The Romantic Wedding Dress is flowy and feminine without being fussy. It can easily translate to fit various wedding types; from a casual beach wedding or in a lavish ceremony. This eye-catching classic off-white dress will satisfy even the most discerning bride. Its silk chiffon cascading vertical ruffles allow for movement and airy flow.

The Elegant Wedding Dress stays true to its name with fresh finishes. With a classic silhouette and trendy touches, this ivory colored dress is perfect for any modern bride-to-be. A hidden pocket and smart belt is an instant update to this distinguished style. Though modern, the silky cotton material is the perfect combination; you will feel like you are floating on clouds while walking down the aisle.

A wedding would not be complete without a wedding party. The Limited is offering two select styles of event dresses ideal for any bridesmaid. These dresses can be found online as well as in The Limited stores nationwide. The Ruffle Front Halter Dress is fun and flirty. Available in 3 color ways: Bright Poppy, Gothic & Green Lagoon (shown). Any bridesmaid will be thrilled to wear this special dress that is not only seasonless but can truly be worn again and again. The soft materials and flattering movement is an added touch to this classic style.

The Draped Waist Tank Dress will flatter any figure and versatile for any type of bride’s taste. The length is not too long, not to short, and the sleeveless style of the top is not so bare. A deep “V” in the back polishes off the dress. With its soft color palette, yummy material and wear-again style, your bridesmaid will thank you. This dress is available in three colors: Smog Grey, Dark Periwinkle and Turquoise.

The Wedding Cafe Bridal Showcase

As I’ve said before I seem to be a terminally single woman still looking for the mister that will make me a misses, so it was with a shrug of my single shoulders I decided to attend The Wedding Cafe’s Bridal Corporate Spring Social Showcase. “Established in 2005, Wedding Café NY located in the heart of the city (16 East 38th Street), has been servicing the needs of wedding vendors and brides with its extensive resources. By fostering a modern and sophisticated environment, we seek to provide the optimal venue for all types of events. Our elegantly designed venue is perfect for a cocktail party, wedding ceremony, bridal shower, corporate event, vendor showcase, or any other type of social gathering.”. Vendors such as Photographers, Makeup artists, Caterers, Bridal Gowns and Accessories, Wedding Planners, Cake Designers, etc utilize the Wedding Cafe for meetings with prospective clients to showcase their goods.

I was the first to arrive and entered to find a lively crowd

and a lively band keeping the crowd festive

the first thing I noticed were these gorgeous towering floral centerpieces

and these exquisite cakes by Charmaine Jones, the Cake Diva

I got a chance to interview her briefly about her craft

She also baked and gave out these delicious cupcakes. She had two flavors – regular and lemon (I was bouncing off the walls for several hours after eating one)

After the initial sugar rush, Kim, Alexandra* and Natasha arrived and we took in the ambiance of the event space. While noshing on sushi, spinach and cheese quiche, I noted the following touches

and was blown away by this masterpiece below. It was on display on the upper level of the Wedding Cafe. There was no indication as to who created it but it’s too beautiful not to showcase this fairytale fantasy
