Korina Sanchez Wedding Dress

Just fresh off the press, this photo is courtesy of
Renown Filipina news anchor Korina Sancez weds "Mr Palengke" Senator Mar Roxas this afternoon, October 27, 2009. We are waiting for Mar Roxas to announce his candidacy for vice-presidency. The Philippines thought Mar as heroic when he decided NOT to run for president to give way to pal Noynoy Aquino.

Going back to the lovely Ms Sanchez - IMHO, brides getting married over fourty are very aware about looking appropriate for their age. Korina looked stunning in this Pepito Albert Filipiniana inspired creation, she decided not to wear veil for her big day. Good choice Korina!

Ivanka Trump Wedding Dress

Check out the first official photo from Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner’s wedding, courtesy of Fred Marcus Photography.
I always admired the gorgeous Ivanka Trump, the beauty-and-brains daughter of mega mogul Donald Trump. I keep a close eye on her in the Celebrity Apprentice, all poker-faced and so exquisitely put together. Ivanka walked down the aisle in a custom wedding dress by Vera Wang and $130,000 diamond drop earrings from her Ivanka Trump jewelry collection. I must say, her wedding dress of choice is as smart s she is! Look at the refined classic lines of this Vera Wang dress - it is sure to be timeless years and years from now.
Five hundred guests attended the posh Jewish ceremony at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Sunday (October 25).

Tuscany Wedding for Marie Claire Editor

Myrza Sison must be one of my most interesting brides for this year. She was a celebrated international model in the 1980's - so with her height and figure, it was so easy to design this wedding dress for her. Myrza is an even more celebrated fashion magazine editor (think Marie Claire).For years now it was known that Myrza was too much of a career woman to even think of marriage. One day, destiny introduced Myrza to her perfect match, and fast forward to two years after she and her husband Andrej had a beautiful wedding in Tuscany, Italy.
Her wedding dress is of ivory fine chiffon, it is electric pleated and appliqued with bronze lace. It is also now available at Toccata.
