A Sneak Peek at Rue De Seine's Upcoming Collection | Wild Heart
Disclaimer: this blog post is going to be the ultimate tease. The new Rue De Seine Wild Heart bridal collection doesn’t launch until this coming fall, but after getting a sneak-peek at Bridal Fashion Week in New York, we couldn’t resist sharing just why we are all counting down the days until these beauties land permanently in their a&bé homes.
The lead designer of Rue De Seine, Michele, meticulously crafts each wedding dress to be fresh, unique, and completely unforgettable. Each collection of wedding dresses brings to life a unique vision, all while maintaining the signature bohemian vibe of the Rue De Seine brand. The Wild Heart collection brings in elements of texture and color that will transport you to the exotic beaches of Morocco. The designs are vibrant, romantic and adventurous. The title ‘Wild Heart’ completely encapsulates the essence of these wedding dresses. To understand just how perfectly two words can describe something so magical, I wanted to share with you a few of our favorite wedding dresses from the current ‘Moonlight Magic’ collection. We were so in love with the concept of this collection, that we weren’t sure how they were going to top it, but if these images make your heart skip a beat, just wait until you see ‘Wild Heart’...
What we love most about Rue De Seine is their mission to bring unique, hand-crafted wedding dresses to brides all over the world who are looking for something more than just a pretty wedding dress. A Rue De Seine bride wants to authentically express herself by wearing a work of art that tells a story. All of the fabrics used in the Wild Heart collection are hand-designed and exclusively created for Rue De Seine, and each of these wedding dresses is made from start to finish in their studio in Auckland, New Zealand.
And you won’t find these wedding dresses just anywhere. Rue De Seine has hand selected a small number of retail partners that share in their vision. a&bé is so honored to carry the Rue De Seine bridal line in Denver, Minneapolis, Dallas, and Miami. If you aren’t in one of these cities, we highly recommend making the trip to see them in person - you won’t be disappointed. And if you are a bride-to-be who has been drooling over Rue De Seine gowns since the moment the ring went on your finger, here are our top 3 tips for shopping for your dream Rue De Seine wedding dress:
1. If you have fallen in love with a particular style, it’s time to pull the trigger! Each year Rue De Seine discontinues about 90% of their bridal collection in order to ensure that your wedding dress is not worn by half the brides in your city. If you are a fangirl of this brand, it can be so tempting to wait to see what they come out with next, but if there is a style that has made your heart skip a beat, you can be confident that nothing else will compare, and you don’t want wait until it’s too late!
2. Because each dress is made by hand and not mass produced in a factory, production can take up to 6 months. Make sure you allow plenty of time before your big day to place your order for your wedding dress. Rushes are available for brides with a shorter time frame, but it’s going to cost you. If you have said yes to the dress, order your dress now to reserve your spot in line for one of their talented artisans to make your dream dress. This will eliminate so much stress before your big day - we promise!
3. If you have enough time before your wedding, and have the patience of a saint to wait for the new collection to debut, check out our website and our social media channels for the announcement of the Wild Heart collection trunk shows. This will be your one and only opportunity to see the entire collection as well as receive 10% off your gown. Discounts are only offered to brides in attendance of a trunk show, and trunk shows only happen once a year. As you can imagine, the spots will book up fast. Wild Heart trunk shows won’t take place until the fall, so you have plenty of time to clear your calendar, call your BFFs and get your spot reserved!
