Livi's Designs Bridal

Brides moving away from tradition will have no trouble shopping locally, judging from the alternative collections on the runway at The Aisle, a bridal showcase hosted by Wedding Essentials and produced by Omaha Fashion Week.

The show at the Omaha Design Center, a prelude to OFW’s Fall 2019 season, was a non-conventional bride’s dream with two-piece dresses, jumpsuits, coat dresses and pant suits from a half-dozen local designers and boutiques representing independent designers.

Among the standouts: a luminous silver strapless column dress from Denise Ervin Designs; a vintage-inspired shimmery gold “Game of Thrones” dress by Kelli Bello of Spearmint Vintage at Noa Brides; bell sleeves and romantic lace from Livi’s Designs Bridal; and black — for shock and awe — from Hannah Caroline Couture and Ellynne Bridal, among others.

Perhaps best of all in an age of inclusiveness: Silhouettes that celebrate a woman’s natural beauty, regardless of shape or size.
