Oh boy do I have a special Designer Spotlight treat for you beautiful people today! Last year I featured the 2013 collection from Island Bridal on the blog. Their collections are definitely made with the destination bride in mind or the one who wants an outdoor ceremony without all the fuss. Today, I have an exclusive Q & A with the design team along with some pics from their latest line.

Island Bridal: A destination wedding is a unique and extraordinary experience. You can choose to marry your soul mate, in any dreamy location, the possibilities are endless.

It’s about fulfilling your fantasy in harmony with nature… It’s about freedom. (Awwwww!!! This just made me smile. 🙂 )
