Fashion Friday: Theia Bridal

The THEIA Spring 2018 collection was inspired by pearls. Their unique properties imbue strength of spirit, integrity, and purity, along with the calming effect of balancing our karma.

She said she was fascinated by the subtle colors in their opalescence, from barely there blues abd soft blush pinks, to touches of grey swirling inside the ivory and whites of their nacre.

They continue to serve their THEIA bride and her relaxed carefree style with cotton guipure laces patchworked together and simple body higging crepes with flowing sleeves. Her whimsy is capture in hand cut stain floral applique gowns and bodices. and Point d'Esprit and silk organza cascading ruffles.

They created several gowns with interchangeable slip linings, allowing brides to choose between classic ivory, blush, cloud blue, or nude.

As the bride evolves, they added a dash of sophistication, with off-the-shoulder Alecon lace and crepe gowns with crystal garland wrapping the shoulders. Our signature hand beaded gowns are rich with pearl embroidery, some off set with subtle color linings.
