Bridal fashion trends do change! Over the years.......We went many years with high necklines and long bulky ballooning sleeves to strapless wedding dresses.
As less weddings occurred in Churches, where religious dress codes were enforced, a Bride was instructed by her Clergy coverage and modesty for a bride was a must. This is still true with various Religious groups and will never change and must be respected.
As trends relaxed, and wedding venues are now being held inside barns to beaches, art galleries, parks, and many other creative venues with an Officiant presiding, Brides backed off from sleeves on their wedding dresses.
I love fashion, and I love wedding dresses! That also means I love to create an individual look for all my brides!
As the Owner, and the Buyer of my Bridal Boutique, Collezione Fortuna Fashion Boutique and Bridals, located on Lincoln Bet. 5th. and 6th., Carmel-by-the-Sea,CA 93921, I see a lot of wedding dresses, each individual in their beauty. Selecting each one can be a challenge, however, I know what I want in my boutique and I do not stop looking until I find it.
What the Bridal Fashion Trend for 2014, 2015 and beyond is the return of SLEEVES. This is fabulous for Brides seeking coverage for their arms in sheer tulle, lace, so lightweight, not our Mother's wedding dresses! With the Winter weddings, these dresses are ideal! They have flair, European Elegance, glamour and they are gorgeous..don't you think???
Here are some styles that already have arrived and will be available soon for Spring 2015 and we are thrilled to bring these new collections to you!
The Collections shown are from the San Patrick(Pronovias) Bridal Fashion Group, and CB Couture, Casablanca Bridal's Couture group. Price range of both start at $1800 to $3000. Exclusively available at our BOUTIQUE in Carmel-by-the-Sea,CA 93921 ONLY!
Call to set up your appointment (831)626-1287 to view our wonderful collections here locally!
Amy and Gerardo selected the most perfect setting for their wedding on September 9, 2014 at Holman Ranch, Carmel Valley,CA.
Overlooking the majestic scenery for the exchange of their wedding vows, guest arrived in grandeur for their wedding.
I met with Amy and her Bridesmaids 3 month prior to her wedding date, where she said "YES" to her dress, and everything was selected to achieve an elegant beautiful palette of colors for her wedding. Time was an essence and all the details fell into place without a hitch!
Amy selected a beautiful strapless corset tulle and satin ballgown with sequins, beads, seeded pearls in a sweetheart neckline by our own Private Label Collection, COLLEZIONE FORTUNA, exclusively found at our bridal boutique. She immediately "fell in love" with her dress and it made her look and feel like a PRINCESS!! Saying "YES" to her dress was easy!
Her Bridesmaids, including her Maid of Honor wore black chiffon evening dresses with matching shawls by Bill Levcoff.
The Bride and the Bridal Party had a very elegant look for an evening wedding at Holman Ranch. A lot of pressure was taken off Amy by shopping locally with us.
Congratulations AMY and Gerardo and we wish you a beautiful future together!
We thank MANUEL ORTEGA PHOTOGRAPHY for allowing us the use of his beautiful images!!

A wedding in Carmel Valley.....
Celebrated their wedding vows on July 19, 2014 on a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon at the "Rancho Canada Golf and Country Club" in Carmel Valley, California, 93953 , along with their families and intimate friends and relatives present to witness the love of two families becoming one.
After the exchange of wedding vows, the wine flowed, and champagne, everyone sat down to enjoy a wonderful dinner with a reception following. It was also a reunion of families and the occasion was enjoyed by everyone.
Michelle and Michael began planning their wedding approximately one year prior to their wedding date and there was a lot of planning to be done!
Michelle scheduled her appointment with Collezione Fortuna Fashion Boutique and Bridals about 9 months before her wedding and we went thru several pictures, designs, and she started trying on several styles until she said "YES" to a gorgeous strapless butter satin gown with beads, pearls, and embroidery by "DIAMOND." The dress made her shine ! Her dress was everything she had dreamed about. It was classic, timeless, elegant...just perfect!
Here is Michelle's TESTIMONIAL I would like to share:
of all, I would like to THANK YOU Cathy for making my day so special!
My wedding day would not have been the same if I shopped at any other
Bridal Boutique. If I wanted to try on 400 dress in one day, you would
not have stopped me. You were very determined to find the "PERFECT"
dress for me. You really listened to the "have to have" details I
explained and knew exactly where to find dresses with those EXACT
I was lucky that I was able to "friend" you on Facebook and
look at some styles you had in stock. That helped me figure out what I
wanted. I was able to message you and ask questions, you even sent me
pictures of dresses that were ordered and being shipped. I was amazed
when I walked into the boutique, no possible way you could have all your
dresses on Facebook! These women truly have to go in the boutique to
see your selection. FABULOUS! Whether it is "in-style" or "chic" or
"vintage" or YOU NAME it, she has got it. Thank you Collezione Fortuna, THANK YOU!
A few days after their wedding, the Bride and Groom went on their honeymoon in Jamaica, a wonderful tropical paradise..........!
Thank you for trusting us with the most important purchase of your lifetime, your wedding dress, and I was very happy that your experience at Collezione Fortuna was a positive special one!
Congratulations to Michelle and Michael and may you always share the special memories of your wedding day in the years to come!
I would like to say "thank you" to Manuel Ortega, Manuel Ortega Photography, www.manuelortegaphoto.com, for the use of his talents and images.
Ryann and Mark.......
Exchanged their wedding VOWS on
July, 2013 at the Monterey Peninsula Country Club in Pebble Beach, CA
surrounded by their loving families and intimate friends.
It turned out to be a beautiful Summer day just the perfect setting for a wedding!
Ryann , booked her bridal
appointment approximately a year before her wedding date was set at Collezione Fortuna Fashion Boutique and Bridals, located in the Su Vecino Courtyard, Lincoln bet. 5th. and 6th., Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA.
On the day of her Bridal appointment, she was joined by her Mother, and future Mother-in-law to share her
"bridal" experience, and found out we were her Bridal Salon of choice in the area to purchase her wedding dress and accessories!
Ryann tried on 3 dresses, and 3 dresses only, and said "YES" to an elegant strapless European Satin wedding dress with a sweetheart neckline and ruching by "Mikaella" out of Canada.
Her dress stated " European Elegance" and fit her gorgeous figure perfectly! Accessories, and her veil were selected to "marry" the entire ensemble, and made a complete stunning statement to her perfect wedding dress selected.
Congratulations to Ryann and Mark and may you both share a wonderful future together! You are indeed a special couple!
I would like to extend a special "thank you" to Michael Steelman, Mike Steelman Photography, http://mikesteelman.com/, for his talents and contributions of his images on this Blog.

Stephanie and Marek celebrated their wedding on Saturday, June 7, 2014.
After 2 years of careful planning, their wedding vows were exchanged at Tarpy's in Monterey, CA 93940, with an intimate dinner reception following their ceremony.
Stephanie's gorgeous dress was from Collezione Fortuna Fashion Boutique and Bridals, out of Silk Chiffon, with Chantilly Lace overlay covered with pearls and crystals. It did not take long for the Bride to say "yes" to her gorgeous wedding dress. The Bride and Groom Honeymooned in the Domenican Republic sharing a relaxing atmosphere, with beautiful beaches, sunrises and sunset... and....pure romance! Congratulations to Stephanie and Marek!! May you share many years of luck, love and happiness in the years to come!
THE RETURN OF THE SLEEVE , Illusion Veil and MORE ...........
As we all know,
Europe has always been the force in Fashion influence. Bridal is one area that is the strongest.
For 2015 Bridal Season, like it or not, laces prevail, and you will see more Wedding Dresses with Sleeves, necklines with Illusion Veil with beading, ballgowns, and open back styles., and including wider straps on the dresses.
Strapless wedding dresses have prevailed in the past, not leaving options for Brides who desire more coverage. We also deal with Religious and Cultural values which need to be respected. ( More about that in another BLOG!)
With these looks, you will see a more traditional appearance in Bridal Gowns that are fashion forward, elegant, and classy.
Here are some of my favorites that have hit the runway and will be featured at Collezione Fortuna Fashion Boutique and Bridals in the months to come..so get ready!
It's time to "step out of the box" and try something new!
Darcie and Tony's beautiful wedding took place on November 23, 2013 at
the Perry House overlooking Monterey Bay. The weather was perfect
making it a beautiful setting for their wedding. It was my pleasure to
attend and share their special moment with them.
The Bride was beaming the "glow" of happiness and there was excitement in the air on November 23, 2013.
I met with Darcie at my bridal boutique, Collezione Fortuna Fashion
Boutique and Bridals several months before her wedding date. With a special dress in mind in the color "blush", which is a soft rose/beige
color, I found the dress for her. On the day of her
appointment, a comparable dress by another Bridal Couture company
arrived in the color ivory. Darcie tried it on and it looked absolutely gorgeous,
however, since she had the blush colored dress on her mind, I
encouraged her to try the dress on just to be sure, before any decisions where to be made on her selection and in no doubt, she
said "yes" to the blush colored silky organza over satin bridal gown with a sweetheart
neckline inspired by a well known designer made by "Allure Couture". She did not want to take the dress off at her appointment and was forever thankful I encouraged her to try the dress on again!
Darcie came dancing out of the
dressing room saying "yes" to the dress ! The dress indeed complimented
her figure, and made her feel like a "beautiful Princess!"
The Bride was escorted by her Father, John down the stairs of the Victorian backdrop of the Perry House. The exchange of
the wedding vows, were personally written by the Bride and Groom stirred emotion in everyone. There were tears of joy in everyone's
eyes which words could not express. The exchange of wedding vows was
performed by Darcie's best friend, Katie Raquel did a wonderful presentation.
The Bridesmaids wore elegant black cocktail dresses, which look beautiful against Darcie's blush colored wedding dress. The flower girls dresses were white accented with a blush pink belt. The flowers were in a blush pink, ivory, peach tone which were done by Melody at "Fleurish Floral Designs", and brought the color palette together of Darcie's wedding theme colors beautifully! Peri Basseri of "Big Time Video" did an amazing job of the videos of the wedding. The Professional Photography was done by "Love Life Studios." Richard, the Event Coordinator at the Perry House made certain the day of the event went smoothly! Freedom Bakery baked the most delicious wedding cake. One piece was not enough. The food the wine, the candy table, everything was excellent!
After dinner, everyone put on their dancing shoes, and took pictures in the Photobooth.
It was the most beautiful wedding I attended.
Everyone had a wonderful time and it was a wonderful day to remember by everyone!
Congratulations to Darcie and Tony! Wishing you both tons of love, luck, and happiness in the years to come!
A Wedding to be remembered....
Michele and Jared were married June 22, 2013 . Their wedding was held on the Old Delta Queen which is docked in port on the Sacramento River which gave a "turn of the Century" theme to their wedding.
Michele selected a beautiful oyster satin wedding dress with floral beaded appliques and hand crafted roses out of the same fabric by our own , "Collezione Fortuna" bridal gown line exclusively found at our bridal boutique in Carmel-by-the-Sea. The bride attended her appointment accompanied by her Mother, Mary, and her 3 aunts. The wedding dress was a perfect fit for the bride, and she could not help but say "yes" to it and was able to make the most important purchase of her lifetime and take it home with her! It was appropriate for her venue on the Delta King too!
Her color theme was purple, lavender, and green and they made a fabulous combination for her flowers, Bridesmaids dresses, and table settings.
The Bride's wedding shoes were a "work of art" decorated by hand by the Bride with pearls and an beads giving these gorgeous shoes flair and uniqueness.
Wedding Vows were exchanged with family and friends present. As the festivities progressed smoothly, the wedding reception moved into the PADDLEWHEEL ROOM on the Delta Queen where everyone had a grand dinner, danced, cut the cake, and yes, there were fireworks too!
It was a beautiful wedding to be remembered!
I want to thank the Bride's Mother, Mary Erner, and the Photographer Carissa Rachelle Photography for sharing images of Michele and Jared's wedding!

We have been published in "Ruffledblog.com."!!
I met with Christine Cater of Christine Cater and Events a few months ago, and the search was for a unique, whimsical wedding dress for a photoshoot at Carmel Valley Ranch.
We met with the model for a fitting and we voted on a gorgeous blush and ivory hand beaded organza wedding dress by the "House of WU". The dress was made out of silk organza with soft layered pleating. All the bead work on the dress was sewn by hand and fit the color theme of orchids, greens, pinks, peach and other pastels on the color palette. All these colors together with this amazing wedding dress by Collezione Fortuna Fashion Boutique and Bridals in Carmel-by the- Sea,CA made a beautiful "marriage" .
I am thrilled to share the images with you!
Don't you love the image shown below? It shows the closeup detailing of the beaded bodice of the dress! It has organza floral petals and beads all detailed to perfection along with the delicate pleating of the layers of the skirt of the wedding dress. The blush color is so romantic!!
