Designer Spotlight: Kelsey Genna

Happy Friday to one and all! I am always on the lookout for fabulous bridal designers so when I landed on Kelsey Genna’s portfolio, it truly made my day! Her gorgeous bohemian line, inspired by flowers, is unique, feminine and absolutely perfect for the romantic bride.

This New Zealand designer started her business at the tender age of 16, graduated with a Bachelor of Fashion at 18, then launched her first bridal collection when she was only 21. That was just two years ago! With the amazing work she has already done, I am excited to see what the future holds for this talented entrepreneur.

Her online boutique sells to brides all over the world and she has talked about finding ways to keep her line accessible to brides (her dresses are currently priced between $650-$1,300 USD) as “weddings are so expensive enough as it is…” I couldn’t agree more!

Here is a selection of looks I adore from both the 2013 and 2014 Kelsey Genna Bridal Collections.

  3. Not only are these dresses so lovely, but I really admire that she creates such a range of styles, not just variations on a theme. I also adore her philosophy and goal of keeping these beauties in a reasonable price range! And all this at such a young age! Thanks for introducing me to Kelsey Genna’s work!

    Brides to be, save yourself a lot of trouble and disappointment ! Keep your dreams and your money and run far, far away from Kelsey / The Flower Bride. The pictures of the dresses are beautiful, but you will receive a *very* poorly made copy, so ridiculous you might not even want to wear it for Halloween. Been there ! So much disrespect is truly appalling… Without the help of a real seamstress who agreed to make a brand new dress for me three weeks before my wedding I would have had nothing to wear…
    As you can imagine it is a bride’s nightmare…

  9. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard
    to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads very fast for me on Internet explorer.

    Exceptional Blog!
