Anne Barge has been a top name in bridal for nearly 20 years. Her eponymous Atlanta-based company, now with Shawne Jacobs at the helm, just opened an appointment-only atelier. Known for her feminine, classic style, Barge reveals this season’s most in-demand bridal trends:
“Think Dior bows,” Barge says. “Very couture, sophisticated, and strategically placed. There’s nothing ‘little girl’ about them.”
“Overskirts have always been a glamorous accessory, but they are definitely on-trend now—especially when they’re removable, so they provide an easy 2-in-1 to go from the ceremony to dancing at the reception,” Barge says.
“The red carpet influences bridal so directly, and we’re seeing that in a very sophisticated and confident way with longer sleeves. We call it ‘modern modesty,’” Barge says. 120 Interstate N. Parkway, Suite 404, 404-873-8070, annebarge.com
