For the Rivini Fall 2013 bridal collection, Canadian designer Rita Vinieris was inspired by a stay at The Ice Hotel—and it showed. Her elegant and sophisticated Fall 2013 collection featured frosty beaded and crystal details and plenty of neck and arm coverage (think high necklines and billowy cap sleeves). One particularly noteworthy gown from the collection had a breathtaking blouse top that was beaded to look like an intricate frost pattern with just a subtle hint of blue. Besides ornate details and sleeves, another key component of the Rivini Fall 2013 collection was lace. The traditional bridal fabric was given an update with angular silhouettes and sexy shapes (including thigh-high slits!). Speaking of showing some leg, Rita Vinieris also included two short dresses as part of the Rivini Fall 2013 collection. Either the ivory lace mini with a gorgeous draped back or the pretty dove grey ruffled number would be perfect for a less-traditional bride or as a second dress option. Classic brides will also find something to please among the Rivini Fall 2013 collection: a sleek strapless mermaid gown with a silver beaded belt and a modern dress with layers and layers of silk spring to mind. From sassy short dresses to sweeping gowns, the Rivini Fall 2013 collection had it all.
