Pronovias Bridal & Prudence Designs

Last night, I made a quick stop at the BRIDES Magazine Bitten by Love event at the Pronovias showroom in midtown. Pronovias has a stunning selection of ultra-feminine and glamorous gowns and I was particularly taken with all the stylized rosettes incorporated into the dresses and accessories, like the amazing veil/headpiece below:

There were also a select group of vendors showing their work throughout the showroom's five floors, so I took the opportunity to check out the work of New York City florist Prudence Designs.

I had first noticed their arrangements in domino. They use the loveliest vessels and I think their work is perfect for a classic bride who appreciates sleek simplicity. Their work is just as charming in person as it is on the website and the floral designers couldn't be nicer - they are definitely worth adding to your list if you are researching city florists.
