Mara Hoffman Second Bridal Offering

February 24, 2015

I got so much good advice after I fist got engaged and before I really dove into planning and decision making. One pearl of wisdom was, "When you find your dress, stop looking at others." So smart. I spent a good amount of time on Pinterest adding dresses that I thought looked like me or fit the vision I was going for to a secret board before going to try on gowns. Unlike some of the brides on Say Yes to the Dress, I didn't try on 100+ dresses or spend and exhaustive amount of time going to as many bridal salons as possible. My dress was at the third place I went to and even though I didn't have a huge emotional moment over it I just knew it was perfect - both for my body and for the venue...


So – I felt like I had to preface this post with saying that I’m not going back on my dress decision! I did stop looking (and pinning, and researching) other dresses and designers once I “said yes to the dress” and after my first fitting a few weeks ago I feel even more sure about my choice. But, Mara Hoffman recently launched her second collection of wedding gowns and it felt wrong not to share the stunning images of the gorgeous dresses. Mara “Devotional Collection” of bridal pieces are only available through her site.

True to her aesthetic, the collection has a boho feel that pulls inspiration from nature. Each piece is named after a goddess (I’m particularly loving the Feya Beaded Gown) and prices range from $550 and $2,200. Pretty “affordable” when you compare them to the bridal collections from other designers. I’m not a boho girl myself (I just consider myself a hippie wannabe during music festival season) but if I was at the beginning of my wedding dress search I think there are a few of the Mara styles I’d want to try…the flowy silhouettes and intricate but unfussy detailing is definitely my style.

Maybe some of you future brides-to-be or recently engaged gals out there can test drive some of the pieces in the Devotional Collection and tell us how they look and feel in person. I have a feeling that they are just as etherial and goddess like on as they look online and in the campaign images…
