Some of you may be appalled that we’ve introduced two piece wedding gowns to our inventory, but it’s not want you think. No- we don’t want your midriff showing on your wedding day, but we do want you to have a gown that fits everything that you could have ever dreamed of. And that is exactly what you can’t achieve with a two-piece gown. You can create a custom gown without the extra zeros at the end of your bill. You have the ability to show off your own style a little bit more than you are able to with a traditional gown. Your bridal style can really be defined by the way you pair the separates too. One look can have sophisticated glam and the other could be defined as fun and beachy.  Really, the perks to a two piece gown are endless.

RELAX

Let’s face it; this day can be extremely stressful and overfilled with emotions. As past brides, we know from experience that everything that may have been planned doesn’t necessarily go as intended.  It is important to remember that your guests won’t remember what centerpieces you had, the flavor of cake you had or the color of your flowers turn out to be. The most important thing is remembering what brought you here on this special day.

REMEMBER

We believe that this is one of the most important but most overlooked pieces of your wedding day. Our most important advice is remembered to breathe. Take a few minutes out of your day to just look around... Remember how you felt during that moment; remember the faces that are surrounding you, remember that this is the first day of the rest of your life. Take it all in because this day will flash before your eyes.

Pantone has released the 2016 colors of the year! That's right, two colors! When it comes to this combination, obsession is an understatement. The colors just call to you. Serenity is a pale romantic blue, easily complimented by rose quartz which is a soft blush tone.

There are not many nights that are more memorable than your prom night. Throughout high school, prom is one of the moments that girls dream about. From the dress to your date, it prepares you for the next chapter in your life. So why not be the best dressed to prom? You’ll want to look back at your pictures and be satisfied with the dress you chose or at least be able to say it was in style back then. As for 2016, let me tell you the colors of the year are definitely in style. Pictured below are complete looks that will wow everybody in the room!

As for us in the bridal industry, we couldn’t be more excited about how truly beautiful these colors are. They bring romance to life with their soothing yet elegant hues.  Of course, we’ve been scheming up the perfect wedding that will be on-trend for 2016. Starting with the dress, because it is the most important of all, right ladies? As we all know blush gowns have been making their way to the runways for the past couple of years. And if luck has anything to do with it, this year they will be more glamorous than ever.  If blush doesn’t necessarily compliment your style we have another, perhaps, bolder option for you. For instance some designers offer a serenity-like hue as a color option. How neat would it be for your “something blue” be your wedding gown! If you are more of a traditional bride, ivory and white look breathtaking when paired with serenity and rose quartz.

Happy Planning!

Tall Brides/Bridesmaids

 

Attention all brides:

bm too short

It's your day. The day you find your wedding dress! It's such a wonderful memory that you will have for the rest of your life. However, as we all know not everyone is the same body type. With that being said if you are above average height you know the challenges you face finding the correct length. You want your dress to be perfect! With this being said, brides who are 5'8” and taller must order extra length.

 

Reasons why:

#1 The majority of all try-on wedding dresses come in a standard length. With this being said, each designer even recommends brides who are taller to order extra length.

#2 Ordering extra length allows you to be able to customize your dress a little bit more. You are able to choose any heel height you would like and feel comfortable wearing. What a tragedy it would be if you found the perfect shoe and it can't be yours just because your wedding dress will be too short.

#3 LESS WORRY! Why have that extra stress with worrying about something that can be controlled.

#4 In the end, it will save you money. If your dress is too short, you will have to have the extra expense of purchasing extra material to make your gown the correct length.

 

For your lovely ladies this is extremely important too. The same rule goes, bridesmaids who are 5'8” and taller must order extra length. As a bride, you want your girls to look good and have proper fitting dresses. They should want to feel confident as well! Obviously, along with you they also have to walk down the aisle.

 

Now that you have ordered your dress in the correct length; its time for alterations. Most wedding dresses will need some work done to them especially a hem. You want to make sure you bring your wedding shoes with you. You want to make sure that your hem is correctly measured to your height. This will allow you to enjoy your experience and really have fun with your dress.
