Magnificent Mothers

What an exciting time for a Mom! Your child is engaged to be married and you get to spend quality time with them planning their big day. Moms always have a lot on their plate during this hectic time, and often forget about their ensemble. Here at Abbott’s Bridal and Formalwear, we believe the Moms should look fabulous! We carry many designers to help you feel beautiful, confident, and most of all comfortable for the long day.

One request we hear quite often is, “I don’t want to look matronly”. We do not blame you! If you have a fun, fresh style why would you want to wear a tailored dress with a jacket? Designers such as Cameron Blake, Montage, Social Occasions, or MGNY by Mori Lee would be perfect for you! They design gowns for the fashionista Mom, incorporating glamorous embellishments, delicate lace, and illusion backlines. We adore these lines because they really believe that moms deserve to stand out amongst all the other guests.

Another line we have come to love is by Jasmine Bridals. They have a couple different branches: Jade, Jade Couture, and Jasmine Black Label. Jasmine is a great company to go to if you might be looking for a specific color. They offer a wide selection from Celadon to Peach. They also carry multiple different fabrics, which can play a big part in choosing a gown to wear all day. Normal ordering time applies for this company, we recommend leaving about 16 weeks lead time for your gown to come in.

Let’s say you are looking for more of that tailored, classic look. Daymor Couture is the designer for you! Their fabrication is absolutely impeccable. Using a crepe material mixed with very delicate sheer chiffon and rhinestones, these gowns are sure to WOW! Usually, these gowns do come with a jacket, which looks great in pictures. For after the ceremony and pictures however, you have the wonderful option of taking the jacket off and relaxing for the party. This company is great for shipping time as they are ready to wear only, giving you the relief that order time would not be an issue.

Are you a mom where comfort is the name of the game? Look no further than Damianou, Soulmates, and our newest line Ursula of Switzerland. With a forgiving stretch lace design normally accompanied by a jacket, these gowns are unmatched in comfort. These designers also offer a great selection of color, as well as great shipping time. Damianou uses a beautifully crafted lace fabric that has a hint of metallic shine throughout the material. Soulmates are made from 100% silk for added comfort, and style. They also adorn their gowns with simplistic beading to compliment the lace type patterns. Ursula uses a very unique sequined lace for most of their collection. The tone on tone shine is just stunning in truly any color. Ursula also offers styles in a delicate chiffon fabric with vintage rhinestone accents. This collection is very versatile and can work for any mom. We are very excited to have our customers try on our newest line!

We love helping moms find a gown for this extra special day. You deserve to look and feel your best! Our inventory boasts a large variety of different styles for every shape and size. Remember, leave yourself enough time to look around and try on multiple styles. Normal ordering time is 16 weeks, and we also prefer starting alterations at least a month prior. We invite you in to take a look and try on some fabulous gowns by our elite group of designers!

Prom Princess

When shopping for a Prom dress, girls have the desire of wanting to be noticed on that special night. Which dress is really going to stand out amongst the crowd? What can I wear that will be unforgettable? Girls want to make a statement and sparkle in the pictures that they will keep forever. One way you could achieve these goals: go for the Ball Gown!

Ball gowns have a way of setting you apart from all of your peers. They are bold, big, and usually heavily embellished. This really gives the Cinderella feel as you sashay into the venue. Eye catching beads or a bold printed skirt are sure to be crowd pleasers. Why not try a two piece ball gown? Something new and daring will be remembered. You can always go for brighter colors as well, like neon green or a toxic orange. Have fun when picking your gown color, dare to be different!

When shopping for a strapless ball gown, looking for one that has a corset back is always beneficial. Corset backs will give you all the support you are going to need throughout the night. Being able to tie your gown to the perfect tightness to have comfort and assurance that you will not have to tug on it is ideal. Plus, this style is sure to show off your curves, even though you are in a fuller skirt.

There is a certain feeling girls get when they try these gowns on. The feeling of being a princess, the bell of the ball! There are only a few chances a girl gets in her lifetime to wear something so extravagant, why not Prom? The new styles being shown for this coming year are impeccable, and we are going to be receiving ball gowns galore! Featured in this blog are some of our favorites from the 2016 Mori Lee Paparazzi Prom collection. Be bold, and go big this year girls!

Fall-ing in Love

FALL WEDDING BLOG 2fall wedding blog 5

Fall is one of those seasons you can’t help but fall in love with. From the cool crisp weather, football games and of course pumpkin spice- well everything, autumn seems to lift everyone’s mood. As a bride, it is amazing to see the ideas that you can come about by simply using “fall” as your theme. It is not just pumpkins and hayrides that this magical season boasts, but also fall’s natural glory such as the colors, acorns and leaves.

Imagine THE dress. From gowns that have beautiful soft lace to stunning embellishments, it’s amazing how well it can coordinate with your fall wedding. Think how stunning it would be to have a beautiful ivory dress that whispers a hue of blush, light gold or even a sultry mocha tone. There are so many options to try that will truly fit in perfectly within the season. Abbott’s Bridal carries a great selection of gowns that come in all of these different shades, and then some!

Fall out of old traditions and spice up your reception by shocking your guests with unforgettable treats. Surprise them with a pie or smore’s bar; which you can incorporate many different flavors depending on your preference. Another great trend that will stand out and be extraordinary is providing your guests with hot apple cider accompanied with a delicious cider donut. Your guests will not only fall in love with your treats but by having these delectable’s they will fall in love with your wedding!

The best part about having a fall wedding is that there are countless color options. Here at Abbott’s Bridal we’ve seen many beautiful weddings that incorporate so many beautiful colors. A fan favorite, especially for this year, is Marsala. We cannot wait to see how you design your wedding! For inspiration you can follow us on our web page, Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram for the latest trends on autumn weddings. Happy planning!

Curvy Couture

One of the most frequent phone calls we get here at Abbott’s is “Do you have plus size gowns?” The answer is YES! We carry two great full figure designers, Bonny Unforgettable and Mori Lee Julietta, as well as various sizes from our other top designers. Bonny and Mori Lee offer a wide selection of silhouettes and styles to suit any curvaceous bride’s needs.

Abbott’s Bridal always aims to satisfy every customer that comes in for an appointment. By carrying lines like Unforgettable and Julietta we know there is something for every shape and size to try on here. Generally we always have 25+ plus size pieces on hand to choose from, giving curvy brides a nice selection to try.

Every bride is not a size zero, that’s a given! But who says a size twenty can’t wear a mermaid or fit-n-flare? You totally can! Picking a gown with a ruched bodice or an asymmetrical design would be perfect to flatter your curves. Choosing a fitted gown with a corset tie back is ideal given that corsets work to accentuate every curve in the most flattering way. Corsets also give the gown the utmost support if you are looking for strapless, taking all of your worries away about fidgeting with it all night long.

Ball gowns and A-line styles are very popular for women looking to accentuate their waistline. Finding this style that hits at the small of your waist is great if you are looking to disguise your hips but still embrace your figure. Abbott’s Bridal recommends trying these two styles on, even if it is not what you had in mind. They are sure to surprise you!

Every bride usually has a look in mind when she starts to shop for a wedding gown. Abbott’s believes in trying on all different silhouettes and styles because you never know how a gown will look until it is on your body. Trying on gowns that may be outside your comfort zone is a good thing! You won’t love everything you try on, but that is the process that helps you find “The One”!
