Real Wedding: Jett & Ryan

Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.
This dress was the first dress I tried on. The sweetheart top and ethereal layers of chiffon screamed 1950s to me, and I knew with a short veil it was the perfect look.

What were the most important details to pulling off your dream wedding?
Hiring a killer team of vendors! From our DJ to our videographers to our florist, everyone we worked with totally blew us away with their talent and helped us pull off our epic wedding. Also, if it’s in your budget, hire a wedding planner. My awesome planner, Amber, from ‘The Love Riot’ did all of the leg-work (except for the really important jobs, like cake tasting) and helped me have a truly carefree bride experience.

What was the most memorable moment?

Ryan and I jumping in Frank Sinatra’s piano shaped pool (him in his suit, me in my dress) at the end of the night. We had originally decided we weren’t going to do it because I didn’t want to ruin my dress. But once we were in the moment, we just went for it!

If you could give future brides any advice, what would it be?

Go into your dress shopping with an open mind! I went in thinking I wanted a tea-length, long-sleeved lace dress and I ended up with a strapless gown. Also, keep dress accessories in mind. I loved the dress and I knew I didn’t want a ton of bling, but the rhinestones on the ‘Bailey’ sash gave my look the perfect amount of sparkle to complement my bridal ensemble!

Real Wedding: Paulina & David

Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.
I chose the “Cascade” gown by Sarah Seven. I wanted something very natural and flowy, but also very romantic. It was so fitting to our location and overall design.

What were the most important details to pulling off your dream wedding?
1. Flowers! Since the venue landscape was so natural and green, we needed a pop of color. 2. Lighting! Bistro lighting was a must in order to create a more romatic vibe. Oh and lets not forget candles!

What was the most memorable moment?
The first look was hands down the most memorable moment for me. It was a moment shared between just us to take in everything that was about to happen.

If you could give future brides any advice, what would it be?
Enjoy the planning process as much as possible. Family will have their say about certain details, but just remember that this is a representation of you and your fiance, no one else. Have fun with it! I miss it already!

Announcing Our Very Own Collection: The Lovely One

We have been bursting to the brim with excitement about our latest project, and we are so happy to be able to finally share it with all of you! Since opening our doors in 2010, we have seen so many wonderful brides and have listened to everything they said about what they are looking for in a gown. Realizing that we had an opportunity to create some pieces that we were missing from the shop, we decided to dream up our own collection specifically for the Lovely bride and we’re calling it The Lovely One.  We started Lovely four years ago with the goal to provide the cool, laid-back bride with gowns that she couldn’t find anywhere else and an experience unlike any other, and now with The Lovely One collection we can bring you exclusive styles that are so special, so boho-chic, so on par with our original idea of what our indie brides would wear. These new gowns will only be available at Lovely shops across the country, and we are so excited to hear what you think of our first ever in-house collection!
