You have to love a bride who is willing to add some fashion sense to her bridal attire. Not everyone can pull off the low waisted blouson dress, but Orso, shot by the talented Leigh Miller, looks fab in hers. Love that she added some throw back finger waves to her hair so that her look is both modern and glamourous. We think you’ll see a lot more of this silhouette in the future since it has such a casual elegance.
You know mama loves a great wedding dress photo, but while trolling for one today, I found these amazing pictures of Stacie and Geoff. Every once in awhile, you come across an amazing engagement photo session that just makes your heart leap and just a little bit, you want to say ‘invite me to your wedding…I know I don’t know you but I can already tell it will be fantastic’. These pics by the husband and wife super-duo, of Angie and Matt Sloan (aka Sloan Photographers) are pretty much frame-able as artwork. Fly these photographers out to your weddings my friends…photos like these would be well worth it!
I mean come on…is this dress BE-YOND or what. The ruffles are so sweet and romantic, but Jana still manages to look sophisticated somehow. And I am lovin’ a sleeve lately. It is so demure and classy. I would write more, but I’m kind of speechless and think the gorge photos by Sheena Jibson speak for themselves anyway. I’ll just go turn red with jealousy like those amazing bushes Sheena captured in her Lovely photos.
How gorge is this off the shoulder look from Vennessa and John’s wedding, shot by One Love Photo? It looks so chic in photos b/c it really frames her face and back…can also hide some jiggly bits although doesn’t look like Vennessa has any. What would be really cool though is if you could remove it for the reception so you could ‘throw your hands up in the ai-er’ while dancing. Maybe we’ll make something cool like that for the store. Like a shrug that meets a shawl. A shrawl. Or a Shug.
Lovely to meet you all. We are embarking on a journey soon…to add another dimension to the bridal gown shopping experience. We want a store that catches up to all of the wonderful changes that are happening in the world! We will entice you D.I.Y brides to own your dress shopping experience. Walk-ins welcome with as many try-ons as you want…Appointments optional! And to give you bridechillas a relaxed, fun, and inspirational shopping environment that rivals your favorite boutiques. A bridal store should be your favorite place to be, not a dreaded place to be! And lastly but very importantly, to give you all of the style of a lovely wedding gown without having to sell your first born. No gown will be over $5,000 and most will be in the $2,000 range, some as low as $695! So whether you’re a bride on a budget or a bride with no budget…who is doing a couple of changes (you know who you are) we’ll have options for you!
Essentially, we are creating a bridal store that makes you feel like this.
