Describe your store in three words
Intimate, Elegant, attention to detail

On Average, how many months (or even years?) before her wedding does a future bride start shopping for her dress?
Typically a bride will start shopping for a wedding gown about a year before her wedding. It is always important to start early so there is plenty of time to order the gown and get the needed alterations before her big day.

Does she usually know exactly what she wants or does she come in with no idea in her mind?
Most of the time our brides have an idea of what they think they what. But it is our challenge to style them in what will make them look gorgeous on their wedding day. Dressing a brides character is what we strive to do ensuring she wears the gown not, the gown wears her. We are known for styling our ladies. 90 percent of the time brides leave with a completely different style of gown than they originally had. They leave feeling thrilled and […]

The perfect wedding dress for each body type

By |November 18th, 2013|

Ballgown, mermaid, trumpet, A-line, empire, natural waist, dropped waist… there are so many shapes and forms when it comes to wedding dresses, but not necessarily every cut flatters every figure.

Here are a few tips from us for finding the right dress for you body type.

If you are pear shaped

If you have big hips or a pear shaped body, you could either look for a classic A-line silhouette or a natural waistline that flows away from the hips. But if you want to emphasize on your curves, you could also choose a mermaid gown.

Our pick:

 
A natural waistline and a ruffled skirt to draw attention away from the hips:  Style 77956
If you want to highlight your hips, this beaded mermaid gown is a great choice:  Style CT105.
 

If you are petite

A strapless mermaid or trumpet gown is perfect for petites. You can also go for a style with a waistline above the natural waist, since it will make you appear longer.

Avoid dropped waist or big ballgowns;  you don’t want to disappear in your dress.

Our pick:
A strapless or one-shoulder mermaid gown is a great option for a petite girl: Style AK99
This high waistline will make a short body appear taller: Style EK992
 

If you are plus sized

Diagonal pleads along the waist have a slimming effect are a great choice for curvier bodies. Classic A-lines or ballgowns are also a good option.

Our pick:
Classic A-line with a sweetheart neckline and slimming pleads: Style EK977
A great ballgown with lace details and illusion neckline: Style EK967
If you are busty

Choose a V- or neckline or halter gown to show some cleavage. Don’t cover your chest, it will make you look even bustier.
A great option for bigger busts: Style AK80
 

If you are small chested

A sweetheart neckline […]

An extravagant engagement and a secret wedding

By |October 24th, 2013|

Wow, there’s been big celebrity wedding news this week!

The biggest news, without doubt: Kim Kardashian is going to be a bride once again. What a proposal by Kanye! He went all out, renting a baseball stadium and hiring an 50-man orchestra.

 

And they sure weren’t shy about sharing their news: Kim tweeted a picture of her 15 karat engagement ring.

With an engagement this big, we are wondering how big the wedding will be. And of course, how her dress(es) will be like.

 

In other celebrity news: Kelly Clarkson said I do over the weekend. She was for sure more private than Kim and Kanye; it was a secret wedding and the world only found out on Monday, when she tweeted a picture of her wedding. She looked gorgeous in her long sleeve lace gown.

She recently shared the cutest video of her wedding. So romantic! And what a perfect location!

Keeping the Bride Stress Free

By |October 18th, 2013|

This article was written by our guest blogger Morgan Gray. She is the maid of honor at her sister’s upcoming wedding and is giving very helpful advise on how to lower the stress lever of a bride-to be.
By Morgan Gray
Weddings are beautiful days, and no matter how much planning goes on, there is sure to be stress that comes with the event for the bride, the groom, the maid of honor, the best man – you name it. But if you’re the maid of honor, it’s your job to help keep the bride cool, calm, and collected. The main thing I learned from my first wedding party experience: be prepared. Here’s some advice to help keep the bride relaxed and as stress free as you can.

Before the Wedding Day

Make sure the bride gets to relax! After all, the bride has a lot that she’s going to be doing: invitations, figuring out the caterer, her dress, the venue – the list is endless. That’s where a maid of honor comes in, to help however she is needed. What I recommend is setting up a coffee or lunch date where the two of you will meet. Whether that is weekly, bi-weekly, or every month, it helps to have some scheduled time to chat and for the bride to talk with her best friend. Yes, that may turn into venting time, but that can also help the two of you figure out problem areas and what you can do to help.

 

I know that I ended up scheduling a lot of what the bridesmaids did, and a lot to do with when people were coming in and where they would stay. If the reception hall doesn’t have a hotel […]

Keep it simple or make a statement?

By |September 18th, 2013|

Choosing your perfect wedding dress is no easy task. So many styles,  so many fabrics, so many beautiful gowns. Where to begin?

Are you the kind of bride who knows exactly how her dress will look like since the age of 7, or do you have no idea whatsoever?

Are you looking for a classic, elegant look? Do want to keep it clean and simple? Or do you want to make a fashion statement and wear a gown that nobody will ever forget?

To answer these questions, you have to keep in mind that what’s most important is that you feel comfortable in your dress and that you feel like yourself. If you usually dress simple, you will probably feel uncomfortable and “off” wearing a statement piece.

If your friends are used to seeing you in the most fashionable clothes, they will probably expect you to wear something extravagant at your wedding.

You also need to know how to accessorize. With a simple gown, you can either choose minimalistic accessories, but you could also combine your dress with a statement piece of jewelry, headpiece or add an interesting belt.

If you choose a more elaborated dress, the accessories you choose should not be a distraction from the dress.

Here a a few choices for each look.

If you want to keep it simple:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 Bouquet Style #AK97: A strapless organza gown with a sweetheart neckline. If you find it too simple, you can add a beaded or colored belt to it.
 

Style EK996. An organza drop waist gown, with a sweetheart neckline. You can also add a belt or this little lace bolero jacket.
This champagne satin gown is simple and so elegant, and should be combined with minimal accessories. Also available in white or ivory
