#dgbride: Blair

February 27, 2020

So we try not to play favorites here at Dress Gallery but man, did our entire staff fall in love with Blair and Easton. They are a couple that you can tell just sincerely loves each other. They’re always playful, giggly, and exuberant when they’re around each other, which made every interaction with them an enjoyable one. They got married on August 31st, 2019 at Noah’s Event Venue in Wichita, KS!

Blair is truly the ultimate fairytale bride; her dream was the type of whimsical, airy romance that love stories are based off of. We were so happy to help her vision come to life with the perfect Morilee gown and complimenting bridesmaids dresses!

Blair planned almost her entire wedding herself, specifically avoiding websites like Pinterest to make sure that her vision stayed authentic and true to what SHE wanted. (What great advice, Blair!) Instead of feeling like her wedding was constantly comparing to others, she felt like she could plan the wedding she wanted without any pressure. A good wedding planning book kept her on schedule, but otherwise let her imagination run wild when it came to the details of her big day. She knew she wanted a light color palette (featuring lilac, silver, and ivory), which fit perfectly with the gorgeous, sunny summer weather!

Can we talk about Blair’s GORGEOUS Morilee bridal gown?! Blair popped in shortly after we got this beauty and she absolutely turned heads in this stunning high neck, fit-and-flare gown. The sexy yet supportive back cut outs keep the look modern and trendy, while also complimenting the silhouette with romantic and timeless lace appliques. Combined with crystal & white beading (to shimmer, not bedazzle!), this dress is perfect for any bride who wants to have a sophisticated yet sexy look on their wedding day.

NO WONDER Easton had tears in his eyes seeing her for the first time! See below for proof:

Blair said the above moment, their first look, was her favorite of the day. “The first moment when we saw each other was breathtaking,” she said. “I replay it in my head over and over. Just being able to kiss and hold each other for a few minutes before the big moment really helped ease my nerves and was so comforting.”

HOW CUTE ARE THEY?! Ahem, moving on…

We were so lucky that Blair trusted us with her bridesmaids dresses as well. We knew she wanted a light, airy color of purple, so choosing the correct shade was imperative for the big day. The girls ended up choosing between two designers – Morilee, like her wedding gown, or Bill Levkoff – and allowed the multiple hues of purple to compliment but not clash with each other. We were so excited she had such an open wedding vision and let us play with different designers & colors to complete her look!

Her mix-and-match bridesmaids dresses were absolutely perfect; their chic, simplistic chiffon dresses were the perfect compliment to Blair’s romantic and lacy gown. Blair and her girls did a great job of picking complimenting styles, while also allowing the focus to be on Blair!

When it came to picking her gown, Blair had a totally different vision in her head when she walked into Dress Gallery.

“My dress wasn’t like anything I pictured in my head, but it’s honestly because I didn’t believe such a beautiful dress could exist. With the beading and the stretchy liner, it was literally the perfect dress,” she said.

Uh, we second that! Even though you can’t see it, Blair’s dress features a stretchy, charmeuse liner, which is the perfect added feature for a long, whirlwind day in it.

“Dress Gallery was the only place I went to and my dress was the second dress I tried on. I tried on one more just to make sure, but I was already sold,” Blair said. Her consultant, Katie, just knew this brand new Morilee gown would be a great contender for her – and we’d only had it a short while before Blair was the first girl to say “Yes!” to this dress.

“The consultants did the best job of finding dresses not only for my bridesmaids, but for me, too!” Blair said. “I just showed her a couple of inspiration photos and she nailed it!” It’s so easy for us to style groups like Blair’s – bring in some inspiration, have an open mind, and we’ll be able to create your wedding vision no problem!

First and foremost, THANK YOU to Chris Cerna Photography for these gorgeous photos – we are STILL swooning over these! Secondly, thank you to the Fry’s for being such a bright and happy couple – we are honored to have been a part of your wedding day.

Romantic & Vintage Shoot ft. Endless Treasures!

January 28, 2020

Here at Dress Gallery, we love the ladies at Endless Treasures. They are absolutely the best at being able to make a bride’s wedding vision come to life. We hear their superlatives from past brides all the time (including Courtney, one of our own consultants!) Their truly unique and expansive collection of items is perfect for any bride with any style. While they have a true focus on romantic, vintage touches, that doesn’t mean they’re limited to create your perfect look. Whether you’re a modern bride wanting edgy, a true traditionalist wanting dreamy romance, or whimsical bohemian complete with macrame, they can turn any space into the reception of your dreams.

That’s why, when they asked us if we’d like the opportunity to come shoot in their warehouse, we jumped at the chance. Not only did it give us a great indoor location for a photoshoot (it’s cold now, folks!), but it also allowed us to really see how large their collections are and how versatile they can be. Plus, it was the first time our sales manager, Jillian, got to step in front of the camera for one of our own creations. Below are some of our favorite looks from classic to trendy!

We love this crepe Morilee gown on Jillian; accented with gorgeous hem lace and a sheer bodice, this dress is the perfect combination of timeless and sexy. The stretch crepe material is comfortable, yet accents the best parts of a woman’s curves, making it a great choice for brides who want to dance on their wedding day! Jillian is framed by two fabulous altar pieces from Endless Treasures – their iron circle or hexagonal wood, complete with LOVE marquee backdrop.

This whimsical Chic Nostalgia gown is destined to make an appearance at an ethereal garden wedding. We love the fluttery attached sleeves and sexy/feminine neckline! Add the fact that this baby can come in a gorgeous silver color and you’re just asking to be a fairy princess in this babe. It’s truly the perfect fit for our mystical manager. This dress is such an effortlessly cool choice!

Harmony, the coolest hippie-chic gown to hit our doors recently, is truly for the wild at heart. This bohemian beauty is perfect for a Midwestern wedding, surrounded by pampas grass and wheat fields. We love that Jillian let out her creative side by playing with the guitar; not only do the aesthetics match, but it truly embodies the down-to-earth vibe that this dress has. Accented with beaded fringe, coiled lace, and a tasseled flutter strap, we are just waiting to see a bride complete this look with fringe and a circle hat!

As always, thanks to Shelby Laine Photography for the beautiful images – you’re our muse, sister friend.

5 Modern Twists on Bridal Traditions

January 17, 2020

When planning a wedding, the majority of advice given to newly engaged brides includes a lot of bridal traditions to decide whether you want to adhere to. Whether you’re a bride who revels in tradition or you decide to do something completely new, we think there’s a great middle ground for brides who want to honor the past but celebrate their own personality! Below are some of our favorite examples of different wedding traditions spun in a way to please modern brides.

Edible Wedding Favors Always Please a Crowd!

When deciding on wedding favors, many brides these days decide to focus on guest entertainment (with services such as a photobooth or live wedding painting), but there’s something to be said about items your guest can take home with them to remember your special day by. While there are tried-and-true favorites, like koozies or mint boxes, wedding favors are a great way to put a personalized spin on your wedding. Pick something that compliments your likes & interests or, perhaps most popularly, something your guests can eat! Edible wedding favors are a great option because they allow a late night snacking option while also taking something useful back home. Some ideas include personalized hot sauce bottles, popcorn takeaways, or even a bag of coffee beans!

Grandparents as Flower “Girls” are the CUTEST!

Family is often the most important part of any wedding ceremony; being surrounded by loved ones as you say “I Do” is a truly memorable event to cherish for a lifetime. The traditional bridal party roles, however, can be anything BUT traditional – especially if you have a fun family to help you do it! Pictured above are two examples of grandmother’s being utilized as flower girls and bridal party members. We’d think it’d be just as cute to include grandpa as a “ring bearer” as well! This gives the important people in your life a big role in your wedding, but in a way that will spread smile & joy to all of your guests!

Skip the Bouquet…Walk Your Dog Together!

There is nothing cuter than having your fur babies with you on your wedding day, but what’s the best way to include them? Having something active works best for pets; it allows them to be their true, energetic selves without feeling like you need to keep them quiet. We absolutely love the idea of bride & grooms walking down the aisle TOGETHER – they’re truly starting their life together. And what better way to show off your family than including your little ones? Allowing your dogs to walk down the aisle with you creates a beautiful moment for you & your spouse while also making some FABULOUS photos. Spice up your pup’s leashes with some fresh florals and a bowtie for the occasion & you’re ready to go!

Something Old, Something New….Something Soft, Too??

Adding texture to your wedding day is a great way to add visual interest to your photos and also keep your guests entertained. Velvet has been having a moment right now and we hope that it lasts forever. We want to put velvet everywhere – on your groomsmen, on your bridesmaids, on the tables, on the chairs….you get the picture. Small accents like bouquet ribbons or cute bows in your hair allow for romantic, whimsical touches while also keeping the details in mind!

Funky, Cool Bouquets (That Can Take or Leave the Florals!)

Bouquets don’t have to be full of florals to make an impact and we love the idea of making cool, quirky collections based off your favorite things! Mixing multiple mediums along with flowers gives your bouquet an edgy yet feminine vibe which also allowing you to customize your bouquet to your wedding dream. We love the lemon & lavender version based above, along with the skull & cacti bouquet that truly captured the brides spirit. The silk butterfly bouquet is the perfect whimsical piece to add to any ethereal dress!

January 7, 2020

If you’re a traditional bride who wants to feel like a princess on your wedding day, one of the best silhouettes to choose is a ballgown. With a fitted bodice but a voluminous skirts, a-line ballgowns allow for you to move comfortably during your wedding day while also still feeling like the center of attention. Here at DG, we have so many gorgeous princess gowns for you to choose from, so narrowing down this list was hard! Here are 8 of our favorite ball gowns we have in store for you. Fall in love with one? Screenshot the photo and show your consultant at your appointment!

Taylor by Maggie Sottero

We fell absolutely in love when we first saw Taylor – we are already dreaming of her being worn during a gorgeous winter wedding! Her unique Ice Quartz color truly makes her stand out, along with the glitter tulle skirt and beaded top. Her open v back is sexy yet sophisticated and we love how princess-y the volume of her skirt is. This is truly a gown for someone ready to have the ultimate Disney wedding, complete with eye-catching color and extended train!

D6752 by Essense of Australia

This chic yet classic ballgown courtesy of Essense of Australia is sure to be a hit among ladies who want a more traditional feel with a modern twist! The trickling lace appliques flow through the skirt and are also on the back of the train; there is gorgeous white and crystal beading throughout the bodice; the v neckline is mirrored with v side-cut outs, adding extra sexiness while also giving support. This baby is gorgeous in ivory, but even more stunning in the champagne “Moscato” color!

Diamanda by Madeline Gardner New York

Diamanda is from Madeline Gardner’s couture collection, which explains why this dress is a stunner. It’s hard to tell in the pictures, but this baby SPARKLES. She is absolutely covered, head to town, in pearl and crystal detailing, making her the perfect option for someone wanting to make a big entrance. We love her illusion top and long sleeves, especially since the detailing trickles down the dress, letting your beautiful collar bones and shoulder blades shine! The romantic button detail on the back keeps this dress classy, yet sexy!

Sansa (2130) by Morilee

This beautiful a-line gown from Morilee redefines what it means to wear a ballgown. Instead of feeling poofy, Sansa feels flowy and airy – perfect for an outdoor wedding. The lace appliques trickle throughout the dress and the illusion sleeves make it look like the lace is painted on your skin. The plunge bodice allows for a hint of sexy, while the high neck illusion top keeps the girls supported the entire day. Sansa features an open, sheer lace back and beautiful secret sparkle throughout the skirt. This dress is sure to impress everyone in your entourage!

D2815 by Essense of Australia

This gorgeous off-the-shoulder ballgown from Essense of Australia is perfect for a bride wanting a regal, sophisticated look on her wedding day. The romantic, sweeping lace is throughout the gown and train, complimented by subtle sparkle and fabric buttons on the back of the bodice. The narrow, subtle plunge adds a hint of sexiness to this traditional yet feminine gown. This gown is so versatile, it would fit with a myriad of wedding vibes – whether you’re getting married somewhere rustic, upscale, or in between!

9667 by Allure Bridal

This beautiful tulle ballgown from Allure Bridals is perfect for the bride wanting to make an impact on her big day. Pictured in a cool ivory over platinum color, this is the ultimate Cool Girl gown. The heavily-beaded bodice features spaghetti straps, a soft v neck line, and a structured fit, making your waist the tiniest part of this gown. Crystal buttons adorn the back of the gown all the way through the skirt, a romantic detail that photographs gorgeously. You’ll fall in love with this Allure gown!

Harper (D8205) by Val Stefani

Harper is literally our most voluminous gown in the store – so if you’re looking for DRAMA in your skirt volume, this is your girl! She features multiple layers of lace, sequin detailing throughout the entire dress, and cute, off-the-shoulder sleeves for a touch of whimsy. While this dress comes in ivory, we’ve been diggin’ the “Cashmere” under color this dress comes in! The lace appliques feature bold floral accents, making this perfect for a bride who is planning on making a statement with her flowers as well. A delicate under layer of soft, chantilly lace creates visual dimension in the skirt while also keeping this dress timeless!

Fatima by Maggie Sottero

Want to feel like a princess, but not a big fan of lace and sparkle? For brides who like clean simplicity, Fatima is a perfect variation of modern and cool. The ruffle handkerchief skirt adds tons of volume and dimension in the skirt while also making it manageable for your after party/reception. The thick straps and plunging neckline look great on all body types and the ever-popular side cut outs allow for more breathability but also a spark of sexy. A subtle, white-beaded belt accents the waist and gives this dress just the touch of sparkle it needs to feel bridal.

Snowy Majestic Midwest Bohemian Buffalo Photoshoot

January 1, 2020

Have you ever been surrounded by creative people who, when all of their ideas come together, it makes something magical, but also difficult to describe? That’s how we feel about the December photoshoot we did with our resident photographer, Shelby Laine. We wanted something that would be true to our Midwestern roots and showcase some awesome new bohemian dresses we got in. We also had a local jeweler Bahia Jewelry in mind to help us with unique accessories, especially turquoise. Then Katie, DG’s very own atelier, hand-created a headpiece and fur wrap that just totally nailed the spirit of a wintery, rustic-chic vibe. Combined with the cutest buffalo courtesy of Shelby’s own uncle and we knew we had a truly unique, cool photoshoot on our hands. DG consultants Alex & Katie modeled for us, making this even more special to us as a staff. This has easily become the universal favorite shoot we’ve ever done! Catch some of our favorite images below.

Peek the custom headpiece and faux fur wrap that Katie made specifically for this styled shoot! It’s a perfect combination of bold, Midwestern style while also being a feminine, super-chic vibe. Also, aren’t the rings and bracelets by Bahia jewelry PERFECT? She didn’t even know we were going to have buffalo at our shoot and she gave us white buffalo turoquoise!

December 18, 2019

Buckle up, brides, because we are about to let you in on information regarding our newest bohemian bridal collection, All Who Wander! A part of the Essense of Australia house, this bridal collection is truly for the unique and free at heart. The bold lace, classic cuts, flattering necklines, and truly one-of-a-kind design features put this line a step above the rest. Here are some of our favorites we’ve received so far!



What’s not to instantly love about Reece, this a-line bohemian beauty? This dress was definitely designed with both style and comfort in mind. The flattering v neck line and spaghetti straps is great for showing off shoulders & collarbones while the a-line fit allows you to dance and move all night long. The unique lace patterning is traditional yet also trendy, utilizing old school patterns in a new and fresh way. Add in the fantastic, dramatic back detail and the detached fringe sleeves and you truly have a dress that will awe your guests. Whether you’re walking down a cathedral aisle or getting married in the mountains, Reece is truly the type of gown that fits in any setting!


Adley is the type of gown for a bride who’s ready to make a statement. With its laser cut-out lace patterning, this is truly a bold choice for a modern bride. The super trendy high neckline is accompanied by a plunging cut-out that’s both modest and sexy. It’s mirrored in the dramatic back with more vertical cut outs, truly elongating the torso and making brides feel taller and more confident. This dress doesn’t need beading or sparkle to make an impact – the angles and patterning is more than enough! We love the simplistic & chic pairing of celestial gold accents instead of a traditional veil, allowing Adley to truly be the star of the show.


Ziggy is truly a dress for the wild and free-spirited bride. This super cool gown takes a traditional a-line silhouette and adds depth and drama by having the lace in the underskirt, a flowy organza layer catching in the wind above it. Combined with its’ truly stunning 3D floral appliques and the modest yet flattering v neck line, this is a dress we can see looking perfect surrounded by greenery or floral. The racer back adds support and stability through the bodice while still keeping the design modern and sexy. Ziggy is the gown for any bride wanting to feel like a true fairy goddess on her wedding day!


Skye is the ultimate comfort gown while making every bride feel special. The flowy chiffon skirt is designed with lace applique panels, giving a unique illusion look on the skirt that’s unlike anything else we have in stock. We love the bold, floral lace types complimented with bold leaves and vines. The fabric gives a truly ethereal, goddess-like vibes, complete with gorgeous extended train. The thicker straps add both support and more places to showcase the beautiful lace pieces. We love Skye’s subtle plunge on the neckline and petite button detailing in the back. We’d love to see this gown styled with a fabulous floral crown, its’ skirt flowing in the Kansas prairie.

Which of these four beautiful All Who Wander gowns is your favorite? Leave us a comment here or on Facebook and let us know!

#dgbride: Jillian

November 30, 2019

#dgbride Jillian married her husband on October 12, 2019 at a gorgeously intimate ceremony at Wichita Exploration Place’s Waterwalk. We were absolutely floored seeing her gorgeously airy & romantic photos! They took shots near the Keeper of the Plains, a perfect backdrop for a cool, local couple. See more of their sneak peeks, shot by the truly remarkable Justin Casanova Photography.

Jillian chose a gorgeously fitted lace Morilee gown featuring a sheer bodice, open back, and fabulous train. Jillian was one of our lucky brides that could rock BOTH colors of the gown – her dress pictured is an ivory lace over ivory gown, but our store sample she fell in love with is ivory lace over a nude gown! Choosing between colors was difficult for Jillian because we wanted to make sure it was absolutely perfect for the color palette of her wedding. Because this dress features a slight nude tulle lining in the bodice, it allowed her to have a hint of nude coloring while keeping the ivory through the rest of the gown!

We were so thrilled when Jillian brought her mother, Francie, in to find her mother’s dress! We love when we get to style family members and when our brides trust us with their moms, ‘maids, and men. Her mom chose a fabulous navy gown that accented the natural ivory and greenery Jillian chose.

How cute is this photo of the newlyweds at their reception?! You can clearly see the love in their eyes. We can’t wait to see more of this romantic and elegant wedding!

Congratulations to the Ruffos! Love Jillian’s dress as much as we do?! Tell us in the comments or let us know on Facebook!

#dgbride: Mary

November 11, 2019

#dgbride and #dggroom Mary and Julian Bartlett were married on September 21, 2019 at the Wichita Brewing Company event space. While we love all of our brides, Mary & Julian hold a special place in our hearts. They are Delano people – they met at the Monarch bar, where Julian was a bartender. They’re quirky, unique, totally cool, and tons of fun. We could tell from the photos that this wedding was a banger!

When it came to planning the wedding, Mary did it all herself. She had a unique wedding vision she wanted to execute – something different than the traditional Pinterest photos many brides see. She knew she wanted the wedding to be edgy, a perfect adjective to describe her and Julian, but she also didn’t want it to be too dark – “a softer edge for the wedding day,” she said. The black accents, the small skulls, and the pop of chartreuse made this wedding a totally one-of-a-kind experience!

Mary picked an absolutely gorgeous crepe Maggie Sottero gown named Arleigh Rose. She chose the short sleeved version of the dress, which totally fit her laid-back attitude. Our favorite piece, and Mary’s too!, was her open back featuring spinal beaded detail. “What’s cooler than a beaded spine?!” she said. Accompanied by an absolute stunner of a crown and Mary truly was the definition of regal for her wedding.

We absolutely love her in those soft neck cutouts – chic and sophisticated, but a hint of sexy!

Mary knew exactly what type of wedding she wanted and how to execute it. That didn’t mean, however, she didn’t run into opposition from some well-intentioned family members. “I was surprised because I felt like the closer I got to the wedding, the more I had to fight for my vision,” she said. She absolutely loved the industrial feel of Wichita Brewing Company’s venue and wanted a unique wedding packed with edgy, cool details. She received some serious push back on some of her ideas, but stuck to her guns! We’re so glad she did because their wedding turned out beautiful, sophisticated, and ultra cool.

When it came to her wedding dress, Mary knew she wanted simple and sophisticated with no lace. She thought she wanted an A-line dress, but after listening to the feedback of her entourage that came with her, she knew that A-line silhouettes were not for her. Her “Plan B” was a picture of a dress she’s seen at our booth at Bridal Expo – something chic, a little sexy, and totally different from what she thought she wanted. “It was the only picture I’d taken the entire day and it was the dress I ended up buying,” Mary said. “I tried on others, but I was sold on Arleigh Rose the moment I had it on. Nothing says bad ass like a bejeweled spine! Feminine yet edgy and modern.” We totally agree!

Mary’s advice to newly engaged brides is to stick to your wedding vision and keep family’s opinions at a distance. Family and friends offered to help with her big day in order to save money, but doing so caused more headaches than it was worth. “I had family offer to help make flower arrangements, bouquets, and food for the wedding and then argued about everything I wanted,” Mary said. “Then, at times, they flat out ignored everything I wanted, then would call me a bridezilla when I insisted on things being redone to my original vision.” She ended up redoing her florals and greenery the week before her wedding in order to make sure they were perfect. Ask help from those you trust – smile and politely decline for anyone whose vision doesn’t match yours!

(Mary was also told several times that a queso fountain would “ruin her wedding” and instead, it was the most talk about detail of the night. We stand firmly on the side that queso fountains are awesome. Good choice, guys!)

“Your store was the only boutique I went to and I fell in love with the second dress I tried on,” Mary said. “I found my dress and veil there and it was the only the stress free part of my wedding.” We were so grateful to Mary that she felt comfortable enough with us not only to allow us to style her for the big day, but also her husband, Julian, and their groomsmen. They were by far one of the most fun group of groomsmen we’ve had in a long time and kept the staff laughing every time they came in!

Not only were we blessed enough to style Mary for her big day, but her husband, Julian, chose us for him & his groomsmen as well! He chose a stunning slim cut grey suit with stripped ties! We loved how cool and classic their look was while also still showcasing Julian’s super fun personality. This group was truly one for the books! Can we also talk about how attractive they all are?!

Thank you so much, Mary and Julian, for including us as part of your special day! And special thanks to official Dress Gallery photographer, and their wedding photographer!, Shelby Laine Photography for this gorgeous images. We’re obsessed with you & this wedding!
