#dgbride: Jennifer

October 25, 2021

Alright, y’all, this next #dgbride is literally the ONLY BRIDE in this gown and we have been DYING to show her off! Our fabulous bride, Jennifer, married her soulmate Andrew in a gorgeously traditional Christian Orthodox ceremony followed by a large, extravagant party! You’re going to absolutely die over her photos courtesy of Skylar Livingston, especially when you see her freakin’ DRAMATIC Morilee gown. Get ready to fall in love with this wedding just as much as we did!

Jennifer chose an absolutely STUNNING fitted Morilee gown featuring a dramatic overskirt. We love that this additional detail gave Jennifer the power to complete change her look mid-day. Her A-line look was perfect for the cathedral and photos, but the stretchy, fitted dress underneath allowed her dance the night away with her loved ones. The dress features almost entirely sequins, allowing Jennifer to shimmer with every step, but also totally customize her metal color!

We love the Jennifer kept her look glamorous and fashion forward by wearing a gorgeous bridal tiara and beaded cathedral length veil. If you’re getting married in one of the most historic cathedrals in town, you have to show out! Her classic strapless neckline was perfect for her summertime wedding, showcasing her petite shoulders, while still staying modest and sophisticated for her traditional ceremony. Add in her beautiful bridal ivory color palette and you have the ULTIMATE classic yet modern bride!

How stunning are these photos from Skylar Livingston? We love how the airy and bright editing totally matched Jennifer’s classic style. Plus, we love any opportunity to highlight gorgeous Wichita backdrops! We wish we could take credit for Andrew’s look, but that was all the bride! His Jacquard printed ivory look complimented Jennifer perfectly while still allowing him an opportunity to shine. We love a fashionable groom!

Congratulations, Jennifer and Andrew! We cannot thank you enough, Jennifer, for trusting us to style you for such an important day. We loved getting to know you, your super fun family, and are so thankful you trusted your unique wedding vision to rock this gorgeously glam dress. We still can’t believe you’re our only bride in this babe! We wish you and Andrew a lifetime of love and happiness. Cheers to the Wakims!

#dgbride: Kylie

October 22, 2021

Guys, guys! We are so excited to introduce one of our newest #dgbrides, Kylie! She married her soulmate, Michael, in the brightest, dreamiest outdoor ceremony this past summer. We feel heels over head for her photos courtesy of Little Bird Photo, whom we have decided is one of the SWEETEST photographers and we loved her shooting + editing style! You should definitely put her on your short list of potential photographers after you see some of these glorious sneak peeks!

For her bridal look, Kylie chose a stunning, traditional off-the-shoulder ballgown courtesy of MGNY Bridal. Style 51435 was the perfect choice for Kylie’s true bridal look. The bold lace appliques keep this traditional silhouette ultra modern and we love that she picked an all ivory color palette. Michael’s navy blue look perfectly complimented the crisp, clean look of Kylie’s dress. It’s hard to see in the photos, but her dress featured a small layer of subtle glitter to add extra shimmer in every step!

How cute at these two?! Kylie is a petite bride, so to accomodate her height, we actually ordered this dress in a shorter length! Doing so made sure the dress was made proportionally to her height, but also saved her a little bit in alterations because she needed minimal hem height taken off!

Congratulations, Kylie and Michael! Thank you so much for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We loved getting to know you and help you find your gorgeous wedding dress. We wish you both a lifetime of love and laughter; cheers to the Olsens!

#dgcouple: Deanna and Jadon

October 20, 2021

Alright, y’all, we are STOKED to introduce to you one of our newest #dgcouples! Introducing Deanna, who married her soulmate Jadon in a whimsical, romantic, totally organic ceremony complete with the DEWIEST of makeup looks. Like seriously, we were in awe of Deanna’s total bridal package! Her photographer, Jessi D, totally captured their day perfectly – everything about their gallery was airy, sweet, and totally timeless. You’re gonna wanna steal ALL these wedding details, so get ready to fall in love below!

OKAY DEANNA, WE SEE YOU. Can we PLEASE talk about how freaking gorgeous she looks in this effortless Moonlight Couture gown?! It was truly waiting JUST for Deanna, as she is our very last bride in this gown – she snagged a FAB price on our sample gown, so this baby is all hers! She wanted a romantic off-the-shoulder neckline for her bridal look and there was nothing that compared to the whimsical, delicate neckline of this dress. The multiple layers of lace create serious dimension and the soft blush undertone matches perfectly against her hair and skin color! Style J6750 was truly the most magical gown for Deanna’s perfect day.

All we want in our lives is look as dewey and effervescent as Deanna did on her wedding day! The subtle sequinning throughout the gown allowed her to shimmer with every step, but since the dress featured no beading, Deanna was able to rock the rose gold accents she loved! We love her sexy yet sophisticated back jewelry and the delicate, organic hair piece she chose for her boho updo!

Styling Jadon was JUST as fun as styling Deanna – they had a group that was FULL of laughter and jokes. We wanted Jadon to stand out amongst his groomsmen, so he rocked the sports coat while the rest of his party said down-to-earth in our Casual Groom package. Jadon rocked an Ivory jacket to match Deanna, while keeping the rest of the look cool and timeless with black accents. Their neutral color palette was perfect for their gorgeous outdoor photos! Plus, we love that Jadon and Deanna thought of their bridal party members by keeping them cool during their outdoor, summertime ceremony.

Thank you so much, Deanna and Jadon, for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We loved getting to know you and are so thankful you trusted us with such an important part of your special day. You both looked truly stunning; we know you both will have a lifetime of love, laughter, and happiness! Cheers to the Orebaughs!

#dgbride: Tayla

October 18, 2021

Guys – we just got sent the DREAMIEST of wedding galleries and we are so excited to share! Introducing #dgbride, Tayla, who married her soulmate in the most airy and ethereal ceremony we’ve seen in a long time. Their bright, romantic day was popped with springtime accents and was captured perfectly by their photographer, Lana Cook. If you want classic bridal-style photos, Lana should DEFINITELY be on your short list! Get ready to fall in love with this couple, below!

We can NEVER get enough Kansas sunset photos! Maybe we’re biased, but the natural backdrop of the wheat fields against their neutral wedding color palette. Tayla’s gorgeous “moscato” colored gown was a perfect balance against the golden hour photos. Her husband’s formal-yet-laid back attire with khaki slacks and a classic vest/tie combo matched Tayla’s easy-to-groove Essense dress. They NAILED the effortlessly easy wedding day look!

When it came to choosing her gown, Tayla knew that she wanted something stunning, but totally comfortable. She wanted to be able to dance the night away, but also look absolutely stunning (what every bride wants, right?!) This showstopping Essense of Australia gown fit the bill perfectly. The illusion high neckline is sexy, yet sophisticated, allowing Tayla’s décolletage to be on display while still being totally supportive. The illusion lace side cutouts are a hint of sexy, but are so easy to miss you almost don’t notice they’re there! Multiple layers of lace keep the dress dimensional and the subtle crystal beading throughout adds a touch of glam!

Congratulations, Taylee! Thank you SO MUCH for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We are so thankful you trusted us to style you for such an important day. You were truly a vision! We wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness. Cheers to the Porters!

#dgcouple: Iya + Dustin

October 13, 2021

Guys, you are gonna need some water for this next wedding, because this #dgcouple is SPICY. Like, not even jalapeno spicy. We’re talking Ghost Pepper level spice. Our gorgeous bride + groom, Iya and Dustin, got married in one of the most gorgeously modern, yet timeless ceremonies we’ve seen in a long time. Their photographer, Katy Elaine, totally NAILED their joyous day and we could feel the love radiating from every photo. You’re gonna LOSE IT when you see this bridal party, y’all! Get ready!

This ultra fun, ultra cool, ultra hip couple had a wedding VISION and it came together, y’all. Iya had a dream of a whimsical, romantic, super airy atmosphere with a hint of edge and sexiness. Their totally cool style came together perfectly to create a timeless wedding with the MOST FUN atmosphere. Plus, maybe we’re biased, but how cool does everyone look?!

For real, we cannot get over how fabulous Iya looks! She chose an absolutely stunning Essense of Australia gown, perfectly fitted to her silhouette, with sexy yet sophisticated side cut outs and a plunging v neckline. Her delicate spaghetti straps were beaded with the same soft, white beading used throughout the dress, along with sequining and a layer of cool, textured glitter to add dimension to the dress. Her dramatic extended train totally created a “WOW” moment and we love how she framed her body with a long chapel-length veil!

When it came to styling the bridal party, we can’t take credit for Iya’s maids – she did those all herself. She was a fashion forward bride looking for silk satin midi dresses before our designers made that style. NOW, however, we have some great silk satin options for brides wanting to pull off a look similar to this! Her champagne accents were a perfect neutral against the boys’ classic navy suits. We love how Dustin kept his look just a little different from his groomsmen, allowing them to pop with floral ties and keeping the simplistic vibe all to himself!

We can’t get over how these two look at each other! Iya’s gorgeous Essense gown totally fit the vibe for the fun and funky vision they were wanting, while still feeling traditional bridal. Her big, bold lace appliques throughout kept his gown modern and the stretch jersey liner allowed her to dance the night away while still showing off her hips! We might be biased, but this style is a PERFECT choice for brides like Iya – fun, flirty, yet totally dramatic! D3066 is a dress totally made with the modern bride in mind.

Congratulations to you both, Iya and Dustin! We are SO BEYOND THANKFUL y’all chose Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. You were a blast to style, we loved hanging out with you + your group, and we totally lost it when we saw your wedding album. We’re going to be talking about your wedding for years to come. We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter – something we’re sure you’ll have in abundance. Now, drink some for us. Cheers to the Browns!

 

#dgbride: Hailee

October 10, 2021

Okay, guys, we’re SO EXCITED to showcase our newest #dgbride, Hailee! After having to reschedule their traditional 2020 wedding due to COVID, Hailee married her soulmate, Spenser, in a gorgeously springtime ceremony full of love, laughter, and their beautiful little girl. Their photographer, Lana Cook, was the perfect pick to shoot their outgoing and upbeat wedding. Her airy and bright photographs captured this special wedding day in the best and, we might be a little biased, but you’re going to lose it over Hailee’s gorgeous wedding gown. Take peeks below!

When it came to choose Hailee’s gorgeous gown, she knew she wanted a STUNNER that was sure to get a “WOW” from her crew. When we found this gorgeous Moonlight Couture dress, we knew nothing else would compare! Hailee’s gorgeous fitted gown features literally one of the longest trains we have in the store – perfect for some serious drama. Her soft champagne undertone perfectly accented her multiple layers of lace, allowing the details to shine through in her photos. She was delicately beaded in white crystals from neckline to hem lace, making her extra glam with every step. Her tank straps gave support throughout the night while her soft v neck/open back kept her cool and a ~touch sexy!

When it came to choosing dresses for Hailee’s maids, we knew we wanted to match the soft, delicate airiness that comes with springtime colors. Her soft pastel pinks and purples were perfectly feminine while creating the perfect “pop” against the organic backdrop of their photos. Paired with the classic menswear in navy and you truly have a timeless looking bridal party!

Congratulations, Hailee + Spenser! We are so thankful you trusted Dress Gallery to style you for such a big day. We loved getting to know you and are so glad we were able to play such a small part in an important day. We wish you + Palmer lots of love, laughter, and happiness. Cheers to the Schoolers!

 

 

#dgbride: Brooke

October 7, 2021

Ready to fall heels-over-head with our newest #dgbride, Brooke! She married her soulmate, Garrison, in a gorgeously organic ceremony at Wichita’s newest wedding venue, The Atreeum! Located north of Wichita in Valley Center, this greenhouse/nursery-based venue is off the charts beautiful and needs next to no decorating! Our girl Shelby Laine took these fabulous photos and we are RUNNING to book our latest party at The Atreeum! You’ll definitely want to put them on your wedding vendor list. Take a peek at their gorgeous venue, along with Brooke’s smokin’ photos, below!

Y’all, we are SO STOKED to show off Brooke, who is our ONLY EVER Eddy K bride! We were very lucky to host a one-off Eddy K Bridal trunk show last year and Brooke stopped by during that weekend. While we wasn’t specifically searching for Eddy K, we were able to pull those special dresses during her appointment and then she fell in love! Come Monday, we had to pack those babies up and ship them to their next home, so Brooke is our ONLY BRIDE who will ever be in this Eddy K gown. How special is that?!

Brooke’s gorgeously fitted Eddy K gown featured a stretch liner, which meant she was able to dance the night away! Her ivory/ivory color palette totally kept her look effortlessly bridal, while also matching her fabulously chic venue perfectly. We love that she kept her details natural and organic, perfectly for a greenhouse wedding. Her dramatic cathedral veil with delicate beading framed her long, lean body. Her softly plunging neckline and open back keep this dress sexy, yet sophisticated for her summertime ceremony. We love this Eddy K style, Alessandra!

When it came to picking out Brooke’s babes’ dresses, we knew we wanted something soft and airy to match the effortless day. Brooke had pops of dusty rose, pastel purples, and mauves throughout her floral decor, so choosing dresses in that color palette were easy. We ended up in various shades of “French Violet” from two of our designers, Morilee and Kanali K. Brooke allowed her girls to choose styles that made them feel confident + comfortable while still keeping to her wedding colors. We LOVE how it all came together, especially with the petite lavender bouquets for the maids!

We can’t take credit for Garrison’s look, but we LOVE that he chose a timeless, classic navy. It paired perfectly with the crisp ivory and soft purples of the day, while still feeling formal enough for a wedding. Their gorgeously summery photos are the perfect backdrop for this fun-loving, outgoing couple! We loved the shots that Shelby snapped of them together, in golden hour, totally enamored with each other. This couple is clearly in love!

Congratulations, Brooke and Garrison! We cannot thank you enough for trusting us to be your bridal boutique. We LOVED getting to know you, help style your gowns, and are SO EXCITED you’re the only DG bride ever to be in this gown. It was truly waiting for you! We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter. Cheers to the Greers!

#dgbride: Leyra

October 5, 2021

Guys, you are gonna LOSE IT when we show off our newest #dgbride! Introducing Leyra, who married her fabulous soulmate in the most ethereal summertime ceremony. Their photographer, TAB Photography, is new to us, and we fell absolutely IN LOVE with their work! If you’re looking for an established photographer in the Wichita area that’s unique, definitely check them out. Get ready to fall in love with this couple through their sneak peeks below!

Leyra chose an absolutely stunning long sleeve ballgown from designer Morilee. She knew she wanted the romantic yet modest coverage that sleeves bring, regardless of ceremony time. We love that she had a wedding vision and she stuck to it! Her gorgeously flowy ballgown featured frosted lace appliques, a soft v neckline, and a layer of sparkle hiding throughout. Morilee style 825 truly look stunning on her!

Leyra kept her look traditional, yet gorgeous with a cathedral length ivory veil and stunningly dramatic tiara. Combined with her classic yet beautiful braided updo and you have the total bridal package! Her look is the perfect combination between regal and romantic.

Congratulations, Leyra! We so appreciate you trusting us to style you for your wedding day. We loved getting to know you and helping you find your perfect Morilee gown. It was truly waiting for you! We wish you a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter. Cheers to the Evans’!

#dgcouple: Alyssa + Thomas

October 3, 2021

Guys, get ready to LOSE IT over our next #dgcouple! Alyssa + Thomas got married in a bright, sunny, and romantic June 2021 ceremony surrounded by an intimate amount of friends and family. We absolutely loved their modern, yet timeless spin on their wedding day. Shelby of Hound and Honey Photography, one of our personal favorites, perfectly captured this ethereal day. Take a peek at some of our favorite shots below!

Alyssa and Thomas wanted their wedding to be fun, down-to-earth, and the ultimate celebration of their love. That meant when it came to choosing her dress, we needed to find something that gave Alyssa the “WOW” factor she dreamed of, but the comfort to groove all night long. It was a no-brainer when it came to picking her perfect Essense of Australia ball gown! Style 6838 is fun, flirty ballgown featuring a ruffle handkerchief skirt and horsehair trim, a fabulously sequined bodice, and the ultimate Moscato undertone. Alyssa’s petite tank straps gave her plenty of support, but also allowed her softly plunging neckline to highlight the girls. We love that the dress features minimal beading, instead using sequins to shimmer with every step!

We love that Alyssa kept her wedding day look semi-traditional by wearing a gorgeous lace fingertip veil and pearl + crystal hair piece. Her billowing curls were the perfect accent to highlight her petite shoulders in her gown! Her dusty color palette complete with pops of moody accents made every detail extra romantic!

When it came to Thomas and his groomsmen, we kept the look classic + cool – a perfect foil to Alyssa’s modern boho gown. Thomas elected to wear our style 188 navy suit, called Sebastian, which we think is the best balance between timeless yet fashionable. This slimming color allows for everyone to feel confident, while still feeling bright and airy enough for a summertime wedding. We paired the look with classic navy accents and brown shoes. This is a look that Thomas and his guys can look back on, feel confident, and also know they can comfortably dance the night away!

Congratulations to the Edmondsons! Alyssa and Thomas, we cannot thank you enough for trusting Dress Gallery to style you both for your big day. We loved getting to know you and are so grateful we get to consider you members of the Dress Gallery family. We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter!
