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!
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!
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 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!
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!
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!
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 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!
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.

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!

BRAND NEW BRIDAL LINE: All Who Wander
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 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 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!
6 Fall 2019 Maggie Sottero Gowns You CAN’T Miss
October 4, 2019
We absolutely love Maggie Sottero; they are one of our favorite designers and have been for the entirety of Dress Gallery’s history. Their romantic, whimsical looks are perfect for the traditional bride but their lines also feature edgy, unique pieces for the non-traditionalist. Their three collections cover all the bases for all types of brides. Below are some of our favorites from their fall 2019 collections. If you fall in love just like we did, make an appointment and tell your consultant – she’ll pull these exact dresses!
Who doesn’t love a gorgeous fit and flare gown? Complete with delicate spaghetti straps, multiple layers of lace, button details on the back, and a modest v neckline, Glorietta is the perfect mix of sexy yet sophisticated. The lace appliques are perfectly placed throughtout the gown to highlight a bride’s figure and the horsehair trim on the train keeps everything modern. This gown was made for breezy meadows, gorgeous beaches, and sunlit churches!
We are totally obsessed with how whimsical and romantic Raelynn is! Her plunging neckline keep the silhouette sexy, while also staying sophisticated. Her triple banded waist truly showcases how tiny a bride’s waist truly is. There are gorgeous lace appliques throughout the tulle skirt and, our personal favorite feature about Raelynn? She comes in a GORGEOUS blush/platinum combo, perfect for the bride wanting a unique color palette! We’re just waiting for the perfect garden party reception to see Raelynn at!
Fielding is the ultimate boho lover’s DREAM dress. This gorgeous, circular crochet lace is perfect for all styles of weddings – rustic, vintage, boho, modern. Its the nexus of all the coolest trends wrapped up into one gorgeously constructed dress. The cut out details underneath the arm create small, sexy accents and the v neckline is plunging enough for drama, but raised enough to feel supported. Fielding’s fabulous fit-and-flare silhouette is perfect for all body types – she’s made to show off all your best features!
We love a dress that makes a statement and there’s hardly a dress more WOW than Aston. This crepe material is soft to the touch, leaving you comfortable and elegant throughout the entire day. It features crystal button detailing throughout the entire train, gorgeous back and sleeve beading, and a modern but sexy silhouette. We truly believe that sometimes, showing less is more and Aston is the prime example of that. The full crepe sleeves are also a popular feature in modern bridal, but also keeps the dress classic and timeless! Stun your guess with this beautiful gown!
Melody is an ethereal, flowy goddess of a dress. It’s perfect for any bride wanting to feel light and airy on her wedding day. Not only this this baby comfortable, but she’s also full of sparkle through the bodice. The lightweight chiffon skirt is perfect for a sunset beach wedding, a laid back elopement, or a romantic mountaintop ceremony. Plus, not only does she come in a traditional ivory color, but the dress is shown is a gorgeous soft blush color, adding just a pop of whimsy to Melody!
Lucille is the perfect combination between traditional beauty and modern design. The fabulous sheet lace covering the gown is reminiscent of traditional lace patterns, but the gorgeously sexy fit-and-flare silhouette keeps the dress super modern. Combined with a beaded v neckline and beaded v side cutouts, you’re sure to sparkle in this fabulous gown. We love the small additional of horsehair trim to the train, adding some visual dimension and depth when spread out. We’re anxiously waiting for this gown to walk down a cathedral aisle or a stunning industrial setting to highlight just how unique it is!
Fallen in love yet? We totally understand, we have too. Let your consultant know which gown stole your heart at your appointment!
Our Favorite Bachelor Nation Wedding Dresses
September 6, 2019
At Dress Gallery, we love Bachelor Nation. (Okay, so like, two of us love Bachelor Nation and everyone else tolerates our obsession.) When you have a show dedicated to love, happiness, and eventual marriage, we can’t help but have the hopeless romantics in us come out. We want every Bachelor Nation couple to end up happy, in love, and inevitably wed in holy matrimony, if only so we can obsess over their gorgeous gowns. Throughout the years, The Bachelor and its’ subsequent spin-off shows have created many couples and some of them are still together! Here is a list of our favorite Bachelor Nation wedding dresses throughout the years!
1. Trista Sutter in Mishka Badgley
Trista, the original Bachelorette, chose Ryan Sutter as her suitor and they were wed on the first televised wedding in Bachelor Nation history on December 6, 2003. You can clearly tell the early 2000s fashion in this wedding, but honestly, that’s why we love it. This wedding still looks timeless, whimsical, and truly romantic. The love these two have radiated through the screen – and they’re still together, 16 years later! We love Trista’s choice of a beautiful, satin strapless a-line Mischka Badgley gown, complete with pink lace on the hem and waist. She looks classic and chic in her look, no matter how much time has passed!
2. Molly Malaney-Mesnick in Monique Lhuillier
Please, can we bring dramatic skirts back?! In 2010, Bachelor Jason Mesnick chose his runner-up, Molly, during an after-show special and they ended up engaged, married, and starting a family, all to the surprise of Bachelor Nation. They wed in a beautiful, rain-filled ceremony in Seattle, and yet her gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown stayed perfect the entire time! Her strapless fit-and-flare gown was complete with three dimensional floral appliques – how much more romantic can you get?!
3. Ashley Hebert in Randi Rahm
Randi Rahm has been a Bachelor staple for quite some time and it’s no surprise she ends up designing the wedding gowns for many of the girls, particularly Bachelorettes. Ashley, one of our personal favorites, married her partner JP Rosenbaum in a beautiful multi-religious ceremony celebrating both couples. We love Ashley’s choice of a stunning empire waist gown, complete with cap sleeves, beautiful train, and statement earrings. This classic but chic look totally stands the test of time!
4. Catherine Guidici in Monique Lhuillier
Catherine was the winner of Sean Lowe’s season of the Bachelor and they wed in January 2014 in a televised event in front of many former Bachelor Nation members. Her gorgeous lace Monique Lhuillier gown features a strapless neckline, added belt, and a matching cathedral length veil. We love how classic and chic her look is, with the delicate lace truly showcasing the dress’s silhouette. Her statement earrings matching the belt completed the whole look! Five years later, we’re still in love with Catherine’s choice!
5. Desiree Hartsock in Maggie Sottero (!!)
We are extra biased toward our girl Desiree because she was actually a bridal stylist prior to being The Bacheloretteand now, she designs her own wedding dresses! This is a girl after our own heart! Not only that, but Desiree partnered up with designer Maggie Sottero to custom create her wedding gown. We LOVE how she saw her own perfect vision through to completion! Her 100% unique gown features an illusion, one-shoulder neckline, a blush underlay, and gorgeous sweeping lace. Want to know the other coolest thing? We actually got to meet Desiree! Our owner, April, met her while she was working with Maggie during the design process and got to chat with her – she was totally sweet!
6. Jade Roper in Galia Lahav
Jade and Tanner met while on Bachelor in Paradise, a spin off show dedicated to finding love on the beaches of Mexico. Because they were both so ingrained in Bachelor Nation, is was only fitting they had a televised Bachelor wedding, complete with Chris Harrison as the officiant! Jade wore a gorgeous spaghetti strap Galia Lahav gown, complete with sheer bodice, plunging neckline, and intricate lace. She paired her gown with a whimsical but simple raw edge cathedral veil, perfect for adding drama to the gown without taking away the wow factor!
7. Carly Waddell in Idan Cohen
Another Bachelor in Paradise couple! Carly and Evan met on the beach of Puerta Vallarta, so it was only fitting they tied the knot on the same beach, televised and surrounded by all of their Bachelor Nation friends! Carly was truly unique with her dress choice, choosing Israeli designer Idan Cohan for her truly stunning nude fit-and-flare gown. The color was so unlike anything we’ve seen in Bachelor Nation before! Carly’s gorgeous lace appliques truly popped and we truly consider her one of the godmother’s of the bohemian wedding. Her fishtail braid, pepper boutonnieres, and cool-casual eating arrangements truly made her wedding stand out from the others!
8. Lauren Burnham in Hayley Paige
We’ve already covered Lauren’s entire wedding (check out that post!), but we couldn’t talk about Bachelor Nation weddings without including one of our absolute favorites. Her whimsical and romantic a-line Hayley gown was perfect for their tropical Hawaiian wedding. Her stunning veil and beautiful petal-covered altar was one of the most beautiful we’ve ever seen!
9. Krystal Nielson in Martina Liana (!!)
So – we might be a little biased and say that Krystal is our favorite Bachelor Nation wedding dress choice of all time, sorry not sorry. We love Martina Liana and are on a first name basis with Martine, the designer. We were so thrilled when Krystal chose style 905 as her wedding gown – a style we literally have in our stock room right now. We love the silhouette of her fitted dress, complete with multiple layers of lace and gorgeous secret sparkle details. Complete with the matching veil (we’ve got that, too, don’t worry), Krystal is a stunner in one of the most gorgeous contemporary designers around!
10. Ashley Iaconetti in Ines di Santo AND Rita Vaneris
We are all for a good costume change and Ashley Iaconetti truly didn’t disappoint on her wedding day. She rocked not one but two gorgeous a-line dresses for her wedding day, changing from a beautiful strapless lace ballgown into a chic, plunging spaghetti strap dress. These two looks totally capture Ashley’s classic but royal style. Plus, who doesn’t want the chance to shop for two wedding dresses?!
11. Rachel Lindsay in Randi Rahm
These exclusive shots from People magazine are the only photos available for Rachel Lindsay’s gorgeous custom Randi Rahm gown. Randi is the official gown stylists of all Bachelorettes, which made her a perfect pick for Rachel’s wedding. She helped create all the looks for Rachel’s season and got to know the bride & groom – who better to make Rachel’s vision come to life?! We love the illusion, cap-sleeved bodice, complete with beaded embroidery!
Keep on the lookout for more Bachelor Nation posts!

Our next gorgeous #dgbride is Paige, who married her best friend Kyle on June 1 at Liquid Art Winery in Manhattan, KS. We absolutely love the elegant rustic touches the bride & groom picked for their special day. While searching through their gallery, I was captivated by the black & white shots their photographer, Ashley Layden, captured – they were gorgeous! Their entire album was full of beautiful, bright photography (especially at golden hour!), but I was feeling a black & white type of ~mood today, so enjoy some of their most gorgeous shots!
Paige loved the simplistic beauty of their wedding. They wanted a lot of natural light, greenery, and a trendy-cute dusty blue color palette. She loved celebrating with their friends & family, along with having so many intimate moments with her new husband!
Paige found “The One” after a single dress! The first dress she tried on ended up being the perfect combination of sexy and traditional. Paige tried on a total of 7 dresses, eventually going back to the first dress her consultant, Katie, pulled! Dress Gallery was also the first bridal salon she tried dresses on at. She didn’t need to shop around after falling in love with her beautiful Morilee gown.
Paige paired her fit-and-flare gown with a gorgeous cathedral length lace veil, perfectly accenting the raw edges of her train. The delicate beading through the bodice truly allowed her to shine and the romantic buttons on the back add a touch of vintage whimsy while also adding a beautiful accent detail on the back.
Paige’s ethereal and effortless beauty is probably our favorite part of her wedding look. She looks chic, fresh, and bright, the ultimate romantic look for a bride on her wedding day. The love between her and Kyle is so obvious in their photos; we love the way they look at each other!
“Katie, my consultant, was AMAZING! I would definitely recommend DG to any bride-to-be!” Paige said, giving some serious love to her consultant. Paige also trusted us with her bridesmaids dresses as well! All of her girls looked beautiful in a beautiful dusty blue hue with mismatched styles, truly allowing each girl to feel confident and beautiful.
Paige’s laid back attitude truly showed through when we asked her to give advice to brides-to-be. Her succinct and simple advice? “Don’t sweat the small stuff! Also, get a videographer to document your day.” Amen to that, girl!
Thank you so much for allowing Dress Gallery to be a small part of your day, Paige and Kyle. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and love!
Mystically Whimsical Hayley Paige Styled Shoot – With a UNICORN!
August 16, 2019
We are loving that girly pastel whimsicalness is having a MOMENT right now. Whether you’re loving the bright, bold, Lisa Frank-esque style or the more pastel, galaxy-inspired hues, we can’t help but feel totally inspired by whimsy right now. When trying to figure out what type of vibe we wanted for this particular photo shoot, we knew we had to shoot our newest Hayley Paige gown with as much romance and magic surrounding it as possible. What’s more magical than a unicorn?!
Thanks to Morning Grit Farm LLC based out of Rose Hill, Kansas, we got to live out the fantastical girlish dreams we’ve always had. Frolicking in a field with a pink unicorn and cuddling with cute kittens was the ultimate way to show off the feminine, playful side of this Hayley Paige gown. Heirloom Couture Bridal, aka our very own Katie Jones, custom created a crystal tiara with shades of bubble gum pink and cotton candy blue and Chelsea’s vibrant, fun editorial makeup totally compliments.
Check out some of our favorite shots below, including our newly beloved unicorn friend!
Okay, but for real – this is giving us LIFE. How much more of an ethereal fairy could she be? This is the ultimate garden party dress!
Love this romantic, whimsical shoot? Have an idea for an upcoming styled shoot for us? Let us know on Facebook!
