#dgbride: Morgan B.

December 21, 2020

Okay, guys! Next up from our family of #dgbrides is Morgan! Morgan married her soulmate, Zac, at a gorgeous farm side ceremony in Pennsylvania. We think her gorgeous September wedding was captured beautifully by their photographer, Madeline Isabella!

Madison was married at a gorgeous venue surrounded by corn fields, which was the perfect organic backdrop for their bright and airy photos. Their entire gallery feels whimsical and romantic, from the autumnal florals to their pictures on a rowboat! Check out these gorgeous and unique shots below:

Morgan’s perfect Essense of Australia gown fit the vibe of her wedding beautifully. The soft, leafy lace detail adorning the bodice matched her effortless florals and trickled down through the skirt before giving way to a fabulous tulle skirt. We think her moscato-colored undertone was the perfect choice for her hair color and wedding palette!

Her off-the-shoulder neckline kept this dress romantic and timeless. Her gown featured no sparkle, which allowed her natural beauty to be the true focus! We love how organic and natural their entire day looked.

Zac and Morgan also did a traditional feet washing ceremony and the pictures made us tear up. This is an older tradition that we don’t often see brides participate in anymore, so we loved seeing this intimate moment. This was a super sweet way for the couple to honor each other which we really love.

Congratulations to Zac and Morgan! We are so thankful you chose Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique; we loved getting to know you and are so thankful the Universe brought you to our door. We wish you both a lifetime of faith, love, and happiness!

#dgcouple: Michaela & Josh

December 17, 2020

We have been anxiously waiting to show you this #dgcouple, Michaela & Josh! We love all of our couples, but the Wests are a couple near & dear to our hearts. We loved being able to help style Michaela, Josh, & their loved ones for their big day. Check out these STUNNING photos courtesy of Rebecca Rose Photography and fall just as in love with this happy-go-lucky couple as we did!

Michaela knew she wanted an autumnal wedding, complete with a dusty color palette and tons of bright florals. Originally, she thought she wanted a bohemian-inspired dress; we tried several head-to-toe lace options that weren’t quite right. Eventually, we decided to try something out of left field and picked a gorgeous a-line mikado strapless gown featuring bold lace in the bodice and a simplistic skirt.

Once everyone saw Michaela in the dress, we knew it was The One! We love how she styled her wedding day look by showcasing her gorgeous shoulders & neck with a simple up-do. Her dress was chic & timeless, which ended up fitting perfectly with the airy and bright theme!

Michaela paired her simplistic yet stunning gown with bright, textured florals which were perfect for her autumn ceremony. We loved the dried grasses which added great texture, but also the perfect neutral for all of her decor! Her altar was totally decked out with florals and dried grasses, which made the perfect backdrop!

When it came to styling her bridal party, Michaela knew she was looking for a mix-and-match color palette complete with lots of texture along with rusty oranges. She did a great job creating the color vision she was wanting and then letting her girls pick their own dresses based off the color palette! The end result was a gorgeously effortless look where you can tell everyone felt their best.

Styling Josh, his groomsmen, and important members of the family was also a job we took extra seriously. We wanted the men of the day to look just as good! Josh chose our striking navy blue tuxedo, complete with burnt orange accents and brown shoes, which matched the neutrals of the girls’ dresses perfectly. We also love that Michaela bridged the two looks with help of one of her bridesmen – by bringing in navy suspenders for him, he was able to help tie everyone together!

Can we talk about how good this group looks?! SERIOUSLY. And we are loving the natural autumnal backdrop. Michaela & Josh couldn’t have asked for a more perfectly timed wedding – just as the leaves are turning and falling!

Michaela and Josh were such a joy to work with. We are so thankful they chose Dress Gallery as their bridal boutique! Not only did your group look real good, (if we do say so ourselves!), but we loved being able to play a small part in your big day. Seeing your photos full of laughter & love brought us all the biggest smiles!

Congratulations to you, Josh & Michaela! We wish you a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter – something we’re certain you will have in abundance. Cheers to the Wests!

A Blast from the Past at this 80s Styled Shoot!

December 12, 2020

OKAY GUYS, so we’ve been waiting very, very, very patiently to show off this styled shoot we did at the end of summer. The visionaries over at Endless Treasures came up with this super cool, 80’s-vibes concept that we jumped at the chance to help out with! We love how laid back, down-to-earth, but totally fun and funky this styled shoot turned out. If you’re a bride wanting something totally different or someone planning a super cool vow renewal – we think this would be the perfect inspiration! Thanks a whole bunch to our love the Ashleys over at Kay + Bee for this fab photos – we love you, girls!

Endless Treasures had a great vision in mind when putting together this styled shoot. They wanted a bright, airy day complete with pops of bright, neon colors and 80s accents. When it came to styling Madyson & Lucas, our models, the girls knew exactly what they wanted – something funky for Lucas and a two piece for Madyson!

We knew that our traditional bridal gowns wouldn’t create the “wow” impact that Endless Treasures was hoping for, so we created this custom look for them by piecing together a tie-front shirt and a gorgeous royal blue satin romper-skirt! It was actually the bottom of a two piece prom outfit we had! Paired with Madyson’s rocker-chic curly mohawk and the artistic details, we are totally heels-over-head for this look.

Styled shoots take a village to pull off and while we’re proud to have played a small part with the outfits, there were so. many. vendors. that helped make this vision come to life. We love the tropical florals provided by Revel Gardens and the terrazzo-inspired cake from Stand Tall Bakery! Check the bottom of the post for the full list of vendors.

Can we PLEASE swoon over the super cool cassette tape seating chart and these massive, over-the-top tropical florals?! We also love the cute, repetitive detail of used paintbrushes throughout! We think would be the coolest elopement or quick ceremony for any art lovers! Also, can we talk about the bohemian-cool atmosphere that the tropical-colored fringe creates?! We love a good fringe!

Thank you so much to Botanica for hosting us! Their rainbow bridge was the perfect backdrop to accent our rainbow-inspired day.

When it came to Lucas’s look, we kept his ceremony outfit traditional-cool with an all ivory look to offset the amount of color throughout. For his reception look, we swapped the jacket for a funky, color pattern that perfectly accented Madyson’s skirt! We love how cool and unique this couple looks together.

Thank you SO MUCH to all the vendors that helped up create this super cool styled shoot! This is definitely one of our favorites one to date. We love the super unique vision the ladies at Endless Treasures had and are so glad they chose us to help. Check out all of the other fabulous vendors listed below with links to their business pages!

#dgbride: Crystal

December 8, 2020

Smokeshow #dgbride Crystal and her husband, Roy, tied the knot at an intimate summer ceremony on August 1, 2020. We cannot handle how absolutely stunning they look in these photos from Brianna Huynh Photography! Take a peek at this super smoking couple below.

Crystal came and shopped with us in June with a wedding date of August 1. Her and Roy knew they wanted a whirlwind engagement ending in a fun, love-filled party to celebrate their marriage; the details would work themselves out. She found herself a group of vendors that were able to pull off her vision quickly with no problems at all!

When it came to her dress, she knew that she wanted a form-fitted, sexy gown with a hint of traditional romance. With a quick wear date, her consultant knew that she wanted to give Crystal the gorgeous gown of her dreams, but wanted to make sure there was more than enough time for alterations as well!

Crystal ended up in a freaking fabulous Maggie Sottero fitted gown featuring a plunging neckline, modern lace appliques, and beaded spagetti straps. The blush undertone looked gorgeous with her skin and fait hair! Combined with her well-structured gown showing off her silhouette and this gown was immediately the winner as soon as she put it on!

Her consultant made sure to pull “quick ship” dresses during the appointment – styles that designers often have in-stock to accomodate fast wear dates. By having her consultant pull those gowns, that eliminated looking through dresses that didn’t have the potential to come in time & possibly falling in love with something she couldn’t get.

We absolutely love how Crystal styled her gown, Tuscany Lynette, with minimal extras; she let her silhouette do all the talking! By keeping her accessories & hair natural, Crystal looked entirely effortless on her wedding day. We loved these sweet, intimate pictures of her and her mother as they were getting ready!

Thank you so much, Crystal, for trusting us to style you on your wedding day. We loved being able to style you & were so happy to accept the challenge of a quick engagement. We wish you & Roy the absolute best in your life together; here’s to many years of laughter and love!

#dgbride: Mariana

December 5, 2020

Petite and fabulous #dgbride Mariana married her soulmate, Tanner, on August 1, 2020. Their photographer, Cultivated Moments, captured these gorgeous traditional photos of Mariana and her new hubs and they are stunning. Like, seriously! Check out her customized Stella York gown below!

Mariana is the definition of the word cute – literally everything about her warm, polite personality is the cutest. Her height is also the absolute cutest, however looooooooong all of the dresses were on her! Because most dresses are made a standard length for 5’10 women, that meant that Mariana was looking at astronomical alterations – and to be honest, the dress wouldn’t have looked the same afterward!

The solution? We did custom measurements for her height, which allowed her to bypass hem alterations. By doing this, this allowed the dress to be made for Mariana’s petite height in mind! This created her Stella York gown proportionally for her, making sure that every detail we loved in the store looked just as it should on her special day.

Her perfect fitted Stella York gown featured sequined lace appliques throughout, a stunning soft v-neckline with wide straps leading into a sophisticated yet sexy illusion back. Combined with the traditional train and hemlace, this dress fit perfectly with her church ceremony! We love how she accented her gown with a bouquet of soft pinks, ivory, and natural greenery.

With a soft updo and a fingertip length lace veil, Mariana looked like the ultimate classic, timeless bride! Thank you so much, Mariana, for allowing us the opportunity to style you for your wedding and for trusting us with special measurements. We know it can be nervewracking! We wish you & Tanner a lifetime of love and happiness. Cheers to the Tuckers!

Erin King Photography

Don’t be like us and sleep on Erin, fam, because this girl is good. We were recently sent a bride’s gallery from Erin and oh my goodness, we all lost our minds.

#dgcouple: Abby & Matt

November 29, 2020

It’s time for a double header, fam! Let us introduce to you #dgbride and #dggroom Abby and Matt Morris! They were married in front of their loved ones on September 26, 2020. Their original spring date got moved due to COVID-19 and this couple definitely had to roll with the punches, but the result is wedding even more gorgeous than we could have imagined. (We might be biased because we did the dress & suits, but whatever). Shoutout to photography genius Brianna Huynh for these fabulous photos!

After having to reschedule their original May ceremony date, Matt and Abby didn’t let COVID stop them from having the ultimate party. They had been waiting quite patiently for their wedding to begin with, so a few more months was nerve-wracking but totally worth it! Their marriage was definitely a party, surrounded by a loveable group of friends & family. (Again, we’re biaed, but Matt’s groomsmen might have been our favorite that weekend!)

Abby chose an absolutely stunning Essense of Australia ballgown for her special day. The “moscato” champage color underneath looked perfect with her dark hair and makeup! Her horsehair trim added additional volume to the skirt, making this dress ultra dramatic. Add in supportive, wide, sequined straps and a beaded illusion back and this dress couldn’t be beat!

When it came down to styling Matt and his groomsmen, the Morris’s wanted to keep things classic, traditional, but stylish. We recommended a gorgeous grey tuxedo, accented with hunter green detailing that perfect matched their florals & greenery! We also have to give Matt an extra big shoutout. For whatever reason, his replacement vest was sent in the correct size, but fit incorrectly, and he was totally chill and willing to let us overnight him a new one to perfect his fit. Thanks for letting us take care of you, Matt!

Okay guys, now it’s time for our favorite photos from their wedding….are you ready?! This is their first look and when we saw these, all of us girls here at Dress Gallery were bawling. The raw and honest emotion on Matt’s face when he saw his smokeshow of a wife was the absolute best!

Thank you so much, Matt & Abby, for allowing Dress Gallery to play a small part in your big day. We were so thankful to get to know you both during your time with us. We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and ALL of the laughter – which we know is the future for both of you!

Style 21705

This bridesmaid dress gives us some serious 90s vibes! We are planning a Cruel Intentions-styled wedding and Selma Blair’s character would definitely wear this dress. The straight across neckline is very 1997 and combined with the tie straps and leg slit – the only thing that would mae this more 90s is if they made it velvet.

Combine one of the season’s hottest necklines with the softest, most feminine of sleeves and you’ve created this gorgeous bridesmaids dress! We love the tighter off-the-shoulder sleeves and the scoop neckline, accented by a higher waist and flowly floor length skirt. Spaghetti straps and pockets make this dress perfect!

Style 21707

Rounding out the last of their short dresses, this style is just waiting for its’ rustic, Midwestern wedding.

Style 21709

#dgbride: Danielle

November 24, 2020

Smokeshow #dgbride Danielle married her hottie soulmate, Tyler, at a gorgeous traditional ceremony on September 9, 2020. We fell head-over-heels in love with these photos from Erin King Photography; it’s pretty much impossible not to. Keep scrolling to swoon over this gorgeous wedding!

Danielle chose a fabulous fit-and-flare Moonlight gown, featuring multiple layers of lace and a champagne undertone. Her off-the-shoulder neckline perfectly shows off her collarbones and shoulder blades! Add in some gorgeous romantic fabric buttons, a plain tulle cathedral train for some drama, and bam! You’ve got the ultimate bridal look.

Danielle shined with subtle sparkle throughout her gown; the clear sequins sewn on her lace appliques allowed her to shimmer with every step! We love how she kept her styling simplistic and traditional. Her bold yet stylish crystal accessories totally pull together her bridal look.

We loved being able to help style Danielle for her special day. She wanted a fitted look that was sexy, yet sophisticated and something totally timeless. We think her off-the-shoulder neckline combined with the soft, feminine lace is the perfect combination of styles that reflect Danielle’s natural beauty.

Thank you so much, Danielle, for allowing us the opportunity to style you. We loved getting to know you and are so proud to call you a DG bride. We wish you & Tyler a lifetime of love & happiness!

Eloping in 2021? Here Are 6 Domestic Dress & Destination Combinations!

November 17, 2020

We’re seeing a big shift in weddings come 2021. Thanks to COVID-19, the days of large-scale, massive wedding ceremonies are falling to the wayside. More and more couples have decided to cut the guest list and elope, focusing instead on the gorgeous scenery, fabulous food, and immaculate outfits. Eloping allows you the opportunity to have a truly unique backdrop for your ceremony! If you’re thinking of eloping, here are some inspiration combinations from the minds of our stylists – dresses & places we think will be totally stunning.

St. Augustine, Florida

If you’re looking for a romantic, dreamy, tropical destination for your big day, we absolutely love St. Augustine, Florida. The oldest city in the United States, this city is dripping in rich history and historic architecture. Add in some gorgeous tropical scenery and you’re guaranteed to have photos that will take your breath away. One of our favorite places we’ve found is Villa 1565, a local hotel featuring a stunning courtyard and hanging branches!

Our bridal gown recommendation for this location? Rebecca Ingram’s Darby, a fitted and sexy crepe dress featuring a modern neckline, frosted sparkle detailing, and an effortless train.

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho

There are few places in the United States as gorgeous as Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Nestled in the top corner of Idaho, this area is known for its’ gorgeous lakes, fabulous hiking trails, and perfect weather. Whether you’re wanting a lakeside ceremony or a gorgeously intimate backyard bash, Coeur d’Alene features venues to fit every vibe of wedding.

If you’re thinking about this fabulous Pacific Northwest getaway for your big day, we’d style you in Essense of Australia’s style 7115. A flattering soft a-line dress featuring an off-the-shoulder neckline and a bold yet feminine lace pattern. Combined with a fabulous champagne under color (lovingly called ‘moscato’), this gown is just waiting for a bride to wear wildflowers in her hair and frolick through the fields!

Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas

If you’re a bride who wants to stay a touch traditional while still having a breathtaking elopement, look no further than Thorncrown Chapel based in Eureka Springs. A short 5 hour drive from Wichita, this Ozark getaway totally transports you into a totally different world. This gorgeous glass chapel allows for the ultimate natural lighting while also highlighting the natural beauty of the surrounding mountains. We can only imagine this location at sunrise!

If this whimsical and romantic getaway seems like the location for you, we’d recommend something bohemian and natural, like Chic Nostalgia’s “Celina.” Part of their 2021 collection, she features a bold lace pattern, frosted beading, and the ultimate champagne undertone. We think this gown, surrounded by the gorgeous trees and foliage, would make the ultimate bohemian dream look!

Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis, Missouri

Elopements don’t automatically mean a rural, wilderness area. If you’re more of a city type of couple, finding a great metropolitan location can create some fabulous backdrops for you. We have absolutely fallen in love with garden elopements; you can save on flowers & decor by choosing a venue, like Missouri’s Botanical Garden in St. Louis, that comes ready-to-wed with their gorgeous florals!

We think that a botantical-themed wedding like this is just asking for a flowy, whimsical a-line gown like Rebecca Ingram’s Iris. The long-sleeves add a touch of modesty while the blush undertone will capture the surrounding flowers perfectly. Style with a flower crown like the model’s and you’re guaranteed to be the most perfect garden fairy!

The Gathering Place in Wasilla, Alaska

If there’s one place that’s collectively on the Dress Gallery bucket list, it’s Alaska. This gorgeous Northern state is literally full of gorgeous back drops for your wedding. We’re biased, but we love The Gathering Place in Wasilla – they’re owned by family members of one of our stylists! This rustic yet elegant rural bed & breakfast is a perfect getaway for your elopement. Plus, during certain months, you’re able to see the Northern Lights! How perfect would those wedding photos be?!

We think that a dress like Allure’s 9774 would be breathtaking with a wonderful wintery setting. The gorgeous Mikado skirt would perfectly pair with fresh snow and the off-the-shoulder neckline keeps you feeling sexy, yet covered. Style with a stylish fur wrap for both warmth and fashion and you’re guaranteed to feel like the most regal snow queen!

Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park in California

If you’re looking for some drama for your wedding elopement, you can’t get much more dramatic than the largest trees in the world. For real, they literally have the world’s largest tree – its’ name is the General Sherman tree and it’s so large, you can’t capture it standing straight up and down in a single photo from the ground. This gorgeous area has recently been closed down to the wildfires on the West coast, which makes this area all the more special and unique as firefighters work tirelessly to save these ancient trees.

If you think that hiding up in the tree branches might be a great idea for your wedding, we recommend something flowy and fabulous like Morilee’s 2191. This soft a-line gown features illusion straps, a subtle plunging neckline, and trickling lace throughout the skirt. This is the ultimate dress to go hiking in!
