Okay guys, our next #dgcouple is literally one of the CUTEST couples we’ve ever seen. Introducing Hannah and Cheyden, who got married in an ultra dreamy autumnal ceremony complete with the most organic backdrops and fabulous sunset photos. Their photographer, Kristen Elise, is quickly become a fast favorite of ours. You’re gonna love her, too, when you see the pictures of these two smokin’ lovebirds. Check them out below!

Hannah wanted a romantic, organic, and totally timeless ceremony and we think she NAILED it. Her gorgeous Allure ballgown created gorgeous drama against the natural scenery while also highlighting her silhouette and truly showing her off. We love that Cheyden matched her sophisticated, upscale attire with a charcoal grey that still felt laid-back enough for their Earthy wedding day!

We absolutely LOVED Hannah’s big, dramatic ballgown from Allure Bridals (style 9652) a dramatic, handkerchief skirt featuring bold lace appliques throughout. Her secret, subtle sparkle is sewn throughout her appliques and her champagne under color was a perfect compliment to her hair and skin. We love that her high neckline showed off her cleavage in the most sophisticated and supportive way. Her illusion back is full of gorgeous buttons, creating a “WOW” moment from behind just as much as the front!

Can we also talk about Hannah and Cheyden’s GORGEOUS dusty, autumnal color palette? Not only did it perfectly match the nude/champagne undertone of Hannah’s dress, but we LOVE the pop of colors that the burnt oranges, maroons, and dark purples create. Paired with the gorgeous natural greens and browns of Prairie Gardens Inn and you have the ultimate combo of bohemian meets Midwestern traditional! We knew we wanted Cheyden’s look to be classic, while still accenting using those bold, rich jewel tones that Hannah loved. We ended up on a gorgeous maroon color for him and his groomsmen to compliment!

We also love that Cheyden stole the show as the only person in a jacket, allowing his groomsmen to be more comfortable and relaxed in our Casual Groom package. Did you know that with Casual Groom, you can customize and decide between vests or suspenders based off your preferred look? Cheyden and Hannah loved the classic bow tie + suspenders combo and we totally agree! You can mix-and-match looks to create WHATEVER you want your groomsmen to look like and we love helping the guys feel fashion-forward on wedding day!

With Halloween right around the corner, we ALWAYS love when brides come in with gothic, alternative styles. Fall is the most popular time of the year for nontraditional weddings and if ~spooky is your vibe, then we have some great dresses for you! Lots of our designers feature nontraditional styles + colors that are perfect for brides who want to add a little drama to their wedding day. Some of these styles are here at Dress Gallery year ’round, while others we have to loan from our designers. Find a dress you love?! Text us prior to your appointment to confirm its’ availability! But without further ado, here are 10 of our favorite alternative dresses for 2022 brides!

Style 3400 from Allure Bridals

This spicy yet super comfortable A-line gown features TOTALLY BLACK EVERTHING. From black tulle to black lace to black beading, this is the ULTIMATE gothic dress! The soft A-line skirt is flowy, not poofy, allowing her silhouette to shine yet still able to dance the night away. The neckline features petite, delicately beaded straps, a modest plunging neckline, side cut outs, and an open back! This dress is perfect for any alternative bride who wants a truly unique, dramatic dress for her wedding day. She lives at Dress Gallery full time, so we can always pull this dress during your appointments!

Tristyn from Maggie Sottero

Tristyn is a gorgeous balance between edgy, yet traditional with her soft, strapless sweetheart neckline and full ballgown skirt. The bold lace appliques are available in both black and ivory, allowing for every bride to choose their color preference! The patterned glitter underskirt creates shimmer with every step! Tristyn also comes with a matching cathedral-length veil with the same bold, black lace! Tristyn is no longer at Dress Gallery, but can be loaned from the designer for a small fee, so ask when booking your appt!

Hesper from Rebecca Ingram

Want something totally unique + different, but not wanting to commit to black? We totally understand! Not every alternative bride wants to go dark and moody, so Hesper is a great option! This flowing glitter tulle gown features a soft A-line silhouette, textured glitter tulle, a plunging neckline, trendy beaded banded waist, and a slit perfect for highlighting your silhouette. Available in Misty Mauve, our newest fav color, this gown has a subtle purple undertone that is great for brides who want something ~different, but not noticeably untraditional. We think Hesper is a perfect combination of modern, yet classic! Dress Gallery is her permanent home, so we’re happy to pull her anytime!

3455 by Allure Bridals

What if you’re not an A-line girl? If you’re wanting to show off your hips, we got you, too, boo! This sexy yet sophisticated off-the-shoulder gown features a fitted silhouette with a stretch liner, so you can boogie the night away. Her black lace features black sequinning, allowing you to shimmer, while the blush undertone creates a romantic and edgy color palette perfect for any fall bride. Add in the black fabric buttons down to the dramatic train and we’re waiting for the first bride to pick up this stunner! She’s a DG forever babe, so we can pull her anytime!

London by Maggie Sottero

Loved Tristyn, but not looking for a ballgown? Introducing her little sister, London! London is Maggie Sottero’s newest edgy gown, a stunning fitted strapless sibling complete with this same bold, black lace. The textured glitter tulle creates visual dimension throughout the dress and we love the detachable off-the-shoulder straps. The see-through bodice keeps the dress just a touch sexy while still allowing your silhouette to totally shine! She also comes with a matching cathedral length veil for extra drama. London has to be ordered from the designer for a small fee, so definitely check with us before you book!

Adara by Wilderly Bride

Wanting to elope in the mountains / desert / rainforest but need the ultimate dress with the fluffiest skirt to pull off the photos? Look no further than Adara! Here in store, we have her in a gorgeous smoky blue/grey color, the same as overcast skies, that gives the lace appliques and extra “pop!” We love the detailed banded waist, open back, and effortless volume of the skirt! Adara is a permanent member of the Dress Gallery fam, so stop by anytime to see her!

9861 by Allure Bridals

Not sure if you want to commit to a fully black wedding dress?! Hopefully this style can help you choose! Available both in traditional bridal ivory and edgy black, we love this soft A-line gown featuring a gorgeous off-the-shoulder neckline, see-through bodice, and bold lace appliques throughout the skirt. The softly plunging neckline is sexy, yet still modest, allowing you to be the star of the show in this gown. This style is a permanent member of the DG fam, but we have her in the traditional ivory color; if you’d like to see the black in person, let us know prior to your appointment so we can look into loaning it for you!

Doing styled shoots is one of the creative outlets that fills our hearts with joy over here at DG. We love collaborating with some of our favorite vendors to create images and magic that inspires both us and our brides! We teamed up with Shelby Laine + Free State Flora to showcase Free State’s newest storefront, their gorgeous floral installations, and some of our dreamiest new gowns! We wanted this shoot to be ethereal bohemian – truly the MOST romantic vibes we’ve ever done! Show us your favorite dress during your appointment and RUN, don’t walk, to book your wedding date with Shelby and Emily – they book up extra fast!

Ready to lose it over these gowns in person?! Show your consultant during your appointment and we’ll pull these styles for you!

Alright, y’all, ready to lose it over our next #dgbride? We can’t wait to introduce Whitney, her married her soulmate, Paul, in a deliciously summery wedding ceremony full of pops of peaches and pinks. Their gorgeously fun yet traditional wedding was the perfect balance between timeless, yet modern. Our main chick Shelby Laine absolutely killed their photos – it was so hard to narrow down our favorites! Check out this fabulous wedding below!

When it came to her gown, Whitney definitely wanted to keep a timeless/traditional vibe, but we knew her gown had to have a WOW impact. With her cathedral ceremony and bougie reception, she needed a gown that could totally keep up with her fabulous wedding while also highlighting her body in the best way. There was no better option that her stunning Allure Couture gown. Whitney customized style C508 by shortening the train and ordering the dress shorter, saving her on alterations with her hem! Shortening the train also allowed her to move easily amongst her guests and dance the night away without an ultra heavy bustle.

Her fit-and-flare gown featured an illusion high neckline, totally elongating her torso and making her look extra tall (a perfect design feature for petite women!) Her thoroughly-beaded dress featured white beads and crystals from head to train, allowing her to shimmer with every step. Her illusion back was sultry, yet sophisticated, featuring buttons all the way down her back and cascading into the train! Add in her gorgeously chic bridal updo and you have a timeless, yet totally modern wedding day look.

We were also lucky enough to help Whitney style her bridesmaids, too! Whitney knew she wanted a formal-feeling color for her wedding, but traditional black felt dull and flat for her July wedding. She settled on Morilee’s “Sapphire” color, a gorgeous combination of purples and navy undertones that create the most flattering color. She kept her bridal party look classic by keeping everyone in the same dress save for her Maid of Honor, who chose a different style to set her apart!

While we can’t take credit for Paul’s look, we love that Whitney kept his outfit stylish, yet down-to-earth by choosing a middle grey – dark enough to feel formal, but light enough to feel cool for a summertime ceremony! How gorgeous are these photos taken at the historic Petroleum Building in downtown Wichita? Inside is a fabulous cocktail bar called Cana Wine + Spirits – their champagne room is where Whitney took some of her stunning bridal portraits! We love the gold accents for their upscale feeling wedding.

Congratulations, Whitney and Paul! We cannot thank you enough for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We loved getting to know you and helping style your girls. More importantly, though, we are so thankful you allowed us to play a small part of your big day. We wish you both a lifetime of love, laughter, and happiness. Cheers to you both!

 

Our newest #dgbride is one that is a little extra near and dear to our heart! Hannah is actually consultant Courtney’s sister-in-law, so being able to help style her for her wedding day was something everyone at Dress Gallery took extra pride in. Hannah married her soulmate, Zach, in an intimately religious outdoor ceremony followed by a garden dinner party full of love and handmade touches. Their photographer, Gloria McVay, is a close family friend and congregation member, who captured their down-to-earth and organic day perfectly. Get ready to fall heels over head in love with Hannah’s whimsical look!

Hannah chose an absolutely stunning off-the-shoulder A-line gown from Allure Bridals, style 9803. Her champagne undertone was the perfect accent against the natural greenery of their day and the soft tulle sleeves created the ultimate whimsical vibes. The beaded lace appliques adorned the bodice and trickled into negative space throughout the skirt, but a hidden layer of secret glitter sparkle allowed Hannah to shimmer with every step. Add in champagne fabric buttons down the entire train for an extra romantic detail and this dress was PERFECT for their vineyard reception!

Hannah kept her wedding day organic, down-to-earth, and ultra laid back. Zach’s outfit was primarily linen and instead of focusing on minor details, they were extra intentional in planning their ceremony service and worship hour during the reception. One moment that was particularly touching was Zach commissioned a local baker to make homemade challah bread, which everyone broke together at the beginning of their reception after prayer! As a couple of the Lord, it was important to Zach and Hannah to incorporate these touches throughout their wedding day to really exalt in their marriage commitment.

(Maybe we’re biased over here at Dress Gallery, but that’s one good looking family if you ask us! Hannah and Zach are standing next to their siblings, including consultant Courtney, her husband Tyson, and their siblings Taylor, Anna, & niece Aurora!)

Instead of traditional dancing, Hannah and Zach had a local worship band full of friends play during the ending of their reception and their exit. Hannah and Zach were able to spend their night worshipping the Lord while also connecting with loved ones. It was a super intimate moment at the end of the night as guests came up to extend their well wishes to the couple! Plus, who doesn’t love a good sparkler exit?!

Congratulations to the Ostermans! Thank you so much, Hannah, for being a DG bride and allowing us the opportunity to style you for your special day. We absolutely loved getting to know you and consider you a member of the DG fam! We wish you and Zach a lifetime of love and happiness. Cheers to you both!

 

 

HOKAY, Y’ALL, GET READY FOR SOME SPICE! We are over the moon excited to introduce our newest #dgcouple, Maeghan and Colin! They were wed in holy matrimony during a gorgeously summery July 2021 ceremony. Their totally fun atmosphere throughout their wedding was perfectly photographed by our girl, Shelby Laine, and it was SO HARD to narrow down our favorite images! We had such a blast styling this couple – get ready to fall as far in love as we did!

Maeghan chose an absolutely STUNNING Allure Couture gown featuring head to toe beading, bold lace detailing, and a stunningly fitted silhouette. Her sexy yet sophisticated gown was the perfect combination for her traditional yet modern wedding. We love that she kept her wedding day look down-to-earth, yet stylish, by rocking a gorgeous party pony! We’re biased, but we LOVE a good bridal ponytail!

How stunning is Maeghan in this gown?! The couture fit is stunning on her body, truly showing off her silhouette while still allowing her a comfortable dress to move around in all night. Her dress features a stretch liner, which means it was MADE for dancing! Her gown is beaded from neckline to train, which is dramatic enough for photos, but easy maintenance enough for a bustle. We love her greenery and white rose bouquet, which totally compliments her neutral color palette. Add in her sexy keyhole back and modest yet gorgeous v neckline and this dress is truly perfect!

When it came to styling Colin and his groomsmen, we decided to keep their look classic and timeless – just like Maeghan! We chose our steel grey suit named “Houston,” which was a great choice for a July wedding. Stylish and formal enough to feel like black, but more lightweight for a summertime affair. His silver and ivory accents perfect complimented Maeghan’s classic look. We love the soft texture of Colin’s grey suit that adds just a touch of dimension to all the photos!

Congratulations to the Reichenbergers! We are so thankful, Maeghan + Colin, that you trusted us to style you + your group for such an important day. We had a great time getting to know you. We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter, which we’re positive you’ll have in abundance. Cheers to you, Maeghan + Colin!

Alright, y’all, we CANNOT WAIT to introduce our newest #dgbride, Jordan! She married her soulmate, Cody, in the most gorgeous, airy summer ceremony in June 2021. We love their bright colors, neutral color palette, and totally gorgeous photos! Their photographer, Lively Photography, did a perfect job of capturing this couple’s upbeat and bubbly attitude. Get ready to save some of these for some serious wedding inspo. Without further ado, Jordan + Cody!

We LOVE puppy photos!! How cute is this family shot of Cody, Jordan, and their fur babies!? Plus, maybe we’re biased, but we love that their fur coloring matches the wedding look perfectly! Classic, bright, and perfect for an outdoor summer wedding, we love how Jordan and Cody leaned into a natural, organic color palette. Cody’s gorgeous tan suit perfectly compliments Jordan’s soft ivory gown!

Jordan chose an absolutely stunning fitted Allure Bridals gown featuring softly sequined organic lace, a comfortable sheath silhouette complete with stretch liner, petite beaded spaghetti straps and a gorgeous open back! It was truly serendipitous for Jordan to choose this gown. She walked into Dress Gallery with a quick turnaround time and we truly believe this gown was waiting for her. Our sample gown was the perfect size for her – but Allure had a BRAND NEW one in stock, ready to ship, so we were able to get Jordan a brand new gown in less than a week!

 

 

 

Thank you so much, Jordan, for trusting Dress Gallery to style you for your wedding look! We’re thankful we were able to find the perfect gown, brand new, ready to wear for your big day with plenty of time for alterations. It was like this dress was waiting for you! We wish you and Cody a lifetime of love, happiness, and puppy kisses. Cheers to the Fryes!

Holy cow, guys. We received the sneak peeks for this next #dgcouple and we lost. our. minds. We don’t even have the whole album yet – we are just THAT excited to show off Jocelyn & Adam. Their photographers, Kay x Bee, are truly the best in the game and you’re gonna wanna book them ASAP after you see this gallery. Check out these dreamy, springtime, Wichita Art Museum photos!

Jocelyn looks FREAKING STUNNING in this gorgeous Allure bridals fit-and-flare gown, complete with lace appliques and a fitted Mikado skirt. Her scalloped-edge train was the perfect amount of drama and we LOVE how she styled her look with a cathedral veil & tiara. Add in the plunging neckline and soft off-the-shoulder straps and you have the daintiest yet sexiest dress yet!

When it came to styling her girls, Jocelyn kept her look crisp & clean by choosing a classic taupe color by Morilee called “Latte.” We love how her vibrant springtime florals looked against the soft backdrops of ivory, grey, and latte! Especially when you consider their venue, the Wichita Art Museum. They were inspired by the permanent hanging glass decor for their wedding colors, which made the entire day cohesive and flawless!

When it came to Adam’s guys, we definitely wanted to keep the light color palette while also highlighting their Scottish heritage. (Do you spy those awesome kilts?!) He chose a light grey option with champagne accents to keep all the focus on the colorful greenery and fabulous florals!

Jocelyn wanted her wedding day to be classic, romantic, and timeless – and we think she NAILED IT! Combining her gorgeous Allure gown with the upscale venue of the art museum, Adam’s classic black tux with no tie, and and the natural greenery everywhere made her wedding day ethereal and dreamy!

Congratulations to the Powells! We absolutely loved getting to know you, working with you both, and hanging out with your super fun families. Your groups were a joy to style and we had a blast working with everyone. We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter (something we’re sure you will both have in excess!) Thanks again for being a #dgcouple!

 

Alright, y’all, we are hyped about our 2021 lookbook. We always love to collaborate with other local vendors to create content and showcase the gowns we sell in our own way. Using stock photos just doesn’t resonate well with us; we want you to see real, authentic love and the timeless outfits they choose to wear during these special moments.

So it hit us – why use models when we could use real DG brides? Not only would they already have beautiful dresses tailored to them, but it’s an opportunity to truly represent our gorgeous couples. All of these photos feature real brides and couples who chose Dress Gallery as their bridal boutique. We were so thankful they accepted being in our annual lookbook!

Heads up to our girl, Shelby Laine, for the awesome photos once again and a huge shoutout to Paul Mitchell School and Revolutsia. We partnered with tPaul Mitchell for hair/MUA for the first time and guys – they are our go tos now. They did a great job! And Revolutsia was the perfect unique, local backdrop to highlight. Check out our real couples and schedule your appointment to become a DG bride today!

Remember our girl Danielle?! We jumped at the chance to ask her to wear her fabulous off-the-shoulder Moonlight gown again. We loved how the Paul Mitchell MUAs played with a softly braided, loose curl look to highlight the soft, feminine features of the gown. Add in a cathedral length veil for DRAMA and Danielle is one serious smokeshow!

Re-introducing the Estradas! We absolutely loved having Samuel and Sandra back for our lookbook. Their wedding was totally extra and we were l i v i n g for it. Samuel even changed looks before the reception, allowing for a dramatic costume change to match Sandra’s stunning, glittering fit and flare gown. We chose to highlight Samuel’s reception look with the stark white and black to compliment Sandra! The love between these two totally radiated throughout the entire day; they are truly made for each other.

Do you guys remember Cara and her fabulous Allure gown?! This is one of our absolute favorite gowns in the store and we couldn’t wait to ask Cara to show off her fabulous choice. This off-the-shoulder, full a-line dress features scrolling filligree lace combined with a dainty chantilly underlay, minimal sparkle, and a champagne undertone. This is the ultimate gown for someone wanting to feel like a true princess!

Introducing the Bergkamps! So this is our girl, Autumn, who’s a #dgbabe employee – she works our front area during our prom season and we would be LOST without her. When it came to styling her bridal party, she knew she could trust us! We found her a truly unique sleeved Chic Nostalgia gown with bold patterned lace, secret sparkle, and a dramatic keyhole back. We love how they paired it with their funky, Western vibes with Ryan’s Stetson! For his look, we chose to highlight her sandy undertone by giving him a tan suit paired with one of our newest, in demand colors – Dusty Coral! We loved this down-to-Earth, slightly rustic vibe of their wedding day look.

Hello to absolute stunner, Miss Tess! Tess chose a super unique sheet lace Kenneth Winston gown to wear for her Oklahoma wedding. She paired it with a custom fringe leather jacket which perfectly fit her bohemian/Western vibes. Her sheath gown perfectly showed off her silhouette, but also allowed her to dance the night away! Finished with a unique arrowhead shape train and we were so excited Tess chose this dress.

Say hello to the Hogans! Leila and Chad were one of our favorite Dress Gallery couples. We paired her lacy high neck Morilee gown with our new mulberry colored suit, accented with maroons and blushes. Her neckline was adorned with crystals and we loved her illusion back full of buttons! The soft a-line was a perfect choice for dancing and enjoying the night. We loved how dapper Chad looked in his glasses; they truly pulled together his textured, vintage look!

Our very first highlighted #dgfamily! Alex and Canyon got married earlier in 2020 and we loved getting to style their entire family. Alex chose a gorgeous ballgown Essense of Australia dress with a ruffle skirt, cascading lace, and a beautiful moscato color. Canyon is a groom who loves to make a statement – he rocked a super cool rose floral jacket for his reception, so we knew we had to give him one of our exclusive print jackets. We paired the gold-and-copper color palette with some of our new colors, including the Sedona worn by Canyon and the Marigold worn by Camden and Max! Our tuxedo rental sizes go as small as 3T in most jackets, so we can style even the littlest of kiddos!

Wrapping up our photoshoot is our girl Jeri! We love Jeri not only because she’s the babeliest and drove down from Topeka on a Sunday AM for this photoshoot, but also because she is an Heirloom Couture bride as well – she had a bespoke Ariel-inspired crown made by our consultant, Katie, for her big day! We think it was the perfect accessory for her heavily beaded, super fitted mermaid gown with ruffle bottom and off-the-shoulder accents. Add Jeri’s bright, beaming smile and this is the ultimate feel-good look!

Did you fall in love with our brides all over again?! We certainly did. We are so thankful to have the opportunity to style couples for their big day and even more thankful when they allow us to show them off. We feel like proud momma bears every time we get a wedding gallery, so we loved being able to include them in something that’s ours since they included us!

We loved working with real brides for our lookbook so much, we might just keep this tradition…..what do you all think?!

We are so excited to show off some of our favorite images of our newest styled shoot featuring the Kansas Aviation Museum! If you’re looking for a unique, alternative place to host your wedding, you should definitely be adding the Kansas Aviation Museum to your list. Their beautiful space lists tons of room for guests (COVID ever allowing, of course), along with access for picturesque areas of the museum perfect for photos and also for guests.

We loved teaming up with KAM to help be a small part of this awesome styled shoot, shot by local photographer Justin Lister (who has been listed as one of our favorites in previous blog posts!) Check out some of our favorite shots featuring models Sarah & Spencer, an actual #dgcouple getting married in April!

For Sarah, we selected a whimsical and bohemian full lace sleeved a-line gown with flowing tulle skirt and keyhole back. Her illusion neckline and banded waist perfectly accentuate her silhouette while still allowing her to dance the night away! For Spencer, we chose one of our newest favorites, a Mulberry suit with mauve accents that matched the moody florals of the day.

Check out these awesome shots complete with vintage planes! Access to the museum is a perk of the venue, which not only acts as a cool backdrop for you, but also a unique experience for your guests. We love the idea of a romantic, intimate shot in the flight traffic tower!

We hope you love these images and are inspired to give KAM a look on your venue search! Are you a KAM bride? Let us know on Facebook and show off your photos!
