Okay, y’all, so we’ve had something in the works for a while and we are SO STOKED to finally share the news. We’ve been wanting to have a Dress Gallery exclusive collection of dresses, something unseen anywhere else, so that brides could feel truly confident in saying “yes” to their dress. So, what did we do? BROUGHT IN OUR OWN DRESSES, OF COURSE! Yeah, you read that right! Introducing Opal & Lace, Dress Gallery’s exclusive collection of bridal gowns. We worked with a designer to curate and customize a fabulous collection of gowns unique to our store, area, and beyond.

Slowly, but surely, these babies are arriving to us, but we have our first nine dresses here in store and we’re in L-U-V. Like, serious love. Because these aren’t by a specific designer, they’re ~ours, we’re responsible for all marketing photos, which means you KNOW we have a fabulous photoshoot in the works with our girl Shelb to showcase these babies off. In the meantime, we wanted to still show you, so we took some in-store mannequin photos so you can RUN to your appointment and show your consultant.

Ready to see the first ever Opal and Lace dresses?! Here we go, fam!

INTRODUCING: AALIYAH

Our first arrival, literally the first, was Aaliyah, a gorgeously soft A-line gown featuring the dreamiest tulle and bold lace appliques. Her silver threaded bodice shimmers in sunlight and her petite straps give support while showing off your fabulous shoulders. We love how down-to-earth and easygoing this dress is – perfect for destination elopements, garden parties, or even just a low maintenance bride.

INTRODUCING: BERNADETTE

Bernadette is a sweet thing, timeless and classic with a softly ruched v neckine, thick tank straps, and a gorgeous illusion button back. Her soft cashmere color is the perfect combination between champagne + blush (but don’t worry, she comes in all ivory and other color options, too!) We love her softly place lace appliques throughout the bodice and skirt, creating negative space and whimsical feel throughout the dress. Finished with a gorgeous charmeuse belt to match the color of the dress and you have the ultimate feminine gown!

INTRODUCING: BETTY

Betty is a STUNNER of a gown because let us tell you, she packs a punch when it comes to design details. This soft A-line gown features fully beaded lace appliques throughout, beaded and petite spaghetti straps, a modern plunging neckline, and a double layer of lace for dimension throughout the skirt. Her horsehair trim allows for a perfect flair of the baby train, the easiest thing to bustle and dance the night away in. We have her in store in Cashmere, a gorgeous blushy/taupe, but she can be ordered in multiple colors for whatever your heart desires!

INTRODUCING: ANYA

Anya is the perfect bohemian gown just waiting for her free-spirited bride. This A-line gown features petite spaghetti straps and off-the-shoulder flutter sleeves to add a touch of whimsy to the dress. Her fully beaded appliques have white/crystal beading, allowing you to shimmer with every step but play with whatever metal accents you want. (We think rose gold would be beautiful with this gown!) Her soft skirt features next to no volume, allowing your silhouette to be the true stunner in this babe. Top if all off with her trendy and modest scoop neckline and you really have a unique, yet classic gown.

INTRODUCING: ARCHER

Archer is a dress for a bride ready to celebrate. This super fun A-line gown features a double banded waistline, made to truly highlight your silhouette and elongate your torso. Her bold matte appliques throughout the bodice and skirt keep this dress down-to-earth while the slight beading through the belt adds a pop of sparkle. In store, we have her in a super edgy grey color, but she’s available in more traditional options for brides wanting to feel more “bridal.”

INTRODUCING: AMARA

Want a gown with a little va-va-voom to her? Then definitely check out Amara! If you’re a classic, timeless bride wanting a little bit of a Gatsby/art deco flair, this stunning A-line gown should definitely be on your list. She features a soft charmeuse silk skirt, making her comfortable yet sexy. Her silhouette shows off your hips while still flowing at the waist for easy dancing. Her banded waist, romantic off-the-shoulder neckline, filligree-based lace appliques, and button back all combine to create the perfect storm of modern yet jazzy.

INTRODUCING: BANNON

If you’re a long-sleeved bride, we didn’t forget about you! Bannon is a gorgeous lace illusion sleeved gown featuring a plunging v neckline, v back, geometric lace banded waist, and organic lace appliques throughout. She features minimal sparkle, instead focusing on the natural floral accents and keeping the bohemian vibes at the forefront. Her soft A-line skirt is perfect for dancing, chatting, and celebrating. Our Bannon is featured in Mocha, a gorgeously deep taupe color, but has many color palettes to choose from!

INTRODUCING: ADDIE

Are you more of a plain, chic type of bride? We’ve got you, boo!

This dress allows YOU to be the focus, with no sparkle or lace to take away from your natural beauty. We can totally see this gown in any setting, whether a traditional church or an outdoor garden party.

INTRODUCING: BILLIE

We shouldn’t pick favorites, but if we did, Billie would be pretty high up on the list. This strapless A-line gown features a plunging neckline, totally beaded appliques, and a super flowy skirt designed for celebrating the night away. We love her delicate train, which would make the easiest bustle, and the way the appliques trickle from the bodice through the skirt to add continuity to the look. Throw your hair up with a gorgeous veil, show off your shoulders, and you’re ready to party until the early morning with Billie!

These are our first few Opal and Lace dresses and we’re anxiously awaiting more! Which one is your favorite? Which NAME is your favorite? Let us know at your appointment or on Facebook and who knows – you might get a dress named after you!

Giddy up, y’all, and hold onto your cowgirl hats, because we have the coolest wedding we’ve seen in a hot minute about to drop on the blog! Our newest #dgbride Meghin literally created the most gorgeous wedding for her summertime ceremony marrying her soulmate, Tyler. Her modern take on a Western wedding is TO DIE FOR and her photographer, Bridget Nicole, has quickly jumped to a top favorite of ours. You’re going to want to steal every piece of Meghin’s wedding, so get ready to fall in love!

Meghin wore an absolutely fabulous Chic Nostalgia gown named “Quest,” which she customized with shoulder cuffs for an ultimate bohemian vibe. Her fitted strapless gown is a timeless silhouette, while her geometric and floral lace combination recreates the ultimate boho look. We love her totally unique and bespoke pieces to her wedding day look, too. From her leather buckle booties to her leather branded accents, we are OBSESSED with her styling. Just take a peek at her gorgeous bandana bouquet wrap!

Meghin kept her super edgy look classic and feminine by adding pearl accents in her jewelry and veil, which matched the petite beaded detailing throughout her dress. We love her gorgeously wild bouquet courtesy of Roots and Blooms was perfect – the pampas grass accented against the creamy, dusty florals complimented the nude undertone of her gown! Meghin had a vision for her wedding day look and we love how she stuck to it, regardless of how “nontraditional” it may seem. These are the photos you’ll remember forever, so wear what makes you feel the most confident and beautiful!

We can’t take credit for Tyler’s look, but his modern rustic grooms attire complimented Meghin perfectly. Everything from the leather accents to the pampas grass boutonniere was the ultimate pairing to Meghin’s sexy yet sophisticated Western look. They kept their bridal party casual and comfortable with flowy emerald chiffon dresses and casual attire for the groomsmen! Also, can we PLEASE talk about Meghin’s gorgeous sparkly romper she changed into for the reception?! Because while we can’t take credit for that fabulous frock, we can ABSOLUTELY be jealous of her style!

Congratulations, Meghin and Tyler! We cannot thank you enough for trusting Dress Gallery to style you for your big day. We truly believe that “Quest” was just waiting for you, the ultimate cool bride, to rock on your wedding day! We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter – something we’re sure you’ll have in abundance. Cheers to the Bowmans!

 

Guys! We have been anxiously awaiting to make this announcement….but our designer line is growing! Dress Gallery is officially a member of the Madi Lane family and we COULD NOT be more excited! This whimsical and romantic collection is destined to be the dream designer of some of our brides. A touch of boho, a touch of ethereal, a touch of royalty all mixed together to create a gorgeously stunning, perfectly crafted, and elegantly complimentary collection. You are going to want to RUN to try these dresses on and guess what? You’ll be one of the first in Wichita to be a Madi Lane bride! Now, let us introduce to you some of the babes that have newly arrived and a few we are still patiently waiting for!

INTRODUCING: COOPER

A sexy, simplistic stunner of a dress, Cooper is literally the dreamiest. Made from luxuriously soft crepe fabric, this dress is deceptive – she’s fitted, yet structured and is every bit as comfortable as you think she’d be. She features a plunging v neckline and a banded waist, highlighting the body and allowing for silhouette to be the forefront of this dress. The cute illusion button back adds just a touch of drama and if you want to turn the dial up on Cooper, she can come with a detachable scattered pearl overskirt. Flowy, fun, and feminine, this is a great way to add a touch of whimsical to your wedding look. You can remove the skirt during your dance party reception for easier movement and truly let YOU be the star of the show in this gown!

INTRODUCING: CALLIE

Say hello to Callie, a flowy strapless sweetheart gown featuring bold lace appliques, subtle sparkle, and the dreamiest neckline. This soft skirt is perfect for any bride wanting to float effortlessly through their wedding day. Her sheer bodice with exposed boning keeps this dress just softly sexy while staying in a classic, timeless silhouette. We love the rose-y undertone to this dress that truly allows the lace to POP! Style her with a detachable cap-sleeve illusion jacket for a quick change look for your reception. The jacket features a gorgeous keyhole back and button details, allowing for a little extra drama!

INTRODUCING: CARINA

We are so in love with Carina, a beautifully soft a-line gown featuring bold yet delicate lace appliques throughout. The petite spaghetti straps perfectly compliment the modest v neckline, allowing for a totally dreamy neckline that everyone will love. Her charmeuse internal liner is buttery soft, letting you feel the most comfortable and confident on your wedding day. She features clear sequins throughout the lace appliques, adding a hint of subtle sparkle that lets you shimmer with every stuff. This dress was truly made for dancing and celebrating with loved ones while amplifying your natural beauty.

INTRODUCING: CODY

Can’t decide between a lace and simplicity? Cody says you don’t have to. This silky smooth European crepe gown is dream, complete with interal stretch liner to allow you lots of motion. The classic sheath fit perfectly hugs curves while creating an effortlessly chic look. Her lace bodice features 3D florals, creating visual dimension and texture to contrast the simplistic skirt. Her supportive tank straps are modern and trendy, while her luxurious fabric and classic silhouette balances perfectly. We absolutely love her styled with her matching cathedral veil featuring multiple fold over layers, waved side cuts, and volume to add serious drama!

INTRODUCING: AVERY

Okay, y’all, you are gonna LOSE IT when you try on Avery. This absolutely stunning A-line gown is a literal dream, featuring the sexiest plunging neckline that is both modern yet traditional. Her bold lace appliques are gorgeous up close and even more defined and stunning from far away. The softly scooping yet open back features pearl buttons, a small yet classic detail we absolutely love. The best part? She secretly sparkles! An entire layer of glitter tulle peeks through the skirt beneath the lace allowing, you to shimmer with every step you take. Whether you’re doing a formal ceremony, an outdoor elopement, or anything in between, Avery is truly a perfect gown for any wedding type.

INTRODUCING: HAVEN

Ready to fall in love with Haven?! Because we certainly did. This sweet and soft strapless A-line gown features a billowing and full tulle skirt, the perfect middle ground between minimal and princess-y. We love how effortless and airy this full tulle gown looks, as if you could frolic into the sunset forever. Her delicately sequined lace appliques feature a trickle down pattern, creating dimension in the skirt with negative space. Haven can also come with a soft tulle shawl featuring matching lace, allowing for a delicate and different wedding day look.

INTRODUCING: AMELIE

We’re not supposed to play favorites, but if we did….Amelie would be a front runner. This beautiful, bold, and modern gown features the most gorgeous floral lace appliques throughout, totally sequined to shimmer in sunlight. Her off-the-shoulder neckline is actually detachable, allowing you to have a more comfortable strapless look if you decide. We personally love how soft and romantic the shoulder pieces look – great for a ceremony before changing into a party-friendly strapless. Her sheer bodice features peek-a-boo exposed boning, hiding beneath the beautiful lace, allowing for a hint of sexy against this feminine gown.

 

 

Okay, y’all, we’re showing off another #dgbride a little differently today. Total babe, Lauren, decided to take bridal portraits out in Colorado during her mountaintop elopement and we are HERE. FOR. IT. It’s not very often that brides decide to treat themselves to a photoshoot dedicated solely to them – and we think these fabulous shots courtesy of The Brightness Project are some of our favorites. (Psst – Lauren’s veil was even made by our consultant, Katie, and her business Heirloom Couture!)

Have you fallen absolutely in love yet?! Because we have. Lauren’s super bohemian, ultra sexy Chic Nostalgia gown featured a sweetheart neckline, petite pearl beading, a detailed waist band, and the most ethereal veil. Add in the naturally beautiful Colorado scenery and you have a total STUNNER. We love how Lauren styled her look with simplistic pearl jewelry and a soft flower crown!

I mean, seriously…..Lauren, you’re beaming! The golden hour lighting makes the blush undertone of her dress totally pop and we love the soft baby breath’s bouquet to add just a touch of whimsy!

Congratulations, Lauren, and thank you so much for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique! We loved styling you and will seriously not stop freaking out over these photos for years to come. Cheers to you!

Remember our first post about this photoshoot stylized by Couture Ever After? Well…..we’ve got more for you. The team went all out to create not one, not two, but FOUR looks between two real couples to showcase a multitude of dresses and suit attire. We absolutely loved being able to flex our creative muscles and pull some of our favorite boho dresses for this shoot. Thanks to our girl, Shelby, for these rockin’ images!

Guys – we are freaking out over this styled shoot we were invited to stylized by Couture Ever After. Nikki is truly a visionary in the wedding planning and event rental space; we always love seeing what her creative brain comes up with. Inspired by a dusty, romantic bohemian ceremony, Nikki created a custom backdrop and swing for this photoshoot – and then gave away a free photo session to a couple for Valentine’s Day! The whole team wanting to create a Valentine’s Day-inspired shoot unlike any other. There are so many great vendors to shout out, including our girl Free State Flora – peek the bottom of the post for a full list of vendors and links to their websites! (Quick S/O to Shelby Laine, because how dreamy are these photos?!)

If there’s a buzzword surrounding weddings currently, it’s definitely “bohemian.” We are huge fans of the boho trend here at Dress Gallery because it’s all-encompassing; so many details can fit under the boho umbrella, which gives brides plenty of opportunity to personalize their weddings while still having the vibes they’re looking for.

We had our boho brides in mind when choosing styles for 2021; we wanted to find unique dresses that encompassed the wild-and-free vibes our brides are wanting. Whether you’re wanting a sexy fitted gown or a whimsical a-line, here are 7 of our favorites from this upcoming season!

Introducing Olson, a stunning a-line Sottero & Midgley gown featuring the coolest medallion-styled lace panels, a sheer back, crystal buttons, a thin-yet-sexy spaghetti strap! The soft v-neck keeps this dress sophisticated yet modern and we love the movement that comes in this skirt. This is truly the ultimate beach destination dress.

Charli is a stunning fitted sheath gown from Wilderly Bride, featuring sheet lace with both floral and linear detailing. This dress features no sparkle, which is perfect for the bride looking to make a statement with her silhouette instead. The sweetheart neckline paired with narrow plunging v is super sexy yet classic!

Iris is an absolutely stunning dress that we can’t wait to see frolicking through a forest. This unique lace dress features art deco/floral/geometric detailing – it’s honestly so different, it’s a little bit of everything. The soft drape of the skirt is absolutely stunning, laying gently across the hips and folding gracefully through the puddle skirt. Add in a sheer back and super modern tie-strap detail and this is truly the dreamiest gown.

Adley is a stunning fitted gown from our bohemian designer, All Who Wander, featuring a super cool laser cut out lace pattern. This thick lace is a totally different look & feel than traditional lace; combined with the champagne undertone, this dress’s lack of sparkle doesn’t matter when the silhouette is this stunning. Add in a sophisticated high neck/plunging keyhole combination and you’re destined to be a stunner in this gown.

Speaking of cool, bold lace patterns…..can we introduce you to Celine? We absolutely love this fern-like lace, creating a silhouette that is absolutely stunning. This gown is truly for the bold – we can imagine this dress with a grand backdrop. She adds a touch of sparkle with heavily-pearled straps and a dramatic train keeps this baby ultra modern.

Looking for something simplistic, chic, and ultra comfortable? Let us match you with Daffodil, a Chic Nostalgia a-line stunner that is literally like wearing the most comfortable gown. The sheet lace bodice, side cut outs, petite spaghetti straps, and soft chiffon skirt make this dress dreamy and feminine!

Finally, introducing Emily, a scoop neck, heavily-beaded chiffon stunner we absolutely love. Is there anything more bohemian than fringe, really? We don’t think so. This dress is the ultimate combination between fun and traditional, letting you feel like a bride while keeping your whimsical personality at the forefront.

Which boho babe is your fav?! Let us know on Facebook and show us photos during your appointment; we’ll pull these dresses for you!

We’ve have been bursting at the seams to share these gorgeous photos of #dgcouple Autumn & Ryan! Autumn is actually a Dress Gallery employee during our super busy season January-March; she helps run our front desk and we would be totally lost without her. When her soul mate, Ryan, finally popped the question (using cow tags!!), we were so proud that she asked us to style her, Ryan, and their group. Check out these gorgeous photos courtesy of Jennifer Lynn Photos based out of Oklahoma!

Autumn knew she wanted her wedding to fit their Western/rustic vibe, but without the traditional burlap and mason jars we’ve seen in previous years. Complete with a neutral color palette and bohemian accents, we love how she turned her vision to life! Their wedding day was the perfect combination of traditional and unique, with every piece of their wedding having the best “Bergkamp twist” to it!

Autumn chose an aboslute stunner of a dress – Azale by Chic Nostalgia, a super cool, bold lace-patterened dress featuring a soft a-line skirt, secret beading throughout, and a nude undertone. Her high neckline was chic and modern combined with the super flirty, fun bell sleeves. Add in her dramatic keyhole back and this dress was truly the “Autumn” dress. We love that she styled it with loose curls and her signature cowgirl boots!

Autumn wanted her girls to feel fabulous and comfortable during the big day, so she opted for a mix-and-match bridesmaids palette that was as unique and beautiful as her girls were. This was the perfect decision, especially as a few of her bridesmaids were pregnant – this led them to choose dresses they felt the most comfortable in!

Her neutral color palette was vamped up by using different fabrics and textures, truly creating visual dimension in all of her photos. We love how the dresses vary and are as unique as the girls!

When it came to outfitting Ryan and his groomsmen, both Autumn & Ryan knew they wanted to keep their look traditional yet stylish. They chose navy suits over black to keep the look soft, but dressed up their suits by adding boots and hats. Combined with the girls’ multiple textures and we love how sharp this group turned out!

Alex, our menswear stylists, loved working with Ryan’s group. “I had a super great time working with the Bergkamps. Even though their group was HUGE, everyone was in good spirits and totally understood our rental & replacement policies. They allowed us to take care of them and then send them off to the best wedding weekend ever!”

Their September wedding was full of sunshine, laughter, and really, really good food. The Dress Gallery crew was so excited to wrap up our workday and head to their celebration after a busy Saturday! We love all of our brides, but especially when they are #dgbabes first, we have a super soft spot in our heart. We love you, Autumn!

Congratulations to the Bergkamps! We are so thankful for you, Autumn, and we wish you & Ryan a lifetime of love and happiness. We are beyond thrilled that you two have found each other; we have loved following your love story and are so grateful you included Dress Gallery both professionally and socially. Cheers to you both!
