Okay, guys, we’ve been holding onto this ultra hot #dgcouple since their beautiful autumn wedding and it’s time to finally release our love to the world. Super fabulous bride Arin married her soulmate, Jacob, in an ethereally bohemian ceremony complete with dried florals, canoe canoodling, a sexy surprise, and a totally customized gown. We LOVE the details accented throughout this wedding because Arin totally committed in every aspect. Our girl Shelby Laine was the perfect partner as their wedding photographer, capable of catching the unique and silly moments just as well as the sultry, romantic ones. Arin is one of our ONLY bride in this gown and she even customized it to make it perfectly unique to her. Get ready to fall in love with this ultra chic wedding in these shots below!

Arin is a hairstylist based in Winfield, which means she had a VISION for her wedding day and that she executed to perfection. We love her super ultra, extra bold dried floral hair accessory in lieu of a veil along with her whimsically flowy Chic Nostalgia gown. Her base dress is Penelope, a stunning strapless A-line gown featuring a plunging sweetheart neckline and bold, sequined lace appliques through the bodice. The detached, off-the-shoulder bishop sleeves create a super fun, ultra funky look that was totally unique for Arin’s wedding day. She spiced up the gown by choosing to do a neutral undertone and added a sexy slit in one side for an extra pop of drama!

When it came to styling Jacob’s guys, we customized the look they were wanting by mix-and-matching some of our purchase and rental options. Jacob preferred the look of our linen sand suit, which is available for purchase, but didn’t need the jacket for his guys’ casual look. The groomsmen purchased their pants (which were casual enough to get some serious reuse out of them!), while rented the rest of their look. Doing this allowed for Jacob and Arin to get the exact look they wanted, while their guys got the best bang for their buck by keeping the item they’d reuse most, but renting what might be a one-time wear!

Arin’s girls needed looks that were JUST as spicy and fun as her wedding day style. We chose a mix-matched color palette in her dusty-neutral inspiration, allowing the girls to choose styles + colors they felt comfortable and confident in. We found some great Morilee bridesmaids dresses in fabulous colors, including their Fawn, Spice, Latte colors that create the ultimate autumn collection! We can’t take credit for ALL of her ‘maids, as Arin was fashion-forward and wanted some velvet colors that our designers were a season behind for. Love her look, though? NEVER FEAR! We have some GREAT new browns + taupes in our velvet options to create this same color palette along with different textures!

Seriously – what a FUN wedding day! We were all smiles looking at the Behrhorst wedding gallery. Jacob and Arin, thank you SO MUCH for trusting Dress Gallery to style you. We had an absolute blast getting to know you both. We have a feeling that brides are going to be showing us your wedding photos for years to come. We wish you and your family the absolute best in your life together. Now, cheers to you – and go drink one for us!

Alright, guys, this wedding is a HOT ONE and y’all better be ready! Our next #dgbride we can’t wait to introduce is Bri, who married her soulmate, Parker, in a super stunning, elegant, yet secretly-sexy ceremony. Their photographer, Katy Elaine, was literally the PERFECT choice for the Vanderhoofen’s. Katy’s unique yet elegant style of photography, along with her ability to capture those tiny, intimate moments between the bride + groom, had us BAWLING over this album y’all. Get ready to fall in love with their entire day below:

Bri and Parker envisioned a romantic, neutral, classic wedding for their day, keeping with a black-and-ivory theme with pops of pastel peaches to accent. Their timeless wedding day totally fit their traditional vibe while still being full of bright, fun accents that complimented their fun personality. Bri chose a stunningly unique Chic Nostalgia gown, (style Zelda), which was the perfect balance between bohemian and classic that she was looking for!

Sorry, not sorry for the photo overload of Bri! Her absolutely stunning Chic Nostalgia gown featured an A-line silhouette with a gorgeously geometric banded waist, highlighting Bri’s waistline and flowing effortlessly into the textured tulle skirt. Her soft ruffles throughout the skirt allowed for extra movement and whimsy while also creating design features unseen in other dresses. We love the soft 3D florals and beading throughout her bodice along with a keyhole back that help catches attention from any angle!

When it came to styling Bri’s girls, she knew she wanted to keep everything simple and classic in black dresses. She allowed her girls to pick their own styles so they felt confident and comfortable on wedding day! She chose simple Morilee chiffon bridesmaids dresses in black, which totally gives the girls freedom to show off their personalities comfortably. Plus, they were able to groove all night long with their comfortable fits!

We can’t take credit for Parker’s classic black look, but have similar styles for any groom wanting to mirror his black-and-ivory vibe! We love how timeless a black tuxedo looks; it’s an outfit that looks great for generations while always feeling modern! Pair with a patterned tie, a slight metallic, or a cool pop of color to match your wedding if you’re wanting an extra pop of “WOW!” for your groom.

Congratulations, Bri and Parker! We are so thankful you trusted us to be your bridal boutique. We LOVED getting to know you both, your fun group of girls, and your beautiful little family. We’re excited to watch you all grow in your love. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and laughter. Cheers to the Vanderhoofens!

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!

 

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!

Time to show off one super sexy, ultra cool, boho #dgbride! Introducing Cambry, who married her sweetheart Elliott in a super luxurious ceremony in March 2021. Their springtime ceremony featured bright florals, emerald green accents, and the most stunning bohemian wedding dress – but we might be a little biased. Shout out to our resident favorite, Shelby Laine, for these rockin’ photos of Cambry’s wedding!

Cambry chose an absolutely stunning strapless Chic Nostalgia gown featuring a soft fit-and-flare silhouette, delicate sheet lace with eyelash trim, and pearl accents throughout! This gown is one of our favorites, showing off Cambry’s body while also allowing her to be comfortable all night! We love how she paired her look with wild curls, fresh florals, and a delicate tulle cape-veil!

Can we talk about her gorgeously moody fresh florals?! We love the pops of deep purples and greens against the bright springtime backdrop! Elliott kept his look classic and airy by choosing a light grey suit that perfectly compliments Cambry’s ethereal gown.

Cheers to the Gossetts! Thank you so much, Cambry, for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We loved getting to know you and help you find your fabulous bohemian gown. We wish you both a lifetime of love & happiness!

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!

Okay, guys, buckle up – we are getting in our feels for a second about our next #dgbride. Let us introduce you to Ashley, who is not only a bodacious Dress Gallery bride, but she’s also 1/2 of the dynamic wedding photography duo Kay + Bee photography, along with 1/2 of the badass podcast team The Bridal Breakdown. Ashley is literally a wedding professional in every sense of the word, so when she chose Dress Gallery as her bridal boutique, we were beyond honored. Ashley married her soulmate, Justin, during a super intimate and private ceremony in March 2020 – yep, you read that correctly. Ashley and Justin braved the very beginning of the pandemic craziness to elope in the Flint Hills and their pictures are all the more gorgeous for it. Take a peek at some of our favorites, shot by Ashley K – you know, the other half of Kay + Bee!

Being a wedding photographer, Ashley has seen bridal gowns literally every weekend for most of her adult life. Because of this, she knew exactly what she did and did not want. When it came to shopping, Ashley popped in during a slow Tuesday afternoon with just her mother; she worked with Katie to customize her Chic Nostalgia gown into exactly what she was looking for. We changed the neckline of her gown slightly in order to make it perfectly Ashley. Her soft, elegant beading kept her dress glam, but sophisticated and we loved the super bohemian lace pattern!

We’re also biased because we love Ashley’s style always, but we love how she styled her wedding day look. Her edgy snakeskin booties added the perfect pop of rock-n-roll to her romantic wedding and her sophisticated party ponytail kept her look ultra modern. Add in her dried florals and greenery along with organic accents like sticks and you have a super cool, super laid back bohemian wedding. Can we also please freak out over her starburst earrings? Because they’re literally fabulous.

We wish we could say that Justin looked stunning thanks to us, but we gotta be honest – that was all Ashley, too. She picked a textured tweed suit with floral accents. We love the multi-patterned look Justin’s rocking, complete with a sleek, satin gold tie to truly pull the look altogether.

We could go on and on about Ashley’s wedding planning, her vision, her thoughts, her experiences….but honestly, Ashley herself has already written a blog about it and she’s a thousand times more eloquent than we’d ever be. She was so thoughtful and intentional about her wedding planning; we love how she truly crafted her day by choosing what was special to her and Justin. Add in a crazy pandemic to the mix and there was a lot of uncertainty regarding their day.

Her blog, My Intimate Wedding – Shifting My Mindset Amidst A Global Pandemic, is a first-hand account of her wedding planning and perseverance during a crazy time. Take a peek and give it a look!

Ashley and Justin – we wish you both a happy anniversary and many more years of love, laughter, and happiness. To Ashley – we are so thankful for you. We are always so thrilled whenever we get to work with you and it is truly a blessing for us to have you be a #dgbride. Thank you for all the wonderful work you do for your brides – and, by extension, the beautiful images of our brides you let us use. Cheers to the Akins!

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!
