We love ALL of our brides, seriously, but we’ve EXTRA biased when a #dgbride is a DG employee! Our newest consultant, Darian, started at Dress Gallery two weeks after her wedding to her soulmate, Will! Darian and Will decided they wanted a true fresh start – new careers, new marriage, new puppy, new chapters! Their photographer, Evangelyn Byall-Craig, was a perfect fit for their vintage and traditional wedding. You’re gonna LOSE IT over Darian’s dress and details. Without further ado, our girl Darian!

Darian chose an absolutely STUNNING Martina Liana gown she purchased off-the-rack, which means she got a rockin’ deal on a couture designer. This fitted spaghetti strap dress features delicately beaded straps, a sexy open back, multiple layers of lace, and the most perfect v neckline. Her dress was a beautiful balance of traditional, yet modern; sexy, yet sophisticated. With Darian’s petite frame, we love that she went with a fitted silhouette to really highlight her body and allow her to feel extra bridal!

Can we PLEASE talk about how Darian clearly mastered the “smize?!” Tyra Banks would be SO PROUD of this girl’s modeling skills! Her total wedding day look was part edgy, part sexy, part traditional, all combined to create the most gorgeously romantic look we’ve seen. Combined with her billowing curls, soft bridal updo, and gorgeous cathedral veil, Darian had ALL the drama for her wedding day and we are HERE. FOR. IT.

We were also lucky enough to style Darian’s girls for her special day as well! Darian knew she wanted her wedding day to feel romantic and airy, which was perfect for her summertime wedding. Her dusty color palette matched the organic wedding venue and we love how her Kanali K bridesmaids dresses accented against her ivory gown and the pops of color in the bouquets! Darian had her girls feel comfortable by choosing whatever style they preferred, but kept her palette simplistic by keeping everything in a single dusty tone. This color palette is romantic and timeless for sure!

Cheers to you, Darian and Will! We are so thankful you decided to trust us for your wedding day. And maybe we’re biased because you’re an official DG family member now, but your wedding is gonna go down as one of our favorites forever. We love you and Will and are SO EXCITED to watch your marriage + family grow as you grow within Dress Gallery. And let’s be honest, boo, we’re biased because you look SMOKING in that Martina gown. Thank you for trusting us and thanks for becoming family. Congratulations to the Kings!

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!

 

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!

Okay, y’all, we cannot wait to show off this next #dgbride, who wore a CUSTOM Moonlight Couture gown on her wedding day! Andrea married her soulmate, Nick, in a gorgeously summery ceremony accented with pops of bright berrylicious colors. Her wedding was photographed by veteran Sara Rieth, which we truly think was a wedding pair made in heaven. Sara’s bright and elegant shooting style was the perfect compliment to Andrea’s soft and feminine wedding. Check out some of our favorite shots below!

Andrea and Nick met while students at K-State and they have the BEST “meet cute” we’ve heard in a long time! Nick used his excellent persuasive skills to negotiate a deal with Andrea – 20 chicken nuggets per digit of her phone number. Andrea was smitten with how witty and unique Nick was and, despite cheering for opposite sports teams and being Wildcats living in Lawrence for a while, their love grew through mutual interests – including a love of chicken nuggets!

We’re a little biased, but we are IN LOVE with Andrea’s wedding gown. It’s truly one-of-a-kind; Andrea worked with Moonlight Couture, one of our customizable designers, to help create a dress she absolutely loved. There were pieces of two different gowns that attracted Andrea and, like a lot of brides, she wished “Can’t we just put them together?!” Occasionally, the answer to that question is an enthusiastic “YES!”, so we were able to give Andrea the sparkly ballgown look of her dreams!

Andrea’s large ballgown features delicate spaghetti straps with lace off-the-shoulder sleeves, a modest yet alluring v neckline, bold floral lace appliques throughout the skirt, and an entire layer of glitter tulle! Plus, we ordered this babe in all ivory, making her extra bright in natural light. We wanted this dress to SPARKLE, so we packed this gown with customizable glitter to give Andrea the “WOW” statement she was looking for. Plus, we LOVE how she paired her wedding day look with an upscale bridal ponytail – beautiful, yet practical for dancing the night away!

Andrea kept Nick looking classic and handsome in a cobalt navy suit with matching berry toned accents. Combined with her natural greenery and the gorgeous green backdrops of their venue, this wedding was the epitome of summertime love!

Thank you so much, Andrea, for trusting us to help you CREATE your wedding day look. We know it’s a little nervewracking to say “yes” to a dress that hasn’t been made yet, but your faith in us means everything. We hope that you love your completed Moonlight Couture look as much as the designers do! We wish you + Nick a lifetime of love, happiness, and Big Red wins. Now – go eat some extra chicken nuggets for us! Cheers to you both!

 

Hokay, y’all, get some water ready because this next #dgbride is spicy, spicy, spicy!! Please give a warm introduction to Peyton, a fantabulous DG babe who rocked a sexy and sultry Martina Liana gown on her moody wedding day. Peyton is stylist at No Coast Salon, which is located directly diagonal from us here in Delano! So we’re a little biased, because not only is she a DG bride, but she’s also a local community member whom we love to support! Check out her fabulous photos courtesy of our girl, Shelby Laine – you know, the real MVP!

Peyton’s wedding day was the ultimate dreamy, classic day. She kept her color palette neutral, focusing on ivory, black, and natural greenery, allowing for everyone’s natural beauty to be the true focus. Her classic black tuxes kept the entire day formal yet timeless, which was perfect for their day at The Barn at Grace Hill! The venue’s natural beauty made it so Peyton could keep her entire decor simplistic and chic.

Peyton chose an absolutely stunning Martina Liana gown with bespoke off-the-shoulder straps. Her ivory-on-ivory dress sparkled effortlessly and we LOVE the plunging neckline and illusion back – the definition of sexy! Add in her dramatic train and this gown is truly a show stopper. We also love how Peyton made it her own by creating the off-the-shoulder straps specifically for her bridal day look.

Are you surprised that her hair and makeup were perfect?! We sure weren’t. When you work with the No Coast Salon girls, you’re guaranteed to look absolutely ROCKING on your wedding day! Peyton’s classic bridal updo featuring messy, face-framing pieces, statement earrings, and cathedral veil definitely made the whole look a “WOW” type of moment.

Okay, but really – have you seen a more smokin’ hot couple?! We love that Peyton kept her groom’s look totally lowkey and stylish. His classic black tux really dressed up the day, while also keeping his look totally classic. Add in her gorgeous ivory roses as accents and we fell heels-over-head! This is the definition of a formal, stylish, yet totally chic wedding day.

Congratulations to the Youngs! Peyton, we so appreciate you choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We loved styling you, helping you find your perfect look, and love cheering you on from across the street. We wish you & Brittain a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter! Cheers to you both!

 

So, if you’re like us, you’re obsessed with Netflix’s Selling Sunset. If you’re not, let us catch you up: Netflix’s first ever reality docu-series featuring the elite real estate agents in Los Angeles’s Oppenheim Group. Focused around a group of trendy, fashionista women, Netflix definitely has a hit on their hands with this show. The combination of wealthy, luxurious houses and petty office drama keeps viewers rapt with attention.

In the third season, Christine Quinn surprised her coworkers with an engagement and quick wedding ceremony shortly after. Her over-the-top wedding vision was a Gothic Winter Wonderland, complete with bleeding heart cakes, black swans, and literal snow. We expect nothing else from her. Here are some behind-the-scenes tidbits about the most show stopping wedding of the year!

Christine and Christian’s wedding ceremony started as an ethereal white winder wonderland, accompanied by real snow as Christine walked down the aisle. Her extravagant floral arrangements were accented with real painted trees and white roses everywhere!

Her black Galia Lahav gown was custom made for her. Known for their couture gowns, Galia made their first ever black wedding dress for Christine’s edgy vibe. She accompanied the gorgeous fitted dress with a dramatic overskirt! When removed, her sexy fitted gown featured ostrich feathers on the train and a super trendy neckline. Her guests also wore all white, leaving the bride & groom as the focal point in a sea of ivory.

During the cocktail hour, the gorgeous ethereal white got a gothic, ghoulish makeover, with dry ice smoke, red roses, black swans, gold candelabras, and more. The lighting of the event even changed, originally a glowing warm white changed into an intimate red. Christine’s 4 tiered black wedding cake featured a separate cake that bled when cut into – an extra spooky detail that matched her edgy vibe!

All in all, what was the total cost of the wedding? No one knows for sure! “It was over a million dollars, definitely,” wedding planner Lisa Lafferty. “The budget was ‘love,’ so we went above and beyond for Christine.”
