It’s time to introduce one of our newest #dgbrides, India! India and her soulmate, James, had to reschedule their 2020 wedding due to COVID-19, but their anxiously awaited day was full of love and laughter. Their photographer, our girl Shelby Laine, was a perfect fit for this goofy, fun-loving couple! You’re gonna lose it over her customized Moonlight Couture gown, so without further ado: India + James!

Okay, but like, we weren’t kidding when we said this couple was full of love and light! India’s totally customized Moonlight Couture gown was totally perfect for her romantic yet edgy day. We changed the bodice lining color to a gorgeous Cashmere color to match India’s wedding palette much better. We also added permanent spaghetti straps to add extra support throughout the day, allowing India to dance and groove without worrying! Her ruffle skirt created lots of drama and volume while the beaded bodice kept her shimmering with every step!

Can we also talk about how COOL India’s total wedding day look is? We’re a little biased when tattooed brides decide to show off their ink on wedding day, but India’s super edgy vibe mixed with such a romantic, traditional ballgown is giving us LIFE in the best way. She’s a perfect example of wearing what YOU feel best in on your wedding day, not necessarily what you ~think you have to be in. If a ballgown makes you feel most bridal, do it! We love that India wasn’t afraid to bling herself out on wedding day, while also customizing a dress to make it feel special to her. Her simplistic accessories allow the dress and her silhouette to be the true stunner in this dress!

Love James’ super cool green suit look?! We can’t take credit for his exact styling, but if you have similar taste to James’, we definitely have some GREAT colored suit options that can make your groom look ultra fashion-forward! Ask your consultant about our unique menswear options during your consultation.

Congratulations, James and India! We cannot thank you enough for trusting us for such an important part of your wedding day. India, we are so glad you put your faith in such a gorgeous customized gown – truly, it’s one of a kind, just like you. We wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness, something we are such you’ll have in abundance. Now, go celebrate! Cheers to the Nance’s!

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!

 

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!
