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!

Introducing our newest #dgbride, Karlee! Karlee married her soulmate, Caleb, during a gorgeous November ceremony surrounded by dreamy Kansas prairie and pops of red, white, and blue! We fell heels-over-head for these stunning photos courtesy of Brittany McCloskey Photography. If you’re looking for bright, airy, and timeless, Brittany is your girl! Peek Karlee’s down-to-earth wedding below!

When it came to finding Karlee’s dream dress, she knew she wanted something vintage and feminine. Her gorgeous multi-layered Stella York gown featured two layers of lace, a Moscato undertone, and petite train. We love that her gown focused more on the silhouette of her body instead of heavy bling; her lacy gown was perfect for the backdrop of their wedding!

We loved how Karlee kept her wedding day look natural and feminine. Her pops of bright blues and reds were a great juxtaposition for the moody autumnal backdrop. This kept her color palette upbeat and made for stunning florals, particularly against the blue of the bridesmaids & menswear attire!

Can we talk, really fast, about how perfect Karlee’s wedding day look is? Her soft up-do perfectly showed off her collarbones and the gorgeous illusion back of her dress but mostly, we loved that she styled her gown in her glasses. Girls who wear specs – we are ALL FOR brides rockin’ them on their wedding day, especially if that’s authentic to who you are. We love when brides decide to stay true to themselves, contacts be damned!

Congratulations to the McCaffree’s! Thank you so much, Karlee, for trusting us to style you for your big day. We are so thankful to have played a small part in your wedding ceremony. We wish you & Caleb a lifetime of love and happiness!

Petite and fabulous #dgbride Mariana married her soulmate, Tanner, on August 1, 2020. Their photographer, Cultivated Moments, captured these gorgeous traditional photos of Mariana and her new hubs and they are stunning. Like, seriously! Check out her customized Stella York gown below!

Mariana is the definition of the word cute – literally everything about her warm, polite personality is the cutest. Her height is also the absolute cutest, however looooooooong all of the dresses were on her! Because most dresses are made a standard length for 5’10 women, that meant that Mariana was looking at astronomical alterations – and to be honest, the dress wouldn’t have looked the same afterward!

The solution? We did custom measurements for her height, which allowed her to bypass hem alterations. By doing this, this allowed the dress to be made for Mariana’s petite height in mind! This created her Stella York gown proportionally for her, making sure that every detail we loved in the store looked just as it should on her special day.

Her perfect fitted Stella York gown featured sequined lace appliques throughout, a stunning soft v-neckline with wide straps leading into a sophisticated yet sexy illusion back. Combined with the traditional train and hemlace, this dress fit perfectly with her church ceremony! We love how she accented her gown with a bouquet of soft pinks, ivory, and natural greenery.

With a soft updo and a fingertip length lace veil, Mariana looked like the ultimate classic, timeless bride! Thank you so much, Mariana, for allowing us the opportunity to style you for your wedding and for trusting us with special measurements. We know it can be nervewracking! We wish you & Tanner a lifetime of love and happiness. Cheers to the Tuckers!
