Hold onto your horses, fam, because we have the CUTEST Western/Mexican-inspired wedding coming to grace the blog today. Our next #dgcouple, Tanya and Doyle, got married on Tanya’s RANCH – yes, you read that right! Tanya owns her own ranch in Western Kansas and is the type of bride who prides herself on hard work. Being an independent woman was important to her, so when she found Doyle, her partner who supported her love of livestock and animals, she knew he was the one. Their fabulous photographer, Gentle Rayne, was a perfect choice to showcase their down-to-earth, totally natural wedding day. You’re going to LOVE the bright pops of colors, Mexican accents, and totally infectious smiles throughout all these sneak peek photos!

WE MADE A HORSE PUN BUT WE WERE SERIOUS, Y’ALL! Since their animals are such an important part of their daily lives, it only made sense to include their favorite furry loved ones in their wedding photos! We love ANY opportunity for our brides to showcase their passions on their wedding day and we love how totally unique Tanya’s photos turned out! Both their wedding day looks were the perfect combination of formal, yet comfortable for their celebration-focus receptions. The entire day was all about being comfortable and confident while partying with close friends and loved ones!

Tanya chose an absolutely STUNNING fitted Morilee gown, complete with stretch liner (which was a must for riding on her wedding day!) We wanted a silhouette that showcased her curves while still allowing Tanya to be the star of the show. Tanya is petite, so all of our sample dresses in store DROWNED her. We knew that alterations would be an important thing to consider since her height would mean cutting off multiple inches from each dress. Instead, we focused on designers that did custom heights and petite styles so that Tanya could feel her best, but also have a gown made to her proportions!

Her soft off-the-shoulder gown, Morilee style 3303, was ordered in Morilee’s most petite length, meaning Tanya was able to find her perfect gown without sacrificing over a foot off the bottom of the dress! We love that she trusted her gut and chose a dress that showed off her figure while still allowing her to move freely throughout the day. Add in her gorgeous illusion back, complete with buttons down the train, and soft sequining throughout the gown and you have a STUNNER for this Western-inspired wedding!

Tanya’s girls chose stunning Kanali K styles all their own, while keeping the look cohesive by having everyone in their gorgeous “Petal” color. Her maid of honor stood out amongst the crowd in a stunning Romance color, allowing for color dimension in the photos while also having her most important maid stand out! We had an absolute blast styling these girls; they were ALWAYS a bundle of fun and down to be the center of the party!

For Doyle and his men, we decided to keep the look down-to-earth and totally fitting of their jeans-and-boots vibe. We dressed Doyle up in a gorgeous tan jacket, having him match Tanya’s formality in her gown, while keeping the rest of his men in our Rustic Package. They were able to wear their own jeans and boots while having us style their vests, ties, and shirts so they color matched the bridesmaids! We love this combination for rustic or Western-themed weddings; the groom gets to be a little more dressed up in his jacket, while his guys get a comfortable, affordable package that we can color match to any color palette!

Congratulations, Tanya and Doyle! We absolutely LOVED getting to know you both and helping you style your group. You were all A BLAST and we are so thankful you kept us laughing every time your group arrived. We are secretly sad y’all are done with the “wedding” because can’t you just get married every year to come hang out with us?! Thank you again for trusting Dress Gallery – we wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and good beer. Cheers to the LaRosh’s!

Y’all, we are DYING over our next #dgcouple. Mariana and Daniel have been together for TWELVE YEARS before they tied in the knot in a gorgeously traditional Christian Orthodox ceremony at St. George’s in Wichita. Their reception featured great food, dancing, and flowing cocktails at Newport Grill for a full night of luxurious fun . As a BFF to one of our consultants, Mariana had high expectations for her wedding and we are happy to announce her photographers, Kay x Bee, KILLED their wedding album. Get ready to lose it over this couple, y’all! You’re gonna wanna steal ALL these deets!

For her wedding gown, Mariana chose an absolutely STUNNING Allure Couture gown (style C586) that was at Dress Gallery for one weekend only during our Allure Couture trunk show. After attempting a few different routes to find her perfect gown, FATE knew better than we did and sent her perfect dress on a Monday morning courtesy of our Allure rep. Immediately, her consultant, Courtney, sent her a text message saying “I THINK I FOUND IT!” And we did! She fell in love, placed the order, and we sent the sample back in less than one week – it was truly meant to be!

Her Allure Couture gown features HEAVY beading throughout the bodice and skirt, with everything from silver to pearl to crystal accents, allowing Mariana to sparkle at literally every turn. Her off-the-shoulder neckline kept her look romantic, while still showing off her gorgeous collar bones, shoulders, and girls. We wanted a fitted dress that highlighted her silhouette, but KNEW she’d be dancing the night away, so the stretch charmeuse liner in this gown was a perfect fit. Add in her DRAMATIC tiara and silk English Tulle cathedral veil (also available at DG!) and you have the dreamiest, most Queen-like wedding vision we’ve seen in a LONG time!

When it came to styling Dan + the male family members, Mariana knew she wanted a crisp, clean, ultra classic look – so black + ivory it was. Dan wore our Braydon style tuxedo, featuring a shawl lapel and a simplistic black tie. We kept Daniel looking expensive by choosing silk/satin accents, such as his pocket square, to highlight against Mariana’s gorgeous dress! This couple wanted the ultimate black tie feeling for their wedding and we LOVE that their photos show off how classy their entire event is!

Congratulations to you both, Mariana and Daniel! We loved getting to know both of you throughout your wedding planning journey. We know it got a little CRAZY there for a hot second, but we totally appreciate you trusting Dress Gallery to style you for such an important event. We are so thankful you are both members of the DG fam; we’re going to be showing you off for years to come. Now, cheers to the Nguyens!

Alright, y’all, we are SO EXCITED to showcase one of our newest #dgbrides, Sarah! Sarah married her soulmate, James, in a gorgeously romantic ceremony this past summer after rescheduling their 2020 wedding. Despite the set backs, Sarah and James’s wedding was the ultimate testament to their love. Their photographer, Justin Casanova Photography, used his distinct editing style (clear, crisp, timeless) to create one of our favorite galleries in a longtime. Get ready to fall in love with this gorgeous family + their love!

For her bridal gown, Sarah went with an absolutely stunning and sexy Essense of Australia gown. This fitted beauty featured a stretch liner, making it possible for James to twirl her throughout the night (as witnessed above!) Her petite spaghetti straps were delicately beaded, dipping slowly into a dramatically low back featuring lined beadwork throughout. Her v neck featured a peek-a-boo plunge, keeping her sexy yet supported throughout the day. Finally, Sarah chose to order her gown in Essense’s stunning Moscato color, which was a perfect compliment to her dusty wine color palette! Style D2771 should be HIGH up on your list if you want a gorgeously fitted gown made for a night of movement!

Like for real, LOOK AT THAT BACK! We have very few dresses in the store with backs as low as this one, so we love that Sarah chose to make a statement. Her dress also features a soft layer of glitter tulle beneath the lace, allowing her to shimmer with every step without feeling bedazzled for her big day!

When it came to bridesmaids, Sarah kept her style classic by choosing a deep burgundy wine color. This ultra flattering shade looks gorgeous on anyone’s skin tones while also feels rich and deep enough to be slimming, like black. We love how they popped against her dusty florals and added a touch of moodiness to the day! We styled Sarah’s girls in various designers, yet color matched to create a totally cohesive look.

How cute is this girl group?! We wish we could take credit for these littles, but this was all Sarah! We love the blush accents to separate the juniors, but make them feel a part of the group. Some of our bridesmaids dress designers carry junior bridesmaids styles/sizes, so ask during your appointment and we’ll walk you through styling your littlest girls!

Cheers to the Mureithis! Thank you so much, Sarah, for including us in your bridal planning. It means a lot that you trusted us to style you for such an important day and we are grateful you’re a DG bride. We are so excited to finally see these gorgeous photos, despite any delays you and James faced. We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter!

 

Okay, y’all, we have one of the CUTEST #dgcouples to introduce you to! Alex and Linda married in a stunningly gorgeous wintertime ceremony in December 2020, but their glowing photos made the day feel as bright as could be! Their photographer, Brianna Huynh, was so good at capturing their gorgeous moments. This interracial couple held both a traditional tea ceremony along with a modern ceremony to honor both cultures, which we absolutely love. Check out their photos below and get ready to fall heels-over-head!

Linda chose an absolutely stunning strapless A-line gown for her big day from designer Essense of Australia. The delicate lace appliques are perfectly placed throughout the bodice and skirt. We LOVE her billowy organza skirt – such a luxurious and soft fabric that delicately reflected in the light. This gown was perfect for allowing Linda to dance the night away while highlighting her petite shoulders, gorgeous silhouette, and fabulous frame!

We kept Alex’s look timeless and chic by choosing classic black. Their neutral color palette was the perfect accent against Linda’s softly champagne gown. We love Alex’s subtle texture in his vest and tie, allowing for their classic look to be elevated to modern and trendy.

Check out these gorgeous photos from their traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony! We can’t take ANY credit for their stunning outfits, but we are always so honored when couples share their cultural ceremonies with us. It’s so touching when they allow us a small glimpse into wedding ceremonies from their families’ past!

Alex and Linda celebrated their Western wedding ceremony at the Wichita Art Museum, a perfect backdrop for their modern-yet-classic wedding. We love how the soft accents of the day are complimented against the gorgeous glass in the art museum. Plus, we might be biased, but don’t they look like art?!

Cheers to the Richardsons! Thank you so much, Linda + Alex, for choosing Dress Gallery to style you for your big day. We genuinely loved working with you and could feel your love every time you walked through the door. You were both such a blessing and we’re thankful you are a #dgcouple! We wish you a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter. Congratulations! (:

HOLD UP, FAM. These next pictures are spice level 100000 and we wanna give you warning about how hot our next #dgbride, Erin is! She married her husband, Brandon, during an absolutely airy + gorgeous ceremony in April 2021. Their day was full of light, love, and laughter – perfectly captured by their photographer, Lyndi Mishe, who has been totally killing all of her wedding galleries lately. You are going to want to 1. Become Erin’s BFF and 2. Book Lyndi for your wedding as soon as you see these photos!

RIGHT??? WE WEREN’T KIDDIN. Everything from Erin’s dramatic fit-and-flare Morilee gown to her gorgeously extended nails to her whimsical hair piece was absolutely stunning. Her wedding look was classically gorgeous, with her hair and makeup giving us some serious Marilyn Monroe vibes. Brandon’s classic look was a great compliment to her ivory gown, completed with a perfect belt to highlight Erin’s waist. WE TOLD YOU IT WAS SPICY!

We can’t take credit for Brandon’s look, but Erin will go down as one of our favorites forever in her Morilee gown. Her gorgeous train was a perfect dramatic entrance and made for beautiful photos. We love her strapless look for early spring, allowing her to hug loved ones and dance comfortably all night with no issues. Her linear lace accents highlighted her silhouette and we love that she accented her waistline with a dainty bridal belt!

Congratulations to the Browns! Erin, we are so thankful you chose Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique and you trusted us with your wedding vision.  You were truly a dream on your wedding day and we can’t wait to show you off for years to come. We wish you and Brandon a lifetime of love and laughter – something we’re sure you’ll have after seeing your celebratory day. Congrats to you!
