Get ready to celebrate love today, fam, with our newest #dgbride, Ciara! Haley married her partner, Haley, in a stunningly fun, upbeat, and funky ceremony this past summer. Their entire day was filled with love and laughter, plus some really, really sharp fashion. Our favorite chick Shelby Laine was their wedding photographer, which was honestly a match made in wedding vendor heaven. After seeing these photos, you’re gonna wanna become fast friends with this couple – and copy their wedding ideas. Let’s be honest, we do! Take a peek below:

Ciara and Haley’s day was down-to-earth and celebratory – the entire focus was truly on their love and the party, not the frills and decor. Ciara kept her look totally relaxed and comfortable with her flowy Moonlight Tango gown, featuring white/crystal beading throughout the bodice and a stunning soft blush undertone. Her petite tank straps perfectly accented her shoulders while the soft v neck kept her look sexy, yet supportive the whole day! This dress was the perfect choice to hug guests, play games, and dance the entire night away in.

Can we PLEASE talk about how stunning Ciara’s wedding look is? Bohemian yet glam, polished yet effortless. Her gorgeously curly hair makes us jealous with its’ volum and her soft crystal/mixed metal/mixed gem accents perfectly fit the vibe. We love that she kept her bouquet petite and subtle, like her gown, allowing her natural beauty to really be the star! Plus, the dried florals and pampas grass look creamy and dreamy against the blush of her dress.

We can’t take credit for Haley’s fabulous look, but is there anything cooler than a suit elevated to street wear? We don’t think so. Her formal suit keeps her look perfect for a wedding, but her crisp ivory white hat and shoes accent her look and give it MASSIVE personality. This super cool combination of upscale yet modern is what we love to see from our couples. Wear whatever YOU makes you feel confident and fabulous. For Haley, it was a backwards ball cap on her wedding day and we are HERE. FOR. IT.

Congratulations, Ciara and Haley! Thank you so much for trusting us to style you for your big day. We can’t thank you enough for letting us be a small part of such an important day in your lives. We wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness. Cheers to the Mortimers!

It’s time for a #dgbrides throwback! Happy 2nd anniversary to Amy & Rhiannon, one of our power couples, who got married in May 2018 in a bright, airy, romantic ceremony. Check out their gorgeous photos thanks to Kingmon Creative based out of Los Angeles, California!

Dress Gallery consultant, Katie, was lucky enough to be the stylist for both of these fabulous women. Being able to help both Amy & Rhiannon was so fun for her! Not only did it allow her to pick dresses that perfectly complimented each other, but it was also so entertaining to know what each brides’ dress looked like while they were in the dark!

Rhiannon chose a gorgeous a-line Morilee gown with a detailed lace strap, delicate frosted beading, and a banded waist. We love that she kept her styling traditional by adding a gorgeous fingertip length lace veil! And we’re biased, but we also love how this dress showcases her cool collarbone tattoos.

Amy ended up choosing a gorgeous sheath-fit Maggie Sottero gown featuring an illusion keyhole back, soft stretch lace, and a soft v neckline. The beaded detailing on the back makes this a true stunner! We love how Amy’s feminine silhouette and light beading mirrored Rhiannons.

Happy anniversary, Rhiannon & Amy! Thank you so much for choosing Dress Gallery to be your bridal boutique. We were so blessed to know you both and love watching your family grow through the years. We are so proud to call you both #dgbrides! We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, & laughter.

Time to spice things up! We are so thankful when brides share their experience with their loved ones and, by doing so, other brides choose us as their bridal boutique. It’s particularly special when being a #dgbride runs in the family! Let us introduce you to Ashley & Madison, two #dgbrides who are also sisters. Madison married her soulmate, Drew, in July of 2020 and Ashley married her soulmate, Kash, in August 2020! Check out pictures from both of their weddings (R + B Photography for Madison, Alex Behrens Photography for Ashley!)

So Madison’s up first! Her wedding was originally scheduled for March of 2020, but they pushed the date back due to COVID-19. Despite the change of plans, Madison didn’t let that stop her perfect day! We styled her in a gorgeous A-line Morilee gown featuring a soft tulle skirt, heavily beaded bodice, and absolutely zero lace!

Madison wanted a classic, romantic look that fit her down-to-earth and bubbly personality. Her extra sparkly top created the “WOW!” impact we were looking for, while the soft tulle skirt allowed her to float throughout her reception. Combined with a perfect sparkly veil (it was her something borrowed!) and we think Madison did a great job keeping her look chic and timeless.

We were lucky enough to style her husband, Drew, and his crew, too! (I’m on fire right now.) To match their slate blue and greenery color palette, we kept Drew’s look airy and summery by using a light grey. Accented with pops of dark blue, the feminine color palette got a masculine feel!

Fast forward just a few weeks and it’s time for Ashley’s wedding! Ashley and Kash originally planned to get married in April, but also moved their wedding date due to COVID-19. Ashley wanted her wedding to be rustic and elegant – a very different vibe than Madison’s! She kept her wedding different by utilizing a different vibe and decor, but still a summery color palette.

Can we lovegush over this picture of Ashley and her daughter, Baylen?!

Ashley and her husband, Kash, are definitely more rustic than Madison and Drew – so we tried to style the menswear groups accordingly. Kash’s group featured dark navy suits with greenery and some western accents! We love that Kash stayed true to his personality and rocked an awesome Stetson!

We love that Ashley kept her wedding traditional by having a church ceremony first, followed by a blast of a reception. Her cathedral photos were among some of our favorites from her gallery!

Thank you so much, Ashley & Kash, Madison & Drew, for trusting Dress Gallery to style you for your big day. You are truly special brides to your consultant and will forever be one of our favorite families. We wish you all a lifetime of love, laughter, and happiness – something we know you’ll have in abundance. Cheers to the Biddles & the Meyers!

Smokeshow #dgbride Crystal and her husband, Roy, tied the knot at an intimate summer ceremony on August 1, 2020. We cannot handle how absolutely stunning they look in these photos from Brianna Huynh Photography! Take a peek at this super smoking couple below.

Crystal came and shopped with us in June with a wedding date of August 1. Her and Roy knew they wanted a whirlwind engagement ending in a fun, love-filled party to celebrate their marriage; the details would work themselves out. She found herself a group of vendors that were able to pull off her vision quickly with no problems at all!

When it came to her dress, she knew that she wanted a form-fitted, sexy gown with a hint of traditional romance. With a quick wear date, her consultant knew that she wanted to give Crystal the gorgeous gown of her dreams, but wanted to make sure there was more than enough time for alterations as well!

Crystal ended up in a freaking fabulous Maggie Sottero fitted gown featuring a plunging neckline, modern lace appliques, and beaded spagetti straps. The blush undertone looked gorgeous with her skin and fait hair! Combined with her well-structured gown showing off her silhouette and this gown was immediately the winner as soon as she put it on!

Her consultant made sure to pull “quick ship” dresses during the appointment – styles that designers often have in-stock to accomodate fast wear dates. By having her consultant pull those gowns, that eliminated looking through dresses that didn’t have the potential to come in time & possibly falling in love with something she couldn’t get.

We absolutely love how Crystal styled her gown, Tuscany Lynette, with minimal extras; she let her silhouette do all the talking! By keeping her accessories & hair natural, Crystal looked entirely effortless on her wedding day. We loved these sweet, intimate pictures of her and her mother as they were getting ready!

Thank you so much, Crystal, for trusting us to style you on your wedding day. We loved being able to style you & were so happy to accept the challenge of a quick engagement. We wish you & Roy the absolute best in your life together; here’s to many years of laughter and love!

It’s our favorite time of the year, y’all. We’re not even talking about spooky season (although it is the collective favorite of the DG babes, tied with Christmas) – we’re talking about new dress arrival season. We’re placing orders for our 2021 collections and they’re starting to arrive! So far, we’ve gotten a handful of dresses from a variety of designers, so we figured we’d do a multi-designer wrap up of the new arrivals this past month! Let us know which is your absolute favorite in the comments.

Iris by Rebecca Ingram

Uh, okay, we see you Iris. We see you over there, looking effortlessly romantic and chic with lace applique sleeves, peek-a-boo chantilly lace throughout the soft a-line skirt, and a beautifully modest v-neck and back. We love that they styled this gown with a flower crown because this is truly the ultimate garden fairy dress! The semi-sheer bodice adds a touch of modern sexiness to this ethereal gown. If you’re wanting something soft, feminine, and flowy, Iris should definitely be on your short list!

9754 by Allure Bridals

Allure Bridals created the perfect combination of sexy, stylish, and timeless when they created style 9754. This gorgeous sheath silhouette is complimented by the thick strap, modified Queen Anne neckline, and perfectly-placed lace appliques guaranteed to highlight your figure. Combined with a dramatic train and this is a gown destined to blow your guests away! Available in both ivory and champagne, let’s be honest – you’d be a stunner in either one.

3353 by Allure Bridals

Allure definitely hit it out of the park when they created style 3353. This illusion top, chiffon skirt a-line gown is one of the softest, most whimsical silhouettes we’ve seen so far this season. The beautiful illusion top allows you to look painted with lace appliques while still ensuring a comfortable, modest fit. Detailed with fabric buttons up the spine and clear sequins throughout, this dress is an understated stunner just waiting for a mountain elopement!

Darby by Rebecca Ingram

Forget lookin’ like a snack – in Darby, you’re gonna look like the whole meal. This sexy sheath crepe dress is a perfect curve-hugger, guaranteed to make your body the focal point. A trendy, modified sweetheart neckline keeps your dress style unique and cool while the frosted lace appliques add a touch of romance. Add in delicate spaghetti straps and this gown is the ultimate stunner for the down-to-earth, super chill bride.

9774 by Allure Bridals

We’re just waiting for the elegant, black-tie affair of a bride’s dream to rock this gorgeous fitted Mikado gown by Allure. Beaded lace appliques and luxuriously crisp fabric keeps this gown chic, formal, but most of all, timeless. The off-the-shoulder neckline allows you to show off your shoulders; the neckline has just a hint of sexy to it. Whatever your setting, we recommend having a gorgeous aisle so you can show off this fabulous train in all its’ true glory!

Amelia by Heirloom Couture

Rounding up our August new arrivals in Amelia, hand made by our very own atelier Katie Jones! We’ve already highlighted Amelia in her own post, but we’re so excited to share that we officially have TWO Heirloom Couture brides with this babe. How lucky are those brides to have such a custom made gown?! Katie is taking two more orders for Amelia before moving on to her next custom creation, so if you’d like to be an Heirloom Couture bride, RUN TO US SISTER FRIEND!

Fallen in love yet? We totally understand, we have to. Let us know which new arrival is your favorite in the comments or on Facebook!

Despite COVID-19, #dgbride Morgan and her soulmate Dustin married in a small, intimate ceremony on May 9, 2020 at St. Mark’s Evangelist Catholic Church. They plan on celebrating with a large group of friends and family later in the fall, but wanted to honor their original wedding date and focus on the most important part: their vow to each other! Check out these gorgeous images courtesy of their photographer, Christine Mathews Photography!

Florals by Carie Youngers

When it came to planning her dream wedding, Morgan used her intuition to make her vision come true. She utilized Pinterest and expert friends, but steered away from searching specifically for wedding items. “I searched for things like ‘color scheme’ or ‘spring tablescapes’ to find what I was looking for,” Morgan said.

Her classic, chic springtime wedding featured light colors such as dusty blue, pale yellow, and accents of peach – perfect for an early May wedding. Complimented by gorgeous natural spring light, this was definitely the ultimate romantic wedding!

Florals by Carie Youngers

We love Morgan because of her warm and welcoming attitude – and she was truly the best bride to navigate throwing a wedding due to COVID-19. Less than a week before her wedding date, more gathering limits were placed, which left friends and family scrambling to re-create the wedding with less help from vendors. All the changes made everyone all-hands-on-deck, which ultimately made the 50 person ceremony much more special! Followed by an intimate reception at a closed bar & grill, Morgan’s found the silver lining in having a wedding in the time of Coronavirus.

“I wanted our wedding to be as authentically us as possible, which actually happened because of Corona,” she said. “Our wedding was not what we expected at all, but it was just as perfect as I could have ever wished it. P.S. – small ceremonies are the best! As I walked down the aisle, I saw the face of every single person who was present and that was so special!”

Morgan’s classic and chic Essense of Australia ball gown was the perfect mixture of fun and romantic for her springtime wedding. The plunging neckline and banded waist accentuate her silhouette, while the full Mikado skirt and lace appliques keep the dress playful, whimsical, and gorgeous. Add a fabric button detail down the train for just a hint of romance and this dress was truly meant for Morgan!

“Courtney at Dress Gallery made my dress dreams come true and she works MAGIC. I knew I wanted an A-line dress, but other than that, I was clueless,” Morgan said. “As Courtney and I chatted about my dream wedding, she figured out exactly what I wanted!”

We are so thankful Dress Gallery was the only bridal boutique Morgan visited. When she came back for her second appointment and re-tried on this gown, she knew it was the one! We cannot agree more. Her beauty truly radiated in this gown!

One of our favorite things about Morgan is how contagious her attitude is. Throughout her entire wedding gallery, we had a huge smile on our face simply because Morgan was beaming. You could tell her & Dustin were having the time of their lives on their simplistic wedding day. Check out some of our favorite images of Morgan looking like the happiest, most radiant goddess:

Morgan & Dustin – thank you so much for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We are so thankful for your perseverance and positive attitude during this tumultuous time. Thank you for allowing us to play a small part in your joyful day. We wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness!

One of our favorite designers we carry is Morilee by Madeline Garner and now, with their Fall 2020 collection, they’re proving why. We truly believe that Morilee is one of the best bang-for-your-buck designers. She packs a punch in terms of design features, quality construction, beading, and more, all for a really affordable price. Some of these brand new gowns are guaranteed to become best sellers for us – take a peek at some of the newest designs!

Autumn (5286) from Morilee by Madeline Garner

First up on our top 10 list is Autumn, a gorgeous flowy a-line gown featuring a slight plunging v neck line, a soft tulle skirt, delicately beaded spaghetti straps, and lace appliques throughout the bodice and train. We can imagine this dress roaming through the countryside, the skirt catching in the wind!

Andra (2180) from Morilee by Madeline Garner

If you’re the type of bride who wants to show off her hips on the big day, look no further than Andra, a stunning fit-and-flare gown with sheer bodice, illusion tank straps, and multi-layered lace. The extended train features a gorgeous hem lace and the whole gown is accented with frosted beading and clear sequining. We think this gown would look gorgeous down a church aisle or upscale art museum wedding!

Amelia (5880) from Morilee by Madeline Garner

If you’re a bride dreaming of a winter wedding, or a colder destination, the Amelia gown should be a surefire contender. This soft tulle gown features draped tulle in a classic v neckline and three-quarter sleeves, perfect for any bride who loves a clean, chic look. A small beaded waistband accents just enough to sparkle slightly and lets you be the most stunning feature of the gown.

April (6935) from Morilee by Madeline Garner

Adorned with organic lace spaghetti straps and a soft, modest v neck, April is the ultimate garden party gown. The soft a-line tulle overlays Chantilly lace, creating visual dimension and adding a touch of vintage to the gown. Frosted embroidery and clear sequining allow you to sparkle without feeling overwhelming and the soft, flowy skirt is perfect for dancing the night away beneath the stars.

Alice (2191) from Morilee by Madeline Garner

In love with the look of illusion sleeves? Look no further than Alice, a gorgeously soft a-line gown featuring a sophisticated plunging neckline and trickling lace throughout the waistline. Accented with frosted embroidery throughout the gown, this stunner even comes with a detachable underskirt for extra drama!

Ariana (2181) from Morilee by Madeline Garner

If soft, romantic bohemian is your vibe, you need to try on Ariana. Probably our absolute favorite of the newest arrivals (if, ya know, we picked favorites), we think this flowy a-line is one of the best dresses of the year. The delicate spaghetti straps are accented by the modest v neckline, gorgeously floral lace appliques, and a sequined tulle underskirt, allowing you to sparkle with every step you take. Combined with the feminine draping of the tulle throughout the bodice and you’re guaranteed to be a showstopper in Ariana!

Agatha (2173) from Morilee by Madeline Garner

Let’s say you’re wanting a little more volume and drama in your skirt – we hear you, girl, and we give you Agatha. An ultra-romantic A-line gown featuring more volume in the skirt, this dress also has frosted embroidery and perfectly placed lace appliques throughout. Combined with a sexy and soft illusion cap sleeve top and slight plunging neckline, the bodice of this dress has a hint of sexy while the overall vibe stays fresh, modern, and feminine.

Serenity (1022) from Morilee by Madeline Garner

Wanting to create the ultimate dramatic dress change between your ceremony and reception? Serenity should be at the top of your list. A total stunner with the amount of beading, sequining, and embroidered lace, this gown features a dramatic, removable overskirt that reveals a fitted down beneath. Add in a timeless sweetheart neckline and this will be the dress people talk about for years.

Adelaide (2171) from Morilee by Madeline Garner

A sister style to many of the dresses above, Adelaide is for a bride looking for statement lace and a soft, plunging neckline. This extra floral, extra leafy lace patterning throughout creates the ultimate natural vibes, highlighted by frosted embroidery and clear sequining. 3-D florals adorn the bodice and skirt, creating visual dimension and adding a touch of whimsy to your big day.

Have we convinced you to become a Morilee bride yet? Save your favorites and show us at your appointment!

Okay, fam, real talk for a second: we love being Kansans. There’s a certain amount of pride that comes with being from the Midwest. Our way of life here may be different than other parts of the country, but we love the rolling hills, the open prairies, the wind through the wheat. There’s something magical about a prairie wedding. We wanted to capture that wild, down-to-earth spirit in a styled shoot with our favorite girl, Shelby Laine. But what gowns to feature? Enter Avery, our intern-turned-San-Diego-transplant. Avery interned with us in summer 2017 and later became the social media manager at Kenneth Winston. We combined forces with Clover Cliff Ranch in the Flint Hills to create this gorgeous styled shoot featuring all K-Dub dresses!

We totally love the truly carefree, Midwestern vibe of this styled shoot. We are extra thankful for Clover Cliff Ranch, a gorgeous bed-and-breakfast located in the heart of the Flint Hills. This venue could not have been more perfect for our bold and glamorous prairie feel. Plus, they are the nicest people. We love when vendors turn into great networking friends! If you’re looking for a gorgeous wedding venue, or even just a quick little staycation, check out Clover Cliff!

Kenneth Winston is truly one of the best designers when it comes to creating romatic, timeless gowns with modern sophistication. Not only are they able to accommodate customizations, which allows each bride to truly perfect their wedding look, but they also are family owned -and-operated. Brothers Kenneth and Winston revitalized the brand their parents created and helped breathe new life into an already established wedding collection. We’ve been floored by all their new arrivals!

Whether you’re wanting something bold & adventurous or timeless & classic, Kenneth Winston’s collection is a great place to start. Their design styles compliment all body types and they love a good subtle detail. Some of our favorites include layers of sequining in the skirt of the dress and removable trains for extra drama! Their soft and feminine lace patterns are perfect for any wedding occasion and we love their attention to detail.

Absolutely stunning #dgbride Ashton married her soulmate, Drew, on October 19th, 2019 on their family’s land in Kingman, Kansas. Their low-key gorgeous country wedding featured a stunning landscape wheat background with contrasting pops of bright red to match. Their entire day was airy, romantic, and straight up stunning. Rebecca Rose Photography based in Wichita did their photography and it’s to die for!

Ashton wanted to keep her wedding country but classic, with pops of deep reds and stark ivory against the amber waves of wheat on their family land. This was the perfect backdrop for their love – warm, airy, and full of family members. They kept their unique and lighthearted, a true mirror to this fun-loving couple’s personality!

The couple wanted to keep their wedding romantic but fun. “Nothing too ‘fancy’,” Ashton said. She planned the wedding with the help of her husband, mother, and other loved ones. By crowd sourcing ideas and inspiration from other brides, she was able to create her own unique, beautiful day special to her and Drew. “I’d live the day over and over if I could.”

When it came to picking her gorgeous Maggie Sottero gown, Ashton was looking for something that would fit the vibe of her country wedding, but also make her feel like a bride.

“I love my dress so much,” she said. “It was form-fitted and made me feel so beautiful. It showed the perfect amount of skin, but was still tasteful. The lace fit the country vibe of our wedding and the sparkle detail made it “frilly.” I chose this dress because it’s the only one that made me tear up when I tried it on!” she said.

Ashton was so confident in her dress and Dress Gallery that we were the only boutique she visited! She tried about 5 or 6 dresses on here with Courtney before finding this pale blush stunner.

(Really quickly, we need to insert how freaking cool it is that Ashton drove up to her ceremony in a vintage yellow truck? It was a WOW moment, yet so down-to-earth!)

Ashton has some seriously chill advice for future brides. “Have a plan, but don’t expect everything to work out. There are one or two things you will have to adjust and your wedding will still be perfect,” she said.

Another great advice Ashton has is to ask for help! “Don’t be afraid to be reach out to those friends/family who offered,” she said. She surrounded herself with some fabulous loved ones, including her bridesmaids and mother, who helped style!

The bridesmaids wore a combination of designers in a popping, bright red color while both mothers wore our Adrianna Papell evening gowns. We are so thankful Ashton trusted us to style the important women in her life.

Another perfect part of Ashton and Drew’s wedding was how much their loved ones pitched in for their wedding. They made all the food for their taco bar themselves; her mother-in-law and grandmother-in-law made all the floral arrangements; and her friend Jennifer Riehl created all the cakes and cupcakes! She even made a gluten-free option available.

But the one vendor Ashton raved about was the bed and breakfast her wedding party got ready in! Baker’s Quarter Bed & Breakfast in Kingman had fresh ready for all the family first thing in the morning. All the food was made in-house and from scratch.

“It was such a cute and homey place to stay!” she said.

Thank you, Ashton, for being a #dgbride. We are so thankful for you and your sweet loved ones choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We will be raving over your gorgeous photos for years to come!
