To celebrate the upcoming new year, we decided to highlight one of our newest #dgcouples! Hailey and Andrew got married in a super intimate mountaintop elopement in Rocky Mountain National Park, followed by a gorgeous church ceremony in Wichita. Their adventurous spirit was perfectly captured by their photographer, Nomadicfitlust Photography, who specializes in Colorado destination weddings. We LOVED helping this totally sweet, compassionate couple and you are going to fall in LOVE with them both once you see these joyous photos. We wanted to shout it from the mountaintops – congratulations, Hailey and Andrew!

Call us biased, but is there a more romantic place to elope?! We love the juxtaposition between the Wittman’s formal attire and the rugged, natural beauty of the Rockies. This location is next to gorgeous Lake Isabelle and it was certainly a hike to get to this spot! You can check out Andrew and Hailey look EXTRA cute in their hiking gear, complete with ponchos, as they trekked up to their ceremony area. What a fun way to make memories with your spouse on wedding day!

When it came to her wedding dress, Hailey knew she wanted a gown that was comfortable enough to hike in, while also being formal enough to be worn during their Wichita church ceremony as well. Modesty was important to Hailey and she also knew she’d be in a chilly area, so sleeves were a definite must for her as well. Her consultant, Marisa, pulled the PERFECT Sottero and Midgley gown for her – Arleigh, a stunning long-sleeved, sheath gown featuring delicate beading and illusion shoulder cut outs. Hailey built up the back of the dress with additional lace for more coverage and the look is totally breathtaking for her mountainside ceremony!

Andrew came in wanting a fashion-forward suit that totally fit the Earth tone color palette for their wedding day. His sand colored suit was purchased from our menswear department and was tailored at our preferred seamstress. We love his slim fit cut that showcased his silhouette; we had to make sure he looked as good as Hailey! This light suit was a great combination of formal, yet down-to-Earth to fit the vibe of their wedding day.

As Christians, it was important for Hailey and Andrew to show their devotion not only to God, but to each other. We’ve seen multiple couples honor this tradition during their ceremonies, but we love that Hailey and Andrew were able to serve each other with beautiful Lake Isabelle as their water. It created not only gorgeous photos, but a truly intimate moment that resonated with everyone present. This was a beautiful way for them to honor their love for each other and God going forward in their marriage.

Congratulations, Hailey and Andrew! We are SO THANKFUL you trusted Dress Gallery to style you for your wedding day. We loved getting to know you both and are so lucky we were able to be a small part of your big day. We wish you both a lifetime of love, laughter, and happiness. Cheers to the Wittmans!

Alright, guys, we are seriously dying over the dreamiest wedding from our next #dgbride! Katie married her soulmate, Grey, in an absolutely timeless Southern ceremony, surrounded by chic white columns, beautifully manicured gardens, and the preppiest pops of pastel colors. Her wedding photographer, Tolman Media, captured her crisp, airy wedding perfectly. You’re going to LOVE her fashion-forward, yet totally classic gown. Get ready to fall in love below!

Katie’s super classic gown was a private label dress from one of our designers, meaning Katie is one of the only brides in the country with this gown! We helped coordinate with the designer to create a timeless, yet totally chic gown featuring a dramatic bridal bow. We love that Katie kept the bridal bow and that it was a selling point of the dress for her! It totally fit the soft, feminine Southern vibe of her wedding. Add in her structured and creamy Mikado satin gown and you truly have one of our favorite wedding looks.

Katie’s dress featured a gorgeously architectural illusion back along with romantic buttons all the way through the train. Her full skirt created the perfect silhouette and her plunging neckline but modest tank straps was the perfect sexy-yet-sophisticated neckline. We love that Katie kept her bridal look totally traditional with a gorgeous updo and soft tulle cathedral veil. Her overall look is simplistic and modern, yet perfectly feminine for her Southern garden wedding.

Congratulations, Katie and Grey! Katie, we can’t thank you enough for trusting Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. It means the world to us that you shopped locally to your family and including us in such a gorgeous day. We had a GREAT time getting to know you and finding your perfect private label gown. We wish you and Grey a lifetime of love, happiness, and LOTS of dramatic bows. Cheers to the Bakers!

Okay, guys, we’re throwing it back to the crazy year of 2020 and featuring a favorite #dgcouple, Brooke & Adam! They got married on Dec, 26, 2020 – meaning they are about to celebrate their first anniversary. We’ve been saving these photos for Christmastime because they give us ALL the feels. Thanks to Shelby Laine Photography for all of these images; we are heels over head!

We cannot get over the gorgeous Cathedral Brooke & Adam chose to host their ceremony. The neutral backdrop was perfect for their vibrant pops of crimson and emerald, which fit perfectly with their Christmas wedding. Shelby was so fab capturing the unique architecture of the building, making their wedding photos truly stunning!

Brooke wanted to keep her look clean, chic, and timeless, which fit perfectly with her wedding vision. Her crisp ivory dress made her look like an ethereal snow queen, complete with dramatic open back and flowy a-line skirt. Her high neckline kept the dress modern and we love how she paired it with a simple, edged veil!

Adam complimented Brooke perfectly with a light grey suit, accented with an emerald tie to pull in the wedding colors. We love how he kept the look neutral and bright, allowing for the color palette to really pop. The fern boutonniere is a perfect accent! He kept his entire bridal party looking sophisticated and classic by sticking to the same look for everyone.

For her bridesmaids’ dresses, Brooke chose a stunning deep emerald green. Brooke also kept her bridal party look classic by choosing the same dress for each girl, but added a pop of cute and casual (and functional!) white shawls for their shoulders. This small addition makes the perfect bridesmaids gift, but also is a functional gift for the chilly weather!

Congratulations to you, Adam & Brooke, and we wish you both a very happy anniversary. We wish you many more years of laughter, love, and happiness! Cheers to you the Kierseys!

Holy goodness, y’all, get ready to swoon over these gorgeous photos of our next #dgbride, Ashlen! She married her soulmate, Austin, a super classic black-and-white ceremony in July 2021. We love how moody yet intimate all of these shots are courtesy of wedding photographer phenom, Staci Brucks. You are gonna wanna save ALL of these photos to your Pinterest for inspiration because this wedding is a DREAM. Get ready to fall in love!

Ashlen chose an absolutely stunning crepe Maggie Sottero gown named “Fernanda” that we absolutely adore. With no embellishments save for fabric buttons down the entire skirt + train length, Ashlen’s silhouette is the true star of this gown. This all ivory gown perfectly fit her classic black-and-white vibe of the wedding, a gorgeous combination of edgy formal that only was heightened by a little bit of stormy skies + rain!

For real, how dreamy are these umbrella photos?! These are a perfect example of not letting the weather ruin your day, but instead embracing everything that your wedding day gives you and allowing it to let your photographer get creative. These rainy day shots are cute and unique, but also intimate and a little steamy with the Lucite umbrella! The industrial feel totally fits with Ashlen + Austin’s vibe while also giving them a safe space from the rain to cuddle up together for gorgeous photos!

Now we gotta show off our girl Ashlen, though. Her dress is a simplistic stunner, totally plain minus those classic fabric buttons throughout the bodice and train. Her tank straps are ultra supportive and classic, while her sheath fit totally highlights her body while still allowing her to dance the night away. Accented with two seams through the bodice and down the thighs, this feature is made to follow the natural curves of your body and let the dress fall perfectly. Fernanda features a swooping, wide train, perfect for dramatic shots and creating extra dimension in photos. Basically, Ashlen looks 10 feet tall in this gown by letting her body do ALL the talking!

Congratulations, Ashlen and Austin! We are so thankful that Ashlen trusted us to style her for such an important day. You truly chose a gorgeous gown and we think Fernanda was just waiting here for you! Your classic wedding look is a vibe we will reference and look back on in awe for years to come. Thank you for letting us be a small part of your big day. We wish you a lifetime of love and laughter. Cheers to the Riggs!

Okay, guys, we can’t wait to show off our next #dgbride! Introducing Molly, who married her soulmate Omar in a gorgeous May 2021 ceremony at the Kansas Aviation Museum. She chose an absolutely stunning Maggie Sottero gown featuring long sleeves and Lyndi Mishe, her photographer, captured their romantic day so beautifully! Get ready to fall in love with this intimate ceremony and be inspired by this springtime color palette!

Molly’s dress is Hailey Lynette by Maggie Sottero, a recently discontinued stunner that we truly believed was made for her! Her textured underlay creates dimension while the bold appliques keep her look timeless, yet modern. The nude underlay creates a lot of color definition and allows her lace to truly pop! Soft, subtle sparkle throughout the dress allowed Molly to shimmer with every step.

We love that Molly kept her look soft and feminine with loose bridal curls, fresh greenery in her hair, and super organic and bright wedding florals. Her modest look was still ultra sophisticated and sexy by allowing her silhouette to shine through versus any one body part. This gown truly spoke to Molly mature soul! We love the vintage touch of the filligree lace and baby bell sleeve, the perfect little accent to make this dress truly unique.

We love any couple who truly tries to incorporate their personality into their big day and the Francos were no different! They featured small pops of Star Wars throughout their wedding, which we couldn’t get enough of. The small touches of nerdiness are what made the day feel totally specific to them – plus, who else has a Star Wars cake at their wedding?!

Thank you so much, Molly, for trusting Dress Gallery to be your bridal boutique. When we ordered the LAST Hailey Lynette that Maggie Sottero had in stock, we must have known it was going to be waiting for you! Your day was truly special and we are glad to have played a small part of it. We wish you + Omar a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter – and space adventures! (: Cheers to the Francos!

It’s time to fall heels over head with some of our Fall 2021 dresses! This time, we’re featuring Rebecca Ingram, a collection from designer Maggie Sottero, full of whimsy, romance, and timeless pieces. We had such a hard time narrowing down to just a few favorites to buy for the store, but here are some of the gorgeous dresses that recently arrived for all our brides!

Tessa is a gorgeous long sleeve a-line gown featuring a ruffle skirt, horsehair hem, v neckline, and open back. The soft sparkle throughout the bodice continues and trickles down through the waistline, ending in an airy and romantic skirt. The modest v neckline is a great way to highlight cleavage while also staying modest and timeless!

Jenessa is a beautifully boho gown featuring a soft tulle a-line skirt, ruched tulle bodice with peek-a-boo lace, a trickling lace waistline, and secret sparkle throughout. The airy skirt of this gown is perfect for any natural backdrop, whether it’s the beach, mountains, or garden party. Her plunging neckline keeps the look just a little bit sexy while the tank straps allow for serious support. We love how effortless this look is! Pair with fresh florals in your hair & you’d be all set.

Alda is a fitted crepe gown featuring the most luxurious fabric, sheer lace bodice with plunging neckline, and delicately petite spaghetti straps. We love the romantic detail of crepe buttons down the length of the train. The trickling over the waistline keeps the attention on your silhouette and the low, open back gives the dress an extra sexy feel. Dress up this babe with some seriously sparkly jewelry to match the subtle sparkle throughout and you have a super classic gown!

Next up is Heather, an absolutely stunning chiffon a-line gown featuring bold off-the-shoulder sleeves! This unique lace applique bodice features subtle sparkle while the airy chiffon skirt features button detailing down the train. We’re just waiting to see the first photos of a bride running barefoot into the sunset with this gown!

Fantasia is just as dreamy and fantastical as the movie it is named after. This dress is the perfect combination of dresses for an indecisive bride; featuring a fitted, lacy underlayer and a whimsically flowy tulle skirt, this gives you a sexy silhoutte with the flow of an a-line dress. Add in the petite spaghetti strap sleeves, soft plunging neckline, and sheer bodice and this dress gives us the ultimate garden fairy vibes. You can dress her up with detachable flutter sleeves (sold separately) if you want to jazz up your look!

Last but not least, Hesper is a true stunner. Featuring absolutely gorgeously patterned glitter tulle, this gown features NO LACE – and we’re not even missing it! The banded waist truly highlights your silhouette while the open back keeps the dress sexy and down-to-earth. Add in the hidden slit and plunging neckline and this is the boho beach dress of our dreams! We can only imagine the sparkle against the backdrop of glittering water.

Which Rebecca Ingram is your favorite?! Can’t wait to try these babes on?! Head into DG and ask your consultant at your appointment!

 

Okay, y’all, get ready to lose your minds over one of the coolest #dgcouples ever – Kinzie & Jared! Their ultra cool, super fun wedding was held at Tanganyika Wildlife Park in Goddard, KS in spring 2021. Their love and laughter shines through every photo captured by Lyndi Mishe Photography, one of newest favorites in the Kansas wedding photo scene. We love how she captured the spirit of this couple; they truly are the most fun and these photos show it!

When it came to her dress, Kinzie wanted something sexy, comfortable, and super cool. Everyone was super stoked when she found her Maggie Sottero gown – it was the perfect combination of all her wants! The flowy chiffon skirt made priority a comfort while also allowing her to have some seriously cool photos (wait and see!) We love her heavily beaded bodice, keeping her look formal and bride, while the silhouette made the vibe more down-to-earth. Dainty spaghetti straps highlighted her shoulders and collar bones and a soft v neckline kept the whole thing sexy, yet sophisticated!

When it came to Jared and his guys, Kinzie wanted to keep the look classic yet cool. They landed on our trim fit steel grey suit, which perfectly suited their springtime day! Dark enough to feel formal, while the grey kept the day feeling fun. Champagne accents kept everything neutral, matching the natural greenery they chose for their florals. This was a perfectly balanced group of classic yet modern – and they look pretty good, if we do say so ourselves!

Can we also talk about how cool it is to be able to access unique wildlife like this, especially for your wedding day? We love how Kinzie + Jared showcased their personality not only in style, but clearly in venue choice. They have some truly special memories that will last them for years to come because c’mon…who gets kissed by a giraffe on their wedding day?! (Kinzie did!)

Like, seriously – how cute are these photos?! You can literally feel Kinzie’s free spirit and Jared’s happiness radiating from your screen. It was so hard to narrow down photos we wanted to use because every moment was filled with the type of joy we wish for every bride and groom. Kinzie is the perfect example of not taking yourself too seriously on your wedding day; let you hair down, kick off your shoes, and just have fun!

Cheers to the Kirklands! Thank you so much, Jared and Kinzie, for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We loved styling you and helping you create the ultimate looks for your perfect day. We are thankful to have played a small part of your big day. We wish you both a lifetime of love, laughter, and happiness – something we think you’ll have in abundance. Congratulations, Kinzie + Jared!

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 for another fabulous #dgbride! Everyone, meet Halie, an absolute stunner of a bride who married her soulmate, Daqota, in a gorgeous autumnal ceremony. She chose one of our favorite Maggie Sottero gowns of all time and we absolutely loved her moody yet romantic wedding day. Her gorgeous photos are courtesy of The Brightness Project, a husband and wife team in Nathan and Patience that we are massive fans of. Take a peek at their jaw-dropping wedding below!

Halie chose a stunner of a gown in her Maggie Sottero dress, named “Della,” which features a beaded spaghetti strap v neckline with accompanying off-the-shoulder straps. Her bold lace appliques are throughout the dress, peeking through the skirt, and are a beautiful contrast to the soft blush undertone. Add in her delicate crystal beading to let her shimmer with every step and you have the definition of soft and ethereal.

We also love Halie’s super sexy fitted silhouette! This comfortable fit-and-flare gown is made to show off her body, while also allowing her movement to dance the night away. Her illusion back for extra drama + long train is perfect for making a true “WOW” moment during her wedding day! We love how she styled her look with soft pearl studs and a dramatic cathedral veil – simplistic yet romantic!

How cool is her bridal party of all black?! We love the classic yet modern look of an all-black bridal party. Her dress truly POPS in photos and it also creates some great visuals with her floral colors! Add in her moody golden hour lighting and we are swooning over these photos!

Congratulations, Halie and Daqota, on your marriage! We loved working with you and being a small part of your special day. We hope you felt as FREAKING GOREGEOUS as you look, Halie! We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter. Cheers to you both!
