In the midst of these wintertime blues, we figured now would be a good time to showcase one of our absolute favorite styled shoots. Stephanie Tran put together a GORGEOUS bohemian beauty this past summer and it’s truly a crime we’ve waited this long to showcase the photos – but we knew these sunny, dreamy babes would be perfect to break out during the dreary darker months. We love everything from the spicy strapless fitted Morilee gown and custom Chic Nostalgia arm cuffs we styled to the stylish circle hat + ivory bootie combo and the effortlessly sexy appeal of the whole shoot. Get ready to fall in love and decide to run away with your lover after seeing these shots!

For this shoot, we knew we wanted something fun, flirty, and dramatic to match the epic backdrop of Monument Rocks. Stephanie wanted a dusty color palette, so we knew a nude undertone would match the vibe best. We landed on Serena, (style 2143), from Morilee, a STUNNING strapless gown featuring bohemian and floral lace, subtle sparkle, and a massive train. Since this was a whimsical, wild, elopement-styled shoot, we tossed tradition to the wind and opted for a cool bohemian arm cuff as her spicy accessory, knowing that a veil or hairpiece wouldn’t work with the circle hat. All in all, this is a GREAT way to feel down-to-earth and effortlessly cool while still choosing a traditional bridal gown!

We absolutely loved being a part of this styled shoot! Stephanie had a super cool, unique vision and watching it come to life was one of our favorite moments this year. Plus, she knocked it out of the park SO MUCH that Morilee, the bridal designer, featured the photos on their own bridal blog! Talk about a shout out, right?! Stephanie, thanks for including us in your vision – sign us for first for your next one, please!!!

We are bouncing up and down in anticipation of y’all meeting our newest, cutest #dgbride, Diamond! Diamond married her soulmate, Terrell, in a stunningly airy ceremony, full of bright light, crisp ivory, and the most organic natural greenery. This down-to-Earth wedding vibe was perfectly captured by one of our favorite local photographers, Erin King, who has a knack for capturing couples at their most vulnerable and romantic. Get ready to fall in love with Erin’s work and Diamond’s look in these photos below!

When it came to her wedding day look, Diamond was all about comfort meets style. She knew she wanted a dress that would allow her to flow comfortably throughout her day while still creating the “WOW” impact moment all brides were wanting. We think she chose perfectly in this super flowy, ultra cool Morilee A-line gown featuring lace spaghetti straps and a sheer bodice. Diamond’s dress was the perfect combination of sexy, yet sophisticated, and we love how she kept her look totally natural – just like her accents!

Diamond’s effortlessly cool gown featuring a slightly plunging v neckline, chic tulle skirt, secret beading, and the most stunning train. We love how she paired her look with a traditional fingertip length lace veil to add a pop of traditional to her modern vibe. We can’t claim credit for Terrell’s great look, but have some super stylish dark grey options similar if that’s what your groom is wanting!

Cheers to you both, Diamond and Terrell! We are so thankful you trusted Dress Gallery as such an important piece of your big day. We loved getting to know you and are so glad you’re a DG bride. We wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness! Cheers to you!

Alright, y’all, this next #dgbride is literally the ONLY BRIDE in this gown and we have been DYING to show her off! Our fabulous bride, Jennifer, married her soulmate Andrew in a gorgeously traditional Christian Orthodox ceremony followed by a large, extravagant party! You’re going to absolutely die over her photos courtesy of Skylar Livingston, especially when you see her freakin’ DRAMATIC Morilee gown. Get ready to fall in love with this wedding just as much as we did!

Jennifer chose an absolutely STUNNING fitted Morilee gown featuring a dramatic overskirt. We love that this additional detail gave Jennifer the power to complete change her look mid-day. Her A-line look was perfect for the cathedral and photos, but the stretchy, fitted dress underneath allowed her dance the night away with her loved ones. The dress features almost entirely sequins, allowing Jennifer to shimmer with every step, but also totally customize her metal color!

We love the Jennifer kept her look glamorous and fashion forward by wearing a gorgeous bridal tiara and beaded cathedral length veil. If you’re getting married in one of the most historic cathedrals in town, you have to show out! Her classic strapless neckline was perfect for her summertime wedding, showcasing her petite shoulders, while still staying modest and sophisticated for her traditional ceremony. Add in her beautiful bridal ivory color palette and you have the ULTIMATE classic yet modern bride!

How stunning are these photos from Skylar Livingston? We love how the airy and bright editing totally matched Jennifer’s classic style. Plus, we love any opportunity to highlight gorgeous Wichita backdrops! We wish we could take credit for Andrew’s look, but that was all the bride! His Jacquard printed ivory look complimented Jennifer perfectly while still allowing him an opportunity to shine. We love a fashionable groom!

Congratulations, Jennifer and Andrew! We cannot thank you enough, Jennifer, for trusting us to style you for such an important day. We loved getting to know you, your super fun family, and are so thankful you trusted your unique wedding vision to rock this gorgeously glam dress. We still can’t believe you’re our only bride in this babe! We wish you and Andrew a lifetime of love and happiness. Cheers to the Wakims!

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!

Okay, fam – time to show off our latest creative collaboration with K + P Photography! They reached out to us about doing a styled shoot focusing on organic, natural backdrops and breezy, easy-going vibes. We absolutely love this bohemian backyard styled shoot that’s the perfect combination of local elopement and intimate ceremony. Add in the colorful, wild florals and the macramé accents and this shoot is to DIE for! We’re biased, but we totally love this eclectic-meets-cool styling for your big day. Let us know your favorite part of this shoot on Facebook!

Can we PLEASE talk about how cool this boho elopement dress is? Featuring a plunging neckline, delicate sheet lace, a stretch liner, and not a lick of beading throughout – this is definitely for the girl who wants to let her body be the stunner. We paired this cool dress with a super unique fringe capelet to add extra pizazz and spice! If you’re not a traditional cape girl, you can change up your look by doing a cape, off-the-shoulder sleeves, a bow, and more! Talk to your consultant about different ways to customize your look (:

We kept the menswear look cool and casual, fitting with the down-to-earth vibe of the wedding. We went with our Casual Groom package, which includes everything your guys will need except for the jacket! So if you’re looking for a low key yet super stylish look for your groom, come and see us! We love the unique Mulberry color of his pants, but we pulled the dusty color palette in with champagne suspenders and a gorgeous dusty rose velvet bowtie!

This look is so fun and sexy! This dreamy Morilee gown is perfect for any bride who wants the spotlight to truly be on them during their wedding day. Plus, we cannot get over how freaking cool these florals are from Free State Flora! This dusty and petite wildflower bouquet fits the totally ethereal and whimsical vibe perfectly. Definitely call Emily for your floral needs!

What was your favorite part of this styled shoot?! Let us know on Facebook!

 

We cannot wait to lovegush over our next #dgbride, Becca! Becca married her soulmate, Isaac, is an intimate church ceremony surrounded by only the closest of loved ones. They totally changed their wedding day vision to accommodate COVID-19 and their newborn baby. Instead, their gorgeously sunny winter wedding was full of love, laughter, and tons of natural light! Check out these fabulous photos, courtesy of Lyndi Mishe Photography; she definitely needs to be on your photographer shortlist!

We absolutely loved Becca’s flowy a-line gown. This gorgeous Morilee dress featured a soft v-neckline, long illusion sleeves, beaded lace appliques throughout the bodice, and a soft tulle skirt made for movement! This dress was perfect for her down-to-earth ceremony, allowing her to sparkle while also being comfortable on her wedding day. Add in her bold red lip and we think she styled this gown perfectly!

How cute does Becca look getting ready in her gown with her mom?! Getting ready photos can be some of the most special of the entire day; it’s the calm moments before the crazy that truly allow you to have an intimate look at your special day. These photos of a loved one helping you into your gown can become some of the most prized photos of the day! We love how happy and glowing both Becca and her mom look. Lyndi did a fabulous job capturing this sweet moment!

 

While we can’t take credit for Isaac’s look, we love the pop of burgundy Becca chose for their looks! This light grey suit is perfect for their sunny winter wedding, while adding in those accents of deep crimson throughout the wedding. Plus, maybe we’re biased, but is there a better color palette for these two with their gorgeous hair colors?! The dusty Kansas sunset could not have been more complimentary!

Congratulations, Becca and Isaac! We are so thankful you trusted us to find your perfect gown. We absolutely loved getting to style you and are pumped that you’re a #dgbride! Cheers to the Romaneschis!

Time to introduce our newest #dgcouple, Jessica and Samuel! We fell head-over-heels with their classically bright winter wedding, full of warmth and pops of fun color throughout. They married in December 2020 at the Petroleum Club, one of our favorite Wichita venues! Check out these gorgeous photos courtesy of 3Twenty Photography!

We fell head-over-heels for Jessica’s gorgeous a-line Morilee ballgown featuring tank straps, a corset back, and gorgeous lace throughout. This truly timeless gown was perfect for their classically romantic wedding! Jessica raised the neckline slightly by adding matching lace appliques to make her feel as comfortable and confident as possible on her wedding day.

We love Jessica’s bright Spa bridesmaids dresses, which was the perfect pop of color against her white/ivory gown. We love the secret shimmer throughout her dress that allowed her to sparkle with every step! Jessica picked a simple yet sophisticated Kanali K bridesmaids dress for her girls, including tank straps for support and a super cute keyhole back for a unique twist. We love the whole looks together!

We can’t lovegush on just the girls, however! We’re biased, but we think that Samuel & his guys look just as good! Sam wanted a classic grey look and Alex, our formalwear specialist, matched the bridesmaids dress color to a perfect shade for the boys’ ties. We kept Sam looking sharp by keeping his look grey & white but having the groomsmen be the pop of color. We love the sophisticated look of this whole bridal party!

Drumroll, please, because we are super excited to introduce you to #dgbride Regan! She was planning a super quick and intimate ceremony in the Colorado mountains before COVID changed their plans. Like any good COVID bride, though, she didn’t let it get her down! Regan married her soulmate, Grant, at a gorgeous autumnal ceremony in November 2020. Peep out the fabulous photos courtesy of our girl Shelby Laine – you know, our fav!

Regan chose an absolutely stunning long-sleeve, off-the-shoulder Morilee gown that was BRAND SPANKING NEW in our store the day of her appointment. Like, literally – we hadn’t even steamed the skirt out yet! So Regan was our very first bride in this sample gown and it fit her like a dream. We tried on a few more just to make sure, but everyone was stunned at Dress #1!

We absolutely loved styling Regan for her big day; her flowy, ethereal gown was perfect for her low-key, down-to-earth ceremony. Her bright, bold wildflower florals were the perfect accent to the moody undertone of the day. We love how they pulled the bright accents into Grant’s tie and florals as well!

We can’t show you pictures of Regan and Grant’s big day without including the most important part – their daughter, Lennon! She totally stole the show in all of the photos. We absolutely loved how Regan matched her bridal gown to Lennon’s; the soft lace long sleeves were a perfect mini-me to Regan’s gown! Watching this beautiful family vow to love each other forever made sure there wasn’t a dry eye in the room!

Congratulations to you both, Regan & Grant! We are so thankful you trusted Dress Gallery with such a big decision for your special day. We loved being a small part of your family’s important moment. We wish you a lifetime of love, happiness, & laughter!

Are you a 2021 bride on the search for your bridesmaids dresses?! We got you, girl! We officially received all of our Morilee bridesmaids dresses for their upcoming spring collection! We are loving these fun, eclectic looks that are the perfect way to showcase your party’s personalities. All of these looks are available in multiple color options; stop by Dress Gallery to take a peek at the dresses & their color swatches!

Style 21706

We are loving this flowy flutter sleeved baby! Complete with high neck and pockets, this is perfect for a bridesmaid wanting to showcase her shoulders and collarbones.

Style 21701

Planning a more casual, down-to-earth wedding? Shorter bridesmaids dresses are making a comeback and we love the whimsical handkerchief skirt! Add in the banded waist with softly plunging v neck and this dress is sure to look good on any body type!

Style 21705

This bridesmaid dress gives us some serious 90s vibes! We are planning a Cruel Intentions-styled wedding and Selma Blair’s character would definitely wear this dress. The straight across neckline is very 1997 and combined with the tie straps and leg slit – the only thing that would mae this more 90s is if they made it velvet.

Style 21702

This sexy and fun bridesmaids dress features a ruched top, side cut outs, and multiple spaghetti straps making a fun back. Add in pockets and this is a perfect anchor dress for anyone in your group!

Style 21704

We are loving this flowy, modest bridesmaids dress complete with fluttered cap sleeves and ruffled v neck. The shorter length is perfect for a spring/summer wedding and the accompanied pockets make it perfect for your girls to hold Kleenex for your beautiful ceremony!

Style 21710

This dress is one of Morilee’s most unique for this upcoming collecton. A floor-length, partial crepe / partial satin dress, this mixed-material beauty is perfect for any bride wanting to feel a little more formal. We love the flattering empire waistline and soft column skirt!

Style 21703

Combine one of the season’s hottest necklines with the softest, most feminine of sleeves and you’ve created this gorgeous bridesmaids dress! We love the tighter off-the-shoulder sleeves and the scoop neckline, accented by a higher waist and flowly floor length skirt. Spaghetti straps and pockets make this dress perfect!

Style 21707

Rounding out the last of their short dresses, this style is just waiting for its’ rustic, Midwestern wedding. The flowy, tea-length skirt is so whimsical and lightweight and we love the thicker, supportive straps. Combined with a flattering pulled waistline and this dress is perfect for all body shapes!

Style 21708

If you’re planning a gorgeous beach elopement, please let us put your girls in this gorgeous dress! We think an ocean-front ceremony is the perfect place to show off this new strapless gown, featuring a drop waist and side slit for just a hint of sexiness!

Style 21709

Remember how we were talking about the 90s wedding of our dreams? This would definitely be what Reese Witherspoon’s character would wear in the wedding. This scoop neckline combined with the tie keeps this dress sexy, yet covered. The banded waist is guaranteed to highlight your girls’ bodies!

Which one of these dresses would you want your girls to wear? Let us know!
