Are y’all ready to LOSE IT over our next #dgbride?! Because we totally did when we saw these gorgeous sneak peeks! Alexis married her soulmate Josh, in a gorgeously bright and airy summer ceremony. We received some sneak peeks of her wedding courtesy of her photographer, Chris Cerna, and we fell in LOVE with her classic ceremony look. We won’t be surprised if brides show us pictures of Alexis’s dress in the future!

See?! We weren’t kidding?! Alexis picked a super stunning, fitted, long-sleeve Morilee gown for her look. Featuring soft beaded detailing throughout the lace appliques and a gorgeous off-the-shoulder neckline, we love how soft and petite her frame looks in the dress. Add in her dramatic cathedral length veil and you have serious WOW vibes!

Take a peek at some gorgeous detail shots! Her soft tulle sleeves were the perfect combination of trendy yet modest, allowing her silhouette to be the true stunner in this dress. Her illusion back features dramatic detailing while also giving her tons of support for her day. When you mix in the gorgeously detailed train, we truly believe this gown was made for her!

For her color palette, Alexis stuck to a bright and airy coral and navy combination. We love the pop of pinks and corals she used throughout her wedding, including the bridesmaids dresses, and utilizing different shades of blue to highlight the day. Josh and his groomsmen wore classic navy suits, a perfect complement to the bright pinks accents!

Cheers to the Springers! Thank you so much, Alexis, for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We truly loved getting to know you and we are so thankful you allowed us to play a small part in your big day. We wish you and Josh a lifetime of love, laughter, and happiness. Congrats to you both!

Style with a beaded veil for an extra pop of sparkle and this baby is ready to stun!

INTRODUCING: CARITA

Carita is literally the most ethereal dress we’ve seen in a hot second. Her soft A-line skirt is perfectly flowy, yet voluminous and her soft tulle v neckline with lace appliques totally checks all the soft, feminine, yet sexy boxes. We love the lace appliques applied throughout the bodice and skirt, creating negative space and visual dimension throughout the gown. Her subtle sparkle allows you to shimmer with every step while making YOU the focus in this dress. We can’t wait to see photos of a bride frolicking with this gorgeous skirt!

INTRODUCING: CELINE

Ready to truly SHINE? Then you need to try on Celine during your appointment! This sexy, fitted gown features an entire layer of bold glitter tulle, giving you dramatic shimmer while highlighting your silhouette. The sexy plunging neckline combined with the sheer bodice, open back, and fitted silhouette is just ASKING for a bride with curves. The bold yet feminine lace throughout keeps this dress soft while still being totally dramatic!

INTRODUCING: CHRISTINE

We absolutely love this illusion neck, A-line STUNNER featuring a secretly sexy plunging neckline and bohemian lace appliques throughout. Her double banded waist is cute and trendy while also totally highlighting the smallest part of your body.

We think that this dress would look fabulous against a bold backdrop, like a hotel ballroom or industrial venue!

INTRODUCING: CORINNE

Can’t decide between fitted or flowy? Do both! Corinne is literally the best of both worlds. The flowy overskirt gives you a whimsical vibe while the fitted Chantilly lace underskirt shows off your silhouette. Her gorgeous top layer of lace brings the two together, accompanied by a soft v neck, delicate beading, and slightly sheer bodice. Whether you’re getting married in a church ceremony, a beachside elopement, or anything in between, Corinne is a dreamy pick!

Ok, fam – we cannot WAIT to introduce you to our newest, cutest #dgbride! Introducing Hayley, who married her soulmate Mathias in a gorgeously springtime ceremony. Their photographer, the fabulous Katy Elaine, totally captured their light-hearted, sunshine-filled down perfectly. Get ready to fall heels-over-head in love with this cute couple, their love, and their gorgeously classic wedding!

Hayley chose an absolutely stunning off-the-shoulder Morilee gown featuring bold, yet classic, lace and secret sparkle throughout. Her clear sequins kept her shimmering with each step in the natural light! She chose a traditional all-ivory color, which totally popped against the natural greenery and accents of blush she used throughout her look. Mathias perfectly complimented her in his classic navy suit and brown shoes – a style as timeless as their love!

When it came to picking out her gown, Hayley had a wedding vision, but was totally open to suggestions. Her willingness to try on new styles while also staying true to her authentic likes made the perfect combination of finding her gown! We truly believe her Morilee gown was waiting here for her to say yes! We love that she chose to stick to classic ivory and natural accents, allowing her beautiful features to be the stunning focus. We’re grinning just looking at their happy faces!

Congratulations, Hayley and Mathias! We absolutely loved getting to know you and are so thankful you trusted us to style you for such an important day. You were truly stunning and we can’t wait to showcase you for years to come. Thank you for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness. Cheers to the Dahlmans!

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!

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.

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!

We’re dreaming of a gorgeous, sunny, summer afternoon with this wedding! We are proud to introduce #dgbride Karen, who married her soulmate, Jordan, in a bright and bubbly August 2020 ceremony. Her wedding was organic, airy, and full of laughter – check out some of the photos thanks to Scott Chandler Photography!

Karen was an absolute K N O C K O U T in her pure white Morilee ballgown. You read that correctly – pure white! We rarely have brides choose to go the traditional route of ivory (as it often can read harsh or stark in photos), but Scott Chandler did a phenomenal job of shooting this dress to perfection. Combined with Karen’s gorgeous skin tone and this white dress truly pops!

Karen’s off-the-shoulder Morilee ballgown featured multiple layers of lace, a hidden layer of glitter tulle, a subtle-yet-sexy off-the-shoulder neckline, and she accessorized with the perfect blingy belt to highlight her waist. She kept her look simple, traditional, and timeless and we think she knocked it out of the park! We love her loose, big curls that accentuate her shoulders and the collar-length necklace is the perfect accessory.

Congratulations, Karen & Jordan! We are so thankful you chose Dress Gallery as a small part of your special day. You were such a joy to work with and we are proud to call you a #dgbride. Cheers to the Watsons!

Our next featured #dgbride is Lakin, who married her soulmate Dominique on July 31, 2020 in an ultra dreamy mountainside ceremony, complete with scenic backdrops and the most gorgeous of weather!

Lakin & Dominique’s original wedding date was scheduled for June, but they later had to change their plans due to the pandemic. Their wedding turned into an intimate ceremony in Boulder, CO. Lakin kept their wedding palette natural, with no specific colors except navy blue for Dominique. She let Mother Nature do most of the hard floral work!

Their original destination wedding featured a guest list of 50 people, but COVID tightened up their ranks. Instead, they turned their flexible wedding into a mini-mony and a fabulous party afterward!

Lakin chose a simply stunning lace Morilee fit-and-flare gown, accented with beaded spaghetti straps and light beading throughout the bodice. Her low maintenance train was perfect for pictures, but also climbing! Accented with soft blues, Lakin’s gown was the best compliment to her down-to-earth personality.

Lakin went to three bridal stores before landing at Dress Gallery. “I felt like I had tried on a million dresses, but it was probably like 30,” she said. “I knew I wanted a mermaid fitted gown to show off my figure and bling!”

Her Morilee gown was the perfect combination of understated yet elegant. After describing what she was looking for, her consultant pulled “The One” after only a few dresses.

“My girl Courtney hooked me up with privacy and customer service. She never went over my price range and she made me feel comfortable the whole time!”

Lakin’s favorite memory from her wedding day had us rolling when she shared with us. Prior to the ceremony, Dominique was trying to moonwalk and broke his shoe. Like, the whole sole came off of the shoe. Everyone was roaring laughing, so he passed it around to have everyone sign. It became their unofficial second guestbook.

“We’re never going to forget that memory!” Lakin said.

Congratulations, Lakin & Dominique! We are so thankful you chose Dress Gallery to be a small part of your big day. We wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness!
