Buckle up, fam, because we have one SPICY wedding coming up next! Our newest #dgbride, Karissa, married her soulmate, Zach, in a super gorgeous, ultra intimate ceremony in late October 2021. Their autumnal wedding featured a fall color palette, simplistic decor, and a couple dedicated to giving their guests the ultimate wedding experience. Our fabulous official photographer, Shelby Laine, shot this super fun wedding and are LOSING IT over some of these shots. Get ready to steal all of Karissa’s ideas from some of our favorite shots below!

Karissa and Zach got married at the Hudson in a super intimate yet ultra modern wedding. When it came to her gown, Karissa wanted something timeless and classic that still fit the sexy-and-sophisticated vibe. Her Essense of Australia dress, style D2487, was the perfect combination! She chose their gorgeous Moscato undertone to compliment her hair and skin and we love the subtle sequining throughout the gown. Add in her dramatic train and fitted silhouette and you have a true STUNNER of a dress!

We LOVE Karissa’s natural wedding day look, complete with the most perfect beach wave hairdo we’ve ever seen. We love that she kept her look natural, yet glam to accent her fabulous gown. We helped style her final look by coordinating a cathedral length beaded veil, framing Karissa’s body and helping create some seriously dramatic photos! Karissa’s vibe is upscale, yet down-to-earth; beautiful, yet approachable! We love that her naturally warm personality shone through in all her photos.

Thank you so much, Karissa, for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique! We absolutely loved getting to know you and helping you find your perfect gown. It was also truly special for your consultant to be a small part of your big day after being college roommates! We love how the Universe puts brides back in our lives after meeting them years before; we are so thankful you are a bride of ours! We wish you and Zach a lifetime of love and happiness. Cheers to the Cobbles!

Alright, y’all, get ready for a taste of ~luxury with this next #dgbride! Our girl, Taylor, married her soulmate, Alex is an ethereal, bright summertime wedding. Taylor’s custom sleeves was a nod to the fabulous Hailey Bieber and her photographer, Sara Rieth, was the PERFECT choice for this bougie bride. You’re gonna fall heels over head with Taylor in these photos below!

Y’all KNOW we love a good puppy photo! Taylor chose an absolutely stunning strapless Essense of Australia gown, style D2888, that featured detachable off-the-shoulder sleeves that Taylor customized into a full length. She kept the look detachable for a quick change at the reception, but we love the elegant, glove-like feel like her sleeves give! Her dress features matte white beading throughout, allowing her to shimmer with every step in the bright sunlight of her wedding day. Add in her narrow, yet plunging neckline and comfortably stretchy fit-and-flare stunner to highlight her silhouette and you truly have a knockout wedding day look!

We love that Taylor chose a dramatic cathedral length veil of plain tulle, allowing for some serious movement in all of her photos! We love that her accent colors are totally bright and airy, complimenting the black-and-white wedding attire beautifully. Taylor’s wedding is a perfect example of how to add bright colors and tons of cheeriness to a formal event!

Cheers to the Johnsons! Thank you so much, Taylor, for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We are so thankful you trusted us to style you for such an important event. We love that you made your wedding look totally YOURS! We wish you and Alex a lifetime of love and happiness!

Guys. You are not even going to be able to HANDLE the level of spiciness that is coming your way. Our newest #dgcouple, Bailey and Nate, are OFF THE CHARTS hot in this wedding gallery shot by longtime fav Justin Casanova. Obviously we’re biased since we styled the WHOLE group for this wedding, but really – this ultra chic, ultra romantic wedding hits JUST the right amount of sexy yet traditional. Get ready to lose it over all the details below!

Right?! We weren’t kidding when we talked about how SPICY this couple is! Bailey chose an absolutely stunning Essense of Australia gown featuring an illusion plunge neckline, allowing her to feel sexy, yet supported throughout the entire day. Her multiple layers of lace created dimension in her gown while the delicate beading allowed her to shimmer with every step! Bailey chose a Rum-undertone for her dress, allowing the lace to pop in this gown with the color contrast! And to top it all off…..this gorgeous dress features a STRETCH LINER, meaning Bailey got to groove the night away with Nate without having to sacrifice her silhouette!

We love that Bailey kept her wedding day look chic and timeless by keeping all of her girls in the same dress, choosing a gorgeous deep burgundy (titled Diamond Club!) with a high neckline and dramatic bag. The high neckline is reminiscent of Bailey’s dress while still keeping all the girls fashionable and stylish. We love the soft A-line of this Jasmine Bridal bridesmaids dress – perfect for dancing!

When it came to dressing Nate and his guys, we knew we wanted a classic look with a modern twist. Bailey and Nate ended up choosing our classic trim fit grey suit with burgundy accents to match the bridesmaids! We love that Nate stood out with his ivory tie to steal the show, while still creating a clean, classic look with traditional grey. Obviously we’re biased, but this is a pretty good lookin’ group of guys if you ask us!

Congratulations, Bailey + Nate! We absolutely loved getting to work with you and helping style your group. We are so thankful you trusted us for such an important day; your group was a blast. We wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness, something we’re sure you’ll have in abundance. Now, cheers to the Jiwanals!

 

We have been WAITING to announce a new partnership here at Dress Gallery and finally – the day has arrived! We’ve been trying to find a way for our brides to celebrate with champagne after they say “YES!” to their dream dress. Kansas liquor laws, however, make that extremely difficult for us to navigate as a retail business. After half a year of frustration, the heavens must have heard us….because Alzavino Wine Tavern opened two doors down! Owned by local couple Danielle and Ken Harmon, we partnered up with this gorgeous new business to help our brides celebrate while also encouraging support for a new local business. We are so thankful they agreed to partner with us; we truly think this is gonna change the GAME on the Dress Gallery experience.

We did a super sexy, ultra cool photoshoot to highlight some of our favorite new dresses and Alzavino’s new space. We wanted this shoot to feel decadent in every way – full of luxury, especially in the wine and chocolate! This effortlessly cool real-life couple, Sara and Ryan, totally encapsulated our European vibe for this shoot. Plus, we might be biased, but how hot do they look?! (Thx always to our girl Shelby Laine for snapping those good good photos.)

Get ready to want ALL of these looks for your wedding day – and get ready to check out Alzavino with your loved ones after you say yes to your dress!

Take a peek at Alzavino’s choco-cuterie board! This decadent dessert board features all LOCALLY MADE chocolate, fresh fruits, flaky croissants, and a chocolate fondue covered in roasted marshmallows. This has QUICKLY become a favorite of all the Dress Gallery girls and was promptly devoured during the photoshoot! Interested in the locally made chocolate? Check out Lovie and Co!

This is just PART ONE of our fabulous photoshoot! Stick around to see the final looks!

We are SO EXCITED to introduce our newest, sweetest #dgcouples, Clare and Wesley! They got married in a gorgeously bright and airy ceremony surrounded by family and friends. We loved their classic wedding with bohemian touches, perfectly captured by their wedding photographer, Evangelyn Craig, one of our local favorites! Get ready to fall in love with this soft, feminine wedding and all the gorgeous details!

When it came to choosing her gown, Clare chose an absolutely stunning and unique Essense of Australia gown – and she’s our only bride to choose it so far! Her soft A-line gown flowed perfectly for her day, while her bishop sleeves was the best combination of modest, yet contemporary. Her dress featured NO BEADING, instead just subtle shimmer throughout the lace thanks to sequinning. Her lace appliques were all leaves, a perfect boho detail that kept her day natural and organic. We love style D3145!

We love that Clare kept her look effortless and easy, with a soft tulle veil and a classic half-up/half-down braided look. We love that she chose a nude undertone for her gown, totally allowing the lace and her gorgeously cool hair color to pop against the gown! And I know we’ve mentioned it before, but we CANNOT get over those sleeves! Clare was totally open to these trendy, fashion-forward balloon sleeves; they’re the perfect *kiss* of boho for her wedding day!

When it came to styling Wesley, we knew that we had to step our game up to keep him in Clare’s league! We landed on a handsome cobalt blue suit to create a bold look, while still staying formal yet relaxed. We love that they spiced up Wesley’s tie choice with a soft floral print in a contrasting color. We have similar floral ties we can pull to create similar looks for your groom, too! Maybe we’re biased, but we love this effortlessly cool, summertime look for Wesley.

Congratulations, Clare and Wesley! We are SO THANKFUL you chose Dress Gallery to style you for your wedding day. We had a blast getting to know you and still can’t believe Clare is our only bride in that dress. We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter. Cheers to the Carrs!

Guys – we just got sent the DREAMIEST of wedding galleries and we are so excited to share! Introducing #dgbride, Tayla, who married her soulmate in the most airy and ethereal ceremony we’ve seen in a long time. Their bright, romantic day was popped with springtime accents and was captured perfectly by their photographer, Lana Cook. If you want classic bridal-style photos, Lana should DEFINITELY be on your short list! Get ready to fall in love with this couple, below!

We can NEVER get enough Kansas sunset photos! Maybe we’re biased, but the natural backdrop of the wheat fields against their neutral wedding color palette. Tayla’s gorgeous “moscato” colored gown was a perfect balance against the golden hour photos. Her husband’s formal-yet-laid back attire with khaki slacks and a classic vest/tie combo matched Tayla’s easy-to-groove Essense dress. They NAILED the effortlessly easy wedding day look!

When it came to choosing her gown, Tayla knew that she wanted something stunning, but totally comfortable. She wanted to be able to dance the night away, but also look absolutely stunning (what every bride wants, right?!) This showstopping Essense of Australia gown fit the bill perfectly. The illusion high neckline is sexy, yet sophisticated, allowing Tayla’s décolletage to be on display while still being totally supportive. The illusion lace side cutouts are a hint of sexy, but are so easy to miss you almost don’t notice they’re there! Multiple layers of lace keep the dress dimensional and the subtle crystal beading throughout adds a touch of glam!

Congratulations, Taylee! Thank you SO MUCH for choosing Dress Gallery as your bridal boutique. We are so thankful you trusted us to style you for such an important day. You were truly a vision! We wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness. Cheers to the Porters!

Guys, get ready to LOSE IT over our next #dgcouple! Alyssa + Thomas got married in a bright, sunny, and romantic June 2021 ceremony surrounded by an intimate amount of friends and family. We absolutely loved their modern, yet timeless spin on their wedding day. Shelby of Hound and Honey Photography, one of our personal favorites, perfectly captured this ethereal day. Take a peek at some of our favorite shots below!

Alyssa and Thomas wanted their wedding to be fun, down-to-earth, and the ultimate celebration of their love. That meant when it came to choosing her dress, we needed to find something that gave Alyssa the “WOW” factor she dreamed of, but the comfort to groove all night long. It was a no-brainer when it came to picking her perfect Essense of Australia ball gown! Style 6838 is fun, flirty ballgown featuring a ruffle handkerchief skirt and horsehair trim, a fabulously sequined bodice, and the ultimate Moscato undertone. Alyssa’s petite tank straps gave her plenty of support, but also allowed her softly plunging neckline to highlight the girls. We love that the dress features minimal beading, instead using sequins to shimmer with every step!

We love that Alyssa kept her wedding day look semi-traditional by wearing a gorgeous lace fingertip veil and pearl + crystal hair piece. Her billowing curls were the perfect accent to highlight her petite shoulders in her gown! Her dusty color palette complete with pops of moody accents made every detail extra romantic!

When it came to Thomas and his groomsmen, we kept the look classic + cool – a perfect foil to Alyssa’s modern boho gown. Thomas elected to wear our style 188 navy suit, called Sebastian, which we think is the best balance between timeless yet fashionable. This slimming color allows for everyone to feel confident, while still feeling bright and airy enough for a summertime wedding. We paired the look with classic navy accents and brown shoes. This is a look that Thomas and his guys can look back on, feel confident, and also know they can comfortably dance the night away!

Congratulations to the Edmondsons! Alyssa and Thomas, we cannot thank you enough for trusting Dress Gallery to style you both for your big day. We loved getting to know you and are so grateful we get to consider you members of the Dress Gallery family. We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter!

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!

 

Hokay, y’all, get ready to fall IN LOVE with the newest #dgcouple, Eileen and Cameron. They were an absolute JOY to work with – like, literally every appointment with them + their crew had us in stitches. This fun-loving, upbeat couple had the most joyous wedding day packed with pops of bright blues and BALLOONS EVERYWHERE. Their wedding photographer, Heimerman Photography, was a new photographer to us and we quickly fell IN LOVE. These bright, airy photos perfectly fit Eileen and Cameron’s bubbly wedding day. Get ready to wanna steal all their fun wedding ideas with some of these photos below!

Eileen and Cameron’s wedding day was the ultimate celebration in joy and love. Their cheery, blue-hued color palette was perfect for a summertime wedding. Cameron’s stylish steel grey suit was the ultimate compliment to their cobalt + navy day – which was perfect pick, as their sunshine-y photos gave his suit a blue-ish hue! We matched their ties and pocket squares to the bright bridesmaids dresses, allowing Eileen’s gorgeously bright dress to be the center of attention!

For her wedding day, Eileen’s primary focus was comfort. She wanted a dress that would allow her to celebrate with loved ones, move freely around her reception, and dance the night away. Her super chic, yet sophisticated Stella York gown featured a flowing chiffon skirt complete with slit, allowing her extra breeze while also having a hint of sexy in her gown. Her illusion high neckline accented her chest while also giving her tons of support. Her bodice was delicately sheer, keeping with that “hint of sexy” vibe. Add in her gorgeous open back and you have a dress made for celebrating!

Have a mixed gender bridal party? Not an issue – we are master stylists! Cameron featured a groomswoman in his bridal party, so Eileen knew she wanted her dress to match the chiffon bridesmaids, but the color of the groomsmen. Their light grey suits are a perfect contrast to Cameron’s deep steel, and the blue-hued dresses perfectly compliment both sides! Plus, Eileen kept everyone comfortable and confident by allowing them to pick the style that best suited their body.

Eileen’s grandparents own Pioneer Balloon Co, a locally-owned and operated balloon wholesaler that totally allowed her to customize her look. We love that the balloons kept their day fun and upbeat, while still allowing for unique backdrops and cool accents throughout their space. Plus, how special is it that Eileen’s family was able to contribute to her wedding in a way that extra meaningful for them?! Basically, if you need balloons in any capacity, check out Pioneer Balloon Co as your first stop!

Thank you SO MUCH, Cameron + Eileen, for allowing us to style you + your bridal party for the big day. We loved getting to know you, hanging out with you all during the appointments, and becoming fast friends. Your upbeat personalities were always the highlight of our day! We wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, laughter – something we’re SURE you’ll have in abundance. We’re sad to see your wedding over, but excited to watch you grow in your family together. Cheers to the Georges!

Guys, we LOST IT when we saw our newest #dgbride! Jessica married her soulmate, Austin, during one of the coolest and most unique ceremonies we’ve seen in a hot minute. Their photographer, Caitlyn Cloud, TOTALLY captured this fun and feisty day in the best way. We loved her unique posing, effortless style, and super cool viewpoint for this one of a kind wedding. You’re definitely gonna want to put Caitlyn on your short list of photographers – and if you love Jessica’s dress, we have siblings that would look STUNNING! Take a peek at some of our favorite shots below.

How fun are these photos?! Jessica and Austin are such a fun-loving couple and these photos perfectly capture their love. Her bright editing style matches the Bracks’ personalities and we love how classic yet trendy Jessica kept her entire wedding look! Austin’s stunning blue suit made him a fashionable, modern groom to match Jessica’s stunning, sparkly gown!

Jessica picked one of our MOST favorite Essense of Australia gowns – style D2363, a gorgeously sparkly A-line gown featuring bold lace appliques, a layer of secret sequins, and a stunning moscato undertone. We think the champagne/nude color of the dress matches Jessica’s hair and skin tone SO beautifully, yet still ivory enough to feel bridal. She paired it with a simplistic, yet chic beaded fingertip length veil. This dress features all white and crystal beading, meaning she got to shimmer with every step while choosing between whatever metal accents she wants! Gone are the days of exclusively bridal silver….now, you can choose your accents!

Jessica’s EOA dress was one of the first we’d ever seen that featured a layer of sequined tulle, allowing her to shimmer with every step in the natural sunlight. Her organic, natural wedding backdrop was a great contrast to the flowy, ethereal tulle skirt. This dress was perfect for dancing the night away while also creating a “WOW” moment as she walked down the aisle!

Cheers to you both, Jessica + Austin! We absolutely loved getting to know you during your wedding planning process and are SO EXCITED you’re a DG bride. We can’t believe you’re our last bride in this beautiful gown, but let’s be honest – she was just waiting for you! We wish you both a lifetime of love, laughter, and happiness. We can’t wait to show off your funky wedding photos for years to come! Cheers to the Bracks!
