Happy Anniversary Will & Kate

Posted by on Apr 29, 2015 in Blog

  Four years ago today Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot. Yes, it has been four years since that grand, extravagant procession captivated a city, a nation and a globe. All across this country groups gathered together at all hours of the night and early morning to watch the events live and eat replica wedding cakes. Our own staff gathered together for a royal slumber party dressed in their finest silk pajamas.   The wedding did not disappoint. It was as full of splendor and opulence and excess as we were all secretly hoping it would be. Kate looked stunning in her modest lace gown and years later brides are still looking to capture her timeless look. It is no coincidence that wedding gowns with sleeves have made such a comeback. And it is no coincidence that lace is once again so sought after.   In the years since the Royal Wedding our obsession and the world’s obsession with the couple has only seemed to gain momentum. With each major announcement, each birth, each photo op, each visit to the United States, we find ourselves more and more invested in their story.   As the birth of their second child looms ever nearer fans have already started to gather outside the hospital wing hoping to be the first to know. I don’t think there are any more slumber parties planned, but we will certainly be waiting for the happy announcement.  ...

New Bridal Trends

Posted by on Apr 24, 2015 in Blog

New York Bridal Market was last weekend, and I have spent countless hours pouring over the pictures of all the gorgeous new bridal gowns as they swished down the runway and whirled around the showroom floor. I have to tell you, the future looks very pretty for all you brides-to-be.   Sleek     Dare I say sexy? Yes. There are low backs. There are low fronts. There are cut-outs in the middle. There are sheer sleeves and sheer sides. Many of the latest gowns seem to be taking a decided step away from the vintage lace look that has become so popular recently. Though there is still plenty of lace around there also seems to be more emphasis on fresh and modern. Sleek and sexy.     Colorful     We’ve seen the blush gowns and the pink gowns before, but now we are starting to see color incorporated through pale patterns and hand embroidery. This means more touches of color applied with a conservative hand. This new and expanded use of color helps to solidify the notion that some brides want the chance to buck tradition on their big day.   Back to Back     The back of a gown has never been an afterthought, but this year the back is making a serious play to outshine the front. The bows, the buttons, the sheer tulle and lace appliques all prove how important it is to make both an entrance and an exit at your wedding. Not to mention trains that rival that of Princess Diana’s. Ok, that’s impossible, but the point is the train is making a statement these days, too.  ...

Look Who’s Here

Posted by on Apr 22, 2015 in Blog

The latest addition to our ever-increasing stock of bridal gowns is one from couture designer Enaura Bridal. We are excited to have it here because it’s gorgeous, but it also perfectly exemplifies Enaura’s style, mission, and general handiwork.     Firstly, the beadwork is out of this world. It’s rare to see a gown so heavily beaded, and I do mean heavy, but here it is done in the most masterful, artful way. It’s beaded from head-to-toe, but the overall effect of this isn’t gaudy, as it could be, it’s elegant. It glows and shimmers and sparkles with every movement and that’s because of the countless hours of work and hand-beading that go into every gown. The amount of work that it takes to create this perfect effect is astounding.   That work is evident in the second most important aspect of Enaura and that’s fit. It fits like a glove because it is designed and constructed so well. It hugs the body in all the right places and then gracefully cascades to the floor in a waterfall of beading.   And now all that beauty and beading is just waiting to be tried on.  ...

Feature Bride

Posted by on Apr 20, 2015 in Blog

  Today I am so pleased to share with you another Betsy Bride wedding. Mary Claire and her now-husband Casey met each other their freshman year of college at Johns Hopkins where they lived next door to one another. Eventually their friendship turned romantic and eight years later they tied the knot in Charleston, South Carolina at the Island House on March 27th.     The photos tell the story of a very happy couple who focused their wedding around the things that matter to them most: friends, family and fun. “We made decisions based on what we liked and what made us happy within our budget, without worrying about tradition or customs,” Mary Claire says.     They also made sure to incorporate both of their personalities into the wedding to make it truly their own. “I love pink,” says Mary Claire, “so I went with a pink dress.  Casey is southern so we had the men in vineyard vines ties.  Family is important to both of us, so we had my brother officiate the ceremony, my mother and Casey’s grandmother do readings, and pictures from our parents and grandparents wedding days on display during the reception.”   Mary Claire’s favorite part of the wedding was the reception or simply put, the dance party. “I loved being able to move and groove with everyone on the dance floor.  It was so great to see everyone having a fun time!”   As with all weddings the fun time flew by in the blink of an eye, which is why Mary Claire cautions future brides to enjoy every second of it. “Don’t sweat the small stuff or the things out of your control.  I was stressed up until my wedding day about rain, when I should have just enjoyed the pre-wedding time with friends and family because my worrying was not going to change the weather forecast.”     Naturally, the weather was beautiful, the bride was gorgeous, and every detail big or small could not have been more perfect. Congratulations to Mary Claire and Casey!   Photos Courtesy of Dana Cubbage Weddings  ...

Look Who’s Here

Posted by on Apr 16, 2015 in Blog

  I can’t say enough wonderful things about this Carolina Herrera gown that we just got in stock. It features short sleeves, an illusion neckline, delicate lace embroidery and an A-line silhouette. It also has a subtle sparkle and ribbon details around the wait and bodice. Despite the obvious signs of design, craftsmanship and creativity that have gone into this gown, the overall impression is simply effortless.   It’s just easy. It’s easy to imagine wearing. It’s easy to feel the skirt swishing around you as you walk and hear it rustling as you twirl. It’s easy to picture yourself in it as you walk down the aisle.  ...
