Inspiration: Oceane and Flutura

Blue Tulle Wedding Dress Inspiration

Searching for something blue? Look no further than Oceane. She’s wild and subtle, fun and refined, and whimsical and classic. Shown here with blush charmeuse, the tulle actually parts to show peeks of the lining (and your shape!) as you walk. Can you say swoon?

We love how she’s juxtaposed in this inspiration shoot with Flutura, a more fitted and architectural gown that would make for a perfect reception change.

Because two gowns are always better than one.

Real Weddings: Meet Madison

Real Bride Wedding Inspiration in France

We can’t get enough of #carolhannahbride Madison’s charming and rustic wedding, set in the dreamy French countryside. Madison chose Senara in satin faced organza for her laidback nuptials, and the result was truly timeless. We love how she paired it with minimal accessories, letting the gown speak for itself! And now, we’ll let these photos speak for themselves.

Wedding Inspiration: Texture with Triteia

Triteia’s structure and fit makes it a great option for indoor weddings, but these photos encourage us to think outside that box.

In an outdoor setting, the textured jacquard fabric mimics organic motifs found in nature, making Triteia look quite at home. Captured during golden hour, the intricate gown made for a dreamy contrast against sun-kissed hilltops.

So while she may have originally been inspired by the sea, on land, Triteia’s certainly found her legs.

Real Weddings: Meet Marjorie

Real Bride NYC Wedding Inspiration with the Hibisci gown

#Carolhannahbride Marjorie was looking for a unique gold wedding dress for her New York City wedding when she found our Hibsci gown! The intricately seamed fitted bodice and flowing organza skirt complemented her petite frame perfectly.

Marjorie accessorized with our Monarch crown and her favorite leather jacket, and the result was pure magic.

Rehearsal Dinner Outfit: Gold and White and Glam all over!

Speaking of unique gold dresses, Marjorie wore our Gramercy Dress for her rustic rehearsal dinner. The romantic setting and lighting really brought out the metallic details of the dress, and the modified neckline was a subtle nod to her wedding dress.

Congratulations cuties!

Wedding Inspiration: Black and White Florals

Black and White Wedding Palette

We are in the black and white mood these days! We love this wedding trend of chic monochromatic tones with a moody twist! Dark need not mean gloomy! The black accents act as a fun modern contrast to to an otherwise creamy palette, making this classic pairing feel oh so fresh.

Wedding Separates in A Whimsical Print

One of our favorite things about bridal separates is how easy it makes putting your own take on a look. You can style these pieces a myriad of ways to find your perfect unique wedding day statement! Seen here with the Kensington tank in black, our Anthorium skirt is an artful piece for the bride-to-be seeking some whimsical flair!

Clean and Easy with the Ilia Gown

Clean, Modern Lines

We love the way this bride-to-be styled the Ilia gown with unexpected pops of black while still using a fairly traditional bridal color palette. It only takes a few details to totally change the vibe of your look. Take Ilia for example! The curve hugging trumpet silhouette is also classically “bridal,” but the angular seams that cut across the bodice, hips, and booty throw her firmly into the modern realm!

Real Weddings: Meet Kaitlyn

A Trumpet Gown and a Trailing Train!

Our #carolhannahbride this week is the lovely Kaitlyn, who chose the fit and flare Xyris gown in silk/cotton mikado and flowing silk organza to celebrate her nuptials in this gorgeous church wedding! We just love how flattering this trumpet silhouette is on Kaitlyn, and the architectural seaming looks killer on her! The scooped peaked bodice and squared off train throw a modern twist onto a classic bridal shape.

What a couple of babes! Congratulations you two!
