Wedding Wednesday ♥ Annalise Madsen

It’s Wedding Wednesday and we want to share our De Ma Fille Beauty Annalise! We are thrilled to share her photos because they are just absolutely stunning. Fun fact: Annalise was our first Mikaella bride! We brought on Mikaella about a year ago and all the gowns give a simplistic, classic and beautiful fit. Annalise chose style 2066 which is a sleeveless Crepe gown with a jewel neckline, embroidered lace illusion back, and Swarovski crystal buttons that cascade down the back. To add her own personal touch she added a Rose Gold crystal applique from Untamed Petals to her waistline. Photography: Heather Rowland Photography    ...

Bridal Gown Shopping Tips

Bridal Gown Shopping Tips

Is your best friend (or someone close to you) getting married? Have you become the elected wedding planner? Is your bride clueless? Wedding planning can be overwhelming to a newly engaged bride. There’s an endless list of things to do and remember- from details about the venue to picking out flowers that are in season, and of course, choosing the perfect dress. We’ve put together a quick guide on bridal gown shopping tips to help you and your bride stay on top of all the planning. Of course, the first step to all wedding planning should be picking the date. This will let you know how much time you have to order a gown, and will drastically affect the options available to your bride. Know what to expect at a bridal appointment. Not everyone cries or has that big moment like on Say Yes to the Dress- and that’s okay! Most brides try on their top three dresses a couple of times before they know, although there are always those special few who find their gown on the first appointment. Remember that finding a dress is like finding your guy: once you find him, you don’t keep shopping around for something better. Make sure your bride gives herself enough time to plan and enjoy the bridal gown shopping experience. Brides should start look looking about 10 months before the first wear date, and order no later than 8 months before the wear date. (Remember, your wear date may not be the same as the wedding date- bridal portraits are usually prior to the wedding.) Why so much time? Bridal gowns are not like normal off the rack...
