ONCE UPON A GOWN

Wedding Wednesday ♥ Katie Jokel

It’s Wednesday and that means that we have another gorgeous bride to post! Today we are featuring our De Ma Fille Beauty, Katie Jokel, in her beautiful Ti Adora wedding dress. We are so excited to feature Katie because she is a sorority sister to our owner Megan. (Yay, Alpha Gamma Delta!) Katie’s wedding dress has a sheer lace bateau neckline with a low open back, and consists of an ivory lace over a champagne charmeuse lining. Katie added an antique gold sash, named Dahlia, from Untamed Petals to adorn her waistline. We just adore her bridal portraits and think she looks so elegant and timeless!

Wedding Wednesday ♥ Morgan Walker

It’s another happy Wedding Wednesday on ‘Once Upon A Gown’! Today we are featuring Morgan Walker in her beautiful Martina Liana wedding dress! Morgan’s wedding dress is a part of the Martina Liana Separates Collection. She is wearing the “Cayla” corset, which is a sophisticated beaded lace over tulle with a sweetheart neckline, matched with the “Scout” skirt made of French tulle. We love the combination of these two pieces and love how they come together to make one wedding dress! Morgan and Kodey tied the knot on June 16, 2017 and had their reception at The Mopac Event Center. Congrats to the newlyweds!

Wedding Wednesday ♥ Kaytee Nelson

Today is Wednesday and you know what that means for Once Upon A Gown…Wedding Wednesday!!! We are so happy to get to share with you all our gorgeous bride Kaytee Nelson. All of these photos are just absolutely breathtaking! She also had an amazing photographer for her big day, which we highly recommend to check him out if you are still in need of a wedding photographer! Kaytee is just a natural beauty, but her glam expert definitely did a great job in highlighting her beautiful features. Kaytee wore a fit and flare wedding dress by Essense of Australia. Her dress featured a low cut back which is perfect for someone who wants to be a little sexy but not too risque. This beaded lace and tulle wedding dress hugged each curve and helps show off that hourglass figure. I think we can all agree at just how stunning Kaytee looked in her wedding dress. Kaytee tied the knot on April 8, 2017 at The White Sparrow in Quinlan, TX. We absolutely adored all the little details of this wedding from the flowers to the ring box. Congrats again to the newlyweds!

Wedding Wednesday ♥ Ashley Williams

It’s another Wedding Wednesday and we have been waiting with excitement to share our beautiful bride Ashley Williams! She looked absolutely gorgeous in her wedding dress and we love so many of her photos! Ashley wore the “Halo” gown from Blush by Hayley Paige. The wedding dress had an ivory embroidered lace bodice with a scalloped V-neckline, and the back was low with an intricate strap detail. The tulle skirt on this wedding dress was extra fun with the tiers trimmed with horsehair fabric; which is a signature of Hayley Paige gowns. We can’t get over her breathtaking bridal portraits; especially with all of that greenery and the ones of her in the meadow are just jaw dropping! All of her photos look so whimsical, ethereal, and light which checks off everything we love! The big day looked so magical, and we adore the newlywed photos… again with all that greenery! Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. Hodge who tied the knot on July 1, 2017!

Wedding Wednesday ♥ McLayne Wallace

We are so excited to finally share all of McLayne’s beautiful photos from her big day! McLayne definitely made a statement in her Essense of Australia wedding dress. Her wedding dress is accented beautifully with long lace sleeves, and her skirt speaks drama with those layering tiers. She was definitely stunning! McLayne was married at the romantic Ashton Gardens on July 7th 2017. We love the breathtaking views you get of outside through those beautiful windows. Also, we just adore the feet washing that McLayne and Chris did during their ceremony. What an amazing act of love and we wish them all the best!

Wedding Wednesday ♥ Olivia Padilla

It’s another Wedding Wednesday and today we are featuring the beautiful Olivia Padilla! Her bridal portraits were absolutely breathtaking! We love how unique it was taking her photos in Calloway’s Nursery. The photos of the orange hibiscus’ and her detailed back are just stunning. Olivia wore a fabulous Martina Liana wedding dress that features intricate beaded lace, a flirty low cut V-neckline, illusion keyhole back, fabric buttons cascading down to the scalloped lace train.  Every single one of these photos are dreamy and romantic!

Wedding Wednesday ♥ Aubry Lawless

We absolutely adore our De Ma Fille Beauty, Aubry! It was such a pleasure helping her find the wedding dress of her dreams that also made a statement! She looked absolutely stunning in the Nicoletta gown by Hayley Paige. Aubry got her wedding dress in the alabaster color, which we are obsessed with because it gives off the mixture of lavender and blush (our favorite colors). The Nicoletta dress is a tiered tulle ball gown with a floral beaded ballet bodice with spaghetti straps that crisscross in the back. Aubry had so many gorgeous photos that made it very hard to narrow down for this post! Shout out to Beatbox Portraits for taking such wonderful photos of her beautiful wedding. Also, every detail of the wedding that Aubry chose was fabulous. What an awesome team of wedding vendors!

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.

Wedding Wednesday ♥ Risty Logston

  It’s Wedding Wednesday and we are sharing one of our gorgeous brides, Risty Logston. She was such a sweet bride to work with and it truly was a pleasure helping her find her dream gown. Risty is wearing a Martina Liana gown, featuring an illusion neckline with a fine lace bodice & Bellagio crepe skirt trimmed with a scalloped lace. Floral crowns are a little obsession of ours, and we are certainly in love with the one Risty wears after the ceremony. I think we can all agree that this gown was absolutely perfect for her Los Cabos wedding!  Risty, we wish you and your new hubby so much happiness!                                                                                                                                  ... read more

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... read more
