What We’re Loving: Floral-Printed Wedding Dresses

As we head to New York City next week, I am anticipating certain trends that I am excited to introduce to The White Dress! Lace has been popular for several seasons. We are going to begin to see a shift away from lace gowns and will see the introduction of more textured embroidery, appliqués, beading and prints! The hot new trend in bridal will be the floral-printed wedding dress. I have been obsessed with this concept for some time and have been hoarding images on our Pinterest. Below are a few of my favorite inspirational images.


I had the honor of styling this stunning hand painted gown by Kate McDonald named McLeod. It is currently being featured on the home page of our website as one of our Musings of a Stylist Inspiration pages. Photography by Kat Harris. Flowers by Hana Floral Design.

This stunning fabric was hand painted by Kristy Rice of Momental Designs and was turned into a romantic gown by Chaviano Couture. I had the pleasure of styling it for a romantic shoot that was featured in Well Wed Magazine. Photography by Julie Marowski for C10 Studios.

Introducing a Collection of Backless Wedding Dresses from Beneath the Gown

We are thrilled to be collaborating with a dear friend and a local talent on a new collection of backless wedding dresses! Josie Jolon is an incredibly skilled dress maker and lingerie designer who worked as one of our in-house seamstresses for years. She now owns a lingerie and foundations boutique in Branford called Beneath the Gown. Josie is the queen of all things sexy and is a master at perfecting a garment’s fit.

We have introduced the Beneath the Gown Bridal Collection with 2 sensuous styles. Both are lace, lined with stretch charmeuse, and have delicate straps and plunging backs. We have these styles sampled in sizes 2, 10 and 14 to try on and are they wonderfully priced at $2500. The silhouettes are customizable and Josie provides the option of visiting her boutique in Branford for a custom muslin fitting, which allows our brides to see their gown in the process of being made!  Ring us at 860.669.4596 to try these beauties on!
