It’s no secret that we love a good party, and when we were selected to carry Kate Spade’s Bridal Shoe Collection we couldn’t help but celebrate- BIG TIME. We planned a Saturday Soiree/Pop-Up Shop that was sparkly, pink and just as polished as Kate Spade herself. The entire bridal shoe collection made its way to The White Dress and we rounded up some fabulous vendors to help us transform our store into something truly special! The event featured furniture and decor from Ryan Designs, a lip beauty bar by Jennie Fresa, arrangements from Blush Floral Designs and sweets from TASTE by Spellbound.
See all the pretty (captured by the fabulous Michelle Wade) below:
A big thank you to all everyone who shopped with us at the event, we loved outfitting you in your new Kate Spade Shoes!

With our Amsale Bridal Trunk Show rapidly approaching (November 7th-9th), we thought we would share our jovial anticipation with you by posting some of the that will be in-store this Thursday through Saturday.
We love how Amsale adapted it’s ‘forever modern’ style to suit the tastes of any bride this season- whether you would describe your style as etherial/bohemian (see Carson) to city-chic (see Houson and Jane) to classically elegant (see Cameron and Bryant), there is truly a dress for every bride in Amsale’s Fall 2014 Collection!
Ring us to book your trunk show appointment to receive 10% off the ‘forever modern’ gown that’s just for you! Purchase during the trunk show to be gifted a FREE veil in addition to your discount! 860.669.4596
Can’t get enough Amsale? While you’re at it book an appointment for next weekend’s Amsale Bridesmaid Trunk Show from November 14th-16th.
It’s been the equivalent of Christmas in the boutique lately with new arrivals being delivered nearly everyday! We are excited to share with you a few of our absolute favorites along with our stylists’ suggestions of a suitable venue for each gown.

After posting our Spring 2014 Bridal Market Trends we have to share with you the trends we saw for maids as well. Unlike bridal designers who showed their Spring 2014 lines this April, maids styles being shown at April Market are a preview of what is hot for Fall 2013, as they take less time to produce. Not every designer shows during April Market but below is a sampling of all the most stylish trends for the upcoming wedding season from Ivy & Aster, Amsale and Donna Morgan.
Pattern, texture and rich tones dominated the runway. Ivy & Aster’s printed lace dress is one for the record books- it looks like lace from far away but up close it’s just a black and white print- very chic and oh-so-modern. Amsale took a more classic approach using a deep aubergine lace on one of their trademark styles.
These new styles from Amsale highlight another trend- unique necklines. Its a great way to bring diversity to a single color or shape that you choose for your maids- one shoulder, halter and strapless all with the same basic waistline and silhouette. We adore this rich jewel tone color palate as well.
One of our absolute favorites from Ivy & Aster- this feather texture has that Gatsby vibe that is all the rage right now and we are on board 100%! The sheer V-Neck also gives us a little more coverage right where we need it.
How awesome is this pleated bodice from Ivy & Aster? We love how much interest it adds to an otherwise simple silhouette and how texture doesn’t just have to mean patterning or lace- it can also be created just by adding dimension to chiffon. You can try both of these beauties for yourself at our Ivy & Aster trunk show May 9th -11th.
The shots below are from Donna Morgan’s Instagram account- behind the scenes shots of their Fall 2013 ad campaign, styled by our friends at Merci New York. We just had to share, as they are just to fabulous not too. We love the deep jewel tones paired with furs and rich, full bouquets. We also peeked at a velvet style from this designer which really had us swooning.
Although we are all dying for summer to arrive, these gorgeous trends actually have us looking forward to fall!
