Our beautiful, whimsical Seattle bride Kendall tied the knot this summer at the most beautiful Idaho wedding. Kendall donned our Claire Pettibone Devotion gown perfectly and was truly a dream (a tall, witty, beautiful dream nonetheless) to work with. Congrats Kendall & Ari! We can't wait to share the rest of their wedding photos here in the future, they are breathtaking.

A Visit to Sarah Seven's NYC Flagship

Sarah Seven is a favorite at all our Dress Theory boutiques! Her effortless style, and modern romance make her designs irresistible to our brides. And then to top it off, designer Sarah Seven understands how to make a gal feel beautiful with flattering waistlines and structured bodices. Camille was lucky enough to spend time at the new Sarah Seven flagship in NYC recently. The new flagship salon was so beautiful we couldn't resist sharing some photos of Camille's visit, and of course Camille couldn't resist trying on her two favorite gowns from Sarah's latest collection! 

First up, the Stella gown! This gown has already been a huge hit with our Nashville brides! The soft tulle skirt, deep v back, and illusion neckline with the most beautiful beaded lace all make for a perfectly chic and feminine look. The Stella has Sarah's signature effortless feel, but the beading and tulle make it slightly more formal than some of her more bohemian styles making it just right for an indoor wedding or a garden wedding. 

And when it was finally time to take it off, the Frenchie gown was next!

The Frenchie feels Parisian and elegant, but the type of elegance that can only be achieved with that "not trying to hard" look. The silk slip and slim lace shell is such a fun departure from Sarah's signature sweetheart bustier bodices. We are a huge suckers for that style of top, but love to see one of our favorite designers' experimenting with new silhouettes and fabrics. Like the delicate lace on the Frenchie gown! 

Thanks for inviting us Sarah Seven and team! The new space is beautiful and we could not be more excited for you and all those lucky east coast brides! If you're interested in trying on these gowns or any other of our beautiful Sarah Seven gowns, schedule an appointment online here. We can't wait for you to see these beauties in person.

Ashlee Simpson's Wedding Dress by Houghton Bride!

 Images via E! Online

When we caught a glimpse of Ashlee Simpson's Labor Day weekend wedding, we immediately recognized her gown! The designer of her beautiful gown hasn't been officially confirmed, but in our professional opinion, one of our favorite Houghton Bride two piece bridal sets (the Aligote top with Macabeau skirt) is definitely Ashlee's wedding dress! It looks like Ashlee may have had the top modified with the lining to resemble the shape of another Houghton crop top option as well!

Our brides are loving trying on this set at our boutique and mixing and matching the lace skirt as well. One of our favorite combinations so far as been a bride pairing this full lace skirt with a effortless silk tank. Perfect for a summer wedding! With recent brides like Olivia Palermo and Ashlee Simpson donning two piece wedding ensembles, we are looking forward to more brides embracing the idea of wearing a bridal separate set on their wedding day! We think this looks is a beautiful combination of classic, style, and a little edge. Ashlee looks truly beautiful in the Houghton combination, and we can't wait to see better quality photos. Congrats to the newlyweds!

PS Look at the gorgeous white bridesmaid dresses Ashlee's bridal party wore. Our favorite!!
