The Return of Angel Rivera & Renee Pawele

By | Boutique | No Comments

We are very excited to welcome the return of Angel Rivera and Renee Pawele to White Dress Bridal Boutique this weekend. We’ve literally been waiting for this event all year ūüėČ

The Angel Rivera collection is the essence of sophistication and glamour in its dramatic silhouettes, finest silks and spectacular beading. Angel Rivera designs for the bride who commands the spotlight. His newest styles are SO new that they are¬†not even featured on his website yet. ¬†The ONLY place you’ll be able to lay eyes on¬†these¬†spectacular beauties before springtime (and work with¬†the designer himself!) is White Dress – this weekend only.

Renee Pawele designs headpieces, veils and accessories  for couture bridal salons internationally. Designer appearances at boutiques like White Dress offer brides an opportunity for personal styling by Renee Pawele and a preview of her new collections. Each piece is handmade in California with the highest quality of Austrian crystal, freshwater pearls and vintage stones.

Remaining appointments with both Mr. Rivera and Ms. Pawele are extremely limited. Book today!

What’s In The Window?

By | Boutique

If you’ve been feeling extra social lately, you may have noticed we’re having a¬†Flash Sale this week in order to make room for all of the incredible new styles¬†we’re stocking… like this one currently on display in one of our windows:

This display features separates from the Watters Spring 2017 collection.

The elegantly¬†embellished Roxie v-neck top dazzles with intricate beadwork from shoulder¬†to hip. The universally flattering cap sleeve is ideal for brides with larger busts and those who wish to keep covered up top. This cut also creates an alluring back design with all of today’s “must-haves”: illusion/sheer, pearl buttons cascading down¬†the center, and a baroque meets boho pattern¬†that commands a double take.



Paired with the simple and timeless Nadia skirt, brides are able to achieve a perfectly balanced look. Satin ribbon detail and a no-fuss zipper closure nod to ease and effortlessness.

And, that fur? (You didn’t think we’d forget to tell you about that fur, did you?). This Linda Richards ivory fox fur shawl is winter warmth¬†at its finest! Just one touch and you’ll be in love… Linda Richards bridal furs are available in Milwaukee exclusively at White Dress Bridal Boutique.

Next time you’re wooed by our window wearings,¬†drop us a line with the subject:¬†“What’s In The Window?” We’ll feature your inquiry (and give you all The Details) right here on our¬†blog.

Meet Courtney

By | Boutique

While your mom, sister, or best friend will¬†be the most important person you bring to your bridal appointment, we have someone just as valuable up our sleeves: your bridal stylist! Luckily, we have a some fabulous women that are excited to¬†be your biggest cheerleader on Team Bride. She will guide you through our gowns, assist you while trying on, answer all of your questions and help style “the dress” from head to hem.

This week, we want to introduce you to one of our bridal stylists, Courtney! She is a senior at UWM majoring in Marketing and she joined the White Dress team last August. Our brides absolutely love working with her because of her contagious laugh and genuine passion for what she does. We decided to give Courtney a little impromptu interview so you can get to know her better!

Who is your favorite bridal designer?

Pronovias! They have such a great variety of styles and I love the way they mix different fabrics and embellishments together. It also helps that they are based in Barcelona since I have an obsession with Spain ever since traveling there!

What do you love most about being a bridal stylist?
Hearing your love stories! From the moment you met, to the moment he got down on one knee, I love hearing the stories behind how you fell in love.

What is #1 on your bucket list?
Travel the world! I think it would be amazing to spontaneously pick up and leave with no plans and see where life takes me.

When you’re not at White Dress, where can we find you?
I enjoy volunteering at The Hope House where I work with kids doing arts and crafts. I love taking weekend trips exploring different cities in Wisconsin and going snowboarding.

What would your dream wedding look like?
Me marrying my soulmate!!! I would love to have an intimate destination wedding overlooking the ocean. I see myself in a simple and elegant gown.

What is your favorite family tradition?
Every summer, my family gets together at my grandparents’ and we make homemade ice cream and bob for apples.

If you love Courtney as much as we do, you can request to work with her at your Bridal Appointment. We can’t wait to help you find your dream dress!
