What’s In The Window?

By | Boutique | No Comments

Once in a while, a dress comes along that just begs for a 2nd look. You know the kind… that “practically fall off the sidewalk, swerve across the lane line staring, “Where’s my phone? I need a picture of that dress!” dress.  Well, there’s no denying that this blush bombshell of a wedding dress is that kind of dress:

 

This gorgeous gown is part of Romona Keveza’s Spring 2017 Legends collection, available exclusively in Milwaukee at White Dress Bridal Boutique.

Our favorite feature on this particular style is hard to choose… the high boat-neckline is a rare detail that, while modest, still manages to be romantic in the best way. Offset by the relatively low, modern square cut back, the dress shows off just enough to elicit that bridal “Wow!” moment as you saunter down the aisle toward the love of your life. Swoon!

Not to be unappreciated is the stunningly soft silk-shantung taffeta material used in the creation of this ballgown. Once again, the fabric quality alone of this Legends by Romona Keveza style is enough for this dress to be considered a must-see by brides wishing to don an ultra-feminine, old-fashioned (but never old-timey) style. Oh, and pockets? They’re there! Romona thinks of everything…

Now, let’s talk about that lace for a moment…

Cascading 360 degrees around the mid-section of this dress you’ll find a lace appliqué that flatters every figure. Perfection -plain and simple.

A detail that we especially love? The way the lace just barely peeks over the back, suggesting a sort of organic shape to the whole design that is utterly irresistible.

Accenting the line of the dress is Renee Pawele’s Nikki Lariat… for this “La Vie En Rose” inspired gown, we’ve chosen it in rose gold, of course! This dress is also available to order in ivory.

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.

By | Boutique | No Comments

There are so many looks to love from the Spring/Summer17 fashion shows… luckily, many of the major trends seen on runways are walking down the aisle as well. Let’s take a closer look at how designers’ high fashion features are carrying over into bridal style…

PINK
Rosé, blush, coral, baby pink… we’ve seen this color trend in bridal on the rise since early 2016. This year, pinks of all shades are dominating runways as well. We simply love this fabulously feminine trend!

FLORALS
In keeping with the totally romantic, ladylike vibe, florals are making an appearance on runways and wedding aisles everywhere! Seen as 2D patterns and 3D accents on dresses of all kinds, selecting a wedding dress with a little flower power will be an ultra fresh pick in 2017 and 2018…

SPARKLE & SHINE

Who doesn’t love a little shimmer in their shimmy? Metallics and sequins/detailed sparkle are lighting up the fashion world in every respect. Your guy/gal and your guests just won’t be able to take their eyes off of you as you dance the night away in one of these sparkly, shiny, stunners.

RETRO REVIVAL
And, finally, not to be ignored is the mega revival of retro!  The ’70s and ’80s are back in full swing, baby. Take any of these rad throwback features (breezy flair, mod, miniature florals, Bowie-esque plunging necklines, shoulder drama) and include them in your wedding day look for a style that’s both cool and contemporary.
