Laura’s Dress was “Love at First Sight”

A Wedding Dress StoryBy Laura H. “The search for my wedding dress was such a special day! My mom, mother-in-law, maid of honor, bridesman, and I made a day of it. It is one of my favorite memories of the wedding planning experience.  My dress came from RK Bridal in New York City, and was one of the first dresses I tried on. True to the experience of many brides, my wedding dress ended up being nothing like I had imaged I would wear on my wedding day. I thought for sure that I didn’t want a strapless dress or beading, but the consultant encouraged me to give it a...

Third Time’s the Charm for Ariella

Wedding Dress StoryBy Ariella “After having no luck at the first wedding dress store that I visited, I was discouraged and doubtful on whether or not I would find a dress for my special day.  Those feelings disappeared as soon as I walked into Here Comes the Bride in San Diego, where my older sister had found her beautiful wedding dress. I guess the third time really is the charm, as the third dress that I tried on turned out to be the one! With its unusual jeweled top, open back, and graceful skirt, I knew that I had found my dress!”...

Jennifer’s Stunning Vintage Gown

Wedding Dress StoryBy Jennifer F. “Chris and I got married on November 24, 2018 at the General Sutter Inn in Lititz, PA. The General Sutter Inn is just beautiful and a super cool historic site. It fit wonderfully with the vintage style of the dress and accessories. Our day was just perfect. The only slightly negative thing was it was cold and raining.  But it did make for some beautiful photos!  The rain also explains the stained hemline as we did our first look photos and bridal party photos outside in downtown Lititz. The Dress [My...

The matching custom veil was made by Sara Gabriel Veils, and features a white to deep blue ombre color, adorned with ombre blue Swarovski crystals. Loren’s wedding...

Jenny’s Wedding Dress Preservation Preserves Memories of Husband

A Wedding Dress Story By Jenny Jenkins I purchased the gown in a little boutique type shop in Washington, North Carolina in 2001.

Justin Alexander Gown Is Classic Elegance for Ilyse

A Wedding Dress Story By Ilyse Kornblau I first found out about the wedding dress designer, Justin Alexander through Facebook ads. The more I researched him, the more I wanted to wear one of his gowns. My style has always been classic elegance with a 1950-60’s theme. We originally found the dress that I eventually purchased several sizes larger at a bridal store and had written it off. At our next stop, my mom found the dress in my size on a mannequin. It fit like a glove on my petite body. After trying close to fifty dresses at four stores, I knew this was the one. We actually ordered...

Melissa’s Buyer’s Remorse Turned to Love at First Sight

A Wedding Dress Story By Melissa Martin When I started dress shopping I thought I wanted something simple and understated. I was thinking a sheath with maybe a little lace or just all satin. I actually picked a sexier sheath style dress originally and immediately had buyer’s remorse. Looking at photos I loved the dress, but I didn’t feel like myself in it and I never had that bridal moment where I knew for sure it was the one. Luckily, Marina Morrison (in San Francisco) let me come back and try on more dresses and then I decided that I would come back for the Oscar de la Renta...
