Now *This* is a Stunning Grey Wedding Gown

Happy Weekend! Emma here and I’m curious: what do YOU think of the grey wedding dress trend? It’s been popular for a few years now, but I am finally seeing grey gowns to love just as much as classic white (or ivory, or champagne). Today we’re sharing a handmade grey wedding gown from Milamira Bridal that might change your mind on grey (like it did for me). This is one of my favorite dresses so far, which says a lot because we’ve shared many beautiful gowns in the past. The sweetheart neckline… the ruching… the tulle bodice… the low back… this gown has it all…

Handmade Grey Wedding Gown

This gown is high on my list of favorites for a handful of reasons:

o it is handmade, lovingly made by two passionate young designers. They say, “Every single gown in handmade in our own studio in Saint Petersburg. From sketch to final stitch we do everything by ourselves. We always make sure to peek the best quality materials, order our laces from Europe and experiment with fabrics which are not so common for bridal dresses.” Love!

o it is grey in color (specifically, a bluish grey)

o it features a sweetheart neckline

o this gown has a ruched tulle bodice and low back (two major wedding gown trends right now)

o it features off-shoulder sleeves, which I love… and if you don’t, they’re DETACHABLE!

7 Reasons Your Dress *Might* Need a Sash

When you’ve finally found The Dress, you might be ready to pick out your veil (or alternative), shoes, or even a dress sash. But does your dress even need a sash? Generally, a dress is perfect as is — but a sash can sometimes add a little glam or sparkle to a dress. A sash is never a requirement — but whether or not to wear one really depends on the dress you choose and how the sash will complement your overall look. Today we’re sharing seven reasons why your dress might need a sash.

On to the inspiration and, might I add, some of the loveliest sashes we’ve seen yet! Will you be wearing one?

Does Your Dress Need a Sash?

Here are reasons why your dress might need a sash:

1. You found one you really, really love — and you just couldn’t say no.

I get it. A late night shopping online or browsing Pinterest caused you to find a sash you just couldn’t turn down.

2. Your dress is elegant, but simple — and you crave a little bling.

A sash is the best way to add a little sparkle and shine to your dress. Pearls, rhinestones, Swarovski crystals, or colorful blooms are just a few ways brides choose to add a dose of pretty, personal style.

Sometimes you just need some rhinestones…

Flowy Chiffon Wedding Dress

It’s time for another gorgeous wedding dress to inspire you! I adore everything about this flowy chiffon wedding dress and its sweet v-shaped neckline. We spotted it over at Mila Mira Bridal and thought you might like it, too. Chiffon is one of my favorite fabrics, especially for spring and summer weddings: it’s so soft and airy for hot weather, and styled perfectly for a free-spirited bohemian wedding.

I’m curious to know — what do you think of this style? What does YOUR dream dress look like?

Flowy Chiffon Wedding Dress

This dress features a ruched chiffon bodice and hand sewn corded lace appliqué. I adore the low back style — a huge trend this season.

Modern & Romantic Chiffon Wedding Gown

I loved everything about my wedding gown, right down to the very last stitch. But when I see a wedding gown like this, it makes me wonder how anyone can pick the perfect gown anymore. How can you decide when there are so many incredible + awe-inspiring options? I guess it comes down to this — wait for the one that steals your breath. The one you keep thinking about over, and over. The one that, when tried on, just feels right. I guess those rules never go out of style.

Today we’re sharing an utterly romantic chiffon wedding gown from Truvelle. This gown is perfect for a spring or summer wedding (perhaps mountainside?) paired with a one of these and a handful of boho accents. But that’s just me. Take a look and see why I’m so nuts over it…

Romantic Chiffon Wedding Gown

For starters, this wedding gown features a sweetheart neckline and a low back. The skirt is made from a whopping ten yards of hand-draped chiffon. The bodice is made of French lace; while the back dips into a lace up. I love, love, love the back. Take a look at this beautiful gown:

Ahh, so stunning. Also, I felt it worth noting that this dress also has a fully boned top for structure and support, which means many brides can skip the bra on this one.
