The next gown is an ivory Alencon lace bridal dress with strapless sweetheart neckline and elongated bodice, horsehair belt at natural waist, three tiered tulle skirt with horsehair trim and chapel train by Tara Keely.  The veil that pairs perfectly with this dress is one of our all-time favorite veils, the Phoebe veil by local designer Sara Gabriel Normally reserved for garment construction, horsehair looks ahh-mazing as a trim and helps the veil hold its shape.  Bonus: It coordinates perfectly with the horsehair trim on the bottom layers of this Tara Keely dress!



Our next set of favorites comes to us from the hottest new designer there is, Hayley Paige.  This beautiful bridal gown has a casual elegance with it’s slim silhouette in ivory silk georgette with Grecian draping.  This beautiful wedding dress also features lovely crystal floral beaded straps and crisscross tulle detailing at center back with chapel train.  We adore this style paired with the Sara Gabriel Bernadette clip which features SWAROVSKI® crystals in a filigree styled brooch!



One of our favorite wedding dresses of the year is this simple, yet stunning ivory mikado bridal ball gown with accentuated cinched waist, beaded crossover straps and chapel train from Jim Hjelm Blush.  So simple, yet so elegant with just enough delicate beading detail to make this a “wow,” dress that is lightweight and comfortable!  This dress pairs perfectly with the Sara Gabriel Natalie clip  featuring gracefully swirling loops of horsehair ribbon.  This beautiful little hair clip is the perfect compliment to this dress as well as almost any style. Wear it in the front like a hat, or further back on your head and it almost looks like a flower!
