When Alex and Evelyn married at the Dacor Bacon House in D.C. this summer, photos of their wedding, taken by the ever so talented Liz Rachel, started floating around, and we couldn’t help but stalk away as more and more got posted. There is nothing we love more than seeing photos of our beautiful brides on their wedding day.
Sugar, Spice and Everything Willowby nice! The wedding dresses in the Willowby Trunk Show are just what you need right now!
The sweetest looks from the Willowby bridal collection have graced our shop and will have you feeling like you’re on cloud 9.
Feeling like a princess on your wedding day is something every bride has thought about. I don’t mean a kitschy, childhood vision of Cinderella. I’m talking about a mature, modern bride, feeling like the most stunning woman in the room, marrying the person of her dreams. As I was sorting through all of our Willowby Trunk Show arrivals, all I could think about is how these wedding dresses are the epitome of a sweet and romantic 'princess' vision translated for the millennium.
Willowby #57711 “Jewel”
Spring 2017 Collection
Retail Price $1,170
| A-Line dress with Ashbury Lace Scallop, Deryn Trim, and English Net. Halter straps with keyhole back and sweep train.|
“Jewel” immediately caught my eye when the Willowby trunk show dresses arrived as it’s such a charming gown. You have your English netting in a clean a-line cut, but the placement of the lace trim and the keyhole back really make it standout. In every sense of the word, this dress said “sweet” and I knew I had to have model, Liz, wear it down the street to one of my favorite downtown Troy locales and very appropriately named, pastry shop, Sweet Sues. Jewel just has something innocent and yet classically bridal about its look. It’s the apple pie of wedding gowns, but with a secret little ingredient! ;)
The "Rorain", another of my favorites in the Willowby trunk show, also has a very soft, sweet princess look but in a completely different way than "Jewel." This dress comes in what Willowby has named “porcelain pink” and to me, it's the ultimate charmer. When I put Liz in this gown, it was like she was floating on a cloud. And I must say, with her natural red hair, I personally was obsessed with the blush tone on her. A-line with a tulle skirt and a lace bodice complete with a sweetheart neckline. There’s no going wrong with this beauty. This is your classic princess wedding dress with a modern twist and complete ease. Add any accessories, flower crown, lace trimmed veil, pearl belt, you get the idea, to complete your personal touch. We just went with cupcakes! Rorain has the quintessential Willowby elements - light, classic, with just the right touch of dreamy! I just love it!
