Designer Day and Trunk Show with Antonio Gual this month!

In just a few weeks, Sealed With A Kiss will be hosting a trunk show and designer day with the one and only Antonio Gual. We can’t wait!

During the trunk show we will have a variety of designs from Antonio’s Tulle New York collection for brides to see, feel and try on. You can check out the collection here:

Designer Antonio Gual himself will also be in store to meet with brides, tell them about his work, and to offer design and styling input. Not many brides have the  chance to meet the designer of their gown, so this is truly an amazing opportunity!

Appointments will be limited, so be sure to call today to schedule yours!

Wedding Gown Style: All About that Back

  1. This two-piece gown has a bodice that features a gorgeous lace illusion back. The ruffle skirt is also one of our favorites!

     

  2.  We love how low the scalloped v-back on this gown goes! It is such an elegant look.

 

3. The back of this gown features lace appliques and a cut out design- perfect for the bride looking for a boho chic look.

 

4.  This gown may look simple, but it is all about the details! Brides feel luxurious in the Dupioni silk fabric, and the bow closures on the back add a touch of fun to this a-line silhouette.

 

5. For brides looking for classic elegance, this gown is sure to fit the bill! This gown features a lacy illusion front and back design with a scalloped-edged look.

 

6. For brides who prefer a little sparkle in their look, this Grecian inspired a-line gown is bound to be perfect. It features an illusion neckline and back with gorgeous hand beading.

 

7. This gown exudes elegant simplicity. This v-neck gown features a sequined illusion top, giving off the perfect touch of sparkle

8. For brides looking for a truly show-stopping look, this fitted gown is sure to be perfect! The button up illusion back creates a stunning circular lace pattern, and the monarch length train perfectly complements the regal style of this gown.

Jessica and Patrick were married on December 18th, 2016. They had a gorgeous ceremony and reception at the Mill on Fine Creek.

Jess came to us back in March to help her find the perfect dress. She had done a little shopping before coming in for her appointment with us, but had yet to find a dress she loved. The third dress she tried on with us turned out to be the “one.”

Congratulations Jess and Patrick!

Why We Love Anny Lin Bridal

Anny Lin comes from family of wedding gown designers, and she has blended designs and techniques that have inspired her to create truly unique, couture designs for the modern bride.

Every gown in her collection features an array of carefully designed, eye catching details such as beading, feathers, cut outs and draping.

Anny Lin’s designs feature a variety of silhouettes and fabrics. Brides love that she is not afraid to add color to her gowns, so many designs have blush, champagne and ombre options.

We also love Anny Lin for their willingness to allow the individual bride to be a part of the design process–they will customize and combine designs to create a one-of-a-kind style to suit the needs and wants of the bride.

Be sure to schedule your appointment for the Anny Lin Trunk Show soon! You will not want to miss out on a chance to see these gorgeous dresses.

Wedding Gown Style: 2017 Trends

The new year is almost here, and with it we’re expecting a new set of designs from our designers. We saw many of the new designs at fall bridal market, and have seen “sneak peeks” of the designs expected to be showcased at the upcoming spring market, so we wanted to share what wedding gown trends you can expect to see during 2017.

  1. Ruffles

Gowns with ruffles have been scarce for a few years, but designers are bringing them back! For brides who think that an all-over lace gown or all-over beaded gown are too much, but don’t want a plain skirt, a ruffled skirt is a beautiful way to complement a more fitted bodice. We are so glad designers are sending us gowns with ruffles again!

2. Off the shoulder necklines

Off the shoulder necklines are so flattering, and we feel like we don’t see enough of them on wedding gowns, so we’re glad some of the designs from upcoming collections we’ve seen have featured them a lot more!

3. Plunging Necklines

Plunging necklines are another trend we’re expecting to see a lot more of in 2017, with designers taking a chance on more sultry looks. We can’t wait for our brides to fall in love with some of these styles!

4. Detachable Skirts, Trains and Capes

Detachable pieces have often been popular, but they were usually considered accessories that had to be specially ordered or custom made to go with the dress–but we’re noticing that 2017 is bringing us designs that already come with detachable skirts and capes, allowing brides to change up their look between the ceremony and reception without added time or costs. This is one trend we’re really happy about!

5. High necklines

Designers are also showcasing designs with higher necklines in a variety of styles! Whether you’re looking for a glam style or you’re more boho chic, there’s a high neckline gown you’ll love coming out in 2017.
