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.

About Paula Varsalona Bridal

Here at Sealed With A Kiss we love Paula Varsalona Bridal. We’ve visited designer Paula’s studio in NYC multiple times to not only see the latest designs, but to see and feel the fabrics she uses and watch how her gowns are made. We are always impressed with the work she does.

Paula’s collection varies in style, but the newest collections have two focuses- city chic and boho bliss. From full ballgowns to fitted mermaid styles, every one of Paula’s designs is an excellent display of fabrics and craftsmanship.

 

We also really love that Paula is more than willing to customize her designs for our brides. Whether you want to add sleeves or change a neckline, Paula can work with you to create the gown of your dreams.

Wedding Gown Style- A-line gowns

A-lines are the happy medium between a fluffy ball gown and the fit and flare–they are fitted on the bodice and then the skirt flares out into an “A” shape, staying loose and flowy from the waist down. Browse through some of our favorite a-line designs from designers we carry in store!

  1.  

    We love the look of this gown! It has an a-line skirt complemented with a high illusion neckline, and the back features lace straps that form a V. The lace on this gown is soft, and gives this look a vintage feel that brides love!

  2.  ajrossThis gown is perfect for the bride who wants an elegant look on her wedding day. The a-line shape of this gown pairs perfectly with the higher waistline, which is accentuated with a sash and a flower. The eyelash lace on the bodice adds another attractive detail to this look.

3.

modern-trousseau-honey

This couture gown features a beautiful scalloped v-neckline and back line. The cap sleeves add a touch of sweetness to the overall look. The gown is pictured with a silk sash with a flower accent, but brides can easily customize the look to their style by adding a sash or belt of their choosing.

4.

This flowy a-line gown is just so romantic! It has all over lace, a deep v-back and delicate straps. If you prefer a slightly fuller skirt, just add a slip! It will completely change the look of the dress.

5.

This beaded a-line gown is perfect for the bride who wants to shine on her wedding day. This gown has a flattering sweetheart neckline, and the vertical beading and lace accents are sure to wow your guests on the wedding day.

6. ajcarolyn

This gown is all about the details. We love the illusion front and back, and the bodice features soft asymmetrical ruching that will accentuate the waist. The hem of the a-line skirt features beautiful scalloped lace.

7.

This charmeuse gown is the definition of elegant simplicity. Brides love the way the sabrina neckline frames the collarbone, and the beaded belt adds a touch of glam to the look. We also love the v-back!

8.

paulavvneckdress

Boho brides love this a-line look! The lace bodice features a scalloped v-neck and back, and you’ll find beautiful lace along the hemline of the skirt. A small beaded sash accentuates the waistline and adds a touch of sparkle.

 

Customizing Your Wedding Gown Through Alterations

Here at Sealed With A Kiss we specialize in customizing a bride’s wedding day look to suit her individual style. Sometimes that means working closely with our designers to combine or create pattern changes on a design, but most of the time our owner-designer Susan and our expert tailoring team do the customizations right here in our store. Here’s a closer look at some of the easy ways you can use alterations to customize your wedding gown.

ja8664customized

Our bride Rachel found a beautiful lace style she loved, but after she bought the dress she thought the illusion neckline was a bit too much–so we redesigned it! Rachel was much happier with the regular sweetheart neckline and beaded straps.

ja8635customized

Our bride Sarah loved an all over silk gown from Justin Alexander, but said she would love it more if it had a lace top–so we made her dreams come true! Our owner Susan worked with Sarah to design an off the shoulder lace jacket that she can take on and off on her wedding day as she pleases. The jacket gives the gown a totally different look, and it was exactly what Sarah was looking for.

ja8793customized

Bride Judy fell in love with the fitted gown on the left, but had originally wanted a shorter dress so that it would be easy to dance all night at her reception–so we converted the skirt into a high-low design!

ja8792customized

Bride Kelli absolutely adored this gown from Justin Alexander, but didn’t want a gown with a high neckline–so our tailoring team created this gorgeous v-neckline for her! Kelli loved how her gown turned out.

Alterations open up an array of possibilities for customizing your gown, so feel free to ask your stylist or seamstress about altering areas you want changed. We guarantee you’ll be ecstatic with the end result!
