Our Awesomely Romantic A-Line Wedding Dress of the Week

Our Awesomely Romantic A-Line

Wedding Dress of the Week

Ah, romance! That feeling of excitement associated with love. It’s what we live for. And, this week we’ve welcomed the most beautifully romantic lace and tulle ballgown to The Gilded Gown. Our gorgeous bridal stylist Amber was so happy to model the wedding dress for us.

This pink champagne confection is available in sizes 14, 20, 26, and 30. Priced at just $1359 this V-neck stunner features an easy-to-wear A-line silhouette.

What does A-Line mean?

The term “A-line” refers to a dress which has a hem much wider than its shoulders. They’re called “A-line” because their skirts form a triangle shape that mimics a capital letter A. A-line dresses are one of the most popular dress silhouettes for several reasons. Most importantly, they are designed to flatter any body type and size. This gown shape emphasizes a narrow waist and enhances the bust line. Another reason brides love this silhouette is for the nostalgic, traditional feel it affords. After all, every princess wears one! And, finally A-line gowns are also extremely comfortable to wear.

Pretty Elements That Pop

Brides looking for pretty elements that pop will LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this wedding dress. Because our beauty is loaded with pretties. First of all, the dress is embellished with LOADS of clear crystal beads, clear sequins, AND clear bugle beads. Plus, beaded spaghetti straps complement the bodice. Sheer cutouts under the arms are another sweet touch. Also the gown is lavished with gorgeous floral lace appliques and vines. And finally this creation features a gorgeous underlay of embossed floral sequin net.

Constructed with Care

This dress is designed with lots of care. Because superior construction is evident in many unseen elements of the dress. For one thing it has an invisible zipper down the back, which is hidden within a seam. The only part that is visible is a slender zipper pull at the top. The gown also has boning sewn into the bodice which provides excellent support. A full lining of satin provides a soft layer.

The Top 5 Newest Most Beautiful Bridal Gown Trends

Being in the bridal business we are lucky enough to see many bridal styles come and go. And, to be honest, we fall in love with all of them through the years. But we get so excited when we see fresh design elements rise in popularity. We rave over new details and silhouettes. Recently bridal designs have emerged with lots of new style trends. Read on to see our Top 5 Newest, Most Beautiful Bridal Gown Trends.

1. Kimono Sleeves

One of the hottest trends in bridal this year is Kimono Sleeve Wedding Dresses. And we are here for these boho beauties. Kimono Sleeves are loose and free-flowing. Technically, they are cut from one piece of fabric and attached to the bodice in a wide sloping shape. And, at The Gilded Gown, we are heart-eyes over this all-over lace, plunging-V wedding dress.

Isn’t the back of this dress just as delightful as the front? We think so! The Kimono sleeves continue around the dress and are edged in scalloped lace with eyelash fringe. In addition to being a show stopper, this gown also features another one of our top five bridal trends: organic trains.

2. Organic Trains

What’s an organic train you may be asking? Well, an organic train is a train with a unique and organic shape. Traditionally bridal gown trains form a circle. Organic trains take many shapes and can compliment many wedding themes. For example, this charming wedding dress is adorned with a triangle-shaped cathedral-length cutout train. And, we think this beauty would be right at home at a rustic venue.

Designed by Lillian West this gorgeous crepe bridal gown features a Fit and Flare silhouette. The sheer bodice has a plunging v with an illusion panel and spaghetti straps.

3. Off-Shoulder Gowns

You know a bridal style is popular when you see it all over Pinterest boards and Instagram feeds. Off-shoulder gowns are trending big-time across all social platforms. We have a large selection of stunning off-shoulder looks at the Gilded Gown. One example is this gorgeous A-line silhouetted gown which features lovely off-shoulder long sleeves. This dreamy dress is constructed with soft bridal tulle and loaded with lace appliques.

More sweet details include an intricately scalloped neckline, clear bugle beads, and a Basque waist.

4. Straight Necklines

Straight across necklines are gaining in popularity among designers and brides alike. We’ve seen them on the fashion runways in Atlanta, Chicago, and New York. As an example, we present this fabulous lace option by Diane D’Angelo.

This exceptional gown is perfect for lace-loving brides looking for something extra special.

5. One Shoulder Dresses

One Shoulder or Asymetric Dresses are the perfect balance of unique and timeless. They’ve reentered the world of fashion with a punch. And, this dramatic neckline works seemlessly for either casual or formal weddings. For those looking to make a style statement, we suggest choosing a one-shoulder style with noteworthy detailing, like oversized bows, ties, or floral appliques. However, we absolutley adore this adorable one shoulder dress with big ruffles.

Enchanting and Ethereal Boho Accessories For Unique Brides

We Love Boho Vibes

Boho style is a free-spirited aesthetic that mixes eclectic details with layered textures and natural elements. Inspired by bohemian hippies of the 1960s and 1970s, this vibe revolves around flowy skirts, embroidery, beading, and fringe. Also, the look is often layered and always eclectic. And we love all things boho around here. So, if you are getting married and want to incorporate a boho feel, read on, to see some lovely options you can adorn yourself with on your wedding day.

Boho Your Wedding Day Look With Accessories

Accessories can absolutely transform any wedding dress to fit a specific vision. For example, if you add the perfect sash or pair of statement earrings to a simple gown, you can easily elevate the look into a bohemian masterpiece. Indeed, we have an entire collection of enchanting and ethereal boho accessories for unique brides at The Gilded Gown. So, we invite you to browse our selection of unique headpieces, one-of-a-kind hair clips, boho belts, and interesting earrings. We have everything you need (and more!) to make your dream bohemian wedding day vision come to life.

Unique Headpieces

Boho headpieces abound at The Gilded Gown. You can try on floral crowns, hair vines, clips, and combs to your heart’s content.

Boho Belts

Encircle your waist with a delicate bridal belt for maximum boho style. Pretty options are available in rose gold, gold, and silver. These can also double as headpieces, too!

Enchanting Earrings

Boho brides look adorable with organic, layered earrings. From delicate drops to ornate statement earrings, we love anything brimming with boho details.

We love these with tiny seed pearls, embellished leaves, crystals, and lavender stones.

We Love Boho Brides

Free and easy, wild and free, gypsy spirited brides are welcome at The Gilded Gown. In addition to our boho bridal accessories, we also carry a beautiful collection of bridal gowns. Looking for lace, bell sleeves, and/or plunging necklines? Schedule an appointment to try on options with us.

We’ll leave you with a beautiful poem, perfect for a reading at a boho ceremony by poet Kahlil Gibran.

On Marriage

BY Kahlil Gibran

Then Almitra spoke again and said, And
what of Marriage, master?
     And he answered saying:
     You were born together, and together you
shall be forevermore.
     You shall be together when the white
wings of death scatter your days.
     Ay, you shall be together even in the
silent memory of God.
     But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
     And let the winds of the heavens dance
between you.

     Love one another, but make not a bond
of love:
     Let it rather be a moving sea between
the shores of your souls.
     Fill each other’s cup but drink not from
one cup.
     Give one another of your bread but eat
not from the same loaf.
     Sing and dance together and be joyous,
but let each one of you be alone,
     Even as the strings of a lute are alone
though they quiver with the same music.

     Give your hearts, but not into each
other’s keeping.
     For only the hand of Life can contain
your hearts.
     And stand together yet not too near
together:
     For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
     And the oak tree and the cypress grow
not in each other’s shadow.

All About Bridal Designer Diane D’Angelo

How Diane Became A Designer

Diane D’Angelo is an internationally recognized bridal gown and accessories designer. Her love of design began in high school. At the time Diane could never find any clothes she liked in stores. So she took it upon herself to design and make her own clothing.

Her interest in creating beautiful clothing grew as she gained experience. She was inspired by the elaborate costumes of Bob Mackie. Bob famously dressed Cher and many other celebrities. Diane began drawing dresses inspired by his style. Diane ended up with some incredible wedding gown sketches. Her extraordinary passion for designing unique dresses was born. Eventually, her sketches transformed into an entire collection of unique bridal gowns, accessories, and veils.

Diane’s Carefree Vision

Diane hails from San Diego and her dresses reflect her hometown. Because each of her gorgeous gowns is imbued with a carefree and cool Cali-girl spirit. Diane’s designs are perfect for confident brides looking for something beautiful and sexy.

Chic Details and High-Quality Fabrics

Diane’s creations feature lots of chic details and high-quality fabrics that stretch and conform to the body. But most importantly, Diane’s designs are both lovely AND easy to wear. She says, “I design because I believe that happy and comfortable brides are the most beautiful brides.” 

Designs for Every Bride

Her collection of gorgeous gowns includes designs to please every bride. Beach brides love Diane’s flowy, breezy options. Cathedral-bound brides just adore her stunning ballgowns. Boho brides are in heaven looking at her lacy, Instagram-worthy looks. Outdoorsy brides getting married in barns, fields, and forests can also find a dress to fall in love with. Whimsical brides can’t get enough of Diane’s off-shoulder sleeves. Traditional brides appreciate her modest neckline options. So if you are looking for the perfect dress for your special day we are sure you’ll find your dream dress in her line.

Meet Her In Person!

Diane creates some of the most amazing wedding dresses and accessories sold in fine salons throughout the US and Canada. We are proud to be an exclusive retailer for her at The Gilded Gown. We are thrilled that she recently relocated to Powell, Tennessee! And, since she lives close by now we are able to offer our brides the amazing opportunity to meet with her in person.

Design Your Own Custom Gown

We are proud to offer our brides the chance to purchase their dream dress from her current collection in our store. But we are also so excited to be able to offer brides a chance to come and custom design a gown with Diane in person. Because she is such a talented designer and dressmaker, she is able to easily translate every bride’s unique vision into a completely custom wedding gown. Another option: she can customize any of her stock gowns that we carry at The Gilded Gown.

Brides who love pearls meet PearlCore, the hottest fashion trend!

Brides who love pearls meet PearlCore, the hottest fashion trend!

What is pearlcore you may be asking? Pearlcore, my dears, is the art of adorning oneself with the gorgeous, luminescent orbs of beauty known as pearls. Taking social media by storm, this old-school staple is appearing in fashion houses and streetwear alike. And, brides, especially are incorporating these iridescent lovelies into their wedding day accessories like crazy.

Pearl Everything!

Pinterest reports terms such as “pearl gown,” “pearls,” and “pearl ring” as trending, big time. And, we are fairly certain that this iridescent gem will be a bridal staple this year. So we’ve loaded up The Gilded Gown’s accessory department with pearl everything. You’ll find dresses encrusted with pearl details, embellished veils, earrings, garters, necklaces, bracelets, and loads of pretty headpieces too.

Pearl Bracelets

One way to incorporate these lustrous, highly prized gems on your wedding day is to wear some around your wrists. At The Gilded Gown, we have pearl bracelets in loads of styles. We have options in rose gold, gold, and silver with all shapes and sizes of pearls.

Pearl Earrings

Imagine all your close-up wedding photos of your face highlighted by a gorgeous pair of pearl earrings. Shop our selection of delicate pearl drops, decadent pearl chandeliers, and fun pearl statement pieces to find the picture-perfect finishing touch to your look.

Pearl Necklaces

When you think of pearls, do you first imagine the classic strand necklace? If so, we do offer traditional pearl necklaces as well as lots of fashion-forward options too.

Pearl Headpieces

One of the most wonderful ways to wear pearls is with a gorgeous headpiece. At The Gilded Gown, you will find all types, from fanciful to traditional. Luckily you can try on all the styles to find the perfect pearl hair accessory for your special day.

Pearl Veils

Another way to incorporate your love of pearls on your wedding day is to wear a veil featuring the precious gems. We stock a lovely selection of veils with lots of different styles featuring pearls.

More About Pearls

Pearls aren’t just pretty. They also have some neat qualities. For example, historically pearls have symbolized wisdom gained through experience. The charming gems are also believed to offer protection, as well as attract good luck and wealth. And, they are well-known for their calming effects. 

Pearls are unique among gemstones because they come from the sea whereas others stones arise from the depths of the earth. They also are the only gemstones that require no special cutting or polishing to showcase their lustrous beauty. For this reason, pearls have been treasured since ancient times.

Wedding Dress Sleeves 101: Beautiful Options

Wedding Dress Sleeves

Looking for the perfect sleeves for your dream wedding dress but not sure what they’re called? Loving those dreamy, whimsical sleeves on Pinterest, but not sure how to describe them to your bridal stylist? No worries, we’ve got you covered. Read on for a guide to all the beautiful sleeve options available to you for your special day. After all the right wedding dress sleeves make a timeless and captivating style statement.

Batwing or Dolman

Batwing sleeves are also known as “Dolman” sleeves. These are long sleeves, cut wide at the shoulder with deep armholes that lead to thin tapered wrists, giving it a “wing-like” appearance. Historically Batwing Sleeves can be traced back to the Middle Ages. Originally they were loose sleeves folded from the fabric of cape-like robes.

Bell or Peasant

Bell Sleeves aka Peasant Sleeves can be either long or short and usually flow from the shoulder and flare out toward the bottom. They look a lot like poet sleeves. One way to tell the difference is that bell sleeves hardly ever have ruffles, while poet sleeves often do.

Bishop or Lantern

Bishop sleeves are long sleeves that are gathered at the bottom with a button cuff. These are pretty much the same thing as Lantern sleeves. One difference is that Lantern sleeves usually feature sheer fabric.

Bracelet or Long Sleeves

Bracelet aka “long” sleeves reach just above the wrist.

Butterfly

Similar in style to bell sleeves, butterfly sleeves flare out from the shoulder, but usually do not fully cover the arms.

Cap

Cap sleeves are short sleeves designed to cover the shoulder and the top of the arm, with little or no extension under the arm.

Flutter

Flutter sleeves are very similar to butterfly sleeves except they are generally a little shorter and wider, and fall loosely.

Juliet or Leg of Mutton

Juliet or Leg of Mutton sleeves are full and gathered at the top, with a lower part fitted and seemed to the top part above the elbow. These sleeves are very old-fashioned and yet they are starting to appear in the newest, cutting-edge bridal designs. Everything old is new again.

Kimono

Kimono sleeves are super wide and come in short or wrist length. This style is based on traditional Japanese dresses and is popular with boho brides.

Lantern

Lantern sleeves balloon out between the wrists and the elbows and then gather again around the wrist. Very similar to Bishop sleeves except lanterns feature sheerness.

Marie

Vintage vibes radiate from Marie Sleeves which are full to the wrist but tied in intervals with ribbons or bands.

Marie sleeves are named for someone who wore them often, Marie Antoinette.

Off-Shoulder

Off-Shoulder Sleeves are any type and length of sleeve that do not cover the shoulders.

Poet

Poet sleeves are fitted from the shoulder to the elbow and then they dramatically flare from elbow to wrist. They often feature ruffles on the cuffs.

Puff

Puff sleeves are short sleeves that gather at the top and cuff and are very full in the middle.

Joanna & Joshua

Joanna is absolutely beautiful in her lace aline gown. The dress has a deep v that has been filled in with an ivory modesty panel and the dress is covered in delicate floral lace appliques. The couple had a Pinterest dream wedding making every prop and decoration themselves. They were also married on their personal property. Joanna said, “Everything about our wedding was completely perfect, the weather, the activities, the ceremony, the food, and especially the groom and family.” The photographer was Alexis Lee Photography.
