Advice for the Mother From the Bride

By Kelly Roper

Keep some tissues in your purse so you have them close at hand.
Support me, but try not to fuss over me too much.
Tell my handsome groom you’ll love him like your own son.
Tell me you couldn’t be prouder of me and the choices I’ve made.
Take a deep breath, let the usher escort you to your seat, and smile, Mom, smile.

“Because You Loved Me”

By Celine Dion

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I’ll be forever thankful baby
You’re the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You’re the one who saw me through through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ’cause you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand, I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love, I had it all
I’m grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don’t know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ’cause you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You’ve been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ’cause you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ’cause you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

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.
