You’re going to want to let your hair down for this one, honey: Brickhouse Bridal is bringing the gorgeous Claire Pettibone Romantique collection to the Houston area, with an exclusive debut trunk show next weekend! Flowing silhouettes, feminine off-the-shoulder sleeves, delicate lace and intricate back details—these are the style hallmarks of this bohemian-elegant bridal collection, designed, Pettibone says, for “the type of bride who prefers turquoise to diamonds, wildflowers to roses.”

That’s not to say you can’t rock a few sparkling rocks with your diaphanous Romantique wedding dress (this is Houston, after all!). Come, experience, see for yourself how you can personalize your ethereal and lovely, made-in-California Claire Pettibone Romantique gown with your own signature style—whether it’s a flower crown and ballet flats, or a shimmering sash and vintage pumps. Did we mention that these beauties are under $3,000, and feature fine crepe and chiffon, Chantilly lace, delicate embroidery and other exceptionally high-quality fabrics and embellishments?

Appointments for this trunk show are a must; call 281.681.3430 to make yours today. Brickhouse Bridal’s wonderfully gracious and knowledgeable consultants are waiting to welcome you…and guide you to the Romantique dress of your dreams!

Outdoor Spring Wedding by Civic Photos

It’s true, everything is bigger in Texas- especially weddings. Just ask Houston bride Bella and her hubby about their 1,400-guest reception. The couple had a true Texas spring wedding with blooming orchids, an outdoor reception, and a 16-layer cake! Guests enjoyed the perfect weather and some good ‘ol Southern food: roasted beef, pico, beans and freshly squeezed Lemonade (mmm). Oh and did we mention how stunning Bella looked in her full-sleeve, chic lace bridal gown from Parvani Vida? Thanks Civic Photos for capturing all of the sweet deets from Bella and Irvin’s wedding, we’re in love! Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!

Peach, Green & Gray Rustic Wedding

Amy and Elliot met at a July 4th barbecue, instantly hit it off and the rest was history. The pair traveled to a private beach in Mexico to celebrate their one-year anniversary. Little did she know that he had planned the sweetest proposal on the last day of their romantic getaway. Needless to say, Amy said “yes”, and started planning their Spring wedding. Amy and Elliot envisioned an upscale-rustic wedding with personal touches. Lanterns, beautiful flowers by Blooms Design Studio, tea lights, and a seating chart (built by Amy’s brother and bridesmaid) were just a few of the simple details that brought their vision of an elegant, yet rustic wedding come to life. Check out all of the sweet deets from their wedding below. Congrats and well wishes to the newlyweds!
