2016 Gown Trend: Illusion Fabric

Friday, April 15th, 2016

Illusion gowns are HUGE this year in fashion, thanks to celebs like Beyoncé, Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez who have been strutting down the red carpet. If you’re in love with low backs or daring necklines but are scared of showing too much skin, sheer fabric is the way to go. Illusion fabric allows you to be demure and sexy at the same time. Check out our favorites from the 2016 bridal runways here—and if you’re feeling this trend as much as we are, go ahead and try them on in person at local Houston bridal salons today!

Navy, Blush & Gray Wedding by MD Turner Photography

Monday, November 9th, 2015

It all started in 2010 when Kaitlyn and Nathan first met after the OU vs. Florida State football game. They immediately hit it off, started messaging each other on Facebook, went on their first date a week later and the rest is history. Four years later, Kaitlyn wed Nathan in a classic Monique Lhuillier gown holding a gorgeous peony and rose bouquet accented with her grandmother’s prayer book. The reception was exactly how she pictured it: simplicity with a hit of romantic elegance, thanks to AJ’s Urban Petals expertise. “It rained all day, but it made the atmosphere more romantic”, said Kaitlyn. Thanks MD Turner Photography for sharing the lovely photos with us and congrats to the newlyweds!

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON Spring 2015 | Real Wedding Feature

Barbara & Billy ~ August 30, 2014

A college meet-cute. A wintry Central Park down-on-one-knee-in-the-snow proposal. A magnificent 225-guest wedding so celebratory that attendees couldn’t wait to start dancing and took to the floor during dinner! Could Barbara and Billy’s nuptial story be any more romantic? The pair’s Petroleum Club wedding had all the makings of an unforgettable evening, from the ivory, gray and gold palette, to the shrimp-cocktail-and-filet-mignon dinner, to the spectacular “statement” cake from famed baker Nadine Moon. Yet it was the feeling of being surrounded by family and friends, and “hosted by the most wonderful parents anyone could have,” that the bride says will forever be her greatest memory of her most special day.
