LWD Bride: Becca’s Woodland Whimsy Wedding

3572 SMALL

Inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Alice in Wonderland, Becca and Ryan’s beautiful wedding at Devil’s Thumb Ranch is a true feast for the eyes. We love seeing creative, colorful weddings that show off the natural beauty of Colorado – and of course, we are smitten to see a dress that completely enhances the whole wedding vision. Becca chose the fantastic ‘Willow’ gown by Jenny Packham from Little White Dress Bridal Shop, and we agree that it was the perfect choice.

“Finding my dress is what really pulled everything together for me and helped me define our wedding,” Becca remembers.  When she tried on “Willow” by Jenny Packham, she literally started shaking and crying.  “It made me feel like myself and I knew it was my dress.  It was perfect.”  She describes the vintage inspired dress with its effortless graceful fabric, exposed back, and intricate beading as “natural and comfortable, not too structured or rigid.”  Just like them.  Just like their wedding.

Becca was kind enough to chat with us about her dress shopping experience and about her gorgeous wedding – and she included some of the BEST advice ever to brides currently in the process of looking for their wedding dress. Enjoy!

What did you have in mind for your wedding dress before you started shopping?
I approached the entire wedding planning process with an open mind. I did look through quite a few magazines for dress inspiration but found it hard to find a dress that I liked. I knew that I wanted a dress that was unique. Something that you couldn’t find just anywhere. I also knew that I wanted some type of sleeve and an open/sheer back. I had heard of Jenny Packham but absolutely fell in love after I tried on some of her dresses at your shop. They had the one of a kind look that I wanted and Willow was more fabulous than I could have ever envisioned.

What was your experience like at Little White Dress?

My experience at Little White Dress was perfect. I had heard great things about it from friends and put it on the top of my list to visit. The dress selection and large range of styles allowed me, as a bride, to try on many different styles in one appointment. The sales women that I worked with were kind, knowledgeable and encouraging. I thought that I had found my dress when I tried on Willow, but I wanted to cover all my bases and try on all the dresses that caught my eye. I was able to ship in 2 other Jenny Packham dresses that were not in your store. Although I went with my original love, that extra level of customer service made all the difference to me.

What is your advice to brides in the process of choosing their wedding dress?

When planning your wedding, there are so many opportunities to think about other people, but the dress is all about how you feel. Trust your instincts, choose a dress that makes you feel incredible, try not to listen to what everyone else thinks, and have fun.

Behind the Scenes With Matthew Christopher

LWD-MChristopher-0004

Each year Little White Dress Bridal Shop has the special opportunity to host some of the world’s best bridal fashion designers and their latest collections for trunk shows. While couture quality fashion is available year round at Little White Dress, these trunk show events present the very unique and exciting chance for brides to meet and be styled by the designers themselves and to experience the designer’s complete new collection.

In addition to providing brides with wonderful trunk show experiences, the staff at Little White Dress also revel in the opportunity to learn from the designers during trunk shows so we can increase our knowledge, and in turn provide the very best service and information to our brides. To kick off our Matthew Christopher trunk show, Matthew provided extremely educational and motivational training for our staff, including our expert bridal stylists. Matthew is hands down one of the most inspirational, creative, and passionate designers in the entire industry, and we are always honored with his presence, kindness, and care.

Audrey Michel, Wedding Photographer, was on hand to capture this special session for a behind-the-scenes feature for Grace Ormonde Wedding Style. Little White Dress is thrilled to take part in this joint partnership to represent and elevate Colorado luxury wedding fashion and style.

Our deepest gratitude goes to Matthew Christopher, Audrey Michel, Grace Ormonde, and additionally to Rachael of Intricate Icings, who provided a stunning cake inspired by the Matthew Christopher Monroe gown. Please enjoy an exclusive glimpse of Matthew Christopher and his Devotion collection at Little White Dress Bridal Shop!

New Reem Acra Bridal Gowns at Little White Dress!

We have just received two new show-stopping Reem Acra gowns at Little White Dress Bridal Shop!

Meet fun, flirty, festive Eliza!

We just want to dance all day long in the incredible Eliza gown! With an intricately gathered bodice and the most incredible skirt with layer upon layer of floaty tulle – volumized with “horsehair” (nylon netting) hems, this gown is the perfect mix between a light-as-air fairy and the ultimate fantasy ball gown.

Introducing Sleek, Unique, and Flattering Olivia Wilde

Named after the celebrity, who wore this gown in platinum on the red carpet, Olivia Wilde is an absolutely stunning wedding dress from every angle. She has delicately beaded cap sleeves, a knotted bodice that completely flatters the figure, and a skirt that flows like liquid silk. We are in love!
