If you’re a bride wanting to make a grand entrance on her wedding day, Little White Dress Bridal Shop has some designers for you to consider. These statement gowns send your guests the message that you are a bride to be watched!
The queen of statement wedding dresses is St. Pucchi. These designer gowns are luxurious, lavish and timeless. St. Pucchi gowns are often infused with colored jewels, hand embroidery, delicate beading and sparkling crystals. Some of the more opulent gowns from St. Pucchi come from her Couture collection. These dramatic dresses are often adorned with Swarovski crystals and lavished in lace and silk.

There is nothing old-fashioned about wearing a vintage-inspired wedding gown. In fact, what’s old is new again when it comes to today’s bridal trends. Colorado brides who want to capture the feel and excitement of past decades will delight in several designers that have truly captured the vintage spirit and feel in their wedding gown works of art.
When shopping for your vintage-inspired gown, look for lace, pops of color, pearls and feminine necklines – each of these qualities adds dimension and interest to the gown. Look for ivory, pink, green or champagne color schemes too. Floral accents are also popular for brides channeling old-world styles from the 1920′s, 30′s and beyond.
The owner of Little White Dress Bridal Shop is Cate Malone, bridal stylist extraordinaire! We asked Cate to share with our readers her top wedding dress picks this summer. Here is a list of Cate’s favorite designer wedding gowns that you can find right here in Denver at Little White Dress Bridal Shop.
St. Pucchi: I love this most adorable dress ever by St. Pucchi (#Z350)! Made with a combination of extravagant Guipure and Alencon lace motifs and adorned with organza bows, it’s so perfect as your rehearsal dinner dress, reception dress, or morning after wedding day brunch dress! Absolutely adorable! The floor length version of this same dress is also available at LWD!

Badgley Mischka: The “Melody” gown by Badgley Mischka features a draped bodice of pearl silk charmeuse and a narrow A-line skirt of laser cut hearts. The movement of the skirt is so fun and beautiful, and I love the layers and layers of little hearts!

Rivini. The “Catalina” dress by Rivini features an asymmetrical draping of various English tulles to sculpt the bodice and flares out in voluminous layers of organza. It’s light, simple, sophisticated and oh-so-flattering too!

Claire Pettibone: Just arrived! Claire Pettibone’s “Toulouse” gown features ivory embroidery lined in platinum silk with a deep sweetheart neckline, silk ribbons and bows, and silver flowers. I LOVE the beautiful lace pattern and the hanging ribbons – such a romantic touch!

Rain on your wedding day is a symbol of good fortune!
Our staff in Colorado can’t help but worry about all the victims of the wildfires in Boulder, Colorado Springs and Ft. Collins. Some of us are personally impacted or know someone who is.
While Coloradans have banded together to pray for rain to help ease weather conditions, we couldn’t help but wonder the meaning of rain. After all, every bride has heard that it’s considered “lucky” if it rains on her wedding day. Is such a superstition true?
In our research, we learned that rain is a symbol of many things.
For one, it brings moisture to dry areas, which can create life and help plants grow and animals hydrate. Rain and water are essential to life on earth.
Further, rain is often considered a symbol of fertility. Water helps things grow. A couple may hope that one day their marriage will be blessed with children.
Rain also is symbolic of a new start. The water can cleanse the earth and help wash away past debris. A marriage is a new start for a couple. If it rains on your wedding day, consider yourself blessed with a clean slate.
Remember, if it rains on your wedding day, don’t be bummed; rather consider your marriage to be blessed with good fortune. Just make sure if you decide to take pictures outside in the rain, bring along a beautiful umbrella to match or contrast your gorgeous wedding dress. Consider an umbrella one of your must-have wedding accessories if you think there is a chance for rain on your wedding day.
Oh, and if you want to know your best chances to have a “rainy” wedding day, reference the Farmer’s Almanac to see which days offer the best chance of precipitation. Good luck!
Please leave us a comment. LWD Brides, did it rain on your wedding day? If yes, how did you cope?
