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.

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!
St. Pucchi is a world-renowned bridal gown designer, exclusively available in Colorado at Little White Dress Bridal Shop.
Style #9348 from the St. Pucchi Couture collection just arrived at Little White Dress Bridal Shop. The gown features a slender silhouette and is made of silk shantung and Chantilly lace. The gown is available in champagne or ivory. The sheer illusion lace over one hip and the legs is also featured on the back of the gown and creates quite the “wow” factor!

Little White Dress Bridal Shop will be hosting its annual wedding dress sample sale from July 1-31, 2012. This July, there are more couture gowns, more high-end dress designers and more dresses available than ever before at a fraction of their original price. All sample sale gowns available are priced at $999.00 or lower (originally priced at $1,300-$5,500!).
Our best FIVE tips to having a successful sample sale shopping experience with us:
Book Early. Appointments are required, so you’ll want to book early to get the best selection. We are accepting appointments now. Call 303-814-8972 to make yours.
Be Open Minded. Sample sale shopping can take a lot of brides out of their comfort zones. Truly look at every individual dress and be daring by trying on various designers and styles. Your bridal stylist will help match your style, personality, and figure to various dresses that you may not have previously considered!
Consider Alterations. Our sample sale gowns are available in sizes 8-16. Try on all sizes because most gowns can be altered to fit your body with precision.
Be Ready to Buy. Our sample sale gowns go fast. If you love it, buy it. We cannot hold dresses. Last year a bride went home to “think it over” and returned the next day and the gown she loved was gone because another bride had already purchased it. Bring anyone whose opinion is important to you with you.
Get Excited. Most of our sample sale gowns are couture gowns that are high-quality, well-made and well-designed. We’ll have gowns by Manuel Mota, Cotin Sposa, Justin Alexander, Sassi Holford, Justina McCaffrey, Badgley Mischka, Matthew Christopher and more. Our dresses are designed to make you a stand-out bride in your most amazing wedding gown ever!
Everything I’m experiencing in New York right now . . . Adventures at International Bridal Market, New York City, April 14-16, 2012
Presentation of Fall 2012 Collections
DAY ONE, Saturday, April 14th
For an outdoorsy born and raised in Colorado and Wyoming kinda gal, being in New York City twice a year for bridal market is similar to being in a different country. The excitement and energy of it all lessens my need for food or sleep, and I happily find myself at dinner at 9:30 p.m., and staying up until midnight or later, both things that could never happen at home in Colorado. It must be so many wonderful things, all combined in three days of sheer delight. Join me as I do my best to share all these wonderful, beautiful things.
Bridal gown designers are some of the most intelligent, creative, inspiring, hard working, interesting, passionate and fascinating people I have ever met. Rani Totman, the impeccably elegant designer of Sposa by St. Pucchi, Avine Perruci, and St. Pucchi Couture, and Claire Pettibone, the creative genius of the Claire Pettibone lingerie and bridal collections, are both women who continue to leave me speechless with the beauty of their creations year after year, market after market.
St. Pucchi: Raised in India and Bangkok, and fluent in four languages, Rani Totman’s personal class and elegance are clearly evident in her new fall 2012 collection. Rich details, combinations of different laces, and attached sashes are some of the details that impressed me the most. In addition to three new floor length gowns for Little White Dress that are absolutely exquisite in their unique composition, for those brides wanting a short wedding dress, or a different reception dress, we’ve got two beautiful options from this new collection.
Did you know? The name St. Pucchi come from Rani’s son – “Saint” is a common nickname in India for young boys, and “Pucchi” means playful.

Claire Pettibone: The magic continues in Claire’s presentation of eight new gowns for her “Windsor Rose China” Fall 2012 Collection. Inspired by her grandmother, apparently who was “quite the 1920’s bohemian,” you can see influences in her scalloped silk wedding dress, her intricate embroidered linens she made by hand, her gold rimmed China with delicate painted roses. . . And a good dose of free spirit as Claire Pettibone’s gowns are simply SO pretty. I was pleasantly surprised to see Claire’s “signature” guipure lace from the very first wedding gown she designed in 2004 “Kristene”, in trims on the sleeves and hem of “Grace” in her new collection. Claire’s use of beautifully muted shades of mauve, gold, blue, and platinum, combined with feminine and romantic silhouettes are the essence of her genius.
Did you know? Claire started drawing wedding gowns and veils when she was only 4 or 5 years old!

Musn’t Forget: Like a kid in a candy store, I thoroughly enjoyed my visits with Malis Henderson, Paris by Debra Moreland, and J-Picone! I need to get another display case to hold everything at Little White Dress! More to come on these designers…
