Dress: Your Dream Dress
Soft and Romantic
Classic and Elegant
Romantic and graceful lace is timeless. It is the quintessential wedding dress fabric. Designers have taken this centuries old fabric and given it a modern yet classic update. There are several different kinds of lace, but Chantilly, Guipure and Alencon are the most popular.
Named for the town of Chantilly in France, Chantilly lace became popular in the US in the 1950’s. American brides could not get enough of this light and festive lace. It is characterized by delicate floral or scroll designs worked into a mesh background. Chantilly lace is still popular today with designers and brides. The Ines Di Santo gown below is a gorgeous modern take on the use of Chantilly lace. The lace overlays a silk satin fabric and is simply exquisite!
The French corded Chantilly lace is so luxurious on the Atelier Aimee bridal gown below. The back features a corset which makes this dress sexy and romantic!
Guipure is another lace favored by designers. This lace is a large patterned, decorative lace that does not have a net background. The most dramatic of the laces it makes a bold, romantic statement. The Carolina Herrera wedding dress and overskirt below is breathtaking. Wear the overskirt for the ceremony and remove it for the reception and you have two amazing distinctive looks for your wedding day!
The last of the “Big 3” wedding laces is Alencon. It is known as the queen of laces and a lace for the queens. True Alencon lace takes 25 hours to produce a square inch! Two of our favorite gowns that feature Alencon lace are by Amsale and Monique Lhuillier. The Amsale Blue Label Brighton couture gown shown below is strapless and has an Alencon lace bodice with a full, beaded tulle skirt.
The entire Monique Lhuillier Bernadette couture gown below is made with Alencon lace. It is a classic floor length gown with a sweep train and a V- back.
This Anne Barge couture bridal gown is called Devereaux. This designer wedding gown features a feminine strapless neckline and fitted bodice, which gives a sexy, yet elegant feeling and look to the gown. It exudes drama and glamour from the strapless neckline to the fitted french chantilly lace bodice that glides gracefully over the the hips and stylishly flares into layers upon layers of tulle edged in horsehair and accented with french alencon lace. The delicate silk flower petals accent the bust-line and travel lightly down the bodice and through the light beige sash. The silk petals are accented with lightly scattered crystals to give the gown just the right amount of sparkle and elegance. The gown has all the elements that any bride is looking for Sophistication, Elegance, Romance, Specialness and of course sexiness, too!
So Glamourous and Sophisticated! Can you imagine walking down the aisle in this incredible gown? I can!

For an unforgettable, breathtaking entrance, I would suggest selecting this incredible Vera Wang couture wedding gown. The style is called Eleanor or 120110 and is from her couture bridal collection. It was originally designed for the “Sex in the City 2″ movie for Carrie’s Vogue photo shoot. The gown can be found on the Vera Wang website. The gown features a strapless neckline with drop waist. The a-line full skirt is adorned is intricate and artistically arranged tulle feathered flower embroidery. The back bodice features hand-stitched buttons with a beautiful floral design , which completes is couture bridal look.

Reese Witherspoon Wedding Details Revealed!
After we announced Reese’s wedding a few weeks ago, and that she would be wearing couture bridal gown by designer Monique Lhuillier, we couldn’t wait to find out more details! Their wedding took place in the bride’s $6.95 million dollar home on Saturday, March 26 in her very own backyard in Ojai, California.
Only 120 guests were invited to the couple’s private ceremony, including Scarlett Johansson, Renee Zellweger, Robert Downy Jr., and Matthew McConaughey. Reese’s nieces were the flower girls, and both of her children were in the wedding party! We love a good old fashioned family affair when it comes to weddings, and according to sources, the reception has a rustic theme.
And now to the best part: The Dress. Reese wore her hair down, and both mother and daughter matched in custom Monique Lhuillier gown. Reese’s dress was incredibly romantic, pale pink, with a long pink sash under the bust. She stunned in this timelessly romantic look, and we think she absolutely nailed it!
When asked about the dress she said, “The wedding was a wonderful experience. Everything went perfectly, right down to the dress which I just loved. Monique made it especially for me. She’s been a family friend of Jim’s for a very long time and it was an honor to be able to go to her atelier and have her make one of her beautiful gowns for me. I was just delighted.”
Nothing like the thrill of finding a dress that seems made for you! For all you upcoming brides interested in a similar look, be sure to check out our available Monique Lluillier gowns for your own special day.
Top 5 Wedding Fears Revealed!
After interviewing hundreds of upcoming brides-to-be, author of Wow! Glowing Bride in 30 Days, Laura Pepper has discovered the top 5 fears that bride’s often have when it comes to the topic of their wedding day.
No matter how early the planning begins, it seems a bride’s work is never done. As stress builds from searching for the flowers to the invitations, the registry to the caterer, it’s easy for even the most optimistic bride to begin feeling mentally and physically exhausted. After experiencing her own stressful wedding and talking to other brides, Laura compiled a list of the top 5 concerns that many brides experience, read her findings below:
5.) Being stressed out and unable to enjoy the big day:
Much like the hostess that can’t enjoy her own party, some brides are worrying that on the day she will be so caught up trying to please everyone and worrying about the details, that she won’t have time to reflect on the importance and magic of the day.
4.) Feeling ill:
The immune system is compromised during times of stress, lack of sleep and poor nutrition. It is no surprise to learn then that brides and grooms who have been non-stop during the engagement process, on top of their regular schedules, are prone to catch a cold or flu before or just after the wedding day.
3.) Under-eye circles:
Despite what most people think, under eye circles are not always related to a lack of sleep. They are highly hereditary, and become more common with age when the skin around the eye gets thinner. Sun exposure can also exasperate dark circles, as can allergies. However, being tired and exhausted can make you appear a shade paler, and this will make dark circles stand out. Brides wanted to know how, through diet, lifestyle and makeup, dark circles could be eliminated from their wedding day pictures.
2.) A big red zit:
It’s well known that zits can arise from a lack of sleep and too much stress. In fact the skin is one of the first places to display stress – the body moves circulation away from the skin to support the heart and muscle tissues, and this affects nutrient delivery and the overall complexion. Toxin flushing, digestion and hydration are all compromised, and this in turn becomes apparent on the skin.
1.) Not fitting into the dress:
The wedding dress is perhaps the most symbolic physical item of the brides day, and therefore no surprise that so many brides were concerned with fitting into it! Surveyed brides reported that the exhausting nature of wedding planning makes it a challenge to stay trim though – ordering take-out is easy when there is no time to cook, exercise is on the back burner at the end of an exhausting and jam-packed day, and comfort eating creeps up in times of stress. Learning how to eat right, minimize comfort eating, and find an achievable workout program is essential in order to calm bride-to-be’s fear of out growing her dress.
The last thing we want any of our brides to feel is stress, especially because of the negative effects it can have on your health, mental vitality, and appearance. We hope that here at Your Dream Dress we can make your lives a little simpler by providing you with excellent customer service and gowns that will make you look drop-dead gorgeous on your big day!
