One of the most gorgeous Dress ideas we had for 2019 was the beautiful contrasting combination of White and Black in creating This Black and White Wedding Dress for our bride, Julie. If you are a bride who’s looking for a Black Wedding Dress but everyone around you is hoping to see you in traditional white and ivory colors, Black and White Wedding Dress Ideas are the next big thing!

When Julie first booked an appointment with Brides & Tailor, she explained that she wanted a unique custom wedding dress which would truly be a statement dress. She gave us all her ideas, and together we were able to suggest creating a mermaid wedding dress which has white lining underneath, and black lace combined with black beading to give the dress a unique look without it looking too filled with colors. The end result was simply stunning! We are more than happy to share with you some of Julie’s Wedding Day Photos from Summer 2019! We have received countless of messages about this particular custom black and white wedding dress, so we were waiting for the perfect time to showcase it to you:)

What I loved the most about Julie’s Wedding Day were the colors! The bridesmaids/groomsmen wore Steel Grey Dresses and suits, while the maid of honor and matron of honor wore Black. The cake also looked so elegant with Black/White accents and even those cupcakes matched! The thing that was even more amazing is that it’s so clear that the bride and groom and everyone else were just having a blast! Having a Wedding can be so stressful sometimes, but it’s the fun,crazy memories that make it so worth it 🙂

So, are you ready to impress your wedding guests with a unique black and white wedding dress like this ? If Mermaid Wedding Dresses aren’t suitable for your body type, there are many more wedding dresses styles that can be done  in white and black! Dare to look different on your Big Day! Don’t forget to add some black and white colors to your Wedding Decor and other aspects of your wedding like the cake, flowers,tables to make sure all colors look great together!

Valentine’s Day is the one time of year you’ll see loud proclamations of love across social media, in the glances exchanged at dining tables, and in the eyes of a man walking home from work with a giant bouquet of roses for his sweetheart.  And so, with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we wanted to feature one of our brides’ beautiful wedding which wasn’t actually on Valentine’s Day, but the colors do make us feel that it actually was! 🙂


When Roszhawn first contacted Brides & Tailor for a custom wedding dress design, she knew she wanted a timeless, statement ballgown. She also wanted to have beadings all over the bodice, and we suggested having see-through tulle that matched her skin tone color so the sleeves look illusional on her body. The end result was just out of this world! We truly appreciate it when brides make a long drive to get to us.We can ship our gowns to all states but meeting our brides is also something I look forward to! Roszhawn made the drive from Cincinnati to Michigan and needless to say, this was a memorable experience she will never forget! When you look at these photos below, you’ll know why- Her gown was a STATEMENT one!


On her wedding day, the colors were just so pretty! The groom wore a Black Tuxedo. The bride’s hairstyle looked very classy and elegant, and the best part about the makeup was the bold red lipstick color.They chose Black and Red for the bridesmaids and groomsmens’ outfits, and the beautiful contrast definitely reminded me of Valentine’s Day in the middle of October:) The cake also matched with beautiful roses and black accents on it. The bridal bouquet was white in addition to all the bridesmaids’ bouquets. In brief, even though the Wedding Dress was black and the entire theme was Red and Black, it wasn’t too Gothic-y! It was a mix of classiness, vibrancy and elegance.


So for all the brides planning to get married on Valentine’s day, out of all of the cheese romantic lovely days to get married on, Valentine’s Day seems like a pretty good choice. Plus you’ll never forget your wedding anniversary!:) Check out some lovely photos from Our Bride’s Wedding Day Below!

If you have been following Brides & Tailor for a while, you have probably noticed that we absolutely love collaborating with other professionals in the Metro Detroit Area to come with awesome Styled Shoot ideas! 

Living in Michigan means having one of the best Fall Vibes among all other US States! We chose to have a partly outdoor/partly indoor shoot for this particular Michigan’s Autumn Styled Shoot, and the colors which were incorporated included various tones of Red, Champagne and Brown. The color choice turned out to be amazing because these Warm, Earthy tones also matched the gorgeous venue which was chosen for this shoot. 

Our bride and groom are actually Husband and Wife! 🙂 I find it so amazing that they love to travel and participate in various shoot sessions and that they’re always together! It is so clear that love was all around! 

The Bridal Gown we used for this shoot is a beautiful Champagne dress with lace all over the bodice with see-through parts also peeking through it . The tulle skirt is a very soft type of tulle which gives such a romantic flow.It is so light and airy was indeed so comfy to wear! The main highlight of this gown is definitely its back! The low back includes floral lace all over the edges to also give a true Bridal statement! Brides & Tailor complimented this look with a custom Bridal Veil in a matching Champagne color. 

The table setup, cake, floral work, accents and the overall vibe all looked in harmony with the bridesmaids gowns and the bridal gown. The jewelry pieces complimented the dresses and the bridesmaids and just looked amazing. The stationary used and the way the rings were arranged also looked so gorgeous! Is it just me or can I also smell Michigan’s famous Pumpkin Spice Scent just by looking at these photos? 

This was such an amazing shoot, and we cannot wait to share with you more! We’re always trying to help brides in choosing colors that blend beautifully for their Wedding Day, and I am pretty sure these photos will blow your mind away! Scroll down and enjoy!:)
