One of the things Brides & Tailor is known for are the unique custom wedding dresses that are not found in any local boutique. Many brides find themselves jumping from a bridal shop to another trying to find the perfect gothic/alternative dress that matches their vision or their Wedding Day Theme. It is always so exciting for us to work with unique brides with unique ideas.These are brides who stand out from the crowds because they wish to wear a dress that truly matches their personality!

Emily is one of those brides and she was just a pleasure to work with! This Alabama Beauty reached out to us a few months before her Halloween Wedding, and we worked together remotely to make sure the dress is exactly the way she wanted. Her Wedding Day Photos were just stunning, and were actually published on Alabama Weddings Magazine this May! Check out these gorgeous photos to have some inspiration for your Themed Wedding!

Brief Background about the bride and groom : Tyler and Emily met  in high school while working at their local movie theater. Very quickly, the two became inseparable. They worked together for almost a year, building a friendship that was like no other! Emily and Tyler started dating in 2014. Tyler proposed on her 21st birthday in New Orleans, on a bridge in City Park. The planning process went on with attention to all the small details that would make a Wedding Day so memorable. With a shared love of all things spooky, it just made sense to plan an intimate, dark, and romantic day that was completely them!

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!

Ladies and gentlemen, check out these amazing photos from Mr and Mrs Waddington’s Wedding Day!

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!
