If you've been following us for any amount of time on our social media pages, we spend a LOT of time talking about our brides and what they're looking for in a wedding gown. But have you ever wondered what our staff would choose if they had a say? Below, we're sharing a special behind the scenes look at our staff picks and why we love them! From ballgowns, to slim silhouettes, from tulle to intricate beadwork and sparkle, discover the favorites that we're secretly hoping our brides will love as much as we do!
"The surprise of this ballgown is in the pinstripe! It is so fun with the ‘cummerbund’ bodice! It flatters most every shape and gives great support- Summer
"I love this shape and structure! To me, structure goes a long way. People feel most flattered with a structured bodice that supports them and holds them up. I love how the bodice is so detailed and secure, and how fun and poofy the bottom is! This is a true ballgown, and has such a flowy and fun, yet regal and elegant air to it"-Alanna
"What's not to love in this dramatic ballgown? I just love the oh-so-flattering neckline with the off the shoulder sleeves. The full skirt is so stunning and the gorgeous, floral appliques make me swoon every time. This will always be a favorite of mine because it also compliments so many body types"-Alissa
"The bodice is so structured on this gown, and the way it hits the waist is always flattering. Every single time I’ve put this gown on someone, they’ve felt beautiful. Whether you're an 18 or a 2, I've seen this gown flatter every body type! I love the beadwork on the delicate straps and belt; the slight shimmer within each of the appliqués, and the way the lace feels so elegant and regal just blows me away. My personal favorite shape of a gown is A-line/Ballgown, and I love that this dress makes everyone who wears it feel like a princess!"- Alanna
"Being an avid lover of the classic ballgown, this gorgeously simple and refined mikado gown will forever be one of my favorites. I love that a bride has options with this one as she can pair it with a dramatic cathedral veil or keep it as is and compliment the gown with dainty jewelry or a headpiece."- Katie
"The off the shoulder sleeve of this ball gown is GREAT for girls who want sleeves— and also think they have ‘broad shoulders’ because it ‘cuts the plain’ at the ball joint while also keeping the sexiest part of the shoulder into the collar bone"-Summer
"I cannot say enough about this beaded and dramatic, mermaid style gown. Why I fell in love with this one? I personally love a gown that hugs the curves and has super feminine details. The train is SO delicate and is the perfect length. Lastly, that plunging neckline just makes this the perfect formal choice for our brides who are all about the details"- Alissa
"I love this one because of the flowy overlay with the beautiful appliqués and the fitted underskirt . Put it together with the beautiful bodice, delicate lace appliqués and the dainty straps- it is such a romantic gown!"- Maryann
"This dress gives me boho-bride feels, imagining the bride walking in a meadow with an eclectic bouquet and all the elements of nature as her ceremony backdrop. The mermaid fit and all over lace is stunning and it's perfectly complimented with the most subtle beading. Can't get enough!"- Katie
"I love the soft flow of the skirt which has both the tulle overlay and the sparkle net underlay which has a delicate, embroidered lace scattered throughout . The gown has a soft flow. It is both romantic and delicate. Perfect for a spring or summer wedding."- Maryann
"This one is my ALL TIME fav right now: so romantic. This has seed beaded lace appliqués over sparkle tulle and satin— with tiny beaded straps and beaded belt— and don’t forget the buttons on the back with the ‘drop V’ at the back waistline and the scallop hem all around! From sheath to a fit & flare skirt…. Epitome of class and style!"- Summer
" I LOVE the 3D lace of this gown with the two silhouettes in one skirt: jersey underneath will hug more closely while the over tulle adds the romantic A-line shape."- Summer
"The drama in this gown is incredible. From the gorgeous cinched waistline and beautiful pleating to that dramatic leg slit, we are obsessed! Favorite part of this gown? It can be ordered in black!"- Summer and Alissa (and pretty much our whole Blush Bridal team!)
"I love the dreaminess of this gown. With the layers upon layers of tulle in the skirt, a bride will feel like she's floating down the aisle and later on the dance floor! It reminds me of something taken out of a fairytale-with that gorgeous, structured bodice and the exposed boning..I'm someone who loves details so this dress checks all the boxes for me."- Katie
