Here Comes the Bride: Finding the Perfect Dress

Here Comes the Bride: Finding the Perfect Dress

Written by: Jenny

I'll never forget the day I went shopping for my wedding dress. It was the most surreal experience! All of the sudden, it was about ME. I was the bride. It was my day. I had been on the bridesmaid side of things a bunch of times -- and that was fun. But, being the actual bride? Oh, that was incredibly cool! I felt so special!

In my mind, I always pictured myself wearing a very simple, form fitted dress. My mother-in-law pulled a VERY 'princess-y' dress and suggested I try it on. I remember silently thinking... sure, I'll put it on for ya... but this style of dress isn't happening for me. Not feelin' it.

And then...

I put that thing on and felt like I stepped directly out of a Disney movie. THAT was THE dress. I knew instantly. I believe every bride should have that magical experience. And every bride CAN at Altar Bridal. Exceptional service. Unforgettable experience.

During the majority of April, they'll have racks of Trunk Show dresses for brides to choose from! So, it's a GREAT time to schedule an appointment at Altar. 

What exactly is a Trunk Show? A special event where they showcase a designer's newest collection of gowns. Normally, they only carry a selection of gowns from each of their designer's collections. A Trunk Show allows brides the opportunity to see and try on gowns that would not ordinarily be at the store. Also, incentives -- example 10% off new orders placed with the featured designer. 

Astrid & Mercedes: March 31st - April 8th

Carefree and fashion-forward, the Astrid & Mercedes line is inspired by Lea-Ann’s plucky, free-spirited nieces. Sewn by hand of silks and laces, the collection is patterned, cut and draped in their Toronto atelier. A distinctive blend of something old and something new, these gowns are for women who plan to strut their vibrant selves down the aisle and create their own happily ever after.

Anna Campbell: April 21st + 22nd

From humble beginnings in Melbourne, Australia a natural love for design, romance and all things that sparkle inspired the dream that is Anna Campbell. A range of opulently hand-beaded headpieces and accessories soon expanded into a collection of hand embellished lace gowns, and from here the Anna Campbell story truly began.

Inspired by the opulence of bygone times, yet influenced by the relaxed elegance of modern weddings, Anna Campbell’s aim is to create breathtakingly beautiful dresses that enhance rather than define a bride’s natural beauty.

Anna Campbell is proud that all dresses continue to be ethically and expertly constructed using traditional techniques in our Melbourne studio, and intricate, shimmering hand-embellishments are similarly finished in-house.

Altar Bridal is located at 5220 West 116th Place, Leawood, KS 66211. Call 913.451-GOWN.

Congratulations on your engagement and I wish you an absolutely perfect and beautiful wedding day!
