Our Brilliant Bride Malia | Brilliant Bridal Denver

Brilliant Bridal Denver

It's not often we get to share a real Brilliant Bridal wedding from the East Coast, so we were thrilled when photographer Laura of Laura's Focus Photography shared these images of our Brilliant Bride Malia! Malia and Clay had the sweetest wedding at The Tidewater Inn in Easton, Maryland in early August.  Everything was stunning and amazingly planned in only 3 months! We absolutely love Malia and Clay's love story, these two met through a Craigslist ad while Malia was looking for a roommate. From the first meeting these two because the best of friends and even survived a long distance relationship with Clay traveling around with the Air Force.

Their wedding day was classic, crisp and clean featuring lots of lush greenery and bright white florals.  Malia glowed in her lace + tulle James Clifford bridal gown she found at our Denver bridal store.  And may we note again, she said yes to the dress within three months of her wedding date!

Congrats to Malia + Clay, we wish you many happy years of marriage!

2016 Bridal Dress Trends

Our Brilliant Bridal stylists have seen trends come and go over the years, but 2016 has to be our favorite year yet! Brides are choosing to stray away from the traditional white strapless gown - which we LOVE! Don't get us wrong, we love a traditional gown, but our ultimate goal is to get a bride into a gown that matches her personality. We want her to slip into her dress and for her bridal entourage to say 'that dress is so YOU!'. 

Here's a few of our favorite 2016 Bridal Trends that we've seen. If this year is any indicator of what 2017 is going to be like, we can't wait to see what our designers have up their sleeves! 

Off The Shoulder Gowns 

Not only are off the shoulder tops back in fashion, but they're taking over the bridal world! An off the shoulder gown keeps things classy yet a little bit sexy! Not only do we adore this sassy style, but it is also a practical style for a bride who's going to be dancing all night long. Can you imagine tugging up your strapless dress all night long? We've seen it all too often! Choose an off the shoulder gown and you'll be able to spend more time sipping champagne and getting jiggy on the dance floor ;) 

This Watters Gown can be found at our East Valley Location for only Our Price $907.00 (Retail price $1,29600). A big thank you to April Maura Photography for snapping these gorgeous photos!  

 

High Neck Lines

This 90's trend is back! Instead of plunging necklines, we're seeing more modern & modest high neck styles. A glamorous updo is the right way to go when rocking a high neckline to show off all of the gorgeous detail!

Check out this gorgeous David Tutera Gown that you can find at our East Valley Location for only $1,049 (Retail Price $1,400). 

This La Sposa Gown is available at our East Valley Location for only $3,158 (Retail $4,512) 

Blush Wedding Gowns 

Who says you have to wear white or ivory on your big day? We get SO excited when a bride walks in to her consultation and says "I really want to wear a blush gown".  Those words are music to our ears! Again, we love a traditional gown but LOVE when our brides step outside the traditional bridal box. How fun are these gorgeous blush gowns? 

This blush Pronovias gown has pockets. Yes, POCKETS. Need we say more? It can be found at our East Valley Location for $1,418 (Retail $2025) 

This WToo Gown can be found at our Brilliant Bridal Denver Location for only $1,050 (Retail $1,500)

Illusion &  Lace Sleeves

Lastly, we're seeing the lace sleeve trend come back into style! You may have noticed that bridal trends from the 70s, 80s and 90s are coming back into style, yet they have their own modern twist! A lace sleeve is perfect for a winter wedding. You can even layer up with a cute faux fur cape for your bridal portraits! 

This Casablanca gown can be purchased at our Brilliant Bridal Denver Location for only $1,260 (Retail $1,800) 

We're obsessed with the sleeve detail of this Pronovias gown that can be found at our Brilliant Bridal Denver Location. 

We'd love to shop with you to help you find the dress of your dreams! Click here to learn more about our locations in Phoenix, Mesa, Las Vegas, Denver & Los Angeles.

Our Brilliant Bride Taise | Brilliant Bridal Denver

File Jul 17, 2 41 00 PM.jpeg

Let's pretend it's Throwback Thursday.  Remember that song "Ironic" by Alanis Morisette? "It's like raaaaaaaaaain on your wedding day".  Well that was Taise + Daniels wedding.  Except snow.  Epic snow.  And a host of other things that didn't go as planned, but couldn't squash this couple's love and happiness.  This couple is such a good example that weddings aren't about the Jimmy Choo's (although beautiful) but about family, love and a commitment to forever.

Taise found her gown at Brilliant Bridal Denver!  She wore a classic satin mermaid gown from Dessy Bridal that she paired with a two layer blusher veil and that stunning faux fur wrap!

All of our congrats to Taise + Daniel and many thanks to their photographer Chris Loring for sharing these stunning photos!  Read more about Taise + Daniel's story on his blog.
