Wedding Dress of the Day: Hand Draped Tulle Wedding Gown from White by Vera Wang
Tulle Bridal Gown
Today’s wedding dress of the day, is not only a lovely ball gown style wedding dress, it also comes with a story of a good deed. As you may have heard, bridal retailer Alfred Angelo Bridal unexpectedly closed their doors this week, leaving many brides and wedding parties in a terrible predicament because many are still without their dresses. David’s Bridal, however, has stepped up (as have many other local bridal boutiques) by offering assistance to anyone who has a verified purchase with Alfred Angelo, who is now worried about receiving their gowns.

Cute Dresses to Wear to July Weddings + Receptions
The shift from June to July certainly went quickly! If you have back-to-back weekends of wedding invitations for the month of July, this post full of July wedding guest attire ideas is for you! In addition to the running collection of summer wedding guest dresses I list on this shop page, I try to find new dresses each month during the summer wedding season that will suit guests.
For me, dressing for July events are not only about looking good, but also staying cool and comfortable, since many summer weddings take place outside in the sunshine. I also favor more vibrant colors and prints this time of year to mimic the celebratory spirit of summer. Here are my latest picks for what to wear to a July wedding for the 2017 season!

A Sleek Soft Gray Blue Gown for a July Wedding Guest
High-Low dresses for the Mother-of-the-Bride are in for 2017-2018 weddings! The high-low hemline is nothing new, with this cutaway front style being first seen in Victorian times, and coming back into fashion during certain decades of the 20th century. Most of the 2017 versions of the high-low hemlines we’ve been seeing offer a balanced look that offers just a little peek of the ankle and calf, but still keeps the gown at a formal length. These modern classic silhouettes make for a great choice for fashion-forward mothers seeking a gown for their daughter or son’s wedding, especially when done in a beautiful flowing chiffon fabric or in a silk or taffeta ball gown.
Lately we’ve seen so many high-low styles we love, we’ve decided to dedicate a few points to this look, starting off with these choices for mother-of-the-bride dresses. The emerald green style above would be ideal for a fall wedding, but we’ve seen hi-low hems in dresses for all seasons. Here are a few more favorite looks!
Floral, Peach, Blush and Cream Bridesmaid Dresses to Mix and Match
It’s time for another look at a mix-and match bridesmaid dress color scheme in our mix and match series (see our other mismatched bridesmaid ideas here)! Today’s look is perfect for the spring-almost-summer season – it’s a mix of peaches and cream!
This color range of blush, cream, peach, and soft blush and pink florals is a unique way to mix up colors for a spring or summer wedding. Ivory and cream bridesmaid dresses are re-gaining popularity as a bridesmaid dress color, but if you’re not ready for all your bridal party to wear white, mixing a little peach and blush, or some pretty floral print bridesmaid dresses in blush and neutrals, will break up the look! Such a sweet color combo for a garden wedding!Read More
