What's in the Window

We are known to be a store with a flair for fashion. Brides who choose their gown with us always have that something special that seems to distinguish them from the rest. It is not easy to capture one’s own style. It is a confidence that comes from within. We asked one of our dear brides how she came to choose her “unforgettable” bridal style.

Warren Barrón Bridal:  Did you have a particular style of gown in mind when you set out to find “the dress”?

Brandy:  Absolutely!!  Before ever embarking on the journey to select my wedding dress, I knew that I wanted a ballgown!  In the beginning, I was convinced I wanted an elaborate tulle ballgown but after trying on several, I knew that something was missing.  It was at Warren Barron, just before stepping into the dressing room, that my mom held up one more gown and strongly suggested I try it on.  Unconvinced, I agreed to try it on just for her and it ended up being the perfect dress!  That day I knew that I would walk down the aisle in the “Katherine” gown by Vera Wang.  While the dress was true to the ballgown style, it was very different from all the other styles I had sampled.  The “Katherine” gown is truly one of a kind!

WBB: What made you decide on your gown?

Brandy:  From the moment I stepped into the gown, I knew it was the perfect dress for me!  Never did I hesitate or have to consider how I felt about it.  I’ll never forget that special moment in the fitting room when I turned to face the mirror and saw myself standing in my wedding gown!! Before the gown was even zipped, I knew I had found the one and I couldn’t wait to walk out and show my mom!  I immediately fell in love the style of the “Katherine” ballgown and the complete grandeur of the fit.  The billowing layers and horsehair trim made this gown both artistic yet timeless.  I had never seen anything like it and I knew it would fit our castle theme wedding perfectly.

WBB: How did your Hairstyle and Make up play into your bridal vision?

Brandy:  When I arrived in Switzerland, I met and worked with my French stylist to plan my wedding day look. He took one look at my wedding dress in our consult appointment and knew exactly what I was wanting!  On the day of my wedding, he styled my hair in long loose curls and my makeup palette was a combination of shimmery golds, rose pinks, and natural glows.  My final wedding day look was the perfect representation of our fairytale wedding!

WBB: We say that the gown is the centerpiece for the wedding. Choose one word to describe the feeling or theme of your wedding. How did the gown play into it? What was your inspiration?

Brandy:  Timeless!!  Since we were having a castle wedding, I knew my gown had to perfectly fit the romantic medieval atmosphere.  My inspiration was classic winter and complete splendor in our fanciful black tie setting.  The architectural flow of my ballgown was picture perfect in our intimate Christ centered castle setting!

WBB: How does your wedding gown relate to your personal style?

Brandy:  I really value and appreciate classic fashion that isn’t afraid to make a statement!  Having a gown that was inventive, fun, and full of style fit me perfectly.

WBB: What tips do you have for new brides picking out their wedding dress?

Brandy:  My best advice to brides is to really take your time picking out your gown and wait for that one unforgettable moment when you know you have stepped into your perfect wedding dress!  It’s easy to get distracted with the thrill of dress shopping but be patient and pick the dress that makes you feel like the beautiful bride that you are!  Be true to your vision but don’t hesitate to try on a few gowns out of your comfort zone!

Thank you Warren Barron for making my wedding dress shopping an experience I will cherish forever!  Working with your salon staff was a joy and I always knew that my feelings were taken to heart.  Thanks to your attention and professionalism, you have made this special season in my life completely “unforgettable.”  From the first phone call to the final appointment to pick up my dress, you were all overly accommodating and welcoming.  Working with you ladies has been a dream come true!  An extra special “thank you” for the masterful packaging preparation of my gown for our flight and travel.  We arrived to Switzerland with my gown in perfect condition!  A special thank you to Catherine for all her help!!  You ladies are wonderful!!!

“I always knew I wanted a simple dress with an open back, however I could not imagine finding such an incredible dress.  It exceeded my expectations.”  The bride chose a gown by Monique Lhuillier.  “At Warren Barrón Bridal, Cecilia showed me many nice gowns, but as soon as she picked mine, I knew it was the one!”

So its been a few weeks and we have had a chance to reflect on what we saw during Market this past April.  It is so exciting to see all of the new looks.  Strapless is still strong, but sleeves,  “V” Necks, and plunging backs are definitely taking over the runways.

ML paparazi

Monique Lhuillier keeps with her romantic feminine style in this draped strapless gown with organza floral skirt.

ML blush Satin

Monique Lhuillier does it again with this satin gown with tulle illusion showcasing an essence of color.

AS ruffleback

Austin Scarlett adorned this strapless gown with a train trimmed with horsehair and tulle.

 

VW crepe back

Vera Wang does strapless sexy and sleek in this simple but dramatic crepe gown.

Strapless has been strong for many years, but it is so refreshing to see that all designers are pushing new necklines.  We saw the “V” Neckline with all designers.  From Sleek to soft and romantic.

CH drapedV

Carolina Herrera did this draped “V” Neck with a very full tulle skirt.  It is soft but so striking.

LR print

Lela Rose kept her “V” Neck sleek, but made it so romantic by using beautiful fabric in a blush floral pattern.

VWCrissCrosslace

Vera Wang took a softer approach to this neckline.  Draped in English Net and trimmed in Chantilly lace gives this gown a more ethereal look.

RKLace ball

We are introducing Romona Keveza this season to our collection, and she showed  the “V” neckline  in this amazing luxurious beaded lace ball gown.  It is a show stopper for sure!

Sleeves have slowly made their way into the bridal fashion again, but are very strong this new season.  I think they will only get more popular with time.

ML runway beaded

Monique Lhuillier showed a short sleeve beaded jacket over a strapless gown.  A bride can get the best of both worlds with this look.

CH off shoulder

There is no doubt that this beautiful gown is Carolina Herrera, this is a classic made modern.

The last trend we saw that really made an impact was the low interesting backs.  Every designer did it in their own way.

VW English Net Back

This is a “Wow” for the bride of now.  The groom would not be disappointed with this gown that is for sure!

RKhalter

Sophisticated is the only way to describe this Romona Keveza gown.  The Halter neckline and low back make the simple gown “unforgettable”.

CH V emb

Carolina Herrera  added a delicate organza ribbon  to the back neckline of this gown.  It is a very small detail, that really completes this gown.

EF blush

 Elizabeth Fillmore showed off her signature look in this fabulous gown.

LR back emb

Lela Rose also showed off a signature look.  She does the low back with a unique embroidered motif.

 

We just can’t wait to have them in our store.  They are little pieces of art that will reflect each bride in their own special way.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our fabulous bride, Erin, recently shared her bridal portraits with us and they were too incredible not to pass along to everyone! Erin’s inspiration came from the 1920′s, and her Elizabeth Fillmore gown could not be more perfect. Along with her amazing hair and makeup, the venue was an excellent choice to fit the art deco feel Erin wanted to capture.

We love the black and white photos, they look like shots from a silent film.

The back of her dress is absolutely stunning, the illusion beading and embroidery adds to capture the feeling of the era.

The cigar and whiskey pictures are some of our favorites, they perfectly capture Erin’s beauty and truly transport you back in time.
