Fall 2012...feminine and frothy

Hello! It has been quite a while since I was last on here, but things have been busy here at The Bride's Room! First of all, let me say congratulations to all of our new brides that have found their dream dresses during September and October! You are all going to be lovely on your big day. And please, send me pictures so I can blog about you!

With that being said, let's dive right into the amazingness that was market. As you all know, New York market is the biggest stage for bridal collection debuts, and the designers did not disappoint. In fact, they completely wowed me! Everywhere I looked, I found wonderful creations that I wanted to buy for the store. But, I showed (just a little) self restraint and picked out the absolute best of the best!

The overall look for this season was a frothy, ethereal feel with lots and lots of lace. From tulle to silk chiffon and the lights silks and satins you can imagine, the gowns this season were feminine and elegant with just a hit of modernity.

Here are some of the highlights from the upcoming season...

Mark your calendars for the beginning of January, because that is when we will start receiving the gowns that we ordered at market...and trust me you don't want to miss these...

Much love!

Fall into these fabulous frocks!

Hello friends! I am back from my summer break and ready to rock fall! Quite a lot has been going on here at The Bride's Room! We had a huge blowout sale during August, and had an amazing response from the most darling brides. We were thrilled to be able to dress over 20 brides for their weddings! It is always so exciting to watch a new bride put on a gown, look in the mirror, and know that that is HER gown. Congratulations to all of the sweet girls that found the dress of her dreams over the summer.

Now, on to all of the changes going on at The Bride's Room. As some of you may or may not have heard, Priscilla of Boston has closed after 65 years in business. It is so sad to see this iconic line fold, but in this economy, things like that are happening all the time. As a result of POB closing, we have lost Jewel as on of our lines. But, fear not, because we have found a fabulous replacement collection! We have added Modern Trousseau to our collection, and it has completed our selection perfectly!

I have written about Modern Trousseau before, but I want to reiterate how gorgeous the collection truly is. These gown will please the classic bride that is looking for a feminine esthetic with subtle details to add to the overall effect. Modern Trousseau is also know for its' add-ons. Their jeweled belts are out of this world and change the entire feel of the gown. Also, and I am so excited about these additions, Modern Trousseau does fabulous Fox wraps and jackets! These are both to die for and perfect for a winter bride that is searching for that extra bit of wow!

Take a look at a few of our newest arrivals from Modern Trousseau!





As you can see, these gowns are gorgeous, traditional gowns that every bride dreams about wearing! Be the first person to fall in love with these gowns - book your appointment today!

Much love!

Cheers to Leanne and West! June 16, 2012

Happy Wednesday! We had a very exciting weekend - my brother West proposed to his girlfriend Leanne on Saturday night! We couldn't be happier for them! Read on to see how West gave Leanne the surprise of her life!

In true Gotcher fashion, West wanted to plan some sort of out of this world surprise engagement for Leanne - we grew up with Dad always doing awesome surprise things for Mom. So, he decided to throw an amazing engagement party for Leanne on Saturday July 16 for friends and family at one of their favorite restaurants in Houston, El-Real. For the actual proposal, he had a beautiful table set up on the landing of the stairs that lead to the party room at the Restaurant. On the table were flowers and a gorgeous picture frame that read:

What Leanne didn't know until that night is that West and her mother had booked the church, the country club, and the photographer before the engagement ever happened so she would get to fulfill her dream of being a June bride!

With the restaurant cheering West on, he got down on one knee and asked Leanne to be his wife. After she (or course!!) said yes, they came up to the party room to celebrate with all of their closest friends and family!

Take a look at a few of the pictures from the evening:

The proposal!
The beautiful couple - and I love how Leanne's hands are over her heart! So sweet!
So excited!
The two families!
The Gotcher and Reeves siblings!

Maid of Honor, Bride, and Matron of Honor - and the Tiger Veil!

 As you can see, it was a fabulous party in honor of an amazing couple! I wish you both the absolute best things and am so excited to have a new sister!!

As always, much love

Melissa and Wynn Tucker, February 19, 2011

When Melissa Mahaffey and Wynn Tucker married, they celebrated their vows in true Ft. Worth style! The ceremony took place at Robert Carr Chapel on TCU's campus. It has a subtle, traditional elegance which was the perfect backdrop for this winter affair. The bride was radiant as she was led down the center aisle by her father. With an added touch of whimsy in the bridesmaids' dresses, Melissa's vision came to life! After a perfect ceremony, the celebration continued at Colonial Country Club. The guests were greeted by spectacular flower arrangements of all shapes and sizes to complement the rest of the decor. The guests were entertained by an amazing band and danced the night away! Congratulations, Melissa and Wynn!

I hope that you loved peeking inside Melissa and Wynn's wedding! Best of luck to this sweet couple!

Much love...
