Meet Our Bride: Kyle


I had a wonderful experience shopping for my wedding dress at Madeleine’s Daughter! The selection of gowns was impressive and the service was exceptional.  My consultant was thoughtful, patient, and funny.  She did an amazing job finding a dress that truly captured me and everything I was looking for.  My dress was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.  Our guests raved about it.  I felt stunning, as every bride should, on my wedding day!  I highly recommend Madeleine's Daughter!  Thank you, thank you!

Meet Our Bride: Kimberly

My experience at Madeleine's Daughter was top-notch. I walked in, like most brides, with a binder full of the dresses I thought I wanted. Sadie brought in a few that matched that style. I tried them on and thought they were pretty but I was waiting for that “wow” moment. Sadie asked if she could humor me with a few that she thought would look good on me. The first one I tried on brought tears to my eyes. It felt like the dress was made for me. I tried on a few more, mostly because I never thought choosing a wedding gown would be that easy. She noticed that when I had that first dress on my whole demeanor changed; I was beaming. And choosing my gown really was that easy.



 
My wonderful experience didn't stop there. Pronovias gowns are made for incredibly tall women and I'm 5 feet tall! The length was only one of the many alterations that needed to be done. My seamstress, Cheryl, was a godsend! She did an exquisite job with all of the alterations and she was just so incredibly nice! I felt like a life-long friend was putting the finishing touches on my gown! My Mom wanted to surprise me by having Cheryl sew a piece of my childhood “blankie” into the lining of the gown. Cheryl stitched it in with a heart, and above that embroidered the initials of my maiden name in light blue. I hope she knows how special that was for me and how much I really appreciate her amazing attention to detail.

Meet Our Bride: Jovie

I had been referred to Madeleine's Daughter by two brides, so I made the two hour trip from Massachusetts with my bridesmaids by my side. The consultant was very helpful, picking out dresses to my style preference and staying within my budget. I tried on 6 dresses in total before finding my dress: a fit-and-flare style of lace over taffeta from Essence of Australia. The dress was at the shop during a trunk show so I loved that not many people had seen this dress before! Following my appointment, my bridesmaids found beautiful coral colored chiffon dresses from Jasmine Bridal. All the dresses made for an stunning wedding on the beach at sunset in Cancun, Mexico surrounded by friends and family. It was simply perfect!

Meet Our Bride: Jill


My wedding planning experience first felt real for me when I came to Madeleine's Daughter to look for my wedding dress. Many different people told me this was the only place to go for the dress and they were absolutely right! My consultant was patient and intuitive. She made the whole experience almost feel effortless. I also got my alternations done here and my seamstress was amazing! She took extra steps to make the dress fit me perfectly. She saw things even I didn't! My wedding day was made all the more special thanks to everyone at Madeleine's Daughter!

LWD: The "Little White Dress"

Coco Chanel may have made the "Little Black Dress" an icon in women's fashion, but for brides, it's the "Little White Dress" that's key. Obviously, it's traditional to wear a white or ivory gown on your wedding day, but what about all the other wedding-related events you have leading up to the big day?

We've already written on here about the Watters Encore Collection as well as some other little white dresses that we carry in our store, but it's becoming such a huge part of our in-store collection that we thought we'd write another post about it. This time, we've styled a couple of our dresses for different bridal events!

First up, we decided to create an informal bridal look:

Our bridal stylist Olivia looks so sweet in this dress by Watters called "Spruce." We're obsessed with the illusion back and all those pearl buttons!
 
 
We styled her in a birdcage veil, sparkly bracelet and earrings and simple ivory peep-toe pumps. I can picture her at a courthouse ceremony, or an intimate backyard wedding, can't you?
 
For our next look, we chose another brand new dress by Watters called "Alder":
 
 
We pictured Olivia wearing this to her rehearsal dinner, so we kept it bridal, but not over-the-top. The accessories were all composed of gorgeous pearls- from the simple drop earrings and necklace to the pearl-encrusted clutch.
 
Finally, we put together an elegant bridal shower look using yet another of the Encore dresses from Watters. This one is called "Hawthorne" and we think it is so sophisticated and perfect for any number of wedding-related events:
 
 
See what I mean? Isn't this dress just elegant and sophisticated? We're obsessed! It's so stunning that we felt it didn't really need much in terms of accessories. We kept simple pearl drop earrings and the same ivory peep-toe pumps for a classic look from head to toe.
 
We had a blast putting these wedding-event looks together today, but they are only a small sampling of the little white dresses we have in stock right now. No matter what neckline, silhouette or fabric you're looking for, we can practically guarantee there will be something here for you.
 
Call us today to schedule an appointment or go to our website and make an appointment request online- finding your LWD can be as fun and exciting as finding your bridal gown!
