Gift Ideas for the Bride

My wonderful husband, Jeff, proposed to me on November 29, 1991. It was the day after Thanksgiving and we had so much fun sharing the news with our families and friends that weekend.

A month later, it was Christmas; and I was blessed to receive many gifts that I was able to use in our upcoming wedding.

If you have a bride in your life who is planning a wedding in 2009; here are some gift ideas that I know she would appreciate:

1. Garter Set - splurge on a 100% silk garter for her that she would never buy for herself. We have styles to match every bride's fashion sense. ($12-$40)

2. Jewelry - she would love to open an heirloom-quality piece of jewelry on Christmas morning! Necklaces, bracelets, earrings; all made with genuine swarovski crystals and fresh-water pearls. ($30-$200)

3. Hankies - Our hankies are beautifully packaged and so unique! Embroidered with "Bride"; "Mother"; "Grandma"; and "Sister"; there is something for everyone. These would be just beautiful peeking out of the top of a stocking! ($12)

4. Wedding Gown Preservation - Perhaps you know someone who was recently married. Delight her with the gift to last a lifetime. Have her gown cleaned and preserved by Great Lakes Wedding Gown Specialists for her. ($150-$200)

At September's Bride, we know brides! Come in and speak with a consultant who will help you choose the perfect Christmas gift for any bride that you know!

Introducing "Melissa" by Lila Couture

The gown in the middle of this display is "Melissa"; a new gown from
the 2009 collection of Lila Couture. This gown was introduced at the New York Bridal Market in October, and then came directly to September's Bride.
If you're looking for a gown that is original and new (no one else has it); be sure to consider this beauty.
Melissa is made of silk taffeta with horizontal pleats on the bodice; a V-shaped cut-out at the top, and a beautiful mermaid silhouette. There are two rows of beading at the bottom of the skirt. The top has an optional bow (not shown); and the gown is also available in a petite cut; good for us shorter girls! As with all of Lila's gowns, Melissa is also available in a high-quality polyester taffetta if you choose.
We have put this with a few of our new shorter veils from Jennifer Leigh and absolutely love the look. Of course, the drama of a cathedral length veil would be beautiful, too!

Sorry - unavoidable absence!

I promised my blog readers some photos of our new Lila Couture gowns earlier this week.

Unfortunately, I was called out of town for the funeral of my husband's grandmother. I will try to get those photos to you in the next few days.

Thanks for your patience. Of course, you will be best served by visiting September's Bride and seeing the gowns (or trying them on) in person!

SB Bride :: Heather

Heather had a beautiful wedding at the Van Andel Museum Center. You can see a preview of her pics by the fabulous Amy Carroll at Amy's blog. I absolutely loved their cake, too!

Heather wore a silk satin gown with pickups all over the skirt. No "bling"; but with silk, the fabric speaks for itself! Very elegant and classic.

This week, I received two BRAND NEW gowns from Lila Couture's 2009 collection! We plan on doing a mini photo-shoot on Monday so that I can post some photos for you. However, the gowns are in the windows at September's Bride so you can come see them in person anytime.

Here is the exciting of the gowns that we received is named "Rachel"; after my very own assistant! The gown is fabulous; reminiscent of my own mother's gown from 1970 (in a good way) and has a few characteristics borrowed from Rachel's own gown that she wore this past September.

Rumor has it that there is a "Tami" gown in the 2009 Collection, but I haven't seen it yet. How cool, to have a wedding gown named after you!
