SB Inspiration

We sell some of the most popular and trendy bridesmaid dresses available.  But, I also know that not every bride wants a "bridesmaid dress" for her wedding party.

While perusing one of my personal favorite fashion sites, Ruche, I came across this darling little frock:

I also knew exactly what wedding gown I would pair with this to complete a fabulously unique wedding style; Casablanca 2005, which just happens to be in the store window right now...

The color of the little frock matches the champagne belt and flower edgings on this great gown.  Both styles are so classic and clean, but the details just pop!

September's Bride...a fresh approach to formal.

Trash & Treasure :: Teasers

We told you about our awesome new product, Trash & Treasure.  For just one price, you receive an hour-long "Trash the Dress" photo shoot, all of the edited images on CD, and a professional gown cleaning & preservation AFTER the fun!

This week, we had a fun photo shoot with our team to produce some images that we could use in our Trash & Treasure ad campaign.  However, they are so absolutely gorgeous and fun that I could not resist sharing them on the blog right away!

Wouldn't you love a few photos of you in your special gown like this?

A huge hug & "Thanks" to Bailey, our model; Julie, the stylist; Allison Bower, makeup artist; and the wonderful photographer, Hannah of Simply Eden Photography.

SB Spotlighted!

I was delighted to find our store highlighted by Lakeshore Shoppers on Facebook earlier this week.  This really cool photo was posted along with this review of September's Bride:

Peeking through the 8th Street windows in downtown Holland of September's Bride, you'd never imagine the expansive collection of bridal gowns that await brides-to-be upstairs! I never knew that just up the stairs was a huge bridal boutique with many designers to browse with the help of exceptional associates to help you every step of the way! If you know someone getting married, guide them to shop locally!

New Arrival :: Lucious Layers from Angelina Couture!

This gorgeous silk & lace gown is from the fabulous American design house of Angelina Couture.  No beading or embellishment, just elegant design and the best fabrics.

A true A-line gown, this silhouette flatters any figure.  The neckline is almost straight across, but could be ordered as a more defined sweetheart if desired.  We have paired this gown with the Elizabeth Taylor necklace from MEG Jewelry for the perfect marriage of classic & modern style.  There is just a sweep train on the skirt, so this gown would be at home in the garden or in the chapel.

September's Bride is the only boutique in Michigan to carry this wonderful designer!

This summer's hottest accessory :: Earrings

With the popularity of the one-shoulder neckline and the resurgence of bodice tops and even sleeves (!), fewer brides are opting for necklaces.

However, fabulous earrings are a must for almost every bride.  Earrings focus attention on your face and on your shining eyes.

These wonderful jewels are from MEG Jewelry. The classic styling of natural pearls and Swarovski crystals complement almost any gown, from vintage to modern.
