So we try not to play favorites here at Dress Gallery but man, did our entire staff fall in love with Blair and Easton. They are a couple that you can tell just sincerely loves each other. They're always playful, giggly, and exuberant when they're around each other, which made every interaction with them an enjoyable one. They got married on August 31st, 2019 at Noah's Event Venue in Wichita, KS! Blair is truly the ultimate fairytale bride; her dream was the type of whimsical, airy romance that love stories are based off of. We were so happy to help her vision come to life with the perfect Morilee gown and complimenting bridesmaids dresses! Blair planned almost her entire wedding herself, specifically avoiding websites like Pinterest to make sure that her vision stayed authentic and true to what SHE wanted. (What great advice, Blair!) Instead of feeling like her wedding was constantly comparing to others, she felt like she could plan the wedding she wanted without any pressure. A good wedding planning book kept her on schedule, but otherwise let her imagination run wild when it came to the details of her big day. She knew she wanted a light color palette (featuring lilac, silver, and ivory), which fit perfectly with the gorgeous, sunny summer weather! Can we talk about Blair's GORGEOUS Morilee bridal gown?! Blair popped in shortly after we got this beauty and she absolutely turned heads in this stunning high neck, fit-and-flare gown. The sexy yet supportive back cut outs keep the look modern and trendy, while also complimenting the silhouette with romantic and timeless lace appliques. Combined with crystal & white beading (to shimmer, not bedazzle!), this dress is perfect for any bride who wants to have a sophisticated yet sexy look on their wedding day. NO WONDER Easton had tears in his eyes seeing her for the first time! See below for proof: Blair said the above moment, their first look, was her favorite of the day. "The first moment when we saw each other was breathtaking," she said. "I replay it in my head over and over. Just being able to kiss and hold each other for a few minutes before the big moment really helped ease my nerves and was so comforting." HOW CUTE ARE THEY?! Ahem, moving on... We were so lucky that Blair trusted us with her bridesmaids dresses as well. We knew she wanted a light, airy color of purple, so choosing the correct shade was imperative for the big day. The girls ended up choosing between two designers - Morilee, like her wedding gown, or Bill Levkoff - and allowed the multiple hues of purple to compliment but not clash with each other. We were so excited she had such an open wedding vision and let us play with different designers & colors to complete her look! Her mix-and-match bridesmaids dresses were absolutely perfect; their chic, simplistic chiffon dresses were the perfect compliment to Blair's romantic and lacy gown. Blair and her girls did a great job of picking complimenting styles, while also allowing the focus to be on Blair! When it came to picking her gown, Blair had a totally different vision in her head when she walked into Dress Gallery. "My dress wasn't like anything I pictured in my head, but it's honestly because I didn't believe such a beautiful dress could exist. With the beading and the stretchy liner, it was literally the perfect dress," she said. Uh, we second that! Even though you can't see it, Blair's dress features a stretchy, charmeuse liner, which is the perfect added feature for a long, whirlwind day in it. "Dress Gallery was the only place I went to and my dress was the second dress I tried on. I tried on one more just to make sure, but I was already sold," Blair said. Her consultant, Katie, just knew this brand new Morilee gown would be a great contender for her - and we'd only had it a short while before Blair was the first girl to say "Yes!" to this dress. "The consultants did the best job of finding dresses not only for my bridesmaids, but for me, too!" Blair said. "I just showed her a couple of inspiration photos and she nailed it!" It's so easy for us to style groups like Blair's - bring in some inspiration, have an open mind, and we'll be able to create your wedding vision no problem! First and foremost, THANK YOU to Chris Cerna Photography for these gorgeous photos - we are STILL swooning over these! Secondly, thank you to the Fry's for being such a bright and happy couple - we are honored to have been a part of your wedding day. In love with Blair's bridal look? Tell us on Facebook!
