Hey guys! Here we are again to celebrate another yet gorgeous gown by Casablanca Bridal, style 1975! If you love a classic, romantic, lacy wedding dress gown and some gorgeous real brides, this is the place to be! We're lucky enough to have Casablanca Bridal on our team, hooking us up with pictures of real brides from all over the country showcasing some the wonderful styles we carry in our store. This particular style seems to be pretty dang popular, so I thought it would be fun to put all the pictures together so our readers can see how it looks on all sorts of brides!
Casablanca Bridal has a real knack for creating some of the most romantic, beautiful gowns ever (in my humble opinion ;)) and I don't think I'm the only one who thinks so! Before we delve into the beautiful real brides, let's start with these catalogue photos so you can see every detail up close. Beaded lace appliques accented with Swarovski crystals, pearls, beads, and silver backed sequins make this luxurious satin gown simply breathtaking. The V neckline and plunging V in the back show just the right of skin to stay classy but still look sexy. The pearl encrusted spaghetti straps and flattering fit and flare silhouette top off the lacy perfection that is Style 1975.
A Canadian wedding!!! Love it.

Hey guys! Where are my Downton Abbey fans at? Even if you don't watch the show and just love all things vintage, you'll love what we have for you today on Gateway Bridal Blog! Brace yourself from one of the most gorgeous styled shoots I've had the pleasure of featuring, a Downton Abbey inspired masterpiece featuring our Casablanca Style 2253 "Olive" gown!
For those of you who don't know, Downton Abbey is a TV drama based in the early 1910's following the story of an upper class family. Casablanca Style 2253 would fit right into that time and place, a genius choice for this shoot! With its flowing satin fit and flare sillhouette that hugs all the right places, it's a classic and sophisticated gown that will be sure to turn heads on your big day. Did I mention that's not even the most stunning feature? The cap sleeves are adorned in exquisite hand beading that drapes from the shoulders, and the illusion back is almost entirely encrusted in intricate beadwork. You really need to see it for yourself to understand how stunning this gown is. Luckily, we have some BEAUTIFUL photographs that showcase them beautifully. An amazing team of Utah vendors collaborated to make this Downton Abbey styled shoot a reality, and I think they did a pretty stellar job. Let's have a look!
The pearls and sparkling brooch on this gorgeous gold cake are perfect for the vintage theme of this shoot. Looks pretty delicious too!
THE LIGHTING. Swooooooooon. Couldn't be more perfect.
Cassi looked absolutely stunning and positively glowed. (Getting to do an amazing photoshoot with your hubby? What's not to glow about?)
Thanks for joining us to see this beautiful Downton Abbey inspired shoot. Don't forget to check out all the amazing people involved! See you next time! XO

We have a super special treat to share with you today on Gateway Bridal Blog! We were lucky enough to get our hands on this gorgeous collaboration from some AMAZING vendors to celebrate the Grand Opening of True Gentleman Supply Co. in SLC! They also decided to feature our Allure Style 9458, otherwise known as the Silifiel gown! The result is this classy photo shoot that is so beautiful it hurts a little.
First of all, the venue that was chosen for this classy photo shoot couldn't have been more perfect. The lighting and the mood of Finca give all these images a sultry, dramatic feel. I really really want to eat there now! They apparently have some kick-butt Spanish cuisine, not to mention just LOOK at it! The dark colors and gold accents are AMAZING. The suits from True Gentleman Supply Co. are KILLER, look how dapper these handsome dudes look! Go see them for all your custom tailored bespoke suit needs! The bride's natural beauty was perfectly enhanced by Kai Gundy of The Lash & Beauty Co, just look at those thick lashes! The contrast between the dim, dramatic atmosphere and the burst of pink in the bouquets and boutonniere are possibly my favorite thing about this, courtesy of M+B Events.
Seriously, that bar makes me want to sit down and order something classy, like an old fashioned! I'm not even sure what's in that, but whatever.
Jewelry and accessories from J. Brooks Jewelers. Perfect for a classy photo shoot of this caliber!
Lookin' sharp, boys! Have you ever heard the saying "A well tailored suit is to women what lingerie is to men?" There's some real truth there.
Can we just talk about how beautiful these models are?! I mean holy cow.
Yay! The part where I get to gush about the dress! I think this one speaks for itself, truly. So beautiful, elegant, and sophisticated, but manages to do it without a bunch of fancy bells and whistles. Sometimes less is definitely more! The Allure 9458 is coming soon to our website, but is available in our store right now! We feel so honored that one of our gowns was chosen to be a part of this amazing collab.
Well there you have it! Thank you to all the amazing vendors who came together and created this perfect classy photo shoot for all our viewing pleasure! Swoon.
Today on Gateway Bridal Blog I'm sharing one of my very favorite dresses. If you're a bride looking for a beautiful and unique lace dress, the BL219 is the gown for you! We have a real treat in store for you to showcase this gorgeous dress, so let's get to it!
The BL219 (coming soon to our website, but available in our store) is a masterpiece. If you are at all familiar with the LatterDayBride line we carry in our store, you may have seen a modest gown called the "Claralise". The dress I'm showing you today is the spaghetti strap version of that unique lace dress, as you can see if you click here, the skirts are identical between the two. What makes this unique lace dress so, well... unique, is the stunning skirt. It is made of beautiful, delicate, cascading layers of tulle adorned with beautiful floral appliques. I don't think you could find a flirtier or more feminine gown. The wonderful and talented Hannah Judd recently did a styled "Black Tie" shoot featuring this unique lace dress, and knocked it out of the park. We are sooooo excited to show you just how beautiful this gown is! It looks beautiful in the stock photos, of course, but seeing it on a real bride in different light and at different angles really shows you every beautiful detail of this flirty dress. You're sure to be unforgettable and demand the spotlight on your big day in this baby. So... without further ado, let's check out these lovely images! Enjoy! XO
