Ready for a feast for your eyes? We are so excited to share some of the images from our 2017-2018 Bridal and Prom collections from this year's Eye Candy shoot!
So first, the location. When you think elegance and class, one place in particular in downtown Salt Lake City may come to mind. The Grand America Hotel with it's amazing architecture and beautiful courtyards and gardens was the perfect spot for our Eye Candy shoot this year. As always, the incredible Rebecca Westover created art with her camera and captured our new collection beautifully.
We are so excited to share a few shots of our new Bridal Collection with you!
First, Casablanca Style BL219. This darling wedding dress features a soft strap, lovely floral lace, horsehair detail on the skirt, and a sweet A-line shape.
Gown available in light champagne/candlelight/ivory, white/white, or ivory/ivory.
And how beautiful is this cold shoulder style ballgown, new for this year! This one will be available early January. along with these gorgeous 2-piece sleeveless sparkly bridesmaid dresses.
Are you in love with ruffles and blush? This gorgeous strappy ballgown may be made for you. In stores and online in January 2018.

Illusion lace is one of the most magical and beautiful features a gown can have, in my humble opinion. Today on Gateway Bridal Blog we're featuring a gorgeous dress that has an illusion neckline and sleeves, the BL213! This gorgeous bride, Morgan, is the perfect gal to show off this dress in all its glory!
Morgan is a classic beauty with delicate, feminine features. Her gorgeous brown hair was swept into a half-back twist and completed with soft, cascading curls. A subtle smoky eye and rosy lip highlighted her features perfectly and in the end she looked like an absolute dream. The final touch, of course, was the gorgeous illusion neckline gown complete with illusion sleeves and an AMAZING plunging v-back. She and her girls got ready in the bride's room donning matching silk kimonos and it looks like they had a blast in the meantime! The wedding was perfect, complete with dad walking her down the aisle, the happy couple sharing a ton of kisses, and smashing cake into each other's faces. There was dancing and laughter and love. The magical evening was wrapped up beautifully with a sparkler sendoff!
Casablanca Style BL213, the "Cherish" gown, is unforgettable. It's perfect for the bride who wants a classic look with a dramatic twist. The tulle skirt is so fluffy and fun, and the refines velvet sash at the natural waist is SUPER flattering. Just look at the illusion neckline on that baby! I'm telling you, it doesn't get much better than this! And how perfectly twirlable is that skirt?! (Spellcheck seems to think "twirlable" isn't a word, but I strongly disagree!)
Oh man. I am such a sucker for twinkle lights!!!
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.
