Bluethread Bridal

Giving brides the royal treatment!

Every bride should feel like a princess on her wedding day; that goes without saying. It’s your time to be the belle of the ball and the center of attention. You can eat what you like, drink what you like, talk to whom you like and (equally important) not talk to whom you like. It’s all about you! That princess-like feeling doesn’t have to be limited to just your wedding day, though. Why not start a little early, like with your bridal gown shopping! An easy way to pop some princess into your shopping is by stopping at Flair (duh) and getting acquainted with Bluethread Bridal. This amazing designer gives brides the royal treatment by helping them create their own unique, custom designed wedding gown. Now if that doesn’t scream “princess” then I don’t know what does! Pick your fabric, neckline, skirt style; the list goes on and on! Plus, get your gown in your exact size, made to your exact measurements. Feeling like Duchess Kate yet? We thought so! Of course, they also have some pretty stunning pre-designed gowns to choose from if you prefer. Check some of them out below to get familiar with Bluethread’s fabrics and aesthetic, and then give us a ring to stop by and get started on your custom creation!

Unique Wedding Gowns

Easy, elegant ways to step outside of the box!

We’ve been back from Spring bridal market for almost a week now but we’re still in total swoon mode over all of the stunning styles that we saw there! We pinch ourselves every time market rolls around; we can’t believe it’s our job to watch fashion shows and buy pretty, new dresses for the showroom. It’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it 🙂 One thing we always notice at market is how bridal gowns are constantly evolving. There are so many options out there; wedding gowns can no longer be defined as just “a white dress.” For brides looking to break the mold, these days there are tons of gorgeous ways to step outside the box and wear something unique:

1) Embrace the rainbow! White can be tough color to wear, and if you’re not comfortable in it, don’t feel like you have to wear it. If an alternatively hued dress just feels more “you”, go for it! Check out these wedding dresses with color – still elegant and oh so bridal!

Blush pink is an easy transition for the bride looking for a little color! L to R: Tara Keely style 2510, the Opal gown by Blush by Hayley Paige and Theia's petal gown

2) Think short! While the majority of wedding gowns are still floor length, every year we see more and more styles with higher hems. A shorter dress will be lightweight, comfortable and easy to dance in, and most of them are formal enough to still feel bridal. If you still want the long look for your ceremony, though, consider adding a removable skirt over your short dress, and get the best of both worlds!

Amy Kuschel sure knows how to make a pretty little white dress! Her Jackie Lady Stardust (left) and Mimosa (right) dresses are just stunning! Want to add some length? Jenny Yoo's London skirt is perfection!

3) Change up the fabric! Lace still reigns supreme in the bridal world (for good reason – it’s gorge) but we’re so excited by all of the new fabrics we’re seeing these days. Completely beaded? Why not! Flowers? Sure! A traditional silhouette in a bold fabric is the perfect way to be unique but still look like a bride!

Theia is the king of alternative fabrics! Pearls and beads and petals, oh my!

Whatever you choose, just be true to yourself! These days, there is truly a style to suit every bride, so do your research and find what is truly “you”! Happy shopping 🙂
