When it comes to telling your story through your wedding, everything from your invitation suite to the flavor of your cake can help communicate something to your guests. In turn, your favorite details you choose for your wedding can create their own story–for example, if you fill your bouquet with gardenias, their scent will transport you back to that day, even years later. That’s why we love the idea of looking for inspiration everywhere, and in this case, we were inspired by Donna Morgan’s blue floral Stephanie dress. Its tone-on-tone palette is gorgeous for a wedding, but it would certainly serve as lovely newlywed home inspiration long after the big day! Here’s an inspiration board for the sweet, elegant, early summer celebration we envision this dress being a part of.

As y’all may remember from our outfits at the V6 launch party and a number of editorials over the years, we are huge fans of LulaKate here at Southern Weddings, which is why we were completely thrilled to learn that the talented lady behind some of our favorite bridesmaid dresses officially launched a bridal line last year. Kate McDonald Bridal effortlessly blends the chic, flirty vibe we love from LulaKate with a feel of timeless elegance that is perfect for Southern brides. Katherine McDonald kindly answered a few questions we had about her new line, and we are tickled pink to share her answers, as well as a few of our favorite Kate McDonald Bridal designs!

Corbin Gurkin

Tell us about the beginnings of Kate McDonald. Why did you want to start a bridal line, and how did you get started? My bridal line was an evolution of my bridesmaid line, which evolved from the ready-to-wear line. Bridal is my favorite of all three. I love working with the delicate and intricate fabrics. I never intended to have a bridal line, but then, some of my ready-to-wear customers asked me to design their wedding dresses. After saying no a number of times, I finally said yes. After the first dress, I was hooked I love the process of getting to know a bride and her family, and being part of such a special day.

What sets Kate McDonald apart from other bridal gown brands? We are proudly sewn in the USA and have some of the best customer service in the industry. We are also able to customize our gowns for our brides to give them a truly unique style.

What is your single best tip for a bride about to start shopping for her wedding gown? Remember to purchase the dress you love. Consider your loved ones’ opinions, but make the final decision yourself.

What is your current favorite wedding dress in your collection? If you were to get married tomorrow, which dress would you wear? Waring is my favorite dress from the 2015 Collection. I would wear either her or LaMour, from last year’s collection.

Corbin Gurkin

What is your favorite memory from your own wedding day? My dad playing the drums with the band!

What is the single greatest lesson you’ve learned in business? Never take anything for granted.

Corbin Gurkin

Name three items every gal should have in her closet. Something from your mom, something from your grandmother, and something you can pass down to your daughter/daughter-in-law.

Thank you so much, Katherine! Follow along with Kate McDonald Bridal here:
