I’ve never been known to make an understatement, so when I started trying on wedding gowns, it was no surprise that I just wanted all the beautiful elements in one dress. Put me in an elegant satin number, and I would ask if I could add tulle. Hand me a gorgeous trumpet of lace, and I was missing the satin. I’ll always swoon over another bride in a strikingly simple gown, but for myself, more was more!
I know I’m not the only one who couldn’t let go of the satin, the lace, the sparkle, the row of buttons up the back, OR the tulle. If you’re a feminine Southern gal raising your hand right now, I say embrace it! The good news is that with the right gown, you really can have it all without it being too much.
All this may explain why Casablanca Bridal’s Spring 2018 collection, Villa del Sol, immediately brought joy to my showstopper-loving heart. If you’re with me, you have to see the Elsie, Gracie, and Tegan!
Need another way to have it all? I hear you. Sometimes you put on a gown that gets really close to your dream dress, but you can just picture it with a small change that would seal the deal. That’s why Casablanca Bridal offers customization options that range from tweaking the length of a train to an entirely different skirt shape with the same bodice!
With all these options, the hardest part for a bride after my own heart may just be trying not to get carried away! (Thankfully, I realized before it was too late that my gown really didn’t need that huge satin bow in the back I tried to add to it. That actually might have been too much.)
With 23 very different gowns and sizing options including plus and petite in Casablanca’s Spring 2018 collection, there really is something for everyone. Go take a peek at the new collection for yourself!
