Here they are! The new Spring 2012 Collection!

We try to remember all throughout market week why we do what we do. The reason? Our brides. Each year we put out two new collections, travel to New York, meet with buyer, and fly home. At the end of the day we always know that we do this so that each bride can find her dream dress. Those dresses are made for you! The bride is why we work hard and why we love working at what we do. That being said…it is important after all this market rush to see the result of all that hard work. I could not imagine anyone more perfect to fill that position than our real life bride Jessica. She married the love of her life Dustin wearing our gown, Carson. She looked amazing, and it takes our breath away every time we look at these photos! Thank you so much Jessica for sending us your pics, and for being a perfect Anne Barge bride!

So far we have received amazing feedback on our finale gown, Pembroke. She is an amazing gold lace fitted gown, and is perfect for the bride who wants to make a big statement. While she went down the runway with dramatic golden headpiece veil, you can make this gold dress work on your wedding day. My suggestion…still wear the gown in gold to make a statement but tone down the accessories to take it to the aisle. First, let’s take a look at the Pembroke dress…

First, add a pair of amazing gold heels…

Next, add a gorgeous messy bun with custom hair comb to compliment Pembroke’s vintage feel…

Finally, tone down the runway drama by adding a simple, sheer long veil. It’s perfect for framing the gown without detracting from the gorgeous lace and it adds drama without going over the top.

Don’t let the drama of the runway keep you from having some drama on your big day. You can wear a dramatic dress with toned down accessories and look like a supermodel in your own rite!

Check out these photos from The Knot bridal party. It’s our very own Anne Barge with our model Adair wearing the amazing finale gown. Love!
