Winter Perfect…

Close your eyes for just a sec as I set a winter scene for you. It’s a chilly winter night and a light snow gently falls outside. Inside, everyone is warm and toasty with candlelight reflecting off the windows and walls. The doors open and out steps the bride clad in soft ivory satin and a delicate lace coat. Her veil trails behind her framing perfectly the lace and skin of her back. Can’t you just see it, and don’t you just love it. In my opinion lace and winter go hand in hand. The delicateness of the lace is reminiscent of snow and frost, and both exude an atmosphere of peace. Not to mention, it’s getting colder out as winter comes on so a jacket would be a good idea. Take a look at these gorgeous lace Anne Barge jackets to add that grace and elegance to your winter wedding day.

Friday’s Featured Dress…

Today’s featured dress once again comes to us from our most recent Anne Barge collection. Inspired by the Duchess of Cambridge’s gorgeous gown, Anniston is a luxurious and convertible lace ballgown. The gown is a simple silk satin ballgown with dropped waist, pleated princess skirt and lace hemline. Over the gown is an intricate french lace coat and hand beaded belt. It does not get more royal than this dress! It looks amazing on all body types and can be worn any time of year. My suggestion…wear coat and long veil for your ceremony and underdress with great hairpiece for the party. Anniston can be seen on select trunk shows and will be in select stores soon. Email us at info@AnneBarge for additional pricing, details and location.

Friday’s Featured Dress…

I know today is Thursday, but I kind of have big plans tomorrow. I have thus decided to put up Friday’s Featured Dress today so as not to forget and deprive you of gorgeous photos. This week’s featured dress is from our brand new collection, and her name is Pembroke. She received so many compliments after closing down our runway show I thought it only right she be the first featured dress from our new collection. Made of gorgeous metallic gold lace, Pembroke is sexy meets girl next door. She begins with a sheer lace neckline and runs down a very fitted bodice and ends with a gorgeous trumpet skirt. Coordinating lace scallop emphasizes the knee line and hemline. Pure dramatic beauty. This gown can be seen on select trunk shows and by special request but will be in stores soon. She is available in pearl and white if golds not your cup of tea. Feel free to email us for more information and pricing at

Neckline Lingo…

We tend to toss around terms a lot in the bridal world, and we use them to describe gowns on our “Friday’s Featured Dress” all the time. What do they actually mean? Well, there are tons so I figured we could break it down, and today we start with necklines. Here are the most common bridal necklines, and instead of more words to define them, we will use photos.
