Today’s featured dress is a gorgeous number from our newest collection, Waverly. She is an amazing example of how the right lines flatter your every curve and hide you every flaw. Tailored to perfection, Waverly is between a  sheath and modified A-line. I would almost venture to make a category just for her called structured sheath. Her skirt is narrow with a perfect flair at the bottom, and the bodice, waist and hips hug close to the body. While all this hugging and snugging makes it sound like you have to be 5′ 9″ and 120lbs to wear her the opposite is actually true. All shapes and sizes can wear her for two reasons. First, Waverly is structured and supported holding everything in and up. Second, the bands are strategically placed to highlight good and hide bad. All that sounds so boring and practical though; lets talk excitement. Waverly is different yet classic, romantic yet down to Earth, and sophisticated yet youthful. Honestly, this dress is just anything and everything. Waverly is available on trunk shows and at select Anne Barge stores. Contact us at for additional pricing, details and locations.

Right now our crack Anne Barge team is in Toronto, Canada shooting our newest ad campaign. It’s light, airy, young and most importantly drop dead gorgeous. We love the model, the gowns and the styling. We hope you love it when we finally get to debut the new images, but to hold you over here is a sneak peak. Shhh…don’t tell I showed you!

This Friday and Saturday we are super excited to be visiting Belle Vie in Chicago and White Toronto in Toronto. These are two of our best salons for styling amazing brides. Time after time, these two salons have made gorgeous Anne Barge brides whose photos we use as inspiration for others across the country. As a bride you could not pick better trunk shows to attend, but make your appointment fast as these two salons fill up appointment slots every trunk show!

Anne Hathaway recently made headlines with her engagement to Adam Shulman, and her amazing pink diamond engagement ring.

While no press releases have been issued as to when, where or how the couple will tie the knot; there has also been no mention as to who will design the beautiful Anne Hathaway’s Wedding gown. Might we make a suggestion? Check out just some of the Anne Barge gowns we would recommend for Anne, or should we just do a whole new one?

Perhaps Anne should wear our “Garner” gown to continue her “Catwoman” sleek personna.

Or maybe she should don 612 and go back to her Princess Mia days.

She could go fashion forward in “August” a la Devil Wears Prada,

Or classic like in “Bride Wars”.

Then again…she could just go as Anne in our 617 and take everyone’s breath away!

This Friday and Saturday we are so excited to travel to Washington, DC and New York City. In DC we will be at Hitched and in New York we will be at the infamous Mark Ingram. Both will be amazing trunk shows with our newest collection in attendance. Both need appointments so make yours today!

Thanks to Beth Chapman at our store, The White Dress by the Shore, for this amazing Jackie-O themed bridal shoot.

We adore this shoot done for Gala magazine and shot by photographer Carla Ten Eyck.  Beth did an amazing job styling this bride and we encourage you to take notes and be inspired!!!
