This weeks dress was inspired by an impromptu photo shoot with the world-renowned wedding photographer, Denis Reggie. Mr. Reggie was hosting one of his conclave workshops and was in need of an instant model to assist in teaching his techniques of wedding photography. He is widely regarded as the top wedding photographer in the world- so this opportunity was a once in the lifetime chance for Ariel!

Surrey is a gorgeous lace ballgown for the romantic bride. She is from our most recent collection and exemplifies beauty! Her delicate Chantilly lace pattern is layered over tulle and luxurious silk fabrics. She has a ballgown silhouette and dropped waistline make her a perfect fit for every figure and bride! Surrey is available on Anne Barge trunk shows and in select Anne Barge retailers. To find out more information on Surrey or locations email us at info@AnneBarge.com.

Below, Surrey is accessorized with the Surrey belt, the perfect added detail of blush and latte silk flowers on a warm champagne satin ribbon!

We are thrilled with the real wedding featured on the blog “100 Layer Cake” this morning!

The link below connects you to beautiful images of the bride wearing Anne Barge for her Georgia wedding.

This stunning bride wore Anne Barge style 465 and accessorized with her own leather belt. We love all of the details of this wedding that create that rustic feel! Thank you “100 Layer Cake” for such a charming post!

We are loving the new ways of social media that spark creativity for every bride to make her day unique. Even more specifically we are LOVING- Pinterest.com. What better way to be inspired than to look at hundreds of pictures from real weddings! Brides are becoming more creative by the wedding, and it is setting a new trend in the bridal world. We love seeing your real wedding day pictures and details and are pinning our brides daily to our Pinterest site!

And for a little sneak peak, here are just a few of our favorite brides in their Anne Barge gowns!

Along with our traveling trunk show set we also have a traveling “best of” travel set. Our “best of” set contains around fifteen gowns and is composed of our best sellers and favorites. It enables stores and brides to see a larger selection of our gowns and keep stores’ stock fresh and exciting. Many times brides come in to see one Anne Barge gown and are excited to see numerous other gowns from the same designer. Unlike trunk shows, our “best of” collection does not have all our most recent gowns and they do not come with a rep. However, stores get to keep the “best of” collection almost four times longer than our trunk show gowns. We hope if you see our “best of” collection in a store near you, you will stop in to say hello. After all, you can’t have too much of a good thing!

For most of your wedding ceremony your guest will be looking at your back, so why not give them something amazing to look at? We love lace on trains, bows, and interesting details. Just check out some of these amazing Anne Barge back views!



Great TV alert!!! Tomorrow night, TLC will premiere their newest show, Randy to the Rescue.

“Miley has a personal approach to fashion which is bold and I wanted to reflect that. She has transitioned into a beautiful young woman and this silhouette is perfect for her. The vintage style of the beadwork paired with the modern application of the skirt gives the gown a youthful yet romantic tone.”
