While poking around on some of our store’s blogs, I ran across a great idea on The Plumed Serpent’s blog ( Many times we use the word whisical on this blog, but what does it mean? Well, thanks to The Plumed Serpent’s genius idea, we can now add a bridal glossary to this blog. This is whimsical…


adj \ˈhwim-zi-kəl, ˈwim-\
: full of, actuated by, or exhibiting whims (see whim))
a : resulting from or characterized by whim or capriceespecially : lightly fanciful <whimsical decorations>b : subject to erratic behavior or unpredictable change
The part I really love about this definition and most attribute to bridal is “lightly Fanciful”. So lovely sounding.

There are no words to describe how amazing this shot of Gillian Zinsser in our Maya gown is. We love the hair, the make-up, the lighting, the pose, the face…everything! We are so delighted that Institute Magazine shot this image for us, and we can’t wait to see more of Maya. If you want to see more of Maya, email us at

We have directed you before to our website to see some of our amazing brides, but now there is a whole new place to find amazing photos of our brides. You can find a huge collection of breathtaking portraits on our Pinterest page. We have a board dedicated to real brides in their real wedding gown. We adore all of them and their unique styles.

Here are some pics you can find on our Pinterest page just to wet your appetite!

Rosamund, Rosamund, Rosamund…How does one put into words how gorgeous this dress is? She is an amazing, classic lace dress with the perfect amount of va-va-va-voom. A strapless neckline leads to a form fitting torso and it all culminates with a voluminous trumpet skirt with train. Bands of Aloncon lace detail this gown from top to bottom. Rosamund really is lace done right! She can be found on trunk shows and in select Anne Barge retailers. For additional info and pricing, contact us at
