Today’s dress is flirty and just absolutely fabulous! Victoire is actually two in one, who could ask for anything better than that? She has a sheer bateau-neckline accented by an appliqued alencon lace trim, and her bodice and silk satin organza trumpet silhouette are accented with the same alencon lace appliques. She is picture below with a detachable, organza, ballgown over-skirt. Perfect for any bride who wants to make a statement with her grand ballgown ceremony dress and still be able to dance the night away in a more fitted gown! One of the best parts of this couture confection is the detail and lace placement over the sheer back neckline of the gown with the silk buttons down the center back! Pure Elegance! For more information on this gown- visit any of our retailers or www.annebarge.com

Today’s dress is one of my favorites! Brigitte is simple and sophisticated with her scoop tip of the shoulder tank neckline and flattering silhouette. Her fitted bodice with dropped waist and full skirt make her versatile for a cathedral entrance or chic garden wedding. What makes her so unique and especially stunning is the use of striped shantung fabric, accented exquisitely with a black picot trim ribbon at the natural waist. We love that a simple gown can fit so perfectly and take every breath away in a crowd! To wear this gorgeous gown be sure to visit one of our many retailers and visit www.annebarge.com. Happy Friday!

Downton Abbey and the Great Gatsby are becoming some of the latest inspiration and trends both on the red carpet and in the bridal world. This past weekend, many celebrities could be seen wearing fitted corsets, fuller skirts, hair swooped back, and a return to the ladylike elegance that you expect in bridal. I would like to introduce a sneak peek of our latest ad campaign images that take me right to the grand foyer at Downton. Enjoy!

Tradition and sophistication are the perfect words to describe this stunning lace gown. Delphine has a beautiful, pearl, lace a-line skirt. Her fitted sweetheart bodice is complemented with scalloped straps that sit on the shoulder, marrying the perfect amount of elegance in this silhouette. In this photo the Delphine belt is an exquisite accessory and addition to the bride’s ensemble. All eyes will be on this bride as she walks down the isle with her sweeping train and deep V back neckline adding just the right amount of flattering grandeur. To try this gown visit any of our retail stores and check out annebarge.com for trunk show listings!
