Christos Feature Gown: Anabelle

Looking for the perfect wedding gown? One with a little whimsy, a dash of lace and stunning details? Well today's Christos feature gown may be THE ONE! 'Anabelle,' another gown from the Spring 2013 Christos Collection we are getting in for the Trunk Show this weekend, is no ordinary lace gown!

She has a soft modified a-line skirt and a bateau neckline to-die-for. An intricate re-embroidered Chantilly lace creates a pattern of lace and negative space that is totally unique!!! If the bow at the waist seems a little demure for your taste, add a fabulous beaded belt to change the look. If you'd prefer a little vintage pop, add familoy heirloom, like a brooch, to the sash and have your 'something old' in the bag!

I can just imagine the gorgeous, romatic weddings that this beauty will grace. I can see her in a garden, or a big church wedding with a long veil, or even a more modern affair, styled with colorful accessories! Want to make her your own? Call today and schedule your appointment for this weekend's trunk show. See you then!

Christos Feature Gown: Gretta

Erin, Stylist

I know you've been on pins and needles waiting for our next Christos Feature Gown post, well here it is! The gown of the day is another from the Spring 2013 line - 'Gretta' - and, YES, she will be here for next week's trunk show!

This stunner features one of the hottest bridal trends, an oh-so-wearable peplum! The exquisite texture you see comes from the delicate eylet silk organza the gown is made from, and the soft fit to flare silhouette makes her a breeze to wear. I am simply loving the feminine details of this gown! From the illusion draping over the sweetheart neckline, to the sumptuous satin ribbon and floral corsage at the waist, this gown is sure to turn heads.

As I am feeling inspired by this lovely gown, I decided to give you a link for some ideas for an uber-important detail of your own fete, the stationary!! Check out the work at Minted-our own Emily LOVES their work so much, she got HER wedding invitations from them! They also have great wedding inspiration boards, and don't forget to order some FREE invitation samples (that's right, they are free for a limited time!).

Christos Feature Gown: Meadow

Erin, stylist
In the days leading up to our fabulous Christos Trunk Show (happening May 17-19!), we decided to celebrate the new line by featuring a different gown in each post! Today, we'll see how one femenine, ethereal, brand-new Christos gown can be worn in VERY different ways.

'Meadow' from the new Spring 2013 collection is a full gown of Trellis Point d'esprit (it looks like delicate trails of dotted vines enrobing the gown in a natural motif!) with flutter sleeves and a natural waist. Here are just two ideas for ways to style her!

First, let's imagine her in a Vintage-themed or 50's inspired wedding! I would recommend hemming the gown to an ankle or tea length, wearing a colorful pump, and finishing your look with short gloves and pearls! Have your groom-to-be get in on the action and don suspenders and a bow tie. Here are a few images to set the mood:

Next, let's style her a little more natural and bohemian-think curly willow, soft greerery, wildflowers and a burnished gold. I'd recommend removing the flutter sleeves, adding a vintage brooch off-center to the waist detail, and using natural elements like pheasant feathers, cotton or twine in your bouquet and decor! Here are a few pictures for inspiration:

Remember beautuful brides, when you fall in love with a gown, be sure to make it your own!

Christos Feature Gown: Peony

Emily, Co Owner

Couture at it's most feminine and finest, the Spring 2013 Christos Collection was truly one of my favorites at Bridal Week in NYC. 

Naturally, I am counting the days until this breathtaking collection arrives in our store for the Christos Trunk Show (appointments begin May 17-19!), along with the amazing Fall 2012 gowns. In that excited spirit, I have decided a special gown feature is in order! 

Romantic and classic brides, this is a collection you absolutely must see!

Gown: Peony
The Christos Peony gown, from the Fall 2012 Collection, has finally arrived to stay in our boutique. It seemed only fitting that we debut the gown at the Weddings in Houston Corinthian event last week.  

The delicate, billowing tulle and light blush hue was an absolute show stopper. A more appropriate title might be "bride stopper", because it seemed every engaged gal had to take a closer peek.

So I began to daydream about what a Peony inspired wedding may look like, a fabulous Friday project. Enjoy!

Call today to schedule your Trunk Show appointment to see this amazing collection & find your dream gown.
