Mother of the Occassion

Today I had the pleasure of working with the cutest mother and daughter. The mother of the lovely bride, wanting something chic and elegant without being frumpy, was informing me on what a difficult time she had been having finding something appropriate. I have to admit I have been hearing a ton of this lately. It is difficult when you are a beautiful woman and want to look and feel your best for the occasion, but are faced with the dilemma of only finding options that are either old and covered up or overtly sexy. We all agreed today that Callie did a wonderful job, especially with the latest collection, of finding that perfect balance for the mothers of the occasion. Again, a great fit and beautiful fabric is what is going to make all the difference. You are allowed to look stunning! Check out the Carleton and Rose- a few of my favorites!

How to Find the Right One for You (gown that is not husband!)

Today I wanted to discuss how in the world to find the perfect gown for you. There is SO much to choose from and it can be overwhelming. As I have not yet been faced with this difficult decision, many of my friends have and they have all kindly let me in the know on what closed the deal for them. As I assumed it would be, they all said fabric and fit hands down. Luckily, this criteria just happens to be what we take pride in at Modern Trousseau. There are a number of silhouettes out there to choose from...grecian, mermaid, ballgown, t length, fit to flare, A-line. Not to mention, the fabric...lace, charmeuse, silk satin, taffeta, thai silk, organza, etc, etc. It is tiring. So in order to choose first decide the right kind of fabric to fit compliment your body type. Next consider the venue, time of day, and time of year the wedding will be taking place. I.e... a silk sating ballgown is going to be hard to pull off at a noon garden wedding. What you think you want is most certainly not what you are going to end up with. What looks great in the magazine is not necessarily what is going to flatter you. At Modern Trousseau, I feel we have enough variety to provide everyone with what is perfect for you. Our fabrics are the finest of the fine...traveling all the way from France and Italy just for you. So bottom line....luxurious fabrics, breathtaking silhouettes. Come to the showroom and we can most certainly review!!

Winter Wonderland

For all of you lovely brides out there that may be expecting a chill around the time of your wedding, we have the perfect solution! People have been just raving over our latest collection of boleros and shrugs. My personal favorite would have to be the Fur Bolero. Throw it on over your wedding gown, kick the collar up and you are the epitome of a chic bride. Works with all silhouettes. Apparently it is quite difficult to find this amazing little accessory, so swing by the Showroom and I can put you in an array of stoles and boleros you are sure to die over. Choose from fox fur, lamb, or chinchilla.... and the best part about it is that you can certainly wear these again after your big day. I may even get one for myself!!

Okay so lately I have been hearing a lot of anxiety over finding the perfect gown. No need to fret. That is what we are here for. As the number one lace designer in the industry, I am inevitably always going to suggest to incorporate some lace into your gown. There is nothing more sophisticated and timeless than a beautiful French lace. However, if you are just not wanting to go that route, I have posted some suggestions below for you as well.
For a vintage inspired look, take a peek at Lauren, Jessica, Cara, and Autumn. The silhouettes are amazing and the lace speaks for itself. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Destination and outdoor weddings that require a gorgeous, no fuss look try Carla, Keira, Poppy, Taylor and Willow.
And for all of you glam brides that want to steal the show.... Mika, Addison, Harlow, Riley, Tania, Scarlett and McKenzie will all suit the occasion
Traditional ball gowns sure to make you feel like a princess Baily, Carrington, and Ashley.
However, there is something to be said for ALL of our gowns. I haven't met a sole who didn't fall head over heels in love with Devon, Sydney, and Gizelle.
Hope this helps out!!!
