Real Bride - Yvette

We are pleased to share the story of our Bonny Real Bride - Yvette with you! Yvette was married (to Adam) on  July 3, 2010 in a beautiful vineyard! Her photographer, Greg Cleaver in Kelowna, British Columbia, captured the gorgeous photos you see below!

Yvette wrote: "I came across my Bonny dress after a horrible experience in another store. I was pretty down that afternoon and the last store I walked into took me in without an appointment because they felt so bad for me. I tried on dress after dress but the consultant had this one picked out for me from the start. When she was doing up the back I knew it was the dress because it just felt right and I felt beautiful in it. On the day of the wedding I had so many compliments about how beautiful my dress was. It glimmered in the sun and swooped across the dance floor effortlessly. Thank you for making the perfect dress for me and for so many other women!"

THANK YOU YVETTE! You rocked in your dress! You looked amazing on your wedding day! We wish you and Adam many years of wedded bliss...congratulations!

Bonny hits San Francisco!

Rachel, from Brilliant Imagery, is back on her wild roadtrip! Here are some beautiful Bonny brides in gorgeous San Francisco! 

Gown of the Day

We took an informal poll on our Facebook page asking our brides their wedding colors. Black and white seemed to be the most popular colors - with an accent color thrown in! We love black and white so our gown of the day is style 1019 - a delicious dress from the Unforgettable Collection. This gown has a fit and flare silhouette. 

The simple, strapless gown has a banded waist that is covered with rich embroidery and beading. Buttons down the back lead to the inverted pleated semi-cathedral train with scattered lace accents. This gown is available in other colors as well - Blush, Coral, Yellow, Celadon, Palomino, Cloudy, Chocolate, Sky, Cornflower, Royal, Midnight, Pink, Lilac, Orchid, Aubergine, Claret, Platinum, Jasmine, Fuchsia, Bubble Gum and Azure!

Here are some beautiful accents for your black and white affair!

Today, cupcakes are more popular than ever at weddings! With this yummy creation you will not lose the top half of the cake (would you save it for a year?) and your guests get to choose from the many flavors cupcakes are available in!
This is our last week to enter our giveaway! This month we are offering a lucky bride the opportunity to win any dress from our Unforgettable Collection! If you are viewing our blog for the first time you can click on this link to enter now! The giveaway will close this Saturday! You have an opportunity to get 9 entries into the giveaway!

Gown of the Day

It's been so hot lately that I figured for a change of pace our Gown of the Day would be a light and airy Chiffon gown! I also chose to highlight a gown from our Unforgettable Collection - because well, you know, we have this giveaway going on - all month long!! A lucky bride is going to be able to choose any style she wants from our entire collection! Have you entered?

Style 1722 grabbed my attention! It's a very soft, flowing Chiffon gown that flatters the figure! It's a strapless gown with a softly curved neckline. Shirring through the bodice is centered with intricate embroidery and beading. The full A-line and semi-cathedral train is finished with the same decoration.

Encore Bridal Session - Lovely Leaf Studios

Here is an encore bridal session, photographed in Orange County, California by Lovely Leaf Studio. I thought there were some amazing shots...check out the entire photo shoot on their blog (do you love the 4th of July photos?!) or see them on Facebook!

Chiffon Unforgettable Wedding Gown

We had an email from a bride today who bought style 1919. It's a gorgeous Chiffon wedding gown and since we are still doing the giveaway this month for an Unforgettable gown, I thought I would highlight it as our Gown of the Day. 

Shirred chiffon shoulder straps lead to the deep V-neckline with a sheer lace modesty inset. An embroidered and beaded medallion centers the shirred band along the empire waist. The split front overlay drapes down the A-line skirt. The semi-cathedral train is finished with beaded lace appliques. Made from Chiffon and Tulle, this gown is available in White/Platinum and Ivory/Platinum
The bride who purchased this gown was looking for a matching veil - we are recommending a veil from Bel Aire Bridal Veil. I love this simple veil with a rhinestone edge. I found this veil online for $117 (not including headpiece) at Wedding Accessory Superstore (please check references before purchasing anything online!).

Real Bride - Taylor Stacks

I had a few basic elements in mind that I would like to have in a wedding gown: neo-vintage, champagne colored, tulle, lace, bead-work. With those things in mind I went looking online. I saw many things I liked but most of them were not what I had my heart set on. Being a young plus size woman can make what is already a tedious experience even more discouraging. When my mother, maid of honor, and I found this dress  in an Atlanta bridal store stockroom, every standard for my perfect dress went flashing in bright lights in my head. This style SCREAMED everything that makes my personality what it is. As I walked down the aisle to my husband's side, in this absolutely breathtaking gown, I knew I couldn't have picked a more amazing dress. I never had people look at me with that much awe in my life! Later, I was asked if the dress was a family heirloom gown. "No," I told them, but I thought to myself, "It will be." 

Hopefully, that says everything I felt about my experience with your company. It was honestly the most beautiful I've ever felt, and I can thank you guys for that. I also have a picture attatched that I would like on my profile. 

Thanks SO much!
Taylor Stacks

Chocolate Brown

A great choice from our Unforgettable Collection - style 1913. This gown is shown with a brown satin band but it comes in so many other colors! We found some adorable accessories to accent this gown...

Lace covered sheer shoulder shoulder straps lead into the scoop neckline bodice. A satin band wraps around the wasit with a centered rhinestone embellishment. The lace continues to fall down the fit and flare silhouette of the skirt into scattered lace down the semi-cathedral train. This gown is made from Organza, Tulle and Satin. It is pictured in Ivory/Chocolate but comes in the following colors: White and Ivory with Blush, Coral, Yellow, Celadon, Palomino, Cloudy, Chocolate, Sky, Cornflower, Royal, Midnight, Pink, Lilac, Orchid, Aubergine, Black, Claret and Platinum. 

And for your hair...we found this adorable clip!

Gown of the Day

Our July giveaway is ongoing for a free wedding gown from our Unforgettable Collection so, today, I wanted to highlight one of our best selling styles - style 1816

Style 1816 is a sleeveless gown with shirring covering the shoulder straps creating the V-neckline into the shirred empire band. Embroidered lace covers the modest neckline panel and then falls below the empire band into the full princess cut skirt. The back is fitted wtih lace up ties and a decorated semi-cathedral train. This gown is made from Princess Organza and comes in White/Platinum/Gold and Ivory/Platinum/Gold

Strapless Star!

Today, I would like to highlight style 1004 from our Unforgettable line. If you are the lucky winner of our gown giveaway this month, which is ANY style of Unforgettable collection, you could choose this gown from the Blog Giveaway

This strapless gown has a soft sweetheart neckline. Beaded lace falls from the neckline into the ruched cinched waist. The full A-line skirt has lace decorating the hem. Buttons drape down the back into the soft pleats along the decorated semi-cathedral train. It is made from French Taffeta and Tulle and comes in White/Silver and Ivory/Silver. Not sure you want to go with a Strapless gown? No worries! We made a jacket, that is sold separately, that compliments this style beautifully (style 1099).
