Dress Envy


I have had this gown saved for awhile, and now that an amazing group of blogger brides have shared their dress stories (see them all here), it’s time to share it! Blogger Dress Envy isn’t going away because it is way too much fun–it’s just going to be an occasional surprise from now on. :) This dress is one of the most stunningly different gowns I’ve ever seen–uniqueness is one of the huge benefits of buying a white couture gown rather than limiting yourself to gowns that are strictly bridal. Look at how beautifully this one turned out!

Isn’t the lace work so striking against the sunset? The dress is the Ulla-Maija Couture Bianca, and this lovely bridal shot was photographed by Paul Johnson Photography and featured on Style Me Pretty.

Love, Lisa

  4. So glad you loved Kristie’s dress! She couldn’t have been a sweeter bride. Did you see the cake in our SMP feature? There’s a great shot of it in our wedding film sneak peek where you can see how wonderfully the cake designer recreated the lace from the dress.

      Wow, that is a gorgeous cake to go with a gorgeous dress! Thanks so much for the comment–the film sneak peek on SMP brought a tear to my eye, I must admit :)
