Lace sleeves are one of the top trends in bridal fashion these days, but most brides are reluctant to commit to a dress with sleeves on it. This is why removable jackets are a wonderful option for getting the look without sacrificing a great strapless dress! Not only do they provide a superior fit, but the jacket can come off for the reception--allowing you two different bridal looks for the same cost-- it doesn't get better than that! :)
This gown is a Whittington Bridal favorite! It also is an Essense of Australia gown, but we've added the Essense jacket and Bel Aire belt to alter the look a bit for an added Wow factor.
Another Whittington Bridal favorite is this jacket from San Patrick. We've paired it with a simple satin Mikaella dress and added a major statement belt from Saison Blanche to give you a completely different look!
These jackets are so versatile and can be added on top of almost any dress to give you that vintage style and create a unique bridal look that is truly you!
We are so excited to announce that Whittington Bridal is now an official It Works! Distributor! It Works! is an incredible company with amazing products-- from Advanced Formula Fat Fighter pills and Stretch Mark Moisturizing cream to the Ultimate Body Applicator and Defining gel-- they've got it all!

And don't forget the groom:

Happy Friday everyone! Last weekend, we traveled to Chicago to pick out all the beautiful Fall 2013 styles for our store. I wanted to give you a little sneak peek from Chicago Bridal Market to enjoy, so here are a few photos of some of our favorites from the Essense of Australia Booth. Enjoy the eye candy!
We got married at
Butler's Courtyard, in League City, Texas.
was your first dance song?
"Better Together" by Jack Johnson
was your favorite part of your wedding?
This is a tough one.. Getting to become
my best friend's wife, feeling beautiful in my dress, seeing all our relatives
that we hadn't seen in years, my father-in-law's toast at the rehearsal dinner,
the list goes on and on.
are you glad you splurged on?
Everybody raved about the string quartet at the
ceremony. I had so much adrenaline pumping through me during my walk down the
aisle, that I hardly remember hearing it, but since everybody else loved it, it
was totally worth it!
is your advice to future brides?
Don't stress on the day of, this is your
one day, enjoy it!
The reception- when the ceremony, pictures, toasts and dances were done with and I could finally relax and have a good time.
4. What are you glad you splurged on?
The Open Bar and the photo booth!!
5. What is your advice for future brides?
fun! And also, it takes a long, long time to do hair and makeup the day of! Make sure
you start early enough where you are not rushing the initial pictures or running
late, that almost happened to me. Also, make sure that the venue is only hosting your
wedding the day of, and if possible I would advise anyone to hire a wedding
planner to make your day a lot more enjoyable.
