Obviously, we LOVE weddings and wedding dresses here at Le Dress Boutique. In the most recent issue of The Knot the latest wedding dress trends are listed as naked lace, capes, dropped waist, and plunging neck lines. The good news is that here at Le Dress Boutique we have ALL of these trends for amazing prices! We will show you just a few of these examples here! To see all of our options check out www.ledressboutique.com!
Trend: Naked Lace
L’Fay ‘Anna’ stays near to this trend while offering a sweetheart neckline and stunning scalloped-edge train.
Trend: Plunging Neckline
This Maggie Sottero is a beautiful example of this trend. She also has stunning bead work and a simple yet flattering shape.
This gorgeous a-line gown comes with a detachable cape-like bolero jacket. This would be a great way to try the cape trend as it is a modern interpretation and can be removed for various aspects of the wedding.
Trend: Dropped Waist
This is a classic silhouette that looks good on so many women! This Allure in particular has just the perfect amount of sparkle and embellishment.

We have had so many women come to our boutique lately looking for a gown to wear to a Military Ball. This can be a very exciting time, but for most us…prom or college formals were the last time we needed a fancy gown! Because of this many women still gravitate towards sexy, sparkly dresses which is NOT okay for a Military Ball. We have just a few pointers for you when picking out your dress:
- Stick with SUBTLE sexy! It is important for you to feel beautiful and confident, but keep it classy. For example, instead of that gown with the open, extremely low back, go with a halter that shows off a little back and some shoulder! See this Jovani below, and more of our inventory at www.LeDressBoutique.com!
– Next, try a current trend! Lace is extremely popular now and can look SO classy!
This Betsy and Adam gown has a FABULOUS shape that will hug you in all the right places. This dress really does a great job of using shape (Not skin!) to exude sexy, staying current with lace, and creating a stunning neckline with the deep v-neck. See her and her details at www.LeDressBoutique.com!
-Stay away from metallics, electrics, and other bright colors! The ideal colors for a Military Ball gown are gold, red, navy, and black!
This David Meister gown is perfect! It’s a great color, shape, and even has a touch of sparkle around the collar! Check out all of her details at www.LeDressBoutique.com!
Hopefully our tips will help you find your perfect gown! To see all of these dresses along with the rest of our inventory check out www.LeDressBoutique.com!

Congrats – you made Homecoming Court! Now you need a fabulous dress…. Here are 5 tips for what to wear if you are homecoming court:
- Pick a color that POPS… everyone will be looking at your from far away, so you want to have “Field Presence.”
- Long gowns are the call of the day at most schools – but don’t make it too sexy. This isn’t prom, nor a Hollywood premier.
- Some sparkle is good – but again, this is not Prom. Strike a balance between elegant and sparklelicious.
- Don’t break the bank! You probably only wear this dress for 2 hours. Shop consignment shops or borrow from a friends.
- A big smile, and shoes you can walk in, are the BEST Accessories for Homecoming court.
For more versatility, wear this great Angela & Alison Dress LONG for #Homecoming Court, then shirt for the dance! This dress retails for $ 362, but on consignment (never worn) she is only $185!
So smile big as you walk on the field and have a great time at Homecoming!

Alright ladies! Last week we found you the perfect dress for your venue, now we need to make sure it is the right style dress for your body! We are all so very different, so sometimes it is hard to find a dress that really highlights your best assets…and we get that! However! Here at Le Dress we have SO many different styles and designers you will surely find your perfect fit! In today’s blog we have narrowed down body types into four fairly common shapes and given you an example of what kind of dress will be best for your shape.
All of the dresses featured in today’s blog can be found in our boutique or online at www.LeDressBoutique.com! Click each picture to go straight to our website!
If you have an apple shape:
This San Patrick “Harriott” gown would be perfect! The satin waist is slightly dropped and cinched in to create the hour glass shape. The skirt will add a fullness to the bottom that will create a nice silhouette. (Dropped waist warning: if you are short, go for a higher waist line with ruching or some sort of definition around your middle, and a fuller bottom to create a waistline.)
If you have an hourglass shape:
You are one of the lucky ones because most things will look good on you! Mermaid, dropped waist, and a-line cuts are all great suggestions but one that we really love, and recommend is this Lillian West 6319 fit to flare gown. It is made from natural silk and has a lace yoke sleeve with button detail down the back. This gown retails for 1145, but Le Dress has it for just $820!
For you ladies with a Pear shape:
A-line is always a good go to for this body type, but you have to be sure not to make the bust area look smaller than it is! A great way to avoid this problem is to find a gown that is A-line, but has some detail (like ruching) along the bust to add volume! This Paloma Blanca is a great example of this. This dress is priced at only $695 at Le Dress Boutique!
Lastly, the rectangle:
You lovely ladies probably have broad shoulders, and a pretty straight torso. Often times women with broad shoulders try to hide them with lace and sleeves when in reality you should show them off! If you choose a halter, one shoulder, or strapless gown with a fuller bottom your body will look more proportionate and “hourglass-esque.” The dress we have chosen for you is the Amsale Newport gown made of silk faille. Having this one strap will not only make you feel more comfortable and confident but it will also highlight your gorgeous shoulders. The waist is already going to create some shape for you, but if you want a bit more try adding a nice sash for great definition!
So there was just a sneak peek of how Le Dress can help you pick out your perfect gown, we have so much more where this came from! To see all of our inventory go to www.LeDressBoutique.com or stop into our boutique and see us! With Luv, Le Dress

At Le Dress Boutique we always ask our brides where they are getting married before we start an appointment. You may ask yourself, “What does this have to do with me trying on dresses?” Believe it or not, your venue SHOULD have an effect on the style dress you buy! As an example, you wouldn’t want to wear satin in 95° weather…. Because nobody wants to be a sweaty bride on their special day! At Le Dress Boutique we have tons of dresses in various fabrics that would be great for any venue!
We have separated venues into a few different categories and listed some of our FAB dresses that would be perfect for said venue. This first set of dresses is for our chateau/cathedral/upscale hotel bride:
This gown is grand enough for a large venue and has a classic elegance with beading across the bust and waist. Because your venue is indoors the satin will work out perfectly and make for beautiful photos! This dress can be found at www.LeDressBoutique.com for only $895! Our next choice would be this Allure 8968 ivory lace and tulle a-line gown! It is currently being sold for $395!
Last but definitely not least, our Karelina Sposa C7900 gown! It is encrusted with beads and pearls down the bodice, has a dropped waist, and a keyhole back. It is a size 8 and ONLY $695!
On to our beach brides! You obviously want a light and airy material if you are getting married on the beach, but you also want to make sure that it is either short, or has no train so that you don’t get caught up in all sand on your way down the aisle! Our first dress-recommendation is this fun and flirty short Ivy & Aster dress! It is perfect for a beach wedding, and can be dressed up with a beaded sash! $295
We also have a gorgeous Nicole Miller gown that is perfect for a beach wedding. It is a long dress for those brides that prefer to stick with tradition, but it is a light fabric, and doesn’t have much of a train to get in your way! This gown is a size 12 and is at our boutique for $645. Check it out online at www.ledressboutique.com.
Because we realize that there are other places to get married outside other than the beach, we now bring you our third grouping of venue-perfect dresses! This group is for brides getting married in a garden, farm, or wooded environment! Monique Lhuillier designed our next gown. This would be great for a country-chic wedding venue or a park in the fall. Satin Warning!! Do not get this dress if you are getting married outside in the heat! That won’t be ideal, trust us! However, the satin does add an elegant touch and the lace at the top makes it great for a soft and southern touch.
For our girls getting married in a outdoor garden, such at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens or the Raleigh Rose Garden this would be perfect! It is a soft chiffon wedding gown, and inspired by Jada Pinkett Smith’s Oscar gown. This gown is just $895!
Lastly is this Paloma Blanca 4305 lace gown. This is simply stunning for any outdoor wedding. The lace is romantic while the belt adds a bit of glamour. We have this gown at www.ledressboutique.com for $1020.
These are just some of our lovely gowns, and we hope that you swing by our boutique before your big day to see us, or check us out online at www.LeDressBoutique.com!
