We have had a ton of brides come in lately who are having destination weddings. While this can be very exciting, it can also limit your dress options. As an example, if you are getting married somewhere tropical with warm to hot temperatures you should really stay away from satin or dresses that may be “too much” dress. This may sound like a lot of information to think about…but NO WORRIES! Here at Le Dress boutique we have a wide variety of dresses that are sure to fit your destination!
Tropical Wedding Destination
As we briefly mentioned earlier stay away from heavy fabrics! We suggest a light chiffon or organza fabric. This Amy Kuschel is a great option especially if this wedding happens to be on the beach! It is sweet and simple but still remains very bridal.
Recently we had a bride who was getting married in a beautiful castle in Ireland. For a destination such as this you must think of the culture of the country you will be in as well as a dress ‘grand’ enough to fit the space. For this we suggest a fuller skirt with plenty of embellishment. This Justin Alexander would be a great option as it has more of a conservative silhouette and beautiful beading throughout the dress.
Elopement (Vegas, NY, Paris…etc)
Either opt for something very fun and unique or a chic short dress that you can dress up with some fabulous accessories and shoes!
These are just a few of the great options we have for a destination weddings! To see more of our inventory go to www.ledressboutique.com.

As the owner of a luxury consignment boutique in Atlanta, selling high-end wedding and evening gowns, I see a lot of knock-off dresses. This past Saturday, I had two different customers try to consign “look alike” dresses they had ordered over the internet. In each case, the dresses were new and had never been worn. The presentation is always the same….”I ordered this dress, and when it arrived, it did not fit. Will you consign it for me?” One dad said he ordered the dress for his daughter’s homecoming dance, with the guarantee that returns were accepted. When the dress arrived, it did not fit anyone approaching his daughter’s size. I smiled, and asked him if it came from China? He said yes. When asked how much he paid? He said $110. When he contacted the site to return the dress, the cost to UPS it back would be about the same as the purchase price and would take up to 5 weeks to arrive back in China. I just smiled and explained that’s how the scam works. The knock-off prom/dress sites look very legitimate. They often use the original designer’s photos, and it ALWAYS ends up the same…. The dresses never fit, and the quality is never the same as the photo. In the case of a knock-off mother-of-the-bride dress that was presented for consignment, the sleeves on the size 14 gown would only have fit a 10 year old child.
When I say “no, I am sorry, we can’t accept your dress for consignment” the refrain is always the same….It’s a pretty dress, it’s new, and it will fit someone. Although we consign all sorts of special occasion dresses, they only have resale value IF they have a genuine designer label, and have the quality and fit you’d expect from that designer. This problem also exists with wedding dresses, they knock-offs never get worn. Typically, the bride has tried on the designer original in a boutique, even though it was far outside her budget. Rather than choosing a dress within her budget, she orders the “look alike wedding gown” over the web and hopes it will be the same, for a 10th the price. If it is seems to good to be true…..
My advice is always the same…. Buy your dress from an AUTHORIZED retailer, or a reputable consignment boutique. You should see it, feel it, and try it on. Consignment boutiques often have samples, new, and recently discontinued styles that arrive directly from designers and overstocked boutiques. Happy Shopping…Linda

Nowadays it seems that no bride wants to be like another. This is starting to revolutionize the wedding industry, especially wedding attire! The most recent trends are jumpsuits and crop-top two pieces. Now, we haven’t gone as far as to stock up on white jumpsuits just yet but we do have quite a few non-traditional, “offbeat” wedding gowns!
One of our favorite and very fashion-forward gowns is this stunning Tadashi. What makes this dress even better is that at our boutique you can have her for only $395! Click the photo to go directly to our website!
Another great one is this Nicole Miller peplum dress. This is perfect as it is such a classic shape and will be easy to move in no matter where you are saying “I do!” Check out more of her details at www.ledressboutique.com
This Ivy and Aster is not technically a bridal gown but would be so stunning for our non-traditional ladies. She is a fit-to-flare gown with nude lining and sparkle EVERYWHERE!

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.
