We have a lot of brides who come into the shop looking for something other than the typical, formal bridal style. They want to be a little casual, but still feel special on their big day. They are looking for casual elegance. One gown that we recommend for these brides is Amy Kuschel's Harlem. The lace on the bodice is relaxed but sophisticated and the sheath silhouette is a classic, vintage-inspired style. This gown pairs well with either hair worn down in finger waves to emphasize the Jazz Age inspiration or a loose, braided updo. We love it with a big bouquet of white hydrangeas, and what is more casually elegant than a perfectly styled pie table?!
