Today it’s all about bridal fashion! We rounded up four of our favorite current bridal fashion trends we think you’ll love. Remember, you can always check out our events page to find out about DFW bridal boutiques and any sales, trunk shows and events they are having! Cheers!

Sleek Silhouettes

We love the look of a sleek silhouette. With minimalist brides on the rise, its only appropriate that a sparser yet elegant look would start to trend in 2017. Plus, clean and simple gowns can be the perfect canvas for a bold headpiece or accessory.

Open Backs

An open back adds the perfect “wow” factor to any bride’s gown! It can be such an unexpected element and gives the bride an opportunity to show off a little more skin in a stunning way!

Dramatic Ball Gowns

Every bride deserves to feel like a princess on her special day, which is why we’ll always be obsessed with dramatic ball gowns. Ball gowns have been a classic wedding day style for many years, they are much like a fine wine; they only get better with time! Sweetheart necklines, elaborate beading and full tulle skirts are some of our favorite details that makes theses dresses really dazzle!

Lace Detailing

Nothing says romance quite like lace. It truly is incredible to see how every little stitch is so purposefully woven to create such an intricate and dreamy look. We love to see how brides customize their lace gowns to match their personal wedding day style. From boho to traditional, lace can be tailored to so many different styles.

Socially Responsible Eco-Friendly Jewels from The True Gem

We’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about moissanite lately, so we were absolutely thrilled to discover The True Gem located right here in DFW. Read on to learn more about moissanite and The True Gem!

Q: Tell us a little about The True Gem.
A: We are jewelry lovers with a passion for responsibly sourced gemstones and diamonds that are not only affordable, but beautiful! We don’t believe in compromising these principles and this applies to every aspect of the jewelry making process. We are committed to creating beautiful yet sustainable jewelry that is made right here by our local artisans of recycled metals and a variety of gemstones you can be proud to wear!

Ultimately, we want our jewelry to represent true and lasting love. To us, this means making hard decisions so that we can truthfully stand for human rights, sustainability and quality at every level of production. We love the jewelry industry and we strive to create a product without compromise, a business that honors life and land, and a community that satisfies our customers’ insistence on truth and consistency.

Q: What exactly is moissanite? How is it different than a diamond?
A: Moissanite was first discovered in a meteor crater in Arizona in 1893 by a man named Moissan. More recently, very large naturally occurring moissanite crystals have been found in Israel. It is not a diamond, nor a fake diamond. It’s just a different, naturally occurring or lab-grown stone.

Chemically, moissanite is completely different from a diamond. But it looks like a diamond. It feels like a diamond. Its thermal qualities are difficult to distinguish from those of a diamond.  And best of all, a moissanite actually out-performs a diamond in terms of optics, and is still durable and scratch resistant enough to be worn every day and last a lifetime.

Q: Is moissanite ethnically sourced?
A: No earth was moved nor human disrespected in the production of this sparkly rock. The beauty of this lab grown gem is more than just the optical fascination.  With a clear conscience, moissanite is perfectly suited to represent your love story without being associated with any other narrative.

Q: Moissanite is so gorgeous – it must be super expensive right?
A: Actually no! We realize that getting engaged is about more than just the ring. This is sometimes the first step in building a life together and it sure feels amazing not having to compromise on ethics, beauty or your financial goals.

Q: Do you offer other gems besides moissanite?
A: We do! Custom one-of-a-kind pieces will always be a huge part of what we do. Since we offer everything, our goal is to offer our customers what they most want, and what is fitting to their unique situation. We like to provide information and a wide range of options and ideas, and expect that you will let us know what is best for you. We think that The True Gem rings, with their recycled 18k gold or Platinum metal look smashing dressed up in new ethically sourced diamonds, heirloom diamonds, lab-grown diamonds, moissanites, rubys, emeralds, sapphires, spinels…. We could go on, but you get the idea. We want to make it your ring!

Q: Where can we shop?
A: Our Dallas studio is by appointment only – email us at hello@thetruegem.com or call 214.253.2991. Browse our shop online where our rings are shown with moissanite center stones and can be made with responsibly sourced gemstones, diamonds or a stone that you already own! We also offer custom design services and modifications. Please contact us for pricing and availability.

Summer weddings are adored here at the Brides of North Texas, so today we thought we’d share a little of Katherine and Ron’s special day captured by Tyler + Lindsey – one of our favorites from 2016! From the simple aesthetic of the ceremony to the intricacies of the reception, The Laurel in Grapevine was the perfect place to say “I do” for this darling couple. The plush wood, exposed beams, grand windows and stone features were the perfect details to complement the bridesmaids’ feminine colored gowns from Stardust Celebrations and florals from Flourish Floral Design Studio. With hair and makeup done by Lip Service Makeup, the bride looked effortlessly beautiful in her elegant sweetheart gown. Thanks to the talent of C. Marie’s Sweets, guests were treated to yummy desserts, and The Royal Dukes Band entertained on the dance floor. The newlyweds rode away in a fabulous limo from Blue Diamond Limousine. Needless to say, Katherine and Ron’s wedding was a blast! Cheers!
