Morgan's Must Haves: Accessories!

Ok, guys...I think we need to talk.

TALK ABOUT ACCESSORIES, THAT IS!

We are all about our brides finding their dream dress, but what about finding the perfect touch of sparkle to go with it?! Well, don't worry, because today we have got you covered (in Sara Gabriel perfection of course)! Even the most simplistic of brides can want a little something extra to pull together their flawless wedding look, and I'm pretty sure we have that little something! 

Today we want to show you some of our favorite pieces by the one and only Sara Gabriel. Whether you are looking for a small hint of sparkle or a full blown WOW headpiece, we will make sure you walk down that isle in head-to-toe perfection, while still staying true to the kind of bride you want to be! 

So, let's get started. First off, for the bride looking for something that makes a simple yet classic statement... meet Elisa and Celeste! 



This Elisa comb is the perfect piece for any bride that wants to put a little spice in their up-do! It's just the right amount of crystal to make your already special day a little more special! And our Celeste duet is the perfect classic piece with its pearl details. Oh, and did I mention, it can also double as a belt! 

Up next, flowers, which we promise can be more than just center pieces! If you're a destination bride or if you just love the idea of a floral headpiece, then you have got to check out our Amber Hair wrap (pictured first)! And if that is just a little too glam for you, then our Kathleen hair clips will be the perfect touch, I guarantee it! 



And that brings me to those statement-making, jaw-dropping, fall-out-of-your-seat headpieces that we just love showing off! Now, don't get us wrong, any Sara Gabriel accessory is going to be flawless, simple or statement, but if you're a bride that is looking to wow the pants off of your guests, then you should definitely pay close attention! 

(We will take a moment to let you be in awe of the beauty below...)






Are you swooning yet? It's ok, so are we. These lovely pieces (in order top to bottom) are Hazel, Harlow, Freya, Josephine, and Violet. All the perfect addition to your already perfect gown! Seriously, they are even more stunning in person! So if you are looking for a little something to top off the dress of your dreams, LUXE is here to help! And if you have already fallen in love and can't wait to make one of these beauties yours, then pop on over to luxereduxbridal.com and snag it up before someone else does! 

Happy blogging, brides!

Morgan's Must Haves: Throw Back Thursday!

Happy Thursday to all you blushing bloggers out there! In honor of this rainy Ohio day, I thought I would shine some light on all of you with a little "Throw Back": bridal edition! So, today we are going to reminisce back to the wedding days of some of our favorite celebrities! 

Prepare to feel overwhelming nostalgia, ladies and gentleman, cause here we go! 


I think we should start with the one and only Audrey Hepburn because, well, IT'S AUDREY HEPBURN. This photos takes us back to 1954 when Audrey said "I do" in a flawless Balmain high-neckline gown... (cue sighs of pure admiration and hints of jealousy).

Are we feeling nostalgic yet? 


Up next, one of my personal favorites, Keira Knightley. If this short recycled Chanel gown isn't the epitome of adorable (and cool and chic and fun and so on and so forth) then I don't know what is! Did you hear me when I mentioned that it was recycled!? Yes, meaning she basically just grabbed this little beauty from her closet and ran out to marry the love of her life as if it was just a normal day. Then as if it weren't already perfection she topped it off with a stunning textured Karl Lagerfeld jacket. Ugh, Keira, we are not worthy. 



Alright, now we move on to the ever-so-flawless Lauren Conrad. Not to anyone's surprise, Lauren was a classic ray of lace and sunshine on her big day. She first wow'd her guests in a high-neckline lace Badgley Mischka but as if that wasn't enough, returned to her reception in a gorgeously simple and strapless lace Monique Lhuillier! 


Thus, the dress that surprised us all! I'm sure I'm not the only one that was shocked to see Jessa Duggar select a stunningly modest blush ballgown by Allure Bridals, was I?! This gown was the perfect combination of class and sass and WE LOVED IT! You go, girl! 




And now, ladies and gentleman, Chrissy Teigen. Who blew us all away by not one... not two... but THREE custom Vera Wang gowns. Each gown more flawless than the last, she spent her wedding day draped head-to-toe in perfect looks (all based off of original Vera styles) that ensured a jaw-drop or two (..or three). 

How do I even begin to talk about the incredible custom Versace gown worn by the one and only Angelina Jolie?! Although this gown was classically perfect on its own, the real head-turner here is that veil! Angelina wore a veil that was top to bottom embroidered in drawings done by her little ones. Let's take a minute for everyone to let out their aweeeee's. 

 

Hold your breath, because Ashley Tisdale just walked into our blog wearing the most perfect Monique Lhuillier ball gown. There aren't even words for this timeless and elegant look... other than WOW. 


Drum roll for our big finale... 



KATE MIDDLETON! I mean... we all might as well just step back while the Duchess of Cambridge literally gets the world to stop what they are doing, turn on their TV's, and swoon over her Sarah Burton bridal gown. As if she isn't stunning enough, Kate's lace sleeved (slightly risky V-neck) ball gown was effortless, classic, and dare we say it- ROYAL.

Morgan's Must Haves: Destination Dreams

Happy February, readers! At Luxe, we get a lot of brides who are planning their nuptials somewhere warm, sunny and often right next to the crashing waves (excuse us while we day dream in jealousy from this chilly crisp Ohio day). Today we are going to talk about destination bridal gowns! However, you may be surprised at what we have to say. Often, brides have an idea that when you are getting married beach side, it is a must to wear a simple, flowing, chiffon gown. Although this look is absolutely stunning, we are here to open your eyes to a few other options that may surprise you! 

First off, LACE! Ladies, if you have always imagined your wedding day in the classic look of lace, but are convinced that it isn't "appropriate" for the beach, have no fear, Luxe is here! If you want lace then you deserve to wear lace! Here are a few lacey styles that may just be the perfect combination of classic and beachy... 





Now, on to my personal fav, dun dun dun dunnnn THE BALLGOWN! Ballgown shapes are often thought of as heavy, but this isn't always the case! Keep in mind, it isn't the shape of your dress that weighs it down, it's the fabric! Sticking to fabric like organza or soft tulle will leave you feeling light, airy, and like a total princess! 





Of course, we have also got you covered if you are looking to sparkle even brighter than that beautiful blue water, which is exactly what this Martina Liana stunner is sure to do! 


Now if you're a beach bride who is looking for that classic light chiffon flow, don't worry, we didn't forget about you! Here's just a few of our favorite traditional destination looks... 






Just keep in mind that we are here to help you be YOU on your wedding day! XOXO

Morgan's Must Haves: COLOR!

These days brides are not afraid to throw away tradition and get a dress with a little (or a lot) of COLOR! Whether it be something subtle and dainty like ivory over champagne or a bold and stunning jet black, brides have been getting more comfortable with going against the grain to walk down the aisle in a dress sure to wow their crowd! And let me add, we are not complaining! Luxe loves the idea of being a little sassy on your wedding day, because that's just what it is, YOUR wedding day! Now, don't get us wrong, we will forever love the classic look of an ivory gown, but sometimes that just isn't for everyone, and that's ok! So let's talk color... but not just any color... LUXE color. 

Between our locations in both Columbus and Cincinnati, we have a large variety of beautiful and colorful options for any bride looking to step out of the box. So let's go shopping! 

We will start somewhere gentle, like simple and light blush/champagne/cashmere gowns that will be sure to bring on a "WOW" but also don't stray too far from tradition. Sometimes having a layer of classic ivory lace over a darker color can not only give your lace a 3D effect, but also be a perfect combination of classic and modern!


 
Or maybe you just want to go straight for that stunning pale pink!


Even if you're a bride who is looking to be completely one-of-a-kind and nothing short of uniquely stunning, then LUXE will have your back! Our WTOO Freida gown is absolutely mesmerizing in this twilight black and the bride who wears it will be sure to have all eyes on her on her very special day!
 

No matter what gown a bride chooses for her wedding day, it is most important that she chooses the gown that makes her feel the most special, and that is exactly what Luxe is here for! (:

Morgan's Must-Haves: What's New in Cinci!

Alright, brides. Let's talk NEW DRESSES! Although they may be gowns that are familiar to Luxe, they are fresh and new to our Cincinnati location! With our Reading Bridal District store quickly becoming a hot spot for brides to find the dress of their dreams, we thought it was only appropriate to add a little more sparkle to the already glamorous array of gowns! So... dun dun dun duuuuun... here they are! 


We will start off with this stunning Alvina Valenta 9508 gown because, well, THAT BACK! Your guests are sure to drop their jaws once they get a glimpse of this strappy, backless gown coming down that aisle. Not to mention the beautiful bride wearing it! 


Lazaro is known to create a jaw-dropping look and this just proves it! Lazaro 3003 is a classic fit and flair with a spicy pop of beading and floral lace is nothing short of stunning!


Hello, Beautiful! We think this Robert Bullock gown is to-die-for! Madeline's beaded cap sleeves and low back are a unique twist on a traditional bridal favorite and we could not be more in love! 


Our newest ball gown, Cadence, is the definition of perfection! With its lace bodice that trickles into the full skirt, and tiered tulle overlay, what more could you possibly ask for!? A simple beaded belt could add the final touch of sparkle and you are "I do"-ready! 

 We have yet to find something that screams simple elegance more than this Tara Keely lace sheath number! 2256 is perfect for any wedding from a beach to a barn! Not to mention she comes with a flawless little beaded belt that adds a perfect amount of shimmer and shine!


Talk about fun! We quickly fell in L-O-V-E with this Theia gown with its unique horse hair tiered skirt with a high lace neckline, and for good reasons too! It is the perfect combination of classic and modern! 


And to finish us off, a traditional Tara Keely ball gown with a low back! This neckline flatters any bride and is evened out with a fun, slightly risk-taking low back! 2356 is sure to knock any fiancé right off their feet!

Morgan's Must Haves: How To Get the Most Out of Your Bridal Experience!

Let's face it, ladies, every bride has dreamt of the day she gets to take all the people who mean the most to her to try on beautiful bridal gowns, in the hopes of saying Y-E-S to that one special dress! We simply want to make sure that each and every bride gets the experience that they deserve, and we are here to help them along in the process. So, let's talk about a few little tricks to ensuring you a wonderful and fulfilling day of bridal shopping!


First, do a little research! 


In our day and age, social media has completely changed the way that we prepare for our wedding. Pinterest is filled with tips, tricks, and DIY's for every type of bride, and we definitely recommend that you take advantage! Sites like The Knot and Wedding Wire are nothing but helpful when it comes to finding the perfect vendors for all your bridal needs! At LUXE, you can view every gown we have online, so you can come in already prepared for what you may find! It is always good to not only be prepared for the kinds of gowns you want to try on, but also the kind of stores you think you would like to have your experience at. Your consultant should love having photos and ideas thrown out before you start searching for that perfect gown! Any good consultant that cares about their bride will want to make sure they pull you dresses that will make you swoon, and showing them photos will only help your appointment go as smoothly as possible! So Pin your little hearts out!


Second, know your budget, and stick to it! 


Do not be afraid to set a budget for finding your bridal gown! Whether you are a bride wanting to find the perfect dress at a price that won't break the bank, or ready to spend whatever it takes to have the dress of your dreams, be honest and confident in what you are willing to spend. In addition to making sure you know your budget, make sure your guests are also up-to-speed when it comes to allowing them to suggest gowns for you! Your consult should never ever make you feel judged for your budget, and it is their job to make sure your experience is stress-free! 


Third, bring the opinions that are most important!


When you come out in a gown that you love, do you really want that grumpy second cousin that you met one time to tell you that she hates it and completely ruin your moment? Um, no ma'am! When inviting a loved one to join you on this special trip, make sure they will have your best interest at heart and will be nothing short of supportive and loving. We understand that your family and friends are important to you, and we only want to ensure that your experience is filled with tears of joy and not broken hearts! Just remember, YOU are the bride and YOUR opinion is what matters most! 


Fourth, be open and honest with your consultant!


Keep in mind that your bridal consultant is only there to help you make your decision. If you have a dress at another store that you are comparing all other gowns to, do not hesitate to let them know! A good consultant will only take into consideration that you need to find something to top that gown, and if you don't, then that other dress just may be THE dress! And that's OK! Details like this are important, and by keeping them to yourself you may be hindering your consultant from giving you the best experience possible. 


Lastly, trust your gut! If it's the one, then say YES!


When your fiancé proposed to you, was it anything short of magical? You probably got butterflies, huh? It was a perfect day, and the decision was easy. It felt right so you didn't hesitate once. Now, technically, there are other potential fiancés out there. So when they popped the question did you tell them that you love them so very much and they are definitely the one but you just need to check out some other fiancés just to be sure? NO WAY! Because in your gut you knew that this is who you want to spend forever with, and if your gut didn't fail you then it isn't failing you now! So, if it is screaming at you that this is YOUR DRESS, then trust yourself and know that there will always always always be other dresses, but you found the one and it found you.

Myths vs. Facts of Our Wedding Dress Consignment Shop!

Dreamy designer gowns at an affordable price sounds ALMOST too-good-to-be-true, but lucky for you, it exist! Enter, well..us! :)  Many of our brides and future-brides have had questions regarding shopping at a consignment bridal boutique. But, we are here to clear a few things up in a fun little myth vs. facts surrounding your bridal purchase at LUXEredux Bridal Boutique!

MYTH #1: Every dress has been worn/walked down the aisle.

FACT: No way!  In fact, most of our gowns have not been walked down the aisle.  
The majority (98%) of gowns at LUXEredux Bridal are sample gowns from high-end boutiques all around the country! Most of these dresses have simply been tried-on during bridal appointments.  Not only are we specific on which designer gowns we have in our boutique, but we are also quite picky on where they come from!  We are confident in saying that these beauties have come from very loving homes (surrounded by happy brides, giggles, and of course celebratory champagne)!

 

Other gowns come to us brand new, with tags! These gowns receive a pretty fancy discount for no other reason than the fact that we L-O-V-E a savvy bride!

 

And lastly, we have the gowns that have taken their first walk down the aisle, but with the craftsmanship and longevity of such a well made dress, it will certainly stand the test of time to be loved more than once! Take Antoinette by Anne Barge for example! She is as pretty as they come & in wonderful condition!  Do you really think Aunt Jane is going to know someone else wore that pretty little thing down the aisle? No way! You will be the only bride she can ever imagine seeing in THAT dress! Originally $7225.00, she is now only $3500.00!

MYTH #2: The dresses are not in mint condition.

FACT: Well that's a silly myth! In order for a dress to be hand picked for one of our stores, we require the gowns to be dry cleaned prior to finding them a new home! Sparkly beadwork, intricate lace, and sheen fabrics must be in pristine condition! If by any chance any of our gowns need a small repair, have no fear! We are ALL about full disclosure and love showing you ways to fix the tiny imperfections when they appear.  A few simple tweaks from a seamstress will make your gown aisle-ready!

MYTH #3: Your bridal experience will be less than that of the experience received from a store that orders your gown brand new.

FACT:  We highly, highly disagree! Creating a magical, bridal experience is our promise to you (the dreamy dresses are just the icing on the cake)! We believe in personal & intimate bridal appointments because this is your special day! This includes closing down the boutique for you and your loved ones! During your appointment, you work one-on-one with one of our trained and knowledgable bridal stylist who genuinely cares about finding THE dress for you! So, prepare for questions about your wedding details because we absolutely LOVE the sappy stuff! :) 

MYTH #4: All gowns are outdated and/or out of style. 

FACT: No ma'am! In order for a dress to be consigned with LUXEredux it must have been produced by its designer within the last five years. Some gowns may even be brand new and fresh off the runway!

MYTH #5: If you're looking for a high-end designer, you won't find it here. 

FACT: Wrong! We are extremely specific in regards to the designers that are accepted for consignment. Our stock is exclusive to high-end designers but at a price that won't break the wedding budget! 

We hope this clears up any uncertainty while looking for your perfect consigned bridal gown!  
We can't wait to spoil you soon!

When it comes to Star, let's just say she's a nice twist on a "classic" look. Any bride looking to feel romantic and dreamy on her big day is sure to fall head-over-heels for this sequenced spin on the traditional A-line wedding gown! 
Speaking of romantic and dreamy, let's meet our newest Jenny Packham family members! 
Lilya and Rose are sure to "WOW" you with their intricate beaded detail and classic sheath shape, not to mention their LUXE price!
Just incase you aren't overwhelmed with beautiful dresses yet, we thought we would share a few of our newest Ti Adora stunners with you, too! Brace yourselves, brides... these beauties can both be yours for under $1,000!
How can you not say YES to a gorgeous gown that doesn't make your wallet wince?!
Lastly, let's talk Tara Keely
Our Cincinnati location is home to this perfect satin fit-and-flare with a spunky horse-hair trim that brings just a hint of sexy to a classic, romantic bridal look.
