What Will Kate Wear | White Couture

Friday, June 18th, 2010

Kate and William

I was a big fan of Princess Di and now it looks like I think Kate is just as wonderful!  As soon as I saw her in the perfect cage hat and veil I knew she would be a hit.  So recently brides.com asked a group of designers to design a gown they think the next Princess should wear.  Reem Acra and Amsale were among the best and rumor has it she is considering one of the two.  So who will it be?  You decide.  Here are the sketches provided by two designers currently available at White Couture.  What do you think?

Reem Acra

Reem Acra for Kate

This ivory silk gazar A-line gown with a square neckline and long sleeves would feature French Alençon lace accents at the wrists, veil, and tiers of the gown. “The simple elegance of the gown reflects her personal style,” says the designer. “I used French Alençon lace accents to honor the traditional styles worn by previous royal brides, to whom Kate will undoubtedly be compared.” To view more gowns by Reem Acra, click here.

Amsale

Amsale For KateThe designer, known for her modern interpretions of traditional bridal fashion, would dress Kate in this subtly beaded Alençon lace gown that features cap sleeves, a romantic, ballerina neckline, and a cathedral length train. “The gown is reflective of Kate’s young, fresh style with a nod to tradition,” says Amsale. “The silhouette is elegant and refined, and the fabric is all about texture—corded lace, soft beading, and detailed thread work.” To view more gowns by Amsale, click here.

This week the event planners at Soiree Productions we were invited to enjoy an amazing dinner at Rodizio Grill.   Located in Trolley Square and American Fork,  Rodizio Grill can accommodate up to 350 guests for a wedding or rehearsal dinner.  With the flip of a button to red or green, servers come by your table and offer you tenderloin, chicken, mahi-mahi and so much more.  The menu is quite extensive.  Their salad bar is the best we’ve seen.  Full of salads, potatoes, black beans, rice, grilled vegetables and on and on it goes.  AMAZING.  Rodizio Grill offers a private dining area perfect for a wedding or rehearsal dinner and all for only $24.99 per guest!  The food was delicious, the service impeccable and the desserts were heavenly.  The team at Soiree Productions can’t wait to book an event at Rodizio Grill.  Oh, luncheons are only $16.99 per person!  To find out more about weddings, parties and other special events visit their website.  Thank you to Rick, Director of Marketing and Events for a great night at Rodizio Grill!

What is a Trunk Show? | White Couture Designer Bridal & Tuxedos

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

WHAT IS A TRUNK SHOW?

A trunk show is a special event, hosted by at White Couture, which features one designer. At our trunk shows, you will have the opportunity to view the designer’s entire collection, as well as preview the new collection that may not yet be in stores! The gowns are sent directly from the designer to us so we may display the gowns for one weekend.

A representative from the designer’s studio is usually present to consult with us and our brides and style your wedding day look. The representative works closely with us in her studio in New York and can help customize your gown to create a one of a kind look. These representatives are experts in fabric, fit and construction and can answer any questions about the gowns or the process on the spot.

White Couture always offers you a special promotion during a trunk show weekend.  Typically you can count on 10% savings or a complimentary gift with purchase.  Join us for our trunk shows and take advantage of these opportunities.  For a list of upcoming events, visit our website.  We look forward to assisting you!

Typical FAQ’s:

Do I need to make an appointment?

It is best to make an appointment to ensure that enough time with a consultant and representative is blocked out just for you.

Can I bring someone with me?

Of course! It’s a good idea to bring someone with you to help you choose your gown. Bring someone whose opinion you trust, and who can be supportive and helpful in your gown search. Since the trunk show usually only runs for 2 days, it is important that you bring whomever you need to bring to make your decision once you find your dream gown at White Couture.

Try to avoid bringing too many people. Shopping for a wedding gown can be an emotional and overwhelming process, and too many opinions can sometimes confuse you. If you want your bridal party or other friends to view your gown, or be a part of the process, consider bringing them to one of your fittings.

How is a trunk show appointment different than a regular appointment?

A trunk show appointment allows you to view the entire collection available from the designer. A trunk show is a great time to work closely with the designer representative to style your wedding day look, since they are experts in wedding styling and can suggest custom changes to perfect your gown for you.

A trunk show appointment is different than a regular appointment in that the gowns are only there for one weekend, so it is a great time to find and finalize your perfect gown!
