Lindsey and Thomas Vonn on their Wedding Day!

Lindsey and Thomas Vonn on their Wedding Day!

I have been a Lindsey Vonn fan ever since she walked into White Couture in 2007 to shop for her wedding gown.  Officially Lindsey Kildrow at the time, she was as kind and she is beautiful.  It was our pleasure to assist Lindsey with her gown fitting.  Of course she looked great in every gown she tried on.  Once Lindsey tried on Judd Waddell’s collection, we knew she had found her dress.  Lindsey chose a gorgeous Judd Waddell ballgown and a fingertip veil with just a light scatter of sparkle by Erin Cole.  She truly looked like a princess in a fairy tale.  Her ivory gown was made of duchess satin with a touch of lace.  Lindsey’s wedding was held at the Deer Valley Resort; she was glowing like the night snow.

Fashion Friday | New York Shopping Spree | White Couture Designer Bridal & Tuxedo

Friday, December 4th, 2009

The team at White Couture wants to share a little bit of our shopping experience in New York.  Each time we go to New York we get to meet with our designers and attend runway show after runway show.  It sounds like a lot of fun, doesn’t it?  Well it is fun but exhausting at the same time.  We run; literally run from show to show.  We stop for an occasional pretzel from our favorite street vendors and then run to the next visit.  We study the new “look” of the season and determine which of the styles best fit our clientele.  That’s where you come in!  We think of our clients throughout our trip.  We want to be sure to bring you the collections that you’re looking for.  This season we were amazed with the number of ballgowns and modified ballgowns we saw.  Guess what?  Ballgowns are back baby!  Of course I happen to know this makes many of you happy.  We all want to feel like Cinderella but now, well there’s an excuse.  Ballgowns are making the come back we were all hoping for.  Styles come and go with pick ups setting the trend a few years ago, a splash of color in a gown is still popular, and now…ballgowns.  Wait until you start shopping the newest collection.  You’ll love it.  And it isn’t just the designers you would expect to introduce ballgowns.  They are all over the place.

We were lucky enough to travel with our good friend and fabulous photographer Pepper Nix.  She documented much more then runway shows.  So maybe it isn’t so much of a stressful trip but I didn’t lie when I said an exhausting one.  We boarded our flight in Salt Lake City at midnight and landed at JFK at 6:10 am.  We headed straight to the hotel.  Our room wasn’t ready so we made ourselves at home in the bathroom located in the gorgeous lobby of our hotel.  If I remember correctly it had six sinks and Pepper used 3 of them to spread out her luggage and “stuff”.  We “freshened” up and then we were off to our first show at 8:00 am.  Then off to the next at 9:00 am.  We were off again at 10:00 am.  Well we finally made it to show number four and Pepper now had a clear understanding of Bridal Market in New York.  She begged us to stop and rest so we finally agreed to let her rest in the lobby of the Essex Hotel while we attended the show.  After an hour we came back to get Pepper and we found her laying down and sound asleep in the lobby!  LOL! It would have been a great photo but of course she has rigged her camera so only she knows how to operate it.  I hope the description creates the picture for you.  Pepper we had so much fun with you.  We can’t wait for the next market.  Thanks again for traveling with us and documenting the trip.  We hope you had fun.

We invite every current bride, future bride, and friends to stop by and see us at White Couture.  The entire new Fall 2010 collection we just viewed at Bridal Market will be available beginning January 1, 2010.  The designers have guaranteed every piece will be in stores no later then April 30th!  Call us if you’re looking for a particular gown.  We’ll be able to tell you when it will arrive or if you can’t wait, we’ll borrow it from the designer and have it shipped for a private fitting just for you.  See you soon.

IMG_0208IMG_9984IMG_9986IMG_9990IMG_9996Meet Judd Waddell.  A modest and yet fabulous designer.  I will tell you when I opened White Couture and was researching designers to bring to Utah, I knew Judd was a perfect fit.  He accommodates everyone.  Bringing us strapless gowns, A-lines, fabulous ballgowns, simple silhouettes, satin, taffeta, and lace…Judd has it all!  One of my favorite things about Judd Waddell is his modesty and willingness to go the extra mile.  He really doesn’t have to…come on, he’s Judd Waddell.  Judd cares about his clients as do we.  I can count on Judd to provide the customer service that White Couture believes in.  When we call him with a design modification, build up request, or simple question he is always willing to help us out and you won’t believe it, but he actually wants to know more about the customer.  Judd asks all the right questions.  Where is her wedding?  What is important to her? Rush? -No problem!  Only Judd speaks these words.  You can count on him 100% of the time just like we can.  When you wear a Judd Waddell gown you can be sure he knows your name!  Oh yeah…I forgot to tell you about his new collection.   Judd has introduced Mother of the Occasion–WOW!  As if his bridal collection wasn’t enough, now he brings a great look for the sophisticated mom.

Everything about Judd is fantastic.  Well, take a look for yourself…don’t forget to tell us what you think and leave your comment for a chance to win!

Fashion Friday: New York Bridal Market

Friday, October 16th, 2009

NYC_New_York_Lower_Manhattan_and_Battery_Park_from_HelicopterNew York-Here we come!  Going to the Big Apple is one of the many things we look forward to each year at White Couture.  Twice per year our stylists have the opportunity to meet with designers and attend runway shows to determine the styles and collections we will be offering you–our customer!  The hussle of New York is great but imagine attending 20 runway shows in 36 hours.  That’s about what it takes to make sure we have looked at every new gown available.  We welcome your comments and suggestions.  Please let us know some of your favorite designers and we’ll be sure to check them out and talk about bringing them to Utah for you.  A this year’s market we’ll be visiting with new designers and those we already carry.  We’ll schedule trunk shows.  Do you know what a trunk show offers?  Trunk shows are an opportunity for the designer or a representative to travel with the newest collection and bring it to our studio for you to try on and enjoy.  There are many advantages to attending a trunk show but the top 3 reasons you should attend include:

1.  Special promotions and discounts are offered.
2.  Design modifications may be done with the designer in person.
3.  View and try-on every gown in the current collection.  Some may not be available at the studio on a regular basis.

Don’t let a trunk show pass you by.  Many trunk shows are offered throughout the year.  We invite you to attend those that interest you.

Be sure to follow our blog and leave a comment.  This month you could be the winner of a $100 Gift Certificate for your shopping pleasure!  Next week and during the month of October, Fashion Friday will bring you photos from the runway shows we attend, new designers available at White Couture, and designer interviews for a special post of  “meet the designers”.  Join us on Fashion Fridays for the latest trends.  Pepper Nix will be traveling with us at this year’s market to photograph gowns, designers and hot new trends!  Don’t miss these updates.
