The Olsen Twins & A Wedding Dress

It's safe to say our minds are blown. That photo might just be so good our founder/creative director shed a tear or two when she saw this photograph on Vogue yesterday. Not only are there lace sleeves, a lace veil, romantic effortless waves in her hair, and those painfully chic Manolo's, but her BFFs are Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. We cannot handle the idea of that. Childhood dream come true! Actually let's be honest, it's still our dream to be their BFF. But now we can live through Mary Fishkin ;)

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen designed the bride's exquisite lace wedding dress and veil. Can we just talk about that veil for a moment? Now THAT is a veil. And we're obsessed. We're big cheerleaders of veils over here (assuming it fits you and your wedding day style), and this needs to happen with one of our Dress Theory brides soon! Have you ever seen anything so bold, yet incredibly timeless and classic? Full lace veils win! And that dress... We're getting more and more long sleeve wedding dresses in our boutiques, and we love that Mary donned long lace sleeves. Even for her outdoor June wedding. Proof you don't have to have a winter wedding in order to wear long sleeves on your wedding day! Thank you Mary!

If you love this wedding even half as much as we do, we should totally be best friends too. Or we hope that you'll at least come shopping with us for your wedding dress. Unless you have the opportunity to have your girls' Mary-Kate and Ashley custom design your gown. Then you should totally do that. We won't be mad at all, because obviously it's our dream come true!

If you aren't on a first name basis with the Olsen twins, we think you should try one of these gowns at The Dress Theory to create a similar look - Temperley London Florence, Rue De Seine Chloe, Sarah Seven Frenchie, Sarah Seven Bleeker, Temperley London Siena

Real Dress Theory Bride Ashley in Claire Pettibone

Photography by Kate Price 

One rainy, dreary Seattle day, a beautiful bride Ashley came in and shopped with The Dress Theory owner Camille. She told us all about her elegant, yet simple plans for a destination wedding in sunny Palm Springs. Not only did this destination wedding to the land of eternal sunshine sound like a dream, but the bride-to-be was incredibly calm, sensible, and stylish. Ashley looked gorgeous in her Claire Pettibone "Sky Between the Branches" gown. That is not an easy gown to wear! And takes a very special bride to pull off. And we think Ashley was one of those lucky girls. 

We were delighted to see Ashley's wedding on Style Me Pretty, and to make it extra special…. Their wedding photographer Kate Price recently found her own wedding dress with us at The Dress Theory Seattle. We love that! Congrats newlyweds, and thanks for being a stylish, beautiful #realdresstheorybride - We are so lucky to have all our incredible ladies! Real dress theory brides are the best brides! If you follow us on Instagram, that may sounds familiar… ;)


The Dress Theory
PS One of our favorite elements other than Ashley, her beautiful gown, and the newlywed love and happiness you can just feel in the photos, those incredible ivory, flowy bridesmaid dresses! We love bridesmaid dresses in off-white. It's so unexpected and a little edgy, but simultaneously so classic! If Kate Middleton did it, it cannot be more chic and classic… right?? But they also has this fun, risk-taking side to the gowns too! We LOVE it! And we love that Ashley felt confident in her own presence and style to put her bridesmaids in ivory, we hear so often that someone is scared the bride won't stand out unless she is the only person at the wedding wear some shade of white. Ashley is proof that's far from the truth! Any bride owning her confidence, style, bliss, and love will surely stand out on her wedding no matter what! Especially if said bride is rocking a Dress Theory gown ;)

New Arrival! Beatrix by Houghton NYC

Beatrix Gown by Houghton via The Lane

We're in love with our newest arrival, Beatrix by Houghton! The Beatrix is a hand-embroidered silk gown for our most stylish brides that are still looking for a relaxed look. Light, fashion-forward, and completely romantic, we're just obsessed with this gown! We think Beatrix would just as beautiful on the beaches of a tropical island as on the cobblestone streets of NYC's Meatpacking District. There was some serious temptation to try it on ourselves when we were unpacking this gown this morning. We can't wait to see a bride try this beauty on!

You can shop a few of our favorite pieces we think would pair perfectly with our latest arrival here -
