It's Our Birthday! It's our second birthday. We can barely believe it! Two years ago today we opened our first boutique in Seattle. Three beautiful brides found their gowns with us that first day (Amy, Jessika, and Whitney) and we haven't stopped since. Our lives have been full of sparkly magic and love since. We've spent our day celebrating, but we wanted to share the birthday celebrations with you all too as we couldn't be here without all of you! Follow us on our Instagram for birthday giveaways! And seriously, thanks for all the love these past two years from Seattle to Nashville to San Diego. We love y'all xoxo The Dress Theory

Lace Heels for Your Wedding Day



Hooray it's Friday! We're not just dreaming of the weekend though, we've got lace heels and booties on our mind today. For some of us ladies there is nothing quite like a beautiful shoe. And if you fall into that category your wedding day is a lovely excuse to add a beautiful new, and very special pair to your collection! We love the idea of a lace wedding shoes as they some serious personality and style to your wedding day ensemble with an unforgettable look, but yet they remain ever-so classic and chic. In black, white, or ivory a pop of a lace high heel or bootie throughout the night is bound to put a smile on your face and any of your fellow shoe loving friends. If you had lace on your mind for your wedding dress but fell in love with a gown in a different fabric, wearing lace shoes is the perfect solution! Add a touch of lace and style all at once! Would you wear this look? We'd love to know!

Here are a few of our favorite lace wedding shoe picks -

New Arrivals - Lanai and Princeville by Katie May





We've started to receive our orders from the past NYC bridal market in April and it feels like Christmas every time we open a box with new samples! Getting two of our new Katie May samples was just as exciting! The first new gown we unpacked this week is Lanai. The Lanai gown is a blend of the original "Poipu" gown our brides have loved so much and the Princeville gown. Our new sample combines the beautiful corded alencon lace and body of the Poipu gown with the oblong triangle cups of the Princeville. Katie May created this gown after working with and listening to her brides. For all the brides who loved the lace and/or pricepoint of the Poipu gown but didn't find the Poipu cups the best fit for their body can rejoice! The Lanai gown is here! 


The Princeville gown has arrived as well! Our brides have been asking us for this beautiful gown since we first picked up Katie May's line. And we're so excited we are finally able to carry it! The Princeville gown is lighter and thinner than our Poipu gown, and it's constructed with seriously beautiful and unique exquisite French corded lace, french seams, and delicate eyelash scallop trim. Princeville feels so elegant and rich, yet maintains Katie May's signature sexy style! It feels perfect for an outdoor wedding overlooking a beautiful beach view. 

We're so excited the Princeville and Lanai gowns have arrived here at The Dress Theory Seattle! If you've been waiting to try these beauties on, give us a call. We can't wait to have you in for your appointment!

Rue de Seine's Newest Collection "Young Love" Preview








 {All photos by Jean Laurent Gaudy}

Rue de Seine's newest collection Young Love hits The Dress Theory boutiques this fall and these photos by Jean Laurent Gaudy are not making the wait any easier! From the moment we first laid our eyes on Rue de Seine's collection online late one night, we knew designer Michelle Corty's gowns were perfect for our stylish, bohemian brides. During our RDS trunk show we were lucky enough to see the beautiful new collection (and meet Michelle, she's as kind, chic, and talented as we hoped). The Young Love collection is whimsical, romantic, and stylish as ever and any wedding dress inspired by Paris is going to be one of our favorites. We hope you enjoy the small preview of the new collection as much as we do!
