As every bride is unique so too is every wedding dress. We are sure that if you can find true love with your fiancee then you can and should find your true dress. Here is some information on dress styles and some vendors we recommend to help you find your true (dress) love!

 

 

What Silhouette are you? Silhouette is the basic shape of the wedding gown. There are 5 main styles of dress...

Ball Gown: Like the Disney Princesses every Lionscrest Princess needs a fitted waist line and full skirt. This style of dress has come back in popularity over the past few years and works well with many different body styles. Who doesn't look good with a tiny waist!

Sheath or Slip Dress: This style follows the line of the body and is form fitting. Many destination brides choose this style of dress for ease of transport when flying. For Lionscrest it works great for the girl who is looking to get out their and do a little hiking to get the best mountain views. Typically you do not see a train with this style which makes bustling a breeze.

Empire: With a high waistline that typically rests right under the bust line this style of dress again works well for most girls. Like the Ballgown the dress flows out from the waist but is not as full. This dress is one of the most popular styles that we see at Lionscrest. It offers a little bit of everything. Classic Bridal elegance, flattering to the body and moves well indoor and outdoor.

A-Line: An A-line shape has vertical seams flowing from the shoulders down to a flared skirt. The A-line dress is flattering on almost all bodies. The long lines create the illusion of height on a shorter body, as well as slim down a rounded figure. The full skirt of the A-line can also hide a larger lower body, or create the illusion of curves on a narrow frame. This dress is perfect for outdoor ceremonies as they typically offer a small train for effect but one that won't leave you hauling back half of the pine cones!

Mermaid: This style is fitted on the body and then flairs out around the knees. We see this style growing in popularity due to the hit TV show, Say Yes to the Dress on TLC. While this is the new "it" dress style, make sure it works for your body. The mermaid cut is not for everyone and is best worn by slender figures, both short and tall. This style is madeto hug the body and show every curve.

 

 

 

 

Whatever style you choose make sure you choose the dress that speaks to you and shows you off for your special day. You want the dress to bring our your best qualities and really make you stand out. Just make sure you keep in mind the season you are getting married, budget you have set and of course the style that compliments your womanly figure. No matter what make sure that your dress makes you feel beautiful, comfortable and confident. If you are not then you should keep looking!

 

Looking for the perfect dress? We recommend you contact one of our amazing dress vendors.

A note from Benjamin with Alive Studios...

 

Alive Studios initially met Beth and Jake at a wedding show held at
Lionscrest Manor, where they eventually choose to have the wedding.  From
the moment we met the couple, I knew working with them would be amazing.  We
choose an old abandon train yard for their engagement shoot, which turned
out to be perfect.  Beth's red hair  and the fall colors worked wonderfully,
and Jake seemed totally at home amongst the ancient trains.  It was during
this initial shoot that we started to see the magic love between Jake and
Beth.  One of two of the images made it directly to our portfolio.

 

 



Early spring storms threatened Beth's desire for an outdoor ceremony, and

Jake even volunteered to help Lionscrest Manor clear the snow if possible.  But

that wasn't necessary, as mother nature blessed the couple with a beautiful
weekend in-between two massive storms.  A sixty degree day with light winds
and beautiful sun allowed us to be outside for all of the photos, as well as
the ceremony.  Working at Lionscrest in the spring is such a delight, and as
you can see from the photos, Beth and Jake were feeling it for sure.  An
amazing ceremony with wonderful people supporting them, perfect weather, and
love everywhere!  Later, up on the bluff above the Manor, Beth and Jake
celebrated their first few moments of being married while capturing a number

of exquisite photos as the sun slid down behind the mountains.

 

Back inside for a totally rocking party, amazing food, and excellent music.

Alive Studios thoroughly enjoyed the details which Beth obviously though
about; from amazing color coordination and decorations to unique touches of
class.  A truly excellent wedding all around, and the beginning of a
wonderful life of marriage for Beth and Jake!

Tara and Stephen shared their love for each other this spring as they joined two hearts together as one. They managed to radiate their powerful devotion, so much so, that they challenged Mother Nature's grip and melted the snow and our hearts!

 

Sporting dapper argyle socks and rocking shades, Stephen and the guys were swagger ready.

 

 

 

Tara and Stephen's wedding party has invented a new modern version of the "Tunnel of Love."

 

 

 

In a palette of plum and charcoal grey the event brought in a modern sophistication while keeping a witty and fun edge.

 

 

With wide smiles and darling whit they charmed us all and let their personalities shine through in their amazing photos captured by the talented Susan Armitage of Armitage Photography.  

 

A Note from Susan- It was great working with Tara and Stephen for their March 2nd wedding at Lionscrest Manor!  Tara and Stephen were married surrounded by a great group of family and friends.  Tara had some really fun photo ideas she shared with me that we were able to incorporate into their wedding day.  It's always fun to work with a couple that is open to creative photo ideas and they were the best!

 

 

 

Tara and Stephen were even kind enough to review us and a few of their choice vendors so that other couples can get a sense for their experience. To see their reviews on Wedding Wire click here.   

 

 

Cheers to Tara and Stephen on their nuptial bliss! May each day, each week and each year you share together overflow with joy, wonder and above all L-O-V-E!
