BHB Designers: Ivy & Aster

August 6

All of the women at BHB are so excited with all of the change in the air at the shop; it's been quite an exciting summer with some upgrades in our shop, new designers, and fun trunk shows! We are thrilled to keep this excitement going with the introduction of our newest designer!

Does your Wedding Dress Pinterest board consists of flowing silhouettes, sweet looks, and whimsical detail? If so, you will absolutely love one of our newest designers, Ivy & Aster! Started by best friends who just couldn't get wedding dresses out of their minds after their own weddings, Ivy & Aster's dresses are "born from happiness, laughter, love and a meticulous desire to perfect the detail". And you can tell. We were blown away by the designs and the love that the dresses just emulated from the runway this past spring! We knew they would be a great fit to the BHB family and are so excited to bring these dresses to our Houston brides! We'll have our dresses by early fall but are so excited to be able to introduce them to you all with our trunk show this weekend, August 7th & 8th! Give us a call at 281.681.3430 to schedule your appointment; they're going fast! 

Make sure to check out their website, which is full of gorgeous images and the story of Ivy & Aster, and follow them on Instagram - @ivyandaster!

Happy Thursday!

       

BHB Designers: Claire Pettibone Romantique

July 23

Here at Brickhouse Bridal, we love stories! We love hearing all about our brides & their fiances, their stories, and their plans for their new life together. So it's not a stretch that we would fall in love with a designer that is all too passionate about stories herself! She is a bridal design sweetheart who uses each collection to tell a capturing story and is known from the runway and celebrites to a following of everyday brides seeking to wear her designs on their big day. So needless to say, we are so very excited to partner with Claire Pettibone and bring her gorgeous gowns to our lovely Houston brides! BHB will be carrying her Romantique Collection which is the perfect look for the boho chic bride wanting something effortless and stunning at the same time! We fell in love with the lace, fabrics, and delicate details that portray a "vintage romance with an enchanted bohemian spirit". Our dresses from Romantique's new Into the Sunset Collection will be in the shop by early fall, and we're also excited to add to our new collection from her Bohemian Rhapsody Collection. 

But we couldn't wait until then for these gorgeous gowns which is why we are so very excited for our Claire Pettibone Trunk Show which will be next weekend, July 31st and August 1st! You won't want to miss the opprtunity to see these dresses and talk to our wonderful CP stylist, Angela! Make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see some sneak peeks and give us a call at 281.681.3430 to schedule your appointment today!

The White Dress Trend - 175 Years Later

July 2

Have you ever wondered where the "wearing white on your wedding day" tradition began? Why not a deep rich color or a print? If you do a little research, you will find that we can thank Queen Victoria herself for a bridal trend that has reigned supreme for the last 175 years! Red was actually the bridal color when her wedding to Prince Albert was approaching, but Queen Victoria was a challenger. She wanted to wear a dress that was strikingly different from the norm so of course she hand picked a white lace gown adorned with a floral wreath instead of the expected crown. Some of our brides today are challenging the bridal norms themselves and opting for more muted colors, daring silhouettes, and striking details! We are seeing more and more color on the bridal runway, and while it is certainly an incredible look that we LOVE, we don't think the white/ivory gown is going anywhere soon! That being said, we are continuing to cultivate handpicked bridal trends throughout our collection that are sure to appeal to the traditional bride, the one that is drawn to the runway trends, and finally the bride that is happy somewhere in the middle. Be sure to stay tuned throughout the summer as we announce a few new designer friends of BHB as well as trends!
