Lovella Loves… Statement Sleeves This year, bridal sleeves are anything but ordinary! From a puff, bow, or a detachable sleeve, the options are endless! Sheer sleeves with lace detailing provide the illusion of a long line, while still showing skin. Structured or draped sleeves create an eye-catching look that is trendy and highly sophisticated. A lot of our gowns here at Lovella Bridal have detachable sleeves. Being able to change up the look from ceremony to reception without buying a new gown is a major bridal win! From designers such as Ines Di Santo, Martina Liana, Berta and More!

A Note From the Bride JULIA YOU WERE AMAZING! I can’t brag enough about you and your exceptional service. I walked into lovella as my first ever bridal dress experience and walked out with a dress in mind. Even though I didn’t have an appointment and just walked in, the front desk was so accommodating they set me up with Julia in a couple of minutes. I showed her the style I thought I originally wanted and ended up choosing a BEAUTIFUL Berta dress that looked nothing like the one I originally imagined. She has such an amazing vision and she points things and details out that you wouldn’t have otherwise noticed. She is so sweet and will be patient the entire time. This store has extremely amazing and they have so many beautiful gowns to choose from that you will walk out feeling like a bride in at least […]

At Lovella Bridal every single day we have the honor and privilege of dressing women for one of the most important days in her life! In August of 2018 Ashley Iaconetti came in-store to try bridal gowns on and on that day our very own Nayri, Wedding Fashion Expert selected several gowns for Ashley to try on. Ashley opted for a classic natural waist Alençon and Chantilly lace ballgown. It has a subtle layer of sparkle tulle under the lace layers which adds a lovely touch of glamour when it catches the light. Over 30 yards of lace and nearly 100 hours of labored love went into collaging and hand sewing the lace to create Ashley’s Ines Di Santo wedding dress. “After meeting on the first season of Bachelor in Paradise, Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon became best friends — but it took years for them to find solid footing as […]

On Trend… Minimalistic Gowns As stated in Harper Bizaar, “Princess Eugenie and the Duchess of Sussex both opted for gowns that were void of lace and embellishment—and a rise in bridal minimalism soon followed, with designers showcasing simplicity and all things unembellished.” There has been a rise in demand for a clean, classic wedding gown that we have been seeing. Less traditional brides love the idea of walking down the aisle in a simple clean gown, while some choose it as a fun outfit change for their second reception dress! We are bringing you some of our favorite minimalistic clean gowns from designers such as Ines Di Santo, Rivini, Leah Da Gloria and more!

On Trend… The Reception Dress! We love the idea of changing into a second wedding dress after your cermony. Changing dresses after the “I dos” and before the toasts first became a trend because brides wanted to honor their religious beliefs and feel sexy on their big day. Putting on a dance floor-friendly dress after feeling somewhat restricted in a ceremony gown is a feeling unmatched by nearly any other. It’s also super exciting to see the faces of all your guests in complete awe when they weren’t expecting another gown! Check out down below some of our favorite gowns that we think would make a great reception gown! From our designers such as Berta, Ines Di Santo, Leah Da Gloria and more!

On Trend… Skinny Straps! We love this trend for two reasons: A bridal gown with delicate straps has a sexiness of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal win! As cute as it is, not many brides can wear a strapless gown because lack of support. You also might be worried about the gown staying up on you throughout the night. It can be quite tricky, However with a skinny strap you will feel more supported and comfortable during your big day. A skinny strap is the way to go for so many different shapes and sizes! It also happens to be a huge trend this spring/summer 2020 fashion week! We are sharing with you are favorite skinny strap gowns that we are obsessed with!

A Note From the Bride Angie my ANGEL There is no other way to start this review. Professionalism, expertise, compassion and a heart to see others happy and completely fulfilled. I had no idea what I was about to experience when I walked through the doors of Lovella Bridal. I walked in nervous, worried and a little uneasy about some information I had received. Angie had no idea of this. She looked at me and said “Let’s go and what ideas/looks did I have in mind. I showed Angie some pictures and she quickly said okay .. relax, let me do the work .. I understand just what you are looking for. Now mind you.. I’m am very picky and indecisive.. an extremely difficult trait to please. Angie brought me the first dress and I cried. It only got better from there as each dress up-staged the last, while […]

A Note From the Bride Dear future Brides, If you already tried so many bridal stores, but couldn’t find anything you love to wear or if you are considering trying many wedding dresses to choose the one, please go visit Lovella Bridal and meet Angie first before you make a final decision! She will help you choose the best dress in the best style that will fits your body perfectly. This bridal store made my wedding preparation so happy and smooth. Since ordering wedding dress usually takes 6-8 months, choosing my wedding dress was the second thing I did right after my husband and I chose the venue. Dress shopping was very fun but at the same time a bit frustrating because I was nervous thinking whether I might not be able to find the one I really fell in love with or because sometimes the experiences were kind of […]

A Note From the Bride What an amazing experience! I went there with my mom, my grandma and my soon to be mother in law. We were helped by Julia, who was the most incredible woman and wedding dress expert. She asked the best questions about my fiancé and I, to know what dress would be perfect. She pulled out a bunch and I tried on so many. I loved most of them, their selection is quite elegant, luxurious, and ENORMOUS! I recommend them over any place in the area. I went to a few others but the service was meh and the dresses were not as elegant with a bigger price tag. They were patient and didn’t bother us about paying for the rest of the dress by calling and reminding us to pay, they waited and we payed. They are holding my dress there for FREE until my […]
