Amanda & Nick tied the knot a few months ago and Amanda was so kind to pass on a few photos from her wedding day.  This is such a gift!  We spend months walking though the gown process with our brides and only wish we could see each of them on their wedding day.  We adore receiving photos!

Amanda writes, “Just sending a couple pictures from my big day with my Jim Hjelm gown that I purchased from ya’ll! Thank you again for everything.  My dress and veil turned out perfectly.”

These include a fur with color, gloves, lace jackets with sleeves and boots.  Stay warm ladies!

It feels a bit like the holidays around here…the excitement is high, the anticipation is great and these gowns can not arrive soon enough.  We are always eager for our seasonal trunk show with Modern Trousseau.  Our fall trunk show is the best because it includes gowns hot off the runway, never before tried on gowns that are a must see prior to saying “yes” to your dress.  Appointments are already limited however we will try our best to have you slip into these gowns- even if its in the alterations studio!  Gowns arrive on Thursday morning…happy shopping!
