When wedding dress shopping, every bride envisions something different for their wedding day. Some see a bohemian desert wedding. Others see a sunset beach wedding, a mountain top elopement, or a traditional church wedding. While 100 brides might pick the same dress, not one of those ceremonies, receptions, or wedding details will be the same. Each bride has their own vision, design aesthetic, and their own personal style. All these things plus how they style their wedding gown is an expression of their élan.
And, that right up there is one of the many reasons we love seeing the photos of a bride in her Edith Élan wedding dress. We don’t create the dresses for ourselves. We create them for the brides so that they can express their personal style.

As wedding dress designers, we know finding the right style for your wedding dress can feel overwhelming at times. Especially when there are countless articles and online quizzes out there telling you one thing or another. Even if you were to read every article or take every quiz, you could still be left wondering what it is you are looking for. It’s going to sound profound, but sometimes taking a glance inward reveals the answers.

Last week the bridal industry was rocked with news that the big box retailer missed a $270 million interest payment. Is this the writing on the wall for David’s Bridal?

"Simple, elegant, and relaxed." Those are the three words our Chicago bride, Annie, uses to describe her bridal style. And, we couldn't agree more!

Now here we are a year later, and she and her beau are celebrating their first anniversary!
