Truvelle X Delica Exclusive Dress

Back in December, the amazing team at Truvelle granted us with the opportunity to design an exclusive dress that is only available at Delica Bridal. YUP- that’s right! A dress that you won’t find at ANY other shop. Even better, this project started out to reduce the amount of waste that happens in garment production. Using excess material from the production of gowns, we were able to create a one of a kind exclusive Delica dress. We had the chance to be a designer (how cool!?) AND help the environment (every little bit helps!)

Liv” from Bride.KC & “Trish” from Delica Bridal

Below is a little more information on the project.

FROM TRUVELLE:

Known for local production and thoughtful designs, Truvelle takes ‘handcrafted’ to a whole new level, recently creating ten exclusive wedding gowns unique to their top stockists. While the purpose behind the project was to find a more permanent solution to the unfortunate occurrence of waste associated with garment production, it consequently doubled as an opportunity for the brand to reward their best-selling shops. Each gown is individually designed by a Truvelle retailer, using the brand’s signature pattern designs and off-cuts from the carefully selected fabrics which make up Truvelle’s existing collections. 

Truvelle’s garment technicians made the final stitch on this project just before the holidays, wrapping and mailing off all ten gowns to their new homes in time for New Year brides to get the first look. Each retailer’s design can now be found within their store, available for purchase on a made-to-order basis.

We decided to name our exclusive dress after our our more stylish, upbeat sister, Trish (& yes, we do have another sister!) We wanted to name our gown after Trish, to keep it in the family, as it represents Delica’s story as a sister-owned boutique!

Our sister Trish with the “Trish” dress

Trish caters to the minimalistic contemporary bride who wants to look effortlessly romantic on her wedding day. The dress is curated to reflect our sister’s simplistic style and off-beat personality: the bodice blends the texture of the Carrall lace and the shape of the Alexandra to create delicate edginess, while the chiffon flowing skirt – reminiscent of Trish’s fun, natural charm – perfectly compliments the bodice. Our sister has her own story and we are grateful to have the opportunity to portray it in this dress.

Hayley Paige “Carrie” gown

In order to help you figure out if you could be one of those lucky brides who walks away with her dress, here’s a couple of things to consider:

Are you able to make decisions quickly or do you need lots of opinions and/or mom’s approval before making your final choice? Sample sales are a fast paced and busy environment. If you find your dress you will be paying for it in full and taking it with you that day! We also recommend limiting your guests to no more than 2 when shopping during a sample sale.

Are you a street size 6-10 and average height? Keep in mind bridal sizing is different than your street size and you will likely have to size up in bridal. Most of our dresses available in our sample sale are bridal size 10 or 12.

Is there a particular dress that you absolutely have to try on or have? It’s worth doing some research ahead of time so you can go in with some styles or silhouettes in mind! And if there’s something you have your eye on, come early! At our other sample sales we have had a line up of excited brides waiting to try on.

There are no wrong answers here, but sample sales can be a bit hectic and we cannot put a gown on hold. This means that when you find your dress, you have to be ready to make that quick decision!

Delica Styled Shoot

We don’t know how we have waited this long to share a styled shoot we did this spring! We all had such a great time bringing these different styles to life. We figured now may very well be the perfect time to share these photos for all the 2017 brides looking for inspiration! It features a few of our favorite bridal gowns and one amazing bridesmaids dress, all exclusive to Delica. We kept it all very minimal and clean with a standout bouquet you’ll have to scroll to see. Let us know your fave look below!

We couldn’t resist posting this photo again, it seems like all the vendors have Instagrammed this at some point. We spent all day obsessing over the flower crown!

There really is nothing better than twirling in a Hayley Paige ballgown. This photo is proof.

This bouquet was such a big part of the vision for this shoot. The incorporation of fruit spices up the average floral bouquet. Fabloomosity went above and beyond what we expected!

Yes, this dress is all rose gold sequins! Jenny Yoo does bridesmaids dresses right.

Introducing Daughters of Simone!

The arrival of our new wedding dress designer, Daughters of Simone, is highly anticipated so we thought we’d give you a sneak peek at what to expect when pieces from their line come this fall!

As a quick intro, this vintage inspired label captures the essence of our carefree brides who want something that’s unique and modern, but still incorporates a classic, romantic feel. The vintage lace is such a soft look, and the slim, draping silhouettes are so feminine. We can’t wait for our Delica brides to try these beauties on!

Fin

DOSFin

We’re in love with the low back on this dress! This slim silhouette features ivory eyelash lace and a higher neckline at the front of the gown.

Lu

DOSLu

The mix of chiffon and crochet lace on this off the shoulder dress is such a stunning look! It drapes so beautifully, and the train is to die for.

Jude

DOSJude

This is the two piece set we cannot get over! The fitted top with cap sleeves paired with the high waist skirt highlights the waist in such a flattering way. This gown features a cotton crochet lace.

Olsen

DOSOlsen

The unique side cutouts on this gown wrap around to create an amazing open back. This fitted dress has beautiful and delicate details, like two types of crochet lace!

Lola

DOSLola

Lola is everything you want in a long sleeve gown. It’s made of a soft crochet lace and features a plunging back. The perfect mix of modern and vintage. Also, how pretty does it look with a long veil!

Winnie

DOSWinnie

This is the other off the shoulder gown we will be receiving and is perfect for our brides who love an all lace gown! We adore the way this dress is fitted in the bodice and waist, and flows out at the bottom.

Dylan

DOSDylan

Dylan features a fitted bodice and modern racer back. The addition of this cotton, vintage inspired lace makes for a great mix of old and new!

Now that you’ve seen which DOS gowns we will be carrying, which are your favourites? Let us know! We can’t wait to hear what our Delica brides think of our new designer.

Bridal Gown Appointment Tips

We often hear from brides-to-be that the first time trying on dresses is nerve-wracking! So if you’re feeling that way, you’re not alone. With that being said, the first appointment should be exciting more than anything. It’s your first time trying on wedding dresses and it’s a very no-pressure environment, so have fun with it! Your consultant is there to help ease the anxiety and keep you from getting overwhelmed. They’ll be able to guide you through the appointment so you can worry less and enjoy more!

We thought we’d offer a few pointers for those of you shopping for your wedding dress. These are just our suggestions but our number one tip is to relax and not worry too much!

Delicablogpost-4

Delica Bridal

Tip 1: Keep an open mind for your first appointment.

We always recommend trying on different silhouettes during your first appointment. Many brides-to-be end up loving a fit they did not expect to – you never know!

Tip 2: Don’t rule a gown out by the way it looks on the hanger.

This tip goes hand in hand with the first. A dress can look completely different on, so don’t judge it based on how it looks on the hanger! It really comes to life once you put it on. Let your consultant know what you had in mind as they’ll be able to suggest dresses you might have missed.

Tip 3: Plan ahead!

This is a VERY important tip. Dresses take some time to come in, so planning ahead will make the experience less stressful. Each designer is different, so ask your consultant how long it will take for your favourite dresses to come in. We recommend giving yourself around 9 months to shop for your dress!

Tip 4: Take photos!

At Delica we encourage you to get a friend or family member to take photos of you in your favourite dresses. Brides find this really helpful when they’re deciding between gowns. Also, dolling up your favourites can help too! If you envision a veil, hair wreath, or any jewelry, let your consultant know. Are you thinking hair up or down? This can be the final touch to feeling like a real bride.

We hope these four quick tips helped and made you look forward to trying on dresses! Have fun shopping!
