Elizabeth + Andrew | Oscar de la Renta Wedding from Amy Deputy Photography

Oscar de la Renta | PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com

Elizabeth + Andrew’s traditional Jewish wedding at the National Museum of Women in the Arts was a beautiful and formal affair complete with marble architecture, a breathtaking chandelier and an exquisite Oscar de la Renta wedding dress.  This is a beautiful gown made of layers of silk with an all over swirl pattern detailed in beads with a lace trim. Thanks for sharing your special day Elizabeth + Andrew and congrats on your recent nuptials and the birth of your baby boy last month!

The Ceremony
We had a traditional Jewish ceremony whereby we were each walked down the aisle by both of our parents.  My Rabbi married us under a magnificent willow “chuppah” studded with orchids and fairy lights.  In addition to the traditional Hebrew prayers, he was wonderfully personal having met with us several times prior to our marriage.  He described in a charming and comical way how we met pointing out that in life, it is “who you know” that sometimes makes the difference.  I descended a magnificent grand marble staircase before walking down the aisle and in truth fear of tripping was my major source of anxiety.  A string quartet played while guests were seated and throughout the procession and recession. Andrew was nervous that when he stepped on the glass after our Rabbi concluded the service, it wouldn’t break.  All went exceptionally smoothly and we were overjoyed to be married!

The Reception
We had a formal wedding reception at the same location as our ceremony at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. It was drizzly outside but inside the Museum, all was perfect.  Everyone, especially Andrew and I  were joyful; love truly filled the air.  Our brothers gave wonderfully humorous toasts.  The dance floor was rocking and we took time to do the Hora, a traditional Jewish celebratory dance replete with the bride and groom raised on chairs.  As Andrew — and the large Boston contingency present– are AVID Red Sox fans, we had the band play “Sweet Caroline”. Oh what a night!

Elizabeth’s Dress Search
I tried on 22 dresses at a variety of different bridal boutiques…in the end it was between a Vera Wang gown and an Oscar de la Renta gown. I finally decided on my Oscar de la Renta wedding dress, it was indescribably gorgeous and the most perfect for my figure…I know I made the right choice – it was absolutely THE ONE!

How Elizabeth Felt in Her Wedding Dress
My exquisite dress made me feel truly “beautiful” and emphasized the how special this occasion was.  Being a bride in this dress was a “sublime” dream-like experience.

Why Elizabeth Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
I have decided to sell my dress in hopes that another woman will have the privilege of being married in the most elegant and magnificent of dresses ever created.  The original price makes it unattainable for most and I recognize that.  In addition, I want my daughter, should I be so fortunate to have one, to have the opportunity to choose her own dress and not feel obligated to wear mine.  My Mom preserved her dress for me but understood my need to choose my own in a very different style for a very different type of venue.  However, I was very sad that she did not keep her veil; I will have my veil available should a daughter or future daughter in law wish to use it.

The Ceremony
Our ceremony was on a perfect spring afternoon on the portico entrance to a country club. We were married under the roof where the roof came to a point and light came in from all sides, but the guests didn’t have sun beating down on them from above. My mom wove a rug in our wedding colors for us to be married on. A family friend officiated. Our procession song was “Olsen Olsen” by Sigur Ros.

The Reception
Our reception was inside the country club and we opened up to cocktail hour where we had bride and groom ginger themed drinks (we’re both redheads). We had a DIY photo wall with bar stools and ginger themed props of red hair, burly red beards and beard mustaches. Matt’s sister DJ’d. The first dance song was “You’ve Got a Friend In Me” from the Toy Story movie soundtrack. Our wedding favors were orange vanilla bean macaroons and purple rose petal macaroons from our favorite macaroon shop.

Kristen’s Dress Search
I tried on about 18 dresses. I picked my wedding dress because I felt most like a bride in it. It was beautiful, flattering, classic and not too trendy or revealing – all around just really special for a special day. The designer was Oscar de la Renta, and I’ve always loved him.  Plus, it was kind of an ode to him since the designer has passed away. It did take some convincing for me to keep the long train, and I’m glad I did.

How Kristen Felt in Her Wedding Dress
My dress made me feel awesome! I felt gorgeous and comfortable and ready to get married to the man I love. I felt pretty and like jumping up and down and being a pretty princess all night.

Why Kristen Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
Everyone deserves to be happy and I also feel strongly about doing your best to be green. I want to pass along my dress so that it can be used again and another bride can feel happy and gorgeous in a designer dress.

Amy + Brian | Oscar de la Renta Wedding from Ira Lippke Studios

Oscar de la Renta | PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com

 

For those of you hoping to achieve a couple different looks for your ceremony, reception and a night of dancing, today’s featured bride is a wonderful source of inspiration! Amy + Brian’s traditional Catholic church ceremony was the perfect setting for a beautiful shoulder swept lace bolero and satin sash. While at the couple’s Metropolitan Club reception complete with marble walls, chandeliers, gorgeous glass wear and candle light…Amy went for a sleek and fun, hair down, strapless look in the same Oscar de la Renta lace wedding gown.  We love that Amy managed to make a brief appearance in her traditional Korean wedding Hanbok too.  Perfect!

The Ceremony
We had a traditional church ceremony at an Episcopal church on Madison Avenue and we didn’t do a “first look” before the ceremony so the walk down the aisle was the first time we were seeing each other on the wedding day.  We had the church choir, organist and a string quartet that made the ceremony sound amazing.  We loved the traditional aspect of the church wedding.

The Reception
Our reception was at the Metropolitan Club, where we held the cocktail hour in the grand foyer with the large fireplace.  The guests were ushered to the third floor ballroom where we all had dinner and dancing where the entire room was lit by candles and decorated with orchids.  Our favorite part of the reception was the amazing band, the antiqued mirror dance floor and some amazing toasts from our bridal party.  We served chocolate milk shake shots, and had boxes of pizza delivered from the local pizzeria down the block, served with beer straight out of the bottle as a late night snack.

I tried on about 15-20 dresses with my friends and family.  I ended up stopping by an Oscar trunk show at Saks alone, and bought it on the spot.

Why Amy Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
I love my dress and I thought I would want to keep it forever as a keepsake for my daughters down the line.  But I realized that everyone has their own unique taste and I don’t want to see this gorgeous dress sitting in my closet for years and years.  Someone else should enjoy this gorgeous piece.

Gaby + Richard’s black tie wedding in Miami Beach was a chic and elegant affair complete with beautiful all white florals and a gorgeous French lace Oscar de la Renta wedding dress.  We love the romance and intimacy of an evening wedding…and the mixed + matched black bridesmaids dresses are a lovely touch for a night of cocktails, cake and dancing.  Enjoy!

The Ceremony + Reception
I would describe the overall aesthetic of our wedding day as cozy chic with a mix of modern romance. Both our ceremony and reception were at The Bath Club on Miami Beach, it’s a stunning historic building with antique architecture and spectacular vine-covered walls. It was the perfect setting for our wedding – romantic and timeless. We had a lot of greenery and candlelight. We could not have dreamt of a more beautiful day!

Gaby’s Dress Search
I probably tried on close to 100 dresses over the span of three months at almost a dozen different dress stores. I had a very hard time finding my dress because although many I tried on were beautiful, I wanted something timeless and not simply stylish. I was looking for something that I will love when I look at my wedding pictures forty years from now. The dress I chose is a designer classic with absolutely stunning hand stitched French lace. I knew the second I put it on that I would be walking down the aisle in it.
