There are some dresses that absolutely blow me away. Lace, chiffon, organza, silk, etc... you get it. I live and breathe wedding dresses (obviously). I have to admit though, Casablanca Bridal really knows how to create a gown with unrelenting beauty, grace, and enchantment. These amazing bridal experts blow me away with every design, but today I had to choose just one Casablanca Dress... style #2205. This gown is simply stunning. And by that, I mean it is fairly simple, but the understated beauty of it makes it even better than the extravagant dresses with all the bells and whistles. If you're all about looking beautiful but not overdoing it, this Casablanca Dress is the way to go.
This elegant gown is timeless. With it's intricate laced bodice, sweetheart neckline, flattering satin belt, and flowing chiffon skirt, brides of all shapes and sizes can rock it. It comes in ivory/silver, white/silver, and champagne/ivory/silver. Colors to flatter skin tones from porcelain to ebony. We were lucky enough to receive some beautiful photos of REAL BRIDES from Casablanca Bridal! I can hardly wait to show you these, so let's get started!
This is a beautiful wedding from our stunning real bride Sara Bledsoe! Every detail from her perfectly frosted/naked cake adorned with simple blush, pink, and romantic red roses to her stunning bouquet full of the same colors with subtle creamy yellow florals and rich greenery just comes together in perfect harmony.
Yeah... I mean come on. The perfect balance between quaint and absolutely dreamy is found here. The amazing Jackie Zurfluh photographed this gorgeous wedding and we are blown away!
Here we have our beautiful bride Maddisen. I'll let her tell you her Casablanca story in her own words! “I knew I wanted something with lace that was classy and not strapless. I tried on a couple but hated anything overly fitted. After a few moments of already feeling defeated, the stylist brought in this GORGEOUS dress and told me if I wanted we could get custom straps added on. The minute I put it on I knew it was the one as I walked out with tears in my eyes to show my mom.” There you have it, folks. Customization!

Okay ladies, let's get real. Wedding dresses can be SO dang expensive! It's a struggle because of course you want to look stunning and draw attention to yourself, as well as blowing your new spouse's mind. There you are, newly engaged, SUPER excited, looking at wedding dresses... then suddenly your heart drops into your stomach. All those 4 figure pricetags might even make you a little bit dizzy. Don't despair, though. Today on Gateway Bridal Blog we are going to show you that you don't have to break the bank to look beautiful. We're featuring a bunch of gorgeous wedding dresses under $600!
There are plenty of reasons to save your money when buying a wedding dress. You will have more money to spend on your honeymoon, catering, cake, flowers, bridesmaid's dresses, you name it! Plus, have you ever heard of a "trash the dress" session? They are SO fun. You can get a photoshoot done in your gown after the big day playing in paint, mud, or water! Look it up, they're super cool. Anyways, every dress under $600 that we're sharing with you today is gorgeous! Just because you're not spending thousands on a gown doesn't have to mean it's not beautiful. While I was going through to gather up gowns for this post, I seriously thought to myself "How are there dresses under $600??" Anyways, let's dive in!
This fit and flare gown features beautiful ruching on the bodice, a corset-laced back, and a stunning beaded "brooch" at the waist. So flattering and classic!

This beachy, Grecian gown features a darling natural waistband, soft delicate beading and flattering spaghetti straps.
One of my favorite gowns we carry, period! Not just my favorite of this collection of dresses under $600. Seriously. This elegant gown is an instant classic. The lovely lace bodice and the flattering v-neck blend seamlessly with the flowy chiffon skirt, making this a wedding gown for any season. Check out those delicate little lace cap sleeves. (Sigh)

Move over, Kate Middleton, today on Gateway Bridal Blog we're featuring a dress that's fit for a queen; Casablanca Style 2213! This royal gown is beyond breathtaking in every way, and we can't wait to share it with you!
This beautiful royal gown features a flowing, flattering a-line shape that will make any bride who wears it feel like a queen. There is a soft diamond cutout on the back, paired with delicate sleeves that drape effortlessly on the shoulders. What really makes this royal gown seem so... well, royal, is the intricate beadwork. The gorgeous beads adorn the entire bodice and back, and also trail down the length of the beautiful train. The beads are all sort of shapes and sizes, making this royal gown sparkle, stand out, and astound everyone around you. Swirls, floral textures, you name it. Mesmerizing. Free hanging beadwork around the perfectly placed waist give this dress the illusion of a gorgeous beaded belt that will flatter any body type. It comes in champagne/ivory/silver, ivory/silver, and white/silver.
This studio is beyond amazing. Rush on Metro is a studio that hones in the power of natural light. As you can see, it's absolutely perfect for this shoot, and showcases the dress and beautiful bride perfectly.
The dress is just as beautiful hanging up as it is on this gorgeous bride. Well... maybe not quite as beautiful, but you know.
The lighting blows my mind! That bouquet is total perfection, and the dress is a fairtytale's dream.
Her makeup is amazing. The combo of colors in that bouquet pop perfectly against the details in this royal gown.
That contrast is so edgy! I approve.
The dress speaks loudly enough, no need to go overboard with hairstyle. A classic twist with simple greenery? Perfection.
