    Kate McDonald Bride

     

    Our big sister’s bride Arden, looked absolutely gorgeous in her custom Kate McDonald gown! Kind of a mix of two KMB styles, the dress was perfect for this graceful beauty. Arden actually placed this Heidi Elnora skirt on top of a Kate McDonald custom shortie. So for her reception, she was able to take of the ballgown skirt and have more freedom to dance!

  • Real Bridesmaids In Lulakate Harper Dresses


    Bridesmaid, It's Friday, I'm In Love, Real Weddings

    Classy and sassy, these real bridesmaids look sweet as pie in our Lulakate Harper dresses in Cement Shantung.

     

    The Lulakate Harper dress is a classic style that you can wear again and again. Very versatile, and especially in the Cement Shantung color. A neutral palette will always be on trend, even when you look at your wedding pictures years later.

    As you can see, the Harper dress is great for a spring or summer wedding, and in case one of the bridesmaids is expecting, she can always have our Harper dress made with the maternity skirt. For the fall and winter weddings, customize your Harper in our long skirts in any of our three styles, Brunch, Dahlia, and Maternity.

  • LulaKate helps make a Dream Wedding come true!


    Lula's Latest, Press, Real Weddings

    Those Brides out there who have only dealt with a few headaches or mishaps during their wedding planning will consider themselves blessed after learning of Jeanetta’s story. Months ago, LulaKate was contacted by Bella Bridesmaid in New York City to help make the dream wedding of Bride-to-Be, Jeanetta, come true. Jeanetta got engaged this past Spring and started planning immediately for a May 2012 Wedding. Many brides run into the unexpected– but soon after Jeanetta got engaged, she was unexpectedly diagnosed with breast cancer. Due to the financial, emotional, and physical implications of battling the disease, her wedding plans were put on hold.

     
    The Rachael Ray Show soon learned of her story and wanted to surprise her with the wedding she had begun to plan. When Rachael’s staff reached out to Bella Bridesmaid in New York City, Bella Bridesmaid turned to LulaKate to be the outfitter for her wedding gown! Words can’t describe what an honor and privilege it was to be a part of such a special day in Jeanetta’s life. She looked absolutely stunning in her Pam Bridal Alternative Gown. The entire day of surprises was celebrated and aired on The Rachael Ray Show’s October 25th episode. Check your listings for repeat airings and read Jeanetta’s full story by clicking on the photo below

    LulaKate thanks the many partners and people that joined together in making a strong and courageous woman’s dream wedding come true. It was such a special moment for everyone here to see how happy and beautiful Jeanetta looked when she stepped out to walk down the aisle.

    Jon Favreau of “Pod Save America” and Emily Black, an account executive at Sunshine Sachs, have tied the knot in a backyard wedding in Maine. Picturesque and serene, this gorgeous wedding had springy pops of color and darling details. And of course, the florals included pink and coral peonies and we are smitten!

    Various Lulakates!

    The best part of this real wedding for us is the beautiful and stunning smiles everyone wore. But we did enjoy seeing our Harper, Cason, and Emily dresses in long Dahlia skirts. Bride Emily had her sister and best friend in sassy stripes for a little variety! Emily said in the original article here, that she realized how big and full the skirt of her gown was and wanted dresses to have a little volume as well. The pleats of our Dahlia skirts give just that.

    Lovely bridesmaids in Merlot Shantung Lulakates…

     

    Stunning Bride Jordan Pearce put her lovely bridesmaids in various Lulakates in Merlot Shantung | Lulakate Bridesmaids | www.lulakate.com/blog

     

    Jordan and Her Lovely Bridesmaids

     

    Look at those gorgeous smiles! We were so excited to get these images from bride, Jordan. She put her lovely bridesmaids in various Lulakates, but kept the same color among them. We probably have to say that the Merlot color is definitely one of our favorites! That deep color stands out and looks ah-mazing on all skin tones. Made in our Shantung fabric, these Lulas look lovely!

    Simply Sisters Photography did an excellent job of capturing all those smiles and we wouldn’t have it any other way. We certainly loved how Jordan chose the different styles across her bridesmaids as it gives dimension and interest, and of course, was quite chic!
