Have we told you how much we love you? Our brides, our retailers, our industry partners – you guys are the best of the best. That’s why it makes us so happy to see our gowns in gorgeous media spotlights, whether on our favourite blogs or beloved hometown magazines; it feels amazing for our work to be recognized by our very favourite people: our community!
Turns out there was a lot of love to be had for badass brides with bold style in the last year. But that’s a great thing – and we love helping spirited babes everywhere find the perfect spotlight-worthy gown for their big day.
Here are a few of our favourite media and industry features from the last year. We are so honoured to be here, living the dream with you all!
Garden Party Elopement in Rocky Mountain Bride
RMB is an industry pillar, and when new issues come out, we pore over every page. We’re so delighted to see our Florence gown in a sexy, sensual editorial set on the grounds of Hatley Castle in Victoria, BC. RMB says “[Florence’s] puff-sleeves were a must for this English-country inspired look”, and we truly couldn’t agree more.
See for yourself by checking out the rest of the feature on pages 48 to 53 of the Vancouver Island 2022 issue. We’re obsessed.
Our Favourite 2022 Wedding Gowns From Laudae, Aesling, And Truvelle’s Newest Collections from Brontë Bride
Brontë Bride is a cornerstone of the Canadian bridal retailers market and we’re so delighted to have cultivated such a great partnership with them over the years. This gorgeous spotlight features LAUDAE and our sister brands Aesling and Truvelle.
Brontë shares, “In true LAUDAE fashion, all dresses are fitted mermaid styles with bold overlays that highlight a bride’s best assets. This year’s gowns — Marrakesh, Monaco, Santos, Tropez, Victoria, and Vienna — are six subtle homages to their namesakes that are full of personality.”
We love this. LAUDAE is a brand for brides with big personalities: those that favour the bold, and who are powerfully, authentically themselves. Brontë totally gets that vision, and that’s why we love this feature so much.
This Fashion-Forward Styled Shoot in Manchester is Serving Major City-Wedding Inspo! in Green Wedding Shoes
We seriously need to talk about this amazing photoshoot shared by Green Wedding Shoes. The Florence Gown shines again, this time in gorgeous images captured by Sam Sparks Weddings in Manchester, UK, and finally answers a lifelong question for us.
Do LAUDAE gowns go well with confetti? The answer is a resounding yes. We love Becca and Esme’s infectious smiles, and the style of this editorial shoot featuring Becca and Esme’s real love has us feeling all kinds of ways. Florence: truly perfect for every wedding day, from black-tie formal galas to the mean streets of Manchester.
We highly recommend you check out the rest of the feature and fall in love with Becca and Esme, just like we did.
8 Vancouver bridal designers for wedding dresses sure to stand out from the crowd by Allie Turner in Vancouver is Awesome
Vancouver is Awesome and us? We go way back. Mostly because we’ve been reading VIA for years (literally, years). This publication is a total mainstay for Vancouverites, which is why it’s so special to be included in this awesome list with a bunch of super talented makers in the bridal space.
Allie Turner writes, “Laudae's 2022 collection inspires visions of old Hollywood glamour updated for the modern woman. Think fitted silk gowns adorned in delicate buttons connecting the plunge neckline to the V slit at the front. Combining the open back and deep V's that they're known for, the Helios collection adds asymmetrical and bandeau bodices to the mix for a spark of something new.”
A spark of something new! We like the sound of that…
Real DIY Wedding at The Church on Main from Flower Carte
There is something so special about seeing our gowns in the wild: worn by brides, surrounded by the people they love, smiling that huge “just married” smile. That’s why this gorgeous real wedding featured on Flower Carte gives us all the feels.
Bride Savannah’s gorgeous wedding was full of personalized touches – from asking everyone to collaborate in creating her beautiful greenery arch, and making her own bouquet and boutonnieres with her bridesmaids! – so we’re not at all surprised to see Savannah choose our Florence gown for her big day. Flower Carte writes about Florence, “I don’t think we will be more in love with another sleeve!” Y’all, we must agree. And we must say: those heels? To die for.
Photo features like this remind us that LAUDAE is for everyone – no matter how big or small your wedding, how bold or minimal your decor, how rambunctious or dryly witty your personality, LAUDAE has one purpose: to help you look and feel your best. Good vibes only on your wedding day!
