We are excitedly awaiting the arrival of Moonlight Bridal's trunk show next week! While we wait for all their gorgeous bridal dresses to arrive, we caught up with Stephanie Chin. She's one half of the creative duo behind Moonlight's designer wedding dress collection. She works alongside her sister, Valerie, to create swoon-worthy wedding gowns.
Moonlight Bridal has been creating dreamy wedding gown experiences since 1986. Stephanie says it is the fit, attention to detail, and feminine aesthetic that brides keep falling in love with. "As women," she says, "we understand what works best for women’s bodies and what makes us feel beautiful. We love feminine details like off the shoulder necklines, rustic lace patterns, and gorgeous trains that showcase a bride's best features." But what sets Moonlight Bridal apart from other bridal designers? Without a doubt, it's their ability to customize a gown to a bride's specifications. Moonlight Bridal probably allows for more customization than any other major designer. Whether it's a simple neckline change or the addition of a sleeve, it's their ability to customize each gown and make it the bride's own that sets Moonlight Bridal apart.
Of course, the current collection has no shortage of feminine details to fall in love with. Browsing through their couture pieces gives you a "garden on a summer's day" vibe. It's all floral lace and cloud-like tulle skirts. From whimsical, horsehair skirt details to delicate necklines, this is a collection that speaks to the feminine aesthetic. Their destination collection, Tango, features clean lines and eye-catching details. "Simple is far from boring," Stephanie says about these elegant, minimal gowns. "Each style features a different detail whether it be subtle sparkle, pockets, or a romantic lace swag sleeve that will have brides finding 'The One'"
Speaking of The One, we asked Stephanie for her words of advice to brides on the dress journey. "Have an open mind," she said. "When you enter a store like Suzanne’s Bridal you are working with the best! Suzanne is a master seamstress and knows all about fit. So you are in great hands. You won’t know how anything looks and fits on your body until you try it on. We find that a majority of our brides come in looking for a certain silhouette then end up picking something completing different after trying it on and falling in love. So don’t be nervous to try on that dress with sleeves or try on the gown with beading. It might be the one!"
All the sleeves and beading and whimsy you could ask for will be in the Moonlight Bridal trunk show arriving at Suzanne's Bridal Boutique on August 9th. The collection will be in store through August 11th with limited appointment availability. Be sure to contact the boutique or make your appointment online now.
