Hot off the presses! …Or should we say cold?
On Monday, InStyle broke the exclusive that we’re teaming up with Disney to design an Elsa-inspired wedding gown.
A softly-flared sheath gown, the Elsa features a sweetheart neckline, beaded swirls and layers of satin, tulle, glitter net and organza. A finishing Watteau train “captures Elsa’s regal appearance and her bold personality,” says our Chief Creative Officer Michele Piccione. The gown, part of our Disney Fairy Tale Bridal collection, will be available in early 2015.
Stay tuned for more behind-the-scenes sneak peeks and announcements!
Introducing our September cover bride, Rhonda!
Rhonda married her love Clinton on May 3, 2014 at The Mediterranean Villa in Arlington, Texas. She wore Style #470.
"Our wedding was all I prayed for and more," says Rhonda. Staying true to their relationship, the wedding was a family affair. The couple’s ceremony was conducted by Rhonda’s father, her step-father walked her down the aisle, their mothers lit unity candles, and the couple poured unity sand with their children to represent the beautiful family becoming one. "Clinton also gave the girls charm bracelets and asked if they would accept him as their father," says Rhonda. "They said ‘I do’ too!"
For their reception, Rhonda and Clinton walked in with African drummers and joined them in jumping the broom. The night was truly special, but one of Rhonda’s top moments was the first dance. “The first dance meant so much to me because Clinton has never been the dancing type, but he learned the dance and performed it well!” The unforgettable evening ended with a bubble send-off as the couple walked to their getaway limo.

Introducing our August cover bride, Jenna!
Jenna married her beau Travis on May 17, 2014 at The Foundry in New Orleans, Louisiana. She wore Alfred Angelo Style 854.
On their wedding day, Jenna and Travis relaxed separately: The girls drank mimosas while getting ready, and the boys received professional barber shop style shaves.
"It was finally time to put the dress on… I could not wait!" says Jenna. "My dress fit perfectly and definitely complimented my shape. It was so elegant with the intricate beading and lace detail. I added extra detail with beautiful and unique jewelry I had found to complete the look. I felt so beautiful!"
Jenna walked down the aisle to a string trio and an awaiting Travis. “We said our vows and kissed for the first time as husband and wife,” says Jenna. “It was magical.”
The reception was filled with memorable moments: The bridal party’s fun musical entrance, the couple sneaking off to eat their New Orleans-style menu and a few Mardi Gras Indians joining in on the energetic dance party. “It was a perfect end to a perfect day,” says Jenna.

Maleficent Movie Trailer: What A Great Excuse to See Our Sleeping Beauty Wedding Gown
The official trailer for Disney’s “Maleficent” was released this week, and it looks awesome!
This will be Angelina Jolie’s first on-screen role since 2010’s The Tourist. Nobody looks more stunning in a dark and twisted role than our girl Angelina. Am I right, ladies?
Adorable Elle Fanning will play Aurora, the Sleeping Beauty.
"Maleficent" will hit theaters May 30, 2014.
