We had the pleasure of being a chapter in Bethany and Justin’s wedding story in August of last year. We think its safe to say her fairy tale chic look went above and beyond! This princess bride was the fairest of them all in her fitted House of Wu gown. Bethany stepped outside the box and ordered her vintage lace wedding gown in the light gold option and it suited her remarkably! Many of the gowns we have in our stores come with color options available aside from white and ivory, such as champagne, blush, and light gold. Although this look is not every bride’s vision it certainly does add a simple yet alternative vibe to any bridal look and was a great touch for this story book wedding.
Bethany’s gown not only had an old-timey hue to it, it also had very elegant elements as well. With a graceful lace applique strap and V-neck this gown compliments every shape and helps to keep brides feeling secure. The appliques continue to lay gently down the length of this gown on top of a skirt of soft gold tulle. Also let’s not forget the corset in the back with a satin ribbon which gives the gown a royal feel, and gives brides a great figure. We love this gown for its ability to be so grandiose without being a full ball gown or being over the top. This fanciful matrimony took place at Old Town Wedding and Event center in old town Peoria. http://www.oldtownweddingcenter.com Bethany wrote to us about her venue: “We decided this was the venue the second we set foot onto the grounds. We had been to a few other places in Arizona, but they were really pricy or all inclusive, which we didn’t want at all. Old town has lots of options and can supply as much or as little as you want. We used their catering and DJ, but supplied our own cake, decor, photographer, and minister. We lived 3 hours away from Phoenix during our planning, and they understood we couldn’t just pop down to answer questions or sign paperwork. They worked around our schedules and were always able to squeeze us in when we were in town for the weekend.”
She also had great things to say about her cake vendor and her photographer!
“We did our cake from a mom and pop cake shop called Baker Wee Bakery. http://baker-wee.com They were a joy to work with and loved having a challenge with our cake. They also worked with us being out of town and did some meetings for our cake over phone. They were very receptive of our wants and our cake was perfect and delicious.”
“Our photographer was Erika Palomares-Ulloa of E.Ulloa FA Photography. Her Facebook page is here: https://www.facebook.com/E.UlloaFAPhoto?fref=ts&ref=br_tf
and her webpage is here: http://www.glendalephotos.com/#!/HOME
She was an absolute joy to work with. She really took the time to get to know us and her photography reflected that. She loves doing new things and taking artistic shots of details. We loved working with her.”
Bethany also took advantage of the special discount we give our brides for their bridesmaids dresses. We sell bridal and social occasion dresses and if your bridal party comes in different shapes and sizes we can order any size from 0-32! Call to make an appointment to see how we can help make your special day perfect!
“Aside from my own purchase, three of my five bridesmaids got their gowns from Strut, and they looked perfect. They all loved their gowns. My husband was speechless and cried when he saw me coming down the aisle. When we were alone he couldn’t stop telling me how perfect I looked and how lovely my dress was. Our wedding day was perfect for us and my gown looked right at home in the vintage setting. I can’t thank you all enough for the time you took to get to know me and help me pick the perfect dress.”
