Love all of the dresses! And I also agree that her dresses are soooooooo beautiful in person that pictures don’t even do them justice!

 

I feel like Anne Barge is such a classic designer but no one really ever mentions her? Do you girls notice this at all?

Like she doesn’t seem really mainstream bridal. Many other brides have asked about my dress and don’t even know who she is! Blasphemy! Why do you think this is?

@Topolino: Thank you!

I think Anne Barge dresses aren’t sold in a ton of places and you don’t really see her dresses in the print ads of bridal magazines, so I think maybe that’s why people haven’t really heard of her?  I hadn’t actually heard of her either until one of the bridal salons I went to had her dresses.  I actually had my heart set on a Reem Acra or Kenneth Pool dress but I couldn’t find a salon near enough to me where I could try their dresses on, so one place I went to had me try on a couple of Anne Barge gowns because of the things I described I wanted.

@Lillindy: I actually like your custom dress better than the original!

As far as AB being lesser known, there isn’t a ton of print advvertising and she doesn’t do the celebrity red carpet thing (Monique Lhullier, Marchesa, Vera Wang).  She is based in Atlanta, so there is a lot of PR here but many people still haven’t heard of her.  On the plus side, we haven’t our dresses coming and going.

Finally, some fellow Anne Barge bees!  I always thought it to be weird that no one talked about such a great designer like Anne Barge on the boards.

I don’t have the pics of me in the dress, but this is the one I’ll be wearing:

587 wedding dress

587 wedding dress

These pics don’t do the dress justice.  I actually think the dress is too big for the model.

Topolino – you look beautiful in your dress!  And the sash totally tops off the dress.  Don’t forget to show us pics of the wedding day:)

@tinas: That is beautiful!  I like it better on you than the model!
