Dress Theory: "Alberta" by Anna Maier

Alberta by Anna Maier has consistently been a strong gown for both our Alabama Bridal Shop and our Tennessee Bridal Shop. The unique rose inspired lace pattern screams different without being too far from traditional. Since arriving at our Alabama Bridal Shop, we have loved pulling this amazingly sexy bridal gown.

Alberta is a lace gown that easily stands on her own, so we tend to say less is more when styling her! For the ceremony, we suggest a long Spanish tulle cathedral veil like the Arabia from Toni Federici and a simple pair of drop earrings. For the reception, we tend to say to shed the veil and dress Alberta up with a fun statement necklace or a beaded sash.

Our Nashville Bridal Boutique Owner and White Dresses Co-Founder, Kara Leonard, weighed in on why she thinks Alberta has consistently been a favorite of our brides at both our Nashville Bridal Shop and Huntsville Bridal Shop.

Alberta consistently seems to be one of our best performing lace gowns due to the uniqueness of the lace. We absolutely love the gorgeous lace pattern and believe the versatility of the lace can be used at a lot of different types of weddings. At our Alabama Bridal Boutique, we consistently see Alberta chosen for a more modern-style wedding or we see brides bringing a more southern feel to the gown by adding a bow. We have also seen this gown on the beach and think it works perfectly for that venue. Our Tennessee Bridal Boutique seems to do well with the gown for a more rustic or warehouse style wedding. The versatility of the gown makes it so amazing as a piece to house in our bridal shops and the fit is literally so perfect that brides can’t overlook it! Without a doubt, this gown is one of our absolute favorite pieces.
