Miranda Lambert and Brendan McLoughlin Got Married!

As many expected, 2019 started off quite beautifully in terms of weddings and Miranda Lambert and Brendan McLoughlin were among the first to tie the knot this year.

As you’d imagine, their wedding was really beautiful – and although they kept it a secret until after it was done, we still have some inspirational ideas on how everything went down.

What are some of the most beautiful parts of Miranda and Brendan’s wedding? Here’s everything you definitely want to know:

·       The couple’s relationship story is quite mysterious; even for the die-hard fans, Miranda’s wedding came pretty much out of the blue when she announced it this Valentine’s Day. Who is her husband? Well, Brendan is an NYPD officer – and a very good one for that matter. He has won actual competitions like the NYPD Keith Ferguson Memorial 5k Brooklyn Bridge Run.

·       Brendan dabbled a bit in modeling before joining the force, but the last time he updated his profile on his modeling agency’s page was in 2011 – so it is quite fair to say that this is in his past.

He’s a good dancer, as evidenced by this 2015 video featuring him and another NYPD officer doing the “cupid shuffle”.

·       Not much else is known about Brendan – but some sources have confirmed that he is a new dad (not with Miranda, but with someone from a previous relationship – meaning that he and Miranda haven’t dated for very long before tying the knot).

·       What about the wedding? Well, as we mentioned, it was a secret ceremony, same as many other celebrity weddings as of late (Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth being one recent example). Even with all the secrecy, pictures have been released and, oh my, how stunning the bride looked! Miranda wore a superb lace wedding dress, proving that although Meghan Markle-like simplicity is in right now, classics like romantic lace can never go out of fashion.

·       As for the ring, she showed it off publicly and the world fell in love. The stunning piece is estimated to be worth approximately $20,000 and it features a beautiful vintage design that goes perfectly well with Miranda’s well-known classy style.

4 Mistakes to Avoid When Choosing Your Wedding Dress

Sara Connor Wedding-Sara Connor Wedding-0096.jpg

Your wedding dress is one of the most important pieces of the puzzle that forms the most beautiful day of your life. Of course, you want to choose a gown with the very best design, fabric, and detailing for this amazing event!

What are some of the mistakes you shouldn’t make when choosing your wedding dress?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

·       Relying on 100% online providers. We know it’s tempting to mark this off your to do list with a click or two on some website – but this dress is not a pair of sneakers you can buy and then see if they fit. This is the most important dress of your life – and a bad dress choice can make you feel miserable on your Big Day. Take your time with dress buying.  It’s not a race! Go to a store and try on different designs so that you can find the one that fits your body and style down to the smallest detail.

·       Not being open-minded. Yes, we know you have your heart set on a very specific trend you love – but truth be told, real-life try-ons might feel very different than what you imagined. Our advice? Be open to what the wedding gown boutique assistants suggest – they have seen a lot of brides and they know what suits each type of woman. You’d be surprised at how great their suggestions can be!

·       Bad undergarments. We’ll let you in on a little-known secret: bad undergarments can impact your entire bridal look. You might not be able to know exactly what type of undergarments you need when you are still shopping around – but be sure to ask for recommendations when trying on gowns and be sure to wear the right ones during your actual fitting appointments. They can make all the difference in the world!

·       Trying to make everyone happy and forgetting about yourself. This one’s far too common, sadly. Yes, you should take advice from your wedding dress shopping entourage – but that doesn’t mean you should lose your own vision and style in the process. If a dress feels like the one, then that it should be, no matter what your sister, your mom, or your in-laws think! Remember – it’s YOUR dress!


Have you found the perfect wedding dress? If you’re still searching for the right one, be sure to come and visit Savvi NC. With the superb range of designer wedding gowns in our store, it is impossible not to fall in love with at least one of them!

What Should You Do with Your Wedding Dress after the Big Day?

Buying the perfect wedding gown is a top priority for most brides. That makes perfect sense because this is one of the most special days of your life, and it’s only expected that you want to look stunning. With many dresses taking 9 to 12 months to order, making this a top priority is completely logical.

As you pick your dress, you might have a little voice inside your head asking, “Should I be spending this much on a dress that I wear only once? What am I going to do with this dress after my wedding?” Well you can put that little voice at ease.  We have some great ideas for what you can do with your dress after your Big Day – so read on to find out more.

·       Preserve it. Proper wedding dress preservation will help you maintain your gown as beautiful as it was on Day One for years and even decades after the wedding itself.  Ideally, you want to leave this in the hands of a professional wedding dress preservationist because they know exactly how to clean the dress without ruining its intricacies, and they also know how to fold and preserve the dress in a beautiful way that will keep the gown perfect for the many years to come. Why preserve it? Your wedding gown can make for wonderful pictures with a daughter or niece down the road. Maybe one day, your daughter might even want to wear it down the aisle!  Even if she opts for her own dress, imagine the wonderful memories you could have of seeing your daughter or niece trying on your wedding dress!

·       Upcycle or repurpose it.  Check out Instagram and Pinterest, which are chock full of ideas for upcycling wedding gowns.  Some great ideas include creating beautiful and elegant throw pillows, quilts, and purses from used wedding gowns.

·       Sell it. If you want to recover some of the money you spent on the wedding dress, selling it as a gently used gown is a very good option. Not only will you have some extra cash (to use on your honeymoon if you don’t leave right after the wedding, for example), but you will also help another bride wear a stunning designer wedding dress on her own Big Day, even if her budget is a bit more restricted.

·       Donate it. This is a truly wonderful gesture – and if you want to donate your wedding gown, we totally encourage you to do this. Weddings are really amazing events in people’s lives and all brides want to look really beautiful as they walk down the aisle – so why not offer this chance to a bride who is a little less fortunate than you were? We bet it will make her feel so great!

Have you found your perfect wedding dress? If you are in North Carolina and are still searching for options, be sure to check out Savvi NC and we’ll help you find the most amazing wedding dress in the world. Make an appointment, and we promise you will not regret it!


How to Preserve Your Wedding Dress


Your wedding dress is more than just a piece of clothing – it is a statement and a souvenir from the most amazing day of your life. It is a truly meaningful piece for you – one you definitely want to keep beautiful for the many years to come.

How do you preserve your wedding dress? What are some of the things you can do to make sure your wedding gown stays stunning forever?

We have some tips for you.

·       Take it to a professional cleaner after the wedding. Even if it isn’t stained (which we wouldn’t wish for any bride!), having it cleaned will help you make sure that all the micro-impurities are out, so that you can preserve your dress in a clean, pristine state. Keep in mind that you need the services of a professional wedding dress cleaner – this is a REALLY important factor because you definitely need someone who has experience in this specific niche.  

·       The best way to make sure your wedding dress is flawlessly preserved is by taking it to a professional. These people know exactly what to do: they know how to fold your dress so that it stays perfect, and how to actually preserve it. Ideally, you want to take your dress there right after the wedding, but you can wait up to six months and still be sure that your dress will be preserved in an excellent state.

·       The most common way to preserve a wedding day is by having it placed in an air-tight box. Most of the times, this box has a slightly see-through lid, so that you can still see part of the dress through it. Furthermore, specialists know exactly how to fold the gown in a way that will not damage it in any way (they will fold it with the bodice showing through the top lid, in a way that doesn’t cause creasing that might affect the gown over the years). With a good preservation specialist’s services, you can keep your dress as beautiful as ever for many decades to come!

What to do if you gain or lose weight after you order your dress

Your wedding is more than a special event in your life – it is the special event. The one that will skyrocket you into a new life. The one that needs to be perfect. The one that is surrounded by magic, emotion, and love like no other event can ever be.

Of course, you want to look flawless on your wedding day – but what if you gain or lose weight after ordering your wedding dress?

We have some tips to help you with this, so no need to panic. We are here to help!

·       Your weight loss process should not be chaotic, but well-calculated. In general, it takes burning 3500 calories to lose one pound – based on this, your caloric intake needs, and the goal weight you have in mind, you can calculate how much you will weigh by the time your wedding comes. This is not an exact science, and you have to adhere to your plan quite strictly if you want to stick in those parameters, but generally, it can help a lot.

·       Schedule your last fitting a few weeks before the wedding. Your weight cannot change drastically in just a few weeks, so your seamstress will be able to adjust your dress to a size that is quite similar to what you will be on your wedding day.

·       Buying a larger dress is a safer choice. You want to order a gown that’s a bit larger than what you would normally wear, and you want to do this for two reasons. For one, if you happen to gain weight, you will still be able to fit into the dress. And for another, sizing down during the fitting process is much easier than sizing up (which can be impossible most of the time).


·       Try to live a balanced life. Weight loss and weight gain occur when there’s a lack of balance. Eat well, drink water, sleep as much as you need, and stick to your workout routine. It will help you look your best – and feel your best too!

It’s impossible not to love at least one of them! Once you’ve found your perfect dress, make sure to tag us on Instagram or Facebook to show off your complete ensemble!

Best Dress Options for Nighttime Weddings

With summer just a few months away, we’re all dreaming of warm evenings spent under the starry night – and if you plan on getting married in 2019 under the gorgeous skies of North Carolina, you definitely want to make sure your wedding dress is just perfect for the weather (and the vibes) of the season.

What are some of the best dress options (and general pieces of advice) for nighttime weddings?

We have some tips for you!

·       You can’t plan weather. We all wish we were able to do this, but sadly, it is something no human being can do. What you can do, however, is be ready for any kind of situation. So, if you think the night might get a touch chilly, make sure to bring along something to cover yourself with: a shawl, a thin cape, or even a leather or denim jacket (for those of you who want to be a little unconventional). Whatever your choice, pick it out ahead of time so you know it’ll look good with your dress.

·       The fabric of the dress matters a lot. In general, you want your lace to be as lightweight as possible (Chantilly lace is our best recommendation), and you want to pick a dress made from natural fabrics (such as silk, just like Meghan Markle wore on her wedding day). This will keep you cool during the day and it will keep you comfortable during the night (especially if you follow our first tip too).

·       Generally speaking, longer dresses are the best choice for nighttime events. It might be something ultra-elegant and luxurious (such as a mermaid or ballgown-cut wedding dress). Or, it could be something more casual (such as a boho-chic wedding dress or sheath dress). While tea-length gowns look absolutely gorgeous, they might not be suitable for a nighttime wedding – mostly because they are associated with daytime events, but also because you might get a little chilly, especially if you’re planning an early summer wedding.

·       Be bold and courageous. This is a nighttime event, so you are definitely allowed to wear a deeper neckline, or even a backless dress. A gown with a slit on one side can be really sexy and feminine too! The key lies in ensuring that your entire look is well-balanced from every point of view. Also, if you want to have a white tie or black tie wedding, you might want to keep yourself more covered, as the etiquette demands it.

You will love it here! After the big day, make sure to tag us on Instagram or Facebook when you post pictures of just how magical you looked!


What Are the Most Important Wedding Gown Trends for the Summer of 2019?

Every bride deserves to be uniquely beautiful on her wedding day – so you should absolutely be able to choose whatever gown you feel most comfortable in, regardless of what wedding trends say is in or out.

That doesn’t mean that trends are totally useless. Whether you want to create an authentic look for your Big Day or if you just love fashion in general, looking at the current wedding trends can be a great source of inspiration.

For instance, do you know the main wedding dress trends for the summer of 2019? Here are some of the rising stars:

·       Plunging necklines. If you are a daring bride who wants to really wow your guests as you make your steps down the aisle, this trend is perfect for you. A plunging neckline will elongate the entire silhouette, flattering ladies with any size chest, and it will add a dash of sophistication to the simplest dresses, making them true fashion statements.

·       Spaghetti straps. Although they seemed to have disappeared from the fashion scene, spaghetti straps are making a comeback – and the bridal industry shows them at their best and most beautiful. Delicate and feminine, spaghetti straps are combined with intricate and simple wedding dresses alike, creating a trend that’s bound to be embraced by so many brides this summer, especially those getting married outdoors and can’t wait to feel the sun on their skin!

·       Statement ballgowns. Ballgowns are a timeless silhouette, so they never truly went out of fashion, but this summer, designers are bringing forward wedding dress ballgowns that are completely fresh and different! An inspired take on a classic favorite, these ballgowns have power to them: they are simple and bold at the same time, making a real statement as they add drama to your big entrance.

How to Choose a Wedding Gown for Summer Outdoor Wedding

Style 2339.jpg

Summer might feel very far away for all of you North Carolina brides – and we completely understand why: the weather outside is still pretty ugly, and we haven’t even seen the first signs of spring knocking on our windows.

Yet, if you are planning a wedding for summer 2019, you want to make sure you order your wedding dress as soon as possible – ordering it and having it altered can take some time, so it’s best to act quickly to ensure that you will have it ready by the time your Big Day arrives.

What are important things to consider when choosing a wedding gown for a summer outdoor wedding in beautiful North Carolina?

We have some tips for you, so keep reading if you want to find out more.

·       Choose your fabric wisely. You want to feel comfortable on your wedding day, and the fabric you choose for your summer wedding dress is really important. Pick something made from natural fabrics, such as silk or even a finely woven cotton. These materials allow the skin to breathe and are more likely to feel comfortable on the skin on a hot summer day than synthetics like polyester.

·       Make sure you have coverage options. Depending on where exactly you want to have your wedding, consider the option of a light scarf or cape to throw on as the night sets in. No matter how summer-y it may be during the day, a little bit of coverage can go a long way when it comes to temperatures that drop during nighttime.

·       Lace fan? No problem. While a lot of lace wedding gowns can feel heavy and awkward during a summer day, the right type of lace can be an amazing option. Our favorite is Chantilly lace, which is a perfect lightweight option that will look airy, romantic, and luxurious on a summer bride.

How to Accessorize a Detailed Wedding Gown

Your wedding gown is no ordinary dress – it will be part of you, who you are, and what your entire love story is all about. It will be one of your sweetest and warmest memories – one that you will cherish for years and years. 

You want every single detail of your dress to be perfect – and here at Savvi NC, we get that. We understand that brides want nothing less than perfection for their wedding gown. And that is exactly why we only bring in pieces designed by the world’s most renowned designers. One of our current favorites is Martin Thornburg, and we can’t wait to tell you all about their collection. 

We also understand the dress is not the only piece of the puzzle, and that brides want their bridal accessories to be just as gorgeous as their dress. But how would you accessorize an intricate, astounding wedding dress like those designed by Martin Thornburg? 

Never fear, we have some tips for you! 

·      Whatever you choose, make sure it’s not too much. With intricate dresses, a little goes a long way – so our suggestion is for you to opt for simple, dainty jewelry. Even more, it is quite recommended that you skip some of the jewelry pieces you would normally wear. For instance, if you are wearing earrings, you can skip the necklace altogether (or simply wear something ultra-fine and delicate). 

·      Keep it as simple as possible. Depending on justhowintricate your dress is, your jewelry should be simple. For instance, for the dress shown above, you could stick to one pair of very simple earrings (pearl, Swarovski, diamonds, etc). For something that’s a little more pared down in terms of design, you could coordinate your look with a pair of delicate drop earrings (to add a touch of glamor to the entire look). 

·      Remember to take the neckline into consideration. Some necklines don’t need necklaces at all. Remember, the higher the neckline, the less jewelry you should wear around your neck. Other necklines, however, need to be complemented by some sort of necklace – even if it’s something really small and refined.

Sweetheart Wedding Gowns that Will Melt Your Heart

There’s something about sweetheart wedding dresses that makes them eternally romantic. Feminine, sweet, and always elegant, sweetheart wedding gowns come in so many shapes, colors, and designs that it’s impossible not to find one that you’ll love. 

Truth be told, you have all the reasons to love them: they are flattering for multiple body shapes, they are extremely feminine, and they work with a wide range of gown designs. Anything from a classic ballgown to the universally beloved A-line to the more modern trumpet style looks great with a sweetheart neckline. 

Mori Lee knows how to create wedding dressesthat are flawless in every respect; if you’ve been keeping up with our blog, you’ll know they’re one of our favorite design houses. We’ve curated some of our favorite sweetheart wedding gown designs from Mori Lee and have some suggestions for which styles are best suited to which kinds of brides. 

·      Slightly off the shoulder, trumpet design. This gown is truly splendid. The delicate way the shoulders are embraced, the astounding details pulled together with the utmost attention to detail, the skirt that hugs your womanly curves and leaves freedom for movement (and dancing!) – every single element of this dress is downright flawless. This dress is perfect for elegant brides who want to show off their figure with sparkle!

·      Off the shoulder, ballgown design. This is for the romantic bride, for the woman who always knew how she wants to look on her wedding day, long before The One came into her life, for the woman who is not afraid to make a statement filled with femininity, grace, and elegance torn from another era. This breathtaking design features royally luxurious details, a décolletage that celebrates regal womanhood, and a level of refinement that’s hard to equal. Wear this and you’re bound to WOW your guests as you walk down the aisle!


·      Strapless, A-line design. This dress is a very modern design – but it’s the kind of “modern” that embraces beauty and elegance and the classic feel of a smooth, white dress. The graceful folds of the bodice, the lightly colored wedding sash, the simplicity and, at the same time, the opulence of the fabric – they all speak of quality, sophistication, and style. This is the kind of design bound to let your true beauty shine through, and show you off as the best bride you possibly can be.

There’s truly nothing more suitable to describe the Mori Lee wedding gowns than to say, “they are like a dream come true.” These dresses are more than just clothes – they embrace the woman’s body in a stunning way, and further still, they embrace a bride’s emotions in a seamless, beautifully sensitive way.

Every dress designed by Mori Lee bears with it a mark of true quality – it’s one of the reasons this designer is known around the world and sought after by brides who want to feel absolutely radiant on their wedding day.

More than anything though, every wedding gown under the Mori Lee label is created with a painstaking devotion to perfection. Every single bead, every stitch of embroidery, every inch of these gowns is crafted with care, and gone over with a fine-tooth comb before heading to boutiques around the world. From their simplest gowns to their most intricate, Mori Lee dresses are thoughtfully brought together to exude opulence, luxury, and pure elegance.


We hold a variety of Mori Lee wedding gowns in our store at Savvi NC – so if you want to take a look at them (and maybe even try them on), do not hesitate to visit us. We’re here to help you find the wedding gown that suits your body and your personality for an unforgettable Big Day!


A Dress for Every Body Shape: Mori Lee, Elegance at Its Finest

The way you feel on your wedding day relies on a multitude of factors – from the music playing in the background to the food that will be served.


Yet, no other element is quite as close to you and what could make or break your dream wedding than your gown.

You want to wear a wedding dress that doesn’t just fit – you want to wear a dress that embraces your body in the most beautiful and elegant way possible.

And that’s precisely what Mori Lee is all about. Every single dress signed Mori Lee has sweet, romantic touches, the finest attention to detail, and the utmost dedication to flawless shapes. The designers at Mori Lee have one goal in mind: to make every bride who wears one of their dresses feel truly stunning as she walks down the aisle on her Big Day.

Not convinced? Here are three Mori Lee wedding gowns meant to suit every body shape:

·       A glamorous mermaid wedding gown for brides who want to flaunt their curves (perfect for brides looking to show off an hourglass silhouette). This Mori Lee creation brings beauty to new heights. The embellishments on the dress, the long train, the soft shades underneath the lace top, the intricate back design – every single element of this wedding gown is thoughtfully used in this dress to make you, the bride, feel like the most amazing woman in the whole wide world.

·       A romantic A-line wedding gown for a timeless bride of any body type, especially brides with an apple or pear shape. If you are searching for a wedding dress that’s nothing short of classic elegance, this is it. The lace design, the A-line cut, and even the soft V-shape décolletage exude grace that transcends time and trends in a gentle, feminine way.

·       A comfortable trumpet wedding gown for the bride who wants it all (excellent for hourglass, apple-shaped, and rectangular-shaped ladies). Somewhere in between the glamor and passion of a mermaid wedding dress and the comfort and timeless beauty of a classic A-line, this Mori Lee trumpet wedding gown manages to have it all. If you want no compromise, if you want to be the picture of femininity and grace, if you want to be able to move around and dance the evening away, this dress is just perfect for you!
