Ok ladies, those of you who dream of the perfect wedding gown should be excited because 2012 is going to bring you a lot of options!
We are willing to bet you will bring a tear to your mom’s eyes when she sees her little girl all grown up, looking like a princess in one of these ball gowns.
Ball Gowns and dramatic A-Lines have made quite the comeback, and have been featured in many of the most popular designer’s collections such as Vera Wang, Ines Di Santo, Lazaro, Marchesa and so many more. Also, if you are not afraid to break the mold, you will love the idea of not wearing white on your big day. Gowns have graced the runway in gray, purple, champagne, pink & even light blue!
Check out some of the top designers, and their beautiful gowns! Remember, that even if your local dress boutique doesn’t carry some of these names, it is helpful to find styles that you like so that you know what you are looking for when you go dress shopping.
It is a good idea to cut out some pictures of dresses and styles you like, and show them to the bridal consultant at the dress shop because it will help her find the perfect gown for you!

For those of you who haven’t heard, Corwin’s Bridal in Chico is offering a store-closing sale at the Cohasset location which was formerly Suzanne’s Bridal. Early last year Corwins Bridal quietly bought out Suzanne’s Bridal, after they moved from their downtown location to Suzanne’s location on Cohasset.
Corwins is now closing the Cohasset location and moving back to the Downtown Chico location on West Third Street. Due to less space, they are down-sizing their inventory significantly. So what does that mean for brides? “Wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses, mother of the bride gowns, flower girl dresses and other inventory purchased off of the rack will be discounted anywhere from 20-50%,” according to one of the managers in the store.
For brides who are interested in buying a dress of the rack, that would mean the dress is “as-is” so the store would most likely not offer refunds or returns. The upside to buying your dream gown off of the rack is that not only will you get a great deal, but you will not have to wait the 3-5 month period to get your dress from the manufacturer.
Choose from a wide selection of wedding gowns made by designers including Maggie Sottero, Allure, Mori Lee, Casa Blanca, Victoria’s and many more. They carry bridesmaid dresses by Forever Yours, Jessica McClintock, Alfred Sung, Dessi and Mori Lee.
The manager we spoke with stated that the transition would not interfere with any of the current order times, and should not affect customers in any way.
So stop by Corwins Bridal and Tuxedo on Cohasset at 169 Cohasset Road in Chico, or call (530) 342-6521 for more details.
