Here’s what they say:
“Epoch Couture modest bridal gowns help brides seeking coverage without sacrificing style and elegance.
Each gown is hand-created and not mass produced, featuring gorgeous fabrics such as exquisite imported lace, soft creamy satin and crisp silk taffeta. Discerning Brides will love the extra care and attention to detail that goes into creating each bridal gown.
Because the designs are expertly crafted, we can accommodate the different needs of modesty at no extra charge. Additionally, most silver beadwork can be replaced with white for LDS Temple approval.
The Epoch couture line is a vision of originality while maintaining the allure of vintage-inspired, timeless elegance.
Mrs. Welcher drew inspiration from the women in her life. Each amazing design has a personality of those who inspired these incredible bridal gowns.”
Here’s what we say:
I like the gowns that they have. These being my favorite.
The down side is you can only find them at Chatfields Bridal Boutique and the selection is limited. But you only need one! Hopefully 😉
The Cut, a blog from New York Magazine posted this:
“New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn loved Ivanka Trump’s custom Vera Wang wedding dress. She just died over the sleeves, which Wang had to add since the groom is Orthodox and Ivanka just converted. “We’re so used to seeing brides in strapless dresses that Ms. Trump’s gown made a fresh statement,” Horyn writes. Wang had about a month to make the dress, which was inspired by Grace Kelly’s wedding dress. Ivanka liked it because of the “lace and the royal factor.” Wang hopes to continue making modest wedding gowns in the future.
“She was actually very much about being covered and I seized on the chance to do a dress that wasn’t naked and very Hollywood.”
… Did she think Ms. Trump might start a trend with her sleeves? “She might very,” Ms. Wang said. “Nothing would make me happier. I’ve been doing strapless dresses for 15 years. It’s tiring.”
She’s right — all those naked brides with their bare shoulders are so cliché. Women should be walking down the aisle with all kinds of sleeves. Pirate sleeves, batwing sleeves, Gareth Pugh armor sleeves, gorilla-arm sleeves … or should they?”
