Belts- The Perfect Accessory For Brides

Belts have been the hot accessory for Brides for a couple of seasons now. And with so many more options out there it's so easy to find the perfect one to accent your gown. Belts are great because they add a personal touch to your dream wedding dress. When you add a belt you are almost guaranteeing that none of your friends will have your exact look. And we know how important that is!

They also take a dress that may not have a defined waist and completely change the shape of that dress and your body. When your waist is accented by a belt you can see more of an hour glass shape and in turn your waist looks smaller in proportion than the rest of you. Which every woman can attest to loving!
Below are some of our newer belts and we will be adding quite a few more coming into the winter season. So if you have been dreaming of the perfect belt come on in and take a look!

What's Hot In Bridal For 2012

We just got back from Fall Bridal Market in Chicago and are totally inspired by what we saw. The fashion shows were gorgeous and we got a peak into what you will be seeing for Spring 2012. So all you Brides that have yet to find the perfect dress take note of what you will soon have to pick from!

The corset bodice is making a huge comeback and it's coming back with more attitude than ever. Sparkles and jewels adorn these tops and if you're really feeling brave the modesty panel can be removed to reveal a top that is sheer!

Volumes and volumes of fabrics adorned the skirts on the runway and we loved seeing the beautiful movement as the models strutted down the runway. This was a trend that we saw in 2011 but it is going to be extremely strong for 2012.

Belts and hotter than ever and the options seem to be endless. We purchased belts that were black, green, ivory with huge flowers, and rhinestones that will personalize the dress that you fall in love with. Besides being a great trend, belts cinch in the waist and show off your hour glass figure!

Fit N Flares and going to be going strong again into 2012 but their done differently than before. Textures are being added to make them more current and modern. And we saw beautiful Fit N Flares with soft laces and gorgeous bead work. My thought as I saw these come down the runway was- you couldn't be more feminine and Hollywood glam in a dress like that!

We saw some color being added to Bridal gowns. Black was hot but even more so a soft pink. If your not brave enough for an all color dress you can opt to have some accents in colors such as a belt or jewelry.

We had a blast at Fall Bridal Market in Chicago and can't wait until the shipments come in and you can see them for yourself. You will not be disappointed!!

Amelishan Wedding - Amber & Nick

If you love a unique wedding you'll love pouring over the photos of Amelishan's Real Wedding for Amber and Nick. In fact, Amber is the AM of Amelishan! So what kind of wedding do you plan when you are a designer yourself and have known the wedding industry since you were a child?
A wedding unique to your taste and ideas, and shows just who you are as an individual.

The Bridesmaids dresses all got to choose an Ivory dress of their choice. Yes, that's me to the left of Amber! She's my cousin and best friend! I chose a dress by Bill Levkoff as well as 2 of the other bridesmaids. Amber's dress is an Allure, that she got at Amelishan of course, and she put her own spin on it with the leather belt and customizing the shoulder accent.

The ceremony was in a rose garden in Kansas City. The day was beautiful and the sun came out just at the right time since it had been storming all morning. The reception was held at this great little restaurant that already had a great decor and personality.
Amber and I collected porcelain animals that she painted white to put on all of the tables. And made a great head table decoration of branches and origami birds.
Dinner was petite hamburgers with homemade french fries. Everyone devoured them!

The details were amazing. From the earrings she designed for the Bridesmaids to the songs that her Dad sang to her at the ceremony and dance. Everyone had a blast and didn't want the night to end. And that's what every Bride hopes for!

Amber and Nick's photography was done by Elizabeth the owner of Atelier Photography. Call 414-840-7328 to get more info about booking her or visit us at Amelishan to pick up her card and look through her albums.

Our Knot Reviews

I was on The Knot yesterday and ended up reading through some of our reviews. I love hearing why customers love us! And yes, the bad too, because that's important to us too :)

Just thought I'd post some of our newer reviews from our Knottie Brides out there.
Thanks for posting!

Excellent Service! posted 8/30/2011

This was the only bridal shop that I had tried wedding dresses on at. It was my first dress and I loved it! I had tried my dress on in July and we found out in December I was pregnant. They helped me figure out what size I would need and helped talked me through my thoughts of if I should order a different dress or just keep the one I fell in love with! I ended up staying with the dress. I still love it to this day! They helped me pick out jewelery and a veil and headband! They always remembered who I was when I came back in the store! They helped with the selection of my bridesmaid dresses as well! I found beautiful dresses that could be worn again and weren't that expensive! I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Truely Amazing posted 8/27/2011

After trying on dresses at many other place I was delighted to find my dress at Amelishan Bridal. They have a huge selection and my dress was absolutely amazing. I had my fittings done in the store, and don't worry about finding a bra anywhere else. The selection is amazing here!

Worth all the driving! posted 8/7/2011

Amelishan is about a 1/2 hr away, one-way from my house. They coordinated all of my wedding party's attire. We bought my dress & veil, my bridesmaids dresses, and my flowergirl's dress. We rented tuxes for my groom, his groomsmen, and our fathers. Everyone involved appreciated the professionalism in this locally owned store. Each member of the staff takes great pride in being a part of a couple's special day and proves it through their interaction with their customers. I definitely reccommend being a rewards member with the store for some bonus savings! Their alterations staff is amazing as well. I will be recommending Amelishan to any brides-to-be I know-- they certainly put chain stores like David's Bridal to shame...

Great price! posted 7/30/2011

Very happy with my wedding dress! It was not what I had orignially thought but fell in love. Amelishan has great specials and sales. I bought my off the rack for over 50% off. Great service also.

Beautiful Dress choices posted 7/30/2011

We did all of our wedding attire through Amelishan Bridal. The tuxes, bridesmaid dresses, flower girl dress and bridal dress. Plus all the alterations for myself and my bridesmaid dresses were all done at Perfect Fittings (affiliated w/Amelishan Bridal). I had an awesome consultant that I worked with at Amelishan (Amanda) and she really made my experience amazing and fun and stress-free! Whatever my girls or I wanted.. she made it happen. As far as the alterations, although they did a good job with my hem and bussel alterations, I still feel that I paid way to much. Close to $300! I would think that considering the amount of money my whole wedding party spent at Amelishan, that they could give me some sort of discount but... that was not the case. All in all... it's a very nice, elegant, classy place to consider for your wedding attire!

Beautiful! posted 7/22/2011

The shop is beautiful and the service was excellent! The way the shop is set up is very helpful in finding the perfect dress!!

Great Customer Service posted 7/15/2011

Overall I was very happy with Amelishan, especially their service. I never felt as though the staff was pressuring me to make a decision. They a large selection of wedding dresses and a large selection of mother of the bride dresses in all sizes, which made my mother very happy. I LOVE my wedding dress and received many compliments on it. I'd recommend Amelishan to any future brides in the area. It's worth the drive to Hubertus.

Best posted 7/3/2011

I had the best experience at Amelishan Bridal. The service was amazing. Each employee was very helpful and made the experience very personal. Good deal too.

The Accessory That Might Make You Change To A Winter Wedding

I've always been happy that I had a June wedding. Beautiful weather, peonies in season, you get the picture. And until recently I never considered that I would have loved a winter wedding. Not until we started carrying the perfect accessory for Brides and Bridesmaids.

We've just received a line of faux furs, that look so real you'd never know the difference. Until you see the price, which is fabulous! I can just envision a Bride in her fur snuggled up to her new husband in a horse drawn carriage while it ever so softly begins to snow. And how beautiful the pictures would be with all the Bridesmaids in matching fur stoles. I am getting excited just thinking about it!

So get inspired! And start planning your Winter Wonderland Wedding!
