Designer Feature: Sara Gabriel

Our love affair with Sara Gabriel began almost 10 years ago, just as we were opening
anna bé and learning all about bridal accessories.  Over the years, her collection has been essential for anna bé brides looking to elevate their wedding day look.  From painstakingly crafted veils using exclusive fabrics and laces to jewelry & accessories that flow perfectly with the anna bé gown collection, Sara’s pieces are among our favorites in the shop!  And, to top it off, Sara’s collection is made right here in Denver.

One of the things we love about Sara is that she occasionally attends trunk shows to meet with brides, and uses real bride feedback to help grow her collection (trust us, very few designers actually do this!!).  Each piece is then made “completely by hand, one at a time and just for you from beginning to end. Every veil is individually cut, every crystal is hand placed and every lace appliqué attached one at a time”.  Want to get to know Sara a little better?  See below!

New Wedding Gowns at anna bé!

We love this time of year as all of our new Spring wedding gowns start to arrive! Check out a few of our new favorites below. Enjoy!

Meet “Coco” by Ines di Santo.  We love the delicate lace bodice and subtle painted skirt. But don’t worry, you can also order the skirt in a solid silk organza! This dress is SO light you will feel like you’re floating!

Also new is the Watters “Taylor” wedding dress, which offers a fresh take on a lace dress. We are obsessed with the unique pattern and texture with a subtle contrast under the lace. This dress is perfect for your Colorado wedding!

The Flora “Eva” gown is perfect for a boho bride who doesn’t want to sacrifice quality or fit in her wedding gown. The Eva gown feels amazing on and the silk and lace bodice sits just right on the body.  Bonus—all Flora gowns come with custom measurements to ensure the best possible fit!

Call today to book your appointment to try one of these gorgeous gowns in person! 720-855-1111
