INCREDIBLE CONSTRUCTION

YOUR DREAM SILHOUETTE WITHOUT HASSLE.

Getting the hourglass shape you crave is easy with the impeccable construction of todays designer gowns without the discomfort of yesteryears figure makers. Our designer collection offers a huge variety of silhouettes, which just a few decades ago would have been uncomfortable and only possible with a complex array of undergarments.

Though you can still wear modern undergarments with these dresses, many brides decide to forgo bras and shape-wear because the dress's impeccable, custom fit and design provide all that is necessary. If you desire more coverage or shaping, we can also install cups in-store for additional support.


Justin Alexander

EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY  |  LUXURY DETAIL  |  EXCLUSIVE 

This unique and hard-to-find brand offers superior quality, breath-taking details and amazingly engineered, internal support systems that give brides the confidence to bypass uncomfortable undergarments! Though an uncommon find in Midwestern bridal shops, Justin Alexander's level of excellence makes it the most popular choice with I&L Brides.

DESIGNER VIEW - This season our bridal designers focused on featuring rich fabrications combined with elaborate handcrafted beading to make every bride feel confident, sophisticated and glamorous.

RACHEL'S TAKE - When opening my store I knew that I wanted to carry unique gowns and designers. I didn't want to have gowns that everyone within a 50 mile radius also carried. And that is the main reason I chose the brands I did. Justin gowns are some of the absolute best quality gowns I have seen and worked with. They also have so many unique details that other designers don't feature, such as dotted swiss, bedazzled buttons and inner support systems that make basically make undergarments a thing of the past. Justin Alexander is by and large the most popular brand we carry.

Budget Range : 1200 - 2200

 

Lillian West

Unique  |  Romantic  |  EXCLUSIVE 

We are so excited about our newest line. Lillian West makes some of the most amazing gowns we have ever seen! If you are looking for rustic, boho chic, this is your designer.

DESIGNER VIEW - Whimsy and romance embody the Lillian West Fall 2016 collection. Tiered skirts, light lace details and soft fabrications make this collection fit for the boho bride.

RACHEL'S TAKE - This line embodies everything I love about Ivory & Lace. The lace patterns are unlike any you've seen and the styles are extremely vintage inspired while being up to date with the latest trends.

Budget Range : 1200 - 1700

Sincerity

OUTSTANDING QUALITY  |  CLASSICALLY ELEGANT  |  SIZE-RANGE FLEXIBILITY

Sister company of Justin Alexander.

DESIGNER VIEW - The new collection is defined by graceful romance and beautiful details combined to create gowns fit for a princess. Each wedding dress is designed to let brides have their own fairytale moment.

RACHEL'S TAKE - Sincerity gowns are a sister company to Justin Alexander and therefore uphold the same quality expectations at JA. The styles are very elegant and princess worthy. One of my favorite things about Sincerity gowns is that they have an entire collection of gowns that are all available in plus size, for no extra charge (which is unheard of for most other gown designers).

Budget Range : 950 - 1200

PRIVATE LABEL

Classic · Inventive · EXCLUSIVE

 

 

Sometimes a bride wants a designer look without paying for the designer name. Just for that reason Rachel has been working with different bridal professionals to provide Ivory & Lace with gowns that are classically beautiful but won't break your bank.

With gowns starting at $750 to $1200 our Private label collection is a great option for a bride who wants a unique gown that you can't find anywhere else in Missouri. 

The Private Label Collection dresses are available in a wide variety of colors including ivory, light gold, oyster, blush and french blue. All gowns are also available with custom button up or corset back options.

 
 

I take great pride in our Private Label dresses. I have worked really hard to help design some truly beautiful and classic styles that are only available at Ivory & Lace.
— Rachel Mifflin, Owner


 

Each gown is unique, an individual with it’s own story and history. We are so enamored by the history and love, sewn and often hand-stitched, into these dresses. Like our brides, each one is different and beautiful in its own way.
— Rachel M. - Owner
