7_mj250f 7_mj254f

Here at Charlotte’s Weddings & More, we carry 10 different bridal lines with styles and colors to fit every occasion for our eclectic Pacific Northwest brides. One designer that has become very popular with our brides recently is Madison James. This designer is part of the larger Allure Bridals, from which we also carry Allure Romance. We are proud to be the only store in the Portland metro area to carry dresses by Madison James. Known for their beautiful lace patterns and modern-takes on classic designs, Madison James strives to provide styles for every bride. We are so excited for the Fall 2016 collection of Madison James arriving soon in our store! We had their Fall 2016 trunk show in August, and it was a hit with our brides!

One gown that we are very excited for is style MJ250. In keeping with what they’re known for, this ball gown mixes modern with classic—the full tulle skirt has asymmetrical layers, creating an edgy feel. Delicate lace frames the bodice, with thin beaded straps that lead to a favorite design element, a low, open back! Our consultants often hear brides requesting low, open backs, and MJ250 is perfect for brides searching for a low back, but still want a classic ball gown feel. Available in ivory, white, or champagne, MJ250 is a great option for all!

For the brides looking for a sleeker, simplistic look, we’ve got gown style MJ254! Many Portland area brides are looking for a bridal look that is also very comfortable, and MJ254 is perfect for those brides. The skirt, made of crepe chiffon, is lightweight and breathable, just perfect for those hot summer evening weddings. With its modified sweetheart neckline, and the unique beadwork on the bodice, the gown is modern and fun. The simple sweep train adds a hint of drama, which will photograph beautifully in a garden setting or a large ballroom.

No matter your style, Charlotte’s has got a variety of gowns for you! Call us at 503-297-9622 or email us at to set up your bridal appointment today to try on these and many other gowns!
