Places to display your wedding gown

Whether you’re a ballgown kind of bride, or prefer a classic silk silhouette, there are countless places throughout the estate to display your dress so that you’re sure to capture every lace or beaded detail stitched into your gown. Below are some amazing places to display the dress of your dreams, both inside and outside, while you get ready for the best day ever!


With a suite custom tailored for a bride and her maids, of course there are several locations within the bridal suite to display your gown, so it won’t even leave your sight!

The window on the far end of the bridal suite creates the perfect frame to display your wedding dress with a rod large enough (and strong enough) to accommodate your entire party’s attire. Whether you want to let light in for a playful look at all gorgeous detail sewn into your gown, or close the shutters for a perfectly crisp view of its silhouette, this is the most popular option for hanging your gown before it is time to get dressed.

If you are planning a first look, you might be getting dressed while the sun is still low. With plenty of natural light in the bridal suite, there isn’t a single window that is the best option. Check out the way Jason Adrian and Stephanie Pana played with natural light to showcase all the stunning crystal and lace detail in Stephanie’s gown.

Our dreamy painting of Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s “Place de la Trinite” provides the perfect pop of soft watercolors to contrast your gown.

Just next door to the bridal suite is our library, so your dress won’t be going far while your photographer works their magic. Boldly painted a deep shade of maroon, your gown will pop when displayed in this space, with other rich accents and dramatic furnishings to compliment all the detail your dress holds.

For a crisp, neutral setting with plenty of natural lighting, the cocktail lounge has quickly become another popular option for displaying your gown. Angles are everything when capturing the details of the dress in this space because of the natural and accented lighting from the floor to ceiling windows, crystal chandeliers and café lights.

The dreamy texture of our custom flower wall makes for another excellent neutral backdrop for your bridal gown. Mary had a great idea to get dressed in front of the flower wall, too, just before a private first look with her father.
