This gorgeous Lazaro gown arrived just in time for our Sparkling Summer Special for Memorial Day weekend! We absolutely love the show stopping, amazing gown.


Lazaro Lace and Gold Bridal Gown


The mermaid silhouette of this dress is perfect for showing off curves and the gold shimmer ribbon helps cinch in the look at the waist. The bodice features intricate ivory and gold Alencon lace with a sweetheart neckline. We love how chic and modern this metallic lace is. It gives the bride a little sparkle without being overpowering. This gown is also available in stunning Silver and Ivory, as well as solid Ivory.

Earlier this month the Owner of Angela’s Bridal, Janet Cooper and Lead Bridal Consultant Nora embarked on the journey to Barcelona, Spain for Bridal Fashion Week.  Angela’s Bridal has traveled to Spain before, but this trip was extremely special as Pronovias was celebrating its 50th Anniversary.

Pronovias “dresses the dreams of brides” from all over the world since 1964 when they launched their first bridal collection.  50 years after its creation, Pronovias is the worldwide leader of the bridal industry with their Spanish lace and details unlike anything in the industry.

With this dreary weather we’re having here in Albany, we can’t help but hope the saying; “April showers bring May flowers” comes true.  This week’s dress of the week, Tara Keely style 2400, is the epitome of “May flowers”.

Tara Keely 2400 by Lazaro Spring 2014 Bridal Gown

The gorgeous ivory Venise lace bodice has such a springy feel to it.  It helps us envision a beautiful bride on a nice sunny wedding day rather than dreary rainy weather.  The lace has a different and fresh feel, unlike your ordinary bridal lace.  It is very soft and comfortable and has a unique floral design.  The bodice features a sweetheart neckline with an elegant scallop detail.

The Dress of the Week is the lovely “Lana” by Hayley Paige. We are so thrilled to have this fun gown just arrive in our store that we showcased her in our front window display right away!  We hope it captures your attention as much as it did ours when we fell in LOVE at Spring 2014 NYC Bridal Market.


Hayley Paige


Lana features layers of ivory over cashmere fabric and English netting with geometric patterns.  This gives the gown stunning texture!  We love the bridal ball gown silhouette - that cinges perfectly at the natural waist.  The horsehair tiered skirt and chapel train add such a playful and feminine element to the dress. This is certainly a dress like no other!

It has been 6 months since Angela’s Bridal has made the move to Downtown Albany and we are so happy and excited to be a part of this thriving and expanding neighborhood.

The growth that has happened in such a short time is amazing!  We are thrilled to have 90 State Events by Mazzone Hospitality and 60 State Place as our new neighbors!  With Amore Clothing across the street – an Albany landmark for men’s wear, State Street is now the “Wedding Way” of Downtown Albany.  The common denominator of each wedding professional is making these amazing historic buildings and banks the new home to everything bridal!  They truly are the perfect backdrop for events and of course showcasing gorgeous wedding gowns!  

Angela's Bridal 126 State Street Albany NY

The wedding business is not the only industry making the move to Downtown, with a new donut shop in the works as well as liquor stores and a daycare – the redevelopment of Downtown in such a short period of time is amazing and we are so ecstatic to be a part of it.

Theia Emma Textured Bridal Gown

This week’s Dress of the Week at Angela’s Bridal features a pair of stunning Theia gowns. Tetxure and color is all the rage throughout the bridal industry.  Designer of Theia, Don O'Neill definitely brought both into these amazing and unique dresses!  These gowns are perfect for a bride who wants an elegant show stopper for the ceremony, but also wants a fun party dress for the reception. We love how fun and different both of these dresses are!
