Stella York’s new 2021 collection is here, and we are in love with the oversized lace.
It’s a new year, and that means bridal designers are unveiling their latest collections. One of our absolute favorite designers is Stella York, whose collection we carry at our bridal boutique in Brighton, MI. Her latest collection is full of romantic, boho silhouettes, low backs, and intricate lace. We’ve ordered a substantial number of her gowns for our store, including the ones you see here, so if any catch your eye, come to our store to try them on yourself!
1. Alba: Open back with tie detail.
This slinky gown includes a low back, long spaghetti straps, and one of our favorite details from this year’s bridal trends—a long streamer bow. We like how the simplicity of the front saves the drama for the back. A perfect choice for brides who love clean lines.
2. Luella: Plunging neck with figure-hugging silhouette.
The plunging neckline and lace detailing on this dress are enough to make anyone fall in love with it. However, we’re also in love with how it nips in at the waist for that bombshell hourglass silhouette. The long train on this gown seals the deal.
3. Jaymie: S
Ready for something more whimsical? Try this gown, with a flowing skirt and beaded embellishments. The sleeves on this dress, in particular, are breathtaking. The trailing floral motifs give this gown all the sparkle and romance you could ask for.
4. Corrina: Statement lace on a breezy boho gown.
When to comes to boho wedding dresses, nothing says “free spirited” quite like layers of gauzy lace. We particularly love the lace pattern on this piece, with the large floral design running the full length of the dress. This would be a perfect choice for a garden or beach wedding.
5. Delia: Vintage gown with sweetheart neckline.
With or without straps, we love the simplicity of this gown. The sweetheart neckline along with the double banded empire waistline give this gown a particularly youthful appearance, while the gauzy tulle layer adds extra movement to the skirt.
6. Bristol: Oversized lace on a plunging back.
We’re not sure which we love more about this gown: the breathtaking back, or the large-patterned Chantilly lace. Subtle beads and sequins give this dress a hint of sparkle in just the right places.
7. Caramel: Off the shoulder sleeves with pearl beaded lace.
The Bardot neckline is one we hope never goes out of style! The off-the-shoulder sleeves combined with the deep neckline give this dress a real punch. Pearl beadwork throughout adds shine and shimmer where you want it most.
8. Jennifer: Halter neckline with center back statement lace.
This gown combines a halter neckline with a beautiful line of lace down the back. While fitted through the hips, the dress flairs at just the right point so that it doesn’t constrict movement to brides who like to dance.
9. Joye: Free-flowing boho gown tulle lace.
Looking for an easy-wearing gown that combines minimalism and romance? This gown is deceptive in its simplicity. With a V neckline and low back, it keeps the lines in the bodice clean and modern, while the lace in the skirt add the romantic touch you crave.
10. Rhiannon: Deep V neckline with dimensional lace.
With its airy skirt and dimensional lace, this gown is fairytale perfect. The free-flowing skirt is made of glitter tulle, adding shine to a gown already packed full of whimsy. The beaded details are the final touch to make this gown a true showstopper.
11.Kathryn: Beaded glamor for the perfect beach wedding dress.
Between the sheer top, the slit skirt, and the beading that looks like sparkling water, we can’t see this dress anywhere other than a beach. We see this as a perfect gown for brides planning a destination wedding to the tropics, or for any bride who wants to stay cool while dancing a summer night away.
12. Finley: Long-sleeved, statement lace with an open back.
It’s hard to say which is making the bigger statement with this dress—the lace, the back, or the sleeves. This is the gown for the bride who wants everything: Romance and glamour, lace and beading, a form-fitting silhouette and a flowing skirt. Why choose when they work together so well?
13. Marcie: Vine-like lace and soft glitter on a stunning flowy A-line.
If you’ve been holding out for a dramatic silhouette, your wait hasn’t been in vain. The volume on this skirt is perfect for brides who want to make a statement, but the drama doesn’t stop there. We love how the low backline is echoed by the illusion lace, and the line of cloth-covered buttons are just the dainty touch needed to finish this dress off.
14. Diana: Pockets and a sheer, over-sized bow.
Are pockets an absolute requirement for your wedding dress? Don’t miss this minimalist masterpiece. The clean satin lines of the bodice and skirt give way to a back that is (literally!) tied together by tulle streamers.
15. Halona: Romantic lace with regency organza.
Now this is a gown that transitions well from church to garden. We love how the neckline is so wide as to be almost off the shoulders. The sleeves add a traditional look to this ultra-romantic design. And with so many layers of tulle, the skirt has a very full A-line silhouette, bordering on a ballgown. We also have a sleeveless version available.
16. Octavia: Strapless ballgown with large-scale lace details.
The sweetheart neckline on this dress gives way to a deceptively deep plunge. Don’t worry though: The high back gives this strapless gown enough support to keep the bride dancing through the night. The large-patterned lace gives this gown a dreamy, romantic touch.

There’s nothing we love more than a little free sparkle.
You just got engaged, and that means you’re sporting a shiny new ring. Congratulations!
If you’re anything like us, that new bit of bling is making you want more. You’re probably already thinking about what jewelry you want to wear for your wedding, but maybe you’re also just keen for something to match your ring. Or maybe you’re just thirsty for more sparkle. (We wouldn’t blame you!)
Well, we hear you loud and clear. That’s why we’re offering a new special this month: a chance to win a piece of jewelry from Olive + Piper! These pieces are great for making a statement, and are sure to add some extra shine to your look.
Not only that, but one grand prize winner will get a free private wedding dress appointment at our store. This means we’ll book the whole store for your visit so that you can bring a larger party to your appointment. Interested? Here are the details.
How can you win?
The rules are simple. To enter, you must follow us on Instagram, and then leave a comment on our contest announcement post telling us the date you got engaged. You can also tag a friend who recently got engaged to enter the contest on their behalf!
For more entries, you can also like our post and DM us an engagement photo with your fiancé. Each of these gets you one entry, so if you like our post, leave a comment, and send us a pic in our DMs, you can get a max of three entries to the competition.
When are winners announced?
We’ll be sending the winners of our jewelry giveaway a DM on each Tuesday in January. If you win a free jewelry item, you can choose your piece from everything we have in stock here at TWD from our Olive + Piper collection. We will mail it to your address, unless you would like to come in and pick it up at our store.
Our final winner will be announced on Tuesday, February 2nd. We’ll be pooling all entries together, then drawing one name for a private wedding dress appointment. Our private appointments let brides bring up to eight guests, so if you simply can’t imagine picking out your dress without family and friends present, this is a great opportunity for you.
You can enter at any time before February 2nd to win, so don’t miss out!
Interested in booking an appointment?
Even if you don’t win our grand prize, you can still book an appointment at our boutique! The White Dress is taking appointments for groups of three, meaning the bride and two guests. While we do require everyone to wear masks and do not allow brides to browse our gown selection in-store, our bridal stylists know our selection well, and can work with you to find the dress of your dreams.
Brides can also look at our online catalog to see what dresses we have in-store, and can even request sample gowns from our designers if they have a particular dress they want to try on.
And as always, we are here to answer any questions you may have about our selection, and we hope to see you in our boutique soon!
