In this industry, every year we’re lucky to see gorgeous trends come through for wedding hopefuls - some are #somethingold (trends that have been popular year after year) with tweaks, others are #somethingnew (trends that focus on a newcomer silhouette, fresh accents or necklines, appliqued details, etc.), but this year, 2020, 12 months that we were all excited to see unfold back in January have inspired an entirely-new category of bridal fashion. It’s not just fast, it’s not just affordable, it’s everything, and it’s perfect for the brides who see 2020 (COVID, cancellations, chaos, in general) and say “uh, excuse us, don’t think you were invited - we’re getting married, so, no, don’t speak now, please zip your lips and forever keep your peace.✌️” It’s ready-to-wear for those ready-to-wed and we’re completely obsessed. We caught up with Chantel and Tyler Galloway, the creators of Ramblyn Bride and a pair who happen to know lots about the fearless bride already, since their namesake Chantel Lauren line found her first. Chicks, their new venture is just plain rad, you’re going to want to read on.
Wedding planning is a pain in the butt people, we all know it, right? If you’ve been a bride already, you can probably remember saying “screw it, let’s just elope” a few hundred times without even considering the reality of the sentiment. But if you’ve been planning in the midst of this 💩 storm, saying “screw it, let’s just elope” can have actual and serious next steps. Not every bride wants to postpone to a to-be-determined day in time, some brides just want to do it now - with or without a small audience in attendance. The whos, wheres, whats, and whens don’t matter so much, because the why - #love - is just so damn tempting.
The Roots of Ramblyn.
From the designers themselves.“Over the past year, we have been working on a sister brand [to Chantel Lauren] called Ramblyn Bride. It’s a purchase and wear/quick ship bridal line for the eloping, price conscious, or low-fuss bride. With the whirlwind of the 2020 wedding season, we were positioned in the perfect place to launch the brand for brides in dire need of gowns on a budget and for QUICK.” ~ Chantel and Tyler Galloway
But again, the affordability and accessibility aren’t just the only things at play here, because the bespoke designing behind the brand is no-joke kind of special. Pretty, self-assured, bold, and adventurous, these are just a few fitting descriptions, but the look is one of its kind. We’ll call it: elopement edge.“The perfect, let’s do this, say “I do,” kiss and be married kind of thing.” ~ Chantel and Tyler Galloway
A bride box that checks all the boxes.
It’s important to note, though, that Ramblyn Bride is way more than just another e-commerce dress destination. In fact, they’ve launched the first of its kind, all-inclusive “Ramblyn Bride Box,” to take all the worry [away] from brides in a hurry. So, if you’ve decided to grab your keys and just go, then you’re in luck - your box has got it all for your wedding day look.
