Hello, my gorgeous Real Weddings Brides.  Are you ready for your close up?  Today, we take a cue from Hollywood’s golden age with these divine creations from Casablanca.

You do not have to travel to Tinseltown to purchase these beauties — you can find them locally at The Clothes Mine Bridal & Formalwear!

Which one will you make your grand entrance in?


Soft beaded lace gown with a deep sweetheart neckline and an organza and lace ruffle skirt. Matching lace covered buttons go down the entire bodice.



Crystal Satin gown, with Silk flower and band accent. Vertical ruching at the empire waist and silk flower accent has Swarovski crystals, rhinestones and beaded embellishment. Strapless, soft sweetheart neckline, fit and flare silhouette, and satin buttons on the zipper.


Ruched, Perfecting Satin sweetheart neckline is accented on the front bodice with a crystal and pearl beaded appliqué. Matching fabric covered buttons with loops line the zipper of this flit and flare gown.

The Clothes Mine Bridal & Formalwear’s main bridal boutique is located in Sutter Creek at 60 Main Street, Suite 2, but they recently opened a second store in Angels Camp at 1262 South Main Street.  Please note the Casablanca line is only carried in Sutter Creek.
