If your plans for the new year include getting hitched, Maggie Burns would make a sage guide for gown shopping. The designer has been awing Denver brides with her custom wedding dresses since she opened Marie Margot Couture in 2010 “on a whisper from the universe,” as she says. The world has taken notice, too: A year after she debuted her Platt Park shop, Burns won the Fashion Group International’s Rising Star Award for bridal. So we asked Burns to employ her impeccable taste to highlight the trends that are taking over nuptials in 2019—to help you find the perfect dress (or jumpsuit) to say yes to.
“These are for brides who want to have some flexibility—literally—at their wedding.”
