Our Bride, Dayna!

A big congratulations goes out today to our amazing bride, Dayna on her gorgeous wedding! Dayna wore not one but TWO amazing Stella York gowns and we think that both looks were absolute perfection! Her first look was an allover lace trumpet gown with an illusion neckline that complimented her long cathedral lace-trimmed veil beautifully. The reception look was a little more playful with a sparkly belt and gorgeous romatic flowy skirt and lace top! We love that Dayna did two looks on her wedding day and we think that she picked the perfect ones! Congrats to the happy couple! 12809889_10205600145272902_1890859143_o 939329_10205600147312953_462961370_o 12837708_10205600149673012_257134377_o 12837145_10205600153833116_159401103_o

Bridesmaids 101

It's no surprise that getting a group of excited, emotional girls to do anything in an organized fashion can be a serious challenge! Here's a few tips to keep things running smoothly from the ring until the moment you say "I Do!" Bridesmaids_movie_poster-1 Who to Choose Brides can often get carried away with the number of ladies they include in their wedding party. Our best tip is to just include the girls who are the closest to you and those that you know will be your bestie forever.  Skip the sorority sister you just want to impress, and the high school drama club pal you haven't hung out with in six months.  It's also a common courtesy and a nice gesture to include any sisters you or your groom may have, after all they're family now! Finally, don't worry about making the number of groomsmen and bridesmaids even- you can have a groomsman walk multiple girls down the aisle and vice versa.   bridesmaids dresses Dress Shopping Drama Choosing one dress that fits all shapes, sizes and styles may seem like an impossible task! Avoid all the drama by helping the girls pick out a few options and letting them vote on the style or color.  If they're still not feeling the same dress, you can always go with mismatched dresses, just make sure there's a unifying theme (style, color, fabric, length, etc.) so they don't all look like they're going to different events! Remember that everyone may have their own budget and style preferences, so have that talk before you head out shopping and you'll avoid the drama that can come with this outing.  Ultimately, you're the bride so the final decision should be yours.   bridesmaid bouquet Aisle Style One of the most important pieces of advice we can give you is to have a rehearsal a day or two before the wedding, including everyone who will be walking down the aisle- especially if you don't have a wedding planner.  Get all the ladies and gents lined up in order how you would like them to stand.  The maid of honor should go last, just before the flower girl if you have one, either alone or paired off with the groomsmen. Don't forget to tell them to hold their bouquet at their bellybutton (not in front of their face!) walk slowly, and most importantly, smile!     Photo Credit: crushable.com, christinechangphoto.com, colincowieweddings.com
