Our Bride, Emily!

Emily and Kevin are married! We can't even stand how adorable these two lovebirds look on their big day.  Their smiles alone are enough to light up the whole room! Kevin looked so dapper in his blue suit, and Emily stole the show in her moscato and ivory colored tulle ballgown with a delicate lace bodice and encrusted crystal belt! We are totally in love with their whole look and how it represents their fun personalities! Congrats to the happy couple!

The Wedding Planning Secrets No One Tells you

Brides-to-be!  Don't let the wedding planning blues get you down!  We know that planning the biggest, most important day of your life can be a little daunting (no pressure, right?) but here's how to get your perfect day without all the stress. 75_Bride-Prep The number one secret that nobody tells you about planning your wedding is that it doesn't have to be one hundred percent perfect.  It's a day to celebrate the love between you and the person you've chosen to spend the rest of your life with. With so much pressure put on a bride to have a picture-perfect fairytale wedding, it's easy to see why it can kind of bum you out.  Our best advice is to be flexible! If it rains on your big day or your veil tears before you put it on- just let it roll off your back because if at the end of the day, you end up married you have succeeded! Olivia1 Our next tidbit to save your sanity is that your wedding doesn't need to go according to everyone else's plan.  We know that Mom really wants you to wear her dress because it was so important to her and that your aunties will have a fit if they don't get the traditional dry white cake at the end of the night.  But the important thing to remember is that your day should reflect who you and your fiance are as a couple- so if you want to hire a taco truck in lieu of a standard sit down meal, or have your dog as your flower girl, go right ahead.  Your aunties will understand that it's your day, and they might even have (gasp) fun!  If you want to do a backwards wedding where you party first then have the ceremony at the end of the night, or wear a colored gown and walk down the aisle to rock 'n roll, then You. Go. Girl. b3 Ultimately, what we want all of our amazing brides-to-be to know is that your wedding is a celebration.  Don't let other's opinions of what they think your wedding should be keep you from having a day that is unique to you.  If you're feeling pressured to have an over-the-top wedding to impress people, take a step back and make sure that's what is really important to you.  Your guests will have gone to dozens of weddings that look all the same so why not infuse a little of your personalities into your big day to keep them on their toes and make it a day that will be special to you!

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

Our Bride, Karla!

Cheers to another Bustle Bride on her wedding! Our bride Karla sent us the cutest pics from the special day. She wore a fitted gown with detail we're so in love with!

Congratulations again Karla, we're so happy we were able to be a part of the big day and make you feel like a princess! <3 12232768_10156260737315541_2027456596528196712_o 12194584_10156260743685541_4192972026296079600_o karla email
