1. Make sure you have your dress before choosing your bridesmaids'. You want to make sure their dress, colour and fabric, compliment your dress and the wedding theme. 2. Don't ask all of them for their opinion. When was the last time you saw a group of girls agree on something? Either decide on your own or ask 1 or 2 of them, tops, to help you choose. 3. Our personal recommendation: avoid strapless dresses at all costs. They're not flattering on everyone and you really don't want hem looking like this while they're sitting down. 4. Do some research. Browse as many webpages and/or stores as possible so you don't end up regretting your decision last minute. 5. Take into account season, time of day and location. This is the most important part of your research. If you'll have a daytime, outdoor wedding in summer, try to choose something accordingly. Keep in mind that you don't want them to freeze nor melt while you're saying "I do". 6. Try to find something flattering for everyone. Chances are your bridal party will be very varied. not everyone will have the same skin tone or type so pay attention to that when deciding. You could even have 2 colour options and/or 2 neckline options. 7. All the dresses don't have to be the same. Nowadays you see a lot of bridal parties where the bridesmaids are all wearing different dresses in the same colour. This is actually a great idea. Pick the fabric and the colour, maybe set some guidelines (like length), and let them wear something that they know will fit their body type. Plus, if they're making that expense, might [...]
Our Eddy K. Bride, Amelia, met her husband, Victor, at Texas Tech University. They were both students and quickly became friends but after a while, things evolved into something else. Time passed, and they got an unexpected, yet wonderful surprise, they had a son together. They grew deeper in love over the years and finally Victor took her to New Orleans and magic happened. During our first night, Victor took me on a horse and carriage ride (as we had done during our first date) around Jackson Square. The carriage stopped in front of a breathtaking garden that was lit up. We got down to get pictures and that's when it happened! He told me how much he loved me and how he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. He then bent down on one knee and proposed... When Amelia started her dress hunt, she knew exactly what she wanted: a ballgown, bling and lots of tulle. She went to Serendipity Bridal with another dress in mind but it wasn't what she had imagined. After trying on many other dresses, her mother-in-law told her to try on a dress that was on a mannequin. As soon as Amelia saw herself in the mirror with the CT126, she knew the hunt was over. It had everything I was looking for and more. The dress was definitely a statement piece but it didn't overpower me, it made me a more beautiful version of myself. Amelia complimented the dress with a simple diamond necklace and bracelet, studded diamond earrings and Vince Camuto embellished silver pumps. She also wore a tiara and a belt for the reception. For sentimental value, I wore my grandmother's wedding ring pinned [...]

Kandice and Tyneil met way back when she was in highschool. What started as a big brother/little sister relationship took a big turn and ended up turning into true love. He proposed at one of their favorite restaurants, Valentine’s Day had just passed and Kandice being an event producer, hadn’t had time to catch a breath until that moment. Tyneil caught her completely off guard and as soon as she said yes, their family showed up to celebrate with them. I would be lying if I told you that I remember every word, because it was as if time had stopped. In that moment, the years, the memories, the fact that my grandmother didn’t live to see this moment rushed in all at once. They decided to set a date right away since they both had very busy schedules, so they decided to surprise everyone with a date only 2 months away. Kandice took her #bridetribe (sister, cousins, friends) plus her mom and her aunt for the dress hunt to Atlanta. She had some pressure on her because of the time frame, she had to buy something that the store had in stock. I literally went with no style, color, or anything in mind. It’s so funny that once I was engaged, all of my “Ever After” Pinterest boards were obsolete and irrelevant. She made appointments at some stores and quickly found what she thought was the it dress so she put it on hold while she searched other stores for her bridesmaids dresses. They ended up at Bride Beautiful, where she was no longer looking for a dress, or so she thought. We walked in and were received warmly even though we had no [...]
