Elegance and sophistication is what the CT175 from the new 2017 Couture collection is all about. A beautiful delicate lace falls over the knee-high lining, letting you show off your legs but keeping it very tasteful at the same time. Add the v-neck and the gorgeous beaded satin belt and you’ll make a fashion statement for sure.

Sunday Inspiration: 7 CRUCIAL tips for choosing your bridesmaids’ dresses http://eddyk.com/sunday-inspiration-7-crucial-tips-for-choosing-your-bridesmaids-dresses/ http://eddyk.com/sunday-inspiration-7-crucial-tips-for-choosing-your-bridesmaids-dresses/#respond Sat, 25 Jun 2016 23:47:01 +0000 http://eddyk.com/?p=26883 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 as well have them buy something they’d want to wear again.

Eddy K. Bride Amelia http://eddyk.com/eddy-k-bride-amelia/ http://eddyk.com/eddy-k-bride-amelia/#respond Fri, 24 Jun 2016 15:26:25 +0000 http://eddyk.com/?p=26697 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 to the inside of my dress. She and I were very close, I was even named after her. She became very ill and passed away about 2 years ago and it was very important to me that her memory play a part in my big day. The ring was close to my heart and so was she!

The ceremony took place at The Brodie Homestead in Austin, Texas, a restored old barn with magical chandeliers that shined against the barn’s dark wood. Amelia chose to have a theme of romantic rustic elegance with very colourful flowers.

My favorite moment of the wedding was the reception and dance. When I look back at our pictures, many of our guests have these huge smiles on their face. That is all my groom and I wanted!

Tip for future brides: Don’t let the little things stress you out! Remember the bigger picture! My wedding guest count grew by 30 people at the last minute. I spent so much time worrying about little things. However, when the day came and I got to walk down the aisle towards the love of my life, none of that stuff mattered. It’s really about the love!

Eddy K. Bride Kandice http://eddyk.com/eddy-k-bride-kandice/ http://eddyk.com/eddy-k-bride-kandice/#respond Fri, 17 Jun 2016 15:30:26 +0000 http://eddyk.com/?p=26619 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 appointment. As the girls turned left toward the bridesmaid gowns, I decided to give my legs a rest and have a seat. It wasn’t long before I found myself sifting through some of the most gorgeous gowns I had seen all day! … I pulled a number of dresses, including the AK150, the MD174, and the CT154. The other dresses were gorgeous, but the CT154 was simply EVERYTHING!

The CT154 had all that Kandice wanted, the perfect fit, so no alterations where needed, enough bling plus all the layers. The decision was unanimous with this dress and she bought it right away. Since the CT154 has enough bling, Kandice wore simple earrings and a pair of blue Betsy Johnson sandals.

They got married at St. Matthew’s Anglican Church, the oldest church in The Bahamas, and then proceeded for the reception at a mansion on Cabbage Beach in Ocean Club Estates at Paradise Island. Kandice organized the menu, selecting Bahamian/Jamaican inspired grilled meats and seafood while Tyneil was in charge of the bar, selecting flavored lemonades, mojitos, top-shelf spirits and champagne. On top of that, they had an amazing band and DJ that had everyone dancing all night long. It really is amazing that they could accomplish such a great wedding in only 10 weeks.

My tip to my clients that are brides as well as to other Eddy K brides is this: Allow your vision to color itself in. I went with a very general idea of what my perfect dress and day would be. I forgot about my Pinterest boards and decided to allow everything that was authentically me play its role. I didn’t take any of it too seriously and trusted that with the strength of my #bridetribe and good, wholesome decisions… The best day ever would fall into place!

When choosing the appetizers for your wedding you need to put a little thought into it. First of all, don’t pick something that will be super hard to eat in one bite or that will probably drip as soon as you take a bite. Think simple but tasty, and most importantly, bite-size.

We made this list taking into account all these important factors but also keeping in mind that you want to impress your guests with your food picks. You don’t need to be a foodie to pick the right one.

Eddy K. Bride Gabby http://eddyk.com/eddy-k-bride-gabby/ http://eddyk.com/eddy-k-bride-gabby/#respond Fri, 03 Jun 2016 15:20:15 +0000 http://eddyk.com/?p=24708 Gabby and her husband met through her neighbour. It was a very romantic match organized by her now brother-in-law. He’d been talking to Gabby about him, of how they were the same age, single, and they’d be perfect for each other. He invited her on a blind date and the match was made. Only 6 months later he proposed! He popped the question in a restaurant where they were having dinner and hid the ring in her Margarita.

Gabby told us that when the dress hunt began, she wasn’t too excited with the idea of trying on wedding dresses because of her size, but her sister-in-law made her feel better by saying:

You have been waiting for a long time to find the right person, you are a good girl, pretty and you deserve a very pretty and glamorous wedding dress.

She took her mom, her sister, her sister-in-law and her best friend on a road trip from Mexico to Texas to find the perfect dress. She still wasn’t too excited but once she tried on the first dress she had an inexplicable feeling that made her just want to buy that first dress (good thing she didn’t). She finally found her way to Bride’s Gallery where she tried on 3 or 5 dresses without having the wow feeling, until her sister-in-law came to the rescue once again and handed her the beautiful MD159. Gabby added a belt which she designed and had her sisters wear matching belts at the wedding.

It was glamorous, wonderful and had everything that I dreamed of! WE CRIED!!! I felt like a queen.

The wedding ceremony was at the church near her house where she had attended mass since she was a little girl. Afterwards they had a big wedding reception with 400 people, everyone had lots of fun dancing and taking pictures.

They went on their honeymoon to Guanajuato, Mexico, a very romantic place.

My tips for brides can be summarized in just one thing: choose the dress that makes you feel like a queen. You deserve it.
