Happily Ever After...

As bridal consultants, we get to enjoy the moments of a bride finding her dress, picking out accessories to complete her look, helping her bridal party, and bringing everything together for her big day. What we don't always get to see are the great fiances we hear all about or the final look on the BIG DAY.

So, we are sooo excited when we get to see pictures of our wonderful brides and their beautiful weddings! We even just started a memory book in the store, so we can keep the pictures and thank yous for other brides to get inspiration.

The following is one of our brides that just got married November 8th, in Gainesville---
the new Mr. & Mrs. Schreier.

The bride Lesley wore a beautiful Jasmine Couture dress with Belaire accessories. Her bridesmaids wore a classic, great fit Amsale in a deep burgundy. Her mom also, looked amazing with one of our new Jade mother of the bride dresses.

Rob Witzel photography captured every detail of this gorgeous wedding. Rob and his wife are awesome photographers that serve all of Florida. You even check out his blog where he has some of our other brides.
So brides send us engagement, bridal portraits and wedding pictures, so we can feature more of our brides!

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!

  • Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
  • Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
  • DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
  • Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
  • Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
  • If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
  • Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
  • Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
  • Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
  • When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
