Bahama Bride

Hello loves~ I am back after a much needed vacation! Soaking up the sun, drinking pina-coladas and dancing to the band made me realize how much fun it would be to get married in the Bahamas!!! ( yes, I think about work while I'm on vacation- I can't help it I love the bridal industry!) I was laying out one day and just started putting together in my head the perfect beach wedding. I created this lovely inspiration board to help display my vision~
So of course we have to start with the dress- This gorgeous strapless chiffon slim gown with empire bodice, long flowing skirt and sweep train, by Anne Barge would be perfect for a beach wedding. Very light and slimming, this romantic gown would look elegant sweeping across the beach.

In the upper right corner, is a picture of a very delicate flower hair piece by Lori London.
To view more collections, you can call to schedule an appointment for the Lori London Trunk Show~352.367.0070

And now for the venue~ the Bahamas. Remember, I am no photographer- just a bridal stylist, so these pictures are from my camera, but still gorgeous. My favorite place in the Bahamas hands down, would be the stunning Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island. They call it paradise for a reason~

I wish I was still there, but excited to be back to help all of our fabulous 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.
