A Winter Wedding in Grand Cayman

A Wedding Dress StoryBy: Rebecca R. “My husband Cody and I got married on December 8th on Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman. I wanted a dress that was classic and romantic, but was fun and modern enough to match our Caribbean setting. My mom, aunt, brother and I started shopping for my dress in Atlanta, where my husband and I live. This Sienna by Casablanca dress was the first one I tried on at Suite Bridal and we all loved it, but I was sure the first dress couldn’t be the one!  I tried on at least a dozen...

Laura’s Dress was “Love at First Sight”

A Wedding Dress StoryBy Laura H. “The search for my wedding dress was such a special day! My mom, mother-in-law, maid of honor, bridesman, and I made a day of it.
