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 more dresses, but couldn’t get this one out...

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. It is one of my favorite memories of the wedding planning experience.  My dress came from RK Bridal in New York City, and was one of the first dresses I tried on. True to the experience of many brides, my wedding dress ended up being nothing like I had imaged I would wear on my wedding day. I thought for sure that I didn’t want a strapless dress or beading, but the consultant encouraged me to give it a...

Third Time’s the Charm for Ariella

Wedding Dress StoryBy Ariella “After having no luck at the first wedding dress store that I visited, I was discouraged and doubtful on whether or not I would find a dress for my special day.  Those feelings disappeared as soon as I walked into Here Comes the Bride in San Diego, where my older sister had found her beautiful wedding dress. I guess the third time really is the charm, as the third dress that I tried on turned out to be the one! With its unusual jeweled top, open back, and graceful skirt, I knew that I had found my dress!”...

Jennifer’s Stunning Vintage Gown

Wedding Dress StoryBy Jennifer F. “Chris and I got married on November 24, 2018 at the General Sutter Inn in Lititz, PA. The General Sutter Inn is just beautiful and a super cool historic site. It fit wonderfully with the vintage style of the dress and accessories. Our day was just perfect. The only slightly negative thing was it was cold and raining.  But it did make for some beautiful photos!  The rain also explains the stained hemline as we did our first look photos and bridal party photos outside in downtown Lititz. The Dress [My...

Adrienne’s stunning dress was perfect for an outdoor wedding. I ultimately bought my dress from the designer herself at one of her flagship stores in NYC- Sarah Seven Bridal. The back of the gown’s detail is absolutely lovely! I combined the dress I loved with the train of another style gown that...
