#FlashbackFriday to last summer’s breathtaking nuptials between Katie and Rien at the Warwick Melrose Hotel. Katie stunned her groom and guests in a beautiful Mikaella Bridal, A-line gown of chantilly lace, adorned with a satin sash and floral brooch at the natural waist. A strapless, scooped neckline was embellished by an added cap-sleeve lace bolero creating an essence of pure, timeless and classic beauty!
Hannah and Cameron tied the knot in a romantic outdoor ceremony surrounded by the beauty of nature and so much love. We love that Hannah wasn’t afraid to bring a touch of sparkle and glam to the organic setting in her Sophia Tollli gown. Her misty tulle ball gown wedding dress with touches of crystal hand-beading, a natural waist and stunning low scooped back neckline and bateau neckline concealing a plunging sweetheart bodice with lace appliqués. Finished off with a chapel length train and back zipper with diamante buttons because the wow factor is in the details!
“I wanted to share my experience of picking a wedding gown as a plus sized bride. I honestly waited longer than I should have to pick my gown because I was terrified. I felt that when I would go into a bridal shop, nothing would fit, noses would be turned up to me, and I would end up crying at a time that should be special (all in front of my best friends, sister, and mom). This sounded pretty horrible, so I just didn’t do it for months. Knowing that I needed to do this, I searched and found a shop in Dallas called A Curvy Bride *Now known as Molly’s Bridal*. I went in by myself for my first visit. I didn’t want to have any of my fears come up in front of anyone. I spoke with their Sales Rep and she asked me my vision and I explained it to her, I told her my fears, the part of my body that I was most self-conscious about and I told her I needed to set a time to try the gowns on in front of my nearest & dearest women. She calmed my fear by explaining that every sample gown in their location would fit me and she began to come up with a solution that would allow me to feel comfortable and beautiful on our wedding day. She NAILED IT. I loved my dress. I comfortable and beautiful the entire night. The dress I found was sleeveless and I DID NOT want to show my arms, so they simply added sleeves. I had no idea how easy and fun this process would be for me. The dress was beautiful, timely, and conservative-everything I desired. If you’re a plus size bride and interested check out A Curvy Bride in Dallas.”
I loved our wedding and I love being married. If interested, below is a list of the vendors we used.
