on by in Weddings & Such

We loved Dressing the Groom so much that we wanted to show you all of the fabulously fashionable past-brides with style in Florida, too! Get ready for some breathtaking looks from these ladies...

For the gal that loves antique and consignment shopping, this look is for you! There are lots of new gowns that have a vintage flair, but there is nothing quite like wearing your mother's gown or re-creating a look from part of her gown. Think antique ivory for color and silvered or bronzed beading. Accessories like birdcage veils and pin-curls will complete this look.

THE PREPPY BRIDE

Preppy looks are so Palm Beach, thanks to Lilly Pulitzer! Bright color combos of pink and green with crisp white gowns make this look perfect for summer or spring. Try classic A-lines and structured fabrics. Wedding gowns with pockets are a total win!

THE OFFBEAT BRIDE

When this bride walks down the aisle, everyone is stunned. She is the girl that can pull off dark and moody accessories with dramatic details on her gown. Offbeat doesn't necessarily mean black details, however, how great is that jeweled bouquet and those fabulous shoes? For the extra-edgy bride, why not a black tea-length number and fuschia pumps!

THE BEACHY BRIDE

This is one look that can be different from coast-to-coast. Some beach brides want a light and airy gown with no train. Others still want the extravagance of a classic ballgown and I say, "Why not?". This is your one chance to have your dream wedding while wearing your dream dress! A key point here is to be mindful that stilettos don't do well in soft sand. So, wear beautiful sandals at your oceanside nuptials, of course!

THE CLASSIC BRIDE

Ahhh...le sigh. A beautifully soft, ivory wedding gown. Lots of tulle and movement. Just the right amount of beading. A cathedral length veil. Timeless and perfect. Enough said.

SOMETHING OLD, NEW, BORROWED & BLUE

When accessorizing for your big day, some brides follow the something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue rule of thumb. Katie used her mother's wedding veil as her something old and loved that this accessory from a few decades back still looked great with her new Vera Wang gown. Michelle's gorgeous engagement ring was her something new, as most rings are for brides. One of Jenna's bridesmaids let her borrow another friend's diamond bracelet that held a lot of meaning for both of them. And Amy's funky blue heels by her favorite designer became her signature blue item and I just love them!

I know so many of our soon-to-be brides are searching for that perfect gown and what better way to find the best salons in your area than to start with our Vendor Guide. There you can search under Fashion & Jewelry for boutiques near you! Stay tuned in the weeks to come when we work with different salons in all five Florida regions to bring you their takes on Fresh Florida Bridal Style!
