I enjoy writing here on our online journal and sharing the knowledge that I've learned over the years in the wedding industry with not only my couples, but anyone who want an extra hand to hold during this amazing, yet busy season of life!

In my career, I've photographed everything from newborns to a past United States President, but my passion and focus has been for the wedding industry for over the past 5 years. I truly love this calling and feel blessed each day!

Wedding Dress Wednesday | South Mississippi Weddings

Wedding

April 10, 2019

back to blog

It’s time for another little blog featuring a few of my more favorite wedding dresses!

I will make sure I credit the bridal boutique just in case you’re looking for the perfect dress for your own special day!

We do have a few tips we’ve learned along the way to share with you! You don’t work in the wedding industry for 8+ years and not learn a thing or ten!

1. Choose a small group to shop with!

While all of your sweet friends only want to see you 100% happy I’m sure, everyone will be sure to bring one thing along for the ride…their opinion.

It’s great to hear why your Maid of Honor loves the dress, but what about if your Mom hates it, or vice-versa? Two bridesmaids yell with excitement when they see you while your Maid of Honor looks at you as if you have yellow polka dots all over your face.. see where I’m going here? If you bring 12 girls you will have all 12 opinions plus YOURS – and let’s be real, you matter most when it comes to choosing the wedding dress of your dreams! This is the perfect time to lead into the next tip we have, too!

2. That special feeling!

It’s great to have an idea of what you want, but so many brides I’ve worked with told me that they went to the store with a few ideas, but ultimately chose a dress they simply tried on because they thought it was pretty, or someone on the bridal boutique team suggested it. Remember the old saying, “When you know you just know?” I think it applies to your wedding dress, too!

3. Shop early!

It can take a while to receive your dress (your bridal shop can help determine the timeline) and you will likely need alterations. I wouldn’t suggest shopping too early if you’re planning a long engagement, but definitely make sure you’re not cutting it too close on something so important. You also don’t want the added stress that your dress won’t be ready in time.

If you’re married, what advice would you give a soon-to-be bride on shopping for her wedding dress? Drop it in the comments below!

This beauty worn by Mindy for her Historic Grass Lawn wedding in Gulfport was from Forrest Paper & Bridal Co. in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
The details were so incredible!
Mariah’s long sleeve, off the shoulder dress from Morilee by Madeline Gardner from Pearl’s Place in New Orleans, LA. Oh, so elegant!
Lauren’s classic style dress from Justin Alexander was a dream! It was purchased right here on the Coast at Bridal & Formal Boutique in Gulfport, Mississippi.

Look at the detail on Lacey’s dress train! How timeless is that?!!? It was purchased from I Do Bridal & Formal in Mobile, Alabama.
Kayla’s dress was so detailed and had tons of sparkle – yes, please!!!!! It also came from I Do Bridal & Formal!


hope you loved this post! I have too many favorites, but I hope 5 will do until the next “Wedding Dress Wednesday” rolls around!
