Hello my friends!
I’m really excited to share this post with you because it is all things bridal. I’ve styled quite a few things in my life but this was my first stab at styling bridal looks. I had the opportunity to partner with David’s Bridal and if you’re in or near the Columbus, Ohio area I highly suggest stopping by their new store at Easton Town Center – it is stunning. When you walk into the store, it has a calm, inviting feel with a boutique design. The wedding dress selection isn’t overwhelming which I thought was very refreshing. The special occasion and bridesmaid dress sections also have awesome variety. I have a few more weddings to attend this year and let’s just say I’ll be stopping by again for some nice dresses and accessories.
Now, on to the good stuff.
I’ve always had an infatuation with bridal dresses because of the attention to detail you see in every design, so I was a kid in a candy store picking out some of these beauties to style. What I loved most about the selection was that a lot of the dresses looked like a million bucks but were at a great price. Check out the dresses I styled below to see how fabulous you can look on a budget.
Look 1 – Boho chic bride
A trend that has been booming this year and will make it’s way to next year is bridal separates. I love the idea of a two-piece set. Whether the set is a top and skirt or top and pants – you’re bound to look amazing in it and it’s crazy comfortable.
I styled the sequined separates by accessorizing with boho details. A head piece, chic sandals and a bold lip complete this look.
The best part about it? I actually pulled this set from the special occasion section. When shopping for wedding dresses, don’t feel confined to only the bridal area, sometimes there are awesome dresses in the special occasion or bridesmaid sections.

Looks 2 & 3 – Bride in color
Colored dresses have always been around, but we’re seeing a major comeback of the style this year. Light greens, blushes, silvers, golds and the now trending light blue – adding color to your day is nothing shy of fabulous.
I styled this beautiful embellished blush gown with a veil, delicate bracelet and gold sandals. The dress and veil are so bold and beautiful alone, I opted for no earrings, necklace or belt.

The next colored dress I styled was a beautiful WHITE Vera Wang sterling gown. Big ball gowns are making a comeback in 2018, so we had to throw this one in the mix. My photographer suggested adding the mini veil which ended up really tying the look together. I added Pearl earrings to keep it classic and a bright orange lip for a twist.

Look 4 – The classic bride
You can’t go wrong with the classics. This dress is amazing because it’s sleek from the front, but fun and flirty in the back. I styled it with pearl accessories and a simple hair style.

I hope these looks have inspired you for your next big day!
