Thumbing through the pages of wedding magazines, we are presented with the portrait of the perfect bride. Wearing an exclusive designer gown and glittering jewels, she shows off her luminous makeup and neatly coiffed hair. Expectations are now set, and the message is clear – this is the standard to which we all should aspire.

Don’t get us wrong, pinning, clipping, and saving images for inspiration is incredibly helpful while starting to envision what you’ll wear at your wedding. But if there is a day to express your truest self, it is the day you get married. We love nothing more than to see a woman take her personal style, and elevate it for the occasion. Trust us, these are the brides who everyone talks about long after she walks down the aisle. From the dress to accessories to flowers, here are ideas to make a statement with your wedding day look.

In an effort to stay positive, motivated, and make the best of the situation this past year, many of us set goals, which often involved learning a new skill or tackling a challenging project. Intentions were good starting out and we were excited to master a foreign language, finally finish those home improvements, and dust off the sewing machine. But as weeks turned into months turned into a year and counting, that initial drive ‘to make and do’ waned. Rest assured, you are not alone if during this time, comfort and solace was found in watching episode after episode of the numerous TV shows streaming online. The characters, story lines (often romantic and full of drama!), fabulous costumes, and idyllic scenery offered escapism from the harsh realities unfolding around us daily.

The classic wedding dress will always have a place in our heart. There is a canon of amazing designers who, season after season, turn out gowns that meet the criteria of what a wedding dress ‘should’ be – beautiful, timeless, and white. But for this post, we have decided to focus our attention in a new direction. If the last year has taught us anything, it is that the terms ‘normal’ and ‘traditional’ no longer apply and wearing what makes you feel alive, joyful, and of course gorgeous is what really matters. And if there is a day to wear something that allows you to truly live it up and express your best self outside and in, it is on your wedding day.

“I’ve always loved wedding dresses that most would describe as ‘old-fashioned,’” BB Featured Bride Cara says. “As a young girl, I was the one who marveled at a set of pearls rather than diamonds.” Even with her bridal style in clear view, Cara was surprised when she ultimately decided on what she was going to wear down the aisle – a breathtaking ball gown by Pronovias. Here, she shares her ‘say yes to the dress’ moment and details about her bridal personals.

Part 2: Wedding Dress & Personals

The original plan was for Cara, along with her closest and most trusted confidents, to make a trip to Manhattan for a fun-filled weekend of wedding dress shopping. With COVID-19 making traveling any distance difficult, she decided to stay local and browse the boutiques in the Philadelphia area. “My Mom, two sisters, niece, Grandma, best-friend, and mother-in-law were able to come with me, so the experience still felt very special,” she recalls. “We made a day of it, renting a limousine and enjoying a nice, relaxing lunch in between shopping.”

BB Featured Bride Nailah on Her Breathtaking Chana Marelus Wedding Dress

Like many, BB Featured Bride Nailah used Instagram to begin her search for a wedding dress. Unlike many, Nailah had to face the challenge of looking for the most important item of clothing she would ever wear just as most of the world was entering lockdown because of Covid-19. This meant bridal shops would be closing, restricting availability for appointments and fittings. An afternoon of trying on bridal looks with best friends on hand to offer support and honest feedback would never happen. While the experience was not what she had originally envisioned, Nailah managed to find her dream wedding gown.
