So you found the man of your dreams, you set the date, and you have the perfect wedding dress from Lovely…done, done and done! Now help your girls find the most amazing bridesmaid dresses…we have so many great ones at Shop Lovely! Whether you want your girls to wear the same dress or find different styles that go with the same theme, we’ve got you covered. We have adorable frocks in blush, mint, and florals…not to mention beautiful boho styles, classic metallics, and darling little white dresses.
The best part is, if you purchased your dress at any Lovely store, you can get 20% off for all of your bridesmaids! You will get a special coupon code when you purchase your dress to enter at checkout.
We’ve put together a few of our favorite collections based around gowns at Lovely! What are you planning on having your ladies wear? We’d love to hear!
We think the Greenwich gown by Sarah Seven is perfect for a garden party! We included Freesia, Angela, and Virgo for some blushy floral bridesmaids…just give them bunches of baby’s breath for bouquets or a dainty flower crown and they are set!
We think the boho bride can get away with a lot, so we gave a few options for her ladies. The lovely crocheted Sierra gown has that flowy organic feel, while the long-sleeve floral Tilda is the perfect mod number, but the deep blue hue and gorgeous draping of Tallulah would be stunning standing up in front of the crowd! All of these go perfectly with Elizabeth Dye’s incredible 70s inspired Dunaway gown!
One great way to keep your bridesmaids looking like the amazing girl gang that they are is to put them in the same color scheme, in this case we chose classic mint! It looks wonderful on all skin tones and would be amazing with a jewel-toned shoe and sparkly accessories! To complement the fabulous Wtoo Siri gown, we chose Peyton, Sally and Holland, three perfect mint minis for your classic soiree!
If your wedding theme is whimsical, you have so much to work with! You can choose from a rainbow of colors, prints and styles, and even mismatch your maids! For this gorgeous confection of a gown by Carol Hannah, we started with Wisteria, a bold, beautiful yellow and plum floral dress. Then we played off the colors by adding the lovely lavender Evie and the elegant lacy Hensen. We think they look super magical all together!
If you need more inspiration, just head to ShopLovely.com and peruse all of our beautiful pieces. We’re sure you’ll find the perfect collection for your own bridal party!
Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.
Prior to finding “the dress” I had visited one other bridal salon and tried on about five or six dresses. I left empty handed but with a clear vision of what I wanted: something simple but with a great shape. I had admired the New York and LA Lovely Bridal Salons from afar and when I found out the Philly salon was opening, I made my appointment right away. I came with a list of dresses I wanted to try on and the Nicole Miller Dakota gown was the first one I slipped into. After my mom and sister cried, I knew it was the one.
What were the most important details to pulling off your dream wedding?
We wanted our wedding to reflect the both of us – a mix of vintage details for me and industrial details for him. We wanted the day to be full of romance and love. Most of the details had meaning for example the brass candlesticks I had collected for a year at various flea markets, now they will hold a special place in our home.
What was the most memorable moment?
Can I say the whole day? However, my favorite moment of the day was our first dance to Magic by Colbie Calliat, our song. It felt like we were the only two people in the room, and the first time it set in that we were husband and wife. Also you’ll notice my then fiancé crying in the photographs while opening the gift I gave him. For the wedding, I found an old cigar box during one of my flea market trips. The box has our last name on it and the words “Te Amo” which mean I love you in Spanish. I filled the box with over 100 cards I had given him over the past six years of our relationship – birthday cards, Christmas cards, ‘Just because’ cards.
If you could give future brides any advice, what would it be?
Start planning early…the sooner you knock out the big stuff, the more enjoyable the planning will be. I felt no stress throughout the process and have the fondest memories from planning. Also, invest in a great photographer and videographer. After all the confetti has settled, you’ll only be left with memories, photos and the video.
