Real Weddings: Springtime Color Palettes

With Easter right around the corner, we're featuring some fun and vibrant weddings that match the springtime spirit!

Chelsea and Ryan were married in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. The bridesmaids wore Alfred Sung Style D440 in Daffodil. The bridal party really pops against the gorgeous tree-lined backdrop!





Bride Samantha went multi-color in a tropical location with After Six Style 6556 in Punch, Sunflower, Apple Slice and Periwinkle.



Thanks for our beautiful bridesmaid dresses, the colors were amazing!!



And bride Jennifer pulls the opposite switch with different colored bouquets. She and Marek were married in Foxborough, MA at Renaissance Patriot Place. For you football fans out there, the rehearsal dinner evening did include a walk onto Gillette Stadium field!



Although it was hard to pick a favorite moment, Jenn especially loved the ceremony, which was a traditional mass in the same church her parents were married in.



Instead of limiting themselves to a specific theme, the bride and groom picked things that they liked and represented them, and used a mix of purple, pink, yellow and other colors. They also incorporated a Scandinavian tradition of having two empty chairs at their table which invited people to come and sit and chat with them during dinner. (Love that idea!)



Jenn loved the way the bridesmaids’ looks came together, wearing black dresses but with different color shoes that corresponded to their bouquet and the groomsman's boutonniere. The girls wore Alfred Sung Style D448.





I loved working with Joielle! My cousin had used Joielle for her wedding and recommended them to me as being affordable and with great customer service – and they did not disappoint! I loved the selection of dresses and liked the fact that prices were listed right on the site. I had something pretty specific in mind, so it was nice to have all the information up front. Joielle was also really helpful once the orders had been placed, as we had to add two more girls later and get rush orders in. We did not stress about the dresses at all even though one girl was added to the party about two months before the wedding! I cannot thank you enough for all your help and your outstanding customer service. My party looked amazing!

Real Weddings: Tying the Knot with Teal and Orange

Today we're featuring two vibrant weddings in some pretty amazing locations. Maryanne and Khamadi were married in Nairobi, Kenya at the Karen Blixen Museum. The wedding required long distance planning, and to make things even more challenging, Maryanne and Khamadi weren't even in the same city. They relied on Skype calls and luckily, their families helped pitch in as well.



They loved being surrounded by family and friends, especially since they hadn't been home in a while. From the energy and love being poured out from their guests to the dancing and gorgeous weather, they thought the day was simply beautiful.



The bridesmaids wore mixed After Six and Dessy Collection styles in the color Firecracker.

Regarding her experience with Joielle, Maryanne said:

"They were very prompt in responding to my emails, the dresses all came at the right time. I would most certainly work with them again."

Meanwhile, from the other side of the world, we were excited to receive an order from North Pole, Alaska!





Melody's bridesmaids wore Alfred Sung Style D440 in Caspian and the groomsmen wore matching Alfred Sung ties.

Real Weddings: Blue Belles

Blue has always been synonymous with weddings and today we're featuring some different shades of the popular color!

First up, Kathryn and Greg's wedding, which took place at the United Methodist Church and Elks Lodge in Chillicothe, Missouri. Wedding planning was easy since they were in a small town with only a few options! Kathryn's favorite moment was seeing how everything came together on the big day, especially the flowers.



Kathryn's bridesmaids wore Alfred Sung Style D435 in Aquamarine.



I loved Joielle. One of my bridesmaids told me about it, and I knew I had to use them! They had the style I had been looking at, and it was so easy for my bridesmaids to use. The customer service is top-notch.

Next up, Katie and Adam were married in the bride's hometown of Arlington, Texas at Howell Family Farms.



Katie loved picking out the colors for their wedding. Describing herself as a colorful and outgoing person, she knew that a monotone palette wouldn't do. Interestingly, she found the flower girls' dresses first and worked from there, settling on a mix of cobalt blue and chartreuse green accented with raspberry pinks and lilac purples.



The bridesmaids wore After Six Style 6611 in Sapphire.



I found my dream bridesmaid dress one day while shopping with my maid of honor but I had promised my girls I would never have them pay more than $200. I searched high and low for this dress and after 5 months of searching, I stumbled upon Joielle. We ordered the dresses which was easy as can be and got the discount for having 4 bridesmaids! Tammy and Julie contacted my girls and shipped their dresses which were packaged perfectly! I've never met them, but feel they had a big hand in making my wedding fit my dreams!



Katie's father passed away 3 years ago from cancer and never met Adam. She was very close to him and wanted to honor him throughout the day. One of her favorite memories was when her bridesmaids gathered in the dressing room to surprise her with a Dr. Pepper toast to her Dad and all spoke sweet words about him. What a lovely idea.

Lastly, Ashleigh and Toby's Sydney wedding at St Swithuns Church followed by a reception at Zest at The Spit. Ashleigh's favorite moment was getting out of the wedding car and waiting outside the church with her dad and bridesmaids. She was filled with excitement!



The bridesmaids wore Alfred Sung Style D492 in Electric Blue



Your service was amazing and so helpful. From the moment I first contacted you, it was easy and so professional. You answered all my questions promptly (even though we are a few time zones out) and delivery was swift - came earlier than promised! I knew I could rely on your business as you had some great reviews online. It is always tricky trusting online suppliers, especially if they are in a different part of the world!


 

The bride and groom enjoyed having photos done with the bridal party while sipping on champagne overlooking Sydney harbor as the sun was setting. The photographer understood that they didnt want too many posed photos and encouraged them to act naturally and have as much fun as possible.
