Real Weddings Round-Up: Ruffles and Bows

Whether you're mixing or matching styles, ruffles and bows can be the perfect way to accent your bridesmaid dresses and bring a fun and different look to your party.

Susannah went the mixed styles route, choosing Alfred Sung styles in the color Midnight and peau de soie fabric.

Alfred Sung Styles D570, D534, D470, D530, D520, D510 

Thank you for being so great throughout the process of purchasing my bridesmaids dresses. We had so many comments about how great the girls' dresses looked and how it was such a good idea to have different styles. 

Emily's girls wore After Six Style 6611 in Blush. Both the ruffled one shoulder chiffon gown and pale pink color continue to be popular wedding choices.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the beautiful bridesmaid dresses. The girls looked lovely and everyone loved the dresses!

Lastly, Katie chose Alfred Sung Style D597 in Treasure. The faux wrap style with a front tie sash gives a relaxed dressy look, and the trendy teal color is matched perfectly by the multi-colored bouquets.

Thanks to our lovely brides for sharing your photos and valuable feedback. We hope you are all enjoying wedded bliss!

Real Weddings: Katie & Travis

Seeing photos from Katie and Travis' wedding felt like being transported to a magical garden paradise. And no wonder. Their venue, Rancho Las Lomas, is a private resort and zoological garden tucked away in the foothills of Orange County, California.

During wedding planning, Katie particularly loved the design details from the table settings to the florals, basically all the girly details that she knew would make her day special!

Katie's favorite moment on the wedding day was seeing the smile and tears on Travis' face when the gates opened and she walked down the aisle.

Matching the romantic light colored flowers, the bridesmaids wore a pleated sweetheart chiffon dress, After Six Style 6678, in the pale pink color Blush.

My favorite part was how responsive and seamless it was! We found our dresses for less than in a retail boutique and I was so happy to help my bridesmaids save money on their dresses. The team at Joielle were easy to work with and really want to accommodate and give us the best customer service. We are very grateful for your team!

Congrats Katie and Travis! May your marriage continue to flourish in love and joy.

Real Weddings: Lyn & Jon

A beachfront wedding with a lighthouse and antique carousel truly makes for a magical and romantic New England wedding! Lyn and Jon were married at Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven, Connecticut.

Real Weddings: Lauryn & Justin

Lauryn and Justin were married in Fort George Island, Florida at The Ribault Club. The venue was a historic building surrounded by a beautiful natural setting. The bride and groom felt that it had an air of timeless elegance and selected a traditional navy and white color scheme.

Skipping the "first look", Lauryn and Justin wanted the first time that they saw each other to be at the ceremony. It was very emotional but they "kept it together" and it was one of their favorite wedding day moments.

Lauryn's bridesmaids wore Alfred Sung Style D522 in Midnight.

The best part of the Joielle experience is the customer service, flexibility and group discount. Each of my bridesmaids were each able to purchase their dresses on their own! A lot of dress stores want you to turn in all orders and sizes at once. This allowed me to focus on wedding planning and not track down sizes or measurements from each girl. My bridesmaids could email Joielle about any sizing concerns and the flexibility was wonderful.

During their reception, Lauryn’s god grandparents who have been married for 68 years told them not to be worried about having the last word and to begin each day with a kiss.

Congrats Lauryn and Justin! Hope you follow the wise advice and have many healthy and happy years ahead!

Real Weddings: Jillian & Logan

Sometimes a couple shares a wedding gallery with you and every single photo is just perfect. That's exactly how I felt when I saw Jillian and Logan's photos. It was so hard to pick a few to feature! Married in San Francisco at the The University Club of San Francisco, Jillian really enjoyed planning her wedding. She compared it to solving a big puzzle and feeling accomplished as she found the pieces to fit her vision. Her favorite part was when she saw her florist's design. It was a perfect translation of what she had in mind.


When asked about her favorite moments, Jillian shared two. First, she messed up the first kiss and pulled away too quickly. It was very anticlimactic and had the potential to be an embarrassing moment, but Logan grabbed her and gave her a nice long proper first kiss to the tune of their cheering audience. (What a quick thinking guy!) She also loved when her dad walked her down the aisle. She was nervous about being the center of attention, but when the doors opened, she was excited and comforted by seeing her entire family who flew in from all over the country just to be there for them.

Jillian's bridesmaids wore Wtoo Style 658 in Latte with a Black sash, a v-neck style with airy tulle fabric.

"I spent so long shopping for bridesmaid dresses. They all started to look the same. I think Joielle's selection of dresses and competitive prices were really the selling points for me. It was also a very easy ordering process for my girls, who were scattered about the country."


Congrats Jillian and Logan. May your future be as beautiful and breathtaking as your special day!
