Spring 2016 styles are here!

What better way to spend the holiday break (especially you newly engaged brides-to-be) than browsing Dessy Group's new Spring 2016 styles! Here are a few trends that we look forward to seeing more of in the new year.

Bold Prints - Going full out with floral prints is quickly catching on, especially for outdoor weddings. Nostalgic yet modern, print dresses are romantic and unique.

Textured Accents - As if all the new lace options aren't enough, Dessy is kicking it up a notch with embroidery, beading, and sequins to add that extra pizzazz.

Maternity Options - While empire waist dresses can be relatively simple to convert to accommodate baby bumps by sizing up or ordering extra fabric, Dessy just made things a lot easier for your expectant bridesmaids with their new maternity line that coordinates with existing regular styles.

Fun New Fabrics - Be sure to check out Lux Shimmer, which adds a gold or silver sheen to select lux chiffon colors, and Florentine Lace, a softly pressed subtle pattern. You can order swatches here.

Real Weddings: Erin & Ben

Fall is my favorite season, so I loved seeing Erin & Ben's seasonally inspired October wedding, which took place at the Jefferson Country Club in Blacklick, Ohio.

Erin was glad when the planning was over and they could just enjoy the day! She loved how everything came together on the wedding day, thanks in large part to the help of her family and  bridesmaids.

The bridesmaids wore Alfred Sung full length dupioni dresses in the color Mandarin.

Joielle was fantastic to work with. I had bridesmaids from Texas, Kansas and all over Ohio. Ordering dresses was a breeze and everyone looked AMAZING. I received so many compliments on the bridesmaid dresses!

Erin shared that there were many things they simply "forgot" to do; they didn't make programs, her stepdaughter didn't bring her bridesmaid shoes, and they didn't even cut the wedding cake at the reception! But none of it mattered and she declared that they couldn't have asked for anything more.

Nothing beats a bride with an amazing attitude because weddings never go exactly as planned. Congrats Erin and Ben, may your lovely family continue to be blessed with peace and joy!
