NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR -- With more than 60 years of experience dressing women of all ages for life’s special occasions, David's Bridal understands the importance of providing brides-to-be with a vast selection of exquisitely crafted bridal gowns and bridal party dresses. Known for outstanding value, fashionable designs and the ease of one-stop shopping, nearly 60% of all brides in the US choose to shop at one of more than 300 David’s Bridal stores located across the US, Canada and Puerto Rico. Working with a knowledgeable bridal consultant, a customer can enjoy trying on a wide selection of gowns and dresses in her size with the added convenience that most styles are available to take home the same day. Many couples are bucking tradition when it comes to their dessert. Especially for brides and grooms with friends who are culinary-inclined, there have been several weddings now with “wedding party potlucks” – having each member of the wedding party prepare his/her favorite dessert (cupcakes, cookies, cronuts, etc.) to bring to the table. Of course, every bride looks forward to her walk down the aisle with daddy, but nowadays brides are having dual-escorts in their father and mother. Instead of doing the “traditional” garter and bridal bouquet toss – to honor all of the single guests (with the chance of flashing a little too much in front of impressionable guests) – some couples are opting to honor married couples. Having something as simple as an “anniversary” dance, inviting all the couples up to the dance floor and “gifting” the longest married couple with the bridal bouquet – as a true testament of long, enduring love. With so many shades to shine in, from sapphire to royal, blue ensembles are a hit for any guest! Like this gorgeous royal sheer matter jersey dress that combines ethereal elegance with modern appeal! The sleeveless bodice features a stunning and chic v-neckline, while the ruched and beaded empire waist detail creates a sparkling and figure-flattering silhouette. Not to mention, it’s super comfortable! In years past, bridal gowns were limited to white and ivory, but now brides are having a lot more fun with their color choices and embracing new trends – from ivory gowns decked out in gilded glamour, to shades of pink and champagne alone or used to color interesting prints. Brides aren’t only stunning on the way down the aisle; they’re giving guests another fashion focal point to fawn over when they’re at the altar – by way of fascinating back detail and alternative necklines. For the bride who wants to stun from the front AND the back… she can mesmerize guests in this timeless wedding dress from Galina Signature. The tank slim satin gown with a unique cowl neckline features beaded straps and an eye-catching illusion back that exudes classic glamour and timelessness.
