5 Reasons to Hire a Wedding Planner

While wedding planning can be super fun and exciting, it can also be quite stressful. You don't have to do it alone though. Hiring a wedding planner can help you get everything organized, and will be there to work through every little detail. Today's blog from your favorite South Florida bridal boutique offers several reasons you should consider hiring a wedding planner.

1. A Wedding Planner Can Help You Keep From Stressing. 


There are a lot of pieces that have to come together to pull off a wedding, and let's face it, you want this day to be perfect! That idea of everything working out exactly how you want it to can easily stress you out. Having a wedding planner to help you with all the details allows you to have a life outside of your wedding planning, and enjoy your engagement time a little more. Wedding planning should be fun, not stressful.

2. Your Friends And Family Can Only Help So Much. 


While many of your friends and family will be eager to help, there's only so much that they can do. It's also easy to let emotions get in the way when dealing with family and friends; you need someone in neutral territory that you can trust to make the decisions that align with your vision for your big day. It's easy for those close to you to push their ideas and opinions on you, and just remember it's okay to say no.

3. A Wedding Planner Can Help You Figure Out The Budget. 


Not only can a wedding planner help you create a budget (they know the average prices for things), but they'll likely be able to help you save money. Wedding planners have a lot of experience with weddings, so they know how to find good deals. They can negotiate with vendors for you, and maybe they have connections that give them a discount for using them repeatedly. They can also help you avoid costly mistakes.

4. A Wedding Planner Can Help You Hire Reputable Vendors. 


A lot of different people are involved in pulling off a successful wedding, a lot of people that you likely don't personally know. From the caterer to the photographer, you want to make sure you're hiring reputable vendors. Your wedding planner has worked with a bunch of vendors and can recommend the best ones for you. If the planner recommends them, you know you can trust them because that's the planners reputation on the line too.

5. You Want To Be Able To Enjoy Your Wedding Day. 


When you have a wedding planner on-site the day of, they become the "go-to" person so that you don't have to answer every little question that people have. Your wedding day is one of the most spectacular days of your life, and you want to be able to enjoy it. Plus, you can't be in two places at once. Let a wedding planner take care of the details and coordination so you can enjoy a glass of champagne and dance with all your girlfriends.

Your wedding planner will take care of all the little details so that you can do the fun stuff, like finding the perfect wedding dress in Florida. At Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches, we offer an exceptional selection of wedding gowns and bridal accessories at very attractive prices.

Finding the Best Dress Style for Your Body Type

Fashion is an amazing industry. The variety of styles of clothing to choose from is practically endless, and some of those styles look better on some people than others. The same goes for wedding dress styles. Below your premier South Florida bridal boutique offers some advice on the best dress styles for different body types.

Petite Body Types


Brides that are petite will want to avoid overwhelming their small frame. For these brides, it's best to keep it simple. Rather than a big, poofy ballgown, a petite bride should choose an airy sheath dress or trumpet style wedding dress. Petite figures look great in empire waistlines as well, as they draw the eye up and create an illusion of longer legs. If you're petite and in love with the dropped-waist or mermaid style, those aren't off limits; just be sure to opt for slim, more structured skirts over the wide ones.

Straight Body Types   


Brides with straight body types will want to look for a dress that creates curves where she doesn't have them. A voluminous skirt will give you curvier looking hips, while amazing intricate designs and contouring seems create curves all over. A sheath wedding dress will accentuate a statuesque frame. If you want to show off your great legs, consider a dress with a slit in the skirt. To balance your height, choose a high neckline with a full, A-line skirt. For straight body types, you don't have to worry about a big, poofy gown overwhelming your figure - and we've got plenty of those at our bridal gown shop in Royal Palm Beach!

Hourglass Body Types


Brides with an hourglass figure should accentuate their curves with a body-hugging mermaid style dress. This is honestly one of the only body types that can successfully pull off a true mermaid sihouette dress. For this body type, it's best to not overdue the ruffles and tiers, as that would hide your sexy silhouette. Think fit and flare! An exaggerated drop waist and oversize tulle skirt would work well with this body type as well. Consider a cinched waistline to play up your small midsection.


Busty Body Types


For busty brides, you'll need to choose if you want something revealing or not. Finding the right gown for this body type depends highly on the neckline. Off-the-shoulder or bateau necklines help balance out a full bustline. Not too revealing, the square neckline looks great on those busty brides. While plunging V-necklines are a little risque, a more subtle dip looks a little sexy. Illusion "skin-baring" detail in a wedding dress is the perfect option for big-busted brides. As for the rest of the dress, a defined waistline is the best option for this body type.

Plus-Size Body Types


Whether you want to celebrate your curves or create the illusion of a smaller frame, we offer a variety of plus-size wedding gowns in Florida. Dresses with a corseted bodice will help redefine your shape. For a slimming look, try a lace illusion neckline partnered with a cummerbund-style waistline. A-line skirts are universally flattering as well. For an ultimate long and lean look, go with a high neckline, sheath silhouette and slight train. To show off your voluptuous shape, try a scoop neckline. Strategic draping of fabric can both add drama and define curves. Consider accessories, like a dark colored sash, to make your waist look trim.

Make an appointment at West Palm Beach's best bridal salon today by calling 561-793-4633. We'll help you find the perfect wedding gown to accentuate your body type. We offer a variety of bridal gown styles, including plus sizes. We can't wait to work with you!

7 of the BEST Honeymoon Destinations

Whether you're wanting to stay close to home or travel abroad to some exotic place for your honeymoon, Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches has created a list of some of the best places for you to consider. Which one sounds like a winner for your honeymoon destination?

1. Bora Bora, Tahiti 


If you're looking for a tropical honeymoon location, there's nowhere better than beautiful Bora Bora! The spectacular scenery of this small island, with dormant volcanoes, lush jungle and aquamarine waters is just the beginning. There are a variety of over-the-water bungalows that you can choose from. Enjoy snorkeling, explore the quaint town of Vaitape, hike Mount Otemanu and more!

2. Sonoma, California 


For something a little closer to home that you don't need a passport to get to, check out gorgeous Sonoma. From the world-class wine and delicious food to the unsurpassed scenery, this area of California is the perfect place for a newlywed getaway. The northern California city is known for its art galleries and the colonial-era Sonoma Plaza. Explore the history, sip a glass of wine and enjoy your time in this lovely city.

3. Bali, Indonesia 


One of the most romantic places you could choose for your honeymoon is Bali. Nicknamed the "Isle of the Gods," this island has long been a place for romance seekers due to the mist-shrouded temples, beautiful mountain vistas and vivid arts scene. View an unforgettable sunset view from the Pura Luhur Uluwatu temple, which sits on a cliff rising 200 feet above the Indian Ocean. After the sun sets, stay for a mesmerizing kecak dance performance.

4. Savannah, Georgia 


Looking for a location offering serenity and coziness? Head over to Savannah! Get lost in this beautiful city and let all the stress from the wedding planning melt away. It's over and now's your time to relax with your spouse. Take an evening stroll through the historic district, which is flourishing with local restaurants to try, or hop in a horse-drawn carriage for a tour around the squares. For a little more adventure, consider kayaking with the dolphins off Tybee Island, just a 30 minute drive from Savannah.

5. Santorini, Greece 


Known for brilliant sunsets and romance, Santorini is one of the most magical places in Europe, perfect for a honeymoon destination. The rich Greek food and amazing cliff-side architecture provide an amazing backdrop for newlyweds enjoying each other's company. Lounge on the red-and-black sand beaches or visit one of the many wineries on the island. Take in the historic sites or just relax and enjoy some peace and quiet, away from the day-to-day stress.

6. New Orleans, Louisiana 


Great food and rich history await you in New Orleans. When the tropical honeymoon isn't really your thing, exploring U.S. cities is a great option. Be sure to check out the lovely garden district, and find a restaurant with live Jazz music to enjoy while you eat dinner. Consider a bayou cruise on a paddlewheel steamboat, or take a bus tour through the historic areas of the city. Don't forget to grab a tasty beignet somewhere before the trip is complete!

7. Machu Picchu Pueblo, Peru 


If you want something super exotic and adventurous, look no further than Machu Picchu. Peru is home to some amazing sites, making it the trip of a lifetime, and an awesome destination for a honeymoon. Wake up early and trek up Machu Picchu to view the sunrise from the top! Take in all the authenic Peruvian charm of this spectacular destination.

9 Tips for Looking Your Best on Your Big Day

From hair and makeup to your dress and shoes, you want to look flawless on your big day. Inside and out, you want to feel beautiful. Florida's best bridal gown store wants to make sure you look your best on your wedding day. Keep reading for some tips on how to make that happen!

1. Start a Skincare Routine Now.


Don't wait until a week before your wedding to think about how your skin looks. Make sure to take good care of your skin all the way up to the wedding day. Consider talking to a professional at a salon or spa about the best skincare products for your unique skin conditions. Different routines work better for oily skin types than dry skin and vice versa.

2. Try Eating a Healthy Diet.


Eating healthy is a good idea for anyone, whether you're trying to lose weight before the big day or not. A healthy diet can help with your complexion, your energy levels and your immune system. Try to avoid foods high in sugar and keep your dairy intake low as well. If you want to both look and feel the best you can on your wedding day, a healthier diet is key!

3. Get Some Exercise.


Now if you don't go to the gym regularly, you probably don't want to race over and start pumping the weights. However, exercise can help in more areas than just getting into shape. Exercise can help relieve stress, which is inevitable when it comes to planning a wedding. It will bring flood flow and circulation to your skin as well, going back to that flawless complexion you're shooting for.

4. Set Up Beauty Appointments at Least 5 Days in Advance.


If you want to get an eyebrow wax, teeth whitening, hair coloring, etc., it's best to have the appointments set for at least five days before your wedding day. You'll going to have other things to worry about the day before you wedding, so get these items out of the way ahead of time. If you plan to get a manicure or pedicure, you'll want to get that done 1-2 days before the wedding, to avoid the likelihood of chipped polish.

5. Go for a More Natural Makeup Look.


If you don't normally wear a ton of makeup, don't use your wedding day to try out a new look. You want to look like a more enhanced, fresh, beautiful version of yourself. Don't try to copy someone else's look - you want people to recognize you. If you don't normally wear lipstick or dark eye shadow, don't opt for that on your wedding day either. The best piece of advice when it comes to makeup is to keep it as natural as possible. Yes, of course you want to cover up any little blemishes that may have popped up overnight, just don't over do it.

6. Store Your Dress in a Zipped Garment Bag.


Not only do you want to look your best, but you want what you're wearing to look great as well. You've already found the most beautiful dress from our South Florida bridal salon. Now make sure it looks pristine on your wedding day by storing it in a zipped garment bag and hang it up. You don't want it to get wrinkled and you don't want to get anything on it.


7. Practice Your Look Prior to the Big Day.


Figure out how you want your hair to look and how you'll do your makeup prior to your wedding day. Practice the entire look, and take a good look at yourself in the mirror. Take a few photographs and make sure that your look photographs well. Have your girlfriends, mom, grandma, etc. take a look as well. Listen to what they have to say, but in the end, make sure that you look the way you want to look. It's your day after all, not theirs.

8. Get a Good Night's Sleep.


In addition to the skincare routine and healthy meal plan mentioned above, getting enough rest is also a key ingredient in looking your best. You don't want bags under your eyes from not enough sleep. Not only do you want to avoid looking tired, but you also don't want to feel tired. You want your energy and your skin to be glowing!

9. Remember that Beauty Comes From Within.


If you think you look beautiful and are confident about it, others will see it too! Don't stress about little things that may not seem perfect to you, chances are no one else is even going to notice. What matters most is how you feel - if you're glowing on the inside, that light will shine through to all that see you on your wedding day!

If you're looking for the perfect dress to establish the perfect wedding look, come see us at our bridal store in Royal Palm Beach, FL. We have an amazing selection of wedding dresses to fit your style and needs. Call 561-793-4633 to make an appointment today!

5 Tips for Accessorizing Your Wedding Dress

Once you've found the perfect wedding dress at our South Florida bridal salon, it's time to think about accessories! While accessories can add to your look, you want to make sure not to go overboard. Today's blog from Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches offers a few accessorizing tips to help you complete that gorgeous wedding look you're going for:


1. Keep It Simple.


You've heard the phrase more is less. Well, that's definitely true when it comes to choosing wedding accessories. You don't need a veil and a headpiece, earrings, bracelets and a necklace, and a sash. Pick and choose what would look best with the style of dress you've chosen. For example, if your gown has an ornate neckline, opt out of the necklace as it will draw attention away from that part of the dress. In addition, if you have an up-do put on a nice pair of earrings, but with your hair down they may get covered up and a bracelet may be a better option. Whatever combination you choose, just remember to keep it simple.

2. Match Your Jewelry to the Dress.


Did you know that different types of metals pair nicely with different colors of dresses? If your dress is the traditional bright white color, gold jewelry can actually clash. In this case, you'll want to stick with silver metals or pearls when choosing your jewelry. If the color of your dress is more ivory, then some golf color jewelry will actually help bring out some of those creamy undertones. If your wedding gown has embellishments already on it, then it's extremely important you choose jewelry of the same color and style so it doesn't class and make the ensemble look too busy.

3. Put Careful Consideration into a Veil.


Traditionally, brides always wore a long veil to hide their face from the groom until that last moment before they kiss. Today, many brides are opting for different styles of veils or sometimes even no veil at all. When choosing a veil, there are a lot of things to consider. First, you want to make sure the color of the veil matches the color of your dress. Second, you need to decide on the style of the veil. Do you want a long veil or a short veil? Do you want to hide your face or just accentuate it? Keep in mind what the back of your dress looks like. If you want to show off ornate details on the back of the dress, you'll want to choose a shorter style. Lastly, consider your body type as different veils can elongate or shorten your look. If you opt for no veil at all, consider a nice hair piece instead.


4. Choose Comfortable Shoes.


While some people may say diamonds are a girls best friend, we're leaning more towards the shoes! Completing your look with a gorgeous pair of heels is great, but you want to make sure you'll be comfortable standing in them for hours. When shopping for the perfect shoes to match your dress, consider the height of the heel, the type of straps and material and the type of support they provide. The cutest pair of shoes will do no one any good if you're cringing in pain after just one hour. Once you purchase the shoes, be sure to break them in some before the big day! Bonus Tip: Another option for more comfort is to bring a pair of flats to change into at the reception.

5. Stick to Your Favorites.


While it is your wedding day and you want to look fabulous, don't stray too far away from your normal look. If you never wear bracelets, don't wear them just because it's your wedding day. Stick to what you know and what you're comfortable with. You don't want to be re-adjusting your jewelry all day because you're not used to wearing it and it's bothering you. The goal is to look like the best, most beautiful version of you, not someone else!

Not only can we help you find the most perfect dress for your big day, we can offer you gorgeous accessories. Whether it's the perfect hair piece or a beautiful veil you're going for, our bridal boutique in West Palm Beach can help you complete that perfect wedding look. Make an appointment with us today by calling 561-793-4633.

3 Tips for Choosing a Bachelorette Party Location

Often times when we think about Bachelorette Parties, we envision a crazy night in Vegas. However, you can't go wrong with a quiet girls getaway to the beach either. With so many options on where to spend some time with your girls before the big day, how do you choose? Whether you're the bride or the maid of honor planning the party, today's blog from your favorite bridal gown store in West Palm Beach has some tips to help:


1. Start with a Budget.


Not only should the bachelorette party be a great night for the bride, everyone should be able to enjoy themselves without worrying about the expense. Take into consideration who all would be attending the party and what their financial situations look like. You don't want one of the bride's best friends to count herself out on account of the price. Come up with a reasonable budget and run it by everyone before you get to involved with the rest of the planning.


2. Consider the Different Personalities.


While some people love to spend a night out at the clubs drinking and dancing, others aren't about that scene. Consider the bride and her interests first, and then consider the personalities of the rest of the attendees. If some like to party while others don't, maybe you can meet in the middle and do a wine tour with a fancy dinner. Are the girls adventurous or is relaxing on the beach more their style? You want everyone to be comfortable and have a good time - and the location is key for both.


3. Evaluate the Time Frame.


Depending on when the wedding is and how soon the bachelorette party will need to be, some party locations may be out of the question. For example, if you're planning to go to Mexico or somewhere else out of the country, attendees will need time to get passports and book flights. Something closer to home will be better for a short time frame. In addition, consider everyone's work schedules. Will the girls need a certain amount of time to ask off work? Will the party take place over a weekend or an entire week? Time will be an important factor in choosing a location. 


No matter when your bachelorette party and wedding will be, it's never too early to start shopping for the perfect dresses! At Bridal Couture, we have an amazing selection of bridal gowns, bridesmaid dresses, mother of the bride dresses and more. Come take a look at one of the most impressive bridal boutiques in South Florida - and find the perfect look for you and your girls!
