Mother-of-the-Bride Dress Shopping Tips

Our Palm Beach bridal boutique has racks that are filled with the most stunningly beautiful mother of the bride (and groom) dresses in addition to all of the other exquisite wedding fashions that we offer. Mothers look forward to their child's wedding almost as much as the bride and groom, and they deserve a special gown for this momentous occasion.

Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches loves helping mothers find their perfect dress every bit as much as we enjoy finding each woman's dream wedding dress. There are a few things that you want to keep in mind while shopping so that you get exactly what you are looking for to wear on your child's big day. 

Start shopping early
The earlier you find that perfect gown for your child's wedding, the more time you will have to find the perfect accessories to go along with it. If your gown needs to be special ordered, you will want to find it early enough that there is plenty of time for it to arrive, with extra time for any necessary alterations. Strive to have your gown picked out at least 5 months before the wedding.  

Consult the bride
You will want to coordinate your look with the wedding colors. Even though this is your dress, it is your child's special day, so listen to their wishes when it comes to the gown that you will wear. They will have an opinion about the formality of the dress, and possibly other elements.  


Stay in touch with the other mother
You want to wear something that looks good standing next to the other mother at the wedding, and you definitely don't want to show up in the same dress. The best way to make this happen is to discuss your fashion choices with each other. The mother of the bride should get first choice when it comes to picking a dress, then the mother of the groom can take her cue from that gown. 

Stay true to your personal style
After listening to the bride and groom's wishes and consulting with the other mother, the final decision on the dress that you choose should stay true to your own personal style. Find a gown that makes you feel beautiful. 

That is not a difficult task when you shop at Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches. We feature Morilee's MGNY collection. They produce gorgeous gowns that are perfect for the mother of the bride or groom to wear. The dresses are made with rich fabrics, elaborate embroideries, and intricate beading. They also offer jackets, stoles, and capelets that coordinate perfectly for a timeless and classic look. 


Once your daughter (or future daughter-in-law) has found her amazing wedding dress, make your own appointment to come in and try on the most fabulous mother of the bride dresses in South Florida. We will make sure that you find something that works perfectly with your style, size, and shape. Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches has quite a bit of experience in this area, and we know how to bring out that inner beauty that your child has always loved about you.

9 Unique Wedding Bouquet Ideas

Some brides choose to stick closely to tradition when it comes to their wedding, while others prefer to stray from the norm. We recently read a story about a bride that worked at a rescue shelter and decided to have her bridesmaids carry puppies rather than a traditional bouquet of flowers. 

Her guests loved it and the pictures were priceless! If you would like to switch things up a bit yourself, Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches found a few fun alternatives to flowers that you can use for your wedding bouquet. 

Nature
There is beauty all around when you step outside in addition to the lovely flowers that bloom. Fall is a wonderful time to incorporate colorful autumn leaves or even small gourds into an arrangement. In the winter, pine cones with sprigs of evergreen would be very nice. Step outside and look around. Something is sure to inspire you.

Paper
Origami flowers in your wedding colors can be arranged into a gorgeous bunch. Paper can also be rolled to resemble roses and other flowers. Add a personal touch by using sheet music from "your song" or even pages from a comic or your favorite book.

Fabric
Fabric can be used in much the same way that paper is. We have even seen bouquets that were knitted and crocheted. For a rustic wedding, a big bunch of burlap and lace flowers would be perfect. 

Candy
For the couple with a sweet tooth, candy bouquets are both colorful and tasty! Giant lollipops already look a bit like flowers. You could also attach all of your favorite wrapped candies to a Styrofoam base with a handle. 


Lanterns
Lanterns would be especially beautiful coming down the aisle at an evening outdoor wedding or an indoor candlelit ceremony. The glass around the flame would keep the wind from blowing it out, and the entire setting would have a romantic, ethereal quality to it. 

Umbrellas
Paper umbrellas come in a wide variety of colors and patterns, and they are wonderful for keeping the sun at bay for an outdoor ceremony. There are tons of great photos that can be staged with umbrellas too. 

Themes
If you have given your wedding a theme, pull from that for ideas on what you can use to make a unique wedding bouquet. A fairy-tale themed wedding could have all of the bridesmaids carrying classic books wrapped in lace and ribbons. If you are getting married at the beach, gather a beautiful bunch of seashells together for a bouquet. 


Fans
Feathery fans would add a nice touch to a vintage wedding. If you are of Asian heritage, beautifully painted Oriental fans could pay homage to this in a very pretty way. 

Heirloom Items
Brooch bouquets have been popular for a while now. Other items that you could use are the bunch of buttons from that jar on your grandmother's shelf, or even pieces of a family member's bridal veil or wedding dress. If that person has passed away, adding a small photo of them is a touching addition. 


If you have been searching for something a little different for your wedding, hopefully the ideas above will inspire your own creativity. Whether you decide to go the traditional route or a bit offbeat, your wedding will be unique to you. 

That's exactly how we see every woman that steps into our South Florida bridal boutique. Each one is special in her very own way, and we strive to capture her uniqueness through the wedding fashion. When you shop at Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches, we will listen to your dreams, wishes, and needs for your wedding dress, then do our very best to accommodate each one.

Don't Miss Our Sample Sale This Month!

It's time to make room for all of the fabulous new fashions that will be arriving at our West Palm Beach wedding dress store. This is excellent news for any bargain-hunting brides out there, because Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches will be offering some incredible discounted prices on many of the dresses that we have in store. 


What is a sample sale?
Every season we need to make room in our Royal Palm Beach bridal boutique for the newest wedding dress styles. To do this, we must get rid of many of the exquisite dresses that we have in stock right now. These gowns are incredibly beautiful and in wonderful condition, but we  need to get rid of them so that there is enough space for the new arrivals. To move the sample dresses quickly, we mark them down so that the prices are simply irresistible.

Gorgeous Gowns
A "sample dress" is the one that we keep in stock for brides to try on to decide which gown they will order. Even though many women have tried them on, we take excellent care of every piece of fashion in our shop. If you are lucky enough to find your dream dress at our sample sale, you know that it will still be in wonderful condition.

Book your appointment soon.
Since these dresses are being sold "as-is" and not being ordered like our regular bridal gowns, they will go quickly. Once a gown is sold, it is no longer available. Our sample sale will be running throughout the month of September, but you will want to book your appointment as soon as possible so that you have more dresses to choose from. 

Come in ready to shop!
As with any wedding dress shopping appointment, show up ready to do some serious shopping. Arrive on time so that you get the full use of your scheduled appointment. Wear the proper undergarments. Nude underwear works the best. Bring along any accessories that you want to wear on the wedding day, like special shoes or an heirloom piece of jewelry. 


Don't miss this wonderful event. You just may find that wedding dress you have been dreaming of and only have to pay a fraction of what you expected. If you don't happen to see what you are looking for, we have lots of other amazing wedding dresses for you to try on in our current inventory. 

You can schedule your appointment at Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches by calling 561-793-4633. One of our knowledgeable consultants will listen to your idea of the perfect dress and help you discover it among the exquisite choices in our South Florida bridal boutique.

Tips For Getting Your Wedding Dress Safely To A Destination Wedding

Once you have your precious wedding dress in hand, you will do everything in your power to make sure that nothing happens to that wonderful garment. If you are getting married near your home, there isn't a lot of worry about anything happening to it en route to the wedding. If you will have to take your bridal gown on an airplane to get to a destination wedding, that can leave a lot of room for worry. Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches has a few helpful tips to make sure your wedding dress arrives safely with you at your destination.

Don't take your eyes off of it!
You bridal gown is most definitely an item that you do not want to pack away with your checked baggage. Keep it with you as a carry-on item. That is the only way to ensure that it will not get lost in transit and end up where you are not. 

Once on the plane, most flight attendants will be happy to help you find a safe spot for your dress. Occasionally they can find room to hang it up. If there is space in the overhead bin to lay it flat, that will work nicely too. If not, gently fold it in half and place it up there. 

Some brides have gone as far as to buy their gown a plane ticket so that it can sit next to them the entire way. If you don't want to spend money for that, it never hurts to ask if there are any open seats on the plane. If the flight isn't full, they may be more than happy to let your dress use one of the empty seats.

Pack it safely.
If you do not want to carry it separately in a garment bag or must pack it inside of your carry-on bag, keep it protected. Make sure there is nothing in your suitcase that could leak and stain the dress. One way to keep wrinkling to a minimum is to fold layers of tissue paper in the dress. All important items that you absolutely need on the wedding day should be included in your carry-on luggage: shoes, jewelry, heirloom items, the marriage license, etc... 

Once you arrive at your destination, hang the gown up as soon as possible. If a steamer is not available, you can hang it in the bathroom with a shower running on full blast with the hottest water possible. The steam will release those wrinkles, but you will want to be very careful to keep water away from the gown, and check on it periodically to make sure everything is okay.


Keep travel in mind while shopping.
When you come in for your wedding dress shopping appointment at our South Florida bridal boutique, let us know that you are planning a destination wedding. This will make a difference in the type of gowns that you will want to try on. If it won't travel easily, it's best to skip that dress. 

We deal with many different wedding issues at Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches, and we have helped many brides that needed to travel with a wedding dress. If you let us know all of the details, we will be able to find a bridal gown for you that will work perfectly and look absolutely stunning.

5 Classy Bachelorette Party Ideas

One of the pre-wedding parties that a bride gets to look forward to is her farewell-to-single-life bash.. the Bachelorette Party! Some women may not appreciate the crazy, bar-hopping night out that is generally portrayed in the movies, but a bachelorette party does not have to be like that if that's not your scene. Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches found 5 wonderful ideas for your send-off into married life that may be perfect for you and your friends. 



Cooking Class
Either find a restaurant that offers a private class with the head chef, or invite a personal chef to come to you. Spend the evening learning to cook a fancy dish together, and end the night by enjoying what you've learned. 

Spa Day
You've been doing a lot of preparation for your upcoming wedding, and it's very likely that you could use some relaxing time to de-stress. You and your girlfriends will all enjoy and appreciate a spa day. In fact, if you can find the time, make it a spa weekend. Massages, facials, mani-pedis, and serenity. Not only will you have a great time together, but you'll all look and feel amazing when it's over. 

Wine Trail
Rent a shuttle bus or limo for the day and let your personal chauffeur take you to all the wineries on a quaint wine trail. You can sample what the area has to offer, try some local cuisine, and maybe even throw out a blanket and have a picnic in the vineyard. Have someone in your group find out if one of the wineries will give a wine-tasting lesson before the day begins.  

Pinterest Party 
If you are a DIY bride with crafty friends, maybe you can turn your bachelorette party into a crafting night to get all of your handmade wedding projects accomplished. Another option would be to find a local paint class and spend the party creating a work of art to take home and remember the fun by. 

Sleepover 
Spend one of your last nights as a single gal acting like a kid again! You could even incorporate many of the parties listed above into the overnight festivities. Add a sappy movie marathon full of chick flicks and a late-morning champagne brunch, and that is a party you and your friends will keep happy memories of for a long time. 


Getting together with a group of your girlfriends can be a wonderful experience that you should always make time for. One of those times is getting together with your bridesmaids to pick out the gowns for your wedding. The best bridesmaid dresses in South Florida can be found in our bridal boutique, and when you all come in for your appointment, Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches will make sure you each feel special. We'll have so much fun, it will be like one more party you get to attend before your wedding. After all, the more fun you make the planning, the better the wedding will be.
