What Are the Prettiest Bridesmaids’ Dresses Ideas for 2019?

If you are planning a wedding in Fort Worth this year (or any other year, or any other place, for that matter), you definitely want to look at your very best. Even more, you want your best friends to look great too – and this is why you might be interested in the prettiest bridesmaids’ dresses ideas for 2019.

What are they? Where are trends going when it comes to this?

We have some tips for you – keep reading and find out more.


  • It seems that navy-colored bridesmaids’ dresses are a timeless piece, especially for summer weddings. It may be because a lot of people associate this color with vacation – or it may simply be because navy is a very flattering color for everyone (plus, it works really well with a bunch of other pretty colors, including this year’s popular Living Coral).
  • What could be better for a spring or summer wedding, other than green? Matching your bridesmaids with a green-based color scheme will bring a whole new level of energy into your wedding day and it will make them feel really lovely too. Opt for darker greens if you want a more serious tone, or for pastel greens (such as mint green for example) if you want to add a playful, feminine touch to your wedding.
  • Of all the colors under the sun, this is by far one of the single most popular ones. And for all the good reasons. Pink is feminine and sweet and its nature is perfectly well-tied into the love theme of your wedding (which is, in the end, the main and most important one, right?). In 2019, pink bridesmaids’ dresses come in lovely pale shades and dusty tones – just perfect for those of you who want to keep it both girly and classy at the same time.
  • Soft and pretty, grey looks stunning when paired with brighter colors – such as a lovely yellow or pink bouquet, for example. Plus, you could settle for a variety of shades of grey – from the darker ones to the lighter ones and even petroleum grey that ads just a touch of color to the mix. Your bridesmaids will look really great dressed like this!

How to Plan the Picture-Perfect Spring Wedding

Spring is officially right here, and this means that we are all feeling rejuvenated and energized by the blooming nature around us. If you have chosen this season to be the “host” of your Big Day, you definitely want to borrow some of the spring’s vibes to bring into your wedding/

How to plan the picture-perfect spring wedding?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.


  • Embrace Mother Nature. Spring is extremely generous when it comes to the beautiful landscapes it offers – so choose a location that allows you to emphasize on that. Wouldn’t it be really amazing if you could get married on a backdrop filled with cherry blossoms or simply green fields? Even when your location does not provide this kind of outdoor spectacle, you can still bring spring indoors – and one of the easiest ways to do it is by creating an abundantly blooming décor.
  • Keep it on the more casual side. Spring has a kind of airy, playful vibe to it that doesn’t bid well with ultra formal attires. So, if you want your bridesmaids and your VIP guests to be dressed in a way that suits the vibes of the season outside, it’s better to keep it as casual as you can (which, of course, doesn’t mean that people can’t be stylish and pretty!).
  • Create a bouquet in tune with the season. You have SO many options that it would be a real pity not to settle on something seasonal. From delicate flowers to wild blooms, there’s something for every single type of bride out there – so you will be able to create a bouquet that suits your style and personality down to the smallest detail.
  • DO plan for rain. You don’t want rain on your wedding day, that’s obvious. However, since this season is more prone to rainy days than other seasons, it becomes even more important to have a Plan B in store, just in case the skies decide to pour a little rain on you and your guests. A tent or an indoor option are excellent ideas that will keep everyone dry and happy – and while guests are having their cocktail hour, you can even sneak outside and shoot some photos in the rain. They will look fantastic!

Life-Saving Items You Should Definitely Pack for the Big Day

Your wedding day is bound to be magical from a lot of points of view – but if you want to make sure everything goes alright, you should also make sure to pack everything you need for the Big Day.

Sure, you definitely know that you should pack your marriage license, everything related to your wedding look, as well as deodorant, perfume, and other refreshers.

But how about those small items and hacks that can turn a disaster into a much more manageable situation?

We have a list of them right below – so read on if you want to make sure you don’t forget the best life-saving items at home on your Big Day.


  • Baby powder. This is so useful for brides! Why? Because it helps remove stains – so if an accident happens and your wedding gown is stained, you can dab some baby power into the stain and it will absorb the oil. Furthermore, if you use a stain remover wipe, you can apply some baby powder afterwards to hide potential marks (works especially with wine stains, for example).
  • Dryer sheet. OK, of all the items brides are advised to pack for the wedding day, dryer sheets are by far the weirdest. However, dryer sheets can help you avoid hosiery from sticking to your dress (simply dab a used dryer sheet on your hosiery). Genius, right?
  • Lip balm. Yes, you should pack this to hydrate your lips – but beyond its main purpose, lip balm can also be a life saver if a zipper gets stuck. A touch of this little moisturizing magic can help you finally unzip the dress if it’s needed. The same works with soap as well, but a lip balm is much easier to carry in your clutch bag and just use when needed.
  • Clear nail polish. This has been used to stop stocking from running for generations now – but on your wedding day, you might find other uses for your clear nail polish too. For instance, if you start “losing” the rhinestones on your dress, nail polish can help you get them back there where they belong.

Make Sure You Pack a Bridal Survival Kit for the Big Day!

As the queen of your Big Day in Fort Worth, you want to make sure you look royally gorgeous throughout the entire event. Of course, having your hair and makeup done by professionals will definitely help.

What happens when it starts to fade away? What happens when you’ll dance for 70 minutes in a row? What happens when you will tear up walking down the aisle? No matter how waterproof your makeup may be or how comfortable your dress may be, accidents just happen many times.

What to include in your bridal survival SOS kit for the Big Day? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.


  • We’re not talking about bottled water, but about those products that will make you feel fresh even though it’s been 10 hours since you left home. Deodorant wipes, deodorant, wet wipes, a bit of perfume, breath freshener – you’ll be ready to go. If your hairstyle is not very complicated, include dry shampoo in your kit as well (but just make sure you won’t ruin your hairdo using it!).
  • Makeup essentials. You might not be able to carry around your makeup artist’s entire set of makeup products. However, you can definitely carry the absolute basics: blotting papers, a bit of translucent powder, a bit of concealer, a bit of blush, a bit of eyeshadow (the most predominant color if nothing else), and a bit of lipstick. These things don’t take too much space, so you can definitely include them in your kit.
  • Dress accident fixers. Bobby pins, needles, thread, white chalk (to cover up stains), stain remover – these are just the absolute basics you should make sure to include in your kit. We know you don’t like to think of the worst case scenarios where your dress gets torn or stained – but packing away some of these basics can save you from the trouble of having to…well, keep on going with a torn or stained dress. They’re small things, but with the help of your bridesmaids they will definitely help you solve the issue.

No Room for Regrets at Your Wedding!

How many times have you imagined your Fort Worth wedding day? How did it look? And most importantly, how did it make you feel?

We bet regrets weren’t there, in your dream wedding – and yet, they sneak in brides’ and grooms’ actual weddings so often! With all the stress and anxiety surrounding the wedding planning, it can be really easy to allow regrets to sit at your table as uninvited guests.

How do you make sure they don’t even make it through the gates of your wedding venue? How do you make sure you have zero regrets regarding the way you planned your Big Day? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.


  • Focus on creating an amazing experience, rather than spending a lot of money or getting a lot of objects. Your wedding is not about the ten-thousand-dollar wedding dress, nor is it about the imported tulips. It’s about creating memories that will last for a lifetime – both for you as the bride and groom, and for your wedding guests as well.
  • There’s no such thing as “perfect”. It may be really, really close to that, but it will never be without any kind of flaw. Perfection is a myth – and even more so in the world of weddings, where “ideal” can translate into a million-and-one ways for every bride out there. Stop focusing on trying to find the “flawless” options – the more you obsess over perfection, the unhappier you will be.
  • Sometimes, it is actually better to take the old beaten path. It’s not that you’re not creative or that you don’t have unique ideas. But in some cases, doing the “traditional” thing is probably best. For instance, if you are not great public speakers, saying your own vows may be a pretty bad idea because the audience will make you feel even more nervous (and thus, more prone to make mistakes). It’s not that anyone cares about any kind of mistakes you may make, but if you want to feel as close to carefree as possible, following tradition can sometimes work to your advantage.

Wedding Party Tips Everyone Should Know

Inviting people to be part of your wedding party is not always as easy as it may seem – especially when you’re surrounded by a lot of options and even more so when you just feel some of them are not a good fit.

Should you feel obligated to add these options to your wedding party too? We have gathered some important wedding party tips you should know – so read on to find out more for your Fort Worth wedding.


  • Your friends’ life partners. Just because you invited your best friend to be your Maid of Honor, it doesn’t mean your future husband has to invite her significant other to be his Best Man (or even a groomsman). You and your fiancé are distinct individuals – and each of you has the right to invite whomever they please to be part of their wedding part.
  • Parents, godparents, grandparents… you get the idea. All of these amazing people will already play a HUGE role in your wedding, regardless of whether you’ll have a traditional wedding or not. There’s no need to feel obliged to invite any of them to be part of the wedding party per se.
  • This comes without saying, but even if you’re very good friends with one of your Exes, inviting them to be in your wedding party is not the smartest idea. If you won’t feel uncomfortable, your future spouse or your Ex will definitely feel awkward (to say the least).
  • Friends who are very busy. Some of your friends may be too busy to be very involved in the wedding party – and that’s OK. Everyone has their own lives going on, some are going through important life events themselves, and just because they can’t be there for you it doesn’t mean they don’t want to. You shouldn’t feel obliged to invite these people in your wedding party.
  • Friends from college. Unless you’re really close with your sorority sisters or college roommate, chances are you will feel odd asking them to be your bridesmaid or your groomsman. That’s completely natural and no, you shouldn’t feel like you have to invite anyone in your wedding party just because you got along so well all those years ago.

Pre-Wedding Beauty Tips All Brides Should Know

Wedding planning involves a lot of factors you need to carefully consider. From the budget to the way you will bid farewell to your guests, everything needs to be planned down to the smallest detail. And while you surely feel overwhelmed with the sheer amount of tasks you have to run, your beauty on the Big Day is not even by far the least important one.

What are some of the absolute essentials all brides should do before the Big Day for their beauty? We have gathered some tips right below – so read on and find out more.


  • Aside from the Golden Three (Cleansing, Toning, and Moisturizing), you should also make sure to get your skin exfoliated. This can be done in many ways, but the most efficient ones usually involve some sort of chemical peeling. You can get this done at the salon, or you can do it at home, using an exfoliation product suitable for your skin type. Our advice? Invest in something highly qualitative – it can make all the difference in the world.
  • Working out. You hear this A LOT, but the main reason it’s such a widespread piece of advice is this: it works. Working out will not only help you get a slender body, but it will also make you feel happier, it will make your skin glow, and it will give you a nice, healthy glow.
  • Sleeping and eating. Not sleeping and not eating makes your skin look dull and it adds an unhealthy layer over your entire body. Just don’t do it, no matter how stressed you are, or even worse, no matter how much you want to lose weight. Feed yourself with nutritious meals before the wedding day (and every day of your life), and sleep your 8 hours – they’re magical.

Top Things to Start Saving for When Engaged

Once engaged, you will start dreaming of your Big Day – the dress, the flowers, the colors, and the entire ambiance. Of course, that’s perfectly natural – you only get married once, after all.

Yet, the financial aspect of the entire wedding planning process should not be left aside. Even more, you shouldn’t forget to include some pretty urgent things that shouldn’t be overlooked. We have gathered some of the elements you should probably start planning for sooner, rather than later (and definitely not forget about them) – so read on if you want to find out more.


  • The Thank You notes. You probably feel there’s a very, very long way between the engagement and the after-wedding Thank You notes. However, you might want to include them in the first or second phase of planning – especially if you want them to be well coordinated with your other pieces of wedding stationery.
  • The honeymoon. Again, it may seem that you have plenty of time – but, like with all traveling arrangements, the sooner you plan and book, the better it will be (both for your tranquility and for your pocket, actually). Start planning this as soon as possible!
  • The gifts you will offer your wedding party members, as well as the gifts you will offer each other are important. They don’t have to be expensive – they have to be from the heart. However, it’s best to start planning for this sooner, so that you can rest assured that you will have something really special to offer to those you care most about.

You are unique, make sure you find the perfect dress for your body type!

Belltower Chapel & Garden

It doesn’t matter what your age may be, where you live, what your hair color is or what dress size you normally wear. You are gorgeous in your own way – and somewhere out there, your loved one wants to marry you precisely because you are absolutely perfect.

How to choose a dress that flatters every single inch of your body and makes you feel really fabulous as you walk down the aisle? We have gathered some of the most important tips to help you choose the perfect dress for your body type –so read on and find out more.

  • If you are on the shorter side and want to elongate your entire silhouette, we suggest you stay away from horizontal designs and from dresses that are too voluminous. Instead, settle for a dress with a vertical design or for one that incorporates a form-fitting layer under a gossamer tulle skirt – these gowns will make you appear taller and they will add even more grace to your overall silhouette.
  • Plus-size. Regardless of whether you want to achieve a slimming effect or simply celebrate your gorgeous womanly curves, the dress you choose should hug your body in a well-balanced way. Asymmetrical pleating, empire waist gowns, bodycon-like designs – these are some of the features you should look after.
  • Lean and straight. If you want to add a bit of curves and celebrate your elongated and lean figure, we suggest you settle for dresses that add volume and/or femininity to your stature. For example, an oversized peplum will be a daring and unique choice, while a long sheath dress made with lightweight fabric will make you appear taller and more statuesque.
