No matter what your bridal style may be, you will find something perfect among the stylish and affordable designs that we carry. There is even an entire section filled with clearance-priced wedding dresses in every size available at 50% off of the regular price!  


#2 - Beautiful Bridesmaid Dresses
We can not only put you in your dream wedding dress, but we can outfit all of your lovely bridesmaids too. You will find a wide variety of styles in a rainbow of colors from well-known designers. As an added bonus, through our "Love at First Sight" program, if you, the bride, buy your wedding dress on your first visit to our store, your bridesmaids can get $30 off of the purchase of their bridesmaid dress, or 10% off of the price if the gown is $159.95 or less, when they come in to buy. (You also get 20% off of the purchase of your bridal veil and headpiece too!)    

#3 - Stylish Mother-of-the-Bride Gowns
The wonderful women that raised the bride and the groom deserve to wear something extra-special to the wedding, and we have a long line of gorgeous choices available for them. You can see a few on our website, but that doesn't even begin to show off all of the fabulous choices awaiting them inside our South Florida bridal boutique

We have the traditional styles with full skirts in both bright colors and sweet pastels, plus contemporary silhouettes that look right at home at any quinceanera celebration. 


#6 - The Incredible Flattering Me Bra
The most comfortable and flattering bra ever to be worn under a special occasion dress was created by our very own Coco Abadi, owner of Angelus Bridal & Formals! He listened to his customers over the years talk about how difficult it was to find a strapless bra that both worked and wasn't uncomfortable to wear. Always wanting to keep his customers happy, Coco patented the "Flattering Me Bra" which offers real support, natural cleavage, and most importantly, comfort. 

#7 - Stunning Accessories
Once you find that perfect dress, it's time to choose all of the lovely extras that add your own personal style to the design you have chosen. We have a wonderful selection of jewelry to choose from. For the brides, we also carry the veils and headpieces that put the finishing touches on your wedding day look.

Which Wedding Dress Train Length Is Right For You?

There are lots of different elements that come together to make up the gorgeous wedding dresses that are available in our South Florida bridal boutique. The neckline, skirt, fabric, silhouette, and many other details completely change the way a gown looks on you. Today, Angelus Bridal & Formals is focusing on some of the different train lengths that are popular on our wedding dresses. 


The train on a wedding dress is the long back portion of material that trails behind the bride. This particular feature is especially wonderful for making a stylish statement as you walk down the aisle to your future husband. Trains come in many different lengths, and the one that you choose will depend on the formality of the wedding, the venue, and your own personal style. Here are some of the most common train lengths. 


Sweep Train
This can also be referred to as a Brush Train. It is one of the shorter trains, sometimes only barely sweeping the floor but trailing no more than 12 inches behind the dress. This length is good for less formal weddings and outdoor weddings where the bride does not want too much fabric dragging along the ground.   

Court Train
Next in length we have the Court Train. It can trail anywhere between 1-3 feet behind the wedding dress.  

Panel Train
This train is made from a panel of fabric that is attached to the back of the bridal gown, usually at the waist. Generally it is detachable, making it easy to have a beautiful train for the wedding ceremony and go without one at the reception. Since it can be removed, you can often customize the length.  

Watteau Train
Offering a very elegant look, this type of wedding dress train is attached at the gown's shoulders and flows down the back. It usually falls loosely to the hem of the dress, but in some cases can be longer.  


Chapel Train
A Chapel Train trails behind the gown anywhere between 3.5-4.5 feet and falls from the waist. It is a very traditional train length.  

Cathedral Train
You can find both Semi-Cathedral, extending 4.5-5.5 feet behind the dress, and Cathedral, which trails 6.5-7.5 feet. This is generally worn for more formal weddings and makes a very dramatic statement. Once a train gets this long, you might consider having a train-bearer to help you down the aisle.  

Monarch Train 
This type of train can also be called a Royal Train, which makes sense, because this is the type of train you would expect to see at the wedding of a real live princess. It can be up to 12 feet long, and sometimes even longer!   


There are lots of choices when it comes to the length of your wedding dress train, and there are also many lovely shorter bridal gowns available if you don't want to bother with a train at all. If your train is not detachable, make sure that someone at our South Florida wedding dress store shows you how to properly bustle it so that you aren't tripping over your train at the wedding reception. When you are ready to begin your own bridal gown search, give us a call at Angelus Bridal and we will help you figure out which of these train types is the best one for your wedding.

5 Ways To Make Dad Feel Special On Your Wedding Day

June is not only a big wedding month, but it also contains the holiday where you honor the first man you ever loved... your dad! Father's Day falls on Sunday, June 18 this year, and because of that, our South Florida bridal salon has a few great ideas to share about how you can give Dad a little extra attention on your wedding day. 


Make him stand out. 
Angelus Bridal can set you up with our in-house tuxedo rental people so that you can pick out a special vest, tie, or style of suit that makes your father stand apart from the groomsmen in the wedding. Not too much so that he upstages the groom, but just enough to show everyone he is one-of-a-kind. Another way that you can do this is to give the bride's & groom's fathers special boutonnieres that are slightly different than the other men's. 

Give him a sentimental gift.
You can thank your dad for helping you get to this special day in your life by finding a sentimental gift that not only reminds him of raising you, but will remind him in the future of this special day. This could be a framed photo of the two of you from your childhood that has an extra slot to add a photo of you both from the wedding day. You could also give him a special necktie to wear with a sweet saying from you sewn into the back of it. 

Plan a pre-wedding daddy/daughter day. 
Before you head off to your grown-up married life (even if you haven't lived at home for years,) spend one day doing activities and visiting places that are fun for you and your father. Start at your favorite restaurant, go to a movie, feed the ducks at the city park, cheer on his favorite team at the ball park... you get the idea! It will leave you both with wonderful memories to cherish.

Take "First Look" photos with Dad
The "First Look" for a bride and groom is a well-known wedding day photo, but you don't have to limit yourself to that one. Many brides also choose to have their photographer capture the first time their bridesmaids see them in their wedding dress, all dolled up. This picture can be a special one to take with parents, too. It will be tough for Dad not to shed a tear when he first sees you in your bridal gown, right before he walks you down the aisle. What a special memory to capture! 

The father/daughter dance.
In addition to getting to walk the bride down the aisle, another special wedding moment for a father is the father/daughter dance. Ask your dad's opinion on the song he would like to dance to, or if you trust his musical style enough, give him free reign to pick the song himself. If he's not shy, you could even sneak in a choreographed surprise for the wedding guests.   


With a little bit of thought and planning, you can find all kinds of ways to make the people that you love feel special on your wedding day. It's a wonderful way to thank them for being a part of your life. 

When you come into Angelus Bridal & Formals, it's our pleasure to make you look and feel like the beautiful bride-to-be that you are! During your appointment, you will have our undivided attention, and we will search our collections to find you the most amazing wedding dresses in South Florida to try on and fall in love with. When you are ready to find that exquisite bridal gown, give us a call at 954-943-7768

Helpful Tips For Your Wedding Dress Fitting

Even when exact measurements are taken by an expert, it is very rare that your wedding dress will fit perfectly on every part of your body. Every woman is built differently, so most likely at least a few alterations will be needed once your bridal gown arrives. Angelus Bridal & Formals has put together a few tips to make sure your wedding dress fitting appointment goes smoothly. 


Buy the size your NEED...
not necessarily the size you hope to be by the wedding day. This tip pertains more to the wedding dress purchase rather than the fitting, but it's an important point to mention. Many brides think that if they order a bridal gown that is too small, it will encourage them to lose weight before the wedding. The problem is, if they don't, then they've got a dress that doesn't fit! A talented seamstress can work magic, but it's much simpler to make a dress smaller than to try to make it bigger. Adding too much fabric can drastically change the original look of the dress. 

It may help to remind you that no one will be seeing that size tag except for you, so it really doesn't matter what the number on it says. Ignore the number and pick a gown that looks and feels good. Also, if your body isn't necessarily the same size all over, buy to fit the larger part. Once again, it's easier to take part of the dress in than to let it out. 


Don't procrastinate. 
As soon as your wedding dress arrives at our South Florida bridal salon, get your first fitting scheduled, even if it's a few weeks away. The most convenient times always book up first, so the earlier you book, the better chance you have of getting a time that fits into your schedule. You want the seamstress to have plenty of time to make your alterations without having to rush through it. 

Always bring...
the shoes and undergarments that will be worn on the wedding day to every bridal gown fitting. The seamstress will be fashioning the adjustments to fit your body, and even the slightest change could make a huge difference. The size of the heel you have on affects where the hem will fall, and if you use a different bra than the one you had on at the fitting, the bodice of your wedding dress could end up too loose or too tight. 

Move around in the gown. 
Before any final alterations are made, move around in the gown to make sure it is comfortable. Walk, sit, even dance a little bit so that any problems with the fit can be addressed and you can be your most comfortable on the wedding day. 


Bring a helper to the final fitting. 
Wedding dresses often require a bit of assistance to get into, and your seamstress will know the best ways to get the gown on you and adjusted correctly. Bring someone with you to the final fitting so that they can be instructed on how to help you get ready on the wedding day. Also have someone show them how to properly bustle the dress for the wedding reception. Knowing how to do this will save a lot of time and unnecessary stress.

Use a seamstress you trust.
Angelus Bridal can connect you with one of our talented seamstresses that have been altering bridal gowns for many years and know exactly how to do it right. If you don't want to take our word for it, it may help you to look at reviews from past brides that they have worked with. Once you know that this is a person you can trust, you'll be much more comfortable leaving the alteration decisions to the experts. Our seamstresses know what works on each gown and what might not. You can give them your suggestions and know that they will be able to translate that into a wedding dress that fits as if it was designed specifically for your body. 


After you have purchased your dream bridal gown at our wedding dress store in Pompano Beach, we will be happy to point you in the direction of one of our talented seamstresses. Angelus Bridal is a one-stop bridal shop, so we'll not only help you find the perfect bridal gown, but we can also help you with many of the other decisions that need to be made for your wedding day. On-site you can talk with an alteration specialist, photographer, cake designer, makeup artist, florist, and even find tuxedos for the men in the wedding.

Spring Wedding Ideas

Spring is the season when nature is blooming in brilliant colors everywhere that you look. It gives you wonderful inspiration for gorgeous Wedding Gowns and other ideas for your perfect wedding. AngelusBridal.com has a few of our favorite ideas for a spring wedding to share with you in today's blog.



Spring colors

A lot of people lean toward using soft pastels for a spring wedding. The season brings to mind bright blue skies and big fluffy clouds. Soft shades of yellows, mint greens, and cherry blossom pinks are especially popular. Watercolor palettes are a hot trend this year.  

While many of the beautiful blooms that you will come across in the spring arrive in pretty pastels, there are plenty that show up in bright, bold hues too. Gerbera daisies, a wonderful spring flower, come in a beautiful variety of hot pinks, oranges, and sunny yellows.    

As far as your bridesmaid dresses go, there is no need to stick to only one color. Use a few different shades that complement each other, just like a colorful flower garden. Go one step further and put flowers directly on their dresses with fancy floral prints. 





Get outside.

Spring makes it tempting to host your wedding festivities outside. Everyone loves getting outdoors when it begins warming up, but the weather can be unpredictable. As with all outdoor activities, no matter what the season, have a backup plan in case of rain or a sudden drop in temperature.


As the sun goes down, there could be a slight chill in the air. Having warm blankets or throws available for your wedding guests is a thoughtful gesture. You can also plan to move the party indoors after the sun sets. 

"April showers bring May flowers" is a saying for a good reason. Rain showers can pop up unexpectedly in the spring. Consider incorporating umbrellas or parasols in your wedding decor. Umbrellas can take on double-duty for both rain and shading guests from the sun. 


Borrow from nature.

If you do choose to host all or a part of your wedding outdoors, picking a venue with lots of flowers and blooming trees surrounding it will do half of the decorating for you naturally. If you do need to add a little something, butterflies and love birds are wonderful spring symbols to use. A few flowers that are in season in the spring are:

  • Peony
  • Sweet Pea
  • Lilac
  • Ranunculus
  • Hydrangea
  • Tulip
  • Calla Lily
  • Gerbera Daisy
  • Magnolia
  • Rose

For any part of your wedding that will take place indoors, bring some of the outdoors inside with you. Flowering branches look beautiful in vases on a table. Long garlands of greenery with a few flowers tucked in here and there is perfect for long reception tables. You can even make a few edible centerpieces out of seasonal fruits like apricots, oranges, or strawberries.  

For the ceremony altar, use large potted plants or trees for decoration. A few twinkle lights arranged within them looks wonderfully romantic. Potted plants also make lovely centerpieces and favors for guests. 



Nature can be the source for some marvelous wedding inspiration. Hopefully the ideas above have also gotten your creative juices flowing.

6 Tips For Choosing Clothing For Your Engagement Photos

Before everyone sees you in that gorgeous wedding dress that you found in our South Florida bridal salon, you and your handsome groom can get dressed up and show off your love in beautiful engagement photos. In today's blog, Angelus Bridal & Formals has a few tips on how to decide what to wear for those romantic pictures. 


Be Yourself
These photos are meant to show people who you are as a couple. Stick to your regular personal style. Don't wear something that you'd normally never wear or that makes you uncomfortable, just be your beautiful selves. You may want to dress up a little more than usual, but don't try to look like someone you're not. The more comfortable you are, the more relaxed and natural your photos will look.  

Plan Ahead
Sticking to that "relaxed" theme that we just mentioned, you don't want to show up to your engagement photo shoot late and stressed out. Make your fashion decisions at least a week prior to the shoot so that you don't have to worry about it the morning of. Decide together if you want to dress formal or keep it casual. Remember that weather can change and surprise you, so account for that and prepare things that could come in handy, such as jackets, umbrellas, etc... (Rain doesn't have to ruin your pictures. It could add a unique and interesting element to them!)

Coordinate
You and your groom don't need to wear matching outfits, but you should choose clothing that compliments each other. Pick out colors that go well together, and you can even match certain elements to make the clothing tie in with each other. For example, if you outfit is blue and he's wearing khaki, he could add a blue tie or pair of socks for a matching element. 

Choose Colors Wisely
If your photos will be taken outdoors, you can pull color inspiration from the surroundings, and maybe even from the season you are shooting in. Plaids and warm colors work well for fall photo shoots, while bright, cheery colors look great on a summer day. Bright colors really tend to stand out in photographs, and if you wear something patterned, opt for bigger prints rather than small ones. 

Use Props
Bringing a few accessories that help to tell your story into the photos can be a fun idea. If you are both avid readers, or perhaps you met in a library, take a few shots peeking out from behind a book. For couples that are big sports fans, bring along some equipment, or even have part of your shoot take place on a playing field. If you want a more festive feel, pick up a bunch of colorful balloons to carry around for an added element of fun. Holding up blank signs allows you to add in words later to make customized thank you cards or save-the-date announcements.  

Get Goofy
Don't forget to have fun with this, as you should strive to do with everything surrounding your wedding. This is a magical time for the two of you, and you should enjoy every minute of it to the fullest. A good photographer should be able to help you loosen up and encourage you to be yourselves. Sometimes those impromptu photos taken when you've let your guard down turn out to be the very best shots.  


Those tips should help you to find something to wear to your engagement photo shoot that wonderfully tells your story. When you're ready to find something fabulous to wear on the actual wedding day, that's where our South Florida wedding dress store comes in! 

Angelus Bridal & Formals carries an amazing variety of wedding dresses to fit every woman's personal style. These bridal gowns are made with top quality fabrics and materials, and made available to you at the lowest cost possible, all with exceptional customer service.

5 Beautiful Ways To Incorporate Your Mother's Wedding Day Look Into Yours

Luckily, when it comes to wedding fashion, the best wedding dresses in South Florida have a timeless look that fits into any era. Wearing your mother's bridal gown is a lovely gesture, but many bride's prefer to find a special dress that they can call their own. You can easily incorporate your mom's wedding day look into yours without having to wear her entire dress. Angelus Bridal has listed a few of these creative ideas for you below. 


Wear Mom's Wedding Accessories
You can wear the jewelry or bridal veil that your mother wore in her wedding with your brand new wedding dress from our South Florida bridal salon. To make sure that those accessories work beautifully with the gown you choose, bring them along to your shopping appointment. One of our talented consultants can help you find a dress in your style that has elements to complement Mom's accessories. 

Carry A Piece Of Her Gown With You
You could also take a swatch of your mother's wedding dress to carry in your bouquet or as a handkerchief to catch all those happy tears. This can be taken from an inconspicuous area so that it doesn't damage the overall look of her gown. If there is a particular detail or embellishment that you love about the dress, our seamstress may be able to incorporate it onto your bridal gown in some way. 

Duplicate Her Bridal Bouquet
The flowers that you carry down the aisle are also a piece of your overall wedding day look. A talented florist will be able to make a bridal bouquet for you that matches, or at least resembles, the one that your mother carried down the aisle for her own wedding. You could add a sentimental moment into the ceremony by giving her a flower from it as you walk down the aisle, before you join your future husband at the altar. 

Copy Her Hairstyle
Bring Mom's wedding day look to yours by wearing your hair the way she wore hers. If it's an up-do, there may be a way to wear it like that for the ceremony, then "let your hair down" for the party at the reception. 

Recreate A Photo From Her Wedding
A very special memento for both you and your parents is to recreate a photo from their wedding day with your new groom. These will look amazing displayed next to each other. Go the extra step and have your photographer take a similar photo of Mom & Dad in the same pose all these years later. 


If you're the type of bride that wants her very own, brand new, fabulous wedding dress, that's perfectly understandable. This is your special day, and you deserve to show off your own personal style. The above ideas are both a wonderful way to honor your mother, and also a great way to keep from hurting her feelings if she wants you to wear her gown, but you don't want to. 

When you come in to our wedding dress store in Pompano Beach, let us know that you want to incorporate your mother's wedding day look into your own somehow. The wonderful staff here at Angelus Bridal & Formals can help you find something that both pays homage to your mom's dream dress while giving you the gown of your own dreams.

5 Wedding Fashion Tips For The Groom

Our main focus is generally making sure that the bride has access to the best wedding dresses in South Florida, but the groom needs to look incredible too. Angelus Bridal & Formals has pulled together a few tips to make sure that he looks his gorgeous best on your wedding day.


Be Inspired By Personal Style
A gentleman will most likely be dressing much nicer on his wedding day than on a regular day, but he should still look like the man you fell in love with. Don't pick out something stiff and uncomfortable just because it's the style you think should be worn to a wedding. Even a traditional suit can be dressed up to incorporate a touch of personal style with fun extras like a unique boutonniere, a special hat, a flashy tie, silly socks, or some accessory that makes the look all his.   

Dress For The Situation 
You also need to think about the time of year, the time of day, and the weather expected when you begin choosing the groom's attire. Comfort is key. A daytime wedding in the summer calls for clothing that is lighter in both weight and color. Evening affairs are generally a bit more formal, and darker shades look best. 

Stand Out 
Even if the groom will be wearing the same suit as his groomsmen, he needs to have a little something extra in his look so that he stands out from the crowd. This can be done by wearing a different colored vest or tie than the other guys, a different type of suit jacket, or possibly a unique boutonniere that makes a "groomy" statement. It's important that the groom is the obvious VIP at a glance. 

Get A Perfect Fit
If tuxedos are being rented, everyone's measurements need to be precise, but the groom's suit most definitely needs to be as perfect a fit as possible. Lots of care went into fitting the bridal gown and perfecting that look, and the groom needs to match the bride's magnificence! Always have a professional take the measurements for a rental, or choose to purchase a suit that fits correctly.  

Go Shoe Shopping 
Shoes can be rented when you rent a tuxedo, but they are not always the most comfortable choice. A good pair of dress shoes is something that every man should have in his closet, and this is the perfect occasion to pick up a brand new pair. That way you know for sure that they will fit like they should. Also, you will be able to break them in before the wedding so that they aren't stiff and uncomfortable, which will make it much easier to dance the night away!


Wedding Fashion Experts
Our South Florida bridal salon is a "one-stop-shop" when it comes to weddings, housing not only the most beautiful bridal gown store in Pompano Beach, but while you are here you can also rent tuxedos, as well as speak to a makeup consultant, photographer, cake designer, and more. Angelus Bridal has many years of experience in the wedding industry, and we're happy to answer any questions that you may have about the experience. Your wedding is a very special day, and we'll do everything in our power to make sure it's amazing for the both of you!

Tips For Finding Your Wedding Headpiece

You are the star of the day, your bridal gown brings your natural beauty and style forward, and the headpiece you choose is the crowning glory. (In some cases, it's actually a crown!) Our South Florida bridal salon is here to make sure you find that wedding dress you've always dreamed of, and once that's done, it's time to accessorize. Angelus Bridal & Formals has put together a few tips today to help you find the perfect bridal headpiece. 


Bridal Headpieces
There are lots and lots of different kinds of bridal headpieces for you to choose from. These include: barrettes, hair clips, hair combs, tiaras, crowns, fascinators, flowers, headbands, jeweled hair pins, hair ribbons, and more. Personal style will come into play when you are making a decision, but so will some of the tips listed below.   

Use The Dress For Guidance
All of your wedding accessories (headpiece, jewelry, shoes) should work together to create the stunning look you are aiming for. Use the embellishments on your wedding dress to guide the headpiece that you choose, and always remember to match your metals. If your gown has silver accents, lots of gold in your headpiece will most likely break up the unifying look you are shooting for. You want everything to look as if it were designed to be worn together.   

Decide On A Veil
First of all, decide whether or not you want to wear a veil with your wedding dress. If you do, it will need to fit in with the type of headpiece that you will have on. Decide which of the two is more important to you, pick it first, and then work on finding it's perfect match. Just like with the dress, these items should look as if they were made together. 

Look At It From Every Angle
Once you find a type of headpiece that you love, put it on and look at it from every possible angle in the mirror. Your wedding day photographs won't all be taken from one vantage point, so you will want to be sure that it looks just as incredible from the back and the sides as it does from the front.  

Think About Long-Term Wear
While looking amazing is high on the list, comfort is every bit as important. Be sure to pick out a headpiece that you will be able to wear throughout the entire ceremony and reception, unless you will be removing it once the vows are done and the party begins. 


Keeping all of those factors in mind when you are shopping for your wedding headpiece will help you to make a good decision. The talented consultants at our wedding dress store in South Florida can also be of great assistance. They match the perfect headpiece and veil to fabulous wedding dresses on a daily basis, and their input can help to make the entire process quicker and easier for you. 

As an added bonus, if you happen to find your dream bridal gown on your first visit to Angelus Bridal, we have a "Love at first sight 'pays'" program that will give you 20% off the purchase of a veil and headpiece. (Some great bridesmaid dress discounts too!) Make an appointment with us at our Pompano Beach bridal boutique and let us help you find the perfect wedding fashions to bring out your natural beauty for your special day.

Take The Stress Out Of Wedding Planning

April is Stress Awareness Month. Last week our blog brought you "7 Wedding Dress Shopping Myths Debunked" to take some of the stress out of bridal gown shopping. This week, Angelus Bridal & Formals has a few Do's and Don'ts to help take some of the stress out of the wedding planning process. 



DON'T procrastinate
One of the biggest stress inducers during wedding planning is running out of time and having to rush at the last minute. Start out with a timeline that lets you know when each task needs to be completed, and then stick to it as closely as possible. If procrastination is a problem for you, consider hiring a wedding coordinator to keep you on schedule.  

DO stay organized
Keep all or your wedding planning information (guests lists, contact information, decorating ideas, favorite wedding dress styles, etc...) in one central location. This can be a notebook or a digital planner on your computer or mobile device. With everything in one designated place, you'll never have to search for what you need. Also, keep a notebook with you at all times to jot down any brilliant ideas you have while on the go. 

DON'T say no to help
You may want to do it all yourself, but there's no reason that you have to. Delegate tasks that don't have to have your personal attention to family members or close friends that want to assist. If someone offers to help, find a job for them. That's just one more thing off of your list taken care of so you can move on to the next task. 

DO stick to your budget
Overspending may not cause a lot of stress right now, but you know it will be coming in the future when the bills are due. Don't fall into the trap of buying cute little things here and there that you might be able to use at the wedding every time you see one. Decide what's most important about your wedding day to you and your fiance, and designate a set amount of funds to go toward those things. If it's not on your "most important" list, you can probably do without it.  

DON'T hide your feelings
Keeping things bottled up only guarantees a big blow-up later on, and if that doesn't happen, you will just keep making yourself miserable by not letting people know how you truly feel. This is your big day, and if you don't like something about it, speak up. You can be honest without going all "bridezilla," and in the end you'll get what you really want and the stress or worrying about it will be off your shoulders. 



DO take time off
All work and no play... will drive you crazy! Don't let the planning consume your life. Schedule date nights with your fiance where you reconnect and all wedding-related topics are put aside for a few hours. If you feel a big ball of stress sneaking up on you, go get a massage, or sit outside with a relaxing cup of tea and some calming music playing in the background. Once you've had time to calm down and regroup, you can head back to the planning with a clear head. 

DON'T sweat the small stuff
If the place cards need to be computer printed instead of done with calligraphy by hand, your guests aren't going to mind and it won't ruin your wedding day. As a matter of fact, if there are no place cards at all, a pretty seating chart posted at the reception entrance will still get everyone to the correct table. Little extras like that are nice, but not necessarily important to making your wedding a successful event. Concentrate on the real important stuff, like the vows you will be saying to each other, and if the rest is stressing you out, let it go.

DO remember to enjoy it
This is one of the most special times in your life, so if at any point you're not enjoying it, change the way you're doing things! The wedding is all about the love you get to share for the rest of your lives. A happy occasion like that deserves to be fun throughout, not just at the end on the wedding day. 

Hopefully those tips will help to relieve a lot of the stress that wedding planning can cause. When it comes to shopping for the best wedding dresses in South Florida, we can take a lot of stress out of that task for you!
