Here is what a few of the women that found their dream dresses in our store had to say about Angelus Bridal & Formals.

"I purchased my wedding gown yesterday. It was my second visit with Rhonda and I can't say enough about the amazing experience I had. She made it so FUN and she knows what she is doing when it comes to what looks best on you. She helped me pick out my dream dress and I am beyond happy. The quality and prices of their dresses are unbeatable as I did lots of research before starting my visits. I also met the owner Coco! Thank you Coco for the great service as well, it was so great meeting you both and I can't wait to be back in town for my alterations."
~Mylene Forget, Google review


"Rhonda was amazing! She made me feel beautiful in every dress I tried on! She was very knowledgeable. I had been to several places and tried on multiple dresses and Rhonda helped me find the one!"
~Nicole, WeddingWire review



"I went with my friend (the bride) to Angelus Bridal in early February 2017 and absolutely loved the level of service and care provided. Rhonda and Yoli were energetic, attentive, and so positive that it was infectious. They were so willing to go above and beyond for my friend who has special circumstances leading up to her wedding and I know she really appreciated that, as well. I highly recommend Angelus Bridal and the shopping experience I had there!"
~Katherine Hall, Google review

"Rhonda seriously has the best advice to give....look her up at this store, she instinctively knows what you will look best in. And she is sooooo much fun.....head and shoulders above any other store experience."
~Jaqueline, WeddingWire review

"Angelus Bridal was amazing! I was looking for a dress with very specific requirements, and their sales lady, Rhonda, was the only person who actually listened to my request. She went right to the point and gave me a selection of great dresses all along my wishes.
Ordering was very easy, and the dress arrived the day expected. They have always been very kind, friendly and lovely people! I will go back for any other special events that may come!
Thank you for making me a happy bride!

Don't Wait! When To Book Vendors For Your Wedding

A lot of different vendors will be involved in making your wedding day dreams a reality. Not only do you want to find ones that match your personality and style, but you want to book them early enough that you don't miss out on your favorites. Angelus Bridal has a few suggestions to help you get the vendors you want when they are needed in the planning stages. 


Getting Started
It's never too early to start researching the different wedding vendors available in your area. Even if you won't be booking them right away, when it is time to start interviewing them, already having a list of the best ones will make things go faster. Find vendors whose work catches your eye, then check out their customer reviews on trusted sites like Wedding Wire, the Knot, or even Facebook. 

Once you have a list of possibilities for a particular category, you'll want to find out if they have your wedding date available. If so, make an appointment to meet with them. If there is a good chemistry between them and you, then they are a good match.  

When To Book Vendors
Some wedding vendors need to be sought out sooner than others, like photographers, who can only do one wedding a day. Others, such as cake bakers, can handle more than one wedding at a time, so you can seek them out a bit later in the planning stages. Here is a suggested timeline to get you started on that vendor search. 

  • 9-12 months out
    • Wedding Planner - This should be the 1st vendor that you book. The sooner they are on board, the sooner the rest of the planning can be taken care of. A wedding planner will handle lots of tasks for you, plus keep you on schedule. They will even have suggestions on talented, trustworthy vendors to help you knock out the rest of this list.  
    • Venue - Most venues can only handle one wedding at a time. You will want to book your dream wedding space before another bride and groom get it for the date you have chosen. Also, having this locked down can help with booking some of your other vendors. 
    • Photographer/Videographer - The best photographers get booked the fastest, so if you have one in particular whose work you are in love with, book them for your date ASAP. Another benefit of booking them early is that many offer package deals that include the engagement photo session, giving you pictures to use for announcements, wedding websites, and save-the-dates. Not everyone uses videographers, so they don't book up as quickly, but your photographer may offer this service or have someone in mind they like to work with. If not, you can put off booking a videographer closer to 6 months out.  
    • Entertainment - Depending on what type of entertainment you are looking for, booking times vary slightly. Bands often have their calendars booked at least a year in advance. That can be the case with DJs too, but many companies have a team of DJs available so that they can handle more than one wedding on a particular date.  
    • Save-the-Dates - If you are hosting a destination wedding, have a lot of guests that will be traveling from afar, or are getting married on a holiday, save-the-dates give your guests extra time to make plans to attend. These should be in the mail at least 6 months before the wedding date, so start searching early enough to choose a style, gather addresses, address the envelopes, and get them in the mail.
  • 10 months out
    • Wedding Dress - Once you find your dream wedding dress at our bridal salon in South Florida, it will need to be ordered in your size, and then once it arrives you will want plenty of time in case alterations are necessary. The sooner you start looking for your bridal gown, the sooner this can all be done, and you won't have to do a lot of rushing around before the big day. We do have some gorgeous wedding dresses available in our clearance section that can be bought off-the-rack. If you get lucky enough to find the perfect gown there, it will cut down on the extra delivery time needed, but you will still want enough time to schedule alterations, plus find the shoes, jewelry, headpieces, and other bridal accessories.  
  • 8-9 months out
    • Officiant - This is another vendor that can only be in one place at a time. Some do book multiple weddings on the same day, but in that case they will still need to have your wedding time available. 
    • Baker - Bakers can handle multiple wedding cakes in a weekend, but for quality work, they do have their limits. This isn't one of the first vendors you need to book, but if you have a special bakery in mind, don't wait too long. 
    • Caterer - If the venue you have booked provides catering, you can skip this step altogether. If not, start making tasting appointments around this time in planning so that you can narrow down the search and get your favorite booked while they are still available. Just like bakers, they can do more than one wedding, but they have their limits. 
    • Florist - This is another area where the vendor isn't limited to just one wedding a day, but the best ones book up first. Be aware that if you are getting married during prime "wedding season" (generally mid-summer and fall) they will probably have lot of other couples looking at your date too.
  • 4-6 months out
    • Invitations - You will need time to find the perfect style and decide on your preferred wording. Once that's done, your wedding invitations should be addressed and ready to mail out about 2 months before the wedding date.
    • Rentals/Decor - Any items that you plan to rent for your wedding (tablecloths, centerpieces, etc...) should be booked around this time. If you will be ordering items through the mail, allow enough time for them to arrive, and also to be exchanged in case of a mistake. 
    • Men's Attire - Around 4 months before the wedding, the groom, groomsmen, and fathers need to get measured for rental tuxedos or suits and get orders placed, or they need to find and purchase the clothing they will be wearing. Don't forget to make sure they all have proper shoes too. 
    • Transportation - Make sure plans are set for how the two of you will be arriving to and leaving the wedding. If you need to shuttle guests to the ceremony or reception, get the transportation booked no later than 4 months before the wedding date.

How To Avoid Frizzy Wedding Day Hair

There is an ancient proverb that goes, "A misty morning does not signify a cloudy day, it signifies frizzy hair." If you have the type of hair that "puffs up" when it gets too humid outside, you might be more worried about frizzy hair than rain on your wedding day. August just happens to be Anti-Frizz Month, so it seemed like the perfect time for us at Angelus Bridal & Formals to offer a few tips on how to tame your hair for the wedding day. 


What exactly is frizz? 
"Frizz" is what happens when the cuticle layer of your hair is raised, which allows moisture to pass through it and swell the strands larger than they normally appear. Women with curly hair tend to have more trouble with this than those with straight hair because curly hair is naturally drier. Sometimes frizz is the result of hair damage from heat styling or chemical treatments. How can you remedy this if it happens to you? Try the following tips. 

Find the right stylist.
The most important thing that you can do to assure the best wedding day hair is to find a hairstylist that knows how to handle your particular type of hair. Not all of them are experts at anti-frizz, and if this is a problem for you, not just any stylist will do. 

An expert on your particular type of hair will be able to make suggestions on the best style for your wedding day to avoid any trouble the weather could cause. They can also give you advice on how to properly take care of your hair on a daily basis to keep the frizz to a minimum. You might also consider keeping your stylist on-hand throughout the wedding day to make touch-ups as necessary, or at least have some extra bobby pins and a small can of hair spray close by all night to tackle any "fly-away" hairs. 

Proper Hair Care
The way that you wash, dry, and even comb your hair plays a big part in how it reacts to daily living. Using a sulfate-free, glycerin-packed shampoo is great for hydrating the hair from the inside out. When it comes to using conditioner, apply it from mid-shaft down to the ends. Putting conditioner directly on your roots can weigh the hair down. 

Next, run a wide-tooth comb, not a brush, through damp hair while it is still conditioning. When you're ready to dry it, gently blot hair with a towel, never rub it. This raises the cuticles, which causes more frizz. Lastly, let your hair air-dry as much as possible before blowing it dry. The heat from the dryer can damage it too.  

Condition Regularly
Hot oil treatments and a weekly hydrating mask go the extra mile for keeping your hair from being dry and frizzy. There are lots of products out there specifically made to keep hair looking smooth and shiny. Once again, your hairstylist should be able to give you some excellent advice based on your particular hair needs. Then, the two of you can decide on the perfect hairstyle for your special day. 


Our bridal boutique in South Florida can help you find the bridal headpieces, hair accessories, and veils to complement that perfect frizz-free hairstyle. Once you've picked out your dream dress, one of our the consultants at Angelus Bridal can show you the accessories that bring your beautiful bridal gown up to to a whole new, exquisite level.

Off-the-Shoulder Wedding Dresses - A Trend That We Absolutely LOVE!

Trends in fashion change often, and even if one goes away, that trend seems to make its way back around again eventually. We especially see this in our South Florida weddings dresses. Every year one or two dress elements stand out and become the most sought after, yet the difference with wedding fashion is that there is always a thread of classic and traditional looks mixed in too. Right now, a trend that many brides are in love with (and so are we at Angelus Bridal & Formals) is the off-the-shoulder bridal gown.  


Brides have been searching for off-the-shoulder wedding dresses for a while now, and from the looks of the runways, this fall that look is still going to be one of the most wanted. Along with this style, we also expect to be seeing a lot of women wearing tiered skirts and embellishments such as ruffles and feathers. For today, though, we are putting our focus on those irresistible shoulder-baring dresses. 


A strapless gown is a classic wedding look that will always be around, but this year the off-the-shoulder style has taken over some of that popularity. It's kind of a "hint" of shoulders rather than showing them off completely. We think that is a very mysterious and elegant look. A strapless bridal gown can have the appearance of an off-the-shoulder dress simply by adding a bridal jacket or wrap on top. 



With the help of an illusion neckline, you can boast the off-the shoulder look, but with the comfort of knowing that the shoulders will stay in place during the entire celebration. Finding an expert seamstress to alter the gown exactly to your body will also help with the proper fit of any dress. 

Don'g forget about the bridesmaids! This off-the-shoulder fashion will look stunning on all of your ladies too. It's always looks nice when the bridesmaid fashions compliment the bride's gown, coordinating similar elements in each to make a uniform look. 


As for accessories, the runways are predicting that brides will be wearing big, bold jewelry and headpieces. You can always go a little bigger with the accessories around your face when there is less dress around your neckline. Tiaras and large floral headpieces are also an excellent way to accessorize your wedding dress. 


No matter what type of gown you choose at our wedding dress store in South Florida, if you fall in love with it and make the purchase on your first trip to our bridal boutique, we will give you 20% off of your veil and headpiece. When you come in for your shopping appointment at Angelus Bridal, just ask about our "Love at first sight pays" promotion. 

With that deal, your bridal party gets a discount too! Bridesmaid dresses priced at $159.95 or more are $30 off, and bridesmaid gowns priced below $159.95 are 10% off. Not only will we help you find the most fabulous wedding fashions, we'll do it at an affordable price!

Happy Customers

"I cannot say enough great things about this place. Rhonda is BEYOND helpful. She helped me find a dress ONE day before I was getting married, literally 24 hours before I was getting married, and made sure she could accommodate everything I was looking for. She was knowledgeable, compassionate, and made me VERY excited about what I was doing. I wish I could give her more than 5 stars in all of those categories, she makes you feel like you are the only person in the entire place. She made the entire experience one to never forget. It is hard to find the exceptional customer service that Rhonda provided to us on Thursday February 2, 2017. Incredible experience, she made my special day everything I could have hoped for in LESS than 24 hours. How amazing. Thanks again Rhonda!!!"
~Brittany, Wedding Wire review

"Such a friendly store!!! The owner was so nice and accommodating. They have so many wonderful dresses to choose from. Large selection. One of the best in South Florida and totally affordable. They also do great inexpensive alterations. Love the family feel to this place.
Highly recommend putting them on your list for the search for your perfect wedding dress.
"
~Talisha M, Yelp review

"Rhonda has seriously the best advice to give....look her up at this store she instinctively knows what you will look best in. And she is sooooo much fun.....head and shoulders above any other store experience."
~Jaqueline, Wedding Wire review


"I had such an amazing experience here! Came shopping with my MOH and mother. The owner and his wife are there and have the cutest personalities. My bridal consultant was perfection: listened to what I wanted, helped me narrow down my style, and helped me find THE ONE! The pricing on their dresses is way less expensive than going down to Miracle Mile in Miami and a much more enjoyable experience. I would HIGHLY recommend this to anybody for wedding dress shopping."

Helpful Tips For Finding Your Perfect Wedding Day Shoes

Once you've browsed through our wonderful selection of gorgeous wedding dresses in South Florida and found the bridal gown you always dreamed of, it's time to accessorize! Many things can be added to enhance your wedding day look, like bridal belts, jewelry, headpieces, and veils. One thing in particular that you should take special care in choosing is the pair of shoes you will wear on the big day. Angelus Bridal has a few tips to help you make that decision.  


Buy shoes early.
Your wedding shoes are an item that you will need to have before your first bridal gown fitting. They will affect the hem of your dress, so for a perfect gown length, you will need to have the exact shoes you will be walking down the aisle in at every fitting. Another advantage to having your shoes well before the wedding day is that you will have the chance to break them in for better comfort, plus the more you practice walking in them, the more graceful you will look walking down that aisle. 

Choose comfort!
First and foremost, go for comfort. You will be wearing these shoes for a very long time and doing a lot of walking, standing, and dancing in them. That means you will need shoes that don't hurt your feet after an hour or two. Even if you've dreamed of wearing fabulous stiletto heels, if you won't be able to walk without limping the next day, it's probably not worth it. 

Think hard about heel height.
This will not only affect your comfort, but also the length that your gown will need to be altered to. Try to stick to a heel height that you are used to wearing and already comfortable walking in. 

Also, consider how the heel you choose will work at the venue. If you are getting married on a beach, then sandals are a wise choice, or possibly go barefoot and have a pair of shoes put aside to wear at the reception. On the other hand, if you want a higher heel and your venue has nice, flat surfaces to walk on, you should be fine. 

Decide: Elaborate or Simple
This may depend on how much your shoe can be seen with the wedding dress you have chosen. For a floor-length gown, a simple shoe may be enough because it won't really show much. If the shoes will barely peek out below the hem, you might want to pamper yourself with a manicure and pretty shade of polish and go with a peep-toe shoe. 

For the bride that's a bit of a shoe fanatic, a shorter dress allows you to show off an elaborately designed shoe. Make sure that it complements your bridal gown rather than competes with it for attention. If you want to add an exciting pop of color to your wedding fashion, your shoes are a great place to do that.  

Pick a backup pair.
It's always good to be prepared for anything. That way you can avoid many mishaps on the wedding day. In case a heel breaks or a shoe gets left behind or misplaced, you should have a simple back-up pair of the same heel-height ready and waiting to "step" in. 

Having a back-up pair of wedding day shoes also allows you to change your shoes during the celebration. Sometimes simply putting on a new pair can make tired feet feel like new again. Keep in mind, though, that if you will be changing to a more comfortable pair of shoes for the reception and have a floor-length gown, they should be the same heel height as your original pair to avoid the dress dragging the ground. 


Finding the right pair of shoes not only completes your wedding day look, it can also be a lifesaver when you keep the comfort factor in mind. The helpful consultants at our South Florida bridal boutique will be happy to make some suggestions on the type of shoe that may work best with the wedding dress you decide on. Everyone at Angelus Bridal & Formals is here to help you achieve the look you are striving for to help you reach your beautiful best on the r wedding day. After all, a happy bride is our favorite kind, and happy ladies are always gorgeous!

Roles the Members of Your Wedding Party Play

A wedding is a great big, wonderful production that takes a lot of planning to accomplish. The bride and groom aren't expected to do everything by themselves, and the first people that you should turn to for help are your immediate family and the people that have agreed to be in your wedding party. 


The wedding party is the couple's supports team made up of their closest friends. They care about the couple and should be happy to help anywhere that they are needed. After all, these are the the people that are almost as happy as you are about your new marriage! 

Angelus Bridal & Formals has put together a list of traditional duties that the members of your wedding party take care of. Weddings of today don't always stick strictly to these "job" assignments, but they are a great starting point for deciding who will do what. Start with these lists, then adjust them to fit your specific needs. 

Maid/Matron of Honor
This is the bride's right-hand-woman, serving as her personal assistant and head bridesmaid. The maid of honor is in charge of coordinating the other bridesmaids, making sure that they are kept informed about pre-wedding parties, fittings, etc... She will organize the bridal shower and bachelorette party, and she may assist the bride in finding her wedding dress. 

On the wedding day, the maid of honor will help the bride get dressed, make sure her dress is bustled if needed, and prepare her for the walk down the aisle, plus straighten her gown and train for the walk back up the aisle after the ceremony. She will hold onto the groom's wedding ring, hold the bride's bouquet during the ring exchange, and sign the marriage license as a witness. During the reception, she may be asked to give a toast, and she stays near the bride to make sure her needs are taken care of.

Bridesmaids
These ladies make up "Team Bride." They should be available to assist the bride with wedding planning tasks. They help the maid of honor host and pay for the bridal shower and bachelorette party. At the wedding reception, they are there to answer guests' questions and keep the party going on the dance floor. 

Best Man
This is the groom's "go-to-guy!" He serves in the role of head groomsmen, coordinating the other men in the wedding party when it comes to attire, fittings, and suit rentals. He is the one in charge of organizing the groom's bachelor party. 

The best man is tasked with making sure that the groom gets to the church on time, and in good shape. He will hold the bride's ring, and he will sign the marriage license after the ceremony. If the officiant is not paid prior to the wedding, he will make sure the officiant receives a payment envelope after the ceremony. 

At the reception, the best man is there to assist the groom with anything he may need, and he will organize the toasts being made, starting with one of his own. Lastly, he will make sure the getaway car is ready for the couple before they leave, and the best man is in charge of making sure that any suit rentals are returned. 

Groomsmen
These fellas are the men that assist the best man in making sure the groom is taken care of. They will help to host and pay for the bachelor party. They may greet guests before the ceremony begins, and at the reception they will make sure everyone is having a good time. 


Ushers
If you will not have ushers in your wedding party, the groomsmen can step into this role. They are there to make sure guests find their seats for the ceremony, release the rows after the ceremony, and make sure everyone knows where to go for the reception. 

Flower Girl
Today we have seen flower girls of every age, even grandmothers! Generally though, this role is filled with a young girl. Her job is to sprinkle flower petals down the ceremony aisle for the bride to walk upon on the way to her groom. Your flower girl should attend the rehearsal to get comfortable with what will be happening on the wedding day. Introducing her to the rest of the wedding party can help to make her feel more at ease when it is time to walk down the aisle. 

Ring Bearer
A young boy is often asked to carry the couple's rings down the aisle to hand to the maid of honor and best man. A pillow with ribbons to tie the rings to is a classic way to transport them, or he may carry an elegant box with the rings inside. If you don't want to trust your wedding rings to someone so young, it is not uncommon to use symbolic rings in their place. He should also attend the wedding rehearsal so that he knows what will happen and get can comfortable with the rest of the wedding party.  

Your wedding party is there to make sure your wedding dreams come true after all of that planning you have done leading up to the big day. Let them help with the details to make it easier for you to relax and enjoy it all. 


Our Pompano Beach bridal salon is here to make sure all of your wedding fashion dreams come true! Not only will we make sure you find the bridal gown you have been dreaming of, we can also help you outfit everyone else in your wedding. We carry the most beautiful bridesmaid dresses in South Florida, and if you take advantage of our "Love At First Sight" promotion, your bridesmaids can get a discount on the price of their gowns. 

Angelus Bridal & Formals also carries gorgeous gowns for the mothers of the bride and groom, plus we have an in-house tuxedo shop so that you can make sure all of the men in your wedding look their best too. Make an appointment soon to come in and see everything we have for your very special day.

10 Wedding Tips You May Not Have Thought About

There are so many things to think of when you are planning a wedding, it can be tough to cover all of your bases. For many things in life, practice makes perfect, but a wedding is most often a once-in-a-lifetime event. In this case, using the experience of women that have already lived through their own wedding is a great way to discover tips to make it all easier. Here are ten great ones that we've come across from some of the brides we've met at Angelus Bridal & Formals

  • Ask your photographer to get a shot of you from behind as you begin your walk down the aisle that captures the look on all of your guests' faces as they see you in your bridal gown for the first time.
  • Ask your caterer to pack a to-go box of food to set aside for you and your groom. Couples often forget to eat at their own reception and end the night famished.
  • Giving the DJ a list of "Do NOT Play" songs is just as important as a list of songs you want to hear. If there are any tunes you absolutely hate, let them know ahead of time.
  • Ask someone you trust to take care of "post-wedding" tasks, like transporting wedding gifts, collecting decorations, and returning rentals. You'll be too preoccupied (and possibly exhausted) at the end of your wedding to think about those things.
  • Don't wear a bra or socks while getting ready for wedding day. They can leave marks on your back and shoulders and around your ankles that may not go away before it's time to walk down the aisle.
  • Have a button-up shirt or robe to wear for wedding day hair and makeup. You won't have to ruin the beautician's beautiful work by pulling a shirt over your head.
  • Bring straws to drink out of while you are getting ready for the wedding. This will help to keep your lipstick from smudging.
  • Put hand lotion on right before the ceremony begins. This will help the wedding ring to slip on more easily.
  • Make sure your entire wedding party has something to eat before the wedding begins. It may be a long day and it could be quite a while before you all have another chance to eat.
  • If you have lots of gorgeous flowers leftover at the end of your wedding, make arrangements to donate them to a nursing home or hospital. 

Those are a few of the best tips we have learned from the brides that have come through our South Florida bridal boutique. When it comes to finding the perfect wedding dress to wear on your special day, we've got quite a few tips of our own!

More Than Bridal Gowns! - 7 Amazing Things You'll Find at Angelus Bridal

South Florida's best bridal salon features the best wedding dresses in Pompano Beach, but that's not all! Our store is filled with gorgeous gowns for every woman and every special occasion, plus the beautiful accessories to go along with them. Read on to find out more about what you will find inside Angelus Bridal & Formals. 


#1 - Exquisite Bridal Gowns
Even though we truly are more than just a wedding dress store, you will find such an enormous selection of amazing bridal gowns here that we had to start the list with them. 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


#4 - Fashionable Special Occasion Dresses
Our fashions look incredible at any special occasion, not just weddings. Whether you are going out on the town for an extraordinary evening, a performance, a holiday party, or some other memorable occasion you want to look exceptional for, we can help. You are sure to find something perfect among the unique styles in our collections to fit whatever you happen to be celebrating. 

#5 - Amazing Quinceanera Dresses
When a beautiful girl is ready to celebrate becoming a young lady, our quinceanera dresses in South Florida offer fashions that will wow any crowd. 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.  


The last thing that you will always find at Angelus Bridal & Formals that isn't a fashion item is the excellent customer service that we strive to provide every woman that walks through our doors. Our talented consultants will give you their undivided attention during your shopping appointment, listening to your needs and desires, then helping you to find the style that looks and feels amazing on you. 

If you have something coming up soon that you need to look fabulous for, make an appointment to come in and try on the gorgeous gowns at our special occasion dress store in South Florida. We can't wait to put you into something breathtaking!
