There will always be wedding traditions. But don’t fret, ladies! Although there are “rules” that are great to follow, there are actually some that can be broken! Often, as brides, we tend to be scared to break away from the norm or the usual “beliefs” that are imposed to us by family, friends, or society in general. Here at Bride and Breakfast, we’re out to tell you that it’s ok to take the road less traveled… so we’ve come up with a list of ten Bridal Myths that we’ll gladly bust for you!
Myth #1: Beadless and sequin-less gowns are just not formal enough!
At some point in time, it became the usual practice to put some sort of beadwork for bridesmaid dresses. Today, this tradition is still common, but is not a hard and fast rule. The fear of most is that the gowns will look informal and inelegant. This is actually far from the truth. Beadless gowns look young, fresh, and effortless. If you want to glam it up a bit, make your brides wear fun accessories such as statement earrings, necklaces, or bracelets. Or even using stylish minaudieres can complete the look.

Myth #2: I need to wear “Bridal Shoes”.
This day and age is probably the most fun time to be a bride, since it’s actually quite acceptable for you to wear any fashionable shoe that is pretty and fits your personality. You don’t necessarily have to wear white, cream, or nude–a variety of colors (and styles) work well with wedding gowns. Another tip I would give is to choose a shoe that you can wear after the wedding–it’s way more cost-efficient that way.
Myth #3: Beautiful gown = “beautiful” wedding.
Couples need to start approaching wedding style with an overall cohesive approach. Sometimes brides get focused on just having a beautiful gown and think that it’s the end-all-be-all of the wedding look. The key here is balance and coherence. If your gown is too grand and everything else in the wedding is bare and simple, then there is a disconnect with the overall look. Another thing to consider is matching your gown style to your wedding theme. For example, a modern dress goes with a modern theme, but a vintage gown won’t. So if you want a laid back vibe for your decor, then you can also pick out a gown design that also reflects that easy and laid back vibe.
On the list of things I love about weddings (and mind you, it’s a very long list!), the couple’s happy disposition during the day would rank at the top. And that’s why I enjoyed looking through Henrik and Ria’s set. Their gleeful smiles and their look of love pretty much sums up why I’m having such a good, good morning today. You’ll see what I’m talking about in a few! Quick now, let these Jeff and Lisa Photography snaps put you in a great mood as well. Enjoy, lovelies!
This set from Jeff and Lisa Photography is truly something extremely and ravishingly romantic. You might say I’m being overly dramatic, but I’m pretty sure you’ll feel the same way when you get to the bottom of the post. That invite suite, the gorgeous bridal bouquet, the perfect colors of the bridesmaids dresses, and the reception details are utterly mesmerizing. It’s safe to say I’m in love with Ralph and Paula’s wedding! So this Monday morning, why don’t you join me in this major swoon fest? Enjoy!
When it comes to wedding shoes, one size definitely does not fit all. You have to consider the heel length, the budget, and the design, among other things. But more than what I mentioned (take note of this, girls), it has to have that perfect Cinderella fit!
Of course, Bride and Breakfast is here to help you. Whether you are buying it in the mall or having it custom-made, we’ve compiled shoe designs you just might fall in love with! Enjoy!
And remember, getting your shoes worn in weeks or days before the big day is a must! Trust me, you do not want aching to numb toes during and after the wedding! You can thank me later!
