One of my favorite wedding trends is mix-and-match bridesmaid dresses – and I imagine bridesmaids appreciate the opportunity to pick a dress that fits and flatters their individual size and style. But finding dresses that coordinate without being identical can be a little tricky, which is where Brideside comes in!

Founded by two friends who decided that it was time being a bridesmaid was more fun and inspiring, Brideside makes it super easy to find the perfect dresses for your bridal party.

Search the carefully curated collection of over 120 designer dresses (including many exclusive styles), or browse the real wedding galleries for inspiration. Then use the Brideside closet to save favorite dresses, and invite your ladies to view and comment on your picks. Once you’ve narrowed it down, Brideside will deliver a box full of dresses for your bridesmaids to try on at home – it doesn’t get any easier than that!

I have to say, I’m really excited about Brideside‘s newest partnership with Joanna August – known for carefully crafted silhouettes, these beautiful dresses will work for just about any body type (thank you elastic waist bands and wrap styles!).

So what are you waiting for? Make your bridal party vision a reality with Brideside! And just to get you that much more excited, here’s a little clip of how Brideside brings the bridal boutique experience online and to your front door…

Looking for a totally unique venue? How about an historical ship that now acts as a one-of-a-kind hotel? Bailey and Andy decided to do just that, tying the knot on The Queen Mary in a wedding full of vintage style.

Why did you choose this location?  We chose to get married in California because our families are from different areas of the United States, and we wanted to have everyone travel and make a vacation out of it. We chose the Queen Mary in particular because it was so different and the ship itself is incredibly beautiful. The Art Deco décor of the ship makes you feel like you are stepping back in time and we both loved that.

Did you include any traditions in your wedding?  During the reception my family did a circle dance in memory of my grandfather. It is a family tradition we do whenever we’re together.

What advice do you have for other brides?  Don’t sweat the small stuff, everything will work out they way it is supposed to. Also, hire a wedding coordinator. Halleigh Hill at Moment Privé was incredible and did so much organizing for our wedding.

    I can’t figure out the best way to describe this Stephanie’s romantic Marchesa dress, except to say that I love how unusual and beautiful it is! It’s always so fun to see a bride showing her personal style in her wedding day attire. And the rest of the wedding is just classic wine country elegance at its best, from Meg Smith and Laurie Arons.

    A little something blue in the vintage handkerchief tied around Stephanie’s bouquet.

    Bridesmaids complemented the bride’s romantic look in blush pink chiffon.

    Lavender lemonade…  yum!

    Dinner started with a salad of Fresh Peaches with Shaved Parmesan, Basil Purée and Wild Arugula, followed up by Smoked Filet Mignon with Tarragon Butter, Mascarpone Whipped Potatoes, and Local Baby Vegetables. For dessert, Perfect Endings created a lemon-accented cake with ombre sugar petals.

    Stephanie’s advice for other brides? “Take a moment with your husband to step away from the party and savor the beautiful energy of the night. You’ll remember that talk forever.”

    Why did you choose this location for your wedding?  The property took our breath away the moment we saw the beautiful lake surrounded by willow trees and vineyards. We had always wanted an outdoor wedding in a stunning natural setting that could stand on its own, requiring little decoration. We really loved how we could use different areas of the property for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. We had fun leading the guests from the lake up to the terrace where we dined and danced under the stars.

    What inspired you when you were planning your wedding?  The wispy willow trees that surrounded the lake. We incorporated willow tree artwork in the wedding invitations and wedding programs.

    What was your favorite moment or part of the day?  During our sendoff at the end of the night, our family and friends gathered around our white Packard convertible with sparklers that lit up the dark night sky. Suddenly, our friends broke out in song to “Na Na Hey Hey Goodbye” as we were getting into the car. The singing was such an unexpected bonus and made the sendoff all the more special. As we drove off, I cuddled up to my new husband with blankets and champagne as we drove along the dark streets of St. Helena toasting to our magical day.

    Did you include any traditions in your wedding?  During the ceremony, we surprised our parents by having them bless our rings before we said our vows. It was a fun way to incorporate our families (and sneak a hug) during that special moment.
