All About The Mermaid Wedding Dress Silhouette

When it comes to wedding dress styles, there are many different silhouettes to choose from. Venus Bridal offers lots of different choices, but today we will be focusing on the mermaid silhouette. It's a very popular bridal gown style that may be exactly what you are looking for. If not, there are many more to try on, but for today, let's take a look at this amazing silhouette. 


Venus Bridal, mermaid wedding dress, bridal gown, 1

First of all, you may be wondering why it is called "mermaid." One look at this stunning bridal gown silhouette is probably all the answer you need. The bodice is very fitted through the torso and hips, down past the thighs. Further down the leg the skirt flares out, much resembling a fishtail. It's an extremely dramatic and glamorous style of wedding dress, yet still has an air of playfulness to it. Everything about it reminds one of the mystical and mythical sea beauty, the mermaid. 



While the skirt on every mermaid wedding dress is pretty much the same, only different depending on the fabric being used, the bodice is where the details give you different looks. Designers get creative by using a variety of different types of lace, beading, sequins, fabrics, and more.  

This particular silhouette is not right for every body type, but you'll never know until you try one on. Generally, it is most flattering on tall, slender bodies with classic hourglass figures. It accentuates the illusion of the curves because of the flared skirt, and can be very flattering to the chest and buttocks. If these are areas that you do not want to highlight, then this may not be the right wedding dress shape for you.




If you are considering buying a mermaid style bridal gown, there are a few additional things that you will want to keep in mind for the wedding day. First of all, this style makes an extremely dramatic statement on its own. You may not have the need for a lot of additional accessories to get the look you want. 

Also, the fit can be difficult to walk in. While you are at the bridal shop, remember to not only stand still in front of the mirror to see what you look like, but move around in the dress too. You will want to know how comfortable it will be for you to walk down the aisle and dance at your reception before making your decision.  



When you make a shopping appointment at a wedding dress store near you, ask for Venus Bridal by name. We not only offer a brilliant selection of stunning mermaid style bridal gowns, but also a wonderful variety of every other style imaginable. Browse all of our designs on the website, then use the "Where To Buy" tab to find a store nearest you.

Inspirational Wedding Proposal Stories

Last week we mentioned the fact that we are in the midst of engagement season. That blog featured 7 Thing To Do After You Say "YES!", and today Venus Bridal decided to offer a little inspiration for anyone that has been thinking about popping the question. Also, we can't seem to get enough of these amazing stories and videos!  


Many Different Ways To Propose
A proposal doesn't have to be elaborate, but the element of surprise is always a great way to make it extra special. The people in these videos made them short and sweet, but the reactions were big and tearful. (Happy tears!) 



On the other hand, some people put an enormous amount of thought, time, planning, and effort into their proposal. The video below took some skill to pull off, and the help of their family and friends.  




Powerful Words & Actions
Not everyone gets their magical proposals on video (note to guys: try to at least have someone secretly photograph it.. she'll love it!) but if you use your imagination, you can picture the reactions received from the following proposal stories.

From WhoWhatWear.com:
"She's American. He's Irish. They met in Italy and started out as friends. Friends who liked each other A LOT. But after months of just friends, she thought she read the signals wrong, until one night at the bar he slipped her a napkin. 'I really like you,' he had written. Fast-forward four years and many international adventures later, and they are sitting at a bar in Berlin reminiscing. He pulls a napkin out of his pocket. She takes it, confused. 'Years ago I told you I liked you just like this. Now I'm asking: Will you marry me?' it read."


From HowHeAsked.com
We met at a Halloween party on October 29th, 2011. On October 29th, 2015, the 4 year anniversary of when we met, Chris decided to go to Disneyland dressed as Cinderella and Prince Charming for Halloween. Cinderella has always been my favorite princess so I was beyond excited! 

We are walking towards the castle to take a picture when Chris tells me that it’s 11:11 and I need to make my wish, a ritual we usually always partake in. I closed my eyes and made a wish. When I opened them, Chris pointed towards the castle where his brother, who was also dressed in costume, walking towards us with a real glass slipper on a purple pillow. He said to me “I’m here to present Cinderella with her glass slipper.” 

I sat down on the bench when Chris grabbed the slipper and put it on my foot. It fit me perfectly. He said “happy anniversary babe.” And I was beyond thrilled to have a real glass slipper just like Cinderella. But then, he stood me up and his brother turned the pillow over to reveal the ring he had been holding on the bottom the whole time. I was in complete shock and speechless. Chris grabbed the ring and got down on one knee. It’s safe to say all my dreams came true that day. I had never felt more like a princess and it was such a magical moment.


Don't Sweat The Small Stuff
Even if the plans don't go exactly the way you want them to, it's the end result that really matters. Your dream proposal may not go off without a hitch, but that's okay because... you're getting married!  




Now It's Time To Plan The Wedding!
After the excitement dies down enough to move forward (because that excitement is too good to go away completely!) it's time to make a list and start wedding planning. When you get the the "find a wedding dress" portion of your list, Venus Bridal offers a wonderful selection of bridal gown collections that work well with any bride's personal style. 

We've also got amazing dresses for your bridesmaids, and even the mothers of the bride and groom. Take a look through your choices at www.VenusBridal.com, then find a store near you so that you can begin trying a few on.

It's Engagement Season - 7 Things To Do After You Say "YES!"

We are in the midst of engagement season, which is the time between Thanksgiving and Valentine's Day when many couple become engaged. If you are like all of us here at Venus Bridal, you'll immediately want to start shopping for your beautiful wedding dress, but there are a few other things that you may want to take care of first. 



Share The Big News
Once you and your soon-to-be-spouse have had enough time to enjoy the moment yourselves, start spreading the news to your family and closest friends. The sooner the better, because you don't want anyone finding out through the grapevine that you prefer to tell in person. As soon as they all know, you are free to share your joy with the rest of the world too.  

Pamper Your Hands & Nails
Make an appointment as soon as possible for a manicure, because you know that everyone will be asking to see that engagement ring. Start a good skincare routine for your hands and keep your nails strong and in shape so that they are ready for the close-up ring photos at the wedding in a few months too.  

Start "Window Shopping" For Dresses
It's time to start scouring wedding magazines, Pinterest, wedding websites, etc... to discover all of the possibilities for your wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, and fashions for the guys too. A great place to start is www.VenusBridal.com. There you will find a wide variety of gorgeous gowns, plus a store locator so that you can find a bridal boutique near you when you are at the actual shopping stage of your wedding planning.



Set The Wedding Budget
Doing this early on will help to keep all of your plans in line without breaking the bank. It's wise to have a guideline for what you want to spend before you start buying things and making reservations. Decide this early so that you can begin finding the vendors that book up quickly, like venues and photographers. Knowing your budget can also assist in keeping the next step under control.

Gather Guest Lists
You may think you have time to worry about this later, but much like the budget, knowing the number of guests you will be inviting will shape many of your other wedding planning decisions. Start with four lists: the bride's, the groom's, the bride's parents, and the groom's parents. Put these all together, then begin make adjustments as needed.  

Schedule Engagment Photos
Many wedding photographers include the engagement session with their wedding packages, but it's up to you to pick a date to have them actually done. The sooner you take care of this, the quicker you will have professional photos to use on announcements, save-the-dates, and wedding websites. 

Make Bridal Shop Appointments
When the wedding dress shopping starts, it's best to call ahead and make an appointment at the bridal boutique. Brides-to-be with appointments get the undivided attention they deserve from the consultants, and they don't have to wait in line for a dressing room if there are lots of other women there at the same time. Also, many wedding dress stores require you to have an appointment, so it's always best to call ahead. 



There will be a lot more decisions to make before the actual wedding day, but getting the tasks above out of the way is a great place to start. It may seem overwhelming at first, but there are plenty of fun tasks to tackle along the way, like shopping for your dream wedding dress. When you're ready for that one, as well as all of the other fashions for the women in your wedding, we hope you begin your search with Venus Bridal. You won't be disappointed.

5 Wedding Dress Shopping "Don'ts"

He proposed, you said yes, and now it's time to get that dress! Your wedding is one of those extra special moments that you will want to be as perfect as possible, and finding the most beautiful bridal gown is a big part of making that happen. 

Shopping for wedding dresses is not something that a woman does often, so Venus Bridal has put together a list of things that you definitely do not want to do. Follow these tips and your shopping trip should be successful and fun. 



DON'T go in clueless.
Even though you may be tempted to rush out the day after the proposal and start trying on bridal gowns, don't do that. Going at it without any type of research or planning could result in a very confusing and overwhelming experience. 

Begin by looking at bridal magazines and browsing websites like www.VenusBridal.com. This will give you an idea of the types of gowns you favor, and that information will help the bridal boutique's consultant know which wedding dresses to bring out first. 

When you are ready to head to the bridal shop, always call first to see if an appointment is necessary. Some require a reservation, and even if they don't, if they know you are coming, you are more likely to get the individual treatment you deserve instead of having to fight with other shoppers for the consultant's attention

DON'T be shy.
Once you are at the bridal gown store, this is the time to speak up and ask any and all questions that you may have about your wedding fashions. The bridal consultants at the store work with these dresses every day, and a good salon will have trained their employees to be experts. Trust that they can guide you in the right direction and be open to their knowledge and suggestions. 

Also, don't be too timid to try something new. Just because you loved a certain wedding dress in a photo doesn't mean that it is the perfect one for you. Every gown will look slightly different on every woman, so be brave enough to try on a variety of styles until you find the silhouette that you love on your own body. Once that's narrowed down, you will most likely find your dream dress within that style.



DON'T bring too many people. 
There will be lots of friends and family members that are nearly as excited as you about the wedding dress shopping. You do not need to feel obligated to say yes to everyone that wants to tag along. Even if you have a large bridal party, they don't all have to be there for this moment.

Too many opinions can make the decision extremely difficult. Try to keep the number of helpers to a minimum, and only bring the people that know your personal style and have your best interests at heart. Happy, postive attitudes are what you need on a day like this.

DON'T go hungry.
Occasionally a bride will get lucky and find her dream wedding dress after only trying on a few, but this is rare. More than likely you are in for a long day, so going on an empty stomach is not a good idea. Having a light meal before you shop will give you the energy needed, and keeping a snack handy in your purse is a great idea in case you start feeling a little drained halfway through the appointment.   

DON'T see this task as a chore.
Yes, there is some preparation required to make sure that your wedding dress shopping trip is a rewarding one, but the research can be fun, you'll be shopping with the people that are nearest and dearest to you, and... you're getting married to the man you love! This should be an exciting and enjoyable experience. Above all else, remember to have fun with it and savor every moment.   



The perfect wedding dress is out there waiting for you, it's just a matter of time before you find each other. An excellent place to start is with the exquisite collections of Venus Bridal. We offer a wide variety of goreous bridal gowns for every type of bride. Once you get an idea of which ones are your favorites, you can find a local retailer near you right on our website. Best wishes for your wedding, and happy shopping!

Thoughtful Ways To Thank Everyone In Your Wedding

It's Thanksgiving week, which has us thinking about all of the things that we are thankful for. When you are planning a wedding, there are a lot of people that pitch in to make it into the celebration you have always dreamed about. Venus Bridal has come up with a few creative ideas for you to show all of those people how very thankful you are to them. 



Wedding Party
More than likely, this is the core group that is always there for you through the entire process. Your wedding party is made up of your closest family and friends, and they want to see you happy on your big day. For all of the time, errand-running, fittings, late-night phone calls, and more that they have given to you, here are a few great ideas for telling them "Thank you!"

  • Throw a party before the wedding so that the bridesmaids and groomsmen can get to know each other. It's like a pre-thank you before everything gets started. 
  • Throw a party after the big day for the entire wedding party. Use it to honor them for all the hard work they put into your celebration. 
  • Treat them by picking up the tab for a wedding-related item. This will depend on your budget, and can be anything from jewelry to wear at the wedding, to their hotel stay, to their tuxedo rental or dress. 
  • While you've got access to a professional photographer, and everyone is looking their beautful best, arrange for the members of your wedding party to have a few shots taken of their own family. Don't forget those special shots of you with them too. 
  • Make their gift something both useful and memorable. It can be anything that you know they will use regularly after the wedding day. Also, have it personalizd in a way that they will think back to your ceremony and reception every time that they use it. These gifts don't have to be the same for each person. Customize them to each one's special likes.  

Parents
These are the people that not only have been there for you during the wedding planning, but also your entire life. They helped to make you into the person you are today, the person your soon-to-be-spouse fell in love with. The following items are a great way to thank them.

  • Rather than a short thank you note, jot down all the happy memories that you have with your parents in a notebook. The final entry can be all about how important they were on your wedding day, and the ways you and your spouse plan to cherish them in the future. 
  • Take the time to not only get full family photos, but also special shots of you alone with each parent. You can find a specially engraved frame to present the picture to them in.
  • If you know there will be a few tears shed on your wedding day, a handkerchief with an embroidered saying or thank you is a lovely gift to give both moms and dads.
  • Say thank you publicly by writing a special dedication to them in your wedding program. It will be even better if it's a surprise when they sit down and read it along with everyone else. (This may be the reason they will need that handkerchief!) 

Vendors
Professionals don't necessarily expect a thank you. After all, you are paying them for their services. When you have a wedding vendor that goes above and beyond what is expected of them, you may want to give them a little something extra. Tips are always appreciated, but the following things are touching gestures. 

  • Pleasant reviews are always the very best thank you that a vendor can receive. It helps to boost their business by letting other brides know what a great job they are capable of. (It's especially nice when you share a wedding photo with the review!)
  • Include a picture of you with them or the work they provided in a hand written thank you note. 
  • Surprise them with a gift basket at their office after the successful wedding. 

Your Spouse
Wedding planning can be a long and stressful process. Sometimes it can take a toll on the relationship, even though you are planning for the event that will join your lives together. Once everything is over, make a special effort to do something extra nice, just for the two of you.

  • Have a secret photo taken especially for them. If you are extremely sneaky, hold up a sign with a speical note for them behind their back during a wedding photo of the two of you embracing. Budior photos are also an exciting suprise for your groom. 
  • If you won't be taking a honeymoon right away, arrange for a short overnight trip someplace quiet and romantic. Even if it's in your hometown, it's always nice to get out of the house and away from day-to-day tasks and worries. 
  • Just like we mentioned for your parents, gift your spouse with a notebook full of all the happy memories that you have made together. Include photographs too.
  • Give them a calendar marked with a date night every week (or at least every month) for your first year of marriage. If you've had enough time to plan ahead, also include a packet describing the date or holding items for that date, like concert tickets or restaurant reservations.
  • Make a vow to say both "Thank you" and "I love you" every single day of your marriage, in both words and gestures.

Tips To Help You Find The Perfect Wedding Rings

Your beautiful wedding dress is not the only important fashion decision that you have to make for your wedding day. While you will only be wearing your elegant bridal gown for one day, the wedding rings that you and your groom choose will be worn every day for the rest of your happily ever after. Venus Bridal has a few tips to share with you so that you find exactly what you want. 



Make It A Joint Decision
Even if your gentleman is letting you make the majority of the wedding planning decisions, choosing wedding rings is a wonderful task for you to work together on. It always looks lovely when a couple wears wedding bands that complement each other. Begin your search at the jeweler where the engagment ring was purchased, because many jewelers offer special pricing for repeat customers. 

Set A Price Range
Just like with the wedding, over-spending now can lead to bad feelings later on. Paying more than you can comfortably afford will result in debt long after the wedding. The suggested price range to spend on an engagement ring is about 2-month's salary, and about 1-month's salary for the bands. 

If you have planned ahead and saved, this may be no problem. On the other hand, if that's a bit too rich for your blood right now, opt for a simpler set of rings that can be upgraded in the future for a special anniversary. 

Shop Early Enough To Order
Many wedding rings will need to be specially ordered, so you will definitely want to make your final decision with plenty of time for them to arrive. Strive to have them ordered around 6 months before the wedding date. Don't forget that you will also need a little extra time if you would like to have something engraved on the inside too. 

Match Your Lifestyle
When you are picking out an item that will be worn at all times, comfort is a very important factor. If you lead a very active lifestyle, you may want to find a band that is more streamlined and less bulky. Once you find a few styles that you like the look of, really get a feel for them by trying each one on.  

Choose A Ring Material
Your wedding ring will rest on your hand right next to that gorgeous engagement ring, so you will want to make sure that they look good together. Look for a metal that matches or works well with the one your engagement ring is made from. Also know that different metals wear differently over time. Here are some general things to know to aid in your decision:
  • Gold: Available in white, yellow, or rose. Buffing this metal will keep it shiny and smooth.
  • Sterling Silver: To make it more durable, this is actually pure silver mixed with copper. Even though the mixture makes it stronger, it can still get scratched easily if you aren't careful. This choice is a very affordable one.
  • Platinum: This metal is extremely durable, but over the years it will show wear and scratches. A jeweler can professionally polish away most blemishes.
  • Silver & Gold: The best way to make sure your wedding ring matches a variety of other pieces of jewelry is to choose one that features both of these metals. There are many beatiful options available. 


There are lots of decisions that go into the planning of a wedding, but the more you know going into it, the easier they all are to take on. We hope that the tips above help to make this task simpler and fun for you both as a couple. Once you fall in love with a ring, we can't wait to see what it looks like worn along with your fabulous Venus Bridal wedding dress!

How To Choose The Most Magnificent Colors For Your Wedding

Color plays a very big part in the look and feel of your wedding. Lots of color displayed everywhere can really make your beautiful white wedding dress stand out. A more neutral palette with touches of color here and there can also be gorgeous with a wonderful flow. 

Your color choice will be evident in many different aspects of the wedding: bridesmaid dresses, stationary, florals, table decorations, favors, groomsmen accessories, and possibly even the wedding cake. Some brides even like to pull the wedding color into their own fashion with the accessories like a sash or jewelry. There is an infinite number of choices to pick from, so today Venus Bridal has a few tips to help you narrow them down.


Stick with what you love
If you have had a favorite color your entire life, so much so that your friends immediately think of you when that color is mentioned, then that one is the obvious choice. A wedding celebrates love, and surrounding yourself with things that you love only makes sense. Then your only decision will be which shades to use, and if you will add in a few complementary colors.

For those of you that don't think you have a favorite color, take inspiration from the things you have around you regularly. Open your closet and take notice of what colors pop up the most, or look around your home and see if one particular color keeps catching your eye. If you love the beach, go for ocean blues and sandy browns, or if you prefer the country, lean towards earthy tones like that of the trees and flowers found there.  

Convey a feeling
The use of color is an excellent way to set the mood for your special day. Light, airy pastels seem romantic and sweet, while bolder, bright shades give off a livelier vibe. Red can make you think passion, yellow - warmth and happiness, and blues are often serene. Don't feel like you have to stick with one feeling throughout the day. Use romantic shades of a color during the ceremony, then take that same color and jazz it up with darker shades to add excitement to the reception.




Take cues from the venue
Some wedding venues are like big, blank slates before you begin decorating, but there are quite a few that already have a main color scheme in place. If it's a color that you like the look of, that will work perfectly. If it's a color you can't stand, you may want to consider looking for a different venue. Initially, you will want your decorations to blend well with the decor that is already set in the room. For weddings taking place outdoors, let the nature around you inspire the colors that you choose.

Borrow from the season
Even if your wedding will not be an outdoor one, nature can still be a wonderful inspiration for the colors that you choose. Warm colors in the fall, bright whites and metallic shades in the winter, delicate pastels in spring, and bright, sunny hues in the summer. Holidays are wonderful places to turn to influence your decision too. Reds and greens around Christmas, or even deep purples and blues. New Year's Eve weddings may be done in a formal way with blacks, silvers, and golds. Valentine's Day could have romantic pinks or bold, sexy reds.    

At the end of the day, you really don't need to overthink it. Keep your eyes open for colors that draw your attention when you are out and about during the day. Once you take notice of that, your color scheme will begin to emerge. This wedding is for both the bride and the groom, so work together to find the colors that you both want to incorporate into this special day. 

Once the decision is made, you'll be ready when the bridesmaid dress shopping begins. Venus Bridal has a large selection of colors, fabrics, and styles to choose from.
