Wedding dresses come in all shapes and sizes and can be customized to fit the bride’s individual tastes.

It’s nice to have options but so many options can make it hard to choose. Veil or no veil? Short or long dress? What color? Who picks the dress?

Tradition states that the bride chooses the dress but in today’s world traditions are often being broken in favor of personalized choices. In fact, when Katie Couric got married it was her fiancé that offered lots of input on the dress.

He helped her narrow the choices down to an ivory beaded and embroidered Chantilly lace gown. The Celebration Hall on 30A in Santa Rosa Beach, FLOther examples of traditions going by to the wayside are brides walking down the aisle with the groom instead of the traditional act of being escorted and given away. We may see this trend increase in popularity especially in second marriages.

Also it has been traditionally stated that it is the bride and groom are not to stay together before the wedding. However in a tighter economy and a more relaxed society, cohabitation is a much more appealing so this tradition is commonly overlooked. Brides choosing another color over white is also becoming a popular choice as well as other options in bridal footwear besides fancy high heels.

Different colors are being chosen to complement the wedding colors and brides are even wearing flip-flops or other low-key options, favoring function over form.

5 Things You Should NEVER Say to Your Bridesmaids

Celebration Hall understands that the Bride is and always will be the center of attention. It is your day and one that will go down in the family album for years to come.

However, that doesn’t give you a free pass to be downright evil to your bridal party. Your bridesmaids aren’t your servants, simply there to encourage and support you on your big day. Their budgets, families and personal lives should be just as much respected as your own.

Our advice in pleasing your bridal party and things you should never speak to them. Consider this advice when you are planning and scheduling with your bridesmaids. We only want the bride to be happy and the bridal party. This makes for one magnificent wedding day!

“This is the dress I’ve picked out for you and that’s FINAL”

This doesn’t always work. You have to be mindful of the bridesmaid body shape, comfort and budget. We understand you will have a particular dress in mind but if you want to have a wedding that runs smoothly, you’ll agree on a dress vs. forcing someone to not feel confident. Allow them to try on a few dresses until one dress works perfectly for everyone.

“You must wear these accessories I’ve chosen, and you MUST pay for them”

In reality, your bridesmaids are responsible for paying for their dress once they agree to be a part of the bridal party. If you want to add on and add fancy accessories then that becomes your responsibly. Keep this in mind so no one feels threatened or bankrupt.

“My pre-wedding events are MANDATORY, you MUST show up”

We understand that planning a wedding is stressful, but keep in mind that your bridal party also has a family, life and other responsibilities. If they can’t show up for one thing don’t freak out, instead be grateful if they can. Try to relax as much as you can, remember you’re about to be a gorgeous bride.

“You will help me with all the pre-wedding details or ELSE”

Don’t force anything on your bridesmaids, we understand they took on the responsibility of being a part of the bridal party and they know that too. Don’t take advantage of them, instead ask politely and that will get you more help, we assure that.


If you feel that someone in your bridal party is either being distant, not contributing or just ignoring you attempt to talk to them calmly before you jump to conclusions. There could be something going on you’re unaware of. Just keep in mind that your bridal party are humans too.

Unless they openly release themselves from the bridal party, don’t fire anyone, they want to be there just as much as you want them.

We have a team of professional staff ready to give you all the knowledge, advice and planning expertise we hold for planning a perfect wedding day for you.

We live and breathe weddings and all special occasions. We look forward to hearing from you.
