An Alfred Angelo Wedding

I’ve always loved the Alfred Angelo line for its beautiful styles and affordable prices. Whether romantic, classic, trendy or sassy, I truly believe this line has something that would make just about any bride happy.

As you know, Alfred Angelo came to the rescue at the last minute when I was on the fence about my original dress, and I quickly fell head over heels for a romantic mermaid silhouette with cascading tiers of lace, a gorgeous semi-cathedral train, and an elegant grape sash beneath the bust.

And earlier, while on the hunt for bridesmaid dresses that would flatter a variety of body types, my sister and I found the perfect formal and flattering grape gown, which featured white embroidery and crystal detailing on its sash.


Of course, I was excited about these picks before the big day, but looking back at our photos afterward, I’m even more in love. In the end, I’m so glad I ordered my dream dress before it was too late, and that the girls also loved their dresses, which paired so perfectly with mine. I truly can’t imagine our wearing anything else.



Will you and your bridesmaids wear dresses made by the same designer, or closely matched in style? Whether you’re now looking back on your day or are still waiting for it to arrive, have you ever had any second thoughts about your dress choices?

  1. Your bridal party looks amazing, and of course you do, too! My dress, as you know, has been a pain in the you-know-where, so I often have second thoughts about the gown I chose, even though it has little to do with the gown itself. It seems like everything is working out now. I go for my second fitting at the end of September. Unfortunately I've been going alone during work hours, so there's no one to take photos of the process!

  3. I love the color of your BM dresses and they go great with your theme.

    My dress and my BM dresses were not the same designer but they both had sweetheart necklines. I loved them both!

  5. Love the BM dresses and colors. You looked amazing all together.

    I am not sure yet what I am going to do with the bridesmaid's dresses. I am thinking about just picking a neutral color and let them pick the style.

  6. So pretty.

    The first dress I tried on that I liked was an Alfred Angelo dress. My bridesmaids and I wore pretty much a plethora or designers. BCBG, JCrew, and Davids Bridal.

  8. I only had one bridesmaid so that was not a problem but if I did have more than one I would probably have gone with Alfred Angelo as I really liked their choice of colors and styles!

  12. Everyone looks great in the dresses. My gown was a Maggie Sottero and the BM's wore Jasmine B2 dresses. I adored the final selection we made for the BM's and was so glad they talked me out of my original pick.

    My bridesmaids wore Dessy dresses then my gown was a Sassi Holford, who is a British designer.

  14. Very cute! Love all of your dresses and how coordinated they are! I'm also having my girls dress in Alfred Angelo bridesmaids dresses, as well as the Jr. Bridesmaids. Our moms may order their dresses through them to match the same color blue, but that is up to them. I love the variety of sizes and colors they offer.
