Introducing Coco....

Ladies, meet Coco.....

This fine Amsale dress just became the newest member of The Bride Room family...and we couldn't be more thrilled! Fresh but classic ..... youthful but sophisticated ...... Coco is just the right blend of sweet (alencon lace & sweet straps!) and sassy (taffeta skirt and pockets!).

She's here, she's amazing, and she could be yours!

Happy ogling! :) :)

This Day in History


On July 29, 1981, Lady Diana Spencer married Prince Charles of Wales in The Wedding Watched Around the World....

Knowing what we know now, we acknowledge that there is a certain sadness veiwing these photos on their anniversary...

But sentiment aside, in this business, we revere the sheer magnitude of this well-orchestrated event.....doing what we do, we have to simply say...what a dress! What a wedding!

We get soooo many questions about what "other brides" do...and "is it okay if I....???" and "what does tradition call for???"

It's AWESOME to honor tradition and tie in elements of family weddings and time-tested rituals....but really and truly, it's YOUR wedding! Make it your own! Heck, Diana took 4 minutes to get down the aisle and she was toting a 25-foot train!

To brides everywhere in pursuit of a fairy tale wedding and happily ever after, here's to you!!

Real Wedding - Sweet Dianne!

Oh you know how we love our real weddings!

Sweet Dianne was married just this past Saturday...and we already have a peek at her gorgeous day!

The black & white photo was from Dianne's bridal portrait session at Cheekwood Botanical was just too gorgeous not to include! She wore an exquisite Augusta Jones gown with a custom sweetheart neckline and matching veil- how gorgeous is she!!!

And it's always nice to see a bride and groom really enjoying their day! Dianne's bridesmaids were in Watters bridesmaids dresses in Tiffany - what a beautiful summer wedding photo that makes! :)

Hats off to you two for having fun and making some great memories!!! We wish you lots of love in the years to come!

Quote of the Day

"There is nothing nobler or more admirable than
when two people who see eye to eye
keep house as man and wife, confounding
their enemies and delighting their friends." ( Homer )

Mad Murphy Love!

Behind these umbrellas are two of the *sweetest* girls you have ever met!

This fantastic photo ( is of the wedding of Brynn, who was married in Texas last September.

Her sister, Brooke, got engaged here in Nashville last night. Brynn and the girls' mom knew of the imminent proposal and flew in town to surprise Brooke!!! Is that not the greatest gesture of celebration!

You guessed it - Brooke came in today and found her fantastic Monique Lhuillier gown - super sweet, totally elegant, and just a tad rock 'n roll....perfect (PERFECT!) for Brooke!

Ladies, you made our day. Your love for each other and joyful approach to weddings was the highlight of our week! We are so honored and blessed to be a part of your day! Keep in touch as you plan!!! You are a thrill and a gift to work with!!!

On the links...

Ever notice how one cute little website or blog can lead to another...and another.....and yet many more?

In the spirit of sharing our guilty (but-it's-necessary-for-our-work-to-stay-relevant) pleasure, today we bring you some of our favorite recent posts from blogs we frequent....
This post is so fun because we get to celebrate: 1) dear friend and talent Michael Howard in his 2nd publication this year; and 2) Jenny, one of our sweet brides - check her out below in a superb gown by Monique Lhuillier.
Right now they're hosting a great color palette contest - it is truly a visual feast!!! Extra kudos to SMP for updating their blog so frequently, which keeps us coming back!
So fun! Love this post on fabulous wedding hair....

Happy gazing!
