Holly B.’s Amazing Ballgown Wedding Dress

posted in: Dresses, Strut Brides | 0

Holly was a sweet and sassy bride who came shopping at Strut and wanted a wedding dress that would match her personality–something sparkly and a bit wow. She and Donald had a black, red and white themed wedding at Dolce Spa in Peoria on November 2, 2013–the upstairs of the spa is a stunning event space!

She wore a dropped waist tulle ballgown from Allure Bridals. The bodice has a stunning beaded floral pattern, while the skirt features a swoop across the fun. It was jsut the fun element she wanted in her wedding dress!

Holly wrote us,
I’m so excited to share these pictures from my wedding.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVED my dress!  Being overweight, I was worried that I would look like a fat bride.  But on that day, and because I had a dress that looked and fit AMAZING, I felt so beautiful.  Thank you for helping me find my dress, and every chance I get I will recommend your wonderful salon.

P.S. My bridesmaids looked smokin hot in their sassy red satin dresses with black lace appliques as well.

Her photographer, Jill Lauren, posted lots of images on her blog. You can check out detail shots of their candy buffet, popcorn with add-your-own-toppings, feather centerpieces and more!

Holly’s bridesmaids also got their dresses at Strut. The five ladies wore two complementary designs in the same fabric. There was a fitted cocktail dress style in red with black lace accents, and a fuller aline bridesmaid dress with one strap.
