Ronda Rousey’s Wedding Dress was a Knock Out!

We apologize for the cheesy headline, but we are excited for fierce UFC fighter Ronda Rousey who just married long term boyfriend and fellow UFC fighter, Travis Browne. Rousey looked flawless in a Galia Lahav wedding dress and proved that strong really is sexy. She is always a master of balancing brawn and femininity, so it is no surprise to us that she seamlessly intertwined her high-fashion wedding dress into a theme that she described as a “backyard Mexican corona party.”

Now, only Ronda can claim the title of the first American woman to win an Olympic medal in Judo, but you can get her Gala Lahav inspired glam right here at Lotus Bridal for a fraction of the cost!

Luxe For Less:

As you can see by the two gowns we selected, both dresses mimic Rousey’s plunging neckline and feature similar silhouettes. Both of these beaded beauties are available at Lotus Bridal. Appointments fill up quickly, so please call to inquire about availability.

Bridesmaid Trends

The tradition of bridal parties date way back to biblical times. However, the purpose and style of bridesmaids’ has changed tremendously. We’ve broken down the new top 3 bridesmaid dress trends that our brides have been asking for.

  • Two Piece Separates

For the modern bride who is looking for a fresh take on traditional bridesmaid dresses. Separates allow you customize your girls looks as you please.

  • Ombre Color Scheme

It used to be standard that all girls in a bridal party wore the same color. Now, brides are choosing a color palette and having girls stay within that. This adds some drama to your wedding picture!

  • Pick your own style

You want your girls to feel confident standing aside you at the alter. And often times the girls in your bridal party don’t have the same body types. Brides have been letting their girls choose the dress they feel is most flattering for their unique shapes.

#Figure It Out: The Pros & Cons of Different Dress Styles on Different Body Shapes

All brides-to-be come to realize that wedding dress shopping has its own lingo. All of the different terms and names of designers can be overwhelming. But after you read this article and take a trip to Lotus Bridal, you will be a pro and have an understanding of what dress shape matches the vibe of your wedding & makes you look and feel your absolute best!

A-Line Wedding Dress

What is it?

An A-Line dress features a fitted bodice that flares from the waist, gradually getting wider as it goes towards the floor, mimicking a capital letter “A”.

Should I Say Yes?

This dress looks good on any body type. It emphasizes a teeny-tiny waist line while maintaining a classic, bridal feel.

Should I Say No?

If you are looking for a dress that shows off your booty, stay away from A-Line.

Trumpet & Mermaid Gowns

What are they?

Both Trumpet & Mermaid gowns are known for their body-hugging shapes. Trumpets flare out starting in the middle of the thigh. Mermaid dresses flare out starting at the knee, allowing for a more dramatic flare or “poof” at the bottom.

Should I Say Yes?

If you love your curves and want to show off that sexy-bod then this is the style for you! This dress elongates brides while showing off an hour glass figure.

Should I Say No?

If your main concern for your wedding day is mobility & ease of walking, then consider staying away from mermaid & trumpet dresses. Girls who do not want to bring attention to their hips often do not like the fit of these dresses.

Ballgown

What is it?

The Ballgown is best known for being the “princess dress” due to it’s full skirt and fitted bodice.

Should I Say Yes?

Lotus Bridal rejects the idea that a girl is too big or too small to wear a ballgown. If you want to feel like a princess on your big day, then the girls at Lotus Bridal will help you match it with the perfect tiara!

Should I Say No?

One thing to consider is that ballgown dresses can get heavy. Another factor to consider is your venue. If the space is on the smaller side, you might want to stay away from such a voluminous gown.
