Friday Favorites: Pretty in Pink

By: Taylor Clark

Whew, y’all, we made it to the weekend (finally). I’m not sure what it is about three day weekends, but the proceeding weekdays seem to drag on forever! We had an exciting week at Meant To Be, and spent the majority of yesterday unpacking loads of new arrivals, some of which will be featured in next week’s Friday Favorites. As for this week’s topic, I’m addressing a major concern of some of our brides: blush gowns. Though not a new commodity, blush gowns still seem to intimidate some brides-to-be because they fear that they will photograph too pink. Though these gowns definitely don’t photograph white, as a traditional ivory gown would, they also do not photograph bright pink; their blush hue is subtle and sweet. We hope that these professional photos, taken by the lovely Laura Bodnar, help ease your anxiety about purchasing a blush gown! 



This sweet gown captured our hearts the moment we saw its tulle skirt and illusion cap sleeve bodice. Although pink may be intimidating to some, the ivory tulle overlay and floral lace appliques on this gown soften the otherwise striking color. Affectionately called “the pink dress” over here at MTB, we are absolutely smitten with every delicate detail of this dreamy gown and cannot wait for a bride to walk down the aisle in it!



If you’re hoping to seriously wow on your wedding day, look no further. This Mori Lee ballgown features a soft blush color, a fun ruffle skirt, and a lace and beaded bodice that dazzles. All eyes will be on you in this organza and lace masterpiece. Your fantastically flirty personality will surely shine through in this bold bridal look! 



Friday Favorites has never seen such a fierce gown as this Allure mermaid. The completely beaded bodice is offset by the almost petal-like organza ruffles of the skirt. The deep V-neck is super sassy and the illusion back is sophisticated glamour. If your wedding day is going to be an over-the-top affair, consider setting the tone with this feisty blush number!

Though blush isn’t the obvious choice for most brides, we do hope that this post has at least broadened your willingness to try on a blush gown in your pursuit of the dress. Although you may have always assumed you’d walk down the aisle in an ivory gown, you may find that a blush dress is more flattering for your skin tone. This is another reason why Ashton and I always recommend finding your dress first, before choosing bridesmaid dresses or color schemes, just in case a blush gown would conflict with either of these aspects of your wedding. It’s vital that you feel gorgeous and confident on your wedding day. If that means that you choose a somewhat untraditional blush gown, then strut your pretty in pink self right down the aisle, lovely lady! We’ll see all of you wonderful people here next week to unveil some of our favorite new arrivals. Until then, have a relaxing and safe weekend!
