It’s hard to top the sweet and romantic vision of a cowboy and cowgirl making their happily ever after come true!  Country western weddings are so fun with their iconic themes of real Americana right down to the horseshoes, boots and ten-gallon hats!  We pulled together a few sentimental favorites that have found their way to some
very special celebrations!  

 

So many gals love replacing those bridal heels with their country cousins!

Your Dream, Your Design – Done!

One of the things we love the most about being more than just a store but the manufacturer too, is that we can make dreams come true!  Like all of our custom items, our sash collection was created with a gorgeous array of color and style options so that each product is a unique reflection of the exclusive look a bride and her crew desires!

advantagebridal_2353_109141808

Sashes continue to be a hot, must-have accessory! Unfortunately, so many retailers can only offer finished products made in factories where, frankly, they are assembled with no thought of the wishes of the brides who might wear them.

Wrap Yourself in Luxury!

Friday, February 20th, 2015

For a great many of us in the U.S. today, it’s hard to wrap our thoughts around anything but staying warm and heeding the sage advice to
 layer, layer layer!  

Nonetheless, the mind is a powerful thing, so allow those same thoughts to transport you to a luxurious spa day or a steamy, hot sauna in which every bit
 of tension has left your body.  

All you feel is balmy warmth as though you were basking in the tropical sun!  Imagine that your skin is aglow with invigorated circulation from a massage that has soothed every trace
of stress and strain from your body!
Ahhhhhh, right?

So, don’t let Mother Nature take away your creature comforts even if, for the moment, they’re just a daydream and be sure to check our some of our fabulous spa, bath and sauna looks for those times when you definitely won’t need much on at all!  

There is something for everyone here at
Advantage Bridal

Great Gifts for Great Guys!

Friday, October 17th, 2014

Gift-giving is woven into weddings as a tradition of  appreciating and honoring the bonds of love, family and friendship.  While there is nothing that dictates considerations such to whom a gift should be given or how much to spend, there is one very important guideline to follow.  

Choose a gift that reflects you have thought carefully of the recipient and what they would like versus what you would like for them to have.   Sometimes the two are the same but it is valuable to know when they are not.

Groomsmen are especially important to recognize as, after all, they are likely to be brothers, best buds, life-long friends or close relatives.  While we very often see the “one size fits all” approach in which the same item is selected for everyone, it can be quite fun and even more touching to select individualized gifts reflecting the unique interests or style of the recipient.   Of course, that will require some searching to find a host of different items. 

 Allow us to share a collection personalized treasures that would be appropriate for those groomsmen who aren’t all cut from the same cloth!  Perfect for a favorite soldier, the sharp dresser, guys with a “man-cave”, a die-hard sports fanatic,  beer, wine or cigar aficionados or even the outdoorsy type!    For more options, feel free to browse our entire gift collection here

Discover the Trend Behind One of the Most Romantic Wedding Venues!

Friday, September 26th, 2014

For decades now, America’s appreciation for wine has been steadily on the rise.  In 2013, the United States became the greatest consumer of wine in the world!   While it used to be that the ultimate in U.S. vineyards could be found primarily in California and the Pacific Northwest, today, vineyards and wineries can be found in abundance in every state of the union!

The thematic concepts are endless.  Wine tastings and pairings are obviously a must, along with perhaps a fruit and cheese or champagne and chocolate course.  Lovely vine scrolled accents and grape motifs can be woven throughout including invitations, reception accessories, tablescapes and favors.
