Taylor + John

(December 19, 2020 in Cabo, Mexico)

In this blog post, we dive into a bride's vision for her wedding and how she made it an unforgettable experience for everyone who attended. The bride's goal was to make her husband stand out and have a boho yet timeless theme. She achieved this by having her bridesmaids wear white and the groomsmen in burnt orange. To minimize stress, the bride chose to have an all-inclusive resort where she stayed and had the ceremony. With the help of a free wedding planner from Destify Weddings, she was able to book everyone's room and organize the shuttle, creating a stress-free and inexpensive experience. The day-of the wedding was filled with raw emotions, and the bride recommends this unique experience for future brides. Her #1 tip? Consider doing a destination wedding to have an unforgettable and stress-free wedding experience.

Taylor was absolutely stunning on her wedding day in our Ava gown by Willowby. This gown is a sheath fit with absolutely gorgeous crochet sheet lace in a boho-inspired pattern. The bodice features a plunging v-neckline and thin braided straps that go into a low back. This dress also has a braided belt detail to help accentuate the natural waist. The nude liner of this gown adds to the boho look and makes the ivory lace really pop.

By our real bride, Taylor:

What was the vision for your wedding?

I wanted to make this an experience for everyone who attended. My vision was to make my husband stand out vs using the men to just compliment us women. I had all of my girls in white, and the men in burnt orange. The theme was boho yet timeless! I chose an all-inclusive resort where we stayed & had the ceremony! I didnt want to do any planning or anything! I literally just showed up! I used a wedding planner through Destify Weddings (she was free) and she created my wedding website, sent out invites, and booked everyones room along with organizing the shuttle. She was a lifesaver. 

I wanted my wedding to be inexpensive, a vacation, and ZERO stress.

How did it go the day-of? 

One thing that I loved is that I didnt see John until I was walking down the aisle. This is something that is very rare because of the first look photos but it was perfect! Raw emotion and just really lived in that moment.

What is your #1 tip to future brides? 

My best tip is to do a destination wedding! Its an experience, its so fun, stress-free, and beautiful! 

Full transparency, from start to finish including my dress, mens attire, flowers, the all-inclusive resort... I mean EVERYTHING it was less than $9,000. THATS IT. Thats my biggest tip. Go away, invite your FAVORITE people and vacation for 10 days & have your wedding on one of those days.
