One of the more beautiful things about the South right now is that you don’t have to be born here to fit right in with our culture. (In fact, I’m actually a Southerner by choice, not birth!) Southern brides can pick and choose from the best the world has to offer while planning their weddings, combining details from here and there to find the mix that best represents them AND the grace and warmth of our part of the country.

One of my favorite examples? Bridal gown designers! Fashion houses around the world are keying into details that gals like us are drawn to — heirloom lace, fabulous bows, sweet rows of buttons — meaning sometimes the most Southern look can be sourced from halfway around the globe.

Rosa Clará is one such designer I think all Southern brides should know about. I’m always drawn to their sleek shapes, classic styling, and yes, perfectly-placed bows, and I think y’all will be, too!

Today’s bride, Skye, is a perfect example! Though her wedding took place in California, her Rosa Clará gown’s sweet neckline, dainty beading, and breezy material would have worked equally well in the South.

You can view all of Rosa Clará’s lovely gowns on their site, and by visiting a salon near you. Don’t miss the Nassau, Namibia, Neida, Neira, Niher, Neiva, or Nazar dresses from their Spring 2017 collection as you browse! Seriously though, too many favorites :)

I’d love to hear: what was Southern about your wedding gown? I think my gown’s tulle skirt was very feminine, which I think is an attribute many Southern gals claim (though of course each in her own way!).

This post is brought to you by Rosa Clará. Thanks for your support of the brands that make Southern Weddings possible!

    My gown was from Rosa Clara. I loved the luminous silk and classic elegance. They also customized the gown for me, putting a giant bow on the back!

Spring has sprung in the Southern Weddings Shop! We have a bouquet of new products serving up our signature practical and pretty for y’all, and I’m excited to introduce them to you today. And don’t forget – in honor of our birthday, there’s free shipping all week with code HAPPYBIRTHDAY – hooray!!

Filed under the “pretty” banner is our Southern postcard set! At just $10 for a set of 10, you can afford to send one to each of your bridesmaids every month, if you want to!

As we were narrowing down the designs, we kept asking ourselves which ones we’d really send to our favorite ladies – and if we couldn’t picture ourselves sending one, even if it was cute, we nixed it. My favorite is obviously the fabulous pineapple :)

Next up is a short and sweet addition to our e-book library, How to Give a Wedding Toast. Instead of searching the internet for hours, just purchase this handy guide and pass it along to your dad, best man, or maid of honor! This product was partially inspired by the terror I felt when faced with the task of toasting my older sister; if I can help even one other person do a better job than I did, I’ll be satisfied! :)

Finally, I know we’re not supposed to play favorites, but I’m just going to go ahead and say it: I LOVE our new Mother of the Bride Guide!! It’s the same way I feel about our wedding planner: SO proud to have created something SO valuable, especially for a population that isn’t often spoken to!

We have a deep love for our mamas around here, and we’re so thrilled to finally have a product just for you. It’s practical, it’s inspiring, and it’s disarmingly sweet (I cried several times just editing it!). Mamas, buy it for yourself, and brides, buy it for your mamas as a little gift! I guarantee it will be money well spent. You can pick yours up here.
