Buy The New 2017 Morilee Fall Bridal Collection From Our Online Store

We recently shared a sneak peek with you at the brand new Morilee 2017 Fall Bridal Collection, and this week we have made it available to every bride, everywhere, through our online wedding dress store. You don't have to travel to Miami to get access to the most fashionable bridal gowns. Brides of America can send one to you! 




Authorized Morilee Retailer  
Our bridal boutique in Miami is an authorized retailer for Morilee. When you order a wedding dress from us, whether it is in the store or from the comfort of your home through our online store, you know that the bridal gown you receive is an authentic Morilee production. We have access to every dress collection created by Morilee. You will find us listed on the company's website, so you know that we are a trusted vendor of their quality wedding fashions.  

Order From Anywhere in the U.S.A. 
Our online bridal gown store allows every woman, no matter where she lives, the ability to purchase one of these exquisite dresses. There is a section dedicated specifically to the gowns that are available to order online, which features photos, descriptions, pricing information, and the approximate delivery time. 


Since one of our knowledgable consultants will not be on hand to take your measurements when you order online, you will find a helpful size chart at the bottom of the page along with some simple instructions to help you find the most accurate measurements. Once you place your order by filling out the secure online order form, one of our bridal consultants will call or email you to confirm all of the details within 48 hours before the final order is placed.

FREE Shipping
Free ground shipping is offered on any bridal gown orders being delivered in the continental USA. This does not include Puerto Rico, Alaska, Hawaii, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Shipping times vary due to many different factors: availability, season, weight, destination, etc... Expedited shipping is available upon request, but additional shipping charges may apply. 



Quality Control & Customer Service 
Before your dream wedding dress shows up on your doorstep, it will first be delivered directly to our Miami wedding dress store. We take great pride in our merchandise and the very special customer service that we always strive to provide our customers with. We will put your gown through a quality control inspection to insure that everything is exactly as it should be. Once we know that it is perfect, that gorgeous wedding dress will be on it's way to you. 

Get the Newest Bridal Gowns
Our online bridal gown store has a large selection of amazing wedding dresses for you to choose from in every possible style. Just this week, we are very proud to announce that Morilee's newest line, the 2017 bridal collection, is available to order from us!

Feminine silhouettes, intricate beading and sequins, and luxe fabrics have made their way onto these new designs, and they are simply breathtaking! 


If you are not close enough to come to us in South Florida, you are welcome to shop in our online wedding dress store and we'll send the gown to you instead! On the other hand, if you have a chance to visit Brides of America in Miami, we would be thrilled to set up an appointment for you so that you can try on these fabulous fashions before making a decision. Our goal is to make sure you have access to the gown of your dreams, no matter where in the country you live.

From the Garden to Your Wedding Fashions - Fabulous Floral Gowns

This spring you won't just be seeing beautiful flowers popping up in nature. At our bridal boutique in Miami, it's "Flowers, Flowers, Flowers" everywhere! Every type of dress featuring a floral print, from bridesmaid gowns to quinceanera dresses, is selling like crazy for weddings. 


It's not just prints of flowers that brides are falling in love with. You will also find many floral embellishments like embroidery and other 3-D elements. We recently shared a blog about a beautiful Brides of America bride, Karen, and the Magical Disney Wedding in which she wore a stunning Morilee bridal gown covered in amazing floral appliques.

Brides of America owner, David Abadi, recalls a time when this wasn't such a popular trend. "I remember in the 80's when we used to have floral print dresses in the store and no one wanted them. Today's brides are very fashion forward and love to be different!


A gown with a floral motif somehow has a classic feel to it while still pulling off a trendy, contemporary vibe. It exudes both romantic elegance and a sense of fun. Why just carry a bouquet of flowers down the aisle when you can wear them too? "When I was 10 years old, in the 70's," stated David, "I remember my cousin's wedding. They wore this type of floral fabrics and I immediately fell in love with the look because the dresses were so full of love and happiness."  

  
There is no rule set in stone saying that a bride has to wear white, and with these fabulous designs, it's even more tempting than ever not to. For the woman that likes to make a statement with her fashion, this is a wonderful way to accomplish that. It's also an amazing look to put all of your bridesmaids in for the wedding day. A perfect design for an outdoor garden wedding, or a great way to bring the outdoors inside for an indoor wedding. 


If this is a style that you'd like to get an even better look at, make an appointment to shop at our South Florida wedding dress store by calling 305-620-6606, or by requesting an appointment online through our website at www.BridesOfAmerica.com. If this isn't your desired style, not to worry, because we have every other type of bridal gown imaginable as well to make sure that every woman has the chance to find the wedding dress of her dreams! 


The gown of your dreams awaits you.

5 Helpful Tips For A Successful Wedding Dress Fitting

The hardest part is over... you and your dream wedding dress have found each other! Once it is ordered and arrives at our bridal boutique in Miami, we want to make sure that it fits you perfectly. There are a few things that you can do to help make that happen, and Brides of America has those tips for you below. 


Time It Right
We recommend that your first bridal gown fitting for alterations happens about one month before the wedding. This is close enough to the wedding that your weight should not fluctuate too much, and it still gives the seamstress enough time to make any necessary alterations. It varies for every person, but there will normally be 3-4 fittings before everything is done. 

Bring Shoes, Accessories, and Undergarments
Having your dress fitted while you are wearing the same shoes you'll be walking down the aisle in is an absolute must! If you don't have your shoes at the first fitting, put hemming the dress off until you have them with you. This is the only way to insure that the length is where you want it. 

Also bring your jewelry, veil, and any other accessories that you will wear with your bridal gown to make sure that everything works together. Brides of America's wedding gowns are so well made that 90% of the time our brides do not need a bra. If you decide that you do need a bra with your wedding dress, then you need to have that on at your fitting. The seamstress will be able to help you make that decision.

Move Around
Once you have the dress to the point that you are comfortable with the fit, move around in it to make sure. You will be doing a lot of sitting, standing, walking, dancing, etc... on your wedding day. Make sure that the fit works well for all of that. Let the seamstress know if anything doesn't feel quite right when you move around. 

Get Bustle Lessons
If you decide on a long wedding dress that will need to be bustled for the reception, do not leave your final fitting without learning how to do it properly. You should also bring along your mother, maid of honor, or someone else that will actually be bustling the gown on the wedding day so that you aren't trying to explain the process to a person while you're in it. 

Don't Be Shy
Be very honest with the seamstress about how the dress feels, and also how you feel about the way the fit looks. We want the gown to fit you as perfectly as possible. Ask questions if you are unsure about anything. Speak up so that it can all be taken care of and you get the look you absolutely love. 


You can expect to pick your fabulously fitted bridal gown up the week of the wedding. It will be pressed and steamed right before you pick it up so that it can be perfect for the wedding. 

When you order your gown from our Miami wedding dress store, the consultant will take precise measurements so that your bridal gown will hopefully need very few alterations. Every body is different though, and you may not be the exact weight during your fitting that you were when you ordered the dress from Brides of America. A proper fitting insures that the final look you get for the wedding day makes that bridal gown look as if it was created especially for your body! 



The gown of your dreams awaits you.

6 Tasks To Take Care Of As Soon As You Get Engaged

He asked and you said yes... but now what? There is a lot of wedding planning to get underway, but that can wait a little while. First things first, the following list of things from Brides Of America should be taken care of before you worry about all of that other stuff. 



Immediately after the engagement...

#1 - Celebrate Together 
This is an exciting moment, but there's no need to share it with the world right away. (Unless, of course, it's a public proposal. Then the cat's already out of the bag!) Take as much time as you want, an hour, a day, or even more, to simply enjoy the fact that you love each other and are ready to share the rest of your lives together. Do a little daydreaming about the big day, as well as the "happily ever after." Everyone else will find out soon enough, but right now is all for the two of you! 

#2 - Get Those Nails Done!
It's time to schedule a manicure so that you can start telling everyone about the engagement. Why, you may ask? Because the first thing everyone is going to want to do, after squeals of delight and loving hugs, is to see that ring! 

#3 - Share The Great News
When you are ready to share the news with the world, start with those that are nearest and dearest to you. Your family and best friends may be hurt if they find out from someone else. Make sure the are in the loop, then feel free to blast it all over social media and shout if from the rooftops. 



Soon after the engagement...

#4 - Start A Wedding Binder
With wedding on the brain, you are going to start seeing great ideas everywhere that you like. Designate a special binder or start an online notebook to keep track of all of these wonderful ideas. When you're ready to make decisions, you'll be glad that you have everything together in one place. 

#5 - Schedule Engagement Photos
There's really no big rush to get these done, unless it's going to be a short engagement. Still, the earlier you have the photos taken and back from the photographer, the sooner you'll have them to use for save-the-dates and your wedding website. Plus, it's always fun to have a professional capture your love and excitement about the upcoming wedding on film. 

#6 - Draft A Guest List
Not always the most fun task, but the size of the guest list will determine the size of venue you will need, plus it will have an affect your budget. It will most likely go through a few drafts before you get a final list together, so start early. 

Those tasks will get you started. Once the excitement has died down a little bit (because it's not going away completely any time soon!) you can begin focusing on a wedding planning checklist. Keep an eye out for your favorite bridal gown styles, and then give us a call to make an appointment at our wedding dress store in Miami to begin trying a few on. Brides of America's goal is to offer the best wedding dresses in Miami as well as online, along with the other fashions and accessories to go along with every bride's special day. 

P.S. Today marks our 100th blog in our series! Thanks to all who've inspired us to continue sharing our expertise with you!

Wedding Dresses Come In Many Shades of "White"

To the untrained eye, most wedding dresses are thought to be white. In reality, what your guests see as "white" is most likely another color, or rather a different shade of a classic white. Our bridal boutique in Miami, as well as our online wedding dress store, feature an array of exquisite bridal gowns in many different shades to compliment any woman's skin coloring and bring out her natural beauty on the wedding day. 

White on the left, and ivory on the right




Brides of America is here to help you find the wedding dress that looks amazing on you, and sometimes the color of the gown plays a huge part in the one that looks the best. White, ivory, and champagne colored dresses can look very similar from a distance, but they each have their own special qualities. 

Back in the 1980's, nearly every single wedding dress sold was made with white fabric. No one was interested in an ivory bridal gown, but this is mainly because in the '80's ivory had a very yellow tint to it. 

Eventually, designers began using an ivory that was much softer and more pleasant to the eye. In the 1990's, bridal gown sales changed and nearly half of the dresses being purchased were ivory, and the other half were white. 

from left to right: ivory,  ivory-blush,  & ivory-champagne

Currently, those numbers have shifted even more. The women that shop in our wedding dress store in South Florida are more interested in ivory gowns, or combinations of ivory and another similar color. About 50% of the wedding dresses sold by Brides of America are ivory, 40% of them are either ivory/gold, ivory/champagne, or ivory caramel, and only 10% of our brides choose to wear actual white.

When you come in for your wedding dress shopping appointment, the talented consultants at our Miami bridal boutique can help you narrow down which shades look the best on your particular skin-tone, as well as which shapes and styles flatter your body the most. Our goal is for you to have that magical moment when you look in the mirror wearing the bridal gown that was made to be worn by you and know, without a doubt, that it is "the one!" 

Give Brides of America a call at 305-620-6606 so that we can book your appointment, or you may also request a time through our website. You will have our undivided attention the entire time you are here. Since we are a "by appointment only" store, there will be no one else interrupting the shopping time that we have set aside especially for you. Together, we will find that wedding dress you've been dreaming of! 



The gown of your dreams awaits you.
