2019 Wedding Dress Trends

Sarasota Bridal Fashion Show

Your wedding dress is one of the most photographed pieces of your wedding day and one the most symbolic outfits you’ll ever wear.

You’re not just choosing a dress, you’re selecting your statement piece as you transition in a new chapter of your life.

So when Ashlee McGeehan, my dear friend and Daytime TV producer asked us to help her choose a wedding dress, we reached out to our favorite Tampa Bay bridal shops, Truly Forever Bridal, Nikki’s Glitz and Glam, and Isabel O’Neil Bridal to style this gorgeous bride-to-be.
