Real Bride: Amber Bolt

January 28

Today, we’re featuring our gorgeous real bride, Amber, wearing one of our timeless wedding dresses, Rhianna Royale.”When I was looking for dresses online, I had pulled up the Rhianna Royale, and bookmarked it on my computer,” Amber said. “The next morning when I came downstairs, my mom had printed the same picture from her computer! She told me there was a store nearby that was having a Maggie Sottero trunk show, so we went to see if they had it. It was the first dress I tried on, and we instantly knew it would be a perfect fit for my big day.” This classic strapless wedding dress looked stunning on Amber, and we’re just smitten with her adorable wedding. See more below!

Update: Our Rhianna Royale gown is discontinued; see our Elita gown for more gorgeous florals and embellishments!

Dress: Rhianna Royale

Favorite part of the dress:  “I fell in love with all of the detail in the gown. The roses and beading were unlike anything I had ever seen. We had the neckline made into a sweetheart. My mom hand-beaded and stained my veil to match the gown as well, which was gorgeous with all of the detail in the dress.”

Favorite wedding day moment: “My favorite moment of the day was seeing my dad’s face when I turned the corner to walk down the aisle. He had tears in his eyes as he walked me down to my husband who was also wiping away tears. As he handed me to Adam, my dad leaned forward and gave me a kiss, then kissed Adam on the cheek, which made everyone laugh. It was a great moment and definitely one I will always remember.”

Advice for future brides:  “I would tell future brides to just have fun and let things happen. So many people put too much pressure on the day being perfect and are devastated when something goes wrong. Enjoy your guests, your family and your new life that everyone is celebrating with you and realize you can’t control it all! My wedding was by far one of the best nights of my life and not because it was perfect but because of all the love that was around us!”
