Married on a gorgeous spring day, Meghan and Michael's modern wedding was everything they had imagined and more. The couple's love story began six years ago, after unexpectedly bonding over a breakfast sandwich at work. Years later, they professed their love for one another at a wedding that perfectly captured their laidback, loving personalities. From the stunning downtown venue to the romantic blush pink bridesmaid dresses, every detail was beautifully executed and the wedding was picture-perfect.
Q. How did Michael pop the question?
A. After work, we met up for dinner at one of our favorite restaurants and were about to head home. Right when we left, he called me and said we had to meet some friends at a restaurant (the same restaurant where we had first met). I was not excited, and wanted to stop briefly and then head home. On the walk in, he stopped me near the beautifully lit patio to let me know that none of our friends were there. With heavy snow falling on us, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. He had many other words, but I was in a state of shock and it was all a blur. He had to remind me that I needed to answer yes or no.
Q. What was your favorite moment from the wedding?
A. The ceremony at our downtown venue was such a special moment because we had an opportunity to express our love by reading vows that we prepared individually. It was tough to get through them, but professing our love in our own words, in front of our family and friends, was so special to us both.
Q. Why did you choose Kennedy Blue?
A. I chose Kennedy Blue because they had so many different sizes and styles. I had worn one for my girlfriend’s wedding and felt really good in it! I wanted a long chiffon dress that would be flattering for all different shapes, and was searching for the perfect muted pink. The blush pink bridesmaid dresses ended up being just beautiful and classy, and I was so happy with the quality of the dresses!
Q. What advice would you give to other brides?
A. Stay calm and ask for help when planning. Surround yourself with friends and family, and take their help when you need it! Try to enjoy the planning process, and don't push anything until right before the wedding. You'll want to take that time to be excited for your big day. Enjoy every minute of your wedding day, because it goes by so fast!

As a soon-to-be bride, choosing my wedding flowers has been one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make – and honestly, I still haven’t decided! There are so many pretty options out there and narrowing all of them down has been nothing short of overwhelming. To make the decision a bit easier on you, I’ve gathered some of my absolute favorite bridesmaid bouquets from some of our Kennedy Blue weddings that I know you’re going to love!
Styling your besties in mismatched bridesmaid dresses has been a huge trend for the past few years. And as popular as it still is, we’re slowly starting to see brides revert to having all of their girls dressed in the same style. So how do you decide what’s best for your own wedding? Here are some points to get you thinking about whether you should go the route of mismatched bridesmaid dresses or styling your girls in all the same look.
Romantic, elegant, and totally on-trend; we’re currently obsessing over Bordeaux bridesmaid dresses! Inspired by Marsala, Pantone’s 2016 color of the year, our newest color was created out of the need for a deep red with a romantic pink undertone. Literally, you guys, this color is everything we’ve ever dreamt of! Flattering on literally every skin tone, we think this is a color that your bridesmaids are easily going to fall in love with!
Taking Your Measurements
For the most accurate measurements, do not measure over your clothing. Your measurements should be taken while wearing undergarments similar to the ones you will wear with your dress. The measuring tape shouldn't be pulled too tight or have too much slack, and should always be parallel with the floor.
**Wedding apparel is typically sized differently than retail clothing, so keep in mind that it's not uncommon to find yourself requiring alterations.
Bust size: Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).
Waist size: While standing up straight, bend at the waist to one side. Take the measurement where the natural crease happens in your side. This should be a few inches above your belly button.
Hip size: Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.
Choosing your correct size
Compare these three measurements to the Kennedy Blue size chart above. It is very important that you order the largest size that corresponds to your measurements. For example, if your bust measures 40.5" (size 12), your waist measures 31" (size 10) and your hips measure 41.5" (size 8), we advise that you order a size 12, and get your dress altered down to custom fit your body. Ordering anything smaller than a size 12 would not fit in the bust area. Please note: Our bridal gown size chart is different than the bridesmaids sizing and is listed below.
