A Blue and Pink Rock 'n Roll Wedding

by Danielle Salazar September 04, 2015

After (hesitantly) being set up by friends, Erin was smitten with Ben from the very beginning. From their first date of wake boarding to their rock climbing proposal, it’s obvious that this couple is nothing short of adventurous, fun, and madly in love. From the bold, bright colors, to the ’90’s rock cover band, everything on their wedding day perfectly expressed their lively and lovable personalities. From how Ben popped the big question to how Erin chose her navy blue bridesmaid dresses, check out the full Q&A below and get a glimpse into the wedding day of the happy couple!

Details From Their Blue and Pink Wedding Day

A Blue and Pink Rock 'n Roll Wedding

Q. How did you and Ben meet?
A. My best friend was dating Ben’s best friend (they actually got married a few months before us at the same venue!). They tried to set us up for over a year, but I kept refusing to meet him because I didn’t want to be set up. We finally met at a birthday party and I immediately fell for him.

Q. How did he pop the question?
A. We are rock climbers and I had been saying I really wanted to go to New York to see a Broadway show. So for my birthday he took me on a surprise trip to the city. The first day he took me rock climbing in Central Park, and hid the ring in my chalk bag. I kept putting my hands in the bag and not noticing. Every time I walked away he would adjust the ring to make it more obvious while my back was turned (he caught all of this on his GoPro). Finally, on the third attempt, I noticed it, and of course I said yes!

Q. What's one fun fact about you and Ben as a couple?
A. Many people would be surprised to know that Ben (the quiet one) is the extrovert, and I (the loud one) am the introvert.

Q. Tell us about your wedding day​!
A. We were married at the Queen Café in Wilmington Delaware on 12/13/14. It’s a music venue, so we really wanted our reception to be a big concert. We happened to know an awesome ‘90s cover band, the Rollerblades, and they totally made the night. Everyone had a blast, and the dance floor was never empty. We also had fun props like slap bracelets, nerd glasses, and glow sticks. We were lucky because the venue didn’t need a lot of decorating, and it looked absolutely amazing. Both of us had the time of our lives, and couldn’t have asked for a better night.

Q. How would you describe your wedding in 3 words?
A. 90s. Rock. Concert.

Q. What was it like seeing him for the first time on the big day?
A. So we did the big reveal on the sidewalk outside the venue. Some random guy pulled his car up, and parked in the middle of the street right next to us and just watched, which was kind of awkward. Of course I was crying my eyes out (with happiness!) when Ben turned around and saw me. Ben’s reaction was so sweet and the way he looked at me is definitely a moment I’ll never forget.

Q. Why did you choose Kennedy Blue for your 'maids?
A. I was searching Pinterest for navy blue bridesmaid dresses and stumbled upon the Kennedy Blue Harper and Charlotte. I absolutely loved the cuts, and the lace work. The At Home Try-On program was really convenient because some of my bridesmaids lived far away from me. Not only was the process really easy, but we were blown away by the wonderful quality of the dresses. The girls looked stunning in them!

Q. What was the most challenging part of wedding planning and why?
A. It was challenging because the venue was an hour away from our house, which made it somewhat difficult to picture what everything was going to look like. We made all the decorations, so we were a little nervous they wouldn’t fit with the venue. Luckily, with the help of friends and family, everything came together better than we could have imagined.

Q. What advice would you give to other brides?
A. Don’t stress yourself out, go with the flow, and enjoy the whole process. At the end of the day, if things don’t go exactly as planned, you’ll still be happily married, which is the important part. Besides, quirks are what make your wedding unique!

Measurement Guide

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.
