Today we have another Real wedding coming at you live and this time it is with our beautiful bride, Arriell who dressed her bridesmaids in Kennedy Blue. Arriell married the love of her life, Brad and became Mrs. Stalwick which was a dream come true.
With a Blush and Navy color pallette, her bridal party was dressed to the nines.
Arriell and Brad’s wedding was a rustic vintage wedding masterpiece hosted at the adorable Sweet Pea ranch. With antique decor and country line dancing, it was elegantly executed while still showcasing the couple’s style.
“Sweet pea Ranch was the only venue I visited, and I knew instantly that it was the place. Rustic and homey was what I wanted. Simple but elegant. Everything was on site and that made it easy, I like easy! I wanted to get married under a tree and dance in a barn, Both were magical!” - Arriell
Her personality shined through on her wedding day. “I'd say I'm fun and easy going so I wanted a laid back feel while still being a party! I am simple, so I went with less is more. I'm very musical and I wanted our music to feel well rounded and fun.”, said by the bride when asked what she did to showcase her individuality and personality on her wedding day.
She got creative and made the bottle centerpieces herself.
She danced the night away and starting off with her first dance to Al Green’s 'Let's stay Together'. We wish Arriell and Brad nothing but happiness!
Arriell described her wedding day as “Perfect. Beautiful. Fun.” and we couldn’t agree more! Her favorite memory was dipping her new husband on the dance floor and line dancing with some of her best friends - besides marrying her best friend, of course!
She followed the rules of incorporating the traditional something old, new, borrowed, and blue.

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.
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.
Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).
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. Stand up straight and do not “suck in” when taking this measurment.
Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.
Depending on the fabric, a dress can be altered down up to 2 full sizes, but can be very difficult to let out as there is only about .5 inch of fabric to do so at the seams.
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.
