As a Minnesota based company, we love a good St. Paul wedding! Katie and Alex took advantage of the two great Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul for their special day. Katie and her ladies got ready in the gorgeous Minneapolis Marriott City Center before heading to The House of Hope Presbyterian Church in St. Paul for the beautiful traditional church ceremony.
The bridesmaids wore mismatched Kennedy Blue bridesmaid dresses in Violet, which perfectly complemented the stunning purple bouquets and decor. We absolutely love the idea of combining high neck styles like Erica and Elena to keep a common theme while allowing 'maids to express their own styles, just like Katie's bridesmaids! Katie featured Violet in her wedding, which is perfect for brides who like a little bit of vibrance that's not too bright!
The reception took place in a historic mansion venue with a clean, white interior. Pops of purple added fun modern vibes to the unique reception hall!
After saying their "I Do's", Alex and Katie headed to the St. Paul College Club with their wedding party to enjoy yard games and a dreamy outdoor patio at the reception!

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.
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.
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.
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.
