When to Wear a Short Wedding Dress

Traditionally, wedding dresses have been long. They’re generally perceived to be both more formal, and more conservative. But a gorgeous short wedding dress can be just as glam, not to mention, fitting for a variety of occasions. Here are 7 occasions to wear a short St. Pucchi wedding dress. 

7 Occasions For a Short Wedding Dress

Wear a Short Wedding Dress to the Reception

That big and beautiful ballgown may be beautiful for your I Dos, but it may not be practical for dancing the night away! Slip into a gorgeous St. Pucchi short wedding dress so you can enjoy the reception in something short, comfortable and fuss-free

Wear a Short Wedding Dress to a Beach Wedding 

If you’re having a beach wedding, a short wedding dress is totally appropriate. You’ll keep the sand off your feet and the more laid-back vibe fits in perfectly for a beach wedding. (We have even more beach wedding ideas here). 

Wear a Short Wedding Dress to Your Anniversary Party

Already married? A short wedding dress is a fabulous frock for celebrating your anniversary party. Whether it’s your 10 year wedding anniversary or your 25th wedding anniversary, a short white wedding dress is a stylish way to celebrate the occasion

Wear a Short Wedding Dress to a Daytime Wedding

Hosting a casual daytime wedding like a beautiful brunch? Consider a short wedding dress for the affair. It’s just as festive as a traditional wedding dress and the perfect way to fit into your daytime theme, without being over-the-top.

Wear a Short Wedding Dress for Your Destination Wedding 

Besides being completely impractical, hauling a giant wedding dress to your destination wedding is just an absolute pain. For a no fuss, no muss solution, travel with a gorgeous short wedding dress for your destination wedding.

Wear a Short Wedding Dress to Show Off Your Gorgeous Gams! 

If you have legs to days and bridal shoes that are just as stunning as your wedding dress, show them off with a short wedding dress! A high-low dress like this St. Pucchi wedding dress is a great way to show some leg while tk drama. 

Wear a Short Wedding Dress Later On

The fact of the matter is, you likely won’t wear your wedding dress ever again. But if you invest in a short wedding dress, you can absolutely wear it to another soiree in the future! Whether it’s an all-white party, a summer affair or even your anniversary party, a short wedding dress can come in handy for a future event.

Real Bride: Janie & Ozzie's Maui Wedding

From the Bride: Jubilance, elation, and sheer excitement consumed me from the moment I put on my St Pucchi wedding dress on August 20th, 2015!  Since I was “Maui’d” in Hawaii I really didn’t need much to make my wedding look beautiful. Maui has the most gorgeous scenery, and I incorporated it into my decor: pineapples painted gold with tropical flowers for centerpieces and a surf board for my seating chart. Wearing my stunning St Pucchi dress made me feel like a Hawaiian mermaid, and with my handsome groom by my side my wedding was truly the most magical day of my life. You can feel the happiness and sense the romance; Melissa McClure Photography captured it beautifully.

Easter Wedding Ideas

Springtime and Easter is upon us, and what better way to celebrate the new season than with these Easter wedding ideas!

An Easter wedding is the perfect occasion to break out all things pastel, and a great way to celebrate the spring season. Not sure how to incorporate this spring theme into your wedding day? Here are some of our favorite Easter wedding ideas.

Easter Weddings Ideas

Pastel everything? Yes, please! Pastels and tulips are the essentials of Easter, so they are a must for any Easter wedding. Use tulips as centerpieces or your bridal bouquet. Treat guests with takeaway desserts that double as decor items with these pretty pastel macarons. 

White wedding dresses may be traditional, but spring is the perfect time to break the rules and try something pretty in pink. We love the idea of incorporating the color throughout the wedding decor, too. 

If you are having a wedding on a beautiful Easter Sunday, why not take the unconventional route and incorporate staples of the holiday in the decor? Use Peter Rabbit in your table settings and take risks with your bouquet. No need to stick to typical flowers for your big day, grab something that screams spring.

Even bigger bonus? Grab this dress as part of our ongoing St. Pucchi sample sale.

Now that the weather is warming up, try a wedding dress that's short and sweet. Keep with the Easter theme and incorporate bunnies and Easter eggs throughout the room. Still a kid at heart? Top your cake with your favorite Easter candy!

What do you think? Would you incorporate any of these Easter wedding ideas into your Big Day?

The Story:

Nicole Grover and Eric Taylor met at their private high school while on the same chapel worship team. After dating for four years, Eric popped the question on their annual family trip to Santa Cruz, California. Her family was awaiting nearby and caught the entire proposal on camera! The couple had a gorgeous, fairytale wedding in The Fairmont San Francisco's glamorous ballroom, which was outfitted with cream and gold floral centerpieces and elegant gold chiavari chairs. Nicole looked ravishing in her cream St. Pucchi ballgown made entirely of sumptuous Thai silk and featuring layers of crystals and a bubble skirt. Congratulations to Nicole and Eric, your wedding was absolutely breathtaking!

18 Success Principles of Relationships

This article originally appeared on The Huffington Post

"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." (Rumi)

When it comes to relationships many of us are on the constant search for "the one" so that we may live "happily ever after".

The truth is that we are looking at all the wrong places because, believe it or not, the answers are inside each of us. The myth that "My happiness is dependent on my partner" is just that: a myth. It means that you are giving away your power and living your life by someone else's standards for you.

The following principles will encourage you to evaluate your expectations, and stimulate you to expand your relationships to heightened levels of enjoyment and increased peace within, by integrating the wisdom into your daily reality.

1. Respect: Without mutual respect a relationship is doomed for failure. Respect each other's ideas and decisions with an undercurrent of love and trust, knowing that you have each other's goodness at heart.

2. Adapt: It is common knowledge that we each grow as our relationship evolves. Don't fight this but embrace each other, giving each other room and keep an open mind and an open heart.

3. Be Courteous: Real happiness has its foundation on the altar of understanding and kind words. Even if you do not agree with your partner, merely displaying calm silence, sincerity and courteous words shows that you care.

4. Listen More: Talking and acting from your own viewpoint most of the time, instead of trying to see the other's side, shows lack of care and understanding. This does not mean that you compromise on your own ideals and inner peace. Agreeing to disagree is a quality that can be cultivated.

5. Stop the Blame Game: When you find yourself in an unpleasant situation it is best to get out of it as graciously as you can. To focus on the issue and blow things out of proportion is fruitless. You can teach people to mend their faults a hundred times better by setting a good example than you can by harsh or self-righteous words.

6. Practice Self-Awareness: It is great practice to reflect once in a while on what you are contributing to your relationship. Look in the mirror and ask yourself if you are being judgmental, hypercritical, unfair, defensive and unkind. Constantly course correct.

7. Admit your mistakes: This is one of the hardest things to do, especially when you know you are wrong. But this simple gesture will bring you peace of mind and increased love and acceptance in your relationship.

8. Celebrate each other: Lift each other up and celebrate the small and large victories together. Sharing is caring. Be happy for each other.

9. Forgive Often: Mark Twain said it best: "Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it". Forgiving, by its very act, makes you the bigger person. Sometimes you forgive even though you know your partner is wrong. You forgive the other not for their sake, but for your own. The inner peace you attain as a result makes it all worthwhile.

10. Love to be Loved: If you wish to be loved, start loving the other first. Whatever you want others to be, first be that yourself, then you will find others responding in like manner to you. When each wants to see the other happy, then loving each other comes naturally.

11. Be Careful How You React: The way you react to a situation determines the outcome. If the outcome is not to your liking, then respond differently. Instead of blaming the event or your partner, look honestly at yourself. The answers may surprise you.

12. Communicate: Sometimes we allow anger and resentment to fester. When something is bothering you, it is best to communicate sooner rather than later. In communicating use the word "I" and not "You". By doing so you are not accusing the other, merely stating how you feel. Such as "I am disappointed that..."; "I resent..."; "I hate it when..."; "I would love it if..." etc.

13. Appreciate Each Other: Make a list of what you appreciate about your partner and your relationship. Read it often. Sometimes it's the little things that we need to be reminded of, that help bring back the reasons and the focus on why we fell in love in the first place. Speak it out and let him know how much he is appreciated.

14. Acknowledge and Let Go of Each Other's Past: We each have skeletons in our closets, instances and events that we are not too proud of, or that have brought us sorrow or shame; relationships that have failed, or people that we would rather not be reminded of. Let it all go. It does not serve your relationship. That was then, and this is now.

15. Exude Peace: To be at peace with one's immediate relations, is the greatest of all happiness next to divine happiness. Unless you are at peace with yourself, you cannot bring peace into your relationship. Meditation, prayer, spiritual practice- each contributes to help us achieve peace in our lives. Pray together and enjoy meals together. The more time you share together, the deeper your love for one another will grow.

16. Share Your Finances: Be willing to share and be truthful and responsible in money matters. Even if one makes more money than the other, each of you has an equal say about joint expenses in the household. You decide to agree on separate or joint accounts from the very get go, so that your mutual decision does not affect your relationship and intimacy in your lives.

17. Be Best Friends First: Life can bring many challenges. One of the most wonderful things about marriage and relationships is that you have each other to share your sorrows and joys with. Keep your friendship strong by going on date nights together, talk and laugh with each other. When you come from a place of true friendship, nothing will faze you because you will always know that you have each other's back, as well as the strength to overcome any adversity that life may bring.

18. Cultivate a Wide, Diverse Circle of Friends: Interacting with your circle of mutual friends, and sharing your time with others together, makes you appreciate your partner even more and can be a source of great joy and fulfillment in your relationship.

Spring 2016 Wedding Dress Trends

Now that Bridal Fashion Week has come to a close, we can look forward to some of the most beautiful trends that emerged. Here, we've rounded up some of our favorite spring 2016 wedding dress trends inspired by the shows. 

Off-the-Shoulder 

Off-the-shoulder styles are a big fashion trend at the moment, so it's no surprise the trend has trickled into wedding dresses, as well. It's a great way to show off a little skin in a subtle way. 

Cutout Neckline

Plunging and cutout necklines were a big spring 2016 wedding dress trend; if a plunging neckline is too risqué for you, this cutout look is a good one to try. 

Empire Waist

The empire waist gown is a classic that doesn't go out of style and is particularly great for brides looking for a dress that elongates the body. This one features gorgeous, delicate details on the bodice and an equally stunning skirt. 

Overskirt

For the bride wanting a truly fashion-forward look that her groom and guests won't soon forget, this overskirt wedding dress style makes a beautiful statement. 

Subtle Color

An-all white dress is timeless, but a hint of color is fresh and modern. This chantilly lace dress over mint green silk is subtle in its use of color. 

Dramatic Sleeves

For brides who want to strike the balance between trendy and timeless, dramatic sleeves prove to be a bold and beautiful choice. Th sheer bell sleeves feature gorgeous hand embroidered floral appliqués. 

Sheer

A little bit of sheer is a playful addition to any wedding dress. This St. Pucchi wedding gown features a touch of sheer on the bodice as well as the bottom half of the skirt for a look that's still modest yet contemporary.

Matching Your Wedding Dress to Your Venue

Two of the biggest decisions you'll make when planning your wedding are the venue that you'll pick and the wedding dress. But does one relate to the other? Well, yes! Keep the tone of your wedding in mind and overall theme with our guide to matching your wedding dress to your venue. 

The Beach Getaway

Heading to the water for your big day? A dress that's appropriate for a beach wedding tends to be less formal and fitted, which is one of the reasons we love the flirty feel of this St. Pucchi wedding dress with a traditional tulle skirt. 

The Grand Ballroom

A beautiful ballroom wedding demands an equally stunning dress. Try a voluminous gown or mermaid style dress. 

The Great Outdoors 

This dress varies per setting. Going for a chic mountain look? Go for something with sleeves, this could be a gorgeous lace sleeve or cute overcoat. If you are having vineyard or barn wedding, light airy fabrics are a great way to go

Sophisticated in the City 

Having a downtown affair? Try something sophisticated and classy. A stunning cityscape backdrop calls for an equally stunning dress. Another great option for a city wedding is an show-stopping veil

No matter the venue, make sure your dress matches your unique style.

Fourth of July Wedding Ideas

Real Bride Feature: Kassie & Ryan

This week, we're excited to share our first real bride feature showcasing Kassie and Ryan's gorgeous Las Vegas wedding! This creative couple (both photographers) threw a bash filled with personal touches. They said their "I Dos" at Springs Preserve and Kassie looked absolutely stunning in her St. Pucchi wedding gown. Luxurious and elegant, this fit and flare style flattered her perfectly. The hand-beaded bodice attaches at the knee to a layered tulle skirt full of layers of flirty ruffles. Kassie, this dress is just gorgeous on you. 

Congratulations to the happy couple, your wedding was gorgeous!
