The First Look Blog, a new local bridal blog with a laid-back take on weddings, asked to borrow a few pieces from The Find Bridal and we jumped at the chance to let some of our dresses as jewelry loose to go play! Below you'll see an Erin Cole over-skirt and earrings, Monique Lhuillier dress, and more captured by the talented Aura Group.
This week's #weeklyfind is the stunning Alon Livnè Ocean dress.
Alon Livnè is a bright young star on the bridal fashion scene. Alon trained under Alexander McQueen and Roberto Cavalli before becoming a young sensation in Israel (see photo at right, seriously, he's so young - and handsome!). Celebrities like Beyonce and Lady Gaga have worn Alon Livnè and now you can too with his ultra-sophisticated and very cool designs available now at The Find Bridal.
Hurry up and find the Ocean dress for 70% off this week only. Make your appointment now.
Find Calla Blanche
That's right, we can order it just for you.
We're a sample sale store, that means you can get really amazing prices on wedding dress samples, but we know that our brides come in all kinds of sizes, not just sample size. Now, you can find a few designers here and we can order it in your size including this stunning Calla Blanche gown that just arrived!
If you've heard whispers of two magic words, "sample sale," but never really understood what that means we're here to clarify. First of all, throw out what you know about a regular shopping experience. At high-end bridal boutiques, samples are the dresses ordered from the designer to keep in store for brides to try on. Then, just like back in the days of lace parasols, the measurements are sent off to the designers to create a custom gown for each bride. It's a glamorous and old-world experience, that's likely once in a lifetime, but you know what else is once in a lifetime? Finding your perfect designer wedding dress at 40% or more off of the original price.
Sample sales are an opportunity to shop for dresses at a discounted price; wedding dress boutiques looking to clear out their inventory of samples will mark down the dresses to make way from the latest designs off the runway. So, they'll rent a space, pile up what they're trying to get rid of and line up girls eager to for a steal (who isn't?).
Now, the moment you've been waiting for here's how to shop a sample sale without sacrificing on the special experience of picking out your wedding dress: Shop at The Find Bridal.
The Find Bridal is an all new way to find your designer wedding dress, at just a fraction of the cost, in a setting that's as stylish as you've always dreamt your wedding dress shopping experience would be. Located in the bridal paradise of Coral Gables, FL, The Find Bridal offers something totally, and completely different, a modern loophole to finding a sample sale - it's always here. Think of the store as a cool outlet for ultra-high end wedding dresses, from the designer names you've seen on celebrities as they walk down the red carpet and the aisle including Monique Lhuillier, Berta, Hayley Paige, Ines Di Santo, Naeem Khan, Vera Wang, Carolina Herrera, Yolan Cris, Inbal Dror, Jenny Packham, Marchesa and more!
What's the catch? No catch, but a few notes, all the dresses are purchased right off the rack, that means we'll refer you to a talented seamstress for your alterations but what you see is what you get. Sizes are limited, and samples are usually purchased in smaller sizes (but we now carry a few collections that can be ordered in any size!). There's just one of each dress, so if you find something you like, we'd encourage you to make the decision on the spot so that someone else doesn't find it from right under you, just like at an outlet.
One last thing! The Find Bridal also has a #WeeklyFind, one dress per week that is marked 70% off of the original price! Yes 70% OFF! So follow along on Instagram @thefindbridal for #weeklyfinds, new arrivals and more!

Modern Winter Wedding on Miami Beach
Follow Along - @TheFindBridal - on Instagram.
Mary found her Inbal Dror dream dress at The Find Bridal and wore it to her wedding this past weekend in Savannah, Georgia. Married at St. John the Baptist, Mary and Albert were a winter wedding dream.
The weather dropped that morning so their trolleys full of Miami guests (200+!) whipped out their furs and bundled up for a night of dancing in a cozy barn. Mary, a vegan, made sure that the wedding food was vegetarian and Albert, who's been known to sneak a churrasco whenever he can, was a sport about it! Guests enjoyed quinoa superfood salad, stuffed peppers, vegan lasagna and grilled root vegetables - the perfect fuel for 8 hours of dancing!
After the reception, guests piled back into the historic trolleys and took over a local dive bar with a DJ spinning oldies on vinyl! Talk about the perfect Southern wedding!
