Alana and Brian tied the knot at the West Chase Golf Course in Brownsburg, Indiana. Their big day featured purple, mint, and silver as the main colors for a magical wedding. All her bridesmaids were rocking the Arabella – the perfect choice as three of her bridesmaids ended up being pregnant during her wedding!

Q: Why did you pick this specific venue?
“We wanted to do an outside ceremony and indoor reception so the golf course was picturesque! Unfortunately it ended up raining but the pavilion had over-sized side-by-side windows so it ended up working out perfectly.”
Q: Is there a story behind this color theme and why you chose it?
“We did purple, mint, and silver. My husband and I both love purple (and he looks so good in it!) so we knew we wanted to do purple for sure very early on. As we started to plan, it was just way too much purple so we needed to break it up. My 8 year old daughter suggested mint green and it made for the perfect spring pastel palette.”
Q: Best part of your big day?
“For me, the most memorable part of the day was when my husband exchanged vows and a ring with my daughter during the ceremony. He truly embraces us as a package and there was not a dry eye in the room as he vowed his commitment not only to me, but also to my daughter.”
Q: Describe your wedding in one word.
Q: Why did you choose Azazie for your bridesmaids?
“Finding a bridesmaid dress was the most challenging part of the entire process. I had 7 girls that ranged from a size 0 to a size 20. I went to all of the chains and was underwhelmed with the options. I had promised my girls early on that the dress would not be over $150. It is impossible to find a long dress that isn’t extremely plain for under $150 at a chain. That is when I nervously started my search online. I stumbled across Azazie and it was the ONLY site that I found multiple dresses I liked. The sample dresses put my mind at ease to ordering online. I ordered several that I liked and had all of my bridesmaids over to try stuff on. The Arabella was just gorgeous. We found out a week before placing our order that one of the girls was pregnant. Luckily, the Arabella was also flattering for a growing belly… and it’s a good thing because I ended up having 3 pregnant at the wedding. Talk about a challenge!”
Q: Any tips for someone getting married soon?
“Don’t put too much pressure on yourself. It all comes together in the end. I was very disappointed with not being able to have an outdoor ceremony due to rain. However, the gloomy skies and the bright purple dresses made for some amazing outdoor photos. Just roll with it and in the end, you’ll be a married woman!”
Q: How was the planning process for you?
“ I am very much a planner by nature so the special details in the wedding were very close to my heart. It is fun to plan the biggest party of your life!”
Q: How did you find Azazie?
“Pinterest! I was hooked once I found the site. The colors are gorgeous and the dresses are unique. Not your typical ‘blah’ bridesmaids dresses.”
Q: Last thoughts?
“I think our photos speak for themselves but I highly recommend Azazie! All 7 of our bridesmaids were very happy – and it is tough to please 8 women (including myself).”
