Lovelies, are you feeling the pressure to change yourself for your wedding day?

If the answer is ‘yes,’ we totally feel you, Babe. We’ll be the first ones to admit that finding a wedding dress can be an extremely vulnerable experience. We hear firsthand the pressure our brides feel to change themselves before their wedding.  It’s heartbreaking to hear our brides feel like they have to be a perfect version of themselves on their wedding day. At Lovely Bride, we believe you should be YOU to SAY ‘I DO.’ We’ve started a Instagram Stories series called #IAmLovely to bring honesty out into the wedding world to let our brides know we love them just they way they are. Each month we feature beautiful badass women telling us something that makes them lovely. This series of self affirmations has taught us so much about our inspiring community of #OurLovelies.

We’re continuing our self love celebration, but in true Lovely fashion we wanted to switch it up just a bit. This month, we are featuring unique and stunning babes from Dallas, Texas. We absolutely love how Lovely Bride Dallas interpreted our #IAmLovely Instagram Story series into a styled shoot. Keep reading to find out what makes these ladies lovely. Then click here to check out our Instagram Story highlight of all of the incredible women we’ve featured so far.

My Fearlessness is Lovely

Growing up, I came from a family who hated change! I quickly learned that my fearlessness is what set me apart. Whether it’s moving across the country or wearing something that makes a statement, I’m not afraid of trying something new. And now, my favorite part of being a Lovely is getting to encourage others to be bold + authentically themselves without worrying about what anyone else thinks!

My Ability to Feel is Lovely

I’m an enneagram 4, so I feel deep deep deep. A lot of times I’m the one who my friends cry to or process any kind of emotions they’re going through with. I don’t always have something to say to make someone feel better, but I can always relate, or at least empathize. I’ve found that this is a beautiful way to connect with brides. If they’re feeling stressed or worried or overwhelmed, I can get in it with them. FEEL it with them. I love loving people in that way. It’s usually small in the moment, but it always means more than we truly know.

My Curves are Lovely

I used to be so embarrassed about my weight. Clothes were hard to find, boys didn’t like me, & I felt like everyone was staring at me for the wrong reasons. But I have grown SO MUCH. Because of all those obstacles I’ve realized that life is way too short to hate on yourself. God has only given us this one body & I have learned to love what He has given me. Loving the little features from my small eyes to my curves. I love my body now more than ever.

My Type 1 Diabetes is Lovely

It’s hard getting diagnosed with an invisible disease. No one knows until you pull your insulin pump out at dinner, or until you’re frantically eating fruit snacks because your blood sugar is low. It’s a constant battle with my body and people not understanding. Despite all the lows, I feel like I’m a stronger person because of it! I’m more cautious of the foods I put in my body. I’m able to relate with my brides who have medical issues. I have a whole new outlook on health and what it means to me. It’s molded me into who I am today, so for that I’m grateful!

My Big Smile Is Lovely

For as long as I can remember I was always really insecure about the size of my mouth. People would constantly point out that my smile was ‘too big’ and that, in turn, caused me to withhold from letting my true joy shine through… The moment I willingly chose to embrace my cheesy grin, was the same moment everyone else did too. Beauty begins the moment you decided to be yourself.

My Joy is Lovely

‘You’re one of the most joyful strangers I’ve ever met,’ someone once told me after a quick interaction at Target. To date, it’s one of the greatest compliments I’ve ever received. I’ve struggled with restraining my joy out of fear of being ‘too much’ or coming across as ‘fake’ but now I know that I am most alive when I’m smiling big and loving deep – and I love that.
