Cancer (June 22– July 23) The Soul Sister – Aleana’s Bridal Shop


Personality: 
You are more loyal than a golden retriever, and more nurturing than Mother Goose.  Cancer rules “women,” so you are the zodiac’s “soul sister.”  You connect with all the women in your life in such a profound way that you are like “Mother Nature,” but in tangible form, and are the best friend to all of your pals.  The Cancer sign is covered in contradictions.  You’re willful and independent when it comes to your professional/public life, such as your career, and you lean heavily on family and friends when it comes to emotional support.  As a water sign, you’re deeply in-tune with your feelings.  You’re an intuitive old-soul with charming character.

Style: Old Fashioned FemininityVive la femme…Vintage Vixen.

Cancer is the sign of femininity, yet like a shy little Crab, you can be a bit self-conscious about your womanly body.  Your true beauty emerges when you veer toward body-conscious styles that flatter your curves, rather than hide or exaggerate them.  Old-fashioned glamour (think: 1940s era) looks fresh and timeless on you.  Cancers are one of the girliest girls around and love anything lace.  You love to dress up and be appreciated for your effort.  Cancer women don’t fret over uncomfortable fabrics or styles but rather look their best in floral motifs or a fitted bodice.  You’re a parading paradox: As a teenager, you were most likely to pair a prom dress with sneakers or pencil skirt with a tee-shirt.  Your natural sensitivity to color and style can make you an amazing dresser, with a great eye for bargains and vintage treasures.

 

Your Dream Dress/ Wedding Dress Horoscope:
Part of you longs for a flowing beach dress; the other part yearns for a formal frock.  You’ll find the amazing in-between: a gown that flawlessly marries classic glamour with spunky and carefree.   Avoid the overly embellished and opt for a stunning, satin-organza frock that flatters every curve.  Your sign rules the chest, so a gown that skims the figure without revealing too much flesh is most flattering and will keep your cups from overflowing!  Your dream dress will be made of lace, floral embellishments around the waist, a full train, and dainty straps.  The lovely gown will scream with glamour and femininity…and it will be one that cannot be carried better by anyone else but you.

Gemini (May 22 – June 21) Miss Pretty, Playful Personality – Aleana’s Bridal Shop


Personality
:
Gemini’s are most well-known for having dual personalities, jack-rabbit energy, and the gift of communication (translation? Chatty Cathy!).  You’re precocious, knowledgeable, and quick to dole out witty one-liners.  “Wall flower” and “shrinking violet” are terms that can never apply to the Gemini: you’re effervescent and surrounded at parties.  The centerpiece of every event is you.  Others are drawn to your bubbly nature as you have the ability to turn the most mundane occasion into a sparkling affair.

 

StyleStyle-schizophrenia… Mix and Match Mistress…one day you’re Jackie O…the next, Lady Gaga.  You swing from one extreme to the next and aren’t afraid to take the occasional fashion leap of faith.  As the sign of the Twins, you’re all about variety and keeping people guessing.  One day, you couldn’t care less about fashion, slipping into sporty cargo pants and a tank top.  The next day, your “alter ego” takes over, sending you out in a colorful concoction that turns heads and makes jaws drop.  You’re an impulse shopper whose mind changes constantly and your fashion choices largely depend on your mood, but all and all, you’re flirty and playful.

 

Your Dream Dress/ Wedding Dress Horoscope:
Pay careful attention to what “personality” you’re feeling the day you go wedding dress shopping.  Because of Gemini’s dual personality, any style dress works.  And since you’re the “no fuss” kind of bride, you are happy with anything figure flattering and comfortable.  The simplicity of a dress accompanied by flowy fabrics would be a perfect match for a Gemini.   A knee-length bridal gown with a bubble skirt is the ideal dress for the Gemini: eye-catching yet not over-the-top.  A simple, striking gown that is everything but restricting is ultimately what you want; and a soft flow of fabric allows for graceful movement, just what you crave.  An involved detail in the middle of the busts calls for just the right amount of attention.  Your best features are the arms, hands, and torso, so emphasize this with a sleeveless dress, gorgeous lace gloves, or a cinch at the waist to show off that trim torso.  Adorn your wedding day hair style with a single, beauteous gardenia.

Taurus (April 21 – May 21) The Comfort Creature – Aleana’s Bridal


Personality
:
Don’t mess with this down to earth bull!  Reliable, steadfast, and yes, stubborn describes the Taurus to a T.  You’re loyal, kind, and level-headed during conflicts- but once you’re pushed too far, the raging bull is revealed!  That said, you are not the woman to be messed with, taking advantage of, etc.  You are no fool.  Taurus woman are practical, graceful earth signs whose reassuring presence makes others feel automatically at ease when they are around you.  Your humble abode is dualistic: humble and comfortable with expensive tastes.  Your fridge is full of fancy, comfort foods and your closets bursting with couture.  A wise spender and very successful, Taurus know how to keep their feet on the ground.  Your earthy vibes pull at the heartstrings of others…overwhelming them with gratitude just to be in your calming company.  You’re the girl that everybody wants to hug…YOU invented cuddling!  Soothing in nature, Taurus are a guaranteed comfort zone.

 

StyleGraceful Goddess…Earthy Edge…a timeless classic and simple elegance brings out your ethereal beautyLess is more for the practical Taurus woman.  You’re traditional with a high-end twist.  You’re never seen without your trademark pearl necklace and your argyle cardigan.  You stick to the basics and earth tones, but have a knack for mixing understated pieces with the embellished.  The secret to your style success?: As a graceful earth sign, you have a way of making polished pieces that would look stuffy on anyone else, such as a tie-neck blouse, seem fresh and delightful on you.  You’ve got a fierce edge to stage your fearless side every now and then.

 

Your Dream Dress/ Wedding Dress Horoscope:
Taurus is tactile and sensual, so fabrics pleasing to touch and gowns that are comfortable are among the favorite picks for a Taurean bride.  You’ll feel amazing only in a bridal gown spun from the most luxurious materials – silk chiffon and organza.  An off-the-shoulder neckline and string of pearls speaks to your traditional sensibilities.  Streamlined gowns, with hints of beige, browns or tans are always accepted.  A Taurus girl should always play up her neck with a baring cut, as that is her best feature, along with the throat, collarbone, and shoulders.  Any Taurean will go wild for a gorgeous gown made of satin with intricate detailing under the bust and down the back to the train, which makes it an eloquent, unforgettable dress.  A bustle in the train calls for the immediate attention you crave in a wedding dress.  Wear your hair in a loose chignon with tresses framing your face.  When it’s all pulled together, you’ll look like you just stepped off the set of a classic black-and-white film.

Aries (March 21 – April 20) The Bold Beauty – Aleana’s Bridal Shop


Personality
: 
 Aries are innovative leaders and pioneers.  Impulsive and exuberant, you’re always the first of your friends to try something new like getting a pixie haircut…or to be the daring one to dive into frigid waters or to approach a guy at a bar and make the first move.  You’re more certain of yourself when you’re strutting down the road less traveled.  If something doesn’t capture your attention instantly, you’ll move on.  You know what you want and how to get it.  A decisive, ballsy, blunt, beauty with brains makes everybody trust in your opinions and guided directions, using you as their prime role model.

Style: Innocent Vixen…As the zodiac’s trailblazer, you’ll try any trend.  You take risks: violet tresses, thigh-high boots, maybe a Mohawk (you’ll try it and handle the consequences later!).  You’re more frightened of being boring than appearing on the “worst dressed” list.  You’re a fearless fashionista who lives by her own courageous rules.  A mix of girlie-girl and warrior woman, you can get away with outfits that reflect both sides of your personality: pairing a flouncy skirt with a crisp, tailored blazer or a miniskirt with combat boots.  Bold colors, like red, are your colors, as well as neutrals like black.  The most important thing for you and your sense of fashion is to never blend into the crowd.  Aries girls want to see and be seen in originality.

Your Dream Dress/ Wedding Dress Horoscope: An Aries bride wants to stun the crowd.  Tradition is not on the guest list for your wedding.  You’ll be inexplicably drawn to trend-setting, strapless numbers with colored accents in the form of a sash or trim.  You are the queen of the ball…and you want your whole look to reflect that honor.  You have a taste for bold trends and sexy styles, so go for a grand gown that makes a bold, beautiful statement.  Wear a dress that commands attention with pretty detailing around a bodice or neckline, some pearls, sequins, or lace.  The gown you’re going for is one with a trendy design, yet still possesses classic elegance.   Flaunt your flawless facial features and hair…and even wear a classy feather headpiece to top off the whole bridal look, Aries style.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20) The Dreamy Princess – Aleana’s Bridal Shop


Personality
: Your sign is a true chameleon, embodying a bit of the whole zodiac.  You are an emotive, empathetic, and inspirational old soul, and this applies to all areas of your life.  As a Pisces, you get absorbed into the projects you are passionate about – and get a rush from succeeding at those things.  You enjoy creating art and surrounding yourself with beautiful objects.

 Style: Enchanting Angel…Elegant, Edgy, Free spirited… with an emphasis on function over excessive-styling.  A simple style that is comfortable is preferred by you water element creatures over too tight-fitting, sophisticated ones.  Think: “Sexy Earth Mama Goddess” in flowy fabrics that metaphorically mirror the fluid nature of water.  You have a weak spot for rich materials that feel good to wear, like silk and cashmere, and enjoy pops of color here and there, even if the majority of your clothes are neutral colors.  Symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions, one never knows which direction your style will take.  Of course, this opens the whole world of fashion to you, depending on the day and your mood.  Go with the flow of what your mood tells you to wear, because you’re at your best when you don’t over-think your outfit…so trust that you are the trendsetter of the entire zodiac…because you truly are.

Your Dream Dress/ Wedding Dress Horoscope:

A Pisces gown should be all-embracing of the bride’s sensitive and compassionate soul.  For you Pisces brides, it’s the stuff of dreams & fairytales: a beautiful ball gown with a poetic bustle and cathedral train, a sweetheart neckline, and a full skirt of taffeta, chiffon or silk organza.   An elaborate, yet refined, romantic gown will do you the justice you desire.   A Grecian-inspired look that is composed of an elegant and modern gown, sheer fabric of the arms, and rich texture on the bust, creates the wondrous illusion you may fancy.

Your wedding dress will be flowing and soft: the kind that is made for dancing, not just standing for pictures.  Ivory and cream will have that earthier vibe that you dig, as opposed to stark white.  Lace and ribbons will give your dress that something special you crave.  Pisces rules the feet, so it is important that you feel lavish in your shoes – perhaps a jeweled stiletto or a gorgeous satin pump.  Pisces is ruled by Neptune, god of the sea.  Like a mythical mermaid, a flowy, feminine princess style with an enchantingly timeless appeal is the gown for you.

A Bride’s Wish List (Part 1) – Aleana’s Bridal Shop

By Jaclyn Ianetti

“Honor, riches, marriage-blessing
Long continuance, and increasing,
Hourly joys be still upon you!”
– William Shakespeare

You found the man of your dreams…the dress of your dreams…had the wedding of your dreams. Now what about the future of your dreams?

Before you start dreaming up future plans, first give out gratitude to the universe for bringing you the things that bring you love & happiness, right here in the “here and now.” There is a measurable benefit to counting your blessings and looking on the bright side. Doing this will be sure to bring you more of your wishes, hopes and dreams to be realized soon in the future! Studies have been done to prove that people are genuinely happier when showing gratitude. So remember that a happy energy and positive outlook attracts positive outcomes!

Wedding day planning has brought you much stress, I’m sure, but give thanks for how wonderful it all turned out to be. “Thank you power” can actually undo the effects of stress that has took its’ toll on you. And aren’t you thankful for all the beauty the wedding day and the days that led up to it, like the first time you ever met your husband, has brought into your life?

Write down the moments that are good in your life and the ones you have recently experienced leading up to your wedding so that you can go back and reflect on them. This can be your little treasure book that holds your happiness…something that you can stare dreamily at each time you visit. It’s a golden repository of all the good stuff from your past that gives you the ability to recognize the small, everyday things that make you happy. Happiness and “thank you power” aren’t about material objects, but rather the moments in your life that have made you feel that life is good.

Whispers of your Heart
Give thanks… to God, your angels, and the universe…for coming together to bring you love in the form of human love. Whether you endured struggles and hardships along the way, a romantic relationship is what satisfies your heart. Your heart received the affection of another person, and your heart is now complete.

Give thanks…for Free will. Free will is the key ingredient to true love. True love cannot exist without a choice: If you were forced to love a person, then love would disappear, and you would be under manipulation. Your free will matched up perfectly with somebody else’s free will. You & your husband have a will that crossed paths and shared its’ desires freely, locking at a center point of reciprocating love.

Give thanks…for an intimate relationship that developed because of your choice and free will, in spite of all the other opportunities that you could have chosen that would have misled you down the wrong path to love.

Give thanks…for a passionate romance… Your channels are unblocked to allow love to flow freely in to enhance your life. Your earthly relationship with your husband is the avenue of expressing and receiving love

Give thanks…for the life of promise you are now living. A promise of unconditional love and acceptance that you and your spouse share together, which is the ultimate treasure above all other things in life.

Grace and remembrance be to you both.”
– William Shakespeare
