In this Q&A series, I sat down with Candice Richardson of Blush Bridal, which is located in Fayetteville, North Carolina. We discussed everything and anything from how she opened her bridal boutique, best tips for brides, and bridal resources for women of color. Also check out Blush Bridal’s variety of gorgeous gowns, I had so much fun taking these photos around her boutique. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Tell me the history of Blush Bridal – how did an idea turn into an actual business and boutique?
“Having been brides ourselves once upon a time, we both felt something important was missing from the bride’s experience: a personal touch. In 2014, we paired Faith’s skills as a business consultant and dress designer and Candice’s background as a business owner to open Blush Bridal in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Funny story – while owning the furniture store, I was taking a QuickBooks class and Faith was the instructor. We just sort of hit it off and from there we both discovered our shared passion for business… bridal. When our website launched our first ordered was out of Paris, France. We were so excited!”
I wanted to share these cute and funny Instagram story templates for highlights on my blog because I have had SO much fun making them. Seriously, my husband has to physically take my laptop away from me because I can’t stop designing and creating these templates. I have quite a few more ideas, so I’ll be updating this post with more templates as I make them. You can always grab the latest Instagram story templates off of my Instagram account, @tayloraube.
How do you use them exactly? Well you just save the image to your phone, fill out your answers and post to your story!

After sharing with your followers see how many direct messages you get. Theses really spark a conversation!
The back detail trend is so fun. As they say business in the front – party in the back! I love this white shirt because in the front it looks like a classic button down, but once I turn around it has a beautiful crisscross detail.
When I first saw the top and bottom of this pink two piece outfit by the Australian label Keepsake, I knew it was love at first site. If my entire spring style could be embodied into one outfit, it would most definitely be this one.
