Women - Clothing Last updated

Becoming a Beloved Bride is so much more than simply purchasing your wedding gown. At Beloved you can expect to find your dream dress, at an affordable price, all while make a difference someone else’s life.

Beloved Couture Bridal strives for brides to walk out with their dress the same day with a lifetime memory and confident that they were able to give back. Joining the beloved family means that you said yes to giving back to a community. It means that you said yes to helping a family struggling as a result of terminal cancer. It means that your investment for your wedding will go far beyond the big day. Shopping for your wedding gown is a once in a lifetime experience you will remember forever.

It is our mission to provide brides with a terrific shopping experience at great prices all while supporting our foundation, Beloved. When purchasing your dream wedding gown from Beloved you are doing more than you believe. All the proceeds are donated to families located in Southern California, where brides have been able to help families affected by terminal cancer across 13 years.

Our Co-Founder Jennifer Miller owned a bridal store and made a deal with best friend, Kerri Mitchell whose mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Kerri could quit her job in the corporate world to work with her, ensuring a paycheck while also being able to take time off to be by her mother’s side. After going through this experience together, the women had an idea: what if there was an organization that assisted the families of terminal cancer patients, easing their financial struggles? Beloved was born and though our shop we are able to help someone in need.

in and out of the wedding dresses, so you want to be sure your underwear isn’t

anything you would feel embarrassed to be seen wearing. We recommend wearing

skin tone undergarments and bring a strapless bra if possible. Shaping

undergarments such as Spanks are also important if that is something you are

interested in, as they will affect the way a dress looks on you.

is like finding the guy, when you know, you can finally stop searching! It may be the

first dress you try on, or the one you revisited several times during your
