Wedding Dresses…. So many styles to choose from!

August 5, 2013

T-minus 5 days until I am officially in my first wedding… as a bridesmaid. Yep, my best friend is getting married. It got me thinking – when you plan a wedding, where do you even BEGIN to start searching for a wedding dress? Bridal magazine covers litter the aisles of Barnes and Noble and the grocery store, but I never stop to look or even give it a glance. I guess that’s probably because I’m so far from marriage. Anyway, back to my point. I spent some time looking up different styles on and here’s what I found.

1. Not all dresses are white. Mind blown. Like this one. This dress is actually very elegant and a little vintage-looking if you ask me. It’s a nice style – not really my type, but I know would look great on some people.


2. Some wedding dresses look like ballet recital outfits. Short. Sweet. Great for dancing in, but not traditional at all. I do like the skirt on this… This is probably something I’d want for a reception. And the best part is you could probably wear it again!Image

3. Some dresses make you feel like a princess. Now this is something that I could get behind. I love this dress because it’s a little over the top but just perfectly elegant enough. It reminds me of the little figure on top of a wedding cake. If this doesn’t scream wedding, I don’t know what does.




Bridesmaid Dresses: A perfect style for everyone!

September 17, 2010

I have a couple friends who are getting married in the next year and all of them seem to have the same dilemma. You would think location, guest list or cost would be part of the problem, but NO! It’s the bridesmaid dresses. One of the hardest part of finding a bridesmaid dresses is finding a style to fit all kinds of shapes and sizes. And since you’re essentially asking them to pay for it, you should try to find one that they will actually wear again. That’s being a considerate bride, and they will be sure to thank you later for that πŸ™‚

Something casual like this dress above is a great find. Not only is a darker jewel-toned color great for most skin tones, but it’s classy and has a touch of decoration. Plus it comes in an array of colors!

This dress above is more of a flirty style and the cut is also great for most body types. Not to mention the color. I love this red. It’s so bright and vibrant! And a good thing about this color is that it’s great for both summer and fall weddings.
