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 DressFirst.com 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.

What's your ultimate wedding dress?

October 6, 2010

I feel like nowadays people are taking chances with their bridal gowns. They aren’t picking traditional styles like they used to be. Long, beaded, embellished. They are fun, flirty, and most importantly shows off the Bride’s style. These gowns below range from casual and fun to elegant and graceful. It’s really great to see designers make such a wide variety of styles for Brides to choose from and with so many choices, there’s no doubt that you’ll be able to find something to fit you personality from you wedding. If you’ve been married or are getting married, tell us about your wedding dress! Was it long? short? white? off-white? Post it in the comments! Thanks!

Wedding Season: It's All About the Bride (and the dress!)

June 9, 2010

So far, this year, I’ve been invited to 4 weddings. I went to the first last weekend in Jacksonville, Florida and this weekend, I’ll be heading to Sacaramento for Wedding #2. I love weddings because as much as I love to celebrate the party and see my friends/family, I love the fashions. The wedding is all about the brides and their beautiful wedding dresses.

From sweetheart neckline, to halter tops or cap sleeves, wedding dresses are a way for the bride to express herself while showing off the style that she looks best in. I am a sucker for sweetheart necklines and classic styles with a little bit of beading and bling. I loved Carrie’s dress in Sex and the City, but let’s face it – not many of us could pull that off!

What do you think about the dresses below? I LOVE the first one! What is your favorite style of wedding dress? Do you go to weddings for the party or fashion? And last but not least, if you’ve got a crazy wedding story to tell, leave it in the comments!

what to wear to a wedding?

September 25, 2008

I am attending the 2nd wedding this year and I literally have no dresses to wear. The first wedding I went to, I dug up and old $50 dress from a college party and wore that. I would wear the same dress again, only its the SAME people at this upcoming wedding – the band is even the same!

I saw this beautiful dress at White House Black Market (I love that store) but it’s about $200. WOW. Way too much for my casual self, who never wears dresses.

Here’s my question. If I buy this, is it something that’s classic enough that I can keep for years? And i mean YEARS? Or will it go out of style? I’d rather invest in something that I know I can wear over and over. Any ideas?
