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.

Bracelets are the perfect accessory.

November 3, 2010

I am going to be posting a lot about accessories in the next couple weeks because I’m attending a wedding.. the first one that I’m actually in (doing a reading) in a couple weeks, and of course, my outfit has to be perfect. I’ve 2 perfect dresses, which I’ve posted previously, and all I need are some accessories to complement the dress. ShopNBC has some really great bracelets – many of which would fit the occasion, however this one is my favorite. This sterling silver bracelet has pearls that would match with the pearls on the dress. I posted it in the peacock color, because the white, which is the one that would match the best, didn’t show up very well in photos. And as good luck would have it, it’s on sale!

If anyone has any bracelets or any other accessory that would fit with the dresses, let me know!

Badgely Mischka Platinum Label Navy Dress

November 2, 2010

I am in a wedding in a few weeks and had been pining over the dilemma of NO DRESS! I wanted to find something long and elegant, yet that matched with the “fall colors” that everyone else was wearing. My boyfriend’s kind mom sent me this amazing dress by Badgely Mischka. Now, I, for one, don’t own really any designer dresses. In fact, I can hardly say “Badgley Mischka” without sounding slightly drunk. However, this dress looks amazing. I’m having a tailor take it in a couple sizes since it needs to fit perfectly (and was slightly large when I received it). Any accessories that you think might go with this? Send ’em my way!

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!

Tadashi Ruched Matte Jersey Dress.

October 1, 2010

So as you all know I am a sucker for dresses. This one so happens to be a Tadashi dress which I am currently in love with. No, I haven’t tried it on yet, but it looks so beautiful that I’ve been admiring via the web. The ruching is all in the right places and the fabric falls so freely, yet is snug enough. Perfect for a wedding, huh? The problem is the $300 price tag. Looks like I might have to try eBay…

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.

What are some of your suggestions for bridesmaid dresses? Have you ever been a bridesmaid – what was your most/least favorite part about your dress? Leave your answers in the comments!

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!
