It's Almost Spring - How About Some Pink?

by Jenny Bryde 12. March 2014 01:11

We are days away from officially saying goodbye to Winter, and if Mother Nature didn't take the hint from all of our griping, herhaps she will adhere to the official calendar.  Looking foward to spring has me focusing around pretty pastels and in particular, pink.  So many shades that are complimentary to so many skin tones!  This week I'm drawn to this color, so I thought we'd take a tour of some fabulous places to find infinite choices of pink bridesmaid dresses.

 

First up - Nordsdrom who is featuring several key colors this season, one of which is "blush".  

 

 

Next up is one of my favorite places to shop for pretty dresses that double as great bridesmaid dresses - JCrew.  Check out their wide selection of styles and hues!

 

 

 

And last but not least is a great go to for wedding frocks - David's Bridal.  They have a huge array of colors and styles for your selection, so check out their pink!

 

 

So whether you're on team pink with me or prefer team green, blue, yellow, or orange, I hope the warmer weather around the corner inspires you to go dress shopping with your bridesmaids!  Happy hunting!

My Favorite Dress Designers - Featuring Carolina Herrera

by Jenny Bryde 17. August 2013 16:49

I must not play favorites, I must not play favorites, I must not play favorites.  

Aaah!  I just can't help myself!  When it comes to wedding fashion, certain designers just catch your eye.  I thought it might be fun to feature a few of the best of the best of the best of the best and introduce you to some wedding dress droolworthy designers.  

First of my list of faves would half to be Venezuelan designer Carolina Herrera whose client list includes Renee Zelwegger and Jackie Onasis.  Not too shabby, but name dropping aside, her work speaks for itself.  Her gowns are classic, romantic, feminine, and seem to work well on any figure.  And while her dresses range from the multiple thousands to the multiple multiple thousands, I think they are still worth a peek!

Here are a list of some of my favorite Herrrera dresses:

Hot Site - ModCloth.com - Dresses for your Maids!

by Jenny Bryde 26. November 2011 14:53

Today I was doing my usually busywork on the computer when I stumbled upon a rad site called Modcloth.com.  Maybe I've been living under a rock.  Maybe I've been too wrapped up in Thanksgiving.  Either way, I've been totally missing out on awesome dress deals from this site.  As your blogger, I daresay it behooves me to ensure that all you who are planning a wedding and picking out bridesmaid dresses and what not get to this site immediately to see the numerous dresses they have for any color palette.  The dresses are AWESOME!  Each one is unique and a refreshing spin off of the tried and true selection that you might find elsewhere.  The best part is, that the dresses are totally reasonable!  Most of the frocks are under $100, and some are on sale right now for as little as $25!  Ladies, start your engines!

I thought it would be fun to show off a selection that I picked out from the hundreds of dresses available on the site when I searched for "red dress".  How much fun would it be to get your gals to don these duds:

 

And it doesn't stop at red!  This site has everything from blush to bashful.  I love how imaginative the designs are and how they would totally work as bridesmaid dresses AND be awesome deals!  PS - They have a sale on many of their dresses right now that takes of 50% through tomorrow night, so get shopping!

Fun Flower Girl Dresses!

by Jenny Bryde 5. June 2011 07:27

Let's face it, we brides can be a tad narcisistic.  We tend to want all the attention directed towards us and all the details we put into our special day...  But I don't think there's a bride out there who wouldn't give up a bit of the lime light for an adorable flower girl sporting a fancy little dress and a killer smile?  While not everyone ends up having a flower girl or two, for those of us who do, here are some pictures to hopefully inspire the hunt for the little girls in your life!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have to say my favorite is the little girl in the cowboy boots...probably because that's what I would have chosen for myself at that age.  :)  Also, I wish it was age appropriate to wear ruffled  tutus and flower crowns...
