A big trend these days is letting the bridesmaids have some choice in terms of their dress style; the reason being that with all those different body types it is hard to find one dress that looks great on everyone. It’s the same thinking with colors; not all colors look great with all skin tones/hair colors. You may find an adorable dress but if you put it in a color that your maid just cannot pull off then she will never even think about re-wearing it. We do have one warning though for those considering mixed colors: it can be more work for the bride to organize. You’ll need to keep an eye on who has chosen what color and decide if you’re OK with some overlap. The result of all of that work, though, is a gorgeous and unique bunch of maids, hopefully in dresses/colors that they can re-wear in the future! Who doesn’t love that?
Let’s face it, weddings take a lot of time and money to plan. As much fun as it is to plan a wedding, wouldn’t it be even better if you knew not only you, but the world, was benefiting from it? OK, a little over dramatic I know but if you plan your wedding to be a little more “green” then that is basically what you’re doing. Not only are you a bride, but a superhero for the world (sans uncomfortable looking leotard, tights and cape)! Want to learn more? Boston’s “Elegantly Green Wedding Showcase” can help you do just that!
This expo is like most you’ve probably been to/heard about, in that there will be tons of amazing wedding vendors at your disposal in one location. However, these vendors have met strict green standards and offer eco-friendly alternatives to the usual wedding fare. There will also be an eco-friendly fashion show, featuring one of our designers, Seams! Harper, the owner and designer, designs gorgeous, green bridal gowns that you can really feel good about. So, you can go see her there and also sample some amazing food and beverages, hear great live music and more. Need I say more?
The 411: The expo is taking place Sunday May 14th from 1-5 PM at the Renaissance Waterfront Hotel in Boston. See the link below to register.

So we checked out Kate Spade’s website and found that she has a whole selection dedicated entirely to weddings!!
Appropriately named “Wedding Belles and Whistles”
The dresses are a little pricey but would be perfect for rehearsal dinners and showers!!
