Stuff We Love!! Long Dresses…….These dresses are long on style ;)

Floor length dresses have always been a point of debate in the bridesmaids’ community. When and where are they appropriate? Are my bridesmaids going to be comfortable in them? Do I have to pay an arm and a leg to get a gorgeous, long dress? Your friends at Flair are here to answer these hard hitting questions and find the floor length dress of your dreams!
  Dessy Collection is a great place to start looking for moderately priced floor length gowns. Most are in the low $200 area, some even under $200 (especially if you have a large number of bridesmaids – the group discount is your friend)!
   
Style #2829                              Style #6613                            Style #2832
 Plus, their flowy styles are perfect even for a summer wedding. Some brides think that if they are getting married in the summer that they have to get short bridesmaids’ dresses and that’s just not the case! You can find light, breezy floor length gowns that scream summer! Plus, Dessy’s newer styles have a blousy look that mimic our fav summer maxi dresses, making them easier to re-wear in the future (c’mon, with a jean jacket over it you’d totally wear it out to dinner)!

Above we have Jenny Yoo’s chiffon gowns and they are amazing too. The styles are elegant and timeless, perfect for a more formal, evening affair. Even better, the chiffon is so lightweight that all of your girls will feel comfortable in their gowns all night long! In general, bridesmaids tell us that they appreciate a long gown. It’s a change of pace and you don’t have to worry as much about the shoes since they are hidden. So, if you’re leaning towards long, go for it! We can help you find you a gorgeous gown for any occasion! 
Tell us what you are loving!!

Time flies while you’re having fun at Flair!!

 
Let’s face it, an hour goes by far faster than anyone expects. While we all wish that time didn’t fly, such is the reality of the wedding world. With that in mind, here is a tip to make the most of your hour with us! In order to prepare for your appointment, it’s important to prioritize.
 
Sit down, look at our designers’ websites, and really consider what you want most for your bridal party. Is it the color? The cut? The length? Do you want all of the girls in the same dress? Or would you like them to have options? If you figure out which one of these is at the top your list, then we can lead you to the designer, or the dress, that best fits your vision. We’re here to help you. We aren’t satisfied until you are, but we aren’t mind readers (although we try REALLY hard to be). Be sure to tell us what means the most to you, and we’ll do our best to make all of your wedding dreams come true.”

Finding the RIGHT dress….for all the ladies!

There are days when I really love my job (almost every day – but no one bats 1000!). I love it most when I can tell I’ve really helped a fab bride get the dresses of her dreams (and relatively hassle-free). Brides tell us all of the time that the bridesmaids’ dresses are one of the most stressful parts of their wedding planning process. You’re considering so many different people; their likes and dislike, and not to mention their different body types.
Last week I had a gorgeous bride come in looking for a long dress that would suit all 8 of her bridesmaids. 
No small task! She was lucky in one aspect; most of her bridesmaids are around the same size (give or take a size or two) which is very rare! She was looking for a young, fun dress that wouldn’t break the bank and that came in a really deep purple. After an hour of pouring over color books and trying on dresses we came across a winner. It was a unique mermaid gown with lots of rouching and a sweetheart top, and it came in a concord color that was darker than all of our other designers’ purples. Plus, the price was amazing for a long dress! Another happy Flair bride!
What can you take away from this success story? Know what your priorities are! For this bride it ended up being the color. Most designers have an eggplant purple that is dark, but she was looking for that one shade darker. Knowing the colors of our designers as well as I do I was able to direct her to the Dessy Collection and their gorgeous concord colored satin. It can be overwhelming to try and find everything you’re looking for in 1 dress so know what’s most important to you (color, style, price, etc.) and go from there!
Cheers!

Stuff We Love: Customizable Jewelry by Amelia Rose!!

We have always loved Amelia Rose Design. Her jewelry is locally made and so thoughtfully done, it makes the perfect gift for anyone! Bridesmaids’ jewelry can be tricky though. Finding the right design in the right colors can be time-consuming. 
Let’s face it, when you’re planning a wedding you have a lot on your plate and adding endless hours of searching for the perfect jewelry is not something most brides want or have the luxury to do. Have no fear, Amelia has made it easy for you!
To start, she has three great pieces (2 pairs of earrings and one necklace) to choose from. Once you’ve made your selection there are three metals to choose from to set your jewelry. There’s gold, sterling silver and gold filled (a less expensive option for gold lovers). Finally, you can choose from 14 different colored jewels/crystals to finish the look. It’s so simple, and every bride should be able to find something that she loves! Check it out below:

Spotlight on one of our favorite brides……Melanie!

We are asking our favorite brides to share their wedding planning experiences with us!
One of our favorite brides, Melanie, was married last October.  A classic and elegant affair, Melanie wore Coren Moore’s Francie Bridal Gown with lace overlay and an Almond Sash.   
   Her bridesmaids wore Dessy’s adorable Style 2750 in Navy.  The men wore matching Almond ties by Coren Moore.
How was your bridal shopping experience at Flair?    
I went into Flair looking for bridesmaid dresses and was surprised to see that you carried bridal.  I had extra time during my appointment and took at look at your collection of bridal gowns.  There was very little pressure to look and to buy – I just fell into it and then found my dress, Coren Moore’s Francie with the lace overlay.  

Did you have an idea of what type of bridesmaid dress you wanted for your girls?  
 I wanted something that wasn’t strapless, that was lightweight and that would look great on everyone.  The Dessy dress that I found met that criteria, it had a higher neck, and I just knew it would look great on my girls.  It fit their personalities, their styles and my wedding. 

Tell me about your experience at Flair.  
 I had a great connection with the store.  It was easy to find things that I liked.  It was a manageable selection of bridesmaid dresses.  I didn’t feel overwhelmed with choices.  I was very impressed by the service.  Lindsay was quick to respond to all of my questions.  When I picked up our bridesmaid dresses, she was super organized.  All the dresses had each bridesmaids name on it.  Lindsay was so efficient, she was great!  I felt very confident every step of the way. 
Your bridal selection is right on the spot with the quality, price and value of the bridal gown.  Your gowns were truly under $2500, and I appreciated that I got such a quality gown at an affordable price.
Any tips for brides when looking for their bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses?  
  •  Definitely do your research.  Get an idea of the basics – whether or not you want a short or long bridesmaid dress, type of fabric and color scheme.  
  • Be open – listen to the consultant’s ideas.  This is for the most part a bride’s first time – let the consultant guide you.  
  • Make sure to have realistic expectations – if nothing isn’t exactly what you want, be flexible and willing to try something new.    
  • Take along 1 Bridesmaid that way you do not get conflicting opinions and it makes the process less stressful. 
Lastly, planning a wedding is stressful and super crazy but everything will turn out.  Stay open and trust the people who are helping you!
 We love hearing about your experience at Flair and would love to put the SPOTLIGHT on you and your big day!

Wear it again…B &W style!

You are probably wondering why we did our “Wear it again” in black and white…..well there is an easy explanation for that!  It’s winter and I am white as a ghost! 
Oh, and I thought it might look cool!

More importantly, Jenny Yoo’s 2011 Collection came in this week and we are ECSTATIC! Her new collection is absolutely beautiful. This “Farrah” dress, shown in Black Crinkle Chiffon, is no exception. We paired it with a cute BM belt by A.B. Ellie with some adorable BLING!
This dress is so elegant and fun, it was easy to wear again!  We added a cute tweed jacket, pumps, gray tights, and a Parisian slouchy hat!  Perfect for a nice stroll in the city(when and if all the snow melts!) or a night on the town with girlfriends!

Until next time
XOXO

Stuff We Love-Longest Winter Ever Edition!

Winter…what a drag!  
We know, there is sooooooooo much snow and enormous lake size puddles out there. We are going crazy!  We are praying for spring to come soon.
So, we know it really has nothing to do with the Bridal/Bridesmaid industry, but we thought we would give a little shout out to our fav winter gear!
HUNTER BOOTS!
Apparently, this is what our owner Christine stumbled upon when she came into the store last week and thought it was hilarious! We do love our Hunter boots and obviously we all love them in BLACK!  So, enough said…winter without a pair of these beauties is a cold and sad winter indeed! Quick go buy a pair…..before the next storm!
XOXO
Brooke, Lindsay & Stacey
