Dress Dilemma: A One Act Play

BEAUTIFUL BRIDE: I love my girls and I want them to love me too, so I’m looking for a bridesmaid’s dress that doesn’t actually look like a “bridesmaid’s” dress. I want them to feel gorgeous in it and maybe even wear it again!

FABULOUS FLAIR CONSULTANT: That’s our specialty! A past Flair employee even ordered one of our dresses for herself AND she didn’t even wear it to a wedding! Plus, we love to home past season’s samples to wear any and everywhere!

BEAUTIFUL BRIDE: Really?? So what do you recommend for this season? I don’t want my girls looking like every other bridal party out there.

FABULOUS FLAIR CONSULTANT: Well, I’ll let you in on a secret. One shoulder dresses are the next big thing.

BEAUTIFUL BRIDE: (relunctant) But, I need the dress to look good on various body types…

FABULOUS FLAIR CONSULTANT: (interrupts with enthusiasm) Then, one shoulder is perfect! Women want to feel comfortable with some sort of strap, but they don’t want to necessarily compromise the style of the dress. So this is the perfect solution. It’s modern and unique, while still being comfortable on girls of all shapes and sizes.

BEAUTIFUL BRIDE: Thanks Flair (single, tear of happiness falls) you are GENIUS and you SAVED my wedding!!

The End.

OK. So we might be exaggerating just a little bit BUT we do hear such concerns from our brides all the time…
You choose your bridesmaids because they are the your closest friends/family. You obviously want to keep them happy, looking stunning and on stay on everyone’s good side. So do the right thing; choose a dress that is flattering, stylish, and comfortable!
Flair’s pick: the new one-shoulder look.

Some other useful tips…
-Wedding binders are key!
-Get your girls ready and give them a deadline for measurements.
-Now that bikini season is near over, fall is the ideal time to test out your potential menu items.
-Spend the upcoming chilly days cozied up with your honey and finally hammer out the seating chart.
-Don’t forget moms! Start helping your mom and future mother in law coordinate outfits for the big day.
-Once you have your wedding colors, get cracking on your floral arrangements.

Through thick & thin…through lace & tulle.

It’s safe to say that after working with brides and their bridesmaids for months, a relationship is born, one that is often friendly and definitely good natured from beginning to end.

It’s a pleasure helping women find the perfect bridal gown, the most adorable dresses, and that right on the money color.

Flair is here for brides, even through the freak-outs about dress sizes and trying to find the proper height heel.

When sanity has been regained and after all is said and done, the inevitable cherry on top is seeing your gorgeous fun wedding photographs.

To be quite honest, to me, that’s the best part of the job. So please share them! It makes everything all the more rewarding!

Congratulations to our Flair brides!

wedding flair: the little touches.

There is just something so cute and sweet about the pearl buttons and tiny bows of our flower girls. Along with the small handsome tie of our ring bearer, these little people are the perfect icing on our wedding cake.

Bridal Shoot: Lilia Photography and San Francisco City Club

Last year while bridal blog surfing, I came across the wonderful photo blog of SF wedding photographer Lilia Ahner. I instantly fell in love with her work. A few email exchanges and a couple of meetings later, we decided to take on a fabulous bridal project. Along with our all-star team, we put together a vintage glam photo shoot at the timeless San Francisco City Club.
