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!
