Roz la Kelin Glamour Plus Wedding Gowns

Apr 14, 2014

As any plus size woman understands very well, there are ultimately two types of plus size clothing. First, you have plus size clothes that were made specifically for a fuller figure. Every angle is considered and fits and flatters your curves beautifully. Then, there are the plus size clothes that seem as though they were simply sized up from a smaller size. If it’s a top, the overall length and sleeves are too short. If it’s a pair of pants, they usually don’t have enough room in the hips or rear. And if it’s a dress, everything can be completely out of whack! Luckily, Roz la Kelin Glamour Plus size wedding dresses are part of the first type of plus size clothing, with each dress impeccably designed for a fuller figure. The result is nothing short of spectacular, making this deserving designer a top selection for many plus size brides.

When you browse our collection of Roz la Kelin Glamour Plus size wedding dresses, you’ll quickly notice that getting the right fit wasn’t the only task in the designer’s mind. Roz la Kelin dresses are truly breathtaking in their beauty; unique without straying too far from classic style, and of an obviously high quality in every way. There isn’t a single gown in her collection that I wouldn’t be more than happy to wear myself, and I’m confident you’ll agree!

These designs are at once classic and modern; fiercely feminine with a grown-up grandeur. They combine many elements while looking chic, pretty and polished – never the least bit over-the-top or ‘busy’. Many designs also have elements that can be tricky to find, including lace sleeves. Rather than looking like an addition to the dress, Roz la Kelin makes the sleeves an integral aspect of the design, giving your arms coverage that is light, ladylike, and fuss-free, unlike a shawl, jacket or bolero can be. Browse our collection today and see for yourself! We hope you love them as much as we do.

Lovely, Ladylike, Lace Mother of the Bride Dresses

Mar 31, 2014

Montage by Mon Cheri 113919Caterina by Jordan 9005We’ve dedicated all our blog posts this month to mother of the bride dresses, starting with a spotlight on modern, moving next to plus size, and being sure to take a stop at sexy. There is a natural overlap for all of these categories and more, but as each is a popular criteria unto itself we wanted to give them all their due attention. As for which mother of the bride dresses to focus on in this final post for March, we tossed around a few ideas before the light bulb over ‘lace’ lit up!

We’ve highlighted a few lace mother of the bride dresses already, but there are many more that are also worthy of your consideration. And here are two of them…

Caterina by Jordan 9005: This showstopping gown is simply stunning in every of many available colors. Elegant, refined, grand glamour – this is the lace dress others are measured against! Available in sizes 0 – 34, this trumpet skirt gown is a flattering choice for many figures. Femininity is key from the sweetheart neckline to the removable lace wrap. In fact, it’s the wrap that many women cite as their primary reason for choosing this dress. While it looks flawless without the wrap, it looks just as flawless with it. You would never guess it wasn’t a permanent detail of the dress unless you saw someone take it off!

Montage by Mon Cheri 113919: Sometimes when you’re looking for unique beauty, you just have to take things in from a new angle! Asymmetrical tiers of beautiful blue lace are dramatically defined against a nude underlay. The enchanting effect of the angles is enhanced even further with a single cap sleeve. Romantic, fashionable, and far from the ordinary, this vintage-inspired mother of the bride dress is a perfect 10, like you!

Mar 28, 2014

Age is nothing but a number, and beauty doesn’t go away when our birthday cake hits a certain number of candles. Showcase those curves and your modern style with sexy mother of the bride dresses that are both eye-catching and appropriate for the special occasion. Here are two of our top picks…

High Slit Mori Lee Dress (70924): What do you get when you combine floral black lace, sparkling sequins, sheer sleeves, and a slit to showcase legs that don’t quit? You get one of our sexiest mother of the bride dresses from the VM Mori Lee collection! This slim fit gown is unstoppably gorgeous, and something you’ll actually be able to wear again. In fact, you might want to book that cruise right now or make dinner reservations at the restaurant you’ve been wanting to check out for years, because you’re going to want to wear this again, and soon!

Pretty, Polished, Plus Size Mother of the Bride Dresses

Mar 20, 2014

This month on the blog we’re placing a special focus on our extensive collection of mother of the bride dresses. We have quite a smashing selection, and we don’t always give them the attention they deserve! In our first post, Marvelous, Magnificently Modern Mother of the Bride Dresses, we highlighted two of our favorite statement dresses, one with oversized ruffles, the other a siren red. In this post we’ll be touching on two of our favorite plus size mother of the bride dresses. But for the record, both of those featured in the previous post are available in plus sizes as well! So if you have your heart set on one of the dresses from last week’s post, they are available in sizes 2 – 26 and 4 – 26. Liked those but looking for something different? How about one of these fashionable designs…

All Wrapped Up with a Bow: Among the most popular trends today in everyday fashion and formal fashion is bows. This Alyce mother of the bride dress showcases the bow trend in a very sophisticated, ladylike way. It’s easy for bows to look a bit too casual, but Alyce elevates the bow to a gorgeous grown-up level with the perfect size, placement, and unexpected angle. The sheer sleeves are ideal for women who want some cover for their arms, but not the heaviness in feel and appearance that an opaque sleeve brings. Stylish and refined, this affordable mother of the bride dress is perfect for women of all shapes and sizes, and is available in sizes 4 – 32.

Lovely in Lace: The lace trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and we couldn’t be happier! Lace provides the ultimate in feminine elegance, keeping you covered but allowing your skin to shine through. For those of us that like to keep our arms covered, but don’t want to fuss with a jacket or wear a heavy sleeve, lace meets us in the middle keeping us and our look breathable and beautiful. I can’t express enough how much I love this lace mother of the bride dress by VM Mori Lee. On one hand, there is a lot going on here, with a v-neck front and v-back, a wide ruched waistband, a layered skirt, a lace top and sleeves, and a beaded brooch. On the other hand, it couldn’t come together more elegantly or flawlessly. When the design is right, you can have it all, in sizes 2 – 26.

Marvelous, Magnificently Modern Mother of the Bride Dresses

Mar 13, 2014

Many mothers spend so much time helping their daughters find their dream wedding dress that they forget they too will need something special for the occasion! Unfortunately, many bridal shops who offer mother of the bride dresses bring the same tired styles year after year. The bride should always take center stage at her wedding, and there’s no question that her gown is the most important of the day, but that doesn’t mean that the most special woman in her life shouldn’t look her beautiful best as well.

At Dimitra Designs, we offer mother of the bride dresses that are elegant, flattering, and fitting of such a momentous occasion. Unlike many of the dated designs you’ll find elsewhere, ours are fashionably modern and ready to shine in photographs and on the dance floor! This month we will be bringing the spotlight to some of our favorite mother of the bride and mother of the groom dresses, starting with these two…

Lady in Red: This stunning dress from Montage by Mon Cheri is for lovely ladies who aren’t afraid to shine! The removable bolero jacket is perfect for slipping on when the wind or air conditioning kicks up, and also adds a level of modesty that doesn’t interfere with the flattering, feminine lines. A two-piece fashioned from silk shantung, the brooch adds a touch of sparkle that draws the eye in at the gathered waist. Slimming and sophisticated, this mother of the bride dress is one to say ‘yes’ to!

Radiant in Ruffles: Allover ruching makes this VM Mori Lee mother of the bride dress sensationally flattering, but the true star of the show is the elaborate, artistic, oversized ruffles. A chic mermaid style that is fitted to follow your every curve, this grand gown is bursting with a bold and beautiful ruffle detail front and back. Elegant and enchanting was never so exciting!

Feb 27, 2014

Wedding DecalsWhen you get married, you want to announce your happiness to the world. That’s why most couples include various types of table favors and mementos to give to their guests. You may want to keep something, however, for yourself. Wedding decals are the ideal way to tell the world about your love and your special day.

However, at Dimitra Designs, we have a few wedding decals for announcing your marriage that you can place on the rear window of your limo, on your own car, or anyplace with a smooth surface.

One of the great things about acquiring a wedding decal at Dimitra Designs is that we have these items right here on our website and at our Greenville, South Carolina location. With a great graphic, such as our “Just Married” decal, you can make the most of your special day without spending a lot of money or time. Our removable decals are great for placement on vehicles, as well as other clear surfaces where you may want to broadcast your event.

Celebrating a February Wedding with Amethyst Accents

Jan 24, 2014

February is the month of the Amethyst, a delicate purple semi-precious gemstone that has long been valued for its beauty and splendor, particularly among royalty. If you’re having a wedding this February and are looking for an appropriately stunning theme, you can’t go wrong with this regal color! Here are a few of the ways you can incorporate amethyst into your wedding. 

Flowers:

No wedding is complete without flowers, and there is a large array of choices for your amethyst-themed wedding. Lively asters, supple purple roses, succulent hyacinths, and luscious lilies are just a few of examples of these living gems. However, you don’t have to be restricted to just using them in your wedding ceremony or reception decor. Think outside of the box and consider using amethyst-colored flowers in your wedding bouquet, bridesmaid dresses and even in the petals that the flower girl will sprinkled upon the aisle.

Choosing the right dresses for yourself and your supporting cast can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. One selection that’s sure to turn heads is the exquisite Sophia Tolli Y2713 wedding gown! Of course, you can’t forget the accessories. A pair of long pear drop chandelier evening earrings will help accentuate the look, especially when paired with amethyst hair accessories. With everyone wearing their February best, your big day will look like an imperial affair.
