How to Plan a Dream Day With Mom and her Pick of Mother of the Bride Gowns

Nov 30, 2011

What can you get the mother who has everything? The tender, unparalelled pleasure at seeing you married could be all she’s ever asked for, so finding the perfect gift can be oh-so-difficult.  So how can you find a gift that surprises and cheers her up? Plan a special day to let Mom have her pick of mother of the bride gowns for your dream day. It’s the day all her dreams come true as well – seeing her girl get married – so let her dress the way she wants and be a part of this process by picking together.

What to plan for this dream day:

  • A trip to the spa.
  • Get your colors done by a specialist.
  • A trip to boutiques far out of your price range and then ones that are, like Dimitra Designs!

Then in the weeks right before the wedding, you can have your Maid of Honor and Mother come along for your prep day for a trip to get your hair recolored, nails done, facials and practice make up to test your colors. A bond with your mom is a special thing that can’t be replaced. Make your day with your mom last forever.

How to Get Them in Your Pick of Pretty Maids Bridesmaid Dresses

Nov 14, 2011

How are your favorite bridesmaids going to feel when you stick them in your favorite color? Well they may not say it out loud, but the resentment is still there! While the big compromises are with your soon-to-be, theses gals you love so much and have asked to be a part of your big day deserve a little compromise as well. Sometimes you fall right in love with a set of bridesmaids dresses – like when you find the Pretty Maids Bridesmaid dresses that match your wedding dress perfectly!

You can however sway them over to your opinion – using these tricks.

  • Compromise – if there’s a style of dress that you’re dead set on, let them pick their own shades. Mixing up your bridesmaid dress colors are all the rage now too! If you’re amorous about a certain shade, let them help you pick the exact cut and style – maybe they can each have their own so everyone is happy!
  • Explain – let them know why you want you want this exact dress. Don’t just say you want it because it’ll make you look best. Try saying, “I have this picture in my mind of us looking like royalty together, when we pair these dresses with my bridal dress it matches all my dreams perfectly!”

Use your bride to be powers for good – and get the Pretty Maids Bridesmaid dresses that are in your sights! What sort of compromises do you make with your bridesmaids?

How to Match Your Dreams to Your Wedding Dress

Nov 3, 2011

Where does your wedding inspiration come from? Your mother’s wedding? Magazines and flyers? Certainly it’s not the many bridal shows that inspire your wedding, these showcases just show you the practical ways that your dreams can be achieved. It’s the dreams that you’ve had for years, the ones you didn’t remember having and the ones you’d forgetten, which inspire your wedding dreams.Allure collection mermaid wedding dress

There are so many magical dreams from Disney and other classic movies that inspire a wedding.

• Does the scene in Beauty and the Beast when Belle wears her golden ballroom dress to dance with the Prince for the first time as a real man always tug at your heart? Then a ballroom style couture wedding gown will be the one for you!

• Maybe you’ve gone from the safe seas to dry land all for your man, just like the Little Mermaid. You’ll definitely love the fashion forward style of the Allure collection mermaid wedding dress, or any mermaid style dress!

• Perhaps Disney wasn’t thing for you, the real classics like An Affair to Remember and Casablanca gave life to your wedding dreams. That’s when you call upon the beauty of the Casablanca wedding dress styles, a classic wedding gown for a beautiful bride.

Just wish upon a star, and all your dreams, including finding the wedding dress of your dreams will come true!
