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!

Wedding Decals Can Make Your Day Special

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. These fun bits aren’t something that you may think of acquiring for your wedding, especially when you have so many other details that need attention. 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.

After all, if your feet hurt, how can you produce that dazzling smile that you’ll see for the rest of your life in photos of the big day?

Similarly, if open-toed sandals aren’t your thing, go with a simple pump. The important thing to remember is that your shoes express your own individual style. Our expert consultants are here to help. Make sure you have your feet measured properly and keep in mind that sizes vary amongst manufacturers. It’s not unusual to need a larger size for comfort.

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.

Choosing the Perfect Flower Girl Dress

Jan 10, 2014

Many large weddings, particularly those here in the south, have flower girls as part of the bridal party. Including the youngest member of your family or your fiancé’s family is a charming way to remember your special day. Often, flower girls are dressed as mini versions of the bride, in a white or ivory dress, with a contrasting sash that matches the color of the bridesmaid’s dresses.

Here at Dimitra Designs, we can help you find the ideal flower girl dress for your wedding, and ensure that both you and the youngest member of your bridal party will look beautiful and be happy. When choosing a flower girl dress, make sure that you stay with the style of the wedding. If you have a formal wedding, your flower girl’s dress also needs to be formal. In addition to keeping with your color theme, make sure the dress you choose is not too long, is comfortable and wrinkle-resistant.

Remember that little girls do not stay put very long and you want to keep her looking nice as long as possible. Make sure that both your flower girl and her parents like the dress, as this little detail will go a long way on your wedding day.
