Trending Wedding Glam: Pageant Dresses Can Turn a Bridesmaids Dress Into a Glamorous Look

Jul 14, 2015

Many women admire the glamorous look of metallic or sequined pageant dresses, but this glitzy style isn’t reserved for just pageants. In recent years, creative brides are taking a tip from the pageant circuit and turning pageant-style dresses into bridesmaids dresses with a bit of added flair. It may seem intimidating, but by keeping the rest of your wedding simple and opting for gold or silver sparkling gowns, you can make your bridesmaids dresses really shine.

Start by taking into consideration your own wedding dress. Your ‘maids dresses should coordinate with yours, not the other way around, so choose a sparkling bridesmaids dress based on how decorated your dress is. If your dress is fairly simple but you still want to add a burst of sparkle and glamour, something elegant like a white dress with gold accents at the bodice makes a great choice for your bridesmaids. If your dress is more extravagant, you can choose something with all-over sparkles without distracting from yourself. Vienna has a great selection of dresses in classic shapes with modern embellishments your bridesmaids are sure to love.

When choosing bridesmaids dresses, you should also take into consideration that not every woman has the same body type. Pick something universally flattering, like a dress with a cinched waist and slightly flared skirt to create an hourglass figure. Mac Duggal Royalty has some great options in this style. The simple shape will also make glitzy sequins even more noticeable.

If you want to create a truly unique or bohemian look at your wedding, you can also let your bridesmaids choose dresses that are coordinating, but not exactly the same. Give them instructions to pick gowns in the same shade of cream or with silver accents against a neutral background to make sure that the dresses don’t clash. If you want your girls wearing color, choosing dresses from a single designer can ensure the colors are similar shades. Pair options like a long-sleeved dress, high-necked dress and sleeveless dress together to create a look that makes each bridesmaid stands out, but still looks perfectly put together. By choosing dresses that all have decorative sequins or beading, you can also commit to the glamorous look in a refined, understated way.

Undergarment Must-Haves for Pageants

Jun 30, 2015

You want to look flawless from your head to your toes on pageant day, and that entails perfectly styled hair, a well-fitting dress and even the proper undergarments underneath it all. You can’t just wear your typical bra and underwear under your gown, but you also want to look confident and feel comfortable while you’re on stage. Here are a few of the must-have undergarment products that will help any pageant competitor create a smooth and seamless finish on the big day.

First, a body shaper in a style that suits your formal dress is an essential for any woman. These undergarments help create a fluid look and create a flattering base beneath even the most form-fitting dresses. Items like our Boxer Body Shaper or our two-piece Boxer Panty Shaper are just two great types of undergarments that come in various styles to suit your specific needs.

Next, ensure an equally flawless look during the swimsuit competition by wearing undergarments to help cover your most sensitive areas and keep everything securely in place while on stage. Undergarment Pads for Swimsuits can be tucked discreetly into your bathing suit bottoms to prevent the crowd from seeing too much, while Self-Adhesive Invisible Silicone Nipple Covers keep your top portion looking smooth and totally covered. You’ll be able to prevent an embarrassing slip-up – or an embarrassing nip-slip – with these essential undergarment items.

For younger girls, there is a whole different set of undergarment must-haves. Children’s pageant competitors should be concerned with adding volume to formal gowns and keeping their skirts looking full. Our Children’s Hoop Slip and Regular Children’s Long Slip come in two lengths depending on her style of dress, and they’re comfortable enough that your little beauty queen won’t feel itchy or stifled on stage.

With the proper undergarments, you’ll feel ready to take on even the most competitive pageant with confidence and style.

Aug 7, 2014

Pageants are a fun way to show off the pageant dresses for juniors that you have purchased just for the occasion.pageantdesigns-blog5-junjul2014Unfortunately, many girls are frightened of speaking while they are on stage during a competition. Stuttering, freezing up or generally appearing to be nervous can cost you the competition, and knowing that your performance impacts your ability to win can make you even more nervous. Overcoming this fear before a pageant is the best technique for doing your best. Here are some tips so you can start to overcome your fear of public speaking before your next event!

  • Decide what you are going to talk about before pageant day arrives. If you do not know the topic beforehand, be prepared to speak on a range of popular pageant topics.
  • Use relaxation techniques right before you go on stage. Counting slowly is a good way to shift your focus off of the task at hand.
  • Focus on the message that you are trying to convey during the pageant. If you find yourself becoming nervous, focus on why you are passionate about participating in pageants.
  • Never apologize when you are on stage. The audience is unlikely to notice a small amount of nervousness, and apologizing just brings attention to it.

  • Practice walking in your shoes well before the day of the pageant. This is especially important if you are going to be wearing heels that are higher than you are used to wearing.
  • Walk in your dress at home before the pageant. Use music to help you keep the right pace as you stroll up and down your hall.

Girls and parents who are getting ready for their first pageant are sure to feel the nervous butterflies of excitement. Pageants can be a lot of fun, but the anxiety associated with trying something new can be overwhelming.

Buying little girls pageant dresses is the first step to a successful pageant experience, but what do you do after that? Here are some useful tips.

  • Toddler beauty pageants can be very competitive. Make sure you have several little girls pageant dresses in the latest styles to ensure that your child looks her best for every portion of the competition.
