We love to pop in to our Featured Artists’ shops and see what’s new. And with spring right around the corner, there are TONS of new items being added to The Marketplace every day! One of our favorite new finds comes from Ready Go who is known for its signature banner-style cake toppers and signs. We’re loving their collection of cake toppers that look like you, personalized with your choice of attire, skin color, hair color, eye color, and more. Here are just a few examples that we spotted… and you can see more in the shop. Enjoy!
Picking out a bridesmaid dress can be tough work. You want to please everyone, fit everyone’s budget, and pick something they’ll love as much as you do. That’s why today’s post is going to help you out so much. And, we’re also helping bride-to-be, Amy, who wrote us with this question:
Hi Emmaline. I saw a wedding where the bridesmaids wore the same bridesmaid dress different ways (with unique necklines), but they all wore the same color. The dresses were short and flowy. Any tips on where to find them?
Great question, Amy! The term for a bridesmaid dress worn different ways is a convertible dress (sometimes called an infinity dress, too!) A bridesmaid dress worn different ways (but in the same color) is a smart choice for your bridesmaid attire, and today we’re telling you five reasons why. But first… check out this adorable example of bridesmaids wearing the convertible dresses. We love how the bride chose navy blue convertible dresses, but then had her girls accentuate their look with brightly-colored heels and bright blooms.
There’s bound to be a color that coordinates with your color palette perfectly.
2. She’ll ACTUALLY wear it again.
Oh, we’ve heard it all before. “You’ll totally want to wear the dress again!” These dresses are made of jersey material that’s totally comfortable, so you can bet she’ll wear it again. Plus, if you choose a more neutral tone (black, grey, or navy, just to name a few) you’ll be positively sure she’ll actually wear her dress again.
Just as you saw in the first image in this article, you can really let each bridesmaid’s personality shine with colorful accessories, whether matching or not. Shoes, statement necklaces, hair accessories, a clutch purse, or earrings are just ways to play up the color.
4. She can pick a neckline that flatters her body.
Each bridesmaid’s body type is different; why stick every woman in the same exact dress? Instead, she can wear her dress in any neckline style she chooses, whether that is strapless or halter or one-shoulder, just to name a few.
5. These dresses are actually affordable!
Many of the dresses shown here are $75, which is an awesome price point. And, each dress is handmade, right here in the USA.
Need fresh dress inspiration, as in the loveliest sheer neckline wedding dress ever? I know that’s a tall order, but we’ve found it! This dress is handmade by Grace Loves Lace and is an ideal style for the bohemian bride. It features an invisible mesh neckline, stretch French lace bodice, hand cut appliquéd lace, and a sheer lace back. We adore the tulle wraps that fall from the back and cross-cross to tie around your waist; it’s such a unique touch! You can leave the tulle wraps loose to make a train, too, if you prefer (or for just the ceremony). Don’t just take our word for it… take a look for yourself!
