Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses Done Right

October 16, 2014 Leave a Comment

Oh, how we love mismatched bridesmaid dresses, especially when done right! Although it sounds like a piece of cake, the loveliest mismatched bridesmaid dresses done right actually requires a little pre-planning on your part.

If you’re wondering what mismatched bridesmaid dresses are, it is a trend where bridesmaids don dresses that are similar but not exactly the same. You are essentially asking bridesmaids to pick a dress they love in a particular shade, typically one that complements your color palette. You can pick the same style of dress and have each bridesmaid pick their favorite color; or, they can have free reign and pick any style dress in any color. However, to get this look right, we recommend providing a color palette with complementing shades so they look lovely and harmonious, without having to be exact carbon copies of each other. Complementing shades = a more cohesive look. Your photos will look awesome. You’ll be happy. She’ll be happy. She’ll actually wear the dress again. She’ll love how awesome she looks in her dress, and she’ll love you 1000x for it, since you’re pretty much Bride of the Year for being so flexible.

And, if you want to add one teensy element that will pull them all together, an accessory piece like this embellished dress belt will do the trick.

Getting Ready Robe – Doie

October 15, 2014 Leave a Comment

Getting Ready Robe - Doie

Doie. If you’re not familiar yet, listen up because these getting ready robes from Doie are taking the wedding world by storm! You’ve probably heard of a getting ready robe in the past, you know, the kind you wear the morning of the wedding, while you’re filling out one of these.

Getting Ready Robe – Doie

Getting Ready Robe - Doie

Now, if I was planning my wedding, as I did a few years back, I’d be wondering the same thing you probably are. “Cute,”but, “is it comfy? Does it cover me? Will it fit? Is it soft? Should I really get one? Can I fit it into my budget?” We ask so many questions, no? With these robes, though, I have to say… the answer is yes all around. The only problem you’ll have is trying to pick a favorite design and color combination from their gorgeous choices.

Getting Ready Robe - Doie

I actually have a getting ready robe from Doie and it is LUXURIOUSLY soft. I’ve had robes in the past, but this? This one is my favorite. It’s honestly the first thing I look forward to putting on when I’ve had a long day and need to relax and want to curl up with a book and a cup of coffee. To paint my nails. To put on makeup. To snuggle Baby Andrew, who loves the satin trim so much that he’s always grabbing and pulling at it while I try to change him. I grab my Doie robe to make cocoa at night. To watch Netflix reruns. Speaking of, did you know Gilmore Girls is on reruns? I’m on Season Two and Lorelai is being proposed to by Max and there are so many funny and cute things that happen. The 1000 yellow daisies? I die. And could they drink any more coffee? Every five minutes it’s coffee this, coffee that. And I thought I was a coffee addict. How amazing is Melissa McCarthy, all the way back then? She is. Oh, and Luke & Loreai? I hope that happens. Sorry, Max. But I digress.

Getting Ready Robe - Doie

So, anyways, stop wondering about whether or not you really need one and head over to Doie. Pick out a favorite style. It’s one wedding thing you’ll be able to reuse and enjoy for a long, long time. Oh, and might I add: they wash up really nicely. You’ll want to wash on the delicate cycle, cold water, and hang dry. That’s what I did for mine and it came out just as lovely as it did when it arrived after ordering.
