Best Convertible Dress for Bridesmaids? – Ask Emmaline

best convertible dresses for bridesmaids

Convertible bridesmaid dresses are one of the most popular choices for attire. It’s not just because they’re made with incredibly comfortable and soft fabrics, or the fact that they can be worn a variety of ways. So when we received this Ask Emmaline question from Lauren, we knew other brides would be wondering the very same thing. She asks,

“Hi Emmaline! I have five bridesmaids and I am deciding on dresses right now. I really wanted to go with a convertible dress so they can wear it any way they’d like and hopefully after the wedding, too. I’ve seen many dresses but they’re too expensive (over $200). Do you have any tips on where to find the best convertible bridesmaid dresses? Thanks!”

Great question, Lauren! We’re happy to help you out. In this post, we’ll show you why bridesmaids love these dresses, show you where to buy the best convertible dresses for bridesmaids, and share our favorite finds to inspire you! Enjoy!

Hi, lovelies! Emma here. One of our latest Ask Emmaline questions really inspired me the other day because it’s not only a fantastic idea, but it also saves some money in the process. Rachelle wrote to us about bridesmaid clutches instead of flowers — as in, nixing the bouquets altogether and having her bridesmaids walk down the aisle carrying a pretty bag instead of a bouquet. She writes,

Dear Emmaline, I want to give my bridesmaids clutches instead of flowers (bouquets) as gifts. I don’t have a budget that allows for the cost of a clutch AND a bouquet for each bridesmaid, so I have to either pick a less expensive bridesmaid gift or skip bouquets altogether. I have seen other weddings where bridesmaids have walked down the aisle with a clutch purse, but is it proper etiquette to do so? Also, do you have any tips on what kind of clutches would suffice? Thank you!

Hi Rachelle! Not only is this a great question, but bridesmaid clutches instead of flowers is a brilliant idea for a variety of reasons. Find out why we love (and recommend) this option…

I was emailing with a bride the other day (for anonymity purposes, we’ll just call her M) about bridesmaid gifts. “There are too many options,” she said, “how am I supposed to pick just one?” It’s honestly a common problem! But there’s an easy way to put things in perspective. First, remember why you’re giving a gift in the first place: to show your sincere appreciation. Don’t over-think the gift: as long as you give something you know she will enjoy and will be happy to receive, you’ve done your job.

If you’re wondering how to pick just one, you’ll love this new option: the Bridesmaid Gift Box from Deighan Design. You won’t have to stress over what to pick, since they take the guesswork out of it all! Each gift box comes beautifully packaged (ready to be given) so you don’t even have to wrap it all. It even comes with a cute tag. And you can use this as a way to ask Will You Be My Bridesmaid when asking them, if you like! Find out what’s in the box…

Hi, loves! Emma here. Sometimes people ask me what I would do differently if I was planning my wedding right now. While many of my wedding plans would be exactly the same (you like what you like, you know?), I would add these photo clutches by bridesmaid gifts. The earrings I picked would stay the same, but I would put them inside these photo clutches as an extra gift. Why do I love these clutch purses so much? Read on to see why these photo clutches are pretty awesome — and one of the *EASIEST* gifts to give right now…

These Photo Frames Make Great Gifts for Weddings

Happy Friday! Emma here. One of my favorite gift ideas for 2016 weddings has to be one of these photo frames. I know, photo frames have been a gift idea for decades, but these are different — each frame is unlike any you’ve seen before. The lovely Laura of Montana Snow has designed these beautiful rustic photo frames as lasting keepsakes for years to come. Instead of fussing over a glass holder (and those annoying picture holder metals on the back that always chip your nails), these frames hold pictures in place with a sturdy clip. You can swap out photos in an instant right from the front or hold a small stack to keep on rotation at your desk. Plus, these frames are customized for your recipient, whether it be yourself (try a newly engaged frame or just married photo frame like these), your mom or dad (try these), or your grandma or grandpa (they’ll love these). There’s a little something here for everyone! Take a look at our favorites below and — you guessed it! — enter for a chance to win one as a gift for your parents! Good luck!

Here’s my favorite photo frame for newly engaged couples! Add a photo of the proposal, your engagement ring, or the two of you right after you said “Yes!”:
