I have always been a stylist that peaked into Bridal stores for amazing gowns for photo
shoots, but not until recently have I truly found the need to actually find dresses for myself to not only attend weddings but to be in them as well. Let's not forget finding the perfect dresses for my girls who will be in my own wedding. Who knew it was such a task. I don't know about you but I am into details, I am also into things being something you can use again. I would hate to make someone by or have something that can never be worn at a later time, no one wants to be stuck with a prom dress, with tons of ruffles in a pastel. So I decided to share some amazing finds I have come across. Maybe it will help the next lady who can not seem to find the perfect party dress for a wedding.
I am obsessed with Vera Wang and Davids Bridal holds so many amazing looks at a great price point:
These dresses aren't only amazing for Bridesmaids but also perfect to wear as a guest, when I had to attend my cousins wedding, and his dress code was semi formal I had nothing in my closet that was just right. I had to search and find a look that was just enough without looking like I was attending the Oscars or trying to outdo the Bride. If you are in that place these looks are perfect
Although this look borders on a bit of a more formal side with the hint of satin fabric and modest ruffle, I still feel like it gives you a bit of style and flare, and can work perfectly for a guest or even bridesmaid.
Both dresses retail at $199.95
Which is a steal!!
Moving on to another place that most have easy access to is Nordstrom.
You can make this a one stop shop, yes Davids Bridal has all you need as well. But remember I think it's smart to always find things you can wear again. Do not buy shoes that are to bridesey looking or accessories that will never be appropriate under any other setting.
This simple black slip dress is truly a classic choice. This is the kind of dress that should be in your closet, no matter the year no matter the occasion if the dress code is formal, semi formal or even cocktail this would be an amazing choice. What is even greater about it, it its only $84.00 (Lulas V-Neck Trumpet Gown)
This gorg Scarlet number >>>>>>>>>>>>>
I know I said we should choose looks that we can wear again but, how can you not want this gown. It's so Hollywood Glam and timeless.
$242 by Alfred Sung at Nordstrom
Before you say that this is a one timer. I can respond you have no imagination, after stealing the show in this gown. Simply tailor it to be above the knee or even a fitted pencil past the bodice and make it tight and sexy, you can even get it tailored into a two piece make the top a bit cropped and the bottom a high waist pencil skirt BOOM!
This beautiful dress is by Adrianna Papell $278
Now if removing the risk of having a Bitch Stole My Look Moment I would suggest shopping one of my favorite Designers Muehleder.com
She makes young, fresh and classy designs. Perfect the the girl who wants to stand out for all the right reasons.
This brand believes you should dress up everyday not just for a special occasion
Here are 3 of my favorite dresses for this kind of occasion:
You can shop these looks conveniently online or even visit her shop in Brooklyn. These looks range from $290 and up. You for sure will be the most stylish attendant.
