How to Find the Perfect Bridesmaid Dress: Part One

IMG_7950

Hunting for bridesmaid dresses can be one of the most difficult parts of the wedding planning process. Before you decide what style of bridesmaid dresses you want, here are three important points to consider:

  1. The location of your wedding,
  2. The theme of your wedding,
  3. And finally, but most importantly, your personal style.

The location of your wedding

Location. Location. Location. Once you pick out the perfect backdrop for your perfect day, the rest of the pieces should fall into place. The location helps guide you on the style and color of the bridesmaid gown.

For example, a scenic, lush, mountain view wedding would pair perfectly with bold colored bridesmaid gowns to capture the background.

A beach wedding might have bridesmaids wear something a bit softer, maybe soft, pastel colors, so the crystal blue water will pop in the photos.

Whereas a white winter wedding could suggest something a bit more glamorous, yet completely warm, for the bridesmaids, such as a fur coats or sequin gowns.

The theme of your wedding

The theme of the wedding can help guide you towards choosing the right bridesmaid gown for your girls.

For a beach wedding, the dresses could be flowy and airy. A traditional Church wedding could have the opposite effect: maybe choose something simple yet glamorous to match with the decor of the Church or reception room.

Your personal style

Your personal style needs to be at the front of your mind when selecting bridesmaid gowns.
Here are three questions to ask yourself:

What do you like to wear?
Would you enjoy seeing these colors, patterns, and styles at your wedding?
Would you wear it?

Tomorrow, I will be talking about the how to coordinate your style with your bridesmaids style thus creating a beautiful and cohesive wedding party.

What is a Convertible Dress?

Just like how every woman’s closet should have that little black dress, so should every woman’s closet host a convertible dress.

What is a convertible dress? A convertible dress is a dress that can be reformed into at a multitude of styles simply by changing the straps. You can transform the look of your neck, chest, back and waistline. You can twist and tie the dress into a halter neck or even go strapless to suit the style of the event.

Nuova Vita has transformed the convertible dress into a glamorous gown that can be worn for special occasions such as weddings to being converted to something sexy for a date night or girly for a fun night out and no one will think that it’s the same dress!

I pride myself on creating fashionable and elegant pieces that you will fall in love with as soon as you wear it. From the soft fabric to the variety of colors you can choose from, you will find that having a convertible dress in your closet will be the hero outfit that you can rely on every time.

The convertible gown has become so popular that I have even created a maternity line, for bountiful soon-to-be Moms who want to wear something that makes them feel beautiful and grows with their shape. Instead of being bored with wearing the same outfit over and over, pregnant women are able to change it up, by simply converting it to a different style.
