Attention all brides to be!!! ModCloth is going to be your go-to e-retailer for dressing all the darling damsels in your wedding party.
I’ve been an MOH and a bridesmaid a few times to know what it really takes to style a stellar wedding party.
Some might think what’s the big deal. You wear a dress (one, that you will probably never, ever wear again), carry a bouquet and manage to walk down the aisle without falling flat on your face (think of the runway fiasco Carrie Bradshaw found herself in on SATC Season 4!)
But believe me, there is so much more to it than that.
The way a bridal party looks is a reflection on the bride and those women can either add beauty to your wedding theme or be a tacky distraction.
The most important advice I could give to anyone that will soon be taking on this overwhelming task is this: Brides, please be considerate to the body types of your bridesmaids.
Not all dresses are created equal and although you may have a particular look in mind for your girls, keep in mind that the style of dress may not flatter everyone.
Another possible dilemma weddings cause is the fear of paying out tons of money for a dress that you will only get to wear once.
Don’t get me wrong I know this is the bride and groom’s day and by default they should get what they want.
It should also be said that when you agree to take on the role of a bridesmaid/MOH it comes with the understanding that you will be coughing up some money along the way for various events and items. It’s just a known fact; so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to be paying a little more $$$ for your bridesmaid dress.
But a way to be kind to your bridal party is to pick out a dress for your friends that will live on long after you and your hubby say I do.
That’s why I love the options that the new ModCloth wedding collection provides. There are plenty of romantic and classically feminine dresses and gowns up to a size 4X!
So you are definitely going to be able to find something beautiful for the important women in your life. After all don’t you want them looking their finest as they stand beside you celebrating your love?
I say yes.
