June is almost here can you believe it? Almost six months into 2010.
And ’tis the season for love, love, and more love. Wedding fever is upon us!
Here are three things to keep in mind when you are searching for that special dress to wear to a wedding:
#1: Note the time of day, the location of the wedding and what the invitation says. For a more formal wedding or a wedding later in the day that runs into the evening, you may want to consider a suit, a cocktail dress or a more formal dress in a longer length. Depending upon the formality, you may want to have a dress that has a bit of beading. Take a look at our Simply Silk Two Piece Beaded Dress for a more formal wedding.
For a less formal dress, you can consider a jacket over a pant suit or a tank dress. Take a look at our Sienna Rose Black and Cream Feathered Daisy Dress
or our Simply Silk Jackets like this Aqua silk burnout kimono jacket or the
Simply Silk hand painted, beaded mini butterfly kimono jacket. For the most part, anything goes—within reason. However, club wear, too-revealing attire and wild prints are best left for another time and place.
Remember the choices are endless! You can dress in pretty floral prints or solid colors in yellow, blue, green, or purple and certainly avoid anything that will “outshine” the bride–like all white– on her special day.
When in doubt: Call and ask– it is perfectly acceptable to do so.
#2 Consider the wear-ability and reuse-abilty factor. In other words, can I wear it again? Many times, I have purchased “the season” dress up dress as long as I am not going to be seen by the same circle of friends and family. Make the dress different by choosing different accessories. I love to be able to have an item that crosses over from work to more formal wear.
#3 Consider the fabric and detail work on the dress. Can it be removed if you want to make it your everyday dress. Don’t forget your tailor! It always amazes me when women come into the store and find that perfect dress but it is too long here or too big there or shows too much here…A good tailor is a must! For a small amount, you can take the garment to the tailor and get it adjusted to you. Very few things today fit like a glove. Investing a little bit will save you a lot in the long run.
Most of all, share the love and have fun! Happy Wedding Season to All!
