Wedding Gowns
We all know David’s Bridal but did you know they carry dresses just for destination weddings and they’re not as expensive as a traditional wedding gown? Look for DB Studio on the David’s Bridal page.  I saw beautiful dresses for under $299 and some as low as $99.  Also check out bridesmaids dresses for wedding gowns. We’ve been seeing alot of shorter gowns for the last 2 years and I think a trend has started. Love the short dress on the beach.

Check out jjshouse.com. This place has great gowns for under $200, perfect for a beach wedding. You order your dress online and every bride who has ordered from them has got beautiful gowns that fit great.  They even have silk bouquets.

Also look at dresswe.com I saw some pretty dresses there. One of the brides told me about it.  The prices are great.  They had dresses for every size as well. I also noticed beach wedding gowns there too. So a little something for everyone.

When lacing up a wedding gown concentrate first on getting the dress laced up. Then tighten as you go up. If you try tighten as you lace it will be impossible so lace first, then tighten. Trust me on this one.

There are also prom dresses, bridesmaids dresses, sundresses almost any type of dress can be a wedding gown. Let your imagination inspire you to find the look that is right for you.

Bridesmaids Dresses
vowtobechic.com – A great way for all your ladies to wear the latest styles and RENT them. Yes rent those dresses. No more running around wondering where to find all the dresses. Another trend is to have different dresses that flatter each bridesmaid’s body type but keep them in the same color family or have neutral colors. I have seen this and it does look great.
