Inspiration for your road to the altar

If any of you have started down the path of searching for a Mother of the Bride dress, you know how hard it can be to find something appropriate. To be honest, I think we spent more time looking for my Mom’s dress for my own wedding than we did for mine! So with that said, I am so happy to introduce you to one of our newest sponsors –

Designer Apparel
is a shopping website that aggregates merchandise from other online stores (Neiman Marcus, Saks, Bloomingdales, ShopBop, and Net-a-Porter, etc) and displays current sales and deals, and links you right to the original site to purchase whatever catches your eye. And guess what? So many people were searching their site for Mother of the Bride dresses, that they created a search thread dedicated entirely to Mother of the Bride dresses! The page is updated in real time, and you can search by price, designer and popularity. I found these four adorable options in just a few minutes…its so easy to use!


Flower Girl Dresses

April 13, 2010

I’ve always loved the idea of dressing flower girls in adorable little patterned (or colored) dresses, versus having them wear white stain. So, when I was browsing for a gift this weekend and came across these dresses at Olive Juice Kids, I immediately thought they would be perfect flower girl options! Not only are they really affordable, they could certainly double as a party dress for use later in the year. They even have silver ballet flats…I can’t imagine a little girl who wouldn’t love to dance down the aisle in those!


Jess L.C.

I absolutely adore the jewelry from Jess L.C. Based out of Chicago, all of the designs are handmade and extremely affordable. Don’t they look like they could cost hundreds of dollars? Everything is well under that price range, and when I emailed Jessica to ask if I could write about her designs, she reminded me that she offers a 25% discount for bridal parties with multiple maids. Just email her and mention the discount to receive 25% off your order (plus, free shipping on orders over $60!) She also has a really cute blog that is worth checking out – a girl after my own heart!
