The saying goes “happy wife happy life”, but before the wedding bells ring the real truth is “happy bridal party happy bride” (hopefully the reality of this statement compensates for the lack of rhyme). A bridal party can be quite the hassle at times. They’re trying to help you have your best day without also breaking the bank, so the stress in the group can get a little heated at times. However, making your brides feel special in the wedding is a key ingredient to any good group dynamic. But let’s not remember that at the end of the day, it is about you!
Let’s Crash Some Weddings
Remember that scene in Wedding Crashers where Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson meet there (spoiler alert) soon to be lovers Isla Fisher and Rachel McAdams? More importantly, do you remember the dresses Rachel and Isla were wearing?! If you don’t then get ready to fall in love with neutral satins. Rachel and Isla’s seemingly plain satin look is one which not only elegantly highlights the bride, but also looks phenomenal on the bridal party. The real seller here in these dress though… is the comfort. They’re like those sexy satin dresses you see women wearing before bed in romantic comedies, but now you get to wear bedtime down the aisle!
“She’s a mess of gorgeous chaos, and you can see it in her hair”
The original quote had “eyes” in place of “hair”, but that a little too crazy bridezilla don’t you think? And anyhow, it’s really the hair that becomes the highlighting piece when it comes to brides and bridesmaids. Some brides think order is everything when it comes to their special day, but the truth is, there is beauty in the chaos. Have your bridesmaids pick their own dos this wedding season and see where things go from there. If you really hate what people are thinking or your best friend is matching a little too close to you then you can always change things around again. But there’s no harm in trying!
Purple, Boho and all things Pinterest
If there’s one site more infamous in today’s world than the live-streaming world of Instagram it’s most certainly Pinterest. And currently, Pinterest is promoting the neutral tones but they are also suggesting hints of purple. Lilac is one of the more subtle purples which can help your wedding pop without taking away from you, the bride. The problem with bright, flashy colors is that they actually draw away from the classic white dress. Colors like lilac can compliment and diversify a wedding without taking away from the bride themselves.
At the end of the day your wedding is yours to make into the version you may have been envisioning since you were a little girl. However it’s safe to say good advice is hard to come by. Get truly expert advice from some of the best at The Rocky Mountain Bridal Show.
