Say Yes to Mom’s Dress

70826_300px

Your mom has always been there for you through thick and thin. She’s fixed countless scrapes and bruises with Band-Aids and kisses and has wiped your tears when your heart is broken. Now that it’s time for you to begin your life away from your mom, there is no better gift that you can give her this Mother’s Day than to spend the day with her selecting the dress that she will wear to your special day.

Your mom feels the same nervous excitement about your big day that you do, and is probably pretty anxious about the dress that she will be wearing. Below are some ways that you can help ease this nervous tension and help her to better enjoy the process.

Take your Mom Shopping

There are so many options to choose from and your mom may need help making the perfect selection for her dress. It is also likely that it has been awhile since she has had a need for a formal dress. Simply being there when your mom chooses her dress can be a special moment to bond and relax.

Offer Advice

It is your wedding, so if you have a special look in mind for your mom, don’t be afraid to voice your opinion. More than likely, your mom will love the feedback that you offer and will be happy to go in the direction that you think is best. However, don’t give her so many restrictions that it makes the time you spend together stressful.

Start Early

Begin planning your trip a few months before your wedding. This will give your mom time to feel comfortable about the process. Many moms also take this time to lose a little weight before they are fitted for their dress. Just as brides want to look their best, so does your mom. She knows that this is a special day and will want to look her best. Planning ahead can make the dress buying process more fun and easier.

Make an Appointment

Just as you would make an appointment to select your wedding gown, you should make an appointment for your mom as well. This can make her feel special and will help her have expert advice as to which dress looks the best for her. By making the event special, the pair of you will be able to share a special moment together before your big day.

Tips for Mom

When you’re selecting a Mother of the Bride’s dress, there are just as many options as there are gowns for brides. These options can become confusing and if you aren’t sure how the dress should fit you may easily become overwhelmed. Here are a couple of tips to remember when you are selecting your dress for your daughter’s wedding.

  • Short dresses should stop just above or at the knee
  • Longer dresses that fall around the mid-calf will make you appear older
  • Sleeveless dresses are ok; even for mom
  • If your dress comes with a jacket, it should be fitted properly so that it compliments your figure.

Final Thoughts

Your mom is the most special woman in your life and one of the most important people that will be by your side on your special day.

For best results, make a day of the shopping adventure and find other things that you can enjoy together as well.

5 TIPS ON CHOOSING A PROM DRESS

People dress up differently every morning but there are those days whereby the mode of dressing should be a bit peculiar from the others. In other words, sometimes you will be expected to dress up in some fancy and stylish clothing.  If you are a high school girl, you will be expected to attend some dancing classes and it is in such days that you must choose your type of prom dress carefully.  Selecting the most appealing and affordable prom dresses can be quite difficult. However, the following tips, with examples of some incredible prom dresses, will  simplify the process of doing so and they will guide you whenever you have that special occasion.

Know Yourself

Are you tall, slender, curvy or pear shaped? When it comes to dressing, scores of students wear clothes dictated by their peers. Even though that dazzling prom dress worn by your colleague or that magazine-cover model is appealing, it may not fit your body shape. Yes, the size might be exactly fitting, but you must take into consideration whether the same dress makes you look balanced or not. Before you step out to shop for that ideal prom dress, be adequately informed as far as your shape, color and body style are concerned. Remember, that dress must appear official irrespective of who is wearing it.

How Long Should the Hem Be?

This mainly will help you in deciding whether to wear a mini-dress or below-the-knees pro dress. Inquire carefully from dress experts on this and don’t forget to try prom dresses with small hems as well as those with extended ones. Remember, the type of dress, body size as well the length of the hem should help in displaying some features like legs in the most charming way.

Your Bust

Some girls have big rounded busts, and for them, they should prioritize on prom dresses that somehow lessen the appearance of their bottoms. For instance, they can wear a costume with a sharp waistline and avoid those that drop straight over your figure.  Doing so, they can comfortably wear the bras of their choice and put on those fancy strapless dresses. For the small bust type, the rule is to wear dresses that enhance your bust line. A good way is to go for dresses with low V-shaped necklines and accompanying this with the right bra size.

Your Budget

Almost every store that specializes in prom dresses discourages the return of any purchased attire. Some even put it in writing and you should, therefore, always consider purchasing a prom gown that suits the occasion and can be worn for a longer period. It will be illogical to pay hundreds of dollars and never enjoy a prom outfit, basically because you missed slightly on your size.

Where to Buy

Online sources are the best for the reason that they have all the necessary information clustered in an easy-to-navigate web pages. Notwithstanding, you should ensure the online store has various types of prom dresses, including the specific accessories, and they are good at keeping their promises. To some extent, a few online stores have been known to delay delivery of purchased items while others illegally change some specifications for your order.

If you’re planning to attend a New Year’s Eve party to ring in 2012, why not make the most of your natural beauty by choosing the perfect dress in the ideal cut and color? From sleek and graphic black-and-white, to bold jewel tones that light up your complexion…we truly have it all.

Purple Haze…

Simple and luxurious, the flattering lines of the plum-colored gown featured above will make the most of your curves on New Year’s Eve. This knee-length cocktail gown is the perfect backdrop for glittering necklaces, dramatic drop earrings, and chic high heels…so be sure to have fun with it – accessorize to the hilt and make a grand entrance on the night of December 31st!

Lady in Red…

Channel your inner goddess with this luscious, flowing scarlet number. A gorgeous halter neckline shows off your arms and throat, while a nipped-in waistline gives you the perfect hourglass silhouette. Striking and very grown-up, this dramatic red evening dress will make you feel like a queen on New Year’s Eve. This sort of dress doesn’t require a lot of accessories – however, it does require sophisticated makeup (neutral tones always look elegant with a red gown) and the perfect holiday hairstyle. Metallic high heels in a strappy sandal style will add a touch of bold style to your ensemble!

Golden Girl…

 New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to get a little more flamboyant with your personal style. After all, women naturally gravitate towards metallic and sparkly evening dresses during the holidays. If you’re feeling daring, show off your glowing skin with a golden evening dress that really stands out. This gown is strapless, sexy, and sure to stop traffic. Accessorize with nude platform heels that make your legs look endless, and top off your New Year’s party outfit with a choker necklace that calls attention to this sizzling dress’ plunging neckline.

Not for the faint of heart, this beautiful design will add warmth to the skin – to get the perfect hair and makeup look, go for burnished bronze eye shadows, a touch of light bronzer on the forehead, cheekbones, and bridge of the nose – then, add a neutral lip color topped with a dollop of glistening golden lip gloss. Your hair should be soft, silky, and volumized…

Runway Ready…

evening gowns
Black and white is pure chic on New Year’s! If you’re into Paris runway style that echoes the look of Chanel or Yves Saint Laurent, you’ll love this whimsical style. A pretty strapless bodice features delicate pin-tucks and an elegant bow. Designed to highlight your decolletage, this clever evening gown comes complete with a high-waisted black skirt that is so slimming. Accesorize with a tousled up-do and scarlet lips to keep the whole look stylized and graphical. Nude heels will work – so will basic black, or any subtle, antique metallic. Jewelry is really optional, but drop earrings will look fabulous, as long as they are sleek and sophisticated.
