Congratulations! You’re Engaged, Now What…? – Magical Monday

Happy, happy “Magical Monday” from Fairy Land!

We are so thrilled that you have stayed with us during our series for the newly engaged, “Congratulations! You’re Engaged, Now What…?”

This week we are still roughly about 8-10 months away from your magical day, and the planning hasn’t stopped!

Now that you have said “Yes!” to the dress, it’s time to get your bridesmaids their dresses!

First things first. It’s crucial when considering the type of dress to put your favorite ladies in, to think of their body types. You wouldn’t want to put anyone in something that they didn’t feel comfortable in, or wouldn’t buy themselves. These dresses are what you want to compliment your stunning gown, whether it be simple or over the top elegant. Make it simple and significant and it will all work out!

Consider your day when selecting styles or color, if you’re having a winter hill-top countryside mountain wedding, the short cocktail dress in neon pink with super puffy sleeves may not be for you… And if it is, totally go for it! Be sure that just because you like something that it actually works with your vision for your wedding day.

Consult your wedding day squad about their budget! This is important. You would never want to put your bridesmaids in a pinch in order to stand by you as you begin the first day of forever. Be sensitive to their needs, but this is your day. If you have a dream and a vision that you are sticking to, don’t let your guard down. Your ladies, and gents, will understand.

From the moment bridesmaids dresses are ordered to the moment the final alterations are all finalized could be about 5-6 months. This means it is imperative that you get your orders submitted in a timely fashion, but also so that the colors all match! Some companies end up having to make dresses as they sell out to fill the demand, and sometimes the next batch of dresses may be a little off in the color of the dye they use.

It’s time for “the talk.”

Picture this… It’s wedding day! You have tried on your dress with your shoes, you have had your mock-up of your hair done… You know exactly how you are going to look! But… one small rather significant detail… Undergarments. Straps, lines, you don’t want them!

Be sure to consider what you will need in order for the dress to look just as you, and your bride, intended!

There are a few things to remember when selecting your wedding party’s attire! One is that your wedding party is the face of your wedding, they will be in majority of your photos, and most of all- you don’t want to be the couple that made their wedding party wear something atrocious! 

When it comes to your bridesmaids, you want to make sure that their gowns won’t upstage your bride while remaining cohesive with the style. Whether you personally select each person’s attire or give them free reign, you have to have some sort of direction regarding wardrobe, after all it is your wedding day!

Groomsmen are a bit more simple, with a lot less wiggle room as far as accessories and wardrobe choices are concerned. A solid color tux, or suit, accented with a color relative to the wedding decor makes it easy and still looks great!

If you’re more of a relaxed, carefree couple you may consider deciding on a color scheme and let your wedding party decide on their own outfits. 

It is important to keep in mind your party’s body types, budgets, and personalities in mind. We all know that there is nothing worse than being stuck in something that you feel extremely uncomfortable in.
