Many comparisons can be made between a wedding and high school prom. Just as a girl grows up hoping to marry prince charming, she also is wishing to be asked to prom by a handsome man.
Women look forward to both events their entire lives. Hours (if not days/weeks) of planning and preparation are needed for the perfect night. But when it’s all said and done… a woman’s wedding (or prom in this case) isn’t perfect unless you have the right dress. You can have the best man by your side or the best hair in the room… but if you don’t feel like a princess in your dress nothing will feel right.
One of the first thing a woman will do once she’s engaged is shop for a wedding dress. The same can be said for a high school senior after she’s just asked to the big dance. Girls love shopping for prom gowns as much as a bride loves shopping for her wedding gown. They bring friends along, take pictures, and visit as many stores as they can.
Do you remember your high school prom? Did you have the perfect dress that night? The type of dress that made everyone in the room stop dancing and look with awe at you?
What colors are in this wedding season? Creams (golds) and gray seem to be quite the popular duo. Both colors are elegant and go with everything. If you’re not a fan of the gray, you may want to consider cream. Cream is subtle and warm, it can be paired with several if not all colors. The right shades of blue/grays can make quite the statment as well. When choosing the colors of your wedding, be sure and have colors that compliment one another. For instance, if you choose a pink, think about a color on the opposite side of the color wheel, like brown. Having a lighter color paired with a darker color will really allow things to stand out. Brides.com has a very neat tool that allows you to combine and look at many color palettes togther. They give you tips and suggestions on what colors to pair together.

Not only do brides have to worry about picking out the perfect wedding dress, but they also have to pick out the bridesmaid dresses! There are so many colors and styles to choose from… not to mention the price range! Generally, the bridesmaids purchase their own dresses, so you’ll need to keep their financial situation in mind.
Having a difficult time choosing the perfect bridesmaid dresses? Here are few tips that won’t steer you wrong.
Tip 1. Price, in this economy the girls will appreciate a dress that won’t break the bank.
Tip 2. If you are getting married in the spring or summer months, try and stick with dresses that are knee length or T-length.
Tip 3. Look for dresses that are not too formal. This way the bridesmaids won’t be upset about purchasing a dress that they know won’t be worn again.
If you are getting married this spring or summer, you probably want to look for the lighter colored dresses, especially if it’s an outdoor wedding. Typically, in the spring and summer months, bridesmaids are wearing T-length or knee length dresses. Popular colors are shades of pink, green, blue, and now sherbet seems to be a popular color as well. For example, these dresses from David’s Bridal are fun and stylish. The prices are very reasonable, very trendy, and the best part is, the girls can wear them over again because they aren’t too formal.
