On Monday October 21, 2013, Sun*Kissed Designs participated in the Red Carpet Bridal Tour Howard County! The Red Carpet Bridal Tour is a 4 venue experience where brides-to-be visit 4 different event locations where vendors are present to provide services, demonstrations, tastings and shows, to help them plan their wedding. The Gathering Place, an event venue located in Clarksville, MD, was the 3rd stop on the tour where Sun*Kissed Designs shared the runway with custom menswear designer Christopher Schafer Clothier! Brides-to-be were treated to a runway experience where all of the fashions displayed were couture designs. Below are images from the runway! For the remaining runway images, visit the Facebook Page for Sun*Kissed Designs. For more information about The Red Carpet Bridal Tour visit www.redcarpetbridaltours.com. Beautiful hair and make-up designs for each model were created by Bridal Beauty Associates, and all of the images from the bridal tour were provided by L.A. Birdie Photography!
Gowns and Accessories~ Sun*Kissed Designs
We can all recall images of bridesmaids in less than flattering bridesmaids' dresses! From the dresses that are terribly outdated to the dresses where the wrong color was chosen, even movies have been made about horrible bridesmaid dress choices! That image does not have to be apart of your wedding!!
Modern bridesmaid dresses have been designed with your bridal party in mind! Styles that not only compliment and flatter every figure and complexion, but are also cute enough to wear again in the future! Your bridesmaids will thank you!
While making the selection of your bridesmaid dresses, here are 4 creative ideas to consider.
Your bridesmaids do not have to wear the exact same color!! Dresses worn in the same style but in different hues and shades of the same color or within the same color family are a great way to make a unique statement! Shades of blue! Gathers of yellow! Choosing a color theme, such as Spring or Autumn, using a few different colors, is also a great way to switch it up.
Your bridesmaids do not have to wear the same dress style!! By placing each bridesmaid in a different dress style but in the same color, this will create an individual look that is accommodating of various body types and silhouettes! This also allows you to play around with the lengths, necklines, detailing and fabrications so that each of your gal pals is completely happy and looks stunning!!
Gown Style Theme~
Have you always loved vintage dresses of the 50s!? Do your bridesmaids each love beach inspired sundress gowns?! Create a gown theme, within your bridal colors, that is unique to the personalities of your bridesmaids!
Wedding Theme Styles~
Is your overall wedding theme whimsical, light and airy?! Are you incorporating an antique approach to your wedding decor?! Include elements of your wedding theme into the accessories and detailing of each bridesmaids' look! This allows you to choose the same style of dress and just accessorize and style each bridesmaid differently. Choosing different jewelry or accessories, will accent each dress and compliment each bridesmaid!
Your wedding day will no doubt be a memorable one! And by highlighting each of your bridesmaids in a unique way, they will remember your efforts for years to come!
