A Must See Movie: 27 Dresses

If you haven't seen the romantic comedy 27 Dresses (starring Katherine Heigl) that just hit theatres, you are definatley missing out! Anyone who is married, getting married, in a wedding, or just obsessed with weddings (like me!) would get a big kick out if this cute chick flick. I suggest leaving Mr. Right at home for an evening and going out with the girls. We, at Solutions Bridal, headed out for a girls movie night last week to see it and had a great evening. It has been such a long time since a quality movie about weddings has come forth. When the brides kept repeating "... and you can wear it again!" (In reference to their not-so flattering picks for bridesmaids dresses) we all lost it. Luckily, our bridesmaids dresses we carry in the store are nothing like the fashion crisis dresses poor Katherine Heigl had to wear! Check out the pics below to see for yourself....

For any readers that have embarrasing pics/stories of yourself in hilarious dresses that can compare to the ones shown in 27 dresses, feel free to email pics to me at cherish@solutionsbridal.com and I will post them. Don't worry, we won't laugh... afterall, I think all of us have had this experience in the past (myself Included!) I remember being 9 years old in my Uncles wedding and was forced to wear a ball of pouf and bows... so embarrasing!
On that note... I'm off to rejoyce in the delight that those days are all over, thanks to new and improved designs that just hit market! Here's to another day of helping brides and bridesmaids across the nation look amazing! I love my job! :)

P.S. Take some time off from your planning and go see 27 Dresses! Enjoy! :)

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!

  • Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
  • Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
  • DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
  • Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
  • Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
  • If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it without.it. Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
  • Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
  • Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
  • Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
  • When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
