14 AprMismatches Bridesmaid Dresses

Non-matching bridesmaid dresses are a very popular choice among brides — encouraging bridesmaids to wear something that generally coordinates. Nowadays, bridesmaids can wear a dress that suits their own unique figure, budget, and personality. It might sound odd, but it can be done and it can look amazing! Honestly, I love the way it looks. Plus, it’s likely something they’ll  wear again (none of that 27 Dresses business).

However, executing this trend can be a little tricky. It is important to remember that there must be an underlying theme that pulls the entire group into a cohesive look.

Here are some ideas and tips:

Different Shades:
The easiest colors to mismatch are neutrals. They tend to look extra chic, and it’s easier to avoid color clashes. Keep in mind that the lighter the shade of the dresses, the better the overall group look. For a more eclectic look, you can opt to have bridesmaid dresses uk  wear both short and long dresses.

Different Styles:

Different Colors:
For weddings with playful colors, switch it up with different colored dresses. Match them to your wedding palette to add a little oomph to your bridal party.

Same Color, Different Dress Styles:
Keeping the same exact color works well for brides who are determined to have a particular color for their bridesmaids. Give your bridesmaids a couple of fabric samples in the color you would like to wear and let them pick their own dresses. You may also want to include a few notes about length, or fabric.

Same Dress, Different Accessories:
If you’ve picked a dress that all your bridesmaids are happy with, why not try accessorizing each bridesmaid differently with different colored shoes, earrings, cardigans, rings, necklaces or different bouquets for each.

Free Style:
If you’re the type of bride with extremely stylish friends, this is the option for you. There are no ground rules because your trendy ‘maids would probably break them anyway. Mix and matching different bridesmaids dresses are a great option if you feel like your girls have a great sense of style. Though you are giving them the freedom to choose what to wear on your wedding, you can always provide some guidance about your wedding theme to keep the look together.

The most important thing to do is to communicate. Let your bridesmaids know what your ultimate vision looks like (make inspiration boards, send them color palettes and fabrics, etc.) and have fun with it!

11 AprAudiobook Review Wedding Dresses

My Goodreads profile mocks me.  With each log-in I am further away from meeting my reading goals.

At your current pace, you’re 8 books (17%) behind schedule.
At your current pace, you’re 24 books  (51%) behind schedule.
At your current pace, you’ll never resume book-blogging. Hang it up sister.

Goodreads shows I’ve only finished 4 books all year, one of which was a travel guide. (If you suffered from Attention Deficit Book Disorder, you’d rate travel guides too…and Oahu Revealed earned those five stars).

I just haven’t been in the mood for Christian fiction.  But I may have discovered a cure for what ails me and the recipe is simple: equal parts audiobooks and Rachel Hauck.
	 A-line Sweetheart Chapel Train Tulle Wedding Dress 
To crawl out of  wedding dresses uk a reading canyon like this, one has to circle the wagons. Filter out the clamor of new releases and focus on the authors who made you fall in love with Christian fiction in the first place.  For me, Rachel Hauck is one of those authors.
The Wedding Dress is a whimsical story of a vintage gown which automatically fits the one bride destined to wear it- no alterations needed.  Thanks to a little nudging by a mysterious man in purple, the dress crosses paths with its intended: Charlotte, a bridal shop owner recently dumped by her fiancee.

This title will go down as one my top five* favorite Rachel Hauck books. I adored the dual love stories taking place in both the past and the present. Two brides, the same dress, separated by a several decades. There is also an element of fantasy in this romance that I found refreshing.  It reminded me a little of the story The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.  

	 A-line Sweetheart Chapel Train Tulle Wedding Dress 

Listening to the audio version added a whole new dimension to The Wedding Dress.  I’ve always enjoyed Hauck’s southern settings and the voices she gives her characters.  But the narrator of this title, Eleni Pappageorge (who sounds exactly like Ashley Judd), had a delicious southern accent which really brought the story to life. The prom dresses uk version comes with book club discussion questions which can be downloaded from the website if needed.

I don’t know if my Attention Deficit Book Disorder is completely cured.  But now I know where to find the medicine.  Rachel Hauck has another book coming out and I hope they release it in audio!

09 AprSewing My Wedding Dress: the Skirt

Finally, here is the construction of my skirt! My final inspiration was a mermaid style skirt, which is the look I wanted with the vintage McCalls pattern that I just could get. Finally, I gave up on that waste of time and I pulled out the pieces to Vogue 1183, that I had recently used to make a wool dress. The skirt was about right for the waist and hips: seams, not darts and it fit decently, if I added a bit of room.

So I made a muslin, adding about an inch at the center front and back so that it wasn’t as prom dresses uk tight as the wool dress (duh I am not a 6!). Then I tapered the pieces in at the knee and flared them out into a fan shape at the bottom. Then I added a godet to the center front. As you can see below, since it was cut on the fold, it lacked the flare of the other points. The godet gave it the same shaping, while also eliminating the need for a center seam.

At that point, I had about 2 weeks until the wedding so it was like “Let’s go!”
The skirt is three distinct layers. China silk lining, silk charmeuse underlining with the shiny side in, and then of course my top layer of lace. After some internet snooping, I decided all the layers needed to be distinct to give the best floatyness.
Here you can see the flare of the final skirt and the center godet.

Here is a close-up of the joint. I did a really wonky job on the two lower layers, so for the lace I did french seams on one side and then top-stitched down the left side to be sure there would be no puckers or bumps.

I made french seams on the lace skirt, but did not finish the seams on the underskirts because they are hidden. Lol, I never finish seams, why would my wedding dress be any different?

Somehow I miscalculated on the French seams, though and it ended up being too snug. The lace was tighter than the silk layers beneath. It was really only tight over the widest part of my his, just below where the zipper ends. I would have just left it as is, since time was getting short, but I felt like it was distorting the lace and might tear it. I ended up adding a tiny insert to the center back seam below the zipper, which you can see between the red pins in the picture below. Very hard to see, and no one would even notice.

I was able to use the scallops on the hem, which turned out to be the perfect way to hem the lace. It gave a very nice finish and I am really happy with the final look. The underskirts are both machine hemmed in a shoddy and molly-like way. Aka, no one can see them! ;)

I hemmed it at just the right length where it looked nice with the heels I bought for the ceremony and then still didn’t drag on the ground after I switched to flats. Bam, genius!

Overall, I would say it cost about $300 and I am not even going to guess how long it took if you count all the muslins and fittings. I am super proud of myself and am happy to say “I made my own wedding dress!!!
