    Dressing Your Wedding Party

    Looking for a simple solution to dressing all the lovely ladies in your wedding party? Well as luck would have it, we've got some suggestions on handling your picky Mother of the Bride & Groom as well as those tricky bridesmaids!

    As women we desire to be center stage at every event. We can't help it, it's in our nature! BUT this day is 100% about the lucky couple and your outfit needs to respect that. It's important (and difficult) for the Mothers to pick the perfect dress. You are in the spotlight but not exactly the star today. So what do you wear?

    We suggest dressing the Moms in something (a) age appropriate and (b) stunningly photogenic. This means no mini skirts minimal cleavage, but we also need to pay attention to the fabric and details and how they come out in photos. Photos are what you'll be looking at for the rest of your life and black stones on black fabric might look gorgeous in person but will end up pretty bland in that album later. 

    Do: 

    Pick a fitted and flattering dress

    Pick a fun color. Black is acceptable if the occassion is formal

    Depending on how formal the event is, you can go long or short

    Don't:

    Pick a low cut bandage dress that might grab all the wrong attention

    Pick red or stark white, these still hold some wedding stigmas

    Once again these women need to look amazing as it is their job to compliment the Bride and her gown. There are a lot of trends with bridesmaid dresses including matching dress, just matching colors, same color family, white to match the bride and so many more creative ideas. Really it's up to you, the bride, to decide how you want your wedding party to look. 

    At Lending Luxury we don't always carry the same dress is every size but if you look around you could get lucky. Picking a color family, like putting all the girls in a blue dress, is a little easier. However, letting the girls have free reign over their dress might seem like fun at first but it actually gets very stressful. For once they're not dressing for themselves and they have to make sure to comply to your real or percieved rules. We constantly have girls coming in looking for a specific peach color with absolutely no embellishments and a certain neckline and it's just not possible. If you want something specific, pick it out yourself and I promise the bridesmaid will be greatful!

    Do:

    Pick a fun, flirty style that fits all the girls' body types or allow them to choose styles in matching colors. They know what looks best on them!

    Pick a color or even a print for some amazing photos

    Go with a short or long skirt depending on the overall look you're going for

    Don't:

    Give them free reign to pick a dress to match two or more rules that you've set out for them

    Pick a style or silhouette that is going to look good on only half the girls. Rmemeber we're all built differently!

    Grown Up Dress Trends For Easter Weekend

    Last updated 1 year ago

    When you think about Easter dresses, the words "pastel" and "appropriate" probably come to mind first. True, the colors of the holiday are pastel and girlie in nature, and the dress you choose is usually worn to church and/or a family affair so it should be fairly demure. However, these categories shouldn't in any way limit your choices on cute dresses! 

    It is not impossible to find a flattering dress that will definitely be deemed "appropriate" for the event! We've picked some of our favorite dress choices for you to help narrow it down.

    First up is something ultra-sweet but we know you can handle it. Aidan Mattox's Sweet Flower Dress is a perfectly colored, interestingly textured and form flattering Easter dress! You can't deny that its light blush pink keeps with the color palette the Easter Bunny supplied us with! 

    There aren't many occassions where you can wear orange, but Springtime sure helps us out there! Bright colors like this tangerine Flower Dress by Cynthis Steffe are not only acceptable, but encouraged this season! So parade proudly in this frily frock this weekend! 

    The A-line skirt, floral print and perfect fit make this dress a winner all season long! We're loving the sweetness of this light and flowy silk Hope Dress by Cynthia Steffe. Perfect for skirt twirling, egg hunts and dinner parties!

    Looking for a conservative yet trendy silhouette? We've got you covered in this subtle printed Snake Dress by Single with it's to the knee pencil skirt and squared shoulders. Did we mention there are pockets? We love a good pocket!

    So tell us...what are you wearing this weekend?

     

    What Women Actually Wear For Easter

    Last updated 1 year ago

    You've seen all the Target and Macy's commercials of women bouncing around the house in their brand new Easter dresses, feeding their matching families. But do women actually dress like that for Easter? Do they dress up at all? We asked a few for their honest accounts of their Easter wardrobes...

    ~ Sarah ~

    "I usually just wear something I already have, typically a light colored sundress and cardigan. I do try to dress the boys cute though- khakis, vest over button down. All things we already have though. I'm pretty lazy and both my sons' wardrobes are bigger than mine!"

    Why We Love Spring Colors

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Happy Spring! And yes it's that time again... Time to pack up the sweaters and make room for more tanks and sundresses! Time to shop for cheerier and fun new colors! Here are a few of our favorites  (and why we love them so much) from Pantone that we'll definitely be on the lookout for this season!

    The lead color for women for the season, Aquamarine is an airy blue with a dreamy feel. Cool and calming, ethereal Aquamarine is a shade with a wet and watery feel. Open and expansive, this restful blue also acts as a stress reducer. (Show off the perfect blue in this Ema Savahl painted dress)

    Fresh and clarifying, cool and refreshing, Lucite Green has a minty glow. Light in weight and also in tone, it seems almost transparent. (Try out this abstract halter from Nicole Miller for a taste of this sweet hue)

    Aptly named, Strawberry Ice is suggestive of a cooling and refreshing delicacy, yet its warmth as a color is quite appealing. Strawberry Ice is a confection color that evokes a feeling of being “in the pink,” emitting a flattering and healthy glow. (Get ready for your spring fling in this printed Meghan Fabulous maxi dress!)

    Spontaneous and gregarious, Tangerine is a juicy orange shade that is energizing, yet not jarring to the eye. Versatile Tangerine is striking enough to stand on its own and adds vitality to a printed pattern. (We love this peachy tunic by Meghan Fabulous as a chic cover-up or fun frock this season)

    Glacier Gray is an unobtrusive gray that contrasts and enhances; bouncing off other shades without taking away from them as it slips into the background to allow other colors to take center stage. (Check out this printed Sentimental bandage dress for a hint of gray)

     

    So what's your favorite color this season?
