Tired of trying to find the perfect combination of dresses to make all your bridesmaids happy? Let’s face it, as women, we come in all different shapes and sizes. And sometimes, trying to find dresses can be a task that’s both frustrating and tiring for both you and your girls!
How many times have you stood up in a wedding where you wish the bride would have chosen a dress that looked good on everyone, instead of the one that just looked “so cute” on little Miss Size Zero?
No offence Miss Size Zero…we’ve been there with you too. Yes, I’m sure many of us were once close to a size zero at one point, however we’re not 19 anymore. Gone are the days of dancing off calories until dawn every night, and running your butt off to serve tables.
We’re growing up, and growing curves. And these womanly curves need to scream “SEXY!”, not “HELP ME, I NEED TO BREATHE!”.
Do not fear, Coco Myles is here! Coco Myles offers not only offers an amazing collection of celebrity-inspired dresses you can choose from, but also a collection of different tops and bottoms, a maternity collection, and also the perfect dress for your junior maids!
Let your girls look like a million bucks, for only a few bucks. All of their dresses are really quite affordable compared to the majority of dresses out there in stores. But the best part? Your bridesmaids can have their dresses CUSTOM MADE to fit not only their taste, but their bodies too. Let them choose from different styles, colors and fabrics, with or without a sash. Get them glam!
I just recently received my dress from Coco Myles which I absolutely love…I tried it on, it fits perfectly, and it’s so very flattering! The quality and feel of the fabric is amazing. I couldn’t be happier!
Normally that is not how I feel after picking up a dress. More than half the time, I end up having to get the dress altered. It’s not only frustrating, but can get expensive too! It gets stressful. I’m happy to say I don’t have to do that with my Coco Myles dress. It was a great deal when I got it, and an even better deal now that I don’t have to get it altered!
Guarantee your girls comfort, style and your photographer great looking pictures! And when your girls save tons of money by purchasing a Coco Myles dress, who knows – maybe they’ll splurge on you!
I recently ordered a cashmere & silk pashmina wrap from The Pashmina Store for my friend’s wedding coming up, and had to share with you how excited I was when I received it! I loved everything about it…the quality, the feel, the detailing and the comfort. It was so very soft and luxurious feeling!
I wear it all the time, and I get so many compliments on it! I can’t wait to wear it to my friend’s wedding. It’s great for covering up on a cool night wrapped around your arms, and works well wrapped around your neck as a scarf for casual wear. There are so many ways to wear a pashmina wrap! They can even be used as throws!
From shawls, wraps, scarves, blankets and more, you’ll surely find something you love at The Pashmina Store. They come in several different colors, using pashmina cashmere and silk. Perfect for weddings or other special occasions, and also great for comfy cozy casual wear too. They make wonderful gifts, especially for bridesmaids!
Featured in several magazines including Good Housekeeping, Southern Bride, InStyle and Marie Claire, you know they’re a trustworthy company. And I couldn’t agree more!

Your sash is a teal/sky-blue-ish color on your white dress. Picture your bridesmaids maybe wearing teal with white sashes…hmmm? I think it’s pretty! In case you were wondering what it would look like:

Think about it. Just get a cupcake holder or stand, then either make them yourself or ask someone else to do so…have them mix the frosting colors together using food dye, and then add to the top of each colored fake flowers which you could get from any craft store! SOOOO adorable!!!!

Pretty, isn’t it! But no cake will ever out-shine you, dear beautiful bride!
Why spend tons of money on elaborate flower centerpieces when you can make your own to give it a simple, fresh and clean look? I love this idea, putting 3-5 vases in the middle of each table, with one stem in each. Such a sweet look!
Idea found at: Do It Yourself Weddings.
Can’t find a flower girl or ring bearer? No problem! Let your doggies in on your special day…they deserve to feel loved too!
Now how sweet is that?!

“Why Marriage” -Author Unknown
Because to the depths of me, I long to love one person,
With all my heart, my soul, my mind, my body…
Because I need a forever friend to trust with the intimacies of me,
Who won’t hold them against me,
Who loves me when I’m unlikable,
Who sees the small child in me, and
Who looks for the divine potential of me…
Because I need to cuddle in the warmth of the night
With someone who thanks God for me,
With someone I feel blessed to hold…
Because marriage means opportunity
To grow in love in friendship…
Because marriage is a discipline
To be added to a list of achievements…
Because marriages do not fail, people fail
When they enter into marriage
Expecting another to make them whole…
Because, knowing this,
I promise myself to take full responsibility
For my spiritual, mental and physical wholeness
I create me,
I take half of the responsibility for my marriage
Together we create our marriage…
Because with this understanding
The possibilities are limitless.
So your dress has turquois from Da Vinci. But you love the dresses at David’s Bridal. However the turquois at David’s Bridal is off from Da Vinci? No biggie!
Why not have your girls wear headbands or jewelry in the color that matches best to the sash on your wedding dress?
For example, take your swatch to a craft store, find turquois ribbon that is very similar, and wrap & glue onto headbands for your girls to wear along with their black dresses?
Or, take that same ribbon and have them use that as the sash! Still want to bring in more turquoise? Have your girls wear jewelry that matches.
There are several ways to bring in that color, and get it pretty close, without having to purchase it at a bridal store.

While browsing one of my new favorite blogs, The Bride’s Cafe, I stumbled across these oh-so-pretty pictures of hers!
Check out the colors, the pinks, oranges, and yellows truly do work so well with the turquoise accents! The bridesmaids wore orange dresses with pink sashes, and the flower girls wore dresses in turquoise.
The perfect inspiration!

What a creative idea…add just a tad of color to your aisle runner by either painting it or adding ribbon. Cool!

While many brides focus mainly on table decor, why not draw guests’ focus up by decorating the ceiling too? I really adore these paper lantern lights, don’t you? They can add such a soft glow to any event!

I love how elegance meets casual in this lovely centerpiece! And I’m appreciating how they used the metal basket to showcase it…it really shows it off! Beautiful.

Ok, Sister! I think we need to make a trip to the craft store, buy some wooden letters, paint them & decorate them with crystal beads or something…then buy some fabric to put under the cake. The day of, throw some petals.
We can achieve this look in no time! I’m on it. Just let me know which colors! lol Man…I should start working at the craft store to get us some discounts, huh! lol

How sweet is this cake…I love the pink swirling on it! Picture it with gerbera daisies!
Ooooh and this one too…with or without the hearts? And perhaps with orange ribbon…eh, I love the pink too…it’s so hard to decide!!! lol
Oh dear, I think I just went a little cake crazy…
I could totally see this cake with pink ribbon. And gerbera daisies on top. Ya like?

Can’t find that perfect table cover or runner? Why not decorate with ribbon? I love this idea. This allows you to use the colors/patterns you love…all together, no searching, just decorating…and making it lovely!
