Why Shopping For Your Wedding Dress With Bridesmaids Is The Best

 In Dresses, Makeup, and Hair, Styled Shoot

Wedding dress shopping is a once in a lifetime experience for the bride. Something she has dreamed of her entire life. Seeing herself in the mirror in a white dress and veil. It’s enough to make the tears come on thinking about it. That’s why having her favorite girls by her side is a must!

The Vow Boutique

Bride’s also need a reliable dress shop where they feel right at home. Thankfully for those in Morgantown, WV we have The Vow Boutique. Owner Kristen DeMedici was kind enough to let us host a styled shoot in her shop. It was a vision of all things Rock N’ Roll.

Rock N’ Roll Style

When Dominique got engaged she knew her two best friends would be by her side. Meeting in college, their love of fashion is what brought them together. The three women’s sense of style is similar with a love of leather jackets, ripped jeans, and killer heels.

Using wedding dress shopping as an excuse to dress up, Dominique is ready to ask her friends to stand by her side. Earlier that week she found old 45 records at the thrift shop. She enlisted the help of Paper Hearts Invitations to create “Will You Be My Bridesmaid” tokens. Another keepsake from the day is the VIP Access passes for the bridesmaids.

Playing Dress Up

After selecting a few dresses, the bride is ready to show off a few looks. With bubbly in hand, the bridesmaids wait in excitement to see the blushing bride-to-be. Later, they pick a few bridesmaids dresses to get in on the fun. Creating an experience that surely won’t be forgotten anytime soon.

Tips for Wedding Dress Shopping

Be careful with Pinterest. Kristen says, “I see brides get hung up with a Pinterest dress and they can’t commit to anything else. A lot of times the dresses are custom, only available in other countries, or are ten times your budget.” She says it can cause you to stress! So stay open minded about what dress you’ll end up with for your big day.

Choose a few to start with at the bridal shop and go from there. Things you like in a magazine might not look the way you thought they would. Trying on different styles will help you find the right one for your body shape.

Most importantly, if you love a dress and your entourage is giving you a hard time, go with your gut. You’ll know when it’s the right one. Walking down the aisle, you’ll be the most beautiful sight in the world no matter what. Pick the dress YOU love.

    You ladies looked like you had a lot of fun shopping for a wedding dress. I would too! I hope I get to go with my bridesmaids as well (wether or not I find THE dress). It would be a great memory we share together.

    I actually missed out on this. We had a very small wedding and my dress was less than $40 at a department store.

    I’m so glad I shopped for my dress with my Nana. It was such a great memory and something I especially cherish now that she is gone.
