Charlotte's Favourite Things!

Hello Ladies!

So excited to do my first blog of Charlotte's Favourite Things and to share with you some of my *guilty pleasures* when it comes to weddings and events! 

This week I'm going to be touching on something I feel most brides struggle with... finding the PERFECT dress for all your beautiful bridesmaids! Yes, you love each and every one of them dearly, but when it comes to planning a wedding, sometimes these lovely friends of yours can get a little picky with the dress you choose for them.

Now it's one thing to look online and see a breath-taking picture of a wedding party who look magnificent all in the same dress... however, did you ever notice that most of these women are all the same size and shape? I don't know about you ladies, but that isn't always the case! So finding the "perfect" dress for all your girls now has just become a little bit harder.

But don't panic! Here is MY favourite thing when it comes to bridesmaids dresses for the modern bride.

"Twist" or "wrap" dresses are the latest fashion for getting the most styles out of one simple purchase! Not only are these amazing twist dresses good for differentiating between bridesmaids without them looking too different but they also are made of a more flexible fabric to help accentuate the best parts of each bridesmaid you have selectively chosen.


With most brides now-a-days, they like the idea of each bridesmaids looking a little different from each other, however, these twist dresses not only do that but they also help each bridesmaid pick what style makes them feel the best in their own skin!

Some girls who are full-figured have a difficult time wearing strapless or shoulder-revealing dresses because they feel like they're always having to pull up "the girls" all night. And vice versa with girls who are on the smaller-chested side, they feel too congested on the top if there are heavy straps or cap-sleeves holding the bust area up. 

As you can see ladies, this is a simple solution with these twist dresses as they come in so many different styles that you personalize to each bridesmaid! So you can have one bridesmaid with a two shoulder strap and the other bridesmaid with a strapless top to the exact same dress! How amazing! 

Working in Bridal Retail, I have seen so many girls come in and out looking for something that is going to fit and suit every one of their needs, but sometimes it is nearly impossible to make everyone happy. However, I have seen this type of dress go such a long way with a variety of girls (who also LOVE the idea of re-wearing these dresses for another occasion) and I would recommend every bridal party give it a try!

Keep up the happy planning!

I couldn't wait to blog about this one!!!  

It's always great to see people doing what they love!!! In this case it's family!!!

My cousin is working for a company in New York that provides a unique way to exchange a bridesmaid dress after the wedding for a new "Little Black Dress".

No more bridesmaids dresses hanging out in the back of you closet anymore!

Bridesmaid Dresses

Newlymaid offers a way for ladies to trade in something "old" for something "new".

This new service brought to us by The Dessy Group also has an added benefit.  The dresses traded in are either broken down and used to create new yarn which will be incorporated into future Newlymaid dresses or donated to organizations that can distribute them to people in need.  How great is that!

 Check out the below videos for more about how this fabulous idea works!!
