Here comes the bride! Oh wait, not yet! There’s still so much to do! You’ve got the love of your life, your bridesmaid gang and your (highly opinionated) mother, but what about the dress? Whether you’re a future bride-to-be, bridesmaid, or proud Momma, check out The Wedding Shop for contemporary and traditional dresses along with our favorite must-have accessories.
Contemporary: Skip the ‘something old’ and find your something new with the MM Couture by Miss Me little lace dress. This dress takes your wedding style to new lengths with an edgy short hem and cutout back. Even though this dress may not be the best choice for cold-weather ceremonies, this could be the dress if you prefer something trendy for the warmer seasons, as the soon-to-be Mrs. Antcliffe would agree.
Earrings: Create dainty demure with the Nadri Pearl Pave drop earrings. The best part? These earrings are a versatile choice no matter what role you play for the big day!
Customer Appreciation: “We gave these as gifts, along with a similar necklace, to the bridesmaids in my daughter’s summer wedding and the girls loved them!” – Debs, TX
Shoes: A shorter dress requires the proper shoe soulmate. Our recommendation? Zip into the Gianni Bini Flame cutout sandals— featuring plenty of eye-catching jewel detail.
Customer Appreciation: “This shoe is gorgeous on and you can dress them up or down. They are super comfortable and [I] did not want to take them off at the store. These are going to be perfect for my wedding day. So excited to wear them!” -Bride-to-be, GA
Traditional: If sticking to a belle-of-the-ball dress is more of your thing, the Adrianna Papell gown is an ideal choice for you. Feminine from head-to-toe, you’ll fall in love with this strapless sweetheart neckline and rosette-detailed skirt. Simple-yet-stunning styling allows you to customize this dress to your personal tastes.
Earrings: Like this bridal dress, the Nadri crystal drop earrings offer a hint of glimmer in classic styling. Psst, they also make a great bridesmaid gift for the ladies! Just ask Kristen from Chicago, Illinois.
Customer Appreciation: “I bought these for myself and bridesmaids for my wedding and they were the perfect length and had just the right amount of sparkle. They were exactly what I was looking for.” -Kristen , IL
Shoes: Arriving in gold, black and silver, the Antonio Melani Evette dress sandals offer everything for a classy lady such as yourself— sophistication and shine.
Customer Appreciation: “I’m in love with these shoes! Best dressy sandals ever!!” -Tampa, FL
Contemporary: Just because it’s the bride’s big day doesn’t mean a mother of the bride (or groom) should sacrifice her elegance. This Adrianna Papell dress offers that just-right glamour in a flattering silhouette with illuminating bead coverage. Check out what Sally had to say about this sequined stunner for her daughter’s wedding!
Customer Appreciation: “Bought this dress from my daughter’s wedding. Love it!”-Sally, MS
Traditional: Cascading asymmetric tiers create fluid movement while slimming your frame in this Ignite Evenings gown. The matching wrap provides sheer coverage without looking matronly. These subtle sequins won’t distract from the natural beauty of the dress. Cheyenne from Tennessee loved wearing this dress at a black tie wedding, but many customers have loved this dress for other formal events as well. Talk about versatile!
Customer Appreciation: “I bought this dress for my daughter’s beach wedding in May. The color is perfect for her color scheme. After trying many dresses this is the first my husband liked on me.” -Lil, VA
Contemporary: Beaded art-deco-inspired design and an effortless fit lend modern glam to this Adrianna Papell dress. As a bridesmaid, finding something that is equally flattering and stylish can be a tricky task. This blouson bodice offers easier movement without a skin-tight feel. Not to mention this taupe/pink shade is a neutral color any woman would look forward to donning for the wedding.
Customer Appreciation: “I love this dress. I think the designer pulled it from stores. [T]he last store carrying it was Dillard’s and I was so happy to be able to purchase it before it was pulled from their store! Love this dress. Great fabric. Stunning.” -Beth, IN
Traditional: If you’re looking for something a little more traditional, the JS Collections Bridesmaid dress features the right blend of feminine floral in plenty of color crush chiffon options. The ruched bodice creates a tighter illusion (aka slimming without suffocating), while the rosette shoulder strap draws the eye to a bare neckline and frames the face. This dress is also the perfect silhouette for side buns!
Customer Appreciation: “LOVED IT.” – G, TX
