It's that dreaded time of year for so many of us...WEDDING SEASON...Here at Stylists in the City we thought we would add to our recent styling of a girlfriend as a guest of a wedding and help those of us who are...BRIDESMAIDS.
Ahhhh... the tradition, the tears, the... uh... dress?
Many a bridezilla has lost her head and put her friends in horrible dresses, matching shoes and made them all look alike and... terrible. So... here's how to make the day have a look all your own without going off the reservation and disappointing the bride.
#1 - stear her towards JCrew's bridesmaid styles - they are easy and something you may even wear again, plsu they're pretty easy on the budget - the one above is $215 - and as a bonus POCKETS!
#2 - ACCESSORIZE - try this season's hot necklace - the bib (as featured in a previous SITC post), it makes a statement but it still pretty so as to not distract from the bride! Where it alone with no other jewelry or add a large cocktail ring if you just must gob on accessories...
#3 - ask to wear your own shoes - it saves money, you'll be more comfortable and it's a way to add your personal style to a bridesmaid dress without being too noticeable (in case your bride is the "matchy, matchy" sort)
