Dress to impress: The flower girl has now become a bridesmaid

Saturday, July 25, 2015

Hey girl!

Walking down the aisle is one of the most exciting chapter in a woman's life. All eyes on you and your eyes to the most special person in your life. It feels magical and enchanting (Yeah, I still live on my own fairytale). You wanted everything to be at its best when the day comes. I am not a married woman but I have walked down the aisle many times since I was a child. I can say that the flower girl has grown into a bridesmaid. I actually don't know what to feel but I guess, I am too dreamy while walking down the aisle feeling like I'm the star. Then suddenly in a blink of an eye, I am back on my mind and oops! I am just a bridesmaid and not the bride. I am always excited and thrilled not usually on the idea of getting married but mostly on the dress that I will wear. Of course, I wanted to walk down the aisle confidently with the most comfortable and flattering dress but it is not always my call. Being a bridesmaid, we don't always decide of what dress to wear at the wedding because sometimes, it depends on the overall theme and taste of the couple. But also during the fitting, in some cases, they will ask your opinion whether you want long or knee-length and/or sleeveless or not, something like that. Great thing if they've given you an option. Now, let see the variation of different dresses worn by the bridesmaids in a wedding and let see what your taste like.

Personally, dresses weren't my comfort style and I preferred the hippie style but I am fascinated on how dresses boosts my femininity. I am a girly girl and I consider dresses as one of my style. I don't usually wear dress on a regular basis or on a regular day out but only on the most special occasions or if the dress code forces me to. One of those special occasion is wedding where I am privileged to be one of the bridesmaids. Nowadays, the sense of style on wedding dresses focuses on elegant, casual and comfort. It is not always the traditional gown made of heavy materials which looks good but uncomfortable to wear. It is now easier to find the designs and styles of the dresses you wanted for your any special occasion because of the online market where you can see a variety of options.

If I were to choose what to wear as a bridesmaid, here are my picks from Millybridal bridesmaids dresses UK. Millybridal is a professional dress design and manufacturing company that makes variety of options of dresses in every occasion. The classic satin made dress is always very elegant looking whether it is knee-length or floor-length. It is the traditional attire we saw in many weddings. The glossy texture makes it supreme and stand out of all the rest that's why it is always on the top choice in the most special occasions like weddings. Although, I really like the royalty feel when wearing a satin made dress in the wedding sometimes, I feel uncomfortable because it makes me sweat a lot especially wearing it a very humid weather like here in the Philippines. By the way, it still feels pretty and the hassle is most likely negotiable.

Nowadays, the designs of the dresses made in satin for weddings are very competitive with modern day designs. The elegance and comfort are now made in one.

For those who are into sophisticated, sexy elegant designs to show some curves, the floor-length sheaths, a-line and v-neck goes a long way.
