Reception Dress Trend

Reception dresses are very popular right now. Brides now a days want the comfort and style to carry over into their reception. Often times a big traditional dress is great to wear for the ceremony but hard to wear during the reception because of size and weight. Reception dresses allow a bride to enjoy the reception. Letting her be able to dance the night away and greet her guest with ease. Not to mention what bride doesn't want another excuse to buy and wear a second dress for her wedding day?

If you still want to wear your ceremony dress during the reception think about slipping into one of these dresses for the send off too, rehearsal dinner, or the engagement party. So here are some of my reception dress picks with sleeves.


 There are many options out there if you are looking for a reception dress short, long, flirty, and or fun so enjoy looking. If you find a reception dress and want it to stand out more accessories can also help complete the look. Accessories such as earrings, sash's, belts, bracelet's and necklaces can always help compliment and complete a look. Receptions are a time of celebration and to have fun so enjoy it.

So those are my tips now I'm off to more fashion adeventures,

Bridal Beauty

I thought I would take a break from the normal fashion postings and surprise you with a beauty one. Since fashion and beauty go hand and hand I thought I would share these must haves.

 Lots of brides these days seem to be opting to do their own make-up on the day of their wedding for several reasons. So if that reason is to save money, or just because you feel more comfortable doing your own make-up, you should really check out these beauty kits. They are not your normal beauty kits but they are designed for that special day.

They would also be great kits for anyone in the bridal party that might be in a lot of pictures. So here are my finds and enjoy...they also make great gifts for a bridal shower..or if you wanted to buy a special gift for your Maids, or Maid Of Honor.

       Urban Decay Kit Includes:
  • Razor Sharp Ultra-Definition Finishing Powder (3.75g mini)
  • Supercurl Curling Mascara
  • Lip Junkie Lip Gloss (3.6ml travel size)

Urban Decay Bridal Kit: Ebay , Philosophy Kit: Sephora , Sephora Kit: Sephora

I like how the last kit has a voucher to give the bride the chance to get her makeup done professionally.

I always suggest you do a trial run once before the day of your wedding on the look that you would like to have. This ensures that you will really like the look you decided on and helps you modify for anything that you might not care for.

Time to run I hear fashion styles calling my name,
