“Magic” Mother Of The Bride and Groom Dresses

There are “dresses” and there are “magic dresses“. These are styles that are often difficult to convince the customers to try on but, once she does she loses 10 pounds, gets taller and feels so amazing she has to have the dress. This is why Mother of the Brides and Mother of the Grooms have to have an open mind when shopping. The sales people in the stores that work with clients have seen everything and really know what is going to flatter all body types. Here are just a few of our “magic” dresses from Daymor, Damianou, Ideas by Barbara, Scaravelli, Sia Sia, JSS Knitwear and VM by Mori Lee.

Damianou Dresses the Mother of the Bride and Groom in “Jumping the Broom”

We were so excited to discover that both the Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom in the movie “Jumping the Broom” are wearing Damianou! Angela Bassett and Loretta Divine both look fantastic. Damianou is so easy to wear, is dressy without beading and has the vintage look that Mothers of the Bride and Groom are looking for today.

Kate Middleton’s Wedding Gown Designer Announced? Who is the Designer of Kate Middelton’s Wedding Dress?

who-is-kate-middletons-wedding-dress-designerThe Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton is just weeks away and there is still much speculation as to who designed the wedding dress.  It seems that the Royal Family still has not confirmed it publicly, but insiders think that Libélula designer Sophie Cranston is the special occasion dress designer of choice.  Middleton has worn other Cranston designs in the past, and may have chosen Cranston for what some are calling the the most influential special occasion dress of the century.

Some special occasion dress insiders speculated that the designer Kate Middleton chose would be either Sarah Burton, Bruce Oldfield or Alice Temperley.  Here at Blake and Company, we were rooting for Daymor Couture, Damianou, Ideas by Barbara, SIA SIA, Scaravelli, JSS Knitwear or VM by Mori Lee

It is also predicted that there will be more than one dress just in case something happens to the first dress.  It is speculated that the designer has not been officially named is to protect the designer from a media frenzy.  You just can’t pay for that kind of publicity in the world of special occasion dress designers.

It is a huge responsibility to create such an unforgettable gown that is certain to be seen by billions around the world.  This special occasion dress is sure to be emulated and immortalized in royal and fashion history.

There are only 2 weeks left before the Royal Wedding and the fashion world waits with baited breath for the special occasion dress of the century to be unveiled.  Bridal industry and special occasion dress insiders predict Middleton’s gown to be replicated many times over as soon as the world gets its first glimpse.

Special Occasion Dress Tips by Blake and Company: New York’s Premier Mother of the Bride and Special Occasion Wholesale Dress Showroom

special occasion dresses nycHave you recently been invited to a wedding?  Spring and Summer weddings are upon us and guests must decide on what to where.  When selecting a special occasion dress there are a few tips to keep in mind.  First, let’s remember the cardinal rule: Never wear a white special occasion dress to a wedding unless you are the bride.

Okay, now that we got the obvious rule out of the way, some of the other tips may be a bit more subtle.  Do you think it’s a good idea to wear a black special occasion dress to a summer wedding?  It’s not.  Be bold, don’t bother playing it safe.  Black special occasion dresses can be used for a night on the town, but be bold and instead choose a bright special occasion dress to a summer wedding.

If you really want to make a hit this season, try a long, soft, floral print special occasion dress for a chic and trendy.  Blake and Company has many different special occasion dresses on display at our New York City Wholesale Special Occasion Dress Showroom.  We are the official dress showroom of Daymor Couture, Damianou, Ideas by Barbara, SIA SIA, Scaravelli, JSS Knitwear and VM by Mori Lee.

Special Occasion Dress Blog: Wedding of the Century: Update

Mother of the Bride DressesDo you have your special occasion dress ready for the wedding of the century?  Well you’d better keep your eyes on the mailbox… It has been announced that Britain’s Prince William and bride-to-be Kate Middleton have mailed out the wedding invites to their hotly anticipated royal wedding.  If you are one of the approximately 1,900 guests lucky enough to have received an invite, then you’d better start looking for a dress.

Daymor Couture special occasion dress collection is sure to have something to offer to even the most fashion conscious shoppers.  As you walk St. James’s Palace why not try out a Scaravelli special occasion dress?  While mingling with European royalty and diplomats a Damianou special occasion dress would be a wise choice.

It is unclear as to whether or not Elton John, a friend of Lady Diana or Kanye West, a favorite of Prince William will receive invites.

It has been announced that David Beckham and his wife Victoria are officially on the royal guest list. One can only imagine that beautiful special occasion dress that Victoria will select.

If you don’t end up getting an invite, that doesn’t mean you can’t take your special occasion dress to the streets.  Ordinary well-wishers will be allowed to watch Middleton arrive at Westminster Abbey and leave with her new husband, Prince William in a horse-drawn carriage in a parade through the center of London to Buckingham Palace.

If you don’t want to make the trip to London, you can join the millions who will watch the ceremony and celebrations on live television.

It is rumored that there will be a giant screen installed in Trafalgar Square.

There will be plenty of special occasion dresses on hand as over 600 guests will attend a lunch reception at Buckingham Palace hosted by the queen, and 300 guests will attend the formal wedding dinner and dance at the palace.

Even if you don’t receive an invitation, remember that Blake and Company’s New York Wholesale Dress showroom has plenty of great deals on a variety of beautiful wholesale dresses!  Come and see our mother of the bride and mother of the groom dress collections for yourself!
