Expensive Celebrity Weddings: Look Like a Million Bucks Without Spending a Million Bucks! Visit Blake and Company’s New York Wholesale Special Occasion Dress Showroom

Special Occasion Dress Showroom NYExpensive weddings mean plenty of special occasion dresses and a mother of the bride dress that is extraordinary.  One of the most expensive weddings in years took place in 2010 in New York as Chelsea Clinton and Mark Mezvinsky exchanged wedding vows.  Mother of the Bride Hillary Clinton was decked out in a gorgeous mother of the bride dress that was featured in a previous Blake and Company special occasion dress blog entry.

Mother of the Bride Dress Tips for the Wholesale Special Occasion Dress Business

Damianou Mother of the Bride DressThe Mother of the Bride has one focus when choosing a mother of the bride dress to wear to her daughter’s wedding – to look the best that she can look.  A radiant Mother of the Bride dress can make all of the difference.  The mother of the bride dress is the second most important dress at the wedding.

Mother of the bride dress shopping doesn’t have to be stressful.   It is vital to assist your clients with some sensible advice to help them shop for mother of the bride dresses that fit their personal style.

First, it is essential for the mother of the bride to accept her body for what it is.  It is a smart idea to speak with the mother of the bride openly about her body.  In this conversation it is necessary to find out which body parts to stand out and which ones to leave hidden.  In the attempt to accentuate the positives, expectations need to be realistic.  Realistic mother of the bride’s expectations make it easier to find a special occasion dress that suits her body type.

Petite mothers of the bride can greatly improve their look by selecting a special occasion dress that makes the torso or legs look longer.  Also a petite mother of the bride will do best to select a mother of the bride dress that is fitted rather than one with a lot of excess fabric.

Plus size mothers of the bride should be directed towards darker color special occasion dresses.  Plus size mothers of the bride should also try exposing some leg as it will give many women a slimmer appearance.

Mother of the Bride Dress More Anticipated than Kate Middleton’s Wedding Dress

While all of England and possibly the whole world wait for one of the most anticipated celebrity weddings of the year – new details have been released.  Kate Middleton has not announced who will design her bridal dress or the mother of the bride dress, but Palace officials have announced that Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams will preside over the April 29th, 2011 11:00am wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

While special occasion dresses for the bridal party have not been selected as of yet – it is known that the royal couple will travel from the wedding at Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace by carriage.  The festive wedding procession will take place as the carriage passes by several of London’s major landmarks.

The carriage route will go through Parliament Square, Whitehall, Horse Guards Parade and the Mall.  The route is likely to be packed with revelers and well-wishers hoping to catch a glimpse of the newlyweds.  Upon arrival at Buckingham Palace, the couple is expected to make a brief appearance on the balcony.

Once the couple greets the crowd from the balcony, next on the agenda is a star studded royal wedding reception at Buckingham Palace hosted by Queen Elizabeth II, William’s grandmother.

The guest list will be an assortment of royals, celebrities, family and friends all dressed to impress in the latest special occasion dresses of the season.  One can only imagine how many honeysuckle special occasion dresses will be in attendance.

There will be a need for several special occasion dresses to be worn on that day because Prince Charles will also host a dinner and dance for his son William and his new bride that evening at Buckingham Palace. The couple’s closest friends and family will be invited and you can bet that not one of them will be caught dead wearing the same special occasion dress that they wore to the daytime wedding reception.  This is a chance for special occasion dress wholesalers to really rack up!

Further details are to be announced as the wedding date gets closer.

You can bet that the wedding dress and wedding dress designer that Kate Middleton selects will have an impact on the fashion world – specifically the special occasion dress industry.  Here at Blake and Company, all eyes will be focused on a dress that is more important than the wedding gown – the mother of the bride dress.

To be certain that your clients look their best at the special occasions of this season, be sure to see what our dress designers have to offer.  We invite you to visit our wholesale dress New York Showroom, located at 530 7th Avenue, New York, NY 10018 or give us a call at 212-869-5959.  Our wholesale dress sales representatives would love for you to come see the amazing lines of dresses that we have on display.
