Let’s be brutally honest. As much as close friends love one another and feel honoured to be included in the bridal party, no one looks forward to bridesmaid dresses. There are just so many challenges associated with bridesmaid dresses: the style, the fit, the colour, the cost… These factors can all add up to a lot of anxiety for the bridesmaids and the bride.
So what’s a bride to do?
All in all, bridesmaid dresses can feel like a terrible burden. Of course, most brides want to have a styled and coordinated bridal party and the bridesmaid dresses are one of the most important parts of the overall wedding theme.
No two women have the same body type. We’re all different shapes and sizes, with preferences, quirks, and—inevitably—hang ups…and that’s ok. That’s part of what makes us women. We each know our own body best. We’ve grown up in this body and we know what works and what doesn’t. The thought of someone else picking a gown for you can be terrifying for most women.
It’s nearly impossible to keep everyone happy, not to mention trying to coordinate everyone’s schedules for bridesmaid dress shopping, which can be an ordeal in itself. Follow that with fittings and costly alterations, and at the end of the day, most bridesmaids end up resenting buying an expensive dress that they don’t want to ever wear again. Lovely!
With so many women unhappy about bridesmaid dresses, it’s surprising that they’re still a part of the wedding norm. However, brides are beginning to realize that their bridesmaids don’t have to wear identical gowns, and that there are some innovative new ways to coordinate their wedding party.
Thankfully, there are now gorgeous bridesmaid dresses available that every member of the wedding party will love. We’re talking about versatile, ethically produced, and beautiful dresses that are available in a wide variety of colours and that look stunning on women of all shapes and sizes. Bonus: they won’t cost an arm and a leg!
Mimetik dresses from Barcelona are ingeniously designed wrap dresses that are convertible and can be adjusted and wrapped in a number of ways. They’re available in long or short lengths, with elegant lace overlays, and in a vast array of gorgeous colours. Best of all, these gowns are truly flattering on every body. That might seem like a big claim, but you have to trust us on that one because we’ve seen dozens, maybe even hundreds, of different women of all different body types try on these dresses in our busy boutique and they are absolutely incredible. Even the most skeptical women have been surprised and delighted when they’ve tried these gowns on.
Mimetik dresses adapt to create a flattering silhouette that will suit each member of the wedding party, no matter their size. The brilliant versatility of these dresses also means they can be worn again, and in a different way each time. They’re affordable and the unique design means that they don’t require alterations. Bridesmaids are thrilled because they really do end wearing the dress again and again, unlike most traditional bridesmaid dresses which end up pushed to the back of the closet. It’s an absolute win-win situation.
We can say a lot of great things about Mimetik dresses but you really have to see them for yourselves to see just how amazing they are. Why not come into Second Dance and have a look for yourself? Book an appointment today for a demo and to outfit your bridal party.
