Any bride (or woman, for that matter) would tell you that they have imagined their dream wedding dress at least once. Now, on Brides.com, you can test-drive that dress to see if it can be a reality.

The new Wedding Makeover tool on Brides.com has an extensive library of wedding gowns that you (or a virtual model that shares your shape) can “try on” before you head out in search of your dream gown. You can also get a head start in dressing your bridesmaids for the big day.

No makeover is complete without a little hair and makeup-and, the Brides.com Wedding Makeover delivers with a plethora of hairstyles and makeup shades you can test out. Then, print out your complete look and hit the stores (or salons).

Whether you’re mapping out your wedding day look, or simply looking to have a little wedding fun, the Brides.com Wedding Makeover tool is a surefire way to make sure that, on this day, you look absolutely fabulous.

First, the fun stuff: Utterly Engaged has released Issue 15! The theme: Sugar & Spice. The issue has fashion and decor advice for demure and daring brides alike, along with sweet and sizzling honeymoon tips. Be sure to take a look!

Also, I apologize again for being absent; my work life has picked up and I haven’t been able to blog as often. I promise you another post by the end of the week.

Happy 2011 everyone! I hope everyone had fun ringing in the new year.

With the new year comes a new resource for high-fashion brides. Net-A-Porter has launched a new wedding boutique that carries gowns, veils, accessories, shoes, and fashions for the bridesmaids and mother of the bride (and groom) created by top fashion houses such as Alberta Ferretti, Issa, and Valentino. Don’t let the labels intimidate you though, as all items come in a variety of styles and price points. Fabulous!

Sorry for the lack of posts; even at the end of the year I still have a million things on my plate.

Now that I have some time, I would like to thank you all for your continued support. I look forward to writing even more in 2011. Hopefully, some real weddings will also be featured-but, it’s up to you to submit your story along with photos to chicistawedding@gmail.com.

See you next year!

Remember my post on Zazzle.com, especially the part about how it’s a great resource for creating DIY invitations for a low price?

Well, I have decided to open up my own Zazzle invitation shop! So far, my collection is limited, but I plan of expanding it in the coming months. Until then, please visit my shop and let me know what you think so far.

I’m very impressed with Nonpareil’s latest issue. Issue 4 is devoted to wedding decor and fashion inspired by the big (and small) screen. Whether you’re looking to throw a Mad Men-inspired affair, have a face fit for Breakfast at Tiffany’s or bring Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland to life, this issue has something for you.

Get Married is a multimedia experience dedicated to showing brides how to feature their personal style in their wedding. Their influence can be felt online at Get Married.com, on their television show that airs every Saturday at 9:30 AM on WETV, or in the Get Married Magazine. I just flipped through the online edition of their Summer 2010 issue-and, I am thoroughly impressed! The cover photo showcases the results of their design challenge for event designer Jon Buick from Xquisite Events, a decor and floral design company based in Boca Raton, FL . To see how he came up with this and for a plethora of fashion, decor, and gift ideas, please check it out.

Bonus: if you sign up for the site (it’s free!) you’ll receive a complimentary copy of the magazine.

Tastefully Tropical

Despite our best intentions to stay on budget, some brides can’t help but make a splurge purchase for the big day. With that being said, what better way exists to spend a little extra cash than on a special pair of designer shoes? I’m already a fan of the work of esteemed designer Stuart Weitzman, but when I saw his new bridal shoe collection I nearly hit the roof. Each shoe is gorgeous in its own right, from classic pumps to daring stilettos, some sprinkled with rhinestones for extra glamour. Weitzman’s bridal collection are sure to make classic and modern brides alike fall head over heels in love.
