“Bridesmaid dresses are so expensive and I’ve spent close to $600 in every wedding I’ve been in. I think all bridesmaids hope that their dress will fit without needing alterations since that’s usually another expense to add to something that you will most likely, despite all efforts, only wear once. I think this is one of the reasons why so many brides are choosing the ‘pick your own option’ — to make it easier for girls with different bodies and budgets.”
This article is a liar. The reason that wedding sizes are different from regular American sizes isn’t that we’re “more athletic” or any such nonsense. We’re as sedentary as we’ve always been, if not more. Also, that’s stupid, because if we were more athletic, we’d have smaller waists, not bigger. The real reason the sizes are different is because of vanity sizing. (look it up.) Marilyn Monroe used to wear a size 12 on average, but her measurements would correspond to a modern-day size 6 (size 4 if you shop at the gap and other “generous” sizers). You see, over time, clothing manufacturers have assigned smaller and smaller numbers to the same measurements to try and flatter their customers. I remember when I was a teen I wore a women’s size 5/6. Now, 20 years later, I’m 20 lbs heavier, but I still wear a women’s 5/6. I haven’t gotten any more “athletic”, believe me. And I try on my size 5/6 pants from the 90s and I can’t even get them over my thighs, much less zip or button them.
Lace wedding dresses combine the most romantic day of your life with the most romantic of fabrics. The art of lace-making can be traced all the way back to the 15th century, but lace wedding gowns saw a dramatic spike in popularity after Kate Middleton wore a long sleeve lace wedding dress in 2011. Since then, countless brides have dreamed of wearing elegant wedding dresses with lace accents. For a vintage look, consider ivory lace to lend your gown old-fashioned charm. For a more modern style, try on a lace mermaid gown. A short lace wedding dress can be rich in retro appeal, especially when paired with a bold lip and statement shoes! Once you’ve found the perfect lace gown, add sparkly bridal jewelry to catch the light, or double down on texture with a beaded bridal clutch or a pair of lace wedding shoes.

One of 2018’s biggest trends is fitted sleeve gowns. There are so many ways for sleeves to give an appearance of luxury when made with lace or other materials and augmented with pearls or beading. The sleeves work best when they stand out in contrast to the gown material, or they are an extension to another element in the front of the dress, such as a lace illusion neck.
