Pop-Up Party for Brides + Exclusive Giveaway! [Win Dresses for Your Bridal Party]
7 months ago 0 Comments
On Saturday I had the pleasure of attending a fabulous pop-up party for brides and their girls, hosted by BridesMade! Founders Mallory McKewen and Kaleah Baker are two forward thinking, innovative women who are changing how we do weddings, dress by dress! The party was complete with hors d’oeuvres, sugary treats and mimosas!
The event took place at the elegant Walper Hotel and also showcased a handful of other fabulous wedding companies.
I met with both Cofounders and chatted with Mallory about what inspired their company, along with some of the finer details which I am thrilled to share with you today!
Men have been renting tuxedos and suits for years, but women often find themselves dishing out loads of cash to wear a bridesmaid dress they only show off once. Sometimes it’s nice to have a keepsake frock from your friend’s wedding that you can alter later on for another event, but there are many situations where it just hangs in your closet for years before donating it to a thrift shop.
This is something Mallory first noticed when she used to do pageants. After the event she was left with a beautiful dress and no where else to wear it. After friends began to get married and she was asked to be in their wedding parties she realized that this was a dilemma many women faced! Thus BridesMade was born – bridesmaid dresses that can be rented to women of all shapes and sizes!
Last year was spent figuring out how to create dresses that could be easily made to fit as many different body types as possible. The dresses themselves have adjustable features in the bust, waist and hip areas along with a detachable skirt to customize the height options.
Currently there are 12 colours in the collection which is continually growing! There is some flexibility if a bride is set on a colour not offered – the girls at BridesMade are eager to work with brides to make the vision for their bridal party come to life.
How It Works!
You simply email firstname.lastname@example.org the 4 body measurements for each member of the bridal party – bust, waist, hip and height! From there a dress can be adjusted to be the perfect fit for each of your bridesmaids and can be shipped directly to you!
Today I have teamed up with BridesMade for a giveaway offering free dress rentals to one bride looking to dress her bridal party in style. Simply share this post and tag my Facebook page, along with the quote, “I want to win for my wedding in ________(month/year of wedding)!” Eg. I want to win for my wedding in June 2017!
Winner will be selected on Wednesday, January 18, 2017 at 8pm EST.
Good Luck! xo
