My pick for this week is for the whimsical, princess bride’s maids. Why? Because it is from Alfred Angelo’s Disney Maidens collection! Yay! Alfred Angelo has Disney-inspired collections for brides, maids and flower girls, plus a dreamy selection of veils. While the designs are definitely not costume-y or cartoonish, they do have a fabulous fairy-tale vibe!
This simple asymmetrical dress becomes breathtaking with the addition of ruffles cascading down one shoulder. Any bridal party will love the look and feel of royalty in this cocktail-length dress. Shown in the color “Loves First Blush,” this gown is offered in all 50 “Dream in Color” shades, so finding a perfect match for your overall color scheme should not be an issue.
Let’s talk styling. This dress has a dramatic look due to the side ruffle accent, so have your maids go easy on the jewelry! Maybe gift them with matching sparkling hair clips so they can wear their hair down, with just a few pieces clipped back. Allow them to create an “unstructured” hair look to create a contrast to the boldness of the dress. Another idea? Pick a fabulous statement shoe to either match the dress’s tone or in a neutral metallic. The shoe will obviously be highly visible here, so make a statement!
