In planning the dream wedding, most brides start by selecting a totally awesome groom.  The next step of course is choosing a dress!!  The biggest What to Wear question of all- no outfit selection will ever receive as much thought as a wedding dress!

I was out shopping with a friend this weekend and we passed a bridal shop.  My 3 yr old daughter came to a halt in front of that window.  Her whole little face was just lit up.  Wow the ultimate princess dress!!  Trying on glamorous gowns is super easy and so fun!  Choosing dresses for your bridesmaids . . . not so much!

The challenge of finding a dress to suit several body types and please a variety of opinions is probably second only to narrowing down a guest list.  Neither is easy!  Polyvore, a great bride's resource, is a stylists playground.  You can browse many dresses: by color, by price, or a number of options.  You can also view clothing inspiration boards created by other people helping you narrow down the look you want.  You can even create your own Polyvore boards to share with friends.  This will help you share your ideas with friends, esp. long distance bridesmaids.  Below is a sample What to Wear Bridesmaid inspiration board created by Tender Look Photography on Polyvore.

Wedding Planning Tool

Have you bookmarked a ton of favorite sites but now looking at that long list and you have no idea what the links are for?  Pinterest is a visual bookmarking site that allows you to "pin" images to boards you create.  Returning to the board later, you can click on the image and be linked directly to the original site.  This feature is great for planning a wedding.  "Pin" bridesmaids dress to a board.  You can then compare prices, looks, accessories, and your girls can view the information all online sharing comments on each choice!  Planning a wedding while including the opinions of out-of-town girlfriends is much easier this way.  Below is a peek at my wedding planning board for black accents.  Pinterest is by invitation only - if you need an invite, just let me know!  I'd be happy to help.
