Style Guide: How to Choose the Best Wedding Dress Silhouette for Your Body Type

27 Oct 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Dresses

There are so many dresses and so many styles. You might start to feel overwhelmed seeing all those gowns because you don’t know where to start. Don’t worry; most brides feel this way, which is why dress shopping, while the most exciting and emotional part of the preparation, is also the most dreaded task on the checklist.

Before you start your search, one thing to understand is that we all come in different sizes and shapes so what looks good on your best friend might not be the best style for you. Knowing what kind of silhouettes are most flattering for your body type will make this process a lot easier. A good rule of thumb is to accentuate your favorite body part whether it’s your beautiful décolleté, small waist or your womanly curves. Also, keep in mind: this source is an excellent guideline, but it’s just that—go with the dress that you love and feel most confident and beautiful in! After all, you will be the one walking down the aisle in this dress.

The different body types:

  • Straight: long and lean, little to no curves
  • Pear: narrow shoulders, small chest, small waist, curvy hips
  • Hourglass: curvy in all the right places (bust and hips), small waist
  • Circle: narrow shoulders, slender legs, wide around the stomach
  • Inverted Triangle: Broad shoulders, chesty, small waist, no hips

The different dress silhouettes:

  • Ball gown: princess style that poofs out from waist down. Perfect for:Pear/Circle body type – this style hides the stomach and hips, while accentuating neckline.

  • A-line: similar to ball gown but skirt is more flared than poofy. Perfect for:Straight/Pear/Hourglass/Circle/Inverted Triangle body type – this style is flattering on most brides.

With these tips, I hope you will use it as a reference while shopping for your perfect dress but remember that it is only a guideline. Some additional tips that’ll enhance your experience is to go with your makeup and hair done. It doesn’t have to be professionally done, but it’ll help you imagine what you’ll look like on the big day. And remember to have fun! Enjoy these special moments – good luck!

Wedding-Planning Jobs for the Mother of the Groom

27 Oct 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding News

Wedding-Planning Jobs for the Mother of the GroomThough her role is secondary to the bride’s mom, the mother of the groom can still make a solid contribution to your wedding prep to take some stress off you. (Plus, getting her involved is a solid way to get your relationship with your future mother in law off to a good start!)

Figure out the vendor tips.
Though tips aren’t mandatory, they are customary; they’re also the way to acknowledge anyone who went above and beyond what was expected. If you’re not much of a numbers person, ask his mom to do the math. (Consult our tipping chart to find out how much to give to who.)

Stock the getting-ready room.
She can put her motherly instinct to good use by making sure there’s plenty of drinks and snacks on hand. This is so that the bride and her girls don’t pass out from hunger or dehydration as they’re getting hair and makeup done and getting dressed, which will take hours. No need for heavy, sleep-inducing foods — better choices are fresh fruit, vegetables and dip, and light sandwiches.

Put the wedding-day emergency bag together. 
Aspirin, tampons, needle and thread — these are just a few of the crucial items she’ll need to gather. The bag could be customized so it’s based on the wedding’s location or time of day.

Assembling the favors.
From bedazzling the gift tags to tying bags with ribbon, the favors can be labor-intensive. The MOG’s help will be especially needed if the Bridesmaids, traditionally the favor wranglers, can’t help out. If you’re handling the work too, it’ll give you time to chat one-on-one.

Picking up out-of-towners.
If many guests will be flying in for the wedding, several drivers will be needed at different times and days to fetch them. So if she’s willing and able, ask her to put on her chauffeur cap, fill the gas tank and head to the airport. There’s a wedding on the way!

Top 22 Glittery Gold Wedding Cakes for 2016 trends

25 Oct 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Cakes

Metallic colors are a huge wedding trend and glittery gold is my absolute favorite one. These cake tiers were painted a lustrous gold hue (using edible paint, of course), and then accented with some other charming elements. While the designs could certainly work for a glamorous wedding in an opulent ballroom or historic estate, it would also complement a more modern celebration in a raw-space venue like a loft or art gallery. Let’s check out these glamorous gold wedding cakes and get inspired.

Mother of the Bride Speech: How to Write a Wedding Speech for your Daughters Special Day

25 Oct 2016 Posted by trubridal in Mother of Bride

You’re a very lucky mom if your daughter asks you to give a Mother of the Bride speech. This opportunity is a once-in-a-lifetime one, so be sure you make it as perfect as possible. Follow these steps to make the best Mother of the Bride speech ever. We have hints and tips to lead you every step of the way so you don’t miss anything vital. Your daughter will have tears in her eyes by the time you’re through, and will know that her decision to include you in the toasts was a good one. Ultimately, this speech is meant to encapsulate the love you have for your daughter, so as long as you make your Mother of the Bride speech full of love and well-wishes, you’ve done your job.

Mother of the Bride Speech: How to Write a Wedding Speech for your Daughter's Special Day

1. Thank your daughter for letting you speak. Not everyone loves sitting through a host of speeches, so a lot of brides and grooms try to keep it to the maid of honor and the best man. Clearly, your daughter wants you to be one of the special people to toast at your wedding, which says something about your relationship with each other.

2. Thank the audience for coming. Even if you took care of the financials of the wedding, or even the planning, and you feel they should be thanking you, don’t be worried. You will be thanked. However, the reception wouldn’t happen without the couple’s closest friends and family showing up, so be sure to thank them in your Mother of the Bride speech for spending this special day with the happy couple and make them feel welcome.

3. Tell your daughter you love her. You do this every day, seven days a week already, but today is the day she wants to hear it the most. After all, this Mother of the Bride speech is about how much you love your girl, in the end. She is your ray of sunshine, and the audience couldn’t possibly fully understand your love for her, but she will understand, and she will appreciate you reaffirming this.

4. Don’t embarrass the bride. You probably thought the days of “Mom, you’re embarrassing me!” were over when she graduated high school, but this rule applies during the Mother of the Bride speech. Anything you say of your daughter, especially when she was younger, is bound to be slightly blush-worthy, so just ask the bride if you can mention a certain story if you’re not sure. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.

5. Wish your daughter well. There are a variety of ways to do this in the Mother of the Bride speech. If you’re religious, you can do this in the form of a short prayer, or if you’re literary, you can write her a poem. Find whichever way captures your relationship best to send your daughter off to her new, happy life with with the same warmth and tenderness with which you helped her lead her old one.

6. Welcome the groom to the family. Like it or not, this man is officially a part of your family. And, let’s be honest, if your darling daughter chose him, you probably do like him. In your Mother of the Bride speech, give him a warm welcome – and remind him how lucky he is to have a bride like your daughter. Don’t ever let him forget.

7. Give a toast. Toast the audience, toast the celebration, but most importantly, toast the happy couple. A marriage blossomed today, and that deserves a blessing. There is no one better to give it than the woman who helped make the bride the best she could be and stood with her for her entire life.

 

Mother of the Bride Duties

As your daughter’s big day gets closer, you’ll want to make sure you know the Mother of the Bride duties. The maid of honor handles a lot of the planning to help out the bride, but moms can have their fair share of tasks as well.

1. Be supportive and encouraging when helping your daughter find a Wedding Dress. While some brides are overjoyed by shopping for hours on end for the perfect dress, you know your daughter best, and it can turn into a stressful search.

2. Research family traditions that have been incorporated into relatives’ wedding ceremonies. You can also find old family heirlooms that can be passed down to your daughter on her most special day.

3. Be a backup contact for caterers, florists, and other services. If the bride has a rehearsal or appointment and cannot take a call or another appointment, be there for her when you can. Just make sure you’ve communicated with her on what she wants. You don’t want to make a decision about, say, flower colors that she hasn’t approved.

10 Things Every Mother Of The Bride Should Know

25 Oct 2016 Posted by trubridal in Mother of Bride
 Every bride at one point or another will come into conflict with their mother during wedding planning (trust us). Even if she is your best friend, your pseudo-wedding planner, or your right-hand woman for every decision, you will clash at some point. Even the mothers that prefer to stay in the background will have opinions. So what do mothers of the bride need to know? We rounded up 10 of the best tips from brides about what every mother should remember during the planning process through the wedding day. Hint: pass this along (nicely!) to your dear old mother.

Shining Moments

1. This is your daughter’s moment to shine. Not yours. This doesn’t mean you can’t look fabulous, but a sexy, strapless, body-con gown is probably not the best idea. You are playing a central role on the day, but your daughter is the star. Elegant and classic are the right words to describe your look and attitude. Even if you dislike certain details (like your daughter’s sexy, strapless gown), keep it to yourself. Remember: compliments and smiles!

1. This is your daughter's moment to shine. Not yours.
2. It is inappropriate to wear white, cream, or ivory. Mothers of the bride, do not even think about wearing a color in/near/around the whites on your daughter’s special day. It is totally inappropriate and unkind. She is the princess in white and no one should be close to her wedding gown color on the day. Need some guidance? Shop MoB dresses here.

3. The Bride and Groom are running the show. Some mothers tend to be a little controlling and/or overbearing but on the wedding day, mothers need to know who is in charge. The bride and groom are the gatekeepers of all final decisions leading up to the wedding and throughout the day (or a designated professional, like a wedding coordinator). Unless you have been asked to run something, stay out of the way. For example: Thinking about surprising them with the family dog at the ceremony? Not without their sign off

4. Learn to pick and choose your battles wisely. Some traditions are nearer and dearer to your heart than your daughters. So if there is something you must see or do on the wedding day, like a Chuppa, confirmation during a catholic service, or even a Hungarian tea (true story), pick ONE that is a must. It will be seen with more importance and your daughter can’t say no to your one request, right? Just like the bride has to pick and choose her battles, so should you.
Learn to pick and choose your battles wisely.
5. Get to know the in-laws. This is your daughter’s new family and in this day and age, the mother of the groom may be just as involved as the bride’s mother (or would like to be) when it comes to planning the big day. Especially when budgets are getting split. Brides, make sure both mothers feel included! How about a lunch date for the ladies to discuss the wedding details?
Get to know the in-laws.
6. Be supportive, no matter what. Even if your daughter is turning into bridezilla (which they sometimes do), mothers need to stay poised, calm, and collected. It is your job to be the pillar of stability during this crazy time and your daughterswill want someone who can both help them make the big decisions and keep their cool when things go awry. We can’t promise it will be easy, but please try for the bride!
Get to know the in-laws.
7. Offer to help, but only what you are truly willing to do. You should only offer what you want and can do. If you have a full-time job, maybe volunteering to meet with florists mid-week is a bad idea. Or if you have a special talent in table decorations or paper goods, offer to lend a hand here. Don’t offer your help on items that you have no interest in! And certainly don’t fill your schedule with more than you can handle. We know you want to be involved, just do it wisely.
Offer to help, but only what you are truly willing to do.
8. Be open about the guest list. We know tradition states that mom and dad are hosting the party (i.e. paying for it) and therefore, the guest list should be decided by them. Not anymore. For this generation, the bride and groom are normally the ones in control of the almighty guest list. You should abolsutely have a say in whose invited (and how many), but does the great-aunt you’ve never met need to come? Or those ‘friends’ you haven’t spoken to in ten years? No. Be reasonable here.
Be open about the guest list.
9. Offer your wedding gown, but don’t force it. We know you may have been saving your Wedding Dress for your daughter ‘some day’, but styles and fashions have evolved. You should definitely make the offer, but please don’t be offended if the bride (politely) says no. Maybe offer the veil? Or perhaps a piece of the dress can be used, like lace? Seamstresses and tailors can do wonders with old dresses. Be open-minded!
Offer your wedding gown, but don't force it.
10. Discuss wedding outfits with the mother of the groom. This may seem trivial, but having the mothers coordinate is a wonderful bonding experience! Plus, it is tradition (and polite) to share your look for the wedding. Also, as the head matrons, your look will set the tone for the wedding. The mother of the groom doesn’t want to outshine you (we hope) and wouldn’t it be horrible if you wore the same thing? Share!
