Cut-the-Cake Dresses

While big, elaborate wedding gowns are awe-inspiring walking down the aisle, the reception dress, also known as the “cut-the-cake” dress, gives the bride a chance to let her hair down a bit. Going for a shorter, more relaxed dress will not only be more comfortable for the reception meet and greets, it’ll make it easier to have some fun with your guests on the dance floor! It is a celebration after all!

Below are some of our picks!

Fresh Picks: Holiday Party Dresses

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…to party! In this season of what seems to be non-stop celebrations, a great party dress is definitely essential. Whether you opt for demure and ladylike or sparkly and vibrant, the right dress should definitely make an entrance.

Stylist’s Tip: Sequins, lace, pleats and mesh are all gorgeous details we love on party dresses. The problem is they tend to be very delicate, so great care must be taken in freshening them up. We love using the Rowenta Precision Valet Commercial Garment Steamer for de-wrinkling and even freshening up delicate dresses. It’s definitely a handy tool to have around! (A great bonus: You can use this handy tool all over the house, too—from your upholstery to drapes.)

 

We’ve picked out some of our favorite party dresses below. For even more pretty party frocks, check out our Dresses page!

Spring Bridesmaids' Dresses

Vibrant hues are one of the biggest trends in bridesmaids’ dresses, particularly for spring and summer weddings. While the bride is the center of attention, her bridesmaids play an important role, not only as her main support system, but also setting the tone in the overall look of the wedding.

Another trend we’ve been seeing is having each bridesmaid wear a different dress, either in the same color or different complimentary hues. Check out a few of our favorite dresses in the most eye-catching colors for spring!

Prom Season 2012

It’s that time of year again; the time when high school guys and gals get dressed to the nines, don their boutonnieres and corsages and slip into their fancy shoes. Yup, it’s prom season!

If going to the mall just isn't your style (and who really wants to stand in line and deal with poorly-lit dressing rooms anyway?), we’ve got some fabulous dresses, shoes and accessories worthy of prom night.

Here's a fun idea: have your very own "pre-prom fitting party" at home. Invite your friends and try on some dresses and shoes as your friends vote on which ones are keepers for the big night. (It’s ok; we have FREE shipping both ways!)  

Here are just a few of our prom favorites to get you started:
