Down the aisle

I was so excited when one of my best friends from college asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. First, how adult. A bridesmaid. I have friends who are getting married while I sit at home watching Adventure Time eating leftover chips and salsa from last weekend’s Mexican take-out. Second, A NEW DRESS.

Aw yes, that is the best part about wedding season, especially in the summer. It gives me an excuse to buy a pretty little sparkly dress to dance awkwardly in. I’ve been eyeing a lot of dresses at WeddingShe.com, a helpful website with affordable dresses in a ton of styles. I have my eye on a few that may fit my friend’s aqua-colored dress code for her wedding party.

For other bridesmaid options, I recommend checking out the long purple bridesmaid dresses of WeddingShe that are sure to get attention at your next bridal soiree…or at least look beautiful while you’re sipping champagne and dancing your heart out to Justin Timberlake on the dance floor. I may join you. And for a general selection of bridesmaid dresses, go here.

WeddingShe also has a diverse selection of wedding and prom gowns, and quinceañera dresses, which makes me so so happy. I love a good quinceañera dress, even if I never personally had one, and appreciate their inclusion of gowns for this special day in a Latina’s life. Mine was white and rather simple, while the dresses at WeddingShe are fit for the super fun parties I went to as a teenager. They have a wide range of short and long styles under $150, which is a great price for anyone working at a part-time job while finishing high school.

Be sure to check out WeddingShe if you’re on the hunt for a formal dress this summer. Looking great doesn’t have to cost a lot, and there is no such thing as too much sparkle.

Thank you to WeddingShe for sponsoring this post.
