Completing the Bridal Ensemble

We have the dress, now what?

A list of the things a bride needs to complete her outfit for the big day!

What: The bustier/corset

Why: You still need something under the dress to hold up your ladies – even if there is a built-in bodice.

Where: Yakima Boutiques or even, try some of the Ebay stores that sell new items for a cheaper price.

What: slip

Why: this is optional – some need it for that extra “fluff” under their dress, though most dresses have it built-in

Where: see bustier/corset



 What: the shoes – a major part of the outfit

Why: our tootsie’s need a little fashion too

Where: Yakima Boutiques  and Payless Shoe Source have great options.

**Payless is currently having their BOGO sale – a great steal if you get your BM’s shoes there!**

You can also try places online, such as My Glass Slipper, Dyeable Shoe Store and Bridal Shoes .

What: jewelry

Why: it’s the icing on the cake – the perfect complement to your perfect dress

Where: Yakima Boutiques , local jewelry places and don’t overlook your fashion hot spots at the mall (e.g., Macy’s, Claire’s, etc.)

A few online resources: TigerLilly Jewelry, Etsy (for a handmade touch) or Tejani.

What: Lacey under garments

Why: You know why

Where: local places or the always fab, Victoria’s Secret

Of course – don’t forget your something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue!

Why is this important?

Happy Shopping (yes – I do believe that should be a capital S)
