Ladies looking for stylish, flattering and affordable bridesmaids dresses – go grab yourself a cuppa and fetch your diary because this one is for you!
Our friend Michaela, founder of Maid with Style London has been in touch to tell us about a super-fun sounding ‘Bridesmaids Brunch’ event taking place in November, that we think you’re going to love the sound of. More on that in just a moment – please allow me first to properly introduce you to Maid With Style are and tell you why they’re so flipping marvellous.
Maid with Style is a brilliant website concept that brings together all the best bridesmaids looks and styles into one easy to explore online resource. The website brings together looks by colour, because, let’s face it, the colour is usually the first aspect we think of when searching for our bridesmaids gowns. And thus, you can search for dresses in yellows, blues and greens, pinks and purples, ivory and whites, reds (adore that belter below), greys and blacks, separates (skirts/tops) and other gorgeous bridesmaids bits and bobs.
Some of the most popular and sought after bridesmaids brands are listed, including the wonderful TH&TH (timeless, effortless style), Rewritten London (modern, sophisticated and fashion forward), Jarlo London (Hollywood glamour and vintage inspired decadence), Constellation Ame (sophisticated luxury and elegance), Willow & Pearl (stylish, diverse, multiway gowns) and Motee Maids (elegant, contemporary and affordable). But the site links to other brilliant British highstreet brands too who are killing it in the fancy frock department, including Ghost, Monsoon, Ted Baker, Whistles, Needle & Thread, Reiss and River Island.
This superb idea means that you don’t need to have 63 tabs open in your Internet browser as you try to shop and compare bridesmaids dress styles online (been there!). Instead, you can view them all from a single, sweet and very stylish website – each dress being only a single click away from purchasing online should you wish to do so.
So now you know what Maid With Style is, let’s find out more about this special event they’re hosting in November, which I’m stoked to discover is being sponsored and styled by the exceptionally very lovely Valentina of The Stars Inside (who quite frankly is one of the loveliest humans I have ever met in wedding world – and meet her I did, at this year’s Most Curious Wedding Fair).
This is actually the second ‘Bridesmaids Brunch’ being hosted by Maid With Style. Their inaugural event last year was such a huge and brilliant success that Michaela and her team are making an annual occasion out of it. Let’s find out more from Michaela…
