Bridesmaid Dress to Date Night Impress!

Happy Friday, everyone!

Spring & summer tends to boast a lot of weddings. If you’ve had the honor of partaking in these events as part of the wedding party, you know the struggles of bridesmaid dresses. While I think the idea of ugly bridesmaid dresses is rather exaggerated, there is still the myth that you can’t wear your bridesmaid dress after the bride & groom says “I do.” Here are a few tips to turn your bridesmaid dress into a beautiful date night outfit!

  • Makeup

Makeup can be taken up a notch when going out for a night on the town. Using darker colors for your lips & eye shadows makes your bridesmaid dress feel more date-like. Use purples, reds, blacks, & blues for a beautiful face!

  • Jewelry

This is another instance where bolder is better. Add a statement necklace, earrings, or rings to make your dress stand out. Statement necklaces are my personal favorite, & give a chic look to a would-be bridesmaid dress.

  • Shoes

The sky’s the limit with your shoes! The higher the heel, the more date-like the outfit. Strappy heels also give a date night vibe & flirty look!

  • Clutch

Have fun with your clutch! A unique clutch makes your outfit stand out in the best way!

  • Alterations

Don’t be afraid to have alterations made on your dress. Whether you shorten, add fabric, change the color, the possibilities are endless!

Many stores & shops are taking the bridesmaid dress from wedding to date night. Weddington Way is no exception! They have beautiful bridesmaid dresses in numerous colors & styles that could easily be transformed into date night attire. Here are a few of my favorites:

 Don’t be afraid to give your bridesmaid dress a second chance! You may just love it even more!

I just love adding girly touches to a room! Simple things such as color, texture, or even smells can make a room instantly more feminine. I personally love pops of color & flowers!

The Fourth of July is tomorrow! This is a proud day for Americans. It commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from Great Britain. I am so proud to be an American! We have so many freedoms & rights that many countries couldn’t imagine having. We are beyond blessed, & I hope that we continue to remember where we have been, where we come from, & where we hope to be in the future.
Now, on to the fashion!
While I think it is great to wear items with the American flag print, it can be difficult to wear the items after the Fourth. I tend to opt for a more color-coordinated option. I go for the colors of red, white, & blue. I actually plan to wear the dress pictured here. It is by Lilly Pulitzer for Target. The accessories are what I’d wear if I had both the money & means to buy them. It think it is a perfect summer look! You’ll feel festive, stay cool, & look fabulous!
