New Ideas

Metallics are hot for spring. They are showing up on shoes, makeup and are even hot for favors. You can use one or more metallic colors as a running theme.


Dear Cheap-Chic-Weddings,

I am getting married in April. Is it appropriate for my bridesmaids to wear black dresses?



Dear Jenna,

First of all, it’s your wedding! Do whatever you like! Black is always beautiful and elegant. Just a few tips, Black will probably look best for an evening or formal to semi-formal wedding. It wouldn’t really look right on the beach. Also, be mindful of the climate where you live. Some material is hotter than others. You wouldn’t want to wear velvet in 90 degree weather.

Best Wishes,


Love It.........Hate It

Love It:

1. Fruit colors for spring. Look for bridesmaids dresses in mango, lime, orange and raspberry.

2. Drippy chandelier earrings. They don’t have to be expensive ones. Just romantic looking!

3. Getting in shape mentally and physically before the big day. You choose how to go about it!

Hate It:

* Really sloppy food at the reception, like spaghetti. Who wants spots all over their nice clothes?
