Wedding Dresses for 2015

Mermaid v-neck on sale now for 2015, only $425.43 in USD custom made for you. Is that crazy? 

Spring has Spring at Least in Wedding Dresses 2015

It’s that time of year when fashion trends walk the catwalk showing off the best wedding styles to expect for 2015.  Many of us can’t even think that far in advance, unless you are a doting bride-to-be or groom-to be.  If so, you already planning your wedding to happen next Spring or Summer and excited as anything!   As of late, soon to be newlyweds are booking places to have their receptions and weddings, lgining up caterers, and selecting everything from the invitation to the trying on of dresses. The last thing brides seem to settle on is the dress. So many choices and so important.

 Couture Fashions at a Fraction of the Price

What’s Trending

Many sites like Milly Bridal are being hit hard with requests from US customers. Although the site is in the UK, they offer worldwide shipping. They are one of the leading fashion bridal sites, even having to put a special button on the top of the page with six available currencies. Why is this?  One wedding planner, Liz Heinreicher has an opinion on the matter. “I think that London and Paris have better fashions available more quickly than the US.  Sites like MB are jumping on the bandwagon and custom tailoring orders.  We attribute this to them having first hand glances at what big fashion houses are making. They are pre-selling when the US is still waiting on the dresses to come in.”

 This price is so low we can’t believe it, $251 for this dress.

The Perfect Fit?

So the issue is how can one try on a dress via mail or fell secure ordering it?    Heinreicher says, ” Case in point, Milly Bridal offer FREE shipping worldwide, and does custom work with high quality fabrics, sequins, beads, and thread. This custom work is couture to your needs, meaning you are getting the equivalent of a “designer fashion house” dress at a fraction of the price.  The fact you communicate on every little measurement ensure there is no room for their dressmakers making you a dress that’s not fitting you perfectly. In the rare example you aren’t happy, there’s a return policy with restock fee. Even if a bride-to-be goes through two or three tries, she’s still spending a quarter of what you would spend for a custom made dress from a large fashion house, or a popular dress at a big box retailer.  The reality is, it’s worth the gamble in more ways than one and the big retail stores are getting hit hard by this.”

Wedding Dress 2015

How can this dress be only $245?

We are amazed at some of the low prices. The question we had is how can a site like Milly Bridal afford to offer such great bargains at these type prices?   It’s simple law of addition. Lower prices, more selection attracts more shoppers. More shoppers at lower prices will reach higher sales volume and overall, more profit. They may have to work harder, but please one bride who tells her friend, and her mother, and her bridesmaids (they have dresses for all of the wedding party) and soon they have the whole wedding cake.  Good for them.

What do you think ?

Grilling For Dummies

Posted on
Grilling For Dummies

We always thought grilling takes some form of fashion, from red hot heels to bright red grill, now you can be in style with your fashionista chic little cow cutting board. This board is inspired by news of a recent “Grilling Museum and Factory Tour” being given to barbecue gurus by Big Fat Daddy’s Pitmaster Wayne Schafer. Now you can send your loved one to a tour of the Pitmaster’s Playground, and obtain a small mini educational tour on the history of meats, meat packing, dry rubs and more. Not bad for something to do, huh.  When of course, you’re not shopping.

You can read more on the tours on Etsy shop, Big Fat Daddy’s, or click here:
