Customize your bridesmaid dress color with For Her and For Him! 16.04.2013

“Whoever said that money can’t buy happiness, simply didn’t know where to go shopping”

- Bo Derek

Bo Derek you speak the truth! Here are a couple of facts – sometimes a gal needs a little pick-me-up in the form of a shopping spree. Also, when a gal embarks on a wedding shopping spree, the experience is taken to a whole new level of fun.

That being said, having a happy shopping experience can definitely be a challenge. Thank you crowds and sold out items. But here’s the good news, that’s all changing thanks to a new era of fashion shopping and a company called For Her and For Him. Yep, shopping online can now give you that happy experience you’ve been seeking.

What’s more, For Her and For Him have recently launched a new “Custom Color” service because they understand how stressful it can be for brides to find the perfect color for their bridesmaid dresses. Brides simply send the colors they have in mind to For Her and For Him and they will find the perfect color match, from thousands of both online and offline color options. Now, can I get an “Amen” up in here?

Custom-Color-Service

They’ve also recently released over 60 new dresses to their already bursting inventory of stunning Bridesmaid Dresses.

For those of you with a more classic sensibility, For Her and For Him has released around 30 new vintage bridesmaid dresses. This collection will provide your bridesmaids with a classic and memorable look that will turn your wedding day into a truly memorable event.

Why not glam up your wedding day with theses vintage frocks:

Reiss 17.10.2011

Oh, Kate—you looked absolutely marvelous in that Shola dress you wore to meet the Obamas last May!

Such was the feeling of thousands of other women the moment they saw her in that nude dress from Reiss, the British fashion brand that’s been around since 1971. They were originally a menswear label but branched out to womenswear in 2000.

Wait. Let’s go back to Kate. Only about 1,000 Shola dresses were made by Reiss, which all sold out within hours of her wearing it. Their website also crashed as shoppers everywhere rushed to buy the dress. And there’s still a waiting list for the others who weren’t able to grab one, but founder David Reiss only had 600 more made when he could have cashed in on the event and had thousands more produced. But he doesn’t want cheap, mass-produced clothing.

And we agree. Reiss has that rare mix of luxury tailoring and a reasonable price tag—their pieces are always modern, youthfully elegant, but not loudly glam. And that’s why Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Cambridge is a loyal Reiss customer. She simply loves their dresses, and they have always been very private about it.

“She chose us because we are not always issuing press statements about who is wearing one of our dresses on the red carpet,” adds David. “She has shopped with us for years, and we never once let anyone know. We have always been very understated.”

Well, now we know where she shops! And we’re happy about it. Now let’s get on to the fabulous frocks they have online. These would be amazing as bridesmaids dresses…

“We’re a design-led, iconic, modern, sexy label,” says Reiss brand director Andy Burling. “We act and think as a luxury brand, and design that way, too.” Their design team travels the world for design inspiration, like they do at brands like Stella McCartney and Louis Vuitton.

Reiss is currently not stocked in Australia, but no worries, ladies. They are carried by stockists all over the world. And you can get around this by setting up a UPS postal address with a mail forwarding company. Easy, huh?
