A few months ago I got married but before then I went through two years of being engaged, and planning my wedding. One of my favourite parts was buying my wedding dress, and choosing the bridesmaid dresses.
I've always been a very sure person. I got my wedding dress from the first wedding dress store I visited, and I chose the first dress I tried on. I knew exactly what I wanted my wedding cake to look like, how the arbour would be designed, and of course, the man I wanted to marry.
What makes the perfect bridesmaid dress?
But one of the hardest things to wrangle during the wedding planning process was the bridesmaid dresses. All of the bridesmaids had different body types, different heights, and different styles. While some loved what I wanted which was the fairytale wedding with flowy pink dresses, the others wanted body hugging dresses that showed off the booty that squats gave them.
Little did I know that there existed a dress that met both parties desires: a dress that flowed like the waters of a stream but showed off your bodies in only the most flattering ways.
And where did I find this mythical dress that can only be a blessing to brides to be, and their beautiful bridesmaids? Loreta.
What is Loreta?
LORETA is an affordable women’s online boutique based in Melbourne, Australia that specialises in high quality, custom made clothing that is custom sold only at LORETA.
Their dresses start from $99.95AUD, and go up to $399.95. Their shipping costs $10 flat rate within Australia, and $30 worldwide. To make purchasing your dream dress even more affordable, LORETA also offers Zip, and Afterpay.
What is the ultimate bridesmaid dress I found?
Coincidentally, the dream bridesmaid dress I found is called ‘Day Dream’ which is LORETA’s multi-way dress. It comes in both champagne, and blush, and costs $99.95 each.
LORETA also knows us brides love a good bargain so you can order a set of 2 (champagne, and blush) for a bundle rate of $149.95.
They stock this dress in Australian sizes 6 to 14. In my photos here I’m wearing Australian size 10 paired with LORETA's 'Silver Pumps'
The ‘Day Dream’ is made of premium satin fabric, and is not see-through at all. While thick, it is also breathable.
Due to the multi-way design, the ‘Day Dream’ dress can be tied in multiple styles to best suit the body of the woman wearing it.
I absolutely love the plunging front, and how the dress accentuates my curves at the waist, and hugs my hips while still being flowy in design.
I must note that the fabric is not stretchy so please ensure you look at the size guide first!
As many brides do nowadays, there's also a gift wrapping option you can opt into for your order which is a mere $7. They'll neatly wrap it in branded tissue paper, and the put it in their signature black, and gold lined cardboard gift box to really make a statement!
So brides to be, is this the bridesmaid dress of your dreams?
