Lovelies, are you ready for a serious dose of bridesmaid dress eye candy? Well, get ready because we’re about to share a sneak peek of the crazy beautiful new 2014 styles in the Ceremony by Joanna August Collection! With six new body types (all available in long + short) as well as a gorgeous convertible dress and stunning new colors, let’s just say, you’re in for a real treat! The best part? Joanna August is hosting a contest letting you name the color of their new peach hue (see details below).

With the addition of three new styles of the Joanna August Signature Wrap Dress, as well as the convertible Tatum — which can be tied more than six ways — your maids are going to have a hard time choosing their favorite! Also debuting are “hard belts” which can totally transform the look of your Joanna August dress from ethereal to structured + classic. How smart is that?!  Never failing to keep her dresses on trend, Joanna August is excited to add champagne lace to the Ceremony Collection as well as 3 new chiffon colors:  Silver Bells, Blue Moon and a shade of Peach


The beautiful new styles are available for pre-order now through retailers and on the Joanna August site, and will be available to try on in stores this December. The Ceremony by Joanna August 2013-2014 Trunk Show Calendar is now available with shows running November- April nationwide (see local retailers here).  Schedule an appointment at your local retailer to receive 10% off your trunk show purchase!

And here’s where you come in, my dears — Joanna August is hosting a contest to name their new peach hue and the winner will receive a free Ceremony by Joanna August dress! All colors must be song titles. “Peach” does not need to be in the title, but the song title should reference or evoke the color. View the Ceremony Color Card to check out the names of the current colors. If more than one person submits the same song title and that title is chosen, the first submission will be the winner and the 2nd will receive a 10% off coupon. Contest submissions should be made through the Joanna August website contact page with SMP CONTEST as the subject line. Submissions must be made by November 1, 2013 at midnight, and winners will be announced on the website on Saturday November 2, 2013. Good luck! xo
