I have been madly in love (not to mention completely in awe of) with Ariane Goldman of twobirds bridesmaid since I saw her insanely gorgeous bridesmaid gowns on the Martha Stewart Show years ago. The fact that Ariane actually came up with a design that was as innovative and figure flattering as this, with literally 15 ways to wear it, was beyond me. Frankly, her dresses were and still are some of the coolest things I've ever seen. Plus, she happens to be completely sweet and adorable which makes the brand even more lovable.
So! When Ariane contacted me about doing a giveaway on Style Me Pretty, I jumped!
Before we get to the giveaway, though, I wanted to share a few tips that Ariane shared about choosing the RIGHT gown for your girls...that they will actually love!
Our lovely friends and family come in all shapes and sizes so allow your bridesmaids to choose a silhouette that works best for their body type so that they are glowing as they walk down the aisle.
- Pick a color and/or fabric that's consistent for all the girls, providing consistency for the pictures but enable them to show their individual styles (of course with your approval!)
- Pick a dress that your friends can wear again after the affair. In this economy what's better than buying a fabulous dress for your friend's wedding and then wearing it again for the perfect cocktail party!
- Aim for comfort. Your bridesmaids will be in the dresses for hours celebrating your love so try to find something that they can breathe in and dance all night in!
OK. Now for the part you girls have been waiting to hear all about! Ariane is graciously giving away THREE of her short, aubergine gowns to one lucky bride. All you have to do is leave a comment below, letting us know which one of the gowns from twobird's collection is your favorite. We'll choose the lucky winner on the Monday after Thanksgiving (Nov 30th).
This is possibly the sweetest thing you could do for your maids so make sure to enter! Oh and yep, the top photo is a picture from Alyssa Milano's wedding...so needless to say, your girlfriends will love these dresses!
