It’s most likely that your bridesmaids all have different personalities, styles and let’s be honest probably body types. What might look amazing on one bridesmaid might look just alright on another. With the hot trend of mismatched bridesmaid dresses, let your favourite gals shine when they stand next to you in dresses that complement them in every way. Below are a few ways on how to apply this trend to your bridesmaids.
- Same dress in different colours
- Same dress in different lengths
- Same colour, different dress
- Same colour, different textures and/or patterns
- Same dress, different accessories or beauty looks
- Same colour, length, fabric, different dress
- Same designer, different dress

Being a self-proclaimed beauty junkie I have sampled and tested a variety of different makeup products, one most recent being waterproof mascaras. Not only are waterproof mascaras great during the heat of the summer months or while on vacation, but they are a must for weddings. Below are my top five waterproof mascaras that provide great long-wear coverage and, of course, amazing smudge and tear resistance!

Yes, most women love the traditional offerings of flowers, perfume and jewelry, but every woman has something specific that tugs harder at her heart strings. Here are some suggestions to inspire creative thought for how to really love on your mama this year. Notice the common thread of offering your time. This is arguably the greatest commodity of our world today, so it means that much more when you freely give of yours.
Bliss Yoga Spa
While massages, pedicures and facials have likely been on the Mother’s Day gift roster before, we assure you, your mother has never experienced a spa treatment like the ones offered at Bliss. As the name so aptly states, this spa is bliss. It’s the perfect treat for a hard working mother in need of some calm pampering and time to unwind, but it’s made even better when enjoyed together as you sip tea in the relaxing spa lounge pre and post treatment.
Jacek Chocolate Tasting Experience
This local chocolatier offers two hour chocolate tastings to thrill your senses and create an unforgettable experience while giving you an understanding of the chocolate making process. Learn about the art of fine chocolate and taste an assortment of different flavours. It’s fun and tasty, but best of all, you’re sure to create memories during this unique experience together.
Gifts need not be expensive to make a significant impact. In fact, so often the most cherished gifts are the ones most thought out, not instantaneously purchased. A well crafted card or personal letter detailing exactly what you appreciate and love about your mother is a guaranteed tear jerker. It gives examples of what you love about your relationship with her and highlights why you are proud that so much of who she is has become a part of who you are. Gush about her! Stroke her ego. Don’t take for granted that she knows how you feel. Forego the mall hunting for the “perfect gift” and spend time spelling it out instead.
Acts of Service
Wash all her windows, clear out her cupboards, scrub her baseboards, organize her boxes of photos in the basement, clean up her yard. This call to action is for the mother whose love language is Acts of Service. For her, offering your time and elbow grease registers much higher on her appreciation scale than a Tiffany’s box tied with beautiful ribbon.

Modern Urban Attire
What does this couple have that no other couple has? Swag. This wedding attire is youthful and fun, but never at the price of style. The bride and groom are quintessentially “cool” and take every liberty to use fashion as a means of portraying who they are. The bride takes regular fashion cues from Whitney Port, Marion Cotillard and Nicole Richie and keeps her eye on the latest runway collections. But, don’t be fooled; this groom is equally interested in lookin’ fresh. While he’s not Googling the “What’s Hot” fashion lists, he is very aware of his personal style and owns it with confidence. Both the bride and groom are fashion savvy and experiment with trends. Never afraid to dress outside the box, even for what many consider a traditional ceremony, the urban couple takes full advantage of this occasion as their macro fashion moment.
Modern Bold Minimalist Attire
Three little words. Suit and tie. This is the essence of bold and minimal. While most brides gluttonously feed on all of the attention at any other wedding, the bold minimalists boast a breathtaking groom. He doesn’t need the attention; it just happens. Bridesmaids and groomsmen are pristine and tailored in sleek, clean lines of black, white or grey. This bride never tries too hard. She is the epitome of, “when you got it, you got it.” She carries herself with such poise that a striking groom is her best and only necessary accessory. Bringing us full circle to that suit and tie. Preach it, Timberlake.

The vibrant personality of this eclectic bride shows in her style for her big day. Proof of this is in her old fashioned hair and her modern coloured dress. Letting each bridesmaid personality show with different style of dresses and shoes, even mixing prints and solids. Hand stitched hankies make a great gift that will wipe away the tears of joy.
This is where the earthy eclectic bride’s feminine side comes out, choosing a simple flowing dress with feathers or fresh water pearl accessories. She keeps it natural with hair and makeup and won’t forget her signature floral perfume. The groom is a masculine balance paring traditional trousers with a printed bow tie and suspenders.
