My youngest cousin got married this past weekend (insert Crying Face Emoji). She was a STUNNING bride and the ceremony and reception were both beautiful. We hadn’t been to a wedding since last summer, so I was definitely ready for an excuse to get all dressed up!
This dress was kindly sent to me by Azazie, an online boutique that sells made-to-order bridesmaid and wedding dresses. They have SO many adorable dresses to choose from — and it took me a long time to decide — but I finally chose the Azazi Mattie in emerald green. I fell in love with it because it’s all business in the front…
…and a party in the back!
You know how they say there’s no such thing as a bridesmaid dress you’ll wear again? I beg to differ. I wore this dress as just a wedding guest, proving it’s a dress you really WILL wear again.
Now’s the part of the program where I give you my honest opinion about Azazie … I highly recommend them! I’ve been a bridesmaid my fair share of times. I don’t know about you, but when it came to dresses from typical bridal stores, I had the same experience with every single one: They took my measurements for the dress, encouraged me to size up, and then once the dress came in, I’d be SWIMMING in it. Then they’d have to make significant alterations that cost almost as much as the dress.
When you purchase from Azazie, there are a couple options when it comes to sizing. You can either select a standard dress size (they offer 2 through 26w!), and they will actually do a “Size Check” based on your bra size and your favorite dress brand to make sure you chose the best size for your measurements. OR, you can provide your measurements and they will custom make a dress for you at no extra charge. I was a little nervous about getting my measurements right, but they provide simple instructions that were a big help. Chris helped me take my measurements, and I would recommend having someone help you. When the dress arrived, I was very impressed with the fit … no alterations needed!
Another major perk of Azazie is all of their color choices. The dress I received is available in 40 colors! If I was a bride-to-be or a bridesmaid who needed to find her own dress, I would not hesitate to buy from Azazie.
I’ll leave you with a couple shots from the reception:
