The Colors of Fall

Fall is such a beautiful time of year. It occurs in late September through the month of October and can even stretch into the beginning of November. Every year at this time, the countryside transforms into a beautiful landscape with shades of yellow, gold, orange and brown – all of different degrees and hues. These colors mix together to create a shimmering sea of gorgeous color that can take on many forms. Sometimes it appears to be a beautiful translucent sunset while others appear to be a fiery color with hints of yellow and gold. Regardless of how the colors come together, fall is without-a-doubt one of the most beautiful times of the year.

All the colors of fall such as yellow, gold, orange and brown have inspired many decorators around the world. The colors go so well together, regardless of whether they are decorating a bedroom or creating a fashionable gown. Many fall weddings have incorporated these colors for decorations. Not only are they beautiful colors, but they also are very warm and inviting colors. One really can’t go wrong when using these colors for a fall wedding. When bridesmaids and flower girls wear dresses in any of these shades and carry flowers combining the other colors, it creates a wedding full of color and warmth! If you love yellow, gold, orange and brown, but can’t decide between them – choose to combine them all for a gorgeous and unforgettable fall wedding theme!

Wedding colors: The Soothing Shade of Sage

Think of the color sage as a laid back shade of green. The color green is a bright color that symbolizes life and energy. Sage is just a mellower version of that. While it does still represent life and energy because it is a shade of green, the color sage is a very peaceful and relaxing color. It is a popular choice for bedrooms, sitting rooms and bathrooms for this reason. Day Spas also incorporate sage into their décor. The color just has a way of promoting tranquility and it is hard not to feel rejuvenated after spending a few quite moments surrounded by the soothing color sage.

While sage is great for relaxing, it is also a great choice for summer weddings, outdoor dinner parties and other summer events. The color is very soothing and, when used appropriately, can also be used to transmit feelings of love and commitment. Brides who choose to use sage as one of their wedding colors often feel more relaxed throughout the course of their big day. Likewise, hosts of outdoor dinner parties or other summer events can use the color sage as a way to neutralize the environment, creating a peaceful atmosphere where every guest feels relaxed and at home. If you are planning an event and are in need of a color with soothing qualities, then sage is a perfect choice!

Turquoise: A True Gem of a Color

There are some colors that just make you happy and feel good. Turquoise is one of those colors. It is a mixture of blue and green, and sometimes has a yellowish tint to it as well. Turquoise got its name after the gem, Turquoise. Turquoise, the gem, has a long history dating back long before the birth of Christ. The Egyptians from the First Dynasty mined the stone from the Sinai Peninsula. It was also discovered by the Persians, in the area now known as Iran. As many know, Turquoise is heavily mined in the United States today. It is prevalent in many southern states including Arizona, Nevada and California. This beautiful gem is used primarily for jewelry and other fashion products.

The color Turquoise is just as beautiful as the gem and is also primarily used in fashion. However, it can also be used as an accent color in home décor as well. When one sees the shimmering blue-green color known as turquoise, it is hard to take your eyes off of it. The color has a tendency to make us feel happier and uplifted. Perhaps, this is why it is a popular choice for summer weddings. Retailers such as KidsFormal.com sell many turquoise flower girl dresses every spring and summer. The color is just fun, happy and uplifting – truly making it a gem of a color!

Summer Wedding

Good Afternoon and Happy July!

We’re not sure about you, but the summer sure is flying by for those of us at Kids Formal! Before you know it, it will be time to start shopping for presents and pretty Christmas dresses for the kids! But, that’s still several months away so, for now, lay back and enjoy the summer sun!

While summertime is the busiest time for weddings, it’s also one of the best times to celebrate an engagement. Most couples spend at least a year planning the perfect wedding, so those who want to get married next summer are still in the planning stage now! For this reason, we felt that it would be helpful to provide our loyal customers with a newsletter with helpful tips for planning a summer wedding!

  • Decide where you want your wedding and reception, and don’t hesitate to get it reserved! Doing this a year in advance is best, but it’s pertinent that you do it at least six months in advance.
  • If you are planning an outdoor wedding, be sure to have a “Plan B” in case the weather doesn’t cooperate.
  • Pick exciting summery colors for your wedding. Pastels are great, but bold colors such as yellow, orange and red are beautiful too!
  • Consider using exotic or tropical flowers for the wedding.
  • When it comes time to go dress shopping, look for dresses made of materials that will allow the bride to stay cool! Stay away from thick and heavy dresses.
    When picking bridesmaids dresses, look for fabric that is fun and lightweight.
  • Thin cotton dresses or short party dresses are always fun for summer weddings!
  • For the little ones in the wedding, keep their attire fun and cool too! Summer weddings are no fun for flower girls and ring bearers when they’re hot. And, when the little ones aren’t happy, everyone will hear about it! Consider a lightweight cotton dress for the flower girl and a boy’s tuxedo featuring short dress pants for the ring bearer. KidsFormal.com has some great summer formal wear options for the little ones in your wedding.
  • For the reception, keep the menu light and full of color! Salads, fruits and fresh veggies with a variety of dips are great items for summer wedding menus.
  • Most importantly, have fun!

Planning a wedding can be very stressful and time consuming. Our goal at KidsFormal.com is to help reduce that stress!

Wedding Attire Tips

Are you in the beginning stages of planning a wedding? It all seems overwhelming doesn’t it? The good news is that once you get started, you’ll pick up speed and get through it. However, there are some important things you need to keep in mind when shopping for your wedding dress, flower girl dresses and other formal wear to be worn in your wedding.

  • Hold Out for “The One” – You hear a lot of women talk about how they just can’t justify spending a lot of money on a wedding dress and how “it’s only going to be worn for a few hours.” Well, let me tell you something…if you settle for an “okay” dress that doesn’t make you fall in love with it because it’s cheaper, you’re most likely going to regret it for years to come.
    There are a lot of areas within a wedding that can be “skimped” on, but your wedding dress should not be one of them. This is the one day of your life that is all about you. You deserve to feel beautiful. Therefore, hold out for “the one” and get the dress that takes your breath away. With that being said, you need to order your wedding dress no later than 16 weeks before your wedding, note that 24 weeks ahead is preferred.
  • Flower Girl Dresses Don’t Have to be Expensive – Yes, it is important that the flower girl dresses look cute and fit in with the rest of your wedding party attire, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend a small fortune on the dresses. In fact, in most cases, the flower girl’s family pays for the dress, so you might want to keep the price reasonable. Finally, you have a little more time for order flower girl dresses as they can be ordered up to 8 weeks before the wedding.
  • Bridesmaids Dresses – After the bride’s gown, the bridesmaids’ dresses are the next most important thing on the list. Bridesmaids need to have their dresses ordered no later than 12 weeks prior to the wedding date.  This will ensure they have plenty of time to get alterations done, if necessary. And, if something is wrong with the gown, it gives the bridal shop time to send it back and get a replacement dress in before the wedding date arrives.

If you’ve started planning your wedding, you know there is a lot involved. While you need to lock in your location, photographer, cake decorator, etc. getting the formalwear (wedding dress, bridesmaids’ dresses, flower girl dresses, etc.) chosen is one of the first things that needs to be done. If you order these items within the time frames listed above you won’t have to worry about stressful last-minute wardrobe issues.
