Dear Valued Customer,

Happy New Year!

Can you believe 2019 is already here? The past year flew by at KidsFormal.com, and now, here it is January 1, 2019. It seems like just yesterday we were worried about the Y2K glitch…and that was 19 years ago!

Now that January is officially here, there are a slew of holidays coming up that may require you to purchase your children some new formal wear. For instance, in just a couple months Valentine’s Day will be here, which is when many families like to take family pictures. After Valentine’s Day, it’s time to start thinking about Easter, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Of course, there will be many of you with children who have birthdays during this time of year too – and yearly pictures will be in order, which requires a new dress or suit!

In addition to all of these great holidays, wedding season is on its way. Several brides may be planning winter weddings in January and February, but the majority of brides are looking at weddings in early spring to late summer – which means now is the time to be ordering the flower girl dresses and ring bearer tuxedos!

We have just added a lot of new products to the website that you should definitely check out. We’re certain that these items won’t last long with all of the formal events coming up shortly. Of course, we are always adding new products, but if you see something you like now then you better order it because, with our prices, it won’t be here long.

We do understand that Christmas was less than a month ago and that many of you are watching your finances as a result. So, as a New Year’s present to you, we are offering a 20% discount off any order with free shipping – regardless of how much your order comes to. There is no minimum order requirement! All you need to do is enter the coupon code “holiday20” at the time of check out. But hurry, because this offer is only good through today – January 1st!

At KidsFormal.com we want to wish you a very Happy New Year – and we hope that the entire year of 2019 brings you and your family many blessings!

Sincerely,

Your Friends at KidsFormal.com

Determining Which Colors Look Best on You

When women choose formal wear, it’s important that they know which colors look best on them for a couple of reasons. First, the wrong colors can make your skin looked washed out and do nothing to help your appearance. Second, formal dresses can be expensive so why buy something that doesn’t flatter you? In order to know what colors work best on you, you need to know what skin tone you have. Skin tones can be broken up into seasons, so let’s figure out what season you are!


  • Spring – Those with a Spring skin tone often have golden blond, light brown or red hair. Their skin may contain freckles and often has a “rosy” glow. Eye color for those with Spring skin tones is generally hues of blue or blue-green. The colors that flatter these women the most include soft colors like pink, peach and yellow. Because this is considered a warm skin tone, warm colors like light browns and greens also work well.

  • Summer – In contrast to Spring, the Summer skin tone is a cool tone. Women with this skin tone usually are natural blondes and even some brunettes. The skin color is very light and the colors that look best are more muted, soft colors. Bright and powerful colors easily overpower the skin and make it looked washed out.

  • Autumn – The Autumn skin tone is another warm skin tone. Most often this describes women red or dark brown hair. Their skin has a golden tone to it and the eyes are usually shades of green or brown. Very warm and rich colors look best on these women. For instance, brown, purple, green, burnt orange, etc. bring out the best in women with this skin tone.

  • Winter – Winter toned women usually have some Asian or African heritage in their blood as their skin tone is full of depth and contrast. Their eyes are generally very dark and deep, rich colors look best. Brightly colored clothing only enhances the natural beauty within the skin of these women. Make sure you stay away from light, bland colors as they are unflattering if you are a Winter woman!

Having Trouble Picking a Wedding Date?

As you know, one of the most important things newly engaged couples have to do is pick a wedding date. In fact, that’s really the first thing that has to be done because without a date, it’s practically impossible to plan a wedding! While weddings are always special days to remember, many couples want their actual wedding date to be special which can make selecting a date difficult. Below are a few ideas if you are trying to decide on a wedding date.

  • The First Date – If you can remember the exact date of your very first date together, then scheduling your wedding for that date is a great way to honor the date that brought you both together forever!
  • A Family Member’s Birthday/Anniversary – If you are very close to someone in your family, then planning a wedding for his/her birthday is a unique way to recognize how important he/she is to you. Perhaps you have a grandmother and grandfather whose relationship has been an inspiration to you (and your fiance), getting married on their anniversary is another unique way to honor these special people in your life.
  • Special “Yearly” Dates – Every year, it seems like there is an opportunity to get married on a historical date. For instance, this year it happens to be today: 11/11/11 and next year, it will be on 12/12/12…dates like these only happen once every century which is why so many couples gravitate to these days. However, you don’t have to get married on a date like this for it to be a special “yearly” date. For instance, you could get married on October 11, 2012 and it would be 10/11/12. There are many ways to play with the dates if you are looking to make your wedding date special and easy to remember!

Fun Wedding Dress Myths

At KidsFormal.com, we like to have fun especially when brides are trying to plan their big day and get everyone (including the little ones) on the same page regarding their wedding attire. Therefore, we thought we would take a break from the more serious informative blog posts and share a few fun wedding dress myths. However, don’t take these seriously as there isn’t any proof that these are true! 
 

  • Myth #1 – A Bride Shouldn’t Make Her Own Dress.  This myth states that for every stitch that a bride sews on her own wedding gown represents one tear that will be shed by her during the marriage.
  • Myth #2 – Brides Shouldn’t Put All Their Bridal Wear On Before the Wedding. Basically, this wedding dress myth states that it is very bad luck for a bride to put her entire wedding day wardrobe (dress, veil, shoes, jewelry, slip, etc.) on, all at once, before the wedding day. The myth says that if this is done, the wedding will not take place.
  • Myth #3 – Colored Wedding Gowns. This is myth is in the form of a poem and it goes like this:“If Married in Blue they said your lover is true. Married in Pink, Your fortunes will sink. Married in Green, You will not long be seen. Married in Red, You’ll wish you were dead. Married in Yellow, you are Ashamed of the fellow. Married in Brown, You’ll live out of town. Married in Grey, You’ll live far away. Married in Black, You’ll wish you were back.”

The three wedding dress myths are meant for fun and should not be taken seriously. I’m sure you know someone who as broken one (or more) of these myths and have gone on to have long and happy marriages!
