Despite popular misperceptions, it is not only possible to find beautiful, relatively inexpensive wedding dresses, you can also receive them the next day if willing to pay for overnight shipping.  All of the looks featured above are vintage inspired white and cream dresses priced from $75.00 – $400.00 and would be appropriate for all but a black tie wedding.  Complete your wedding day look with headpieces and veils from House of Brides! Keep it  simple and elegant.  For shoes, we recommend sticking with the vintage vibe in a neutral heel.  For us, the height of the heel matters less than the style.  We would stay away from wedges, wood heels, and super casual looks but are not opposed to adding a bit of personality and color if you dare! Vintage Inspired White & Cream Heels

Just an FYI – these dresses are not just for brides.  All would also be appropriate for any summer special occasion including prom!

Ask Your Date to Prom

.I was just on the Jones Soda site and had an aha moment …

Ask your date to prom with a case of personalized, customized soda.

The only hitch is you need to plan well in advance!

As most high school students know, asking your date to prom, homecoming, or other school social is not a simple feat.  A phone call no longer suffice – creativity is expected.  Students are finding more and more creative ways to ask their dates to prom each year.  One year, my son was sent on a scavenger hunt.  My other son was playing a game of co-ed tag football and the question was popped in writing on the football itself.  He still has that ball.  We have seen the invitation delivered with balloons, flowers, and spelled out in the sand.  We even have a local statue which occasionally is seen holding a large “will  you go with me to prom” sign.

As we hear about fun and interesting ways to ask a special someone out on a date, we will continue to update this page.  In the meantime, if you are on the committee planning prom or homecoming be sure to check out our  Prom Themes, Planning Ideas and Supplies party package.
